As I looked up from my Kindle, as I thought over the words I had just read, as I expanded and my self boundaries collapsed and vanished, I noticed the trees around me were filled with dozens of various birds of all shapes and colors: black and white woodpeckers skittering on the trunks, grey and dusky flycatchers looping off the branches, robins hopping about among the fallen leaves, and these yellow and brown wrens(?) flittering about in the bushes by the creek. None of these birds were here yesterday, and, as I type this an hour later, none of these birds are here now. … Read more…

Though I hadn’t planned it, I woke up expecting to leave my cool and isolated camp today. Two hours later, a shepherd (as in herder of sheep) pulling his little vardo-like wagon and cargo trailer appeared on my mile long, dead end road and I greeted him and said, “Don’t worry, you’re not going to have to back up, I’ll be out of here in five minutes,” and (much to his delight for I don’t know how he could have gotten his dual trailers turned around with me parked there), I broke camp and drove away.

This blog goes through “theory phases” every so often, and I really don’t care too much for them, so I’ll finish off the “Map of Identity” (new Map) with something I realized while creating it: We don’t exist at any one place on the map.Read more…

Feeling the need for a change in venue, I broke camp and headed north. I’m considering heading west to (eventually) the coast and from there heading down the coastal highway as winter comes on, but who knows? Freedom is a wonderful thing.

Above is an image of my new map of consciousness which I’ve put together for the book. These are phases that I’ve gone through over the years in my spiritual quest. … Read more…

There is an inner you and an outer you. This should be quite obvious once you think about it: I have all these inner experiences (thoughts, sense of self, imagination, dreams, desires, …), and I have all these outer experiences (trees, rocks, chairs, friends, lovers, …).

For years, I’ve been saying that to truly grow spiritually, we have to bring our spirituality to life. We have to live it.

With the realization of me, the Eternal (and I’ll explain this term in a moment), I see a wonderful analogy here. … Read more…

The result of my OS Reboot. The following is based on my personal experiences, so this “map” will differ from other religious, philosophical, and people’s theories. I doubt it is complete (ie: Version I), and I’m not sure where I’m going with it, but in the interest of transparency, here’s what I/She/We wrote this morning in coffee shop in Colorado Springs: … Read more…
