addiction


Salty Spread

A boyfriend who’s been “…ripped
off blind.” A mystery man who
wanders the streets in a gulag called
Vancouver’s down town east side; is
he a brother or a childhood friend of
a girl? A girl who is now a woman,
consumed by a compulsion she is
helpless to resist, no matter what the
consequences and she gives up her
dignity to sate its demanding hunger.
Innocence of love and life, for each and
every one of them has long been lost to
the thief called addiction.

for everyone who’s mother has passed


Divine Mother Prayer Dance (The Whole Thing)

O Divine Mother

In the form of Annapurna, the giver of food, we worship Thee.

May we ever be grateful for the nourishment of the teachings…

In the form of Lakshmi, you hold the Lotus of Higher Consciousness, which is rooted in the mud of earthy existence.

Bless me…

As Durga, seated on the Lion’s throne, you courageously slew the buffalo-headed demon of egoism and pride.

Though you are fierce, yet we need not fear you. You seek only to liberate us from selfish ignorance…

As the Goddess Saraswati, you play the Veena, and inspire us with the heavenly lure of Divine Inspiration.

Goddess of Wisdom, come to me.

O Divine Mother

May all my speech and idle talk be mantra

All actions of my hands be mudra

I place down the Siva Linga, and pick up rose petals for my worship.

I scatter the petals in gratitude for thy Divine Abundance.

Placing down the flower basket, I lift up the sacred lamp.

I shine it in all directions, ever  seeking a vision of Thee.

Placing down the lamp I pick up the sacred bell.

May it ring clear and dispel all gloom and negativity.

May I ever hear your call.

Please accept my offerings.

May all eating and drinking be the offering of oblations unto Thee.

All lying down prostrations before Thee.

May all pleasures be as offering my entire self unto Thee,

May everything I do be taken as Thy worship.

O Divine Mother.
