The highest good

Everything works toward the highest good for all involved. Always. “I can be inspired to grow, but more often I grow because I have been broken by certain unyielding realities. When I have one again been made aware of my fallibility, I am then predisposed to learn.” ~Hugh Prather~ We humans operate with limited perception. […]

Balance

When difficulties arise, the mind immediately wants to believe that something in our lives is wrong. “Illness is one more path to becoming whole.”          ~Ezra Bayda~ Every experience is meant to bring you closer to enlightenment. Imbalance – which can lead to illness, financial struggle, feelings of loss, relationship challenges or discontentment – helps us […]

A higher perspective

Something magical happens when we look at life from a higher perspective. “Spirituality is not the practicing of any virtue; spirituality is the gaining of a new vision. Virtue follows that vision; it comes on its own accord. It is a natural by-product. When you start seeing, things start changing.”            ~Osho~ The path of the […]

Enlightenment and acceptance

You are a living expression of the Divine. Everything is available for you to explore. “When we require that people be different, we block the possibility of real connection with them.”~Ezra Bayda~ Life provides opportunities to discover the value of contrast. In the highs and lows of experience, we become more nuanced and well-rounded. These […]

Accelerated spiritual growth

The key to accelerated spiritual growth is to never stop seeking to learn. “Notice how often thinking and talking are detours from the painful work of being present to life.”         ~Ezra Bayda~ Don’t become complacent, there is always something new waiting to be discovered. Choose to experience life with the innocence and wonder of a […]

The strength of surrender

When you really pay attention, everything is your teacher. “When we bring a gentle awareness to the layers of our conditioning, and to the struggles that arise out of our conditioning, the power of that conditioning slowly dissolves. Life then moves toward the unconditioned – where the vastness, or love, just flows through.”     ~Ezra Bayda~ […]

The addiction of blaming

Mastery is taking complete responsibility for your own experiences. “Blaming is an addiction. Justifying ourselves can keep us lost in our stories for hours, days, and even years. Blaming puts the focus on the perceived faults of the other and lets us evade the necessity of directing our attention inward. Blame always separates, always disconnects. […]

I Am

What do you choose to say after the words, “I Am?” “One thing is certain: Existence is overflowing. With everything it is luxurious. Poverty is man’s creation.”                       ~Osho~ Our words are powerful. Say something often enough and it becomes a core belief to which we subconsciously manage our lives. We then see that supposed […]

Embrace your role

When you choose to live your truth, trust your intuition and embrace your role, life unfolds perfectly. “The choices of role determine the nature of experience and perception, the part which the soul will play throughout it’s cycle.” ~from Michael – The Basic Teachings~ When we choose this planet as a playground, we select a […]

Illumination is eternal

There is always something new to learn. “Spirituality is not the practicing of any virtue; spirituality is the gaining of a new vision. Virtue follows that vision; it comes on its own accord. It is a natural by-product. When you start seeing, things start changing.” ~Osho~ To be fully present is to see the sacredness […]
