NEWPORT, OR—Though she hasn’t been “hit” yet with the Realization (“OMG, I’m just a bunch of thoughts!”), Michelle is definitely “tasting” Emptiness and is already running into the problem of “bringing it into everyday life.” This brings her to the point of…
WICKIUP RESERVOIR, OR—He was an old man, a veteran of a war mostly forgotten by the masses, and he approached the van with trepidation. Trepidation which arose from concern, and concern which arose from fear. And the fear—as most fears…
FRESNO, CA—With the weather expected to be a mix of rain and even snow for a couple days around Lake Shaver, I decided to head down to Fresno. With libraries, movie theaters, coffee shops, hardware stores, cheap supplies and all…
PISGAH NF, NW of MILLS RIVER, NC—It’s funny how letting go, how not trying to control, often leads to surprising (and pleasurable) results. Case in point: the photo above. I love this photo. I don’t know exactly why, but I…
SOMEWHERE OUTSIDE SOCORRO, NM—By a synchronistic coincidence, I received an email on the same day as the email from yesterday’s post. Synchronistic because while yesterday’s was about distancing yourself from, well, yourself, this one was about feeling too distant from…
Since this fits so well with my last post about Radiance, here’s something I shared with Michelle (my “student”), who, in surrendering to the Light, is regularly experiencing the wonders of the Radiant level. From my journal: Date: February 3, 2013…
CABALLO LAKE SP, NM—I’ve received a lot of emails since getting stuck in the sand the other day, asking if there was some meaningful connection—a connection to my life, to the trials of the millions affected by Hurricane Sandy (see “Transpersonal Emotions”), or to the good-ol’ “Mercury in retrograde” astrological omen.
My answer below the break (huh?).
Eagle Nest SP, NM
Everything is shown up by being exposed to the Light, and whatever is exposed to the Light itself becomes Light.
Can you surrender to Her? Can you release all resistance and open to Her? Can you allow the Light to shine through?
What are you without your thoughts?
For thousands of years, Mystics have proclaimed this simple truth:
You are nothing and the Light is Everything.
Coyote Creek SP, NM
From within or from behind,
a light shines through us upon things,
and makes us aware that we are nothing,
but the Light is all.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Religious: “God is Love.” (“I want to know Him, but He is separate from me.”)
The Radiant: “Love is God.” (“I feel Her. She moves through me.”)
“God is Love.”
“Love is God.”
Do you see the difference?
No one needs to teach you about God. No dogma is required. No reading, or research, or middle-men are necessary.
You have always known Her.
Anyone who has ever loved… knows the true nature of God.
PS: After writing this, I cracked open a fortune cookie: “When seeking the Light, ignore the reflections and go directly to the Source.”
