Election 2012 and Beyond: Voting to Spread the Sparkle
It’s that time of the year again!  That time when Americans are bombarded by generic promises cooed through shiny white politician teeth.  Also a time when America’s top dog and his biggest rival play highschool mean girls- talking mad shit behind each others backs (on national television).  Every time we turn on the TV, we can’t help but be reminded how much America sucks, and that it’s all home boy’s fault; or, conversely, how much America is going to suck if dude man takes the big seat.  It’s interesting to see how campaigning has evolved in our lifetimes from commercial...

I recently had the luck of running into the wonderful Jessica Dugan at Sonic Bloom in Colorado.

Hitting an age where you realize that you...

The World Kindness Tour: On the Road with Kemy Joseph
I recently had a phone date with Kemy Joseph, one of the Sparkliest people I know. Conversations with Kemy are always refreshing because after a little small talk about the weather, we can cut straight to the chase of how the universe has been treating us, our latest epiphanies, and what is to come of the world. Today we talked about how beneficial it is to be content with our present situation, and, although challenging,  the importance that comes with avoiding a constant comparison of the events in your life to the happenings of your best friend’s or neighbor’s.

Identifying the Ego
The ego works hard every second challenging any chance for inner peace, but like growth’s need for rain, the false self is a must and without it there is no truth. But is it fair to blame ourselves for our destructive habitual thinking patterns or is holding our society responsible justified? After a little bit of research and my own individual study I think its safe to hold both ourselves and our society accountable for our overactive egos. One may suggest that we are our truest selves at birth, when we have no consciousness of self yet. The ego first...
