The Illuminating Show

The way your world looks on the outside does not, cannot define how spiritual you are, cannot demonstrate your level of understanding or the degree to which enlightenment has seeped into your very being, It doesn’t matter what the outside looks like. It is only a false factor, a concocted check box for those still …

As You Are

To be fully you, do you need self-acceptance? Seems logical, doesn’t it? After all, how could you be fully you while wanting to be someone or something else: taller, shorter, thinner, more muscular or richer, smarter, loved by the right one or any of the other things we humans want? That’s how the story goes …

Let’s Talk About Love

Let’s talk about love. Love may just be one of the most misunderstood words ever. What passes for love, is misunderstood, underestimated, personalized, reified, compartmentalized and often exploited. Love for most, is transactional. If you give me what I want and need, I will love you. If you don’t, I won’t. It’s a love that …

Fingers Pointing to the Moon

Nothing I say will get you there. There is no there; no you to get there and yet as in all of life, there is the very valid, exceedingly real, preciously potent appearance of a there and a you and the you who appears to be, appears to want to get to the appearance of …

You!

Underneath belief lies fear: every belief, beliefs in religion, beliefs in science, beliefs in humans. Beliefs — this is true — hide fear. Every. Single. One. It’s the reason humans go to war. They are at war within themselves. The inner sense of absolute power, genius and presence is at war with the outer sense …

The Stuffing Inside

It doesn’t sound so easy to stop and ‘be you’ when all you want is a different you, a different experience than the one that has you in its crosshairs. Honestly, and said without even the tiniest bit of judgment, it may not be possible to quit running, to stop listening to the chatter inside …

Ride!

Last night I watched “The Last Samurai” … again. It is one of my favorite movies. I seem to never tire of it and its shower of lessons. I love the script, the way the story tells of honor, of devoting oneself to perfection in all you pursue, of looking for and finding perfection in …

Can You?

Can you simply be here, now? Can you flow with whatever appears? The ability to be with whatever appears, regardless of what the whatever is, without need want or desire to run or hide is a pretty simple description of behavior after awakening. That ability is natural to one who has seen through the game, …

Play Ball … or not

It’s common to see awareness and the witness as one and the same. The witness is subjective and cannot be awareness, cannot be consciousness which is beyond subject or object. Even though witnessing is not the holy grail, it is still an important step out of identification, a movement beyond the normal way most human’s …

Living It

“The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve, but a reality to experience, a process that cannot be understood by stopping it. We must move with the flow of the process. We must join it. We must float with it.” Dune 2021 Do you feel the need to understand the Universe and your part …

The Ledge

If I could share how to be happy in the most simple terms what words would I use? Happiness, that’s really what we all want regardless of the forms we think it takes. The drive is always the search for happiness, not gleeful off the charts, unnatural happiness but gentle peaceful contentment and joy. The …

The Garden

i is the body of God, the body of the great I Am. Everything that can be perceived is the invisible made visible, the body of God. There is nothing in the perceived world that is not the body of God, made of God, because God — Consciousness — is all there is. Life in …

Pot o’ Gold

It’s all the path. No one holds a key to the mystery. There are no sages, no enlightened ones, no students, no beings stuck in ignorance. In truth, there is no one here. Well, not true gol darn these words. God, for lack of a better word, is here, in form. Not exactly no one, …

Absolutely Anything

Honestly, I don’t care if we are evolving past the third dimension. I’m not even concerned if Rome burns. I can’t buy into the fear or the hope for a brand new world, one that we’ll like better even if it is all about love. Sounds a little like a new age version of the …

You KNOW What You Are!

It’s not gonna work. No matter what you do, regardless of how rigorously you train your mind, it will never give you what you seek. Can you see that all your doing has an agenda? Are you willing to grasp that everything you are trying to control is actually brilliantly showing you something infinitely incredible? …
