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?”

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”

Brigit Anna McNeill’s Prose on “Winter”

“We are approaching the threshold of winter. Life is being drawn into the earth, painlessly descending down into the very heart of herself. And we as natural human animals are being called to do the same, the pull to descend into our bodies, into sleep, darkness and the depths of our own inner caves continuallyContinue reading “Brigit Anna McNeill’s Prose on “Winter””

Unified Energy Consciousness

I’ve been into ‘energy work’ for over two decades now, and I can say that it has changed my life for the better in many ways. From the most basic concept that we are far more than merely physical beings, to the consideration that we are ‘individual waves in an immeasurable ocean of energy’ perContinue reading “Unified Energy Consciousness”

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 educational 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”

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”

Winds of Change

There have been so many unusual energy influences lately that it’s often hard to distinguish WHAT IS WHAT among them. There are changes happening to our overall culture, our group consciousness, and our social awareness in general, just as there is resistance to ALL of those contrasting changes culminating in broad-scale conflicts throughout the globe.Continue reading “Winds of Change”
