What Is This?

Your mouse and keyboard have somehow managed to give you an encounter with this, the home page of yours truly, Dave Becker…

This is where I write stuff. Present stuff. Express myself. Sometimes… Okay… Every once in a great while. Google me, and here’s where you might wind up. Narcissistic, perhaps. Fine. This is the only place I get to be so and nobody whines about it.

One wolf represents fear, lies, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, vindictiveness, resentment, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other wolf stands …

Being Cause-in-the-Matter

“Ultimately, being cause-in-the-matter is a context from which one chooses to live. Being cause-in-the-matter is not burden, fault, praise, blame, credit, shame or guilt—there is no evaluation of good or bad, right or wrong. There is simply what’s so, and your stand.
