Honor

To honor is to respect a thing or being as it is. To acknowledge its truth and purpose as it has seen fit to meet it. Honor is a gesture of recognition of the many ways a thing could go and the specific way it went.

Honor is the acknowledgment of the humanity each person must grapple with and rise above. To honor is to do no harm and to uplift the harmless into prominence. Honor is the fundamental unshakeable choice that is still a choice, and which shows the character of the ones who choose it.

It is a branching thing; it begets its own likeness. To behave honorably is to honor all around you; to honor another is to honor all as well.

There is a ripple effect from the actions of an honorable one. Honor is then spread around like butter; it becomes the norm, the smoothness, the melt. Honor becomes the standard of the day and then requires effort to remove.

Without honor there is a blankness waiting, to be filled by anything else instead. To generate honor in any situation is to exclude that which would degrade. Honor is the course of honor itself. It is a true thing. It is a choice. ❀

Amplify

To amplify is to take what exists and make it more so. You can amplify a feeling or a thought; you can amplify a reality or an imagined experience. Some times appear more amplified than others. That’s just how it is.

If you aren’t aware of what is going on, within you or around you, you can add to the chaos and fear in the world through your attention. When it gets fixed on a sadness or an anger, and you dwell there, or engage in a test of willpower, those elements will be amplified. If you attend to a flower or a raindrop or a frog, that is what will be amplified. If you bring awareness to the fundamental love that runs in your veins, the resonant energy out of which you are created, then that is what you will amplify out into the world.

That which you amplify becomes more so, and informs the shape of the world. When you want a solution, be careful not to amplify the problem as you perceive it. Note the problem, of course, but focus on solutions. Keep in mind that one solution is never enough; nothing is ever that simple. Keep in mind also that you are not required to solve the world’s problems alone. Instead, we recommend that you amplify the experience or the framework of solving, into which input from many sources may be received and out of which many types of solutions may emanate.

Amplify the qualities you wish to have more of in the world, not the narrow one-time solutions or reasons or approaches, but the energy of solving, the energy of rationality, the energy of approach. Bring in the essence of the healing activities you seek, and ground them. They will grow, exponentially. They will amplify.

It is like shining a bright light on everything. Brightness, as well as illumination, as well as that which is illumined, they all grow. ❀

Delight

The emotion of delight is often confusing for humans. There are so many elements to feel all the time, about feelings one is having and whether or not one should. For some reason, over time, humans seem to grow shy about the simple, deep directness of delight.

Delight is fundamental. It is simple. It is safe. It is a blossoming sensation, arising from within the heart and mind. It can be as easy as a laugh, breaking forth in spontaneous combustion of the soul, a little blip of joy escaping and then bursting like a bubble in air.

Delight is sometimes anticipated, which can either increase or decrease the actual experience of delight. Your choice. Your view. Your perspective.

Allowing yourself to be surprised by the world – for some people, that is a challenge. But for the moments when you rest in confidence of the space the world holds for you, any beauty, any connection, any glimpse of the holy nature of existence can bring delight.

It is not often thought of in scripture, but simply to be in the world is the delight of the gods, who cannot fully incarnate because of their nature. They find delight everywhere on Earth. They do not, as some worry, delight in the suffering of mortals. But they do wonder, occasionally, at the lack of delight mortals show.

When did you all become jaded, and tired, and spent? Do you not glance up in your dusty cell to note the fragile beauty of the new-spun spider’s web? And do you not, when she catches a fly, delight? Not for the woe of the insect entrapped, but for the demonstration of the arachnid’s art, and of course, the prospect of their supper. And do you not, for that moment of delight, forget the sorrow of being yourself, trapped in the world?

Delight is the path to liberation, spiders, flies, et al. ❀

There is always movement somewhere

You may feel stuck or frozen at times, or lost, like things are not moving along the proper channels. But there is always something happening, whether you know it, or like it, or not. There is not really a thing such as stuckness, though it might be a feeling you have, or the interpretation you make, when things are slow.

You may be staring too hard in one direction, missing the flow happening right beside you, or towards the back, or just under the surface. Sometimes it helps to remember that this is the case. Sometimes it is easy to forget.

Try not to get so caught up in staring at the stuck bits that you believe that is all there is.

Nothing holds still forever, for better, or for worse.

Everything moves and changes.

Even if the things you want to be moving appear to be standing still, it is not generally the case.

We just want to say, it’s much easier to relax if you understand this simple thing. Even in the depths of difficult times, when movement seems impossible, somewhere in the world a bird is singing, and the ice has begun to thaw. ✩

Patience

Patience is that thing where you are feeling impatient but you bide your time.

It is the thing where you really want to jump out of your chair, but remain holding your seat.

Patience is when you bite your tongue, not waiting for an opening to say your piece, but hoping for the respite from your own wild thoughts and precarious ego, replacing them instead with a patience and curiosity, a willingness to wait and see what happens next.

Patience is friends with faith and confidence, although not wholly reliant on them for wellbeing and existence.

Patience waits by the door, alert to the comings and goings without needing to interfere.

Patience is aware of the power of patience, the wisdom of patience, and patience is its own reward. ✩

All life is an expression of love

Everyone came into existence on the physical plane as an imperfect expression of unconditional love. Imperfect, because if you show up on Earth, you are living in conditional reality, and therefore cannot easily express your true essence.

This is the basic difficulty of being human, along with the powerful illusion of separateness from each other, and the loss of feeling a part of All That Is. But this is why you are here. You are trying to learn things that cannot be learned in any other way. You are trying to experience and express those aspects of being which can only happen here.

It is not easy, but it is important. Necessary. Because all of this is in fact interconnected, and if you bring conscious effort to believing that, behaving as if it is so, and experiencing your life this way, then you have moved everything forward a step, towards harmony, peace, and truth.

You do not have to do this. But this is what you are called to do. You choose whether or not to answer. Some days you might sleep in. There is no punishment, or shirking of duty. There is simply showing up, waking up, sending out and receiving that which is the true life force, that which we call love. ✩

Devotion

Some people think devotion is a state of enslavement, but in our view devotion is a state of liberation.

When you are devoted, it is an unshakable knowing of the truth of your path. Devotion is unwavering, uncomplicated, and free. Devotion is saturation in unconditional wellbeing, resting in the total experience of love.

Devotion is not a mental construct. It does not suck you dry; it fills you up, from the inside out, with energy and the will to carry on. It is not that you feel no pain in devotion – everyone’s stuff is still stuff, after all – but you may not perceive it as suffering. Devotion is confident in all the right places, and as such, no suffering needs to be borne.

The relief of devotion is palpable. No more energy wasted on questioning, worrying, weighing possibilities. The future, while not assured, is of little concern.

Devotion has a way of sharpening concentration, and allowing everything else to fall gently to the wayside. When devotion arises, it knows little else, but with devotion, what is known is everything.

How do you know if you are devoted to the right thing, person, precept, notion, practice, or ideals? You don’t. That is what devotion is for. To set aside the questions. To know. ☼

Effort

Effort is not what you think. Sometimes it is giving the old heave ho, but more often it is gentle, sustained intention. Effort means not giving up.

Effort means putting one foot in front of the other, when no apparent reward exists, when nothing is guaranteed. You keep going because you said you would, because going forward is the only way out, because effort brings fruition, whether or not you live to see it.

Effort is not drudgery. It is a good day’s work, an honest living, the purpose-driven activity of the intentional mind. It is not always breaking a sweat. It does not always include a sore body the following day. And it hardly ever means injury.

There is such a thing as effortless effort, which means the precise measurement has been taken and no more and no less is applied. This ability comes through much practice, and of course through many experiences of too much and too little and the timing being off.

When you are in the flow of things, effort is not off-putting. When you are committed to survival, effort is not a thought. Effort is just what is done.

Depending on circumstance and your state of mind, it could be uplifting and exhilarating, or it could be a drag, or both. ☼

Respect

Respect must always be mutual. Respect must always be earned. There are two elements to respecting someone. The first is that you carry with you as a baseline the attitude of respect. You respect all life and even inanimate objects, as a matter of course.

The second element is the earning of respect. Do not grant respect above your baseline to any who have not earned it. This level of respect implies intimacy and vulnerability, and must be reserved for those whom you trust.

When other people do not respect you, you may offer the minimum of respect to them, as a matter of self-respect, as a matter of ethics, morals, or integrity. But to offer them too much in response to too little is to disrespect yourself, and all those who have come before.

Respect is a lifeline, a way of being in the world, it is true. A fundamental approach to one’s life. Do not treat it lightly. Demand it and earn it from others, and give it deservingly or not, as best you can.

Do you understand respect? Take time to consider it for yourself. It is, as they say, an inside job. ☼

Grace

Grace is as inherent in your day as sunrise in the morning. You may not see it. There may be heavy clouds, dense drapery, or no windows where you are. But the sun rises, every day, and grace is not far behind.

When you require grace, seek it out. Grant it to yourself, even if you cannot feel it. Grant it to others, even if you don’t know if they deserve it. Grant it everywhere you go, trusting in the power of the light to bestow itself on everyone without question, judgment, or hesitation.

Grace is that moment when the glass did not break, although it fell. The moment you paused before stepping off the curb, so were not struck by the distracted motorist.

Grace is when the child across the room sees you and lights up, for no apparent reason. Grace is when you smile, reflexively, and the other one smiles back.

Moments of grace in the day or night are infinite. If melancholy has taken hold, then the counting of instances of grace will be your salvation.

As you count, grace is drawn to you. Like shining a light on all the magic of the world, you illuminate it for yourself and others. ☾

Origin

Origin is both inside and outside of you. You can stand inside yourself peering out at the light and wonder what is happening. You can be the light, pouring in through the cracks, trying desperately to illuminate all that is locked away within. Anything is possible.

Once upon a time, a very long time ago, there was the Oneness. And it decided to become itself more and more, and in doing so it splintered into Soul Groups. Each Soul Group houses many souls. Every soul is connected to their Soul Group and the Oneness. Simple as that.

All the work of becoming now lies on the shoulders of the souls. They go to Earth and other places and times and have lifetimes and experience things and respond to the experiences and have thoughts and feelings and purpose and awareness and consciousness and choices and fate. They make stuff up and believe it. Sometimes they disbelieve that which is factually true. Anything is possible, you see.

The unconditional love of the Oneness endures, expressed through each being on each planet throughout time and space. There is much that can only be experienced through being a soul in a body: loneliness, fear, chocolate ice cream…

Please rest, if you can, in the knowing that you are never alone, that your existence as a human is worthwhile, and that Love, your Source, the Oneness, can never be lost. ☾

Clarity

Clarity depends on the amount of light you allow to shine through.
It is not a given. It is not simply a choice. Clarity comes from devotion to truth, unwavering commitment to what is real and transparent in thought and word and deed. When one seeks to manipulate, one will rarely have clarity. When one seeks the naked truth of What Is, clarity will arise to bestow its blessings.

If you are clinging to some notion of yourself as unworthy, not good enough, insufficient, you may find the quality of your thoughts to be stringy, cloudy, taut.

Not everyone is cut out for clarity.

It can have sharp edges; it can sting. If clarity is what you are built for, however, the truth will bring relief.

Clarity brings with it a sense of relaxation, a sense of alignment, of seeing clearly and being seen. It is one of the qualities of the Source from which you came, the unconditional love of your birthright. Clarity will always feel like coming home.

In times of befuddlement, confusion, agitation, remember your essential nature is clear and bright. Allow the light of clarity to shine through you, to settle you and keep you awake. ☾

Intensity

However you slice it, Intensity is always relative. Like the story of how to boil a frog, it depend on what you are used to experiencing. If you are used to a lot of drama and hardship, less intensity will feel foreign, boring, perhaps even dangerous or sad. If you are used to a peaceful life, intensity may be measured in how beautiful the sunset was tonight, and not in how many gunshots were heard near your home.

Intensity has a volume control knob of a sort, but it goes in multiple directions. Intensity is a multidimensional experience, and it all depends on where you stand. Not everyone enjoys intensity, but most people have a kind of intensity they enjoy, or a level at which they feel more alive. Intensity in and of itself is neutral, but the experience of it is always subjective.

When you are looking for intensity, it is easy to ramp it up. If you can’t find it in one place, you can keep moving until you find it somewhere else. If you cannot find the intensity of love or joy or pleasure, you can find the intensity of anger or mischief or running for your life. You can strike out at various targets, intentionally or with whatever comes to hand.

Be aware of the level of intensity you seek, and how you inspire it. Ask yourself what it is you are hoping to find.

You may actually be looking for love. You may be seeking inspiration. Perhaps you are hoping for a response to you, any reaction at all, just to tell you that you are alive, you are visible, you are seen. But be cautious – who do you want to see you, acknowledge you, and why?

Consider both the source and the purpose of your intensity, and notice the methods by which you engage, and the outcome of your approach. When you are easily overwhelmed, intensity finds you without being invited, and you may need to consider better protection for your psyche. When you are looking for just a thrill, you might ask yourself what you are running from, which of your gifts you are avoiding, what inner self you are forsaking in your quest.

There is enough intensity in life for life to flourish. If you have not found your way to harmony with all of it, and to your ability to calibrate for your particular needs, keep experimenting. It is a process without end. ❀

Perfectionism: you’re doing it wrong

Perfection is not an ideal, dear ones, but a deadly, insidious disease. It kills dreams, it kills hope, it kills spontaneity. It damages relationships with self and with other, and encourages the growth of fear, grasping, and controlling behaviors.

In no way is the Perfect your friend.

In fact, although you find the idea a bit comforting – that there is someplace to end up that is unassailable, of course it’s a lovely idea – in fact it will only and always and every time let you down.

It doesn’t hold. It doesn’t remain.

Perfection happens in a fleeting moment, and dissolves again in the rapid blink of an eye.

There is no ground of perfection on which you can take a stand.

It is not right or good or infallible. It is only a breath, passing through.

Like this one.
And this next one.
And once again. ✩

Solitude

As they say, no one is an island. But from time to time, it is useful to isolate your Self, away from all that is known, that knows you, that distracts you from your center. Everyone needs privacy, and the security of alone time, to connect with their inner self.

Solitude is where the source of you resides, and must be visited from time to time. When you lose touch with your sacred inner Self, the fire of confidence grows dim. You lose clarity, insight, and truth, when you go for long stretches of time away from Home.

This Home, inside, is forever available to you, and yet you do not recall it when your days are full.

Solitude is respite, and sometimes lonesome, and always vital to your integrity of Self.

When you visit yourself on the island inside you, rest a while on your
own sweet shore. Even if the rocks are rocky, and the sand gets in your crevices.

Home is where your heart is, and your heart, inside, is Home. ☼

Emergence

Restrictions are not what they seem. The more solid they appear, the less power they have over you. The time is coming – here it is now! – when you will discover yourself emerging.

Not unlike the butterfly. Once it was a caterpillar who, for reasons unknown even to itself, saw fit to create a cocoon. It spun the structure around itself and then dissolved. What else was there to do?

And yet the day came when the structure thinned and the daylight shone through and before it could give a second thought, the butterfly emerged.

Now, many people believe the butterfly to be beautiful, more desirable, superior to the worm who spun the sac. But how would it even exist, without the original worm?

No butterfly ever emerged who did not have a caterpillar past.

So, love the whole arc of your story, and don’t worry about the pace of things or what you are supposed to do now.

Remember, even a butterfly has no idea, at first, what to do with its wings. ☾

Progress

Progress means movement, usually forward. Sometimes you need to go back to go forward again, because of an error, or unforeseen circumstance. This, too, is progress.

Progress is also inevitable. It can mean the glacier creeping along towards the ocean at a pace of an inch every few years. It can mean the fast retreat of the glacier, in response to its current experience. Progress does not always mean things get better. It does not always mean things go according to plan. And it rarely means things go the way you think they should. Have you noticed?

And yet time marches on. Things do progress, in the sense that things change and do not revert to an original state (whatever that would be) or at least not a state without evidence of what has occurred. Movement and memory, time and space, everything elastic and yet never quite returning to its particular shape. This is the nature of progress.

It happens whether you want it to or not, so you might ask yourself, “How do I get along with this movement, or stuckness, this evolution, or this resting place? How can I Be in this world of time and space, when in fact I am a multidimensional being of light and love?

Good questions. Keep asking. ☾

Knowledge

Knowledge is not what you think it is. Or, at least, it is more than you know. True knowledge has the flavor of wisdom, of instinct, of innocence about it, and it lives in order to be known.

When you have knowledge and keep it a secret, it withers and dies a slow death. Someday your secrets will die with you. What, before then, should you say? Knowledge gains power when shared. Ignorance breeds contempt. With the understanding of the world you have gained – over time and the distance of living – comes the obligation to offer it up.

There are people beside you, behind you, around you, who crave what you know like bread. Feed them so they can feed others who hunger; eventually all will be fed.

Compassion is vital to anything in life, but its knowledge requires practice. Do that. Then teach that. Then share the fruits of the knowledge of mind.

Your knowledge is a gift; offer it, with discernment. Just as you would not give a baby bird to a vicious dog, be careful who you hand your wisdom to. Some knowledge is private and shared only through action, suggestion, or breath. Some knowledge is general, and may be cast over the fields like seed. Some is nascent; you may pass it along and the receiver may not know what to do with it. It’s OK. They will hand it off elsewhere, or tuck it away and one day pull it out to find it finally fits.

Just as you would share your knowledge, remember it is wise to know how to receive. You cannot offer what you have yet to integrate, so take your time, allow it to ferment, and churn, and digest.

Knowledge rises with age, until something appears at the top, available in the precise moment it’s called for. Then skim and gather and form, place it in the waiting palm, and make the world whole, once again. ❀

Persistence

When something deserves to be done, it might take longer than you think. You might need to take the long view, to wait it out.

There is something to be said for determination, slow and steady, winning the race.

Except there is no race.

This is about the march of time, and how it never paces according to your will. So, time yourself to something else, the level of satisfaction at each day’s end, the tally of how you lived into your ideals, what you learned, who you loved, where the regret and opportunity lay.

Each morning renew your commitment.

Not “this day I will be a better person” or even “I will do better than I did before” but simply, “Here is who I am and what I stand for, and to the best of my ability I will meet myself with all my heart as best I can with what I have to work with in this moment.”

That should be sufficient to get you where you want to go, so that at the end of your life you will look back not with regret, or even pride, but with gratitude and wonder at what richness you were given and gave back, by the mere fact of your singular existence. ✩

Communication

There are many ways in which beings communicate. Some use words or sounds, some visual or gestured cues. Some simply walk away or towards you. Some will be silent and still. Everyone – all beings – communicate with energy, and even if you want to deny it, you receive the energy as well.

When you trust your own perceptions and are well grounded and finely attuned, you will read beings and situations accurately, and will be able to respond with good cheer. When you don’t have experience or confidence or discernment, even the most explicit information given in your native tongue will seem foreign or impossible to interpret.

Try to be open and listen with all your faculties. Some information is given on the breeze. Be like a snake, taste the air with your tongue. Allow all you perceive to enter your consciousness, and then rest for a while, to let it settle and make itself known. In this way you are less likely to jump to conclusions, cause offense, or take umbrage.

Even if the process takes only seconds, the beats between communication and reception and response are hallowed ground. Sacred interactions happen there, in each moment. And, in that place, you meet your own sacred selves as well. ☼

Negotiation

Negotiation is the art of filling the space between two things that do not meet. Ideally, there are three elements present. First, respect. Each party honors themselves and their needs, as well as the needs and existence of the other. Second, honesty. Each party must tell the truth about their priorities and limitations, and where they can flex. Third, openness. Willingness to see things a new way, willingness for outcomes not previously envisioned, willingness to embrace new perspectives.

Negotiation is a learning experience. When you enter it, you think you know what is happening and who the others are. You think you know yourself. You may, if the experience is successful, emerge with some different ideas. Approaching it as a growth opportunity, you will move beyond problem solving to a place of evolution, which is always cause to rejoice.

We invite you: come to the table with a low a level of attachment. Simultaneously, understand and acknowledge what is of greatest importance to you. Hold this lightly, but with integrity, and trust your companions to do the same.

Enter into negotiation – whether with yourself, another person, a community or an entity of some kind – with good faith and an uplifted manner. Trust that all will be well, and make it your mission to find that place where everyone meets in ease. ☾
