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…

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…

The Pragbodhi Cave

By | Awareness, Decision Making, Inner Vision, Spirituality, Travel Adventure, Wholeness, Worthiness | No Comments

Raj and Santosh met me at 5:30 AM at my ashram door in Bodh Gaya, India. With all three of us riding on a single motorbike, we traveled in the pre-dawn light towards the sacred site known as the Pragbodhi cave. Nestled within the side of the mountain of an impoverished area named Dungeswari Hills, it is the cave where the Buddha fervently prayed, meditated and sought answers to life. At the advice of other ascetics, he abandoned all joys and nearly all food in order to obtain the enlightenment he so desperately longed for. After six depleting years of…

Pin The Tail On The Donkey

By | Awareness, Divine Order, Intentional Living, New Thought | No Comments

Remember this game – Pin the tail on the donkey? This childhood birthday activity required us to be spun around, blindfolded, leaving us to dizzily make an attempt to pin a paper tail on the proper location of the donkey poster while navigating through darkness. The one who came closest to pinning it in the proper anatomical location won. At times it seems we can’t help ourselves. We still play it. Our physical nature continues pinning blame on something or someone on a ‘donkey’ of worldly effect. We have been blindly spun and tossed by winds of irrational opinion, raised…

There Is No Box

By | Awareness, Blog, Creation, Inner Vision, Spirituality, Vibrational Awareness | No Comments

Think outside the box? You’ve heard it countless times. But what is this box we’ve long referred to? Metaphysically speaking, there is no box. The realm of thought energy knows nothing of boundary so it knows nothing of containment. Thought as vibrational energy is anywhere and everywhere. It is the immeasurable scope of imagination. It is the vast undefined arena of possibility and it’s ALLNESS absorbs both you and me. So being instructed to think outside of something that doesn’t exist may be more empowering when realizing there is no box. The box is illusion. The limitation of thought is…

What About Those 60,000 Thoughts A Day?

By | Awareness, Blog, Conscious Remembering | No Comments

You may have read or heard from a variety of sources that we humans have something upwards of 60,000 thoughts a day. 60,000. I’m not sure how one actually calculates such a precise number. I conjure up images of some sort of thought gatekeeper with one of those clicking devices in hand. There they watch, pressing and pressing with each passing mental reflection that flows through the various lobes of my brain, including the ones that are conscious or unconscious, the ones obsessed over or vaporized in an instant. Regardless the precise number, I’m sure we can all agree that…

From Prevention to Transcension

By | Awareness, Inner Vision, Intentional Living, Overcoming Fear | No Comments

Often our spiritual journey starts as an act of prevention. We are in pain and we seek a solution to alleviate our turmoil, to transport ourselves to an improved lifestyle.  This is understandable. It is the reason most of us became avid journeymen on a spiritual path. Yet, as we grow in our awareness of spiritual principles, we will begin to understand that staying in the energy of prevention only perpetuates an experience where prevention is necessary. With too much focus on prevention as our cause, its need becomes our inevitable effect. Perhaps you’ve heard it this way, “Saving for a rainy day produces rainy days.” By all…

Shout It Out

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, Gratitude | No Comments

Today, I know that everything that has transpired in my life has brought me to this moment of awareness.As I become aware of the now – the fact that I am breathing, that there is food in my belly, a roof over my head and clothes on my back, I can see that I have more in my life than a great deal of our world’s population. I am aware that I am free to think, act and choose regarding my education, my political and sociological beliefs, to worship in what ever way speaks to my brand of spirituality. And more and…

A Horse of a Different Color

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, Reclaiming Freedom | No Comments

The inhabitants of Troy tyrannized the ancient Greeks for many years. Fueled by an undeniable demand for independence,  the Greeks staged an elaborate plan to win back their  freedom. They began by staging a mass exit where many appeared to flee by sea. In this apparent running away, they left behind a monument – a wooden horse of enormous proportion. Amused by the Greeks decision to run away, the soldiers of Troy boastfully claimed the horse as a victory trophy and, by trolley and rope, wheeled it into their cities heavily guarded compound.  During the night, those who had appeared to  leave by sea returned to a strategic…

Walk Into The Cave Unreluctant

By | Awareness, Bold Living, Conscious Remembering, Decision Making, Inner Vision, Reclaiming Freedom, Spirituality, Wholeness | No Comments

You must walk into the cave unreluctant As you enter, your eyes momentarily entertain the vapid darkness, yet it is your heart that will see.  It is your heart that will beat with signals of illumination, shedding light for your yet-to-be steps. You must walk into the cave unreluctant At first you doubt your ability to navigate the jagged twists and unknown turns that await.  Still, by the simple act of entering, your instincts reawaken and you are welcomed home to the ancient wisdom nestled patiently within your own mind. You must walk into the cave unreluctant And for those…

Problems

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, Reclaiming Freedom | No Comments

You run and in your running you feel a temporary assurance that all this fear will stay locked in some distant room whose door you never have to open. You fight and in your fighting you feel that if you can just be louder, stronger, more long-standing in your aggression that the possibility of something or someone defeating you can be delayed. You stay and in your staying you uncover an internal creative power that has waited in anticipation for your recognition. You are reminded that fear will travel with you regardless how far you run. You are reminded that in your resistance…
