The Four Pillars of Thankfulness

By | David Ault, Gratitude, Thanksgiving, Trust | No Comments

Does my thankfulness have roots? I do not let another year of holiday tradition come and go without sharing my gratitude with deep, action-oriented expression. I tell the people who’ve championed and supported me exactly how much their lives have contributed to my life. I don’t merely think it but dive deep into the well of my capable expression and I let them know what they mean to me.   Does my thankfulness have action? What I actually do have was not achieved by my little ole self. What I do have contains the energy of many who have worked,…

Disillusioned

By | David Ault, Feelings, Intentional Living, Personal Responsibility, Politics, Spirituality, Wholeness | No Comments

I feel disillusioned. Admittedly, it is astonishing to look at the number of areas in my life where this feeling is currently front and center. At the top of my list is the unconscionable actions of politicians who choose profit over people. Yet, if I do even a minor amount of research, history reveals the cyclical nature of this behavior. There have been many a bad king, a ruthless tyrant, autocrat and greedy oppressor that have managed to climb into positions of power. And, to watch this behavior played out in these times without consequence, boggles my mind and saddens…

Shame Blankets

By | Forgiveness, Personal Responsibility, Shame | No Comments

My oldest brother Doug was a professional baseball player who made millions and then lost everything from drug abuse. The abuse became so bad that he ended his own life days before Christmas in 2004. There was a ten-year difference in our ages and my memories of him as a young boy were not of admiration but fear from his frequent volatile outbursts. Prior to his death, he had scammed many family members with money and I watched how his behavior negatively affected those around him. Imagine my surprise when fans from all over the country wrote condolences about the kindness…

Atlanta Minister reflects on the passing of his “mom” – Louise Hay

By | Affirmation, Current Events, Eulogy, Louise Hay, Love, New Thought, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Spirituality, Ty Andrews | No Comments

I was asked to write something for the media regarding the passing of my dear mentor Louise Hay. Their headline made me tear up because in all honesty she was an incredible mother figure to me. She helped birth within me a new paradigm of spiritual understanding and decades later officiated and gave me away in marriage to my husband Ty Andrews.  Below is my attempt to encapsulate the boundless nature of an icon. There are countless stories to match the countless works of good she personally shared with me and publicly with the world. I’m positive that as time…

Today’s Chorus

By | David Ault, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus | No Comments

In ancient Greek tragedies there was a chorus of actors whose role it was to comment on the action of the play. The intent of the Greek chorus was to offer summaries of the play to the audience and help move the narrative forward. Today, it seems this Greek chorus model of commentary is having a resurgence. With 24 hour news stations, social media outlets and radio talk shows constantly commenting, the modern tragedies surrounding our nation’s governance and well being seem futile. One has to diligently search to find credible unbiased resources today. Most of today’s ‘choruses’ are nothing more…

On Being A Sentinel

By | Awareness, Charlottesville, David Ault, Oneness, Politics, Spirituality | No Comments

The job of a sentinel is to stand and keep watch. Hyper vigilance and keen awareness are not only essential but are a part of the sentinel’s duty. No distractions. Stay awake. With this position there is no room for privileged thoughts of absention and circumventing. You are there to safeguard and protect. When you professed your belief in oneness, you became a spiritual sentinel. The oppressive bias and elitist ignorance that is the core of racism has long attacked those who have dared to declare their independence. The final hour of that abusive privilege is here and there is no…

Rusted Development

By | Bold Living, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, Faith, Inner Vision, Intentional Living, Joseph Campbell, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

Once, when living in Los Angeles, I came across a circular metal patio table that someone left curbside in my neighborhood. It was the perfect fit for my postage stamp sized backyard area. I brought it home, spruced it up with spray paint, and marveled at my new find and estimated cost savings. The only problem was that I had not thoroughly examined the table’s condition. There were huge circular rust patches underneath its top. No amount of painting over it would remedy its corrosion. The paint would repeatedly peel off. It needed a good deal of sanding and repair…

We’re All In Hospice

By | Conscious Remembering, David Ault, Intentional Living, Love, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus | No Comments

We’re all in hospice. From the moment we arrive through the portal of birth, we begin the journey towards another, equally shared portal for our exit. The origin of the word hospice refers to being either guests or hosts. This world is our hosts and we are its guests. As guests moving towards that same exit portal, we are free to ‘do life’ with regard to how we think, how we speak and how we choose to treat the billions of other guests who are journeying towards the same destination. Regardless of what kind of guests we choose to be,…

Preaching To The Choir – A Good Thing

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

I’m sure you are familiar with the term ‘preaching to the choir’. It roughly translates that we waste our time in trying to make believers out of believers. Derivatives of the phrase can be traced back to the late 1800’s where the phrase ‘preaching to the converted’ was written by a theologian as a chastisement to a missionary for not going where true conversion was needed. If you are familiar with my messages, you know I like to challenge the either/or labeling we place on worldviews and public narrative. From the choir perspective; does not the depth of our believing…

It’s Always Something

By | Affirmation, Bold Living, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, Divine Order, Gilda Radner, Intentional Living, New Thought, Reclaiming Freedom, Spirituality | No Comments

Beloved comedienne Gilda Radner frequently joked, “It’s always something.” So many see and relate to our everyday human existence with perpetual overwhelm. Life seems packed with situations we feel must be overcome. Our existence can be lived in a vibration of low or high panic, invading everyone’s days regardless of socioeconomic status. This is especially evident when we bemoan life solely as an obstacle course of unending challenge. Without a mental reframe about this thing called Life, our narrative devolves into futility and a belief in struggle as the norm. Gilda was right. It is always something, yet that something…

Behavioral Compliance

By | Affirmation, Awareness, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, David Ault Quote, Intentional Living, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

Abraham Lincoln wrote, “I care not for one’s religion whose dog or cat are not the better for it.” What good ole Abe infers is more than kindness to one’s pets, it is about behavioral hypocrisy. One’s actions are the telltale indicators of one’s internal loyalties. I may be able to quote chapter and verse from any holy book on honor and morality, post passages from inspirational resources and profess to be a ____________ (fill in religious affiliation), and all of it means nothing if I am generally unkind or march in formation with the mass conscious witch-hunts of an…
