STAND STILL: REVISITED

Recently, a kind reader of this website came across a quote that I posted in 2014. That quote, “Stand still. The trees ahead and the bush beside you are not lost,” was misattributed to Albert Einstein (the internet is not always a reliable place to source quotes!), so I thank Sara Wright for calling that - Read More -

THE OBSERVER, THE OBSERVED, AND AWARENESS

Recently, on my Instagram page, I have participated in several conversations that address ‘personhood’, the concept of the ‘observer’, and the nature of ‘awareness.’ These are very critical distinctions in Advaita Zen…and the great masters (such as my own teacher, Mooji) provide profound pointings to illustrate the difference. (Taoism also describes awareness, and refers to - Read More -

ONE MUST BE FREE TO FLY

Can you imagine a pilot flying a plane with every piece of the passengers’ luggage tied to their back?? I know, it seems completely absurd…but this is the analogy that came to my mind on this early morning in Mindelo Haha In the same way, can you imagine a bird flying with its nest tied - Read More -

BACK ON MY ISLAND!

I have been back on my island of Santo Antao for almost a month now (!!), but it just feels like I’m starting to catch my breath! What a wonderful whirlwind it’s been as I’ve traveled around the world continually for the past year! I am still processing all of my incredible adventures, and feeling - Read More -

THANK YOU, HOUSTON!

I originally came to Houston with the idea that I would be here just a few weeks ago…but that was almost three months ago! A series of (fortunate) events have kept me here and it’s been a really beautiful experience. I’ve met so many wonderful, beautiful people! And it’s been a delight for me to - Read More -

TRAINS

During my short time in Japan, I feel like I rode half of the country’s trains. The process was made massively more complicated by all of the luggage I was carrying. As I think back on those times, I am happy that I made it! I battled countless escalators, treacherous stairs, and was saved a - Read More -

I was staying in the business district in Osaka, so the energy definitely felt focused and determined. In Kyoto, the old city, the feeling - Read More -

JAPAN

I have to say first that I don’t even love the picture above…haha! But it’s so perfect. While I was standing in Ueno Park in Tokyo, next to the cherry blossom tree (not in bloom, it was autumn) that inspired me to write my first published book (Meditative Questions), I was overcome with so many - Read More -
