*What does it mean the be a writer? Today I interviewed friend, and fellow blogger, +Alan Howard. Alan has been writing online since 1998. I’ll do the math for you, that’s 17 years of writing and publishing online. I can’t even imagine how many words that might encompass, but it’s a hell of a lot.

Very good.  Nice to see that spirituality does not have to contain the "religion" label.  Religion and established classical religions have done so much harm and alienated so many people that it is time to move away from those antiquated labels and consider a personal spirituality be be what it is...a normal lifestyle.

New Blog Post: The near-spiritual union of mind and body while getting inked and The Dharma Sleeve Project (TDSP)...
You are fully present in each passing moment; acutely aware of the painful sensations, vibrations, scratching and burning that often accompanies the process. On the surface (no pun intended), it seems ludicrous to deliberately mark up one's body with permanent ink that will, over time, ...

Where do you stand on vegetarianism? I transitioned to a plant-based nutritional plan some time ago. This article offers some ecological perspectives on adopting a vegetarian lifestyle.

New Post on the blog today: 8 Ways Not to Think About Meditation
In Zen, meditation is about sitting, standing, or walking in total awareness. Steve Hagen, Lead teacher at the Dharma Field Zen Center in Minneapolis, MN and author of the best book on meditation I've ever read, Meditation Now or Never, puts it this way: “Meditation, and it's Japanese ...

Today's blog post contains a big dose of reality. 
As a Buddhist, I'm a nonconformist. I don't go in for the robes and rituals, elaborate ceremonies, or festivals having to to do with Buddhist traditions. I'm dedicated to a secular Buddhist practice that's directed at helping others eliminate suffering from their lives, and is well described by ...
