The Pacific Northwest Earthquake & Tsunami (The REALLY Big One)

The Pacific Northwest Earthquake & Tsunami (The REALLY Big One)

Jul 16

We now know that the Pacific Northwest has experienced forty-one subduction-zone earthquakes in the past ten thousand years. If you divide ten thousand by forty-one, you get two hundred and forty-three, which is the average amount of time that elapses between earthquakes. We are now three hundred and fifteen years into a two-hundred-and-forty-three-year cycle. When the next full-margin rupture happens in the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America. FEMA projects that nearly thirteen thousand people will die in the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. Another twenty-seven thousand will be injured, and the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million…

Andrew Cohen & The Dark Side of Enlightenment

Andrew Cohen & The Dark Side of Enlightenment

Jun 05

As human beings, we all have the tendency to focus too strongly on the vertical, spiritual side of our natures, or too strongly on the horizontal, human side of our natures. In order to live healthy, happy, balanced lives, we have to balance and integrate these two forces. When we swing too far one way or the other it’s only a matter of time before we get into serious trouble. This situation that arose around Andrew Cohen is a text-book case of what can happen if vertical and spiritual perspectives are overemphasized…

To Thine Own Self Be True — Or Else…

To Thine Own Self Be True — Or Else…

May 25

The advice, whether from Shakespeare or a modern self-help guru, is common: Be true to yourself. New research suggests that this drive for authenticity — living in accordance with our sense of self, emotions, and values — may be so fundamental that we actually feel immoral and impure when we violate our true sense of self. This sense of impurity, in turn, may lead us to engage in cleansing or charitable behaviors as a way of clearing our conscience…

David Spangler: Honoring The Unseen Forces Of Life

May 17

David Spangler writes: “Just as we inhabit an invisible world of bacteria and microbes which can affect us, so we also inhabit an invisible world of subtle, non-physical energies (much of which we produce through our thinking and feeling) that can also affect us. Realizing this and taking it into account when thinking about how we can serve the wellbeing of the world is, I believe, a critical and vital step that is as needed in our time as the germ theory of disease was two hundred years ago…”

New Book Series: ‘The Alchemy of Dreams’

New Book Series: ‘The Alchemy of Dreams’

May 13

David Sunfellow writes: “Let me cut to the chase: Wesley Wyatt is the most skilled person I know at dream work and dream interpretation. His abilities with dreams arise out of a lifetime of working with his dreams and the dreams of others. I know because I’m his brother. We not only learned how to work with our dreams together, but we have spent four decades sharing dreams and honing our skills. Whether you are someone new to dreams and dream work, or a seasoned veteran, everyone can benefit from the treasures my brother has collected over the years. Do yourself a favor. Buy his books. And then buy a few copies to share with those you love. While we are all born with angelic companions, in the form of dreams, only those who actually know how to work with these powerful, magical forces can make the most of their gifts. My brother can show you how to tap the same forces that have guided, protected, healed, and inspired many of humankind’s most celebrated dreamers. The Alchemy of Dreams, in other words, are spiritual dynamite. These books contain pearls of great price that can make everything better, deeper, healthier, happier.”

“The optimist is right. The pessimist is right. The one differs from the other as the light from the dark. Yet both are right. Each is right from his own particular point of view, and this point of view is the determining factor in the life of each. It determines as to whether it is a life of power or of impotence, of peace or of pain, of success or of failure…”
