Dang, Love done come up and just plum swallowed me whole!!!
Be Here Now
You hurt all of humanity when you hurt anyone, including yourself
See yourself in everyone
You are not separate, remember!
Who's Your Daddy?
Sufferin' Suckotash!
Its the end of the world (as we know it)
That dog can hunt
We're cookin' with gas
None at this time.

It seems a very difficult thing,

this just noticing the mind

so possessively intertwined  

with our fearful, dark,

often hostile memories.


It may very well be,

that if you patiently wait and see,

what you will really encounter,

is no more than your covered over,

scared little boy or girl,

who, at the…

“Ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

Living we try – dying we must”.


Digging the soil with trowel in hand

Humbles and beckons me,

As only death can.


I am honored to perform this basic task.

I do not need distractive thoughts,

anxiety, philosophy or dread.


It is a simple and pure action to undertake.

I am grateful – saddened and awed by this friend’s passing.

His gentle kindness has filled my…

Come to a full stop.

Bring your awareness and attention to your inner states of balance and harmony.

And, be honest with yourself.

What disturbances and conflicts are exacerbating your inner balance and harmony?


Once you identify these invasive thoughts and uncover their beliefs,

 recognize that they are your guests.

Perhaps they have extended their stay?

It’s a huge house you…

Everything made of love

 and everything made of fear

 is alive,

 incubated and harbored in the human mind.


Ours is a journey of discernment,

 of recognizing where love has gone astray

 and escaped in the forms of anger,

 distrust, sadness, depression  …


Ours is both an inward journey,

 As well as an outward journey.

We may try to cloister ourselves from the external…

Hi Howard,
Nice to have this continuing contact with you! Thanks for your assist on the roommate need. Though I didn't fill it right away, now the previous tenant has come back, so I'm all set until next month, when the other room is opening up. Hope to see you around...

Howard, in response to your interest in Almaas, let me recommend that you read his latest book, Unfolding Now. His writings are prolific and often rather dense--though always illuminating. This book is very accessible and manages to convey the essence of his teachings, with inquiry exercises accompanying each chapter that serve to deepen one's experience. I love it!

Thanks, Howard. I'm excited to be here. Am I here? Or would it be that I am there? Of course, in truth, I am here and I am there. What's my name? I think I'm a squirrel. No wonder life seems confusing at times.
