Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

A Hopi Elder, Oraibi, Arizona


















 We forget that our perceptions are just our perceptions and nothing more.  We forget that there’s no such thing as “accurate” when it comes to perception.  There’s just, “What I’m experiencing is…”

And it takes an unwavering awareness that everything is perception.

I’ve been practicing this for a few days, so I’m no expert, but I can tell you that it’s been impossible to have an argument with me this week.  You can vent, but I’m just going to keep loving you until you’re done (and beyond, of course.)

Rebecca Smith, blog on Spiritual Resources Review (internet)






































Watch your thoughts,

for they become words.

Watch your words,

for they become actions.

Watch your actions,

for they become habits.

Watch your habits,

for they become character.

Watch your character,

for it becomes your destiny.

"Layers wrapped around you of other people’s stories.

Like blanket on top of blanket smothering out the truth.

Blankets of society’s expectations.

Blankets of families’ illusions.

Blankets of false identities to keep you safe and protect you from the truth of who you are.

What you don’t know is that deep within your heart is the seed of God.

The path to untangle these blankets is our greatest adventure.

It may at times be tedious and at other times painful;

But, the reward is direct access to the Divine and your birth-right of joy."

Your Spiritual Freedom by Victoria Marihart, p.4

In my lifetime, I have dealt with many people who have said:  “Ron you CAN’T do that,” but I believe that with God ALL things are possible.  

When the doctors said: “You can’t breathe without a ventilator tube.”   I did.

Schools told me I could never go to college by typing with a stick in my teeth. I did. “You can never paint with a brush in your mouth.”   I did.  “You will never get a Masters degree."  I did.

“You can’t build a camp for disabled kids, you don’t have any money.”  We did.

“You can’t write a book.”  They were right… I wrote TWO of them!

“No one will marry you in that chair.”  She did! 

Doctors said, “You will never have a baby.”     We did.

We see quite clearly that what happens to the nonhuman happens to the human. 

What happens to the outer world happens to the inner world.

If the outer world is diminished in its grandeur then the emotional, imaginative, intellectual, and spiritual life of the human is diminished or extinguished.

To think is not your real nature. Your real nature is to be.The natural free state is the ultimate goal. That is to be without thinking.

How to Have Fun Even When You’re Not Having Fun: Next time you’re not having fun – and not having fun not having fun – remind yourself that life is a comedy of situations and you’re just having an episode.

Even if you can’t recall a moment of fool-realization or haven’t committed a memorable random act of comedy doesn’t mean you aren’t qualified... to get your absurdification as a bona fide fool from the Swami... we’ll send you an attractive certificate -- including Swami’s Seal of Approval -- suitable for framing. You are pre-qualified. Anybody who would pay money for this certificate is already foolish. So you’ve earned it, you deserve it, so act now! 

Remember, any money spent on foolishness can’t be spent on anything serious, and as you already know seriousness is one of the major causes of truth decay on the planet.

had no way

with names

faint, without substance,

pure nonsense,

pure wisdom

of someone who knows nothing,

and suddenly I saw

the heavens


and open...

If you push a rose to bloom you destroy its beauty. So is it true when it comes to the flowering of all things in our life, including people, plans, and personal objectives, no matter how noble.

Looking to any person, place, possession, or power to answer our longing to be whole and free . . . is like searching the back of our bedroom closet in the hope of finding the entrance to King Solomon's mine.
