Out of Control

When one can see no future, all one can do is the next right thing. Frozen 2 I find this quote fascinating. On the physical level, when standing in the dark with no path in sight, what is left is to take the step, the leap of faith that feels accurate, either that, or crumple …

The Gift of My Heart

These times are filled with anxiety. Many seem to be waiting for the next shoe to drop, and while waiting for something, it usually appears. People are depressed and some are so taxed they are exiting this realm in response. If you want to learn to navigate these ever more challenging days, I am offering …

Awakening

I love Jim Carrey. I think my favorite movie, and this is a hard choice, is The Truman Show. It could be that I just finished watching it again but it feels like it is more than that. When I look at the movie as an analogy for my life here on playground Earth it …

You are the Portal

Jackson County is on alert to evacuate. Medford is a town of 82,000 and there are lots of smaller surrounding towns as well. My heart goes out to all my friends and family in the path of the Glendover fire. It is the same not too far from home. Clackamas County is on alert — …

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 …

Remember

We are conflicted beings, part heart and a lot of mind that is easily twisted. We are a work in progress that is without end. It seems we are human or becoming more so. Human meaning of humanity, kindness and compassion. We are not attending college but a kindergarten, a playground for consciousness to awaken …

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 …

The Split

Okay. It’s official. The earth has split in two and never the twain shall meet. We are witnessing a dimensional shift, only to the eye it looks like nothing’s changed here on this plane of existence. People with totally different realities talk and walk side by side. Their experience of life couldn’t be different. This …

No Mistakes Here

You will do what it is in your consciousness to do as will everyone else. That cannot be stopped, changed or altered. While you might seek isolation, another may attend group events. Whereas you show compassion, another  will only care for himself. The differential is not the people, not good versus evil; it is the …

Consciously Aware

Walking in the woods this morning on my magical mysterious communion with nature I startled myself back into awakeness with the realization that I wasn’t present at all. I was deciding what bushes to prune later in the day. It was intense — that not being present. I was a bit dumbfounded and absolutely curious. …

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. …
