One is All. All is One.


You can call me J.
I'm a dreamer and a storyteller.
Life fascinates me.

I'm unusual, and my life is more than a little strange, but despite all my old shadows I have a good heart. We all do.
I try to live and love as completely as I can.

I'm not the most updated page here, and I'm never the most popular, but I'll do what I can to inspire those who stop by.

I hope you find something to remember here.

♥ नमस्ते ♥

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.

What you hope, you will eventually believe. What you believe you will eventually know. What you know, you will eventually create. What you create, you will eventually experience. What you experience, you will eventually express. What you express, you will eventually become. This is the formula for all of life.

I can’t believe that God expects every human being to start from zero and to reinvent the wheel of life in their own small lifetime. We must build on the common “communion of saints” throughout the ages. This is the inherited fruit and gift which is sometimes called the Wisdom Tradition. It is not always inherited simply by belonging to one group or religion. It largely depends on how informed, mature, and experienced your particular teachers are. Most seminaries, I am afraid, merely exposed ministers to their own denomination’s conclusions and did not have time for much interfaith or ecumenical education, which broadens the field—from “my religion which has the whole truth” to “universal wisdom which my religion teaches in this way.” If it is true, then it has to be true everywhere.

Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. That statement, from science, holds an enormous and powerful insight. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see.

What if the way we perceive a problem is already part of the problem?

To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.

Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.

Enlightenment is always accidental. That does not mean that you have not to try for it, but your trying is not going to bring it. Your effort is not going to achieve it. But making the effort, searching in all directions in every possible way, some day it happens — not because of your efforts but because of your intense urge, a tremendous intensity like a flame within you. But it is always accidental; you cannot say, “It happened because I did that.” Otherwise, things would have been very simple.

Life has to be taken hilariously! Life is so full of laughter, it is so ridiculous, it is so funny that unless your juices have gone completely dry you cannot be serious. I have looked around at life in every possible way and it is always funny, whatever way you look at it! It gets funnier and funnier! It is such a beautiful gift of the beyond.
