The Perfect Mate

How many great relationships have to crash and burn before people realize that the purpose of a life-long partner is not to stay in warm and fuzzy mode all the time? The purpose of Life is to teach us. That being the case wouldn’t it make sense that the way the Universe would show us Love is to send us someone who can teach us lessons at close range that no one else is able to? Life is a set of cycles within cycles. If we weren’t challenged we would be bored, lazy and complacent. The initial stage of a cycle comes with enthusiasm. We fuel any new endeavor with emotion to move it into a perpetual stage of motion. This is the honeymoon stage. The Universe doesn’t give you anything that you can’t handle. Unless a person is putting you in danger with abuse, the frustration you may be experiencing may be your own stubbornness and it is likely that you attribute it to the other person. A partnership is a two-way street meant to break you free of your own resistance. Our own issues are blind spots on our spiritual journey. Who else is going to be able […]

True Intelligence

The mind is valued as the highest form of awareness to some. But there is confusion about what intelligence is. Some people are able to remember many intricate thoughts and apply them in the correct social setting. This is really only a sophisticated form of mimicry. Our minds are bombarded by thoughts all the time. We swim in a sea of thought. If we were able to consciously remember everything we heard we would realize that everything that comes out of our mouth is just us repeating something that we heard from another source. Public opinion is merely a force with an agenda repeating what it wants you to believe. At some point you will believe it as truth.  This is the ongoing battle of wills that goes on with the individual being the pawn. True intelligence challenges every thought that comes into the psyche. It challenges every thought’s origin and the motivation behind it. True intelligence holds every thought up against the back drop of its own experience. Above all, it trusts its inner awareness (gut feeling) to gauge whether something is true. True intelligence knows that each person’s truth is unique. True intelligence succumbs in humility to the […]

Dealing with These “Trying Times”

There has never been a time in history when it was not a trying time. It is an aspect of life. The struggle for balance demands that we are always met with adversity. It is what hones us as Spiritual Beings. If someone were to be in space and live without gravity, their muscles would be so atrophied when they returned to earth that they wouldn’t be able to lift their head off the ground. This puts into perspective how adversity strengthens us. It takes an act of will to proceed in the face of the streams of negativity that bombard the average individual. We have to choose to be more than average. One way to empower ourselves is to strengthen the spirit by swimming upstream against the negative currents. An even better choice is to simply let them pass by. This exercises the spirit in a different way by not engaging in them. Turn off the news. The human processing system was not designed to continually filter death and disaster around the globe. Refuse to listen to gossip. Shut it down or walk away. Forego challenging others opinions and remove yourself from combative debates. It is an exercise in […]

Soul’s Perspective

I heard a teenager talking to his mother and asking her why it seemed sometimes he was looking down on people’s heads as if he was above them.  It made me remember when I started to recognize that perspective in myself. I wanted to address that question for any who may have experienced a similar thing. The soul perspective of a person is not necessarily locked in the body. It is more normal for the soul awareness to be a few inches above the body and a little bit behind it. It is the vantage point where it can be more aware of information coming at it and process it more readily. This is why some people are very creative; they are able to collect insights from outside of the box of the physical form. It isn’t until we are older and put so much attention on opinions, problems and health that we trap ourselves into staying locked in the physical body. The remedy is to daydream and to do visualization techniques to keep ourselves and our minds free and fluid. Also, doing things we love keeps our perspective more fluid. A baby’s soft spot correlates with the crown chakra and […]
