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””

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”

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”

Sudoku Revelation

I was journaling a few days ago and mentioned that I’d just had a minor revelation while working a more challenging Sudoku puzzle, which was to “Keep working it,” until the correct number for that square became obvious (‘can be this number, but can’t be that one’, etc.). That one breakthrough puzzle piece then becameContinue reading “Sudoku Revelation”

Happiness Is A Mindstate

Yearend assessments are often the necessary precursor to developing a New Year’s Resolution, so after determining first that I had certainly blown my 2020’s NY Resolution of “Having More Fun This Year!” my next year’s attempt would have to be scaled back a bit to account for our current and near-future situations with the pandemicContinue reading “Happiness Is A Mindstate”

Alberto Villoldo’s Guided “Journey to the Upper World”

Just passing this option along to anyone interested in experiencing the standard Shamanic guided journey—this one being to the Upper World for specific purposes or for asking key questions. These shamanic journeying experiences are fairly subjective, and usually you will travel to the Lower World prior to going above, so when he talks about acquiringContinue reading “Alberto Villoldo’s Guided “Journey to the Upper World””

The Wounded-Child Within

Love that picture above.   It expresses so clearly our inner need for closeness without all these additional words that I will soon add here. It shows our need to reach out to others and to be recognized and ACCEPTED by others—to truly be seen as a ‘being of substance’ within the structural framework ofContinue reading “The Wounded-Child Within”

Un-Becoming, Just To Be YOU

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”       ~ Paul Coelho Had I not just heard this same thing a day ago during a phone call with a close friend, IContinue reading “Un-Becoming, Just To Be YOU”

The Card Said “WRITE”

It’s a difficult time now for everyone; and since I’m such a control freak, just sitting around feeling this collective sense of helplessness, is not within my capability. I’ve read all I could read. I’ve sat quietly—I’ve meditated.  Now I have to DO something—I have to act in some way. Be productive. And since I’mContinue reading “The Card Said “WRITE””

An Unfortunate Time for Inner Reflection

Normally I would suggest that spending quality time in isolation is a perfect way to meditate and reflect on our lives, etc., but there is too much at stake here for flippancy, and I doubt that many would see this period of time as advantageous for much of anything. I will say that if youContinue reading “An Unfortunate Time for Inner Reflection”

On Relationships

How do you define a relationship? Can it be with one or more others, or can it be with your own self alone?  Can you have a type of relationship with creatures other than human?  Can you even have a relationship with a concept or an idea? What is this thing we call relationship andContinue reading “On Relationships”

Searching for LIFE’s Meaning

I mentioned earlier that I’d address ‘spirituality’ later. Well this must be the time, because the search for meaning in our lives is likely the biggest reason that you are trying to find your own truth. As members of this expansive human species, we need to feel that we have a purpose or a reasonContinue reading “Searching for LIFE’s Meaning”
