I'm Shivering on Mt. Everest

Who Am I?

Without sufficient Real Love, we can be only empty, confused, and afraid. In that condition, we can’t really know who we are. We’re nothing but reactions to pain. So, how do we figure out who we are? First, we need to find people who can…

Hanging in the Air

My friend Paul wrote me and stated, “I'm stuck in a place where I can’t or won’t trust. I know you’re offering to help me, because you've been there and you know the way out. And you care about me. But I'd have to trust you completely.…

The Rash

Marti wrote me and said that her two-year-old daughter, Darcy, had developed a rash all over her body, as though she had rolled around in stinging nettle. But it was January, and the nettle had died out months before. So they put an antihistamine…

Here Come the Monsters

Elaine called me one morning and said, “I woke up afraid.” Before she could continue, I said, “And here come the monsters.” “What do you mean by that?” “When you get afraid, Elaine, your mind starts spinning at a hundred…

Chewing Gravel

Brenda vigorously expressed a desire to find Real Love and happiness. It’s a start. Brenda liked to do things her way, however, so her progress was punctuated by many bumps in the road. One day she called to describe an interaction she’d…

Anxious for Peace

The zen master, Adyashanti, tells of a man who runs up to a wise man and asks him—while jogging in place—“Where do I run, to find rest? Quick, tell me.” The wise man says, “If you just stop for a moment, you will find rest. Rest…

Clinging Like a Baby Monkey

I saw a middle-aged man who was anxious and depressed, and was having considerable conflict and disappointments in his marriage and at work. The more loved he felt, the more astonished he became at how long he had lived without that life-giving…

We Can’t Skip the Steps

All his life Paul had been criticized, pressured, manipulated, and neglected by his parents. When asked, however, he said that his family had been “wonderfully loving,” because it was all he knew, and he didn’t want to commit the crime…

Love the Way We Want

Often love is accompanied by the enormous inconvenience of being delivered in the way we need, not the way we want.

The Buried Diamond

I talked to Bradley at length. Distracted by fear and confusion, his sense of worth was very low. “You’re like a diamond buried deep in the ground,” I said. “In its present location, it’s fairly useless. It doesn’t fertilize the…

The Papaya Mystery

I once lived for two years in Samoa, nearly four hundred miles from the next major island group in the South Pacific. At the time, conditions were fairly primitive, with only a few miles of paved roads, no toilets to speak of, and everyone in…
