Let’s get to the point…

Our Lives Are Shaped by the Quality of Our Attention.

There are three realms of action:

and communion with the sacred

To integrate our lives we must attend to all three.

This site is a trace of my efforts over time and a call for those who would care to connect in ways that may help us find a way forward.

As an introduction to my project I suggest you begin by reading these posts:

Queequeg’s Coffin

Attending Quality

Abandoning Persuasion

Pointing Out Futility

Confusion is part of the message

A Question of Purpose

More and more… it’s fragments…

Communion with the Sacred

Drawing Desire

Looking Back at Looking Back

Too Much, too little…

The Question of Bad Faith

The Edifice of Thought

How do we change?

Taken in order they present an outline of my investigations and point towards possibilities we may move towards. Don’t confuse the wandering nature of these essays for imprecision. Our reality can only be glimpsed. Reductive strategies corrode our capacities to move past destructive behaviors and take part in Life.

How do we navigate uncertainty?

Questions are at the heart of what I do.

The following presentation by my friend and colleague Jeppe Dyrendom Graugaard is a straightforward introduction into our shared concerns and gives a good introduction to the context of my work.

  1. Good to be in touch again, Antonio! Will come back and work through the posts. Interesting that JMG is sallying forth into ecospirituality. I should say ecoreligion, lest I annoy him. :-)


  2. I heard Krishnamurti talk sometime in the 80s. I’m not sure in David Bohm was at the conferecne in Brockwood Park then but I have his The Ending of Time -conversations – thirteen dialogues.
