Two-bit Guru | Giving money to friends | Photo of a Christmas card with a $100 bill sticking out of it.

Four months before Christmas one year, a friend complained that his small business wasn’t doing as well as he’d like. I commiserated, and once we’d opened up the topic of ain’t-times-tough, it became a regular theme. Since things were bad for him, I couldn’t very well say they were good for me, although they were. […]

Two-bit Guru | Knowing is Not knowledge | Photo of Dave meditating

In my last post I ventured into the fascinating area of science on the edge, either the edge of discovery or the edge of foolishness, depending on one’s point of view. In this post I’d like to delve deeper into on-the-edge, not in relation to the material world but rather in relation to the inner […]

Two-bit Guru | New Site Layout | Screenshot capture on the new homepage for twobitguru.com

Welcome to the new layout for Two-bit Guru! I do hope you like it. Everything that was on the site before is here now, but in a more easily accessible form. I’ve made one small change in the short comments next to my picture: I removed the word “success” and replaced it with “satisfaction.” I […]

When, decades ago, I first heard about the Devas, I thought the people who dreamed them up must have been crazy, stupid, drugged, impractical, or all four. It wasn’t only the Devas.

Two-bit Guru - Finding your life's purpose - Photo of red sky and trees at dusk

If “Where is the toilet?” is the question most often asked by all human beings in all times, everywhere, then the second most popular question must be “Why are we here?” Not “here” looking for a toilet but ”here” on this planet looking for meaning in our lives. I do believe I have come upon […]

This is a guest post by the artist, Alayna Rose. When I was a kid there were times when this feeling would come over me, surround me. I didn’t realize what was happening. All I knew is that half an hour or forty-five minutes later I felt very refreshed, rested. It was a feeling of […]

“Trouble, how many ways do I detest thee? Let me count the ways.” ~Not Quite William Shakespeare. In a lot of ways we do create our own reality but sometimes undesirable events occur in our lives in which we have no say whatsoever. A bolt of lightning, for instance, that kills or maims us. We […]

“Remember to play after every storm!” Mattie Stepanek If you’ve read my previous Creating Your Own Reality posts you probably agree that at least some of the time and in some ways we can influence and dramatically effect our reality. I’m going to make a bold statement and say that every moment of our lives […]

“It is the mind that maketh good or ill, That maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor.” Michel de Montaigne “And the face …” Eno In the previous blog, I wrote about how our facial expressions can change our feelings. We also express our feelings with our faces. Almost too obvious to state, isn’t it? […]

“I don’t know how many parts this thing will have, but you can be sure it will have at least one.” Eno When a friend told me a long time ago that we create our own reality I thought he was screwy, but I was willing to accept two things: If I spend a day […]
