Remembering 9-1-1

When the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center, I was galvanized to action. The following poured through me that morning:

This IS a Test!

Several days later, I sent out the next message:…

Jesus: Quintessential Everyman

Got a kick out of this, sent to me by cyberpal Jacqui Hoag:

Even God enjoys a good laugh!

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:

1. He called everyone brother

2. He liked Gospel

3. He didn't get a fair trial

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:

1. He went into His Father's business

2. He lived at home until he was 33

3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure… Continue

Letting Go Into Love

In her latest issue of Cosmic Time, astrologer Allison Rae offers a potent Lammas message for our dawning Aquarian Age; here's an excerpt:

"The stellium of planets in Aquarius is a beacon. This is where to focus in coming years. The unpredictable energies of Uranus teach us to let go, open to the destructive/creative forces of the Universe, and allow love to shine… Continue

Several people on the call requested the quotes included in the talk.… Continue

El Paso to N. CA: Going My Way?

Left my beloved Toyota Corolla in El Paso, TX (just over the Mexican border) when I drove there to buy the camper van (all posts about subsequent journey can be found here).

Now I need to bring the car back to northern CA. Know a responsible, non-smoking driver who'd enjoy the adventure? Free ride (I'll cover gas and lodging, and even have suggested people to stay w/ along the way!) Car is old but sturdy (hey,… Continue

Amazingly, somebody already is using both my own name and my website URL (, though neither is active, it appears. Hence the underscore.

Surrender, Orgasmic Gas, and Gratitude

I've been on a wild cross-country journey since early May, which is why I've not posted here in awhile. My Health, Wealth and Wisdom blog chronicles my adventures, and I invite you to enjoy and comment.

A Spiritual Conspiracy

The following came to me this Mother's Day morning from Iona Laing, one of my newsletter subscribers, who is based in South Africa. It sounds similar to Aluna Joy's latest transmission, Spiritual Pandemic, as well as the beginning of my New Nomads article. We're all increasingly on aligned frequencies ...…

Beltane Benevolence

Today my favorite bank teller said, "Oh, it's the first of May ~ that's called May Day, isn't it?" And I had a perfect opening in which to explain to two intrigued bank employees (the teller next to him was all ears, too!) that the secular version of these holy days leaves a lot out.

May 1st is Beltane: a time for celebrating the beauty and sanctity of all… Continue

To Receive Your Good

It's an intense time on the planet, to say the least. We're all being squeezed, and what it looks like differs from person to person. Feeling some anxiety over a long-standing challenge in my own life, today I received this wisdom as a forward from my dear 95-year-old friend Ellie ~ yes, she uses email!

Timely, for all of us, it's a variation on, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." The reminder soothed and strengthened me. May it do the same for you. Oh ~ if the word "God"… Continue

Law of "Attractiveness"? Susan Boyle Brings Down the House

The music scene ~ at least in Great Britain ~ has been knocked sideways in the last few years by breakthrough talent in unassuming packaging: first Paul Potts singing Nessun Dorma, and now, 47-year-old Susan Boyle, serenading the judges of Britain's Got Talent with I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables.

Thanks to the… Continue

Are You Allergic — Or Toxic?

This time of year, many people plunge into abject misery due to the proliferation of pollens and other allergens. But what if your "allergies" actually have a more serious and sinister cause?

As you may know, I spent years spiraling into severe chemical toxicity, a condition conventional medicine not only does not recognize, but denigrates. Yet a… Continue

The Cosmic Egg

"Exovo omnia." Everything from an egg. ~ William Harvey

When I was taking those first tentative steps towards awakening in 1989-90, I visited a woman who did soul readings. While this is much more commonplace today, the idea sounded quite exotic to me then. I drove north (to the town I now call home) and met with a lovely woman who had me first envision a color (I saw deep magenta), then instructed me to allow it to seep slowly into… Continue

Innate Intelligence: The Eyes of the Mind

Back when it was still known as "Laughter of the Heart", I trained in a breakthrough method of public speaking conceived by Lee Glickstein. Speaking Circles made a huge impact in my life, because, like improvisational comedy, which I'd discovered years earlier, it was a safe space in which to allow your essence to emerge: distinct from other forms of speaker training, the Speaking Circles model wasn't about criticism, but… Continue
