What are You waiting for? What? Are we there yet? There is the notion that a goldfish will grow to match the container in which it is kept. Keep a small goldfish in a small bowl, and it will stay small. Move it to a bigger bowl, and it will grow in size accordingly. Our egos can behave the same way. Is your ego enjoying your life? Is your heart enjoying your ego? So many of us are drowning in the mundane. We have rationalized ourselves into an unfulfilling life. Our life in our fast brain, has no real room for the desires of our heart. Our ego, from moment to moment, categorizes all that is happening to us. Putting everything in its “appropriate” box. Our egos are symbol processors. Our egos process symbols. Symbols. Symbols are not anyTHING, really. Symbols are … well, symbols, that represent something else. Write…

Out with the Old … In with the New Shifting into the New Year The winds of change are upon us. Nobody has to be told that the world is changing. Humanity is going  though more change(s) than perhaps any time in our history. And here we are. So, what’s it going to be? There is a bit of an opportunity here. If, metaphorically, everything has been turned on its head, then you too can completely redesign yourself. (You always can.) But the notion I want to look at closer is your authentic preferences. You really didn’t have an ego, to speak of, the day you were born. No sentencing, no preferences, per se. And it was in your family of origin that your ego was created. Your ego, by its very nature, is a creature of habits or patterns. You could say we installed a groundwork of habits and…

To Live a Rewarding Life You are more than you might know Nature is never finished. Always ready for another (new) expression. You are that nature personified. So … imagine if you will … that you (your ego) makes a list of what you would like to do and your Soul makes a list of what it might like to do. Are those two lists the same? Just pause for a moment and ask yourself that question. What answer(s) do you get? Unless your parents where totally tuned in to their own souls’ inspirations, you were imprinted with a rather shut down trajectory for your life. It is quite the norm, really. People settle into a rather constant and unchanging narrative for their life. But at our essence, we desire a rich and full engagement of all that life has to offer. I say this because I spent the first…

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…

What ARE you looking for? … to get clear about what you REALLY want. What is it that you want? Do you feel like there is a “better” place/feeling/condition/relationship for you? There is such a busy world “out there.” So many things that compete for our attention. Our egos can get in a mode, where we are just looking for the better feeling … and soon. I notice it at the grocery store. When folks hurry over to the checkout station that just opened up. There is this underlying feeling that hurry is going to get us where we “really” want to be. You can see it in traffic too. Perhaps any time we are in a situation where we are waiting in some form of line. … take a break. Just stand down and relax. Take three long deep breaths … and relax. There is an ocean of peace…

The Many Flavors of Heaven You are here to BE you So what will heaven look like? What are the dreams of our ancestors? Where are we going as a human race? In the same way that God, with a big G, will not descend from the heavens and directly change humanity … God, with a big G, will not be the one experiencing heaven. You will. Of course, we could say, that God with a big G, IS heaven. O.K. Sure… But if we were to embody the Divine, to the point of (re)turning ourselves into pure Light, there would be no “me.” There was a moment in my life, where my Soul took me to “heaven.” It was a very profound experience. Very hard to describe in words. But the gist of it was going to that place within us, where our Divinity is present. So imagine taking all…

Passion Play The feeling of passions expressed Passion. Bring it! Allow it. Immerse into it. Surrender to it. Passion, in and of itself, is the flow of “Soul” energy out through your body. Transcending your ego. Your sense of self. To cultivate what you are authentically passionate about, is to expand the portal of your own Soul. So many people on this planet are … the walking dead. Not really engaged in their life at all. Surrendered to a very repetitive pattern in their life. Wake up. Go to work. Come home and crash. And then do it all again. Not even a glimpse of passionate expression in their everyday life. Karma taking its toll. It is only in uncertainty … that we are naked and alive. ~ Peter Gabriel. I recently started riding motorcycles again. After a 20-year pause. And I must say … it is re-awakening my inner…

Get Your EGO On Board Who is driving your life? You didn’t have an ego when you were born. Yet, through the desires of their egos is how most people navigate life. Your ego can decide, by not letting go, how your life will go. If your ego dominates ALL of your consciousness… Well, it would be easier to get a freight train through the eye of a needle … than for you to discover who you really are. ;- ) And the universe goes on. Time will wait forever. Although the universe has so much love for you, the love of the universe has no conditions. Do you want to descend into hell? Sure thing. Do you want to (re)connect with the Source Consciousness within you now? Sure thing. You will choose everything that you do. Either consciously choosing it, or subconsciously choosing it. Your ego typically has a…

The Divine Idea of You The sweet spot of living your Divine potentials Here we are. Another day on planet Earth. Another day in your life. Another moment of eternity. So … What is the point? Where are we “going?” How will we know when we have arrived? What IS the Divine idea of BEing a human BEing? I find it curious to listen to people as they share what is front and center in their everyday living. For so many of us it is about healing. Or success, or prosperity. Or perhaps Love. And, of course, perhaps countless other arenas of focus. But where does it end? Where ARE we going? What is all this for anyway? Well … You. You are a point of presence of Divinity right now. What do YOU desire right now? What You desire. That might seem like a cop-out. Like the answer is…

Your Dreams are the Seeds for Your Tomorrow The future always exists as energy first. The LAST thing to happen is when the atoms move. The physical effect is the result of what was once only energy. Your consciousness is what can create fresh new energy. You can think of it like a whip. The handle of the whip moves first, and then the tip of the whip always follows the handle of the whip. Creation starts as an inside job. At the core of your consciousness is Divinity itself. All consciousness is holographic. When there is a new desire or a new inspiration … that is the beginning of a physical change. When we get better as creators in our life, it typically comes from moving our attention on the outside, the physical world, and moving our attention inward to the vision itself. Indeed, the ability to HOLD A…

What Do You Desire? Desire is an inside journey What is it that you desire? What would you change about your life? What would it feel like to have your desires fulfilled? There is a curious concept. The notion that God Divine doesn’t have any plan for humanity. That we are on our own. God, the Big Guy, does not interfere with our human preferences. Something about that just seems a little off. I mean, the Big God, doesn’t have any desires for us? Really? It has been shown over countless centuries that man can go as far into the darkness as MAN desires. We can wage war til the end of time. And God does not intervene. At least not as some powerful force that overrides our own free will. We are here for the human experience. HUMAN experience. Flesh and bones. Whether man experiences peace on earth, or…
