As I’ve been exploring my spiritual path, one topic I have been working on is my 3rd eye. I’ve listened to binaural tones, used my Tibetan crystal singing bowl (which is tuned for the 3rd eye) while mediating and practicing my chanting, and of course watched tons of videos from some fantastic luminaries on YouTube.

I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us.
Before Khaled Hosseini (born March 4, 1965) became a novelist, he was a doctor. Even after his first book, The Kite Runner, was published, he continued to practice for another year and a half before deciding to write full time.
Is it fair to have given us the memory of what was and the desire of what could be when we must suffer what is?
Happy 67th birthday, Neil Jordan! His original dream was to write fiction, but Jordan successful films soon overshadowed his novels—My favorite, Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair (1999), he’s written and directed The Crying Game, Michael Collins, and Breakfast on Pluto.
