Magpies burble outside frosty windows. Autumn sidles into view. I dreamed many things. Awakening is sharp on the spirit. All the old heroes are dead and buried and pushing up wilting flowers, soot-covered, frayed at the edges, desperate for a clean breath in the sickly yellow-glow of the industry. Red-faced oligarchs loot the coffers of citizenry taking human capital and freedoms of movement, speech, and … Continue reading The Machine Eaters
Autumn comes, leaves blanket the neighbor’s driveway in bright yellow, same color as the dry straw grass that hairs the hillside seen in bleary morning eye. Dusty, trees drop their deadweight, birds recline in baking heat screech in protest, I sit by the little Aztec pot awaiting a flash from the blue, a bolt from beyond, a strike from the novel outside. I have imposed … Continue reading Vajra Bell
The static self is a long gone myth. No longer is it tenable for the average person to believe that they are truly and deeply Joe Somebody, inherently so, and so for the rest of their days. Human beings have often suspected this “I, myself” to be somewhat of a hallucination, a persistent one, but a hallucination nonetheless. Modern neuroscience cannot find this fabled “me”, … Continue reading Imaginary Problems and Static Selves
We are a culture on the surface brimming with success, achievement, stability, and unity, but should one peel back the thin film and enquire past the everyday social etiquette, one will find an undercurrent of deep-seated alienation, despair and existential angst lying just under the surface of our social awareness. Whence does this melancholy zeitgeist originate from? Why is our society so profoundly attached to … Continue reading The beginning and remedy of western suffering
We have the technology to explore the solar system, to colonize Mars, and transform humanity into a spacefaring civilization… But it costs too much money. We have such incredible advancements in medicine we have the capability to heal the sick, the wounded, and the dying… But it’s not covered by insurance. We have enough food to feed the world in excess… but the vast majority … Continue reading Perhaps it’s time to consider this is all a scam…?
“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.” ~Eckhart Tolle You are not your possessions, you are not your clothes, you are not your looks, nor your physical body.. oh my no.. my friend you are something much more beautiful than anything this physical world could hold to offer. You are consciousness, you are that which thinks, that which feels, that … Continue reading Be the awareness!
-Do You Feel Like You’ve Lost Your Way? Are you trying to get back in the saddle but nothing is seeming to work? During times of great change and unpredictability, it is easy to become ungrounded and imbalanced. Often times it may feel that the more you attempt to get yourself back on track the more you seem to fall off the path. This can … Continue reading Breathe In, Hold, Breathe Out
It’s not going to be an easy road, which is why we have pushed it off, but the time is now…. Allow me to set the stage: The year is 2017, humanity lies at the crux of a third and assuredly final world war. The governments whom preside over the people have been hijacked by a band of psychopaths, hellbent on controlling not only every … Continue reading It is time to start waking up and taking this world back for ourselves!

I can tell you everything about our wedding, which was on July 5th. Well, as you will see, our wedding was a traditional Indian wedding. It will forever be seared in my mind as the most beautiful occasion … Continue reading The wedding post – Part 1
Sometimes I like to cross my eyes and analyze the variances in the dual image. In doing this you break the automatic corrections your brain makes in its own interpretation of the dual information. The first things I notice are my left eye’s imagery has a much better resolution for detail, while my right seems to pick up a more vibrant pallet of color. My … Continue reading How limited eyes really are!
