An article in the Independent Weekly (indyweek.com) from August 27, 2008

"The Two Faces of Bo Lozoff: Fall from Grace"


"There comes a time when an individual becomes irresistible

and his action becomes all-pervasive in its effect.

This comes when he reduces himself to zero."

Mahatma Gandhi


now how the heck do you do that?

The Oracle Project Paper

The Oracle Gallery


           From 1985 to 1990 I worked on an experiment in the very strange field of Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), which is an attempt to bridge the gap between the physical and other planes by means of material devices. The project failed, but in time this kind of work could become significant. Here are some pictures from those years. (The Gallery is also listed on the Physics page; the paper, from 1998, is a little too whacky for anywhere but here!)



Who Am I?

    Who am I?

            I am not the thought.

    What thought?

            The thought that I am not the thought is the thought that I am not.


    Who am I?

            I am not the mind.

    What mind?

            The mind that thinks the thought that I am not the mind

            is the mind that I am not.


    Who am I?

            I am not the breath.

    What breath?

            The breath that feeds the mind that thinks the thought that I am not the  breath

            is the breath that I am not.


    Who am I?

            I am not the song.

    What song?

            The song that sings with breath that feeds the mind

            that thinks the thought that I am not the song

            is the song that I am not.


    Who am I?

    Political Theology
    “Go break the sod,” said our God
    “The world is here for you to own.
    Go forth and spread your fruitful sons;
    Subdue the beasts and dam the streams,
    Cut the trees and pave the streets,
    Burn the dead from eons past
    To feed the fires and turn the wheels.
    Enslave the poor and praise the rich;
    Make war for gold and kill for me.
    Obey your leaders and your priests
    Whom I have favored with my grace.
    Always more, and always faster;
    Mine the ore and crush the stone.
    Do this well, and I will teach you all a mighty lesson.”
    What our God said we longed to hear.
    We slew our Mother and sucked the marrow from her bones.
    The growing mob may come to dine,
    Tonight there is enough to eat.
    Forget tomorrow, we live but once;
    We drill but once, we burn but once, we mine but once.
    The fishing’s good, until there’s none.
    Tonight there is enough to eat.

 Lyrics to A Sufi Song, from Ananda Songs


I f the Beautiful One is not
       inside you what is that Light
       hidden beneath your cloak?
From a distance you tremble with fear. 
Can't you see the mighty warrior

         standing ready in your heart?  The

        flame in his eyes has seared away

        every veil!
So why do you linger behind the    

      curtain,   afraid of what you cannot  

Open your eyes!  The Beloved is
      staring you right in the face
If no guru has placed
      his Light within your heart
      what bliss can you find in this world?


   (adapted by B.R. from an excerpt of "Can't You See the Mighty Warrior", ode 406, in "A Garden Beyond Paradise: The Mystical Poetry of Rumi", translated by Jonathan Star, Bantam 1992)
