Walking With Joy

These days, I’m choosing to live my life in a very different way than the way I was raised. No longer do I think of my physical body as something separate from life, as a discrete object that needs to be defended and protected from the insults and problems of a cruel and dangerous world. I’ve shifted my inner attention beyond this body, into the eternal realm of infinite life itself. By doing so, I’m gradually coming to know myself as that which animates this physical body.

Across the beach lay scattered bits of flotsam that had been tossed up by the sea. I saw enormous logs whose edges had been softened by their journey, along with...

Relinquishing Pursuit of Absolute Truth

Relinquishing the Pursuit of Absolute Truth For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by language. Words, I’ve come to realize, are much like the individual colors on an artist’s palate. We mix them together to create images inside our own minds with varying degrees of focus, passion, talent, skill and success. We then we gift our words to others, hoping they’ll be able to deconstruct and reformulate them as images inside their own minds, and will be able to view the world the way we see it. Like children drawing with crayons and paper, we offer our word pictures to others and...
