The subject of The Light and bringing in the Light has been a fascination of years for me. There, of course, are endless ways to explore this. However, I will share just two fairly recent experiences.
We often say that, it is important to learn from our past experiences and lessons learned. And while generally I still believe that, recently I find myself wondering about this. It has all come about because I find myself wanting to put everything I have ever learned, taught, believed, behind me. Not rejecting any of it. More like toys I have played with, which are now worn and shabby and no longer hold my attention or interest. Continue reading “#34 The Relevance in the Present of Past Experiences”
Yes, yes. I’m still here. My silence on this blog fails to convey how often I have thought about writing. The other day my friend Marion Z wondered why I have not been writing. That slipped some sort of gear in me and here I am. But, I hasten to add, as has happened before, that I decided to write and see if in the process I can discover the answer to my friend’s question.
One reason can be attributed to fast, unforeseen changes in my life.
The frenzy, to share what I keep learning, is gone. The motivation to blog has taken on some different shape. Not sure exactly what that means. I do know that it reflects yet another shift within me. These changes seem to keep speeding up. What is all this adding up to you might ask, as I do ask myself. Since I don’t have the answer, I decided to honor the urge to start writing this blog and see what wants to be written, if anything. Continue reading “#30 Standing in the Unknown”
The guidance of yesterday is as unexpected as the previous one; the one which led me to realize that I was not to conduct retreats as I have been for many years. With that direction being clear, I have been searching for clarity about the next cycle. In that process, I found myself floundering a bit and even touched a worry place about my security. Continue reading “#29 The Surfacing of the Refuge”
Finally, a concrete movement of enough significance to focus my energy in a clear direction. The concept of releasing, letting go of what is completed or outdated is one which has been with me for many years. It is basic in the Ageless Wisdom teachings of which I am a student. Here is an example of my most recent experience demonstrating the release of an old form. Continue reading “#28 Releasing Old Forms”
Freeing myself from the molasses like strands that hold me to outworn, outdated, habitual thinking and ways of being, is much on my mind these days. We of course realize that, knowing and doing are not the same. I value them pretty much equally. Roberto Assagioli’s (founder of Psychosynthesis} caution is relevant to remember here. Continue reading “#26 Pulling Free From The Past”
In my arrogance the other day, I felt secure in what I can do during this time of challenge on our dear little planet. Stand steady, remember that we are all beings of Light, radiate that Light and build our bonds of Love. I threw into this mix sharing objective facts which could simply be one way of balancing the bigoted vitriol being poured all around. Continue reading “#25 Life in the Midst of Chaos”
Due to the death of a family member, I have again been thinking of this experience every human being undergoes. It’s not only because I’m 80. This has been a more or less steady interest most of my life and stems from my always wondering where we come from and who we truly are. Continue reading “# 22 Some Thoughts About Dying”
There was a period of years when I kept asking myself the question, ‘what is the responsibility of the one who gets free’. I find myself thinking about that again. Plato’s allegory briefly is this. A group of prisoners have been chained for their whole life time and this is the only life they know. Continue reading “#19 Plato’s Allegory of the Cave”
