The Moment (TaoGod(I))

S. OF ASH FORK, AZ November 1, 2016 10:38 AM I’m always amazed how my life consistently “lines up.” How She—the Divine—manipulates my world so as to teach me, or others, something new. I didn’t understand the message of the Kidney Stone before. But now I do. From the book, … Read more…

The Moment (I AM Aspect)

RENO, NV October 9, 2016 8:57 AM In Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment, Jed McKenna wrote I look upon Civil War hospitals and Nazi death camps and children’s burn wards with the same eye with which I look upon bursting gardens and starswept nights and laughing babies. I wonder how he’d “look … Read more…

The Moment (The Self)

SUSANVILLE, CA October 5, 2016 5:11 PM For the Divine to see Herself, She requires separation. She requires you. Like a finger pushed below the surface of an aquarium, you are a finger of the Divine pushed into this manifest world. For you to survive so that She can see … Read more…

The Moment (Outer Ego Aspect)

SISTERS, OR September 22, 2016 1:10 PM The Outer Ego Aspect is about our dynamic personas. It is not about defining ourselves, or presenting an image designed to manipulate the opinion of others.

The Moment (Inner Ego)

HOOD RIVER, OR September 7, 2016 10:35 AM The Inner Ego Aspect is all about our core personality. Not our roles, not our beliefs. Not our Me-story. Deep, ingrained personality traits. Traits that are practically impossible to change on our own, yet still change all on their own.

Words Whispered In A Moment Of Clarity

BLM Forest N of SUSANVILLE, CA—Early this morning, I expanded into Emptiness and watched my hands. They grasped the handle of a pan and lifted it out of a wire mesh box used to hold pans in place in a home that sometimes moves abruptly. My hands and fingers delicately lifted the lid … Read more…

Life Is This Moment

Hi Wayne, I was doing dishes and a thought came out of the blue. Life is this moment, only this moment. It surprised me and I looked around and thought where did that come from. But I felt different after that realization, more appreciation for life. Could you elaborate on … Read more…

When I Became A Mystic

Cherry Blossoms at My Grandfather's Grave

PALM BAY, FL–As I was redesigned this blog a few days ago, I paused a moment to re-read the first chapter of Fading Toward Enlightenment and was suddenly overcome with emotion.

As I reread this page–as I relived that cold, dark morning alone at my grandfather’s grave (having missed the funeral)–I was overcome with emotion as I recalled looking down at the freshly turned earth of his final resting place.

At that time, I was wracked with tears at the meaninglessness of his life. At the meaninglessness of MY life. At the meaningless of ALL life.

That was a key moment in my evolution–in my realization that there must be something more than simply being born and living and dying.

That was the moment something shifted inside. When, on that cold damp morning, as I looked up from the freshly turned clay of the gravesite, and I saw these miraculous cherry blossoms (above).

At that moment, I caught my first glimpse of an intelligence working behind the scenes.

That was the moment something changed in me.

That was the moment I became a mystic (though I didn’t realize it at the time).
