Funny, isn’t it, the things that we think are not spiritual? Why is telling jokes not spiritual? Why is something beautiful—a car, a suit—not spiritual? Why is physical excellence not spiritual?

Imagine someone says to you that there is no God. Life has no point. Is that totally alien to you? Some of us just can't understand that point of view, but I felt that way for a long time.

When I was an atheist, a real God was incomprehensible and absurd to me. And I thought it was my responsibility to convince others of my truth. Ever tried to "get through" to someone with the opposite view? How did that work out for you?

When you hear another say something...

We Are Home Here

ER = EPR

It's taken material science hundreds years to figure out what explorers of inner space learned thousands of years ago.

Every place and time in the 'multiverse' is not only connected, but is always and already available here and now; which part of it manifests depends on your actions.

You might know this about me already, but I get super frustrated with the scientific materialist worldview that dogmatically restrics reality to the surfaces of...

[Last night I discovered an app called Conscious. The app provides daily challenges designed to strengthen one's ability to maintain present-moment conscious awareness - mindfulness training, you could say. Here is today's challenge, and my journal entry about taking it on.]

Challenge: Become aware of moments when you are lost in thinking about the future, whether it's 10 minutes or 2 years from now. Notice how it pulls your attention from the present moment. See the reasons why you...

seasons to cycles and children to men

Posted October 6th, 2015 at 7:24 PM by Tek (This Chance to Be Alive and Breathing)

mind if i post some ramblings here, for all to see? no? i didn't think so. you all are nice people.

there is definitely change in the air. autumn is coming to this hemisphere of our spherical spaceship, yes; deeper cycles are also coming around, i think.

Of the many dreams I recall having the night of Tues 10 Feb, one was lucid. In this dream, I tried twice to manipulate the scenery and died both times as a result. Died in the dream, that is; I'm not a zombie blogger guys don't panic.

I was on a farm, standing next to a red barn. There were those tube metal fences around, which formed several enclosures. In the area were a lot of chickens roaming around, a few hens but mostly roosters. As I saw them, I couldn't help but make clucking...
