Sharing is the Rule

Your “word” is your way of being in the world? Yes. Every time you tell yourself you know what you saw, that you know what happened, or how you feel and what you want, you are making a promise to… Seek More

First Promise to Ourselves

You don’t have one word, you have two. Most people wind up “speaking with a forked tongue.” Animals detect this, very young children detect this, autistic individuals detect this. Yes, when I was young I found so many adults to… Seek More

A Word for all Times

Why do we swear we will keep our word? Why do we ever promise people anything? Because we believe we are special to them perhaps? To perpetuate sameness? Make ourselves look special? And yet that in the end leads to… Seek More
