Being GRACE

What is GRACE? We talk about it like we actually know what it is or what it involves, but how do you know GRACE when you see it in the actions of others or hear it from their whispering lips with heads bowed or gazing skyward? I can make a simple statement aloud, “I liveContinue reading “Being GRACE”

Living with Ambiguity and Uncertainty

This is the last ‘quote-fest’ from James Hollis’s Living an Examined Life—I promise. I think what I noticed from reading and then scrutinizing quotes from this book, is that it inspired me to do a “What was the meaning of MY LIFE?” recapitulation searching for major themes and significant affecters that helped to make meContinue reading “Living with Ambiguity and Uncertainty”

This LIFE Is Ours to Choose

After that Jungian summit a few months ago, I liked best the session by James Hollis, PhD, so I purchased a couple of his latest books: 1) Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey, and 2) Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times. For me, reading Hollis isContinue reading “This LIFE Is Ours to Choose”

“How Einstein Saw the Universe”

Again, just sharing the thoughts of others, particularly from one of my three biggest heroes of humankind (Jung, Fuller, Einstein).  The ‘bold’ statements below could have easily arisen from my own experiences/beliefs. Ecological Consciousness “~How Einstein Saw the Universe~ ‘From the age of twelve I began to suspect authority and distrust teachers. I learned mostlyContinue reading ““How Einstein Saw the Universe””

Now Consider ‘Somebody Versus Nobody’

Dr. Joe continued to elaborate on that ‘something versus nothing’ quantum field concept the next day, so before I move on to another subject here, I think it’s worth viewing his explanation conclusion of how we are personally affected by it. Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE “Most of us embrace theContinue reading “Now Consider ‘Somebody Versus Nobody’”

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 Birth of Empathy

“’For every event in life,’ says the Dalai Lama, ‘there are many different angles.’ There is, perhaps, no greater route to joy than this. Taking a ‘God’s-eye perspective,’ as Archbishop Tutu says, allows for the birth of empathy—the trait that creates joy not only in the one, but in the many. Empathy opens the doorContinue reading “The Birth of Empathy”

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”
