Doing and Being

2021-02-28T08:04:55-05:00February 28th, 2021|

There is quite a difference between doing and being.  With being, you flow.  Picture a leaf in a stream.  There is no effort.  It is moving effortlessly with the current.  In doing there is effort.  Oh, how much easier your life would be if you would learn to find that [...]

Without Effort

2021-02-27T08:06:38-05:00February 27th, 2021|

Rocks in a stream.  They impede the flow, but what does the stream do?  It does not stop.  It flows over and around, caressing the rock.  It does not complain, “Oh, you are in my way!”  No, onward it flows, ever so slowly wearing away at this obstacle without any [...]

Like Waves

2021-02-26T08:16:42-05:00February 26th, 2021|

You spray perfume to clear the air of unwanted scents, but what do you do with unwanted thoughts?  They do not disappear so easily, especially if you simply mask them.  Why, you look them straight in the eye, so to speak.  You acknowledge that they have arisen, for this is [...]

Pure Training

2021-02-25T07:59:56-05:00February 25th, 2021|

What is the first thing you think when you look at another? How do you judge that book by its cover? Do you notice the size, the shape, the gender, the race? Do you notice the smile, the frown, the lines on the face? This is pure training. You learned to see in this way. It [...]

With Discernment

2021-02-24T08:15:41-05:00February 24th, 2021|

Interpretations.  You read words passed down through the ages.  What do they mean?  Will you trust the interpretation of someone other than yourself, who may have been told what to believe by others as well?  Or will you move awareness to the heart, where dwells pure Awareness, your very Source, [...]

Never Out of Touch

2021-02-23T08:16:26-05:00February 23rd, 2021|

Swirling lights.  Bouncing orbs.  Flashes of insight.  Visions of beings now passed.  What to make of all of this?  You are not alone.  You are limited for a while in your sight and hearing and touch, but you are never out of touch with Divine Presence.  At times there is [...]

Reflections of Love

2021-02-21T21:50:26-05:00February 21st, 2021|

What are miracles, but signs that reflect back to us in undeniable ways the power of our True Nature. This past Saturday I gave a charity workshop called "Shedding Your Skin" to help you move beyond your fears (shedding your human "skin"/the ego) to freedom (the soul's innate state). We [...]

Playtime

2021-02-20T07:53:26-05:00February 20th, 2021|

Playtime.  It is what you give to children who have had to be too serious for a while.  Children need these breaks every so often.  And what of adults?  Yes, life can be serious, but are you not all little children inside?  If not, where has that child gone?  If [...]

With Awareness

2021-02-19T07:58:19-05:00February 19th, 2021|

Listen.  What do you hear when you stop talking?  What do you notice when you stop thinking?  You cannot stop thoughts from arising, but when you pause to listen, the thoughts arise and are noticed in awareness.  Now you can choose which ones to follow, instead of blindly responding to [...]

Courage

2021-02-18T09:11:59-05:00February 18th, 2021|

Suffer not.  You are not alone.  Be at Home in the heart and find there the strength to get through the challenges you face.  This strength comes from the soul, which knows you are up to the challenge.  Like a soldier who willingly goes into battle without fear, you can [...]

Ever-LIFE

2021-02-16T08:18:41-05:00February 16th, 2021|

You say, “This life is not all there is,” as you share your truth of an afterlife with others.  And speaking from the limited human point of view you are correct.  But point of view is everything.  From the point of view of Spirit—your true nature—this life IS all there [...]

Close at Hand

2021-02-15T08:29:58-05:00February 15th, 2021|

You as a soul agreed to come into form and wear a body for a while.  Such creative opportunities this experience affords you!  And you knew that this body would limit your awareness of your true Being.  And you knew that there would be fellow souls, perhaps a bit less [...]

Self-less

2021-02-14T09:13:31-05:00February 14th, 2021|

Valentine’s Day.  Named after a saint.  At times you joke that it takes saintly behavior to keep a relationship going.  As long as needs are being met, in most cases it is easy to love one another.  But what of the times when the self takes over?  What then?  Then [...]

Synchrony

2021-02-13T08:30:28-05:00February 13th, 2021|

Do you ever watch flocks of birds fly in synchrony?  They move as one.  Schools of fish do the same.  It is not like your “Whisper Down the Lane” game where one moves after another.  They fly or swim in unison.  If only you could hear the whispers of Spirit, [...]

Fresh

2021-02-11T08:28:23-05:00February 11th, 2021|

False starts.  There is a reason when something you are trying to do does not work out.  Pay attention and begin anew.  Do so with a blank canvas, if only in the mind, not a recreation of the first attempts.  As you come to trust the universe and tune in [...]

Causal

2021-02-10T08:45:20-05:00February 10th, 2021|

Everything does happen for a reason.  Yes, this is true.  Cause and effect is the law that explains this.  When you can discover the cause, then you become a more powerful creator.  In the physical world, cause and effect are often so far removed that you do not make the [...]

The Well

2021-02-09T08:14:19-05:00February 9th, 2021|

And so, you are going through a period of stress.  You do not know which way to turn.  Turn inward.  Yes, the same message again.  Has it been working for you to look outside of yourself?  Who can you trust?  What can you trust?  Ah yes, we hear you:  You [...]

This Part of You

2021-02-08T08:26:59-05:00February 8th, 2021|

Affirm, affirm, affirm:  “I am loved.”  Affirm, affirm, affirm:  “I am safe.”  Yes, you look about you and see harm being done.  You know that in a world of human beings and even in nature death and sickness occur, but you are so much more than human.  Do you know [...]

Purposeful

2021-02-07T08:55:15-05:00February 7th, 2021|

Would you ask the deep life questions if one you love had not passed?  Would you wonder about the purpose of life, the eternality of it if you did not feel a longing to be with them for eternity?  There is purpose in the brevity of the physical life.  Brevity, [...]

Play On

2021-02-06T08:14:34-05:00February 6th, 2021|

Musical notes.  They follow one after another, changing.  Except for your One Note Samba, it is the change that makes a song interesting.  Many do not like change, but it is the ups and downs of the notes of life that make it interesting, intriguing, and lead to growth.  “But [...]

In the Image

2021-02-05T08:39:00-05:00February 5th, 2021|

Inventions.  They seem to spring up from nowhere.  Creativity is the source.  Need is the impulse.  And voila:  something new.  A creation.  Do you see how you are created in the image of the Creator?  You were an idea.  You are born from the desire of the Source to birth [...]

Give and Take

2021-02-04T08:30:55-05:00February 4th, 2021|

You give and give and give, but can you allow yourself to take?  If not, what are you telling yourself?  Did you know that as a soul, there is no concept of worthy vs. unworthy?  At the soul level, you know that you are love in expression.  Love flows back [...]

Beyond the Human

2021-02-03T08:34:55-05:00February 3rd, 2021|

How do you explain tragedy when it strikes? When innocent people suffer?  When there is no good answer to “Why?”  You open to the mystery.  Pain propels you to seek answers beyond the human world of tragedy and triumph.  As you come to see this reality in a new light, [...]
