Seeing Through the Pretense Facade

“Enlightenment is a destructive process.It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.”   – Adyashanti While we tend to think of ENLIGHTENMENT as the ultimate consciousness attainment level,Continue reading “Seeing Through the Pretense Facade”

The Intricate Design of LIFE

From Facebook: Tao & Zen “The basic laws of the Universe are simple, but because our senses are limited, we can’t grasp them. There is a pattern in creation.” ~Albert Einstein “See simplicity in the complicated. Seek greatness in small things. In the Universe, the difficult things are done as if they were easy.” ~LaoContinue reading “The Intricate Design of LIFE”

The Comfort of ‘BELIEFS’

Beliefs, like relationships, are very complicated things. Many people experience a degree of comfort in ‘shared beliefs.’  Some may even feel a sense of belonging to a recognized and accepted group norm often found in religious or cultural beliefs—where they may feel the welcoming support of their fellow members—welcoming, that is, as long as theyContinue reading “The Comfort of ‘BELIEFS’”

The Wounded-Child Within

Love that picture above.   It expresses so clearly our inner need for closeness without all these additional words that I will soon add here. It shows our need to reach out to others and to be recognized and ACCEPTED by others—to truly be seen as a ‘being of substance’ within the structural framework ofContinue reading “The Wounded-Child Within”

Explaining the Five Planes of the Upper World

I had recently read Alberto Villoldo’s blog posts on the five planes of the Upper World, and thought I could recognize some aspects that I personally had witnessed during my own Shamanic Journeying or had unexpectedly “seen” for myself during sudden glimpses of planes of existence beyond on our own. Villoldo’s 1st and 2nd planeContinue reading “Explaining the Five Planes of the Upper World”

Surface Tension

A water droplet maintains its spherical containment area due to something called “surface tension,” which roughly means that the elastic quality of the outer membrane-like surface of the droplet is dependent on external pressure inward versus internal pressure outward, plus the tendency of water molecules to prefer each other’s company over the company of theContinue reading “Surface Tension”

Un-Becoming, Just To Be YOU

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”       ~ Paul Coelho Had I not just heard this same thing a day ago during a phone call with a close friend, IContinue reading “Un-Becoming, Just To Be YOU”

When Life Is Disrupted

This time we are in right now—this total disruption of our previous intentions and of our plans made for the current year and maybe even for the next—times when we were naively hiking up that rugged mountain path and it suddenly crumbled beneath our feet sending us into free-fall down toward the valley below; yes,Continue reading “When Life Is Disrupted”

Our Karmic History Per Alberto Villoldo

Interesting find this morning on Facebook: Alberto Villoldo briefly discusses Karma and the human energy-field cocoon or as he calls it “the luminous egg”—how at death, our seven individual body-chakra energy centers upload all energy information into the eighth chakra (above our heads) that represents ‘our Spirit container‘ for this lifetime. He talks about howContinue reading “Our Karmic History Per Alberto Villoldo”

But HOW Does It Work?

Every aspect of our shared LIFE experience incites insatiable curiosity in me. About 25-years ago, I joined what was then called “One Spirit Book Club” where you could purchase a monthly book of choice. One book caught my attention. It was about a Japanese energy/spiritual practice called “REIKI”.  The promo said, “Learn the ancient hands-onContinue reading “But HOW Does It Work?”
