Living the Future, Living Brahman

Living Brahman we are organized to live timelessly, less wear and tear. Healthy mental and physical habits, fewer desires, not out of restraint but from balance, and a harmless karma that even translates to one’s physical possessions, weird as that seems… Life is mostly gentle, even, and long lasting. The most powerful driver for thisContinue reading “Living the Future, Living Brahman”

Manifesting Our Fears – “Invaders From Outer Space”

Fear is our response to an influence or influences in which we have neither trust, control, or confidence. This fear shows up in our collective artistic expression and social entertainment as a series of tests, both for ourselves individually, and for the planet as a whole. So many of our TV shows and movies areContinue reading “Manifesting Our Fears – “Invaders From Outer Space””

Man on the ‘Mune: Earning My Sidhis in Rural Missouri, 1979-80

…I applied for the job and was hired. I was 25 years old. The deal was to work and live on-site for a year, building a facility for in-residence courses, and farming strawberries to bring in additional income. The official name was ‘The Kansas City Capitals Project’, or KCCP. In exchange, after six months ofContinue reading “Man on the ‘Mune: Earning My Sidhis in Rural Missouri, 1979-80”

Business As Usual While Living Brahman

World events, or even local events, do not set the narrative or agenda for our lives while living Brahman. At the same time, choosing engagement in any aspect of life is total and complete, played out according to Cosmic life, Infinite life. There are no aspects of human life which can eclipse Totality or Brahman.Continue reading “Business As Usual While Living Brahman”

Surinamese Memoir: Visiting Kourou, Cayenne, and Devil’s Island

I enjoyed Paramaribo (the capital of Surinam), a very laid-back place, during my visit around the time Richard Nixon resigned his presidency, in August of 1974. I had recently turned 20. Dad was serving there as US Consul-General, prior to, and during the transition of Surinam, a former Dutch colony, to it’s full independence. DadContinue reading “Surinamese Memoir: Visiting Kourou, Cayenne, and Devil’s Island”

Living Brahman Brings Global Balance

The hallmark of Unity Consciousness, the highest attainment and development of the Self, is to perceive the world as one’s Self. Universality, Oneness, Unity. We see the universal nature of ourselves reflected in our Reality. However, much as a planet introduces a gravitational bend into open space, so does a subtle distortion occur in UnityContinue reading “Living Brahman Brings Global Balance”

Brahman and Living in Accord with Cosmic Law

Living in accord with Cosmic Law means always choosing good, the least harmful option in every case. As the Cosmos is vast, this cannot be accomplished intellectually, aside from the simple choices we make to avoid the most egregious criminal activity. Most of us are not making consciously bad choices in life, and still theContinue reading “Brahman and Living in Accord with Cosmic Law”

The Mandala of Brahman; Living Past, Present, and Future Success

Living Brahman can be seen and experienced as an ever expanding mandala of Totality. It can then be viewed in two different ways: Initially, the mandala of Totality viewed head-on represents now, the present, and all the richness available to us, emanating from a single source, Mother Divine. This is the creation of space. Next,Continue reading “The Mandala of Brahman; Living Past, Present, and Future Success”

The Path to Brahman: Internship for Cosmic Life

Brahman is all about action. Action in liberation, innocence, and freedom. Just as doctors must go through a rigorous internship, on-site, with little sleep, working on the front lines of peoples’ lives, so do those who live Brahman also go through an internship. A doctor does this to ingrain their medical skills and knowledge, soContinue reading “The Path to Brahman: Internship for Cosmic Life”

Philippine Memoir: Exploring Luzon

”…The climate in Manila was actually hotter than Indonesia, and quite a bit more humid. Just as the sun cracked the horizon, you could feel the strong heat on your skin. As in Indonesia, there were just two seasons, the (hot) dry season, and the (not quite as hot) rainy season, or monsoon. We wouldContinue reading “Philippine Memoir: Exploring Luzon”

Brahman and Building a Reservoir of Silence Within

The culturing and establishment of cosmic Silence, our universal potential accessible within, is a relatively new idea, particularly in the West. With the individualistic paradigm always underpinning our social context, it can be difficult to simply surrender to the growth of consciousness, awareness within, as has been done for generations in India, for example. ThisContinue reading “Brahman and Building a Reservoir of Silence Within”

Indonesian Memoir: Monkeys, Bali, and the Cold War

“…During that trip to Borobudur, we were driving along a forest road again in central Java, and began seeing monkeys swinging in the trees on both sides of the car. We stopped and put bananas on the roof of the car, and rolled up the windows. Soon the monkeys were swarming the car, eating theContinue reading “Indonesian Memoir: Monkeys, Bali, and the Cold War”

Brahman and Surrender

Brahman is surrender, and Brahman is also abiding paradox. Brahman surrenders Totality and all aspects of Totality. However this is not the simple release of relative life we feel when we wake up to our universal and infinite nature. We retain our responsibility for completion, even as we surrender ourselves in Brahman. Life is oursContinue reading “Brahman and Surrender”

The Cottage Near Bogor, Indonesia

From 1959 to 1964, I lived with my family in Djakarta (Jakarta), Indonesia, in a white house with a red tile roof, and a flame tree in the front yard. I was there from the time I was five, until we were evacuated back to the US during a serious rebellion, at the age ofContinue reading “The Cottage Near Bogor, Indonesia”

Life in Djakarta, Indonesia, 1959 to 1964 (an excerpt)

In 1959 when I was five years old, we moved from Spain to Djakarta (now Jakarta), Indonesia, as a continuation of my father’s career as a Foreign Service Officer in the US Diplomatic Corps, US Department of State. The picture accompanying this post is a painting of a puja ceremony held on Bali. This paintingContinue reading “Life in Djakarta, Indonesia, 1959 to 1964 (an excerpt)”

Quotes from Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev

I woke up this morning thinking about Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev, and my long association with Him. Going on-line I found some of His quotes (below) which really ‘speak’ to me. The whole experience is a treasured one, to learn about Reality from someone so wise, compassionate and powerful. One thing I had toContinue reading “Quotes from Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev”

Nance Canyon Near Paradise, California

I was up early today and decided to take a walk down the hill behind the house. The pond is there, but I went south instead, following Nance Canyon. A lot of area yet to explore. After returning I went over to the pond and was happy to see the Canada goose that has takenContinue reading “Nance Canyon Near Paradise, California”

Brahman and Immortality

Immortality is not the desire to live forever, fulfilled. It is deeper than that, transcending any desire. Simply put, the ability to live an unlimited life is a profound symptom of purification. Purification means no contamination or disease; perfect mental and physical health. This immortality is also not a static situation. It is the reversalContinue reading “Brahman and Immortality”

‘Temple Dog’ – A Musical Exploration from 2009 to 2018

Having been a visual artist all my life and a music lover, technology finally bridged the gap for me, having never learned to play an instrument or read music (those guitar lessons at 13 don’t really count). The result was being able to compose and publish ten albums under the name, ‘Temple Dog’ (not ‘TempleContinue reading “‘Temple Dog’ – A Musical Exploration from 2009 to 2018”
