Infinite Reach

I will speak to you through many voices and touch you through many hands, and with each one you will know and recognize Me.

The most practical understanding in the world to me is the spiritual one. Events arise and events fall. Circumstances form and dissolve. Through it all there you stand, existing, aware, knowing, being. This is always the point of return into Grace, getting back to your self, your being, your pure awareness of being here right now.

To let yourself be moved by appearances into forgetting the power of your very presence is to fall prey to the illusions your senses offer you. Circumstances don't matter. Attention turned outward fools you into thinking that things can happen outside of you. But they don't. Nothing happens "out there" for all that arises in the apparently external world is a shadow cast by the rich spaces of consciousness you occupy. Attention turned inward reveals to you that everything happens through you and by you, and all of it is contained within you.

In the certainty of your spirituality, you come to touch your world through many hands and speak to it through many voices. Your reach when you are at one with life and your Self, is infinite, and that is the Grace of your knowing your Self as the power that you are. You are only ever spoken to by the echoes of your own being, only ever touched by the hands that are your own. Life is you, and you are life, that is the whole dance from beginning to beginning.

Creatively Yours,

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.
