Honoring the “VERB”

“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing—a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process— an integral function of the universe.” ~ R. Buckminster Fuller ( I Seem To Be a Verb 1970 )Continue reading “Honoring the “VERB””

Eckhart Tolle on DOING and BEING

Sometimes ‘seeing with new eyes’ requires us to make a serious perspective shift; and I really like what Eckhart Tolle did here with his explanation on “DOING” and “BEING”. (Click his name to reach his Facebook page.) “Eckhart Tolle  Dear friends, Over the years, many people have asked me about finding their purpose in thisContinue reading “Eckhart Tolle on DOING and BEING”

This Aperture’s View Today

While this is not what I had intended to write about today, it must be what is internally pushing hardest to appear here now, so there you go. Similar to Popeye’s favorite slogan, “I writes what I writes.”  It’s like that Alan Watts quote, whatever has the strongest desire to transmit at the time throughContinue reading “This Aperture’s View Today”

Defining Your Identity

“Who ARE you?”   Can you truthfully answer that above question? I’ve identified myself so many different ways during all the phases of my life that I’m not sure how I would have answered that question during each of those growth phases, because to me IDENTITY has more to do with how we think ofContinue reading “Defining Your Identity”

The Things We Tell Ourselves

“Every fragment of self-talk is a little story in the head that goes around, and then you look at reality through the lens of the little story.”  Eckhart Tolle I didn’t title this “The LIES We Tell Ourselves” because sometimes those replaying thought-monologs aren’t really ‘lies,’ but are more likely residues of our optimistic ‘wishfulContinue reading “The Things We Tell Ourselves”

Transformation

To describe ‘transformation’ is like asking a butterfly to write an autobiography tracing its journey from egg larva to crawling caterpillar to the colorful ‘winged-goddess-in-perpetual-motion’ of today. THAT complete structural metamorphosis epitomizes ‘transformation’ in so many ways—biochemically, physically, and behaviorally; because the living being that it once was is suddenly no more, and what itContinue reading “Transformation”

Woundedness

Yes, “wounds”—we all have them—physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual. We all have felt the sting of rejection or humiliation in our lives, or we still have unresolved issues that stem from previous childhood or relationship traumas.  That inner wounding aspect is simply an unpleasant but necessary part of this experience called LIFE.   IfContinue reading “Woundedness”

The Vortex

Tao & Zen  “I seem, like everything else, to be a center, a sort of vortex, at which the whole energy of the universe realizes itself.. Each one of us, not only human beings but every leaf, every weed, exists in the way it does, only because everything else around it does. The individual andContinue reading “The Vortex”

Nature-Speak

The Garden Of Pensiveness “Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer.”  ~ Radhanath Swami ~ Art by Johanna Wright The beauty of language lies in the interpretation of it.  So how do you translate meaning from a bird’s lilting song or the hauntingContinue reading “Nature-Speak”

Whispers

For some time now I’ve been contemplating how to describe my ‘flowers theory’ of how Nature or ‘Spirit through Nature’ communicates to all other life on the planet. For example with flowers in general, there are the ‘geometric aspects of petal distribution’ that I’ve previously mentioned. There are the ‘wide variety of colors’ aspects perContinue reading “Whispers”

Called or Uncalled

This quote was hand-carved over the archway to C. G. Jung’s study: “Called or uncalled: God is present.” Which as Ken James, Ph.D. described during his session of the Jungian summit is to consider that whatever calls us to our supposed ‘purpose in life’ is always around us, ever-present; we just may not notice itContinue reading “Called or Uncalled”

On Personal Change Before World Change

Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness “Changing the world begins with the very personal process of changing ourself, the only place you can begin is where you are, and the only time you can begin is now.” – Gary Zukav WOW, …seeing the Gary Zukav name sent me back to my earliest period of externally expressingContinue reading “On Personal Change Before World Change”
