“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”

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”

Reliability and Intuitive Information

The sun comes up and the sun goes down and we trust it. Even when the scientists tell us that the sunlight we are seeing today was sent out from our past, is not even today’s sun, and we cannot even be certain that the sun has not already become extinct in real time…it justContinue reading “Reliability and Intuitive Information”

Tackling the Validity Issue for Intuitive Information

One of my business clients was interested in only a few narrowly focused commodities. I had worked with this client at least once a week, and sometimes more often, over the course of two years or more. While not every prediction was correct, he began to notice that the pattern of trading was on theContinue reading “Tackling the Validity Issue for Intuitive Information”

A Dog’s Intuition

It All Started With Separation Anxiety When Chaco the dog’s first human became ill and subsequently died, he began to show signs of severe separation anxiety. He would bark scratch, jump up and down, hide so I couldn’t tuck him away and leave him behind, lick his paws until they bled, and eventually try toContinue reading “A Dog’s Intuition”

Many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip…

“Resolve” is such a heavy word. No wonder we avoid it like the plague, peeking in once a year to see how far we have fallen or strayed from our good intentions, from our last year’s dreams and last decade’s desires. The very word itself feels like punishment: public humiliation for being weak and imperfect.Continue reading “Many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip…”

Choice With a Lower Case “c”

One would think, considering the headlines of the day, that the most significant choice facing us today has to do with elected and appointed leadership of the few over (or for) the many: dictatorships, democracies, courts, political parties, religious expression, economic and territorial imperatives, and varying definitions of terrorism. These apparent choices, however, are justContinue reading “Choice With a Lower Case “c””

Election Accountability With a Twist…

[First published 25 October 2012] I have an idea. What if before electing a President or Senator or Congressional Representative, say every 10 years, we were required to spend every 9th year trading places with someone – ANYONE else – in the country, or better yet, in the world? There would be no loopholes, noContinue reading “Election Accountability With a Twist…”
