I am here to say, I do know how we survive this.

It is not I the individual that seeks enlightenment. It is we the collective that calls us to our real identity.

We are united as people through the journey that we share no matter the distance between. 

You Am I and I AM you and the more we deny this, the more isolation seeks us.

I AM here, as One.

You know me, We are the same. Together we survive. Together we are Oneness.

Journey to Fire Valley in Nevada

Pain is an illusion of time, an illusion that this moment lasts forever.

In showing up, the mountain moved, the stuck uncoiled and the fear subsided. It was as if God itself moved to the forefront as each chest expanded and each man contorted in the knowingness that they too are Light. They too are connected to the vastness of the universal rhythms of space and time.

Surrendering to the letting go, the unveiling of a knowingness far greater than self, each moment built upon the next. As if the cracking of what we call experience was released and forever gone. They too have climbed this mountain and stood at the peak with all its quakes and quivers. They too confronted stillness.

Renewed and free each in their own perfect symmetry as if looking from a new plateau, a higher perspective, more clarity, more resourced and more compassionate. Despite the tremors, the chaos abide, each man awakened for they exposed their truth for all to see. As they stepped out of control and into command they took flight.

Every now and then a miracle happens, you know what I mean!

The miracle that honors your very existence, embraces your unique ways of Being, catapults you beyond the normal expectations and supports a thirst and drive into the unknown. You recognize this truth, when someone so unexpected enters into your life and behold you begin to make sense.

You are awakened by the reflection of you in them and them in you. Someone unrecognizable at first glance but charged with an inner knowingness that we have traveled many lifetimes together.

Today, I honor my someone, Monica on her birthday!

You are called to Light through meditation, prayer and reflection. Draw from ancestral traditions, seek comfort in the stillness. Be guided by an inner ache that springs forth wisdom, creativity, and the still voice within. Drawn upon the Light to overcome fear, adversity, and stagnation.

It is in the Light that you are called to speak, to write, to teach and to heal.

Do your best to be open, to be active, to reflect, and to listen. Find comfort in the stillness, the void, the realms of Pure Potentiality. In the absence of “matter” and chaos we can hear the voice of God. Challenge yourself to grow beyond adversities and emerge anew ascending to the call.

Believe that it is in surrendering to the Light that the true mystery unfolds.

The healing qualities of Light, the warmth, the comfort, the insight, the vastness of human consciousness is revealed. Seek the Self as if you are part of a whole. Act in unity and solidarity. Be the Word.

Be the Light expressed through Stillness.

Unveil the mystery of what it means to be you and you will find the reflection of Me, many stars united.

Unveil the mystery of what it means to be us and you will find the reflection of All, many solar systems.

Unveil the mystery of what it means to be All and you will find the reflection of Oneness, many universes.

Unveil the mystery and reflect the qualities of Oneness: gratitude, kindness, compassion, integrity, patience, loyalty and solidarity.

I inspire you, the universe is knocking on our door. Are we listening? Can we be in the void, the vastness, the pure potentiality. Can we collectively let go, surrender and soar? Can we keep reaching, keep stretching, out of the comfort zone and experience the ache, the longing from discontent, powerlessness, a reminder of our humanity?

Collectively, we stand at the threshold of our transcendence, the caller is knocking, the door is opening and together we are called to walk through and honor the space in which we exist.  It is our birthright, our breath, our connectivity to All.

For in the vastness of Oneness you are, I Am.

The Intellectual Self asks what next?

The Emotional Self struggles to not implode.

The Spiritual Self knowingly is calm.

Be Calm

The stripping away of limitations to unveil One’s true Self, the Divine Spark of Spirit,

Soul of All existence is at play..

Connect through the Spiritual Body and bring balance to all bodies.

This is a time of great transformation.

Having Opportunities Present Endlessly

In the vastness of experience, called life we are all guided by a unique gift, Hope. It is hope that manifests out of the abundance of Oneness.

For it is not as if what is, is. What is, is opportunity, potentiality.

Hope is the key to unlock the Mystery of suffering, the ladder ascending out of chaos, the impetus for clarity in all situations and the portal to an expanded Self.

Receive the gift and know that All has purpose, endless opportunities presenting.

Just for today, let go of the concrete, the must do’s and the must haves.

Release expectations of self and others, make no judgements and keep anger at bay,

Be not complacent, idol, nor disinterested, restless, annoyed or argumentative,

Let go of the need to know, to control and to own; the imprints of greed.

Then take a walk and here the calling of what desires to be again.
