She said, “It’s time to leave.”

And I said, “Sure.”

She said, “Turn here.”

And I said, “Sure.”

She said, “Now drive.”

And I said, “Sure.”

And I came across a Poet and he said, “I was just heading out for a walk. Would you care to walk with me?”

And I said, “Sure.” … Read more…

One of the greatest benefits of spiritual awakening is that life consistently “lines up.”

Read up on practically any spiritually enlightened person and somewhere in their narrative they will say something similar—that things just work out for them.

This happens so often in my life—I am so lucky—that I am literally surprised when things don’t work out. … Read more…

I’m always amazed how my life consistently “lines up.” How She—the Divine—manipulates my world so as to teach me, or others, something new. I didn’t understand the message of the Kidney Stone before.

But now I do.

From the book, written this morning just after I woke up… … Read more…

I placed two DVDs I had bought last night on an outdoor table where someone would find them. I had burned them to my computer and didn’t need them anymore. Then I walked next door to get some coffee.

As soon as I stepped up to the counter, the barista gave me a free breakfast sandwich because she’d made an extra one by mistake.

Sometimes it works that way: Do a good deed. Get a good deed. Usually not that fast though. It felt conscious. It felt grateful. Like I’d given Her a gift and She’d given me one right back. … Read more…

I’m always amazed when I see the hand of TaoGod working behind the scenes.

A major quality of the I AM Aspect is to view life like a dream. To see how inconsequential events ultimately are. To recognize the fleetingness of them. To deeply understand that nothing, nothing, can ultimately affect you. … Read more…

For the Divine to see Herself, She requires separation. She requires you. Like a finger pushed below the surface of an aquarium, you are a finger of the Divine pushed into this manifest world. For you to survive so that She can see Herself, you need desires. Without desires, you would die. The Self Aspect—your essential me-vehicle—is largely about how you handle these desires. From the book, from earlier today… … Read more…

With nowhere to be, I passed straight through John Day and figured I’d continue onto Idaho. 20 miles later, while deep in a national forest looking for a place to camp, I got a flat.

My Fix-a-Flat didn’t fix the flat so I resorted to changing it the old fashioned way. Not a big deal. I’ve changed a million flats, but this was my first experience with Serenity and the whole winched spare tire under the truck thing—that was the hardest part, getting the spare de-winched. I think I’ll pick up one of those tire-hole-plugger kits next time I remember.

I slept on the mountain. It was cool and comfortable and pleasant. … Read more…

Ha! The title sounds like a spy thriller. Unfortunately, I forgot a key group of siddhis in my last post: Energy work and transference. Kundalini, Reiki, Chakras, etc.

I am 95% certain that there is something to these. The reason my faith in them is so high—given my attraction toward the rational—is that I’ve had some personal experiences that simply aren’t easily written off. … Read more…
