Toward a More Perfect Union

The Wicked Witch of the West, By William Wallace Denslow - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

What if we get our heads together over here in the corner and redesign how the country works from the ground up?

Mistake 4: That I see what you see

If you know where this image came from, please let me know. I want to give credit where credit is due: both to the photographer and the architect.

Mistake 3: Believing there is TRUTH

BBC: Murmuration of Starlings near Gretna.

Many scientists are agnostic or atheist. There are people who swear no human has ever stood on the moon. There are too many religious people who believe their particular religion is the only true religion. All of these people are convinced that their own take on reality is TRUTH. I find a great deal of beauty and wisdom in both Christianity and science as well as in Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, Paganism, and Native American religions, as well as in the disciplines of yoga and astrology. There are pieces of truth in all of them. . . . → Read More: Mistake 3: Believing there is TRUTH

Mistake 2: Thinking that other people know what I need better than I do

garden_3846mooncr

With so many conflicting rules and descriptions of reality, I wondered how other people knew when which rules applied. (Perhaps this is one reason I took so enthusiastically to reading. Books were internally consistent.) I fell into the habit of trying to anticipate what would be expected of me at any given time. And I was wrong more often than not even with the few clues I accumulated over time. . . . → Read More: The First of 12 Mistakes (Lies, Delusions) that Distract(ed) Me from Reality

Astrology: From Judgement to Compassion

Refocusing the Blog

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post. This is because, much though I love yoga, it’s been difficult to focus adequate attention on coming up with new things to say about yoga—especially since there are so many other really fine information sources out there. I will still post occasionally about yoga, but there . . . → Read More: Refocusing the Blog
