When we are One with all that is, the paradox is that “your pain is my pain” calls not for solving your pain, but for dis-solving mine!

How so?

When we are One with all that is, we simultaneously realize that the entire play underlying The One ‘differentiated as many’ is to lovingly allow unique experiences through which to recognize and realize Oneness. In truly, lovingly, unconditionally honoring the sovereignty in (and wish for) differentiated experience, it isn’t for (an identity of) “me” to take on another’s unique experience — however ‘good’ or ‘bad’ — and make it mine (in the name of empathy or compassion or unity as solidarity), and then make a mission out of it in any way — whether as fan or savior. It is only for me to allow for every kind of experience, and be there, in Love, should it arise within my physical field of experience. If I’m triggered into sensational excitement or suffering in response to another’s unique experience (‘good’ or ‘bad’), it is an opportunity for me to see that I am identified (attached) with them / that experience in some way, and use it as a clue, a window to look within. The more I look within, the more I see that whatever I experience in vicarious response to another’s experience reveals what is alive within me as attachments. The more I dissolve these within, in Love, the more they dissolve without, in ‘reality.’  (more…)

The villain of our story can only become the hero, when we release them from that role  🙂 More accurately, they can simply be… what they are! Even more accurately, freed from enrollment in our story, we can experience them simply as they are — nothing, and so, all possibility!

Holding on to the past, in any form, is a way of holding on to blame. And blame, (with its partner shame), is a tremendous burden we place squarely on ourselves no matter who or what it’s directed at. Even holding on to nostalgia and “good memories” is an unconscious way of wanting it to be that way instead of this way, the way it is. And this is a subtle form of blame, blame for things not being that way: I wish you were here, I wish it were that way, those were the days… The present moment is the only Truth. It is Love. (more…)

The way to realize you are eternal (and exist not in the way you believe) is simply to immerse in and know wholly and intimately, this moment! This moment has eternity in it. And this moment comes again and again, ripe with the same opportunity.

There’s no such thing as a “hate-filled heart.” (So, we might consider dropping our use of this as rhetoric.) Hatred, like darkness, is an experience we have when Love / Light is cut off… by the mind veils that block off the infinite Heart. It’s the equivalent of sitting in a dark room cut off from the sun shining brightly, and saying: This is a darkness-filled room. Hatred, like darkness, doesn’t “exist” somewhere — it vanishes as soon as the veils drop and Love / Light is allowed!!

Non-doing is not inaction. It is doing in a way that (the identity/agenda of) ‘doer’ is dissolved. When there is action, it is an inevitable and spontaneous movement arising from the center of stillness — ‘doing’ that flows from the depths of being. Ultimately, it is a state in which there is movement in stillness and stillness in movement.  (more…)

One’s unfettered joy/peace is one’s prayer for universal well-being.

No other prayers (directed toward specific people or events) are necessary or useful, and are even dissonant when laden with anxiety or emotional pain!

When concerted prayers “work,” it is because in the moments of praying, the person falls into alignment with Self (/Love), such that mental thought dissolves and the underlying natural peace/joy is allowed to be the dominant frequency for a sustained duration. (In these moments people unwittingly or consciously release all asking.) This emanation has a powerful and profound harmonious effect on all beings, animate and inanimate. This is why a longer havan or mass, or 5-times-a-day salah are conducted — all to dissolve mind and abide in Self for sustained duration. This can naturally happen with/in someone trekking on one of the gorgeous Pacific Northwest trails, with similar effect! Essentially, any activity undertaken with Love and inspiration that puts one “in the zone” and “out of mind” is a prayer! Nothing is more powerful than meditation (without chants or visualization), which unlike concerted prayer is always agenda-less (i.e. nothing specific is being “asked” for or activated). And one who is Self realized is (consciously yet un-self-consciously) in prayer at all times.
