You are necessary: the birthing of a new humanity

We, who teach meditation, spiritual well-being, or the inner sciences, are all saying the same thing. We are joined by those who are opening the paradigms of science, psychology, the understanding of vibration and morphic fields: we’re all saying the same thing. Humanity is either destroying itself or birthing a new level of awareness and … More You are necessary: the birthing of a new humanity

Enlightenment is the space between: interlude

Milarepa, a great Tibetan yogi and enlightened being, was asked about enlightenment. He said, “It is the space between thoughts.” The interlude of the breath is the way to discover this. Enlightenment is a particular neutrality that is lived within each moment. It is not attracted to anything because the state of enlightenment perceives all … More Enlightenment is the space between: interlude

Simple

We breathe in, we breathe out. This simplicity invites us. We long for ease, harmony, and peace, and the truth is that it is often close at hand. Breathe. Feel how simple a moment can be. Please dedicate your meditation to the well-being of all beings, and especially consider those in disaster, war, or deprivation. … More Simple

Peace Between Breaths

This week, we continue with the Interlude, Step 7 of the practice. And today’s meditation considers the space between breaths – as all interludes take place in that lovely space in-between. With a gentle transition from the in-breath to the out-breath, the whole body relaxes. Extra attention to the quality of that transition can bring insight into … More Peace Between Breaths

Peace and Quiet

There are  many reasons to learn to meditate, but one is inner quiet. The interlude between the breaths is an excellent example of this. The interlude after breathing in is the point of “just enough” registered by the body/lungs. The interlude after breathing out also is a point of “just enough” once again registered by … More Peace and Quiet

The truth of it

Heart-mind is one. It is one broad spectrum of relatedness that includes and makes thinking, creativity, associations, and ease possible. Separated – or brainwashed and acculturated to believe that heart and mind are separate – the problems of separateness result: violence, judgement, animosity, negation and limitation. Heart-mind are provide a limitlessness of responses, possibilities, creative … More The truth of it

“Train in uninterrupted experience.”

The meditation retreat in Milwaukee that just completed began with the instruction to “train in uninterrupted experience.” It is a quote from Master Padmasambhava. What does that mean? How does one do that? The Practice is one method. The meditation says what that means better than anything I can write. Enjoy your practice.   Downloadable … More “Train in uninterrupted experience.”

Heroes of Compassion

Humanity does more damage to itself than nature. Over and over again, we fight, we kill, we steal, and perpetuate the ways of death. Change can only come from you and I, from each person addressing the aggression within, addressing the sense of entitlement and the divisiveness which we live within ourselves. In that clarity … More Heroes of Compassion

New born

Have you ever held a new born baby? Have you ever massage or caressed that soft, vulnerable, precious new life? The newness is tactile, as is the purity. This is what is being cultivated with the current phase of the Intermediate practice of Living Awareness. “Our inside creates our outside.” Therefore, if one’s inside state … More New born

True freedom

This intermediate meditation continues the focus that the inner comportment of the person creates the outer actions and life expression. In other words, our inside creates our outside. Modern life distracts us from what is going on inside. Yet, it is the agitation or peace, the contentment or dissatisfaction, the inspiration or frustration that is … More True freedom

Choose steadfastness

To choose steadfastness is to choose awareness. Distractions and interruptions are impediments to a conscious and fulfilling life. Steadfastness is similar to the power of a brook as it flows. When unimpeded, it can furrow through land, create new banks, support living creatures, and express its innate being. When impeded or truncated, the brook is … More Choose steadfastness

Then, our mind, heart, and breath are shared with all beings on Mother Earth. Mother Earth is One. The interdependence is complete, flawless, and beautiful. We are part … More * Creating Harmony
