Choice III: Keeping At It

If one single thing distinguishes this new millennium in my mind, it will be the active and fully conscious exercise of choice. It is only the intensity of choice that can break the oppositional pull of dualism, provide the synthesis between contradictions, handle, if never entirely eliminate dilemmas, and move the human spirit to theContinue reading “Choice III: Keeping At It”

The Color of Music

Recently a colleague came to dinner. The conversation was East Coast heady, covering decades of experience, emotion, and intellectual understanding. We laughed, traded professional and bawdy stories, discovered surprise. All was going along quite well until a question shot out like a bolt from the blue… “Why did you stop singing, Helen?” my musically savvyContinue reading “The Color of Music”

Are We There Yet? On the Record in October 2001

March 2020 I posted an intuitive insight on the 19th of October, 2001, going “On the Record,” about certain global events, then followed with an update in early 2015. Somehow both statements seem as relevant today as they did almost nineteen years ago, immediately following the collapse of the World Trade Towers in New York.Continue reading “Are We There Yet?

Choice and National Culture Revised: Bringing the Question Home

National culture is a blueprint for choice; it is made, not born. How shall we make and remake our national culture today? What is our redefinition of “destiny?”

My Big Toe

I returned from a most extraordinary trip to the East Coast only to discover that all that walking around had damaged my right big toe. It was blue purple, bleeding, swollen, looking as if the nail would pop right off at the slightest touch. We walked a lot in New York City, but I hadContinue reading “My Big Toe”

Personality Conflicts May Not Be What They Seem

Like many of us, I assumed that personality conflicts in the workplace were the result of having to deal with difficult people. What I know now is that most – if not all – workplace personality conflicts derive from deeper structural issues, even if the other person is not particularly somebody you’d want to hangContinue reading “Personality Conflicts May Not Be What They Seem”

“It’s Only Meat”

The killing, skinning and dismembering of a healthy two-year-old giraffe named Marius in front of child and adult spectators at the Copenhagen, Denmark zoo has haunted me for days. I am still trying to sort out my visceral feelings about this, and trying to understand and share the public outrage and concern on all sidesContinue reading ““It’s Only Meat””

Sochi Games

 The threat of toothpaste and gel-based insurgent attacks on flights to and from the Sochi Winter Olympics could have an interesting twist. What if, in the process of protecting flights by removing predominantly safe products in travelers’ bags, a different sort of threat is actually put into motion? What if the intelligence gathered and disseminatedContinue reading “Sochi Games”

The Battle for Dominance

A Non-Scientific Approach to Singularity

The search for world peace is ultimately based on a relentless yearning for the Singularity, the remembrance of complete synchrony in that moment just before all remembrance fades into oblivion. Singularity is the siren’s sound that calls us home for dinner: home for alignment and attunement; home for repair of the universal heart of being.Continue reading “A Non-Scientific Approach to Singularity”

Alternate Futures

We could continue along what seems to be our current path, exhausting the resources on earth and colonizing other planets in the same way we have colonized this one. We could do that and be scientifically thrilled and justified in our behavior from a particular point of view. Alternatively, we could skip into that infiniteContinue reading “Alternate Futures”

Detachment From the Outcome

If you believe that investment in the outcome is the true mark of loyalty to your company, you have some homework to do now. Detachment from the outcome does not mean you no longer care. It means that you are willing to let your ego and your fear step aside for a moment. If youContinue reading “Detachment From the Outcome”

YES!!

For me the most important word in any language is “Yes!” “Yes” represents the transformation from either-or to both-and thinking. It is the fusion of dualities, the essence of choice, the claiming of personal and collective responsibility. It is ending the need to blame or shame, the need to dominate or annihilate, the need toContinue reading “YES!!”

North Korea (Private emails written by Helen on 18 Dec 2011 and 31 Mar 2013)

Written 18 Dec 2011 The dominoes fall – still again. Part of the surprise, even though all knew [Kim Jong Il] was about to go. No amount of orchestrating and planning can make them “behave” in ways others in the West wish they would. (They means the North Koreans.)…. Be on the lookout. There areContinue reading “North Korea (Private emails written by Helen on 18 Dec 2011 and 31 Mar 2013)”

Synchronicities

I awaken from a powerful dream about a family member, and two hours later I receive great news from a closely connected relative. I am having dinner conversation at home on a particular subject, and the very next day I receive an email from someone in my distant past related to that very subject, orContinue reading “Synchronicities”

All means ALL!

To whom does the right to the pursuit of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness belong? Citizens, non-citizens, certain classes of citizens or non-citizens, certain countries, only the chosen by whatever definition is prevalent at the time? What about the rights, if any, of the unconscious, unaware, and even inorganic, such as the planetContinue reading “All means ALL!”

The Importance of Surprise and Trust in the Intuitive Process

Surprise is the single most important clue that you have stumbled into the realm of the intuitive. Often what doesn’t make any rational sense right now makes a whole lot of sense in the larger scheme of things, but you won’t be able to know for sure until later. In the meantime, you have toContinue reading “The Importance of Surprise and Trust in the Intuitive Process”

Boston Marathon Events

On the record: the Boston events reflect acts of domestic terrorism that are Tea Party and militia based. There is always the possibility that external groups can make events appear to be triggered from within, and also the possibility that domestic groups can attempt to make events appear to be triggered internationally. In addition, inContinue reading “Boston Marathon Events”
