Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Again, most interesting thread.

Peace and Love,

After reading your praises of Dyer's book for weeks now, dear Karen, I finally bought my own copy of it yesterday. It "feels" solid and God knows, I'm eager to change my thoughts, change my life! Will keep you posted. (love your blog, btw. Keep writing!!!)

Thanks, friends. Excellent thread.

I posted here several days ago about TTT, Thought Think Themselves; they have a way of manifesting on many levels. Greg Braden and so many others have stated it, but it seems we don't put much credence to the words until we experience it firsthand.

This morning is one example.
I recently moved back to the Seattle area from San Diego to live with my sister and help with my 97 year old mom.

Something happened here
in the kitchen during the morning rush to work, Mom, says, "My hearing is getting worse every day, I'm sorry for being such a trouble." I say, "Mom, you've given us so much...it's time we give something back to you. We love you."

A few minutes goes by Lynn, my sister is busy getting ready for work, comes up to me, gives me a crushing hug and is crying, and in tears says, "I'm so glad you're hear, it's been hard for me to say those things to Mom, she can be so hard on me. I really appreciate you being here."

My Mom, God love her, can be blunt especially to my sister and it does hurt Lynn. My point in all this being that I was so taken emotionally I could not speak and only returned her hug with equal vigor, lest I also break down in tears.

It's this vulnerability, these feelings that we so often deny ourselves, that keep us from experiencing our essence, our light within.
My little lesson in this is for me to try to be more vulnerable and open in expressing my feelings. I guess I can endure some tears in order to reveal my being human, spiritual and compassionate.


I absolutely love the rawness of moments like this, and you captured its essence wonderfully, Vaughn. What a priceless gift that one spontaneous act of loving kindness was for all three of you. Ahhhh - heaven on earth!

I had goosebumps reading about the moment with your mom. To emphasize, goosebumps are huge and infrequent for me so just know all your moment gave me.

As all have said, this Oneness, this vulnerability is easy to forget and hard to be yet I know an open heart begets an open heart. Seems it's a way to start.

Thank you, again, Vaughn, for that incredible moment with you and yours.

Peace and Love,
