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 ... Read more

Bringing a Human Heart to a Maximum Security Prison
With less than 5% of the world’s population but nearly 25% of its prison population, America has the highest incarceration rate in the world. We imprison 2.3 million people today, as opposed to 300,000 during the 1970s.  Of those 2.3 million, 500,000 are non-violent drug offenders. Even more outrageous, building and operating prisons has become one of America’s largest and most profitable urban industries, with a huge financial investment in lobbying public policy for more severe drug and ...

Before you begin imagining me serene and p... Read more
Being Late is a Sign of Mastery
It’s one thing to talk about awareness and enlightenment; it’s another to demonstrate it. I cannot prove this, but I’m sure it’s accurate: all great sages throughout history gave their greatest teachings to their students at the point of action; they gave their most inspiring and truthful sermons about the field of action. That’s where the true wake-up occurs. It never occurs in words and ideas; that’s just more delusion, or spiritual ego—another fixed point of view without ... Read more
Firing God: The distinction between the saved and unsaved
[Contributor Cheryl A. Abram is going to share monthly excerpts from her soon-to-be-published book, Firing God. Publication date is October 2014, by Non-duality Press. Keep up with her on her blog.] Chapter 4. A Leap of Doubt   After years of behaving and thinking the way a Christian should behave and think, I began to question the lack of distinction between the life of the unworthy and unsaved and the life of the worthy and saved. Despite the fact that I began to love church and gen... Read more
on the nature of mind
ONE just beyond the thinking mind is an unending field of love and quiet beauty one can lie down there and live in eternity this field cannot be seen by the mind it cannot be known by the mind it can only be found and felt through Silence the thinking mind cannot know this kind of beauty and wonder the thinking mind has no feeling it has no soul it can only calculate distance and weight and price the thinking mind does not love it does not laugh it does not cry the thinking mind o...

I Don't Believe Gov. Nixon's "Special Message"
I am writing in response to your August 19th special message regarding the ongoing situation in Ferguson, MO. I don’t believe you. Not a word. You have received terrible advice from your advisors, from your director of communications, and from your speech writer. Their carefully crafted message, which you sadly delivered, is terribly inadequate and unbelievable. You are, no doubt, in way over your head. For this, I do feel sorry for you, but I feel more for the citizens of Ferguson and for... Read more
Calling all Radical Sages
I know people who are active in what is called the “non-duality” movement. Some host non-duality meet-ups, where only awareness is discussed. Nothing psychological or emotional, nothing to do with current events in the world. Just awareness. Like Tupperware or sex toy parties, but without the Tupperware or sex toys. No, I’m not going to dis them or the non-duality movement. After all, some of my work has even been labeled non-dual, a label I take off as fast as I can. (Yes, you can feel... Read more
My Song of Sudden Freedom
If we are seeking what is real, the real is seeking us. If we long to know the truth, the truth longs to know us. If we want to drown in love, love wants to live in us. These entities are everywhere, pounding on drums in the ceremonial centers of our cells—trillions of them. They flood into and from us. Be a child in this on-rushing love: don’t move. Stand still. Don’t try to find the real, or know the truth, or experience love. All effort pushes it away. Be like a lost child a... Read more
Pope Francis: the issue is not women
Somehow, somewhere I became hypersensitive to the ways in which girls and women throughout the world are disrespected, degraded, abused, violated, imprisoned, sold, raped, tortured, and killed. I have traveled through or lived in more than 20 countries. I have seen this everywhere, from put-downs at dinner parties to teenage sex workers to eight-year-old laborers. When I lived in Australia from 2005 – 2011, I taught authentic public speaking. The majority of my students were women, most of ... Read more
Healing the World is Possible
I know how to heal the world. I’ve known for 40 years. It’s simple but I don’t know if we’ll do it. I don’t know if it’s possible since it seems we prefer being sick, wounded, hungry and angry. I’m not giving up though. Here’s a bit of backstory. Forty years ago, I was living in an ashram in India. One morning around 5:30, I walked out of the kitchen where I had been cleaning and cutting fruits and vegetables for the communal lunch. The sun was just rising above mountain ri... Read more
