Ruthless passion

No matter how far you have come, remember this. You still have a world of infinite potential to explore. “Intimacy is a totally different dimension. It is allowing the other to come into you, to see you as you see yourself, to allow the other to see you from the inside, to invite somebody to […]

Change

You can create magnificent changes in your experience. “Expecting an epiphany – some single moment of insight that will  forever banish the experience of fear, anger, neediness – may prevent us from noticing the slow and almost imperceptible ways spiritual practice subtly transforms us. With patience and perseverance, our habitual patterns slowly erode, until one […]

Enjoy your humanness

Spirituality is not about rejection or denial of the physical. “Celebration is a thankfulness; it is a prayer out of gratitude. It is recognition of the gift that has been given to us… It is such an immense gift to be alive.”  ~Osho~    Many belief systems preach denial. Abstinence, minimalism or rejection of outsiders […]

How to be happy

Become a pure and open channel and allow the love, light and laughter of the Universe to express itself through you. “To be a happy person, one has to drop all comparison. Drop all these stupid ideas of being superior or inferior. You are neither superior nor inferior. You are simply yourself! There exists no […]

Learning through suffering

Suffering has no value unless we use it consciously. “Inconsolable suffering can console us by making us feel special. But this feeling of specialness diverts us from true freedom.”  ~Ezra Bayda~    The challenges we face prompt us to awaken. Through them we cultivate strength and compassion while discovering new facets of our true potential. […]

See yourself as Presence

When your own wounds are truly healed, you’ll be less reactive to the unconscious behavior of others. “As we relentlessly observe ourselves, the images we have of who we are and who we need to be – which at one time seemed so real – begin to peel away like layers of an onion. Pleasant […]

Be in the world, but not of it

Make a commitment to yourself to be a source of peace and compassion. “Our distress which seems like a very real barrier, is just an artificial prop, which we use to create the story of ‘me’.”  ~Ezra Bayda~  It’s interesting to watch our collective exploration into the dark tunnels of ego and opinion. With every […]

Chaos

The light of awareness transforms all that it shines upon. “The path to love requires open-hearted attention to the very things that seem to block our way to it.”  ~Ezra Bayda~    Transformation – whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual – often takes us into uncharted territory. The chaos of upheaval is intended to shake […]

Life changing moments

We are always be led to the teacher, book or idea that is perfect for our growth. “Nothing is predestined. The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.”  ~Ralph H. Blum~  Be open. Explore new ideas. If a book, workshop, podcast or process has even one sentence or moment […]

Let there be spaces in your togetherness

Choose to bring an unprotected heart to your meeting place. “To love is to recognize yourself in another.”  ~Eckhart Tolle~    Love empowers us to discover who we are in the presence of another. As we release limiting beliefs, heal old emotional wounds and come to realize our own value, we cease seeking outside validation. […]
