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



“Without a global revolution in the Sphere of human consciousness, nothing will change for the better in the Sphere of our Being as Humans, and the catastrophe towards which this world is headed - be it ecological, social, demographic or a general breakdown of civilization - will be unavoidable. The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness, and in human responsibility.”  ~~ Vaclav Havel, former president of Czech Republic in his historic address to the U.S. Congress - 1990


Pity the Nation

Better than we are

Politics vs. Spirituality

“Politics and spirituality are the two sides of the same coin. Politics is the driving force visible to the outside; spirituality is the internal force driving the consciousness to open up to the world and conjoin it. Politics bared of spiritual awareness always leads to violence and the abuse of power. Spirituality without political engagement resembles an escape from the world.” ~~ - Gundula Schatz

Are You an Optimist or a Pessimist?

"Some people want to put us into a category.
Some people only feel good
when they know where they fit.
Are you an optimist?
A pessimist?
Really, there’s only one right answer.
You have to be an optimist.
Otherwise you’re a drag.
No fun to be around. Dr. Death.
And a new term, you’re from the “Doomsphere.”
In the past, we were taught to note our worldview
by looking at a glass of water.
Is the glass half empty? Is it half full?
Your answer defines your identity:
Gloom and doom or hopeful
and great to hangout with.
What a nonsensical question this is.
Is the glass half full or half empty?
Who cares?!
The right question for Warriors is:
Who needs the water and how can we get it to them?
What is the work that needs doing and how can I contribute to making it
No labels. Just seeing clearly what needs to be done
 and stepping up to do it."
Margaret Wheatley



“We are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness. We are not objects. We have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us.  We or rather our reasons, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in a lifetime.  We are perceivers. The world that we perceive though is an illusion.  It was created by a description that was told to us since the moment we were born.” –– Don Juan


“If you listen carefully
enough to anything,
it will talk to you.”

—George Washington Carver
