I must say this was an enlightening experience, the people, the food, the location, the yoga made for a holiday close to the heart.  Thank you so much!

Mary Magdalene and other Shifts for Women

Shift continues to arise out of the Catholic Church. Now Mary Magdalene has been lifted up in the eyes of the Catholic Church, basically to the level of the Apostles. The recent Decree stated that Mary Magdalen “can now rightly be taken by the faithful as a model of women’s role in the Church.” Archbishop Arthur Roche said, “The Holy Father Francis took this decision precisely in the context of the Jubilee of Mercy to signify the importance of this woman who showed a great love for Christ and was much loved by Christ.” The Decree stated that Mary Magdalen “can now rightly be taken by the faithful as a model of women’s role in the Church.” On a related note, there is more good news. In 1900 or so, when women were first allowed into the Olympics, only about 2% of the athletes were women. Now 45% of the athletes are women. Furthermore, women are now showing up in powerful positions all across the world, with the IMF and Federal Reserve now led by women, and Theresa May succeeding David Cameron as Prime Minister, and of course, Hilary Clinton about to become our first woman President. Remember, we don’t move instantly from a patriarchal left brained world to a feminine right brained world. Hilary is a bridge. Not unlike Margaret Thatcher, she runs a lot of masculine energy, but we will move more and more into a world with balanced masculine feminine energies where no man or woman will have to apologize for being kind, caring and considerate as well as powerful and courageous. Now I have some more good news,... read more

You Cannot Fail

You cannot fail; did you know that? Would it not relieve some of the stress, fear and pressure if we all knew that we cannot fail.   Oh sure, there is relative failure. Maybe you go to bat trying to hit a home run and strike out. One could label this a failure. Or you ask for a raise and your boss denies you the raise. Again, this could be perceived this as a failure.   But who is perceiving? And do you want to look at the small picture–what some call illusion–or the big picture–what some call reality?   As always, I try not to lose myself in the small picture, even though we do have to function in this world, and home runs and raises are nice! But in the big big picture, let’s look at it this way. You are a spark of Divine Spirit. You are everlasting love, bravely having a human experience, which is not easy right? You are courageous!   In the spirit world, it’s maybe not quite as brave, because at the time we decide to come to Earth and take on another body, we have the big picture. We know that, although our body and psyche can suffer and go through tremendous pain as a human being, our true self cannot be touched, harmed or hurt. This is good to know!   Maybe it’s like this, someone asks you to go 3 rounds with the best boxer or cage fighter on the planet. Stupid idea right? But what if you knew it was all about having the experience, and that you... read more

Orlando still has a Pulse

Let’s talk about Orlando Florida. I’d like to offer a spiritual overview, the big picture. It is always good to step back out of the emotionality and see what is really going on. If you have heard my commentaries before, today’s message is not new. We are witnessing a cleansing on Earth, a purging of the old energies. As I have said before, the bad news gets the headlines and makes more noise, convincing us that all hell is breaking lose. In a sense, hell is breaking loose, and it has to, before we sense the light behind the dark. As Tagore said, Faith is the bird that feels the light, and sings while the dawn is still dark. Someone told me on Sunday that they felt hopeless, with events like this shooting, that everything is getting worse and is perhaps hopeless. I invite us all to take a breath and reclaim our hope. Everything, even horrid events like this, are an opportunity.  You might even say that the depths of the pain that gets triggered corresponds with the depths of the possibility for healing and shift. When I studied in India at Oneness University Sri Bhagavan taught us about inner and outer life. In the outer world, we do what we need to do to take care of ourselves, our survival issues. If you are in an abusive relationship, call the police or leave the relationship, for example. In the case of Orlando, we would be wise to push for gun control. But the inner world needs attention too! Here is one key. And this is the same... read more
