PSYCHE: Your Inner GPS Navigation System.

Psyche: Your Inner GPS Navigation System


Donna May


I was walking this morning and came across the above sign. The road goes up and over a series of mountainous wilderness areas, ascending and descending through some of the most gorgeous terrain anywhere in the world. And it’s wild, truly “a…

About Time

I've been reading about soul and time.

One of the wisest descriptions I've come across is from poet John O'Donohue.

In this extract interviewer Krista Tippett asks him about time:

JOD: 'I think that one of the huge difficulties in modern life is the way time has become the enemy.

KT: Time is a bully. We're captive to it.

JOD: Totally, and I'd say seven out of every 10 people who turn up in a doctor's surgery are suffering from something…

When People Are Running Your Life...!

Fast and furious come the demands. They want time, attention, energy. People feel empty and turn your way. "They'll steal your soul if you let them....don't you let them," goes the contemporary folk song.

Problem is that there is often a psychic hole in us that permits people to make their incessant demands without us setting limits. We need to be needed. It's a dark abyss of a most nontransfomational sort to require the neediness of others in order to manufacture an ostensible…

In the garden

In the garden

I bury the remains of the mothers  -

The fish whose bones line the roots of my tomatoes-

That is how I pray


I kneel in the soft earth and look

Through the lattice of dark green leaves

There, yellow as buttercups in the sun,

Incipient fruit

Await the annunciation

He lusts for your soul you so fearfully proffer

Because you are torn between passion and honor.

Destiny, Thou hallowed bride,

He has plunged his poisonous hand into you…

Keeping Your Head Clear!

When head space gets clogged, a psychological complex has kicked in. it could be that we're unconsciously trying to please a mother or father figure. There's a chance that power needs or an old habit of tying into depressive attitudes has us by the throat and won't let go. Whatever is causing it, a complex clogs up head space and can pull us down into the dumps.

The good thing is that the dumps carry the seeds of potential change. It's like a built-in compost heap for the psyche. When…

Barry’s Blog # 96: Deconstructing a Gatekeeper, Parts 1-3 of 3

Part One

In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. – George Orwell

I published an earlier version of this essay in 2014. Now, as we find ourselves inundated with lies, “alternative facts”, biased “fact checkers” and algorithm-manipulated news reports calculated to confirm our biases – all of which make some of us want to fall back upon familiar,…
