Floating

2022-08-31T15:41:23-04:00July 31st, 2021|

Why is floating on a raft so pleasant?  You don’t have to do a thing.  You bob and rock gently on a surface that supports you on yet another surface that supports you on yet another surface that supports you … the body on the raft on the water [...]

Signs

2021-07-29T09:50:45-04:00July 29th, 2021|

Yes, you got the sign you asked for, and then what you wanted did not come to pass.  What is up with that?  Perhaps you simply needed a reminder that you are not alone.  You are not independent.  You are part of a wholeness in which all is interconnected.  “But [...]

Fresh

2021-07-28T09:33:14-04:00July 28th, 2021|

Your breath has been recycled.  So has your body.  It is all energy-information, even your thoughts.  And oh, how your thoughts are recycled.  Round and round they go in the eddies of the mind.  Your mind is quite different from the One Mind from which all thoughts arise.  Those you [...]

Interconnected

2021-07-27T10:17:20-04:00July 27th, 2021|

You are in this together.  Pity, you were taught to go it alone.  They say, “No man is an island,” but even islands are not separated from the mainland.  Take away the water and what do you have?  Contiguous land.  You are all interconnected.  So, when challenges arise, most especially [...]

Obstacles

2021-07-25T09:38:36-04:00July 25th, 2021|

Difficulties will continuously arise.  This is the obstacle course you call “life.”  How you perceive them is all-important in how you navigate them.  You may not have a choice in what you do about a challenge, but what you think about it is up to you.  You were most likely [...]

Strands

2021-07-24T10:21:53-04:00July 24th, 2021|

Made of the same cloth.  You know this term to mean that two people share the same traits or characteristics.  What if you truly understood that each of you is a thread in one tapestry of consciousness-energy?  You truly are made of the same cloth.  All of you.  Some threads [...]

By Way of Example

2021-07-23T10:40:04-04:00July 23rd, 2021|

Exemplary.  The word implies that a thing serves as an example.  Used in a positive light, you hold it up as a model for others to emulate.  What is the highest attribute a human can model?  Loving kindness.  This has naught to do with success or riches.  Loving acts of [...]

Choices

2021-07-22T10:41:10-04:00July 22nd, 2021|

You are familiar with choices. Thirty-two flavors of ice-cream … a menu with multiple options. “Which one shall I choose today?” Oh, the excitement! Choice is how you learn and grow. With food and clothing, choice is simple. It is a matter of taste. With patterned behaviors, it is not [...]

Unrestricted

2021-07-20T11:01:42-04:00July 20th, 2021|

You sit in a chair that is too small for your body.  It limits your movement.  What do you think it is like for the soul to inhabit a body?  It is by choice that the soul incarnates.  It does so knowing the limitations this imposes on the Light.  It [...]

Growing Awareness

2021-07-19T10:31:47-04:00July 19th, 2021|

The passing of a loved one from physical to non-physical—what you would call death—is an adjustment, for you ordinarily can only see the ordinary.  You are focused on the physical world to the exclusion of that beyond the senses.  Were you able to travel the spectrum of Consciousness, which makes [...]

Waving

2021-07-18T09:46:10-04:00July 18th, 2021|

In the analogy of Consciousness being the ocean and each one of you a wave, you can see that the ocean and the wave are inseparable.  You can also see that you and those around you are waves of the same ocean interacting as you will.  When you arise close to [...]

Expanding

2021-07-17T10:13:45-04:00July 17th, 2021|

You are far more than the physical body.  Keeping your attention within the confines of the head and thinking that this is the center of all knowing is restricting what is available to you.  You are one light in a field of twinkling stars, yet you are also the entire [...]

Remembering

2021-07-16T10:15:06-04:00July 16th, 2021|

Don’t forget to flow.  Forget?  How could you forget what comes naturally?  In the same way that you forget moment by moment that you are far more than a person in a body with a mind. How could you forget something as fundamental as being a being of light on [...]

A Joy of Its Own

2021-07-15T10:21:18-04:00July 15th, 2021|

Anticipation.  It can be joyous and full of excitement, or unwanted and full of dread.  Yes, it is the human way to look toward the future, but in so doing you miss the finer details of what is here and now.  Being present is a practice.  The mind wanders back [...]

Breaking Through

2021-07-14T02:03:16-04:00July 14th, 2021|

Breakthroughs in your level of consciousness, in your soul’s growth, happen incrementally.  You are who and where you are due to every choice made previously.  Are you ready for a breakthrough?  Begin by setting aside the guilt.  There is not one among you without regrets, be they big or small.  [...]

Observing

2021-07-13T09:52:44-04:00July 13th, 2021|

A dog gets a new toy and immediately sets upon chewing it. This is instinct.  How many things do you do by instinct?  How often do you choose things that may not be in your soul’s best interest because you are following the instinctual behavior of the human nature?  These patterns [...]

Insistent

2021-07-12T10:17:18-04:00July 12th, 2021|

What does Spirit ask of you?  Your trust that life is unfolding in a manner that allows for the greatest growth, the greatest joy, the greatest peace.  You may not see it now from the view behind the physical eyes.  Do you feel that pressure in the chest … that [...]

Noticing

2021-07-11T10:36:23-04:00July 11th, 2021|

Behold!  What is before you?  Do you truly notice what is around you, or are you running on automatic?  What was that person you just spent the evening with wearing?  They went to such pains to dress nicely.  Did you notice, or were you only aware of things within your [...]

The One Tone

2021-07-10T09:41:53-04:00July 10th, 2021|

Resonance … you see this effect when striking a key on a piano and other strings vibrate along with it, yet others do not.  You recognize those with whom you resonate.  There is one tone with which all will vibrate, and that is loving-kindness.  It matters not if those on [...]

One Big Web.

2021-07-09T21:54:54-04:00July 9th, 2021|

When I met Ingrid Honkala at an IANDS conference a few years ago, we held each other's gaze.  "I know you," I said, a bit stunned by the feeling of intimate connection.  "I know you, too," she said with a soft smile.  Neither of us had ever heard of the [...]

Nurtured

2021-07-08T09:41:08-04:00July 8th, 2021|

You were not nurtured by all as a child?  At the soul level, you were always and are always nurtured … loved … adored … cherished.  At times, in your human story, you revert to child-like ways, kicking and screaming in an odd attempt to receive love and attention.  Recognize [...]

Navigating

2021-07-07T10:06:06-04:00July 7th, 2021|

Every moment is an opportunity.  Imagine a map.  You see many roads.  At each intersection you can make a choice.  “Do I turn here or not?  Do I turn right or left?”   Many times, you get on one highway and are afraid to take the turns that present themselves.  One [...]

In Motion

2021-07-04T10:21:53-04:00July 4th, 2021|

Life flows in cycles.  Within these are ups and downs, yet because evolution is part of the process, there is an ever onward, ever upward component to experience.  Think in terms of a spiral.  Instead of round and round, it is round and up you go, and yet, there will [...]

Secure

2021-07-03T09:43:12-04:00July 3rd, 2021|

Insecurity.  The word means not feeling safe.  For most of you, it means not feeling loved.  “What will others think?”  Why does it matter?  Understand:  you learned that others’ approval is all-important, starting with the parents.  You learned to sing and dance to garner smiles, laughter, applause in its many [...]
