the work of stability

the most enlightened teachers
experienced great struggles of self

god is the safest constant
if god is ever changing

dear one, see inside yourself
the only constant
is you

Alignment with Being

Most people live in a fog - moving between tasks, situations, and pleasures. Often in a mental fog of remembrances and fantasies. Live life fully. This could just be the only life you know. Pre-life and after-life are matters of speculation and faith. A full life is not measured in number of years, but by depth of understanding and experience. Some die young but had rich lives. Others live long but accomplish little. It's not how long we live, but how we live that counts. We become happy, wealthy and wise in proportion to our alignment with being.

Uphill Battle

Just because you age doesn't mean you are getting old. Bodies might grow older but souls only mature. Don't let your fear of your physical body aging grow like barnacles on a ghost ship. If you can stop carrying around the years of your life like a heavy weight on your back, you will become light and ageless.

Ahimsa and Satyagraha

Ahimsa is "not to injure".
Satyagraha is "holding onto truth".

Keith Whittingslow - The Fine Structure Constant

Recently, an old friend of mine, Keith Whittingslow, passed away. Especially sad for me since I had not kept up with him during the past fifteen years. He sent me a copy of his book: The Fine Structure Constant. This book is a fine blending of science and poetry. His poems are experiments expressing the beauty of the science that he loved. I encourage you to visit the Amazon web link to his book; it includes sample pages of his book. I was truly honored to have crossed paths with Keith in my lifetime.

Buckminster Fuller ~ The Final Message

Earthstar Radio production soundtrack, recorded just weeks before Buckminster Fuller passed away on July 1st, 1983 at the age of 87. In his last days he was focused on integrity. I had the honor of doing the interview in a sound studio for nearly an hour. It was a difficult task. Co-producer, Sherri Morgan, condensed the recorded interview into what felt like the essence of his final message. Buckminster Fuller was one of the most inventive and socially aware engineers of the 20th century. For him "doing more with less" was a human value as well as engineering value. He warned us that we need to do more with less so that "spaceship" could sustain all of us in a high standard of living without the need for war.

Permission granted by the co-producers of Earthstar Radio. This program aired on National Public Radio shortly after Fuller passed away. I don't know the exact date. It was a long time ago. Sound quality is poor - this audio recorded off of an old audio tape in my files. I had lost track of it for many years.
