Journey into Mastery: The Integrative Wisdom of Suffering and Heartbreak in Advancing Our Soul

We are here to experience suffering, not avoid it.  Take that sentence into your heart for a moment, and see what it feels like. It’s a big statement that holds great truths and promises filled with paradox, complexity and nuance, ones that may be uncomfortable to integrate into your heart, but that, if you let in, set your soul free. We do not journey as souls to do everything we can to avoid suffering; to avoid bad and only stay on the side of good; to avoid darkness and stay purely in the light. Suffering is freely chosen as a soul as part of our spiritual evolution through many worlds of form; not as something to escape, but something to experience that serves a larger […]

Feeling, Uncertainty & Truth: Expanding Three Thresholds for this Chaotic Collective Awakening

Things are not what they seem. We have a view of reality that has been given to us, that is passed through the generations, shared through the media, from family and friends, through our work and schooling, and even through spiritual communities and books. These influences create paradigms of perception and conceptual realities we are convinced convey the truth of things; yet most, if not all, is a veil.  Awakening is not convenient to our thought bubble and identity because we must be willing to have even our most comforting ideas of self and life stripped away. And when enough space has been created through the unravelling of what is not, we can finally open to the truth of what is. I had a dream.  […]

A Crisis of Identity: Mass Formation Psychosis and the Awakening to Truth

We must have the courage to see things as they are, not how we want them to be. That is spiritual maturity, that is leadership, and that is what these times demand.  Truth is devastating to the ego that must hang on to its perceptual world in order to survive.  The push from the conditioned multitude against the mounting clear evidence for mass manipulation, oppression and corruption is, at its root, existential — a crisis of identity. Accepting the hard, disturbing truths is a death blow to the limited, false self that survives by believing imaginary or false things convenient to its own survival. Akin to the submissive, don’t-speak-up child who, in order to survive, must assume his abuse is for his own good, the […]

Evolving from Fear and Division to Our Limitless, Loving Self: The Heroic Path of Soul Ascension

Evolving from Fear and Division to Our Limitless, Loving Self: The Heroic Path of Soul Ascension

Do not fear death. For it’s only in embracing death that you can truly embrace life. Find beauty in its quiet depths, the still sweet surrender, yours and others, so you may find beauty in life. Doing so, you open to all possibilities, versus only the ones fear creates room for. Death is the great portal to life. When we understand this, we remember that, like time, it is a great illusion; that there is no such thing as death, but simply transitions in consciousness and experience. We are here not just to know this intellectually, but to experience it many times over before what most consider to be death — release of the body — and, in this, awaken to fuller embodied experiences of […]

A Perfect Storm: The Higher Learning and Soul Wisdom in our Escalating Global Suffering

Lifetimes of trauma and programming form distortions in identity, certain ways of being and thinking that create safety. Being a certain way, such as pleasing, tough, good or smart, compels us to want life to be a certain way, again, for safety. Inner control creates illusions of outer control, projections from fear, which make it difficult to trust and flow with the full-spectrum rhythms of life.  I’ve made it abundantly clear that the virus- and vaccine-induced collective storm is serving a perfectly timed and prophesied evolutionary purpose for us individually and collectively (see here, here & here). I want to now take my teachings a step forward with the following, which will be a stretch in understanding for some more than others.  This earth school […]

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

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. When the fragmented routines and trivialities of daily living lose their semblant ground, you may feel the warm breeze of whole groundless being whispering to build life anew upon it. When what you relied on and took for granted no longer make sense, slip from your hands, when that which you identified with, jobs and family, friends and health, cultural and moral ideas of what is so, of right and wrong, learned, limiting stories about who you are, when all […]

The Tragedies of these Dark Times Initiate Us into a Remembrance of Love, Soul and our Human Family

The Tragedies of these Dark Times Initiate Us into a Remembrance of Love, Soul and our Human Family

Ultimately, in any given moment, we have only two choices: the Path of Love, Light and Unity, or the Path of Fear, Darkness and Separation. 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. At increasingly alarming levels we are experiencing drastic and confronting lifestyle changes, while witnessing across the globe immense human suffering and violent eruptions on Mother Earth’s land and sea. 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 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 […]
