A Story Of Joy And Gratitude And Awakening

Positive Post-it Notes

Positive Post-it Notes


August 13, 2017 2:02 PM

Here’s an email I received today (I was offline a few days). It’s a perfect, first-person description of what it’s like when the ego story is seen through—and just how hard it is to describe.

Notice a couple points (I bolded the appropriate text): … Read more…

Being Pulled From The Light

Photo from “Fading Toward Enlightenment”

June 29, 2017 9:24 AM

The message of nonduality is that all is One Thing and the implications of the siddhis is that this One Thing is intelligent.

In other words:

You are God.

(All is One. The One is intelligent. The One is God. You are One. You are God.)

Even though my conscious mind believes this, my thoughts and actions often say otherwise. My unconscious beliefs often pull me out of this state. And therein lies the issue. … Read more…

Tiny Wirs (Edward James Wirs)

E.J. “Tiny” Wirs. August 5, 1934-June 21, 2017

An hour into the summer solstice, my father detached from his well worn and beat-up body, hovered over it a few minutes, then took that wonderful tunnel ride into the Light.

Right this minute, as you read this, I’m certain that he’s hanging out in the Soul Realm, telling a rapt audience of old high-school buddies about all the adventures he had here in this silly, manifest world. … Read more…

Calm Weather. Clear Mind.

This Morning's Brain Dump

This Morning’s Brain Dump


April 10, 2017 9:55 AM

For many years—the years I was serious about becoming less—I was convinced that my emotional state affected the weather. Now I know, largely because of my experiences with the Collective Consciousness (here, here, and here), that it is a two way street. How could it be otherwise? It’s all One.

For the last few days, the winds have been brutal. For the last few days, my mind has been inundated with Insights and doubts and frustrations. The Serenity Technique has been invaluable with the frustrations, but the winds and the Insights and the doubts have been so overwhelming. Many longtime readers know I have a love/hate relationship with the Insights—that their gifts come with a cost. All I could do was wait and abide and accept. … Read more…

Why I Wrote The Serenity Technique


The 80/20 rule for marketing a book is this:

  1. Ask your readers to buy the book
  2. Ask them to review it
  3. Ask them to tell their friends about it

I hope you’ll do all three. My work goes nowhere without you.

Peace and Love,


My Selfish Secret

The Mysterious Future

The Mysterious Future

Besides helping others, I had a secret, 100% totally selfish reason for writing Mystical Oneness and the Nine Aspects of Being: I wrote it for my future self. … Read more…

DX Trump


Veterans will recognize the meaning of the title right away. DX stands for Direct Exchange. Think trading something in for a new model: This sleeping bag has a hole in it. I need to DX it.

So the title above roughly translates into:

This president is insane. We need to trade him in for a new one.

Sometimes I think the world isn’t ready for what I have to say. I often think about just giving up blogging and throwing in the towel. PURR spirituality (Puppies, Unicorns, Rainbows, and Ribbons) is so very popular, while AARG spirituality (Applied, Authentic, Real, and Genuine) is often received with contempt and criticism. … Read more…

Authenticity vs Authority (Explorer vs Expert)

Out My Windshield

Out My Windshield

I’m back at one of my favorite camping spots—along the Columbia River just downstream of the John Day Dam in OR/WA. I’ll probably move up to Mt. Hood later today to visit with my Frog Master (if it isn’t too late in the year for him) so I may be offline for a bit.

The other day I came across this interview with Mike Row, the host of Somebody’s Got To Do It. Even though the interview is on LifeHacker and they’re all about gadgets and tech (I love the part where Mike gets all excited upon hearing about super sticky post-it notes), he soon turns the conversation to something I feel strongly about (particularly in spirituality): Authenticity versus Authority (the Explorer versus the Expert). … Read more…
