I was back in LA navigating between the buzzing wheels and flashing metal tearing up the sad freeways. I was all stoked for the Yamantaka empowerment. He was a wrathful multi-armed Tibetan protector. He looked like an alien bull. I also staying at Lindy's again. She was in Arizona visiting her mom. So I had her whole pad to myself. Every morning I then had my little ritual. I first started with the stair-climber, then I jumped into the pool and sat in the hot Jacuzzi. Shower, yoga, and pujas followed. Then it was breakfast while reading the LA Times. At least two full hours of bodymind prep were needed for an LA day. Lindy would call now and then, to check-up on me.


" Hello ? "

" Michael? Is that you? "

" Yeah. "

" How's everything going? "

" Just fine. "

" Are you sure? "

" Yeah! Everything's just fine. "

" Don't leave any candles burning on your altar if you're out. You know an earthquake could hit. "

" Yeah, Lindy, don't worry. "

" Don't call me lindy! Only my family can call me that. "

" Yeah, ok, Lindy. "

" I said.."

" Yeah, you said. "

" Also, make sure you give Diane, the keys when you leave. "

" I will. "

" And don't forget to park your car behind my car in the tenant's garage. They get pretty pissed off about that. "

" Yeah. "

" And don't forget to put all the newspapers in a pile after you're done. I have to cut out articles for my classes. "

" I will. "

" By the way did you find an envelope with a thousand dollars in cash. I think I misplaced it somewhere. "

" Nope. You're place is a mess. I really don't wanna touch anything. "

" Oh, and don't forget there's some milk in the fridge for you. "

" Thanks. "

" And, some organic soup in the cupboard. Just put boiling water into it. "

" Right. "

" OK! Take care now, BYE. "

" Uh, huh.."


It was another LA day. I could hear this all-piercing scream coming, clearly from an airplane flying above the condo. The walls of the living-room started to shudder. From the terrace, I could see that the swimming pool was empty.

Intelligent, pervocative, fascinating, and did I already mention...
did I already mention how much I have enjoyed this series, "Harvest of Gems"! Again, thanks for coming here and sharing your exceptional talent, real life experiences, and intelligent thought provocating writing. All of your work fascinates me, Michael. Also, again, thanks for sending me that email concerning your experience with my lama Wangchen Rinpoche, much appreciated.

Your personal website is a filled with a wealth of writings, information and photos, etc., that have been a pleasure to explore. Your support and friendship during these past few months has been much appreciate. As you know I have been overwhelmed and busy and have not been able to do as much reading or visit the internet as much as I used to, but hopefully as the new season rolls around I will once again find the blessing of precious free time.
Blessings to you, Michael;-) Namaste~

Harvest 1-4


Harvest was transmitted on Lit.or and My Space in two sequences. The Journey to Eurasia Harvest vol 3 and now these extracts from Harvest 1 and 2, You could say they ate a prequel to H 3 though both in style and substance are different.

Extracts from Harvest 4 maybe transmitted later. They deal with you know what...
