A Reminder: We’re still on the “Pale Blue Dot”

“There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

Viruses, Masks, and Spirituality

Since March, my roommate (adult daughter) and I, have mostly quarantined. We go out when we need groceries, trying to limit that to once a week. On Fridays we get a “cheat meal” from a local restaurant. Early in the pandemic, we masked up right away, well before local mandates…

It’s Okay to Let Go of Outdated Beliefs

Recently in meditation, I was shown this idea… Sometimes we want to hold on to beliefs so tightly, wrapping them around us like a second skin. We believe, or rather know (because we’re not “knowing” anything else at the moment), that we cannot live without this layer. When in fact,…

Those Who Greet Us at the End of “The Tunnel of Light”

I did a reading for a friend recently. He has always been interested in death and the afterlife, working in the medical field, and even a hospital morgue when he was younger. He has studied near death experiences (also known as NDE’s), and has tried to learn everything he can…

From the Inside Out

Diet and Psychic Work I had an accidental experiment recently. I’ve been eating significantly less (as in almost no) sugar for the past month. Last week, I went off the rails for about 3 – 4 days, and the week really sucked. I had insomnia, insane mood swings, and an…

Belief is in the Eye of the Believer

I failed chemistry (the teacher was boring), but I love physics – the laws and the theories (and the sexy mad scientist-types). Physics tells the story of us through time and space; much like sacred texts tell the story of us for the religious. Your truth is yours alone, and…

You Will Always Be

James Joule came up with the Law of Conservation of Energy. This law states that energy may neither be generated nor demolished hence the sum of all the energies in the system is a constant.  Knowing this, we must understand that we will live forever in some form or another. Energy…

December 21, 2012: A New Age (not necessarily the hippie, crystal-wearing kind)

Ok, before you put REM’s “End of the World” song on repeat starting at midnight tonight, you should probably know a few things about tomorrow (December 21, 2012)… Not only is tomorrow the winter solstice, but it is also considered (by many) to be the beginning of a new age…

The Genius of Thought (And the Search for the Unseen)

I was perusing my Facebook page, and realized I often put quotables (or memes) on my timeline because I’m a fan of great thinkers and teachers.  Many people may conclude there is an opposition between the thoughts of the scientist and the spiritual guru, but the thinking of the two seemingly-disparate teachers are in…

Karma = Energy Returned

Karma is not fate because humans have free will thus creating their own destiny. Karma is also not punishment or retribution for one’s deeds. Karma is the expression, or consequence, of natural acts; thus, “good karma” and “bad karma” are simply energy returning to the host. Many belief systems, including…

Astrology: A Pseudoscience?

Astrology is a science. Or it least it can be. When given the consideration of a respectable modern study, it can easily be viewed as fact or even universal law through the scientific method.  It is observable and measurable. Experiments, formulation, testing and modification is already a part of astrology.…
