The Great Reboot

If you are fortunate to not be packed up and ready to evacuate you probably haven’t had to decide what you would take and what you would leave behind. I’ve wandered around the house today wondering what I would leave to the fates, what dear treasures I would tuck into my bag as I walked …

Surrender

What are your thoughts on death? Do you believe you aren’t afraid of death? It’s common to hear people say they aren’t, but are they really immune? Are they truly okay with taking their last breath, with leaving everyone they love behind? Are you? We are living through demanding times. People are stressed beyond their …

Here, Here!

Just when you think it’s safe to get back in the water! What a life this is, a universe intent on stripping away every last flake of ego, ego that can not be seen until it is in the process of being stripped and even then it’s so slippery, like a slinky slipping around a …

No Escape

There is no escape. That is not the purpose of playground earth. We can destroy this planet and still not escape. That idea is at the core of climate shift — a desire to end it all, to watch it burn. Whatever tack we take, whatever way we attempt to destroy ourselves, consciousness will always …

Today I Forgave a Tree

Today I forgave a tree. I know that sounds silly, but for me it was a bit of grace.   Back in January as I was coming up the steep hill out of the woods where I walk my heart went into v-tach, one of the worst episodes I experienced throughout my 11 months of …

Sync or Sim

Is it sync or sim? Are we living in a time of increasing synchronicities, noticing more and more simultaneity each day, or have we actually been living in a simulation all along? Do you have control over anything, even your own thoughts? Thoughts come and go — they appear on their own and leave when …

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

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 …

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 …

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 …

Reflection of Inner Resonance

Life is the reflection of our inner resonance, although it’s doesn’t work the way the mind would guess. Your resonance creates your world, but only to a small degree. More accurate, our resonance creates the vibratory field that is our world. It’s collective, communal, interdependent—a network of resonance that does not simply include, but is …

What is Home if it is not Here?

What happened today? I knew that I was struggling with physical manifestations, deep in the experience of the lack of control I had over my own body. The digestive re-patterning, as my friend Paula called it, a severe understatement. The re-occurrence of the little sores I have battled since the late years of Ken’s illness …

Stillpoint

Today was one of those days. What started as small dust devils dancing and playing near the ground, joined together into a dust storm of epic proportions, a true Sahara Desert haboob. It felt like my body was tied to two horses. One horse pulled me towards desire, the other pulled me away from aversion. …

Hey God! I Said A Playground

Life is. New challenges are around every corner. Two mornings ago I awoke healthy and feeling vividly alive. Within two hours life flip-flopped, leaving this perfect little body with a new version of vision. Two retinal tears opened up in a display of flashing light and a big, solidly dark fishhook shaped impression splintered leaving …

What if it is that simple?

Such a simple truth this is, so simple that it is persistently overlooked, thought to be nonsense. Surely … it can’t be that uncomplicated, so we keep looking, searching for a better, more complicate answer, something that will leave a semblance of control, an inkling of a me. All manifesting creation arises in Consciousness. Consciousness …
