• Unrooting from the World

    There are three primary emotions (as far as I can tell) that work with each other in rooting consciousness to the illusionary world.  These emotions are anger, fear and desire.  In the diagram below, I’ve depicted these three emotions as a triangle.  When one of these emotions is activated, the other two naturally follow. Fear […] More

  • “Me” & “Mine”

    Licensed from Fotolia © nielshariot - Fotolia.com

    The idea of “self” is a fabrication of the perception of the physical universe.  It’s the ego identity that states, “you are this.”  What “this” is also changes from moment to moment.  At one moment one may identify as an individual body, then we may indentify as something of a family, a group… even a […] More

  • Dealing with Forceful People

    There are times when one encounters very forceful people.  These people demand one see things their way.  There is no other way to perception, except through their doorway of understanding. Recently my wife had an unexpected encounter with Jehovah Witnesses.  It wasn’t supposed to be a surprise indoctrination meeting, but that’s how it turned out. […] More

  • Tao Te Ching: Chapter 1

    The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations […] More

  • Little Minds, Little God

    In Taoism the Tao Te Ching chapter 1 reads, “The name can be named, is not the eternal Name.” This is alluding to the nature of the thing and the concept of the thing. Do you ever wonder why in the Bible, supposedly God directed “his chosen ones” to rape women and kill children?  Or […] More

  • Our Eternal Presence (Soul & Reincarnation)

    What happens when we die?  What an old question and in truth, each of us probably have a different world-view.  For some there is reincarnation, for others, there is a soul that goes to one place or another. Others still may have a nihilistic view that we dissolve back into the source from whence we […] More
