  • I’m in love with you @jessicachastain for a reason U should know in the meantime: but I’m not looking for the Jessica you pretend to be on the first pics: U are beautiful & that you ate capable to look like this is a real gift & treasure but concerning everyday life I need a woman - a true commandante - somebody just like @jennifer.garner = one of your many friends. Maybe you are that woman variant @jessicachastain -this would be great: the greatest gift & sheer grace of my life apart from the birth of Hannah Ocho, but honestly, Darling, I doubt this very much, when I consider the events of the last months since you posted >waiting for the bus< or >Sprichst Du Deutsch?< it’s sad, but true, Dear! 😞• •• maybe you know a way out: cause U won’t follow what I say or recommend to you, right?!?? Then go ahead & tell me your solution, say something, call me, make a concrete offer - if U don’t wanna lose me & Ocho!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • My latest for @huffpost. This one's been on my mind for years. Grateful to finally share it.

“In my early 20s, I dated a man who, when asked whether he believed in God, said: ‘I believe in me.’ He was a good, kind, smart man; the type who grew herbs on his windowsill and played trombone in a jazz band and coached a kids’ soccer team. Total marriage material. But I knew in that instant it would never work between us.

I am a person of deep faith: a preacher’s kid, a yoga teacher, and a meditation geek with a master’s degree in systematic theology. I’ve spent my whole life belly-deep in the spiritual world. So raising a tiny person of faith shouldn’t be so hard.

But, dammit; it is.

I don’t know what to do about church for my kid. Studies show I’m not alone. Youth are fleeing the organized church in droves. Millennials are increasingly raising their children as “nones.” Self-identified atheism has doubled among Generation Z. And mainline Protestant denominations are famously flailing.

Spiritual trauma and toxic theology run rampant. Between the United Methodist Church’s recent upholding of the ban on same-sex marriage and the ordination of LGBTQ ministers, the Catholic Church’s ongoing revelations of pedophilia horror, and the Southern Baptists’ February unveiling of vast child abuse, why would any reasonably progressive parent choose to send their child (alone!) into a church basement?

There’s no question that I want to raise my son with a deep spiritual practice and a reverence for mystery. But where to find a religious upbringing he doesn’t have to unlearn?

I was doing yoga on the kitchen floor one afternoon in 2015, listening to an interview with Buddhist meditation teacher @lodrorinzler while my toddler son napped. Rinzler talked about growing up Buddhist — being taught he was fundamentally good — and how rare and refreshing it was to not have to “unlearn” the deep psychological wounds of the doctrine of Original Sin (as had so many of his Christian friends). His words struck me. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since.”
