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’”

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?”
