This is the Age

This is the Age

This is the time when humankind finally breaks the cycle. It is about new ideas. It is about keeping hope, faith and light alive in spite of terrible and ancient darkness.

The Human Dream

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero…

A Better World

“In the current of a river there are sometimes wave distortions concealing grave obstructions hidden deep beneath the surface that disrupt the flowing continuity.  Just so in the endless concourse of our lives lurking in tempestuous turmoil there are lethal obstructions secreted, holding us back from flowing home.  Hidden there are obstacles that do not…

Try to Imagine

“Try to imagine a world where Human beings spent their lives focusing most of all upon Union, upon cooperation and working ever more closely together to find the hidden ways to “share” life more perfectly rather than concentrating on self-centered survival, suspicion, accumulation of wealth and advantage, or preservation of territory, property and domain. Dream…

Creatures of the Twilight

“It is possible to believe that all the past is but the beginning, and that all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. It is possible to believe that all the human mind has ever accomplished is but the dream before the awakening. We cannot see, there is no need…

Any Road

What are the Odds?

It appears that the odds of dying from cancer or heart disease in this world are something like 1 in 7. The odds of getting killed in a car accident around 1 in 300. A cataclysmic storm, 1 in 46,000. Lightning 85,000. Chances of dying Sky diving are maybe 1 in 100,000. The odds of…

Storm

Oftentimes through the past long, long winter with scurrilous, unruly ideas swirling in my head, I would trundle to bed with a tempestuous Pacific Northwest storm raging, roaring angry and wild through the towering fir and cedar trees trying desperately to rip the land out to sea. And in the morning after my own voyage…

This will be the Age (Part 2)

Everywhere today human beings search for an answer that will save us. Tens of thousands of physicists with massive technology seek the elementary building block or “God” particle that our universe must be built upon. Global efforts to create a “New World Order” and Global Governance framed upon the same ancient human cycle of ignorance.…

Hope

Looking back now, through the decades, from the carefree, oblivious 1950’s and a world or hope and humanity, to the times now where Human beings carelessly and obliviously accept tragic suffering, greed, savage brutality and the murdering of young helpless children with seemingly blind, uncaring disregard and where we all seem to be enslaved in…

Joy

Within earshot of my writing desk, in three regimented interludes on scholastic “school daze” punctuated by the usual monotonous timed buzzer an event of pure, wild fury erupts that shatters all silence and predictable order. A torrent of bubbling, effervescent young ragamuffins and colorful, heedless urchins escape from the barred doors and carefully controlled classrooms…
