Which aspects of God Are You Experiencing Now
August 21, 2018
I was rudely awakened at 3am by a bat swooping around my room. It's been many years since I had that experience and of course it wasn't a fond one then either. However, it will not ruin my wonderful day. I have discovered something that feels important.

Very thankful to be here and able to enjoy posting. Mortality was a focus the last few days and honestly while I enjoyed the sharing, it tired me out. My patience with others has increased more than I had been aware of and I am grateful for that improved behavior trait.
A conversation today illustrated how frustrating I can be to those who want me to engage in hostile debate. It's always permissable to disagree without attacking the other person. More and more I insist on attacking the issues. Name calling and insulting others does nothing to bring peace or understanding. Working together is the way to progress.

“As a person sheds worn-out garments and wears new ones, likewise, at the time of death, the soul casts off its worn-out body and enters a new one.”— Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 22
It is the cycle of birth and death that brings up questions of Our Creator and the afterlife. India has long held the light of mysticism for humanity. A study of the Bhagavad Gita helped me to find courage to face obstables and challenges.

Give time and respect to yourself daily. Expressing gratitude for all that you are, have and experience is a good starting point. Remember to extend your positive thoughts and intentions to others too. Preparing the path for a positive day can be as simple as this. Love yourself enough to give thanks for your life as it is.

Prayers and much respect for Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, as she prepares for her transition. I know her god daughter, Whitney Houston will be ready to sing her into heaven with so many others that she shared music and fame with.

I awoke to an odd feeling after dreaming of helping to transmit healing energy to a dear friend in western NY state. I finally identified the feeling as grief. So many changes in the last 9 years. I have been gliding through them like a champ. Today is the right time to release the sorrow and sense of loss that accompanies changes. It's always a balancing act of embracing the new and dismissing the old with excellent choreography!

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs
I read this 8 years ago and totally agree with Steve. Take it to heart and see if you agree.

New Moon partial eclipse and Mercury is still retrograde. We are living in interesting times and growing with gigantic stretches. A friend recently reminded me that when enough people believe sometimes it comes into being. This happens regardless of the positive or negative energy applied. Creation has no conscience. It is a tipping point that can't be overcome. The visual image that comes to my mind is a tug a war game, each side doing their best to drag the other side into their territory. At some point the acceptance of outcome occurs and the struggle ends. End it now please!

Racial justice and tensions are in the forefront of news and community conversations. I had the unique experience growing up in a military family, living with people of all races and cultures and learning of our sameness rather than differences. It prepared me for a life in human services and spiritual work.
Equal opportunities, equal pay, and equal respect are right and just. It disgusts me to observe anyone berating a person for that which they do not have the ability to change.
August 9, 2018
Approaching the subject of death of the physical body is always a creative experience because the communication needs to be directed according to the loved ones beliefs. Several people in my life have said good byes to loved ones who transitioned to another dimension of life. I find it is always acceptable to offer this message of comfort, "love never dies".
I am reminded of Martha's headstone..."God isn't dead and neither am I".

Waking up with Sunflowers on my mind. I love this month and all the bold color it brings to life. I have reached the bold colorful phase of life myself. Facing fears and wrong thinking brings out the best in us. While serving Spirit in Lily Dale last week I had the opportunity to connect with a young girl on a bench who so needed to be acknowledged and encouraged. I was blessed to be the instrument of God's love in that moment. Which aspects of God are you experiencing today?

3 years ago my cousin in Iowa stated "you need to smile more". Today I feel an ongoing smile framing my mouth. Smiling triggers a feel good sensation that others respond to easily. It's like my friend in the Bahama's writes, happiness is contagious like a good healthy virus. Spread it around freely!
August 3, 2018
Traveling on divine wings and loving each day. What a wonderful series of encounters and experiences this week. Spiritual connections in Ohio more in Lily Dale NY and great friends and good food in Buffalo. Tomorrow I return to Lily Dale with all the memories of years living there and lots of new friends too. Cherish every moment, forget preconceived notions, flow with the harmony in every minute. Remember to ask your questions and expect answers.

Just watched a live stream of the lunar eclipse, blood moon, over Rome and it was really red. People across the planet were watching with me. I love this side of technology, making us more connected with shared experiences.
Mars appears as large as the moon today, it's that close to us. Understand that many people don't like themselves and this period is providing all the open window to see exactly what we can heal or discard from our consciousness completely.
Birth pangs continue during the purge and for a time afterwards.
Be Kind to yourself and all others too. This is how we bring forth a new way of living together in harmony.
July 26, 2018
The time to clarify and correct is now. Mercury is retrograde until 8/18/18. Good time for sorting and organizing documents and photos. Also an ideal time for gathering facts about ideas you have procastinated about. It is not a good time to begin new projects. Please take extra care to clarify any travel plans and coordinated efforts as mutual misunderstandings are more likely now. Be mindful of the full moon eclipse tomorrow, it is a fiery one!
July 25, 2018
Humming in harmony as if in a constant state of hugging and being hugged now. I freely extend this vibration to all the seekers everywhere. Being love and loved is natural and contagious. Share freely please.
July 24, 2018
Waking up earlier than usual today. Peaceful moments of gentle rains free of winds and lightening cracks. Soaking it up! Rebalance the body, mind, spirit triangle.
Feel the graceful energy flow into every cell and cavity, twirling rays of harmony. Flushing out the old decay easily. Massaging glistening new spaces into exquisite vessels of wellness and beauty. Radiant wisdom shines forth. I am alone in the abode of The Sage. She knows me well. Peace is the path ahead.

% ? * since I don't have words to accurately express all that I sense is taking place now. There is a palpable energy shift occuring and each one is being positively affected by it. Today I have accepted a change in sleeping habits is also a part of the change I write about today.
Imagine please, a rusty old car that still runs but looks neglected and misused. Each of us has such a vehicle, our physical bodies are like cars. Right now there is a major overhaul of the inner workings of our vehicle taking place by masterful repair entities. I am grateful and encouraged to accept the blessing of improved wellness. Because we each have free will I know some will resist the changes and may increase their pain and suffering by doing that. It is their right to choose and not for others to judge them. We continue to be sorted and separated for reasons we still do not comprehend. Maintain a positive approach and keep your curiosity engaged. Questions will bring understanding.

2 days ago in a Chinese restaurant....I felt a loving energy and turned to see a large fish in a large aquarium sending love to me. I responded and he followed me with each movement I made. We were dancing it was wonderful. Big Joy! So now you are able to call me Dances with Fish.

Thinking for oneself is vital to being a responsible person in this world. We can see the affects of lies and mis statements, confusion, division and more lies. Does it matter? Kinda does for those who wish to have some loyalty to our country and faith in our representatives. We can fight it out among ourselves but this situation is global. Our leader in chief sold us out plain and simple. He's a sell out!
Many stick their heads in uncomfortable places to avoid thinking about the whole mess. That's south eastern NC coast terminology, we call a mess a mess and we have many of them. The present mess, TD and Putin meet up and messages can run the whole range of emotions. Anger, appalled, insulting, head shaking, eye rolling and glimse of maybe hope and finally spitting it all out as unfit for consumption.
I don't see how anyone can be loyal to America and support the guy in the oval.
July 18 2018
Wonderful day on planet Earth! Harmony is coming more clearly to our senses. The old patterns that held people in fear and confusion are disolving. Many are feeling the freedom to question the past, others just turn to see the path ahead. Some are affirming their new abilities, choices are abilities too. Be present and focus on the now. Growth is happening on a massive scale.
July 16, 2018
I trust everyone reading this is coming back together in greater harmony. The latest energy shifts have been intense and relentless especially for those who are in the habit of resisting changes. The process that we are evolving through is not easy and it will not wait for laggers. Change is upon us and there is no going back to the same old ways of thinking and being. We are becoming new again, just as if we were growing new fingers and toes. We have to learn to balance and manipulate life with our new appendages. Grasping the change first and employing all that it brings us next. Be kind and gentle with self and others please.

Celestial designs indicate a solar eclipse tonight and early tomorrow depending on your location on the earth. Astrologers tells us it's time to seize our power and go forth with determination and confidence. It's been seven years since an eclipse landed on the Capricorn Cancer axis
. This arrangement fired up by Pluto will set up urges that continue for the next 12 months. It won't always be cheerful, but it will disclose the reason we need to embrace change.
July 11, 2018
Compassion and Kindness are vitally important to everyone. We have no clue what another is dealing with internally, unless they decide to share it. Let's make kindness our first and last gesture as a way of being true to our own divine nature. In doing so we will support others regardless of their circumstances. My own heart is heavy with sadness today. Please be kind always.

"You are breaking cords of control that were so deeply ingrained in all earth beings that you needed to dig deep within you to discard those cords no longer appropriate for this new age
The amazing piece, we have relayed over and over, is that you did so in one generation instead of the multiple generations once thought probable by both you and us of the ethers.
But by doing so, you experienced more pain than thought possible in one physical body. A bit like the seeming miracles performed by Olympic stars pushing their total being far beyond what most are able or willing to do." (above Shared from Brenda's blog)
So it is you are both the role model and proof that such is possible. Does this concisely describe the seeming chaos societies are now experiencing world wide? Those who will remain in 3D are fighting to hold on to those moving to 5D. I can have compassion for their fear of change without surrendering to it to help them.

I have prayed for Yemen since becoming aware of the extreme hardships their people are experiencing. Their elected President fled to Saudi Arabia a few years ago. There is wide disagreement about who the real rebels are attacking and defending port cities. The US began supporting the Saudi side of the fight in 2015 and continues to sell weapons and refuel bombers in flight. Why?
Why does our Congress continue to permit us to engage in undeclared wars year after year? Yeman is a country that suffers greatly, along with several others in that region of the world. Why do we directly contribute to ongoing wars and starvation of human beings? I pray it ends soon.

Shu-man is a fav term to depict the woman of today. Filled with all the grounding and mystery of mushrooms, constantly growing while nuturing others. Very whole and complete in her balanced female/male attributes, strong and soothing at the same time. When I shared this information with a friend down south she was able to connect Shu-man with Baubo, the goddess of laughter in Greek mythology.
When things seem as bad as they can get call upon Baubo for rescue! It's her irreverent ,slightly raunchy humor that brings us out of the paralysing trance that intense grief and fear can cause.

Want to meet me in person? I am preparing 2 workshops I will present within the next 27 days. Akashic Records will be offered at Wesleyan University in Virginia Beach, VA next weekend. The Holistic Art Expo is offered twice each year in conjunction with Association for Research and Enlightenment, ARE.
I hope to see everyone I
connected with last January and some new people too.
August 1st I am presenting "Ghost Encounters" in historic Lily Dale New York. The building is an octagon shape and hosts the local Mediums League. Octagon shaped temples and churches date back to ancient Greece, 3000 bc. It was a popular style of building during the late 1800's in America. Come out an enjoy a real Spiritualist community that has served Spirit since 1880.

If one sees the homeland as "the evil empire" and Darth Vader being performed by the last several Presidents, we know how the story ends. My confidence is restored.

I have had an epiphany about my urge to social activism. It is most easily illustrated by referencing Merlin in the Round table story. Arthur is near the collapse of Camelot and he is consulting Merlin, his wizard. Merlin informs him that the time of magic and wizards has passed. This is a new time. Arthur must muster strength and wisdom and make his own choices going forward.
The scene reminds me that I fought the good battles for social justice in my time. I engaged fully in the 1970s and we made signifigant progress. Now is not the time for me to take to the streets and rallys. It is for me to offer counsel when it is sought. I rely on people, especially the women of America, to guide justice, fairness and equal opportunity to thrive in this land.

Ready to say so long to June and open wide for July? Best re evaluate the open wide part of those ideas. We are entering a very angry explosive month. I double checked that with the fabulous Rick Levine's astrology video just now. 2 eclipses and stressful aspects between Mars, Uranus and Saturn, and let's know forget Pluto in the mix. We have the perfect opportunity to learn self control of our reactions. Let's use anger to rise to wisdom's message. Time and again we know when wisdom leads everything works out for the best.
I have much respect for the marchers and demonstrators working to end zero tolerance, separation of families seeking protection and abusive law enforcement behaviors. What causes ICE to believe they are a higher authority than the courts? Who has misinformed them? And WHY? What is the devilish plan behind it all?

Our energy is always broadcasting who we are and what we are focused on. It brings us people and situations to confirm our thoughts and feelings, and to help us learn to broaden our knowledge and insights. When there is disharmony between our conscious thoughts and the message of our energies the conflict will bring stress demanding resolution be found.
Everything in our lives is working to empower and enhance us in all ways. In metaphysical groups we call it growth and healing. Like birth it isn't a comfortable process but it's worth the struggle once we achieve deliverance. Understanding this message means we have more capacity for extending unconditional kindness and compassion to everyone. We know there are reasons and times when a little extra help is welcome. It helps us to feel alright in whatever situation we might find outselves in.
Giving to others what we want helps to create a generous vibration that brings us what we want in the perfect way and at the just right time.

I wanted a complete escape from our social political situations SO...
I have been listening to Lee Carroll channel a support entity "Kryon" speaking on DNA as a blueprint of ones akasha. He says, 90% ot human built in diagnostics is not functioning as it was meant to. Pleadians changed some DNA many many years ago. He says this infused free choice into people on planet. Earth causing humans to loose innate knowledge of healing and the universe.
Lemurians are considered the original society on Earth and they never had a war. Perhaps that experience is why we continue to seek peace? Hawaii is the seat of their landing on Earth so long ago. They knew how to heal with magnetics. They were able to regrow limbs and regenerate their bodies as needed.
He adds that there were 3 separate places called Atlantis near the Greek isles and that isnt important at this time.
Human evolution is showing in our DNA changes. Races seed eachother and they become part of this planet. DNA can be seen on a quantum level but not in 3D. There will be a quantum lens on day and we will understand biology much better. We are shifting into galactic alignment for the new 26K year cycle.
What creation story is resonating in you?

Today the Poor Peoples Campaign celebrated a 40 day movement with a large and inclusive rally on the National Mall in Washington DC. Speakers, musicians and supporters came together to demand a better opportunity for all people to share in social, economic and political justice. Mother of course stool out with her experience and eloquent message. A dignified senior woman who has been arrested many times for speaking out and standing up to injustices.
It impressed me that no one stood and spoke alone. Union leaders introduced members who spoke for them. Those present were a unified body with a sharp focus and one voice. All members of diminished groups were represented. All races and sexes warmly shared their truths. The movement is all inclusive and continues the work started by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr 50 years ago. I look forward to the rest of their movement.

The Sun spreads its rays upon us for
warmth, light and wellness. Too much sun and we cause diseases. The balance of
holding ourselves open to the beneficial Sun long enough to soak in all the blessings it brings but not too long, helps us understand adjustments in life. Adjustments made willingly and pictured with positive outcomes receive the greatest benefits. May we balance and live the good times always!

I was consumed by the political garbage I had been gagging on yesterday. Repeating lies does not make them truths. Propaganda obscures real issues and prompts to act humanely. I prayed for clarity so as to re establish my balance and sense of peace. I awoke today very disappointed and ranting as if I had not slept.
The clarity I'd prayed for came after I spit out the rant.
Fearful people elected DT and cronies. The fearful white evangelicals, bought into the "need for a big daddy" to protect them and fix the inequities they perceive; those damn immigrants, lazy colored folks and crime bend perverts, etc. We are living out the rsults of fear based choices. The solution is for people to press their elected representatives to do their jobs now.
Tell them to end the illegal wars, end prisons for profits, stop traumatizing families seeking a better way of life in America, establish Medicare for All, eliminate student loans, decriminalize victimless crimes, Give honest quality of life a chance again.
As I was concluding the clear insights above this arrived from a friend...
When you allow a full alignment with the Source within you, unpleasant things that may be happening around you will not matter. Instead of being influenced by the unwanted things that are happening, you will be influenced by your alignment with Source and with Well-being. Excerpted from Phoenix, AZ on 2/1/14

Happy Father's Day to all the men who love, guide and protect us. Thinking of the adults who have been a lasting source of comfort and wisdom I find both men and women have been a wealth of formative influence. I can only pray that I have been able to do the same for others.
Having lived an untraditional life in many ways, I know that unseen forces of love and wisdom have shaped my choices and those I share/d a path with. I am blessed and grateful for all. Let us each be the light we are!

Independent Media is our best opportunity for transparency in news. Unfortunately corporate owned newspapers, tv, radio, even on line pages can't be trusted to have a free or honest breath to speak with. Understand the goal of all corporations is profits. They sell out routinely and constantly.
Please support independent media so that we maintain honest free speech channels of information. I suggest the following, you may know of others too; Democracy
Now, Tim Black, Niko House, TYT's Jimmy Dore,
Claudia Staber, Real Progressives and Agressive Progressives to list a few of my favorites. Without our support they could disappear and that would be a very dark time indeed.

So much energy in action this weekend. I was a grateful participant in a body, mind spirit expo in Roanoke at the Unity Church much of this weekend. What a beautiful campus, grounds and buildings are utilized to the fullest. People of all ages and persuasions joined together for the highest and best for all concerned. All inclusive love was the vibration shared and it was so appreciated.
This morning I listened in to the Christian church service delivered by Rev. Dr. Barber a leader in the Poor Peoples Organization. Again, the energy of all inclusive love was proclaimed. Experiencing and affirming Oneness can heal pain and suffering, restore faith and empower people to be all the best of their potential.
Share the knowing that all inclusive love is the path to peace and plenty.

Why are we struggling so? It is an elementary method of learning about ours and others strengths and limitations. In the current chaos of global confusion and mistrust can anything good possibly result by engaging in struggle ?
I recently listened to a Constitutional Law professor explain that the struggle between the three branches of government is how we maintain a balance of powers. It is necessary in his example for each of the three to strive for more power all the time. It was also stressed that the Constitution was the referee for all three. Presently we have one branch wanting to be the referee and the executive. More and more it is shown that this person is trying to operate outside the Constitution.
The remedy is in the hands of all voters and our Congress.

Changes, shifts and reconditioning are happening on a global scale. 2018 is a turning point and it is causing anxiety levels to reach new heights for many of us. We sense time is close for something but aren't able to discern just what that event is.

Sharing an insight on healers in this physical dimension and beyond. I had the opportunity to read for another psychic medium over the weekend. She explained her dreams had been informing her that her mother had a message for her. We often seek objective assistance on "our own stuff." When I connected I sensed her mother was a powerful healer. The client said her mother's hands would become hot spontaneously when she was in the company of anyone in pain. Mother would ask about it, the person hurting would come forward and she was able to dissolve their pain right away. This type of information is what we call evidential mediumship. It is something so specific about the Spirit being that the sitter is certain it is them.
Her mother went on to explain that she had been very busy with healing work in the 5th dimension and others too. She said it was now time for the elevations to begin.
The fine tuning we have been engaged in for several months is ending. The divisions are forming for the next steps in evolution.
It was a sacred privilege to receive this information for my friend and colleague, and I am sharing it here for those who have need of it.

One of the pleasures I enjoy as a sort of retired senior in pretty good health is being playful, a throw back to earlier times, yourthful play.
I recognize that the longer I engage in youthful activities the more I find myself regressing. Being metaphysical in approaching that observation took me to the arena of an archetype I'd lost track of.
She definitely had not lost track of me. I have in fact been her puppet too many times. The Brat, took over around age 7 for me. It was when I decided my parents and therefore authority figures in general were not to be trusted or believed, The Brat stepped up to help me navigate life's obstacles and opportunities.
During yesterday's full moon I woke from a very restful sleep at 3:15am knowing that it was time to release The Brat and step fully into adulthood. It was clear, completely clear to me. I visualized a conversation with her, thanking her for all the adventures we had shared. I assured her that I would miss her sassiness and courage.
So now I rest, Floating freely in harmony, patiently knowing there is more to come.

The belly laugh Goddess Baubo is depicted in art as a pelvis face and vagina. She is associated with sexual humor and regeneration. She is a mature Goddess (crone) who helped bring Demeter out of her desperate life threatening depression when daughter Persephone went to the underworld. She is important, reminding us to laugh when stress becomes overwhelming. Her sexual protrayal helps us keep things in perspective, nothing is permanent and nothing can be lost.

Looking at today's social, political and economic issues it is obvious that women and students ought to run away with the coming elections. We need for them to stand up, speak out and take offices in all branches of leadership. People are hurting and afraid that the future will be more of the same or worse.
It seems schools are afraid to intervene with bully's and "other perhaps threatening kids" so of course students don't feel protected. Paranoia is spreading in every institution and branch of government. Cross investigations and deal making. I know from experience distrust is very contagious and spreads easily. How can we re frame our current reality into something with a likely positive outcome?
Swamp creatures are exposed regularly and that is a good thing. Pains in ordinary people's lives are being revealed and owned instead of hidden away and denied. This is the perfect time to come together and take back our government, schools, health care, jails and social programs.
Register to vote, go to the polls with family and friends for each election. Register to run for an office or work on a campaign, participate in the solutions. We Got This!

My recent Facebook post said gun owners must take control of their guns and be held accountable when crimes including murders are committed with their guns. Mind boggling replies by those who want to protect gun owner rights and those who want to excuse mentally ill who commit crimes.
This read was followed by posts of the paranoia of branches of government holding cross investigations and misusing power for personal purposes.
Responsibility scares some people more than guns in the wrong hands and/or corruption in government. Are there any honest, courageous adults to make this right?

The Royal Wedding Day! A friend pointed out "it is bigger and more important than landing on the moon." It is bigger than the election of Obama too. When the royal family embraces a bi racial American to their family, with its history of colonization and enslavement, new bonds have truly been made. I pray their healing spreads around the globe sowing love and compassion everywhere.

After many prayers and confirmations I have accepted the folly in speaking about present US and world situations. Non violence is the only path to peace. When people tire of fighting it may come. Current circumstances encourage insults, sarcasm, lying and aggression. Pray for Peace!

"On A Wonder Day Like Today" song from Roar of the Grease Paint Smell of the Crowd. I performed in the chorus in college many years ago. The song was played at my wedding, also many years ago. I consider it my theme song most days because I know the awe of living in difficulty now and how suddenly challenging times can change; bringing blessings and miracles to us. During a recent healing session with a man who had lost his hearing I heard this message, "never give up on yourself". It was me speaking those words to the man receiving healing. I sensed the message pertained to each of us.
Our miracles and blessings wait lovingly for us to invite them into our lives. Invitations do not come with whines and cries and moans. Invitations come with faith and hope and trust that what we seek is also ours to embrace at the perfect time. May right now always be our perfect time!

Why do we struggle? We can see benefit in children struggling to learn to master their bodies for physical control and mobility. We understand intellectual struggles to gain skills, understand the past and solve problems. Creativity presents struggles too. But why do adults struggle? Is it to prove oneself capable or to compensate for a perceived shortcoming? Perhaps its to gain approval from others? It is something We Task ourselves with, so its course is a path of choices.
Struggling can be a symptom of earned or misplaced guilt maybe even shame. If close examination brings one to clear awaresness then the resolution must be a spiritual one. Is the answer to cast out the lies we accepted as truths? It happens often. If we decide we are to blame forgiveness is the solution. The only solution possible. Make amends where you can and forgive the situation and all parties involved, including yourself. The past can ruin the present when we carry old bags of stinking dung into every moment of each day, spoiing blessing after blessing.
The path to a better, healthier and more satisfying future is in our hands now. Accept the healing and positivity that is yours/mine/ours to be claimed.

Feeling??? It's a choice we are able to dial up to suit ourselves moment by moment. So why do we decide to feel something outside of peace, love and joy.
Discover the power of choice from a positive emotional position. Examine what other states of being call you to pay attention to them. Is it an old habit? Has it rewarded you consistently in the past? Is there a better method to reach the goal? Is the goal worthy of your suffering? What is the benefit?
Suffering is a choice. I am not suggesting that sad events aren't real or that they should be ignored. I am saying with clarity that even in suffering we are making the choice to cling to something or someone that no longer exists in ways we desire. Perhaps setting a suffering time limit or granting the matter freedom to reveal itself from another perspective will be constructive? We learn to be peaceful and then the world becomes peaceful too.

I am feeling blessed to have gained clarity on the path and effect of lies. I figured out long ago that truth is an adaptable, transient body of information, often changing as we grow. Lies come from many sources and for many reasons: control, fear, and personal gain are the most common reasons.
Truth changes as we grow in need, understanding and wisdom.
When we internalize a lie as sacred truth we must eventually root it out. The mistake stems from trusting someone who misled us on the subject of the lie. Removing the lie from our mind and heart, our consciousness, smooths out our being. The pain and confusion leave with the lie. Especially when we undertake this process without blaming others. It is amazingly liberating to look back on something I once had strong convictions about without negative emotion. May we all grow and heal and learn to share more completely.

Law Day was est. by Pres. Eisenhauer to remind us WE THE PEOPLE come first and have the real power to hold elected and appointed representatives accountable. Today is Law Day....organize.
Welcome to the Merry Month of May, the time the gods and goddesses emerge with all their finery, skills and games. In olden days humans waited until June to marry because no one dared challenge the immortals for a wedding party date.
I am feeling renewed, restored and vitally energized after a long, so very long, winter. As Ram Dass says, Be Here Now!

What won't be ignored must be explored! This is Pluto Time and the deep dark repressed storylines emerge with gusto. Memories and characters long forgotten show up at the most unexpected times and places. Each one is a gift, an invitation to heal and grow in wisdom. Refusing to engage the former parts and pieces will bring pain and confusion. Explore Everything!

Good Morning from a day with sunshine in Norfolk. I smile just looking out the window. I received 2 pieces of fake news first thing today both disturbing but not surprising. I stopped before engaging and with great clarity the thought "is this anything you can affect?" arose. Once I settled on the answer "NO" it fell away like yesterdays hair sheds. Simple so simple and so important to my emotional equilibrium.

I dreamed of groups of women from all ages last night. I awoke with definitions of the Greek Goddesses on my mind. As Dr. Jung said, when the archetypes are in attendance we are helpless to resist them.
Relating this dream to the recent events in world and political goings on, I sense it is time for a signifigant rise of the feminine before the masculine kills us all off.

" I can be wicked when my trust is violated." came straight out of the core self. Once the honesty is exposed it is a quick step to realize the punishment we intend for another is most strongly inficted upon us. The resentment and or grudge we seek retribultion for hurts us for eternity
unless we are willing to forgive the offender and ourself.
I am declaring amnesty day! All is forgiven!

As we wait to see what will happen next in Syria and other war torn countries, I pray for peace. I pray for all beings to move from fear and competition to compassion and cooperation. I have a vision of the marvelous world we can experience once we are working together in mutual respect. It can happen quickly once we are of a like mind.

My work as an instrument of Spirit includes many roles and accepted goals. Recently I have been engaged in spiritual counseling with a few people who are what I recognized to be "closed circuits", nothing comes out and nothing goes in. I delivered this conclusion to my guidance system with the suggestion that I end our working relationship with them because no progress was possible, due to their closed circuitry.
I was instructed to hold them to objective truths, concrete examples and time frames of the pain they were locked in. I followed this instruction. The results were miraculous! It was as if they awoke from a bad nightmare and realized they were free of it. Be alert to where your mind hangs out. Give it guidance and direction that leads to your highest good.
April 3. 2018
Yesterday I found myself engaged in a good deal of travel and rearranging living arrangments for others that I hadn't expected to be involved in. Everything turned out well and for all of that I am thankful. It was a much longer and more active period that I am accustomed to and as a result I slept in a couple of extra hours today. There was a time that would have caused tons of stress and rushing around playing catch up but not today. Today I relaxed into the natural energies that serve me best.
As I listen to Rick Levene's April astrology report I accept there will likely be more days like I just experienced during this month of April.

March for Our Lives has been very well covered in the media today. People from around the globe rallied in support of more gun safety, school safety and protection for our children and their environments. I walked in my hometown, made the full mile which I wasn't certain would be possible. I wasn't at the head or tail of the march, I finished in my time.
We passed an historic marker "Bloody Monday" commemoration for the 47 prayerful people who were beaten and arrested while seeking equality on June 10, 1963. I cried when I read the marker. When will our inhumanity end?
Ignorance and Fear will always make wrong choices.
Naomi Wadler, 11 year old elementary school girl, had me in tears a second time today as she spoke up about the black women killed and forgotten, little or no media recognition for them and often their killers weren't convicted either. It struck a raw nerve in light of Crystallyn DeJac, 13 yr old white girl raped and strangled in Buffalo, NY on Valentines Day 1993, her killer was never even charged with her murder. I wrote her story in There's DNA to Prove It. She is the brave young women who moved heaven and earth for justice. I delivered her message and it reached a brave seasoned cold case detective who has able to prove that she was correct.
If only the District Attorney had been more interested in justice than his career!

Broken hearts produce enablers trying to heal everyone, believing that is how they can heal too. "If only we can be loyal and strong and loving long enough, things will be good for all concerned" that's the Lie we repeat to ourselves. The lie is tucked into the heart of such a person and it will kill them if they aren't able to discover and release it. A healthy relationship can't come from a lie, not even your own lie.
Know that your capacity for love has no relationship to your ability to tolerate abuse, being lied to and exploited. This is how we love ourselves....protect and provide the best for yourself first. The start of honesty and wellness can be now.
March 16, 2018
Searching for something? Know that you already have it in you, the real you, the part that is overlooked and sometimes forgotten is in touch with everything there ever was or will be. As we near the New Moon in Pisces, about 9am EDT Saturday, the darkness welcomes us for refueling, rediscovery and deep recollections. Honor this opportunity and it will enrich you on all levels.
March 12, 2018
Another noreaster for New England and snow showers in central VA and NC. A friend who resides on a small island in the Bahamas reported recently the the ocean in behaving strangely. She said it is acting very angry and rather exagerating the tides, to the point that she no longer walks certain parts of the island for fear a rogue wave could take her out to sea.
I accept that climate change cycles are natural and normal for Earth and we must adjust to the changes because we live on this planet. I also feel strongly that our actions are making the changes more extreme than they might be without the toxins and fracking that we continue to perpetuate. I think it is clear that our stewardship must improve for the sake of all life here. Sadly, it isn't our first time with these issues I believe we have destroyed life on other planets and continue to make the same mistakes as before. Greed and power must be reined in!

We have entered a period of retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio. What? Who Cares? Astrology can prepare us for trends and powerful currents shifting people and energies. This aspect takes many into their unconscious more so than is usual for us. I bring it up so that we can pay more attention to our dreams and ponderings. They are rich in important lessons for us.
We may observe others acting out their shadow characters in complete oblivia. Not all shadow characters are negative, so this could manifest as positive behaviors that are out of character just as it may show up in a negative behavior, also out of character. Awareness is called for during this retrograde Jupiter so that we may harvest the gems we have been out of touch with.

Changes and more changes, tis the season for change. The sense of excitement is thick with possibilities and varied scenerios. Choices accompanied by natural occurences dance across the mental screens I entertain. My body wants to join in but my old patterns claim it will be too tiring, maybe tomorrow? Eh, who's driving this bus?
That is the recurring question, who/what is propelling life forward? The Divine Plan will not be denied, but what of free will? Chuckling, it was free will that created our divine plan. Each of us came into this physical experience with full understanding of why we came and what we wish to bring back when we transition to Spirit again.
Refuse to accept ignorance or victimhood to hide from the thrill of being fully engaged in this magnificent experience. Say Yes!
March 1, 2018
Observing the retrograde weather, resuming cold, wet and high winds tonight. It reminds me that our jouney is never a straight incline in one direction but truly a spiral path, revisiting former thoughts and experiences as often as we venture into newness and progressions.
Lately I find my left hand stroking a wiry silver strand of hair near my ear as I ponder and play with thoughts. I consider stroking the silver hair an action that urges me to make up my mind, "remember we don't have forever". NO, I will not be rushed into conclusions prematurely. Being on my own time is luxurious and comforting. I grant myself this time knowing that it will most likely be altered too.

We are on the brink of a solar eclipse with moon in Virgo and the nodes in Leo and Aquarius. An astrologer friend explains that this will bring the culmination of what began in Sept. 2016. As I searched my memory for signifigant events at that time I realized I was not feeling well, nothing specific just very tired most of the time. I remember persisting in self treatment with no observable benefit. A few months later I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. Fortunately that section of my check was removed successfully and has healed well.
Again, I am experiencing fatigue but today I understand it comes from the travels I have just returned from. I also scheduled myself for a wellness visit to the primary care facility and a recheck with the dermatologist. Best to be confirmed! Whatever you're dealing with know that it is the best time to conclude it for good.
Be well and prosper in all situations.

I have been traveling for the last month and just returned to my home in south central VA last night. I was comforted sleeping in my familiar bed and having morning coffee in my favorite chair. The people and places I visited were all very nuturing and hospitable. I slept well every night and found a just right place for morning thoughts and prayers. The blessings I shared in and among were truly wonderful and so helpful in many ways for each of us.
As I was preparing to return home, 2 days ago, it was clear to me that anything bringing struggle or frustration needs to be dismissed as "not right for me at this time". The shift in energies at my personal level are flowing with such power and clarity I couldn't resist them nor would I want to. This new direction is quite foreign to me but I am embracing it. Swimming upstream is no longer an option, Flowing with the currents will deliver me to the just right place arriving at the just right time.
Feb. 22, 2018
The two's are certainly getting noticed today. And while we are on numbers, Numerology was my first area of dedicated study way back in 1969. John Macri was teaching classes and demonstrating past life experiences via hypnosis at his restaurant, Macri's Italian Village in Indianapolis. It was the only metaphysical watering hole in town and I felt fortunate to have discovered him.
The last time I saw John he was holding regular groups on A Course in Miracles. I want to honor his dedicated service to Spirit, holding a light during tentative times and welcoming seekers of all walks and beliefs.
Feb. 19. 2018
So much information about victims and victimizers in the news of late. Talk of social systems, laws, and human relations breaking down. Ignoring the causes or symptoms does not relieve the stress of on going events. Facing the honest reality can bring on a sense of helplessness too.
When times like those stated above arise I am reminded to be clear with myself about what exactly I can control and then remember to let the rest of it go to the heavens, wrapped in prayer. We can take action to strengthen many areas of life. What is possible begins with each of us and our thoughts and desires to improve situations.
Refuse to be apathetic or helpless! Remain positive with intentions to improve situations that are less than acceptable. Affirm that change is coming.

Keep quiet. else your tongue will make you deaf! In practice this idea grants wisdom to those willing to hold quiet time as sacred. Quieting the mind and the tongue lead to enlightenment.

Today is traditional Valentines Day all about love and lovers. Cupid is working overtime to deliver messages and tokens of love everywhere. I celebrated over lunch with a friend today.
Not everyone is uplifted and blessed with a special person to dote on them today. I had a call early this morning from a woman who was recently devastated by her love interest leaving her and moving far away.
My heart aches for her and all who suffer with relationship issues. As we worked together to bring her some emotional relief she confessed to having a recurring history of this same situation in her life. I suggested that perhaps the break up came because the purpose of the match up had been served? I was able to help her release the former mate and reclaim the love she felt had been lost and wasted. I love my work!
Feb. 10, 2018
It is will a contented heart that I continue to celebrate the kindness and generosity of friends and family supporting my time in Florida. My heart expands steadily as I learn more about the diverse expressions of love. I recognize that many divisions between people are over their muddled meanings of love that are not defined or understood clearly. My understanding is to Keep Working At It until it is effortless and natural. Compassion and Empathy are words more easily understood by some. So if Love is too diverse, try practicing Compassion and Empathy. It will expand your heart too.
Feb. 6, 2017
Today I celebrate friends, old and new, Family present, passed and at a distance. Everyone who has come into my life is a blessing and I trust it is a reciprocal experience for them as well. My heart is full of gratitude and I sense the capacity to extend more love and compassion growing daily. I read today that mysticism without devotion is like eating a gormet meal you aren't able to digest.
Feb. 4, 2018
Are you using your time and resources in ways that add to your happiness? Because that is the best choice you can make each day. As we are healthier and happier we are better able to present the healing and balance others seek. Once they recognize that it's possible because they see it in us, they can decide to become healthier and happier too.

Happy Birthday in Heaven Janis Joplin. You and your music are still loved by many many people, world wide sounds include your imprint. Timely coincidence, LOL, last week a former co worker, younger by 2 decades proposed that Flower Children, sat in parks all day, petting dogs and watching frizbee play while smoking pot.
History treated us better than that, I think?
Where are the peace rallies, marches and sit ins we employed to bring our brothers, fathers, uncles and friends home from Viet Nam? Que up for arrest when voices rise and humanitarians show up in government offices now. Get photos with zip tie cuffs on your way to pay bail.
I want all of the Representatives and Senators offices closed in DC. They can work from their home districts so the people they represent can see what they do and who they really work for. Raising money for the party doesn't count as work. Advocating for lobbyists falls in the same catagory as self serving party time.

It is noon and 10 degrees here in Danville, VA. Yesterday's snow fall closed and delayed many businesses here. The icy road in front of my home caused me to reschedule/cancel appointments for safety reasons. This window of unplanned time brought wisdom lessons to my awareness. A welcome gift!
When new insights reach me I ask for confirmation before incorporating them into my knowledge base. This happened simultaneosly today, as I was receiving the new understanding I was also receiving the confirmation of it. It arrived in an email from a close friend in another country who had also received the same information.
The gist of the message is that our DNA is being upgraded to permit enhanced perceptions, recognizing the greater connectedness of life in all planes and dimensions. The upgrade will produce more bridges of love and kindness. I will leave this message here, let it take you to your next insight.

I shared a presentation on Akashic Records at an expo over the weekend. The participants were attentive and asked thoughtful questions. After the historic material was shared the discussion shifted to considering other life forms and other dimensions that accomodate life. I joyfully express gratitude for being a catalyst for the group. Being there was a rewarding experience.

Good Morning! I can't hold this understanding in....the
reason people from third world countries want to come to America is no mystery, they want more quality and opportunities. The BETTER question is why aren't people from educated industrialized
countries coming here??? Because they have a better quality of life where they are.
If you want to make America great again begin with free health care, free education and nutritional supports when needed.

A little soul rescue work last night. Memories can overwhelm and confuse a being to the point of helplessness. Last night I was able to respond to a call for help in another dimension. This service is an opportunity to heal, uplift and nuture the growth and progress of one who is stuck and doesn't know to ask for help. I feel blessed to be allowed to reach out in compassion and faith to those in need.
Jan. 7, 2018
Grateful for the peace and healing I have received the last few days. My life is blessed with love, friendship and guidance from above. My sincere condolences to those who are experiencing loss and pain. I extend uplifting energy to be used where most needed. Know that you are loved and supported at all times. Remember to fill your heart so that you have something to give others.

I have delayed speaking on the issue of UFOs and ETs because I wanted a better vocabulary to discuss them. Today I discovered this video and it does a marvelous job saying all I ever could say and more. Enjoy

Happy Day all the planets are direct for 65 days,,,,it's about empowerment, acceptance and reaching for your dreams. I know I don't know what is coming to me or for me or from me. That I am unthreatened and content to live with the unknown as a partner is progress that came to my awareness when I was in Inverness last Fall.

Tis time to wrap up the pieces of the past and prepare for the new to come into our minds, hearts and physical experience. Rituals to help fasclitate the process might include burning a note of all you release. Rituals do serve a positive purpose in times such as these. Since Im staying in a hotel and burning isn't permitted and sadly it's too darn cold to do anything outside, I will go for the obvious and have a water ceremony tonight. It just might keep the pipes from freezing too?
Since this ceremony is new I am free to design it as I like. I've decided a cup of water for each of the 12 months. I will repeat, "I thank you, I release you now" as I pour each one into the sewer system. As simple as it sounds, it is effective when one desires it to be so. May your releases be complete and your newness most welcome. From my Compassionate Center to Yours Blessings and Happy New Year!

We are returning to the home spaces of our minds and bodies today. Full of the memories of the last few days of togetherness, and probably some nostalgic ones too. Accepting the now has been a theme for me in 2017 moreso than any other time. Being fully present Now is peaceful, kind and patient. I hope to share it with everyone reading this Now.

Happy Birthday in Heaven dear Earl....we fought like siblings when you were here on earth. Our understanding of life and our connectedness has increased since you transitioned in 1983. Your communications have guided and supported me in our mutual endeavors and continue still today. I have to acknowledge and thank you for your presence .

Happy Solstice Day! The US government has steered the country to the brink of the cliff financially, socially and globally. Today the horrible tax bill, passed by Republicans, gives the highest earners and corporations huge tax breaks that are permanent, while giving tiny reductions in withholding tax to middle and lower income earners that will expire in a few years. They admit they don't know how they can fund these revenue reductions. This afternoon we got a hint, the UN did not rubber stamp the Prez. announcement to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. So he is threatening to pull financial assistance from those countries that didn't agree with him and defund the UN too.
Beam me up Scotty.....we are tottering on the dangerous side of things.

Tonight, finally, at long last, and thankfully, Saturn moves out of Sagitarius into Capricorm. My intuitive sense is that we will be able to get to the bottom of the conspiracies and hacks that the media has been volleying about. I am NOT suggesting that dirty tricks didn't take place. We are moving into the no nonsense phase of the new energies associated with The Shifting times that started back in 2012. It is up to us to determine what our future will be like. If honesty, transparency and ethical behavior is important we must settle for nothing else. Parasitic relationships will be disclosed and dealt with individually by those affected. We will have to adhere to the same rules that we impose upon others.

I have windows beside my bed that overlook a well forested back yard. I have been leaving the blinds up so I can fall asleep and awaken looking at the sky, trees, sun and other lights that show up frequently. I love all that we gain from connecting with nature. It soothes and heals.
Recently as I scout about for connections in my new state of awareness I see a good deal about activations. My response is mixed.
December 14, 2017
Today's word Koan....a Zen Buddist term for a riddle that causes the practitioner to look outside of logic and become intuitively enlightened.
Enjoyed a spirit filled evening at the candle light service The Path held this evening. The messages were plentiful and we shared gratitude and love. I am constantly reminded how much I value being of service and encouraging others to develop intuitive skills too.

Support the 28th Amendment to repeal Citizens United and stop the insanity in government. Blaming people, agencies and media is just delaying the cure. Unbridled greed began with unlimited corporate donations to political candidates.......there is the source of our pain!

Since Nov. 21 of this year I have been observing lighted circular objects about the distant tree line outside my bedroom window. It doesn't happen each night but often. It's hasn't been observed during the daylight hours.
I'd appreciate hearing from others if they too have noticed changes since Nov. 21st,
which I posted was a humpty dumpty day.

We are One in all forms, all space time. When we awaken to that we can't harm anyone because we know everything we do we inflict on ourselves. Our I/ Eyes see enormous things across galaxies and many lifetimes. Coming to planet Earth and focusing our consciousness here in dense heavy energy brings about amnesia. We are learning with the disadvantage of the physical senses. Awakening to the etheric intellect and its limitless senses brings greater knowledge that transcends time space and thought.
Sadhguru says "if we stop investing in conflict we will have peace."

Let's consider the idea of extraterrestial beings and how they might interact with the humans on this planet, Earth??? Not everyone is able to wrap their mind around this topic and I respect your position regardless of where you are in the spectrum of choices. If you accept the idea of reincarnation, and there are many theories about the methods this might be achieved, the idea of a hybrid being is one to consider too.
What is a hybrid and why would they come to Earth?

Recently I have been gaining more insight on current astrological events. Rick Levine on Tarot.com does a great teaching video each month. The configuration of the current planets are aspecting several natal planets and I sensed paying more attention would be helpful......well suffice it to say that challenges were stiff. It took 5 days of tuning in to be able to listen/watch the whole presentation. I almost missed the last 12 minutes because of another interruption. I considered let it go and skipping those 12 mins. and I am so very thankful to report that I refused that impulse and booted it up again, for the 5th time.
I learned something entirely new about Chiron, the Wounded Healer archetype. This is my role in the world and I thought I had a pretty good handle on it. Rick stated the "Wounded Healer is that part of oneself that can't be healed. It can only be relieved by helping others with the same or very similar wounds." I can now stop scolding myself for the lingering wound. This may be a big challenge with my natal Sun Saturn conjunction. It does help me understand why the wound remains.
Dec. 2, 2017
I feel like a bobble head after weathering the latest assault on our citizenry. Greed is in control and it has no boundaries. The new tax bill was deal after deal to win the needed votes, each apparently without a conscience involved. Michael Flynn's honesty will hopefully bring out all of the ugliness and corruption the government has been creating. While we wait to witness the next dirty play, I am praying for galactic rescue, God Save Us, please.

Yes, it was a super moon, larger than usual and golden in color. An astrologer friend remarked that people will be revisiting major life issues from 1982 for the next year. Two of the people reading her post replied I was a toddler that year I don't have any memories or issues from that time. I was in my early 30's and quickly identified with the statement.
I sense world changes being triggered at this time and reviewed the global scene from 1982. Michael Jackson released his record breaking album Thriller. Commodor computer launches and ATT agrees to break up it's monopoly in 1982. The first computer virus infected an Apple computer.
The US midwest had record breaking cold winter. Let's see if these issues come up during the coming year?

Blessings on this All Soul's Day! Let us affirm the continuity of life in all dimensions, We are One. The increased clarity that appears to have been delivered by a beautiful hawk visitor while I was in Ocala, FL recently reminds me of this Commandment, "Thou shall have no other God before me". This includes religions and politics! Fear and greed have derailed many lives on earth. The intense emotional energy connected to religion and politics is holding us in a destructive pattern. This must be corrected if this planet is to survive.
Earth is a precious place evolving and balancing needs of life forms in great varieties. We are visitors here nurtured and supported, allowed to learn so much that isn't available elesewhere. Pray for peace so that it can continue.

Hats off to the brave women who have spoken out about the unwelcome sexual harrassment and abuse they have experienced.
Debasing one's self to demonstrate kindness and humility is a fatal mistake. I find this mis conception is held by women more often than by men. It is learned early in life via attempts to bring harmony, peace and good will from others. "Be Nice" frequently introduces the thought that being fair and honest about one's own needs and wants is selfish and wrong. Somewhere the notion that everyone can rise and succeed is twisted into "nice girls keep quiet and let others have their way or go first." I've realized "be nice" is a nasty code for debase yourself.
Honesty and open negotiations can empower all people. We need not accept competition and dominance, winners and losers, as the only way of living.
My favorite shoe store and hair stylist are nearby too. My friend tells me this is a recovery house and I believe her. I experience waves of gratitude at unscripted times and know I am blessed.
I have a "can't miss it" scar on my face. Skillful skin cancer removal brought it about. During my 65 years in this skin suit, I have grown several other scars intermittently.
They are concealed by clothing. No one knows they are here so I don't deal with questions or comments about them. I might talk about them but if so I would feel the need to show them too and that would be socially unacceptable. This scar can't be overlooked, ignored, hidden or denied. I prefer it to any tattoo I've seen
The surgeon tells me once this new scar has time to heal it will blend in with the normal lines on my face. I must create some interesting stories about it. A pirate version with swords because I live in Blackbeard country, a victim/martyr version because people relate to those stories, and a savior story because it was my childhood favorite. I expect to cherish and enjoy this revealing scar for as long as it remains with me..
The new moon has me reflecting. How does darkness do that? It opens rooms of ourselves to us much like a Hitchcock film, discreetly exhibiting us in a scene that has been overlooked until now. My recent eye exam tells me I can see very well when I chose to.h
The thought of seeing more in darkness brings my awareness to the various camouflage trappings I get distracted by and lost in. Time is a lie, we use it for companions focused on their goals and needs, and we confuse ourselves about our true thoughts, feelings, needs and goals.
June 22, 2017
When I find negative patterns repeating in my life I ask, how they can serve a good purpose; then listen for an answer. The honest answer brings greater insight than I perceived prior to asking about it. In the case of a dishonest answer, sarcasm etc, I dismiss it and ask again. When more understanding is gleaned, calm and relaxation return to me. My current goal is to gain the benefit of such instances without labeling them as negative in the first place.

Health issues have kept me from my writing the last few days. My fur baby, Schatzi was attacked by fire ants and has had a serious issue with his rear leg. Today it finally showed signs of starting to heal. We dote on and care for our fur family just as we do our humans in need.
Today I have been saddened by several incidents of violence on the planet. I have asked everyone to Pray for Peace until it is achieved. The pollution spewn about the environment is another source of violence that I pray we will bring to an end for all time.
June 14, 2017
Faith holds us, Love lifts us and Hope leads us.
The violence acted out today requires compassion and prayers for peace on earth.

Compassion is the heart of Buddhism.
All beings suffer, why judge any?
Generous acceptance of life includes eating, working and sharing.
No life form exits to consume itself. We are here for each other.
Be Kind in all times.

Mars in Cancer, my natal 7th house where Uranus resides. Relationships form and dissolve quickly for me. I have known many very intimate bondings but the timing and duration of them seems out of my hands in each situation. Something powerful brings us together and takes us apart. There is a sense of misson or purpose at work but I haven't always recognized it while engaged. The opportunity to explore my thoughts and feelings combines; wonder, joy, creative expressions as well as pain, frustration and confusion. Today I saw an oncologist for the first time. We discussed surgery. Oh I am confident I will survive and heal this time. The experience has rung a loud but comforting bell for me. Two thirds of this incarnation has gone by. What is it that I still want or need to do? Embrace the Tao and Be.
June 11, 2017
Popping a blister, the pain and pressure are immense. We instantly wish it hadn't happened. Grabbing the site to end the pain is natural.
Allowing the pain to release is beneficial.
Now healing can begin.

you really want? To be a small egocentric entity full of miseries and sufferings, a slave of illusory sense pleasures or to realise that you are the formless, timeless and ever free consciousness,
always content, happy and peaceful?"
~ Swami Nityamuktananda
5/292017 Memorial Day Recognition
In memory of those who passed due to violence and wars and the loved ones who mourn their passing, I respect today's remembrance. I can imagine our planet without wars and violence so easily. Then I recall the changes, progress we have made in the human existence, and see how suffering those horrible conditions broke new ground for the betterment so many times. It's as if this planet must continue to compete and strive and offend others, in it's DNA, embedded deeply in the earth psyche. Seeing the reality with some perspective of transcendence brings forth compassion rather than disgust and sorrow.
So exactly right! How and when one transforms is part of the mystery. It can't be scheduled or manipulated. Genuine Self always arises at the perfect time in simple ways. The Soul responds with Yes, while ego responds with Wow! Yes is an embrace, wow is a separation statement.
5/7/17 Avoid the bait, hold out for a better offer It's more merciful than debating. It's ok to say NO!
Suffering without compassion helps no one.
5/5/17 Grasping the assurances coming from unlikely sources today. We are loved unconditionally always. Our wisdom is awakening collectively and we are accepting the truth that none are lost. We are the ones we've been waiting for. Share yourself today!
