This Aperture’s View Today

While this is not what I had intended to write about today, it must be what is internally pushing hardest to appear here now, so there you go. Similar to Popeye’s favorite slogan, “I writes what I writes.”  It’s like that Alan Watts quote, whatever has the strongest desire to transmit at the time throughContinue reading “This Aperture’s View Today”

Defining Your Identity

“Who ARE you?”   Can you truthfully answer that above question? I’ve identified myself so many different ways during all the phases of my life that I’m not sure how I would have answered that question during each of those growth phases, because to me IDENTITY has more to do with how we think ofContinue reading “Defining Your Identity”

The Things We Tell Ourselves

“Every fragment of self-talk is a little story in the head that goes around, and then you look at reality through the lens of the little story.”  Eckhart Tolle I didn’t title this “The LIES We Tell Ourselves” because sometimes those replaying thought-monologs aren’t really ‘lies,’ but are more likely residues of our optimistic ‘wishfulContinue reading “The Things We Tell Ourselves”

Woundedness

Yes, “wounds”—we all have them—physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual. We all have felt the sting of rejection or humiliation in our lives, or we still have unresolved issues that stem from previous childhood or relationship traumas.  That inner wounding aspect is simply an unpleasant but necessary part of this experience called LIFE.   IfContinue reading “Woundedness”

Called or Uncalled

This quote was hand-carved over the archway to C. G. Jung’s study: “Called or uncalled: God is present.” Which as Ken James, Ph.D. described during his session of the Jungian summit is to consider that whatever calls us to our supposed ‘purpose in life’ is always around us, ever-present; we just may not notice itContinue reading “Called or Uncalled”

Cultivating Joy

ॐ Nature Heals, Nature Reveals ॐ “I don’t think anyone ‘finds’ joy. Rather, we cultivate it by searching for the preciousness of small things, the ordinary miracles, that strengthen our hearts so we can keep them open to what is difficult: delight in taking a shower or a slow walk that has no destination, inContinue reading “Cultivating Joy”

The Mobius Strip—Mind Beyond Death

A mobius strip is an endless looping band where the separate ends of the band were reconnected after giving it a half twist so the eye travels up and over and back again—right-side up then upside down then right-side up, etc.. You know—like the LIFE/DEATH process itself. It’s a continuum of sorts—a thing with noContinue reading “The Mobius Strip—Mind Beyond Death”

Holographic Snapshots of the Whole

If you look closely at the image above, you can see a graphic metaphor for LIFE as we know it. That blurry whitish background is the daisy itself more clearly focused in the lesser dew-drop versions of it on the spider web. As each droplet reflects the object that it mimics, it does so withinContinue reading “Holographic Snapshots of the Whole”

Examining the Roles That We Play

Eckhart Tolle “Authentic human interactions become impossible when you lose yourself in a role.” – Eckhart Tolle Over the course of our lives we learn many informative techniques to advance our personal lives in one direction or another. We may even choose a role in life often associated with our strong need for personal satisfactionContinue reading “Examining the Roles That We Play”

The Amazing Verb Called ‘Bucky’

I am such a fan of R. Buckminster Fuller that whenever I see someone else quote him, I stop whatever I’m doing and read it. This 5ft-2 inch intellectual powerhouse was an ‘American engineer, architect, and futurist who developed the geodesic dome—the only large dome that can be set directly on the ground as aContinue reading “The Amazing Verb Called ‘Bucky’”

The End of Victimization

I was listening this morning to a free promo video on Caroline Myss’ “The Mystical Truths Behind Radical Change”.  Pretty sure she has an entire course on the subject (“The Great Transformation”), and I can offer you the Myss promo to view to decide if you might want to learn more:  https://product.soundstrue.com/the-great-transformation/free-video/ It seems toContinue reading “The End of Victimization”

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’”
