Take 3

This post is formatted to reflect an original journal entry. 4/19/19 Figured it out. What I was working toward on my return flight—the idea that was brewing but on which I hadn’t gained clarity sufficient to write. Returned to Rogers and Maslow. Re-reading them in conjunction with Huxley is illuminating. Also ordered Rogers’s Client-Centered Therapy. [...]

Strata

This post is formatted to reflect an original journal entry. 3/23/19 I am engaged in the process of creating my own symbols. I’ve recognized it, albeit dimly, for awhile now, but the magnitude of such a revelation didn’t hit me squarely until just this morning. This goes beyond the creation of a personal myth. White [...]

Returned briefly to Maslow’s Religion, Values, and Peak Experiences, always a gloriously eye-opening read for me. Some brief insights worth sharing.  I feel as if a haze has been removed from [...]

Habits and how they either aid or hinder us in the pursuit of becoming. A thought: you don’t have to try nearly as hard when your habits are good. What [...]

Red Hen

I dash through the hallways of a professional building, as if being chased through the tunnels of a maze. Janitors, security guards, accountants, IT specialists, and one surgeon dressed in a blue gown. None of them seems to notice me nor care much about my comings and goings. I arrive at a chapel with a [...]
