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 Narratives are You running? Who do you think you are? You can sprinkle flour on the kitchen floor, to see if you’ve been sleepwalking. But how can you tell where you are really stuck? The thing is, our ego cannot even comprehend the vision our soul has for our life. It’s like, magically, sending someone in the 13th century a hand-held DVD player, with a built-in screen, and the first Star Wars movie ready to play. A 13th century mind couldn’t wrap its head around what it was looking at. Yet, here in the future, we are accustomed to such stories and technologies. No big deal. So, your soul has a similar relationship to who you might become, over the coming years and decades. Your soul, having a metaphorical DVD storyline that is in resonance with your life purpose. And your ego gets to decide if it happens at…

The Power of Zero From the ashes So, we talked in the last blog about your ego being like a charge of static electricity. Like the kind you get when you shuffle your feet across the carpet when the air is dry. In other words, you didn’t have an ago the day you were born. But your Soul, the source of the consciousness your ego “runs” on, was there. Complete with a life-intention and purpose. So, there was zero ego in effect because the ego didn’t exist yet. And one hundred percent Soul consciousness. Then along came your ego.  Time out! …  All bets are off. We always have the opportunity to live 100% in our heads. All narrative(s), all the time. And so many of us do just that. scrolling our way through our online interactions with others. On our phones. In our stories. What if you arrive in…

By Becoming Empty, You Become Full The re-integration of your Soul There is an emptiness, a purity you might say, regarding the language of the burning bush. “I Am That I Am.” No posturing. No real “information.” No stance. No thing. When we look to make progress on our spiritual journey, we can search out information. Books, podcasts, lectures, etc. That is just fine. But within the last mile of our spiritual journey, there is a purging of … really everything. It is not that information does not have its value, but rather, the information itself creates a belief. It is done unto us as we believe. It is easy to see the vast collage of beliefs that people are owning. And yet, across those vast belief systems, is a great diversity. There is so much going on in the news these days. With each side stating their belief system(s),…

Surfing the Karmic Tsunami Catch the Wave! This is a most fantastic time to be alive. To be here on Earth now affords opportunities that, perhaps, have never existed in the history of history. At least in the understanding of the collective consciousness, and how it is programmed. Can you see a tug-of-war, so to speak, for the collective mindset? Why is there such a torrent of effort to have sway in what you think? The collective consciousness of humanity is the creator of our collective future. Which affords opportunities for massive profits. Yet Nature is never in it for “the money.” As we re-constitute our Soul, we enter the easier realms. In other words, we entered more difficult “terrain” when we fragmented ourselves. Harmony is the key to “seeing” the natural design of life. What are the narrative(s) that you are choosing? What narratives, that the collective consciousness is…

Connecting with your Higher Self Your Ego doesn’t know it all How is your life going? So far so good? Perfect. Wait, what? What if you answered that your life was not so good? Perhaps you feel like you have been through the proverbial ringer. Enough! Life has a way about it. The sage and the psychopath are both swimming in the same “sea.” The same world. So what gives? Nobody has the same karma as you do. Not the exact same karma. Your life path(s), through this lifetime and all the lifetimes before this one, has created … well … you. The more I have studied this human experience, I have found that we have several core factors that contribute a lot to how we see ourselves. The ego, our emotions, and our Higher Self or Soul. The first two, our ego and our emotions, are where most of…

You can’t escape … your Divinity The Kingdom of Heaven is within you … now Have you dropped the ball? Do you feel like you’ve gotten off the “path?” Feeling a bit out in the weeds? You can think that you have fallen from Grace. You can’t. Well … you can. You can think that you are not enough. Or, perhaps, that the struggles before you are too great. You can think of your life in any way that you want. Who is more “righteous?” The sinner or the saint? Jesus or the Devil? If you were, metaphorically, to go visit a planet where everyone is … well, “Jesus”… everyone Divine … there would be nothing to learn. It would be like taking an advanced sailing class, but the boat is in a backyard swimming pool. Nothing here to challenge you. No skills to learn. Not compared to navigating the tempest…

Life in the Fast Brain What is the role of the ego? There are many, many spiritual gurus that think the ego is to be reduced or shrunk to be as small as possible. Some even use the term to kill the ego. But something doesn’t add up with that stance. Sure, indeed, the ego can be the source of so much suffering. The ego can be a significant contributor to our karmic dysfunction. The undisciplined ego is indeed something we would want to heal and teach, if we are wanting to fulfill our true Divine potentials. But riddle me this. If indeed the ego “runs” on the framework of our mind, and we are only using 10% of our mind, then as we activate more and more of our mind, or mental horsepower, then the “engine” our ego is running on becomes much more powerful. Based on the idea…

Can You Reset Yourself? So many narratives … so little time How many triggers do you have? Are you easily offended? How do you react to completely contrary points of view? If your life gets turned on its head, how long does it take to re-adjust to what is? Could you go back through your life and look at every decision you have ever made, and decide, with each and every one, if they were “right” or “wrong?” Are you a writer? a dancer? a poet? a Diva? an architect? a singer? a doctor? a healer? an artist? a sage? a mystic? a … fill in the [   ]. Can you decide, in this moment, which one(s) of those you “are” … or “are not?” I never saw myself as a writer. In fact, my ego argued with my heart and soul for about six years. In those first moments…

Stand Solid through the Chaos Weathering the storm These times … they are a changing. ~ Unknown One of the more common ways we lose our way, is when we take in information and then base our life on this information. I know we are constantly bombarded with information. But when we take it in, and make it our own, that is when we put our power behind it. Whatever it is. You cannot lose your power “somewhere else.” In other words, when we lose our power, it doesn’t “leave” us. It gets fragmented within us. You are always in 100 percent control over your power. It is never anything “out there” that is holding your power. It might not seem to us that we are always holding our power. This is due to our soul’s decision to fragment ourselves into seemingly less powerful archetypes. In order to live out…

Changing your narrative. How hard are you holding on? Flushing Your Subconscious How nimble are you? How quickly can you adjust? Your heart is a non-linear consciousness. Knowing all about You. Yet, if our ego can’t keep in step with our hearts, it creates an emotional turbulence in our lives. This emotional turbulence creates an undercurrent of stress and anxiety to our ego. So let’s help our egos stretch their sense of Self. And there is nothing better than our imagination to stretch our sense of Self. Imagine you walk into a DVD store. OK, DVD’s were old 10 years ago, I know. But just imagine with me. So, you walk into a DVD store. There are so many genres in the store. Narratives about archetypes playing out some narratives. And as you enter, you pause and reflect on your existing narratives, and the corresponding archetypes that you are playing…
