One of the oh so very subtle properties of Consciousness is that we believe what we perceive. As I pointed out in Being God: A User’s Manual (the included Limitations chapter), this is a necessary function so You-as-God can experience life authentically.

But, inadvertently, it creates a serious barrier to all types of growth (not just spiritual growth). From My Dying Words: … Read more…

Every time I re-enter Civilization I’m always hit with cultural shock and a mild depression. Though city and town folk are surrounded by the wonders and benefits of modern society—immersed in the benefits of urban consolidation—they all seem so stressed and dissatisfied. It’s nothing to pick up groceries or auto parts or home supplies or the mail. Stores to satisfy your every need and desire lie right around the corner. Urban dwellers have direct and practically immediate access to medical services and government benefits and employment and education and libraries and …. The world is the urban dweller’s oyster. Yet they all seem so unhappy and frustrated.

What gives? … Read more…

It was the first time in about seven years that I had visited Florida where I wasn’t self-tasked with solving a problem.

Without an agenda—without a goal—there was time to enjoy the trip and the family and the warmth.

Why do we live so much for the future? Why do we believe it will hold something better than this moment? … Read more…

One of the greatest benefits of spiritual awakening is that life consistently “lines up.”

Read up on practically any spiritually enlightened person and somewhere in their narrative they will say something similar—that things just work out for them.

This happens so often in my life—I am so lucky—that I am literally surprised when things don’t work out. … Read more…

I get at least one email a day asking me what I think about Trump. Some think he’s going to revolutionize American politics. Some think he’s going to be the next Hitler. Many think he’s just plain stupid.

After his call with Taiwan (the unintended start of WW III or the beginning of a prosperous new era?) I’m not sure if he’s stupid like a cow (above) or stupid like a fox (here). … Read more…

Yesterday, I held the door for an elderly woman. She thanked me, and said that there aren’t many gentlemen left in the world.

When the world is filled with hate… your actions are more important than your words.

Embodying Love is more powerful than fighting hatred.

Act from Love.

Be Love incarnate.

Your message will come through.

Live your life like there is a 75% chance that you’ll be dead in two years.

Seriously. Try it. Really dive into this idea, and watch where it takes you. 75% chance, not 100… 75.

Suddenly Death becomes your Motivator, your Timekeeper, your Coach. Death—once the enemy—becomes your personal Spiritual Guide. … Read more…
