Conscious Spirituality

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Let me share some thoughts and ideas about consciously exploring your spiritual side, in the form of questions and answers, with the intention that it may help you explore your own spiritual path. Why spirituality? I use the word spirituality to refer to your current understanding of the entire universe of existence and your role […]

Completing Your Side Quests

Monday, December 28th, 2015

There’s an idea (from Hinduism, I believe) that if you want to dedicate yourself to a path of spiritual awakening, yet some seemingly lower desire keeps nagging at you, then you should go pursue that desire first and get it out of your system. If it takes years to do this, that’s okay. You’ll be […]

Duty

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

This morning I was reading a small portion of The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda and came across this passage: What is duty after all? It is really the impulsion of the flesh, of our attachment; and when an attachment has become established, we call it duty. For instance, in countries where there is no marriage, there is no […]

11 Years of Growth

Monday, November 30th, 2015

As part of my website update project, I planned to spend a day or so cleaning up the first two years of my blog (2004 to 2006). I started blogging with WordPress version 1.x, and blogging was still a young medium in 2004, so I wasn’t sure where to go with it. During those years […]

Would You Sleep With a Married Person?

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

The title assumes of course that the married person isn’t married to you. In light of the recent Ashley Madison revelations, apparently millions of people in North America would have to answer yes to this question. This is a multi-layered question. Let’s peel off some of those layers and look at them individually, so you […]

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 […]
