My blogs and podcasts are not intended to just provide facts and concepts. They are meant to be experiential. What is truth? How can it be found? And more importantly, how can it be lived—naturally, spontaneously? Here we hold up a mirror, inviting you to cast your gaze within—to see what lies “beyond the looking glass”—within the crystal ball. To listen, please click here.
No, we do not need to get cosmic to consider this. Yet, at the same time, everything is transgradient, i.e., permeates all levels of life and nature. Dogmatic perspectives undermine wisdom. Humility is the flip side of wisdom. There is a lot to look at here: Judgement, simplistic reasoning, karma, oblivion, etc. We can explore many facets of the diamond of life by considering the simple question: “Why is California Burning?”. Ancient secrets reveal deeper knowledge. You may want to ask yourself what you would say before listening. To listen, please click here.
Starting in childhood and going on throughout your life, everywhere you turn, perspectives have been pushed upon you. What do you believe and why? Where do you look to find true wisdom? How can anyone truly free their mind? And what does that actually mean? What is true freedom? Is the attempt of freedom simply rebellion for rebellion’s sake? To listen to the podcast, please click here.
So here we get to the crux of the matter called life. Where do your thoughts, your emotions, your beliefs and your convictions come from? What is that Inner Voice? What is it comprised of? The happiest, most fulfilled and wisest people in the world are those who have a healthy relationship with their Inner Voice. So how to cultivate that healthy relationship?

The nature and structure of our universe is explained in great depth in the Vedic Literature. However, it is not appreciated or understood by the modern paradigm identity. Until not so long ago, people thought the sun and planets revolved around the earth. Vedic science knew better thousands of years ago. Also there are ancient architectural structures we can not duplicate even today. Yet we prefer to believe UFOs built them rather than believe ancient civilizations knew things we do not. Here we explore this fascinating topic. Fasten your seat belts! To listen, please click here.
The world today has become more critical, more skeptical and more analytical. As a result, even our children have a hard time accepting an age old spirituality based upon simple faith. At first glance that can seem to be unfortunate. However, it is actually a call for a spirituality based upon a sophisticated understanding of life, of existence and of what God actually is. What atheists mean by ‘God’ is a God I do not believe in. Interestingly enough, many religions share that same definition of God. The only difference is that atheists don’t believe in it and the religious do.
Personally, I do not believe in that popular definition that atheists reject and many religions embrace. However, I certainly am committed to a deep understanding of spirituality and of God. It is heartfelt as well as rational. It does not ask me to defy reason; nor does it ask me to deny a personified source of life and existence. It is consistent with all the laws of physics I know. And furthermore, that understanding precludes irrational tangents, convoluted thinking, emotional denials based upon narrow mindedness, refusal to acknowledge new discoveries in any and all fields of science, and loss of dedication to common sense.
It is an understanding that satisfies both the heart and mind. There is no burying ones head in the sand. It does not abuse rationality with a rationalization to behave irrationally. Rather it leads to ever deepening understandings of life and existence. It enables the heart to soar like a kite stabilized by the tail of reason. Without that tail, the kite just spins in irrational indulgences. Spirituality then just becomes a flight of fancy.
A deeper understanding replaces blind faith with knowledge, while at the same time, pointing in the direction of an ever deepening understanding. Throughout history, many great spiritual teachers have offered that deeper knowledge, however it often slips through the fingers of even the religious. The path is a razors edge of discernment. By discernment I mean not just of the mind but also of the heart; in other words common sense and wisdom. In this age of insistence upon instant gratification, few are willing to follow this path of discernment. And of those few, many slip off on tangents somewhere along that razors edge. In those instances, whatever level of understanding is there is simply misused as an excuse, a justification, to go off into a fairy land of escapism.
The deeper understanding we are talking about here is rooted in human evolution—a physiological and psychological development of consciousness, of awareness. It is an evolution, a refinement, a culturing, of the heart and mind. It is far more challenging than, for example, learning to play the violin or getting a Phd. It requires a steady hand on the rudder and a keen eye to avoid personal issues, conditioned responses, distractions, judgments, biases, idealized notions, or temptations of tangential easy ways out along the way. It leads not to a paradigm identity but rather to a refined state of awareness, of physiology. It does not impose narrow minded beliefs but rather frees the inner spirit, the inner wisdom, the inner Divinity, the inner Knowledge that dwells deeply within us all.
Here we explore the arena which should be the first thing we ever learn, but remains the unaddressed proverbial elephant in the room. It applies to everything (yes, everything) in life (from personal relationships to notions of science, law, UFOs, BLM, war and peace—any topic you can imagine!). What ingredients go into the world we create for ourselves? Everything lies in the balance. From early childhood to yesterdays evening news, we have been bombarded with what to think and feel. But when will people learn how to think and feel wisely and coherently, with a vision as broad as the nature of life itself? When will we ever learn? To listen, please click here.
Integration of heart and mind at the depth of your being: that is the spiritual path in a nutshell. Yet the balance is delicate and it is easy to slip off the razors edge along the way. Though the knowledge is eternal, the manner in which it is expressed must change eternally to interface with the mindset of the time. Here we go into the delicacy of the knowledge and how easily it slips through the fingers of even the devout. To listen, please click here.
|From the decorum of human decency to dehumanizing indoctrination, we explore what humanity is and has become–how we got here and where we can go; where we must go, from here. To listen to the podcast, please click here.|
