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 ...

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 DAILY L.I.F.T.

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 ...

THE 3 PILLARS OF YOUR SOUL PURPOSE

By | Emergence, Purpose | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

Your vision is made up of three primary pillars: how you would FEEL, who you would BE, and what you would DO if you were living it fully. This is an important distinction because people focus most on the doing, less on the feeling, and rarely on the being. If their vision is to have a thriving business and the love of their life, they ...

The Great Reversal

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

We’ve been taught that life happens to us and that we must find better ways to deflect, dodge, or dance with it. While learning to master this life aikido may have helped us survive as a species, we’ve evolved to a place where it not only limits our growth but may hasten our demise. Nothing can enter our experience except as an activity of our ...

The Ultimate Wait Loss Program

By | Emergence, Spiritual Growth | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

While it’s not good for your health to pack on extra pounds, the heaviest burden to your well-being is the extra “wait” you’re carrying – all the excuses you’ve swallowed for why you can’t live your dreams; all the doubt you’ve digested that’s keeping you on the couch until the ‘the timing is right.’ As Napoleon Hill instructed, “Do not wait: the time will never ...

The Paralysis Of Over-Analysis

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

In the pursuit of self-help and spirituality, there’s a danger of becoming too theoretical, a perpetual student of personal growth. This can be a trick of the ego to keep you the same while giving you the illusion of change. It can also create a spiritual narcissism where we’re more committed to feeling warm and fuzzy and waxing philosophic than taking the kind of action ...

Failing Forward

“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”– John F. Kennedy

One big reason we stay in our comfort zones of inaction is the fear of failure. This isn’t news. It’s also common advice to embrace our failures and learn from them. This is a step up, however it still makes failure a ...

Whatever’s Missing Is What You’re Not Giving

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

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 ...

What Do You Really Want?

By | Emergence | No Comments
  • Share on Tumblr

Desire sometimes gets a bad rap in the spiritual world. Perhaps it started with Buddha who supposedly said desire causes suffering. And has led to many teachings that imply that desires aren’t spiritual and we should strive for a desire-less state.

But desires aren’t the problem, our misperception of them is. The word ‘Desire’ actually has a deeper meaning: ‘of the sire,’ as in father ...
