RELEASE AND REFRESH Release today whatever is no longer worthy or of pertinent value, that fails to support your cause or case, knowing that as the released is let go, a space, a void appears requiring gentle filling, a re-envisioning, a pouring into, a completion. Release all that is worn, threadbare, what has been used, wrung out; the shards of a past moment, now unbecoming or out of step with a more abundant vision of a fuller imagining, of a flourishing existence, of a magnificence now erupting. Release the words and ideas that hold you in place, stiff, incapable of great actions, of worthy utterance, the thoughts of limitations, lack, or critical appraisal – clearing these lies, falsehoods, and incantations of hopelessness, replacing instead with gems of hope, of capability, of soaring potential is full bloom.

MASTER MINDS The tip of our perception is but a fragment of our beingness contained beneath, a reality so vast and alive, an ocean of potentials, of possibilities, twisting and pulsing with purpose, preparing for a place within thought and eventually in our consciousness, an image, a reflection of the original intent. This conceivable apex allows the experience of living to appear concrete, final, when it is but an interpretation of our well mastered and honed capabilities, enabling our ability to sail on a delicate sea of light reflected, refracted, then framed within the conceptual magic of our inner creative vision. We are capable of looking within to harness this phenomenon, as the perceivers, the vehicles of interpretation, the master constructors of beingness itself, with each perspective an individualized universe in the multiverse of sentient focus, the culmination of human contribution, the molders of living, the conceivers of worthy existence, the fabricators, possibly the originators, the master minds.

Positivity is at the center of New Thought and our very well-being. We must remind ourselves that our possibilities and opportunities increase with positive thought, and correspondingly, decrease when we focus on the negative. I offer this Affirmative Thought below as a reminder for all of us, to focus on heartfelt, positive expressions today, and when needed, weeding the garden of our minds. Continue reading

As much as I try to look beyond the the state of our current union, the level of our internal hostility and bitterness seems to require, at times, the only type of reminder I am capable of offering or qualified to express – a simple reminder that beneath our well-honed outrage, that we are still, and will always be, one - a singular we. THE SINGULAR WE Let us sit clear headed, perched near the edge of the pond of our knowing, leaving behind and shedding the friction of common existence, here only true essence matters: the flow of pure energy, the substance of our living, as we wake to the moment, realizing our solitude is now replaced with the multitude, as the infinity of us surrounds the pond’s edge, stretching beyond perception, each being connected as the thread of light travels from and through, heart to heart, soul to soul; now, what was plural, is singular, a unity of perfect being.

THIS MOMENT With every moment we are presented with an opportunity to be more, to choose our own unique direction, to interpret our existence, to perceive our future and manifest its very essence, to lay the ties and trestles of this momentum, to alleviate our suffering, to flourish even with our burdens in tow, to soar through our real or imagined constraints, manifesting our magnificence. With every moment comes a point of choice, to propel forward or shrink into the malaise of our fears and concerns, to boldly say yes to life and living, to hold our worthy vision before us, and with each deliberate chisel stroke give this vision life and vitality, thinking it into worthy existence – creating a more wholesome and flourishing reality. With very moment an opportunity, a choice, a personal, spiritual refinement, renewal – a chance to peer within, to grasp our purpose, our meaning, allowing its significance to stoke our enthusiasm, summon our joy, as our purpose aligns with our will – life synchronized, harmonious, as God’s love assists our efforts, preparing the way to our rightful destiny.

FACETS OF LIFE/LIGHT The gem of life offers distinct facets of light, hold it in contemplation, examine its flashes and shards; splashes of light, chips of light, tossing the senses to and fro, with clarity, then explosions, then reflective wonder: know this is the very nature of God’s scintillation, present in every intimate and minute detail, an orchestrated marvel, a dance of divine illumination - focus as you will; yet fully recognize that each delicate spark conveys one note of a more magnificent image – a truth reflected.

GOD’S GRACE IN ACTION Redemption, resurrection, renewal – the path of God’s grace in action, the cleansing of what needs to be washed away and forgiven; enabling a return to the original purpose and intention of being, able again to be unbounded, now ready to live as ordained; with a sense of renewed determination, enthusiasm, and momentum. Each of us has the capability to redeem and to be redeemed, to face the tarnished perception of our desires gone awry, reaching our hands into the fount of God’s mercy, restoring what was perceived as lost, yet merely forgotten, now awaited. Each of us has the capacity for resurrection, even after the most undeserving experience, no further suffering required, the need for further punishment giving way to a chance for complete forgiveness and restoration. Each of us has the compassion and love of God to fathom an appropriate renewal, one that announces the clarification of divinely guided and cocreated intention, a time to soar again, to flourish once more, to truly celebrate the magnificence of being alive, whole and transcendent.

ALLOW WHAT IS TO BE Allow what is to be, accepting its relevance, its purpose, choosing to see its pertinence at this point and place in time; rather than assuming some failure of diligence or your part; some lack of planning or organization; rather than moving to alter or change schedules to ensure a different outcome; to will a more agreeable present: take a moment to allow just what is to be. Is it really more appropriate or efficient to descend on this situation, circumstance, or happenstance with a sense of dismay, resentment, failure for its lack of productivity, results, progress; why berate yourself, others, or fate for this moment of time without accomplishment, without something to show for its existence; perhaps it is asking you to just allow what is to be? As you allow this, strive to realize that this moment may be best spent as it is, unattended, undocumented, unframed – without form or purpose – just as it is – allowing what is to be – realizing it may contain the truth, insight, or enlightenment you are seeking.

Spiritual quests are often about expanding our insight, our vision, our comprehension of what is actually occurring to us in spiritual consciousness. It is often easy to sit back and settle for what appears to us now to be a revelation. Let us be sure we have made the connection with God we were intended to accomplish, knowing we are fully capable of this intricate balance. Continue reading

TRUE BEING Let us proceed today with a sense of wonder, aware of the magnificence that surrounds us, a divine essence running within and through us and all creation – the spirit of God manifested tangible, whole, and complete. Let us demonstrate today the miracle of being, our pursuit of extended life as divine awareness in physical, purposeful form, able and ready to nourish ourselves and others with a fuller vision of perfect possibility. Let us transcend today the fog and distortion of misdirected perception, knowing we have the soulful strength to see through the illusion, with clear eyes, eyes that reflect a wider, more fragrant and robust being, our true being, perfect life alive.

MIRACLE OF BEING We sit together, God, in our joint worlds Holding each other's hands At peace with all and our own creation Knowing each moment is a blessing Each breath a resurrection Every sound or silence an awakening. Clear we are in our purpose: The full utilization of this day of life Singular in its magnificence, its opportunity To move our existence, all existence Further, stronger, wiser, more able To flourish, strive, reach beyond all false Limitations and restrictions, As we lovingly represent The pure miracle of being.

HEART WARENESS With our hearts, the heart is the center of all emotion, it is the mind of our feeling life, always beating a rhythm, circulating the fertile blood and nutrients of our beingness, expressing what is being felt, or even about to be felt, within our feelingness, communicating throughout the body and mind, as it signals out to the surrounding consciousness, a heartlight connection, an expression, able to clearly perceived by others. Our hearts are beacons of our soul based emotional expression, acutely attuned to the feeling and life experience of those around us, connected to us, throughout the world. As others experience joy and elation, so too do we share the same rhythmic expression, as others suffer, we too share in this suffering. Our hearts are our genetic centers of life connected, of our truly evolutionary essence, leading us to our true survival law – the law of compassion, empathy, kindness, connectedness – the realization that through love, we together as a humanity, a cohort, a community, a nation, a world, a universe having the innate biological framework to step beyond our differences, our intolerances, our false thinking and feelings, embracing that we are hardwired for well-being, flourishing, love, and contentment – not just on an individual basis, but on a collective basis. Work to strengthen this heart centered gift, to evolve personally, and as you do, collectively – living by the heart’s rhythms – its grace – its innate wisdom.

What if, as has been suggested by my recent guidance posted earlier this week, that we, here on earth are actually the vanguard of life in this universe: the first step, and as such, the only fully sentient, conscious life that has been, so far, accomplished by this magnificent universal life form. Today, while again meditating on our place in the universe, I received the guidance below titled simply The Whole. As I read this note, I think of the renowned theoretical physicist that I have fully referenced in my book series, and his ontological conceptual quantum framework outlined in his inspired book titled Wholeness and the Implicate Order. My guidance often ends with a conceptual push forward, encouraging some confusion, wonder, and future investigation. Today it is the final phrase of this note: “to enhance and enliven the whole of wholes.” Continue reading

incubator – noun - an enclosed apparatus providing a controlled environment for the care and protection of premature or unusually small babies. • an apparatus used to hatch eggs or grow microorganisms under controlled conditions. North American a place, especially with support staff and equipment, made available at low rent to new small businesses. At night, peering into the observable universe with shooting stars and galaxies fully arrayed, I often wonder at the other planets, like earth, that must surely abound with life, also populating this infinite space. Sure that the encounter with extraterrestrial life will be accomplished as the beacons humanity rockets towards the outer limits announce our existence. Yet, recently, my guidance is leading me to another possibility. One that is strangely unnerving but has its own logic. That is; we here on earth, are actually the vanguard of life in this universe. We are the first step, and as such, the only sentient, conscious life that has been so accomplished by this magnificent universal life form so far. Ok, let’s focus on this question for a moment. What if the sentient life we are experiencing is the first, fully formed universal life, and we are actually existing within a virtual first cause test tube world, the first life, the advanced life, the incubator of all potential universal life? What if we are really at the beginning of universal time, and we are the evolutionary offspring of a dynamic, living growing universal beingness. An offspring created via controlled evolution, fully equipped with the desire and capability to explore and inhabit the universe. Although we may shutter at the fate of exiting and future life under this scenario, that is, life in the hands of what appears to be, at best, a toddler humanity, a first step is for us to understand our place in this cosmic universal life intention. I have been meditating on this very concept, and while sitting and meditating on my back deck this morning, I could sense the very life energy growing and expanding our existence, always creating, fostering, and supporting life: pushing us forward; never ceasing. The poem below titled New Life, I believe was an initial inspired response to these ruminations. Continue reading

Let us, each today, reaffirm our worthiness, allowing nothing to act as an impediment to the securing of our rightful beingness – the attainment of our genuine, authentic existence. OUR WORTHINESS We are each worthy of living, thriving, being – created to soar, to reach beyond mere existence and touch the heavens – fully capable of transcendence, clarity, and ascendancy – with our full potential waiting to be revealed and unleashed into vibrant being – released and forgiven, without guilt or shame, cherished by universal grace and understanding. We are, each and every one, worthy to be, to love, to express, to touch our genuine, authentic selves, our life given natural purpose, a perfect expression of Godliness, a marvel, a wonder, and integral facet of an evolving and expanding oneness, a life-ness always in the process of becoming. No one, nothing, no thought of guilt or shame, sin or turmoil, has the right or capability of impeding our rightful beingness, our destiny with joy, peace, love, and happiness – our heaven on earth.

We are the physical missionaries of God in this world, the keepers of existence as we know and experience it now. Through our purposeful, mindful action, we are the creators of heaven, and I am afraid, the stokers of a very intense and fiery hell on earth. We are the soft tentacles of God. Let us, today, realize that we must hold fast to the vision of a more worthy being, molding this worthy vision in our hearts, our souls, and in our every single thought: knowing that even one positive thought or gesture will nudge all of us forward.

It is not what we see that hampers our spiritual progress, it is the antiquated lenses we peer through, ground by our years of well meaning indoctrination, tinted by our concepts and supposed truths, distorted by even our epiphanies and peak experiences, producing a cataract generating conglomeration, fogging even the most obvious insights.

OUR EARNEST EFFORT We are mobile creatures in search of our origin, our primal essence, the first cause of our very existence; this search ignites our creative center, as we conjure gods, rulers, myths, magic, wizards, and/or shamans to interpret our place, our possible situation; perhaps to connect with our creator, to return to where we originated, once more. This molten force of will has formed a conjoined intention, given life to this distant, passionate pursuit; overwhelming, unwieldy, forging a consciousness of human longing, a continual cry for our lost place, our desire to be spiritually comforted by our universal, ancestral Mother – Father – the formulator of our beingness. From this earnest effort, we, humankind, manifested a presence, a conscious response, the hoped for overseer, a gentle, engaged strength – a God – a tangible consciousness, a combined soul evolved through and by conflicting views, this presence finds being, and provides love, peace, joy, and happiness – our combined intention.

Although God communicates with us through our own language, expressing in the terms and idioms and icons we most understand: perhaps God’s language, is the first language of sincere expression, primarily vibrational, emotional, intentional as the note below conveys; and we – if we really listen with our full hearts, are capable of translating this communication into our own words and symbols. Perhaps, our literal brainware has been engineered to translate this God message, and does so, if we will intently listen, with faith, for its song. Continue reading

OUR RUMBLE Like a strong, purposeful current, let us approach life with energy, vitality, fully aware of our destination, well able to clear the way when required, or on occasion, flow over, around, or through. Today, let the intention of this current, wake us, ready to flow forward, winding and twisting, pounding when necessary, as our rumble hastens our progress, establishes our momentum. And when our activity proves sufficient, our rest warranted, allow for placid, peaceful moments to solidify the divine connection that fosters our flow, expands our awareness; awakening, as tranquil is mirrored from and through our very being to all adjoining existence.

I am finishing the final editing of what will be the introductory book of a three part FINDING GOD ON THE TRAIN – NOTES ON ENLIGHTENMENT series, this first book titled THE CRYSTAL PATH. I believe this is the best approach for my nearly eight-hundred-page Finding God On The Train writing effort: simply more readable and publishable. Continue reading

Much of my spiritual life is spent listening, and then it is occupied with interpreting and understanding what is being conveyed. At times, there appears to be a theme or concept connecting what I am inspired to write and record. In late March, I received the Meditation Guidance below titled New Ground. NEW GROUND We attach ourselves to the function of things, to the sequence of things, to the process followed, the ritual required, hoping to find structure, concreteness, an order where only fluid change exists – eternity, where only impermanence abides; today let us release our grasp and allow the fiction of control to ease, moving toward looser, more spontaneous paradigms; mindful, aware, stretching each moment by truly being in it, engaged and ultimately unscripted, a free range being, without role, egoless, forsaking the comfortable for new ground, virgin, fertile - requiring the shedding of repetitive being.

OUR DETERMINATION The strength of existence lies in determination, the ability and willingness to continue onward, forward without delay or hesitation, with a sense of hope for what may only be a dim notion, a hunch, an inspiration calling us towards a greater and more potent good; beckoning us.

Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive. Mathew 21:22. So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24. Much of New Thought is based on these two quixotic and revolutionary quotes offered by Jesus of Nazaeth, that without question demonstrate his clear and profound comprehension of the very essence of our relationship with God. I believe Jesus would read the guidance I post below, titled Our Tender Grasp, and be in agreement. Continue reading

MANEUVERABILITY The essence of success is maneuverability, making adjustments as needed or desired, shifting course to avoid pitfalls or negative consequences, taking full advantage of positive currents or momentum, open to every advantage, aware of potential possibilities or oversights, hands steady on the wheel, mind strategically fixed on the destination, fully knowing what is intended, with clarity or purpose and performance; keenly transfixed. This maneuverability often is the deciding factor in the overcoming of diversity, the unexpected, the setback, the uncharted delay – assisting with an attitude prepared for counter response and correction – able to think creatively under pressure, to maintain emotional balance, unafraid of risk or consequence, locked and loaded for success – with the face and soul of a living hero, capable and courageous.
