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 likely won’t pursue it but at least I can offer you the Myss promo to view to decide if you mightContinue 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’”

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”

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”

Adornment Versus Composition

“Morning dew on a dragonfly,”Image by Lasse Andersson As a former Graphic Artist I can easily appreciate a good image, and I find dragonflies interesting in their own right; but a bejeweled dragonfly is even more so. At first glance the dragonfly appears to be composed of water droplets intricately connected and dispersed throughout theContinue reading “Adornment Versus Composition”

Who Believes in TRUTH?

I think this graphic was from the “Tao and Zen” Facebook site.  Of course since I’d just been writing about TRUTH in general, I was interested in it and in reading some of the extensive comments posted under it. Fascinating!  Even the statement within the graphic created controversy. Comments were verbose and varied.  This wasContinue reading “Who Believes in TRUTH?”

Common Understandings

I’m big into self-realization and self-actualization, and even had a division in my own company, Foundations of Light, LLC, that was called “True-Self Actualization”—meaning that I conducted classes on teaching others how to recognize and actualize their True Self. I know. These are just words. They mean little if you can’t even get your headContinue reading “Common Understandings”

Inconvenient Truth

“…TRUTH, for most people, is a secondary consideration.”  Bertrand Russell This was an easier graphic to grab than the one I preferred, but I can’t make a stationary image produce the same effect as an animated GIF in motion. On this first day of the year that we all hope is far better than theContinue reading “Inconvenient Truth”

The Mind As Parachute

Must be soap-box time for me. The holidays seem to bring out all the latent philosophers with slogans and well-wishes, and ….how can I say this gently?  Preachiness.  And of course, I am no different. So when I revert to quoting Frank Zappa, … one of the most controversial, free-spirited and free-wheeling musical/film-directing artists ofContinue reading “The Mind As Parachute”

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”

Such A World

Pretty sure that the Taoist Lao Tzu said, “Those who know, do not say.  Those who say, do not know.”  So clearly he did not know or would not say. There is much about this LIFE that baffles me—so many mysteries, so much unknown. I can acknowledge that there is much that we THINK thatContinue reading “Such A World”
