Today’s Walk Through Nance Canyon (Part 2)

At the pond after shooting the video, I took pictures of the turtle and bullfrogs, but the real treat was further up the canyon. As I was walking the trail, something to the right caught my eye. It was two black-tailed does about 50 feet away, always a quiet thrill to see. One was pregnant.Continue reading “Today’s Walk Through Nance Canyon (Part 2)”

Today’s Walk Through Nance Canyon (Part 1)

I first walked down to Nance Pond taking my tripod and camera, then set my tripod on a flat spot near the edge of the pond. Next, I began recording a video with sound to capture the birdsong. Red-winged blackbirds are the melodic ones, with the cooing of doves in the background. Also a fewContinue reading “Today’s Walk Through Nance Canyon (Part 1)”

Visiting Nance Pond in May of 2022

For a small pond of about an acre, Nance Pond has a large watershed and stays full year-round. There is always a family of creatures there. Before the 2018 Camp Fire we even had black bears. I visit at least once a week to see who is around, take photos, change out my gamecam chips,Continue reading “Visiting Nance Pond in May of 2022”

Flights Above Paradise

The Chico Municipal Airport (CIC) which includes a Cal Fire Air Attack Base, is twelve miles away as the crow flies. We are near many flight paths at various altitudes, so it is a great place to capture pictures of aircraft of all types. Please enjoy these recent photos:

From CC to Supreme Brahman, the Distance From Liberation to Fulfillment

“We are not satisfied with peace alone. There has to be prosperity, there has to be affluence, there has to be fulfillment in life, not just peace.” – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Cosmic Consciousness (CC) is our permanent awakening to our eternal, infinite nature. It is our eternal liberation, unchaining us from time and space, fromContinue reading “From CC to Supreme Brahman, the Distance From Liberation to Fulfillment”

Living With the Finest Levels of Creation

“You have heard the saying that all that there is in the universe is within man? And that is it. The subtlest strata of our existence, that state of glow, that we experience, is the field of God. And from there comes to us the direct communion with those celestial Gods. And this is whatContinue reading “Living With the Finest Levels of Creation”

What Happens When We Die After Attaining Cosmic Consciousness (CC)?

I was recently contacted by someone wanting clarification around Maharishi’s statements that once Cosmic Consciousness (CC), the fifth state of consciousness, is reached, and we are enjoying the endless diversity of relative life supported by the deep continuous silence of the Absolute, that no more earthly lifetimes would be provided, and even the taking ofContinue reading “What Happens When We Die After Attaining Cosmic Consciousness (CC)?”

Happy Mother’s Day 2022!

It has turned out to be a great day for birds. All of these showed up in less than an hour, with the dove always roosting at the front door. Happy Mother’s Day to all! Please enjoy these five birds from today; a mourning dove, acorn woodpecker, Anna’s hummingbird, hooded oriole, and wild turkeys:

An Active Spring Day at Nance Pond

I went down in the canyon around noon today to swap out two gamecam chips, and took my camera. I was rewarded by several uncommon sights, notably a pair of turtles, a vulture, a starling feeding in the pond, and a red-tailed hawk. Please enjoy these 12 photos 🙂

Supreme Brahman Lives Eternal Fulfillment

‘Eternal Fulfillment’ is a phrase we don’t hear much these days, though it is our human birthright. What does eternal fulfillment even mean? It means being naturally fulfilled in every moment, waking, dreaming, and sleeping. No doing, just 100 percent fulfillment. Ironically, the biggest barrier to such a state is the success we achieve inContinue reading “Supreme Brahman Lives Eternal Fulfillment”

Purity, Divinity, Sattva – Enlightenment’s Key Ingredient

The three elemental components of relative life are motion, persistence, and purity, also known as the three gunas of rajas, tamas, and sattva. Sattva is a natural and balanced component of every living thing, providing the silent guidance and creative intelligence of Divinity. As human beings we are in a unique cosmic position, interpolated betweenContinue reading “Purity, Divinity, Sattva – Enlightenment’s Key Ingredient”
