I have been interested in the psychology of “letting go” most of my life…I was introduced to it when as a young man I became familiar with Oriental Philosophy…and found it one of the most valuable skills I’ve learned in life…it is primarily concerned with the letting go of many of the unnecessary goals and expectations from our socially conditioned self … we are often unaware because of habit that we really don’t need many of the things and activities in which we spend much of our time…letting go of these habits can be a very liberating experience… Continue Reading….


“The greatness of a man’s power is the measure of his surrender.” ~William Booth

Our subconscious is continually receiving and sending messages…perhaps the most important message coming from the social environment is to achieve a successful role and identity…although it contains misleading ideas and beliefs our subconscious accepts the message without question… unfortunately it then takes on the meaning and purpose of our life, creating a preoccupation with our self image control, although it is inconsistent with life’s spontaneous rhythms…all of which result in a feeling of alienation and being lost in a confusing world….

Joseph Campbell was perhaps the world’s foremost scholar of Mythology. No one was more familiar with the deeper meaning of intuitive “flow” …he studied many cultures with different myths pointing toward the underlying experience of intrinsic bliss.

“It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.” ~ Joseph Campbell

The spiritual poet Rumi wrote, “Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”… But what did he mean when he referred to ruin?… Was it our socially conditioned self in a state of ruin?…It is commonly known we need to experience a deep despair about our self as a turning point in the transformation of personality… Continue Reading

It is difficult for us to perceive our life as a rhythmic dance….however our conscious mind is very limited and unable to see all the vast connections between us and the universe… let alone its awesome movement in one flowing dance….but if we look at some of our daily experiences, we get a hint of what lies deeply within….

“A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.” –Lao-Tzu

You’d be hard pressed to find a creative person who isn’t intensely aware of their aloneness, and yet, like anyone else, they live in a relationship. However, instead of a social relationship, they rely upon a deep abiding relationship with an intuitive awareness of their special gifts. There’s a sense of partnership with their subconscious intuition and imagination to do creative work… Continue Reading


“Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.” — Rumi

Solitude is frequently described as a state of loneliness without meaning…however those who are deeply aware of their intuitive feelings tend to experience being alone with a sense of relatedness and harmony both within and outwardly…solitude then becomes an enjoyable activity…but those who identify with their socially conditioned self with its rational thinking tend to separate everything both within and outwardly….they will likely experience being alone with a feeling of separateness and loneliness… Continue Reading



“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”. ~Steve Jobs…Continue Reading


“If you realize what the real problem is — losing yourself — you realize that this itself is the ultimate trial. When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves , we undergo transformation of consciousness.” Joseph Campbell”

Most of us have experienced chronic frustration and pain both psychologically or physically at different periods of our life…and felt trapped without any solution or answer…our rational mind searches for ways to overcome the pain and not only fails in its efforts but also intensifies our preoccupation with the pain…it becomes a vicious circle as Carl Jung has said “resist persist”…Continue Reading



We often use the term “gut feelings “, however these feelings don’t originate in the stomach but instead begins in the subconscious mind which sends its messages through the vagus nerve to the stomach or gut….interestingly, half of all our nerve cells are located within the gut and an important factor in our intuitive feelings…the “gut feelings” than travel throughout the nervous system and experienced by the whole body…Our conscious mind’s role is to interpret and translate the meaning of these feelings…the process makes a complete cycle and involves the total organism…Continue reading…

It is out of the boredom and emptiness of our conscious awareness that new ideas and peace of mind can be born… unfortunately we often experience boredom as laziness and the failure of an inactive self…Continue reading…


“Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing” ~Lao Tzu

Doing nothing is paradoxically very difficult to do…our conscious awareness continuously focuses on our self preoccupations…as a result it really doesn’t offer us many opportunities to relax and do nothing… it is only during periods of relaxation and doing nothing that our subconscious intuition is able to express its creative qualities …our subconscious mind, like our heart, is active all the time even when we are sleeping or consciously doing nothing…Continue reading

“Some time ago I was asked why I didn’t go to church. I said I did go to church every day I went out riding my motorcycle.

For many motorcyclists, the ceremony of going for a ride provides the same spiritual sustenance other people find through the ceremonies conducted by organized reli­gions. The similarities are striking. We wear our leathers and riding suits as vest­ments, we have a prescribed ritual for starting our engines, and our favorite roads compose our liturgy… Read More
