Commandments for a New Age

If it feels wrong, don't do it.

Say exactly what you mean.

Don't be a people pleaser.

Trust your instincts.

Never speak bad about yourself.

Never give up on your dreams.

Don't be afraid to say "no".

Don't be afraid to say "yes".

Be kind to yourself.

Let go of what you can't control.

Stay away from drama and negativity.

Gospel for a New Age

"The idea that God turned stone-silent and stopped talking to the 
human race a long time ago is false.

The idea that God is angry with the human race and 
kicked it out of Paradise is false.
The idea that God has set Himself up as judge and jury and will be 
deciding which members of the human race go to heaven or hell is false.

God loves every human being who ever lived, lives now, or ever will live.

God's desire is for every soul to return to God, and God cannot fail in 
having this desire fulfilled.

God is separate from nothing, and nothing is separate from God.

There is nothing that God needs, because God is everything there is.

There is nothing outside God.

This is the good news. Everything else is an illusion."

Alcuin Bramerton

Gonna Cash in my Mind

I am increasingly becoming a monastic in my own mind, increasingly preferring to reconnect with the past and dream of the future while I disengage psychologically from the present. Call me a Stoic dropout. I'm not necessarily a conservative fuddy-duddy or a liberal freak, and certainly not a reactionary, a racist, a xenophobe, or a homophobe, and I don't like it when anyone attempts to label me as any of those. I am simply exhausted by the frenzied way the world has become. The music I like, the movies I enjoy, and the sports I follow or practice are not current fare. Instead, I'm mentally and physically moving back to where there are more woods than people, where I can live in the peace of the past or dream of the future, and step away from the here and now.
 I'm gonna cash in my hand
And pick up on a piece of land
And build myself a cabin back in the woods
Lord, it's there I'm gonna stay
Until there comes a day
When this old world starts to changing for the good
