Rather than rejecting and denying portions of our own being, seeking some kind of illusory perfection, wholeness integrates the contraries.
Mystics and visionaries have engaged this spiritual depth of the interior universe for millennia and through it, slowly felt their way Home.
It’s been a revelation of waking up to the latent ‘power within’ and how our lives are now essential to create a new acceptance for the ‘other’ in us all.
Where’s the wholeness which embraces brokenness as an integral part of life? Where’s our compassion for the the poor, sick, hungry and least of our fellow sojourners?
I again began to listen to the whispers of my heart which led me into places I never imagined and taught me lessons I didn’t know I needed to learn.
Each time we failed each other I had to stop, drop my agendas, calm and center within, then patiently continue the friendly game.
Practice Self Remembering. Become more and more aware of who you Truly are. Transcend, include and embrace all of it.
This resonance and feeling of wholeness became an awareness I realized was always here and available to everyone.
This is the work of changing the world by changing ourselves. It’s owning our imperfections so they may be gifts of healing and wholeness.
I’m sensing that as we give more attention to these experiences, we will come to know, understand and cultivate them; thus awakening to the soulful serenity in all Life.
Understanding is an exploration into the mystery of the known and unknown that seeks ever greater comprehension, significance and inference.

The soulful art of forgiveness engages a power larger than ourselves that’s also within ourselves.
Vuulnerability, creativity and change – it’s the mystery of Life and the interconnected nature of every thought, word and action.
To move beyond our beliefs is to wake up to who we are and who we’re not. It’s getting in touch with the unconscious programs that cause fear, anger, alienation and disconnection.
When the soul directs creativity, there are no rules, no shoulds, musts and have tos.
Compassion is the definitive agent in our consciousness that dissolves the separation, heals the divisions and awakens the participation needed to realign us all.
When we choose to transform our transitions, we change the changeable, accept the unchangeable and let go of the unacceptable.
