The Secret Meaning In Love Songs

The Secret Meaning In Love Songs

Posted by Mark Jordan on Jul 5, 2016

Have you ever noticed that a lot of love songs could just as easily apply to falling in love with yourself? I know, we’re raised to believe that only narcissists, certain presidential candidates, and Tony Stark can be in love with themselves. But as a culture I fear...

Endings and Beginnings

Posted by Mark Jordan on Jun 28, 2016

This might sound a little strange, but one of the things I’ve learned over the years is that modern western culture (and middle-class American culture in particular) lacks ceremonies and rituals. We don’t give ourselves opportunities to mourn the end of something...

Dissecting Our Kryptonite

Posted by Mark Jordan on Jun 23, 2016

You’re never really going to defeat your own fears and resistance by cutting those memories out of your life (as much as that sounds really appealing at times). The only way you’re going to end the war with the experiences that shaped you is to embrace them, dance...

Monday, Monday, Can’t Trust That Day

A healthy dose of crap seems to have been prescribed for me these past 10 days. Even though Mercury came out of retrograde, the feelings that it normally causes haven’t gone away, or even diminished for that matter. If anything they have intensified. This last Mercury...

The Power of the Pity Party

Posted by Mark Jordan on May 25, 2016

Have you ever noticed that sometimes you need to have a pity party in order to move through whatever it is that is bothering you? Hell, Batman did it. So did Peter Parker and the Hulk. Even Captain America wanted to give up when he woke up 50 years later. The thing is...

What Does Your Favorite Superhero Say About You?

Posted by Mark Jordan on May 17, 2016

We tend to like heroes that portray something that we aspire to be. Peter Parker was always my favorite superhero growing up. He was a bit of a photo-geek (like me) who just wanted to go out with Mary Jane Watson – the pretty girl who was out of his league (also like...

Building Your Own Secret Lab for Growth

Posted by Mark Jordan on May 10, 2016

In 2003 I was dying from a very toxic relationship. Seriously, my kidneys were failing. Intuitively I knew that this disease had something to do with my relationship, so I worked my way out of it. And back in. And then back out again. I was walking on eggshells every...

Have You Ever Been an Outsider?

Posted by Mark Jordan on May 3, 2016

Have you ever moved to a new town, started a new school, or begun a new job where you didn’t really know more than a small group of people? Even beginning high school takes you from a situation you understood and puts you in a new one. One that requires you to learn...
