Forgiveness, as an act or effort done unto another, is unnecessary the moment there is the realization: I am all there is. Once “the other” is wholly recognized as I (in the form of a reflection/ aspect/ opposite of “me”), the question of needing to forgive doesn’t arise. The reflection/ aspect/ opposite is embraced and dissolved in the space of I, and there is no other left to forgive, and no “me” left to act as forgiver. Forgiveness just happens. Rather, gratitude happens. Grace happens. (Nothing happens.)

The Self is always at rest, always at peace. It is Peace. The “person” we perceived, who is now no longer in our perception (i.e. in character), never exists separate from that. When we experience someone passing on, it is akin to their exiting (front)stage, because (in consciousness) we co-create that script in this particular play. It doesn’t mean their true existence is over (or even altered!) with the end of their role in this play; it only means we agree to stop perceiving them in the form that they played. (We even agree to perceive their “aging.”) They were never that character, they were unborn and undying, and what exists is eternally at rest in peace!!  (more…)

There are a number of “spiritual near-truths” out there… and a near-truth is as far removed from Truth as anything else. That is the nature of illusion!

Here’s near-truth #1: Time heals everything.

Time does’t heal anything; the realization that there’s nothing to heal does 🙂 It’s the realization that healing is simply a remembrance of Self — of our inherent wholeness — always already available right-here-right-now, obscured merely by our stories. And in any moment that consciousness expands into this realization, one experiences “healing.” (more…)

Repressing and recycling feelings and emotions are two sides of the same coin.

Most of us recognize what repression is. Recycling is when we believe we are harmlessly “venting,” “sharing” or “expressing” feelings and emotions, but we’re only passing them through the mind, and then talking out loud our thoughts (reactions) about these emotions.

Both recycling and repressing lead to the same thing — stuckness, and eventually stagnation, in which hardened emotion turns into mental and physical conditions. The key is to let emotion flow as pure energy, in and out.  (more…)

Wholly meeting pain

To truly and wholly and honestly meet pain as it arises in the emotional or physical body, the story must be released. The story is the defensive device we use to remain invulnerable to and separated from the stupendous, gut-wrenching, annihilating all-ness of pain. The story lives in the mind as thought, and by thinking about it, (telling it) and keeping it alive, we’re refusing to listen to Truth in pain. We think that getting validation for the story is bringing listening and healing (wholeness) to the pain, but actually (and ironically), validating the story gives life (longevity) to the story instead of giving Life (Love) to the pain — it makes the pain go unheard and never be allowed, embraced, digested and integrated. And so it festers, and becomes entrenched as disease and suffering. This is why the pointer to Truth is to wholly feel the pain and release the story. Without the story, without the ability to assign roles of villain, victim and hero, without the ability to deflect energy in blame, one truly and intimately knows pain — past the inflection of “death” — and Truth reveals “on the other side.”

Many years ago, I played some squash and had the opportunity to enjoy a few lessons with the world-renowned Khan family of coaches in Seattle. I heard one of them say, “You don’t play squash to get fit, you get fit to play squash.”

Some years later when I was riding a profound low and a beloved guide wondered why I didn’t seek out music for healing, I heard my inner guru say, “You don’t do music to be healed, you must be healed to do/serve music!”  (more…)

When we tune into a particular radio channel, we become extensions of that channel, channeling that content and allowing more and more of it to be created and manifest in the physical world. The channel (frequency) we tune into and align with is our contribution to creating the manifest world. And at any given moment, we can only be tuned into one particular radio frequency!

The thing that most of us find nearly impossible to perceive with our contracted 5-sense notion of reality, is that the channel (frequency) of a “problem” is discretely different than the channel (frequency) of its transformation, its metamorphosis. We remain tuned to the channel of the problem and expect a solution to come from knowledge and analysis of all the facts, the content of what is, the “data of the darkness” 🙂 And via our reactions to it all. All the while we’re only channeling (creating) more of the same into the manifest world, including via the “solutions” we invent and innovate in reaction, which are only new manifestations of the same frequency. Yes, there is “change,” and yet it’s only the same problem changing faces! (more…)
