The Buddha was once asked if he was a god to which he replied “No.” “Are you a wizard, then?” “No.” “Well, are you a man?” “No” he said. Confused […]

Control

Life regularly spins out of control, beyond my ability to keep it in check. Road blocks appear from nowhere or I look around my self and realize that I have […]

In search of truth

The further along the difficult path of spirituality I started long ago the more clear it has become that the answers I seek are less likely to be found among […]

Metta

In order that I may understand the path to peace: Let me be able, upright, and authentic, impeccable with my word, gentle and caring. Let me be content and easily […]

Life is for the Living

I often talk about “Now” as being the only time we ever have without really addressing the bigger question: How much time do we really have? That question can be […]

Life is a Journey

  “People are hypocrites” she proclaims. “No one lives the life they want.” I have said those same words myself, or something similar, though it probably contained expletives and self […]
