Called or Uncalled

This quote was hand-carved over the archway to C. G. Jung’s study: “Called or uncalled: God is present.” Which as Ken James, Ph.D. described during his session of the Jungian summit is to consider that whatever calls us to our supposed ‘purpose in life’ is always around us, ever-present; we just may not notice itContinue reading “Called or Uncalled”

The Jungian Online Conference 2021

Hm-m-m, maybe I am more Jungian than I realized. I’m currently listening to James Hollis, Ph.D., and he is already talking about most of what I write in this blog…about Finding Your Truth: determining who we are, what we stand for, and WHY we believe that we are here at this time, and how weContinue reading “The Jungian Online Conference 2021”

Holographic Snapshots of the Whole

If you look closely at the image above, you can see a graphic metaphor for LIFE as we know it. That blurry whitish background is the daisy itself more clearly focused in the lesser dew-drop versions of it on the spider web. As each droplet reflects the object that it mimics, it does so withinContinue reading “Holographic Snapshots of the Whole”

Examining the Roles That We Play

Eckhart Tolle “Authentic human interactions become impossible when you lose yourself in a role.” – Eckhart Tolle Over the course of our lives we learn many informative techniques to advance our personal lives in one direction or another. We may even choose a role in life often associated with our strong need for personal satisfactionContinue reading “Examining the Roles That We Play”

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”

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”

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’”

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.

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”
