  • I believe it’s time. Time for the youth of the world to speak up. We see so many interracial and diverse couples. Friends of all nations coming together in solidarity because they simply don’t care about race or religion for that matter. Outstanding…
  • I created this as a recovery artwork. The Noble Eightfold Path on the outside. The Refuge in the middle. K for Karma. And on the edge of the triangle is the addiction cycle. Thought I’d share.
  • Fantastic book about the addicted mind. “The Biology of Desire” by Marc Lewis. A neuroscientist who has studied addictions and the brain. He maintains that addiction is NOT a disease, rather a “wiring” problem in the brain. It is possible to be …
  • Sorry for the typos above. Wow! Really need to start proofreading.
  • Its quite common for “normies” (as they are called in AA) to not understand how the addictive mind works. There are three types of drinkers. Type 1 can take ot leave it. A bottle of wind can be opened and left undrank for weeks. Sometimes never touc…
  • THERE IS A SACREDNESS IN TEARS. THEY ARE NOT THE MARK OF WEAKNESS, BUT OF POWER. THEY SPEAK MORE ELOQUENTLY THAN TEN THOUSAND TONGUES. THEY ARE MESSENGERS OF OVERWHELMING GRIEF, AND UNSPEAKABLE LOVE. * Rumi

  • I found “Mastering the Core Teaching of The Buddha” by Daniel Ingram, a pretty powerful and educational read. It kinda kicks starts the deeper complexity of Buddha’s teaching. Written frankly and to the point. It even has “mind maps” that map out va…
  • ...update... Well. Tonight. Of all nights I received a call from one son and after 30-40 minutes my OTHER son gets on the phone. I was up front. Honest and said the shit has to stop. If they want to shoot a bent arrow then I'm not interested. If it'…
  • Dhammapada 78 - The Wise * Do not associate with evil companions; do not seek the fellowship of the vile. Associate with the good friends; seek the fellowship of noble men. You're not wrong. Just like some things I struggle with. Say hi if …
  • By the way. For added context, this has been going on since 1999!!!
  • This process has been dragging me through three $$$ court battles. Lawyers. And her putting the kids in the middle. Each time I plead that all the facts were incorrect and that she was bending the truth. Eventually after my oldest son emancipated fr…
  • Stay focused and dedicated.
