It’s harder for me to hear, though
my hearing is perfectly fine.
Words, speech, rhetoric, proclaimed in our
Homes, schools, churches, media and lives,
Filled with anger, pain and rage,
Endless debating, name calling,
Attacking, yelling, shouting,
Drama and diatribes. Continue reading “Harder to Hear”
Time Stood Still
Friends tell me we met more than half a million minutes ago.
But I noticed, before a few seconds had hardly passed,
That time was standing still.
In its place, a merged continuum of
Tender touches, love, kindnesses and gifts of presence
All indescribably nuanced, existed. Continue reading “Time Stood Still”
I learned two new Yiddish words today–schlemiel and schlimazel. The schlemiel is the one who is always spilling the soup, the screw-ups if you will, while the schlimazel is the one that the soup always falls on. Our country has its fair share of schlemiels in government, industry and media who are constantly screwing up and making schlimazels of us all! They spill the soup and it lands on us. The ones that come immediately to my mind are big oil, talk radio, Apple and Microsoft, Wal-Mart and education. Continue reading “Schlimazels of us all!”
Winning in this 3-D world keeps us here. The more we win, the more enmeshed we become to a perfectly rigged system designed to more tightly hold us in place. You cannot beat this system–but you can transend it.
This Game of Thrones world is commonly seen as an epic battle of good versus evil where the good people are supposed to actively work to overthrow the evil ones. In this worldview, there are three basic classes of people. The first seeks to rule and control by using any and all means available to obtain absolute power. The second class resists these ruthless people. They seek a more enlightened and egalitarian society by upholding societal traditions through the rule of law. The last are those who try and stay out of the fight by letting whoever is in charge at the moment have their way. I would propose a fourth class of people–those who see the truth of this world, expose its darkness to others, then learn to transcend it all through spiritual ascension.

Before we descended to this earth plane, we carefully selected a body for our vessel. It was specially created to meet the needs of our unique journey. It is genetically wired, DNA activated, and specially created to be the perfect size, strength, and health for our life purpose. In our daily awareness, we may be very unhappy with our body; but, in our awakened state, we understand why we are designed the way we are–complete with certain built-in diseases and tendencies. What we see in the mirror was designed to provide us with both physical challenges that are appropriate for us as well as challenges and conditions that require our humble acceptance. The creator is well able to create a perfect body–but the perfection of form is not the point or purpose of the human vessel. Our body is perfectly-imperfect. Continue reading “It's Supposed to be This Way!”
“Hello Child, do you know where you are?”
I was looking into the face of this most beautiful…man, woman, child—I cannot say exactly who or what it was because it was all these things. It was glorious, loving, and warm. I feel its love. I can tell this person anything.
“You can call me ‘The Warmth,’ if you want to,” it said. Continue reading “The Postscript”
It was a cold winter’s Christmas Eve night in Abilene, Texas. I was eleven or twelve years old, and there was something I wanted very badly for Christmas. I had told Santa, my parents, and anyone who would listen, what I most wanted—a pair of walkie-talkies! Honestly, I can’t remember ever wanting anything more as a child than walkie-talkies. I could just envision myself holding the little-transistorized boxes with the long metal whip-like antennas and talking to all my friends. Well, not all my friends—only those like me who had the walkie-talkies! In my mind, the first thing I would do is run across the street and knock on Jimmy Grant’s door. He wanted them too– and we’d both walk down the street talking to each other and ask, “Hey, is anybody out there listening Continue reading “Hello, is anyone listening?”
Tomorrow our nation will inaugurate its 45th president–Donald Trump. I’m really disappointed that our nation has given this man our highest honor. He is the epitome of plutocracy and corptocracy–having installed multimillionaires to lead the major departments of government based less upon their legitimate qualifications than their outspoken opposition to the rule of law related to that department. His cabinet has known racist and homophobic ties and many have faced questionable legal scandals in the businesses that they operate. Trump has not released his tax statements, nor has he clearly divested himself from his business holdings. He has placed an Oil Tycoon as Secretary of State–which signals that oil and energy are the top priorities of our nation.
Though Donald has yet to pass a single law, here is what I expect in the next four years under his presidency: Continue reading “I protest!”
Source, or the vastness that encompasses all energetic and non-energetic things, is not static but always in process. IT creates an infinity of energetic forms by the redistribution and redesign of its infinite self. One of the ways IT accomplishes this is through the creation of Souls. The soul is a body–a capsule if you will–that contains a special form of energy given it by Source. It is Source energy that has been partitioned for a special purpose–to grow, expand, and provide Source with a specialized and unique way of experiencing itself. Soul energy is the very likeness of Source, except in a diluted state, that has been partitioned for a special purpose–to grow, expand, and provide Source with a specialized and unique way of experiencing itself. As a specialized body of source energy, the soul is subtle and extremely powerful. Continue reading “What is a Soul?”
