Fealty!

A small word.  In English, we reserve small words for those with pity meanings.  Simple concepts: the smaller the word on the printed page, the more likely it came from english and hence roman, Greek, and Egyptian with a lot of Norse thrown in as seasoning for zillions of years. Everything except the word ‘the’ […]

Sarah Palin’s MegaChurch of politics

It’s not really a church, it’s a nascent political party. We allow any number of them in this country. For nearly any reason. Church or Party. And just like our very successful MegaChurches, we have found that the money making aspect of these things is fabulous. We in America know how to SELL. And the […]

Magnetic Miracle Oil

I saw the first pictures of liquid oil several years ago. The movement of the liquid was intriguing. Almost mind-boggling. It moves, follows the magnet, rises up to it like a plant-blob growing from the depths. Very much a Special Effects wonder. In the last few weeks, I have noticed a commercial where a magnet […]

Saint Yosemite Sam

Hard wall of the economy Three years of no income makes quite a dent in a life. Now I’m a master of living small, but my smallness got smaller and smaller until, my economic situation became a singularity that sucked in everything I had, relied on, aspired to and promised.

Atheism and Spirituality

I’m sure you would say that atheism and spirituality are mutually exclusive. That is an atheist MUST reject anything remotely spiritual. I am of the opinion that an atheist can be acutely aware of spirituality. By rejecting God or gods in any form, an atheist must be aware that the actions of self and others […]

That connection is within so that no one can step between. Like, but unlike, the Rasta InI it tells us that InI, our connection between that first […]

The Keys to the Universe

As Swami Beyondananda tells us: The bad news is that there are no keys to the Universe. The good news is that the Universe isn’t locked. Seek and ye shall find. So seek and find. PS. it may take a while — have patience. (insert cosmic laughter here)

Full Faith Gnostic

OK. I admit it. I’m a Taoist Gnostic. A gnostic is a soul aware of itself and it’s intimate connection to the Soul of the Universe. The Taoist part is that the path is the connection. The bottle, the message and the sea. All are the same, not really separate, even though we might think […]

Everything and Nothing

Matthew Fox recently spoke here in Honolulu. We listened as he talked about spirituality for the 21st century. One person asked “can you set me straight about what exactly is God?” The answer was that if someone says they know “exactly” what God is, you should run the other way! Maybe the best image of […]
