Experiencing the Fire

Robert D Pope/ October 7, 2011

Thou shall not judge, the proclamation read, yet judge was all “it” did. Assessing, evaluating, comparing, on and on “it” goes…unending.

Robert D Pope/ December 16, 2009

After completing the Landmark Forum in 2003, I found myself in state of bliss that lasted for five days. I thought that I had finally achieved enlightenment.  I experienced my mind being very quiet and the world around me to be a very kind, peaceful place.

What would happen if we were all happy?

Robert D Pope/ August 22, 2008

Here I sit in a class on blogging and the importance of blogging in creating viral marketing and getting “the word” out.  In my life so far, sharing what I have to say with others in a written format has not been a passion.  I prefer to talk with you face to face, feel your emotions and read your body
