A wise and crazy friend recently told me a story that illustrates a moment of clarity: erasure of judgment, beauty in perceived imperfection, the recognition of an example of standing in one’s own power, acceptance and resulting joy … Here is what he wrote:
I remember one of the greatest days of my life… I was 18 years old. The ultimate adventurer…….party, passion and pastrami…….I was bulletproof! I actually volunteered to join the Marine Corps. There I was driving with my friends on spring break in Florida. In front of us was a car moving painfully (for me/us) slow. A little old lady who could barely see over the dash board was at the wheel…..and there was no force known to man that was going to get her to move any faster than about 20 mph. I thought what a useless, incompetent human being. “Survival of the fittest” – “She should be in a home and out of the way. It is not right to have to put up with this shit! We have an important beach party to get to!!!!”
Then it hit me like a ton of bricks! (so did about 6 beers)…….This woman was not incompetent or a useless underachiever…………she Totally Owned the road and her long and experienced life……on her terms ….in her way….in her time!!! In an instant she went from all I despised to all I have ever wanted to be since that day!
At that time I lived in a world that was wrong and could be better if it was the way I thought it should be. This wonderful gray haired angel lived in the world just as it was and just as she was. It is a difficult word….but I’ll say it anyway…..Perfection!
Fun facts about lucid dreaming in this article (link below) … Australian aborigines have a lucid dreaming history longer than the Egyptians, but perhaps they meant written or pictorial record that Westerners consider definitive.

A few days ago I received a link to a mind-blowing account of synchronicity reported by Dean Radin on YouTube. Dean Radin is an amazing parapsychologist who is the author of three books including the award-winning The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997), Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006), and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award winner, Supernormal (Random House, 2013). I am a great admirer of his work.
After sharing this video on FaceBook I received this wonderful account of a somewhat similar synchronicity from a friend, Jon Decker, a retired educator and chiropractic doctor. He has kindly allowed me to share it with you, dear reader:
“I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in June of 1988 and received my Pa license to practice in September of same year. I went to work with my former Chiropractor, who had a very successful practice in Philadelphia. Although I was a 38…
