I'm a twin who was born in Boston, Massachusetts, survived a dysfunctional family, pursued and lived my dreams, including becoming a Navy fighter pilot, finding myself by fully opening my heart, writing three books, siring four children ~ and I'm still living my ultimate dream by making a difference from a place of love, celebration and service. My Ph.D dissertation THE UNIFIED FIELD was chosen by Common Boundary and Noetic Science Institute, in their 1998 national dissertation contest, as one of the top three world finalists for combining spirituality and psychology. My ongoing heart centered work as a psychotherapist with veterans with PTSD, is the most satisfying work of my life. My online newsletter, columns and radio broadcasts are committed to the truth ~ as I see it ~ for only the truth is revolutionary.
The heart and soul of this story is Seniors and Veterans working together to make the Oakley community stronger and in the process serving as a model for other communities to emulate their success and dedication to service
All of Eisenhower’s warnings in his 1961 Presidential address have come true but now we are dealing with a Military-Industrial-Congressional complex of immense size and added danger to our Republic ~ which should become obvious to all in the upcoming mid-term elections.
Social inequality rules in America and the 2014 midterm election has been reduced to Kabuki theater as millionaire Republicans and Democrats rearrange the chairs on the deck of the sinking Republic while the main stream press tries to convince us that it all really matters.
I have witnessed the same reaction in combat veterans with PTSD (all having experienced the violence and atrocities of war) who once they touched the emotionally trapped child within themselves, have felt an overwhelming need to be in service from a place of love, joy and gratefulness. Here’s an example
In this time of growing wars, conspiracies, epidemics and other uncertainties, there are some sure things to savor and one is Bruce Bochy’s SF Giants making another run for the World Series championship.
In other words, ISIS is the noxious by-product of a fear driven U.S. foreign policy gone terribly wrong if not out of control ~ whereas the backdraft of America’s war of terror becomes a fearsome Frankenstein (ISIS) which we ourselves have created.
For myself, this Climate Change march is especially important for our children and grandchildren ~ for our inaction regarding global warming and climate change is putting their health and existence at greater and greater risk.
Having lived for over 30 years in the North Bay Counties of Sonoma and Marin, I have been a fervent Giants fan but when I moved to Contra Costa in 2010 for my work with combat vets with PTSD ~ I became swept up in Oakland A’s fever and have now reached a healthy parity in my team allegiance but can offer a fairly objective analysis of their playoff chances in 2014.
Patriotism is our last refuge as it is for all scoundrels ~ so wave the flag on 9/11 and praise our human sacrifice on that day and also pray that no one looks to deeply into that black hole of American history…..
Power corrupts, absolute atomic power absolutely morally corrupts, particularly when it is in the hands of the Military/Industrial complex with the power to control and destroy the world ~ whereas human life eventually becomes collateral damage as it did with the Atomic testing during the sixties in Nevada.
Being a twin is an exhilarating experience for I have been twice blessed ~ One for having a traveling companion on my 9 month journey to this planet, especially since we were not wanted ~ and secondly for spending much of my early childhood playing with my inseparable friend and companion while sharing so many delights together.
The military-style occupation of Ferguson, Missouri has ripped aside the thin veneer of democracy to expose a budding police state. This is what martial law looks like. It is interesting to note that the one country on this planet that is seen as the greatest threat to World Peace is the United States. (2014 WIN/Gallup International Poll)
Hiroshima must be remembered and understood as a warning and a wakeup call to the planet that it can no longer resist the universal urge to unite or we will surely perish as a species and a life sustaining planet.
Ode to a dead Palestinian child
Yesterday you were playing with your cousins on this sandy Gaza beach.
You were playing soccer and you had just scored a goal with your makeshift cloth beach ball.
You knew there was danger on the beach but you could not resist the beach and the cool ocean breeze…..
It is apparent that this in your face illegal Israeli land grab must be turned from a stumbling block into a stepping stone toward world peace before the Palestinians are completely eradicated ~ which appears to be the long term goal of the Israeli Zionists.
The open sore of man’s brutal inhumanity to man continues unabated in Gaza despite the cries of many of the world’s humanitarian leaders to end this Zionist and American sanctioned slaughter of occupied and oppressed civilians and their rightful defenders
Now let me set the record straight on another more palpable sports truth ~ It’s all over for East Coast Sports dominance ~ the West Coast is already dominant which will soon become obvious to Boston, New York and the rest of the East coast.
Dick Cheney is like a deadly and now dormant vampire who lives in the darkness and can only be truly eliminated by a wooden stake of truth driven into his treasonous heart of denial whereas the truth of 9/11 will finally be revealed as well as Cheney’s role in America’s greatest act of treason….
Charles Barsotti died this week at 80 years old but his New Yorker cartoons touched myself and millions of others with their wonderful quirky sense of humor and imaginative insights into profound truths which were both delightful and thought provoking
In other words, we are not all floating around in a static and disconnected Higgs quantum field of molasses but, instead, are all swimming in a Roland Unified Field of love, connection and soul consciousness ~ that permeates the universe.
