To see our own light

We cannot live in a world that is not our own, in a world that is interpreted for us by others.  An interpreted world is not a home.  Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light.

~ Hildegard of Bingen

life and death

It is a seeing of every moment of life against the horizon of death, and a challenge to incorporate that awareness of dying into every moment so as to become more fully alive.

Consciousness gives everything a transformation.  Your love is no longer addressed to anybody in particular.  It does not mean that you stop loving.  It simply means you become love, you are love, your very being is love.  Your breathing is love, your heartbeats are love.  Awake you are love, asleep you are love.

~ Osho, from Tarot in the Spirit of Zen

autumn approaches

Autumn begins with a subtle change in the light, with skies a deeper blue, and nights that become suddenly clear and chilled.  The season comes full with the first frost, the disappearance of migrant birds, and the harvesting of the season’s last crops.

When we surrender, we allow the universe to work its magic; we say yes to infinite possibilities; we trust that things will work out as they are meant to; and we give ourselves permission to let go of the outcome.  This can be liberating, intimidating, blissful, scary, and a swirl of so many other emotions.  But in the end, if we are true to our heart, life unfolds with magnificence… and we get to celebrate.

transformation

September 2015C 076ab

Transform your thoughts and embrace love as a way of life.  Your soul’s dance is one of great joy and by acknowledging its beauty you foster the awakening spirit and create positive outcomes in all aspects of life.  The essence of being alive is to live like you mean it and transform limiting beliefs.  By doing so you inspire the heart which will in return guide you along a path of bliss to a happy and passionate life.
