Born Outside the Box

Reality transforms as we question everything.

About This Blogger

Knowing full well that every single one of us is extraordinary, connected to unlimited genius and beauty when we choose to be, I have lived a rather ordinary life — the life of a dreamer.  Although I tried many ways to do the creative things that I love as a way to make a living, I have yet to achieve that goal.  Therefore,  I worked at many jobs, in many different fields, to pay the bills and take care of myself and my son.  I make the best of things, question everything and keep going.

As an autodidact, I have no degrees, titles or claims to fame. A life-long truth seeker and explorer, I started this blog to share my own experience of whatever this reality is. It is also a place to share the work of other writers who speak of things that resonate with my soul.

The things I post here are in the spirit of having a conversation, not in the spirit of asking anyone to believe anything.  I never encourage anyone to believe anything. I don’t necessarily feel comfortable with all theories or conclusions, but if an article or video gives me some insight or makes we wonder, I will post it.  We don’t need any more religions or belief systems. We need more questions. And we need lots and lots of love rooted in integrity.

Our words and actions are our sacred power, dynamically affecting the experience of the whole planet. Together, we are creating this wild adventure.

I write here to honor this adventure, to honor the great gathering of souls, spanning all age groups, who are scattered across the planet.

Together, we have the opportunity to reshape this world through our words and our actions, through our tears, our precious humor and through our love.

Thank you for being here at this time and for sharing in this grand adventure of transformation.

  1. Hello Kathleen,
    I’m not sure if this is the best way to make a comment, but I would like to thank you for “bringing back” Zen Gardner! I have missed his writings so much. It’s so good to see that there are reasonable people who were not fooled by the “witch hunt” that Zen has had to endure. While it by no means comes close to what he has had to endure, it hurt so much to see a supposedly “enlightened” community turn on him (but I do feel it was to silence him because he spoke so much truth and threatened the “establishment”, both mainstream and alternative). However, it also made me take a good hard look at the people in the so called “truther” community and the incredible hypocrisy that I hadn’t seen before. I even took about a 3 month break from all internet activity, especially Facebook, with the exception of my email account. Luckily, Zen kept me on his email list and I was made aware from an email from him about your blog.
    So I send both you and Zen my heartfelt gratitude to continue the very tough work to shine a light on the truth and to be your authentic selves.
    (If you do have a comment section, please let me know as I do not see any other way to comment on your blog. )

    Much gratitude,

  2. I have just read you article silencing of Zen Gardner and felt moved to write something which I never do …..
    I loved and looked forwarded everyday to reading article on Zen website it was a thought provoking ,non judgemental site that helped me so much, I’m just another zombie living in the matrix and Zen help me understand who I was more and helped me ask more question, it was a very sad thing that happened to him and it didn’t matter what side you took you- as from each person perspective there is no right or wrong -it about what you do with the information -some people choice to judge other choice to forgive there are lesson to be learned here , but its for each person to look at them selves to answer the question

    thanks you for your honest ,for a lovely blog and its now in my favourites to look at each day
    peace, love and blessing
    🙂
