Be Here Now – Part Two

Why aren’t you happy? Why aren't you deeply content and joyful all the time? If you think you are, stick around. You wouldn’t be reading this if you were. But this isn’t  about happiness, I want to talk about indifference. Happiness is temporal, coming and going. A circumstantial shift and we’re thrown back into the abyss… Continue reading Be Here Now – Part Two

Mystical Tidbits

I have decided to tell you a little story. The memory of a very special event that took place many years ago during a difficult time in my life, entered my awareness this morning in meditation. I have not shared this story with more than two people, but this morning I felt moved to tell it to you.

It happened during my morning meditation many years ago. I had begun remembering Lakulisha and the amazing experiences I had had that caused me to think of him as a “heart magnet”, for that he is indeed: His love is literally magnetic, drawing you to him in waves of joy so intense that you stumble over your own feet (if you happen to be on them). The memory of him brought about this same feeling of being drawn to him.

Why I Meditate.. Into the Darkness

Since childhood I have been 'different' in the eyes of others. I can recall from a young age that I saw the world differently than many. It was a struggle that only gained momentum as I grew. Mine isn't a mystical story, though many of years were peppered with mystical (unbeknownst to me at the… Continue reading Why I Meditate.. Into the Darkness
