Embedded from that site below is the live video stream (requires flash) of an Bald Eagles Nest. I view regularly over the course of a day to see the two adult Bald Eagles and three chicks. I think its pretty remarkable.

Fearing zero, with dizziness

its just control

Pennsylvania Echoes

Meditation is a journey. A path Inward, where one discovers more about the inner landscapes.
Occasionally zazen is stormy, my body and thoughts feel restless. Sometimes its just a quiet sit.
Often though, (especially if I am meditating outdoors) I reach a consciousness where there are no thoughts, no sense of time, the differentiation between smell, sight and sound, seems to lessen and lessen…

And suddenly I will quick ping of fear. The total loss of self consciousness is terrifying. Just for a couple seconds.
Through the journey of my inner landscape, I learn that I do not like the loss of control. That sensations of the outside world come in during meditation, and i fear it. I fear sensing the landscape without without my thinking- minds attempt to interpret and label what I sense.
Time: “shit! how long have I been sitting here!”

Intersubjectivity and Inerpersonal Bright Side” was origionally posted: dec 5, 2011.

Look upon other people and see that we are all  humans.  We  roughly appear to have the same forms and physics, the same sets of uniquely  human behaviors ( such as use of language). Upon deeper inspection, by biologists  who study DNA, There are traits and characteristics that are universally Homo Sapien or  human.
Meet and talk with other people and discover that people have cognitive differences of each person; Travel and note the cultural  differences of people.
If  you are one who has used medications and therapies for serious health problems, you will quickly learn the unwritten rule : “what works for one may not work for another, everyone is different“. One can infer each Homo Sapien is  biologically different from the next, Same  goes for their sum total of subjective  experiences. The…

Submissions in the Post Modern Life

( poem also @
cafedogs canteen)

Pennsylvania Echoes

I have grown up in the modern world. An I have chosen to participate in it. I have a car, a computer a Television. I live in a friendly, some times violent community. But as i enjoy the comforts of life, i am plagued by the anxieties and pains of the fast paced world.

Like most people, from time to time, I looked at our human history and evolution, and feel the desire to make peace with my elements. We will all die one day, our modern existence will end. We will all physically return to the dust, spirit, or energy that we are constructed of.
I see meditation is key component to find peace my body. It helps to relieve some unpleasant symptoms, that are rooted deep with in me the deep fear of death, and the intense will to live..

the hardest part of submission
