Breaking into the Open Karma is not a forever thingy There is a factor to karma, that I think goes overlooked. The curious thing is that we have been through, collectively, such huge karmic events. Events that have touched generation after generation. At a very deep level. If you look at war, for example, PTSD can cripple a person. Devastate them. Crush their ability to function in the world at all. Collapse their ability to process emotions. To the point of either wrestling with the horror of their memories, or perhaps, the opposite end of the spectrum of feeling numb. Or when entire countries go through a deep financial depression. Scarring those people for generations to come. My father went through those days, and he was the co-fabricator of my ego, along with my mother. Teaching me how I would end up thinking. If you are walking around on planet…

Let’s do the Time Warp (again) It’s Just a Jump to the Left … There is a curious thing about a hologram. There is no where to go. And there is no when to go. Well, kind of. Sure, you are “where you are.” When we think of our spiritual “journey,” we are going … going to the promised land. To the Big E (Enlightenment). To Heaven. To Nirvana. Get out the map. In the quantum realm, there is no time. There is no (other) place. It is a singularity of sorts. Your consciousness now, is a single step away from any where else. From any when else. In other words … there is no “place” or “time” to go. Sort of. Sure, you are “here” now. A bit of mental aerobics, really. But the point is, you can tap, or access, all the other points in the hologram from…

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…

Your SuperHero Cape in the Closet The evolution of who you are The curious thing about our spiritual evolution is that is it a returning of sorts. We were once there and now we are on our way back. In other words, we came from being enlightened, into the darkness, or shadow. And now we are on the return. The return to our truth. A return to our enlightenment. It is not that we are not enlightened now, because we are. We are always enlightened. We are always connected to our truth. You might not feel that enlightenment within you now. But it is there. Like a superhero cape tucked in the back of your closet. I find it very curious that Western science tells us that we are only using 10 percent of our brains. And they also tell us that  90 percent of our DNA is junk. As if…

Your Soul seeks growth. To grow. To evolve. Bend and Stretch For myself, I find it most curious that our egos have the final say in what we actually do. Well, at least for a while. There is a static effect when we live in our egos. Where our lives become static, or perhaps stagnant, and not dynamic. Our egos really want to know what is going to be the outcome of our decisions. Perhaps we have been burned before. Or, perhaps, our hearts have been broken. And we don’t want to feel THAT (ever) again. So we become very cautious with all of our decisions. Welcome to, perhaps, the most advanced karmic classroom in the galaxy. Planet Earth. If you can find the Light (of unconditional Love) at the core of your BEing, within this karmic tsunami, well, you just might be a badass angel. It can be challenging for sure. Very challenging.…

My mama (never) told me … What we don’t know might … … my unknowing mind knows so much more than my knowing mind. In other words, we have much more to learn than we know right now. Both individually and collectively. When we are raised in a culture, we are literally programmed by that culture. We are a “blank page” when we are born. As far as what we believe. Because beliefs are the place of the ego/mind. We didn’t have an ego the day we were born. And it was in our cultures of origin, that we were told, by our tribe, what was important and the truth, and what was considered false or perhaps blasphemy. Jesus … Jesus Les! Why do you keep using Him as an example? You are not even religious! ;- ) Because He is an “accepted” belief. I could use Zor, defender of…

Healing our relationship with Love The notion of Love, in a general sense, can bring all sorts of reactions. There are those that cringe at the thought of giving Love another go. There are those that see Love as a romantic relationship. There is an arena of Love, often experienced through the practice of Tantra, that might be thought of as a deep communion with another. And, perhaps, Divine Love. And then there is tough Love. And I am sure many other way to experience Love. But which Love is the real deal? What is the essence of Love? Love has so many faces. Love has so many arenas of expression. If you study the teachings of the Enlightened Ones … you might conclude that Love is actually the fabric of all-that-is. The fabric of the universe itself. That Love itself is Source Consciousness, Prime Creator, or God with a…

Our Family of Origin Where DID we come from? Since none of us existed, well, at least as fully “developed egos” the day we were born … where DID we come from? Where did this “you” reading this … come from? Our family of origin, whatever that dynamic might have looked like, created us. Well, not literally, but yes, quite literally. What I mean is that when we were just babies, we were started on an indoctrination program. It started pretty simple. Learning our first words. Experiencing annual celebrations. Birthdays, religious holidays, national holidays. And the real clincher is that was we were taught the values of each and every symbol, event and belief. And those who taught us, were indeed taught by their families of origin too. Like a baton passed along in a relay race, we have this temporal lineage of sorts. And certainly this lifetime has its…

Healing self. Creating Self. Living an intentional life. Are you bi-polar? Are there two of You? Often when I write (and I do write often) I type the word self in two different ways. self and Self. self: Your ego. The “little” you. The ego that you have created. Self: Your Soul. The Divine consciousness within you now. The “BIG” You. On this planet, at this time, there is a prime objective of sorts. And that is to heal ourselves. Indeed. Yes. Let’s do just that. To heal ourselves is perhaps the most important thing there is for billions of people. In this context, when I say heal, I mean “to become enlightened.” To heal our karma. To end our personal suffering. And certainly this can directly relate to our bodies as well. The dis-ease of our body is a reflection of the dis-ease within our own consciousness. I think…

All For You You are the thing itself When is it all over? When will the stars retreat back to where they came from? When will it all be done? We can put our salvation … out there. We haven’t met God again. We haven’t found Heaven. I mean, the car needs tires. The house isn’t paid for. And then there is the issue of the new aches and pains. How long are you going to wait? When WILL you get there? Where are you going to find the Holy Grail? When will you return to Heaven? After you let your body go? Right now. This now. This NOW. Now is the only time that you can ever experience Heaven. The Heaven that is IN You right now. You are what you are looking for. You are the thing itself. Don’t envy another. Don’t think that someone else has a…

For the Joy of Loving How do you make Love? What are the ingredients? Where do you look to find Love? Love is the root of consciousness itself. More specifically, Unconditional Love. So imagine this… The automotive engineer has been working on a new design. For a new suspension system for a car. She has been dreaming of how well she can make a car hug the road in a sharp turn. How solid could it feel? How tight could it turn and still feel solid? A passionate pursuit of perfection. So imagine this… The race car driver has been looking for ways to do it better. Looking for a way to race at an even higher performance level. Where can the new possibilities be found? What is possible? The car itself is a vehicle. A vehicle of Love. 😉 It is a physical vessel of Love to be carried…
