The Heart Diamond

What I love is the quests that come to me as I observe and ponder my world. In my ever growing circle of connections I again and again meet beautiful beings who love stones and crystals and trinkets and endow them with special meaning and power. For some reason I'm not drawn to items like that in the same way. For me it's not the gemstones, the crystlas, the rings or necklaces, or the trinkets that affect your mood or health or well-being or abundance or anything else. I prefer to be completely IN-powered, forever affirming the center of power inside myself as the sole cause of what I experience. I am about the consciousness that you are. I love admiring all the amazing jewelry and creative expression in this world but I would no more hand over my power to feel open and expansive to a gem in my hand than I would to a wild bunny hopping across the forest.

The gems, the stones, the toys are all fun, amazing, beautiful to play with and decorate ourselves with, but ultimately for me, it's about me. Take mala-beads for instance – it’s not really the beads that have the power but the energy you charge them with through your mantra’s, your repetitions, your practice and effort. For me, it’s the same with any other stone or gem – they can serve to enhance, store, hold the charge of your intentions. You can infuse and encode them with all sorts of higher energies. Kind of like the mass-storage sticks of a computer - I see the stones, the gems, the crystals of this world serving in that same way.  But ultimately it’s you who brings, anchors, and awakens to that power they symbolize or represent. It's you who activates, downloads, and uses the data stored or recorded on them. It all comes back to you.

I hold my own heart-mind as the center and power of transformation, healing, and whatever else. It's about the diamond, the indescribable unique center of power within my own Heart - it's to that I give all power to.

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.

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
