Inner wisdom

The energy of the vast, infinite universe lives within you. “You have to create your own path to your own temple. No help is possible, and it is the grandeur of humanity, a tremendous dignity, that you can follow only your own path.”  ~Osho~  Christ suggested that we be in the world, but not of […]

You are a masterpiece

Within you, there are infinite treasures that await discovery. “You don’t have to try so hard… you don’t have to change a thing.”  ~Colbie Caillat~    Every soul is precious and unique. When you recognize and respond to positive characteristics in others, realize that you have those same qualities within you. Everything you experience is […]

Be an inspiration

Your presence is transformative. “It is always worth considering, ‘Am I blissful the way I am living?’ If one is not then one must take risks. New paths, new lifestyles, a new search will have to be undertaken. This much is certain: you have nothing to lose.”  ~Osho~  Love, joy and enthusiasm are contagious. They […]

Everything is energy

Awareness is the first step of transformation. “The ability to [consciously] respond is one of the greatest principles of growth. You are not following any order, any commandment; you are simply following your awareness.”  ~Osho~ Spirituality is not about adhering to rules and following “shoulds” that someone else has created. The awakening spirit learns to […]

Love

Love allows you to discover who you are in the presence of another. “Contrary to the romantic fantasies we have about relationships, in actuality they often push us directly into our blind longings, our dark fears, and our unhealed pain.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Being at peace in the present moment comes from being One with what […]

Exploring the limitless

All that you seek is within you. “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~  Once we […]

Peace begins within

The greatest gift that you can give is non-reactivity. “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”   ~Rumi~    It has been said that we must be the change we wish to see. Each of us is a microcosm of our collective […]

Resistance

Reactivity and resistance are pretty good indicators that we have work to do. “Resistance is a conditioned response of the ego; it’s the ego’s effort to maintain control, the ego’s fear of giving up the known. Often our resistance prevents us from staying in the present moment for more than a few seconds. We resist […]

Give up labels

Let go of self-definition. “When you let go of the belief that you should or need to know who you are, what happens to confusion? Suddenly it is gone. When you fully accept that you don’t know, you actually enter a state of peace and clarity that is closer to who you truly are than […]

Your journey is unique

Your story is still being written. “Just let it go” is more a philosophy than an option. If it were possible to “just let it go,” we’d all know freedom right now. Often our only real choice is to just let it be.  ~Ezra Bayda~  We arranged this lifetime by selecting the perfect parents, place […]
