Presence

The US is on the verge of implosion. I have felt it coming for a while now and wondered what implosion would look like. We are collapsing violently inward upon ourselves individually and collectively. Our nation has entered into a dark night, whether it is of the soul is yet to be known. In our …

Who’s to Blame

Last night as I was closing my computer I noticed an article about a mentally ill man who had killed several people. As I clicked shut down and the lights went out I wondered about the man’s actions and what had created a life so sad. In the silence I heard — remaining karma will …

Peace

Days pass with little difference one to the other. Some days include work in the garden, trimming kiwis, or simply sitting on the porch. Some include reading, watching a little television, or writing what comes to be written. Is it Monday or Friday? Some days I don’t know. What’s in a label anyway? Does knowing …

Simply Notice

Do you see how it’s done? Put some stories out there that play on people’s fears and you grow the base — people who were never supporters of the other side are suddenly protesting right alongside the faithful — not for the same reason (anti-vax or anti-something) and yet … the result is the same. …

Fairy Tale

Sitting in meditation last night was akin to being a character in a fairy tale. Meditation was happening without meditator — simply presence presencing … magical enough but that wasn’t the fairy tale. I saw a light, pale at first and then it expanded. From the shadows surrounding the light I could make out a …

Yin-Yang

A few nights ago I was shown a moving image, a divine motion picture. I like many, had struggled with the belief in the power of opposites. I had remnant thoughts about the validity of yin-yang and that each must have power.   When we look towards the manifest world it appears so. A virus …

It’s All Mind

Mind is quite the honey trap. It draws you in, whispering sweet nothings in your ear. Right now we can see its effects pretty darn clearly. People are stuck like ants in nectar, caught in their stories, spinning ways to blame someone, anyone for this universal time out.

Forgiveness

I have fallen into a deep well of peace. Worry seems to have drowned in the fall into the abyss. Forgiveness flows from my heart out into the world like fresh rain gently sprinkling a white desert flower. Gratitude streams effortlessly in the sweet freshness of forgiveness’s cleansing waters. It is possible to be present …

Wonderment

You are always newly born, fashioned from pure potential moment by moment. What makes you smile? What drops you to your knees in awe? Right now I feel that way about you — all the you’s in this astonishingly miraculous world. Tears are flowing down my cheeks and my heart feels like it will burst …

Incognito

One of those ah-ha moments of insight dropped out of the ethers and hit me over the head today. I had heard the words before. I’d even written them. And yet … there I was a puddle of awe bowed humbly to the grace of the unfolding now. I’m not sure I can put this …

Incinerated

People are so afraid to meet their fear, fearing that doing so invites the inevitability. That is not what happens. This, like so many paradoxes in our world, is something quite different. In fact, the exact opposite is true. Unmet fear manifests. …. click the title to read the article

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. …
