Empty Time

If at all possible, plan in some time in which you have no responsibilities.  Feel how that feels.  In a place where there is nothing all possibilities exist, all choices are available, all conversations are surprises.  Where there is nothing you will find everything.

Aura bubble

I am surrounded by a bubble of energy that is created through me.  Sometimes when I'm riding my motorcycle [well I guess I really do it EVERY time I ride] I consciously imagine a bubble of safety around myself and my bike.  I say to myself "I am safe here in the light.  My ride will be safe, and everyone around me on the roads and the sidewalks will respect that and be safe near me.  I invite anyone who comes near me to enjoy this light and safety."  Then I just smile and nod to everyone I see or pass.  Today while I sit at my desk, I feel larger than life.  I feel that I am wrapped in a sort of cocoon of light/energy.  It's cool.  I invite you all to join me in this safe and peaceful place.

My Favorite Movies from 1971

Harry Nilsson's "The Point" and "Harold and Maude".  I watched them both last night.  If you haven't seen them lately, or at all, I recommend that you do.  You can catch Harold and Maude on Netflix [Maude: Harold, everyone has the right to make an ass out of themselves. You just can't let the world judge you too much. ]  I don't know where to find "The Point" [Oblio:  It seems to me that the pointed man is just about the only person we've met here (in the pointless forest) who doesn't have a point."]  I got a copy from Amazon because I just had to.

It is apparent that these movies, my friends at the time, and the things I was involved in as a person of 18 near the end of the Vietnam war, have colored my entire world view.  Let's look at what we're allowing our teen and young adults to experience now and be more aware of just how important these years are to their happiness later in life.

Join the Conversation

I am delighted to have been found by someone from my past who is nearly a complete stranger.  The best thing about this is, she is willing and able to enter into conversation that goes beyond 'what's up?'  Or maybe I can say that she is willing to discuss the "what's up" that's a bit more important than what we've been doing for the past two+ decades.  As we enter into this conversation about each of our own life journeys I am pleased that the words 'spiritual life' and 'truth' and 'study' are being used.  Each of us is learning to live... it is a lifelong study of the apparent, the invisible, the possible and the real.  Where are the commonalities?  Everywhere.  How are we alike?  In more ways than you might imagine.  I bask in the possibility that there are more people out there who are hungry for the conversation.
