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. …

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 …

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 …

The Womb of Cooperation

“Then will they know the vision I saw when I said, Many shall seek to enter in and shall not, for straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to eternal life. For, without the true appreciation of the Christ Ideal and of the divine and perfect plan of the cooperation of …

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. …

Waking Up

Phil: “What if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t today.” If you haven’t watched the movie Groundhog Day in a while, do. So many lines will simply roll you over in laughter and leave you breathless on the floor. What year did the movie come out? 1993. Who was I then? I saw it. I …
