Personal responsibility

A new level of consciousness is waiting to be discovered. “The experience right now – whatever it is – is the doorway to reality. If we try to avoid the mundane or if we seek out the special, we bolt this door.” ~Ezra Bayda~ The only thing over which you have any control is how […]

Be calm in the face of chaos

Stand in your soul’s truth. “When strong emotions arise in the midst of a conflict, it’s generally best to keep quiet, to spend some time in meditation. It’s certainly better to avoid getting hooked into self-justification and blame – which is what is inevitably happens when we open our mouths while gripped by flaring emotion. […]

Living within paradox

You are right where you need to be. “It’s the paradox of the true spiritual path, but the more conscious we become of what limits us, the more limitless becomes our life.” ~Guy Finley~ Don’t try to change, simply be aware… awareness heals. Spiritual practice is often a blend of paradox – confusion and clarity, […]

Nothing is more important than your state of consciousness

Let your life be a dance of awakening. “Joy is spiritual. It is different, totally different from pleasure or happiness. It has nothing to do with the outside, with the other, it is an inner phenomenon.” ~Osho~ It’s imperative to have a healing outlet for intense emotion and the tension that is created when trying […]

Embrace this moment as it is

Choose to see the perfection in the imperfection. “Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place.” ~Rumi~ The awakened heart sees beauty and potential. In a world where many struggle in darkness, we must cultivate the ability to shine the light of consciousness in order to assist with the collective awakening of which we […]

Seeing past the projection

Things are often far different than they appear. “Blaming is a defense against feeling the anxious quiver of our own experiences. When we stop blaming and defending, we’re often left with the one thing we least want: the trembling core of pain that we’ve spent our life trying to avoid. Yet coming face to face […]

Embrace change

Trust the processes of your awakening. “Resistance is a conditioned response of the ego; it’s the ego’s effort to maintain control, the ego’s fear of giving up the known. Often our resistance prevents us from staying in the present moment for more than a few seconds. We resist because we want to avoid feeling the […]

You are a beautiful mystery

You are far more than the role you play in this lifetime. “Life is an adventure. Invite constant adventures, and whenever a call comes from the unknown, listen to it. Risk all and go into the unknown, because this is the only way to live at the maximum.” ~Osho~ You are an infinite being. There […]

Live aligned with your true nature

Your souls purpose is to awaken. “You will take what has been living in the shadows and bring it into the light, where it can be enlisted as an ally. ~Alberto Villoldo~ Don’t wait for your life to be perfect, see the inherent perfection in it as it is right now. You chose to incarnate […]

Seeing from the Universal perspective

This life is the perfect opportunity to learn important Universal lessons. “Ask yourself how a universal perspective can bring a wise and heartfelt response to the difficulty you face.” ~Jack Kornfield~ As we become more conscious we often seek to help others around us to discover the empowerment and joy that we feel. Allow your […]
