Spirit-Life Balance

Whilst it has been said there are as many paths to God as there are sentient beings, one pattern that appears to be emerging in the current age is that life for many involves learning how to balance the mundane and the spiritual. And an experience shared by many concerns balancing work with the journey of spiritual awakening. 

Many spiritual legends run along the lines of a yogi or guru entering a cave or forest, or finding enlightenment under a tree. In medieval times one could apply…

Transcending the Bombing of Syria: A Vision for Peace

Unless you’re in the habit of avoiding the news you’ve no doubt caught wind of reports of escalating violence in Syria. After two and a half years of civil war the news that the Syrian President had launched a chemical attack on his own people recently made headlines.

In short order, the US weighed in with their opinion. The rhetoric went along the lines that the only possible response was to fire missiles on Syrians to ensure that such behaviour does not escalate.

Closer to…

Learning how to First Love Yourself (FLY) can be a lifelong journey. Many of us start life with examples and challenges that are designed by our soul to instigate a search for self-love. For some, this journey takes us through the experience of someone else believing in us before we can realize love for ourselves. Others are born with a sublime clarity when it comes to love. Yet, no matter what your path or level of awareness, loving yourself is the answer.

Ernest Holmes, the author…

The Archetypes of the Masculine Shadow

The path to marrying passion and compassion is fraught with pitfalls. When we stumble into our shadow it is harder to see where we are going. Yet, no matter how deep the darkness, we will always be able to find our way back.

The Divine Masculine stirs up and loves the world. Throwing the spear of passion–to better understand the world we live in–is a part of spirit unfolding in form. Yet there was a time when spirit found itself amongst sabre-toothed tigers and quickly realized that…

Recent Contemplation about the Divine Masculine

The Divine Masculine is aware of who he is, and a man that has begun to embody this awareness opens a doorway to a blissful love.  He understands that he has qualities to both stir up and love the world.  And even his stirring up the world is really about shaking forms and effects up so that he can understand them more profoundly. After all, Spirit in form needs to function in form.

However, an important Truth has been misplaced for many over the past age.  The Divine Masculine is as…

Balanced Awakening

The truth is that we are all One. We have been called to do a simple, yet great work. Amidst this transition into a great age of expanding awareness of Love many Light workers are experiencing Oneness.

What is a Light worker? Anyone who recognizes an Infinite Creative-Sustaining Force and actively claims their unity with It is a Light worker. A Light worker will gradually, sequentially and inevitably be led to the experience of Oneness.

The experience of Oneness is one of the…

A Taste of Acceptance

You may or may not have noticed, but a revolution of red has been unfolding over the past few days.  A Facebook profile picture explosion has been casting graphical debris even as the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) deliberates upon two critical marriage equality cases.

When I first heard that some genius had decided that this unfolding event would benefit from a visual symbol to represent support for equality in love I changed my profile picture.  The idea of expressing…

Acceptance and Same-Sex Marriage

At the heart of the position often presented opposing same-sex marriage is non-acceptance.  The most intriguing response I've seen suggested to date is that marriage should be a private affair, separate from government.  Some even go so far as to suggest the use of Domestic Relations Agreements.

When I hear about ideas such as Domestic Relations Agreements the word acceptance, or lack thereof, comes to mind. Why should there be two tiers of legislated recognition for the benefits that…
