  • Becoming a Truth Seeker

    Becoming a Truth Seeker

    What is exciting to me is seeking the truth about the world and this thing we call life. Who am I? Why am I here? Who or what is God/Source/The Intelligent Infinity? What is the purpose and meaning of life? What do I find value in? What is meaningful to me? If the unexamined life […]

    Take Your Power Back

    Life is difficult, being human is difficult, and to live well we must accept that.

    Many years ago there was Buddhist temple in Thailand that was being invaded by a neighboring country.
