This seems the most apt blog for this share: This is the Independent's theater critic's review of Charlie's production. I think he liked it. Sign in to see full entry.

Stupid is a choice, just like fear.

I think stupid choice and action is a condition that comes out of extreme frustration, desperation, and anger: It narrows the view to a kind of apathy towards reason, to seem always to be losing even when, to the best of your knowledge, you are trying to follow the rules. I believe the practical root of it is in a failure of the educational system that actually makes so many kids and adults reject learning itself, deny the validity of knowledge in favor of emotion-based notions of what's real...

Ascension Struggling, striving, yearning towards the light, our passage isn't always seen by those in passing either way. We climb, we pause, we rest... and reach again... And though we dally here and there, or sleep a thousand years, or seem to die, we're rising, always-- rising to the Light... Sign in to see full entry.

All will be well...

I wrote this a year ago, and still, the reminder is useful... Do you ever forget what you believe? I read something today that reminded me to remember. It starts out, "Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room." I agree and I don't, as it goes on to say, "Nothing has changed..." I understand how this is a comfort to many who would, without this reassurance, feel devastated by a death, experiencing it as the greatest, most final loss. But I have to go...

Eden: Abandonment and Loss

In the previous post, I wrote about the 'abandoment of Eden' as the time in which our human intellect outpaced and replaced instinct as our primary means of interacting with the world around us, particularly the physical world. I have suggested that choosing intellect and self-reliance was something to be celebrated, not to be ashamed of. But then, perhaps striding willingly, willfully out of Eden also cost us something. In that time, while we remained animals in form, our minds took us into a... Sign in to see full entry.

It's all in the framing

Tradition has it that Adam and Eve, tempted by Satan-as-serpent, ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and so were cast out of the Paradise that was Eden. Hence, the doctrines of the Fall of Man and Original Sin are justified. I say, they were framed! How a thing is framed in assumptions of what's the truth behind and around that thing determines how it is understood: the truth of the matter is based on those particular assumptions which themselves are strengthened and made...

The Universe Seen In-Flight

Remember the Rainbow Guy who flipped out over a double rainbow? This guy is not that guy... but he is just as thrilled to see a show put on by Nature. You might want to turn the sound down a bit, but appreciate that he's a professional astronomer seeing a rare phenomenon in a unique way, that he didn't expect this treat, that he actually got the pilot to alter a commercial flight plan in order to see it and to share it with everyone else on the flight. It i s a guy named Joe Rao who was a friend... Sign in to see full entry.

New Year's Revolutions

“Most of us need to be reminded that we are good, that we are lovable, that we belong. If we knew just how powerfully our thoughts, words, and actions affected the hearts of those around us, we’d reach out and join hands again and again. Our relationships have the potential to be a sacred refuge, a place of healing, and awakening. With each person we meet, we can learn to look behind the mask and see the one who longs to love and be loved. We can remember to say our blessings out loud.” ―Tara... Sign in to see full entry.

We are stardust, we are music...

The whole of Reality is a great swirl of energies that can be perceived by human beings as light or sound or imagery; experienced as physical, mental/emotional, spiritual. We can feel, believe, and very rarely, know. We have so many means of exploration and discovery: science, meditation... All these words barely touch Reality, are totally inadequate to comprehend or convey the totality. We are so limited in every way, like kindergarteners with an instinct for physics but lacking the conscious... Sign in to see full entry.

Just wondering...

I wonder... Wild animals don't subscribe to religions so they don't celebrate Christmas or other religious events on the calendar. If they do give special consideration to regular events, it would be the solstices of winter and summer, equinoxes of spring and fall. It would return of the rains, or ending of them, and seasons of flood or drought. Phases of the moon, maybe... And do they regard them with wonder, or even awe or respect? Do they take joy or comfort, or perhaps omen from the regular... Sign in to see full entry.
