We’re conditioned to believe that so many things have authority over us. Even well intentioned teachers convey the idea that you need some vitamin, energy practice, karmic clearing, or astrological adjustment to handle Mercury in retrograde — or you’ll suffer. But the truth ...

BUSTING THE FUTURE MYTH

“I’ll get to it later…I’ll do it tomorrow…the time isn’t right…when xyz condition changes, then I’ll do it…”

This kind of self-talk is a sign you’re stuck in the future myth, putting life on the layaway plan, waiting for some future condition that’ll allow you to take action. Maybe you’re in a job you hate, but tell yourself that when you have a better job, ...

The Desire Path

By | Emergence | No Comments

There’s an apocryphal story about a landscape designer who convinced campus planners at a major college to leave out the paved paths the first semester, and allow students and faculty to reveal where the paths should go. They resisted the idea at first, fearing that people would get lost, take all manner of shortcuts, create a maze of different routes with no order, and ultimately ...

The Secret Language of Desire

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

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

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 ...
