A forum member recently shared the Carl Sagan quote, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”  Sagan is credited with popularizing that slight rephrasing of an older quote by Marcello Truzzi:  “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.” These quotes assume an objective universe, which is a rather biased way of looking at reality — and not particularly accurate.  […]

Reality and Perception

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Our shared physical reality is the most common state of reality we experience, but it certainly isn’t the only one.  Our nighttime dreams are another state, as are astral experiences, near-death experiences, and out-of-body experiences. I regard these different levels of reality as being at different frequencies or energy levels.  It’s like tuning into different TV channels.  Physical […]

Imagine you’re having a lucid dream.  This means you’re lying in bed having a dream, and while still within […]

Life on Purpose

Friday, September 14th, 2007

I recently read a book called Life on Purpose: Six Passages to an Inspired Life by Dr. Brad Swift. This is a truly excellent book on how to discover your life purpose. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to gain clarity with respect to their core reason for being here. On Amazon.com this book currently […]

Achieving Peak Motivation

Monday, August 13th, 2007

Several people have asked me about the origins of the polarity concept I began exploring last year.  Where did it come from?  How does it relate to personal growth? These ideas actually stemmed from some journal entries I wrote in 2002.  At the time I was asking myself questions like these:  What is the deepest source of ongoing motivation, such that if we […]
