FLOYD AND THE MIRACLE
Some years ago enroute to Mt. Lassen on a horse camping trip with friends, our old truck began to lose power on the steeper sections of the road. The truck, known as Floyd, was soon struggling to keep speed even on the level surfaces and we had no choice but to pull over in a fairly large rest area. Despite our best attempts under the hood, we could not get Floyd to move at other than a snail's pace; no way he could pull the horse trailer to our mountain… Continue

As the Moon chases the Sun in Sagittarius she begins to feel the incendiary effects of Sol’s inferno. Later tonight the two will marry once again and the heat of their passion will propel the Queen of the Night into Capricorn, where she’ll flirt with hoary Pluto and wink at youthful Mercury on her journey back around the wheel.
This is the time of disintegration, Dear Pilgrim... nothing should be initiated while the Silvery Goddess becomes the Phoenix. Dross and the past will ignite… Continue

Since our Solar System has evolved into the Age of Aquarius, we have been given several gifts. The evolution of the Solar System has taken on a Physical Movement. We have moved into a new place around our Galactic Sun. Just as our Earth revolves around our Sun, our Solar System revolves around our Galactic Sun.
Just as man individually and collectively is evolving, our Solar System is evolving. It too has a destiny and purpose in the Mind of God.
The gifts that this… Continue

What would it mean to discover that everything from the DNA of life, to the future of our world, is based upon a simple Reality Code—one that we can change and upgrade by choice? New revelations in physics and biology suggest that we're about to find out!
A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that our universe works like a Consciousness Computer. Rather than the number codes of typical software, our Consciousness Computer uses a language that we all have, yet are only… Continue

From Gawky Green of Two Girls Go Green
I’m sitting in Starbucks. It’s snowing. It’s Michigan and it’s December, so I guess I am not that surprised. But that doesn’t negate the fact that I am cold. And one [of the many] thing(s) I hate about cold weather is that it leaves my fashion wardrobe limited. Not only do I lack motivation to dress any way but comfy, there are only so many variations of long sleeves, long pants and boots.
Alas, this is why I appreciate fashion… Continue

Cairo’s infamous “City of the Dead” is a centuries old cemetery that has become home to as many as a million Egyptians during the last decades. The buildings in the cemetery are like full-blown houses and the cemetery has long had mosques, school and markets. “The historic belief in Egypt is that the cemeteries are an active part of the community and not exclusively for the dead. Egyptians have not so much thought of cemeteries as a place of the dead, but rather a place where life… Continue

WORD FOR THE DAY (gratefulness.org)
Thursday, Dec. 10
The nonviolent approach does
not immediately change the heart
of the oppressor. It first does
something to the hearts and
souls of those committed to it.
It gives them new self-respect;
it calls up resources of strength
and courage they did not know they had.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

One of my clients died this year, after a long illness as they say. During our time of work together we frequently had conversations about forgiveness. She had carried strong resentments towards a particular family member and believed that she was entitled to her resentments because this person had behaved badly many times. What she had trouble understanding was that she was compounding the injury to herself by carrying anger and hatred towards him. He wasn't suffering from it; she was. And… Continue

I came across this journal entry which I wrote a while back at Green Gulch – an organic farm which is one of the three San Francisco Zen Center venues. I thought I’d like to share it with you because it portrays (in a really tiny way) the opportunities we are offered all the time as to how we choose to interpret the bigger things which challenge us:
Hosing out the compost buckets at GGF.
Eggshells, coffee grounds and oatmeal
are flying into my face and hair.
