One of my earliest memories as a child was of talking adamantly to someone, prior to coming into this life, and sharing with them that I didn’t want to incarnate into this world. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy for some reason and I knew how people could…
Growth is happening anyway. We can merely delay it not stop it :)
The soil/fertilizer is love and positive regard. As children, this hopefully comes from parents. As adults, we learn to love ourselves. If we get neither love nor regard, it’s no one’s fault. Only our own closed heart…
The spiritual journey involves the heart. We experience
the body, feel the emotions and see the ego for what it is to rediscover
our soul. WHATEVER comes up for us is grist for the mill.
We discover the deeper meaning behind our experiences, although that’s a byproduct of the journey.…
Coming Out of the Spiritual Closet Even More
How does anyone who remembers other “lifetimes” or times “before” human life, who has knowledge of possible other dimensions, etc “fit it” into this world?
My impression is that we don’t. I don’t think it’s possible. Doing so would be like forcing yourself to live in a cage. It’s ridiculous.…
The Path is Lit
When you’re lost in your circumstance and state of your
mind/identity, it might seem as if you need to get somewhere; that you
need to make the right choices and be a certain way.
Despite the seemingly different appearances and forms, there is really
only ever one path. It’s lit…
Alleyways and Fishes
Being in an alley – tolerable and perhaps even beautiful when you’re calm. Less so when you’re stressed out or in need of green spaces.
Our response to external situations is a big clue to what’s going on internally.
Who we truly are is never affected by the external. If…
Are You Connected to Your Inner Wisdom?
I like this quote by Thomas Moore – “We shouldn’t subject our intuitions, synchronicities and dreams to empirical measures because they are about meaning and guidance.”
So many times, we wait for something outside ourselves, some validation to give us direction in our lives. We’ve lost touch with the sense…
Inner Peace = Outer Peace
Inner Being and calm calls to us. It makes possible the perception of peace and beauty outside ourselves.
Parts of us long for connection to the peace of Being. That’s why we’re so
drawn to beauty outside ourselves… it’s reminiscent of the even
greater peace available to us within.If we…
When We’re Hungry for Something
When we settle for breadcrumbs in life, we settle for a life of hunger. Longing, lack and starvation becomes the norm; further limiting our belief in what we deserve, our perception of possibilities and, ultimately, what we actually get. The starvation can be almost imperceptible… but what we feel is…
On Perception (of a Rock)
How did you feel when you looked at this rock? I found it on
a shore. Is it a volcanic rock? Is it a fossilized turd? Beautiful,
weird or meh? I thought it was volcanic but then comparing it to the
rocks behind made me think again.I don’t really
