The Universe Around Us

It is a very historically recent event that human beings feel that they are seperate from nature or the world and can somehow control it.  That they have the right to safety and peace in their lives and that anything disturbing this is an intrusion or an assault.  But this is all an illusion.  We…

Today is the beginning of the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Black Water Dragon.  I’m really excited about this year because as we mature through this growth spurt of industrialization and all the damage that teen behavior has caused us and the planet, we are beginning to recreate our world by remembering the…
