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”

Only Be In Silence

Quote shared from Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness “You need not go to heaven to see God; nor need you speak loud, as if God were far away; nor need you cry for wings like a dove to fly to Him. Only be in silence, and you will come upon God within yourself.” ~ SaintContinue reading “Only Be In Silence”

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”

The Quest for Meaning

As a voracious reader, when the library that I frequent had shut down for the second time due to local Covid 19 outbreaks, it forced me to review some oldies on my own book shelves.  My previous posts on self-realization etc., reminded me that one of my earliest experiences with that subject had to beContinue reading “The Quest for Meaning”

Be the Awareness

“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.” Eckhart Tolle Many times that suggestion is easier said than done, but I do know that it is possible to do it.  Throughout the day I’ve begun asking myself WHY I am thinking what I am thinking, or WHY I am feeling theContinue reading “Be the Awareness”

The Perplexing State of Education Today

One might think that this current pandemic is creating a crisis in education institutions around the world, but I personally think it offers a unique opportunity for all of us to redefine ‘teaching and learning experiences’ for educators, students, and parents. Probably the most soul-numbing career I have ever experienced was teaching Technical Writing toContinue reading “The Perplexing State of Education Today”

Branches of the Same Tree

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.” – Albert Einstein This quote may elicit a mixed reaction from many people because ‘freedom’ is a word that meansContinue reading “Branches of the Same Tree”

Reflections On My Left Hand

I have far greater appreciation now for the lesser-used appendage: my left hand. Last Wednesday morning bright and early I took a “woops” dive off the back stoop—two steps high. As I plummeted to the ground I turned mid-flight to brace myself before I hit the ground, and naturally put my right hand out toContinue reading “Reflections On My Left Hand”

Traumatic Emotional Impacts Become Looping Negative Memories

Saw a short video by Dr. Pat Ogden, the creator of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, on helping a young anxiety client to counter her own reactive responses to the world around her. Ogden is one of the few well-known psychotherapists who treat clients more holistically recognizing that the kinetic movements or posturing of the physical body oftenContinue reading “Traumatic Emotional Impacts Become Looping Negative Memories”

True Empowerment

Yeah, what he said. Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE “We should be brave enough to contemplate our lives, do what we thought was “outside the box,” and do it repeatedly. When we do that, we are on our way to a greater level of personal power.⁣ True empowerment comes when weContinue reading “True Empowerment”

“What Is REALLY Going On?”

In many ways it’s been a rough year for ALL of us; and were I into ‘standard thinking’ modes, I’d have likely had a hard time mentally handling much of what has occurred throughout this year. But at this stage of my life I can accept the general societal disruption (pandemic crisis/stock market crashing/Floyd killing-socialContinue reading ““What Is REALLY Going On?””

The Comfort of ‘BELIEFS’

Beliefs, like relationships, are very complicated things. Many people experience a degree of comfort in ‘shared beliefs.’  Some may even feel a sense of belonging to a recognized and accepted group norm often found in religious or cultural beliefs—where they may feel the welcoming support of their fellow members—welcoming, that is, as long as theyContinue reading “The Comfort of ‘BELIEFS’”
