Spiritual Soap Has Become The Black Sheep
You’ve got a front-row seat to a major transformation.
We’ve come a long way from the first edition of this newsletter. I had no clue what I was doing when I started this project. I didn’t know what I wanted out of my own life, I wasn’t sure what I believed, and I had no idea there were so many people who would care to read along as I explored ideas that helped me fill those gaps.
Like most artists, I’m attached to the delusion that no one understands me and I’ll never find someone who appreciates what I’m doing. And yet, every day another subscriber proves me wrong. This is how I know many of you are ready for what’s next. The Spiritual Soap newsletter will be reborn to meet me where I am now–a braver, bolder, more genuine me who knows what she’s seeking.
Welcome to The Black Sheep, a publication for people who see the dysfunction of our society and don’t fear walking a solitary path to pursue curiosity, truth, and honesty.
My career was born of braving social isolation for free expression. Where I once let fear restrict me, I now choose freedom–the freedom to speak honestly, to pursue truth instead of safety, and to question all things in an effort to understand them. I never realized how unfree we often choose to be; we censor ourselves, limit our dreams, and outsource our thinking. Unfree people can’t free others from their fears and struggles, instead they usually try adding new members to their miserable group.
When I look at the problems and pain in our society, I find a common root they stem from: a fearful desire to control others. I once felt that fear and played the same authoritarian power games that are common today, like controlling what people say and dictating what they should believe.
The Black Sheep will be the guide I wish I had for becoming a freer person – one willing to name the dysfunction in our society even if it comes with a cost. The Black Sheep will be a resource for the ideas, art, attitudes, and information that help us escape the cage of fear. An oasis amid a culture of control and regression.
If you want to play a bigger part in freeing our culture, become a Black Sheep by joining as a paid supporter. For the price of a particularly luxurious coffee (who would want any less), you can support my work and get:
