Law

People thought we were conspiracy nuts when we said these things.

secretsoftheserpent

People do not understand law.  I am all for having law and order.  This defund the police movement the past couple years is all from ignorance.  What we really need is people to understand law.  If you understand how the law actually works it can help you and protect you. When I first took a law class, this was in bold print on the board when I walked in ”Ignorance of the Law is no excuse”.    If you really wanted to make changes in this world then we would need to defund the politicians.

Mind Driven

secretsoftheserpent

To understand humans you must understand the mind.  Humans are mind driven.  Everything that they do arises from their own thoughts.  They develop opinions, ideologies and beliefs that become the dominate forces in their personality.  Yet most have no understanding as to what the mind really is or understand how to use it.  People think the mind is a great computer.  That they can program and educate it and they will be successful.  This post will show you that this is not the case.  The human mind is not good. It was a mind created from an evil act.  The human mind is immoral at best.

Get Out of Your Own Way

secretsoftheserpent

We think failure is scary. We all want to succeed. We want things to go our way. What you don’t realize is succeeding is scarier than failing. Why? Because failure is familiar. You are used to it. Deep down inside, when it comes to trauma, you do not care if it sucks or not. All your DNA cares about is “Is this known?” Every human secretly gets what they are used to. This is why self sabotage kicks in when you have a certain amount of success. We all have that ceiling that if we pass it we will self sabotage. We are not scared of failure, we are scared of succeeding.

How to Understand Media

secretsoftheserpent

Life used to be about our own private lives.  Today world affairs have made their way into everyones life.  For the most part this has been difficult for us.  Most people are intelligent and have good intentions, but they are not trained in international affairs.  The average person knows nothing about governments or politics.   Even though we go to the polls to vote for someone we think will represent us, we know nothing about the candidates or their policies.  People judge candidates by seeing them on the internet and television.  Everything about these candidates is bias to what they think you will want to hear.  Yet this is the way everyone makes their decisions.  We like people, we believe in people, we are gullible, but we want someone who thinks like we do to run the world. This type of thinking has gone stale.   We don’t live in…

Engage Life

secretsoftheserpent

We all know what we need to do to be successful in something we want to do.  We know if we want to be good at a sport or instrument we need to practice.  We know if we want to meet new people we need to go up and talk to them.  If we want more money we need to work more or get a better job.  We all know what we need to do most just don’t do it.  The challenge for must of us is not the knowledge it’s the execution.

Show Me How to Live

secretsoftheserpent

Today people are always worried, frightened, full of anxiety and disillusioned.  This is causing us to get sick.  Our bodies eventually can’t take the stress and break down.  The last couple of years they have put our anxieties into hyper drive, but we have been a stressed out people for some time.  Why?   We have been given a life, but not shown how to live.

A 21st Century Wheel of the Year: Reskilling at Imbolc

The Druid's Garden

Imbolc–the first signs of spring (artwork by myself and my father, Mark Driscoll)

In a traditional neopagan Wheel of the Year, Imbolc is the holiday that offers the first signs of spring.  Most traditionally, this is when the ewes began to lactate, and the snowdrops appeared on the landscape in the British Isles.  In the age of climate instability, traditional seasonal interpretations become challenged for many reasons–not the least of which are climate disruptions.  So how might we bring the holiday of Imbolc into the 21st century and think about what this holiday means to us today?

As I’ve discussed in earlier posts in this series, the 21st Century, the Age of the Anthropocene, offers us a set of unprecedented challenges and yet opportunities.  As a permaculture designer, I think it’s important to recognize that while the problems we already face are unavoidable, these problems give us a…

Cyclops II

secretsoftheserpent

I have received a few emails asking me why I am calling the woke people of today cyclops.  For those that have read my Cyclops post they know exactly what Im saying but I thought this would be a perfect time to bring a myth into the modern world.  We still have the same problems the ancients had.  History always repeats itself.

Where is the World Headed?

secretsoftheserpent

What do you think wealth is? Most think wealth is millions of dollars. No one knows what real wealth truly is. I goto my regular job everyday, coach my soccer team, have a family life, I get out in nature, travel, throw ideas around with anyone willing to listen to my crazy mind, think about what powerful ideas I can put out on my website and at the end of the day I will toast the Goddess. That is being rich!!! That is wealth. I know so many people with a lot of money and they are not wealthy. They are not rich. They have forgotten how to enjoy life. The wealth in life is not the final product, it is the journey. A lot of so called rich people have forgotten that. They really have lost their souls. They are so filthy rich that they don’t continue the journey…

An Approach to Spiritual Retreat and Rejuvenation: Going Dark Week

The Druid's Garden

Perhaps now more than ever, the idea of taking regular retreats is a critical one. Last week, in my post on the Winter Solstice, I shared the deep need for restorative activities that allow us to heal, process, and deepen our practice–particularly in today’s age and as we move further into the age of the Anthropocene. Finding restoration activities are particularly critical because so many of us are languishing, dealing with the real effects of deepening climate change, dealing with the long-term upheaval and separation due to the pandemic, among a host of other issues. Thus, this week, I want to share one practice that I’ve developed over the years that is particularly helpful–I call it “going dark” or “inner life retreat.”

What is a Going Dark Spiritual Retreat?
