Letting It Go

“Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”  –Eckhart Tolle Seeing that slogan this morning was a spirit reminder of how much time I’ve lately spent loosening my tight shoulders, smoothing down the rising hairs on the back of my neck, and saying that very thing toContinue reading “Letting It Go”

Miracles Everywhere

Ecological Consciousness “Around us, life bursts forth with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears thatContinue reading “Miracles Everywhere”

Climbing the Mountain of Consciousness

From Resonance Science Foundation: “Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still existsContinue reading “Climbing the Mountain of Consciousness”

Myopic Creatures

“Humans are myopic creatures full of hubris to a degree that is laughable.” –Daniel   Amen to that, brother.  Myself included. This quote was from an email by “Daniel” from Awakentheworld.com about the new film “Samadhi: Part 3”; and it’s a short bit revisited from his encounter with the Seraphim—highest order of angels—next to God.Continue reading “Myopic Creatures”

LIFE Itself IS the Path

“LIFE itself IS the path”  This post’s title is not a new thought or slogan; but while reading a book review, seeing it stated again today struck me as timely for consolidating my own meandering thoughts. Because what are we ALL experiencing in some way right now?   LIFE. This ‘whatever–it-is’ that we are currently enduringContinue reading “LIFE Itself IS the Path”

Only Be In Silence

Quote shared from Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness “You need not go to heaven to see God; nor need you speak loud, as if God were far away; nor need you cry for wings like a dove to fly to Him. Only be in silence, and you will come upon God within yourself.” ~ SaintContinue reading “Only Be In Silence”

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.

I Believe…

Anytime I elaborate on the subject of “beliefs” I know that I run the risk of offending others, but I truly think we all need to better examine WHY we believe what we do at this point in our lives. I myself was born and raised in the Heartland of America—Baptized Lutheran as a babyContinue reading “I Believe…”

Beyond the Illusion of Separateness

“A mystic sees beyond the illusion of separateness into the intricate web of life in which all things are expressions of a single Whole. You can call this web ‘God, the Tao, Nature, the Great Spirit, the Infinite Mystery, Mother or Father,’ (B. Fuller often called it “UNIVERSE.”) but it can be known only asContinue reading “Beyond the Illusion of Separateness”

The Quest for Meaning

As a voracious reader, when the library that I frequent had shut down for the second time due to local Covid 19 outbreaks, it forced me to review some oldies on my own book shelves.  My previous posts on self-realization etc., reminded me that one of my earliest experiences with that subject had to beContinue reading “The Quest for Meaning”

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”
