* Anchors *

Shout out to those anchoring in the new reality. I know we all are, but some of us do it as a day job. After years of personal inner work, the focus becomes larger. It’s a whole new level of service to the collective, and sometimes it isn’t easy.

I am happy to see so many new way-showers on the scene, pointing out the importance of choice and shadow work. That is an essential step, and it’s encouraging to see so many doing their work. I am writing this now because none of what’s out there seems to speak to me. Since you are another me, this post is for us. We aren’t alone.

We all know that shadow work and personal development is unending. That said, there comes a time when the focus moves from personal work to mastery. You know this shift has occurred when your personal happiness becomes second to something larger. When you know your happiness is tied to the lifting of the collective vibration. It’s a different kind of work, but some days it’s still tough.

The week of November 11-17 gave us a massive influx of light, bringing all kinds of stuff to the surface. While my world was shaken (adventures in plumbing, and other things) I was able to handle it all easily, because the vibe was so high. The lower density made up for the seemingly endless problems arising. On November 18 the energy fell back to normal. That’s been much harder on me than the intensity. Feels like an energy hangover.

The 3D folks are opposite. The higher the vibe, the worse they feel. I understand this lull is a much needed break for them. It’s necessary to gradually increase the vibe, by bringing it up high, then dropping down to a little higher than it was before. This ratcheting of the energy allows for minimum suffering, and maximum awakenings. Dropping back down is always hard for me.

So, if you are one of those sensitive souls who feel more at home in the higher realms, just know you aren’t alone. I can choose how to frame it, and what to dwell on, but feeling it… feeling it just happens. Yesterday (Nov 20) we had major geomagnetic shifts, which always make me queasy. I didn’t make myself sick by thinking or doing the wrong thing, I can just feel things like that. It’s an actual job to feel things on this level.

We anchor these energies by being consciously aware of how they feel in the body. Maybe at some point it will be a choice to stay at the lower density. Right now, for me, I am feeling it all. Movement helps. Breath-work helps. So far, nothing stops it entirely. Some days are blissful, some days are tough. All I know for sure is that I’m not alone on the planet, and we are supported by a massive invisible team. We were built for this. Thank you for your service.

2021 – Year of Revelation and Realignment

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”Joseph Campbell

For some months now, every time I try to see into 2021 all I hear is circus music. I sill think that’s how it’s going to look on the 3D stage… clowns endlessly appearing from a tiny car, spectacles of all sorts, death-defying acts… a great show. It will seem very chaotic, like no one is in charge and we are at the whim of fate. The good news is that fate is on our side, and it really works best without middle management.

We are being guided and supported more than we can imagine. If a choice brings tons of roadblocks, stop pursuing it. It may be the wrong direction or just the wrong timing. If you are heading toward your path, things will flow easily. Free will is not the same as we merge into unity. At this point, we can only make our own lives either easier or harder, but evolution is driving. The nice part is we really can’t mess it up. Like spiritual training wheels.

Both collectively and individually, we will find ourselves in an almost constant stream of new awareness, and then the resulting change that awareness creates. For those that love flow and adventure, it will be an exciting time. For those who crave stability and control, it’s an opportunity to find that grounding within. I know how that sounds, being a recovering control freak myself. 2020 at least gave us some practice with letting life flow, and releasing our ego grip on reality. Keep up the good work!

There will be an unprecedented number of “ah-ha” moments in 2021, on every level. This year will tell us with complete certainty that nothing is going back to pre-2020 normal. Ever. Expect changes in your perceptions, behaviors, and emotional reactions. The best way to cope with these shifts is allow yourself to flow with them. Spend more time in quiet contemplation, and be prepared to release the old you. We are simply waking up to our real selves. The illusions built by the ego as coping mechanisms are falling away. Let them fall. Don’t argue with reality.

These “ah-ha” moments will include every aspect of our daily life. With the body, this may mean new ideas about health and habits, or a new relationship with the body. Emotionally, our reactions, as well as our needs, will be different. Mentally, we will be re-framing pretty much everything we thought we knew. Know that change is part of evolution, and is much easier when welcomed. This includes outer changes in job or relationships – what used to work simply may not anymore. It’s okay. You’re being realigned to fit your original purpose. As Joseph Campbell says, “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”

There will be much shifting this year. With each change in perception, the outer world will realign to match it. Relocating, changes in relationships and jobs, health changes… everything is shifting to where it ought to be. For those who aren’t shifting much you are already on course, though being the vast minority, plan to see others moving around quite a bit. What comes, let it come; what goes, let it go. Let life move. Let life breathe through you, without having to direct it to satisfy ego structures.

Please note that the chaos is only in the human realm, as we have built our reality on ego structure. Nature is doing great. While humans will invent new ways to deal with the damage we have caused to our biosphere, the Earth is also healing herself. Even as I watch the final leaves fall this autumn, I can see a new glow around everything in nature. When you feel overwhelmed, go outside and really connect to the planet. She’s happily ascending, as planned.

Be incredibly gentle with yourself in 2021. Leave post-it notes on your bathroom mirror: “Be Gentle”. The kinder you are to yourself, the kinder you can be with others, and the smoother this whole year will be. Plan to give yourself time and opportunity to grow at your own pace. This means more contemplation time, and a positive inner dialog. This will be a challenging year for many. The more light you can hold within, the more light you can provide others. You can’t pour from an empty cup.

I recommend getting away from news and social media. The world stage won’t be pretty, and many will be spouting doom and fear. Discover the true power of now by staying present to your own reality, without other’s input. If you choose to go there, cue the circus music. Stay out of blame and judgement, and know that everyone has their own path, which you can’t change. My theme song for the year is “Thank U” by Alanis Morissette. Stay in gratitude, because everything is happening for you, not to you.

Maybe your revelations will include being a multi-dimensional being whose Higher Self is now in charge. Maybe you will notice how strange linear time is. Maybe you will sit back and enjoy getting to the decade we came here for. History will mark this decade as the turning point. 2021 is full of potential, just waiting for us to relax enough to see it.

Willful Release

We have all heard that there are new frequencies available to all willing hearts. I imagine your inner dialog is similar to mine: Yes! Of course I’m willing to shift! Who wouldn’t want to evolve towards a loving future? But it’s never that simple, is it? We usually want to keep everything we have, and just add more goodness to it. That may be problematic.

All the old mental structures must go, in order to build the new. Notice I said “mental structures“. This is a total change of mind. Thinking as a child, learning it all from scratch. What is money? Religion? Government? Laws? Work? Relationships? Death? Love? It’s time to release our old ways of thinking. All of them. We are ready to be truly free, but we must reevaluate and release these structures on purpose.

This isn’t about taking action in your outer world, only in your mind. No one is suggesting you quite your job, leave your spouse, and abandon your children. However, we are being asked to reexamine our attachment to suffering, and codependency. Which stories in your life bring you suffering or fear? Is martyrdom glorified in any of your stories? What if the situation remained the same, but your inner story changed? What if you had stories that supported your freedom?

This reevaluation may end in outer changes, as all inner changes do, but the focus is on our inner world. The future is too expansive to even get my future-oriented mind around, so the only way to prepare is to get my thoughts in order. We are preparing for another leap in consciousness, so it is best to travel light. Everyone will get there in their own time, and it is just fear and codependency that keeps us attached to certain people. It’s a leap of faith to trust in the process. We were built for this.

* Slow Ego Death *

I know we are all feeling the weight of 2020 upon us like a wet woolen cloak, but this isn’t the only reason it feels so heavy. We are heading into completely new territory as a whole, and things that used to work no longer do. Am I depressed? Did my thyroid quit? Oh wait… this feels reminiscent of falling into the void. Ego death.

At the end of 2008, I experienced a sudden ego death, which I call surfing the void. I wouldn’t recommend losing the ego suddenly like that. It was incredibly jarring, and it took a good seven years to get my feet under me again. This time, as a collective, the ego is slowly dissolving. Much better plan. It has been thinning for several years, but it has finally reached the end of its existence.

We all know people who are so ego-bound you can’t even talk to them. But if you look closely, they are having to spend an unusual amount of energy propping up this facade. The ego structure hasn’t been supported for some time, making people who live there dig in their heels to try to hold it up. Now, the energies are actively washing away the ego structure, like waves erasing footprints on the beach. Yes, some will hold out as long as possible, but the weight of the struggle will eventually bring surrender, and peace.

I find it hard to write, just because there really isn’t much to say on the other side of ego. I have a hard time getting too excited about anything, good or bad. Then I drop back into ego-life, and feel the waves crashing against me, making me small and vulnerable. I don’t shift back and forth on purpose. It just happens with the shifting energy. The ego feels angry or scared, while the ego-less feels blissful and complete.

Along with bliss, there’s a lot of wanting to just be. Sitting in the sun, reading a book, watching dogs play. Without the ego, there simply isn’t a driving force. For now. I suspect we will get a new set of motivations shortly. But the old motivations – usually money, or power, or fame – no longer have the hold they once did. Freedom and sovereignty. We finally get to see what humans were meant to be.

The old ways won’t work, even on a personal level. How ever you used to motivate yourself will no longer work, if it was tied to the ego. For me, service to others is all that still resonates with me. That’s why I write. I want you to know you aren’t alone. We are all witnessing the birth of a new humanity. We were built for this, and we are here at this time for a reason. We are loved and supported in higher realms, more than we can comprehend. Remember that.

As we venture into this new way of being, be gentle with yourself. When you drop back into the ego state, don’t “should” all over yourself (I “should” be doing, thinking, acting differently). This is the inevitable evolution at work, you can’t do it wrong. The smoothest transition is just to release resistance. Let go. Yes, the laundry still needs to be washed, but does it have to happen right now? How many things do we force into being? Forcing will get harder. Wait for the wave of inspiration, then ride it. Let the energy carry you. Ride the wave of the future.

Re-post: Fractal Reality

Note – More than ever, your body is your strength. Specifically, your relationship to your body is what matters. The way you relate to your body will be mirrored in your outer world, so make the adjustments within your own mind. The documentary ‘Kiss the Ground’ shows the fractal nature of the physical world. When you say you love yourself, does that idea of self include your body?

These posts come to me from the ether somewhere. I feel like they are broadcast to all, but a few of us pick up the message more strongly, so I pass it on as best I can. Once in a while, the very secrets of creation come streaming in. I used to worry about publicly sharing this secret information, but then I realized two things… 1) The time for secrets is over, and 2) If  someone isn’t ready to receive, they don’t hear me anyway. The Mystery Teachings really do require the eyes to see, and the ears to hear. So let’s create some reality, shall we?

I love it when old information is presented in a new way. It’s all symbol and metaphor, but some symbols are just easier to understand. The Mystery Schools teach that reality is holographic… you can cut off a corner, and still see the whole picture within the piece. I can mentally grasp it, but it never seemed natural to me. A few days ago, I got the image of all reality as a fractal. That one feels easier to me. While this concept can be applied at any level, I’m going to focus on the physical. After all, changing the physical world is what we’re after.

Imagine a fractal. The spiraling arms represent both the micro (molecules), and the macro (universes). Your Higher Mind is the center, where it all springs from. As all Divinity, the center is everywhere, and the circumference is nowhere. We are each the defining force in our own fractal. When our thoughts are untrained, and just repeating old input (monkey mind), The fractal just keeps repeating in the same way, both micro and macro.

Here’s the crazy part… we get to change the pattern by focusing the Higher Mind. This can be done by will (lower magic), or by love (higher magic). Thoughts are electric, and emotions are magnetic. If we use our will to constantly redirect our thoughts to love, the result is magnetically attracting that vibration into our field.

I know this seems overwhelming on a grand scale, so we’re just going to focus on our own body. Every chance you get, redirect the conversation to love. If you don’t like your body, figure out why. If your body has addiction issues, get it help. Treat your body as a dear friend, who has always been there for you. Because it has. Your body is the only reason you get to exist, and create, in the physical realm. The more loving dialog you have with your body, the easier it becomes to change physical reality. Your own body is the key.

Motivation matters. Are you avoiding alcohol because you should, or because you love your liver? Doing (or avoiding) things because you are following a list is just dogma. Dogma is just a belief system, and not grounded in the physical plane. Acting out of love is where the power lies. Do you avoid leaving your dog in a hot car because you might get in trouble, or because you want the animal to be safe and comfortable? How much of what you do for your own body is motivated by love?

This is where the shadow work comes in. Figure out your own stories that keep you from self-love. I’m not taking about body image, or indulging base desires, I mean real love. Real support. Unconditional stuff. Your body naturally strives for health. Your Higher Mind naturally wants to be in body. Loving and supporting our body is our natural state. If you aren’t there, and many aren’t, your work is to figure out why, and fix it. Changing the physical world requires changing our relationship to it, starting with our host body.

We all know that as each person awakens, it affects the collective. This is totally true, but grounding it in the physical plane requires a physical connection. What if your self-talk is heard, stored, and repeated in your cells? What if the patterns you create spiral out into the multiverse? What if you can change the shape of your fractal at anytime, by redefining your relationship to your body? As with any change it takes time and practice to become permanent. It’s worth it.

Your relationship with your own body can show you, with great clarity, where you are on the spiritual path. When we change the game from “amusement park” to complete support, we change everything. The whole world goes from selfish to selfless, in a heartbeat. Greed and hierarchy have no place in a world of loving cooperation. The Masculine (mind), and the Feminine (body) come into perfect unison, as they were meant to be. This is where we’ll effect the macro of our planet. This is how we change fractal reality.

Re-post: Being Fully Human

Note – I’m not trying to be lazy by just re=posting old blogs. The information coming in has been said before, and is again necessary to review. As the ego is challenged into collapse, we return to our original state as Divine beings, a combination of Body & Spirit. The more we can do to understand life without the ego in charge, the easier this shift will be.

I know a teacher who says she teaches humans how to be gods. My niche is a bit smaller. I teach gods how to be human.

For many years, I had a great fear of being human, mostly because the people around me telling me I needed to be more human were totally ego-bound, lost in addiction, drama, and attachment. After much observation, I have decided that type of behavior isn’t “human” at all, because to be fully human we have to balance two things – the physical body and the Higher Mind.

The body is full of chemical reactions and genetic memory. The Higher Mind is the observer consciousness (not to be confused with the monkey mind of the ego). Combining the two results in a human… a real, full, true human. Most people at this point (2018) are still functioning at the more primal (or animal) physical and ego level. I generally refer to them as “muggles” (non-magic folk, from Harry Potter). They just aren’t awake yet, and their Higher Mind (Higher Self, intuition) is still too quiet to be noticed.

The Mystery School side of this is fascinating. The body is your feminine energy, and the Higher Mind is your masculine energy. This has absolutely nothing to do with gender or gender roles, and everyone has these two energies within them. Please keep this in mind as we continue, and reread this paragraph anytime you feel triggered in a gender wound way.

In many religious teachings, the body is shunned, as are women. From Eve eating the apple, to women being property, to witch burnings, all things female have been framed as weak and immoral. From a Mystery School perspective, we can see that the body, without Higher Mind guidance, is basically an animal. It’s hairy, and smelly, and has hormones to assure continued reproduction of the species. From an animalistic point of view, there is nothing wrong with any of that. Animals aren’t immoral, they’re amoral. They are driven by instincts and chemicals, without much thought of consequence.

This is why so many New Age teachings say the feminine energy is wild and unpredictable. It’s Nature. It’s our primal, physical side. The problem is, the body is also prone to addiction, and it houses the ego. Thus the issues with the Hedonistic ideals of placing pleasure above all else, as the primary goal of life.

There’s not much to say about the Higher Mind, except that it longs for a physical from to inhabit. Being fully human allows that to happen.

Now, reframe these biblical concepts with the above in mind…

In the beginning, God created the Earth (a physical platform to descend into)
Adam was lonely, so Eve was created from his rib, as a companion (the masculine energy entered the physical body, to become one)
Men should be the head of the household, while women should obey his commands (your Higher Mind should lead your physical body, to keep you from addiction)

Go through every misogynistic religious teaching you’ve ever come across, and retell it in the form of combining your own two polarities. It’s truly a shame religious writings are now taken so literally. The symbolism is where the gold is.

So where are you in this balancing act? Is your body (and ego) leading the way to drama and addiction? Is you Higher Mind still yearning for a physical home? Your body is a Temple… cherish it, repair it, clean it, because it is host to your Higher Mind. When those two meet as partners, it is true Divine Union. And this, my friends, is what it means to be fully human.

Re-post: Emotion & Attachment

Note – As our thoughts shift, it’s the perfect time to recognize and release emotional attachments. Spend some time contemplating repeating patterns in your life.

Emotions have become much more complicated than they were originally designed to be. What we experience as emotion is only a chemical reaction in the physical body. They are meant to be felt, get our attention to notice what triggered them, and be released. Just a teaching tool, nothing more. They help us discern “good” experiences from “bad”, and pleasure from danger. They assist in survival, as well as personal spiritual evolution.

The ego’s job is to create stories; that’s why we have one. We need an ego to maintain the illusion of duality, separation from Source and each other. The problem is, when we have an emotion, instead of just letting it be felt and leave the body, the ego attaches a story. From then on, the story triggers the emotion, and the emotion triggers the story. Biofeedback loop. That, my friends, is called a design flaw.

Then we add chemical addiction to the emotion itself, and we’ve really put ourselves in a hole. Now, we will subconsciously find a way to trigger the emotion, just to get a fix. At this point, no one is learning anything anymore, and can’t figure out why they keep replaying the same story.

What started as a chemically based teaching tool has taken on a life of its own. The emotional body and the pain body have both grown, if not originally formed, due to this biofeedback loop. In the original Mystery Teachings the four etheric bodies were physical, astral, mental, and spiritual. Only more recently do teachings refer to the emotional body instead of the astral body. Interesting, right?

Both the emotional body and the pain body are parts of the astral body. It is only through mental attachment to chemical emotions that we form and maintain these bodies. Or we inherited them. Yes, the chemicals of emotion, when not allowed to flow through and exit the body, actually change the DNA. So, whatever you don’t clear is passed on to your offspring. Science has finally caught up on that one.

I’m not saying emotions aren’t real. They are very real. And the experiences that caused them are very real. But the story we attach to that emotional experience is subjective and fluid. For example, your Dad hit you at Christmas one year while he was drinking. The experience happened. You had an emotional reaction. However, how you view the incident changes with time. At first, maybe you were angry in general, then at men, then at alcohol, then a greater understanding of addiction, then it changes to compassion for your Dad’s pain, etc. The story changes over time with your own experiences. The problem is the tighter you hold the story, the more attachment to recreating the emotion.

Never fear, there is a solution. It begins, you guessed it, with awareness. In order to clear these emotional charges they must be noticed (or remembered), fully felt, and the story released. The process is simple, but the work is messy. Most people want to remember the event, and go straight to releasing it. That’s called “spiritual bypassing”, and it never truly heals the wound.

I think we are all a little wary of fully feeling our emotions because on some level we recognize the little biofeedback issue. Understandable. No one wants to get lost in the astral body. But the feeling part is essential to clear the chemical from the physical body. It’s almost like the emotional chemical lodges itself in the body, until it is felt and acknowledged; like its job isn’t complete until it’s felt. Once you fully feel it, it can leave, provided you don’t have a mental attachment (story).

Try this process… identify an emotional event, release or rewrite the story, fully feel the emotion involved, thank it and release it. Fill any empty spaces with Divine Love, and let the healing begin. If you feel the emotion come up again in a similar way (same story), fully feel it, thank it, and release it, then become aware of patterns or lingering attachments. Be aware, and make changes, but release the emotion.

Emotions must be felt, but only as a passing wave. Don’t allow the ego to build a story around every emotion. Awareness is the key.

Personal Revolution

There are so many layers to what is happening right now. I see the chaos in the world, and keep hearing the same message – it doesn’t matter. It’s not apathy, or defeat, it’s more like the fall of the old reality is scripted, and going as planned. Everything is unfolding as it should.

On the one hand, there is no need to push the river. Just step back, and let it crumble. It needs no further assistance, or attention. On the other hand, we are very actively creating a new world. Every thought, word, and deed are forming both your personal reality, and the new collective. Now is the time for personal revolution. Take steps in the direction of your dreams. Step into the role of creator, from within.

If this sounds like both a lofty goal, and an intimidating mission, just know you aren’t alone. Millions of us are at this same place. And we all still make mistakes. When you catch yourself choosing thoughts, words, or deeds that aren’t of the vibration you want to create, simply stop, and ponder how you got there. Be very aware of yourself, and make better choices as you go. We are all evolving at an incredible rate. Don’t be surprised if your highest choices this week need adjusting by next week. Constant, growing awareness.

Stay fluid, and be gentle with yourself. Now is a perfect time to adjust your trajectory. Everyone is on their own path. You do no one any good by hanging on to relationships or situations you’ve outgrown. Lead by example. Parting ways is sometimes necessary for both parties to grow, and growth is happening, ready or not. Moving in the direction of personal evolution is easier now than ever before. While you may be dreading a confrontation, it might be smoother than you think.

On the world stage, we are really seeing why the meek shall inherit the Earth. Only those with an ego stake in the game are still playing. Those who have their focus inward are wandering off into a different world. Some are relocating, but most are just changing the inner channel. I relocated earlier this year, and left social media this week. To find my place, I needed to be willing to let go of the old. My personal revolution continues.

I consider myself a recovering control freak, so dropping into this ever-changing stream of reality has been a journey for me. Try not to dwell on the loss of control, instead, choose gratitude. Change the channel from worry to appreciation. From fear to love. Whenever possible, return to the heart. As you turn off the light and slide into your bed, end your day with a mental gratitude list. I begin and end each day with a list of things that make me happy. This really keeps me centered, and out of the collective fear. It also sets a pattern in your mind to look for the good.

Do whatever you need to do to stay aware, and on your highest trajectory. Love yourself. Love others. Just love. The world of succeeding all on your own is ending. Let it end. Embrace the fluid unknown, and watch your life transform. All you have to do is mind your mind – awareness, and changing the channel. This revolution starts within.

Re-post: Victim Mentality

Note: As the hierarchy falls, there are many feeling victimized. Please be aware of your current comforts, and your inner dialog, to avoid feelings of helplessness. Power structures will look quite different in a few short years. Be aware of how you are giving your power away with your thoughts and words. Make every effort to find your personal power everyday.

We tend to think of victim mentality with a flare of the dramatic… “Oh, poor me!” But it’s considerably more subtle and elusive. Anytime we feel powerless, we are feeling the effects of being a victim of circumstance. While we can’t change some circumstances, we can always adjust our mentality. Well, almost always. Let’s take a brief look at mental illness…

While mental illness has many complexities, which I am not qualified to discuss, their are 2 main categories to be aware of for our purposes: cognitive and physical. With a cognitive disorder, wrong thinking creates physical change (anxiety caused by thoughts can increased heat rate), and the person can benefit greatly from cognitive therapy, where they can learn coping skills. With a physical disorder, physical changes cause wrong thinking (like Alzheimer’s or schizophrenia), where cognitive therapy is of little use, because the physical brain no longer functions fully. The point is, if you have a relative with both Alzheimer’s and victim mentality, they lack the ability to change their thinking, so compassion is all we can offer. For the rest of us… mind your mind.

Victim mentality creeps into our thoughts and words in the form of excuses; all the reasons we have for not being happy, or not doing what we want with our lives. For every solution, there’s a problem. To be empowered means we have to completely accept our situation, then act where you can to change it. It is a mixture of old teachings and new… Buddhism tells us to just accept what is, and New Agers tell us to actively create our reality. Empowerment requires both. Fully accepting where you are, without resistance, removes fear and expense of energy on struggle. Then taking action, no matter how small, to change your situation activates your free will, which is like the power switch of the Universe.

Something to watch (listen) for is using victim language as currency. Caroline Myss has written about people using illness as social currency. Really listen to what people are using as currency… always telling you how broke they are, or how hard life is, or any number of stories. I’m not talking about sharing parts of their life in a general conversation. I’m talking about those people who have A TOPIC, that you know will come up, and will be discussed at length. Like your Great Aunt who always has to itemize her illnesses, medications, and procedures, and is offended if you don’t ask about her health.

This isn’t a judgement, just an awareness. Just be aware of the words people use to identify themselves, and their unwillingness to change. Ever though they ask for help solving their problems, no solution is ever good enough. They don’t want a solution, they want a problem. A solution would require change, and generally, suffering is preferable to change. Suffering is a known factor, while change requires faith and a willingness to explore the Mystery.

Now, turn that all inward. Listen to your own self-talk. Do you make excuses for your unhappiness? Replace “I would do this, BUT…” with “I would do this, BUT I am choosing to be a victim of circumstance.” How does that change the excuse? It is no longer a justification, but a choice. When you are ready, you can make a different choice.

Enablers are yet another aspect of this situation. Victim mentality, like so much, is just an addiction. And like any addiction, it requires a supplier. So while you may think you are just being compassionate company, you may actually be feeding an addiction. On one hand it’s a win-win, because Great Aunt Lulu gets to feel loved for her aches and pains, while the niece gets to feel useful by listening and making appropriate sympathetic noises, but no one is growing. At an ego level, being an enabler can be rewarding… but at what cost? Again, just be aware of the energy exchange, and how it propagates the issue.

As with so much, just the awareness of the dynamic will allow it to shift. You might easily change a few thought patterns, then really get stuck on one. That’s okay. Just sit with it, and accept where you are. Letting go of the struggle allows things to move. As you work this out inside yourself, you will begin to become more aware of the language others speak. Who are you surrounded by? What kind of stories do they replay? Remember, we become who we spend time with. Look at your 5 closest friends to see who you are becoming.

Most of all, mind your mind.

Re-post: Absolute Accountability

As you enter into the higher realms of spiritual development, you begin to see the effect of your every thought on the world around you. The awareness actually becomes a bit painful, because you can not only clearly understand your own life, but also those around you, those you love. We each absolutely create our own suffering. It’s difficult to watch, and impossible to correct, except for ourselves. You will reach a point in your development when change is inevitable, and change usually costs us some (or all) of our relationships.

This is beyond the dramatic break-up, and the feeling of being alone. This is more of an allowing, and a complete dedication to inner growth. At some point you just realize growth is the end game, and all else is distraction. A convincing distraction, I’ll give you, but just a distraction. You come to a complete knowing that everything outside you is temporary, and only the light within is eternal. This becomes more than an ancient teaching, or a mental theory, and you feel it deep in your bones. At that point, you do everything you can to make that small glow a blazing fire.

This awareness seeps into every action, every word, every thought. You are constantly asking yourself, “Is this evolving me?” It sounds obsessive, but it is really an act of being fully present with yourself at all times. To monitor your every thought as an observer requires complete dedication, which for me is a consequence of Love. This is one of those mystical experiences (a Rumi moment) where the desire for Divine Union (union between body and Spirit) outweighs all else. Once you have the slightest taste of it, it becomes a consuming drive. Presence is addictive, it’s only leading up to that part that takes work.

Presence makes every moment eternal, because you live fully in the now. We spend most of our time projecting our consciousness into the past or the future, enjoying only fleeting glimpses of the present. It is meant to be the other way around. We need fleeting glimpses of the past and the future to remain on course, but life only really exists in the present moment. Yes, learn from the past, and plan for the future, but live in the now. Eternity exists here. Awareness brings us to this zero point of creation.

Living in the moment isn’t the same as hedonism, in fact, it is quite opposite. Hedonism asks “what do I want right now?” and spirituality asks “what will evolve me right now?” Just because an action isn’t being judged as right or wrong doesn’t make all actions equal. Yoga will evolve you faster than alcoholism. It just will. Neither one is wrong, but by saying “everything is spiritual”, one is missing the point of free will. Discernment is vital to spiritual growth. Discernment and free will guide your progress. You steer your ship, it isn’t at the whim of the tides.

Looking at it from the outside, it seems like a list of rules, requiring a great deal of discipline… no drinking, practice meditation, eat lightly, exercise, measure your words… But what if those are just observations of habits of those on the Path? What if these “rules” are really just a “fake it til you make it” strategy? What if, when you raise your vibration, your habits simply change to fully support your body, your life? That’s my observation. I have seen many people try to be spiritual by following a list of rules, but people whose light is brightest just live those “rules” because it feels right. They are fully accountable to themselves for their own wellbeing.

You are accountable, always and only, to yourself. You can’t make decisions based on someone else, nor can you just do nothing, expecting enlightenment to fall out of the sky. Every single action, word, and thought affect your very cells. They change your vibration, and like vibrations always find each other, people, places, and things. You create your world, both consciously and subconsciously, so it is in your best interest to bring awareness to all aspects of your being. You are accountable to you.
