12 Wishes for Christmas - #11

#11 - May an expansion of consciousness free us all from illusions of grandeur, control, and unnatural majesty. May we learn to recognize when the king has no clothes... when the grandeur is false, the control is constricting, and the majesty is a foolish waste... and realize that we seek only to...

Media, Truth, and Perception

There have been a number of people asking me what sources I use for my information. The latest was Janet, so I decided to answer in a post. When it comes to television, I watch it rarely, maybe once every couple of months. When I do, I watch Link TV with Amy Goodman. The rest of TV has been a wa...

Act One - Worries about the Donald

I was in bed and almost asleep at 10:26 last night when my iPad began going off. A student wrote: “OMG heaven help us!! This election is nailbiting!! WHAT did the Robes see in Trump over a woman (Clinton)?” I wrote back: “LOL, it isn’t about Trump vs. Clinton. It is about consciousness. It i...

9 Guidelines to Use When Navigating the Alternative News

This started out as a reply to Tom Van Berckel, but became an entire blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Tom! And thanks for the compliment. You aren't the only one who gets confused when trying to figure out what to believe or who to listen to when wading through the ocean of alternative news. In...

My dear uncle,

It’s been many, many years since I’ve written a love letter, but I can no longer remain quiet about how I have loved you for so many years and my grief at the recent news about you! How proud I always felt to be with you. I hold you in a special place in my heart and feel so strongly about you th...

We Are Not All One

We are not all one! We are all different in weirdly wonderful and unique ways. Think of it like this. The world is a giant barrel of flour. The flour is used to make bread dough. Some of the dough is made into loaves to become toast or sandwiches, some into cinnamon rolls or dumplings, and some i...

Community vs. Connection

There is a great deal of talk among New Age people about ‘community.’ I have a little experience with this idea of creating a place where like-minded people could come together and live in peace and harmony. I've been involved in several attempts to establish community. What I learned from each a...

The Real Problems

We don’t have a population problem, we have a problem of arrested human development. We don’t have a political problem, we have a leadership problem. We don’t have an agricultural problem, we have a disconnection from Nature. We don’t have a financial problem, we have a lack of survival skills...

Thought for Monday, 5/5/2014

I used to wonder why the German people didn't do something about Hitler. I often asked myself, "How could they have gone along with what he was doing? Couldn't they see what he was doing?" Now I know. They didn't know what was going on. They didn't get any truthful news or perspectives on what w...

Getting Off the Financial Grid - #1

The situation goes something like this...  Business aggressively markets a grossly romanticized version of everything - your hair, your skin, your weight, your clothes and shoes, your cars, houses, sex life, your vacation, your career, etc. People then chase after this romanticized illusion belie...
