How to Access the Timeless Dimension (and Why We Want To)

The first days of summer are easily the best days of the year for me. Extreme heat and sunshine guarantee a shift of pace and attitude that remind me of my childhood. One can fairly argue that a summer afternoon in the Deep South is the equivalent of 100 years.  Time stands still. I now understand what that time-standing-still feeling is about. The feeling that time has slowed or stopped is linked with the timeless dimension of Zero State. The name of the state says it all: in the state of nothingness, Zero, there is no time. This is the…

Donuts, Purpose and Wormholes

I predict (mark it on your calendar) that in five years there will be Transcendence Studios conveniently located next to every Dollar Store in every strip mall  in America.  Here’s why: transcendence is the spiritual cheat we’ve all been given to access a place we didn’t even know we wanted or existed.

It feels like unrest or dread combined with feelings of “how am I going to get through the summer?” Know this:  you’re not alone. I’ve had a disproportionate number of calls this week. Hang in there!! Here’s the reason we get summertime anxiety. If you look to the processes of the earth, this is the time  of year when plants are in full plant mode—blooming and making food that will be harvested in the fall to help…
