"Intelligence is not to make no mistakes, but quickly to see how to make them good."
~ Bertolt Brecht
"I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing."
Everyone has inside of themselves a streak in ingenuity that can transform the challenges and obstacles we face into live signs that something is out of sintony in our lives. An intelligent attitude leads us to perceive the… Continue

- An ecology of peace consists of an educated population maintaining a culture of frugality.
- Nonviolence is the equalizing element of an ecology of peace. It is sharing responsibility, respectfully, trusting and supporting while maintaining honesty and accountability. It is practicing non-threatening behavior, including responsible parenting and seeking negotiation and fairness within economic partnership.
- Tolerance and diversity are beneficial elements of an ecology… Continue

I am no-body.
Once upon a time I was a seed. Passing through a journey I landed in a womb. Doctors called me fetous. When I came out from the dark chamber people around called me a bright baby. My mother called me huggy baby and several other cutie names. Each of the family members called me names of his choice. During the naming ceremony the priest gave me the name of Ramesh. As I grew, parents of my kid companions gave me names each suiting their temperaments. In the school each… Continue

The secret of having a long-term loving relationship is for each partner to continuously create the other in the image and likeness of Love.
It dawned on my yesterday, that this May, Larry and I will be celebrating our “official” 25th wedding anniversary. I say “official” because we lived together for two years before we got married.
I was 36 and Larry was 58 when we married. We both had trepidations about making our relationship legal. Our marriage was Larry’s… Continue

The poem/chant Spiraling Home
, which came through me a few weeks prior to September 11th, 2001, is a clarion call for now. There's tremendous power in hearing the words spoken aloud. Chant it or sing it, and see what happens inside you!
It's time for:
Coming out of hiding;
Acknowledging the… Continue

"The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious."

~ Louis Parrish
There are different ways to regulate your life and the organized attitude leads us to perceive a singular order for each being event or circumstance. Things tend to flow better when we organize according with the principles of… Continue

Can music be a force for change? There are many claims as to the transformational power of music. What's your view on this ? The alignment of socially progressively movements with musicans of a ll genere's is age old are artists simoly reflecting these social movements or can they instigate change?

Names have been changed in the following excerpt to protect the innocent:
...Did u hear the one about the Harvard grad, the Buddhist monk, the Atheist, and the Born-again Christian? Me neither, but they have been staying with friends of mine over the last week... some people should just have cameras following them around so that they can broadcast their entire quirky lives for the world to… Continue

Love is Healing.
In honor of Valentine's Day, we will just share our favorite Love Poem:
Sonnets From the Portuguese XLIII.
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need,… Continue

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
A good day to start a bog. Not sure how to name it yet and I think it will evolve and spring to my mind one day.
I must discuss the book I found yesterday, that has completely enthralled me. "The Daily Coyote" by Shreve Stockton. Also on blog. I read 4 pages at the store, which I never do and stood in line reading; I could not put it down.
Her first book, so compelling she will surely be one of the great writers of our time. It's about how she moved… Continue

Hi all you brothers & sisters
Yesterday I walked through the door of AOAND --- inspirated through my Love & Inspiration C.S. :-)
I'm deeply longing for more and need some help in dealing with this overwhelming side (language barriers of understanding, technique, connections ...)
But here I am: A 50 year old fellow, married, two Daughters (16 & 25) and a protestant Pastor (liberal, öcumenical, near to Tillich & Bonhoeffer, a little bit Zen-proofed… Continue

This is excerpted from my February What Shines newsletter
two years ago:
We become "the Light of the world" first within our own beings; then we're able to shine this radiance outward. It's like any other learning process: we can only serve others from a well that runs full and deep.
In this spirit, I offer you an evocative embrace from Derek Walcott (sounding… Continue

Anthropic means 'of or relating to human beings or the period of their existence.' This relationship between man and the cosmos is said to be through intelligent design. Only a small range of possible values for the universal constants (such as the mass of an electron) are consistent with the presence of life as we know it. The significance of such apparent fine-tuning of the universal constants is disputed by those who regard it as trivial and those who argue from it to the necessity of life… Continue
