Hi. This video is about innocence. I meditated on that word, innocence... honestly, because I miss it! I miss seeing it in the world. There's a lot that is showing itself. Presenting itself. And innocence seems to be one of the things in deficiency.
Obviously babies, infants, and kittens and puppies and animals -- all animals -- those are things that evoke (a sense of) innocence. What comes to mind when you think about the word 'innocence'? Perhaps virginity. Maybe a white dress. Maybe, a fair amount of naievte?
The reason I'm bringing it up, is because my understanding of it expanded, and I would like to share that with others. Innocence is defined as having been kept free of injury.
So, in this sense, innocence isn't necessarily a moral matter. It isn't about, necessarily, one's choices or behavior, or the way they dress, or they way they carry themselves... or how promiscuous they are, or are not.
It actually has to do with whether or not you have experienced harm and injury. And the interesting thing about that is... my understanding was always that it would be a reflection of how a person chooses to conduct themselves.
But it actually is something far more vulnerable than that. It almost even has to do with luck and fortune -- (I meant to say 'chance.') -- as to whether or not you were a victim of crime. Whether or not you have experienced abuse, or abandonment, or poverty. These are things that are injuries. Whether you've experienced poor health -- poor physical health, or poor mental health.
These are injuries. This is harm. And there is a state of being before one experiences great injury and harm. And there's a difference of being after injury or harm have been experienced.
So after one has received an injury or harm, that's when wounded behavior shows up.
It's hurting people, that hurt other people. When you have an (entire) WORLD that has been injured, harmed and traumatized -- that has lost its innocence, and acts from woundedness -- what happens?
I wanted to bring this loop to light.
It's something that's really subtle, but I hope by teasing it out (as I tried to), that you would be more compassionate with yourself. That you'd be more patient, kind, and gentle with yourself first... SO THAT that can later be reflected in your treatment of others. But if you don't give that tenderness to yourself first, it won't be available for others.
One way to regain and restore our innocence -- to be resilient after injury, harm and trauma -- is to acknowledge the fact that it is so. (Acknowledge the revelations, rather than deny them.)
The awakenings are rude. These awakenings are painful, and disorienting, and hard! To wake up to the fact that, you name it, X, Y, and Z was not at all what you were led to believe. The betrayal that humanity has undergone, and is undergoing... it's going to take time for us to even get vocabulary for the grief, and the fall-out that comes.

Background Song: "Calm Oasis"
Background Sounds: Windchimes, birdsong and breezes are part of my soundscape. When you hear them, please just allow it to be a gentle "Hello" from the natural world.
This post presumes you are aware -- or at least sense a little bit -- that "things" in the world appear to be heading in the wrong direction. #understatement! ☠️ 🤖
By "wrong," I mean unnatural, unhealthy and unacceptable to the flourishing of genetically-intact life. As a biophiliac, I thankfully have an activated and automatic response of self-protection against predatory things. Vigilance is APPROPRIATE given the current, visible state of appalling affairs.
This morning, I was drenched in the refreshing knowledge that our destinies are defined by the decisions we make about the details of our day, each day.
That means your future is incrementally, actually, ultimately UP TO YOU!
If you are a very needy and dependent person, that may stress you out.
If you are more of an actualized and self-governed person, that will confirm what you already deeply know. (You're not alone! Hello, there. 👋🏾 )
The video is meant to energize possibility within you!! It had me stompin' and punchin' all over my kitchen. Before you watch it -- can you believe it was released more than two decades ago, in 2001?! -- it is shared with these interpretations:
To receive the fullness of this encouragement, please hear the song with the filter of those two points. Here are the (nearly prophetic) lyrics.:
"SURVIVOR" by Destiny's Child
Now that you're outta my life, I'm so much better
You thought that I'd be weak without ya, but I'm stronger
You thought that I'd be broke without ya, but I'm richer
You thought that I'd be sad without ya, I love harder
You thought I wouldn't grow without ya, now I'm wiser!
You thought that I'd be helpless without ya but I'm smarter
You thought that I'd be stressed without ya, but I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without ya, sold nine million
I'm a survivor (what), I'm not gon' give up (what)
I'm not gon' stop (what), I'm gon' work harder (what)
I'm a survivor (what), I'm gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin' (what)
I'm a survivor (what), I'm not gon' give up (what)
I'm not gon' stop (what), I'm gon' work harder (what)
I'm a survivor (what), I'm gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin' (what)
Thought I couldn't breathe without you, I'm inhaling
You thought I couldn't see without you, perfect vision
You thought I couldn't last without you, but I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without you, but I'm livin'
Thought that I would fail without you, but I'm on top
Thought it would be over by now, but it won't stop
Thought that I would self-destruct, but I'm still here
Even in my years to come, I'm still gon' be here
Wishin' you the best, pray that you are blessed
Much success, no stress, and lots of happiness
(I'm better than that) I'm not gon' blast you on the radio
(I'm better than that) I'm not gon' lie on you and your family, oh
(I'm better than that) I'm not gon' hate on you in the magazines
(I'm better than that) I'm not gon' compromise my Christianity
(I'm better than that) you know I'm not gon' dis you on the internet
'Cause my momma taught me better than that!
Oh (Oh), oh (Oh), oh (Oh), oh (Oh), Oh-oh (Oh-oh)...
After all of the darkness and sadness, soon comes happiness
If I surround myself with positive things, I'll gain prosperity
If you watch the "news," you are ingesting elaborated, hyper-repeated nightmares. Can't you feel the difference between what you are motivated to do with an internal mantra like, "I'm a survivor!" Versus one that says ridiculous, self-cancelling things like "I must accept poison and mutilation, in order to live." Makes zero sense.
STARVE UNWANTED NIGHTMARES. FEED DESIRED DREAMS.
The lyrics I put in purple are to highlight ironic ways the pain of the past two years has helped to squeeze out our essence. If there are any parts of your essence that you see, and dislike/disown, THAT is the work that could productively benefit from your rapt attention and focus.
You become what you endlessly gaze at, so I hope you are choosing to stare at beautiful things. And if they seem in short supply, create beautiful things. Within you. And then around you. 💜
A BIOPHILIC, NON-PARTISAN STANCE:
It's of lesser importance, but still seems worth mentioning, that I align with NEITHER political party, as BOTH cause great harm and suffering to ALL natural life on beautiful, bountiful earth.
Labels limit, and that's why the more free you become, the fewer labels you wish to wear. But they serve a signifying purpose, so I do not at all mind being identified as a BIOPHILIAC.
At the moment, the word seems to be mostly used among designers who regard it more as a 'style' or 'trend'. I don't detect awe, transcendence or profundity of being in most content about biophilia, but I celebrate its spark at any mention. If you also have deep thoughts and strong feelings about unmolested life, but haven't really found satisfying ways to talk about it... please consider the work of E.O. Wilson, who conceived "biophilia hypothesis."
The word came alive in me during a certification in permaculture ages ago. My operative definition of biophilia has become: I am oriented toward genetically-intact NATURAL LIFE and NATURAL LIFE SYSTEMS, which includes unmolested air, light, water, soil, seeds, herbs, plants, flowers, trees, fruits, vegetables, insects, animals, and humans. 👈🏾 I feel compelled to AROUSE PROTECTIVE CARE for the sanctity of these things.
All natural life forms have undergone tampering and hindering that is abominable. Natural life forms have been under precise, organized, patient attack. Biophilia makes it instantly obvious, because the love of something makes you more keen of its threats.
QUICK BOTTOMLINE FOR SHORT ATTENTION SPANS: Biophilia is a harmless, dynamic and generative worldview that is simply TOO LIVELY to be ensnared in counter-productive poli-tricks. Biophilia advances natural wholeness and beauty, and intrinsically opposes engineered fragmentation and mutilation.
I didn’t know what “rubicon” (from the background song's title) meant, so I looked it up. According to Merriam-Webster, it’s “a bounding or limiting line especially one that when crossed commits a person irrevocably. It comes from the name of the river Julius Caesar crossed with his army, thereby starting a civil war in Rome.”
Sample use I just thought up: —> Transhumanism is a rubicon.
Something ironic I've been living into, is that
it is *fun* to take your life seriously.
To be protective of it. To know its value,
and to cherish it. 💗
Background Songs From Epidemic Sound:
* Your Natural Habitat
I live in a (metaphorical) cave, and like it very much.
This is a long-time truth. Pre-pre covid. And especially now.
For me, contemplative living doesn't need eyeballs, and public opinion/approval.
Being monastic in a hyper-material, chronically-connected world has always been troublesome to try and explain... defend... justify. So I stopped doing all that, and just lived. It's been great.
But now, 10-weeks away from a speaking engagement at a very meaningful venue... I want to offer attendees at least a lil' taste of who I am, and what I bring. So, here ya go.
Thanks for listening to the audio below. See you soon. 💐

Published June 2021, calling out dishonorable mainstream journalists, who have facilitated malevolent confusion and delusion among masses of trusting people.
Also responsible for this hot mess, are our own socially-enslaved selves, so groomed and primed for "Likes" and approval. My gawd. Pavlov much?
Go 'head, and let some light of truth pour on in:
What do you think about this Cinderella reframe? 👣
As long as I have been online, I have been normalizing mindfulness, and trying to remove any and all unusualness, religiosity, sense of difficulty, or inaccessibility.
MINDFULNESS is a state of being, and way of being, that is owned by no one, while also being owned by everyone.
It's deeply bothersome that such a PRIMAL and ORIGINAL way of being, is mostly perceived as Buddhist, Eastern or some other brand, ritual or tradition.
It's deeply bothersome that an INNER art, seems to require so much outer instruction. Certification. Regulation.
But does it really??
People hold a lot unnecessary confusion about meditating "right," or "not being good at" mindfulness. I think this comes from the long-time veneration of OUTER "authorities" -- both dead and alive. Over time, it amasses into lots of learned helplessness and self-doubt about one's own inner landscape.
I do reject the idea that you need highly precise instruction on how to know your own mind. On how to become the master of your own internal state.
By describing meditative states that arise from mundane activity, I am demonstrating mindfulness and internal authority. And you are encouraged and empowered to do similarly, right away.
There is plenty of "Follow my lead" guidance out there for those who want to follow. But not nearly as much material that purely LEADS YOU TO YOU, now.
That is what I've been called to do, have been doing all along, and will continue to do.
"As above, so below" means "What is done in your car or kitchen, HAS MIRRORED IMPACT BEYOND YOUR CAR OR KITCHEN."
So, this is how my multi-dimensional mopping unfolded...
If you haven't yet listened to "Mopping Can Lead To Elaborate Gratitude," please do. It's the foundation for this experience.
Also, keep in mind that metaphor is the language of in-between, liminal spaces. Fluency in metaphor frees your brain.
Okay, so I traded the incense stick, for a mop.
In the beginning, the mop was an eraser.
Later, it became a pen. You'll see :-)
But first, I prepared the bucket with hot water, bleach, and palo santo essential oil.
The floor was my heart.
I washed it with extreme care and thoughtfulness.
I erased any scripts that were dead or untrue.
I wrote new scripts that are alive, beautiful and true.
I deepened my commitment to my path, and became even more inhospitable to distraction or procrastination. This is a time of war, and I am wide awake and watchful.
One surprising thing that happened is... every previous time I can remember fusing mopping with fruitful mind-games, I've always erased Cinderella programming, and rewritten princess programming. My rationale and understanding at the time was that I was raising my sense of worth, and up-leveling my consciousness somehow...
But this time, the BEAUTY OF CINDER is what was revealed to me. I had overlooked and under-appreciated ASH... which is what cinder is...
Cinder, the earth-stuff that covered the cheeks of Cinderella, was the signature of her hard labor... scrubbing inside chimney walls.
As an independent creative, I often feel like Cinderella... workin' hard, missin' parties.
But during this mopping, I was reminded of how happy I've been in flip-flops the past 5.5 years. Glass slippers sound very uncomfortable! And tanks and sundresses are what I live in. I don't want to go where gowns are required, or any formality, for that matter!
I am a different kind of princess, who wants soil and sun, over synthetics or a simulated smart city.
Make peace with cinder.

Most people are not taught how to masturbate.
Somehow, we just naturally know.
Meditation is just as easy + natural to get a hang of.
LET IT BE.
The 8 words are:
This episode unpacks what those words mean to me, and how they may strengthen you.
Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation, and it is wildly active right now. (The term was inspired by this 1938 play.)
Controlled language is the most despicable form of oppression... ironically veiled as virtuous. <--- WHICH IT AIN'T!
Please don't let partisanship -- of any kind -- dull your senses. The solutions we seek are bigger, and beyond, politics.
Politics are DESIGNED to split us, and keep us split. And reinforce that split so effectively, that we eventually harbor ill will toward "them."
The other side.
Deeply-seeded contempt is constantly watered and nurtured in tribal silos with no variance. United in rage. Both utterly convinced of the rightness of their stance.
It's like two breasts, or two testicles COMPETING WITH EACH OTHER.
We all share the same body-earth, and we are all vulnerable to an immoral, technocratic overreach happening now.
Vultures are circling, and they fly with both wings.
I am curious.
I am safe.
I am open.
I am learning.
I am relaxed.
I am enjoying this.
I am healthy.
I am precise.
I am complete.
I am real.
I am generous.
I am brave.
I am plenty.
I am wise.
I am love.
I am new.
I am ready.
I am sovereign.
I am free.

I put my groceries on the ground, sat on a huge rock,
and shared my own saline with the sea.
Then, I recorded these two minutes for you... 🌊💙
In this episode, I share my opinion about race relations, and bridging them.
Humanity's trained belief in government as an agency of goodness, is really delaying suffering.
Hopefully we remember and recognize the goodness to be found IN EACH OTHER, so we can unite and resist planetary enslavement!
We must think and talk ABOVE politics, because the political realm is one sticky glue trap of distraction, entertainment and misdirected Life Force.
No one wins in that glue.
And the more you wiggle around on it, the more STUCK you become.
Reject all roles and narratives that ask you to divide against your own self, and to depart from your own good sense and wisdom.
Please consider the DEFINITION of the word "conspiracy" = "a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful."
Isn't it odd that there is more public shame for being associated with the harmless word 'conspiracy,' than there is for being associated with child molestation?? ?
The harmful plan is blatantly PUBLIC, but dismissed as "baseless" and "unfounded." The harmful plan lives beneath ridicule, and the economic threat of cancellation.
Also, no one wants to see that a long-held trust in the benevolence of government or mainstream news, has been a sham. No one wants to see that the infrastructure of modern society was BUILT BACKWARDS. (Constant inversions and reversals, where up is down, and good is bad.)
It should be more readily acknowledged that getting red-pilled and black-pilled is VERY HARD WORK.
But the longer reality is denied and avoided, the longer the virus of betrayal will continue.
Happy ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of orchestrated madness.

* SPECIAL COMPANION READING *
Written 10-years ago, but still feels like last week!
"My iPhone brought me closer to the Sun."
"Where The River Runs," by Ketsa
It's great that you've already been working from home online for 5+ years,
because you'll be "mandated" to stay home quite a bit more this year,
due to an unfounded global lockdown that is called a "pandemic,"
but is really a technocratic takeover.
Reality will split in two:
(1) Those who see the world slipping
into transhumanistic enslavement.
(2) And those who don't.
It will break your heart daily.
You will lose friends, clients, and contracts,
because you dare feel verbally entitled to breathe.
There is a social and professional price to pay for opposing
bacterial pneumonia, tyranny, genocide, censorship,
surveillance, and medical molestation. And you will pay it.
You and the entire world will be engaged in deep psychological
warfare... but most will not even be aware of the actual war.
The majority will appear to dismiss, deny, and avoid "the truth,"
because the truth is disgusting, hard-to-believe,
and sounds bat-shit (pardon the pun) crazy when spoken.
It's a burden to know these things.
And empathically feel these things.
Dark, sinister, and inevitable without opposition.
It's a very austere year, that will strip and distill you.
Grieve. Dry heave. Cry and cleanse. Cry and cleanse.
2020 is a shameless, twerking exhibitionist
that holds the whole world captive with a vice grip
of satanic wealth and luciferan influence.
MEDIA IS ITS MOUTH,
and its hypnosis makes logic lewd,
and reason rancid. In other words,
2020 is backward backward.
An organization that isn't even federal, but private,
declared a public health emergency...
...that was based on a virus that was never isolated, and continues
to be built on cases derived from a test that isn't even really a test.
While a man who isn't even a doctor, will push a vaccine
that isn't even really a vaccine, (but a sterilizing gene modifier!)
Doctors, nurses, journalists, governors, mayors, and law enforcers
will betray themselves, their professions, and the rest of humanity
by mindlessly parroting and executing death-scripts written for them.
Soulless muppets with mics, will relentlessly implant and embed
sights and sounds of corona all over every inhabited surface of this planet.
For nearly a year, you will be puppy-trained + indoctrinated:
😷 to wash yourself (because you are filthy!)
😷 to mask yourself (because you are contagious,
and/or vulnerable to contagions!)
😷 to silence yourself (because you are rude and hateful!)
😷 to doubt yourself (because you are unresearched and unscientific!)
😷 to hate yourself (because you are non-essential!)
😷 to poison yourself (because you are unsafe as a natural human!)
😷 to quarantine yourself (because everyone is a threat to everyone else!)
😷 to behave yourself (because you don't want to be
registered as a public health dissident!)
In 2020, the offenses hurled against humanity will be so obscene,
YOU WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO RISE.
That is the revealed gift behind all the unacceptable threats
that will be shoved in your face:
They will PUSH + DRIVE you beyond your small self,
beyond your sense of helplessness and alienation.
And just like the caterpillar 🐛 thinks that its life is over...
you, too, will discover and accept another way to organize yourcellf
and your life, so that it can be lived with dignity and divinity.
It's not the end of time, but the fullness of time!
Heaven on earth isn't experienced more often by more people,
because of the mass-conditioning to believe distortions, and limitations.
Many good people were socialized to give more credence
to soulless muppets, than to their own Wise + Brave Heart.
But that can be corrected in any, decisive moment.
We can each enter 2021 with the confidence that
the greater the challenge appears outside of us,
the greater the capacity appears inside of us.
What was intended for humanity's demise can,
instead, incite our overall and overdue greatness. 🖤
Christmas has always been a tough day
for those who live with depression.
That was the ongoing case even before
the orchestrated hijacking of life, better known as 2020.
I can't imagine what the death-math
of this first Covid Christmas will be.
Not that it will be reported with any accuracy, or decency...
...two virtues that might be hiding out with merry.
The bells I hear ringing are the alarms of truth and liberty,
but most of the world seems to confuse them with a reindeer sleigh.
Chimney-like isolation is the gift that comes
with seeing what the virus really is, and knowing there is no mask
that can protect from the hazardous material strewn about
non-stop since March. No amount of garland or tinsel or candy canes
can redeem the news-sewage that's poisoned most minds.
I will not gaslight you with false cheer.
If you feel tired or sad or maybe even worse than that,
it actually means you are very much alive and in-tact!
It means that your awareness is functioning
exactly as it should, alerting you of falsity.
There is empowerment in this grinchy post, and it is this:
If you can detect it,
you can do something about it.
