Over the years I have written quite a bit. Here are some of my personal favorites.

Great Loop of the Divine

The spiritual process is one of going out and returning, again and again. It can be small, as with prayers, or large as in the evolution of your soul.

Dogma Fails You in the End

There's an old tale of folks confusing the finger for the moon. They believe the sacred texts or the personal narratives of wise souls is the point instead of looking to what these people said about the Sacred. The truth of all sacred experience lies in the person having the experience.

This essay is replicated in Deep Grace. However, it reveals a great deal of my personal philosophy and practice.

The Lord's Prayer

This essay discusses an understanding of the Lord's Prayer I garnered from my grandmother's funeral.
