This Is Why?

By | Conception, Inception, Intentional Living, New Thought, Spirituality, Success | No Comments

So THIS is why I can never keep my New Year’s resolution? You begin every new year with the desire for a clean slate, a new beginning, a time that you can set our goals and intentions and FINALLY make the changes you want to see in your life.  You truly want to usher in some new habits and kick those nagging bad habits to the curb. But by February, many of your resolutions are already abandoned or forgotten.  So why do we struggle so much to follow through with the resolutions we set for ourselves? There is one singular thing that everyone on…

The Four Pillars of Thankfulness

By | David Ault, Gratitude, Thanksgiving, Trust | No Comments

Does my thankfulness have roots? I do not let another year of holiday tradition come and go without sharing my gratitude with deep, action-oriented expression. I tell the people who’ve championed and supported me exactly how much their lives have contributed to my life. I don’t merely think it but dive deep into the well of my capable expression and I let them know what they mean to me.   Does my thankfulness have action? What I actually do have was not achieved by my little ole self. What I do have contains the energy of many who have worked,…

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…

Today’s Chorus

By | David Ault, Politics, Consciousness, Solution, Love, Inner Guidance, Greek Chorus | No Comments

In ancient Greek tragedies there was a chorus of actors whose role it was to comment on the action of the play. The intent of the Greek chorus was to offer summaries of the play to the audience and help move the narrative forward. Today, it seems this Greek chorus model of commentary is having a resurgence. With 24 hour news stations, social media outlets and radio talk shows constantly commenting, the modern tragedies surrounding our nation’s governance and well being seem futile. One has to diligently search to find credible unbiased resources today. Most of today’s ‘choruses’ are nothing more…

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…

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…

Living Out Loud

By | Bold Living, Living Out Loud, People Pleasing, Trust | No Comments

The phrase living out loud often describes a person who lives their code of conduct in a transparent manner. Writer Clarence Budington Kelland penned, “He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived and let me watch him do it.” Spiritually speaking, living out loud suggests using everyday life as a platform to prove the principle of spiritual law – to take a perceived limitation and transform it into a new standard of accomplishment – to take a desire and go after it with intention and purpose regardless of any ‘mess among the mystery’ that may be unearthed in the…

Universal Tough Love

By | Overcoming Fear | No Comments

The influential mythologist Joseph Campbell once offered this, “The Universe always strikes you at your weakest point because that’s what most needs strengthening.” Although the word ‘strike’ is an interesting choice, Campbell is relaying that the Universe perpetually offers us the chance to evolve. One might even say, It insists on it. Generally our fears are exaggerations of limitation in a landscape of infinite potentiality. Through fear we see the world as an unfair punch to the gut, a strike, yet the Universe will not stop showcasing one wondrous manifestation after another through cooperative lives. Its our choice to either abolish the…

Disappointment

By | Communication, Ernest Holmes, Fear of Failure, Feelings, Henry David Thoreau, Science of Mind | One Comment

Stick around long enough and I will disappoint you.  I will not live up to an expectation that you have of me – a persona perhaps formulated in your mind after listening to me speak or from taking a class with me or from shaking my hand on a Sunday on the front steps of the Center in Atlanta or a book-signing at a convention. I will perhaps let you down by not acknowledging you in the way you deserve, by not remembering your name or from catching me in a moment when my human nature is far more visible…

Gratitude Is A Lifestyle

By | Gratitude, Thanksgiving | One Comment

Gratitude is a lifestyle, not an expression reserved for a special occasion. To practice gratitude requires something of you. Mainly, it is to see the light of truth in all situations. What a journey our souls signed up for – to walk this planet, in this incarnation, and to reawaken daily to the practice – the deliberate choosing, of seeing the Divine in all things. It is your soul’s assignment and it is what you and I came here to do. This season of  Thanksgiving, whether we gather with family and friends, or find ourselves alone, our souls need our cooperation. Just like it does everyday, our true…

Remembering and Forgetting

By | Conscious Remembering, Spirituality | No Comments

And still, at times, we forget. In that forgetfulness, we engage absentmindedly in life by attempting to force the outcome. We are attached to the when, what, where and how – unknowingly fearful that something we long for may not happen. Without realizing what we are doing, we reunite our minds to stale themes of  “life as unfair or portion controlled” with regards to opportunity or success. And still, at times, we remember. In that remembrance, we begin in Mind and see the mental picture of the desire as an already accomplished fact. We design its perfect mental prototype and…

Clarity

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

Clarity is a spectacular gift that awaits our acceptance. It is much like that needed gasp of air that rushes to the lungs after being weighed down in the waters of dense confusion. Clarity restores us to our true nature. It aims its spotlight on our darkened worldview. Becoming clear is exactly that, it is becoming conscious that clarity is your natural state.  It is within you now. How may intrinsic acts of becoming clear benefit you in these situations? Co-dependence – Clarity births increasing awareness to anyone on a conscious path that you cannot do anyone else’s growth for…
