Bio: On my personal journey, I began experiencing wholeness when I felt heard. The day after I graduated from high school, I set out to get free. I spent years in therapy searching for someone to listen. Most people never listen. A poem in my first book, "Encounter With God," called 'Clothes On My Back,' depicts this aspect of my spiritual journey. Ultimately, my pilgrimage gave me the exquisite gift of deep listening. Turns out that I was the person that had to listen. What I realized is that we must learn to listen to our own souls; listening is where love begins.
First, we learn to love ourselves; then we learn to love our neighbors, then we learn to love our enemies (sometimes our neighbors are our enemies), and in the fullness of time we learn to love God. This is the evolution of consciousness and compassion. No matter where your personal journey takes you, to discover the inner path of wisdom and truth, you must dive into the depths of your heart. It takes great resolve and courage being peaceful human beings and compassionate enlightened world leaders.
A principal question I ask is, "What can I do to be a proper vessel through which love can flow into the world?" For you, your heart will direct the next perfect step on your personal journey towards wholeness and enlightenment. It's the heart that understands: your heart knows everything and when it calls you it will guide you. Listening is a huge responsibility. Deeply listening, you discover the voice that doesn't use words; silence. Silence is the infinite opportunity to expand your heart and transform.
Once we know and trust our capacity to create miracles, we will experience the effortless flow of harmony, joy, and happiness in our own lives. The World Soul is nourished by people's happiness. So, when challenging times arrive (and they will), we will have the resolve and courage to be compassionate human beings. Carol Pearson reminds us, "The job of heroes is to enlighten the world by loving it, starting with themselves. Their task is not to slay the dragon, within or without, but to affirm the deepest level of truth about it: that is, that we are all one."
Connectedness is the natural state of being.
As an alchemist for spiritual awakening, any knowledge that I may pass on is to make you thirsty: knowledge is not wisdom or truth-consciousness is. My calling is to inspire your multidimensional expansion from the inside out. You are roused to discover God for your self: living in conscious awareness you will discover your innermost being, divine self. Awareness melts fear like a snowflake held in your hand. Freedom without fear is benediction. Freedom releases you to take responsibility for your choices-it allows you to see your "choices." Of course the whole notion of choices itself is a paradox.
