Transforming suffering into consciousness

Suffering has no value unless it is conscious suffering. “Sometimes when our emotions are particularly intense, nothing we’ve learned from spiritual practice seems relevant. Isn’t it when we become lost in our darkest emotions that we disconnect from the heart and judge ourselves most harshly? In these darkest moments, use the breath as a conduit […]

Love is the goal

See yourself as a lifetime student of Love. “I create my own experiences. As I love and approve of myself and others, my life gets better and better.” ~Louise Hay~ Life presents endless opportunities to love. Sometimes it comes through challenge and contrast, sometimes with passion, others with laughter, ease and grace. Our mission is […]

Chaos always precedes tremendous growth

Your purpose is to awaken. “Spiritual work is possible in one place alone: here, in exactly what you are experiencing right now.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Every once in a while we can become complacent. Things are going well, life is peaceful, and we relax a bit. These are the moments to go deeper into your spiritual […]

Open mind, open heart

Choose to experience life with openness rather than expectation. “Looking with a mind that’s awake reveals the shimmering pulse of life. Looking with a mind full of thoughts reveals only your thoughts.” ~Ezra Bayda~ We are on an amazing journey of discovery and awakening. In an infinite Universe, no matter how much we have learned, […]

Mindful communication

What type of energy are you adding to our collective experience? “The heart that seeks to awaken, to live genuinely, is more real than anything. That nameless drive calls you to be who you must truly are.” ~Ezra Bayda~ The ego loves to hear itself talk. Without realizing it, many simply give it free rein […]

Transforming Impatience

All fear patterns can be transformed into personal power. “Patience is very alert, patience is very active, patience is very expectant.” ~Osho~ Impatience is a by-product of our society, a mental construct that says there’s not enough time, I may miss out. It is created by an overactive mind and blocks all enjoyment of the […]

It’s time to realize who you truly are

You are much, much more than your past, your struggles, your accomplishments or your dreams. “You are awareness. It is nothing you do, it is nothing that has to be done – your very nature is awareness.” ~Osho~ Your souls purpose is to awaken. The path you travel has one purpose – to facilitate your […]

Love with patience

Let your life be your message. “Almost all of our difficulties in relationships come from wanting people to be different than they are.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Everyone experiences “aha moments” where a piece of wisdom or insight falls into place. As our perception shifts just a little bit, new realizations occur. Patterns become clear and we […]

There is always something new to discover

Accept yourself as you are – a magnificent work of art in progress. “We taste the profundity of existence by simultaneously holding both the suffering and the wonder of being alive.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Awakening is a continuous journey. As we master one aspect of awareness and enlightenment, a new level makes itself known. We should […]


When we recognize the origins of our fears, embrace them and bring them into the light, they are transformed into empowerment. “Rooted in the moment, we have the capacity to restore balance and happiness and be present with what is beautiful and affirming inside us and around us, every day.” ~From Fear, by Thich Nhat […]
