Buddha Privelige

I think about the life of the Buddha a lot. I know, I should be thinking about the teachings of the Buddha – and I do , but the life of the Buddha is held up as a sort of moral way to live. Today, I am reflecting on...

It’s Difficult to Not Be Angry With the Wizard

Ramadan Mubarak & Ramadan Kareem & Random Musings

Resistance. Sometimes harder is actually easier.

I have to admit that I am tempted to feel disappointment at the early reception to the little book I recently produced. Feeding the Spirit. Out of a thousand followers on twitter, four hundred friends on facebook, and the hundreds of readers who come here every day, the reaction...

Game show tries to convert Athiests to Believers
