    Aloha Brother!

    I can’t truly express how much your blog has touched me. You convey profound truths in such an accessible way through The Conscious Process. In Adventures in Dreamland, you share your experiences with such depth and detail that I feel like I am there with you. As a result, I have nominated you for a Liebster Award. Thank you so much for sharing these jewels with the world. I am eternally grateful for you, Bob.


    Love & Blessings!

      Thank You so much for your kind appreciation, Sister! I am very moved that my ramblings have inspired you, just as your wonderful blog has inspired me and certainly many others.

      Mahalo, and Many Blessings!

    oh my, now I see it is all YOUR work Bob, doh! I have been reading links posted by Christopher on T&ZCF for some time & loving them & wondering what sources they came from, lovely to know it’s all from one wise head, ha! I would like to *subscribe* to ALL of your publishings, is there an efficient way to do that? Blessings 🙂 Maree

    • Bob OHearn says:

      Hi Maree! Thank you for your kind appreciation! I’m not sure if there is a way to subscribe to all the blogs in one fell swoop, but if you just click on each link and then click on “FOLLOW” in the top right, it will subscribe you.

    I have recently stumbled across your blog and saw that you often blog about confirmation and spirituality. I find topics like this to be completely enlightening. I don’t know if you have ever heard of Kirk Nugent, he is an incredible Light Worker. He writes and lives the same spiritual lifestyle that you write about. I think you may find him interesting. Take a look at the video I have attached and you will understand how life changing he can be. Thank you for your time I hope you find Kirk Nugent as inspirational and life changing as I do. I’d love to know what you think about him.

  9. Beautiful blog, since learning of Nisargadatta Maharaj, all paths lead back to his teachings even on wordpress!

    Hi Bob,
    I am very glad to bump into your work early this morning; it’s uplifting. And, so I clicked the Like and Follow buttons and continue to read your posts. Thank you for your passion.

    Hi Bob,

    Your words go far beyond the intellect and into the very intelligence itself! It is like breathing a breath of immaculately pure fresh air!

    The “I” consists of 100%, completely conditioned, automatic reactivity. It is simply an extremely complex, automatic thought process; thought leading to thought leading to thought. No independent “choice” lies there. There is zero deviation from the conditioned path.
    So, what about all this talk of Awakening, or Enlightenment? There exists no such thing to awaken, unless it is the ego “I”, which awakens or not, depending upon it’s conditioned karmic path.

    So, in that sense, I can understand the advice:
    “There is nothing to do, or undo.
    Nothing to want, nothing to force, and nothing missing. And everything happens by itself.”
    ~ Lama Gendun Rinpoche ~

    Bob – I have been thinking of you these past days with the fire having taken most homes in Paradise. I thought I remembered you lived there or at least near there. Wishing you well in these challenging times.

  21. Candace says:

    We’re all thinking of you, Brother! Hope you don’t mind that I shared the GoFundMe. Sending much love and aloha to you and your family!

  22. Bob OHearn says:

    Thank you and great to hear from you, Candace! ❤

  23. Judy says:

    Hi Bob. Some of the most profound writings I’ve ever read come through the person of Bob, even though you say you’re not a teacher. I wasn’t sure how to contact you directly so I guess I’ll ask here. Would it be OK to print some of these from the Conscious Process, so I have them permanently? Not to be indelicate, but if this website disappeared someday, I would sure be disappointed! Thank you so much for having all these writings available.

  24. Erik Papik says:

    Hi Bob, would you consider yourself to be a spiritual teacher/master or a fellow traveler? I like your blog and was wondering. Best wishes!

    • Bob OHearn says:

      Thank you Erik, I am glad you find the blog of value! I don’t consider myself a teacher, or anything in particular. I just share what I have learned, as a form of public service. Best wishes to you too!
