Remembering Your San...

Remembering Your Sangha

I need to look at my social network time allocation. I realized during a conversation with a dear friend of long standing last night, that far too much of my time is spent researching facts for people who don’t care about facts and who are insistent on spreading lies and inciting hate and violence. I […]

TURN OFF YOUR COMPU...

TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER

It’s a good idea to turn off the computer every Now and Zen just to remember what the real world looks like, but its also one of the ways you can save yourself from one of these phishing virus scams. A loved one saw this warning on his laptop last week and ended up calling […]

Fight, Fright, Faceb...

Fight, Fright, Facebook

Understanding the proliferation of fake news (hate crimes) is an essential undertaking if we are to have any hope of equanimity or bridging our data gap and coming together in our communities to help one another realize the ideals of liberty, or prosperity or tranquility of the We The People.  I am horrified by the […]

The Morning Af...

The Morning After

If only we could take a pill that would make the pain go away.  The election of 2016 will forever be remembered for the backlash of bigotry, the monumental misogony and the raw racism of which the mainstream in this century has never known yet what many have faced for their entire lives.  Chances are […]

Demons and Demagog...

Demons and Demagogues

For some the trick or treat season brings back warm memories of childhood friends and fun, while others focus their energy on the the overtones of hallows eve and worshiping some sort of demonic practice.  The Bible says: “I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the […]
