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…

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…

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…
