Homecoming – Who Am I?

  Well everyone, it has been an incredible two and a half year hiatus from writing and an immense experience of learning and practical application. In the last few years I moved from solitude in the forest to Las Vegas of all places and became a school teacher and then was in training to become a principal at an elite private school, got married, opened two yoga businesses, was recruited for a traveling teacher trainer position, assisted in opening four more yoga studios, lived in southern California and Oregon, and then left it all and finally moved to Hawaii and …

Every Passing Moment Is Another Chance To Turn It All Around

“Assume that this fleeting moment will never be exactly the same again. Embrace it fully surrendering yourself completely to its wonder and eternal potential. Every passing moment is another chance to turn it all around.“ Each moment of our lives holds within it infinite potential to lead us down one of countless miraculous paths. The magnitude of our choices is truly mind blowing, even to the point where if dwelt upon too much would render us incapable of possibly making decisions due to the sheer impact of its ripple effect, forever altering our course. Yet instead of dropping into fear …

See All ‘Failures’ as Blessings in Disguise

“See all ‘failures’ and setbacks as blessings in disguise. There is wisdom within all things, thus leading us closer to what it is we are seeking.” Another powerful reminder to keep with us throughout our journey is to faithfully, without doubt, see all setbacks, disappointments, and ‘failures’ as perfectly orchestrated lessons and guides to our goals. More important than the goal itself is what we become during the process of overcoming our obstacles, and it is through our trials that we become the person we are desiring to be. Dwelling on negativity only stagnates our growth and could only be …

The Power of Habit – A Great Creator or Destroyer

“Habit is the most prominent challenge along the path of realigning our lives with a higher destiny of true happiness. Habit is a powerful seed that can bring forth poisonous creations that continuously mislead us or it can blossom soul-nurturing fruits that guide the way to godliness.” In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna often repeats to Arjuna to beware of the endless temptations and ensnarements of destructive habits. Our habits often run deep into our subconscious and therefore have an overwhelming power over us if we’re not careful and present in the moment to catch their automatic reactive nature. If we are not …

Revealing the Light Through the Fog

“With true strength and conviction all things can be overcome so as to reveal the Light hidden behind the fog of the ego’s smoke and mirrors. With honest surrender for help comes endless support and guidance in alignment with our heart’s genuine intentions.” Once we make the honest commitment to improve and overcome our temptations of selfishness, Divine’s infinite love and guidance comes to assist us in all that we stand in need of. Just as all negative consequences and painful situations we’ve had to endure up to this point have been the result of our own choice and making, …

The Con of the Senses

“Following after the endless desires of the senses leads to an entrapment of addiction and the bondage of always needing more. Sense cravings can only be temporarily satisfied for varying lengths of time depending on the individual. Yet, inevitably attachments will always convince us we are lacking and thereby make us a slave to their needs.” It is the grandest illusion of the path of selfishness/ego that the senses (desire and attachment) can eventually be satisfied and ever-fulfilled. If I just got that career I would be complete. If I just made x amount of money I would be set. If …

There is Nothing External Imposing Consequences, it is Self-Fulfilling According to Free Will

“All are choosing their own destiny of liberated happiness or enslaved misery according to expressing their soul’s desires. There is nothing external imposing consequences, it is self-fulfilling according to free will.” There is no external power or entity for us to blame or project our circumstances on. Our entire reality is a holographic projection from within us that shifts and changes according to our own subconscious beliefs, desires, and perceptions. The world is perfect just as it is and has everything available within it for us to perceive, we are the one’s that label it otherwise and seek to find a …

We Can Perceive a World of Selfishness or Godliness, the Choice is Ours

“Some souls are attracted to goodness, abundance, and service while others by fear, scarcity, and selfishness. The attraction is self-imposed and according to each soul being what it is. All align with what they desire.” With the gift of consciousness we can perceive the universe unfolding to us as we see fit. Subsequently, some of us will choose to see scarcity and lack and thus respond with fear and selfishness while others will choose to see abundance and eternity and thus respond with service, joy, and peace. There is no right or wrong here, it is just a matter of perspective and …

We Are Apertures Through Which the Universe Becomes Conscious of Itself

“We are an aperture through which the universe becomes conscious of itself.” Through the realization that all that is experienced “external” to us is actually just a projection of what is “internal”, we can further realize that the entire universe is therefore becoming conscious of itself as we continue to reveal it through our experiences. We are explorers of the universe and discoverers of Divine Consciousness, revealing and unfolding that which can only become known through us. There is no “out there” out there, no independently existing reality separate from us, it is only through our conscious experience that we evoke the entire …

All That Is Perceived Outside Is Only A Projection From Within

“All that is perceived outside is only a projection from within.” As I begin this series of sutras for liberation, I must start with reminding us that the most important thing to always know is that all experiences are only subjective and thus purely stemming from within us. What this means is that the world we see around us, and the perceptions we have about it, are only a mirror of our inner world. In other words, we will be drawn to seeing whatever it is we currently are aligning our consciousness with and in need of seeing in order to further …

Everything is Always Working Out for My Benefit

“Everything is always working out for my benefit” As we accept this affirmation we move ourselves into a vibration of positive expectancy and unconquerable optimism. I personally love this affirmation as it has proved its benefit to me several times whenever my thoughts become overrun with negativity. The beauty of this affirmation is that the mind can’t actually reject it because technically it’s projecting to an unknown and is based on faith. The mind can reason all it wants against optimism but in the end it has to accept that it doesn’t know the future. And if the future is …

The Only Thing to Change is Our Perspective

Exploring the Possibilities If we accept that our reality is not literally created by us and therefore we are not ‘co-creators’ or somehow masters of the universe, where does that leave us? Are we bound to accept a fate of hopeless victimization and believing that some just get lucky in this world and some don’t, and we have to either fight for or let go of dreams and life passions? Do we just do what we can and accept that things just don’t work out sometimes and sometimes they do; life is ‘hard’, it takes work, you have to take for yourself, and …

Unconditional Love is Not Passive – It is Fearlessly Resolute

Something that keeps making its way back to me to truly assimilate into wisdom the past few years is the ramifications of unconditional love and how to fully understand what it would look and act like. One teaching in particular that has perpetually baffled me is Jesus’ demonstration of tipping over the tax collectors tables and casting them out of the temple. Another being Krishna’s command for the warrior Arjuna in the Bhagavad-Gita, to fight and kill his ‘enemies’ and extended family. As far as our own lives, I have often wondered when is it appropriate to stand up for ourselves, …

Call to Greatness

As an elementary teacher, I feel my current service is to inspire and ignite the passion for learning and exploration of the endless, exciting possibilities of life. Yesterday I had an unusually profound day with my students; drawing their attention to the fact that history is being made as we speak, in this very moment choices and potentials for our lives are unfolding and being written in time. As they stared at me captivated and perhaps even mind-blown at the idea that in a hundred or thousand years other people would be studying us just as we were studying those before …

Letting Go is the Real “Secret”

“We will never experience the changes we wish to see in our life until we are perfectly okay with them not changing.” With the continuing buzz of talk of the “law of attraction” and other ideologies of “creating our reality” it is important to realize the true meaning of what these teachings are implying. While desires, meditations, mantras, visualizations, and endless ambitions are wonderful and important to feeling passionate about our life, if we attach too much energy into them being “law” then we will most likely end up frustrated and disappointed. The main reason is not because these things …
