It's Easy to Love

it will never feel good to judge or criticize another. it will never feel good to look at another and label or categorize them in a negative way.

it will never feel good to see another as separate and apart from you! and that's exactly what you do when you look at them and put them in all sorts of conceptual boxes.

it's unnatural to our being to do anything other than love.

if you ever pay attention to how you feel in the moment you are thinking thoughts contrary to love and appreciation for another being, you will FEEL the discord within yourself. you will FEEL the separation you're creating. you will FEEL the boundaries you are creating within our inherent unity through the thoughts you are thinking.

it's utterly intolerable to not love someone if you're sensitive to your inner environment.

love is the most natural thing there is. it flows ever so freely and abundantly within us and it's only goal is to pour itself out into everything around us.

love is the easiest thing there is to feel.

because it's what we are.

and anytime we think thoughts contrary to it...we limit and constrict the flow of this intoxicating energy.

Choose Love.

Be Love.

Magic Happens

I woke up this morning with a sudden urge to fly out to London. That was followed by an urge to go see some friends at my old job.

I made a few stops along the way smiling at the words on the magazine cover, and the words in the flyer posted on street lights, knowing full well that I'm always in the company of pure magic.

Things have been going amazingly well, the right words finding me, the right person with the right name coming into view...everything just carries on in an unpredictable way all the while maintaining its magic and warmth.

And lately everything's just been falling into place in the most elegant of ways. Solutions appearing before there's even a problem. Answers coming before I've even formulated the question. A beautiful groove is making itself a part of my moments.

I got to my destination and we did what we usually do when we get together. We laugh. We talk. We share. We play the movies in our heads for one another. Poo flinging Monkey's, stoner movies, hawaii, and dancing animated creatures all made the conversation list.

Then it happened. The loveliest thing I ever get to witness and be a part of in this life. Magic. One of my love shines found out she was the recipient of an unexpected scholarship. Just like that, the tone of the day got even higher than it already was. Her joy and disbelief turned themselves into tears while her words followed up with "it just feels like it's too good to be true".

It's too good NOT to be true!

Everything to me is an affirmation of just how good life is. And when life drives me to walk into scenes like that, scenes that are heart warming to begin with, but end up becoming MORE than anticipated, my heart just reaches new places in appreciation and total love of this beautiful life.

I'm so thankful for these moments.
I'm so thankful that I got to be a part of someone's excitement.
I'm so thankful life gives me so many opportunities to truly feel the magic of everything here.

I'm equally thankful that the volume button on my laptop just decided to work.

Magic happens. ALL the time!

deeply in Love,
- me

I can't stop thinking about you, and it feels good!



i went out for a nice hot cup of goodness with a lovely friend last night, only to look into my saucer of soy goodness and remember my I Am Thriving vegan cream of broccoli experience at Cafe Gratitude.



I can't stop thinking about that place. And it feels really good to think about all the possibilities.

i'd LOVE to open a place like that. i'd LOVE to materialize my knowing into an environment of warmth and plenty serving not only delicious food, but delicious energy. WHOLE service. a place that embodies everything i know and writes it up on the walls.



MY LIFE IS A PICTURE OF MY ATTITUDES.
MY LIFE IS A PICTURE OF MY THOUGHTS.

a place that reminds you and refreshes your being just through the names on the menu.


I AM JOYFUL
I AM GLORIOUS
I AM CHARMED
I AM OPEN
I AM INSPIRED

I AM LOVE


i spent all of my saturday with someone who lived in San Fransico for 10 years. I spent the majority of last night talking about how I love California and how amazing the energy of that place was. and today I caught myself looking at flights once more.

I can't get you out of my mind San Fransico and the Universe knows it.

Life is so abundant with possibilities and I love riding my dreams all the way to my glorious destinations.

Life IS a JOY ride!

My Favorite Types of Converstation

Wendy: oh for sure!

haha...

i still find the connecting on a certain energy level... fascinating


me: it's the beauty of being vibrational beings

when you think that we are just physical solid matter, the idea of simultaneous thinking doesn't make sense...like having the same thought at the same time


Wendy: as in the concept of simultaneous thinking makes sense on an energy level, not physically


me: but when you think of everything as fluid all-present consciousness, expressing itself through these energetic systems we call "bodies" then the idea that the same thought is expressed at the same time makes sense

yeah exactly


Wendy: well.. physically, we're all more or less the same (same working organs etc.) but we're vastly different in our thoughts


me: if you saw us as solid pieces of hardware, it makes no sense

we're very similar in what we think, only the sequence of thoughts is varried

like how we think our thoughts is different, but we all think the same kinds of thoughts in different arrangements


Wendy: true. the sequence of thoughts is enough to give us our each unique experience


me: exactly


Wendy: true...


me: that's what makes as relate to one another easily

we all have access to the same thoughts, we just access them in different order


Wendy: true

even on different energy levels.. you would say we have access to the same thoughts?


me: when you raise your frequency up to a certain level, you access ALL thoughts of that frequency range that have ever been thought

if you still your mind enough, you can access the thoughts Buddha thought

nothing is off limit to you

no thought is hidden from you

what you access is all a matter of what you tune yourself to


Wendy: so essentially it's which frequency we choose to tune to....


me: yes


Wendy: i can access both the most negative to the most positive thought


me: exactly


Wendy: depending on which i bring my attention to, in a way


me: exactly

just like a radio

or a tv


Wendy: hmm...


me: all radios and tv's can broadcast the same program


Wendy: right.


me: just a matter of what channel you turn them to


Wendy: that brings the whole concept of potentiality too.


me: just a matter of where you set the frequency dial to

absolutely

everything, every possibility is right now streaming for you

which possibility you access is entirely contained in what you're tuned into


Wendy: right.


me: right now, right where you are

past and future are different frequency streams

meaning, they are thoughts you think


Wendy: (haha.. i'm getting an aha moment)


me: i love those!

that's why your present moment is so powerful

it is the point at which you can access EVERYTHING


Wendy: and present is different from each of those as well?


me: the sense of presence is

meaning the space of right now

this is where you access everything from


Wendy: true.. we live in the present moment.


me: but like everything else, what you access right now can change easily


Wendy: and we interact with the world in the present


me: if you tune yourself to joy right now, the sequences of scenes your experience will be of a different feeling

exactly

right now is where you really live and interact and read energy


Wendy: definitely. i've experienced that myself too.


me: just right here and right now. that's all that's ever on your plate

yes

every possibility is here

and you can check it


Wendy: check it?


me: 'cause if in one moment you're in anger and then work your way up to joy, you'll see how everything around you changes exactly according to your own state

yeah

make note of how you experience the world and what you evoke in people when you're in a mood

the universe is always mirroring to you your own frequency

Sent at 9:38 AM on Monday


Wendy: i've definitely had days when i started being more difficult, but then made efforts to change my own internal state... and the rest of the day changed


me: so the outcome you experience when you're in joy is simultaneously existing with other outcomes you can possibility experience. just like 101.2 FM is a simultaneous broadcast to 93.9FM

exactly!


Wendy: timing is playing with me today, so i see interesting things going on the rest of the day... we'l have to see


me: and ti's always like that

you set the tone of your day

but it's not fixed


Wendy: definitely not.


me: you can change your dial at any point deliberately and as a result change what comes to you


Wendy: it's very much fluid.


me: absolutely!


Wendy: for me, i think it's most difficult to do that when i'm in the company of people that trigger certain sets of emotions.


me: that's why you pre-pave


Wendy: often because of a long history.. ex: friends from high school or family


me: meaning clean that up when you're not around them


Wendy: true. and then it'll become easier to continue that way with them around


me: meaning start practicing better feeling thoughts about them in their absence

yes, you will have tuned yourself to tune into a different aspect of t hem

we're all multi-faceted beings

meaning someone in a bad mood is going to receive you differently than someone in a good mood.

what you're feeling has nothing to do with them

it has everything to do with what thoughts you've practiced about them

so anytime you see them, you see them through the thoughts you've practiced

so naturally that's what you experience - the negative emotion

Sent at 9:43 AM on Monday


Wendy: and if all beings are able to access all thoughts, essentially, then their response to the frequency that i have at that moment with them will change as well

it's the type of interaction you bring to them, in a way...


me: absolutely

and the way the universe works

is that you'll never interact with someone who can't match how good you feel about them

meaning if you're having these positive thoughts about someone, and that someone is in a really really negative place, the two of you won't come together

like attracts like

so you'll only see them when they're in your frequency vicinity

ever have people drop out of your life? it's that. you started stabilizing in different frequencies


Wendy: that's really interesting.


me: it's a perfect design

no need to end relationships or try to mend them

when you keep yourself in check

the things that are a match to you show up

and those that are not fall away

just naturally

i'm experiencing that more and more

and i don't question it


Wendy: and it's that natural aspect of continuing on with your life... there's no emotional attachment (guilt, etc.)


me: 'cause now i know it's all about the energy or frequency i'm constantly tuning into that determines who i'm going to meet

exactly

all those practiced patterns

the clinging etc.

all of that is human misunderstanding


Wendy: it's unnecessary

right.


me: it isn't


Wendy: we enjoy making it convoluted


me: everything has a natural rhythm and freedom to it

ahhahahaha

it's true!

i was watching a documentary


Wendy: haha.. it does...

ya.. haha. i love documentaries


me: about how this type of chimp where the mother just drops off the baby chimp and takes off after a certain time

there's no attachment

there is no clinging


Wendy: it's just natural


me: there is just a total knowing and trust in the process

yeah

and we're a part of that natural knowing

we've only "convoluted" the process with our insecure concepts

"oh how can you leave me" is so utter nonsense


Wendy: right..

in essence, they've already left..

even if not physically


me: because we are all born so completely whole with all the right equiptments

it's just that, he or she was never yours to begin with


Wendy: right


me: beings come together in freedom

as independent and whole beings

there's no clinging or possesiveness in any of it


Wendy: and that's what a true relationship is


me: you don't see that kind of pattern ANYWHERE else in this universe


Wendy: right... it's unnatural. it defies how we're built and how we function


me: that's what ALL spiritual teachings try and point you toward, your freedom to just be and evolve with your natural impulses. you come into this world and you leave this world as a whole individual

exactly

it's suffocating to be held as a possession

but that's what we practice

"until death do us part"

really?

what if you grow apart?


Wendy: right..

i know!


me: what if you evolve differently?


Wendy: haha.. i've always had issues with that line too


me: hahahaha


Wendy: why shouldn't your relationship give you the freedom to evolve...

together


me: at best you can say "i'd love it if we evolve together"

exactly


Wendy: haha.. exactly

but if you don't, then that's ok


me: we have this "if i'm stuck in a rut you have to be stuck in a rut with me" mentality


Wendy: it's so true!

but it's so wrong


me: 'cause love means we suffer together!

it's insane


Wendy: why would you give someone else a negative experience that's separate from your own?


me: it's an incredibly flawed premise


Wendy: i've always thought that way too!


me: it doesn't encourage growth

everything around you is growth-oriented


Wendy: right.


me: but the relationships we practice are "let's be like this forever"

EWW LET'S NOT

let's grow! let's change! let's expand!


Wendy: haha! YES

we're constantly adapting.. no single day is the same as the next


me: exactly


Wendy: and we wouldn't want it to be that way


me: no single moment is the same as the next


Wendy: exactly


Wendy:

there's so much to say about it

it taps into the convoluted-ness that we build up.. the possession, suffering, etc.


me: totally!

and i think anyone who sort of stops and asks "does this relationship make me feel free" will find the answer

"oh but relationships are about compromise"

REALLY?


Wendy: it's like a so-called happiness defined by society.. but that doesn't fit with the individual.


me: do you see the air compromising or the ocean or the animals?


Wendy: ooh.. compromise.


me: everything here is true to its nature

to its individual nature

AND THAT'S what creates the harmony


Wendy: exactly


me: harmony comes as a result of the individual being WHOLE and true to its purpose

to its being


Wendy: definitely.


me: i can't imagine if the trees compromised themselves or the ocean compromised its true nature to accommodate something else


Wendy: it would be a wacky world.

God I love you ALL


i have the most amazing beings in my view. incredible beings who are pushing out the boundaries of “physicality” paving the glorious and bright road of things to come. beings challenging the idea of fixed-ness and deliberately embodying new ways of defining this reality and everything that appears within it. beings manifesting the unthinkable! beings doing their voodoo two-point touching magic to your delightful wonderment. beings demonstrating for all eyes that THIS life is NOT as has been taught to be. beings quantum leaping into dimensions of limitlessness eagerly and readily. beings shedding the shackles of limited thought and embracing the expansive beauty of the Infinite within.

marvel at your-Self. you are AH-MAZING! and i am thankful beyond words for what you're unveiling.


we are the rebels jumping off the leading edge!

All in a dream, all in a dream

extra, extra! Aurora is taking over the planets!

i was watching an eight hour presentation that was talking about the planetary shifts (or likely galactic shifts) of current times which are causing Aurora Borealis to be seen by places near the equator.

up until this decade, the light show was concentrated in the north and south poles only. and what's fascinating is, is this display of gaseous artistry occurs on other planets too. rad!

and while i love the idea of Sun spots actually being black holes, hollow planets, tetrahedron power crystals, jupiter igniting into a second sun, and space travel through black-hole-portals, i laughed more at the symbolism.

our world. our universe. our galaxy. our Mind. our making. nothing is as final as it's said to be. so the more you chill out and take it easy, the more you're a part of the smooth transition of the times.

everything is energy. everything is flow. everything is connected at its singularity point. you can relax and be a part of it, or you can do the freak-out dance and disturb your own equilibrium. in any case, it's not personal. what you think and how you take in all vibrational data affects you first and foremost. reality is as you choose to experience/interpret it regardless of the collective movie being scripted.

and funnily enough, as you open yourself up and trust the intelligence of this design, you'll no doubt be flying shotgun in the magic of the times.

right into space. right through this space.

these are amazing times. we're making fantastic fireworks!

Union

The Union of Shiva and Shakti (from Amritanubhav)

I offer obeisance to the God and Goddess,
The limitless primal parents of the universe.

They are not entirely the same,
Nor are they not the same.
We cannot say exactly what they are.

How sweet is their union!
The whole world is too small to contain them,
Yet they live happily in the smallest particle.

These two are the only ones
Who dwell in this home called the universe.
When the Master of the house sleeps,
The Mistress stays awake,
And performs the functions of both.

When He awakes, the whole house disappears,
And nothing at all is left.

Two lutes: one note.
Two flowers: one fragrance.
Two lamps: one light.

Two lips: one word.
Two eyes: one sight.
These two: one universe.

In unity there is little to behold;
So She, the mother of abundance,
Brought forth the world as play.

He takes the role of Witness
Out of love of watching Her.
But when Her appearance is withdrawn,
The role of Witness is abandoned as well.

Through Her,
He assumes the form of the universe;
Without Her,
He is left naked.

If night and day were to approach the Sun,
Both would disappear.
In the same way, their duality would vanish
If their essential Unity were seen.

In fact, the duality of Shiva and Shakti
Cannot exist in that primal unitive state
From which AUM emanates.

They are like a stream of knowledge
From which a knower cannot drink
Unless he gives up himself.

Is the sound of AUM divided into three
Simply because it contains three letters?
Or is the letter 'N' divided into three
because of the three lines by which it is formed?

So long as Unity is undisturbed,
And a graceful pleasure is thereby derived,
Why should not the water find delight
In the floral fragrance of its own rippled surface?

It is in this manner I bow
To the inseparable Shiva and Shakti.

A man returns to himself
When he awakens from sleep;
Likewise, I have perceived the God and Goddess
By waking from my ego.

When salt dissolves,
It becomes one with the ocean;
When my ego dissolved,
I became one with Shiva and Shakti.

Jnanadev (1275 - 1296)

i can read

i asked a question this morning and then decided the answer. then a beautiful friend sent all her beautiful friends a link that began this chain of smile-evoking pictures.
oh it is everywhere!


Those notes you wrote me
I've kept them all
I've given a lot of thought of how to write
you back this fall
With every single letter in every single word
There will be a hidden message about a
girl that loves a boy
:)





hey THESE look familiar! :)

I'm making it all up

The more you think about any subject, the more you focus upon it, the more you become convinced of its realness. “This is the way it is!” you exclaim.

Anytime you focus on a thought, you draw more thoughts of that same frequency to yourself. So the story gets bigger. The content gets more elaborate. It gets more complex. It starts to seem like you're finding some deep hidden truth. It starts to seem like you're uncovering some hidden secret. But what you're actually doing is creating a truth.

Anything you focus upon, any thought you repeatedly think, becomes encoded in your being. It becomes part of your way of seeing this pool of neutral vibrational information. There are no facts. There are no truths. There are only thoughts you have repeatedly thought. There are only thoughts you've programmed yourself with. There are only thoughts you've tuned into to the point of creating a network of thoughts of like frequencies that you now look through.

How do I know this to be true? I don't. I don't know anything. Take away thought, and I'm left standing naked. Empty. Unknown. This is only the model of reality that I'm creating. These are the thought-frequencies that I'm gathering around myself. Are they real? Are they pointing to a universal truth? Nope. There are no universal truths. Only thoughts each being thinks into a truth. How do I know? I don't.

But I'm having fun telling the story of reality this way!

"You're a MOST suitable suitor for her"

i re-write some of my favorite songs to have them sound more empowered, more true to the real you, more true to the magnificent miracle that you really are. i talk to the music. out loud. don't question my crazy. it's what makes me, me. i just want to make the song feel better. i want the words to say, to speak of how worthy you are, how deserving you are, how amazing you are, how dazzling you are, how powerful you are, how utterly delicious you are...JUST as you are.

i want every word that ever comes out of the beings in my view to reveal the wonder of their infinitely glorious being-ness. true story. your ownership of your Light is the most delicious thing to take in. that's true upliftment. that's true empowerment.

it amazes me just how "natural" we've made our tendency to self-depreciate. it's amazing to me just how well we've trained ourselves into tolerating thoughts that diminish the power of our inner light. sometimes it's just a passing phrase, something we've said thousands and thousands of times. some self-effacing thought we've conditioned ourselves to believe is just part of being human. something we say casually and nonchalantly.

but that energy, that frequency, that practiced thought which implies that you are less than, that you are not worthy of, or that you are incapable of or undeserving of, is exactly the very frequency that pinches you off from feeling the full force of the bliss-filled love that you truly are. every dis-empowering belief that lurks is saying something completely untrue, it is saying something that only serves to pinch you off from your Inner Self.

Love is the Sole Reality, and if in any moment you are feeling anything less than that for your very being and everything that extends thereafter, there is only one reason. it is the very thought you entertain and may have even convinced yourself is normal that is at the root of your seeming disconnection.

You are Love in every way. and it is total ecstasy when you let That flow through you. and your allowing that is the most important part of "being human".

in Love,

the temples of magic

though this life is abundant with visible magic and invisible magicians that meet me around every corner, i need go no further than these physical bodies to be fascinated with the entirety of this brilliant design.

life and the experience of it starts with these bodies...but it's also entirely taking place WITHIN them also.

everything about the human body fascinates me. how did it come to be? this brilliant gathering of cells that register vibration the way that they do...this brilliant gathering of trillions of living cells that first began as just a single cell...this gathering of light that appears as this palpable solid thing...how did all of this bubble into being?

i have these eyes that are so well designed to allow me to see dimensions and depths of colors in such an elegantly constructed way that i forget that what's before me is all vibratory information. that all i'm seeing is a light show of varying degrees. i remember standing at the top of a mountain not long ago, taking in the gorgeous view of the trees that descended below me. i remember looking up at the sky and feeling like i had accomplished something. something big. and in that moment, i wasn't appreciating that i had eyes to see, to take it in. it didn't even occur to me to ponder what it was i was really looking out at.

but right now when i look back at that memory and so many others, that is all i can think of. i HAVE these amazing things called "eyes" on this funny gathering of light called my "head", and it is because i have them, and because they are the brilliance that they are, and because there is this funny gooey thing called a brain inside my head, that i get to take in so much of this delicious life.

all vibration. all frequency. all light. all MAGIC i say!

ears that register a wide range of sounds. tongues that differentiate flavors, a mouth that salivates for all things sweet and sour. teeth that chomp and nibble at all things delicious...including ears.

there is so much that these bodies do, so much that they carry on in such an effortless way that it's easy to forget that the magic of life begins before you even see an outside world. electrical firings. cells communicating. frequency receivers and broadcasters.

what brilliant organic devices are these things?!?

that everything is being constructed the way that it is...that everything is being projected in my own consciousness...the way the brain is assimilating all information...the way fluids are colliding and the way cells are morphing and registering frequencies...the magic starts at home deep within these brilliant temples of light!

life amazes me in ways i can't describe. but the amazement can only arise because there is a body to allow me to process things in such light...

it's all so pretty-full and rad!

"Statistically, the probability of any one of us being here is so small that you'd think the mere fact of existing would keep us all in a contented dazzlement of surprise." Lewis Thomas, Physician and Essayist (1913-1993)

quick, gimme a high-five for being as dazzling as you are!

in Love,

Brighter than Aurora

i'm swinging with a star
while listening to the moon
as she sings to me
that all to familiar tune
i'm dialed in
i'm turned on
and i'm letting it all come on through
as i watch it crash right into you

i'm getting everywhere with you

there are moments i wonder how it is that love can speak to me and reach me all the ways that it does. sky and stars. words and images. gestures and all the right phrases. endless magic orchestrated and coordinated. all in the details. all telling a story to my eyes.

this thing is such an elegant dance choreographed across unbounded distances. using every body to deliver the sweet comfort-filled message in just the right time and in just the perfect way. it touches me. deeply. it warms me. from the inside.

and the rest of it is so much more than "telepathy". it's so much more than anything i've ever known or witnessed. it's just so much more.

just...just...just...

i so love the way it ALL crashes into me...

this design thrills me to no end. i'm thankful to know what i know. i'm thankful to have the ears to hear and the eyes to see. i'm thankful that i'm getting to experience the magic in the way that i am. how it fills my being is beyond words. how it colors my moments is beyond description. the way the littlest things arrange themselves to keep me smiling, the way the right words are spoken from someone else's lips, the way and the precise timing of the many things that show up, often leaves me sighing deeper...and the icing of it all is knowing with certainty it is THIS magical to your eyes also.

this dream is for swooners.

my heart adores That which delights in our joy. my heart adores That which revels in our happiness.

the light of love shines. for you stand in the eternal brightness all ways. you are whole and divine just as you are...where ever you are. and you are adored by That which pours through all.

inside the Love,
-me

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 remem...
