Learning to Run When the training wheels comes off When you start to get some traction, walking in step with your heart and soul, you start to notice encounters you have with others, in a different way. You may pray to be a more Loving being, and someone will come along and trigger your unresolved anger. Damn it. I was praying for Love. As you start to listen to your heart and soul more and more as you go about your day, then you start to notice a shift in your cadence. And the direction you are headed. By teaching your ego to just step back a bit, and allow a flow to present itself, then you are in the current. You are flowing in the stream. The villain is also your hero. Only they can push your buttons the deepest, within your psyche. Affording you the sight to heal…

Who will You become? At your current trajectory. If you were to continue to live your life, how you are living it right now, and where would you “end up?” As if there is an end, which I don’t think there is. But to pause for a second and contemplate, “What is possible for your life?” If we look at the BIG You, and bring in your Soul to this idea of You, then what you may become in this lifetime expands beyond comprehension. Your Soul is vast and multi-dimensional. Knowing about next week and next month. But if your Soul is not active in your day-to-day narratives, then it really doesn’t matter. Your ego will run this whole rodeo, until death do you part. You and your ego will separate again. Exactly like the day you were born. You had a Soul, but you didn’t have any ego to…

Let Go of Struggle There is Grace within You now Imagine … if you will … Imagine that you are crossing a wide and swift river. Perhaps about waist deep. And there is a taut rope strung across the swift river. You are holding tightly to the rope as you take step after step. Feeling for a solid footing on the rocky bottom. Each step brings risk, yet again. Over and over. If you get it wrong … yikes. When we have loaded up our psyche with unresolved emotions, beliefs and expectations, we are literally creating a source of turbulence of sorts within us. We are creating an energetic “connection” with the world “out there.” When the world “out there” is triggered with emotional events, emotions of fear, lack, war, famine and dis-ease, we feel it within our own unresolved emotions in our subconscious. We actually project this energetic connection…

Follow the Yellow Brick Road Where ARE you going? You have been born into many different lifetimes. You have learned many lessons. You have always come out intact. At least your Soul has. As you have been born many times, you have also died many times. And here you are. What are you afraid of? Are you living your life? There is a common “dis-ease” that happens here on Earth. Millions, if not billions, of people “suffer” from it. It is called “Ego Overdose.” Is your mind afraid of what might happen to you? Are you posturing with the world “outside” of you? Trying to navigate these precarious times? Buy some land in the middle of nowhere and dig a bunker. Get in it and hide. You will be “safe” there. That is … if “safety” means being karmically comatose. You would have been safer had you just not incarnated.…

Sailing on an Ocean of Peace You are Safe There is a part of you, that has been there from the beginning. You could call it your Innate Self. When we fret and worry, it is never from our Innate Self. Fret and worry are actually in the realm of the ego/mind. Our ego is an engine of sorts. An engine that runs on narratives. These narratives are the general patterns of language that we repeat, day after day. Rigid patterns for most of us. They reflect our beliefs, attitudes and expectations. They create a karmic momentum. A trajectory of sorts. If you think about the literally billions of egos on the planet, and that each one is unique, then your particular situation is no more personal than any other person’s. In other words, we can create anything that we choose. The universe, as a whole, is extremely indifferent and…

Are you In JOY when you think about your Dreams? Let Joy be your rudder … What metaphorical “irons in the fire” do you have? What are you working towards? What are you intending to happen in your life? Les, I’m retired, I’m too busy, I can’t, I have too many demands on my life already. OK, sure. If you say so. It is not for me to judge your choices. Please do whatever you want. But you can judge your choices. Not in a critical way but rather in a bigger picture sort of way. Your Soul came here with a big picture in mind for your life. For myself, I never weighed my life against anything. And sure, that is certainly an option for us all. Live and let live. But once I got cracked open, a curious thing happened. I started getting NEW inspirations. Write a book.…

What makes You Happy? Happy is … what Happy does When was the last time you had a deep belly laugh? What are some activities that you really enjoy? How well do you know yourself? Happiness has no requirements of its own. If you are to put requirements on your happiness, you are limiting your happiness. I will be happy when … I get a job, get married (again), lose some weight, pay off my loan. Happiness doesn’t need any of that. None. Zippo. Nada. You are an eternal Soul having a human experience. Your ego can’t break that. No matter what. You are safe. The Truth of you is untouchable by human intentions. We all have an inner child. We all have a desire to have some fun. OK, perhaps we buried that desire to have some fun. Perhaps a metaphorical storm came through our life a while back,…

Your Freedom is very Important to your “Salvation” Untether Your Potentials … So you are on your Spiritual Journey, eh? Where will that take you? Who will you be when you arrive? There is this “you” reading this now. And there is the “prize” you. The you whom you become after your spiritual journey. And what is the difference between those two (of you)? We accumulate karma over many lifetimes. It takes a long time to load up a human psyche. Sure, horrific events, such as fighting in a war, or being a victim of brutality, can load up a lot of karma in our psyche in a single lifetime. But overall, the human psyche can hold a lot of karma. And here we are. For myself, I have been scrubbing my psyche for 25+ years now. And I Love Love Love how my life keeps elevating itself. Even after…

When the Ego runs out of Gas Who’s driving anyway? Imagine, if you will … that you wake up on top of an old-fashioned stagecoach, with the horses running as fast as they can. You are on a horrible bumpy dirt road. The stagecoach is bouncing all over the road. The road narrows with cliffs on either side. Holy crap! One wrong move … and it’s all over (the cliff). Oh, the peril! Egos like drama … ;- ) So you wake up, thinking that you just might not survive this perilous scene. You grab the reins, and try to bring it all under your control. (Can you see where this (stagecoach) is going? ;- ) When we talk about our spiritual journey, we are talking about the evolution of our own consciousness. At one end of said journey, we are our egos. Flat out. Where there aren’t any thoughts that…

You have your BEST future within you now What is it going to be? … so … what do you want? Can you (at least) start to answer that right away? Do you know what you want? Is it clear to you? If you can, bravo! If you drew a blank, with no real answer, well then, it will be hard to know in which direction to go. Heaven and Hell will both be experienced … today. This day. Heaven might look like the Love flowing out of a firstborn’s parents at the moment of birth. Or the first time a grandparent holds their first grandchild. Or perhaps the love of a parent to (finally ;- ) see their only child married, and thus soon to be finally moving out (humor). And hell? Human trafficking, child trafficking, war, rape and the list goes on and on. So, when you paused…

The Good and the Bad A mirror has no preference Where will you find your ideal life? Is it living in a palace on top of the mountain? Will it be droves of servants awaiting to fulfill your every desire? Or perhaps learning you are the sole recipient to a 5 million-dollar trust? Or would 5 billion be even better? And what of your Heart? To receive “good” into our life can seem like living on the gravy train of sorts. The “good” life. And certainly that is one of the infinite potentials we could choose. And the (quantum) mirror would reflect that back to us. As you wish. But where is the growth? Where is the evolution of your self? Living the high life can seem ideal. But millionaires jump off bridges, to their peril too. With a sense of hopelessness. Even though they can buy anything they can…
