My name is Bob O’Hearn. I am retired from a career as a developer of natural and organic manufacturing, retail, and distribution systems in the United States. Currently, I live with my Beloved, Mazie,  in a lovely little mountain town called Paradise, situated on the ridge of the Little Grand Canyon, in the foothills of the Northern California Sierra Nevada range. I am not affiliated with any religious system, program, or group, although in the course of my life (and after spending 7 years in a Catholic seminary) I have lived and studied with a number of spiritual teachers in both the Buddhist as well as the Advaitic lineages, including 3 years in a Rinzai Zen Buddhist monastery. I am grateful for the friendship of all who visit this page, and wish you all well in your various endeavors.

    Hi, Bob. I’m Ngoc from Vietnam.
    I’m so happy that i found your blog on the topics i’m really interested in (spirituality, self-realization, conscious living…). I just have some personal questions regarding these topics, may i have your email to contact?
    Thank you!

      Greetings, Ngoc!

      I am glad that you find these essays worthwhile, but I am not a teacher, and do not carry on email correspondence. I normally suggest that those who wish to pursue these matters do so in the company of a qualified teacher, face to face. In Viet Nam for example, you might investigate the Dharma Centers established by Thich Nhat Hanh.


      Best Wishes!

  2. Hi Bob, my name is Azriel and I work at UPLIFTConnect. We have reblogged some of your beuatiful pieces before and are interested in reblogging your piece: The JOy of the Unknown. Of course we would link back to your site and credit you as the writer. Let me know if you have any questions or are happy for us to do this. You can see our site here: http://www.upliftconnect.com. My email is: azriel@uplift.global

    warm blessings, Azriel

      Please feel free, Azriel, what I share is for all, to ponder and perhaps find some resonance or inspiration, or at least a stimulation for further inquiry into these areas I have been exploring.


  3. Bob, I also would like to ask permission to re-blog a few of your entries, over time. I see from your response to Azriel in April 2016 that this is allowed. Your blog articles would be re-posted at http://www.groundedrelating.com. I can be reached at pamela@groundedrelating.com Please advise if your re-blog policy has changed? Thanks!
