Daily Quote: January 23, 2011

‎Today I'm feeling gratitude for all the deceptions and misconceptions my well-meaning teachers (parents, teachers, counselors, etc.) tried to incorporate into my life for me. I've realized they were often misperceptions that no doubt worked for them but really just didn't belong in my life. I love my teachers -- for they meant me no harm; but I gratefully decline their misplaced lessons. Share this post :

Daily Quote: January 22, 2011

Am I wearing a lot of masks or just many, many hats? Do I have Attention Deficit Disorder or am I just too multi-faceted for their own comfort? Are these mood swings or am I just progressing nicely? Clinically depressed or normally melancholy? Wow; methinks their concerns are too much with me! Share this post :

Daily Quote: January 21, 2011

Being sacred, I think, can be achieved by treating myself as an altar. Forget all about my physical altar – the one in my house – and forget all about the ego games I play and ceremonies I play and thoughts I bandy about. I can be my own portable sacred altar -- moving hither and yon in my Earth Suit. Share this post :

Daily Quote: January 20, 2011

Today I'm navigating uncharted, freelance nonfiction literary waters; ghost writing up a storm and loaning my talents to strangers. My ego hates me writing without a byline; but I think it's great practice for bigger and better things. Besides, what does my ridiculous, fear-mongering ego know? It knows squat; that's what it knows. Share this post :

Martin Luther King, Jr.

"When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice." -- Martin Luther King, Jr. Share this post :

Daily quote: January 16, 2011

Let's face it. Every so often, it's wise to just put on the brakes, slow down, maybe even come to a complete stop, pull off the road, take a deep breath, and look around at what's in front of you. How have things changed and where are you going next? Bring clarity to the here and now; let go of the then and went; and integrate it all into something that actually works. Share this post :

Comment on Facebook from Sal Rinauldo

"I had trouble posting on the Blog but here is what I wasted to say, The way your post started off reminded me of a quote I came across recently by Wayne Dyer, “Maxim for life: You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.” I would alter the quote just a little and say You get treated in life the way you teach the Universe to treat you."

My response: Yes, people will treat me exactly the way I expect them to treat me -- so I guess you could say you've "taught" them to do that. I've seen this notion played out over and over again in my own life.

But I don't believe I have to teach the Universe a thing. It knows me better than I think I know myself. And it will mirror back to me anything I put into it in the way of thoughts, prayers, or expectations -- including misery.

-- Focus on unhappy things ... the universe without a doubt will provide me with opportunities to be unhappy.

-- Focus on dreadful body issues (e.g. weight, aging, disease, hitherto unknown to mankind aliments, etc.).

-- Focus on fear, and fearful situations will present themselves over and over and over again.

Clear yourself of the rubbish you have been taught about your terrible lot in life, the reasons you should expect bad things to happen, and the notion that good things will only come to you if you behave in a commendable manner (the way you're supposed to behave according to "them") -- but that those good things will only come to you after physical death and in galaxy far, far away (heaven? hell?)

Oh, and by the way, the ego knows all about this and often uses the negative thought system to rail against us and assure that the things we put into the universe are fouled. This is how your ego operates against us.

What this all means is that with practice (minute-to-minute, daily, weekly) we can use our own and the universes's co-creative abilities to make the world we want. Share this post :

How's Life Treating YOU?


How's life treating you? How are you treating life?

The way you "treat" life will be reflected back to you from the universe. Maybe not immediately, but soon.

Getting well can seem like such a slow process, but remember that:

  • If you're slowly filling with self-love and denying the self-loathing -- you're on the fastest track to wellness
  • If you're permitting positive thoughts to land within -- even if just for a second -- each time they land they will push out a bit more of the negativity
  • If you're witnessing the stories from your past as just that -- stories, and nothing more -- then you can be released from the impact of their energy

The universe has only one story; BANG! You're here and then you're gone in a flash.

That flash, and all the supposed time and space in between, is comprised of joy.

Anything you experience that does not resonate with that joy is an illusion created by your small ego mind.

Turn away today from all those illusions of fear and doubt TODAY and bask in the Real Truth.

The truth that you are exactly where you are supposed to be today.

Getting well may seem like such a slow process -- but it is happening in the exact right speed and manner for you.

Be glad for that -- be happy.

That happiness, too, will be reflected back on you.

Missing in Action?

Me: Missing in action? Nope. Sometimes I just have to completely step back and be a witness to my own minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day existence. Not so much to say during these crucial times. Singularity of purpose requires total down time at times. It's all good and it's all part of letting go. Share this post :

Daily quote: January 8, 2011

"Everything I look upon today is divine. Anything that seems to lack divinity has been in someway tainted by the Great Sourpuss and Denier: "ego" -- mine or the collective ego of woman- and man- kind. How could anything created from the fabric of universal Oneness of God/dess be anything but perfect? How could you? How could I? Share this post :

Daily quote: January 6, 2011

"I'm looking at all the pretty pieces of form surrounding me today -- nice home, beautiful friends, lovely clouds in the gorgeous blue sky -- and thinking it's so easy to be part of it all without becoming too engaged or distracted. My years of daily practice with the silence is really beginning to pay off! How totally cool is this? [Of course, as you know, I DO HAVE MY DAYS OFF DAYS!]" Share this post :

‎"I have proof that time can be collapsed. Went to sleep a minute ago; here it is seven hours later. Collapsed so much that I'm still bleary-eyed and my tail is bushed rather than bushy. Oh rats, now I have to enjoy my utterly fantastic life fatigued! WHAT KIND OF GOD/DESS WOULD ALLOW THIS, a scruffy, restless sleep at best!? " Share this post :

Daily quote: January 4, 2011

‎"Some days things may seem to be off, disparate, moving slow, or make no sense at all. During these times it's critical that I just witness my feelings without engaging any stories of doom or gloom that may arise. My ego is puffed up and ready to spring. It's all in the hands of God/dess and has nothing at all to do about ME." Share this post :

Daily quote: January 3, 2011

"Witness nostalgia as energy from the past -- and know that it is in part the ego trying to distract you from today's task of being joyful. Do not let it bring you too high or too low. Since the past is gone, the memories are just an illusion. Treat them like an old Seinfeld episode. Fun, but not worth losing sleep over." Share this post :

Daily quote: January 2, 2011

"It's really simple. There is only One. Anything outside of The One is either a fabrication, an illusion, or an added component that is seemingly necessary for a good life. It is not necessary. Only the One is necessary. It's really that simple. Meditate, embrace the stillness, witness distractions without judgment, and be free." Share this post :
