My Life with Gypsies: The Secrets of Sublime Storytelling
I am a story. You are a story. The Earth is a story. The cosmos is a story. History is a story. Religion is a story. Science is a story. Sacred and profane, heaven and hell, fact and fiction, God and the devil — these are all stories. We experience our lives and life in terms of the stories we tell — to ourselves and to each other. Whether our civilization and our species survive and thrive will be determined by the stories we tell. There is no escape. Stories create, define, sustain, ... Read more

Pay Attention
(In light of my sister Sandra's recent mishap, I'd like to remind us all to Pay Attention. There are worse byproducts than Sandra's broken ankle of not paying attention. Here is chapter two of The 5 Principles of Authentic Living.) Pay Attention Now that we’re Being Present and living from awareness, now that we are not determined or defined by our thoughtstream, we have to incorporate into our repertoire of living authentically the second principle: Pay Attention. The definition ... Read more

My Adventures as a Chauffeur & Bodyguard
My baby sister, Sandra, went off to visit friends in Chicago. Fist day there, she stopped to get gas in her rental car. A moment of inattention caused her to trip over a gas hose, fall, and break her right ankle in two places. She came back with her lower leg in a soft cast, with a diagnosis of "bad break; need surgery to insert pins and plate." Morale of the story for her? PAY ATTENTION! (The second principle of The 5 Principles of Authentic Living.) So, my quest for my life's true purp... Read more

Yuma: My Meeting with don Juan (by Myriam Negre)
(by Contributor Myriam Negre)  Though living in my native Barcelona, Spain, I had become a devotee of Carlos Castaneda's books; well, more of don Juan's teachings. I would have done anything to live in the middle of nowhere with don Juan and his companions, learning from them. I went to Los Angeles to visit a friend for a couple of weeks. One day I was telling her about how amazing it would be to go to the place were Castaneda met don Juan for the first time, at the Greyhound bus statio... Read more
Meme-Art: Seeking Meaningful Expression in 200 Characters
In early 2013, I started creating what I call “Meme-Art”, which I post on my Facebook page. These mini-artworks consist of an image on which I lay text, usually not more than 200 characters. Through these images, I endeavor to present coherent expressions: a meaningful insight, a useful principle, or a notion to contemplate. If I were a dancer, a meme-artwork would be but one, swift movement on stage; if I were a musician, a meme-artwork would be a sudden, spontaneous riff; if I were a ... Read more
Women: Your Orgasms are Shameful, Sinful, and a Danger to Society
Please, wait one minute! I am the messenger here, not the message. I don’t think this is true, but the United Kingdom government does, and I thought you ought to know about it. Personally, I love having a woman ejaculate with and/or on me. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had several lovers who were able to ejaculate love-juice in such copious amounts as to make my offering seem meager and miniscule. With one lover, swimming in her ejaculatory stream was like free-diving in a beau... Read more
Thoughts are Not a Problem. Not really. They're fine. Sort of.
I had a conversation recently with one of my “clients”—people with whom I have conversations that matter, which seem to benefit them so much they kindly offer me money in exchange for the value they receive from our conversations. I gratefully accept. I believe this is called, conventionally speaking, making a living. In this recent conversation, my conversation partner told me she was having an existential crisis. I asked clarifying questions, as I tend to do. “What do you mean?... Read more
