Her name was Kate Alease Ely Turner and she was a remarkable person. The first thing anyone would note about my mother was that she truly loved the Lord. She had a spiritual glow about her that showed in her smile.She... Read more

Except Ye Come as a Child

Except Ye Come as a Child

It is easy to love babies. They are fresh, innocent, soft and cuddly. They have no political views, no Religion, no Philosophy. They are pure vessels of life responding naturally to the stimuli the world introduces to them. The Bible tell us that "Except ye be converted and come as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven." From this reading, we may conclude that God, himself,... Read more

No one expects a boxer to be pretty, much less, remain pretty after a fight. However, Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Clay, Jr. was not one to do the expected. He not only maintained his good looks through 61 professional fights, 56 of which he won but he took the sport of boxing to a new level for starters. Before he became known as Ali, the then Clay injected excitement into each upcoming fight with... Read more

Purple Rain: The Zen of Prince

The Purple Prince performs for his subjects. When mind, body and spirit unite to perform a single act that is called Zen activity. When such an activity takes place those who witness it are transported in kind. The shy-electric virtuoso we called, Prince produced this effect with every performance but no performance revealed his mastery of his art more to me than his guitar and vocal solo on "Purple... Read more

This depiction of Roshi Kitabu Turner was featured in EnlightenmentNext magazine. It was the centerfold of the issue. There was a time, an eternity ago, when my quest to embrace The Way was a secret quest. I was alone in my experimentation, aware only that I was being guided to step into the unknown with certainty. Since no one knew what I was doing there was no one to criticize my approach.... Read more

Jim Kelly had charm, grace, good looks and wit, added to his Karate, they were an unbeatable combinatiion. His death on June 29 certainly caused a ripple in the Martial arts world.

Perhaps, that is why his character,... Read more

From time to time we have to reflect on our core mission. Artwork from a centerfold of What Is Enlightenment? (magazine) My initial enlightenment experience (satori, in Japanese) took place in 1971. It was deepened five years later when I encountered Master Sant Keshavadas of the Himalayan meditative tradition. I emptied myself so that I might mature under a seasoned master. Years passed before... Read more

MAY DAY! Suppose no one answers your cries for help?

April 30, 2012 by · 0 

The tradition continues When I read a newspaper article or hear a news report detailing how someone has been injured or killed by a senseless act of violence I am deeply troubled. On one hand, I am grieved by the fact that a person can be so lacking in human compassion that they have no problem inflicting pain, suffering or death on someone else. Yet, these crimes do take place, daily. No one knows... Read more
