Gratitude and Thanksgiving—2020—Honoring Vicki

A couple of weeks ago I had a bad hair day. If you are a living, breathing female you get it. Usually, even when we’re tempted to obsess we can take a beat and get over it. I suggest you follow that coping strategy instead of what I did. Trust me on this. Otherwise, you too could end up looking like Amy Klobuchar or Elizabeth Warren—who for despite any political savvy are not our favorite fashion gurus. There was definitely a glitch in the dialogue with my beautician, who whacked off a bushel of hairx in a matter of seconds.

Indiana Jones and the Citizens for Consciousness

Joseph Campbell created a framework for the spiritual path which he called “The Hero’s Journey.” The heroine, who is always flawed, starts out on her journey filled with hope and inspiration, endures a few dark nights, and faces repeated run-ins with her weaknesses. At the pinnacle of her suffering she has a breakthrough, realizes that she and God are one, and is inspired to be of service to others. (LRH, Self Belonging) In the midst of our collective pre-election jitters, we lost Sir Thomas Sean Connery, a 20th century movie icon, who died on October 31st at the age of 90.

On Politics And Spirituality

Based on the state of things it would appear that not everyone on this planet  is coming from love and light. So isn’t it crucial that we shift from a fear-based reality, where we are pitted against each other in survival mode—to a model of tolerance and compassion before we annihilate ourselves?                                                   ~  Happily Ever After… Right Now A wise, insightful professor once described politics as “the sagacious science of the control of others.” David Wilcock, best-selling author of The Synchronicity Key, states that “the big game of politics has always been about the manipulation of perception. Politicians find out who will generate the

“We are One Single Tribe”—T’Challa, Blank Panther (Chadwick Boseman)

Out of some combination of curiosity and civic duty, I tuned in to segments of the DNC and the RNC conventions. I must say both events brought up some real concerns about humanity’s level of attention to the wake-up calls alerting us to upgrade how we operate—or suffer the consequences. The upgrade, in my estimation, would include taking personal responsibility that rejects projection, blame, and any lies that might falsely fortify the goal of looking good, or getting ahead—whether personally or on a public platform. Sadly, as we all know too well, the political landscape does not reinforce the upgrade model. Instead,

“Let this be your heart’s deepest yearning; to become all of those things which you are tempted to seek from another. And in your becoming, you will get that there is nothing to get.”—Happily  Ever After…Right Now. —Luann Robinson Hull, second edition to be published August 18, 2020 These are powerful and unprecedented times–perhaps times that are ripe for healing our human wounds–those raw places in our hearts and souls that can provoke feelings of separation and strong positions on this or that. Such a propensity can alienate us even further from those with whom we disagree, while standing firm

“The Second Mountain” by David Brooks

David Brooks, author of The Second Mountain, is a journalist after my own heart. In his latest, extraordinary book, Brooks weaves his own responses to life’s unexpected experiences together with those of scientists and philosophers. Brooks offers meaningful insights about how he rebounded after toppling off the first mountain of life by choosing service to others over self. After reaching the pinnacle of what may have appeared to be “success” on that first mountain of life, you might be thrown some kind of a curve ball—a death, divorce, job termination—or something else. Brooks believes it is at that point that

On Dragonflies, Frogs, and Slugs

“How do you free yourself? In the deepest sense, you free yourself by finding yourself.” –Michael Alan Singer, The Untethered Soul During this interesting time of sequestering over the last few months, I’ve found that among the many challenges have been great gifts. One of those is having had the unusual privilege of spending time with my four-year-old granddaughter, whose unusual kindness and compassion I find to be remarkable. Among her many ways of demonstrating those qualities is with her tenderness toward creatures which most would find disgusting—namely frogs, slugs, and worms. She’s spent hours being entertained by them (even

Consciousness and the Red Cardinal: Learning to Love the Questions

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you…” – The Gospel of Thomas In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a character who was so focused on his good looks and accomplishments that he was incapable of loving another, which eventually caused his demise. Over the years, he’d had his share of women all of whom had eventually seen thru his external disguise. Nonetheless, there was one steadfast admirer who deeply loved him, and despite all

Science and Creationism

Several weeks ago, someone asked me if I’d ever studied atheism.  Over my 25 years of researching human consciousness, science and spiritual growth, I had to say the topic hadn’t crossed my radar.  Apart from having read The Origin, where Dan Brown pits creationism against science, which was interesting (though not convincing), I’ve never had the slightest inclination to explore the subject. In accepting the challenge, I was astonished at the plethora of links that came up to explore: atheism vs deism, atheism vs Catholicism, atheism vs nihilism, atheism vs humanism—the list continues. After reading these edicts until I was cross-eyed, I
