I’ve been in limbo for the last couple of weeks. Adrift and waiting for some sort of clarity are contrary to my core nature—my Inner Ego Aspect. I like projects and creating and a sense of direction and purpose.
But none of these are clear right now.
So I wait. … Read more…
The bestselling novel of 1961 was Allen Drury’s Advise and Consent. Millions of people read this 690-page political novel. In 2016, the big sellers were coloring books.

If you want to wake up, you’ve got to go deep.
Practically all the reviews for Mystical Oneness and the Nine Aspects of Being mention the depth of it. Of how useful it is for both beginning and advanced spiritual seekers.
With the internet, our information horizon has expanded to the practically infinite.
But if we want to develop and mature, we’ve got to be selective with our time and attention. We’ve got to focus on just a few select topics and go deep.
So find something you love…
And dedicate your time to it…
And go deep.
An excellent practice for determining the meaning of your life is to imagine yourself on your deathbed. (Note: I did not say this was a fun practice.)
You’re lying there on your bed, dying. There’s no hope of a cure. There’s no finagling your way out of this one. Superman can’t save you and Dr. House is on vacation. You. Are. Screwed. You’re in this bed and you (at least your body) is never getting out of it alive.
What do you regret?
I know I’m all over the place on this blog… Kidney stones, I AM, TaoGod(I), nomad life, photography…. The book is a hell of a lot more organized.
Dealing with Shadow traits came up recently and I realized I needed to expand on this subject in the book. After writing it up, I realized it can be applied to any negative personality trait.
Who doesn’t have a little something they don’t like about themselves?

Holding Myself Accountable To The Witness/Mystic.
When I catch myself taking my thoughts or emotions too seriously, I will access the Witness (no boundaries) while opening my Heart (Mystic). I will send Love to everything and everyone in my vicinity. I will be boundless Love.
No call. I want to focus on the book and I want you to become more confident in your abilities.
I met a man the other day who wanted to write an RPG (computer game), but he had a dozen excuses for why he couldn’t do it. Something was always wrong. Some barrier was always in the way. … Read more…
I’ve been saying this to people a lot lately. It’s like the key to happiness:
If you do everything for Love, then everything you do will make you happy.
I did a Google search on it. I figure someone’s got to have said it before. It’s so self-evident.
Nada. A search on “if you do everything for love” gets you Meatloaf’s “I would do anything for love” (I love Meatloaf, but that’s beside the point).
You want to know what’s holding you back from awakening? Just ask yourself as often as you remember:
Am I doing this for Love?
And if not, ask:
Why not? What is standing in my way?
I can guarantee that over the course of a few days you’ll come up with a long list, but your list of What Is Blocking My Love? will ultimately translate into these five, simple words:
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! 😀
I love you.
Be happy. Do it for Love.
I had completely forgotten about the Memorial Day weekend until I overheard a conversation in a coffeeshop. To avoid the “holiday desperation” that often comes with it, I’ve decided to wait it out here in Flagstaff where I know the terrain and the remote campsites. As a bonus, the extra few days will give me time to finish up the materials for the book proposal. Maybe even get it off to some publishers.
Which brings up the topic of this post. My guiding principle, my motto, my maxim, the way of living which I’ve been practicing since it was revealed a couple months ago:
Do everything for Love. Let TaoGod worry the details.
When you shift your motivations from one of “What can I get out of this?” to “I’m doing this for Love,” something amazing happens… … Read more…
From the book in progress. Save these reminders to your phone and ask yourself them throughout the day. Don’t rush through them, really think about answering the questions. If the answer is ‘No’ to any one of them, ask yourself, “Why not?”
The smart have their theories, but the wise have their scars. … Read more…
