What Is Your Purpose?

By meestereric / August 10, 2020 /

What is your purpose on the planet? “No thing is what it appears to be. Then who are you? You have to find for yourself. Is there really a you? Are you really an individual? Are you separate from a tree, an animal, the world, the universe? Is there any separation? Find out. Do you…

On Beyond “The Virus”

By meestereric / July 21, 2020 /

I recently had a brief exchange with a friend via text, while I was busy working in my garden. I realize I didn’t express myself clearly at the time about “the virus.” So this is an attempt to make that more clear, and “set the record straight” as they say (though it will never be…

No Body No Problem

By meestereric / October 15, 2019 /

Neither scenario or worldview that society hands us, make any sense: neither the religious model nor the scientific one: 1. That a loving benevolent God out there or in another dimension or behind things, created us and the universe out of nothing, only so that we could suffer, fight for survival and die, and create…

This Side of Paradise and the Unexamined Self

By meestereric / July 24, 2019 /

Last night I watched an old Star Trek original series episode that had come to mind: “This Side of Paradise“. The story in it always intrigued me: artificial happiness and the cult-like dramatic conflict when the agricultural lifestyle colonists encounter the Star Trek crew, as well as the entertainment value of what happens with the…

On Beyond Back-To-Nature Philosophies

By meestereric / July 16, 2019 /

Listening to a popular “animal communicator”, I realized the core issue with what she was saying. While I appreciate what they do with specific animals and species, and it touches my heart deeply (I love animals, and plants, and minerals…), there is an assumptions and an attitude about humans and the planet and Life and…

These musings are in response to a friend, a spiritual teacher and former physicist & mathematician, who expressed an opinion about the inventor Nikola Tesla.

By meestereric / February 28, 2019 /

Most of us have been asked at some point in our lives if we believe in God. We also at some point may have been put in a category of either an atheist, an agnostic, or a theist (in common culture more likely something like a “believer”). The definitions of these terms are (dictionary and…

On Beyond Life and Career Advice (for Teens and Adults)

By meestereric / January 3, 2019 /

Reflecting on Life and Career Advice (for teens or adults): Last night I watched some old videos of a famous comic, brilliant, creative, very “successful”, but who eventually committed suicide. And so many of the celebrities have been in and out of drug rehab, or commit suicide, or become recluses, or go through strings of…
