“Sometimes it’s better to remain practical, grounded, instead of flying off into outer space every chance you get.” More…
In one of my recent social media postings about the concept of “Recapitulation”, more than one person recently told me that one must not keep dwelling on past events. They even went so far as to say that “recapitulating” life events is actually harmful! Well, it’s more than mere remembering.
Since we are talking about personal improvement and spiritual development, a special definition of the word “recapitulation” is warranted. More…
This is body work as seen from a dream. Simply explained, and if done with proper intent, its purpose is to transfer the burgeoning intent of awakening from your body to another person who is interested in awakening or who is stuck in the process of awakening. It is a method you may try if you run across another person who thinks they are ready to be activated. More…
“One way to perceive things within the human perceptive framework is in terms of seeing energy emanating from the luminous “egg” of human awareness – as paraphrased from the mystic philosopher and Toltec shaman Carlos Castaneda.” More…
Earth, I have chosen to be with you here, now…
Because I love you.
I am bound to you, free.
You provided everything that was born
into my beloved mother’s body to live in this world.
And she in turn bore me from her/your womb.
And everything that I am, here… now…
All this me, this me-ness.. is actually…
A gift from You.
For all the times I have traversed this soil-crust that is your swollen fertile belly.
With the thought-maddened brow of an artist,
or the grace-glowing flushed red cheek of a carefree child,
For all the good and misdeeds passed from which I learned and experienced,
and all through which you supported me unfailingly
to this here and now Outcome,
this Sacred Space I now co-create with You…
I say now:
Have all of Our Parts come together.
mothers, fathers, siblings all,
Love-lorn winged of the air,
and the bowing stems that wreath the valley
below wind-swept sentinel trees.
Take the filament of Love that we have grown and groomed so long…
And let me set it alight within my heart
as sheer awareness of you, Dear Earth,
so long neglected under my soles…
Let me cast all memory into the wind,
and set alight a remembrance of you when I first came forth
on that brilliant Dawn Before Time Ever Existed.
You there, ever holding up my lineage,
whilst I sit upon my ancestors’ shoulders…
Let me embody this filament
streaming from your core
coursing upward through this crystalline body,
shot into Infinity
to those other places…
Where I co-exist
as a mere pollen speck
on a butterfly’s nectar-yearning tongue…
or a as a distant star-sprite’s hope for peace
in a Place like this here…
Here, where we can share the Magnificence
of the everything that
you are I am we.
All entwined yet unfettered
for the place your warm breath may blow us together…
Thank you, thank you Earth.
