Prisoners

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

Last night a secure prison transport vehicle crashed near Xenia, Ohio. At last report half of the prisoners were killed in the accident. And there were a lot of injuries. But many of the survivors were able to escape the damaged vehicle and ran off on foot in different directions. Most of the escapees have since been recaptured, but many are still […]

The Forge of Life

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Sometimes I like thinking of life as a forge that molds us and gives us shape and substance as we live. We come into this world like blocks of marble, and we’re sculpted by experience. We can let the forge do its job on its own. But we also have the option to consciously participate […]

How to Be Vegan

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Here’s a primer on how to adopt and enjoy a long-term vegan lifestyle, which I’ve been doing for 18+ years. I’ll include a little advice on transitioning, but since it’s so easy to find good info on that with a simple Google search, I’ll focus more deeply on the long-term aspects of being vegan as opposed […]

Surviving Superintelligence

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Suppose a group of superintelligent aliens came to earth. Or suppose that humans developed some advanced A.I. that’s far beyond our mental and physical abilities. If we could somehow communicate with these beings, what might we say to them? We might be too scared to say anything. We might just run and hide. But if […]

The Spiritual Path of Veganism

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

At the time of this writing, I’ve been vegan for more than 18 years (vegetarian for 22 years). I’ve already written about transitioning to veganism, which I did during the 1990s. This time I’ll share some thoughts and feelings about what it’s like to be vegan as opposed to becoming vegan, especially with respect to living in a […]

The New Conscious Heart Workshop

Friday, March 27th, 2015

I’m happy to announce that we’re now taking registrations for a new 3-day workshop: The Conscious Heart Workshop. Since this workshop is very unique, I decided to create a video to tell you all about it. So please watch the video to learn about CHW and to decide if you want to be there. Here are the […]

Your Own Star Colony

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

My long-term path of exploring personal growth has often felt like repeatedly breaking orbit around a familiar star to go explore elsewhere in the galaxy. Usually this involves three stages: Recognizing that the familiar star is limiting my growth; becoming aware of its constraints Feeling increasingly attracted to new possibilities outside the current star system; […]

Connecting

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

When Rachelle and I were in southern Spain a couple weeks ago, we stayed with some new friends on a three-acre fruit farm. Since the weather was so nice, we spent a lot of time sitting outside, enjoying views of rolling green hills and the city of Malaga down below, while we snacked on fresh avocados and […]

Lifestyle Design Challenges (Video)

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

After the 2015 Lifestyle Design Convention in Zurich, Switzerland, last month, a few of the speakers (including me) got together to record an open conversation about our growth challenges and various other ideas. We ended up with a two-hour video of our chat session, which Kai Christen posted on YouTube a few weeks ago. From left to right […]
