An application of impossible things

Can forgiveness play a role in criminal justice … A beautiful, gritty example of applying “impossible” things:

Read article

Thinking lately about the opportunities we’re offered to rise above ourselves, to respond in new ways to what we might perceive as unforgivable or incomprehensible. This article is an example of what we’re all capable of finding within ourselves as an expression of our true natures.

The perspective from which we view anything creates our reality. The actions we take based on our perspectives creates our shared experience. A shift in perspective can change the world …

I believe that forgiveness is never impossible, even when it seems so. It is always the best choice of action, even if trying with intention and attention is the closest you can get to it for now. forgiving others and ourselves is an invitation to a state of grace – inner peace, connection, an expression of the wisdom of our whole self.

Me on TV – the uneXplained

The unXplained, TV show on which I’ll appear, premieres July 28th at 11pm (Pacific time?) on the Biography channel.

I don’t know the air date for “my” episode – will let you know if/when I know.

Should be an interesting program, maybe just watch them all!

(I don’t know of episodes will be available to watch online – I’ll try asking the producers again and let you know …)

It may appear that I’m neglecting this blog, not having posted for a few weeks.

Our world is filled with voices scrambling to be heard. Facebook, Twitter, blogs, Linked In, television, magazines, websites, billboards, …

Participating in this level of noise through blogging sometimes feels like a dis-ease.

Publishers and publicists and friends assure me that posting every few days is necessary to build an audience, which is necessary to “get the message out there.” I have a little different way of thinking about that.

I believe that adding my voice to the mass of voices is only of value if I do it because it’s fun (a broad category, I admit), not because I’m trying to catch people’s attention through dogging their attention. I believe the people who need the information in my book will find it, and relatedly that the public exposure opportunities that the book needs will make themselves evident by sounding interesting and/or fun for me.

And I believe the things that I’ve said in my book: that I set my intention through thought and intention, then let go. I don’t have to dog it or manipulate an audience, I hope. Call it an experiment in application.

Silence is one of the beauties of life. Waiting, anticipation, sitting quietly for so long that we lose the hunger and surrender to the moment, the now, the humble present here right now … the soft cool breeze, the scent of creosote, crickets singing, dogs barking far off down the valley. This night is breathing.

If I’m trying to cram fifteen tasks into a day, I will begin to lose my balance. If I try to post X number of profound thoughts or observations each week, am I being true or just chattering? Silence is sometimes necessary to quiet the mind, open the flow of creative thought, and ground myself here in the rich and mystifying physical world.

The regular posts will probably start up again eventually … And fade off again, and reappear. Even blogs have a rhythm and seasons, perhaps.

Thank you for finding this blog worth reading among all the choices that you have available … I hope you’ll enjoy the silence as much as you do the posts; I do.

A little zen.

Watch for me on TV … the unXplained: Biography Channel

A new television show called the unXplained will air starting in August on the Biography Channel.

This is the show that filmed a Lifelines program at The Monroe Institute in March 2012, which I attended. During that Lifelines program, we thirteen participants “retrieved souls” who were stuck.

At least three of the individuals that I helped during the Lifelines program have been identified in historical records. The names, dates and places that they either lived, died, or both were matched up.

The film crew came to my home two weeks ago to conduct more interviews with me concerning those three individuals as well as talk to me about my experiences in Iraq, and follow me around while I did “normal” things (ugh! 😛 ).

I’ll post dates for the Monroe Institute show(s) that I’m included in when the producers let me know the dates …
