Let’s Invite Each Other Higher

‘I often try to imagine a world where we are not in competition with our fellow humans, but where we truly, madly, deeply soulebrate when others actualize their dreams. Imagine that. A world where we get excited for each other when we achieve – where we do not see another’s accomplishments as a reminder of what we have not yet actualized – but as living proof that it is possible for all of us. I love it when people accomplish something they have set out to do, when the phoenix rises from the ashes with actualization on its wings. Let’s invite each other higher. Let’s encourage each other to believe in our shared magnificence!’

Our Hearts Don’t Wear Watches

‘You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch – it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation begins…’

SACRED PURPOSE: Helping fellow Humans.

‘I consider it a high honor when I am asked to help a fellow human to stay afloat during a difficult time. To be granted the opportunity to gift back to humanity is no small thing. Our sacred purpose often has a relational quality to it. Conceived in union, expressed through union, dying to union with the divine. Always together, never apart. While we are here in embodied form, let’s get close and help each other.’

What Abundance Are You Asking The Universe For?

‘Abundance is an odd word. What is abundance to a materialist is not abundance to a spiritual seeker. What is abundance in your mind may not be abundance in your heart. What is abundance to the unhealthy ego may not be abundance to the soul. Best we define our meaning before we ask the universe for more abundance. We might just get it, while the real treasure lies buried below. There is nothing abundant about that which distracts us from a life of meaning. We should be careful what we wish for…’

“because he does not dwell therein he never departs” Lao Tzu

II – Self Development

TAO TE CHING

‘When everyone recognizes beauty to be only a masquerade, then it is simply ugliness. In the same way, goodness, if it is not sincere, is not goodness. So existence and non-existence are incompatible. The difficult and easy are mutually opposites. Just as the long and short, the high and the low, the loud and soft, the before and the behind, are all opposites and each reveals each other.

Therefore the wise man is not conspicuous in his affairs or given to much talking. Though troubles arise he is not irritated. He produces but does not own; he acts but claims no merit; he builds but does not dwell therein, and because he does not dwell therein he never departs.’
