“Whenever I found out anything remarkable, I have thought it my duty to put down my discovery on paper, so that all ingenious people might be informed thereof.” Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (Dutch Biologist, 1632-1723)
“The educated do not share a common body of information, but a common state of mind” Mason Cooley (American , b.1927)
“Our best thoughts come from others.” Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Poet, Lecturer and Essayist, 1803-1882)
And the time shall come when you shall go deeper than your words, deeper than your thoughts, when you shall and must transcend your little personality self to enter the abode of the hearts love. There, my brother must you tarry for a period and experience all the flame of the heart, and there, as you enter deeper into that flame, shall all that is not of the one life, be burned away. And then, according to your surrender shall you gradually pass into the great heart of life and know and melt into the flame of all flames. This is… Seek More
I have a goat. He’s a boy. I named him Billy. I know how unoriginal that is. He’s also a professional eater. As I sit here on the creek bank, listening to the forest while babble flows freely through my head, he hovers near, chomping on the thorniest, pokiest, vilest of weeds with incisors made of hardened steel. Frankly, I think he’s in heaven. Hell, he was made for this. In stark contrast to his black coat, he also has a completely white ass. I mean the entirety of his behind—fur as well as sphincter—is bright glowing white. So is… Seek More
Okay, so this is a bit of a weird thing to start out with, but the Disney cartoon Tangled has apparently inspired a lot of abuse survivors. I never really thought about the movie in that way, or maybe I did not allow myself to think of it in that way. I knew that the movie resonated with me, but I did not know quite why. After reading some other people’s reactions to the film, people who had made it through abusive situations like I have, I realized just why I loved the film so much. First of all is… Seek More
Being in touch with one’s soul is a huge achievement. Sometimes, it takes individuals an entire lifetime to figure out how they are going to get in touch with their soul. When you have accomplished this particular feat, what are some careers you could consider? A Religious Life People who know their own souls are often able to help others experience these important vibes. Furthermore, they recognize, appreciate and respect the power of spirituality in the experience and formation of the soul. Therefore, these individuals tend to work well as priests, pastors, nuns, deacons, monks or other people who are… Seek More
Why is it so hard to miss someone? I know it seems strange, but I have this issue with feeling close enough to anyone else to admit I really miss them. For some reason it feels like I am admitting that I am attached to them in some unhealthy way. But missing someone is not unhealthy at all. In fact, it is probably very healthy if you are doing it right. It is only natural to love someone and miss them when they are gone. As long as missing them does not turn into an obsession or depression, you are… Seek More
Many of us have felt the peace of meditation after just a few minutes of meaningful silence. There are long-term and far-reaching benefits to meditation that we may not realize, too. A new study published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience shows that just 8 weeks of dedicated meditation training changes the brain—even outside of the meditative state. Brain responses to others’ emotional states Co-author Gaelle Desbordes recruited healthy subjects with no previous meditation training for the study and separated them into three groups. Before commencement of the experiment, the researchers showed each participant images of people in varying emotional… Seek More
A major journalist recently likened a spat between the presidential candidates as reminiscent of two kids fighting in the back seat. A political analyst suggested that campaign hardball is acceptable because cheap shots have been around since the inception of the Republic. Well, back then slavery was accepted and women couldn’t vote. The argument that ‘it’s always been this way’ in politics falls short. There is a better way. That is, a civility in political discourse that promotes mutual respect. We need a renegade in the ranks — a candidate that eschews the admonitions of his/her ‘advisors,’ and takes the… Seek More
There are many foods that are supposed to improve our health. From foods meant to help us lose weight, to ones that help our bodies to function properly, to ones that help our brains work better longer. Depending upon the region you grew up in you may be familiar with all kinds of food that supposedly have the power to heal, calm, revitalize or in some way advance the human body. Some cultures believe that exotic dishes like shark fins and rhino horns give them strength and vitality. Others advocate herbs like ginger and Echinacea. Even oils like fish oil… Seek More
When I was child my mother told me about the day when I was born. I am going to share this story with you. The day that my mother was going to give birth to me she was in the river washing the family clothes. For that time there no washer machine in my house. It was in 1967 in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico. When she felt that it was time to give birth to me, she washed all the clothes rapidly, and then she went to the house, mopped the floor, made the food, and then she called the… Seek More
There is a lot of talk in spiritual circles these days of a universal “waking up” period that may come. The only way this would happen, in this humble writers opinion, is one person at a time. There are 8 points to this, among many others, that people can start to implement so they can “wake up” in their own way. 1. Recognizing Motivations This applies to how we perceive why other people do what they do. What motivates them. If we take some time to understand what drives other people, we can better and more constructively respond to those… Seek More
