My Guru Has a Tail, Part 10: The Legacy

Any Guru who’s worthy of their exalted title leaves a legacy of wisdom behind when they pass over to the non-physical realm. My Guru, our cat Lucy, was no exception to this rule. As some of you know, the Guru passed into the non-physical realm in November of 2014. Since then, I have been both […]

My Guru Has a Tail, Part 9: The Miracle

A few days after I first wrote this post, the Guru (aka our kitty Lucy) died suddenly of undetected heart failure.

My Guru Has a Tail, Episode 1: The Fumigation

Who inspires you? Who makes you want to be a better person? Is it someone you know? Or someone you don’t? Someone who’s still alive? Or someone who’s passed over to the other side? In my case, my source of inspiration is someone who has now passed over to Kitty Heaven. Someone whose deep, prophetic […]

How I Survived the Spiritual Retreat from Hell

Have you ever been at a spiritual retreat that didn’t feel very spiritual? Perhaps the facilitator seemed more egoic than enlightened. Perhaps the other participants seemed incapable of deep, honest inquiry. Or maybe the whole event had an overly-materialistic vibe. Whatever it was, it left you feeling unsatisfied, incomplete. Of course, everything is spiritual. I’ve […]

How to Win the Spiritual Olympics

“I’m more spiritual than you are.” Has there ever been a more absurd statement in the history of the Universe? Sure, there are stranger things to say. Like, “My donkey is on backwards.” Or “What’s the square root of cake?” But surely, “I’m more spiritual than you are” is right up there in the bizarre-phrases […]
