Peace and Faith Are Conjoined

“Peace and faith will not come separately” So says A Course In Miracles. Yesterday my partner Alene and I were talking about trust and patience, patience and trust –– which comes first? We came to the conclusion they are joined, like peace and faith, as the Course points out. This feels right, transcendence of duality.…

The N.O.W. Moment and Spacious Stillness

One of the joys of living on Martha’s Vineyard is feeling the spaciousness defined by bare oak trees. The slow-to-arrive spring and lack of leaves (even in early May) gives me opportunities to notice the space between the trees as much as I notice the trees themselves. Observing the space between trees triggers awareness of…

“Stop thinking, and end your problems”.

“Stop thinking, and end your problems”.

N.O.W. as Teacher / Learner

In my last post I talked about N.O.W. being a Teacher of Peace. Today I’d like to present the idea that N.O.W. not only teaches you, but also learns from you. But first, an interesting back story … … At Burning Man 2013, the Institute of Noetic Sciences conducted an experiment in collective consciousness. The experiment…

Peace, Problems and Perception

“Stop thinking, and end your problems” Lao Tzu wrote in the Tao Te Ching. Like most statements in the Tao Te Ching, this one can be unpacked to reveal an insight. Let’s begin with the word “problems”. I believe Lao Tzu uses the word “problems” to describe situations the mind has perceived, seized upon and…
