There is a lot of talk that we are living in the “End Days”. What does that mean? Those familiar with the Bible and the prophecies within are seeing current events as prophecy fulfilled. Does End Days mean the end of the world? The answer is NO. It means an end to a system. A new system is at hand. We have recently entered the “Age of Aquarius.” A new age indeed. The divide between the left and the right has permeated to the core of the American family. I believe that a good thought exercise is to begin to contemplate the “First Days.” What is your Creation Story? How did existence come about? Was it random? Is it impossible to know? Is it found in some religious dogma? If something is coming to an end then it had a beginning. What is the cause? This is the inquiry of the seeker and the yogi.
We have a location in upstate NY on the east bank of Cayuga Lake that is a perfect setting for a small group ( four to eight participants) retreat/intensive.
Beautiful accommodations with yoga/fitness room right on the lake.
You design your own retreat.
There is nothing more effective than a few days to apply focused concentration.
If you are a group you can come for a few days of rest and relaxation with yoga, meditation, good food, golf, finger lakes wine tours, gorge hikes.
4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, wrap around deck, fitness/yoga room, huge deck, paddle boards, access to boat rides……..and a lot more.
Set your own itinerary.

Let’s Do This.
Exploring, experiencing, feeling, and–to the best of my ability–acting strictly and only on my individual intuition, I became impelled to write this book.
Ok…So it is not just how I feel now.
It is exploring and experiencing.
In a previous post I introduced three general areas of training:
- Imparting KNOWLEDGE.
- Developing SKILLS.
- Introducing and Enhancing The Optimal Cognitive Context with which to confront, explore, understand, engage with, the job at hand. ATTITUDE.
The Eightfold Path is a Buddhist “map.”
Right Understanding or Right View is the 8th “fold.”
Notice it is on the top; “The Crown.”
One of the many wonderful human beings that I’ve known who has affected other human beings in a markedly inspiring degree was e.e. cummings, the poet.
He wrote a piece called “A Poet’s Advice,” which I feel elucidates why “little I,” fifty-three years ago at age thirty-two, jettisoned all that I had ever been taught to believe and proceeded thereafter to reason and act only on the basis of direct personal experience. Cummings’ poem also explains why, acting entirely on my own initiative, I sought to discover what, if anything, can be effectively accomplished by a penniless, unknown individual–operating only on behalf of all humanity–in attempting to produce sustainingly favorable physical and metaphysical advancement of the integrity of all human life on our planet, which omnihuman advantaging task, attemptable by the individual, is inherently impossible of accomplishment by any nation, private enterprise, religion, or other multi-peopled, bias-fostering combination thereof.
We all see things differently. Seeing is sensing. Hearing is sensing. Touching is sensing. Smelling is sensing. What each of us happens to sense is different. And our different senses are differently effective under ever-differing circumstances. Our individual brains coordinatingly integrate all the ever-different sensings of our different faculties. The integrated product of our multifold individual sensings produces awareness. Only through our sensings are we aware of the complementary “otherness.”
“Know Thyself.” all wise persons have said.
We are each convinced of our own individuality, uniqueness and importance.
But do we really Know our selves; our essence.
The Buddha determined that a human being is a composite of five processes, four mental and one physical…….
