We can stop struggling with what occurs and see its true face without calling it the enemy. It helps to remember that our spiritual practice is not about accomplishing anything—not about winning or losing—but about ceasing to struggle and relaxing as it is. That is what we are doing when we sit down to meditate. That attitude spreads into the rest of our lives.

Hubba, Hubba, Hubba!

Ya know how the bud of a flower looks? Already attractive, special, and unique yet still barely hinting at the splendor and magnificence to come. Oblivious itself of how its presence will add to the world.

Rose bud,
The Universe

Whether it is a castle or a button, if you are using it as your object of attention, it is summoning Life Force. It is the feel of the Life Force that life is about. The reason that you are summoning it is inconsequential.



For just a moment, can you imagine that on the day the earth was created, I’d want to experience her in every imaginable form?


Now can you imagine that when it came to creating the animals, I couldn’t just pick one - but would want to soar through her skies, swim in her oceans, and burrow in her fields?

Excellent. I had to be all of her animals, to experience all of their secrets.

So when it came to having dominion over all things, it must now be just as obvious that I had to be everyone.

And I am -
The Universe
