I dedicate this site to the memory of my stepdaughter, Heather, who was murdered on Thanksgiving 2017. I want to chronicle some of the events and spiritual insights that happened. It is my hope that this may help some other souls who stumble upon this site. Maybe some good can come off this after all (read more here).  ~ May 2018

It is not Time that is moving, but Consciousness -- by way of choosing.

An old Zen story goes like this:

Two monks were arguing about a flag in the wind.
The first: “It is the flag that is moving.”
The second: “It is the wind that is moving.”
A master passed by, and remarked:  “It is neither.  It is the Mind that is moving.”

What we have here in a nutshell is a remarkable insight about time and space.

Our everyday experience makes us believe that we are swept along in the moving present, embedded in a river of time ever flowing forward.

Now consider another way, that instead it is our consciousness that moves through the infinite crystal of All-that-is – by way of our choices.

Everything that can be, every possibly alternative, already is.   And we, that is, our consciousness, traverse this space of infinite possibilities by way of our choices.  

That is what we do, at every “moment: choosing among alternatives.   

It is not so much that we are moving... It is not so much that we are even thinking,

It is rather very simple:  we are always choosing.   

Choosing our path.

Choosing our self.

Thereby, we are creating ourselves and our soul.

And

Thereby we appear to be moving  forward in time and space.

Namaste — I bow to you and the Divine in you.
