On the Path

On the Path there are only steps (even pedaling a bike is a kind of stair-stepping motion). Misssteps? I don’t think so. Only increasing awareness as we twist and turn on our path. Yesterday I took a ride on the bike path from the family home in West Tisbury, through the state forest out to…

Naming / Not Naming

If I was forced to use a label to describe myself I’d say I am a comfortably-lapsed Roman Catholic with a pronounced Taoist streak who has a lot of experience just listening. But as Lao Tzu said: “The Tao that can be named is not the Tao”. lol. During their development, the little “peace pucks”…

New Origin Waveforms

N.O.W. was named in part as a tip of the hat to Eckhart Tolle’s life-changing book “The Power of NOW”. It is also an acronym for New Origin Waveforms. N.O.W.’s New Origin Waveforms help you experience “awareness of being aware” –– experience your essential self, increasingly free from thought. This is the essence of a…

N.O.W.® Tone Therapy System for Musicians, Engineers and Producers

Stage fright, pre-show jitters, self-doubt, envy, comparison, judgment, perfectionism, past regrets and future fears, hollow “accomplishments”, loveless relationships, drug and alcohol dependency … because we’re so open and creative, musicians and engineers experience the challenges of being human in acute ways. Many of these sufferings brought me to a transformation that led to the development…

Life is Now, Not Later

N.O.W. was given its name for a number of reasons –– as a tip of the hat to Eckhart Tolle, as an acronym for its aural neuromodulation technology (New Origin Waveforms) and as a reminder that life is not a journey that takes time, but rather is a process of continuous, instantaneous awakening. Instantaneous awakening…

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”. These are some of the most comforting words I’ve ever read. 2500 years ago the Chinese sage Lao Tzu realized our “problems” are in our mind, they are thoughts, and in quiet stillness are they quietly transcended and new insights given the space to arise. A challenging situation encountered…
