We are One (Meaning of Life)
I was at gathering of kindred spirits, Easter Sunday, just following the full moon in Libra, in Ubud Bali. We were ecstatically singing the refrain
Shamanic Death and Rebirth
Shamanic Death and Rebirth Death is underrated. The true essence of ourselves never dies. What can die, needs to die for us to truly live.
Many of us feel that when we forgive somebody, we’re doing them a favor. Perhaps they’ve changed, or apologized, or maybe we feel that we made them suffer enough.
The reality is, that the main beneficiary of forgiveness is the forgiver.
Self Realization through Love
Self Realization means shifting your awareness from its entanglement in your mind’s incessant mental story about yourself, to abidance in your true essential Being.
Presence is the Aroma of Being
Being is the Loving Awareness that is your Essential Nature
“Be-Here-Now” mindfulness collects your heart and mind into Oneness
This Oneness, whole and collected, resonates Presence
Presence gravitates your mind to its source in Loving Awareness.
You are that Loving Awareness
Spiritual Word Games
Humans seek emotional security. We want to feel good about ourselves. Deep down, we rarely achieve those good feelings because the “self” we wish to validate is built on a fantasy we have created rather than our true essence. In the struggle to keep our self-image positive, we even distort our spiritual values and beliefs in service of our egos. We play spiritual word games.
Inner Dimensions of Touch
There are many dimensions to touch beyond the physical contact. When we touch someone, life force energy, “Chi” or “Prana”, flows between the touching.
We are all shadowed by shame. We don’t always know it.
Shame makes us tell stories to ourselves that we’re not troubled so we don’t have to face our shame; but, however subconscious, we are ashamed of ourselves and often apologize for our existence.
Healing a Broken Heart
Relationships have a nagging tendency of reflecting our fears, denials, desires, and habit patterns.
All relationships are “perfect” because they mirror ourselves and our relationship to life.
Which is also the problem with them.
As we transform within, we are also inspired and empowered by joining with others who feel a similar communion with the essence of Love and Life. They may not visit our particular church, sweat lodge, or ashram, but we can sense they are kindred spirits in our hearts. We reflect each other’s light to one another. We grow and support each other’s awakening when we come together with open hearts.

Why God Can Never Be Proven
It’s almost a universal question: I don’t believe in a God envisioned as an old man with a white beard in the sky, but I’m open to the existence of a Universal Principle. How can I know? Can you Prove God?

The misunderstanding is that this world is supposed to be fun and enjoyable. This planet is more of a sphere of tough lessons and evolution

Energy Resonates Awareness
Moving our identity out of the inner dialog into presence requires collected energy as well as awareness. Awareness is sterile without energy. When our energy and awareness resonate together, it makes for presence. When presence is strongly resonating as our center, it’s much easier to abide in. The Mind can rest in that, because it is Peace and Love itself.
