America Matters.

America Matters.

  "You don't know what you have here. You simply don't know what you have." I doubt if anyone really understood what he meant. He was obviously speaking about America and telling us we did not appreciate what it was.  -jacob needleman    America Matters. He told me that something mattered more than the American [...]

The Saving Grace of Your Self-Respect.

The Saving Grace of Your Self-Respect.

  Wake me up inside Call my name and save me from the dark Bid my blood to run Before I come undone Save me from the nothing I've become. * The journey toward health and sanity is nothing less than an invitation to wake up. - Jon Kabat-Zinn Save me, save me, save me! The internal screams of [...]

The Pursuit of Priceless Matters.

The Pursuit of Priceless Matters.

    I know what I am after, but I can't say I know where it exists. Where does priceless matter lie? This is nothing short of being a gold miner. A gold digger of a different sort -  I am. Digging into the depths of time and space. Looking. Seeking the priceless. The priceless [...]

I Am Poppy.

The small-mind of me, the higher-mind of me, and everything in between. My so-called soul and spirit. Holy it all is. [...]

Learning to Live Loved.

And that's important to mention because you don't give up - you keep going - until you understand. She* was talking about her beliefs and said, "I didn't trust Love." Those words came to me like a power [...]

Enough of Not Enough

Enough of Not Enough

  Swarmed like a plague - of my "not-enoughness" - like a full-blown stress disorder - the internal trauma of lack that destroys my ness. Nothing less than a disease of my soul, upon which I plan to cure. The plan to cure my not-enoughness. To clear out the infection of rejection and to start injecting [...]
