A video journal about my particular journey through life.
Let it be insightful for you, if it feels right.
A Natural Life and our efforts to complicate it
Saturday Morning Web Cast
We begin to look at our life in earnest. The perplexities course through our bodies as feelings and moods, and every facet seems separate, disconnected and apart from the other.
Saturday Evening Web Cast
What is this "meeting in truth" for but to throw off a numbness to life that we have constructed out of inherited fear. Doesn't that sum up the collective drama of the human species?
Rounding out the Full weekend with Canela
Our 4th meeting Sunday Morning
I presented my insight into the root of numbness
I keynoted Sunday with a description of human violence which created quite a stir, even with Canela. Normally we think we are in a "special satsang space" that should remain sanctified. How can that separateness be real, and how could any separateness be justified with non-duality? Yet we do it all the time. I have a lot of irritation around this subject.
Our 5th meeting Sunday Afternoon
I found myself on the speaking couch with my wife
I said some things that, believe it or not, I have never been able to get out or get received before. Later I found a great weight had lifted from my shoulders and around my neck. I think that Iole and I will be totally different with each other, but now I will be in AU for 90 days and will not so directly see that evidence.

Stephen Silha, Omission isn't Holy
Top Down Journalism has Failed
Truth is never spoon fed, but only discovered. Dialogue journalism as in a round table discussion, without moderation or manicuring.
Brad Scott, What is Love of Truth?
Seekers have some Idea What's Coming
But the surprise is that we really don't know.

Can A Wisdom Teaching be both enlightening and also relevant to our mind-made society? Can we be compassionately engaged with mankind and still know the peace of our true unalterable selves? How possibly could it not be so?
Being "Totally Received" by Vishrant
There is a very obvious feeling in being received by another. Yes, there are boundries there, but in this receiving they do not get broken nor challenged. Even if they get crossed (whatever boundries I am talking about) they don't ring an alarm.
Perhaps I thought that I could guide this conversation in another way. You can see how it starts slower than usual. Guide it by not guiding it. Just some sillyness coming into play. (Lighting is weird because Vishrant was darkly lit so I made myself too light.)

Bhashkar Perinchery in Chicago Oct 2011
Reminding us that time and the seasons, along with many other perceptions are only of the planet earth. In the eternity of deep space what time is there or what movement exists without the reference of our revolving planet? How is it that what we know so surely, is only grounded on this earth?
David Rivers, Yoga of Service, act on it
Let your experience of awareness inform your daily living. That is what I have been wanting to say. Too many seem to say let your experience of awareness substitute for your daily living. Vast testimony shares that would be a very dry and dead life.
On the question of what practice to follow, David says "Jump to enlightened living." Why not take the direct route?
