I wish all my dear readers all the blessings, goodness, kindness, good luck, triumph, perseverance, commitment, loyalty, and all the riches that life offers, all in a measure we are able to believe we can achieve, and imagine beholding, and prepare to receive. That sweet anticipation of a better and ever-improving future, beyond the normal turbulence we find […]

All the world is exactly and entirely as we have imagined it to be. That sounds so ordinary, but it is not. The “we” I speak of is everybody, all of us together, who are alive and imagining at this moment. If you read the Tame Bear Weblog regularly, you’ll recognize the underlying theme of […]

Few know it now, but we stand at the leading edge of one of the greatest cultural and spiritual renaissances the world has ever known. We have emerged from the greatest financial calamity our country has seen in nearly a hundred years. We appear to be as divisive as ever — some would say more […]

If The Bear appears to write often without making reference to God, it’s because God runs through all-that-is without ever being a separate thing. I do not wish to invoke the idea of a creator-God separated and apart from all else. This is why I see you as no less of a creator than God. You […]

An article this week in U.S. News titled “Why You Might Be Better Off Than You Think,” gives us plenty to be grateful for. In many ways that are easy to assess, American Life is still improving despite that dark cloud of the recent Great Recession we now see in our rear-view mirror. Here are […]

To celebrate this Christmas season, Tame Bear is pleased to present these two reprise podcasts of “TameBear Radio” from 2005 and 2006. During a “sabbatical from church,” Tame Bear finds there is still great anticipation and wonder at the baby’s birth. What is this loneliness, this longing we cannot find words to express? Perhaps what […]

Just believing in nonduality is similar to believing in other religions. Actually experiencing nonduality moment by moment is where it’s at. Hearing, seeing, touching, and other perceptions are happening. Experiencing these things demands a “me” to do the experiencing. Duality. To experience the sensuous being of all-that-is requires thought, applying meaning, using words. Thought, meaning, […]

Tribute The Bear is in awe of the once-a-year “Tribute in Light” that memorializes the horrific events of September 11th, 2001. It’s a remarkable testimony to the resilience of the human spirit. How is it that in remembrance of such an awful day — when the two towers that etched the New York skyline were […]

For several years now I’ve been describing to people why I meditate, though this is the first time I’ve written about it here. Meditation is a rewarding practice; the more I do it, the more I appreciate it and want to continue in the practice. I can list a few of the obvious reasons: It’s […]

How do you reconcile the idea of an all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving God with the reality of natural disasters? I hear friends trying to work this out each time there is a catastrophy like last week’s earthquake in Haiti. If you start with this concept of God and work out its logical conclusion, you may […]
