Spirituality: The Soul's Lesson.

“Be like a lotus. Let the beauty of your heart speak.  Be grateful to the mud, water, air and the light.” ― Amit Ray

Of all the lessons our spirit comes here to learn there is one that is the Grand Poohbah of them all. I believe the discovery of that realization happens only on your spirit’s last tour of this physical experience. Understanding this single truth is the foundation that will change your life. The ignorance of it, is the root behind every struggle and challenge we endure. Once you come into knowledge of this, you will understand why everything has happened to you and how life is bliss when you follow this Truth.

Now, you’re probably wondering, why don’t I just tell you. I could, but it’s something I have discovered comes from living, growing and learning. This truth, this enlightenment, (which I know is part of a bigger message I am being asked to share with others) is not something new. As a matter of fact I grew up with this awareness all my life. But one won’t fully g…

Spirituality: Discovering Why You Are Here!

“There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.” ― William Barclay

The well-known quote: “There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why” is attributed to theologian William Barclay. It is one of those quotes that if you have actually discovered why you are here, it would make perfect sense to you. As a matter of fact to discover why you are here can be very relieving.


It is difficult for most people to accept that there is a specific purpose to our lives and that our existence is by no means happenstance. Everyone came here with a purpose, and the goal between life (or lives) and death is to figure out why. It appears most people don’t come fully into that space unless they come into some level of enlightenment. For most, life is all about “birth-living-death”, and in the middle we adopt this belief that there is a set way to live based on what we see around us. Then life wanes and…

Positivity: Choosing Love!

CHOOSING LOVE.

Parents had a son, who was diligent and hard-working. When the son grew up, his father found him a rich bride. “Dear parents, I don’t need your bride,” the son disagreed. “She’s grumpy and doesn’t know how to do anything. I fell in love with a hard-working and cheerful girl and I want to marry her.” “Who is she?” asked the parents in surprise. “Our maid. Don’t you see how nice and beautiful she is, how she works from dusk till down?”  the son answered.
Parents got mad. Their family was rich and they wanted to be even richer. They fired the maid, but the son didn’t forget the girl. Then his father told him: “If you want to marry a poor girl, you have to leave our house. I won’t give you anything.” “It’s not a problem, father. The most important thing is love.”  the son said and left. He started living with his young wife soul to soul. Soon, his mother came to visit her son. She stayed for one day and said: “My dear Son, at our home we were eating pies and here you have …

Awareness: Spirit Resonates

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

I have been experiencing spiritual writer’s block for about two weeks.  It feels like Spirit has shut me off from being able to convey all the thoughts that are flying through my mind. The main reason I have so much going on in the head? Once again, I have been sequestered by information that basically has my mind going in every direction trying to assimilate it all. 

It never fails, the teacher shows up when the student is ready for more. A spiritual awakening can feel like moving from kindergarten to graduate school in a short time, depending on how dedicated you are to learning and how open you are to something beyond your mind’s reach. I realized that because I want to know, I seem to have these opportunities for information to come my way, at times in written form. Some of the things I am reading are pretty remarkable, actual…
