The Cardinal

By | Conscious Remembering, Inner Vision, Spirituality | No Comments

There is a cardinal that often visits our backyard. These visits are nothing out of the ordinary. Plenty of birds visit the dense tree population of our neighborhood. Yet, the male cardinal, with its striking red coloring stands out in the summer landscape of deep greens and browns and the stark winter pallet of gray. Of all there is to see, my eye is immediately directed to him wherever he is perched. There is no denying his presence. I continue to affirm that my inner vision sees spiritual truth in the same way. This truth teaches and reminds us that all is well, all the…

Life Is Always Fair

By | Conscious Remembering, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.  ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson Our relationship with our world is the overriding template for our relationship with everything. A bold statement, yes, but when you earnestly combine the infallible workings of spiritual law to the way each of us operates in life, then you can see the truth in Emerson’s words. The most powerful thing any of us can ever remember and then apply is the fact that it is never about anything or anyone ‘out there.’ Our experience, attitude and circumstance is not created from what anyone did…

Walk Into The Cave Unreluctant

By | Awareness, Bold Living, Conscious Remembering, Decision Making, Inner Vision, Reclaiming Freedom, Spirituality, Wholeness | No Comments

You must walk into the cave unreluctant As you enter, your eyes momentarily entertain the vapid darkness, yet it is your heart that will see.  It is your heart that will beat with signals of illumination, shedding light for your yet-to-be steps. You must walk into the cave unreluctant At first you doubt your ability to navigate the jagged twists and unknown turns that await.  Still, by the simple act of entering, your instincts reawaken and you are welcomed home to the ancient wisdom nestled patiently within your own mind. You must walk into the cave unreluctant And for those…

Breathe In

By | Awareness, Conscious Remembering, Inner Vision, Reclaiming Freedom, Spirituality | One Comment

Breathe in the particles of power that swarm and move in and around you. Everything your heart desires can be breathed in through an acceptance of one who has no problem receiving. What you crave is as readily available as air. Would you deny air? Why, then, deny the treasures that already have your name chiseled upon them? Breath in the relief that comes through revisiting the porch of plenty. Breath in your wholeness – the complete synchronicity that links one internal system to another. Breathe in your yearning’s long awaited relief, your creativity’s acceptance and honoring. Breathe in your eternal…

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…

The Nucleus Of All Life

By | Divine Order, Healing, New Thought, Spirituality | No Comments

There is a sustaining energy that is the nucleus of all livingness – it links everything and everyone. It is infinite in nature – always has been, always will be. This energy is personalized in your life by your willingness to recognize it.  To say that good does not exist for you is perhaps one of our greatest fallacies.  It is self-inflicted disconnection. (Think of yelling at the electrical cord pulled out of the socket for not giving you power.) By gathering evidence of its absence or forming coalitions to debate its demise, only makes its apparent absence seem more…

Do What You ‘Cannot’ Do

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

The famed artist Pablo Picasso once stated “I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” When we stop and contemplate how everything is unified, we become aware of how everything new and unknown to us is coupled with the already-existing solution.  Think of it as an ever present instructional manual.  Therefore, when we doubt our capabilities, it truly is “self” doubt – not Soul doubt.   Our Soul has by its very nature, the keys to an infinite kingdom of good and ever expanding experience. It seems Picasso’s ‘doing’ was…

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.

Feeding Time

By | New Thought, Spirituality, Thomas Troward | No Comments

Everyday the Divine dips Its spoon into a big bowl of perfect and declares it’s feeding time. So the question becomes, is our mouth open or closed? Are our hearts focused on receiving or resisting? In a moment of my own fear and resistance this week, my practitioner led me to this paragraph written by Thomas Troward If the end is already secured, then it follows that all the steps leading to it are secured also.  The means will pass into the smaller circle of our conscious activities day by day in due order, and then we have to work upon them, not with fear, doubt or…

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…
