Alchemizing Wider Spectrums of Dark into Light: The Evolution and Maturation of the Soul

Through the many faces of fear we learn the many faces of love. That is, until we are finished learning from fear, and are fully ready for love.  The evolution and maturation of the soul is a path of holding wider spectrums of dark and light without resistance. This comes from many heroic lifetimes of facing and integrating our shadows, alchemizing them into embodied gold — the crystalline light of our higher self.  Light reveals darkness. It conjures lower vibrational states and aspects — our deepest fears expressed as shame, guilt and unworthiness; parts vehemently announcing, “I don’t deserve love!” For people unready for the light, too attached they are to their suffering, they turn away like Dracula from the sun. It simply is too […]

Faith Lost and Found in Our Dying, Awakening World ~ A Poem for Humanity

When you lose faith in the world you have known, as is happening now for countless many, an ancient voice within may find your inner ear, inviting you to finally have faith in something else, the Unknown you turned from and forgot many moons ago.

In the extremity of these times, these choices have never been more evident. The future of humanity and Mother Earth depends on which path we take. It is up to us.  Life is tragic. There is no doubt.

Despite the rising apocalyptic energy, I remind myself that there is no tragedy without some form of redemptive beauty. Though that beauty may not come in the immediacy of the adversity, it eventually […]

What if these Confounding Times are like a Zen Koan Inviting Us to Awaken?

What is a peaceful word that ends with “i”? This is a koan that came to me in my dreams a few days ago. I offer this, what I call a Personal Koan, to sit with, to contemplate; to consider as an important inquiry to help you navigate these pivotal and confounding times, and your life in general. Reading further below, you’ll also discover what I call a Collective Koan, which is different from the former by only one letter. Personal Koan If you don’t know what a koan is, it’s a paradoxically complex yet simple question or riddle often given by Zen Masters to their disciples that can only be answered by going into the heart. Its confounding nature forces the seeker to abandon […]
