THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED

On one’s journey of spiritual growth, one must often take new, unfamiliar actions, in consonance with one’s new world view. Behaving differently than one has behaved before may represent an extraordinary personal risk. The passive young man for the first time asks a girl for a date. The person who has never trusted anyone lies […] Read More

RELAXATION

Concentrate on the breathing as you would ride the in breath then ride the out breath.   Breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth.   Accept and open to the in breath. Release and let go the out breath.   You hold the breath in for a tiny moment, letting everything […] Read More

THE REAL TRAVELER

There is a distinction between the “traveler” and the “tourist”. The Real Traveler travels off the clock. Schedules shift from the routine and expected to the new and surprising. The heart opens. Differences dissolve. Friendship and discovery are the most prized commodities on the traveler’s road, and cost only the time it takes to listen, […] Read More

TO AWAKEN MENTAL FREEDOM

Sit still with a straight spine. Cover up your fidgety eyeballs with the sheets of your eyelids. Hold them still. Then loosen your mind from the consciousness of body-weight. Relax the nerve strings that are attached to the heavy muscles and bones of your body. Forget the consciousness of carrying a heavy bundle of bones […] Read More

MEDITATE ON GOD’S LIGHT

Close your eyes. Forget the darkness around you and watch the bright red color within your eyelids. Look intently into that violet-red color. Meditate on it, and imagine it is becoming bigger and bigger. Behold around you a dimly shining sea of violet light. You are a wave of light, a ripple of peace floating […] Read More

MEDITATION

Make yourself comfortable, sitting upright, with a straight spine. With your eyes closed, look at the point midway between the eyebrows on your forehead. Inhale slowly, counting to eight. Hold the breath for the same eight counts while concentrating your attention at the point between the eyebrows. Now exhale slowly to the same count of […] Read More

JOY

The idea is JOY. When was the last time you felt real joy–that down-to-your-toes tingle of pure delight? Bigger than contentment, more intense than happiness, it’s a feeling so vast it almost overwhelms you. And however fleeting, joy is the ultimate expression of gratitude and appreciation. It’s what fills you up and fills you out, […] Read More

I DIDN’T SPEAK UP

“In Germany, the Nazis first came for the Communists… and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews… and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists… and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they […] Read More

I CAN!

We can lift ourselves out of ignorance. We can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free. We can fly! Each of us is in truth an idea – an unlimited idea of freedom. Everything that limits us we have to put aside. The most important thing in living […] Read More
