go your way

gentle as a petal on the skin
of your palms,
here i stand
as your world, as your heart
sent from the Gods of Love
and once upon a song
once upon a dreaming
we rise conceived in the depths
of an immaculate Being

and the spaces in our skin
keep a secret hidden from a world
made of thinning visions
and clumsy dreams
with faded colors lined
in the fog of restlessness

so we sit to write
of a tall tale of love
as the soul of this world
so desperately longs
to hear the melody
of a truth it has always known

and we call to this soul
and we ask:

set your sight high
upon the ceaseless flood
of God's ever expanding heart
and go only where it goes
up into the realm of luminosity
outward into that glistening field
of pure radiance
riding the formless back
of a mighty and cosmic force
infinitely reach beyond the lines
and shatter all of the boundaries
of your yester-scenes
release yourself
realize your Self

that time has come
and that time is here
for you to stand clear
in the power of your name
know your name

the message sounds
and the lines repeat

know your name
own your fate
and go your way

the words are sculpted
and the sounds are echoed
to say...

go your own way

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

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.
