InLightenment & InPowerment

nustarThis amazing photo of our Sun was taken by NASA’s NuSTAR telescope. Seeing it catalysed many thoughts, but the most significant was how just as the Sun powers all life on Earth, the kind energy that we surround ourselves with is what dictates the conditions that determine the quality of our lives. Just as the world would freeze and die without our solar power source, the human body, heart and spirit suffers, shrivels, and fades away without the continual exposure to the sounds of Love that rebirth Light.

May today be a celebration as you freely express gratitude for those who hear your ‘song’; those who see who you are; and those who lovingly remind you where the switch is that turns on your inner Light when it feels like the energy is ‘dim’. Remember that a smile, to those we care and to strangers as well, illumines all space and lights the path we share.

Turning on your Inner lights

winter solstice

Today as we celebrate the Solstice, the Sun turning to make its return to the Northern Hemisphere, my recent experiences combined with too many headlines in the day’s not-new-news, call to the awareness the words and wisdom of Lynn Margulis who said;

“To me, the human move to take responsibility for the Living Earth is laughable– the rhetoric of the powerless. The planet takes care of us, not we of it. Our self-inflated moral imperative to guide a wayward Earth, or heal our sick planet is evidence of our immense capacity for self-delusion. Rather we need to protect ourselves from ourselves.”

The challenge is that such protection begins with healing ourselves. All teachers who have ever taught of Love, light and relationships have know that we can only love others to the degree that we are willing and able to consciously love and care for ourselves.

Please take a moment to visit and consider the scientific logic that is the foundation for these thoughts. What you will find here is the location of your inner light switch. Better still is that you’ll discover the ‘technology’ that disconnects the dimmer switch and other buttons that others love to push…

Joy and the warmth of inner light to you this cold December day.

Running Shoes: Fear Vs. Scared

We can all recount experiences of happiness and sadness, times of trials and tribulations. The real opportunity is to remember without making excuses, shaming or blaming. What I find terrifying is how often so many seem to lose track of what is real in ‘real time’ and wind up forgetting what really matters in light of eternity.

Fear has the power to suck our breath away and keep it. It freezes our feet, and turns open hands into fists. It closes our eyes, plugs our noses and disconnects our bullshit detectors. Worse, I’ve seen of late how it causes us go deaf and mute. Fear is a death sentence, and when we dive into it we’re as hard to grab as a kid a fire fighter finds cowering under the bed when the house is burning. Fear churns things upside down and grinds what’s grand and good into mulch.

running shoesIt’s opposite is arrogance, ego that leads too many to fight battle they cannot win for losing. It is the root of the egonomics that have caused the current tsunami of change, something that has swamped too many who thought they could boogie board or body surf their way to calm waters.

From my shoes being ‘scared’ is a far different state. Living authentically often finds me ‘scared’, this an open and humble place. It’s when I willingly turn my life inside out, and call forth the remembrance of love that deepens the gratitude that fans the fires of courage. The apex of emotional intelligence is when something takes my breath away, love gives it back. It also provides the wisdom to know when to speak up, and yes, when to run.

When faced with physical, emotional, mental, instinctual, temporal or spiritual challenges, survival requires that we turn and head as fast as we can for high ground. It’s not the time to pick up sea shells. When life delivers a major life lessons, we pass when we willingly grow with the flow; this means moving in the same direction as the wave, not running headlong into it.

This is your lifetime.

Embrace the passed in every moment because it is the Future.

An Invitation to a Dialogue on Loving REALationships

open heart2

This is an invitation for you to make time for yourself this Sunday and to join us as we explore the logic and meaning of love, co-creating an experience of loving. It is an opportunity to experience the cure for the viral epidemic of loneliness and despair that is sweeping the world.

As light is dimming in so many places around the world, it’s time to intentionally bring our sparks and embers together and breath new life into them, making light visible. Self-understanding and compassion cut the key that unlocks fear and let us cross the threshold into a realm where conscious loving allows us to transcend hope. In this, our first Realationship Dialogue, we can begin to make a positive difference in our lives and world by discovering that we are not alone.

There is no cost to participate. Know that only if you find it meaningful and want to donate to the work, all funds go to support the BeLonging Projects,  making this program available to teachers and the children whose hands they hold, the learners who are our Future.
