Where is Your path to Nirvana? Follow the Yellow Brick Road A nuclear ka-boom. Where is your path to the promised land? Where will you find what you are looking for? Where will you be when you “get there?” We all have a “normal” of sorts. Even if it is uncomfortable. Perhaps, within our own normal, we have chronic pain. Or an emotional tempest within us. But if you wipe off the descriptions of what your normal feels like … there is a baseline of sorts. A “density” of sorts. A “viscosity” of sorts. But what about the ka-boom? There is so much power in the nuclear arena. A softball size of nuclear material has a tremendous amount of energy or power. So, imagine with me a bit. When that power is released, it e-x-p-a-n-d-s very rapidly. And then eventually normalizes itself. So, let’s reverse that process. Let’s take a…

When the Levee breaks … We need change to fix the “normal” If normal means more of the same … Perhaps, the opposite of “normal” … is change. The winds of change are blowing. There is a lot of news and information that I watch, that I never comment on. I have worked in Broadcast TV a long time. I did the math the other day … I started in TV 40 years ago. Broadcast TV fell into the proverbial chasm a long time ago. The wheels fell off. The cart tipped over. And it only got worse. Our collective “narrative” will be changing quite a bit over the next months and years. There is so much critical information about what has been happening, over the last many decades and even longer, that has never seen the light of day. When that levee of information breaks … You chose to be here now. Your…

Filling the Void What will go in its place? Do you remember a wonderful time in your life? Perhaps it was a wonderful past relationship? Or maybe a challenging job that you loved? And then something changed. There was a loss of sorts. Where that wonderful situation ended. For whatever reason. Leaving a void in its place. Like how the 2020 karmic tsunami changed everything. We might have been living high on the hog in 2019 … but then something happened. We can have a longing to return to that time, that circumstance, that was so nice. We can have a longing within us for a repeat performance. I want THAT again. But Nature, by its very nature, doesn’t copy itself. At least, not on purpose. There is nothing wrong to want whatever you want. But we can come up short, not because of what has happened, but how we…

Don’t run with scissors … throw them … overhand Life is a daring adventure There is an inherent part of consciousness that wants to express. Over and over. Just look at nature. Never really done creating new expressions. The many types of flowers and their beautiful blossoms. Or all the creatures in the seas. Then there is … you. As an aspect of nature, you have an inherent part of you that wants to express … more. Sometimes we don’t really feel very fulfilled. We can get into a bit of a rut. Certainly, the last couple of years has had many people kind of stop their normal life and go into a holding pattern. There is so much change going on in the world outside of you. But there is a part of you, on the inside, that is not worried. The truth of you cannot be touched by…

Riding the Escalator to Nirvana Everything you seek … is within you now There is a shift that happens. That can change everything about how you live your life. On one hand, we can live in our heads. Where our ego is driving the boat. This is an extremely common modality. I have certainly spent many years there. But there is another way to live. One that changes everything. And that is living from the inside out. Where you tune in to the inspiration of your heart and soul. There is a curious thing that happens. At first, it doesn’t seem like much. I feel that the reason it doesn’t really “satisfy” the ego so much, is that we are barely making ourselves available. Where our ego isn’t really fully committed to the inspirations. But rather, has an attitude of .. we could try it once. The vision of what our life could be, is but…

Look again … with fresh eyes Both light and shadow are the dance of Love. ~ Rumi As you evolve your consciousness, you can re-evaluate your past. There is something about the vibration, or frequency, of your consciousness, that literally acts like a lens, a karma lens perhaps, that filters what you see. In other words, on first observation, it might seem that angry people are just plain mean. And from an experiential perspective, they can seem that way. A “truth” of sorts. But evolve yourself, and then look again, and there is a whole other story to tell.My father was a very intense man. He had a fire for God anchored in his core. When he spoke of God, he would well up in tears. He had a very fierce faith. He easily made the top local church officials look like slackers. The church officials never welled up with…

“Normal” means more of the same “Normal” will not fix anything Happy New Year!We have arrived at 2022!Are you wanting change for your life? Are you wanting something new in your life?So, whether we are talking about our own personal problems, or we are talking about the problems with our collective consciousness, “normal” will not be fixing anything.I am very thankful for my life path. Specifically, that I was born the last of seven children. By the time the seventh child, me, came along, my folks were on cruise control with the kids. I remember my parents asking my siblings, “does anyone see Les?” If any of my siblings said yes, that was it. They never asked what I was actually doing. Which meant I could really do whatever I wanted. And nobody cared what I thought either. I was the proverbial caboose. I had extreme freedom, growing up as a child, to think whatever I wanted…

What would your Higher Self do? You CAN live your life entirely from your ego… So … what’s it going to be? Not to force or push, but rather, for better clarity. Our egos can have no problem consuming us. Where the vast majority of our consciousness is “consumed” by our egos. In other words, if we were to imagine the endless stream of consciousness that our Soul streams to us, through us, as us, as some type of measurable “fuel.” Well, perhaps our ego easily consumes all of it. And that is that. More of the same. You could predict who you were in the future, 10 years, 20 years or even farther out, because the likelihood of you actually having real lasting change show up, would be minimal. There is a notion of living that isn’t that common. And that is to … make waves. Make change. Not…

The Beginning is Near So what’s it going to be? We are experiencing a bit of the Phoenix metaphor. Rising from the proverbial ashes. The “normal” of our lives, that perhaps we last experienced in 2019, is gone. The new normal hasn’t “landed” yet. Sure, certainly the dust hasn’t settled yet. But that is a good thing. At least as it relates to where we land. In other words, with the old “normal” off the table, we get to choose a new “normal.” You could, perhaps, ask yourself … was your life in 2019 in balance? Did it support and nurture you? Did it have a place for growth? Were you evolving? Honoring the innate desire for expansion? Nature is always seeking to express itself in new ways. You are that nature, expressing itself. What would you like to be different? If you were to look at your life in…

Swept Away in the Karmic Current Where did you go? There is a bit of dichotomy when it comes to karma. On one hand, you could easily think of karma as density. Or, perhaps, viscosity. If we think of the density aspect, we could see those who have loaded up their psyche with karma, as having a very dense energy. They are “heavy” with karma and thus it is very difficult to move (change) where they are. Or perhaps, the viscosity aspect could be thought of as standing in an empty swimming pool. Say, perhaps, the goal is to just walk 20 feet. If the pool is empty, it is an effortless success. Then by adding water (karma) up to the waist, well then, the effort is greater. Then again, imagine the water up to your neck. Perhaps much more energy is needed. But then, let’s even change the viscosity,…
