What if What We Think is Real is a Lie? The epistemology of the term religion is the French religere, meaning to bond together or unite. Unfortunately, religion has not lived up to its name and has, indeed, reflected our politics which is about warring divisions between nations, peoples and even the sexes. This article challenges that dualistic stance in the hopes that we can come to a resolve and enter a state of peace.

The Incarnate Sophia of God: Is Christ Separate from Us? For the sake of religion, we need to dump our current understanding of religion. In its epistemological roots, the term means to bind together or connect. This is more than just joining a church, synagog or temple. Religion in its essence is the love of Life. All else, all theories, theologies, etc are just words. And words are nothing less than vibrations emerging from one's mouth that someone else interprets.

Community Rebuilds: Energy and Affordable Housing for Low Income Families Today programs for the poor are being cut by governments beholden to megalithic corporations. Perhaps it is time for us to think outside of the box, to create a new "meme" as Deep Ecologist Daniel Quinn state, in which we can build an ecologically sound culture while also eradicating poverty. The use of community resources for low cost, bale housing is one of the ways in which people are becoming independent. We need more.

Re-empower Yourself: Where Do We Begin To Heal? If we are going to save ourselves and the planet, we need to do some serious contemplation. This article speaks to how the "Bible's" "Book of Genesis" and how it spoke to the world. The stories are not true, as in factual. They are true in terms of the patterns the ancients were seeing. The question is, can we get to the "jist" of the pattern in fostering real change? Bottom Line: Can we foster planetary life?

Real Change: Only from the Inside Out It is time that we move beyond being of this philosophy or that philosophy or even this religion or that religion. In Truth, Truth has no religion. Not of the denominational kind. But, it you know the origin of the term, religere, you realize that the term means "to connect". It is a verb, not a noun. To connect is to gaze passionately in the eyes of those you love. And, it is to experience the world in all its wonder.

Meditative Explorations of the World as Sparked by Shaman Don Oscaara Miro-Quesada This article speaks to the work of Peruvian Shaman don Oscar Miro-Quesada. It is also a passionate cry to move beyond our idealisms, or thoughts about reality, in order to heal on both personal and planetary levels.

The Transformative Work Regarding Death and Dying of Uma Girish "To be or not to be, that is the question" wrote Shakespeare. Ultimately, we need to let go. How do we process that letting go? Does denial and fear of death keep us from living fully? Does this question involve more than the loss of a loved one? Are we also seeing the death of our modern civilization? How are we handling it? These are questions I ask as I write regarding the death and dying work of Uma Girish.

Bridging the Great Divide Divide and conquer is the driving motive of modern day. Democrat vs Republican, liberal vs conservative, Christian vs Muslim,vs Jew all keeps us mesmerized in our blindness to the larger patterns. The question is,how much of this divisional politics is form philosophy and how much is driven by a conscious motive by the corporate gov't empire? Who knows. The real question is can we each see the pattern and say, "no more?"
