A Memory

I begin with a memory . . . I become acutely preoccupied with the thoughts in my mind    . . . What had been background chatter suddenly leaps into the foreground of my attention. My thoughts are constant, loud and random, telling stories . . . rehearsing what I will say to friends later, comparing this . . . to that, and on and on. I feel as if I am trapped on a carnival ride, spinning out of control. I also notice a sense of separation from the world, as if imprisoned inside a glass box. This is a seminal moment in my life: from this point on, I will become intensely and increasingly aware of non-stop mental turmoil.  And it is a desire for relief from this inner chaos that initiates my quest.

Hi everyone! I'm so glad you're here. I hope you move closer to what your spiritual truth is in this place we call earth from reading my journal. I've been investigating for over 30 years why we're here, in this moment, and have found countless ways to help others relax and enjoy the ride. Hope you'll join me!
