Viewing From Zen

We can be seeing things clearly and still take a fall. The objective is to remain in a place where we can increase our odds of success and not in an imaginary place that will supposedly guarantee success. Note: There is nowhere in the universe that guarantees success. No matter how anyone may want to... Continue Reading →

Presence as present

I know, it's a strange title for a blog. But accurate. I gave this talk about presence for a Buddhist class a few months ago and the subject of how people receive presence came up. Well, my answer is "I don't actually know." But I do have some observations about being present for others. So... Continue Reading →

The Tao of Intuition and Knowing

Geri Larkin once told me that for every single situation that I would come upon, there would be an Apposite move that wouldn't be driven by logical thinking.

Belief and Knowing

Silence

One of those things that has come slowly but steadily is the knowing that there is a whole world of communication that occurs when we are silent. It seems that most of my peak experiences were not during the company of others but in company of the universe. Which certainly includes all of us but... Continue Reading →

Growing

Growing, I bring the world I know. Living. I have now, again and again, Lived. Now has charged tastes of sight, sound, smell, and the beads marching and whispering through my fingers. Past, distorted reflections. Future, dust blown ahead by fragments of mind. Dreams of leaving and leaving melts it all. Until. Growing even more,... Continue Reading →
