Commenting on Mia's post...

I decided to copy over that comment here, because... well, it has a place in this blog. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kind of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt. -Robert M. Pirsig, author and philosopher (b. 1928 It has often been said that converts are the worst, the most in-your-face, self-righteous and devout in all the outward forms of any religious or political community. I think Mr. Pirsig is right,... Sign in to see full entry.

The Female Spirit: Song of the Soul, Bread and Roses

Kabu's tribute to the Pioneer Women, and TAPS recent post about the wanton destruction of the Pioneer Woman statue, for its scrap metal value, has reminded me of some songs. Music reaches the heart and soul when, sometimes, words aren't enough. Kabu's poetry is like such music, and TAPS words always reach the heart, in some part because we know her. Reading a news article doesn't do the same. These songs in particular have always moved me, because I hear truth in them.... Sign in to see full entry.

Hearing God, Speaking for God, Channeling God,

(I wrote about a one-act production my son wrote and directed, in my 'Ciel Show' blog. There, I wrote about the event, but there are questions raised in the play that suggest responding in this blog.) Several years ago, I wrote in this blog about thought-forms, and the layers of human consciousness and experience. In this one, I will home in on the human consciousness and experience of God. Human beings, it has been ascertained by the science of the mind, are wired to believe in a higher power,... Sign in to see full entry.

Finding the God Particle

There has been a lot of talk since last summer about the Higgs Boson, the so-called "God Particle." Most of that talk is way beyond my comprehension, I only understand bits and pieces of it, my mind can't contain the whole of this puzzle, nor even connect many of the pieces. Morgon Freeman tried to explain it to me last night, but I was distracted with dinner, and one thing and another... I still don't get it, but I get that others get it. Physicists get it. What I do get is that science is... Sign in to see full entry.

"My Voice Will Go With You"

Milton Erickson was to psychology what Freud was to no-psychology. Erickson's childhood, filled with obstacles and limitations--dyslexia and polio, to name a couple--brought him to a unique understanding of how the human mind works and expresses itself. He developed particular therapeutic techniques that work like magic, to some who simply are unaware of the nuances of how people express outwardly who they are inwardly. He not only saw, he understood the how and why of mental processes. He used... Sign in to see full entry.

Get thee to a therapist!

Everyone is they way they are, and acts as they act for reasons: damn good reasons, to some part of the mind or heart. They probably came into play in childhood, through lessons not even remembered consciously. We all are equipped with a kind of 'auto-pilot' and these reasons, and the beliefs behind them, are the maps that the auto-pilot navigates by. Therapy can help reveal these reasons, and help you to reconsider them as an adult, and find new, better ways to solve the problems, the reasons... Sign in to see full entry.

One lived, one died.

A Pakistani teenage student spoke out for the rights of girls and women to be educated, was shot in the head by a Taliban assassin, and survived. She has recovered enough to leave the hospital, and continue speaking her truth. Another student has died in hospital two weeks after being gang-raped and beaten, and from public indifference in her home country of India, that let her lie in the street unaided for half an hour or more. These two women are the world's newest symbols of the drive for... Sign in to see full entry.

Responding to Annicita

For a long time, I have also run with the notion that I am only responsible for my own learning, my own grasping of lessons and solutions that the Universe offers. It was as I was writing the previous post, that those other words followed the first ones, that no one graduates until the whole class finishes the lesson: No one gets to go home until the whole class gets it right. Sometimes, we make metaphors, or parables, to better see a principle, or grasp how a more numinous thing relates to our... Sign in to see full entry.

It takes a rare courage

to speak truth to power, to choose right over policy, to take responsibility (and possibly blame) over passing the buck. It takes a rare nobility of spirit to work for the good of the many, when that good infringes on one's own personal interests. Instead, we complain, without suggesting solutions; we blame and hand off what power we could have, to some duly elected official, someone more willing to speak out and suffer for it, some God who will kindly, patiently rescue us again from the mess we...
