The Source of a Tenacious and Persistent Bliss

diablogue 25 january 2016 persistent blissFor 29-years it has been an unimaginable joy to discover how Purpose let’s me recover authenticity. It directs the Flow, letting me grow even as it steadfastly forms and reforms my spirit. purpose, continuously reshapes space and time, allowing meaning to carve sacred places in which I am free to lovingly express my heart, ideas and spirit in measurable ways.

What is your Message?

31 march 2015The walls of of Tel Aviv offer me constant reminders that the gift of life is short. Many of the thoughts these artists offer make me want to unwrap every breath, and drive me to make each word meaningful. But they also remind me that writing on walls is a lazy way to communicate; that taking positive action is the heartbeat of making our lives matter in ways that are beneficial and measurable.

Everyday situations faced in this country, never mind what’s reported on the news, compel me to remember that happiness is not a continuum. A fleeting moment of bliss is a point of grace. I’ve stopped confusing joy with a smiley face, and understand that it’s being free to experience and express what ‘Is’ in any moment. Sharing this journey, my life, is riding the Rainbow of Love, the path is a constant arc that carries me into the eternal unknown. Walking this narrow middle path transcends hope for it allows me to ask others to hold my hand through the inevitable moments of self-doubt, and the divine carries me through despair whenever my emotions erode my ability to speak (yes, it happens). The Logic of Love that’s been identified in the architecture of the Mereon Matrix, a ligature that connects inside and out, science and spirit, is a method that is meaningful. By connecting local and global and uniting physical and spiritual, it bonds emotional and temporal, and enjoins thinking and intuition.

How we live our lives is our message. Every day my best efforts are to make what is meaningful simple. I’m the first one to admit that there are times when I miss the mark, but far worse, are the opportunities when I don’t even come remotely close to the target. But awareness is what lets me forgive myself, apologise to others, and change.

What is your Message today? How will others learn from your method?

Living the Quest or the questioning

there comes a timeAnd of course the ‘kicker’ in living our best answer is knowing when that answer is no longer valid. This is when we have to find the courage to take the time we need to ask the question again or find the new question. In this we are free to rediscover, speak and live our renewed answer.

Karma and Cosmic Poker

royal flushI just received an email from “LinkedIn” that brought a sad smile to my face. The notice was advising me that a friend had endorsed me for the life skill, ‘strategic planning’. Even in the face of sadness, joy was called forth from deep within as I remembered and appreciated how the bond of our friendship remains true, its truth etched in many memories. His endorsement takes on even deeper meaning for our friendship was born in a place that I dearly loved, but an all-inclusive toxic pollution made it unhealthy for me to stay there. Our connection, established during a short season of my life, remains despite the profound personal crisis that required a sad yet necessary ending.

Thinking about this endorsement called the beauty, strength and power of a Promise to conscious awareness. With it two questions were raised:

  • How often do others want us to compromise or abdicate commitments that we’ve made, to ourselves, or more importantly, to the Divine?
  • Why do we surrender our authenticity, and let others inscribe the book of our life to author our life story?

The answers it called forth were equally complexly yet simple. While many of us suffer from feeling terminally unique, ‘Terminal Uniqueness’ will not be written on any of our death certificates. Truthfully, I’ve made and required enough compromises and have suffered enough broken promises to last a thousand lifetimes. Enough is enough. No more.

Strategic planning is a life skill that must be matched by tactical planning; that must be followed by fearless operational mandates that are followed to the letter, especially when our lives and our Reason for living are at risk.

  • Morals, noble values and spiritual righteousness have nothing to do with being right.
    Living in love is never about bad-mouthing or making someone else wrong.
  • Standing upright in harm’s way is a spiritual competence that must be followed by coherent motion, not emoting.
  • Growth, love in action is first heard in the clarity of Love’s intent; but when our voice is ignored or denied, moving is what permits us to survive and indeed, thrive.

In many ways such skills are those found in a great poker player, which I am clearly not! Masters at card games hide and never show or tell. They understand the risk of ‘holding’, and know that if they blink when attempting to support a bluff or elongate an illusion, their run can collapse in an instant.

The Universe neither bluffs nor blunders, and neither should we. Pretending is to live a lie. It causes our health to fail, relationships to fall apart, and decades of Purposeful work to break down in an instant.

Living is about honouring the pain, and doing what needs to be done to get over it, healing to get on with it. Pain is a lesson, not the Course and is unnecessary to experience true gain.

The Logic of Love is the game changer. Our task is to harness the clarity, embrace the courage, and put on the yoke of love with others who share our Purpose so that with wisdom so that the Future can unfold as it must.
