The Tides of Life 

tide /tīd/ Learn to pronounce noun noun: tide; plural noun: tides the alternate rising and falling of the sea, usually twice in each lunar day at a particular place, due to the attraction of the moon and sun.
The tides of Life flow endlessly for better or worse - to rise and fall - to live to die. The current hurls the tide. It is the currents function to move, to throw, to float, to create and the tide to lift the sea. Mother Nature has her function and it is always fulfilled. The Sea, void of tide and current is an abyss of stillness and would be a horizon of glass. It sometimes looks that way! That’s when we dive in and lift the weight of gravity off our shoulders! Hopefully swim with some sea turtles. How cool that we oppose a universal law - Gravity - in the ocean!? Gravity doesn’t go anywhere. It still has its hold on the Universe. It just simply doesn’t control us to the degree it does on land! Suhhh hahhh dude. Okay, back on script. Ocean void of tide; remember? K…

Truly letting GoAbandoning yourself to the stream of life - A radical trust-fall into the hand as of the Universe. The Mighty Rhythm that underly all. You know the song right? “He’s got the whole world in His Hands. He’s got the whole world in His Hands.” Cute jingle right? I can hear you scoff! “Yeah Scott, that’s cute for a child. But life ain’t like that. It’s cold, rough and tough; mostly tragic. That childlike faith doesn’t apply to ME.” Okay. May I ask, why not? Why can’t it be simple? Why can’t it be found in truly letting go? Why must we make it complex? Why cant we let it come and let it go? Take a moment. Stop reading. Ask “why”.If you’re honest with yourself you may have answered “I don’t know”. GOOD! That is the first realization upon which every other wall of your spiritual structure will be built. That’s why God/Life/Universe etc Begs us to stop F**%^&$# resisting and LET GO. A word from Mr Joseph Campbell: “We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned in…
Keep the wolves at bay



There comes a time when we must stand and fight. Once more into the Fray. The last fight I will ever know. There is a pivotal point in a man’s life where he must look into the face of his predator and walk straight towards him with the same rapacious nature. Sometimes he must embody that which seeks to destroy him. If you haven’t seen ‘The Grey’ with Liam Neeson; you need to. * Spoilers Alert*  Below is the last scene of the movie. The plot... Liam and a group of others are stranded in the wilderness whilst getting tracked by wolves. The wolves eventually flank Liam into their Den. Realizing this, Liam begins to embody the predator. He nods to the evil he is facing. There is no one coming to save him. No where else to flee. He accepts his fate. He gets pissed! Liam then tapes broken airplane bottles into his fist and a blade taped into his other. He looks deep into the eyes of the Alpha. The shot then cuts to a close up of Neeson’s eyes. The last couple seconds of…

The Hideous Four Horseman

Terror Bewilderment Frustration and Despair

The four pillars of collision . Let us bring these Horseman to life. They gallop upon us with rapacious intent. I open the gate tp these predators. I scream and cry of the misfortune i've brought myself. What have I done to deserve this?! I the bewildered one. Why? I must suspend the question of "why?" and face the fact of these Horsemen. See, asking the question of "why?" will NEVER give me the answer. I must accept the reality of being surrounded by the hideous four horseman. If I desire freedom I must look into the black abyss thier hooded faces carry. Resistance will be fatal.
"All the Heavens, All the Hells and Gods are within you." Joseph Campbell

These Horseman are the Evil within me. It takes courage and grit to be willing to look into the darkest, most repressed parts of our psyche.We become dangerous when we resist and deny the evil within us. The Horsemen are powerful overwhelming forces within us t…

Enter the Cave

“The very cave you are afraid to enter turns out to be the source of what you are looking for. The damn thing in the cave that was so dreaded has become the center.” Joseph Campbell 
So, there’s two words we must consider:  “Source” and the “Center”. So, the question is what do these words mean to you and more importantly what is the benefit of experiencing them? Now, if we know the cave is the answer, and it is, what price am I willing to pay? It truly is the avenue of traveling from the Mind (Fear/Cave) to the Heart (Love/Source). Out of the deepest abyss comes the voice of Salvation. Fear is a shapeshifter. It is cunning. And we give it all the power over us. The Cave is the most frightening thing on Earth; until I enter it. 
The Freedom exists where you stumble. There and only there is your treasure. It is the call of Life for you to face it! How much freedom do you want? How much peace do you wish to have? It’s up to you. Unfortunately, know one can walk through your fear for you. …

How to step back and gain perspective

1. YOU HAVE TO STEP BACK
I must remember that I cannot see my ears. If I can digest this fact then I can agree I don’t always see things as they are. Let “Collision” be your guide. If you face collision with other people, circumstances, feelings, relationship etc (which all points to internal conflict) then I must first step back and quiet the conflict. I will never find solution with a disturbed mind.
2. HAVE SOMEONE WHO CAN SEE YOUR EARS
Seeking council with others is a practice as old as time can reach. If you’re doing life by yourself I feel bad for you. An open book policy with one other man/woman in your life will yield countless benefits. I must be able to lay myself out; insecurities and all before another human in order to gain proper perspective. Absolute vulnerability is a treasure chest that continues to give. It never hold back.
3. LOOK IN THE MIRROR
Have to courage to know you are literally the creator of your life. You are 100% responsible for your collision. You are also 10…

How to make goals now that you’re in recovery

How to make goals now that you’re in recovery

You’re sober. Now what? The fog has lifted; hopefully. A new world has come into view; hopefully. Life begins to open up! It’s as if life has been screaming at you. Pleading, yearning for you to take up your mat and walk again. That’s some exciting shit. Escape from the hell of addiction naturally breeds vitality into the sober man or woman. Now, the job at hand is to become a caretaker of said vitality and use this newfound zeal for life to build a positive, constructive life worth living. With that said, we’re going to talk about goals! And more importantly how to conquer these goals. In my years of recovery, I have seen a pervasive shortcoming in many in recovery: great starter… poor finisher. Let’s get to it.
Foundation. The stones better be in placeWhen I first got sober years ago I remember a gentleman asking me, “Scott, what’s your favorite color?”. I couldn’t answer him. I had been so deep in a self-constructed prison that personal “…
