On Money and Freedom

On Money and Freedom


Dearest readers, Many people say that money is but a form of energy. That everything is energy. Yet in our current paradigm, money seems to rule our lives and holds for many the energy of fear. Fear of not having enough, fear of not being able to live out our true talents, desires, dreams. Money […]

Humanity in transition: visions of our future


Dearest readers, My faith in humanity is very strong, even though I am a very solitary person by nature. I feel that humanity has deviated from its natural state.  Some say that we collectively chose to experience a state of forgetfulness, victimhood, or to be humbled through suffering because it was an experience we all […]

Creating realities that support joy


Dearest readers, I was just thinking about how we, as human parents, try to extend childhood for our kids. It wasn’t always like this, and in many places it still isn’t. Children work and are even slaves in many places around the world today. But the point I would like to make is this: the […]

Doing, doing, done: A new era of BEING begins


  Hello dear readers, Can you imagine living in a world where you don’t need an alarm clock to wake up in the morning? Where when you meet someone new they don’t ask you what you do but rather who you are? A world where you don’t have to go to work, but you still […]

Coming Soon: The Fall of Big Pharma & the Rise of Natural, Intuitive, Self Healing


Dear readers, We live in a very special time, and we are playing an important role in an unprecedented rise in consciousness of the human species. This is a momentous event. Humanity has lived in brutality, darkness, and chaos for its entire short history, with brief moments of beauty and small pockets of evolved awareness along […]

Vulnerability and the road to world peace


Dear readers, People say that the United States is the most powerful nation in the world. Sometimes I feel as if the U.S. is holding back world peace. Being powerful and fearing vulnerability are a tricky and dangerous combination. The United States has over 700 military bases overseas. The rest of the countries of the […]

Whispers from an awakening planet


Dear readers, Amidst reports of foiled terrorist plots or attacks, of mass refugee migrations fleeing civil war in Syria, Libya, or Somalia, inner city murder rates in Chicago skyrocketing, there are also many stories, small and large, which awaken hope in a more compassionate future for humanity here on Earth. The future of the world […]

A letter to Hillary Clinton from a Bernie Sanders supporter


Dear Hillary, It seems to me that you are at a crossroads. I have been diligently researching your past for clues to your character and for information about your past choices. From the lovely expurgated biographies narrated by the seductive voice of Morgan Freeman to less flattering versions which evoke a tragic path reminiscent of […]

On true creativity: the American Dream has been holding us back


Hello readers, When Donald Trump talks about “making America great again”, he lacks quite a bit of imagination. He is speaking to angry and frustrated citizens who rightly, however dimly, are somewhat aware that the system is not working for them anymore. I personally do not believe that the European colonial culture that seeded itself […]

Helping people stimulates the economy


Hello readers, The other day, I was watching Real Time with Bill Maher as he was interviewing Bernie Sanders. During this interview, Bernie said something extraordinary, which I have not heard him say during any other interview…and I have listened to a great many of his rally speeches and interviews. I am paraphrasing, but Bernie said […]

Merci, les travailleurs de France!


  Hello readers, When I lived in France, I enjoyed a simple lifestyle, spending most of my time doing the kind of work I wanted to do. I made about half what I make today in the U.S. (which is not very much), but in France I was able to save money, take vacations, and […]

The pain of being perpetually silenced


    Hello readers, The mentality created by the industrial revolution was one that deified science and materialism. The pragmatic evolution of ideas and ideals re-centered the human and cultural experiences of men and women away from God, spirituality, and Nature. No longer subservient to a higher power of some kind, humans replaced those fundamental alliances […]

Authentic


Hello readers, I haven’t posted anything recently. My dog accidentally discovered an orphaned kitten in our backyard a little over two weeks ago, and it is amazing how such a small creature can need so much time and care! I like to think about what is going on in the world and about how people […]

Who has the power to make America great again? You do!


Dear readers, You and I have great and powerful voices. Our voices are a bit rusty from disuse. But we are preparing to speak again, and as we do, the change we will see and the energy and passion this creates, will be inspiring. Today, we are beginning to see this beautiful outgrowth from the negative […]

Why are bad presidential candidates like bad boyfriends, and what makes them attractive?


Hello readers, Have you ever been drawn like a magnet to a person because of their charm or charisma, only to learn later that the person is self-centered, emotionally or physically abusive, vindictive, and possibly dangerous? Did you ever wonder why so many of us (including myself at some points in my life) find or […]

Who has the most to gain from a Bernie Sanders victory?


Hello readers, It seems obvious to me that most Americans who are employees, which is the majority of Americans, would gain a vastly improved quality of life under the leadership of Bernie Sanders.  And it is exciting to think that perhaps Americans will finally stop being so passive and begin once again to speak up […]

Yin and Yang: the political divide in America


  Hello readers, In America, we live in an either/or world. Either you are an individualist (a Republican or Libertarian) or you are a progressive socialist (Democrat). Did it ever occur to anyone that a person who is concerned about social issues may also be an independent, self-responsible person? And how about those Americans who […]

Socially responsible: How using social media can bypass Congress and bring us direct democracy


Hello readers, I really admire President Obama. He is an incredibly intelligent, educated, and caring man. I am proud of what he has accomplished in this country despite huge obstacles: blanket opposition by Republican representatives to just about every measure he has attempted to introduce under his presidency. President Obama has remained committed to a “working […]

France vs. USA: dare to complain!


Hello readers, Over the last 40 or so years, ordinary working Americans have progressively lost many of our freedoms and most of our rights. Most of us are worried about the future. Most of us worry about money, the environment, about whether or not we can ever afford to stop working and pursue our dreams. […]

Guess what? Universal health care is better and cheaper!


Hello readers, Many politicians and business leaders in America have spread untruths regarding universal healthcare to Americans for many years. They want the average American citizen to believe that they would pay higher taxes if the government were to run our healthcare system. Bernie Sanders (Democrat) is the only candidate running today who supports the […]
