If you watch the news these days you’d wonder if there is anything good happening in the world. All the news channels care about is the tragic, the horrific, the sensational, the controversial, shock, chaos, sadness, darkness. Yes, these are a part of our world, but we have so much more to be thankful for […]

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 […]

In the following three videos, Dr. Lothar Shäfer of University of Arkansas delivers a presentation titled “Quantum Reality and the Importance of Consciousness in the Universe,” drawing a connection between our current scientific understanding of quantum physics and the role of non-dual, non-local conscious awareness. This presentation took place in Barcelos Portugal, in 2010. Shäfer begins […]

Whew! What a day, what a day, what a day… Hey, is it only Monday??? I got a lot done today, and am kicking back with a manhattan and reminiscing about this thing we call “the world,” “reality,” the shared dream of our existence. Yeah, it only takes one or two of these manhattens to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Robert Anton Wilson presents the concept of “reality tunnels” to explain how intelligence is evolving by studying itself. Here are a few key points to watch for: “Knowledge wherever it’s discovered is traveling over the whole world faster and faster.” “Yoga is the science of the East. Science is the yoga of the West.” ~John […]

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, […]

In a remarkably well-articulated story by Huffington Post blogger Robert Lanza, we are given a tour of recent research and contemporary thought into the nature of time. From the paradox of motion passing through many moments of time (like individual frames in a movie); Heisenberg’s inevitable uncertainties as to location and direction of moving objects; to the […]

Earlier this evening The Bear was in Sauder Concert Hall on the midwestern campus of Goshen College, listening to the incredible harmonies and delicate musical precision of The Wailin’ Jennys. Such inspiring perfection is hard to come by, and enthralling to hear. Many a bear might otherwise wonder, what in MY life approaches such perfection? […]
