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.

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.

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 […]
