Singing the Song of Love

Flying through the windows of our mind reveals to us our true nature, our interconnectedness with each other, with all living species and our living environment. Oneness becomes completely obvious. It is then that we know and in the knowing we realize that any action taken by anyone impacts the whole and that whole includes the original actor. Thus, the ultimate recipient of all that we do is our own self.

You Must Change Your Life: Capitalism and the Evolving Dharma

You Must Change Your Life: Capitalism and the Evolving Dharma

We’re clearly at an inflection point in the Western dharma right now: the last twenty years of secular, mainstreamed mindfulness will likely be nothing compared to the next twenty—not with healthcare, technology, and even the military coming around to the hard data on mindfulness’s effectiveness. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? On the one hand, meditation might just save the world, and mainstreaming it—vulgarizing it, even—is how that will happen. On the other hand, what will be the price of this wider embrace? Just how crass, cheesy, or watered-down will things have to get?

Be Here Now

Be Here Now

As everyone knows well, Eckhart Tolle has enjoyed great success with his Power of Now books. This is a man who experienced a mystical state in which the individual self fell away and revealed to him a far greater reality beyond, a vision which Tibetans refer to as simply ‘The View’.

If you’ve backpacked through South America or have a keen interest in psychotropic medicine, you probably know I’m talking about ayahuasca.

Let Go Of Me, Ego

Ahhhh how glorious the universe is, in every single moment. I wonder about the times when I do not realize how divine each moment of being is, and I am acutely aware of a common denominator. Indeed, the greatest hindrance to my being is none other than myself, the ‘I’, the ego mind.

Our Dual Nature – The Arrow Within the Circle

Our Dual Nature – The Arrow Within the Circle

Take a moment to become as aware as you can of yourself, your body, the words in front of you, your immediate surroundings. Now imagine that, instead of perceiving in the normal way a number of discrete objects – hands, display device screen or paper and so forth, you are seeing at the subatomic level.

Meditation – An Introduction by Ram Dass

Meditation is basic spiritual practice for quieting the mind and getting in touch with our deeper Self, the spirit. Meditation provides a deeper appreciation of the interrelatedness of all things and the part each person plays. The simple rules of this game are honesty with yourself about where you are in your life and learning and listening to hear how it is. Meditation is a way of listening more deeply, so you hear how it all is from a more profound place.
