Happiness Is

I started on this journey nearly 21 years ago with one quiet, desperate thought and that was that someday I might be content. To just be at ease with life, happy in my own skin, free from suffering was all I really aspired to because to be truly “happy” was something I never really believed I could acquire. After…

Mind-Set

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain, but to add color to my sunset sky.                  Rabindranath Tagore Whether you’re trying to create a healthy body or a full bank account, one of the keys to success is to be mentally “buff”. You must be strong in your intent, clear in your vision and determined…

Still Movement

“The mind has the same power as the hands; not only to grasp the world but to change it” Colin Wilson A wise man once said “There is an art to getting things done and an art to leaving things undone”. It seems we are all in such a hurry to get everything “done” that…

Illusion Rocks

Reality, as we know it, is what we allow ourselves to know of it. If science is correct and we only see 2000 bits of information per second vs. the 400 trillion bits available AND the the universe is really 99.99999% (let’s just round up and say 100%) not here, not solid, not visible, then we must…

Unknowable Joy

I AM the very joy I seek ! I spent  five years, from 2004 to 2008, studying joy.  I learned to create with joy, to transform into joy and to be joyful. Ultimately, I learned that I am the very joy I seek. I was content with that knowing until a few days ago when I received a message…

Drops in the Ocean

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson A single drop of water often symbolizes the Atman, a Hindu concept for Self. This Self is transcendent to the lower self and exists even though we are unaware of It’s doings. Brahman…

Expre$$ion

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. Jim Rohn. I had a dream the other night where someone asked me “Why is it ok for you to be greedy with words and not ok to be greedy with money?”. So many thoughts streamed through my head before I was able…

The Voice of Ego

Life is a travelling to the edge of knowledge, then a leap taken. David Herbert Lawrence People often ask me how to differentiate between the voice of Spirit and the voice of ego.  I describe the voice of ego as the loud, obnoxious guy who stands on the table and tells everyone he’s right and you should…

Metamorphosis

Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another. Juvenal I was sitting in my backyard one beautiful summer day when I noticed a caterpillar dangling, upside down from the back of one of my lawn chairs. He was wiggling around, swinging to and fro and I was fascinated because I knew he was about to change into…

True Self

We are not just manifestations of something divine, but the Divine made manifest!
