The New Way

As economic and ecological collapse looms in our world, we humans must embrace a necessary transition.  We must evolve from outer to inner definition.  This is the new way.  This alone will save our planet home from desolation and our species from extinction.  To be part of this timely change, here are some suggestions.


Do inner work                         Grieve and heal childhood trauma; free yourself to be real.

Stay single                               Stay with yourself, find yourself, love yourself—find your singular purpose as defined from within and contribute this needed gift to the world.

Live vertical                            Grow up and out of trauma-based, conventional concerns and into universal purpose.

Manifest gifts                          Develop and give your personal gifts to serve the world.

Live your dream                      Life planted aspirations in you—embody them.  They will fulfill you and help many.

Evolve                                     Align with nature and truth in order to evolve consciousness to the next level.

Be humble                               Humble means teachable.  Life rewards and uses the humble, teaching them the path of fulfilled living which will serve our evolving planet

Be you                                     You are an original and here for a purpose that only you can fulfill.  Do this by being you and meet your deepest responsibility as a human being.

Trust                                        Truth and nature are stronger than human error and are your allies.  Truth and nature protect all life including yours.  Fear not—truth and nature are stronger.



Don’t get caught in drama      The distractions of conventional living are fraught with distracting conflicts that can divert you from your primary purpose of growing up and upward into universal purpose.

Don’t have children               The world is crowded and crazy.  Having children when you are unhealed abuses them, thwarts your growth and puts more stress and pollution into the world. Give birth to your true self instead.

Don’t get married                   The marriage you need is within.  Once freed of trauma, your instincts (your animal nature) can wed your ideals (your higher nature) and you become an integrated person—and a person of integrity.

Don’t get trapped                   Don’t get trapped in the limits of your family and culture.  Remember, you belong to truth and the grandeur of nature.

Don’t listen to noise                Don’t listen to the frightening noise of the world—listen to the quiet, reassuring voice of truth at your core.  All is well and so are you.

A Must Do

Live right—fear nothing.

These ideas are more fully explored in my book Field Guide to a New Species—a new sustainable way to be human.

A New Time Begins Today

Today is the first day of a New Year—and a new time in our lives.  There is excitement in the air, for the gift we receive today is time—a new day, a new year, another chance to heal and grow.  Time is the medium of evolution allowing the unfolding of life’s purpose.  The days of this New Year, used consciously, will awaken our purpose and lead to our enlightenment.

Time used constructively heals the wounds that would crush our life’s expression.

Time used mindfully carries us like a mighty river to our depth.

Time used consciously transforms life experience into wisdom and illumination.

No wonder we’re excited at the prospects of this New Year and its gift of time.

It takes time to heal.  We must proceed slowly, day by day, unraveling the damage that confounds the full expression of our identity.  Our wounds run deep for they were inflicted practically from our first breath.  The painstaking work of loving all the lost parts of ourselves back to life, vitality, and full expression must be done slowly, day by day, throughout this bright New Year.

Today we begin the journey back to our self and to truth.  We take the hand of our frightened inner child who was shamed into believing it was of little value and hold this child in our care and protection.  We comfort this terrified child, buried within us, who hid for safe-keeping until this very moment.  We open the prison gates with our love and breathe life into this forgotten existence.

Today we begin a sacred journey through a New Year.  Slowly, through the days of this new time, we develop our dishonored child into the fulfilled adult that life intended.

This bright New Year with gratitude, humility and love, I begin a new time in my life.
