The Secret Language of Desire

By | Emergence, Wealth and Abundance | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

Desire has gotten a bad rap in the spiritual world. Perhaps it started with Buddha who supposedly said desire is the root of suffering. I say ‘supposedly’ because I have serious doubts he ever taught such a thing, at least in the way that we think. What he did teach was that ‘craving’ and ‘aversion’ were the root of suffering; in other words, the compulsion ...

The Soil of Your Soul

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

There is a Divine Pattern within you. And, like the acorn, when the right conditions are created, it naturally, even effortlessly, emerges. But whereas the acorn is indigenous and, therefore, can only thrive in certain external conditions not within its control, human beings are endogenous, which means your conditions are internally derived or generated.

It doesn’t matter what external conditions you’re planted in, your soul ...

Nothing enters into this world except through the process of giving. If we don’t give, there can’t be more. If you want more to come into your life, you must let more life come out of you!

You are a divine power plant, and a power plant doesn’t receive energy, it generates it. Even the word human comes from a Sanskrit term for ‘man’ that ...

From Cause & Effect to Grace

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

World religions, when interpreted from a literal perspective, sometimes teach that we’re at the whim of an external God who rewards or punishes us for good and bad deeds, like Santa’s naughty or nice list—or just acts in capricious, mysterious ways that we’re not intended to understand.

But a more spiritual or mystical interpretation of the Christian teaching “as you sow so shall you reap,” ...

The Acorn Principle

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

Many if not most of us hold a belief that our fate is determined by external conditions, that the things we need are out there, and that we must get them by just about any means necessary. This leads us to try to operate in the world in ways that are the reverse of how life really works, causing us to constantly struggle against the ...

Meet the Real You

By | Emergence | No Comments

We have been born under a mistaken identity. And almost everything that we see, hear, and experience – almost everything produced by society – keeps us in the dark about who and what we truly are. The mistaken identity is that we are merely human beings, having an occasional spiritual experience; that we are born in sin, worms of the dust; that we are circumscribed ...

BUSYNESS IS NOT ACTION

A busy person is not necessarily productive. If they’re not aligned with their true purpose, focused on what’s most important (but not necessarily urgent), whatemerges is often stress, overwhelm, and more distraction. Have you ever gone through a busy day, only to fall into bed, exhausted, feeling like you didn’t get anything significant done?

Swirling around in that tornado of to-do’s, you felt like ...

FROM ANTICIPATION TO PARTICIPATION

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

One of the greatest shifts that happens in our attention, as we work on cultivating the congruent conditions for our emergence, is we move from anticipation of future good or fear of future bad to a greater participation in the good already here. Remember the radio analogy that I often use: your favorite music isn’t playing in the future or distance, it’s already here and ...

THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH THEM

By | Spiritual Growth | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

As the proverb states, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. There’s an even clearer alternate version: “Hell is full of good meanings, but heaven is full of good works.” Despite its lofty place in personal development, setting intentions can be dangerous because the ego often uses it to give us the illusion of progress while keeping us the same. We set the ...

Living In the Feeling Tone of your vision—what I call the LIFT Practice—is the core of your daily emergence work. It brings together all the elements you’ve been developing, if you’ve been doing the work in the emergence programs. As this becomes a consistent part of your life, it will cut a new subjective groove in your consciousness, integrating this higher frequency until it becomes ...
