US Will Not Survive Says Hopi Elder We are coming to a time where prophecy and man’s inability to live on earth in a spiritual way, is coming to a head. Columbus spearheaded what the Hopi call the first world war, the invasion of Europeans that decimated the native population. Perceptive observations about the truth […]

Awaken the World.

Two-bit Guru | Let it Percolate | Photo of a lathe in a machine shop.

When I was in my early 20’s I worked in a research lab where I met a man named Elmer, the most unique inventor I have ever known. He was something of a magician when it came to creating all sorts of innovative devices, gizmos, gadgets, machines, whatever. I self-appointed Elmer as my mentor because […]

0142 Subtle energies - beans

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. It was the nature deities and the elementals as well, gnomes, undines, sylphs, and salamanders (apparently not the salamanders from biology class but […]

0129 Ode to Junk - dave with hoses

Why do I have more leaky garden hoses than anyone else in the entire village? It’s not only because I’m a gardener but also because I absolutely adore stuff that other people have thrown away. It’s all free! I love trash picking the way some people love major league baseball, or ballet, or Sudoku. I […]

0079 Having Enlightenment - einstein

Decades ago, I had a friend, an intellectual, a fellow American, who knew a lot about India, its religions, its obscure languages, its culture. He once declared to me, Americans want to possess enlightenment. This insight was so accurate that it has stuck with me all these years. I can’t pretend that I haven’t gone […]

0070 Mothership Report - nde-1

Last Sunday night the Mothership ride was a more-than-interesting trip, indeed. As host Dobie Maxwell would say, there was a good vibe. Good vibe, good energy, good chemistry. I had originally intended to do part of the first hour but ended up staying until the flight was over at midnight. I’m glad I did. Guest […]

In pursuit of spiritual discovery, let’s take a look at a couple of four letter words. Of course, THE four-letter word, the F-word, is a word so Bad that we need another word to describe it. When we say the F-word everybody knows what we mean. Moreover, we all know the word itself (the word […]

My credentials for spouting off about the spiritual realm are limited compared to others who have undergone deep study and rigorous discipline to arrive at spiritual truths. No PhD here, no ashram experience, no Master in the flesh who showed me the Way. Nevertheless, being human, I have no qualms about saying how I think […]

If you read my most recent past post you know that I have little enthusiasm for New Year’s resolutions. Hope is another matter. I do have two hopes for the new year. At the very least, hope makes us feel better when we’ve got a headache (hope in pharmaceuticals), when we’ve lost our wallet (hope […]
