Traveling with Joy

Melanie Lamaga with Sequoias by Jose Angel Sanchez Pacheco

 Boost Creativity and Productivity through Bliss Last week I wrote about the book Get High Now (without drugs) and, somewhat coincidentally, this week I find myself blissed out to an extent I haven’t felt in quite a while, and as a result, my creativity is humming. I know it’s probably foolish to analyze this. The […] Read more »

The Illumination by Kevin Brockmeier

The Illumination by Kevin Brockmeier Cover Art

The Illumination is a literary novel with only one fantastic element, but it’s a doozy: one day, inexplicably, the bodily pain of each and every human being on earth begins to manifest as a white light. Everything from a headache to leukemia shines out of the body like a beacon for all to see. The […] Read more »

The Sirens of Titan, by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

The Sirens of Titan book cover

An Alien Anthropologist Visits Planet Earth I’ve read quite a few of Vonnegut’s novels now, and I’ve decided he is, in fact, an alien observer of a strange and dangerous race: humans. Vonnegut’s stories show us our every shortcoming without rancor. Like a good anthropologist, he’s neither angry nor particularly compassionate. He doesn’t make excuses […] Read more »

Abundance is Already Yours. Quantum Physics teaches us that linear time is an illusion. Many on the cutting edge of science, as well as those in the areas of metaphysics and religion, say that everything that ever happened or will happen is still happening. Hugh Everett’s Many Worlds interpretation posits, in a nutshell, that anything […] Read more »

Attracting Abundance, Part 4

Be a Love Warrior. Another great way to attract abundance is to spread some love around, whether to the world, your community, your tribe, or the homeless guy on the corner. Not begrudgingly, because it’s your job, or your kid, or you’ve been programmed that such and such is the right thing to do. What’s […] Read more »

Attracting Abundance, Part 3

San Ignacio kids

Connect with Your Tribe It’s been a week since I started writing about attracting abundance. It started as emails to just a few friends, because I want to see them prosper in body and spirit. It was not on this blog, because I hadn’t started it yet. Then we decided to visualize and pray for […] Read more »

Attracting Abundance, Part 1

Ask, Listen, Visualize, Feel There is a book out there called The Law of Attraction that may or may not espouse similar ideas to those I’m presenting here. I don’t know because I haven’t read it. Normally, I am a big advocate of research, but there is a time for research and a time for […] Read more »
