“You need to be as mad as a hatter”

The question is: Do you see your beliefs, or do your beliefs tell you what to see?

As you read, remember…

Every word written is metaphorical, there are no absolutes. I do not “believe in” anything, I merely consider the plausibility of all things and make applicable, the assumption, as it renders itself necessary at any given moment. I allow momentary convictions room to breathe and give my mind permission to be malleable. For the great mystery is unknown to those that know it and known to those that know it not.

The Wise Ones

Human superstitions are absurd! How ridiculously disgusting can we be with our tiny boxed, fear-based, monkey minds? I'm going to go off on the literal interpretation of the word and concept of "witch" for the moment. If anything, the "witches" or "wicchis" of the world should be revered, not feared.…

Listen

"When we hear, we either accept or reject.. or we translate what we hear according to our knowledge, our background.. or we compare what is being said to what is already known.. or we oppose one idea by another. All these characteristics of hearing deny the act of listening. When…

Intellectually AWOL

Don't thank me for my service. I didn't do anything to protect your "freedom". But, if you're interested, I'll tell you what I did do. I went to boot camp, put on a uniform, sang the songs, and fully immersed myself in an eighteen-month long education of the inner workings…

Belief = Limitation

Attack of the Chinese Neuro-Trap! “If belief is the foundation of limitation, then pride is the rigid framework upon which the walls of limitation are nailed to.” ~Shane Dieter This video utilizes a the tangible metaphor of a Chinese finger trap (neuro-trap) to visually explain the process of mental agreements,…

Diluted Linguistics

Let’s discuss what I refer to as diluted linguistics. Before we get to the heart of the subject, we need to first let go of something.. namely, your beliefs.. as they limit your ability to objectively digest subjective material. Lee Papa, founder of the Ganesha Center, commonly uses the term…

Dear Mom

Update as of 2021: It's interesting to listen to my old self as my current understandings have driven me far beyond the state of mind I was in at the time of writing this in 2013. Even though my perceptions have shifted to more distant realms of contemplation, I will…

40 – The number of bits of information the neurons of your conscious (awake – aware) mind process every second. 40,000,000 – Yes, forty MILLION is the approximate number of bits of information processed every second in your subconscious (asleep – unaware – UNconscious) mind. So, with that in mind…

It’s not often that the stars align with such synchronistic precision, as to place in the path of your journey an entity that ceases the seemingly random vibration of your atomic structure, allowing the symphony of your chaos to find complete harmonic resonance when your eyes meet theirs… When the…

Death Doula

This profound experience happened around 2014. Linda's mother Josephine had been in hospice for 7 years. I knew that she was in the process of passing, as Linda had informed me. Earlier that day as I was working at my desk, I suddenly felt the urge to go visit Josephine.…

Demystification Through Etymology

Let's demystify some words through the etymology of the words themselves. Oh, how the religious leaders love to magically melt our minds into believing their hypnotic rhetoric through the learned confidence of their vocal projections and how eager the fragile egos are to have faith in such fables of immortality.…

Empty Mind

Empty your mind, make space for something new. When someone asks you to describe yourself, what comes to mind? Most of us will reach for the defaults: I’m nice, kind, caring, adventurous, compassionate, funny, etc… Whether we really believe these things about ourselves or not. In most cases, we use…
