Future Consciousness


I live in sight of the little mountain of Monticello, home of the world-historical genius, Thomas Jefferson.  Today the hills are green from all the rain, but the sun has heated the air to a hundred degrees -- harbinger of climate change?

I have just returned from an unusual meeting of scholars, entrepreneurs, and --  overused word -- visionaries. A meeting of like minds.

This meeting of folks from various professions and academic disciplines was called by Ed Kelly, a neuroscientist from the University of Virginia’s Division of Perceptual Studies. Joining the meeting from the West Coast was Michael Murphy, co-founder of Esalen, home of the human potential movement in America.  I was invited to join the group of about twenty souls who came from all parts of the world.

The aim of the meeting was extraordinary and some might say quixotic.  The big concern was nothing less than to plan a metaphysical revolution -- to convert the world to a new vision of reality.

How To Dialogue With Your Creative Unconscious


Some years ago I was suffering from a bout of gastritis (inflammation of stomach membranes ). For some reason I thought if I drank a lot of milk, I would get some relief.  At first I thought the milk might be helping, but if it was it was working very slowly.  Then one night I had a dream that lasted no more than a second.  In a flash I saw a cow before me that was tied up with rope. 

I woke up and immediately thought: the message here is obvious – stop drinking milk!  Later that day I consulted with students of mine who were nurses; they all agreed with my take on the dream.   Not a good idea to feed an inflamed gut with milk!  So I quit my self-appointed milk therapy, and in a very short time the gastritis faded away.
