About Me


Grow and Enjoy


A human male


Let the business of the world count for but little in your heart for we have here no city long abiding.

Always love, always wonder, always be mindful, always be in the present.

I am me, and I am we, and we are I.

"Truth is a pathless land, Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, nor through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation, and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection. Man has built in himself images as a sense of security religious, political, personal. These manifest as symbols, ideas, beliefs. The burden of these dominates man's thinking, relationships and his daily life. These are the causes of our problems for they divide man from man in every relationship."
- Krishnamurti

An extraterrestrial visitor examining the differences among human societies would find those differences trivial compared to the similarities.

Our lives, past and present and our future are tied to the sun, the moon, and the stars... We humans have seen the atoms which constitute all of our nature and the forces that sculpted this work... and we, who embody the local eyes and ears and thoughts and feelings of the cosmos, have begun to wonder about our origins... star stuff contemplating the stars, organized collections of ten billion billion billion atoms, contemplating the evolution of nature, tracing that long path by which it arrived at consciousness here on the planet earth... Our loyalties are to the species and to the planet. Our obligation to survive and flourish is owed not just to ourselves but also the cosmos ancient and vast from which we spring.

We are one species.
We are star stuff harvesting star light.

-Carl Sagan-

"Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns and calls me on and on across the universe, jai guru deva om."

-John Lennon-
