Trust

Something major happened yesterday. It was a personal father-son milestone. One that I will likely never forget. It has do with trust. My wife still breast-feeds our 19-month old baby boy. So she’s got something I’ll never have when it comes to comforting him: breasts and, more importantly, breast milk. Whenever he’s scared, or just […]

Is it really just a Coincidence?

I used to believe in coincidence. I used to be a stubborn atheist, confident that all notions of spirituality and divinity were bed time stories created to lull the insecure and help them cope with the inevitable darkness of our world. A drug, to help the weak temporarily escape the cruelty of nature. Today I’m […]

The annihilation of complete species. Perhaps even our own demise looms on the horizon… Sometimes it’s overwhelming. To the point where I want to shout: “What can I do!? I’m just […]

Asking for Guidance

The universal consciousness field, or source field, is present throughout everything in the universe. The source field is that mysterious force that underpins the weird and wacky world of quantum mechanics. Quantum physicists tell us that all atoms are actually 99% empty space. Physical particles make up only 1% of all matter. It’s just that […]
