Show me who you are...

And I'll show you the play of your warring stories.

One of the greatest gifts of spiritual inquiry, of going inward and committing to a lifelong journey of self unraveling is that you enter a space where everything can't help but be completely transparent. Transparency in life, in your being, in your every endeavor is a valuable currency - a way to exchange a clearer current of life with your heart and with your surrounding. If you're willing to go inward daily and ask: who am I being? What standard of ideals am I expressing? How true am I being to my heart, to my soul? - then you are living your life with a level of authenticity and clarity that will keep you shining like a bright beacon in a field of darkness.

I again and again have been coming across what happens when things are kept hidden, overlooked, buried, unexplored, and ignored. When that is your strategy in life or in work or in any place in this game of being human, somewhere in your timeline will be a cracking point, a point in which instead of willingly processing and having things inside of you come out in the open for processing and clearing and cleansing and refreshing, you'll be forced by your inner forces to crack open from the inside out. Where everything you had pocketed, side-stepped from processing, or suppressed forces itself out of you and in plain sight playing itself out in your mind, in your relationships, and in every context of your waking life.

There's two ways to live life - one is to willingly go inside yourself and do some internal house-keeping on a regular basis. The other is to ignore and avoid, until you're forced into some sort of confrontation where the forces you had been collecting inside yourself come head to head and battle it out not only in your psyche but through the relationships you have and the environments you are a part of. You can evolve and unfold yourself intentionally or you can evolve and unfold yourself through a recurring theme of crisis.

It's been my experience that intentional evolution is much more enjoyable and expansive than crisis evolution, which tends to be shocking and painful  to some parts of your being.

The choice of which current to change and transformation you ride, is entirely hours.

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 …

When Your Life Just Feels Right

I have to say, the first half of 2019 has been a blurry coming together of everything I've ever dreamed of and everything I never thought to fear. All that remained un-faced in my psyche and all the potentials and possibilities I kept at bay came tumbling down. Truth stands so clear now. Stunning and thawing that not even the icy giant Neptune could ever cool me down again.

A convergence of self.  An orchestra of aliveness.  A cleansing of karmic dust. A true birth.
I'm grateful.
Luckily I have heart-and-soul family working to swoop and scoop me every which way I turn, so let it be said that to fly fast and free while in the company of pure hearts and solar spirits is exhilarating. To look right and left and see you've never flown alone and never will is a balm to my soul. 
My instagram got hacked requiring a new account altogether and I've been feeling compelled to keep myself light and nimble so that the flight to the top of the mountain and the descent back into th…

That Still Small Voice

When That still small voice says wait, I wait
When That still small voice says march, I march
When That still small voice says bloom, I let my petals unfurl
and expose myself to the Sun
For as long as I am keeping presence of mind
For as long as I am in that instant beyond time
I can always hear that still small voice of Mine
With the whispers of this voice I act with perfect timing
I'm in the right place at the right time
Miracles flow from my fingertips
And I'm assured and confident in what will come
By this quiet nudging in my heart
I am lead, I am powered, and remain unmoved by the world's mirage
My phantom self subdued, I only hear That Voice
My projected world enlightened, I only feel That Voice
That Voice that is smaller than an atom
And as vast as the Cosmic Skies
That Voice that strikes like lighting
In the quiet spaces of my being
That weightless Voice that eliminates all that is heavy within me
That Voice, That I Am
When That still small voice says listen, I get quiet inside
And …
