River of Thoughts

a river of thoughts flowing
through my days
returning to the ocean
never ending, always waving

Subterranean Powers


Subterranean powers run our lives. We are not really in control of ourselves and destinies as much as we think. The illusion is that we have conscious control over our lives; the reality is that our preferences, desires, goals, objectives, loves, hates, etc. are all affected and determined by "forces" inside of us evolving along with our bodies over millions of years. Sometimes, I think that these "forces" are the real expression of God (and that they actually help us understand what God is as an actor in the universe). But perhaps it's best to just live with the mystery of it all.

Frequency of the Universe


One of my the most heart warming projects is a decade long project of posting short audio teachings on Internet audio sites. One of the thousands of listeners gave the greatest of complements:

your words always give me hope
that there is someone on the same frequency out there.
the frequency of the universe.

What could that frequency be? Perhaps the ringing echoes of the Big Bang creation event. Maybe the sound of Aum (om) as suggested in the ancient Upanishads. Or, is it the frequency of truth - so sublime that only a quiet soul can hear?

Life's Breath




Life plays us like flutes. The flute's openings are mind, intellect and the five senses. With egos put aside - these flute openings become pure. Life's breath passes freely though us. Our lives become harmonic.

Floating

 The mystery and secret of life. Learning to be. Relaxing into this present moment. A metaphor for living well.
