Walking about the Skywalk one is sure to encounter this rather odd large black object. It is hollow and open at one end. The inside dimensions have a measure of 1 x 4 x 9. Continue reading
Recently a friend asked the following: “what do you think is the singular most important exercise/practice of all those you’ve worked with over the years?”
The answer to this not a simple one. Well, maybe it is simple, but definitely not easy to explain. But, I’ll give it a go.
First I will answer in the broad sense.
The single most important practice for me has been “The Way of Service.” So that is the simple part. But what exactly is “The Way of Service” — that is the not so easy to explain part. Continue reading
What was the Computer Rescue Squad? And, if we were starting today what would it be like?
Computer Rescue Squad started in the very early 1980′s. Personal computers were brand new. The idea of having a computer and using it for business was a new concept. All of a sudden you had to have a computer. But, no one knew how to use them.
So the Computer Rescue Squad was formed with the business model of solving people’s computer problems. Rescuing them from the glorious pitfalls and conundrums the new technology has introduced. This included printer setup, writing device drivers to connect peripherals, training, retrieval of deleted data, creation of custom programs and hardware repair. Continue reading
Recently the following questions asked through facebook:
- Is the point ultimately to make a living from one of these entrepreneurship adventures?
- How many people have actually done this?
- Why did you choose to go into website building instead of making a living from one of the adventures.?
I’ll do what I can to give my perspective on these questions. And, fyi, I’m answering the questions here because of a suspicion that others may have some or all of the same questions. Continue reading
Every like, share, review and/or post comes with a price — incrementally this price is not large; but, collectively significant.
What is the price? Exposure of yourself. Exposure in ways that we don’t understand and can’t anticipate. Exposure to the collective maws (see below) of corporate titans that use our history and our lives as a commodity to be sold down the stream to those who would convert us into media dominated zombies — i.e. good consumers.
If I am going to pay this price, I want to do it on behalf of something that matters to me. For me, I do it as part of the way of service.
Def: maw noun the jaws or throat of a voracious animal.
This means that when you open a chest, or touch an object, or accomplish a specific goal you can observe and hopefully notice the effect that this has on the attributes in the HUD. This allows you to create a secondary overlay map of the Orb.

Science Fiction Radio Theater Workshop (SFRTW). One of the primary aims for this workshop is as tool for our upgrade in consciousness. From here we look at our tool belt and the skills needed. Attention is a pillar in the foundation of our efforts. The Power of Attention, T0TM 042 from 1986, online at http://www.talkofthemonth.com/totm/totm042.html is the source of the focus today. On this talkofthemonth.com page is a brief summary of the entire talk. Our focus is an excerpt. Continue reading
In spite of the plaintiff cries of school children, there are times in life when you will use that stuff you learn in school — or at least should use it.
Case in point. What if a certain organization is selling you 2000 ad views for $800 a month. Now 800 new customers for less than $1000 sounds great. Or does it? Continue reading
Let’s get right to the punch line. If you truly want to succeed at something then it is necessary to take on the attitude: “Failure is not an option.”
If a deadline can be pushed, then it will be pushed.
If there is wiggle room, then wiggle is likely.
If failure is an option, then failure is on the table as a possibility for consideration.
The moment failure is not an option then you are caught in the grip of needing to succeed at all costs. Continue reading
When the doors of perception appear to open they reveal a vision. The harder we work to open the doors, the more invested we are in this vision being cool and groovy and having some form of specific significance.
It can happen that this vision crystallizes forming a stained glass barrier preventing actual penetration past the vision. Our expectations become a guardian blocking our way into whatever it is that we could see if only we could get past our own expectations.
Two things can help prevent this:
1) Keep your teacup empty or at least empty-ish.
2) Remember what the Black Lectroids from Planet 10 have to say on the topic: “No big deal.”
