03 Wherever we are is just where we are, physically, intellectually, emotionally, psychologically, politically, religiously, racially, gender-wise, sex-preference-wise etc. If we could be somewhere else, we might well be there, but this is where we are, and we can only be comfortable with people who are no further away, than two or three degrees eitherContinue reading “March 01, 2021”
02 Finding what resonates with us and spending time with it opens the way to balance and harmony. Resonance is the bond uniting us with the mystery at the heart of life and being. We know it when it happens, but we cannot predict when it is going to happen, or make it happen byContinue reading “February 28, 2021”
03 Once we adjust and adapt to our life, everything is perfect. Until then, we are at war with our life, hell-bent on pounding it into a shape that is pleasing to us, pushing, forcing, striving, commanding, compelling, contending with forces quite beyond us, determined to have our way with our life or die trying.Continue reading “February 27, 2021”

03 Getting what we want and having our way take us straight to the heart of the Wasteland. Everybody knows what they want: Their Way! And everybody thinks it is all someone else’s fault that things never work out for them. Things never work out because they want the wrong things, and try to acquireContinue reading “February 22, 2021”
04 We like to think George Bailey and Jefferson Smith (The Mr. Smith who goes to Washington) are Everyman, and that Donald Trump and his people are not. The assumption is not valid.
