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”

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”

Consulting ‘Doctor ME’

I’m still reviewing the Cope Yoga book, and remembering now how substantive this book could be since Stephen Cope was a practicing psychotherapist applying the Yoga Sutra principles to his working-group associations.  Lots to ponder here.  Very deep read. But as I review the book, I think one of the most prevalent thoughts for meContinue reading “Consulting ‘Doctor ME’”

The Peace of Wild Things

Ecological Consciousness: “When we speak of Nature it is wrong to forget that we are ourselves a part of Nature.” — Henri Matisse Amen.

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”

Common Understandings

I’m big into self-realization and self-actualization, and even had a division in my own company, Foundations of Light, LLC, that was called “True-Self Actualization”—meaning that I conducted classes on teaching others how to recognize and actualize their True Self. I know. These are just words. They mean little if you can’t even get your headContinue reading “Common Understandings”

Wordless TRUTH

From Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness “..the truth cannot be put into words; all we can do is make an effort to render the mystery of life intelligible to our minds.”   – Inayat Khan Normally I would expound on this “mystery of life” type of TRUTH because that is one of my favorite subjects.  Continue reading “Wordless TRUTH”

Such A World

Pretty sure that the Taoist Lao Tzu said, “Those who know, do not say.  Those who say, do not know.”  So clearly he did not know or would not say. There is much about this LIFE that baffles me—so many mysteries, so much unknown. I can acknowledge that there is much that we THINK thatContinue reading “Such A World”

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 education 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”

Selective Viewing

Well, …maybe sometimes it IS what you look at, because that’s also a choice that we make daily. And if you don’t want to completely lose what’s left of your sanity, you might not constantly watch the NEWS shows. But depending on which NEWS channels that you DO watch, is likely how you tend toContinue reading “Selective Viewing”
