Becoming Someone Else

“When we can’t stop thinking about our problems, our mind and life merge. We become lost in the illusion of the dream. We could call this a ‘rut,’ but it goes much deeper than that. Along with our actions, our attitudes and feelings become repetitive. And we form the habit of being ourselves. To changeContinue reading “Becoming Someone Else”

Riding the Fox

“And, when we grow up we must never forget that hidden, down deep within us is our forever inner child resting, silently forever waiting forever hoping that one day we shall, remember it.” Athey ThompsonSeb McKinnon Art, “The Moon’s Daughter” ***

Kaleidoscopic Reflections

When you think back now on the many different phases of your life, do you ever feel like you are staring one-eyed through an optical tube like a kaleidoscope that shifts the images into mirrored shapes and colors as you turn the shaft one way or the other? Turn it one way and you seeContinue reading “Kaleidoscopic Reflections”

Moving Though It

“We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds –Continue reading “Moving Though It”

Gifts

‘Gifts’ are one of those malleable concepts that may take time for us to personally realize because sometimes they may seem more like curses. At first our natural talents or proclivities may seem intrusive to us or even unwanted, or perhaps on a positive side they seem mystical or surreal in a sense, but notContinue reading “Gifts”

Defining the Self

The previous post was on the “SELF as Master,” meaning that in this context the SELF here was referring to the God-force SELF—the ALLness—the Everything. But even the ‘ego-self’ that most of us struggle to control, is a bit more diverse than saying it means ‘pure ego’ which also has its own range of implications.Continue reading “Defining the Self”

Self as Master

“God, Guru and the Self are identical. A spiritually-minded person thinks that God is all pervading and takes God for their Guru. Later, God brings them in contact with a personal Guru and the person recognizes them as all in all. Lastly the same person is made by the grace of the master to feelContinue reading “Self as Master”

Our Ordinary Lives

“We all have encounters with the sacred; we just have to cultivate the eye that can perceive them. We have to see what’s already here, interwoven with what we claim is human and mundane. We have to take inventory of the magic that conspires to love us in and through our ordinary lives.” ~ MegganContinue reading “Our Ordinary Lives”

Be Soft

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”  Kurt Vonnegut I started to say that I don’t thinkContinue reading “Be Soft”

Trauma Survivors All

As have many before me, I’ve been through personal trauma so I would never minimize anyone’s trauma experience. But when I saw this graphic, I reacted strongly to it—especially the “…We’ve had to fight for our ability to think clearly and know who we are….” For me that is SO true. I think a ‘survivor’Continue reading “Trauma Survivors All”

When Words Fail

What He Said

Alberto Villoldo  “We now know that whatever you vibrate, you create and attract to yourself. So, you work on healing yourself in order to create peace around you. You become peace. If there is conflict living within you, you cannot live in a world of peace. The world mirrors back to you perfectly the conditionContinue reading “What He Said”
