Celtic Vows of Friendship

Love is simply discovering who you are in the presence of another. “You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh~ Relationships offer fertile ground for spiritual practice. When in doubt as to the appropriate action or response, utilize the Celtic vows of friendship. Ask yourself, “Am […]

Act with integrity

Honor the present moment as sacred. “Experiencing the deepest connection with life often requires taking a step into unknown territory.”   ~Ezra Bayda~    When pretenses fall away and we stop seeking outside validation, we begin to discover a new level of authenticity. This inner grace and balance is demonstrated by how we choose to […]


How does consciousness expand? By facing spiritual challenges with integrity, love and courage. “To recognize one’s own insanity is, of course, the arising of sanity, the beginning of healing, of transcendence.”   ~Eckhart Tolle~    Spiritual tools are not cultivated unless we are able to utilize them during the course of our day-to-day lives while […]


Don’t wait for life to fall into place before you choose to be joyful. “Live in joy, in love, even among those who hate. Live in joy, in health, even among the afflicted. Live in joy, in peace, even among the troubled. Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, know the sweet joy […]

The paradox of heightened experience

Don’t hold back out of fear. Trust the processes of your awakening. “Spiritual practice is a mixture of struggle and integration, of confusion and clarity, of discouragement and aspiration, of feeling failure and going deeper. Don’t imagine that the spiritual path is a straight line to a fixed goal.”   ~Ezra Bayda~ We must simultaneously […]

The awakening soul has the capability to see things differently and, because of […]

Know your power

Be aware of the energy and expectations that you send out into the world. “In the universe there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which shamans call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.”   ~Carlos Castaneda~ Observe the world around you and you’ll discover […]

Never stop evolving

Learn to see the perfection in the imperfection. “The only virtue worth calling virtue is creativity. When you create does not matter, but it should enhance life, beautify existence, make living more joyous, the song a little more juicy, the love a little more glorious – and the life of a creator starts becoming pert […]

Creating peace within the chaos

Your life experience is a reflection of your inner consciousness. “You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”   ~Eckhart Tolle~  There are moments when life can seem overwhelming. We can get inundated by family intensity, taxes, yard-work or trying to balance […]

Being at ease with the unknown

The ego wants guarantees. The heart wants to explore. “The little self, driven by fear and a craving for comfort, identifies only with ‘me.’ The true self, driven by nothing, identifies with the unbounded awareness that we truly are.”   ~Ezra Bayda~  Transitions call upon us to walk forward in faith. Without attachment, we can […]
