An Encounter with Reality

So what is ‘reality’ saying to you today? To me reality is saying ‘spring is finally here and new life is popping up everywhere.’ But if I were in deep meditation, that ‘reality’ might appear quite differently. This is one of the hardest concepts to consider: that what you perceive to be REALITY is simplyContinue reading “An Encounter with Reality”

Climbing the Mountain of Consciousness

From Resonance Science Foundation: “Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still existsContinue reading “Climbing the Mountain of Consciousness”

You Are the Focal Point

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us Universe… He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few personsContinue reading “You Are the Focal Point”

The Fractal Spiral

This image is a 2-D depiction of a 3-D fractal spiral—portrayed like a transparent conch shell. For some reason in nature certain living species use this geometric pattern of growth for creating solid shell-like objects, as well as for flower petal or seed distribution, besides other natural examples. I’m looking at this design and thinkingContinue reading “The Fractal Spiral”

Myopic Creatures

“Humans are myopic creatures full of hubris to a degree that is laughable.” –Daniel   Amen to that, brother.  Myself included. This quote was from an email by “Daniel” from Awakentheworld.com about the new film “Samadhi: Part 3”; and it’s a short bit revisited from his encounter with the Seraphim—highest order of angels—next to God.Continue reading “Myopic Creatures”

Consulting ‘Doctor ME’

I’m still reviewing the Cope Yoga book, and remembering now how substantive this book could be since Stephen Cope was a practicing psychotherapist applying the Yoga Sutra principles to his working-group associations.  Lots to ponder here.  Very deep read. But as I review the book, I think one of the most prevalent thoughts for meContinue reading “Consulting ‘Doctor ME’”

LIFE Itself IS the Path

“LIFE itself IS the path”  This post’s title is not a new thought or slogan; but while reading a book review, seeing it stated again today struck me as timely for consolidating my own meandering thoughts. Because what are we ALL experiencing in some way right now?   LIFE. This ‘whatever–it-is’ that we are currently enduringContinue reading “LIFE Itself IS the Path”

Only Be In Silence

Quote shared from Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness “You need not go to heaven to see God; nor need you speak loud, as if God were far away; nor need you cry for wings like a dove to fly to Him. Only be in silence, and you will come upon God within yourself.” ~ SaintContinue reading “Only Be In Silence”

The Peace of Wild Things

Ecological Consciousness: “When we speak of Nature it is wrong to forget that we are ourselves a part of Nature.” — Henri Matisse Amen.

I Believe…

Anytime I elaborate on the subject of “beliefs” I know that I run the risk of offending others, but I truly think we all need to better examine WHY we believe what we do at this point in our lives. I myself was born and raised in the Heartland of America—Baptized Lutheran as a babyContinue reading “I Believe…”

Beyond the Illusion of Separateness

“A mystic sees beyond the illusion of separateness into the intricate web of life in which all things are expressions of a single Whole. You can call this web ‘God, the Tao, Nature, the Great Spirit, the Infinite Mystery, Mother or Father,’ (B. Fuller often called it “UNIVERSE.”) but it can be known only asContinue reading “Beyond the Illusion of Separateness”

The Quest for Meaning

As a voracious reader, when the library that I frequent had shut down for the second time due to local Covid 19 outbreaks, it forced me to review some oldies on my own book shelves.  My previous posts on self-realization etc., reminded me that one of my earliest experiences with that subject had to beContinue reading “The Quest for Meaning”
