While most of this site is addressed to the newly awakened, this section is for those that are still sleeping. My best advice: don’t take it too seriously!

Happy Pizza & the Meaning of Everything

Lifting the veil and coming back empty handed. There used to be an infamous pizza joint in Phnom Penh called Happy Pizza. Who knows how the Gemini Husband knew of it, but he and my then thirteen year old daughter walked there one evening to pick up a pizza. Among the many pizzas on offer were …

Surviving Child Abuse

Does being abused as a child damage your soul? Is it possible that the current received wisdom of psychology is incorrect? I was adopted as a baby and raised by two very abusive parents.

Before Enlightenment, The Invitation
