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…

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…

Spring Cleaning

S – Sweep – Sweep up and throw away your excuses as to why you can’t or won’t do something. Stop being the one who merely comments on what is wrong and start being the one who offers solutions. P – Polish – Polish your heart with all its unwavering and steadfast passion and allow it to lead you to unlimited ways of creatively expressing who you are and what you love. R – Rinse – Rinse away all of the self-doubt that has long coated your motivation and become willing to reacquaint yourself with a shiny, untarnished and larger…

Brains and Body

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

If the cells could speak they would say, “Please you up there, will you change what you’re sending down here because we’re quite uncomfortable. We’ll gladly cooperate if you will.” ~ Frederick Bailes I find Bailes words both fun and powerful. It can be easy for us to negate the power of our own consciousness in creating physical wholeness, spiritual stability and emotional joy. When any sense of powerlessness strikes us, all we need do is stop – seriously STOP, take a breath, and remind ourselves that the Universe is on our side. Long ago the American Heart Association revealed…
