Why?

buddha.jpg

I’ve been a blogger for just over two years, complaining and pontificating at Spontaneous Arising. Most of the material there has been socio-political in nature, with the occasional spiritual content thrown in to relax my conscience.

The following question has arisen of late: “If everything sucks, if everything is a conspiracy — if everyone is treating everyone else horribly, taking advantage of their fellow human beings without a thought — what would you propose to do about it?”

Do I have a better idea?

How would I fix things?

I do have an idea or two, and they are related to the process of turning within, following some sort of spiritual practice, and/or adopting a different way of relating to the world — a way based on the inner, as opposed to addressing everything “out there.”

So, I’m starting up this blog to focus solely on The Solution, and I’m leaving the ranting to my other blog.

There are further possibilities for this blog that I’m not yet prepared to talk about, at least not here — though you’ll be among the first to know. For the time being, I’ll be working on the template here, adding links and figuring out the wonderful features that WordPress offers, as opposed to Blogger where I’ve been for the past couple years.

Stay tuned!

    Me too, Hawk Sr.

    It’ll take some time to build up readership, but I’m mostly interested in developing an approach to countering all the bad news out there — and doing so through various inner/spiritual modalities.

    In other words, I can post on spiritual stuff to my heart’s content here, and I won’t make all the political junkies at Spontaneous Arising uncomfortable.

    A brave soul you are to venture into WordPress. I’ve toyed with the idea for a while and Youngfox has a site in the works.

    So far so good, I say; and I’m very much looking forward to reading your ideas and some interesting comments.

    (I am currently having some issues viewing all the photos though. after getting to the ‘post comment’ portion, things seem fine – previously an ‘access denied’ msg came up – sorry to ramble on this point but thought you’d want to know if it were a bug you were working on)

    I think I’ve resolved the image issue here, Amelopsis. Sorry for the viewing problem — it took some serious investigation to figure out how to upload images here. I was using an off-site host (actually I tried two — Webshots and Eggdisk), and that’s where the no-access message originated. You should be able to view images as with any other website now….
