[ if you can’t recall the writer, you can still recall the tune, dept. ]

This, from one of the great wonderers of the world – Albert Einstein – was slipped under my e-door this morning:“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”Indeed, and let’s add a little grace note here on the ‘direction’ we may also be well advised to look: Look deep into your inner […]

[ the texture of life, dept. ]

The other day, in passing by an I-phone-engaged couple wandering remotely together in a store, I was particularly ‘touched’ to hear Elton John singing his Rocket Man as he’s circling the brilliant blue earth below:“Some things look better just passing through… And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time‘Til touchdown brings me ’round […]

[ living here beautifully, with all the noise, dept. ]

It’s raining and the tree branches are elegantly waving and bobbing and bidding me to join them outside my window as I sit here in the old wingback chair simply watching the various comings and goings – the ‘experiencing’ – of life and living while writing this little missive to myself. It’s a vague urge […]

[ truth gets lost in the tellin’, dept. ]

Some years ago I bought in my travels, my one and only bumper sticker and promptly buried it in my basement; years later, after searching all over the world for “The Truth” (It’s complicated, or so it seems) I found it – the sticker – again and, moved perhaps by it’s growing relevance to my […]

[ peace in fact, dept.]


[ in the stream of goodness, dept. ]

** Sometimes we come across a particular clustering of words that point wisely and deeply; they inspire and ‘ring true’, they deepen and widen our understanding of what we are and the world is. Perhaps the below will strike you powerfully too. Enjoy your quiet self 🙂 “I reject the present pattern of social structures, […]

[ a break from it all, dept. ]

FINDING GRACE IN NOT NEEDING TO KNOW. All we really want is a little peace and quiet. That’s not too much to ask, right? How ’bout if the price for that peace is to allow everything to be as it is, like it or not? Seems Hell is when we don’t know the real value […]

[ saying yes to what is, dept. ]

Seems in aware living we’re always saying “yes” to life as it happens. Part of that welcoming arises from the recognition of our true self as being nothing in particular and everything in general – the whole – both empty and full, so to speak. Indeed, in aware living there’s living paradox.There’s a basic understanding: […]

[ never mind, dept. ]

There’s no need to stop thought. Let the brain chatter as it will – it has to move and you cannot control thoughts. There’s no need, just never mind them – if you don’t resist they won’t persist. Lovingly, non-judgmentally, watch like you’re a welcoming hotel hostwatching the lobby traffic coming and going through revolving […]

[ finding the goodness in life, dept. ]

Indeed, I just gratefully found this pix and was deeply reminded of the innate ‘compassion’ in all of nature, in all of our self. Beauty – like love, is not limited – it manifests itself indiscriminately, freely, fully, unconditionally. When we look from love, we see it all the time, yes 🙂
