…linking intellect and intuition…
Who We Are What We Are

It is truly amazing.  In just the half week since I decided to put some effort into getting my writings out there, I have placed an ad on Craigslist, gotten responses from around the world, corresponded with at least a dozen people who were interested in the job, narrowed down and prioritized what I need to have done, arranged for a meeting with a programmer, hired a graphic designer, done some editing, and blogged twice [counting this one].  And that’s not counting a yoga class, a Sanskrit consciousness class, and swimming a 1/2 mile.  I’ve also slept pretty well at the end of the day.

What I choose to do produces the results.  That’s why I know that human evolution is voluntary, because we can choose to accept New Consciousness or not, which will determine whether we survive as a species or not.  Our choice.  We will face the results of our actions in either event.  Good luck!


I can’t believe that it’s been five months since my last post.  Where was I?  What was I doing?  Why wasn’t I doing this?  No answer.  I was just hanging back and enjoying life.  And that is the purpose of life after all, right?  I guess you could call it laziness if you wanted to.

In my own defense, I’m often torn between feeling that the Oneness certainly doesn’t need me for the future of humanity to evolve as it should … and on the other hand… feeling that all these insights I have been given over my lifetime cannot be for this one little piece of meat alone.  So… if not me, who?  If not now, when?

Ergo, yesterday I posted an ad on Craigslist for a Website and Social Media Genius.  So, if you have responded to my ad and been referred to this site… welcome.   Know that I believe that the ‘I am’  that you feel inside you and the ‘I am’ that I feel inside me is really the same “I AM”. There really is a primal universal Oneness that we each experience through our own unique filters and adjectives.

And when enough of us know this, it will be an evolutionary step as big as when human mind evolved out of animal mind, it should lead us into a world of perpetual peace and universal understanding, and religion and science will actually agree on something… [although they might not agree on what to call It].

And that, my friend, is the message I want to spread.  Feel free to check out the site.  Are you still with me?


“New Consciousness – the evolutionary phenomenological awareness that individual ‘I’ consciousness is the primal Universal Oneness experienced through unique filters and adjectives.”

That’s what I just wrote on a neurological test study form that asked if I meditate and if so, what kind of meditation do I do.  It took me a while to come up with that, trying to make it clear, trying to keep it short, changing and editing as I went, but, you know, big words aside, that might not be a bad little 10 second elevator pitch for what it’s all about.  Ever better.


I can’t remember when congressional hearings were such fodder for gatherings at the local tavern… but these days they are.  Drink in hand, we take off from work and sit on the edge of our pub seats, not hoping to see our team to win the championship, but waiting to hear how the current official on the hot seat will deflect the senator’s questions. And we watch the late night talk shows and groan at the embarrassing but all too true jokes made about those who run our government.  Other than Watergate, at least in my memory, never has the craziness in Washington grabbed the attention of the masses like it has since #IdiotTrump has become president.  Wish us luck.


Who would have thunk it, but today I turn 77.  This little piece of meat, this combination of loving thoughts and snarky comments, this fabulous machine that can take all kinds of inputs from Trader Joe’s and turn them into usable fertilizer, this musician, writer, husband, father, grandfather, yogi, chaplain, Scrabble player, cribbage player, and baseball fan is another year older.  Who would have thunk it?

Will there be any difference?  Will I be nicer, or kinder, or more worthy of taking up space on the planet?  This time next year, if I make it that far, will someone somewhere be grateful that I did? That’s hard to say.  I do know that I will continue living according to my three rules of life and we’ll just have to see where it comes out.  1. Be Happy.  2. Be Kind.  3. That’s It.  How bad can that be?


I just signed an online petition, along with at least a half a million other people, that says “We, the undersigned people of the United States of America, commit to mitigating climate change and sign onto the Paris climate change agreement. ”  See… #IdiotTrump is bringing us all together, just like he is supposed to do.   [I’ve included the link below in case you want to sign it, too.]



So today, Pres. Trump said that the United States will back out of the Paris Accord limiting carbon emissions in order to stop global warming.  He either doesn’t understand the concept or he feels that economic interests, particularly his own, are worth risking the future of the planet.  It’s truly amazing that one person can have so much power and the ability to negate what took years of work and negotiation from so many other people to achieve.

Equally interesting is the fact that when the next president comes into office and wishes to renew our connection with the rest of the world, we will no longer be in the forefront of the anti global-warming effort, but will have to sit in the back of the room watching as others design and run the show.  Far from Making America Great Again, #IdiotTrump has taken America down a notch on the world stage. Make America An Outsider might be a good slogan for what he has done for us on the international stage.

Meanwhile, I will continue to look for the positive in his presidency.  Causing the average person to look for and find strength within one’s own being is a good place to start.


The big change has just been made on our website.  The old administrator has left, and with the help of my wife and my son, both of whom know how to work with websites better than I do, I have taken over, and will run things from here.  I will have to learn WordPress, will have to learn how to make things look on line the way they look in my head, and how to be patient with computers who don’t always want to do things the way I want them to do.  It is a challenge but worth the effort.  There is a lot to share with you, on a personal level, on a national level, and on a cosmic level.  I will give it my best shot.  Looking back years from now, I hope it will have proved to be of value.


Handbook of the New Consciousness has just been entered in an international challenge put out by OpenIdeo and a philanthropic organization to handle global challenges at the intersection of peace, prosperity, and planet in radically new ways.  I offered my work as a way of Teaching the inner Oneness that connects us to the universe and each other… a necessary evolutionary step for the survival of our species. In honoring the other entrants I wrote…

Today’s world is a hotbed of hatred and fear, terror and inhumanity.  While any individual plan to bridge peace, planet, and prosperity may succeed with proper support and dedicated local leadership, at least for a while, the potential for worldwide disaster still exists without a major change in how humans view each other and the planet on which we live.

Unfortunately, I believe that to be true.  Until we truly learn that there is only One of us here in different forms, survival of humanity is an iffy thing at best.  Who knows… bringing it to the very edge could all be part of the larger plan.


Well, whether you missed me or not, I’m back!  The blog has been moved to a new host and all we lost was one post and several weeks.  I can’t even remember what was said in that post, except an affirmation that I’m committing myself to getting this work out there this year one way or another. So hang on, here we go again.  By the way, on my hospice rounds today I ran into one of those inspirational quotes in a nursing home elevator that went something like this.  “You never know just how much is possible until you cross the boundary into the impossible.”   Let’s review this a year from now and see if we’ve crossed over or not.
