Welcome to Just Sayin’ 2.0

From Social Justice & Socialism
to Meditation & Spirituality

The blog of BobLaycock.com
A rich, full-bodied eclectic blend of this, that & the other.

I believe that life is multi-dimensional. There’s the material realm that we occupy on Earth: comprised of “animals, vegetables and minerals,” as it were. We also occupy an inner mental or spiritual world that is our thoughts and emotions. And, I believe, there is a spiritual realm beyond the material reality we see and know, a realm beyond the ability of science to prove or disprove. It’s a metaphysical, etherial realm from which I believe we all came, to which we all remain connected and to which we will all return upon our deaths. I talk about all this at length in ‘What I Believe‘ for those interested.

This blog reflects all these dimensions of life. I touch on a little of this and a little of that. Probably not everything will appeal to everyone. Using the Categories menu atop this page or in the right side column you can explore those areas that do interest you — “Take the best & leave the rest!”

Thanks for stopping by & enjoy.
