Pilgrims of a Newer World

We have a strong desire to go home… whatever home is. Let’s call it a longing for wholeness. An ever-increasing community of souls, of which we are a part, is intentionally gaining awareness of what may have been hidden. Our return signals a new way of being that is authentic – compassionate, passionate and truthful. There will come a day when all people will see the light of Divinity within themselves, and they will be what they see, and love what they are – endlessly.

Heart communication. It’s an uncovering that approaches like the sunrise… ever increasing. To open up and let ourselves be loved is part of this conversation – to love and be loved. Just the thought of actually being loved could bring tears to our eyes, and behind those tears a flood of loneliness and grief… for separation comes with the visceral experience of judgment.

The Resurrection of Mother

We’ll begin with this statement: Mother is the creator of civilization. She says no to this and yes to that for the sake of life. She creates wellbeing, beauty and a civilized culture. This is her realm. Hers is the vital voice of the heart.

This voice, the heart’s intelligence, has been underfoot for thousands of years, and now it rises, individually, collectively, and eventually in every human being, male and female.

With that said, let’s go. Continue reading

In a Time of Balancing

“Had we not doubted love we would be in heaven right now.” Ishwar Puri

Abandonment… it happened to me. On the line was trust in my own feelings: the heart’s knowing. My heart took a hit, and now… ?

What to do about the pain? Well, some might react or retaliate, but I don’t feel any anger. Some might make an effort to dissect the situation, explain it away or psychoanalyze everybody. I used that route for years. It can soothe the ego but it can also lead to seeing oneself as ‘wrong’, a fool, or not good enough. Continue reading

So, it’s Truth Bomb Time?

In the words of the collective: “The world is going insane and we can’t do anything about it… we’re powerless and we’re trapped!” Well, we can do one thing: realize that this is not a trap as much as it is light shining on darkness. Let’s step back, look at the flow, and see if there is a way to proceed.

Readers of this blog know that I often write about a day to come when consciousness expands and the pure light of truth is received with gratitude. This gratitude will be felt when love is the response to truth, i.e. “I love truth even if it makes me really uncomfortable, even if it reveals my secrets and flaws.” At the moment, the collective reaction to truth is fear, anger, denial and desperation. We say we want truth, but we fear it because it means we will change, and we’ll have to face the unknown. It’s like a little death. Continue reading

Let’s Get Real

Today we’re going to talk about the shadow, and we’ll move toward trusting the journey. To begin, here’s a question that someone wrote in the comments section of an article about the noble effort of Native Americans to protect the Missouri River in North Dakota: “Will the American people ever do anything to stop or rectify the harm being done by ‘their’ government in their name?”

Of course the question presumes that we’re not doing anything to stop the harm and rectify things. In fact, there are millions of us on the side of Life and Balancing and Harmony and Peace. We want change and we want to do something. So we spread the word, a few of us sign petitions and make phone calls, and yet we stand in what feels like an incredibly weak position, not knowing a way to really turn the tide. Why does our position seem so powerless? Are we losing this war to the ‘deciders’ and ‘controllers’? And a big one… if we abhor conflict how do we engage in it? Continue reading

Momz Goodies: Some Thoughtful and Inspiring Music

I hope you enjoy these videos – the first song is performed by seasoned artists, lyrics by Sting, and the second is from some very skilled and beautiful children, lyrics by Michael Jackson.

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the color of the evening sun
Tomorrow’s rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay
Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime’s argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are Continue reading

The DEA and the Assassination of Common Sense

I took this quote from one of many articles I’ve been reading about the plant medicine called kratom: “A patient requiring constant medication is, from a business standpoint, preferable to people getting pain relief from a plant.”

The list of things we can’t do according to the law is getting longer and longer. In a month another will be added to the list. I’d just like to give the readers a head’s up on what’s going on in the US, within our strangely backward drug enforcement agency (DEA). Continue reading
