Spiritual Politics: Oxymoron or Real Possibility?

by Jerry Kvasnicka Once again in the United States we are in the midst of election for President and members of Congress. Backed by large campaign treasure chests and ample staffs of supporters, aspirants for office are again engaged in fierce competition for votes and in the process making lavish promises to recharge the economy, […]

Awaken, Arise, Activate

  Hear the Call from the Source of All   Awaken!  Creator Son of Reality, Awaken!  Sons and Daughters of God, created in the image of… Don’t go and give your power away, then stop to think and say, I wish there was another way. You are powerful! You are free!  You are the creator […]

What Stuff

What stuff of which we are made. All image we see, shadow and streak In it we are made. All charm we hear, rumbling and humming The plink of a solitary raindrop, a pine needle long tumbling to earth Of that we are made. All our flesh may touch, tender and coarse, Crouched and handled, […]

Yes those who live in this thriving spiritual community are committed to demonstrate enlightened […]

When All of Life Becomes a Meditation

by Jerry Kvasnicka Every evening after work he descended into his small basement apartment, assumed a lotus position in front of a blank space of wall and began counting his breaths, fiercely concentrating on each number until nothing occupied his consciousness but the number. 1… 2… 3… After each cycle of ten he started over. […]

Living Still

The air is still tonight. Scarcely a breeze disturbs the cool of Springtime. The robins are asleep. Familiar stars gleam in their accustomed home. I am content, resting, as my friend describes it, “In the lap of heaven.” Yet well I know, as I so quiet rest, That turbulence erupts, terrible and crushing, In many […]

What Is Your S.I.Q.?

by Jerry Kvasnicka S.I.Q. stands for “spiritual intelligence quotient.” It has to do with the spiritual discernment and consequent expression in living that results when consciousness is primarily informed by the universal essence that connects us all rather than by reaction to external factors. For personal and planetary health S.I.Q. is far more important than […]

Eye of the Storm – Journey through Meditation

Peace, Be still, the Master doth now declare To the furious flurry of whirling water and air I AM the commander of the ship and the sea All the parts of my world center back unto me Be still, thy turbulent waves and tempest winds Drop into the stillness and withdraw within   An awakened […]

Depression and Its Antidote

by Jerry Kvasnicka A radio talk show I listened to a few years ago featured a female sociologist being interviewed on the subject of depression. She said that according to recent studies married women are more likely to suffer from depression than married men, that some two thirds of all married women do experience depression, […]

Wisdom From the Back of a Car

submitted by Jerry Kvasnicka As I stated in the initial installment of this series I find a lot of wisdom in bumper stickers and keep a list of them handy for illustrating and driving home points I’m seeking to make in casual conversation or more public statements. Bumper stickers seem to have a marvelous ability […]

The Spirit Nation

Rhyming communication, enhancing realization   Be active in the preparation of your station For the ongoing calibration of your vibration To a higher elevation in this material nation   In a sincere affirmation of divination and holy individuation, Follow the gentle condensation of sensation through meditation And receive vital information for your present incarnation   […]

Lead Them – Live Them

We have an opportunity here, you and I To change the world, standing side by side With love in our hearts and kindness in our eyes We have strength and we shall not compromise   We don’t need a preacher, what we need is a teacher So do not speak at me; see with me, […]

Bluebird Wisdom

I took a walk in the forest to speak with the trees, in search of that something that everyone seeks. So many wonders and questions that fill up my mind, to help me understand my purpose this time. Suddenly she came, as perfect as could be. A blue bird singing this song from a tree. […]

Opportunity in Extremity

by Jerry Kvasnicka If human beings have demonstrated anything in their somewhat less than glorious history on this planet, it is a reluctance to alter their thinking and behavior as long as they are essentially comfortable. It often requires a state of depression or even desperation brought on by the loss of health, of a […]


A lifetime spent since days of childhood and school Getting by… just trying to fit in, look good and be cool I find I’m governed by expectations of an exterior world So I allowed myself a box into which I crimpled and curled The largeness of myself, being bordered and confined I fell asleep and […]
