Streamer FemYoga To Review Dragonfly

My dear friend Ruby Calypso arranged for popular Persciope, YouTube, and Twitch streamer FemYoga to read and review Dragonfly on her channel. She announced the review Thursday on her live stream and will be broadcasting excerpts soon. Haven’t bought Dragonfly for yourself yet? Enjoyed it and want to grab a copy for a friend? Head…

Something needs to be done about this!

I’m sure you’ve heard and said that many times. Here’s a secret: No.. actually, it doesn’t. By saying others need to do something to address a fear or concern of mine, I am, interestingly enough, giving up control. I’ve gained tremendous insight about myself by examining my mindset when I make this statement. By asking:…

Authentic Living

One of my new years resolutions in 2018 is to live an authentic life. The immediate question that comes to mind is – Robert, were you not living authentically? Yes and no. For sure, I try to be a good person. I think most of the time I succeed in that endeavor. I do not…

The Little House of Cultural Expansion

I watched an episode of Little House on the Prairie named Injun Kid last night and was struck by a pivotal moment of cultural expansion. It was subtle, but well played, and analyzing it yields a fascinating look into human psychology and spirituality. In the episode, a half-Native American boy and his mother arrive in Walnut…

Faith and Responsibility

The universe rewards faith and responsibility in equal measure. No matter your belief system, you probably would agree that if you have faith, at least in your own abilities, you are more likely to succeed. This has been shown time in time again both in studies and in most people’s personal lives. Religious and spiritual…

The World is Ending Saturday

I don’t usually see messages of Armageddon in our local media, but this one caught my eye: World Will End Saturday, According to the Internet. If my local media is carrying the story, why it must be serious business. Rather than immediately laugh at this, I thought I’d actually watch the video. I gave it…

September Fog and Winter Snow

There’s a saying that there will be a snow in winter for each foggy morning in September. This year I’m finally going to put this to the test. My wife told me about this folk axiom years ago. We’d remember it when we saw a foggy September morning, then promptly forget it the next day….

Judgement (or How to Be Human)

It is our task in this life to judge. It is what we are built to do. To judge, discern, and examine self, and this world we chose to be in, is our most noble task. One of the greatest misconceptions about the spiritual journey is that we live in judgement. This notion of a…

The Patterns of Life

The universe has an uncanny and universal pattern of repeated themes at all levels of its existence. At the largest level the patterns of galaxies resemble living tissue under a microscope: The roads, cities, rivers, and suburbs have a strikingly similar pattern: From our view of the night sky, the lines between stars (the constellations)…

Channeling the Creative Spirit

I consider myself a decent writer. I can usually express myself in a coherent and even sometimes entertaining fashion, and dive deep into analytics when the situation demands. And yet after all of these years of writing and pouring nearly half a million words onto paper in my books, I still cannot tell you precisely how I…
