Enjoy this touching clip showing a usually sedate elderly patient being sparked back to life with nothing more than some classic tunes.

“Because we are at war…”

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

“We are at war.” “This is a war here.” “Our country is at war.”

How many times have we heard these words, most often uttered by someone trying and justify the unjustifiable, like sacrificing liberty for the illusion of security, or giving away inch after inch of precious power for the sake of the nation’s interests – not to be confused with our own interests.

If you’re like me, then you’re sick of hearing this wartime pretense being used to co-opt  both common sense and human rights alike.

We are at war… with who? Your only enemies are the ones you keep creating through your actions. Preemptive war only proliferates ideas of hate, and you can’t kill an idea no matter how hard you fight.

This is a war… no it isn’t! If you truly want to strike a critical blow against terror, stop terrorizing people. Quit believing that you are in a war. Withdraw from that mindset… then withdraw from the battlefields.

Awaken to our new world. It’s no longer about fighting religions, countries or cultures. The threats we do face, we face as a species. Cooperation, not infighting, is the way forward.

A Universe of Love

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Like the Buddha says, “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

Take time every day to consciously bless all the cells and organisms that make up your own personal ecosystem. Create your own atmosphere. Feel free to float above negativity no matter where it comes from.

Flood the universe with positive energy when you can. It will come back to you when you need it.

Joe Rogan Learns the Hard Way Not to Feed the Trolls

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

UFC Commentator, Comedian and all-around cool guy Joe Rogan is being reminded of an important notion most of us in the Internet community know all too well:


Joe, being so well-versed with the Internet, should have known better. But we all make mistakes.

Perhaps what is most frustrating is how this guy Tomas Rios, while a noted journalist,  is still so obviously a troll. Even Joe knew this when he called the guy a “round ball of suck” who only writes “negative, cunty shit.” Now, because of a morsel Joe just tossed him, this troll can grow into an even bigger monster.

Responding to the uproar, Joe, to his credit, makes some awesome points. Like how there is so much negativity throughout the news media and so few credible journalists.

Or how there are these magic words, like “faggot” and “nigger”, that are taboo and if you use them you have to apologize to an entire community. But, just as Joe said,  these words have lost most of their stigma. This is doubly true to anyone in touch with the Internet where they are used as generic insults all the time.

Worst of all, Joe stated how his intention was to cut this “asshole… off at the root”. Now, most informed netizens will know that trolls (and assholes) only feed off negativity to grow stronger, which is why Mr. Rogan should have just left it alone.

No matter how well intentioned we are and regardless of how tempting it can be to respond to trollbaggery, please try to ignore it and focus on something positive and productive instead.

Meditation – Bless All of Existence

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

As we meditate, along with blessing ourselves and filling ourselves with positive energy and positive intention, we can also willfully spread our love, peace, and power to all of existence around us.

The connection to existence is not found outwards, in the universe, but inwards, from our center.  It is through our center, our core, our soul, which we connect directly through the rest of existence.

As we meditate and attain the sense of peace and reconnect with our cores, we can then radiate positive energy to all of existence.  We can transmit our gratitude, our love, joy, and everything that is great – to the world, to all life, and to everything that is.

Finding our core then expressing our love and gratitude allows these feelings to radiate through our lives, and outwards to the universe around us.  As we do this, the universe will become more loving… we will see more love in the world and in those around us in our day to day lives.

Meditation – Fill yourself with positive energy

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Meditation is an extremely powerful tool, for self-improvement, self-introspection, for shedding stress, and for attaining a sense of peace and oneness with the universe.  There are lots of different techniques and methods, and many various things to focus on.

One thing to try focusing on is to consciously bless your own body.  Consciously send positive intentions into yourself.  Make every single cell in your body – the trillions of cells which make up your physical self – happy, healthy, peaceful and powerful.  Make every single atom in your body happy, healthy, peaceful and powerful. Consciously will positive things into every ounce of your being, right now in the present, in the past, and in the future.

Along with the trillions of our own cells that make up our body, we are also host to trillions of organisms, which are part of a symbiotic relationship, our survivals are interdependent. As we meditate, we can conciously transmit positive energy to these foreign cells that are part of us.

This power, this energy you can will unto yourself will be there for you when you need it, for the times when life is challenging.  The positive intentions can be saved up, if you will, in your body, your cells and your atoms, to be released at a later time.

In the last blog entry, we discussed the importance dreaming big.  When we take the time to meditate and fill ourselves with positive energy, it is possible to channel that force into action as we move to attain our goals.

Stop Hating

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

There is too much hate in our world… it spreads like a disease through the social consciousness.   People see others acting with hateful intentions, and it only encourages them to express themselves in a similar fashion.

Stop the hating… nothing positive comes from it.

For one, time spend hating doesn’t do any good.  Hating is wasted time and energy.  It doesn’t help you achieve anything, other than reciprocating the hate that you’ve felt in your own life.  Take a stand against hate and see that you don’t pay it forward.

Look inside yourself for love.  Nurture love instead of feeding the troll of hate that lives inside you.  The more love you give out, the more you will get back.  And, the less hate you put out, the less you will get back, meaning the less hate you will have in your life.

Secondly, we are all extensions of the same whole.  Despite how it may seem at times from our human perspective, we are all interconnected.  We are all part of the phenomenon of life, all descendants of the same first cells, and we all share a common bond.   Hating others is the same as hating yourself… the hate that you put out only comes back to yourself.

tl:dnr – stop hating yourself and stop hating others
