If you haven't......

If you haven't seen The Legend Of Bagger Vance, see it.

If you've already seen it, see it again.

Chills are running amok over me and I'm melting...melting I tell you!

Hey Mak, I see what you mean about that question sounding like a teacher. #-o I'm just trying to get an exact fix on what you mean. It sounds like you're making, (Makara-ing?) a distinction that may not be there, or at least that is distracting to doing the Work. So I'm going to bug you a little mor...

Gregg Braden says something about how every technology we invent is an example of our own capacity; a manifestation of abilities we already possess. So if one thinks of phones, especially cell phones, they represent the ability to communicate with each other without being there. So it seems to me si...

Re: To be or not to be...

Hamlet's existential question resonates with me. Not in the sense he asked it but rather in the sense of "To be (a person) or not to be (a person)." An example: the work of Byron Katie has been mentioned herein a couple of times of late. I like the work and recently have been prompted to revisit it...

This just in......

This is what came to me while watching the You Tube video, Is Reality An Illusion: You can't let go until you know you're holding on and to what you're holding on. I had some other things to post but I'll end up having to talk you into how great they are when even I know it's just half baked crap. Y...

Remembering Childhood Clarity

Has anyone else experienced memories of their early days when they connect with some spiritually resonant truth? This may seem trivial, but at this point in my life I keep remembering this habit I had as a kid: Any time I came across a steamed up window, either in the house or in the car, I always w...

Yes, think positive.
Love and embrace the negative. [ying]

But, as my mother-in-law used to say, "only if you feel like it".

You bring it on like you are bound by a law or something, which would count as an apology for your behavior... Sounds like all you need is a little work . ;) Nonsense. In the dream, everybody is 'bound', and everybody IS in the dream. The essense of Byron Katies' message is NONDUAL but she sells it...

How is Bob not paying rent a problem? Maybe he's dead. Maybe he's moving. Maybe his landlord sold him the building. Maybe his landlord wants to help while Bob is unemployed. Maybe they've set up a barter agreement. Maybe his landlord will get out of the business and find enlightenment in India. See ...

I can only come at this from my own experience: Every time I felt a dis-ease, or some peace subside, in reaction to what T said, I knew right away (well almost right away) that I was God bashing. Simple. T is God, the chip in my mug is God, insults are God, a drunk's vomit on my shoes are God. I occ...
