The Mating of Sea Urchins

We each have our identity reflecting our preferences and circumstances. While we would like to believe that we humans are fundamentally alike and designed to live in harmony (as a norm),  the reality is quite the opposite. We are different from one another and finding our harmony is a major challenge.  The myth of human likeness was invented by cultures that required group thinking and cooperation in order to survive physically or economically. The result was the creation of a […]

To the Brink and Back?

We live in near constant tension with our environment.  No two humans are the same. We differ in mind, spirit day-to-day living,  identity parameters, etc. As our differences pervade through our life, we may accumulate to severe differences with another person. It’s really like electricity accumulating while rubbing two materials. It seems that, more often […]

The Goal and the Method

I believe most of us have certain major goals in life that dominate our spiritual operating system and become our life priorities. Goals such as doing good for humanity, loving as much as possible, affording independence to our children,  accumulating all kind of spiritual or tangible wealth, being beautiful, and on and on.  Once our […]

Exploring the Now

You once told me that I live in the now. I mostly agree. I think so do you, and we both value that we do so. Is it so obvious?  The now, if it exists, seems unburdened with the prior and the past, connected only to the enjoyment of the moment. A detachment from other […]

Wondering Around

I set my eyes, ears and feet on new ground as a way of life. I seek to feel home anywhere and nowhere. If there is a goal to it, it has to be generating a larger flow of emotions and thoughts, absorbing new visions into some universality that I know exist but must be constantly […]

Living the Good Life

Living the good life is a dear goal for all of us. For me, it requires reconciling oneself with our Self and our environment.  Our Self is a difficult to assess and an unproven concept that rules our spiritual, intellectual, emotional and all other aspects of our life that are not constrained by our body.  […]

My Weaknesses

Writing about my own weaknesses is a little like looking into a rear view mirror and seeing the road ahead. Weaknesses are things that anyone with a modicum of narcissism  is officially backing away from,  yet, the biggest weaknesses tend to disguise themselves so as not to be detected and to continue to thrive.  In […]

The Identity Perimeter

We build an identity perimeter around us to protect ourselves from Pain and harm by our surrounding environment. Our identity perimeter stacks beliefs, morality, friends and family relationships. We end up conversing in our own language consistent with the identity we have chosen to build. While the identity perimeter brings us several benefits I a […]

The Fear of Freedom

Freedom may be the fastest growing business in the Western World. We are rapidly removing the many constraints historically imposed by the no-longer-at stake necessities of surviving physically and economically and, thereby, of creating centralized strong protection systems such as church, marriage, governments, family, controlled sexuality, morality etc.   As liberating as Freedom may be, […]

Unsettled Matters

We all suffer from unsettled matters: things that hang over our conscience as dings, clouds shadowing our happiness. Unsettled matters include old romances where we are not proud of our role in their end, ungratefulness towards friends and givers, more generally breakups of love, friendship or trust or perceived lack of fairness/morality on our part […]
