Peace

“Peace Now” “Give Peace a Chance!”, “Peace on Earth” without specifics, these declarations make me wince. They are so non-specific as “peace” can look like anything. Please consider[1]this. What bugs you anyway?  That you might pick another’s cause distracts you (not that that’s bad, just different choice of focus). Peace, as I have experienced it in my…

Rugged Love

I love G-d, my Country and Family and am willing to do anything for ‘them’, or was, except kill. Instead, the answer now is –‘I carry a gun and advocate for their ownership’… and ‘open carry in my restaurant’. Or, ‘if you make me submit to you in any way, you’re threatening me and can…

“Because I can”

“Because I can[1]…” There are many things I can’t fathom, nor would want to. The cruelty that people inflict on each other… for some momentary victory, that might leave a bunch of fallout, seems astounding. It’s like watching pigs rutting out in their pen, after eating their young.  Why would someone purposely harm a child…

Fate versus Free Will

We all know that man has “free will”.  Uniquely, he has ability to choose, plan, and decide. While apes have made significant “progress”, as have crows, rats  and every creature in between– and will continue to do so, our human capacity for executive thinking, is the distinct purview of man. At least until now. We all,…

My Thanksgiving story

I started with the expectation of Thanksgiving set by my Aunt Judy (bless her heart). Thanksgiving, even with its historical controversy was, besides Easter, my favorite holiday! Every year there were around thirteen growing to twenty of us a mostly congenial group. With a beautiful formal table with china, crystal, and silver, we’d have like…

Trust Your Breath

I have been deeply observant of spirit for my whole life. It is as if I’d had an N.D.E. (near death experience) and experienced Him in a version of His entirety in my unconscious being, but consciously I couldn’t believe in G-d, let alone state it aloud. I would wince when others would speak of Him.…

Carpe Diem. Seize the day.

Whether one or the other wins, at this point, there will be difficult futures for many, many, many people including the previously disenfranchised. Compared to what the Gulf Wars did to ordinary folks with businesses and practices- all lost when they were abusively deployed boots-on the ground. which took them years to recover, but many…

Atonement, for Yom Kippur

Atonement At-one-ment Being at one in the moment –  All spelled. Ultimately in coherence with the sum of your actions. I give to G-d that I may not be forgotten by Him. The 7-directional meditation I do when times are tough,  can be done in any position, Maybe strongest in full Tadasana  Hands placed firmly…

Pompous

Pompous[1] Never, in my wildest dreams of being a doctor- client -patient, would I ever, ever, ever utter such words, even if mixed in phrases as,  “beautiful” “kiss” “love” (Ok, I channeled, “warrior for love” once…) “Intense and passionate” “You can do whatever you want…” (with dreamy goo-goo eyes) Even if I was in deep trance…
