Letting Go

2017-08-31T11:06:42-04:00August 31st, 2017|

What if everything you thought to be true turned out to be wrong? What if it all was a dream? “Oh, not talk of illusion again!” ego cries at reading these words. No, we will not do that to you. We know how much you value your world, how much [...]

Dynamics

2017-08-30T10:52:40-04:00August 30th, 2017|

The bond between child and mother is one of the strongest.  You know each other at a cellular level.  Love or hate each other for your human ways, it matters not—you are connected by that cord that at one time fed you and once cut continues to connect you energetically. [...]

Without Your Story

2017-08-28T10:45:44-04:00August 28th, 2017|

Without your story you would have no anger.  Why is that?  For stories tell you what to think.  They come with their inherent shoulds and musts.  When others do not meet your should and musts, you feel anger (or disappointment, or, however you may fill in the blank).  Then why [...]

Strength

2017-08-27T10:31:57-04:00August 27th, 2017|

Fortitude … it means strength and will and determination.  When does a person have fortitude?  When they know they have “back-up.”  If you thought you were completely alone, you might feel a bit of trepidation, but fortitude gives you confidence.  Merely feeling the energy of the word, you may sit [...]

Growing

2017-08-26T10:50:17-04:00August 26th, 2017|

When you hear one expressing an opinion that differs from your own, try not to think in terms of better or worse.  That is growth happening.  That is Life unfolding and expressing itself.  Do you look at the stalk of a flower and berate or belittle it because it has [...]

Presento

2017-08-25T11:31:01-04:00August 25th, 2017|

If you find yourself making excuses when faced with what you perceive is an important task, then you are not present. Excuses and apologies take you into the past when you might not have met expectations. Expectations take you into the future. When you feel yourself making excuses and justifications [...]

That’s Life

2017-08-24T11:36:36-04:00August 24th, 2017|

Duel all you want with each other.  It will get you nowhere.  Sooner or later one may win, the other may lose, and you know how both of those endings feel.  What if instead, you agree to disagree?  What if you see that you are not meant to think alike, [...]

Focus

2017-08-23T11:09:00-04:00August 23rd, 2017|

When you look at another, you see what you think you see, what you believe you see—a story you have created based on what you have experienced or been told.  That other looks upon you the same way.  And when your stories interact, you dance and play your learned parts [...]

Savoring

2017-08-22T11:56:07-04:00August 22nd, 2017|

Do you savor life or rush through it?  Your eating habits may prove quite illuminating in this regard.  Do you savor every bite, noticing the flavors and the textures, feeling gratitude for the source, the provider, and the preparer of it, or do you rush through it without being aware [...]

Wordless

2017-08-21T10:35:44-04:00August 21st, 2017|

Words are an impediment to knowing.  When you feel a presence in your meditations or when sitting or walking in the silence, tune in to what you know.  You are in the habit of putting knowingness into words, and as often happens in the process of translating languages, important nuances [...]

Transmuted

2017-08-20T11:49:45-04:00August 20th, 2017|

Love your anxieties.  Love them to pieces.  Literally.  As you become aware of that anxious, prickly feeling in the body—the one that comes with a voice that says, “I must, I have to , what if I do, what if I don’t …” –grasp it gently like an object, that [...]

Banished!

2017-08-16T10:25:13-04:00August 16th, 2017|

Diversionary tactics.  This is what ego uses to keep you from discovering your magnificence.  If you truly remembered who and what you are, you would claim your royal lineage and ego would be banished to servant status.  To keep himself from this outcome, he takes your mind and fills it [...]

When It Rains

2017-08-15T11:07:43-04:00August 15th, 2017|

You put an umbrella over your head when it rains.  This allows you to stay dry.  But what happens when you find yourself without it?  You panic.  "Oh, no!  I might get wet!"  This is a wonderful opportunity--this moment of thinking you lack what you need.  Now, instead of taking [...]

Jigsaw Puzzle

2017-08-14T10:55:49-04:00August 14th, 2017|

Look around you.  What do you see?  Exactly and only what your belief system wants you to see.  The brain is like that.  It turns your life into a sort of jigsaw puzzle and it will seek out only the pieces that fit just right.  You expect certain “kinds” of [...]

Shining

2017-08-13T11:02:01-04:00August 13th, 2017|

You are so accustomed to feeling human, with all that entails, that you forget how easily you can shift  identity.  You are far more than human.  You are a beautiful light—a soul—and beyond that you are the Light.  There are certain attributes associated with the light.  To identify more readily [...]

Trusting

2017-08-11T11:06:16-04:00August 11th, 2017|

You can relax now. Spirit has things well in hand. Worry and fear cause constriction. How can inspiration flow when you are tied up in knots? “But how can I relax?” you think, and that is the problem. Cease thinking. Be present and breathe. Focus on one word: Trust. When [...]

All In

2017-08-10T10:37:57-04:00August 10th, 2017|

When your heart is not in it, as you are wont to say, there is a reason. Listen to the heart. Follow the heart. There is a reason things do not turn out as well as you would prefer if you do a thing when your heart’s not in it. [...]

Reunion

2017-08-08T12:23:30-04:00August 8th, 2017|

A happy reunion--that is what you can expect when you cross the veil.  Those who have passed before you will greet you and show you that they have been with you all along.  They will congratulate you for completing your curriculum, if in fact you have done so.  They will [...]

Without Regret

2017-08-07T10:15:57-04:00August 7th, 2017|

Regret, regret, regret.  Do you feel how the mere mention of the word brings you down?  Instantly the brain finds a match and creates the feeling.  It is quite easy for you to do.  Are you a slave to the brain?  Become aware.  Awaken to your power.  Regret lies in [...]

Show Up

2017-08-06T09:20:23-04:00August 6th, 2017|

Just show up.  That is all you ever need do.  In fact, you cannot help but show up, but once you become aware of this very basic truth, I AM, the desire awakens to do something with this awareness.  The paradox is that you need not do anything.  By being [...]

History

2017-08-05T08:23:23-04:00August 5th, 2017|

When you have a history with a person, you get in a dangerous rut.  Not dangerous in terms of your safety, but in terms of your soul’s growth.  The his-story and her-story between you keeps you focused on what came before and what you think will come in the future [...]

Love is Love

2017-08-03T08:15:36-04:00August 3rd, 2017|

Does a star in the sky compete with another?  Does it judge another, compare its size and brightness?  Then why do humans?  For you forget who you are.  In that forgetfulness, you become desperate for love and good feelings, when nothing could feel better than the realization of the Truth [...]

Your Name

2017-08-01T08:32:57-04:00August 1st, 2017|

What if none of you had a name? It would be quite cumbersome for those who rely upon worded descriptions. Why, then you would have to say something like, “Please contact the woman with the brown hair who always smiles and speaks with a French accent, and, and, and …” [...]
