Meditation to Heal Anxiety

We live two lives: we live life in our thoughts and we live life as our experience of the present moment. Freedom comes as our life in thoughts diminishes and our experience of the present moment predominates.


Your Micale Magnet

Have you ever wondered Who Am I? You are stardust that somehow came alive, and whatever made that happen remains a mystery.


Love and light

We are here today because our ancestors learned that survival depended on every person doing the right thing and having each other’s back.

Practice Meditation and find your inner peace

We are living in the dawn of a new beginning. Traditional religious and spiritual ways are in decline and new ways are replacing them. 

This is happening because people want inner peace, not just promises of inner peace. People want to experience what is sacred directly, not through the words of middlemen.

People want lives filled with love and fellowship, not lives filled with stress and separation.People want communities that truly have their back, not communities that let the powerful prey on them.

This Astonishing Mystery Called Life

We are stardust that somehow came alive and no one knows how or why that happened – no one knows what created life. Yet here we are – alive on a tiny speck of dirt and water floating through endless space. 

For most people including us, this mystery called life is most sacred, and it fills us with awe and wonder. This site is about how to relax into this mystery and be present in it every moment.

This site is about being more aware of what’s obvious, not about finding something that’s hidden or lost. It’s about connecting with what’s sacred through your experiences, not through beliefs or faith. Our experience is that life itself is already so sacred that reverence is enough – that faith and beliefs need not even figure in unless you want them to.

In short, this site is about how to replace words and thoughts about life with your direct experiences of life, and how to then evaluate and trust your experiences. It is about connecting directly with sacredness through increasing inner peace, love, fellowship, and goodness in your life.


Long ago our ancestors created religions and spiritualities that promised inner peace, love, fellowship, goodness, and connection with what’s most sacred. Today most people still want those promises fulfilled but many now distrust traditional religions and spiritualities because those often divide society and separate people from one another.

The view on this web site is that traditional religions and spiritualities do provide ways to fulfill those promises, and some of those ways are described on this site along with new ways of fulfilling those promises developed by medicine and science in recent years. 


However our view is also that traditional religions and spiritualities are based on a flawed principle that undermines the fulfillment of those promises, that divides society, and that separates people from one another:


Traditional religions and a great many spiritual teachings today are based on the flawed principle that someone else knows better than you what’s best for you. They require you to accept that they alone know how to connect you with what’s sacred and provide you with inner peace, love, fellowship and goodness.


By accepting that requirement you thereby give them your power and your authority, which disempowers you and empowers them. They can then tell you what’s best for you because you gave them the power and authority to do so.


We are here today because our ancestors learned that survival depended on every person doing the right thing and having each other’s back. Today our survival still depends on that, as do our inner peace and sense of well-being.

If you want your heart to be more open, if you want to feel more connected to others, get together with friends and sing. On this page are some songs we like to sing to celebrate being alive, and to express our gratitude, our wonder and our joy.

Our mind wants our beliefs to be certain and true, which separates us from others, while our heart wants our beliefs to bring us closer to others and increase love. And so we are forced to choose between love and the certainty of our beliefs. Learn how to resolve this conflict.
