Become the sky; Inside this new love


Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Escape.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You're covered with a thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quiteness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.

whisper


Start seeing everything as God
But keep it a secret
Become like a man who is awestruck
and nourished, listening to a golden nightingale
sing in a beautiful foreign language
while God nests invisibly upon it's tongue.
Hafiz, who can you tell in this world
That when a dog runs up to you
wagging it's ecstatic tail,
you bend down and whisper in it's ear
'Beloved, I am so glad that you are happy to see me,
Beloved, I am so glad, so very glad, that you have come.'

~ Hafiz

"i am relaxing"

Wow, 2012, already you've knocked me off my feet, several times, mostly in good ways.

It's been six months tomorrow since I defended my PhD dissertation. It is finally starting to sink in.
Recently, i realized that i'd been in school since age three! And even before then, in a way, as both parents are educators! And yes, a leave of absence counts as still being in school when otherwise it's abandoning the hallowed PhD... In all honesty, this has been one of the best things I've ever done -- I learned that with support from dearly loved ones, anything is possible. And how amazing it is to have time and literally space to pursue other interests!

.. I've gotten married!!
Awesome sauce. I recommend marriage (or the equivalent lifelong commitment) to each person who does indeed reunite with their soulmate. Something clicks inside. It's a new paradigm... Especially in 2012.

And finally... work feels aligned in broader, deeper ways, and that's just my day job!
I'm finally learning to code, which feels very right just now, freeing me professionally.
I'm also being granted opportunities to work with dear friends in special ways.
Life is opening up in bright, sunny, spectacular ways. And I am ready for the sunlight.

Each day, i am supported by a higher consciousness, by my spiritual family.
Each day, i am supporting my larger community directly with all intentional actions.
(Sometimes I falter, and that is allowed -- I am human.)
Forgiveness exists. Love is the Reality we live in. Waking up is possible.
And encouraged. :)

As That Reality begins to reveal Herself, Here We Are.

Just wait for the birth

‎"You must give birth to your images. They are the future waiting to be born. Fear not the strangeness you feel. The future must enter you long before it happens. Just wait for the birth.....for the hour of new clarity." 
- Rilke

Affirmation

I am about to marry my best friend, start a company, grow into a role as trusted advisor to amazing inspired people in the contexts of education, technology, and spirituality. I work with and support my best friends and loved ones. I am strong, healthy, happy, peaceful, and actively still in the eye of the storm. I feel God's presence constantly and Trust in God's perfect guidance. I celebrate Life joyfully and am filled with gratitude, abundance, and bouyant generosity. I recognize the divine spark in the eyes and spirit of each person who crosses my path, and I love fiercely and confidently, allowing patience to blossom through the experience of struggle. I am growing into a role of motherhood, discovering depth of connection and groundspring of wisdom in the Divine Mother. I serve with grace. I engage in radical communication, holding space for the highest good to emerge as God so wills. I love with my mind and think with my heart -- Jai Guru!

I am

Freedom

Happy freedom!

Today is Passover, the day Jews celebrate freedom -- may we all be free from the enslavement of limited possibilities and ignorance of God.

Today is also Good Friday, the day many Christ-followers reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus and the salvation that followed in witness of his expansive freedom and communion with God -- may the Christ Consciousness awaken in us all, may we all find eternal peace and repose in communion with our Creator.

We are free. This life is a blessing.

So...
How shall we celebrate our freedom together tonight and in every moment?

Here's a suggestion... Let's imagine our ultimate and ideal future, and let's create it! How? Just imagine it and then allow it to naturally arise. By focusing so intently, Love becomes all we see, God's perfection becomes all we experience, the awesome beauty of This One Long Now becomes the center of our awareness always. Recognize those blessings which in each inhale are showering upon you, which in each exhale are ripening within existence. Imagine the matrix, the Matrica, the Mother of creation, shimmering with infinite possibility, awaiting our every command-desire, with the sole intention of fulfilling it, so that we may come to recognize the only desire which does not extinguish upon arrival -- the desire to be forever in the bosom of God. Allow Love to be your foundation, let Compassion be your guide. Be freeeee to just be!

Whatever you want sincerely, you will get. What you are getting now is exactly a result of what you have been wanting in the past. Now is the time, Now is the opportunity, Now is the moment to change the Gestalt. Decide to awaken into a new reality, a closer to Truth reality, the one Reality of the one Long Now. Decide to fight the good fight, to be determined to stay with Love, to be with integrity, to insist upon Beauty and Compassion, to swipe fear to the side and pursue the path of Righteousness, which is the path of Joy, the path of your own personal bliss.

We are all saturated in awesomeness. Let's wake up and smell those roses.

Meet me in Love, i'll see you here. :)
