feeling god

there is cliche in the expression we are spiritual beings having a human experience. 

there is also truth.

we are also human beings having spiritual experiences.

we are all both or either at any given moment.

we also all have it in us to be humans having a human experience.

it is the spiritual being having a human experience who, in its myriad of manifestations, gave us jesus. that same being also gave us buddha, lao tzu, dr. dyer, bob marley, ernest holmes, da vinci, tolle, dr. hawking, st. francis of asisi, sonja grace and many, many others.

it is the human being having a spiritual experience that gives still others - the pope, and the little boy he kissed, oprah, choprah, ms. hay, ms. williamson, etc.

in the course of living life it is ours to learn that most of us must consciously invite spirituality and then be open to and aware of the presence of it in us. to put it another way, A Course in Miracles says '...removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance.' what there is to know, then, is the love in us is spirit in us. so is the life in us.

there are those of us who steadfastly remain stuck in the human being human and running and running and running - in a hurry to get somewhere, something, or more of everything. this one, to me sounds exhausting. the obvious issue is that the peace in us is found in spirit in us. it is only our own desire for instant gratification and for filling voids inside that we humans want and want and want. it is also only our own desire for peace that sends us to the place of healing - into spirit.

spirit itself longs to know itself from the perspective of experiencing itself through and in its creations. it is why we go to the mountains, to the ocean, to the desert and to the stars. it is also why we go to the barber and to the masseur and to every last edge of earth experience we can have. the downside of so much to do, see and experience is the lust created by our own desire for our creations. just as spirit longs for its creations, we long for ours.

the difference? spirit's creations are without exception lovely and manageable by her, ergo she can digest them. our creations are detrimental to (in this human's view) spirit's loveliest creation, earth.

what if? we could somehow figure a way to stop . what if we earnestly looked inside ourselves and found ways to meaningfully reward the good in people and in actions that are good in deed - for ourselves and for our sweet mother home. i know well the feeling of feeling good. is there really any difference in feeling good and feeling god?

thank you dr. dyer

the passing of dr. dyer brings an understanding that i would/could never, ever have reached him on this plane. although i will miss the fact of his bodily presence, i think there is so much more he can do from where he is now. i realize that he is now accessible, where before, when he was here, he was not - to me anyway. 

to operate in the space of miraculous one must have it in them to believe in the possibility of miracles. if i am to create miracles, i must have it in me to go to the place of their existence. he truly gave me and so many others permission to go to that place within us. he was love incarnate - and he is loved greatly.

his words are profound, his teachings life-changing. his message an amalgamation, and a beacon. he truly was/is light in the world. a flame as his can never extinguish - can never be undone, can only be carried, treasured and expanded. he, himself, was/is a treasure - his message to the world : i am possible. he believed this with all his being - and inspired and inspired and inspired others to be so as well.

thank you, dr. dyer - 
thank you, thank you, thank you.

namaste dear friend.


i honor the place in you where spirit lives
the place in you which is of love, truth, light and peace
when you are in that place in you
and i am in that place in me
we are one.

feeling good

miracles happen as a direct result of willingness to see them, to believe in them. 

i believe in miracles - i believe i create miracles by intention, by gratitude and asking for them, and then allowing them to be true by seeing them for what they are : miracles. truly the realm of magic is the space miracles occupy. magic is as powerful as connection to source, for this connection is itself magic. i believe.

i know the great truth that living in knowing is the answer : there are, inside us all, latent energies awaiting activation. only needing to be known, acknowledged. there is nothing outside of us that can or will create force in these energies - only inside our own strength, inside our own heart of hearts, inside our own soul lies the mystery. 

to search outside of us for anything is to find what is outside. to look deep within our-selves is the place all peace is found. living peacefully is a mere reflection of the peace we will only find inside of us, if we are willing. i know myself willing - i feel access even now, in this very moment.

becoming myself aware of my spiritual beingness has been a process of reconditioning. but the truth is that i only needed to get out of my own way. the energy of itself was always there; albeit at times dormant (or ignored). it was always mine to allow ...

it is said that a great yogi asked his students upon their entry to the ashram, what is the difference between feeling good and feeling god (great spirit, the divine, allah, yahweh, jah, the creator, what ever you want to call the spirit of life within you)? the students that could find no difference, he said, were the students who were well on their way ... others would take a more circituitous route.
