Our Emotional Struggles are really a Mental problem Our Emotions, themselves, are an impersonal thing One of the things that makes change more of a challenge, can be our emotions. We can get into a stuck repetitive cycle with our emotions. But the emotions themselves are a very natural and indifferent phenomenon. You could think of getting stuck in emotional re-actions, like yelling the same phrase into “echo canyon,” expecting to hear something different. When we find a particular emotion getting stirred up, over and over again, we can think that it is the emotions themselves that are creating the problem. But our emotions are a natural response to our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes bumping up against “reality.” A response is caused by something. When there is a response, it is a result of something else. Just like the echo itself is like a response of the “echo canyon,”…

What would make You feel “Better”? Is there a feeling you are looking for? There is a bit of a back and forth. Once we get (more) focused on what we want. As part of the “awakening” process, you start paying more attention to your thoughts and feelings. You start to discern what you prefer, and what you don’t prefer. You start to “mind.” You start to pay attention to how you feel, doing those things that, perhaps, you have always done. To discover our subconscious habits that we have instilled in ourselves, we need to stretch ourselves. If we always avoid bad feelings, we are actually accumulating the karmic energy behind them. If we don’t ever get to the point of actually feeling them, they are taking more of a proverbial hold on us. It isn’t like we have to feel our bad feeling all the time, like it…

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 Karma isn’t personal. Don’t take it that way. Who are your teachers today? My boss was a malicious, and perhaps even evil, man. And he was my angel. He was, perhaps, one of my most important soul contracts in this lifetime. He put me on a shrink’s couch. He cracked me open. It wasn’t what he did TO me, as much as it was what he stirred up within me. I had a lot of anger in my subconscious. And I had no idea that it was there. None. He would stir that up, my anger, and I would go home every day feeling “upset.” Well, what was “upset?” It was my anger. My anger, had it not been upset over and over again, might have slowly pinched the life out of me. My body was shutting down. I had digestive tract issues for over a decade. And I…

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…

If I do your homework for you … you will never… You chose to come here at this time Imagine, if you will, if you never got past gravity. What I mean is that you never learned how to walk. To stand upright. To run, skip or dance. Gravity didn’t care about the outcome. You could have chosen either way. Karma is a lot like that too. The principles of karma are timeless. Timeless and impersonal. Just think about it … there are over seven billion variations of karma playing out on the planet right now. Seven billion people, each with their own unique karmic disposition. And karma, as a whole, doesn’t care how any of it turns out. Karma, by its very nature, has a momentum to it. A propensity, if you will. A probability that a particular type of outcome will play out. You might think of karma…

Emotional Freedom The (re) integration of your subconscious So … what’s in your sub-conscious? The very notion of “sub-conscious” is that we are not conscious of it. Off our radar. Yet our subconscious can “shut down” whole arenas of choices. Without our awareness that it is happening. How can we consider ourselves powerful if there are aspects of ourselves that we are not aware of? So, what is the difference between a very powerful person and, perhaps, a homeless person that is having a tough time just trying to get through the day? The curious thing about working with consciousness … is that it is ethereal. Undetectable by our five senses. We can’t see our own thought processes as we go throughout our day. We can’t “see” what factors our subconscious is weighing with our every choice. This can be a very big deal. Epic really. If, indeed, we are…

Living Your Passion Opening the floodgates of your Soul’s expressions In the beginning … Divine Mother and Divine Father were having an inspired moment… What if … … and in that first intention, the universe was created. OK. That might be the short story of creation. But the point is … our inspiration is the seeds of all new things. INspiration is the portal of our own Soul. It isn’t a common everyday thing to be totally tuned IN to the constant stream of inspiration from our own Soul. Those people who are tuned in seem charismatic and vibrant to others. There is an excitement around them. A walking creation-machine in motion. I would suggest, one of the key factors in making these vibrant souls so electric, is the nature of their ego. For so many of us, our ego really runs the show. In other words, so many human…

It Is All For You You have the best seat in the house We can find ourselves looking for it. Looking for a better experience. Perhaps we see other people enjoying themselves. Or we read something that makes us long for a particular experience. Or perhaps we just want to feel better. But you are it. You are sitting in the BEST seat in the house. What you want to experience is totally possible. It is the journey through time that will bring it about. And when you “get there” it will be in the moment that you feel it. In the body that you are living in right now. Indeed, everything that you will experience will be felt in the body you are in now. What will you feel today? What did you feel yesterday? To get more mindful of our present environment is to hone our ability to…

Your Body Is Your Karmic Canvas How DO You Feel? Can you feel it? Feelings. How we feel. This is the time. Right now. How do you feel right now? This ever-present Now is the only time you will feel anything. Including heaven or hell. Our feelings are a real-time guidance system. How we feel has a message for us. On the shadow-side of life, our feelings can hold pain. All of the shadow emotions are a reflection of the shadow side of being human. Depression. Grief. Sorrow. Deceit. Betrayal. Shame. Guilt … You get the idea. So-called “Negative” feelings are a sign we have disconnected with our truth. I say “so-called” because, as Rumi has said, “Both Light and Shadow … are the Dance of Love.” What … What? Love cannot be the source of pain. All of those negative emotions can’t be from Love … Can they? Well,…

Sometimes life can feel unbearable We are human beings living out a karmic story. And sometimes it is the karma that can make this life feel so painful. Really painful. The chances are good that you have some unresolved pain in you. Right now. But can you feel it? There are events that can put us on our knees. There is a pain the hurts so much, that we are shaken to our very core. For myself, I have felt very intense pain several times in this lifetime. One was rather recent, with the unexpected dead of my spiritual brother. A man I walked side-by-side with, for over 30 years. But it doesn’t feel good to talk about pain. Is there a better thing for us to talk about? Certainly, there can be more enjoyable things to talk about, but there might be a day when some pain comes your…
