Atlanta Minister reflects on the passing of his “mom” – Louise Hay

By | Affirmation, Current Events, Eulogy, Louise Hay, Love, New Thought, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Spirituality, Ty Andrews | No Comments

I was asked to write something for the media regarding the passing of my dear mentor Louise Hay. Their headline made me tear up because in all honesty she was an incredible mother figure to me. She helped birth within me a new paradigm of spiritual understanding and decades later officiated and gave me away in marriage to my husband Ty Andrews.  Below is my attempt to encapsulate the boundless nature of an icon. There are countless stories to match the countless works of good she personally shared with me and publicly with the world. I’m positive that as time…

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…

Preaching To The Choir – A Good Thing

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, David Ault, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

I’m sure you are familiar with the term ‘preaching to the choir’. It roughly translates that we waste our time in trying to make believers out of believers. Derivatives of the phrase can be traced back to the late 1800’s where the phrase ‘preaching to the converted’ was written by a theologian as a chastisement to a missionary for not going where true conversion was needed. If you are familiar with my messages, you know I like to challenge the either/or labeling we place on worldviews and public narrative. From the choir perspective; does not the depth of our believing…

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…

The Pragbodhi Cave

By | Awareness, Decision Making, Inner Vision, Spirituality, Travel Adventure, Wholeness, Worthiness | No Comments

Raj and Santosh met me at 5:30 AM at my ashram door in Bodh Gaya, India. With all three of us riding on a single motorbike, we traveled in the pre-dawn light towards the sacred site known as the Pragbodhi cave. Nestled within the side of the mountain of an impoverished area named Dungeswari Hills, it is the cave where the Buddha fervently prayed, meditated and sought answers to life. At the advice of other ascetics, he abandoned all joys and nearly all food in order to obtain the enlightenment he so desperately longed for. After six depleting years of…

There Is No Box

By | Awareness, Blog, Creation, Inner Vision, Spirituality, Vibrational Awareness | No Comments

Think outside the box? You’ve heard it countless times. But what is this box we’ve long referred to? Metaphysically speaking, there is no box. The realm of thought energy knows nothing of boundary so it knows nothing of containment. Thought as vibrational energy is anywhere and everywhere. It is the immeasurable scope of imagination. It is the vast undefined arena of possibility and it’s ALLNESS absorbs both you and me. So being instructed to think outside of something that doesn’t exist may be more empowering when realizing there is no box. The box is illusion. The limitation of thought is…

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…

Capture The Wind

By | Blog, Bold Living, Spirituality, Vibrational Awareness | 2 Comments

I capture the wind with my nose and mouth. I begin to let it play within me, giving me a greater experience of life than just what exists within my body. I stand and engulf the universe, inhaling the galaxies, the stars and existential life, the ethers. It is the truest definition of breath, not something manufactured from class techniques or spiritual instruction. It is the breath of eternity itself and for the first time, I understand what it means to be whole. I wonder where this intoxication of clarity can lead me?  How can one go about the business…
