Have I lived enough?
Have I loved enough?
Have I considered Right Action enough, have I come to any conclusion?
Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude?
Have I endured loneliness with grace?
I say this, or perhaps I'm just thinking it.
Actually I probably think too much.
Then I step…Continue

NASA’s earth day poster
Mary Catherine Bateson writes: Lynn [Margulis] submitted her paper to 15 different journals in 1966 before it was published, by the Journal of Theoretical Biology. It was turned down for going against the prevailing assumption, which came out of Darwin’s writings, that evolution depends on conflict and…Continue

Celebrating Earth Day today and everyday.
One of my favorites.
“The Peace of Wild Things”
by Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake…

« The allegory of the long spoons is a parable that shows the difference between heaven and hell by means of people forced to eat with long spoons. »
« In each location, the inhabitants are given access to food, but the utensils are too unwieldy to serve oneself with. In hell, the people cannot cooperate, and consequently starve. In heaven, the diners feed one another across the table and are sated. »
« Given the same level playing field one group of…Continue

dare i declare that we'll always be one
that in your soul breathes an echo of mine
that our paths will fusion down the line
that this living bond cannot come undone
dare i reveal how we have been misled
by values that want us to be apart
told only a fool could follow their heart
by demons of greed, reason, and hatred
could you forgive me for being doubtful
of accepting the fate of a prophet
and having been of you so…

how many souls lay blinded by that creed
stuck on a rock that's lost in the vastness
fatherless child of mother randomness
the underlying view that fosters greed
satisfied by the laws of mechanics
kindergarten of logic and reason
unfit for the tests of intuition
barred from the master class in holistics
unprepared to see past material
as if fearing fatal delirium
through knowledge of concerns spiritual
yet truth is no stranger to…Continue

I thought you may like this 4minute light show from Iran...
I hope you enjoy it.
i can recall the day when the world fell
and i could only watch in disbelief
as people blamed each other for their grief
before hiding back each inside their shell
from there we edged ever closer to hell
dying nature, fires, foul climes above
divided souls all longing for some love
while minds dreaded for them would toll the bell
and now a plague warns us with its dark chimes
to see we're tied, us threads of the same rope

as i sit on the floor and bow my head
i wonder why my path has led me here
for which purpose must i be rid of fear
that lies in store for me somewhere ahead
no way could i the turns have all foreseen
nor prayed for all of life's given blessings
for the angels would not reveal their wings
until after the time they could be seen
is it a door i hear, a voice, a pace
or only an echo, a whim, a wraith
a breeze, a thought, a threat without a…

now that the truth is out
and edges the windup
say did you really doubt
of where you would end up
just right there where you are
all alone in the night
feeling more fraud than star
and really not that bright
not completely grownup
more bewildered than fine
but still the wait is up
time to come forth and shine
seems you blew your thirties
in healing from your teens
in bending to worries
and in blaming your…

was it not all written
in the divine memoirs
on the nightly heaven
as a pattern of stars
that the worst could happen
at the perfect hour
to rescue the fallen
from haughtiness dour
so that they could in turn
save from the bonfire
their fellow men who burn
in confusion dire
was it not all written
well ahead of the time
in words aptly chosen
metered and set to rhyme
that there's no simple way
