Re: How A Witch Taught Me Love

Just out of curiosity, since she left have you every tried to empathize with her position, no matter how outrageous it might have and still might seem to you .. have you ever tried to put yourself in her shoes? Yes indeed. I clearly see that she knew not what she was doing. That she was controlled ...

Re: Be Still and Know...or A Return To Innocence

Ashley, I read that article the other day. I discovered Osho last year and am reading him rather exclusively just now. I find him to be a brilliant soul. Thank you for the link and commenting.

Re: How A Witch Taught Me Love

Last time I spoke to her was over 2 years ago. I spoke meaningfully to her. She seemed to understand some things. I've married since then and have not had contact with her. I hope and pray she finds the purpose for which she was born.

Be Still and Know...or A Return To Innocence

We were born with internal silence. We did not know words for some time after we were born. In the beginning we had no thoughts informing us about anything. We made no judgments.

Re: How A Witch Taught Me Love

The title really speaks of how I saw her before she became the object of my meditation.

The Miracle of Awareness

One Day In 2007 I went for walk one day in the bright sun and cool crisp ocean air of Rockport, MA, a sleepy peaceful sea-shore village on Cape Ann north of Boston where you can still leave your front door unlocked when going on an errand somewhere. Not much bad happens on this part of the island. W...
