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!

Love Thy Neighbor

Today I want to challenge us all, including myself. Pretty much all spiritual and religious teachings advise us to love our neighbor. But how many of us do it? Most of us avoid our neighbors! But here is the thing; do you want to be happy or suffer? It’s that simple. What we put out into the world comes back to us, indirectly and at one time or another. Thomas Merton says: “Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.” It may be easy to love someone or be kind to someone who treats us kindly and lovingly. But what about when someone barks in your face, or wants to start an argument saying something that pushes your button, saying something racist or homophobic for example. Can you return love for hatred? Many of us who consider ourselves healers or lightworkers are very sensitive. We may feel delight when deep in meditation, but when someone cuts us off in traffic we point a certain finger at them. Our number one goal when someone verbally or energetically attacks us is to not contract, to keep our energy high, in love and nonjudgment. One local Seattle teacher, Matt Kahn, suggests either blessing or complimenting the person. For example, someone tells us they don’t like something about us. We take a breath, and say something that feels authentic but loving, such as, Thank you for having the courage to express your feelings. Or you could laughingly say, Sometimes I don’t care for myself either! Here is the thing. Someone who is attacking you or... read more

The Essence of Religion

Organized religion has gotten a bad rap by many over the years, and much of it is well deserved, in my opinion. There is the joke about spiritually evolved people getting excited about their understanding of the Spirit world, and the devil comes along and says, “Great, now let me help you organize that.” With organization came hierarchy, patriarchy, abuse, control, fear, sin, shame and the list goes on. Of course, there were some evil forces behind the organizing, to keep us in line, afraid, easy to control and manipulate. People actually became convinced that they themselves not only were not a part of God or the Divine, or that God was some judgmental dysfunctional man in the sky, but also that they needed to go through a priest or other male authority figure as a go between to connect with Source, even though most of these priests and hierarchy themselves were hardly living in align with the Divine. But let’s look at the roots of religion, the main beliefs or goals. Mayans Popul Vuh: Your are myself. We are all one. Christian: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Mathew 7.12 Buddhism: Do not offend others as you would not like to be offended. U’danavarga 5.18 Confucius: What we do not wish to be done to us, do not do to others. Annalects 15.23 Judaism: What you do not wish for yourself, do not wish for others. Talmud Shabbot 31.A Islam: No one will be a true believer, unless he wishes the same for others as for himself Sunnat Brahmannism (Hindu): Never do unto... read more

Volunteers, no Victims

First, let me be clear, in the deepest sense, or in reality, there are no victims, and actually, there is no death. I’ll address the death part next week, but regarding victimization, of course, in this world of drama and illusion, we have plenty of appearances of victim hood. And believe me, I have played the victim many times in this life. I’ve been spanked, robbed, assaulted, abused, attacked, run over, had cars stolen and many other apparent injustices. If we are not careful, these situations will define us as a victim, and lead to a fearful attitude towards life, and guess what, we attract energetically what we fear. We all know people who are on high alert, have alarm systems around their home, have locks everywhere, maybe live in a gated community, and still, somehow find a way to be assaulted or robbed. It is because they are putting fear out into the world, and attracting what they fear. But here is the truth, at least as I see it: there truly are no victims, only volunteers. Back home in the spirit world, we make agreements with others spirits before we come here to Earth. As spiritual, pure loving beings, we decide that it would be fun to come down here and experience what we are not, so each life we may decide to try to experience something like say, mistrust, or resentment, or blame, or the other side, being a perpetrator or yes, even a murderer. Like a well designed play or movie, we all have our parts, depending on what we choose to experience, or what... read more
