~Love has been mis-defined in our world for aeons~
~what most of us think of as love, is actually emotionalism, manipulation and an experience
which is given to us, rather than something we experience within and then radiate outwards~
~Love is a state of being which is known as consciousness and not an emotion~
~Physical attraction which is temporal has nothing to do with love~
~ Physical attraction is science at work~
~you can… Continue

To me, then, true criticism consists in trying to find out the intrinsic worth of the thing itself, and not in attributing a quality to that thing. You attribute a quality to an environment, to an experience, only when you want to derive something from it, when you want to gain or to have power or happiness. Now this destroys true criticism. Your desire is perverted through attributing values, and therefore you cannot see clearly. Instead of trying to see the flower in its original and… Continue

(Detail from "Lenticular cloud")
Given its structure and contents, the second part of “Leftoverturned” could have been entitled “Informaëlstrom II” (ref: "1000 Radios"), but because of the undeniable influence of Modest Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain,” the full… Continue

Empty Mind, No Mind, whatever you want to call it, is an awesome idea/practice. So very very awesome. What it has to do with interior decorating, no one knows.Because there is nothing to be known....
Most Western ideas about feng shui are utterly wrong and generally based on a variety of weird concepts pulled from European folklore and New Age marketing — which are in turn marketed as "contemporary and practical" feng shui.
Despite all… Continue

The back ground music by Omar Akram
Omar:"In a world where communication and understanding between cultures is sometimes difficult, I hope my music can serve as a form of international language that crosses any cultural barriers. Having lived and traveled in many countries, I have come to realize that we need to embrace aspects of each culture that make them unique and special. What some people see as problematical differences, I see as our planet's entire cultural… Continue

"If Tomorrow Never Comes"
If I knew it would be the last time
that I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.
If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I… Continue

The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and wayshowers. After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo adults of today. However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born, and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late twenties and early thirties who are about to take their place as leaders in the world. Indigos continued to born up to about 2000, with increasing… Continue

Mexican Orchid For La Florita
aco picked this orchid for La Florita, his love, during the Festival of the Dead in Oaxaca. He was to meet her in the Zócalo at Zaruela's. He waited and waited and paid the mariachi to play Una Paloma Blanca over and over. They didn't mind. He also was heavy handed with the liter of El Presidente he had at the table.
He cradled the orchid as he would a wounded bird and splashed ice water on it for hours and finally it began to… Continue

Miguel and Paloma
y beautiful Paloma, there was a time in my life when I was not calm. I was a vessel with a tattered sail tossed about in an ominous sea.
As a young man, I had become quite restless and when I finally was of age I went to sea. It was no place for a young boy, but the closeness to death every week helped me grow the body of a man and the mind followed. We were a rough bunch and I always tried to remain a gentleman. I studied while at sea and… Continue

Lavender Orchids For The Queen of Light
was born without sight in San Paolo. My dear parents went to God shortly thereafter from the tainted water in the street. I lived in a box of a house in the Thieves’ Ghetto. I had to beg for food or visit the garbage heap as a last resort. I always thought I could see shadows and light but probably not. The darkness was bad for the child and the adult as they had to lead me through the barrio to the piles of garbage that we ate. I had… Continue

o you remember coming back from the long hike to the ruins, burning from the sun, to this beautiful room full of evening light, sheer mosquito netting and the Aztec sun orchids that adorned our room? My only flora, do you remember? We had a few cold Negra Modelos and you put lemons in yours, as you cared not for the yuppie lime. I always laughed at that. You were always so different than anyone I ever knew.
You laid the vase on the bed cradled in the pillows and just stared… Continue

I woke way before dawn today and again my heart was telling me lies. Before I had the morning tea, my head began to remind me how old I was. The sadness washed over me like the Scottish rain in the Highlands. I had been in a state of solitude for half of my life and it looked like the other half was headed that way. I had a stone house I had built and a sturdy farm horse. As always, I planted a sumptuous garden, as blooms are food for the eyes.
I needed to take a long walk to… Continue
