Dancing The Didache: 1. Giving and Receiving

There are only two paths in life:  There is the Path of Death and there is the Path of Life. You are either dancing in darkness . . . or you’re dancing in the light---the invisible, immeasurable light.  Welcome to the Didache!

One Last Cry

One last cry . . . that's what it's going to take to come out of your own, personal Egypt ( . . . bondage).  Whatever it is---that experience, that thing, that person from your past . . . that memory that just keeps gnawing at you, it is interfering with your present and keeping...

Minerals are "The Currency of Life", and major amounts, as well as traces of minerals, can be found in the mixture of plants, animal tissue,... Continue Reading →

Praying On The Down Low

Okay, time for a visualization. Imagine yourself in a "situation". You see yourself . . . praying. Maybe your hands are humbly pressed together, touching in an upward stance, or maybe they are clasped, feverishly in a tight fist; you are down, on both knees (or you could be sprawled---you've thrown yourself face-down, prostrating upon...
