The word pathos comes from the Greek word ‘to feel’. Etymologically the preceding word means ‘to feel together.’ This could be a misinterpretation, as all people have very unique versions and imprints of feeling.
Every emotional state is unique. Nothing can transcend the way someone perceives a memory of color, the way one first experiences a moment, and the feeling associated to it, and the feeling it imprints into us.
To feel together would be to assume that every state is intuitively identical to all of us, and this is entirely untrue. Unique perception accounts for most of the states of feeling we have, apart from basic feelings we have that may have to do with survival states. These feelings may include grief (in order to process loss), anger (in order to transcend negative situations), or joy, to extend the best probabilities for survival. Read the rest of this entry »
Our wise ancestors worshipped the stars in the heavens above and considered them to be a direct reflection of the earth below. As you may know, the movement of the planets in our solar system absolutely mirrors everything that is occurring on Earth at any point in time.
Have you heard of the deities known as Nut and Geb? In Egyptian mythology Nut and Geb are twins. Nut is the sky goddess and Geb is the Earth god. In the imagery found in ancient art, Nut is typically shown to be arching over, or mirroring Geb, who lies below. As above, so below…
The Egyptians were exceptionally precise astronomers. The three pyramids at Giza mirror perfectly the three stars in Orion’s belt above. They are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. These three stars form the most striking and isolated line in the heavens. Read the rest of this entry »
There is an on-going debate, varying opinions and much confusion about the Age of Aquarius and when it actually began. Let’s clear that up.
First of all, we need to understand the role of the Spring Equinox, which is also known as the Vernal Equinox. This is the moment each year when the Sun enters the first sign of the Zodiac as it traverses the Celestial Equator, Northbound, bringing longer days to the Northern Hemisphere. Quite simply, the Sun commences its annual pilgrimage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, starting on March 20th every year, as the plane of the Earth’s Equator passes through the center of the Sun.

Perfection. When we are a ball of light on the Other Side, there is only one kind of perfection. But here on Earth, fluidity of movement, acceptance, surrender, flowing into change… this is perfection. Earth perfection is the ability to fully embrace, love, laugh at, and survive the roller-coaster ride we chose before we came here.
Many healers and therapists sell themselves, in part, by projecting a public image… and sadly, many of their followers are mostly attracted to only that image. Why is that? Perhaps the idea of having an ‘ideal’ allows people to kind of let themselves off the hook, by declaring, “Well, I can never be perfect like her!” Or maybe we just like the idea that somehow our idea of perfection really does exist.

The only way we are really going to make the future work is by allowing others to do their ‘own thing’ in their own way. Our future survival and evolution as a species will not be found in sameness, alikeness, similarity, or coercion. Instead, we must build a new global civilization based on expanding diversity, variety, assortment and multiplicity. Yet, there is one fundamental condition – for it to be successful it must be achieved in harmony with others and our planet.
From the perspective of the old mainstream view of our world, such a future world of unhindered diversity appears quite impossible and non-sensical, because that would mean that everybody does their own thing in their own way. And that seems really counter-intuitive… even dangerous. A disaster waiting to happen!
History has taught us that individuals doing things their ‘own way’ eventually manifests itself as selfishness, greed, creed, personal preference, chauvinism, dogma and ego-centered beliefs – which has caused most of our wars, the establishment of our borders, the separation between the rulers and subjects, and the division between rich and poor.

There are seven spiritual paths, or the Seven Rays, that each one of us travels on. This goes on throughout our various incarnations, and spirit life, again and again, until we finally reach back to our Creator Source, or God.
We ultimately come full circle, after we start out as divine sparks of pure spirit energy. We then become enclosed in flesh bodies, experiencing all of the hardships of physical life, until the death of these bodies and returning to spirit once again. We reincarnate again, and again, to purify our spirits, so we could be next to our God Source, and achieve total eternal Bliss.
During these incarnations we work our way through the Seven Rays. I learned of the concept of the Seven Rays by studying the books of Alice Bailey, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, The Ascended Masters teachings, and The Aquarian Foundation. Read the rest of this entry »
I have always had an interest in behavioral sciences and marketing, as well as spiritual work and the paranormal, and used this as a way of studying people’s needs, and applied it to learning cultural philosophies world-wide.
What I have found in my research is that one can intuit people’s habits as if it were a science, in order to deeply understand their collective nature. This would hopefully be an expression of their mean needs, their collective needs, or the predictive ratio, in order to see what their cultural needs were. From this arose the question: is Planet Earth happy today? Do people need more, not less material goods? Do they need more, not less love and affection? Are they less, not more aggressive? Was my perception less, not more affectionate? Yes, it also forced me to evaluate myself. Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve been friends with Gail and Paul since they were my neighbors in San Francisco, 22 years ago. This was long before today’s popularity of digital technology and our growing dependence on wireless, hand-held devices, such as our smart phones, tablets, laptops, and now even our watches.
Our homes were next to each other and the backyards adjacent. Over the fence, we exchanged conversation, shared Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and frequent “tastes” of new recipes. Life happened and in time they moved away. Later, I also moved, but we continued to exchange phone calls and written notes.
For the past ten years, I have been living in the Pacific Northwest, a mere three hour drive from Gail and Paul. We eventually reconnected and now keep in touch mostly through Facebook posts, videos and photos. Gail chronicles their life on the farm they now own. Through social media, she’s inspired me to also grow vegetables and fruits, and I’ve inspired her to save seeds from harvests to plant the next Spring. Read the rest of this entry »
