"I'm feeling as if several layers of who I thought I was have been ripped off my being in the last few months and now I'm patiently waiting for the freshly exposed stuff to stop hurting. This "process" of invoking self-growth is tough and there are times when I wish I could go back to being the ignorant, blissful being I once thought I was. Nah. Just kidding. My gratitude is too great for me to reverse directions again!." Share this post :

"I spent most of yesterday (Christmas) clearing my home of clutter in preparation of 2011 -- which I anticipate is going to require me to be more clear-headed, focused, available, and clutter-less. So much change is going on round me and inside of me -- and at such an accelerated rate -- that I'm going to need a safer (and saner) harbor than I had in the wonderful year I call 2010."

Daily Quote: December 22, 2010

‎"The human body is a physical manifestation of the powerful ego and the ego uses the body to distract us from things spiritual. Therefore, when a sense of dis-ease seems to disempower you, take it as an opportunity to step back and witness what is really going on. You may see that beneath the illusion of di-sease, all is well." Share this post :

Maui Preparation

Have begun the psychic, spiritual, and physical preparations for my exciting upcoming trip to Maui this February. Coincidentally, I manifested a sore throat and achy lungs today and am now nursing myself back to normal health! Laughing out loud! Share this post :

Maui Madness Contest at fab.com

On November 4, 2010 -- at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time -- I won the Maui Madness Contest at fab.com. I could not have done this without the assistance of all my friend fabbits at fab.com. I am honored and blessed -- Mahalo!

On Deceember 20, 2010, I announced that I'd asked fab.com member and friend Sal Rinaudo to join me -- and he agreed! Wish I could have brought everyone ... but you'll be in my heart totally! (We're looking at going in February, 2011.) Share this post :

"Lately I've been captivated by the so-called `news.' I try not to engage in such frivolousness, but it feels at times like I am fighting demons. Even weather reports seem compelling. How is hearing there's a possible maybe could-be chance of sun or inclement weather helpful? Sigh. Help me sit still and experience the silence that is within -- knowing there is always a 50/50 chance of rain." -- Michael Walker Share this post :

When the time is right, I'll know more and might just be able to finish the job with a human flourish." -- Michael Walker Share this post :

Daily Quote: December 7, 2010

I was thinking this morning about which came first: the chicken or the egg. Suddenly, the obvious became apparent.

1. chicken. 2. egg. 3. thinking about; then
1. egg. 2. chicken. 3. thinking about; then
1. thinking about. 2. chicken. 3. egg; then
1. thinking about. 2. egg. 3. chicken.

All of the above and not necessarily in that order.

Eureka and AHA!!

Possible responses:

1. He has too much time on his hands!?
2. This is what happens when a person meditates?!
3. Wow. This guy's on to something!
4. LOL (I think)!

Daily Quote: November 30, 2010

"I always felt like writing -- or the urge or need to write -- was a detriment. That was because I couldn't make it go away. Oh, and it was such a painful process -- like ingesting some medicine that you knew would tear the dis-ease from you. In fact, writing felt a bit like a disease or poison floating around in my blood.

As a young writer I would beg God to make it go away, this insatiable need to put words down on paper. Like a person swearing chastity, I would promise myself I would not write on a given day -- which would hopefully turn into weeks, then months, then a lifetime. But eventually the agony of not-writing would set in and I'd find myself under a tree with a pen and pad jotting short, mediocre poems.

It took nearly forty years for me to come to a place where I could accept a love-hate relationship with writing. And to accept the fact that what I considered mediocrity -- or what critics told me was just bad writing -- simply didn't matter. I mean, it's far more important to express ourselves than to worry about what others might think. And, as everyone knows, practice makes perfect and it's really all about progress and not perfection! Just go for it and you'll find improvement wending its way into everything you do!

When we create anything, we are expressing the divinity from within; we are giving voice to God/dess's Voice (or the Voice of whomever or whatever is the symbol of inspiration for us.). Even if we are not "that good at it", we are still celebrating our own lives in a way that no critic can rightfully demean and nobody else can do for us. Celebrate life, give voice to the Universe, and (co)create anyway you can!!"

I'm getting tired of hearing people talk about "not touching my junk."

I'm getting tired of hearing people talk about "not touching my junk."

I mean, firstly, when did one of the best parts of my body take on the name "junk." Seriously. THAT'S the name we want people to think of when we talk about any one of our body parts -- especially that one? Not me.

Secondly, given the choice of having someone brush up against my feel-good parts and dying in an airplane explosion ... I'm going to vote for the brush. Seriously, it's not like there's a grope and lingering look in their eyes or anything. It's a job. (And if it were the grope and spooky look, I'd STILL opt for that over death.)

And finally, how much of our 70-100 years on this planet do we really want to waste on this unimportant issue? If you don't like the process, don't fly. The rental cars and cruise lines will love you -- and so will I!

"Your heart is where your home is -- and the two are wherever you happen to be geographically at any given moment. As your human body moves around the planet, it transports your heart center -- which carries within its electromagnetic field the power to filter, amplify, and clear your intentions and and to cast its electromagnetic field out into the universe to be received. Keep those intentions positive and good things are bound to come to pass as the warmth of your home touches everyone you meet."

Daily Quote: November 27, 2010

"I do not believe that the Universe wants to see us hurt. It does not want to see us suffer. It does not want for anything but for us to experience a joy of living that surpasses all understanding. And when we choose other ways of living and being than those of peace and harmony, the Universe (I believe) becomes an unengaged witness and let's us do the things we do without comment. To learn to witness as the Universe witnesses is a sacred act and one I aspire to one moment at a time." -- Michael Walker

Daily Quote: November 26, 2010

"Before when I smiled at someone on the street, I needed for them to return a smile or my day was ruined and/or I harbored ungrateful thoughts about the SOB. Today when I smile at people on the street, I choose not not to expect a smile in return; because my own smile is a gift to them and one to myself -- for a giving and receiving are one and the same. If they do smile back, it is frosting on the cake that is my day; frosting created by my sister or brother. And if they smile at me first, I beam and shine and acknowledge my oneness with them in the deepest part of my being, in my heart and in my soul." -- Michael Walker

Daily Quote: (really a question): November 24, 2010

Question: If silence is golden and if -- as Rinpoche suggests -- little can improve upon silence -- what are the value of spoken words? And if not spoken words, can the written word improve upon the silence? And if so, what form of written words or what literary genre?

Usually it's just to feel joyful and to exude that joy. Kind of like every day here in Washington, DC." -- November 22, 2010

"A Poem by Michael Walker

Watching our Selves.
Witnessing.
Stepping back,
unengaged, and separating the
story
from
the rest.
Seeing beneath the form.
So easy, so seemingly
difficult.
Peace of cake.
So easy it's almost trite.
So hard it's almost easy."

"Integration is the gift we are given for being brave enough to move in tandem with Spirit. It affords sense to this world while we prepare for the final immersion in the spiritual world. Without integration, we are like someone hailing the importance of fire while waving a flashlight. It provides light, but the meal goes uncoiled."

"How much easier life seems when the sun is shining and I've had a good night's sleep. The world is ordered and balanced ... the same as it is on cranky, rainy, cold days ... only on "good" days like this it just seems to make more sense. Shows a lack of faith on my part, I suppose, but a mindful acceptance and awareness of that lack of faith makes all the difference in the world. God/dess and I can smile about it together." -- November 17, 2010

"Not every day feels perfect and complete. Some days feel different than that. It's as if sometime during the night I slipped into someone else's body or life. I awake with a sense of foreignness, unfamiliarity. Sort of like when I was first born into this body way back when.

Sage and my altar become ceremonial anchors on days like this; my yoga and meditation is a patient waiting for my remembrances to return.

All is well, I think to myself, even if at this moment I feel otherwise.

Outside I hear the rain pelting gently on the window and recall it is the voice of the universe.

Today I will be mindful of the curious perceptions and wait for them to pass." -- November 16, 2010

Daily Quote: November 14, 2010

"This morning when I woke up, it was if my ego had attended night school while I dreamt. All the world looked off-kilter and slightly darker than it usually seems. The good aspects of my life felt tarnished and the undesirable things (stuff I think I need to work on) seemed daunting and life-threatening. I will never finish organizing my home, the money will run out sooner than later, any day now people will discover the "real me," and death's toothless grin will not lead to oneness but to separation. These are the way things seemed to me this morning.

Then I made coffee, read from A Course in Miracles, did yoga, and focused on what is real. All that I truly need is within my immediate grasp -- oxygen, a roof over my head, good food, and the best gaggle of friends in the word. The rat running around in my brain, brought to me by Ego Night School, is a puny little thing whose beady black eyes are filled with fear. He is but a shadow of my brilliant Self, the gnawing doubts that linger from days before I remembered who I a am -- a child of light.

Now looking out the window of my home in Washington, DC, the sterling light of day, the fantastic neighborhood, the promises of what today will bring swaying gently with each breath of breeze -- I look inward at the rat skulking in the corridors of myself and say out loud, `I'm on to you, you know. I am totally on to you.'" -- November 14, 2010

Daily Quote: November 13, 2010

‎"Sometimes all you can do for someone to show that you love them and care for them and want the very best for them is to keep your opinions to yourself. Your advanced guru like spiritual powers of knowing mean nothing if their ego shields are switched on. In this case, it is better to let Spirit do all the important work and for you to just be a fellow human." -- November 13, 2010

Daily Quote: November 12, 2010

"Stepping back into the present moment after spending a week in parallel ones that were all about winning and cajoling and negotiating helped me see one primal Truth. Nothing tastes better than alone time with myself and God/dess. And that was very difficult for me to achieve in the workaday world defined for me by others. I am so grateful to be home again."

Daily Quote: November 11, 2010

"When I find myself painted into a corner by my ego because of some earthly desire I think I want or need, I try to realize that the thing I want may not be meant to be ... for me. That there is a better scenario awaiting my participation. And that the thing or event I think I want or need is someone else's lesson or karma. Then I bless the other person and wish them well with that lesson." -- November 11, 2010

Daily quote: November 10, 2010

"Being at one with the world around me, it can hold the answer to all my questions, concerns, problems, and dilemmas. By listening to the silence -- or watching it -- in meditation or while experiencing a crow sweeping across the sky or a comet racing into oblivion, we can find answers to the deepest matters. All the fluff and distractions fall away and the answers reveal themselves -- maybe in the flowing water of a stream, or a crackling campfire, or simply in that flash knowing while waiting for a traffic light to change. Look and listen. The answers are written on the wind or reveal themselves as a flower opens in the morning. Learn to seek and receive these clues from the world around you. The places and signs will eventually become familiar and you will always know exactly where to go for help." -- November 10, 2010

Daily Quote: November 9, 2010

"My 'self-improvement' became so much more focused and speedy when I put down all the books and tapes and movies offering improvement. Instead, I started communing with my Higher Self every moment I could. Meditation, yoga, hot baths, and quiet times -- these became the new study period for me. At that point Spirit began handing me bushels of understanding in exchange for a commitment to disengage my ego. True miracles then happened and I found myself improving in ways I could never have imagined possible." -- November 9, 2010

"Taking time each morning -- and periodically throughout the day -- to remember that I am an expression of a loving, supportive, Truth-imbued universe centers me in so many ways. I want for nothing, really, and this constant realization enables me to relax and be a loving, supportive, Truth-imbued presence for others. Truth is truth and nothing can stand it its way."

Daily Quote: November 7, 2010

"I used to try to set an intention for my new day. But today I realized that's unnecessary because I am God/dess's intention. If I wasn't today's intention of the Universe, I wouldn't be here. Pure and simple. I just have to ride that energy, knowing that all is exactly as the universe intended. Ripples, dips, bumps, and hills are part of the ride, value-added extras for no additional charge." -- November 7, 2010

Daily Quote: November 6, 2010

"When I meditate, my mind becomes still, my breath slows down, and my heart rate lessens. And since my heart’s electro-magnetic field is about five thousand times more powerful than the one created by my brain, this meditation and practicing of mindfulness affects the energy field around me and literally affects the world. How cool is that?" -- November 6, 2010

"The longer I meditate, the more I am able to see and navigate through what I used to call 'bad days.' Now, however, I see all days connected as one (call it my individual lifetime), with various shades of energy, some feeling good and some feeling bad. I maneuver through them, though, mindful that they are just swirling bits of now moving toward tomorrow and yesterday."

Daily Quote: November 4, 2010

"Real love starts when we learn how to appreciate our own qualities and then acknowledge that those qualities -- and others -- exist in everyone we meet. Fear insists that life is really about lack, limitation, and separation -- but this is just an illusion. Learn to appreciate yourself and others and astounding things are sure to happen in your life ... and you will find true love right where you are standing." -- November 4, 2010

Daily Quote: November 3, 2010

"Probably one of the most challenging spiritual lessons is when the other guy, women, team, person, or candidate wins. Suddenly the concept of "we are all one" takes on a more bitter taste. But divine Oneness includes everyone and everything. Becoming mindful of the ego conflicts this situation creates in us is the key. Observe, witness, and let go. And know that everything actually does happen for a greater purpose that includes all of us and not just a political party and its people." -- November 3, 2010

"Every 'bad' event, negative feeling, discombobulated moment, scary passage, or dark night of the soul I experience is an opportunity to turn things around by surrounding them with Light or to hand them over to the God/dess for healing. I choose to learn or to not learn; to be happy or sad; to love the lesson or to fear the next one. Today I choose love." -- November 1, 2010

The rest are secondarily make-believe and warrant mindful study without the same sense of urgency." -- October 27, 2010

There, I said it and somewhere (I'm pretty gosh-darn sure) God/dess is smiling."-- October 26, 2010

And they don't charge me a dime. How fortunate I am to have such good teachers. I am very grateful!"

Daily Quote: October 17, 2010

"We have two choices: love or fear. Love allows us to open up and experience joy; fear causes us to shut down and contract. Love brings us community; fear leaves us feeling alone. But there is a trick here -- a trick of the ego. For only love is real; fear is false and though it seems to be powerful and strong, it is really as thin as tissue paper. In actuality -- there is only One. God/dess, you, and I. Embrace your divinity and choose love." -- October 16, 2010

"I have to say, the more I get to know my ego, the move I am enamored with it. It's cute, cuddly, cunning, baffling, sparkly-eyed, melodious, has sweet breath, and can tango like the best of them. My ego seems primo. The only problem is that everything my ego tries to sell me is a pack of lies. Falsehoods. Houses of cards. Deceit is its middle name; fear it's greatest weapon. Only love can conquer the ego. Embrace it, love it, and speak soothingly to it. Let it think you believe its lies; then walk away knowing the Truth. Your ego, as adorable as it may seem, is not your friend." -- October 14, 2010

Daily Quote: October 14, 2010

"[Everyone who cares about our children should post this on their walls.]


I am gay and I, too, was bullied by people in elementary school and junior high school. The self-loathing I felt was too intense for words and it was only my anger and hate of those people that brought me through to where I was able to learn to love myself.

And some very loving friends in high school, straight mostly, who taught me about self-worth and about loving myself for who I am. And that is what I try to teach people today. It's all good and things do get better.

If you're a young gay person reading this and you're hurting, find someone, anyone -- a teacher, a therapist, a friend, a family member, a spiritual mentor, a Facebook buddy, or your friends at The Trevor Project (http://www.thetrevorproject.org/) -- to share your pain, your hurt, and your story.

Do NOT do anything hurtful to yourself. Please …. for me and for all of us who care …. DO NOT do anything hurtful to yourself

You are a creative, brilliant person waiting to burst out and become an amazing being. And one day, same as me and many others like me, you will be able to help people just like yourself. Do not, do not, do not cave in. You be the winner; let them be the losers. We need you.

Thank you for being you!"

"As I look around the room (my life), I note that every book, file folder, glass of wine, photograph, food morsel, and dust speck has a story connected to it. These stories seem to give everything substance and value, but often they just weigh me down. In truth, the stories are mere obstacles to my seeing these objects as the illusions they really are. Without the stories, the objects disappear and my life becomes a serene, holy experience again." -- October 10, 2010

Mostly none of the stuff they led me to believe I was. Amen to that." -- October 7, 2010

"Say a problem or issue or energetic snag arises involving somebody else. Well, if forgiveness is the key and if, in fact, we're all one, then who is there to forgive? The answer, of course, is ourselves. For harboring ill-feelings against a brother or sister harms one and harms all. Forgive and move on with your joy of living. Alternately, forgive the other and thereby forgive yourself. Then move on with your joy of living and envision the other doing the same. It's nice to know we have choices ... and that when done so with integrity, honesty, and well-meaning, everybody wins." -- October 5, 2010

Daily Quote: October 1, 2010


(Heading to the Shenandoah Mountains
and may be off-line until October 3, 2010.)

"This morning I thought that I had somehow veered into an old dimension (call it an old way of thinking or being) but that it was okay; since I was merely stepping through dimensions, taking a sip here and a sip there, testing the old versus new, seeing what tastes good and what is bitter, what works and what doesn't. I seem to be continually stepping from one dimension to another -- and another and another. And rather than think too much about it -- I've learned to just observe my journey without judgment and without attachment. A slow process of learning, indeed." -- October 1, 2010

Daily Quote: September 30, 2010

"Once I figured out how to permit the universe to flow unobstructedly, without my fighting it and splish splashing around against its flow, things got markedly better. Then when I advanced to the point where I understood that, in fact, it was the universe permitting me to splish splash and fight it if I so desired, things got even better. The day I realized that me and the universe were one, I became enlightened." -- September 30, 2010

Daily Quote: September 29, 2010

"I used to be grateful for the things that I had and that my friends and enemies didn't have. It made me feel more enriched knowing that their lack was my gain. It seemed to be the way the world worked -- somebody had to lose something in order for others to have something. Now I know that everybody is entitled to a rich, full, complete, happy, and healthy existence; and that sharing what I have and what I know about life is instrumental to the smooth operation of this universe I have all created. Showing others how to do the same thing in the universe they have created is tricky business; but it's really, really fun!" -- September 29, 2010

Daily Quote: September 28, 2010

"Beneath form, there's a need to forgive. If you see, feel, hear, taste, or smell something odious, chances are you need to forgive it and let it go. Otherwise it would not be in your life. In your life, it is your teacher; out of your life -- your freedom. Meditate and learn to let go of that which is form; beneath the form you will find amazing peace." -- September 28, 2010

Daily Quote: September 27, 2010

"‎Listening to the sound of falling rain really does remind me of the voice of God/dess. So clear, so melodious, so powerful, so gentle. That is how s/he spoke to me; how s/he speaks to me today. I am so grateful for the Light and understanding." -- September 27, 2010

Daily Quote: September 25, 2010

"I'm only as old as I feel. Except when I first wake up in the morning. Then - even as I'm thanking the stars for another day - my body suggests to me that I'm every day my age. Then my ego jumps up and down in glee and harps on about aches and pains -- suggesting that's proof that I'm a human codger. Suddenly sense prevails: I remember I am an immortal being and that the ego and body are illusions. My real day begins anew!" -- September 25, 2010

Daily Quote: September 24, 2010

"It's all one. The ups, the downs, the permutations of reality, the realms, the dimensions, the confabulations, the hope, the love, and even the fears. Ego insists that separation is the only sensible thing to believe -- that pain and suffering are the norm. But we can learn to know better, and once we do, there's no turning back. And by then we are surrounded by angels and by friends." -- September 24, 2010

Daily Quote: September 23, 2010

"Forgiveness is the cure for my belief in separation; separation from God/dess, from others, and from my core Self. It is an acknowledgment that the bonehead over there, the thorn in my side or so-called enemy, is so close to being me with all my own foibles, inadequacies, indecencies, and intricacies, that we might as well be the same person. And forgiving that person, allowing her or him to be childlike enough to make mistakes and still be lovable, allows my sense of separation to slowly dissipate and vanish like mist."-- September 23, 2010

Daily Quote: September 22, 2010

"Manifestation is not so much rocket-science as it is wrapping your mind around and squeezing all the doubts out of your stubborn, overly cautious little ego. And make no mistake about it; your ego IS little ... only it's all puffed up to make itself feel way bigger than it really is. Move past and beyond your ego and create the life that you want!" -- September 22, 2010

Daily Quote: September 21, 2010

"I used to hate it when other people followed me around or imitated the things I did/do. 'Get a life,' I'd think to myself. Now I see that they have a life, that it's their own, and that they find mine working good enough that they want to try it on for size. So today when I see someone copying me, I say to myself, 'You go on! I must be on to something!. And I bless them for blessing me." -- September 21, 2010

Daily Quote: September 20, 2010

"`Playing' for me has been learning how to effortlessly let go of just about everything I've ever been taught about life; knowing in my heart that, as well-meaning as it all was, it was holding me back - trapped in an illusion of powerlessness. Now that I have begun to learn the game of letting that all go, I am happier than I have ever been in my entire life." -- September 20, 2010

Daily Quote: September 19, 2010

"The Light I feel within, without, and moving through me ... this Light is my direct connection to the world from whence I came, the place I am slowly learning to remember. Each moment I do remember this place it is as if I go back home just for that moment. And then, with a start, know that home is where my heart is ... and that I am already there. My searching really is done."

Daily Quote: September 17, 2010

"Every second of every minute of every hour, I am choosing between love and fear. It is that simple. Am I coming from a place of love or a place of fear? If my body hurts or my life sucks or I am feeling guilty or worried, then I am in fear. If I am light and smiling and know that all is and will always be well, then I am coming from a place of love. And ultimately, there is no choice because all there really is ... is love. Fear in all its guises (pain, suffering, loss, and death) is an illusion. There actually is only one Force in the world, and that Force is love. When we experience or choose anything outside of love, we have allowed our egos to throw that in our paths to distract us. And why do we do that? Well, that's the million dollar question, isn't it?"

Daily Quote: September 16, 2010

"For so long I denied my own worth because I felt it was arrogant to think highly of myself. Now I see that true arrogance is denying our best qualities ...for these are the very qualities we share with God/dess/Force. To deny my own holiness is to deny the God/dess/Force in me. And THAT'S arrogant for sure." -- September 16, 2010

Daily Quote: September 14, 2010

"Only one thing is reasonably certain about my October this year; I'll be l happy, alive, and communing with God/dess and friends in ceremony. Whether in DC, on a cruise ship heading toward Mexico with my pal Samuel Vera, or elsewhere -- the details are unimportant ... for all will always be well and precisely as it should be." -- September 14, 2010

Daily Quote: September 13, 2010

"Giving is the exact same as receiving and, therefore, is its own reward. I gladly give because I know that I benefit in equal measure to the person to whom I offer the gift. And since I and the person are one, I do not really 'lose' anything in the transaction. Any appearances of losing in these exchanges are a trick of my ego and should be discarded like yesterday's trash."

Daily Quote: September 11, 2010

"I'm one of those individuals who believes that there is really only one Force in the universe; the one many call "God". Anything outside of this Force is illusion, created by the ego, and causes us to feel separate from God and therefore from ourselves. Focusing on that oneness, which I believe is LOVE -- and denying it, which results in FEAR is an ego-induced challenge. This challenge leads us to believe in duality; a total illusion and, ultimately, a waste of our life!"
