Truth and Beauty: How Stories Point to Divinity Within

"Beauty is truth, truth beauty," – that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. Ode on a Grecian Urn, J. KeatsLike many other people, I love to talk about the most recent developments on Game of Thrones. I have a little "fan club" among my circle of friends. We text about what happened. We discuss it over tea. We predict what might be happening and what patterns are being woven. We search the net for more ideas to share with each other. And we do it all over again each week.It is fun.…See More

3 Things That Change When You Stop Believing Your Own Thoughts

"A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years". - Byron KatieWhat happens if you stop believing your thoughts?1. You stop feeding drama with thoughts and wordsOne of the first things you notice when you stop believing your thoughts is that you are no longer replaying painful…See More

How Psychology Supports Tantra and Other Traditions

"But that's not really me.  I only did that because..." and you try to explain why you did what you did. You say it's because of something in the circumstances of the situation that made you behave as you did.In psychology, we call this the Fundamental Attribution Error.  This core psychological concept says that when we are trying to explain behaviour, we say other people did…See More

Meet Me There

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. - RumiAbout a year ago, at a workshop on love, consciousness and tantric philosophy, I was introduced to a personally revolutionary idea: That boundaries are about where we meet, not places we need to defend.  This was big to me because I had been told I needed to establish better boundaries, hold my boundaries, etc.  While that advice was helpful, the context of a place where we meet instead of a place to…See More

When You Love Yourself

"I love you!", I giggled as I tickled my little girl, and we played on the bed."I love me too!", she yelled. I thought this was a good moment to connect."Great! What do you love about you?", I asked while snuggling her on a big pillow."Everything! I am kind and funny. And I am open. I even try to be open to loving people I don't like!" A few minutes later, she was asleep. I thought about her spontaneous reaction."Do not let anything that happens in life be important enough that you’re willing…See More

Spiritual Peer Pressure

One criticism that is leveled at spiritual seekers is the pattern of running after new spiritual practices as they emerge. In the consciousness community, you can find yourself facing the type of cliqueishness of main stream society. Instead of comparing summer homes, you can be subtly judged for your experiences, or experiences you don't choose.One of my biggest ego traps is living up to who I believe I should be as a spiritual person.  I should be vegan. I should be up at dawn meditating. I…See More

5 Ways to Consciously Release The Past

"All fear comes from thought in the form of memory (past) or projection (future). Thought creates time: past, present, and future. So fear exists and comes from the perceived existence of time. To be free of fear is to be free of time. Since time is a creation of thought, to be free of fear you must be free of thought. Consequently, it is important to awaken and experience your Self outside of thought, existing as eternity. So question all notions of yourself that are creations of thought and…See More

Why I Will Never Ask Why You Love Me

Comedians warn you that there are several danger questions that men just can't survive - do I look fat in this, do you think she's pretty, is there anything you would change about me. And of course why do you love me.I have asked all those. Now, I will never ask you why you love me. To do so is really asking why do you like me. As soon as you start to think that way, you are reinforcing a seperate self in me and drawing my attention to how I can slice and dice myself as different from others.I…See More

I Love You But Do I Like You?

I love you. I've never met you but I can say without hesitation that I love you.  If I meet you,  I will simply be more aware of it.But there's no guarantee that I like you. "I have yet to meet anyone that I didn't love. It's only when I filter them through my mind and endow 'them' with my thoughts do I have the time to like and dislike. Loving is easy, liking is recreational."-Troi TuriTo like you is to be alike. To be alike means that we value many of the same things. To like you is the start…See More

5 Relationship Signs That Point You To Your Truth

Posted on October 18, 2015 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

There are lots of lists out there that teach you how to blame the other person for your relationship issues. They suggest that if you eliminate "this type of person", you will be successful in love



Many spiritual philosophies suggest a) you attract what aligns with your vibration and b) the relationship will reflect your unexamined patterns and cherished beliefs. Together you will create a third entity called your relationship.



Here are signs that your unexamined patterns… Continue
