The Occupy Cafe Dream Poster

Posted on October 26, 2012 at 10:30am 5 Comments

John Lennon's song, "Imagine" comes to my mind when I think about this potential collaborative creation. I envision a series of prints of a 12"x16" poster, with some kind of statement on it, of course, beautifully decorated and crafted by the genius of our collective imagination. I'm not suggesting some kind of decree about who 'we' are based on 'what we believe' should be the state of various aspects of our existence and how we should go about getting there. There is plenty of that,…


A Confusion of Priorities

Posted on September 20, 2012 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Actions can be confusing sometimes. We live with so many concepts, things like: charity, prayer, mercy, discipline, wellness...but what do any of these things really mean? How can we live these concepts in our day to day lives? We obviously have to bear in mind that certain values are more appropriately manifested in particular times and ways than in other times and ways. For example, you see someone on the street, dressed in a business suit, rushing around. You don't know anything about…


My Cat Has Cosmic Consciousness Part III or IV: She Partakes of Samsara by Playing with String

Posted on September 16, 2012 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

Of course, it is not that my cat merely sits all day and all night in a deep deep state of self fulfilling bliss. She eats, she runs around, and together, we play with string. When we begin to play, she is often uncertain; does she want to step into this cycle, does she not? She begins to bat, and eventually to catch the string, then repeatedly. Maybe she feels rewarded for this, as she lifts her head to my hand, string under her paw.

It is not that she doesn't 'enjoy'. Enjoyment must…


Part 2: The Anti-Space Race Phenomenon

Posted on September 12, 2012 at 12:30pm 3 Comments

From what I understand, the space race was about whether the U.S. or the U.S.S.R was the most disciplined, if discipline meant creating durable vessels for humans to go somewhere other than the planet which sustains life. So basically we flew up into space, and planted our flag. I think we won, but I might be mistaken. Anyways, there is no U.S.S.R anymore so we either won, or definitely lost, depending on whether or not it is good to remain, which seemed to be a question in the space race:…

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
