The Other Necessity

It is a beautiful autumn morning, the air light with coolness, the birds once again songful now past the breathtaking heat of summer. I’ll be posting my next “series” blog on the weekend, but this morning, I’m inviting you to share a moment with me, to insure beyond your cornflakes and each breath you’re taking that you also have the one other thing that life requires—a little bit of wonder. For years, I have...

Topic 4 – Me, Myself and I

We are all a product of the unique way we organize data coming in from the world around us, a product of our worldview. The world is as the world is, but for each of us, it is instead a product of how we  experience it—meaning what thoughts we entertain about it and our emotional response to those thoughts.

Topic 1: To Be or Not to Be

When the extraordinary body of work, the Tao Te Ching appeared roughly 2500 years ago, the question arose as to whether its source was a single individual, Lao Tzu, or a compilation of people, and for some the jury is still out. About 500 years ago, William Shakespeare presented the world with an astounding body of work, and again historians and theorists entertained the question of authorship being one man or several. I never put much stock in...

Introduction: The Greatest Story Ever Told

Years ago when I was studying science, involved in research and planning a life within its sacred realm, I was instructed, like all researchers of the time that the validity of scientific results were judged on statistical significance and repeatability, meaning did it attain the statistical range already delegated as acceptable, and could another scientist repeat your precise method and get your results. Those were the rules human beings agreed...
