"Are people no better than sheep or cattle, that they must live always in view of one another in order to feel a sense of safety?"


"Do not think you will necessarily be aware of your own enlightenment."

Freudian Slip

"The whole human race spends too much emotion on itself. The happiest and freest person is the scientist investigating nature or the artist admiring it, the person who is interested in things that are not human."


"The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me."


"Our life can be seen as a crossing of a river. The goal of our life's effort is to reach the other shore, Nirvana. 'Prajna paramita,' the true wisdom of life, is that in each step of the way, the other shore is actually reached. To reach the other shore with each step of the crossing is the way of true living."


"Let me seek, then, the gift of silence, and poverty, and solitude, where everything I touch is turned into prayer: where the sky is my prayer, the birds are my prayer, the wind in the trees is my prayer, for God is all in all."

charla hermann

"BE ALERT, pay attention to what is going on in the world, ABOVE, BELOW AND WITHIN. Watch the Stars and see what is happening in the skies and within the wind. Watch the core of the earth and the shadows of your fears and be mindful to seek balance. Look within your heart and soul and decide what is really important right now. Hold the love, make good memories and cherish that best of the past. Be willing to carry it forward. KNOW THE ALTAR OF THE EAGLE TO RISE ABOVE THE SITUATION AND LOOK DOWN INTO THE WORLD FOR THE RIGHT SOLUTION.

BE COURAGEOUS, and be willing to step outside the box. Be willing to gather what is important and move on, if need be. Know that you may loose loved ones or financial security. You might be forced to let go of all kinds of things. (As someone in Japan today what is the most important thing they take from their homes. They won’t be able to go back and get things covered with radiation. What they take is what they get to start over again.) Imagine how hard it is for a junkie to get a fix in a city that is shut down. Best to deal with addictions before we get to that place. I know I can’t carry enough chocolate to get from one home to the other right now. (HAVE HUMOR, WE WILL NEED IT!) KNOW THE ALTAR OF THE BUFFALO AND BE STRONG AND ABLE TO MAKE HOME WHERE EVER YOU GO.

BE ABLE TO ENDURE, the possibility of going without food for a few days, or rations of food that isn’t on our special food group. Be willing to go without our suitcase full of medications or supplements. Be willing to endure sleeping in a place without that special mattress, or lots of space to hold all of the stuff you no loner need. Wear comfortable shoes, have good backpacks and dry foods. Carry toilet paper. Be willing to endure. KNOW THE ALTARS OF FUNERAL, GRIEVING AND TRANSFORMATION. KNOW THE POWER OF THE SACRED FIRES. KNOW HOW TO DANCE WITH COYOTES AND RISE LIKE A PHOENIX INTO THE WINDS OF CHANGE.

SHOW WISDOM, There is no room for EGO in this dance. We must all stay connected to soul. We must all come to know how to trust instincts beyond fear. We need to trust that we have the tools and the skills to go with the flow. One must have a very clear mind to tap into the serious wisdom of these times. Don’t try to work it through a fog. Be clear, be mindful, show compassion and be flex-abled. There is wisdom in all experience of the past. Know which thing to RE-member when it is most needed. Chances are it is more important to know how to build a fire and gather food, than to hang on to that lost prom date from High school. Just guessing!

Another Henry....

“Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.”

J Dean

“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.”


"Your mind will take on the character of your most frequent thoughts: souls are dyed by thoughts."


“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

"Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old."

"I wished to dive into some deep stream
of thoughtful and devoted life, which
meandered through retired and fertile
meadows far from town. I
lurk in crystalline thought like the
trout under verdurous banks, where stray
mankind should only see my bubble come
to the surface. I wished to live, ah! As
far away as I can think."
