The holidays are upon us in full force. Snow is falling today. Our presents are wrapped but there is no tree to put them under. We don't wish to kill a tree.We don't wish to perpetuate this buying stuff madness, but it is almost inevitable. Next year perhaps a moratorium on buying stuff. Buying stuff, our economic power as a consumer, is perhaps the single largest act of consciousness we can participate in regularly. Mindfullness is key.

We called off the trip to the folks because of the weather. Maybe go skiing instead? Ice skating.

Lessons From Ladakh

This is a wonderful video that highlights, for me, the beautiful and spiritually fulfilling life of Tibetans.

This is basically how I want to live. Especially if I get to wear those hats...

My Gospel

Love Your Self

Love Everything as Your Self

Love the World, because the World is You

Love the Universe, because the Universe is You

The Universe Loves You

The World Loves You

Everything Loves You

Love binds the Universe Together, Love is the Universe

Love is the Truth

Suffering is Ignorance of the Truth

Suffering cannot be transformed by Suffering

Love Transforms Everything Always

Life flows out from Love

Everything Changes

Life Begins and Ends, Suffering Begins and Ends

Each Life is a Manifestation of Love, Each Death is a Manifestation of Life

The Universe flows out in Life and flows back in Death

The Manifestations of The Universe are Holographic

Time and Space are Relative

Truth is Mystical

TV Reincarnation

In February 2009 television will change. The lower frequency airwaves that were utilized by broadcast television will be taken over by various corporations bidding for the right to own something that should be free for all, like air, and to use this valuable resource in order to make a profit. I sent off for a coupon to buy a converter box so that I could also watch the new digital tv, but I put it off until I realized that I had went past it's validity date. So now I realize that I have to cough up some more dough for a converter box or a new TV or a cable service or what have you. By god, what an enormous hassle and idiocy.

I have decided that instead I will do without television, and I will only watch movies at home.
