The illusion of control

As we awaken, we learn to trust the processes of life. “What is the path? Residing in this very life, exactly as it is right now… liking or not liking has nothing to do with it.”  ~Ezra Bayda~ As humans, our point of view is very limited. We interpret life through the filters of our […]

Become the light

Enlightenment is not a destination. It is a state of being. “When we begin practice, we are normally so caught up in our separate self – with all of our stories, complaints, entitlements and desires – that we can rarely get in touch with the love or appreciation that reflect our true nature. This is […]

The beauty of contrast

Your awareness and attention brings deeper meaning to all you experience. “There is a rhythm in life, a certain beauty which operates by a variation of lights and shadows, happiness alternating with sorrow, content with discontent, distilling in this process of contrast a sense of satisfaction, of richness that can be captured and pinned down […]

A change in consciousness

Celebrate the small, new beginnings and breakthroughs in your experience. “My new world is a reflection of me new thinking. It is a joy and a delight to plant new seeds, for I know these seeds will become my new experiences. All is well in my world.”  ~Louise Hay~ Most people do not experience a […]

Interconnectedness

Separation is an illusion. Our physical world utilizes the illusion of separation to facilitate the exploration of Oneness. This paradoxical experience will ultimately help us to discover that we all share very common struggles, fears, joys, expansion and compassion. Some people are lost in their perceived boundaries of race, beliefs, political views, sexuality, gender, etc. […]

How high can you go?

Our level of consciousness determines how we interpret and respond to life. “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”  ~Albert Einstein~ In the midst of a challenge, it can be interesting to observe how conscious we remain. When the ego takes charge, our reactions will typically reflect the […]

A call for love

Love resides at the core of all that we experience. We are called upon to view everyone we meet as a teacher. When we bring openness and humility to our interactions, something new emerges. Rather than seeing some as broken, wounded or evil, see them as absolutely necessary for your souls growth. How can you […]

Life is an adventure

Every moment is an opportunity to awaken. “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 can live life from the deeper sense of self rather […]

The gift of acceptance

Be the change you wish to see. “Just a little bit of understanding can bring a tremendous revolution in your life. All seeds are small – the trees may grow high, almost touching the stars, but the seeds are very small. This is just a seed that has fallen into your heart; now allow it […]

The Hive Mind

Seek to disengage from harmful, collective thought patterns. Self-realization is the ability to discover, in yourself, the ability to be present. We currently live in an outrage culture. It seems that there is always a group ready to be offended and angry; however, one does not need to be angry in order to create positive […]
