    Hi Peter,
    Re: The quote, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience”
    I have no idea who Wayne Dyer is or was, but this quote is generally attributed to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881 – 1955). Still, regardless of who came up with it, I think it is pretty profound.

    On the matter of humans and their experiences, it seems to me some exciting times lie ahead for all of us. Are you familiar with John Smallman, Mike Quinsey, Sheldan Nidle? Interesting stuff.

      In a recent podcast interview I heard Wayne Dyer attribute this quote to Pierre Teillhard de Chardin; so it appears he is giving credit where credit is due. Yes, quite a memorable and meaningful quotation, especially considering the source: a French Jesuit priest, philosopher, and palenontologist/archeologist. I’ve updated the “About” page accordingly.

  2. Hello Peter,
    I do not know the people named by you & the quote “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience”
    What I feel is “Only to be human is to be spiritual.

    Peter the Tame Bear,

    I had originally “met” you in 2010, before the great “Burning Man” adventure and had never seen the man behind the mask. I
    consider it a great privilege to finally get to know you and follow your teachings. Sharing growth and knowledge is a special gift not everyone has, but you, my friend are among the best.

    My only regret is that this did not happen sooner, I would have avoided all the confusion and wasted hours. Although, someone very wise once told me that everything that happens to one in their journey called “life”, should be looked upon as a learning experience, we are in a huge classroom called life so quit saying If only, what if….

    Thank you so much for including me in your circle. I look forward to the trip.

  7. Your blog is very professionally designed. do you have a post where you share your experiences with traffic ad bar and leadsleep?

    Here on Tame Bear Weblog you can find a review of Traffic Ad Bar. (It’s one of my all-time favorite TEs.) Traffic Ad Bar was the very first TE I joined back in mid-2010 and I am still using it today.

    FYI: Owner Darren Merrett is working on a site redesign/relaunch happening within the next couple months. That should give Traffic Ad Bar a big boost. I’m looking forward to it!

    In addition to that review, you can search this site to find other comments about Traffic Ad Bar.
