The Religion of the Future

THE RELIGION OF THE FUTURE The religion of the future must be a religion for all humankind. A religion of no distinctions, men or women, black or white or brown, heterosexual or homosexual, young or old, of whatever ethnicity, background, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, the entire gamut of human beings. A religion that […]

The Multiverse & The Human Heart

The Multiverse is the term being thrown around these days by physicists and astrophysicists and philosophers and what have you – an answer to where the universe we live in has originated – a gigantic hub or spawner of universes like our own, infinite in number, which we cannot observe even with powerful telescopes because […]

Something That Never Changes/Life & Death In America

Life and Death are the great mysteries. Why do trees lose their leaves?  Why does the day wane?  Why do we move inexorably from birth to death? Even the great suns, the stars vast in breadth of light-years, cannot escape their own demise. Where does it come from, and why? Some would not even question.  […]

Hope. And A New Dream.

With the sudden ascendancy of Donald Trump and his allies to power, a shroud of darkness and uncertainty has descended upon many citizens of America. People of all stripes would like to believe something good might emerge out of this election, but their reservoirs of hope have dwindled mightily.  We are in a new era […]

The Coming Revolution

There is a revolution coming. Make no mistake about it, it is in the air. The old forms are dissolving, soon we will not recognize the old world that we have carried around with us all these eons.

The Mission San Rafael Arcangel – one of the string of Spanish missions in California – located in downtown San Rafael, about twenty miles north of San Francisco. The Mission was part of an effort by the government of Spain to stake claims on the western coast of the Americas, and to bring the Catholic […]

Dallas, Trump, and The Great Gatsby

Naked violence in Dallas. The crescendo of killing is almost too much to bear.  The psyche of the nation stands violated. Who are we as a people?  Who are we as a nation? Our politics, too, bears witness to the emergence of violence and divisions – most notably in the person of Donald Trump, the […]

Traveling to a New America – Hayes Valley, San Francisco

I’m in Hayes Valley, San Francisco today, a trendy neighborhood of boutiques, art galleries, top-notch restaurants and nightspots in the heart of the city. The neighborhood has a nice community feel. San Francisco is a city of youth; and as I continue to talk to young people, and sometimes get into the subject of religion, […]

Traveling to a New America – Life & Death & Happiness in Walnut Creek, Ca.

Walnut Creek, California. A prosperous, upscale community where you would expect to find at least the average amount of that illusive quality called happiness. What is happiness anyway?  Ask a thousand people, and you might get a thousand different answers. Money in the bank.  A good job.  A wonderful girl friend or boy friend, or […]
