The Continuing Story of Ananias and Sapphira

Available in e-book format at Amazon, or direct from ND Media via Payhip Karma Yoga: the path of action and service. Usually called “works” in Christianity. Pretty basic stuff. Raja Yoga: the path of self-discipline, including among other things the more familiar yoga techniques such as asanas, pranayama, meditation, and kriyas. Though there are no equivalent … Continue reading

THE RESURRECTION OF “BIRDING”

In 2014, JP worked with a small local publisher to put out his debut novel, a semi-autobiographical tale called “Birding in the Face of Terror.” Let’s just say that no part of the publishing process went as planned, and by late 2016 their relationship had ended, their contract was voided, and JP’s urge to publish was crushed.

A Sort of Homecoming: Central Coast Revisited, 2010

Birding in the Face of Terror began as a short story completed a few months after 9/11/01, with little beyond a journalistic account of the events on and around the bus trip with the American Birders Association to the three sites we visited. Upon finishing it, I knew there was an avalanche of related material and many thousands of words left unsaid, so I started expanding it into a novel. But sometime in mid-2002, my efforts hit a major psychological wall, and the project went on the shelf, not to be picked up again until 2009. Continue reading

Birding — From China with Love: The Landmark Tours

In Act IV of “Birding”, I spent a good deal of time describing Pedro’s bus trips with Chinese tourists to Yellowstone and many other national parks of the West in the summer of 2001. I’ve always wondered whether readers would assume this was one of the fictionalized elements of the novel, with a workload that … Continue reading

Pez King Teaser (Chapter 1)

Once, upon the timeless arc of the circle of time, there was a peasant. He lived in a small village in the heart of the Kingdom, near the towering, cloud-obscured mountains where the King was said to dwell.  Ordinary in most ways, the young peasant was exceptionally passionate and devout in his worship of the … Continue reading

Introduction to Spiritual Anarchism

The common thread through all aspects of anarchism is a bottom-up approach to empowering the individual to live by self-control. Ammon Hennacy’s oft-cited ideal of an anarchist as “someone who doesn’t need a cop to make him behave” is a reflection of this emphasis on self-governance. Continue reading

The Four Evolutionary Stages of Human Consciousness

Note: the follow material is grafted mostly word-for-word from a long section of monologue in Chapter IV of “The Peasant and the King.” I consider it more of an extract than an excerpt, for I did take out all the elements that put it in the context of the story with characters speaking and listening … Continue reading

The Peasant and the King

This is the story of a God-seeking peasant who is unable to find peace through the authoritative religion of his people. He is called on a journey that stretches his faith beyond its limits and breaks every bone of truth in his body, eventually teaching him that what he seeks has been seeking him. He … Continue reading
