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…

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, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus | 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,…

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…

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…

The World Is Our Classroom

By | Affirmation, Blog, Divine Order, Intentional Living, Kahlil Gibran, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

We are perpetual students and the world is our classroom. Profound and necessary learning comes from situations we encounter outside our comfort zones. Kahlil Gibran wisely reminded, “I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.” Within every dialogue, every interaction lie opportunities for us to willingly examine the varied range of subjective perceptions and emotional reactions erupting from us. These encounters are gifts for growth. And, as writer Neale Donald Walsch poignantly writes from the perspective of God in his Conversations With God book…

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…

No One Is Betraying You

By | Betrayal, Change, Ernest Holmes, Intentional Living, Spirituality, Vibrational Awareness | No Comments

No one is betraying you. Each person you encounter is honoring your practiced vibrational atmosphere. Before anything surfaces in our experience, the theme of that experience first appeared within our thoughts. And, it wasn’t just a one time mental drive by.  The corresponding thought was something that drove round and round in our mind and eventually parked in the lot of our belief system. We champion this idea when we hear how Olympic athletes habitually thought of a winning performance so loyally that when the winning moment arrived they remarked it was like any other day. They had been succeeding at their desired goal within…

You Can’t Hurry The Harvest

By | Divine Order, Intentional Living | No Comments

Private victories precede public victories. You can’t invert that process any more than you can harvest a crop before you plant it. ~ Stephen Covey I am reminded of the phrase, “You can’t hurry the harvest.” In order to even have a harvest, one must plant the seed(s) to begin with. One must nurture, cultivate and tend to the care of the soil. The harvest comes in its right and proper time. When we each advance to that place where we know beyond all doubt that our prayers are answered – that our good is there, then absolutely nothing interferes with the harvest. The already-having- received consciousness delivers every…

Carpe Articulum – Seize The Moment

By | Carpe Diem, Intentional Living, Spirituality | One Comment

  The Latin phrase Carpe Diem (seize the day) was first attributed to a poem written by the famed Roman poet Horace during the reign of Augustus.  It gained fresh awareness for many of us by the actor Robin Williams in the 1989 movie Dead Poets Society. Williams, an English professor, challenges his class of boys to be cognizant of the opportunities that are contained within every moment, “to gather ye rosebuds while you may.” Herding the boys  around a trophy case filled with pictures of young athletes of yesteryear, he quips, “These boys are now fertilizing daffodils.”  This leads…
