We Are the Universe Knowing Itself in the Body of Mankind.[…]
[Editor’s notes: David sent this piece to NASA and was proud to learn that it was read to the families of the fallen astronauts…] As we know, today seven astronauts burned to death as the Space Shuttle Columbia burst into a ball of fire, horrifying onlookers, and spreading large pieces of molten debris across thousands of square miles.

In our Western culture, I do not believe that a true “mind/body” perception has yet arisen. Certainly it hasn’t in our healthcare model, where we seem to think that mind/body health means having a multi-clinic with practitioners who, in turn and separately, treat a patient’s mind, body, spirit, etc. […]
Star Trek and its various generations were a cultural archetype, expressing motifs of the collective human consciousness, teaching us about ourselves in the most imaginative ways. In the tradition of great classic literature, often its plot raised timeless moral, ethical, and even spiritual questions […]
A few hours ago a friend shocked me with the news Leonard Nimoy, Spock from “Star Trek,” died today. […]
I want to try to articulate something that happened two nights ago. I am not sure I understand it… All at once I began to tingle all over. Instantly, my mind went very still and I shut my eyes and went within [….]
The greatest distance is not from Earth to the farthest star. The longest distance is the journey from the mind to the heart. […]
The action of speaking from our heart integrates mind and heart..[…]
Many people “believe” in a spiritual world or in God. But believing is not the same as perceiving, and we do not only perceive with our six senses. When you live in a cave and never go outside, you may “believe” in the sun but you never feel its warmth on your skin. […]
Intuition, the silent knowing of the heart, is a way in which we may perceive the spiritual realm. Silence of mind invites intuition. When the “I” is quiet, then Silence “speaks.” […]
Consciousness is in us and in the Universe. It is everywhere.
Consciousness has created us and is becoming aware of Itself within our material bodies. We are the eyes, ears, fingertips of the Cosmos coming to know itself in the body of mankind. […]
Love is not ours to “give” or to “receive.” Like the wind in the trees, Love moves through us and shakes us to our roots.
Our heart is or can be the open window for Love. […]
We do not stop at our skin. Our life energy pulses in our cells, moves outward to our skin in waves, and beyond, filling space and forming the medium of our intimate connections.
When we kiss someone we love, we actually “kiss” before our lips touch! […]
Most religions believe man is meant to suffer because of “original sin” or “bad karma” from “past incarnations.” Suffering is believed to be part of the “human condition” which is “sinful,” “imperfect,” or “unenlightened.” Religion generally believes man must “repent,” “do penance,” to receive “God’s forgiveness,” […]
We all carry pain from our past. Repressed pain surfaces in situations that trigger it, in dreams, our relationships, and in therapy. Very often we spend our lives re-living our painful patterns of behaviour and emotion over and over….
Sometimes past pain surfaces for a very different purpose […]
At some point one realizes “I am on a journey.” One’s dreams may give one this sense. Or one has identified an archetype in one’s dreams and senses it is “pointing the way.” […]
I am the Journey, which is essentially marrying mind with heart: Intellect with emotion, reason with intuition, control with creativity, strength with gentleness, masculine with feminine…in a “concert” of dynamic harmony within oneself. […]
Finding your archetypes helps you become conscious that you are on your Journey and then realize that you are your Journey. Some practical ways to find your archetypes include: Jungian psychotherapy, art therapy, meditation in which you invite Silence to speak, doing art or writing poetry, writing down your dreams […]
One need not find one’s archetypes in order to become whole. All one needs to do is become present.[…]
Our faces are the same–are starlight–until we say the word “I” and “I am”–whereupon our light coalesces, condenses, covers itself with the skin of our individuality, and therein our journey here, in this solid realm, begins..[…]
David developed a manual spinal manipulation technique he called Light-Touch Mobilization Technique (LTMT). As I understood his description, it was basically a very light touching of a mis-aligned vertebra, which seemed to communicate to the body that it should relax any unnatural tension and allow the vertebra to move to a more natural, healthful alignment.
