Believing What We Want to Believe

“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes that see reality” ~ Nikos Kazantzakis      Earthschool Harmony *** Reality is often a reflection of our inner beliefs about the world around us: Beliefs about ourselves—like WHO we are, WHY we are here—beliefs about our perceived tasks in the world—including our own sense of purposeContinue reading “Believing What We Want to Believe”

Chaos and Cosmos

I’m not certain that what I say on this subject will be of any value to others, but I should at least attempt to clarify what I’ve been personally feeling lately, as I assume that if I am experiencing these feelings, then it’s likely that others are as well. Let’s look at Jung’s statement above”Continue reading “Chaos and Cosmos”

‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience

Again, I’m just sharing a good source of info and inspiration. The online company “Sounds True,” founded by Tami Simon, is a great source of both. Here she is interviewing one of my favorite Jungians: Dr. James Hollis, whose focus is always on finding more ‘meaning’ in our lives. It is well worth listening to,Continue reading “‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience”

“Context is Everything”

Just ran across an old Alan Watts audio called “Context is Everything” (Excerpt from the audio program and companion book, Just So: Money, Materialism, and the Ineffable, Intelligent Universe by Alan Watts – Context is Everything)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKm-oQVcm74 I mention it here because it further substantiates something I’d earlier written about in this blog on theContinue reading ““Context is Everything””

“You’re Not Crazy, You Are Psychic”

I do admit that seeing this title statement in my email box did make me chuckle. And after watching the latest horrors on the news this morning, that was a GOOD thing. Seriously, how do you know if you are “crazy” or not in a world that is itself far from being sane? Even theContinue reading ““You’re Not Crazy, You Are Psychic””

Expecting Sanity in an Insane World

Sometimes I do find humor in my own ‘arrogant humanness.’ In fact if I couldn’t laugh at myself and how my hamster-wheel mind turns, then there would be little to laugh about in this world. My closest group of friends, like the rest of the world around us, is undergoing their own set of personalContinue reading “Expecting Sanity in an Insane World”

Becoming the VOID

Saw the image above along with the title: “Black cat climbs into bed and basically becomes the VOID,” and thought, ‘Yes, we perceive the VOID as intense blackness—a nothingness that we cannot comprehend, but is it nothingness or are we incapable of defining the something that it truly is?’ My guess is the latter becauseContinue reading “Becoming the VOID”

Indomitable Spirit

“Here’s to the bridge-builders, the hand-holders, the light-bringers, those extraordinary souls wrapped in ordinary lives who quietly weave threads of humanity into an inhumane world. They are the unsung heroes in a world at war with itself. They are the whisperers of hope that peace is possible. Look for them in this present darkness. LightContinue reading “Indomitable Spirit”

The Door

Couldn’t choose between the two images, as they both reflect my present thoughts, so will post them both together because I think that’s where they need to be considered—together. I’ve previously elaborated on the KNOWN and the UNKNOWN (“Understanding Nothing”), so there is no point in trying to squeeze more from that thought; but whenContinue reading “The Door”

“I’m Fine”

Saw this T-shirt ad and laughed, remembering a time well over a decade ago when I was saying the same thing to anyone who asked: “Yeah, no,… I’m fine.” “Yeah, no…” just by itself, said it all.  Inner conflict reigned supreme in me, and I was really struggling at the time. My guess is IContinue reading ““I’m Fine””

Creating Our Personal Reality

Haven’t mentioned Dr. Joe in awhile, so since today he seems to be touching on the REALITY subject that I’ve been recently exploring, I’ll list him as a good source of theoretical discourse and experiential training in what it takes to shift your thinking, your energy, and then your life to what you truly wantContinue reading “Creating Our Personal Reality”

Reinventing Ourselves

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”  ~ Hal Borland ~ Art by Mark Duffin (shared from   ॐ Simplicity, Elegance and Grace of Nature ॐ ) *** As one who has spent decades reinventing myself career-wise or at leastContinue reading “Reinventing Ourselves”
