Naysayers, skeptics, cynics, nihilists, pessimists, doom-mongers and grumpy old men abound.....on the other hand, a growing cadre of humanity has rejected the gloom and doom of the morose mob. Life is an opportunity to explore, discover, savor, enjoy, muse over and experience the bounty of the Cosmos....There is so much to learn, so much to facilitate our understanding of the meaning of life. Why is it that when we see a spectacular sunset we are filled with an awe that transcends reason, logic and understanding? What is it in that sunset that strips away the buffer that separates us from our True Self? The Cosmos is a living entity, the characteristics of which are such that they do not fit in any of the boxes we have constructed, hence we must construct a new box for it. We are blessed with free thought with which we can pierce the veil of ignorance and establish a rapport with the Living Cosmos. Through a coordinated approach of meditation, cleansing of the self, and a realization that we have a purpose, that the earth, the sun, the moon, the stars and galaxies form a natural Web of Cognitive Energy, each of us can tap into this web and begin the process of remembering our true status, an integral part of the web, a Cosmic Player, an agent of Celestial Consciousness.

Too many people are hoodwinked by the allure of banality and sink into the abyss of mundane pursuits, chasing after things, grasping for the very material wealth that enslaves us and drains our energy and leaves us bereft of spirituality. A new car is only new for one year, new clothes go out of fashion overnight, every ephemeral phenomenon we struggle and scratch for fades away right before our eyes...relationships, jobs, homes, interests, all come and go. Only our relationship with the eternal Cosmos and our evolving into spiritual beings is worth our devotion. As a spiritual being we see things differently, we have different expectations, our perception is totally different. We strive to connect with kindred spirits, to associate with those who share our view, and to find ways to make the world a better place. We abhor all that trashes the human spirit and renders an individual a cog in the societal clockwork.
