Are We Really Living in Wonderland?

Here’s some food for thought – a different view than you usually hear about. Everyone agrees that the physical universe is solid and real. It contains awesome levels of energy, unimaginable reaches of space, and immense solidity of matter.  It also persists through infinite expanses of time. Most physical objects last indefinitely until they are either blasted into bits and components by some sun exploding (or a kid with a hammer) – or just break down slowly into their physical components, which go on existing in a different form, like the carpet of moss lying underneath the forest floor, formed from … Continue reading

True or False – Find Out for Yourself

The search for truth is obviously an enormous subject that has been debated endlessly down the ages by plenty of wise – and not-so-wise – people.  But the ability to distinguish or recognize truth is an essential ability that everyone can use on a daily basis. If you can’t work out the truth of something, how can you speak or act correctly about it?  How can you make important decisions without the truth about things and how can you make sure of the consequences? So I’d like to talk about the subject of “truth” in a more down-to-earth way here … Continue reading

Thanks for Your Kind Words & The Art and Stories of Douglas Fairchild

A quick thanks to the commenters who have complimented my site.  As some of these messages come in through the spam catcher, it’s difficult to know if they are from real people as opposed to being automatic messages.  So, to you actual human visitors, I appreciate your kind words.  I designed the website myself using the art of a dear friend, Douglas Fairchild, a wonderful Sacramento area painter and true-story teller who sadly passed away on December 14, 2013. To help make his life, paintings and written true stories better known, I am providing links to several of his websites … Continue reading

Happiness – Your Birthright and Native State

At times on our journey through life, sometimes for extended periods, our inner spark may flicker, seem to dim down, and we lose our belief and feeling we can do whatever we wish, conquer the world, and be happy. Many have said that happiness is our most desired quality and state of being.  When we are happy, we feel carefree, warm, active, loving, devil-may-care, adventurous… or secure and confident.  When we’re happy, we feel at home in our skin and our world.  Things are good.  We take joy in our own endeavors and also in helping someone do or achieve … Continue reading

A Christmas Visit

The prospect of death can be terrifying or depressing and for some can make living and life seem worthless. After all the greatness and creativity
and pleasure that human beings can enjoy and invest into life, it seems the greatest bad joke of the universe that our awareness and our participation in life can simply be cut off
forever.

Dreams – Random Imaginings or Gateway to our Spiritual Selves?

Little-Understood and Mysterious, but Part of Us All Everyone has their own ideas of what dreams are, and what they mean – if anything! Dreams might be the most often discussed yet little understood phenomenon common to all humans – though animals also dream. Certain professions claim dreams as their exclusive turf to define and label – but seem to want to insist that dreams are always symbolic. That is nonsense. What Are Dreams? Though superficially dreams seem similar one to the next, not all are of the same character. Dreams can actually be many different things, from a random … Continue reading

How Takoda Taught Tacu: Learning Through Observation, Experience & Practice

American Indians have always had many ways of passing skills, knowledge and wisdom about life to their
children. America’s First People knew that
observation, experience and practice were essential to prepare young tribe members to participate in
and excel in life. So, one of the most interesting and effective methods was to take each child out into the plains, mountains and forests to observe. An animal, its tracks, clouds, birds,
rodents—anything could be observed until the child attained …

Are Animals Spiritual Beings?

Hello after an absence of some months!  I look forward to continuing to explore the world of spirit in a common-sense manner through this website.  I want to begin by reposting this article from a year ago.  Many people enjoyed it  – I hope new readers will find it now.

Fly with Hawks!

A little interlude of beauty while I work on the next piece…

For those who love the sky, eagles and hawks – this video is so unusual and beautiful – I found it very inspiring. These men are obviously pro bird handlers and seem very careful with the birds – I
don’t think we need fear for their safety. They all seem very at home with each other in the sky.
