Prayer for Healing

The Prayer for Healing was written to encourage people to reflect upon and change the true internal causes of their illness (i.e. disjuncture and misalignment). Note that while this poem emphasizes the internal causes of misalignment and disjuncture, it does not to erase the damage caused by toxins in the environment, or toxic environments. Heal the mind, free the soul, change the world.

Wake Up

Wake up, wake up, wake up, It’s time that we wake up. It’s time to drink from Cup. It’s time to pony up. Three cheers, three cheers, three cheers, Let’s walk through all our fears, Let’s stand up and be clear, Let’s wipe away the tears. Rejoice, Rejoice Rejoice, For God has made the choice, […]

Dweller in the Dark

Dweller in the dark, Walking in the park, Fending of the shark, Is this all that life can be? Dweller in the dark, Inside is a spark, Trumpet rings thee hark Time has come for you to see. Dweller in the dark, Look for path to ark. Venal is the dark, Dark ones they laugh […]


Wake up in the morning open eyes and now what do I see. Chaos all around with violence, hatred, and vile spew you see. Devil’s in the house my spouse says life ain’t what it used to be. Can’t disagree I’m free but all around me spawn dance gleefully. Guns and war and hatred threaten […]

The Leap

The next evolutionary leap, Does not come in a jeep, Does not make people weep. Is not just for black sheep. Is not Ram’s greedy bleet. Is not worship at feet. Is not pedophile’s creep. Is not greed’s evil seep. ’tis the end of old world. Is Divine now unfurled. Is the Promise we keep, […]

We asked politely

We asked politely, we really did, Sent emissary, tweaked up your lid. Said time is coming, its close at hand. Please lead God’s children, to promised land. But still sell fire, still invoke war. Still value silence, the devil’s whore. Still burn your billions, still worship brand. Still watch as violence, spreads through the land. […]

if hackers controlled the ‘verse Guys would be well endowed Girls would walk tall and proud. People would die each day, But rise like a lump of clay. We’d all have a power, you see, We’d all fight for good and be free. We’d all bring the system to ground. We’d all wear a glorious […]

In the desert

In the desert, in the summer, where the hippies burn the man, Comes a silent devolution, to an ego’s stupid plan. As the youngest and the “brightest,” billionaires in fancy cloths, Come with private gold oasis, Bring their shiny metal thrones. In the desert, in the dry east, where they first did see the star, […]

It ain’t going to be like the sixties

You know… It ain’t going to be like the sixties Where the sisters were holding hands, And the brothers were wearing flowers, And the hippies did not withstand. No it ain’t going to be like the sixties, When “the powers” they got control, And the world sighed a bitter sadness, As The System killed the […]

I’m not here…

I’m not here to tell you that the old world is winding down, Or that the crazy crackling crown is  going to shred  your Earthly gown. I’m not here to tell you that the world is winding down, I’m just here to bring you Word of a new day. I’m not here to say you […]

The Crucifixion Syndrome

Many people believe that being spiritual means being open, trusting, and loving. While that is certainly true, it also does not mean being vulnerable, soft, and exposed. The World as yet remains a greedy, violent, and dangerous place and you serve no one, least of all God, by allowing your physical unit (the "body" of your Christ-consciousness, the “temple” of your Holy Spirit, the Chariot of Atman, or whatever you want to call it) to be damaged by the violence.

Взрыв эго

Многие люди думают, что духовная жизнь - это дело моральных принципов или результат эволюции, или даже необходимость покориться. Правда в том, что она не является ничем из вышеперечисленного. В действительности духовный образ жизни заключается в подготовке физического тела к тому, чтобы оно могло выдержать мощный прилив высшего сознания.

Mayan 2012 and the not-so-end of the world

The world is changing that's for sure, but all the hullabaloo about dramatic global transformation, cataclysms, and disaster seems heavily misplaced. Some bad planning on the part of engineers has led to some global disasters that's for sure, but no divine smack down is going to occur. Will egg on the face of the "prophets" and their conferences silence the blindfolded once and for all, leaving the airways clear for grounded, rationale, and authentic new energy spirituality, or will those-who-don't know continue to ramble on leading all who follow to slip beneath the waves of a now rapidly sinking old energy ship. Only time will tell.

Aliens, shapeshifters, and lizards, oh my!

These days you have to be careful because, have you noticed(?), a lot of weird shit is going on. The media normalizes it, and most people are too wrapped up in product purchase to notice, but bad things are happening and people are "snapping" all around. Sometimes this ends in mild, if weird, forms of psychosis (tiger blood), and sometimes it ends in horrific abuse and violence. But however it ends it appears to be getting worse. Believe it or not but if you ask me, it is a phenomenon worth considering not only because it represents imminent danger in some cases, but also because we need to understand it if we are going to be anything other than impotent and defenseless in the growing psychological and emotional fallout an increasingly crumbly System.

Rejoice, for death is near

Are you a good person? Are you moral and cool? Are you righteous and strong? Do  you sing a great song? Well, you laugh when someone dies, And you dance when flesh defiled. And you orgasm in the streets, Because their death sees justice mete. And you tell yourself you’re cool, And the enemy, he’s the […]

Pied Piper

Knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door.

Hey Diddle Diddle

This is just a little reminder, herbal good, chemical bad. I mean really. Just because this planet is a hunk of dirt doesn't mean we should treat it that way. Gaia has given everything we need from the food and the water to the entheogen and the medicine. There's nothing to be afraid of and every reason to rejoice.


Dear one, Please stand up. It is time. That you heeded the one brings this rhyme. As he says to all those among you. You are God in the heavens. It’s true. And no matter that maybe you walk, Through the valley of shadow and dark. You’ve never really been far from your home. God’s […]

Snake Oil

Hey you, sitting in that chair. Did you know, so and so has a new thing for you. It’s the latest and greatest and it’s going to liberate you from fear and anger and depression and sadness and everything.

Parable of the Blindfold

Why does the world appear to be so bat-f$%&* crazy? It's because we are all walking around with a blindfold on. Because we are blindfolded, we can't see who we are or where we are going. We've been bumping into each other for thousands of years and we are frustrated, tired, and angry. Instead of bumping each other around, take the blindfold off.

Parable of the Room

Why are you feeling so anxious? Why are some people starting to go crazy? Why is somebody like Trump ascending? The shift is underway! Some people embrace it, some people can't handle it, and some will do anything they can to prevent it.

The Sphere Movie

I'm writing the "Power" archetype for the Halo/Sharp Tarot and I am reminded of the movie The Sphere, a "brilliant" manifestation of the old energy TOWER archetype. The movie tells the story of a "sphere" that gives us the power to manifest whatever we desire! The result? Mutually assured destruction! We're just little children and we can't handle that kind of power without blowing ourselves up, literally. Hogwash I say. We are JOYFUL, MASTERS of creation and we need to awaken, empower, and ascend this planet!

Aleister Crowley is a Mushroom

At the age of fourteen Aleister Crowley, regarded by some to be a fountain of deep, cosmic and spiritual wisdom, brutally butchered a family pet. In his autobiography he admits to experiencing serious childhood abuse, and even intimates sexual molestation. The conclusion? Aleister Crowley was one wounded and messed up child and as such probably not a good source of guidance, spiritual wisdom, and authentic spirituality.

MADD at the Law of Attraction

Today, I wanted to talk about an organization called MADD or Mother’s Against Drunk Driving. For those who don’t know, this is an organization that was formed many years ago in response to the socially irresponsible practice of drunk driving. Basically, this is a group of mothers who, having lost family members to some drunk […]
