Personal power

Life: My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. Perspective: If you don’t like something, change it.

“A Frequency No Intellect Can Unlock”

“There is not a single Messiah, Prophet or Savior in this era that will come and balance these elitist forces. In our time, it is a co-mingling of cosmic, extraterrestrial and human forces because the stakes are too important, the macro-environment too complicated, and the histories too muddled for any one person to step forward and help humanity leap over the hurdles that lie...

Mind is everything; mind is nothing

Mind is everything; mind is nothing.  Mind creates time and space, mind contains a billion galaxies, mind lifts a spoon of oatmeal to its mouth at breakfast.  Mind is life and death, God and devil, you and I; mind stands the tops of the mountain; mind cries for its mother’s breast. Mind pulls the universe out of a top hat, bows to its own applause, and walks off the stage,...

HIDING

HIDING is a way of staying alive. Hiding is a way of holding ourselves until we are ready to come into the light. Even hiding the truth from ourselves can be a way to come to what we need in our own necessary time. Hiding is one of the brilliant and virtuoso practices of almost every part of the natural world: the protective quiet of an icy northern landscape, the held bud of a future summer...

Bodhisattva’s Vow 2.0

Our own personal happiness is impossible and hollow unless we are also in service to others. With this in mind, I propose an extension of the Bodhisattva’s Vow. The Bodhisattva Vow: “My own personal quest for illumination is incomplete, and my own personal enlightenment is meaningless, unless I am also in some specific way devoted to easing the suffering of others.” I suggest we...

On a Day When the Wind is Perfect

On a Day When the Wind is Perfect

On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty. today is such a day. My eyes are like the sun that makes promises; the promise of life that it always keeps each morning. The living heart gives to us as does that luminous sphere, both caress the earth with great tenderness. There is a breeze that can enter the soul. This love I know plays a drum. ...
