The way of life

Life reveals contrast.  Life brings us conflict.  Life can be a struggle that we resist or an eternal life we live.  We can flow with the river or be a rock eroded over time.  Life is like our body when it is trying fight a virus, there is an internal struggle, a war really, that is taking place to bring harmony back to the body.  The way of life is as it is so that consciousness can experience perceived separateness to know oneness.  When we are presented with opportunities to flow with life we get to choose which path we will take.  The path of resistance is struggle but eventually leads to surrender.  Life can be a fire that burns away what is temporal, revealing what is eternal.  The path of eternal life is living as a human form in harmony with life to enjoy the miracle of life.  As eternal consciousness, we manifested as form to experience the formless.

Life is Easy

Life is Easy Did you know life really isn’t hard at all? Life is easy. When we try so hard to control life, life is hard because life can’t be controlled. But when we know life can’t be controlled, life is easy because we are along for the ride. Then we see the ride has a…

Call me crazy

I saw an image, a picture really, or maybe it was a video in my head.  What I saw was Adam, inanimate Adam, the dirt man lying in the arms of God.  This Adam was lifeless but looked like Adam.  Arguably the whole Garden story is a poem and very metaphorical but hang with me…

Fear never motivates

In the last post I talked about “What’s your motivation?”  The truth is love motivates you.  Love is what you are.  Love made you.  We forget that truth.  We operate out of the opposite.  We operate out of fear.  Fear never motivates. The word motivate is a form of the word motive.  The etymology (word origin)…

Do you SEE me?

I and the Father are one…Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me (Jesus) The lie of separation is why Jesus came.  We humans believed we were separate from the divine.  In this separation mindset we built societal structures, mythologies, religions, philosophies and more that assumed God was…

The Lego Moment

“OUR discovery of God is, in a way, God’s discovery of us.” (Thomas Merton) The contemplatives and the mystics (which are really the same thing) talk about “living in the present moment.”  Actually there are many traditions that have discovered the divine power of living in the present moment.  This can be a difficult concept…

Have you ever been inspired?

Have you ever been inspired? Have you ever witnessed a great moment and felt something inside that pulled you beyond your own perceived limitations? Have you ever thought “I want to do that” or “what if I could do that?” How about an athlete that breaks a record or a baby that takes a first…

The Kingdom of Love

Matt 5:20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (ESV) Verses like that have been used by religion to put fear into people’s lives.  When fear comes, love has no chance.  That is why perfect love casts out fear.  How…

Ginger snaps and Jack hugs

Do you have a favorite food? Do you have a not so favorite food? We all have foods we like and dislike based on taste or texture or smell or some other sense. Often we have experience to support our assertion that food is good or bad based mostly on our opinion. Sometimes we have…

What Now? – not an disinfectant

Disinfectant: a chemical liquid that destroys bacteria or causing the destruction of bacteria. Once we know our inclusion and union and adoption as a child of God…once we “see” who we really are and we “see” our Abba…then what, what now?  If you haven’t ventured into the depths of sonship, you should check out these posts…
