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 […]

Waking up in the physical body

Waking up in the physical body


Dearest readers, I have been wondering how the ascension process pertains to the feminine and to our choice to incarnate on Earth in a physical body. People who publish articles and videos on-line about the ascension process explain that Gaia or our home planet Earth has consciously decided to “ascend”. This means that the planet […]

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 […]

Where is humanity going? The end of human slavery and the ascension process


Dearest readers, Most people realize that something is changing on our planet. Everyone feels the shifts in energy, though most do not understand where these shifts in energy originate. Some people are worried, feel their world is falling apart and don’t realize that this is a good thing. Others are thrilled that humanity is finally […]

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 […]

The Stranger & the mirror: How looking inward changes our cultural paradigm towards outsiders


Dear readers, I recently reread Albert Camus’ iconic novel, The Stranger. It struck me as I was reading that Meursault’s detached personality and precise, yet objective truthfulness would probably place him somewhere on the autism spectrum today. As most people know, the bizarre cultural mindset of the time in which the novel is set (1950’s […]

There is only one disease


    Dear readers, Humanity is undergoing a massive shift. The way we think about ourselves and our relationship to the world is changing in a way that has never before been seen in modern human history. Our technologies will take a giant leap forward once we collectively and individually realize that our place on […]

Calm and peaceful in turbulent times


  Dear readers, Spirituality and reality (and the science of  physics) are inextricably intertwined. The exhortation to “love one’s enemies” is one of Jesus’s teachings that is both intriguing and inspiring to me. In this brief statement lies incredibly difficult challenges that defy the nature of reality and our beliefs about what is real and […]

I can’t complain: how pop psychology keeps reality at bay & how to create true happiness


Dear readers, Being human is hard. We are complex beings with complex emotions. Happiness or contentment are often elusive in a world fraught with difficulties, including solitude, a struggle to survive financially and raise a family, and the desires to be truly free and creative, to be healthy, and to be part of a community […]

Happiness & health: making choices between reality & illusion


    Dear readers, Many people look for recipes and formulas from outside of self in order to pursue that elusive goal our society claims is necessary for happiness. Staying or appearing young, vital, and energetic becomes a goal when these qualities should be the effortless byproducts of leading a life in harmony with self […]

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 […]

Turn on the light!


Hello dear reader, Sometimes the world seems to be filled with darkness, fear, chaos, and corruption. We look around ourselves, and our news reports are often grim. It would seem that we cannot trust our fellow man. People are constantly trying to take advantage of one another or harm others for no apparently good reason. […]

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 […]

A spiritual view on the delicate topic of abortion


Hello readers, In America, there seems to be a never ending debate on abortion. Is it a moral debate? Philosophical? Is it about controlling women’s bodies? Is is about taking control of who controls our population? The reason I want to write about this topic is that I feel that many of the most important […]

The importance of sharing our talents


Hello readers, This blog is about the nature of reality. What we are taught as children often forms lifelong beliefs which condition us into either a life of creativity and joy or a life of toil dominated consciously or unconsciously by fear and anxiety. In America, we are taught to think about personal power in a certain […]

Waking up: what tomorrow will bring


Hello readers, Many people want to know why we are here on Earth. What is our purpose? I have been trying to figure this out for many years. Over the years, gradually, like the opening of a flower bud, small bits of realization have come to me. When I was in my early twenties as […]

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 […]

Sweating bullets: how the powerful change our minds


  Hello readers, Noam Chomsky, celebrated linguist and tireless defender of democracy and the freedom of information, tells us that we can find the truth in the press…but we will have to patiently seek it out, make an effort to look for it. Awareness and becoming aware is a process. When, for example, I started […]

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 […]
