(1) Comments | Posted March 31, 2014 | 11:46 AM

A man gives his life to uphold a system of representative democracy only then to be rejected by it, by his home, his people; by the very system he sought to serve. While there are many magnificently democratic systematics we've established, we have, nevertheless, clearly developed a pathological process of...

The Reincarnating Humble-bee

Breath -- and he is inextricably rewoven into eternity, ideated as an aperture through which light shines. Upon a closer look he appears as a portal of consciousness, taking on guises that sometimes even seem not to be light at all. And upon a closer look still; he appears as...

Manifesting the Moon

(3) Comments | Posted September 27, 2010 | 5:51 PM

Deep into a journey on the evening of the last full moon, between theta and delta, I heard, "melt into eternal uni-verse," and then, "deus factus sum." Later I woke in the night saying aloud, "a beautiful aspect of nonduality is the rebirth of duality." What occurs in the nonlinear...

You Are Magnificent

Standing, thinking, operating or doing in any way with the sense of existing entirely as a separate entity is suicide to the presence of rhythm, is illusory attachment to the separate self -- is all fine and is part of the path of evolutionary life. Yet it is an arduous...

Letting Go to Hold On

(2) Comments | Posted August 24, 2010 | 3:00 PM

A poetic commentary on culture, sex, freedom, judgment, ecstasy and evolution:

Truthfulness Is the Last Taboo

Truthfulness Is The Last Taboo: A short poem I texted to myself in the checkout line at Whole Foods, for another me in some other way -- here, now, or before and beyond time.

"what's happening?"

I don't know what's happening... but what's really going on: writers, like...

(10) Comments | Posted April 14, 2010 | 2:03 PM

Intuition is the awareness of something that transcends you, that is beyond you - sometimes a subtle potentiality of second sight, telling you where you ought to go. It can come as an offering from your propensity, your destiny, your soul. Courage is the sure hand by which the potential...

Sweaty Sex and Alan Watts

(3) Comments | Posted December 23, 2009 | 10:06 AM

In a conversation about the world's major religions, and contextually then about Zen - we were discussing Alan Watts and a friend said, "You know, Watts was just making this stuff up." I couldn't help but sense a fragment of disenchantment with this author who was one of few that...

Q: It takes tremendous discipline to be so fit, what motivates you?

SS: I'm hungry, hungry for life, hungry to feel, hungry to do. It just feels right. If you look at your hands, these hands, they were meant to DO things with - to work, to play, to struggle,...

Feeling Pain?

Feeling pain?

The Overhuman

What are you doing with your life?

I was never more unfulfilled than when I had no sense of direction. You can create happiness in moments, but fulfillment only comes from challenging yourself to rise to your potential, to test and develop skills and strengths -- ones that you intuit...
