Wabi Sabi for football

Came across a new esthetic ideal the other day, which was a shocker to me, since I’ve been a beauty hound since I was a kid. An esthetician of the non-hairstylist type. The only thing I like better than beauty is happiness…and since to me they’re synonymous—voila! The name for this beauty, or this Japanese […]

A bad secret

But no one should shatter the old words, unless he finds the new word that is a firm rampart against the limitless and grasps more life in it than in the old word. ~ Carl Jung This is the kind of bad secret that it’s not a good idea for most people to know, or […]

What other people think

Presently going through another psychological healing process, as the latest go-around in my everquest to fix myself (or pay others to fix me). One of the really great things about it is that it’s only three sessions, based on deprogramming the amygdala. With Ray Lewis: After the second session I had the most amazing experience: […]

At the left hand of God

I’ve been thinking lately (I know, I know, but can’t help myself) about that dream I had that my life’s purpose is to help support the feminine energy. What does that entail? I think I need to help raise the Goddess back to her throne at the left hand of God. The zeitgeist of our […]

The purpose of my life

Had a dream the other night in which I was told the purpose for my existence. Man, that was amazing and wonderful. I woke up in the dream sobbing with relief and joy to finally know the answer to my question, what is the reason for me to be here? Of course, like everyone else, […]

The Church of Absolute Unity

I was in Scientology for about a year, in the seventies of the last century. Don’t want to say anything bad about them or they’ll send their insane killer robots after me, so I won’t. But one thing that experience did was give me was the idea to invent my own religion. So I did. Called […]

Autumn Hearts

If you ask me, ‘Do you believe in God?’ forgive me if I answer, ‘Does God believe in me?’ Susan Sarandon may not have the answer to those questions, but I’ll believe her anyway. It all boils down to the dichotomy again. Yes or no. There is only one thing: Choice. The difference between yes […]

Gratitude

If I’d found a nickle under every new leaf I’ve turned over in my lifetime, I’d be a nickleaire, bigtime. But I’ve decided its time to track down another one o’ them pesky leaves and give it a flip. Whoops! What do we find here, under this green bit of spring?   Gratitude  I’m sick […]

God

Met God the other day. First time in my life I can say that. Always been kind of a spiritual-leaning type, but more of a looker than a finder. It was in a dream, so not sure it counts, though dreaming is big in the spirituality scene. I tell you what though, meeting God is […]

Prayer

Never been much of a pray-er. Maybe because I never knew who I was praying to, and felt kind of sheephish down on my knees, sending tentative words up to who knows where. Like a poser. A spiritual wise guy: How much you gimme for God? Oh sure, there were lots of people who tried […]

Hug the world

Hugged a dolphin the other day. One of the most amazing feelings I’ve ever had. Don’t really know how to describe it, except it felt like I was hugging the whole world. For those few seconds I was blissfully happy, or maybe content is the word. I felt belonged. Squeak-squeak-eepy-eadle-peep! LWIII

The Way of the Adventurer

In travels almongst the mystic dells and hills of spiritual sources, one often comes across the phrase “the Way of the Warrior”, which describes the curious or questing soul as one on a path to victory. Only one spiritual path I’ve looked into called the spiritual quest the Way of the Adventurer, someone working not […]

What works

Bad news gang, unless you like sinking feelings. What works is work. Work works: goofing off, not so much. I just read an explanation of the Hawaiian word, Pono. What it means is that “effectiveness is the measure of truth”. By that measure the only truth I know is hard work. My definition of work is […]

The creator

Sometimes I wonder about the creator of the universe. Sometimes I think it’s me. The reason I think that is because the universe I experience is almost completely created by me. Of course there’s a whole bunch of doo-dads out beyond me, including me, that I had nothing to do with creating, but my experience […]

As I see it

  It’s all about the neurology. All these many generations of humanity we’ve been hankerin’ after the One Truth for everyone. So far we haven’t had much luck. We never knew why before, other than there were always large groups stubbornly resisting what everybody else knew to be true. Seemed for some strange reason the […]

X-Rays from Mars

partially encoded transmission…. “I have no ego,” said she modestly. Ever since I found out exactly who I am (a children’s writer, during NaNo), my friends are recoiling in horror. I’m finally saying what I think most of the time. A real nightmare for everybody except me, who is no slave to approval anymore, but […]

What’s up with Hell?

This whole Hell thing is starting to get me down. Not so much that I’m worried about going there, since I’ve noticed God is not insane, but that it’s considered so darn normal. “Hell, yeah, la de da, that’s normal, dead people burning for all eternity. Makes perfect sense.” Is it only me and my […]

If God was a woman

If. Boy, that was a silly title. God is a woman or I’m not, I’m not…um…what am I? We’ll leave that question for later. But if God wasn’t a woman, how could She create She? I create a lot of stuff myself – if arranging things that were provided to me in advance can be […]

Worship

I think I broke my worship bone. I just don’t get it. Maybe I don’t understand what worship is. A lot of people seem to like worshipping. I’m just grateful as all getout, and that’s about as far as I go in that direction. Awe, certainly, but I’m in awe at everything, so that’s no […]
