Special harvest

There's something very renewing about greeting the sun at dawn dressed in nothing but a pendant.


“We are starstuff…”

We are starstuff, we are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. As we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective.

Nothing supernatural exists

If something changes the universe, it can be measured. If it can be measured, it can be analyzed. If it can be analyzed, experiments can be performed.



The patterns we see in the universe may be nothing more than longing and human conceit. But if using those patterns gives us a desired result, then the patterns are a useful fiction. The "ultimate reality" doesn't necessarily matter or even our belief doesn't matter, if we behave as if we believe and successfully reach our goals.


Gets sent out for snacks

The point is that the ‘I' part of you, the ego, gets sent out for snacks while the universe has it's way with the rest of you. The ego doesn't really know what's happening until it gets back and finds the tangle of sheets in the bedroom. And all the cushions scattered in the living room. And your naked body in the front yard. Not something your ego would have chosen, but the rest of you is pretty happy how things turned out.


Written at the crossroads

The universe is written in mathematics. The Mystery is written in poetry. We're born where the two meet.

At the crossroads.
— NeoWayland, Kissed by the Lady Moon
