"That's All I Need"

“That’s All I Need”

PHOENIX, AZ

February 15, 2017 8:01 AM

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…

The Surrendering of the Ego

Bridge over the Rio Chama

HERON LAKE SP, NM—I originally wrote the following post three weeks ago, but something in me—you know, Her—told me to wait a bit before publishing it.

Here is what has happened in my student’s life between when the post was written, and today:

  • Her out-of-country boyfriend arrived in town for a visit. This was expected, but the anticipation may have helped add to her “personality distress.”
  • She caught malaria which, as painful as it must have been, probably helped get her through the darkest part of her “transformation.”
  • She is now much more at peace with her “split personality state” (Radiance).

Five AM

Multnomah Falls, Oregon

During creative periods of my life, whether working on an interesting project or – as I am currently doing – writing a book, I often wake up around 5 am with a powerful insight, new idea, or an answer to a problem that has troubled me. I wish I could take credit for these thoughts, but they seem to come out of nowhere – gifts from the Ethereal…

The Male Battle Dance

Two Seagulls

In my meditations, I’ve been working on seeing the the ego clearly – as the illusion that it is. I’ve been practicing so much that it is starting to affect my dreams…

Introspections

Buddha at the San Francisco Japanese Tea Garden

I spent quite a bit of time the last few days looking deep within. Looking into my story. Finding nothing there to grasp hold of. In trying to clarify it, I’m refining my basic “levels” of spiritual development…

Source and the Man of Steel

Yosemite Valley

What I look like and who I am are two totally different people. Inside, there is almost no one left. At times I feel nothing but this radiating flowing outward (no nouns, just verbs). But what people see on the outside is almost completely different…

The Siren

Isle on Lake Pleasant, AZ

I have been working. Working and working and working and it has felt good. It has felt right.

Living this life – the life of a solitary nomad – requires sacrificing much, but the rewards… I could have never imagined the rewards.

Solitude awakens creativity. She awakens passions. She reminds you of your life’s purpose and motivates you to pursue it.

The nomad lifestyle simplifies you. The lack of room, the transitory nature – it clarifies what is important. The lifestyle keeps you honest and whole and true.

It’s not a life for most, but for those to whom She calls – listen. Listen to Her urgings, to Her siren’s song. All sirens sit on deadly rocks, but to those who can put aside their fears – who can keep their heads when the doubts arise – those are the ones who will find their way around the dangers. Those are the ones who will find the rewards hidden in the mists.

Reincarnation as the Missing Spiritual Link

A Park in Phoenix, AZ

I had posted a comment on a Near Death Experience Yahoo Forum and got what read like a bit of attitude from one of the readers, probably due to a misunderstanding of my terminology. My clarification is below the break, but the point I was trying to make was that thinking of yourself as a Soul is not a hinderance to enlightenment, but rather a very important step
