Completion

Attachment to depth attracted shallowness,  Attachment to the inner attracted the outer. Preference for emotional and spiritual intimacy attracted mere mental and physical intimacy.  Preference and attachment to anything creates the experience of the contrast and thereby cultivates suffering. Such is the price of choosing to play in duality and separation consciousness. Stepping back,...

Mind, Intuition and Consciousness

But what after all, behind appearances, is this seeming mystery? We can see that it is the Consciousness which had lost itself returning again to itself, emerging out of its giant self-forgetfulness, slowly, painfully, as a Life that is, would be sentient, half-sentient, dimly sentient, wholly sentient and finally struggles to be more than...

Commitment to Love

The moment we choose to love we begin to move against domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. That action is the testimony of love as the practice of freedom. ~ bell hooks, Outlaw Culture My journey...

Contemplations

With so much of the planetary family on fire (Siberia, Amazons) or in extinction by human doing I find myself in deep contemplations about it and my part in it all. Living from a knowing that all is one and having a profound resonance with the Huna belief that what I perceive as a...

On Service

Understanding the real nature of our being and the principles of this Universe leads to many a subtle and powerful shift in our perceptions and knowledge of existence and our role in it. I held an unconscious misunderstanding of what it means to give of ourselves and our gifts to life for most of...

The Hungry Ghosts

We often talk a lot about the things we want, we long for or miss. But it is our actions, choices, visions and thoughts that reflect what we truly choose to go after. Regardless if these things are what we consciously want or not, the circumstances and things we have manifested by our choices (not...

Soul Love

Your partner is a soul, with life lessons to learn and karma to work through. You don’t own your partner. Just because you are in a committed relationship they don’t belong to you. They belong to Life itself. And as much as you are together in a relationship, remember that they also have their...

Oceans and Cliffs

“The waves hit the cliff with more intensity than the shore, because the ocean knows the cliff has that masculine intensity which won’t complain about her feminine energy.” ~ Nityananda Das If I would have seen the above quote years before I would have laughed and asked to see such a man. The only people...
