Letting It Go

“Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”  –Eckhart Tolle Seeing that slogan this morning was a spirit reminder of how much time I’ve lately spent loosening my tight shoulders, smoothing down the rising hairs on the back of my neck, and saying that very thing toContinue reading “Letting It Go”

An Encounter with Reality

So what is ‘reality’ saying to you today? To me reality is saying ‘spring is finally here and new life is popping up everywhere.’ But if I were in deep meditation, that ‘reality’ might appear quite differently. This is one of the hardest concepts to consider: that what you perceive to be REALITY is simplyContinue reading “An Encounter with Reality”

Miracles Everywhere

Ecological Consciousness “Around us, life bursts forth with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears thatContinue reading “Miracles Everywhere”

Climbing the Mountain of Consciousness

From Resonance Science Foundation: “Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still existsContinue reading “Climbing the Mountain of Consciousness”

You Are the Focal Point

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us Universe… He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few personsContinue reading “You Are the Focal Point”

The Body’s Many Systems

It is SO hard to find ONE picture that covers such an extensive subject as the body’s systems of operation, so this will have to suffice at present. At first I was only going to describe the Endocrine System and how that related to ‘energy work’ (like REIKI) in general; and then the more IContinue reading “The Body’s Many Systems”

The Fractal Spiral

This image is a 2-D depiction of a 3-D fractal spiral—portrayed like a transparent conch shell. For some reason in nature certain living species use this geometric pattern of growth for creating solid shell-like objects, as well as for flower petal or seed distribution, besides other natural examples. I’m looking at this design and thinkingContinue reading “The Fractal Spiral”

Anthropomorphizing the World That We See

Interesting photo above from Amazing Nature site. Besides my Graphic Arts training recognizing that the photo is likely an enhanced composition, my reactive mind immediately attributed human-like actions to the mantis spreading its forearms wide in a kind of Tai Chi pose; and then my logical mind recognized what was happening in my thought processes,Continue reading “Anthropomorphizing the World That We See”

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…”

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”

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”
