No Time for Fear, It’s Wasteful

The Dreamer, mixed media, 24x48 inches

How we spend our time is what we are. Time after time we prove to ourselves: What we become is what we hold in our consciousness. If you believe things are going wrong, they will. If you believe that things happen for a reason, even if you don’t like them or ever know what reason,…

A Nervy Time for All of Us, Indeed!

Big Strong Angel, mixed media, 17x22x5 inches

We’re all feeling the crunch of being challenged, aren’t we? If it’s not the pandemic’s anti-versus-got’em vaxers, the political unrest, economic hardship, it’s the most current and war-scary headlines of the Ukraine’s invasion by Russia in our newsfeeds. Or it’s … well, you name it. Being human means dealing with stress. Some of us need…

To Why? or Not to Why

Not 'Why me?' but 'Why Not?' image by teZa

Recently I’ve come to the realization that being alive means something different to each one of us. Some people don’t even think about “what life means,” in fact.

We Are a Universal Blended Family of Humankind

Heal Our World by teZa Lord

We’ve all had to adapt and change during the past year and a half, due to Covid, the great tormentor. But Covid is also a great spiritual teacher! That’s right. You heard me correctly. Without Covid, a lot of us would never have gotten the lesson so directly that how we accept hardships is entirely…

What Suffering Teaches Us

the dance of meeting needs

There’s an old saying. Some say it’s from Zen Buddhism, others say it’s universally a spiritual teaching that applies to anyone wishing to become happier. “Only a cracked pot allows the light in.” What does this mean? To me, it’s clearly about accepting our impefections. In Japan that’s called wabisabi. This is a philosophy that…

Choosing to Accept Change

Choices by teZa Lord

Many people have a hard time accepting what is. For some, this is a struggle; for others, because they’ve been practicing it for a while, fears and sadness, disappointments and projections simply don’t stick like they do to others who don’t know being content about “all things” is a matter of practice.
