It seems as if we decided somewhere along the way to take a rest from our natural place of love, light, and bliss

It seems as if we decided somewhere along the way to take a rest from our natural place of love, light, and bliss -- to come into this world of sadness, havoc, war, grief, and pain.  But those are merely the perceptions of this world generally foisted upon us by others.  Let go of the awful world of your senses and see beneath the form where all is perfection.

The bottom line is that there is only ONE


The bottom line is that there is only ONE -- no ifs, ands, or buts.  You can't have it both ways; the Universe's way and your way.  THAT'S not one.  


You don't get that choice; you only want to think you do.  But you don't.  


The universe offers you the one perfect existence -- and you can take it or die trying to have something else.  Most die trying -- but not before kicking and screaming along the way.


There is only One!


When are you going to get used to it, embrace it, and utilize this absolute truth?

Forgiveness is the ultimate letting go ...


Forgiveness is the ultimate letting go -- the deepest letting go you can do.  Coming to realize that since we're all one, nobody, no place, and no thing can work against us.  It's impossible.  


So give up the grudge and embrace the enemy.  


Embrace your fears, embrace your sicknesses, embrace your worries, and even embrace your reluctance to let go.


Besides, most of what you think you have to let go of never even happened.  Nine times out of ten it's just your ego messing with your serenity.


So take a deep breath; forgive it all; and exhale with a huge, loud sigh of relief.


And then go out and really, really, really enjoy your day!

Happy Rapture, Y'all!

[As you read this, please keep tongue planted firmly in cheek.]
Or just a new beginning?
Between thee and me, I know the world is an illusion. (OK, so all my nearest and dearest friends already know that quirky aspect of me!).

As such, I know that the reports of the impending end of the world were illusory hogwash.

And, although this does not bode well for the END OF THE WORLD 2012, I must say this .... the non-ending of the world is also illusory hogwash.

End, non-end, good, bad ... it's all part of the egoic story! 



And you can't shine hogwash!

If Harold Camping was correct in saying that the sinners would all perish and Jesus was coming back to take away the good people (he wasn't correct, as of 11:03 p.m.), I am delighted to say that I am one of the sinners left behind



As are, I suppose, are all the partiers, lovers, haphazards, ne'er-do-wells, and plain folk that I saw lingering and strolling on Connecticut Avenue, 18th Street, and U Street this evening. 

Anyway, HAPPY RAPTURE Y'ALL. 

Does this mean all plans are off for the morrow?

Embrace your shadow away ...


Amidst the furious fun of life, serious shadows may stalk you with bags full of worry, doubt and fear.  Their brows will be furrowed ... which indicates that they feel your pain.  


But what they really feel is their own agenda, to weigh you down with form and other illusions -- and to lead you down streets that go no where.  


Cheerfully decline your shadow's maneuverings with a loving embrace and a look of knowing.  Then cast your own universal light on to your shadow and send it back to the world of imagination where it belongs.


Worry, doubt, and fear are nothing.  Do not imagine them into being.  Stick with the furious fun of life; it will never do you harm.

Why you should consider buying through DREAMWalker Group: Explained



Simply put: my website at DREAMWalker Group provides an easy way for people to use the companies from which they normally buy books (and other items) -- with a twist.  


I take 40% from my commissions and use that to sponsor literary events and literary organizations. 


This isn't a gimmick -- though is sounds gimmicky! -- but it IS a way for all of us to give back to the suffering literary community.  I show right on my homepage how much I've currently earned and how much of that is slated for the literary community.


Let's face it: the literary community is under siege.

The Dying Bookstore Business Model (by The Electronic Author — News and Information for Self-Publishing, Site of Author Wallace Wang) explains better than I can right, here and now, what's happening now to and in the literary/commercial world.  It's terrible.  Small local bookstores -- the ones where you can actually browse or sit down and read part of a book -- are fast becoming a dinosaurs, or worse -- deceased.


And it's particularly horrific for bookstores that cater to specific groups -- such as travel bookshops, educational bookstores, and LGBT bookstores (see Gay Bookstores: A Dying Breed – an article by Jesse Monteagudo.)  


Heck, even the big ones are going under!


Now I'm not going to get all high and mighty and say I don't use Amazon.com or other online stores to buy my stuff -- because I'd be lying big time.  In my busy world, where I'm self-employed and trying to ilk the most productive time out of my day, it's just easier to buy on line and have a package waiting the next day.  That's the plain and simple truth.


Long story short: we're running out of options.  Pretty soon the only place to buy will be online.  Sad, unbelievable, unconscionable, unfair?  I guess it is what it is, so ...


Knowing that I'm probably no different than a lot of other folks, I decided to just make the items available on my website -- and then return 40% back to the community -- my community -- which is primarily the literary community.  Sure, others could use the money, but the authors, editors, publishers, and bookstores are really hurting.


I can't know for sure -- but I'm guessing the big companies aren't giving 40% back to causes -- any causes (except, possibly, political ones).  We can -- and ought to.

So please buy your things on my site -- and you have my promise to give 40% back.   And visit me daily to see how my numbers are doing!  Your visiting will help Google search engines, etc., find me.

Remember, 40% of $100 is only $40.00 back to literary causes; but 40% of $1,000,000 is $400,000.00 ... money literary causes could really, really use -- and soon.



The rest of the money will go to helping maintain this site and pay my mortgage, food, and running my small business.  One I reach a certain income ceiling -- say $15,000 -- I'll change the percentages and give even more to literary causes.  And dedicate my own time to writing more!


So please consider using my site to help authors, editors, publishers -- at least this way the money will be going back home.


Thanks for your consideration -- with gratitude,


Michael Walker

You can experience Truth all the time!


Let's be perfectly clear about one thing: nothing exists outside of truth.  Whatever you want to call truth -- The One, Love, God, Goddess, The Force, Divine Good, Zero Point Field, or Consciousness -- it's all that really exists.

One. Singular.  Nothing more.

Anything that appears to be separate from the one vital force of the universe is illusion.  Better yet, it's a very real permutation or wave of energy that, somewhere along the line we decided to grab on to and embrace -- and then embellish.  A germ of an idea that seems separate from The One -- but isn't.  Yet it seems so deliciously separate -- and human's egos are so deliciously creative and demanding -- that we permit our egos to create symbols to bring this energy into form and stories to make them seem more real.  

This attaches us nearly inextricably to our bodies and who we think of as our selves -- and then it takes most of us our entire lifetime to untangle the stories and remember that it's totally impossible to be outside of truth.

But you can do some things to make sure you stay more and more saturated and grounded in Truth.

Have you ever meditated or sat watching a sunrise or sunset and suddenly realized that time seemed had seemed to stand still -- and you were really, really engaged in the moment?  Or maybe you came out of a special moment and thought to yourself, Wow, where was I?  It felt as if everything just stopped!

Those moments are you being alone with you; and through practice you can make them a daily part of your life.  Feeling the Oneness between yourself and the universe can be the norm and not limited to those special moments you spend your life hoping to experience again.  

Practicing a daily routine of yoga, meditation, prayerful silence, spending time with nature, and a multitude of other simple spiritual endeavors can help.

Don't wait for your next holiday to experience your Oneness -- open up the doors today and know that you can have them all the time -- and for the rest of your life!


Here are some books that helped me on my own personal daily quest!

And here are some others that are on my "to read" list!

    Your actions are part of the Universe's intentions

    Do you really think that at the end of the day, anything that transpired that day was outside of God?  How can that even be possible?  It can't be.  Let go of your very human fears that you can somehow oppose the will of the Universe.  You can't.  Your actions are part of its intentions.  And ALL is well.

    The Importance of Forgiveness of Self and Others


    It's hard to understand that saying you ought to let go can be a form of holding on!  


    Or that the universe of eternal energy probably doesn't even notice if we're love addicts, meat eaters, bleached blonds, sex fiends, vegans, Buddhists, lesbians, dog lovers, or Madison Avenue executives -- no more so than the sun notices if you hit the snooze button one too many times before getting out of bed.  


    But our tiny little selves -- our egos -- notice.  Not a day goes by that the ego isn't trying to tie us in tight knots to the earth and all its heavy rules.  And it does this mostly by tricking us into judging our friends and enemies for doing the very things we hope we won't do, are afraid to do, or have been warned we'd better not do (but sometimes guiltily wish we could do.).  


    Step away from all that self-judgment and judgment of others; meditate, take a walk, hook a rug, make some soup.  Do whatever inspires your own Higher Self to sing -- and forgive the world for being what somebody else told you it shouldn't be.  


    Take reality into your arms, embrace it, and make it a world of love and forgiveness.  Observe the illusory dark energies and the ego chatter -- and effortlessly let them all go.  Breathe deep and invite forgiveness of yourself and others to clear away the baggage of the future, present and past.  


    Forgiveness really is the answer; and it begins with self-love and, then, love of others.

    Waking Up

    Lying in bed this morning -- pulling myself from a dream -- I decided to get up and move into the new day.  Totally aware of the potential of getting caught up in still another dream called `here and now', I made coffee, held quiet time for myself, and got grounded in the truth.  Dreaming, being unconscious, or waking up are all choices we make.

    If you find yourself hating, be gentle with yourself.


    Only two energies exist in all the universe -- love and fear.  And of those two -- fear is an illusion.  So only love exists in the universe and love has the capacity to dull all hate, dissolve all sadness, and cure all sickness. 


    If you find yourself hating, though, be gentle with yourself.  It's your human side clinging to its humanity.  Embrace that frightened part of yourself because it needs compassion just as your enemies require compassion.
