Each journey is unique

Let your life be your message. “An ordinary man seeks freedom through enlightenment. An enlightened man expresses freedom through being ordinary.”     ~Adyashanti~    It can be challenging to watch the struggle of someone you love; however, it’s vitally important to allow space while they find their own way to enlightenment. Parent, child, friend, […]

Gratitude

Gratitude transforms any challenge into empowerment. “Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies… those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.”     ~John Milton~ You have the power to transform your life experience, and it begins with the consistent practice of gratitude. First thing in […]

Healing emotional wounds

Life will always provide the perfect situation for your growth. “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~    From time to time even the most advanced spiritual students can get surprised by a […]

The path of transcendence

Your story is still being written. “Ten thousand years from now, your presence will still be felt, your name will still be whispered, and your goodness will still be expanding. And that’s just for the stuff you’ve already done!”    ~ The Universe~    We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Both are equally […]

Emotion

Just a little bit of insight and awareness can transform your entire life. “Experiencing our emotions fully, without wallowing in them or turning away, allows us to break through the layers of protective armor and connect with the heart. Fully felt, our emotions can clear the path to the deep well of compassionate love that […]

Intuition

What you place your focus upon grows stronger in your experience. “We unnecessarily go on seeking advice from the outside when existence is ready to speak to us from the innermost core of our being. It is already there, but we never listen to that still, small voice.”    ~Osho~ Intuition is like a muscle. […]

Subconscious Beliefs

Pay attention to what repeats in your experience. “Spiritual work is possible in one place alone: here, in exactly what you are experiencing right now.”    ~Ezra Bayda~  Repetitive struggles show us where we are stuck. When a challenge repeats, the initial response is “Not again!” or “I knew it!” The ego loves to be […]

Transformative Moments

Change is constantly in motion. Flow with the current. “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”    ~Dalai Lama~  We are engaged in a journey of awakening. Every moment leads us ever onward and though there may be times of struggle or doubt, the most important […]

Billions of ways to grow

There are many paths to enlightenment. Choose one that brings you joy. “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~    Sparks of enlightenment dance all around you. They enter your experience as a flash of insight, […]

The power of acceptance

Judgment blocks our ability to connect with one another. “Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it not against it… this will miraculously transform your whole life.”    ~Eckhart Tolle~    Imagine how much energy you’d have available to utilize if there […]
