A Short Commute to Work

A Short Commute to Work


November 30, 2015 3:15 PM

After spending a few days hanging around the edges of Phoenix, I felt the urge to move on—the outskirts of most cities these days tend to look just like the outskirts of every other city.

I headed east and south with my eye on Patagonia, an artsy town I’m told, which gets bonus points for having public land (free camping options) nearby. But I’m in no hurry. I’ve just set up camp this afternoon on some state trust land (having picked up a permit from the land office while in Phoenix). It seems pleasant enough, so I may stay a day or two or four. … Read more…

Your True Nature

Michelle asked (paraphrasing), “What should I focus my practice on? When I approach all of them (Soul, Radiance, Witness, Integration, ….) I tend not to go very deep into any one thing and my practice isn’t very effective.”

I want to reply, “Focus on TaoGod(You),” but I know that isn’t enough. How do I explain TaoGod(I) in a way others can understand?

It is God’s nature to be without a nature.

A Pleasant Lake

Blogging By The Lake

Blogging By The Lake


November 23, 2015 1:01 PM

I’m sitting on a peninsula overlooking Lake Pleasant—an appropriate name for the lake—parked in a spot I intend to camp on tonight. I normally avoid paying for campsites, but today I’m reminded of the benefits of state and county parks: Clean sites, trash bins, toilets, showers, fresh water… and a distinct lack of ATVs, dirt bikes, target shooters and hunters. It being a weekday, it’s not even crowded.

I should do this more often—the Middle Way and all.

Soul Research

Desert Night

Desert Night


November 21, 2015 1:30 PM

For the last few days I’ve been working on the book in the mornings—researching and collecting evidence of the Soul—then driving in the afternoons, searching for that perfect camping spot.

I’ve been disappointed that Arizona seems to have recently taken to enforcing their no trespassing laws on state lands—lands that in the past I would often camp on. So now I’m forced into “explorer-mode” at a time where I’d like to go to ground and get some writing done. Ideally this “ground” would be close enough to a town where I can work in its coffee shops (which I find conducive to writing), but so far, the only places I’ve found lately were in Lone Pine and Ridgecrest—towns that for some reason I felt compelled to move on from (OK, Lone Pine was getting downright cold at night). … Read more…

The Divine Thread

On the Road To Parker, AZ

On the Road To Parker, AZ

I worked on the book through four Pomodoros and when I was done the wind was still blowing brutally and the dust, the dust was making it miserable, so I did what any drifter would do and I hopped in the driver’s seat and drifted.

I’ve been experiencing something lately, something I wanted to be sure of before sharing—the nature of Self from the highest perspective I have access to. … Read more…

Fear and Focus


November 14, 2015 7:21 AM

Yesterday was a relatively unheard of two-post day for me. I thought it was odd that I felt so compelled to write about The Messiah right at that moment and not wait until another day. But as I was writing yesterday’s post about a fanatical believer—unbeknownst to me—Paris was being brutally attacked by fanatical believers.

Today I was going to post something I wrote over a week ago, the last of the series of life changing levels—of TaoGod(I), of Love flowing through and embodying us, of such a potential for humanity…—but today, the words would fall on deaf ears. Not because people are incapable of understanding them, but because their attention—their focus—is on pain and suffering and a frightening future as we are inundated with the horrors of the Paris attacks.

Today, I want to write about the big picture problem, the problem that may very well end human existence if we don’t address it before “civilization” can kill us all off. … Read more…

The Messiah

The Darkness and the Light

The Darkness and the Light


November 13, 2015 11:26 AM

His name was Home Free and He told me He was the Messiah and He thought I was a fool because I said that I saw everyone as Divine.

He said God speaks through Him and I exclaimed, “Me too!” with a huge smile, hoping He’d see me as a spiritual brother and He shouted, “No! You have so much to learn!” … Read more…
