Mastering Self – My Notes

While the audio version of this is airing in podcast on K WAVe 6 Radio, here are my notes for that podcast:

  1. Living in a time when hedonism and narcissism is rampant;
  2. Degrees, diplomas, certificates… anything that speaks of our importance/differences, things that separate, not unite – the documentary Kumaré;Steve+Allen+0001
  3. An inability, or lack of desire to see what is in plain sight, or hidden [though it’s easy to see] – mass media, alternative media – our own ability to discern;
  4. Yielding to popular thoughts and ideas – not learning [because we’re too busy conforming];
  5. Purchasing [material goods] without regard to [the cost on the ecology in] manufacturing;
  6. Spiritual leaders ignored – some should be – the ancient [spiritual leaders that were true leaders for the good of all] were ignored;
  7. Are you a leader, follower, or an individual?
  8. Community vs. Individuality.  Can you be an individual in a/your community?
  9. Can you be “saved” or “ascend” as a community, or only as an individual?

The sentences with square brackets “[ ]” have been added so you can have a better idea of my thoughts.

I hope the nine lines above help you in your quest to Master Yourself.

All the best!

Two Pages

The following was written for the "K WAVe 6 Radio" podcast on

Recently, I was given a book.  It is an old book and its name is all but worn away.

The first several hundred pages are written on old and worn parchment, but as I scan the pages, I notice the pages change in quality and in age.

Now that I’ve scanned and have a “feel” for this book of mysteries, I now open the book to two random pages.  The print is surprisingly small, but in some unknown manner, each line I read seems to enlarge as if by some unseen magnifying glass.  Reading just one page seems to take forever.

After reading a mere few pages and noticing the dramatic changes in the heavens, I began to notice the pattern of the mysterious book which is written without demarcation.

The pattern, now clear to me is that each page starts a new day in history.  The division  between the two pages is mid-day, but not as man measures time.  At the end of the second page is the close of each day.

Another mystery of the book unfolded before me.  I was allowed to see and read a mere pittance of a planets history, two pages – a day at a time.OldBook-for Blog - Two Pages

The book, while larger than any text-book, and compressed with what seems to be an insurmountable amount of information tells of the history of a planet from its conception, to its current moment.  The book is a summary of each event that produced significant change in its history.

This book, like any book has a beginning and a middle, but like any story of life, it is incomplete – the end cannot be written while the subject continues to unfold…

… just as each of us unfold each day, two pages at a time.
