The highest good

Your purpose is to awaken. “Good fortune is arbitrary, and certainly nothing we can rely on – yet we still cling to the belief that it’s our right that things always go our way.” ~Ezra Bayda~ I often use the term highest good when seeking clarity regarding life situations. Most people assume that highest good […]

Be a light in the darkness

As you awaken, the world around you is transformed. “Using whatever skills you have, whatever you have learned from you own life experience, it is time to express yourself.” ~Osho~ You do not have to be angry to create a movement of change in your experience. Empowerment comes from offering the gift of understanding to […]

Healthy relationships

Be grateful to those who grace your life with their presence. “Spiritual practice is about increasingly entering into love – not personal love, but the love that is the nature of our being.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Every person that enters your life plays a unique role in your awakening; therefore, honor their spirit by learning from […]

All that you seek is within you

Do you see yourself as a miracle? “Existence is enough unto itself. Inquire into your relationship with existence, and out of that inquiry trust arises – not belief, not faith. Trust has a beauty because it is your experience. Trust will help you to relax because the whole existence is taking care – there is […]

Your unique gifts

You have something unique to offer. “Life can only be known through participation. Don’t be a spectator. The whole modern world has become just a spectator, a crowd of lookers-on. The spectator is the poorest man in the world. Participate.” ~Osho~ Is your life a celebration or a sadness? Are you living or waiting? It’s […]

Releasing blame

Each of us is responsible for our own joy. “Real joy is often just a quiet presence in the moment.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Empowerment is about taking responsibility for whatever unfolds in our experience. Everything is a reflection of our inner state of consciousness; therefore, it’s important to pay attention to what we create. Without judgment, […]

Live with a sense of wonder

Step into this moment. Breathe. Be open to life. “Being truly present allows us to appreciate the sweetness of the moment even when the moment isn’t conventionally sweet, because, at least momentarily, we’re not under the sway of the heaviness of our beliefs. The results are a lightness of being, and a sense of inner […]

The measure of success

All that you see is a reflection of your own state of consciousness. “Contentment alone is enough. Indeed the bliss of eternity can be found in your contentment.” ~Lao Tzu~ Success is measured by the amount of peace we experience. If you feel that anything is missing in your life, shift your thoughts around that […]

Soul expressed love

As long as there is one person you can’t forgive, there is work to be done. “Real love comes not from trying to solve our neediness by depending on another, but by developing our own inner richness and maturity.” ~Osho~ Allow yourself to be receptive and open to the infinite joy of the Universe. Quieting […]

The process of enlightenment

Enlightenment is taking responsibility for your own experience. “Expecting an epiphany – some single moment of insight that will forever banish the experience of fear, anger, neediness – may prevent us from noticing the slow and almost imperceptible ways spiritual practice subtly transforms us. With patience and perseverance, our habitual reactive patterns slowly erode, until […]
