Weathering the Storm

I’ve resisted commenting prior on the disastrous situation in Ukraine because to do so would simply be to add one more useless opinion to airwaves overloaded with them, and would be as hopelessly ineffective as all the rest. But I do also recognize that there is something far greater happening here besides the obvious crueltyContinue reading “Weathering the Storm”

“I’m Fine”

Saw this T-shirt ad and laughed, remembering a time well over a decade ago when I was saying the same thing to anyone who asked: “Yeah, no,… I’m fine.” “Yeah, no…” just by itself, said it all.  Inner conflict reigned supreme in me, and I was really struggling at the time. My guess is IContinue reading ““I’m Fine””

Abandoning Our Views

Tree of Life Fan Page “For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.” ~ Thích Nhat Hanh

The “In-between”

I was writing in my journal this morning and mentioned something about sitting here in my recliner just “contemplating the mysteries of BIRTH/DEATH and whatever lies in-between” when I thought, yes, that “In-between” is exactly what makes the BIRTH/DEATH cycle a purposeful and cohesive closed-loop system. It gives meaning to why we are here doingContinue reading “The “In-between””

On the Same Wave-Length

Must be something in the air.  All the folks I follow are tuned in to the same thought frequency. Alberto Villoldo  “According to Quantum physics, past and future are not separate, location doesn’t exist, the world only comes into existence once observed, and this thing we call reality is one of many, possibly infinite, parallelContinue reading “On the Same Wave-Length”

Beyond Prosaic Reality

 “I believe that within the core of every human being dwells a yearning for the meaning that lies beyond the prosaic reality of everyday life. We reach out for evidence of something beyond the ordinary.”     ~ Denise Linn       Earthschool Harmony *** Love the image beside these words—the perspective juxtaposition of immediate foreground against theContinue reading “Beyond Prosaic Reality”

‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last

I did chuckle when I saw this saying above: “To understand nothing takes time,” because I remember thinking as a junior in high school that there couldn’t be ANYTHING new to learn that I already did not know, so what was the point of my senior year?  Ha-ha. (Yes, I actually said that.) It’s hardContinue reading “‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last”

Creating Our Personal Reality

Haven’t mentioned Dr. Joe in awhile, so since today he seems to be touching on the REALITY subject that I’ve been recently exploring, I’ll list him as a good source of theoretical discourse and experiential training in what it takes to shift your thinking, your energy, and then your life to what you truly wantContinue reading “Creating Our Personal Reality”

The Transition of Thich Nhat Hanh

Plum Village Public Notice: “The International Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism announces that our beloved teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has passed away peacefully at Từ Hiếu Temple in Huế, Vietnam, on 22nd January, 2022, at the age of 95. We invite our global spiritual family to take a few moments to be still, toContinue reading “The Transition of Thich Nhat Hanh”

From A Female Perspective

 “When the Yoga Sutra began to be taught by priests and scholars from a masculine Hindu tradition, one with the power of gurus and temples and decades of study behind it, the feminine aspect of Spirit, Devi, began to be pushed aside and a disdainful attitude toward women arose.” – Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. Yoga, Power,Continue reading “From A Female Perspective”

Reinventing Ourselves

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”  ~ Hal Borland ~ Art by Mark Duffin (shared from   ॐ Simplicity, Elegance and Grace of Nature ॐ ) *** As one who has spent decades reinventing myself career-wise or at leastContinue reading “Reinventing Ourselves”

How I Feel

*** “The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, they speak to me. The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me. The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning, the dewdrop on the flower, speaks toContinue reading “How I Feel”
