Reflections from a Red Moon

I have always loved the night sky…and as the poet says, “the sky is a jeweled tent around us, and we were wonderfully in love.”   I have a son who loves the stars in that wonderful way that speaks to the eloquent science of the universe. He can, and often does startle you with […]


I once asked a white Anglo Saxon heterosexual tenured male colleague what it was like to walk into any room, bar, job, land mass, house of ill repute, train, plane, etc. without ever having to think about, concern himself with, notice difference in any meaningful way — that race, gender, class sexuality was never a […]

Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”  ― William Faulkner

There is one all-pervading presence of potentiality in the multiverses. From it, all life has sprung.

As emanations of the divine spark of life, we have unlimited potential.  Whether (as science suggests) we have “junk DNA,” or use only a small percentage of our brain, humans have the capacity to become so much more than we think we are capable of becoming, more than what our life here on earth shows we are actually making use of.

It is so exciting to realize that there is so much more possible than what we can comprehend with our senses. There are worlds upon worlds spinning through the Creation and we sit atop just one of them. I marvel at the diversity of life that is everywhere here. Plant, animal, mineral forms are unending here. Over time we have evolved from more primitive beings to the arguably superior forms we believe ourselves to be, especially, in terms of consciousness. We evolve. We must. For as life goes on and spins, spirals, and changes itself into constant new and myriad forms, so must we.

“You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.”
― Rumi

Yet, what is physical is not so important. We are, above all, spiritual beings inhabiting fleshly earth suits. We gather our cosmic energies together and stuff them into these little bodies that we may experience the delights that Earth has to offer.  But what began as an exploratory adventure eons ago, has become the primary focus of our perspectives, and exemplifies the limitations of a myopic vision. We only accept as real that which we can see, hear, touch, taste, and smell. We look all around and believe that this world is everything, that this life that we know is all that is real. We think that our lives are finite, and are all that should matter. We can hardly imagine that when we drop these body suits, our consciousness will once again expand and merge with the original spark from which we emanated. But–if we are created in the image and likeness of that magnificent Potentiality, surely then, there are reservoirs of untapped possibility within us waiting to be expressed?

So, while we are here what can we do? We can make the most of our lives by exploring that unexpressed potential that is dormant.  We can expand our minds and our imaginations, and test the playing field of potential which is within us. We can stop listening to the “out there” voices that mimic the status quo. We can close our ears to the naysayers and the fraidy cats. We can shut off the electronic stimulation and get quiet. We can question the voices that would make us feel small for asking questions of the way it’s always been. This is a start.

From there, let us begin to open to the vast potential within that begs to be unleashed.
