The Message of the Message

There have been times when I’ve gotten a kick out of two people talking at cross purposes to each other.  You know, they make comedy skits out of this stuff.  You think you’re both talking about the same thing but you’re not or you think you’re talking about something completely different and it ends up…

Want Vs. Need

Every have those moments when you have too many things on your mind, too many things to do in the day, too many things in your hands, and if you could just get everything to behave then you could get the keys out without spilling the …#&@^#$(&^#(%  *insert adult temper tantrum here* There are many…

One Is Silver and the Other Gold

There is a huge bias in the spiritual community towards soul groups, soul mates, and having known people for many previous lifetimes.  We all want to be appreciated, to feel connected, to be unconditionally loved, to be approved of and to have relationships which are alive and active and easy.  No one likes to work…

Self-Delusion

from The Thirteen Petalled Rose by Adin Steinsaltz There is another and deeper problem: that of self-delusion.
