Can You See Her?

Can You See Her?

With nowhere to be, I passed straight through John Day and figured I’d continue onto Idaho. 20 miles later, while deep in a national forest looking for a place to camp, I got a flat.

My Fix-a-Flat didn’t fix the flat so I resorted to changing it the old fashioned way. Not a big deal. I’ve changed a million flats, but this was my first experience with Serenity and the whole winched spare tire under the truck thing—that was the hardest part, getting the spare de-winched. I think I’ll pick up one of those tire-hole-plugger kits next time I remember.

I slept on the mountain. It was cool and comfortable and pleasant. … Read more…

Ha! The title sounds like a spy thriller. Unfortunately, I forgot a key group of siddhis in my last post: Energy work and transference. Kundalini, Reiki, Chakras, etc.

I am 95% certain that there is something to these. The reason my faith in them is so high—given my attraction toward the rational—is that I’ve had some personal experiences that simply aren’t easily written off. … Read more…

The Moment (Outer Ego Aspect)

Windows Into Their World

Windows Into Their World


September 22, 2016 1:10 PM

The Outer Ego Aspect is about our dynamic personas. It is not about defining ourselves, or presenting an image designed to manipulate the opinion of others. The Outer Ego Aspect is about communication—about speaking the other person’s language. It is about speaking from our heart, to theirs. Ultimately, it is about love.

You Are On The Right Path

The Mist Moves Toward The Light

The Mist Moves Toward The Light

I stood and stared at the scene above. I stood in awe and wonder and gratitude for at least ten minutes.

Continue doing what you’re doing, I heard Her whisper. You are on the right path, Wayne.

Do everything for love.

Write the book for your audience, not for your self interests.

Live for others.

I had just finished the book, The Art of Peace yesterday. I was amazed at how similarly we experienced Her. As Light. As Love. As the Life Force. As a living Being, right here, right now. Everywhere.

As the fog moved through the shadows toward the Light, like a million souls merging with the Divine, I gazed in wonder and gratitude.

You are on the right path, Wayne. Continue doing what you’re doing.

I know this makes me officially crazy.

It feels so good though. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Road Less Traveled

“This is ridiculous,” the Brain said, “The spot is too sweet. Someone will be camped there. It’s stupid to go so far out of your way.”

As I pulled down the dead-end road and saw all the trees leaning in, and the road in disrepair, the Brain said, “Well, maybe only hunters use the camp in the fall. Maybe She was right.”

Just then, a white pickup truck (the mysterious pickup?) appeared down the road and the Brain shouted, “Ah ha! I was right. The camp is taken! You’re a fool Wayne, you’ve always been a fool! You need to start listening to me more. When will you learn?” … Read more…

Garth came down from his campsite—a campsite I hadn’t known was there 12 hours ago—and asked me how I’d slept and I knew She’d whispered to him in the night. Spiritual people tend to pick up on Her vibe. … Read more…

A Mystical Light On Redinger Lake

A Mystical Light On Redinger Lake


JUNE 16, 2016 11:33 AM

Their names were Nan and Hans and they were from France and Holland and they had arrived on two motorcycles and they were admiring the lake but they didn’t think they’d camp here because they found it too open and exposed and I smiled because I now knew why She had me move my camp only half an hour earlier.

At the time, I didn’t know why She wanted me to move, but I’ve learned the futility of questioning and just did what She said.

“See that rock down there,” I said, pointing down the road to where I had been camped. “Right next to it is a path to a clearing, a clearing with a fire ring and easy access to the lake. Check it out.”

They camped there last night and this morning—just a few moments ago—Nan came up to me and hugged me and said they were so grateful that I’d shown them that secret, hidden site, that it made their whole trip, camping under the stars on this cool mountain lake.

And I smiled… because I was grateful too.

Redinger Lake may very well be my favorite place to boondock. I don’t normally set up a camp, but this place is different.

When I arrived yesterday, the site I favored previously was taken, but as it turned out (you shouldn’t be surprised by now), this worked out to my advantage. By “forcing” me to look for a new spot, I found a great site a couple hundred yards away. Right on the lake, a gentle path down to the water (normally you have to climb down steep rocks) and no room for anyone else to camp right next to me. I don’t know why I never saw this spot before, but I’m grateful now.

I don’t usually set up a camp (ground mat, table, chair) as I don’t usually stay in one spot more than a day or two, but this place is different. Redinger lake is secluded, so town runs for coffee/work are off the table.

With this new, “I’m staying here for about a week” attitude, I’m experimenting with using a spare set of sheets to act as an awning/shade (ala Lifehacker). Pretty sweet so far—shade, gentle breeze, cool water and Jimmy Buffett on the stereo. By repositioning my easy chair to face out the cargo door, it’s almost like I’m living in a mobile tiki hut.

Doesn’t get much better than this.
