Here’s my problem. My intellect isn’t powerful enough to give me a comfortable place to stand. I’m increasingly sure it takes letting go of those mental tools we are so accustomed to rely on. Reason and logic don’t cut it when it comes to making peace with what it means to be human. The trick, if one can call it that, is to kill my ego and see what’s left. Scary but it needs to be done.

We’re all on one. It’s of our own design. We can change it if we have a mind to.

The older I get, the more I’m troubled by our concept of “self”. To me it tends to necessitate the need for an “other”. This puts these concepts in opposition to each other and that’s where all the trouble starts.

I normally don’t endorse anything. But I’m currently re-reading this book by Alan Watts and I really find it really powerful. Probably more so than before. To make matters even better it’s an easy read as well. For us creative types, I definitely think it should be on your reading list.

This little fellow is made of one ounce of solid sterling silver. My mother got it in Mexico a very long time ago and when she died it came to live with me. It’s funny about owls, they are viewed in various cultures as being either good omens or bad ones. Thats what I like about them. They remind me that events can almost always be viewed from either a positive or negative side. It up to me to decide which one.
By the way my tiny friend is a very optimistic and positive owl.
