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…

Clarity

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

Clarity is a spectacular gift that awaits our acceptance. It is much like that needed gasp of air that rushes to the lungs after being weighed down in the waters of dense confusion. Clarity restores us to our true nature. It aims its spotlight on our darkened worldview. Becoming clear is exactly that, it is becoming conscious that clarity is your natural state.  It is within you now. How may intrinsic acts of becoming clear benefit you in these situations? Co-dependence – Clarity births increasing awareness to anyone on a conscious path that you cannot do anyone else’s growth for…

Only One

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

There can only be one. There is never two. What you do to another, say of another or think of another, you do and say of yourself. No amount of justification will ever change this. No amount of structures built, rhetoric spoken, or battles waged will ever eliminate the connection of one to another. There is no such thing as ‘us’ and ‘them’ – there are simply those who have re-awakened, those who are stirring from sleep and those still under the anesthesia of illusion.

Cultivate Self Praise

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

Take leave of the petty. Take aim towards substance. Grow the genius seed inside you. All else is barren wasteland, particles of problems that offer little of the life that awaits. Cultivate self-praise and harvest an applauding Universe. Nurture your willingness and watch the vines of opportunity spring out and stretch over forgotten, neglected landscapes of infinite good. There is no such thing as too late.

The Jailed and the Jailor

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

“I beg of you,” said the prisoner to the jailor. “Set me free. Let me go.” I awoke from this scene playing itself out in my dreams.. Dream interpretation suggests that every character within the dream is an aspect of us. Likewise, spiritual insight reveals that we, too, are connected to everyone in this ‘awakened’ state we call our lives. The purest of freedom comes when I liberate myself from viewing anyone or anything as separate.  When I am able to wrap my awareness around that simple, yet profound idea, then I can begin to understand how I am both…

Allow

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

Take off the cloak of laden responsibility that accessorizes your need to fix the world. The world does not need fixing.  Instead adorn yourself with the shroud of wisdom that hangs in the closet of your own inherent nature. Wrap that around you and allow yourself to see past appearances.  Allow yourself to see that even in the apparent absence of order, there is order, even in the apparent absence of love, there is love, even in the apparent absence of connection, there is connection.  If it is ALL God, as we say, how can it be anything else? Our…

Wag The Tail

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

I accept that I am loved, particularly when I approach my beautiful and aging Golden Retriever, Scout.     As I come close to him, speak to him, sometimes simply look his way, his tail begins to wag.  His awareness of me aligns with my awareness of him and instinctively his uncensored enthusiasm is channeled through that windshield-wiper motion of affection. I have longed stopped fighting the idea that this energy we label as God, Divine Source, Infinite Intelligence, is a loving presence.  I have accepted that it can be nothing other than absolute love otherwise the foundation of my…

The Person You Want To Be

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | One Comment

The person you want to be – you already are Yes, the person you want to be already exists You must allow the welcoming of their essence,            the brilliance of their steadfast knowing You must remove the muzzle from your timid mouth            and speak the language of harmony, purpose and possibility            no longer willing to establish roots in the diminished soil that border obstacles made fertile by  small minds. You continue, stepping forward, moving through the jagged rocks of mystery, through the pathway lined with those who hurl stones at your daring The person you want to…

Something Greater

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

What are you good at? Go ahead – mentally make your list and consider how long you’ve felt this way about all the items on the list. Don’t be shy – admit every skill, talent, ability that you can practically do with your eyes shut.  And now commit to stop doing it. Instead commit to what you are great at. In the spectacular Swiss countryside where I write this from, I wish to offer a bit of perspective. People everywhere, regardless of country or culture, at some moments in life share the same energies of fear and trepidation over the…

The World’s Reflection

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

Seeing within changes one’s outer vision. ~  Joseph Chilton Pearce The world is nothing but the reflection of our thought. This powerful realization and reminder helps us regain our center when we wander away from authentic living. That wandering, be it mental or physical, can take us into realms of the earthly world that are seemingly harsh and unjust – a world that bears little resemblance to the spiritual tenet that God is ALL in ALL. And as our inner mental focus returns to the sanity of peace, as we are able to move beyond the everyday seductions of separation,…

Good Is Everywhere

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | No Comments

Try something with me.  Wherever you are reading this from, be it in front of a computer screen or smart phone, look up for a moment and focus on the first object you see.  What about that object can you express gratitude towards? Whether it is a stapler, a glass, car or pile of laundry, could you come up with at least a dozen reasons as to why that thing provides you benefit? 19th century New Thought writer Orison Swett Marden wrote, Opportunities? They are all around us… There is power lying latent everywhere waiting for the observant eye to…

The Fruit Is Always Ripe

By | New Thought, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus, Spirituality, Written | One Comment

Imagine a tree laden with fruit.  The fruit is always ripe and no matter how much you gather, the tree is perpetually producing and producing and producing.  There is no season without harvest. You walk under this tree and stare up into the dense branches, spellbound by the countless clusters of good. However, there had been a time before now, when sleep had overcome you.  Lying in the tall grass surrounding the tree, you dreamt of how the tree must struggle to survive. Its roots lacked stability to sustain and nourish it. The fruit was scarce if at all. You…
