The funk

For the most part I am a very happy guy.  You have probably picked-up from these blogs that I like to live from possible and see the positive in all things.  True, and true, but last night I fell into a funk.  My beloved said something to me which was both true and very loving, but …

Stop Thinking!

No, don’t stop thinking forever, just stop thinking about the wrong things.  This weekend I was stuck in miles and miles and miles of traffic; hours worth.  I found myself getting quite perturbed, as you might imagine.  What saved me from becoming a two minute segment on the TV news about road rage was my realization …

Where there is no trail

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote; Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail.”  Ponder that for a moment or two, what does it mean to you?   For me it means recognizing that I may not be everyones cup of tea, heck I am certain …

You are not there yet!

No matter how evolved your concept of the Universe, God, First Cause, All There Is, you have not even begun to grasp the full extent of its power and love of you. A five year old might think they have a total understanding of how the world works, and for that five year old, this …

Who is our Tribe?

Tribes are not limited to Native Americans, we all have Tribes of some kind.  These Tribes shift, blend, disappear then re-emerge as needed.  As events unfold in and around our lives we find ourselves identifying with one Tribe or another.  This  may a Tribe which is cheering for a High School football team, or, like …

What Have We Learned?

There is nothing which happens that does not have a positive lesson somewhere within.  This week in America is no exception.  So what have we learned?  We have hopefully learned that the so-called experts in politics know little, if anything, more than you and I know.  Time has moved on and they are living in …

Peace

 No matter how your favorite candidate or proposition did on the ballot yesterday it is time for peace.  Peace which comes from knowing that no matter what our thoughts are, we are simply one beautiful part of a wonderful process.  Friends of mine visited Cuba recently and were met with stunned expressions as they explained …
