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…

Root Systems

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

All we ever see of the majestic tree is the part above ground. Think about it. In the world of nature, all we see is the above ground formations of its existence. Yet awareness teaches us that its life is dependent upon something which weaves its way deep into the soil – the root system. Without this unseen entity, there would be no stem, no branch, no blossom or fruit. Each of us has our own mental root system. Unseen,  just like the roots of nature, it still provides us with a quality of life that expresses in the world…

You Are Far Greater Than You Know

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

The beloved writer Kahlil Gibran summarized his best known work The Prophet in one sentence. You are far greater than you know, and all is well. Our path in consciousness is a path of shedding. We are offered the opportunity each day to shed the false ideas about ourselves that we have collected over time. To consider that we are far greater than we know is a truth that knows no bounds. The greater our depth of consciousness becomes,  the more yet-to-be explored greatness awaits us to accept. We are indeed far greater than we know – always and forever….

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…

In The Bag

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

The jeweler, in ancient times, placed the precious yet unrefined gems all together in a velvet bag. Shaking it vigorously, twisting and kneading the bag between the palms of his hands for prolonged periods, he would thus empty its contents and discover that the once coarse exterior of the gems were now smooth and polished. Much like the parable, when we are willing to be with the “unrefined” parts of us, when we can stand next to our limitations and take time to examine them, then the old, coarse beliefs are able to be smoothed. Throughout our lives, (being inside…

Certainty

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

“If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don’t abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.” ~ Rumi Borrowed certainty — whether it’s from our family, friends, church or country–is not an optimum place to dwell… The poet Rumi’s words coax us to crawl out from the confines of a sandbox of naïveté, of weakness, conformity and/or fear into a boundless world of self–discovery.  In that world, yes, you will stumble,…

Fear can make you cling to the strangest things

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

When seeing this picture, I simply had to smile with an accompanying sigh. All too often this revealing truth is playing itself out in our lives.  We cling to a dysfunctional relationship because we fear being alone, of losing the house or of appearing to be a failure. We stay put in an unfulfilling work environment for fear that nothing else exists. We fear ageism, sexism, corporate downsizing, and losing insurance benefits. We fear moving forward, of making a mistake, of taking a risk……… And from this fearful existence we become accustomed to the self-imposed shackles that bind us. It was Marianne Williamson…

When You Want Something You’ve Never Had

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

“when you want something you’ve never hadyou have to do something you’ve never done” – Unknown Our innate sense of expansion is forever bringing us to the cliff’s edge of life. Sometimes we willingly jump, other times we dig our heels and resist the mystery. We read stories of those who’ve risen from the conformity of their times be it ancient or modern, and gladly sing their praises.We quote their writings. We deify their existence. But it was a variety of ancient text and scripture which offered us the potent question, “Know ye not that ye are Gods?” That inner…
