Last Pictures of Comet NEOWISE and One Each of Saturn and Jupiter

Here are my four final pictures of the Comet NEOWISE taken July 18th, before it left us for awhile, due back in 6,800 years (all 60s. time exposures using the Panasonic LUMIX). Last night I was also able to take my clearest photo of Saturn yet. I had the Nikon set manually (f/8 and ISOContinue reading “Last Pictures of Comet NEOWISE and One Each of Saturn and Jupiter”

Living Brahman – Global Resolution Beyond Faith

Many of us are pummeled these days by the fear, uncertainty, and doubt of our global mindset. Leadership is absent amid a sea of conflicting voices, and each news story trumpets a further immersion into chaos. From a legitimate Cosmic perspective this seems quite strange. Sure, there is a time now when we are learningContinue reading “Living Brahman – Global Resolution Beyond Faith”

UAV (Drone) Flying Nance Canyon

Here is my first video (3:43) flying in Nance Canyon with the Mavic Pro 2 drone (shown below), with Gail as spotter using binoculars. After about 400 feet out, even against a clear sky, the drone is impossible to see unaided. The video is 4K quality and too big to upload directly, so I haveContinue reading “UAV (Drone) Flying Nance Canyon”

Living Brahman – Walking the Talk

Cosmic life, living Brahman, has two components; full Cosmic perception and ability, and full earthly life and ability. The two are inseparable, and when living Brahman, both are lived to completion. Unlike times past, when spiritual knowledge was the exclusive province of the monks and recluses, hidden to maintain its purity, nowadays spiritual knowledge isContinue reading “Living Brahman – Walking the Talk”

Photos: A Deer Looking in the Window, Coyotes on the Game Cam, and Starlink Satellites Crowding the Sky

Here are six recent photos from Paradise – A buck looking in our window yesterday, coyotes from the game-cam at Nance Pond, and a composite shot from last night showing several Starlink (Space-X) satellites in orbit. It is always magic to see the larger animals around here, and celestial objects. About seventy years ago, theContinue reading “Photos: A Deer Looking in the Window, Coyotes on the Game Cam, and Starlink Satellites Crowding the Sky”

Living Brahman – Why the Ego Sees Brahman as Death

The ego, our sense of self sees Brahman as death, because it is in a way. A dissolution of the sense of self into Totality. Of course the ego, anybody’s ego, is necessary as a manager to prioritize what to do next, informed by our state of consciousness. However, guided in time by spiritual evolution,Continue reading “Living Brahman – Why the Ego Sees Brahman as Death”

Living Brahman; Coming Full Circle

A long time after we begin to grow curious about ourselves, we are sub-atomic particles, perhaps electrons, maturing to then inhabit an entire atom, further on, to a molecule of… water, a warm excitation rising to form with unimaginable numbers, a great cloud above the earth, and then we fall, for thousands of feet asContinue reading “Living Brahman; Coming Full Circle”

Living Brahman – Defeating Ignorance, and Cherishing Our Cosmic Potential

To defeat ignorance we just see right through it. By definition, ignorance hides in darkness, the somethings we do not yet know about ourselves – we are not yet a complete Reality. So we watch our consciousness move and notice what has changed, in service to know more about ourselves, how to better serve ourContinue reading “Living Brahman – Defeating Ignorance, and Cherishing Our Cosmic Potential”

Living Brahman – Surrender and Expansion Changing Places

Living Brahman, living Cosmic life, is beyond the progression of ‘higher’ states of consciousness. Totality is lived beyond the expansion of spiritual, universal light glimpsed first within, beyond the infusion of light into vigorous activity, including the ultimate refinement of the senses, and the awakening of the deepest values of the heart. Expansion marks theContinue reading “Living Brahman – Surrender and Expansion Changing Places”

Two Photos of Saturn and a Later Rising of Jupiter

I was pleased to be able to take the Saturn photographs, 830 million miles away, as it is tricky to get the right light and focus, even with a tripod (Nikon P900 – ISO 400, 1/60 s., F 6.3, manual focus). My Jupiter and four moons rising video is 2:26 tonight, as I caught JupiterContinue reading “Two Photos of Saturn and a Later Rising of Jupiter”

Living Brahman – Mastering Time and Space

Unlike the depictions in comic books and movies, mastery of time and space doesn’t require a cape, or even a dhoti. 🙂 Even as we transcend our individual universal natures, our Selves, Totality remains itself and Brahman or full enlightenment, lives on the event horizon of Totality. Once we identify with Totality, Cosmic life, andContinue reading “Living Brahman – Mastering Time and Space”

Living Brahman; Balancing Totality

Brahman sustains balance automatically, by bringing the elements of Grace, focus, compassion, flexibility, strength, patience, wisdom, humility, and stamina to every thought and action. However, living Brahman we don’t become automatons, and are ever works in progress. Through every thought and action we take, our awareness and capability of Totality grows ever larger and deeper,Continue reading “Living Brahman; Balancing Totality”

Living Brahman – Fighting for Our Lives

I learned two days ago that a dear close friend passed away of a broken heart. During the day, I heard about two others who had gone earlier in the year, same cause. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and anemia were the medical reasons, though knowing them each so well and their circumstances, each would haveContinue reading “Living Brahman – Fighting for Our Lives”

Living Brahman, Always Bringing Completion

There are many elements that distinguish Brahman, Full Enlightenment, in life. For example living the abiding paradoxes is one; enabling and containing the immensity of Cosmic life, all time and all space. Transcending the Self, the atman, is also a critical watermark of such a life. The practical benefit of this awareness and ability ofContinue reading “Living Brahman, Always Bringing Completion”

Independence Day – Drone Flights

I have recently taken an interest in drone photography and video. These are stills from a flight this evening out to Butte Canyon, and over Nance Pond in back. The equipment is a DJI Mavic Mini, flying close to 400 feet max altitude from a take-off point 1,300 feet above sea level. Speed is aboutContinue reading “Independence Day – Drone Flights”

Brahman and Interdependence

I walked down to the pond yesterday to complete a task I started a few days earlier, picking up bits of broken glass from a bottle broken on the rocks at least several years ago. The glass is quite thick, so not recent. While doing so, I found another broken bottle a few yards awayContinue reading “Brahman and Interdependence”
