Inconvenient Truth

“…TRUTH, for most people, is a secondary consideration.”  Bertrand Russell This was an easier graphic to grab than the one I preferred, but I can’t make a stationary image produce the same effect as an animated GIF in motion. On this first day of the year that we all hope is far better than theContinue reading “Inconvenient Truth”

Here’s looking at YOU, the Universe

Alan Watts was one of those enigmatic, philosophical characters who promoted increased spiritual awareness during the 1960’s and 70’s.  He was best known for being: “…a British writer and speaker known for interpreting and popularizing Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism for a Western audience.”  (Wiki) Before I get into my comments on him, here’s another memorialContinue reading “Here’s looking at YOU, the Universe”

Are We Our Stories?

Disclaimer: Over the years for me, Deepak Chopra has been a strong influence. I think the first I read from him was long ago with The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success; and then for awhile afterwards, I read nearly everything that he wrote. At present, I’ve tried to read Chopra’s latest book, Metahuman, and IContinue reading “Are We Our Stories?”

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 Pragmatist

A little discussion yesterday with my mate led me to this personal realization after hearing extremely sensible words coming out of my mouth: “OMG!  I think I’ve become a pragmatist. How did that happen?  And WHEN did it happen?” I’ve always been an idealist, an optimist, an earlier-in-life romantic even. Not many others who haveContinue reading “The Pragmatist”

“It Is Not the Answer…”

“It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.” ~ Eugene Ionescowww.earthschoolharmony.com For me personally and for ALL of us world-wide, this 2020 year is BEYOND strange. I’ve certainly had a bunch of questions over many aspects of our shared experience, but I know that there aren’t believable answers for them, so I justContinue reading ““It Is Not the Answer…””

Walking the ‘Tunnel of Grace’

I was listening to Kaypache on YouTube and saw a Caroline Myss video from May 2020 talking about “The World Is Going to Start Over Again”.  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWAc1bRwSHg )  I’ve been a Caroline Myss fan for decades and hadn’t heard this one, so listened.  She talked about her experiences at that time with the Covid-19 pandemicContinue reading “Walking the ‘Tunnel of Grace’”

REBIRTH

“True initiation is a response to an inner calling; it requires that you face personal challenges heroically, and to experience a genuine rebirth into a new way of being.”  Alberto Villoldo, PhD Ask any screaming newborn just forcefully squeezed out of its mother’s womb like toothpaste from a crumpled tube, how pleasant birthing can be.Continue reading “REBIRTH”

The Invisible WEB OF LIFE

A couple posts ago I mentioned that we tended to see what we wanted to see, and that how we perceive the world around us depends on that perspective. I also mentioned that I had neighbors who despite our political differences, I knew would have my back if I needed them to be there; andContinue reading “The Invisible WEB OF LIFE”

“What Is REALLY Going On?”

In many ways it’s been a rough year for ALL of us; and were I into ‘standard thinking’ modes, I’d have likely had a hard time mentally handling much of what has occurred throughout this year. But at this stage of my life I can accept the general societal disruption (pandemic crisis/stock market crashing/Floyd killing-socialContinue reading ““What Is REALLY Going On?””
