you're just not that into you

what you get has never had anything to do with him, her, or them. it always comes down to you and your relationship with you.

truth be told, it's that...

so though the catchphrase would say that it was another who was in charge of accepting, loving, and appreciating you, it's just not so. the world forever reflects your own vibration back to you. life only mirrors the essence of what you cycle within yourself.

the no-excuse truth to understanding your relationship with others is simple.

come to see the miraculous brilliance that you are, feel good about who you are and what you bring into this world, and the world and everything within it will come to reflect your corrected vision.

life adores you. you should catch up to that...

freedom's seduction

(Art: Rassouli "PILGRIM OF PASSION ")

it is the pangs of this sublime loving
minds that feast on delusions but miss

it glides deep into the marrow of my soul
and unlocks the treasure chest of bliss

it takes me to that high estate
and seals my longings with a kiss

what great love, what rapturous power
the frail and counterfeit dismiss

and this Love abounds
and its might astounds
and it lifts all off unstable grounds

fly freedom.

inherit your Self.

Your Reigning Goddess

A force of light,
Swirling through ready minds
Like a hurricane

A movement of love,
Igniting open hearts
Like lightening
Striking sand

Stunning radiance
Eternal innocence

I am
Your reigning goddess

I am the dancing elements
Underneath your feet
I am the flame
Of that eternal heat
I am your Light
And yours alone
I am a reminder
Of your unchanging home

And we are
A brilliance unmatched by any
The face of eternity
Here collapsing duality
Revealing once and again
It takes No-Time
To live in Love

I'm always Here
I'm always Now
As I forever remain
Your goodness in reign

no thought is concealed. no thought is private. for all that you believe yourself to be, by nature is expressed in and as your environment. you do not hide yourself. you cannot hide the sequence of thoughts you entertain, identify with, and accept.

for the entirety of your life, your every moment, is the child of the thoughts you keep. the outer is an exact reflection of the inner world you carry everywhere you go. so if you're experiencing scenes that are conflict-ridden know that they are only so because of the conflicting focus within yourself.

nothing that isn't in the likeness of your vibration can come to you.

this world about you is insubstantial, and its apparent realness is only in the thoughts that birthed it.

by the very thoughts you keep or abandon, you can rise beyond the celestial heights of this dream-world, or you can drag yourself down to the torment of your own doing.

it is self-created and self-perpetuated. nothing that is facing you was imposed upon you.

that is the end of it all.

turn the light on for yourself. know your power.

taste your Self.

and then go have some ice scream.

you are here now

i awoke to hear the words "i want to do this right."

my inner ear hears across vast distances.

so i whispered back "you have never done it wrong" knowing full well that the invisible wind will bring the reply on through.

the human mind reactive-ly steeps itself in ideas of rightness and wrongness. but the Greater Life sees no such things. in the eyes of the Great Beginning only your innocence shines bright.

can you see yourself through the eyes of God? can you view your untainted radiance right here and now?

have no regrets for you stand within the heart of a divine unfolding. you have no wrongs to right. you have no mistakes to fix. you have no words to take back. you have no steps to undo. no matter where you think you've been, no matter what you think you've come from, you begin anew in complete innocence right here and right now.

this moment right here is your beginning. nothing came before this. nothing!

the mental stories of past veil the brightness of your true nature. take hold of your power to Be Here and see the greatness that pulses as everything that you are. breathe your Self. cease letting limited thought define this undefinable and unlimited you.

you are much more than your thoughts of past doings allow you to be. let them fall away. stand in the immediate light of your eternal innocence.

you have never gotten it wrong. and you will never get it wrong. move and be with the sureness of your true name.

life feels soOo good!

we did it! and we're still doing it!

and it feels so good! it feels so good!

"in the not too distant time ahead
there is a way to get it done
without leaving your bed
there is a way to go to work
by using your head
it's the quirk of the network
of mind intent
just visualize
anything that you want
close your eyes
bring it up to the front
and realize.."

anything that you want can be yours at any time. there is nothing you cannot do. there is nothing you cannot be. there is nothing you cannot have.

you can live your dream. yes, you can.

life is gorgeous

what a beautiful life!

i've been carrying happiness in between my steps and seeing just how contagious it truly is.

it doesn't take much to light a heart and takes even less to spread the light.

my inbox is flooded and my heart is trying to keep up with the ever growing well of goodness in which i exist.

my moments are perfect.

no wait, they're beyond perfect.

and the voice in my head seems to be learning a different kind of language. one of love, one of joy, one of that beginningless bliss...

may it constantly remind me just how much and how deeply i appreciate every fiber of what you are.
may i be reminded of the magnificence that pulses as everything you appear to be.
may i be constantly reminded of the purity of your beginning.
may i be reminded of You and You alone.

i'm given all the space i need, all the hours i request to be the very best version of myself. and when i turn my head, a smile comes to meet me. and then when i turn again, the sweetest wonder confronts me. then when i want to just be alone, everything dissolves again.

i am blessed, and i am loved deeply, not for anything i've done in this life, but for what i am - an offspring of a benevolent kind of love.

i will spend my every moment in deep adoration of this life.

it is the wonder of all wonders and the greatness of the greatest!

in Love,

be as you are

harm cannot come to you. weariness cannot befall you. for in the power of your true nature, such things do not live.

Existence thrives. the Great Reality thrives.

don't you know who you are? don't you know what all this is? you cannot taste the invincibility of your Beginning by subscribing to the manifestations of an insecure idea.

you cannot not let appearances dictate to you what this world and all that is within it is. do not submit to the conclusions of insecurity.

you who rests higher than the highest ideas, Be As You Are. for only then will the errors you perceive melt right before your eyes.

all is well.

It's you, and me
Movin' at the speed of light into eternity
Tonight, is the night
To join me in the middle of ecstasy
Feel the melody and the rhythm of the music around you

...We can go anywhere
Go anywhere
But first, it's your chance
Take my hand
Come with me

...Feels like we're on another level
Feels like our loves intertwined
We can be two rebels
Breakin' the rules
Me and you
You and I

All you gotta do is watch me
Look what I can do with my feet
Feel the beat inside

...It's a long way down
We're so high off the ground
Sendin' for an angel to bring me your heart
Girl where did you come from?
Got me so undone
Gazin' in your eyes got me sayin'
What a beautiful lady
No ifs ands or maybes
I'm releasin' my heart
And it's feelin' amazing
There's no one else that matters
You love me
And I wont let you fall
Let you fall girl (ahh ohh oh oh yeah)
Yeah, I wont let you fall...

Forever ~ C.B. (

your warm december...

this place i'm in...the responses that come to conversations from's something more than my mind imagined.

life blesses me with a steady heart and a patient gaze in knowing that you dwell in wellness...even if you don't yet know this yourself.

it can only live your dream when you've become that dream. you can't experience your ideals from a place of lack, doubt, and disappointment. you can't meet and revel in all that you've become, when you're fogging up your imagination with worry and self-frustrations.

you defy your Self every time you doubt your dreams...every time you look at the past your mind constructs. you defy all that you have expanded into when you doubt the goodness of what confronts you in your visions and expansive projections.

the beauty of this life and your powerful place in it stands and stares you in the face...but you cannot meet its gaze or recognize it if you're busy looking at the past constructing stories of all that you've done wrong or all that that's gone wrong. you have done no such wrong. relieve yourself of such thoughts. watch the stories you weave in your mind. shift your focus. come into range.

you must always catch up to the ever-expansive Self within. all answers rest there. all satisfaction lives there. and There is where you will know love again...only in a way you have never known. a love that will stay with you until the very end. this is the love of your dreams.

catch up to your Self. forget everything else. forget everyone else. align yourself with your Self. life will floor you. for life has always dreamed a brighter dream for you than can be seen from the view of that misaligned you.

i can't even begin to describe the goodness that's lined up outside my door. ever since i started listening to the call of eternity...the good just gets smiles just get wider...and laughter finds me 'round every corner.

become your dream. be your Self. align.

know that i love you not for what you do or say, but for all that you are. what's truly more though is...God...Existence is in constant adoration of you. and IT is the only thing that deserves your loyalty and attention. IT is the source of your every fulfillment and happiness.

life is magnificent...and snowflakes await my kisses.

kiss yourself for me.

blogged from the future.
your December

i'm a love fern

a great power pulses behind every one of my cells. and i apparently sit amidst the trillions of cells without location. who am i? what's to say what i am? a consciousness, i am, so i'm told. but even this string of letters fails to satisfy. another concept offered. so many concepts offered. human. love. beauty. woman. daughter.

which of them is the real you?

"i am a love fern" is as true as all the rest.

(my rendition of a love-fern. my branches are just beginning...)

does it mean something less?

who am i before the conceptual definitions? what am i prior to all the letters we assemble together and sound in our noise making?

the buddha asked "where in your body are you?" in one of the sutras. and you have to wonder...which of these trillions of cells that make up the body carry you? which particle in motion brings to life that apparent sense of self and the story it faithfully unfolds? how are these particles different from the air particles, the earth particles, the sun particles? where in this universe are you?

life gives you no location. the stream of focus that beams out from these bodies has no beginning. try and locate this "me" in every moment and it fails to be found. so "i" and its story is malleable. for life endowed every apparent being with the ability to build this "i" any which desired way.

but no one can build you. no one can vibrate for you. no one can select the thoughts in your particular point of view. the sequence of thoughts you have thought, you have done so alone. no one else is responsible for the heights or the lows. no one can take your steps for you. all of it is your work...this beginningless you that has the power to focus through the trillions of cells...

you are so free in being that you can choose to bring to life whatever conceptual bondage you construct. sitting in this beginningless space, you can construct a past. sitting in this non-local place, you can project a future. sitting in this timeless space we've labeled "nowness" and "presence" you can create yourself.

you are your own greatest creation.

before your troubles always rests the bracket of beliefs, of concepts, you have solidified in your own mind. before your lows rest the string of thoughts you have glowed into life and then expressed.

you can be as free as your concepts allow you to be. you can be as undefined, and so unrestricted, as the thoughts you choose allow you to be.

nothing is final. there is no ending for when "i" arises, it's always just beginning. you're always at your apparent beginning.

in your inherent freedom is found that you can write the story any way you please...any time.

and life will comply.

keep standing tall

mountains are not moved by an attitude of powerlessness. from a standpoint of self-invalidation, self-effacement, you can't achieve what you long to achieve. through uttering words of failure, by accepting thoughts of short-comings, you can't sail through your scenes with ease and experience the very beauty you long to experience.

thought begets experience. there is no other builder of your moments.

so don't submit to the beliefs born of limited thought. born from a lack-full perspective, they can't carry you to the fulfillment of your perfect moments. when an undesired thought demands admission into your mind, turn away. be deliberate in what you allow to take hold of your attention. be deliberate in what you give life to. be deliberate in what you express.

distracted focus yields inconsistent outcomes. expressions of failure can't create the path of success. you can't express limitation in any way and soar into the heights of your indwelling Being. watch the thoughts you keep and accept. watch the words you let light the steps before you. resolve to light the creative and the constructive. let the lightest thought pave the path of your inner dreams. let the creative word go forth to unfold your moments in beauty and in joy.

let the full power of your Being inspire you in every moment in your thoughts, in your words, and in your deeds.

the intelligence within you knows nothing of "i will fail" and "this won't work." the fate of your moments, the fate of your every scene, is your own creation, a result of what thoughts you have given attention to.

the essence of all that you live, is the essence of all that you have thought.

to live high, you must think high thoughts. to live well, you must think thoughts of wellness. in every moment. your life is always manifest in the image and likeness of the thoughts, the energy, you hold and anchor within yourself. there is no other determining factor. all is determined within yourself.

there is no power deciding your steps. you form your own way by the thoughts you entertain, by the vibration you emanate in every scene, in every moment.

the road ahead is as you light it with your own mind. so let your mind stand tall and reach beyond the heavens of this space of limitlessness.

keep standing tall.

in Love,

staying chill: lessons from the snowman

so what's going to be the next thing you focus on to pinch yourself off from the eternally flowing source of wellness?

what excuse are you going to use in this moment to say that this whole expansive universe is not unfolding with perfection and precision?

what person, memory, event, or situation are you going to constrict your focus around, to exclaim that something is wrong with right now?

what problem are you imagining into being now?

what problematic future are you projecting right now?

beings hop from one topic to the next ever reaching for yet the next thing that just isn't working out the way that it should. and this thing becomes the reason, the excuse, to insist that this world of pure vibration is all wrong. that this moment is wrong. that this instant is entrenched with difficulty and discord.

so many causes to fight for. so many injustices to push against. so many wrongs to right. so many broken things to fix.

and yet all of these points of focus stem from the premise that...
...the very intelligence that birthed you,
...that brought you into being,
...the very intelligence that fashioned the entire universe,
...the very intelligence that manifested the trillions of cells that make up your body,
...the very intelligence that formed your brain,
...the very intelligence that made your visual cortex and all other sensory instruments so that you can perceive and participate in this environment
...the very intelligence that arises as the scenes of your life
...the very intelligence that allows you to mold it into whatever you please on holiday, and so it is up to you and only you to solve the very problems you've imagined into being.

who are you without your fights, without your causes?

and what excuses are you right now manufacturing to say that all is not well?

what you resist does persist. whatever you imagine into being will appear real. what you push against remains.

still the river of eternal joy endlessly flows. and nothing is as it appears. and even the wise snowman will melt away.

so, it's no big deal really.

carry on.

the stream of happiness...

one of the irreplaceable finds of this physical journey is the fact that there exists a happiness that IS independent of the situations and beings in your life.

this happiness flows when you’re standing bare-feet at the edge of all you know. this happiness flows when you’re standing in the center of this wilderness looking out on what appears to be the senselessness of humanity.

the stream of happiness, it is eternally flowing. even now. right now.

you can be in a state of happiness regardless of what or who stands in front of you. regardless of the apparent state of this vibratory environment you call your world.

and you come into this stream of eternal happiness through the power of your very own mental focus.

it’s always about where your attention lands. it’s always about what thoughts are grabbing hold of your attention. it’s always about where your power of focus is standing.

freedom is realizing the boundless power within yourself and then LIVING it.

freedom is lining up with your Self and experiencing once and for all that the only one responsible for where you are and how you feel, is you. nothing else. no one else.

the only one responsible for your happiness is you.

to go your own way is to steadfastly stand in the power of your Being, to choose your inherent power of focus in every moment and with every breath, and refuse to let the outer appearance of this relative world fool you into thinking that You are other than you are.

you are power. right here and right now. and you have the ability...a remarkable ability to direct your focus.

we've been fogged

when the path seems foggy, and you can't see too far may wonder what's next. what awaits?

you may look up and down, and turn yourself all around to see still that you can't see clearly what is to come.

relax. take a deep breath. and take one step. just walk yourself one step at a time...

trust. the path is laid. the means are prepared. and the next step will land you on solid ground.

all is well.
