A Friendly Reminder

"Friends…, friends…., who needs friends…" says the mad scientist from Day of the Tentacle. I loved that game when it came out, probably one of the very few that I enjoyed. It didn’t help that I spent quite a bit of time trying to get…

The Drama of Life and Living

Humans. It’s amazing their lack of control, the obvious unwillingness to take a step back and observe their own sense of self, of their own cohesion in the balance of the universe. This lack demonstrates itself through drama, day in and day out.

Timesweep

Sometimes the broom comes out and things get swept from here to there. In the motion all sorts of other things also become lodged, dislodged and shuffled about. Like a dusty floor one can watch the fine particles float hither and…

The Thought-fullness of Thinking

This is being written in the format of a gentle introduction."I think, therefore I am."

Perceptive Repose

I am going to try to make this as short and to the point as possible. Through the gentle breeze of unbounded awareness perception remains ever vigilant.

Set In Stone

When the pace accelerates particles already in motion tend to become further stimulated thereby enhancing the vacuum of required action. It’s not that good things come to those who wait it’s more like patience exacting it’s due regard.

Thought Transference

The tides of time weave shapes and colors of all sorts of designs and yet alone at the end of it all the potential remains yet unfulfilled. That very same potential endures in completeness none the worse for wear and tear. It really doesn’t…

Come In To The Parlor...

"Come in to the Parlor." said the Spider to the Fly. Man or woman the Spider reveals some interesting facts about human nature. (‘Human’ as in the characteristics Man takes upon himself for fame and glory.) Competition knows no bounds when prey…

Killer Klowns

There is a movie called "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" from which this derives it’s name. The movie is ridiculous but the message is not.

Through The Eye of Newt

Perception is an interesting phenomenon where views can come and go altering itself into strange beasts along the way. Through the placement of attention perception becomes defined thereby altering our being. We see all that we see - at least…

Where Would We Find Ourselves?

What is it that drives Men mad? What is it that becomes so unsettling that our very foundation shakes and crumbles giving way to anxious desire? What is it that determines our fate, our fortunes along with such tales of woe that we become…

The Man In The Mirror

‘Man’ is not being referred to here as that over uni-sexed version world dominion lovers embrace. There are two different spellings of ‘man’, one with a capital ‘M’ and one with a small ‘m’. The small ‘m’ version represents man-kind and is all…

Circumventing The Inevitable

Eventually all events come to pass. In thinking, all thoughts comes to be pondered. In being, all experience unfolds. So what becomes of us? What becomes of us where limitation comes to be exceeded, to be broken and cast away as the refuse that…

'Independent' Scientology

The religion, the philosophy, the company, take your pick. In shuffling the deck confusion reigns and in that confusion stable data become the frontier where we search for new life, new meaning, to go where no one has gone before. As the pack…

Here And No-Where Else

I’ve made it known about my disconnection with the various power positions that are going on and the reasons for that. Sometimes even the big boys require an alternate perspective, one which lies outside the boundaries…

You Can Run But You Can't Hide

Scientology is quite the interesting subject. It not only contains pitfalls and deathtraps which were newly created by the taken-over church, but it also contains an absolutely wonderful array of tools, tips and techniques for one’s spiritual…

Break Dancing

Stifling dissent we tend to create conformity. Comfort comes to be defined in light of common bonds, of a shared mentality where nothing is feared or fear-full - where nothing is amiss in our sense of ‘ordinary’. To be at odds is to be in danger…

Awareness: What Is It?

What is awareness? We all know that we are alive and living but what is this thing called awareness? How is it that we come to know that we "are"? When we refer to ourselves as "I" do we mean those characteristics and traits which define our…

Reach And Withdraw

Over the course of time it has become quite apparent that this website has followed the tried and true process of reach and withdraw. But that is in appearance only as there is no reach and withdraw going on. There is only "going on" that is…

Falling From Grace

This is a conceptual roadmap plotting the Fall from Grace. The sense of awareness in itself creates and defines a separation from our selves, our own true nature. This is, of course, an untruth as we cannot be separate and apart from our…

What's That Smell?

Do you smell it? If one were to extend their senses and allow the intake of experience to make itself known, what would be the result? Upon the air of awareness there lies the fact that Darkness, that inherent factor to which so many either…

Touching The Roof Of The Sky

Beyond all appearances there lies that which exists, not through time nor space but in perpetuity in an state beyond understanding, knowledge or any other tainted conceptualization. Being neither a state, form nor function how do we come to…

The Portal Of Doom

Long in hope and short in reality, many beings which walk the Earth tend to live on the "wild" side of the tracks, so to speak. Out reality is a term used to describe those who, like their counterparts locked securely away from society, are out…

The State Of Clear

The state of Clear is such an interesting phenomenon when viewed from the point of view of every-day man. To the blind who walk the Earth, this state appears desirable only in relation to their every-day existence, of how it can be improved….

Is Thought Aware?

In order to know if thought is aware or not we must have an understanding of what thought actually is, not what someone tells us it is, but what our own understanding is. Based upon your own personal understanding, is thought aware?
