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, Uncategorized | 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…

You Were Made For This

By | Affirmation, Blog, Conscious Remembering, Current Events, Faith | No Comments

This profound writing by Clarissa Pinkola Estes continues to surface at pivotal times to remind us why we are here. Take to heart that our first task towards transcendent living is remembering the value and worth of those immediately around us.    You Were Made for This. My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations…

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…

____, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile.*

By | Conscious Remembering, Current Events, Eulogy | No Comments

As nature illustrates, there are countless varieties of trees. They are all distinct, indigenous, adaptable and wide-ranging but they are all a part of the one collective known as tree, each with root systems and a single stem or trunk. Trees do not judge other trees. As anatomy and physiology illustrate, there are innumerable varieties of people. We are distinct, culturally indigenous, adaptable and wide-ranging but we are all a part of the one collective known as people, each with compatible internal organs such as lungs that breathe in the same rhythmic pattern of inhale and exhale. Yet, people judge…

Drop And Give Me Twenty

By | Affirmation, Conscious Remembering | No Comments

The military drill, ‘drop and give me twenty’, can be used as transformative spiritual tool. Everyone of us yearns for a higher quality of life.  With each consciously lived day, we become aware that this higher quality is not only possible but certain given our conscious cooperation with the fundamentals of Spiritual Law. When writing my book, The Grass Is Greener Right Here, I recalled a Sunday service long ago where a minister took a potato and tossed it, surprisingly, into the crowd. He shouted, “Pretend it’s hot!” The crowd began earnestly passing it through the auditorium with minimal contact. “That,” he…

Remembering and Forgetting

By | Conscious Remembering, Spirituality | No Comments

And still, at times, we forget. In that forgetfulness, we engage absentmindedly in life by attempting to force the outcome. We are attached to the when, what, where and how – unknowingly fearful that something we long for may not happen. Without realizing what we are doing, we reunite our minds to stale themes of  “life as unfair or portion controlled” with regards to opportunity or success. And still, at times, we remember. In that remembrance, we begin in Mind and see the mental picture of the desire as an already accomplished fact. We design its perfect mental prototype and…

Shaken To The Core

By | Conscious Remembering, Spirituality | No Comments

Shaken to the core delivers air to the inception of your belief and allows it the chance to breathe and redefine itself. Everyone’s core needs shaking, their cages rattled, their complacency injected with stimulants- equal parts breath and suffocation, to bring them to the precipice of decision. Either I choose life or I settle for its lesser model. Life is the undefinable allness that permeates every living thing. I am life, not a reasonable facsimile.
