When Your Life Just Feels Right

I have to say, the first half of 2019 has been a blurry coming together of everything I've ever dreamed of and everything I never thought to fear. All that remained un-faced in my psyche and all the potentials and possibilities I kept at bay came tumbling down. Truth stands so clear now. Stunning and thawing that not even the icy giant Neptune could ever cool me down again.

A convergence of self.  An orchestra of aliveness.  A cleansing of karmic dust. A true birth.
I'm grateful.
Luckily I have heart-and-soul family working to swoop and scoop me every which way I turn, so let it be said that to fly fast and free while in the company of pure hearts and solar spirits is exhilarating. To look right and left and see you've never flown alone and never will is a balm to my soul. 
My instagram got hacked requiring a new account altogether and I've been feeling compelled to keep myself light and nimble so that the flight to the top of the mountain and the descent back into th…

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else. 

To honor …

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour

Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality

Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.

You dance inside my chest

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art. ~Rumi

It's all about that heart-click, that little dance your heart does inside your chest. I've always wondered what that was about and what that meant. No one had to tell me it's the secret of this universe, that your heart is where dreams are born and your heart is where they are received.

That Still Small Voice

When That still small voice says wait, I wait
When That still small voice says march, I march
When That still small voice says bloom, I let my petals unfurl
and expose myself to the Sun
For as long as I am keeping presence of mind
For as long as I am in that instant beyond time
I can always hear that still small voice of Mine
With the whispers of this voice I act with perfect timing
I'm in the right place at the right time
Miracles flow from my fingertips
And I'm assured and confident in what will come
By this quiet nudging in my heart
I am lead, I am powered, and remain unmoved by the world's mirage
My phantom self subdued, I only hear That Voice
My projected world enlightened, I only feel That Voice
That Voice that is smaller than an atom
And as vast as the Cosmic Skies
That Voice that strikes like lighting
In the quiet spaces of my being
That weightless Voice that eliminates all that is heavy within me
That Voice, That I Am
When That still small voice says listen, I get quiet inside
And …
