Irrational Logic

Perhaps the world makes sense in some perverse way. Or perhaps it doesn’t. But most of us believe that it MUST make some type of sense for us to continue to live comfortably within it. Because if the world made NO sense, then wouldn’t that make us as senseless and purposeless as the world aroundContinue reading “Irrational Logic”

‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience

Again, I’m just sharing a good source of info and inspiration. The online company “Sounds True,” founded by Tami Simon, is a great source of both. Here she is interviewing one of my favorite Jungians: Dr. James Hollis, whose focus is always on finding more ‘meaning’ in our lives. It is well worth listening to,Continue reading “‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience”

The Gray-Scale Zone

Over the last 25 years, I’ve been trained in many healing modalities—many techniques used to help facilitate a client’s progress during their own personal healing journey. In other words: I know ‘stuff.’  I can do ‘stuff.’ My more spiritual work began with the Japanese energy-therapy practice of REIKI.  Then I received training in Karuna REIKIContinue reading “The Gray-Scale Zone”

Expecting Sanity in an Insane World

Sometimes I do find humor in my own ‘arrogant humanness.’ In fact if I couldn’t laugh at myself and how my hamster-wheel mind turns, then there would be little to laugh about in this world. My closest group of friends, like the rest of the world around us, is undergoing their own set of personalContinue reading “Expecting Sanity in an Insane World”

The Door

Couldn’t choose between the two images, as they both reflect my present thoughts, so will post them both together because I think that’s where they need to be considered—together. I’ve previously elaborated on the KNOWN and the UNKNOWN (“Understanding Nothing”), so there is no point in trying to squeeze more from that thought; but whenContinue reading “The Door”

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””

‘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”

Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’

Alberto Villoldo   “We have to become still in the midst of the turmoil so we can observe clearly how our actions and the actions of others, past and present, fit together in the tapestry of life. In the timeless instant when we stop moving and simply witness the moment, the dust settles and the bigContinue reading “Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’”

Becoming a Spiritual Warrior

I really didn’t want to blatantly rip off Alberto Villoldo’s latest newsletter, but what he mentions here is worth sharing in its entirety with others who might have some interest in the subject matter discussed. In some ways this does remind me of Buddhism’s “Eight-fold Path”—or “The Way to Enlightenment,” complete with the “Four NobleContinue reading “Becoming a Spiritual Warrior”
