What is a Divinely-Oriented Life?

What is a Divinely-Oriented Life?

What is a Divinely-oriented life? It is not what you think. I mean that quite literally. Orientation to the Source of us All is not something the human mind can accomplish.

The tibetan sand painting of the kalachakra is an example of divine orientation. Our minds will instantly try to, and want to know if, they need to emulate this structure. This is why these structures are taught! They distract the mind and seduce it into becoming an ally.

Living A Directed vs. A Dictated Life ~

Living A Directed vs. A Dictated Life ~

Expanding on last week’s topic of Exploring Identity, let’s look at the differences between a dictated life and a directed one.

A dictated life is the result of conscious or unconscious compliance with our conditioning and the ego’s demands.

A directed life, one that is directed by Essence, true consciousness, authenticity, or, in the case of those who want to be awake, Source, is different. Authentic immersion in the Infinite directs a life. Source will never, and I use that word consciously, never dictate.

Exploring Identity ~

Exploring Identity ~

Skills, talents, abilities, wisdom gained… These are the things we fear to lose when we dissolve Identity. This fear keeps us stuck in ego.

Identity is an archetypal blueprint that sets limits within which we live our lives. Here is how it works.

The Eye of the Storm ~

The Eye of the Storm ~

Hurricanes form over water. Warm air flowing over warm, tropical or sub-tropical waters can absorb enough moisture to form dense rain clouds. When enough moisture is collected over enough heat, the air involved can begin to swirl. This swirling motion turns a storm into what is called a cyclone.

What turns a cyclone into a hurricane? Velocity. In other words, what turns a storm into something potentially dangerous is acceleration.

Weathering the emotional nature of a world in transition can be a bit like weathering a storm.

Expanding Inward ~

Expanding Inward ~

Supernovae can briefly outshine entire galaxies and radiate more energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime. They're also the primary source of heavy elements in the universe. Their example is that the brightest light creates the heaviest particles of density. Duality-r-us.

What if a supernova turned inward? What then? What if the implosion threw off the heavy elements and the ensuing fusion of bonded light elements created something ~ new ~? What if that is what is happening to us right now?

Navigating By Feelings

Navigating By Feelings

How does it feel? We don't know what the 'future' is going to look like. It isn't going to happen that way. The unknown is something that our minds literally cannot cope with. Unless we have worked with some kind of mindfulness or warrior training we don't have the tools to deal with the reality of a constant state of uncertainty. Funny, that, because all of life is uncertain.

A House Upon the Sand ~

A House Upon the Sand ~

Funny, I first typed 'sane' instead of sand. The wisdom of the slightly-quoted parable is that it is a foolish one who builds a house on the sand. An insane thing to do, really. Sand is all shifty and moveable and constantly morphing in place. If you've watched the daily morphings of a nearby beach you know whereof I speak.

So how do we build a life upon the sands of ... anything? The sea? Time? What constitutes a firm foundation?

Let's Talk Toxic Thinking ~

Let's Talk Toxic Thinking ~

What is a toxic thought, or thought pattern, or habit of behaviour? Anything that damps down your innate luminosity. Why is this important? It is important to distinguish what is toxic energy and what is not... not by how much we can tolerate (martyrdom) but by what feels good to us and therefore flushes out what doesn't.

Let's Talk Confusion and Trust ~

Let's Talk Confusion and Trust ~

Amidst all the chaos of these times, there is confusion. "Let's be clear about confusion," she says, grinning. Confusion is a state of mind, and sometimes feelings, that does not touch your essence. It has no effect whatsoever on your essential nature.

The Heart Healers

The Heart Healers

Once Upon a Time, in a dimension not so far from this one, there existed the Dreamtime of Wholeness. This Wholeness infiltrated and permeated everything it touched. In fact, that's what gave 'the nothing' the idea. It watched and it learned.

Full Moon, Manifestation ~ What We Leave Behind

Full Moon, Manifestation ~ What We Leave Behind

A breakthrough transition is one of emerging. It is a shedding of many things. A snake snags itself onto something or weaves itself through tight places in order for its old skin to pull away. A glacier calves off huge chunks of itself, giving them back to the sea. 

A breakthrough transit is one in which things are left behind.


New Moon, Re-Set, Go!

New Moon, Re-Set, Go!

Have things felt oddly odd and unsettled and... {insert weird disturbances here} since the Solstice?  That has been the shake-up-and-out and those were the paws before the turbo booster. Some paws had claws, some sported fins and flippers, some had mermaid tails or other strange appendages.  The question you want answering is... WTF????  And, with all of the change, why do some things still feel stuck?

The Secret Life of Angels: Chatting with my Guardian Angel ~

The Secret Life of Angels: Chatting with my Guardian Angel ~

The angels around me asked that I start to play with writing down our conversations... so here we go.

I just finished a series in my Kindle library and was scrolling through what to read next, waiting for guidance.  What usually happens is that one or two of the books sort of 'pop' with a special glow that grabs my attention.

Richard Bach's book, Life with My Guardian Angel, had been popping up the last two times I opened the library app, so this morning I clicked on it.  I do know my GA's voice and manner, so it wasn't that. As I cruised through Richard's adventure, I found that I did/do have a question.
