Our Garden of Consciousness

Perhaps you’ve heard this poem, Our mind is the garden Our thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers Or you can grow weeds.   As my wife, Nancy, and I were admiring the vegetable garden at our home, she commented on how well the garden is doing and credited her earlier effort in the […]

The Everything and the Nothing

As I was lying in the sun today I was thinking of how uncomprehensible Spirit seems to be and how infantile my understanding.
