Memory and Tradition on the Spiritual Quest

Memory and Tradition

This is another of my posts from earlier blogs—This one from a year and a half ago, updated for inclusion here… Honor Yesterday Without Hanging On One of the first roadblocks you encounter as you embark on a serious Spiritual Path is the accumulated mental, emotional and physical baggage of your own past. There’s some nasty stuff lurking in that baggage, and Memory is the key that unlocks most of it. In the course of even the most seemingly benign life, huge amounts of emotional detritus, mental garbage, as well as physical angst and imbalance, are packed away to sneak up…

LongTime SunShine

Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light. -Yogi Bhajan May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way on. (Traditional Song to Seal and Close your Kundalini Yoga session) Thirty Years Ago Though this is not one of my official Personal History posts, I’ll give a wee bit of background here. In spring of 1989 after having lived in a veritable Spiritual Storm for months—clearing, balancing, receiving council from Ascended Masters, and surviving one of the most traumatic periods of my life— I experienced a…

Accountability—Time, Technology, Social Media and Magic

Accountability

Living on the Cusp…Finding a Direction at the end of The Age of Reason We are All fated to live in interesting times, living up to the blessing or curse of the old, supposedly Chinese, adage that is blithely and often bandied about. Perhaps this is always the case. Whatever times we find ourselves in are likely, speaking in the language of probability, to be eventful and fraught with one sort of adventure or other— very often not of the welcome or expected variety. I think most will agree with me though, that these are turbulent times we are presently experiencing . How…

The Power of Words

The Word Was God In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Gospel of John John 1:1 Apparently, I am pursuing a theme, at least for the present. Power! The use and misuse of something which in and of itself is rather mercurial and hard to pin down.It is defined as a quality or faculty, a potential or a force. So what is it really? If indeed it is possession of control, authority, or influence over others, then its quality certainly is dependent on whatever force or capacity it is backed up by. And, whether it…

Power―The Mirror

Power The Mirror

Received from Merlin sometime in the late 1990s… I have been so very blessed on my spiritual path to have had wonderful Teachers―some of them physically incarnate and others dwellers in less material realms. Merlin has been with me since nearly the beginning. He would say even before that, that I just wasn’t aware yet. He has served as guide, teacher and friend through three tumultuous decades. Power is Love While it has been close to, if not, twenty years since I hastily transcribed this on a sheet of notebook paper, I have only shared it with one other person…

Emotional Healing—Following the Path of Heart

Path of Heart

Roads Less Traveled “For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length–and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.” ― Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge Coping with Life as an Empath… Part 2 In the late 1980s the Spiritual Path I had meandered down for several years went into overdrive. A number of obviously not random events in my life sent me careening through an Awakening that no amount of previous information or knowledge could have…
