What do you do when you are in a bind?

You have left the house with plenty of time for your appointment. Then traffic slows down. There is an accident. You are barely moving but the clock keeps ticking. You KNOW you are going to be late. What do you do? In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. ~Einstein It is easy to get angry, [...]

Everything and Nothing.

Wisdom tells me that I am nothing. Love tells me that I am everything.

There are galaxies, and black holes, and [...]

Come Together

How do we deal with devastation? How do we deal with painful, unimaginable losses? How do we deal with the death or injury of our loved ones? How can we deal with our own impending death? The recent earthquake in Nepal has brought these questions to my mind. I spent over a year in Nepal [...]

Maya and the Veil of Illusion

Are we all separate individuals or are we all connected as one universal consciousness? Or are we both simultaneously? This question has been asked repeatedly throughout the ages.

Vision Quest

We live with ourselves everyday. But how well do we really know ourselves? A vision quest is a journey into the self.
