When we experience this universe we live within as a field of reality, understand the waves and the troughs of different dreams that weave the world we know, then there is no longer the need to manipulate . . . right
relationship means right relationship with the elements, the land, the sacred directions . . . The seed of pure mind is within all people. It is always there. It is not made impure. Our actions may be impure and set up a
stream of reactions, but always we can come again to that seed of pure mind and right relationship . . . it is
time now for people to choose. The first step is to see the power of your own consciousness . . . The common kernel is care for all beings, good relationship, cycles ofreciprocity, generosity, giving of oneself, being an empty bowl so you can know what is.
-Dhyani Ywahoo


"We see that any single event...now has global repercussions. and this call for a completely different comportment than anything before.  We can't do just one thing.  We can't act in just one place.
Whatever we do in one place, at one time, will have repercussions to all other times and all other places."
Ervin Laszlo


Love and Wisdom

"Wisdom tells me I am nothing.
Love tells me I am everything.
And between the two my life flows."
--Nisargadatta Maharaj

"Emptiness is two things at once:
the absence of self and the presence of the Divine.
Thus as self decreases, the Divine increases."
-- Sister Bernadette Roberts


Leadership - An Inner Journey

"A leader is a person who has an unusual degree of power to project on other people his or her shadow or his or her light. A leader is a person who has an unusual degree of power to create the conditions under which other people must live and move and have their being-conditions that can either be as illuminating as heaven or as shadowy as hell. A leader is a person who must take special responsibility for what's going on inside him or her self, inside his or her consciousness, lest the act of leadership create more harm than good.
   The problem is that people rise to leadership in our society by a tendency towards extroversion, which means a tendency to ignore what is going on inside themselves. Leaders rise to power in our society by operating very competently and effectively in the external world, sometimes at the cost of internal awareness.
     I've looked at some training programs for leaders. I'm discouraged by how often they focus on the development of skills to manipulate the external world rather than the skills necessary to go inward and make the inner journey."
