Just Be

Your Light does not go out because you cry or have a melt down or throw all your sticks up in the air from exhaustion. You do not cease being the Awake-ness you are because you find yourself mangled up in thought-forms. When I get the same question posed from three different sources all before the week has even begun, I blog the answer.

Does it happen to me? Do I get out of alignment? Do I have freak-outs?

There's this really great story of a Sage who one day sits outside of his home laughing. And one of his followers confused comes and asks, "Why are you laughing?" And the Sage answers, "I just am." Another day the same follower finds the Sage sitting outside crying. Confused again he comes and asks "why are you crying?" And the Sage answers "I don't know, I just am."

To laugh, to cry, to be in love with life, to be sick of life, not one is less Divine than the other. Not one truly captures the Light that you are. Darkness and Light have no meaning. Good and bad have no meaning. Everything in this moment is perfect, whatever it is calling you to be, whether you are a happy mess or a messy mess. It is all Divine.

Do I have bad days? No. But I have no good days either. I just have this moment, and whatever I'm being in this moment. And whatever I am in this moment, however I am in this moment, it is simple and beautiful. No definition. No badness to it. No goodness to it.

Free yourself of how you think and believe your Divinity looks or should look in this moment. Free yourself of how you think and believe your Divinity should feel in this moment. Be Unconditionally Divine.

Just Be. Here. Now.

Beautiful statement. I will add that both are a huge part of our humaness, but not one defines us. both are important and is perfectly fine to feel both. Thanks so much for this post, very inspiring.

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…

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 …

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
