Never Too Late for Love

I just finished watching Batman Begins. For, at the time, an unknown reason, I felt compelled to watch it again. In the movie Ra’s Al Guhl, the head of the League of Shadows, is intent on destroying Gotham. The League’s charter over the centuries has been to destroy cities and countries that lost their way …

Heaven on Earth

As you begin to glimpse the reality that nothing but God exists the tendency arises to assume that if only God is, then I am God. It seems a logical conclusion but nothing about Reality is logical. The key is this: Only God Is. Only God; no you. The appearance of individuality is quite valid. …

The Sweet Spot

At the center of the cross lies the Sweet Spot, the intersection of our messy humanness and our Divine Nature. It is alive, teeming with sacred potential in a constant state of fulfillment-ing. It is the portal of eternal genesis, the fountain birthing and re-birthing each form, from quark to Universe, into timeless crystalline existence. …

Infinite, Intelligent, Invincible Love

Conventional understanding of truth shapes most people’s reality. It certainly shaped mine for most of my life. My truths were based on cause and effect, on two powers, on myself and something acting against or for me. Most were unseen, rambling around the collective mind, awaiting the perfect timing to appear in this awareness. Once …

The Truth About Abundance

I am come that ye might have life, and that ye might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 Battered and bruised, my tight grip on money ripped apart, and still I would not listen. Spiritual growth continued, expanding, opening into possibility, life flowing more and more easily, and still I could not hear the truth. …

The Song Unfolds

This that Is, the All there ever was or will be, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient This that I Am, the perfect This-ness Perfect material sense of life in action Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient The creative, Eternal Genesis of life Flowing, manifesting, returning to Source With each quickening, this liquid origami swan, The pure flowing water of life …

Darth Vader, A True Love Story

Qui-Gon believed Anikan was the chosen one. When Qui-Gon died, Obi-Wan took over Anikan’s training as a Jedi, believing as his master Qui-Gon did, that Anikan was the great hope. Yoda was never quite certain. He always had questions about Anikan. He sensed the boy’s confusion, his fear, his clinging to desire, his ego. Throughout …

Ah … Dumbledore

Today I am optimistic. All about me, people are heaving with concern for the future of our world. At a glance, I admit, it looks dire. Compassion and caring, love and generosity, what to me makes a true human, seem to be in short supply. I just re-watched the Harry Potter series. I love all …

Namaste

I raised my two hands in front of my heart in Namaste, just like I have hundreds of times before. The impression of my fingers snugged up together—prayer hands—altered something within me, something that only moments before had been constrained by ordinary awareness wrapped in concepts of duality, of two-ness, of me and not me. …

Ecstatic Sound

“In the beginning was the Word.” Listen. Do you hear it? Do not pay attention to the words; listen to the sound. Listen into the sound. Let all you are deeply, purely attune to the sound. Any sound. Pick one and begin. Listen to the sound of a hummingbird as it flies past, its wings …

Living as Vulnerability

In the moments before awakening this morning, I heard a deep voice speak. The words, “Saffy will begin her spiral and leave soon.” Was it just my mind speaking its attachment to the beautiful, furry black compassion and companionship she so embodies? Or, was it the voice of prophecy? Was the day nearing when I …

Greatest Miracle of All

How do I begin to write about what happened today? The magic and mystery of my wooded walk took me deeper into its bosom. I walked with a friend. We were chatting, not having a particularly deep conversation, but aware and observant. As we walked over the small rise, I noticed the energy of a …

Intensity

I used to call life in a 3D body density. Now I know it to be Intensity. Want to be fully here? Want to live as Christ? Feel the Intensity, the Whole of You. Feel the Creative Life Force intensified into the pinpoint of life that is your unique expression of This. Until we feel …

Home Tree

“Mother, I am filled with your emptiness. You, oh fertile womb of all creation, Madonna, immaculate receptacle, have emptied this vessel. You have prepared this I am to receive the perfection of the Master’s sword. I, no longer am I. I am a waterfall of energy pouring into the world. I am the Eternal Genesis.” …

Immersion in God

How many ways are there to prevent absolute, ultimate immersion into God? Oh my God—evidently there are infinite, immeasurable, unfathomable ways. Sometimes I really wish these human forms came with an owner’s manual, realizing, of course, that the Owner is God. My most recent discovery—death is a deceitful distraction. It makes you believe in it …
