Who is Guru?
A pundit who makes predictions and performs poojas?
A teacher who gives knowledge to disciples?
A planet called jupiter?

A guru is the true teacher, the higher self. Its that part of us which is timeless wisdom. 
When we are ready and willing for spiritual illumination, the guru appears in a form we can relate to. A teacher, a friend, a close companion, a dream, a message, an animal, a book or simply silence. The guru teaches. But only we can learn. The guru cannot do that for us.
No matter how many gurus you have, you may not really learn unless you ALLOW the learning to happen.
This is not bookish knowledge we are talking of.
This requires application of wisdom in life and after.
This means letting go of past conditioning.
This requires focus and practice.
This means you must listen and stop talking…to others, to yourself, and listen to SILENCE.
This requires opening up to your infinite potential.
This requires dedicating yourself to finding your purpose and then to staying true to the same.
This requires character, values, principles.
This requires giving yourself to the higher self without holding on to attachments.
This is being selfless.
This requires you to serve the higher self alone.
This is surrender and receptivity.
This is liberation.
Blessed full moon.

Some people discovered what they thought was meditation…being quiet, passive, closed, sleepy or dull
They spent hours, days and years in this depressing state …imagining it to be the real thing
Escaping from the daily challenges of life, from life itself…wanting to be free
Some others found spirituality to be an excuse for careless, irresponsible or mindless behavior, even unethical in the extreme, Or an excuse to falsely justify negativity as a necessary part of balance and acceptance
They couldn’t be further from the truth
All the above is dullness, ignorance, negative energy or tamas
Spirituality is bright, aware, positive vibration
Its neither about mindlessness or losing your mind
Its about guiding your mind with something higher or ‘no mind’ which helps in being incharge of your mind, rising above it and not letting your mind be your block
Its about having no negative, stuck-up energies any more
Being free and flowing in a positive direction
Guided by the truth, love, universal good or divine light
Truly liberated, free of falsehood
When it becomes impossible for you to harm anyone or yourself
When you can no longer be corrupted or misled
When you are not passive, lethargic, inert or powerless anymore
When you use your power to create good, to destroy ignorance or evil
And to maintain balance and peace, both inner and outer
To utilise your time on earth purposefully
Being of some good use to yourself and the universe
That is sattvic life or spiritual living
Now that is what I call Magick!

So many people speak of being spiritual these days.
Many like being called spiritual, not religious…(as if religion were a four letter word that has done no good…but Gawd, wasn’t this is the way it was experienced until the new age of Wicca, a spiritual scientific religion…but that’s besides the point)

The point is…what is being spiritual all about?
Is it about saffron robes, hooded capes, turbans, hats and other fancy dress?
Is it about being men with long grey hair on their chins and heads and large imposing decorations on the forehead?
Is it about sitting in tight postures and closed eyes for an hour or two?
Is it about chanting in sanskrit, greek or latin, especially in the middle of perfectly ordinary conversations?
(All of which I admit will make quite an instant impression in public and may even get a few to come over and touch your feet…and secretly many of our holy men owe their sudden and humungous popularity more to this drama and less to their teachings)

Now what is the meaning of being spiritual (and not just showing it)?

Firstly the word ‘spiritual’ is composed of spirit, which means it has to do something with our inner self. But in that case we all have this spirit within…right. Quite right, however not everyone was so far equally bothered about the spirit within us all…which largely differentiates being spiritual from being purely material in our awareness and behaviour.

We are born when spirit takes material or physical form through us and our surroundings. Hence from ever since we are born we are taught in our schools, colleges and nurseries, very vaguely, about how to conduct ourselves in the material world (even if focused mainly on theory than practice). Its another thing that we also learn through people and experiences over and above our school curricula, a whole lot of things I would rather put very ironically in the category of how NOT to conduct our life in the material world. But yes most of us are somewhat aware of our material body and surroundings, even if we are not quite adept at handling them very well.

But the fact that we are made of spirit in essence was revealed rather late to most people if revealed at all. And even if this were revealed, the first (or even second or third or fourth) reaction to this was…why should it matter? Yes spirit is not matter, but that doesnt mean that it doesnt matter. The interelationship of spirit and matter is of importance here.

Now Spirit (and I am not talking of our personal spirits or lost spirits but of Spirit) or Goddess or God if you prefer,  has created our matter or material life as quite beautiful and positive. It is through non awareness and mis-understanding of Spirit that we have abused, spoilt or eroded our material world. By getting in touch with the Spirit we can once again restore a loving balance and harmony in our lives and surroundings (and also heal our own little lost spirits or souls which expand and feel complete on integration with the Spirit).

Learn how to get in touch with the Spirit (even if you call it by another name such as Source, Universe, Goddess, God) through the right ways of meditation. And …also equally importantly, learn how to bring the beauty and wisdom of the Spirit into your daily existence by way of energy healing spells that channel the Spirit energy into the material world in accordance with the motto of As Above, So Below, or as Inside so Outside, or as With In so With Out.

Deep inside, another world
Where there is only You
Far away, your darkness hides
The brightness of the truth
Go beyond the rainbow light
Way further from the stars
Deep inside, another world
So near and yet so far

Sail right through the stormy seas
Of anger, pain, despair
Find the treasure island where
All is love, true and fair
Find your peace and happiness
Find your inner self
Deep inside, another world
Don’t hide it from yourself

Im grateful for the life I live
For everything is but a gift
The dark of night, the light of day
I would have it no other way
The ups and downs, the lows and highs
The way things change, the way time flies
The lessons and the messages
In each one of the passages
In the book that stays alive
As the journey we call life
Its like a deck of playing cards
That comes together after falling apart
Like a jigsaw piece that fits inside
This picture can be seen in light
A light that shines from deep within
So I played the game to lose and win
I lost my blocks and inhibitions
To all my dreams and inner visions
I gained the truth of who I am
Unlimited by word or name
Infinite worlds, lives and dimensions
I manifest all my creations
All versions of reality
I am every possibility
I succeeded for I failed
I learned to heal because I ailed
Created problems so I could solve
I crystallised and then dissolved
I forgot and then remembered
Every bit that was dismembered
I collected and recollected
All the light that was reflected
To find the path back to the source
The inner light, the greatest force
And so I thank the One, I thank the Self
The Goddess who helps but herself
So grateful to the Self I stay
For the present of today
Life is a gift we give ourself
Know thyself and love thyself

Is our body a prison for our soul who craves for freedom and liberation?

Is the mind a hindrance to spirituality of ‘no-mind’ consciousness?

Should we let go of our physical selves to attain spiritual growth?

Is our physical existence on the planet a burden for the earth to bear?

Is sexuality something we should reject to attain spiritual growth?

Is vegetarian diet more spiritually positive or ‘sattvik’ than a non veg diet?

Are we guilty of harming someone if we consume other organisms for physical sustenance?

Moral dilemmas of body versus spirit and the physical versus spiritual have been commonly experienced by many of us at some point of our life. Religions and spiritual traditions often preach specific ways of living all different from each other. While it is good to respect every religion and their unique belief systems, it is even better to look within and find what is right for us at any point of time on our spiritual journey.

Many of you might have learnt that physical body is like a cage and we are here to attain freedom or liberation from physical existence, reincarnation and karmic cycles of life and death. Life is all about suffering according to those who believe in somehow escaping this physical world for a better ‘spiritual’ reality. In truth we need to be happy to be alive, there are plenty of things to be grateful for and to enjoy in our physical existence and it is perfectly alright to take incarnation. We are all seeing, breathing, experiencing on behalf of the divine self. Every experience of life is dedicated to the divine self which is our real truth. The divine wishes to have a physical experience through us and therefore our physical life is as much divine as our spiritual existence and as much worthy of celebration provided we are aware that every physical person or thing is all an aspect of our divine self being manifest on earth.

We are spirits who have taken a physical form. Our spiritual body has condensed into a physical form through the power of our thoughts, emotions and actions all collectively being our karma. Through positive thoughts, emotions and behaviors we create a positive physical experience for ourselves. There is absolutely no need to fear physical experience or try to escape it. The purpose of spiritual growth is to manifest our divine perfection on this earth. It’s a magical truth – As Above So Below! It is tempting to escape physical life and dissolve into a spiritual vacuum of ‘liberation’, it is more meaningful however, to project from our divine spiritual state into the worldly plane to heal, improve and perfect our reality until we mirror our divine perfection into our outer world. No matter how perfect and wonderful our inner truth is, it stays neglected just keep it within ourselves and do not allow it to seep into the outer world and create beauty, love and happiness all around. So if you are closing your eyes to meditate please do open them and radiate the power and peace around yourself as well.  That indeed is the way of the wise witch/ wizard.

Meditation is all about going within our-self, from outer to inner reality, from mind to ‘no mind’ state. For a witch or wizard the mind is not something you wish to shut down and leave for a higher ‘no mind’ experience for good. The no mind state of meditation helps you be aware and detached so that you can experience your true self. You can then once again travel into the mental plane so as to create and manifest the universe with the power of your mind and thoughts. The spirit within will give energy to your thoughts, your will, your emotions and your behaviors so that you live a truly spiritual life while remaining in physical form.

In the first stage of your spiritual evolution you will go within, learn the inner truth, meditate and witness your inner divine self. This part of your spiritual journey entails that you detach from the outer physical experiences, mental thoughts, emotions, feelings or desires so that you can be truly still. Asceticism or monkhood with various austerities and self discipline is preferable for this part of your journey. Without this you will continue to be engaged with the outer world and will find no time to go within. You must in this first stage of your spiritual journey be prepared to be ‘the hermit’. You are learning about your own inner self that was neglected during all the centuries of materialism. You are getting enlightened. This is the Meditative part of your journey when you go from outside to inside.

The second stage of your spiritual journey begins after you attain this unity with your inner divine self. From here on you will think divine thoughts, feel divine emotions, your will be one with the divine  will, you are a living incarnate divine being teaching, sharing and enlightening others and at the same time healing, creating and manifesting divinity on earth. This is the Magickal part when you go from inside to outside.

As With-in so With-out… As Above so Below!

Your physical existence is no longer a burden for earth or your-self.

You can be not only aware but also alive fully as a divine being while remaining in physical form on earth, living, breathing and creating the divine will in every moment.

Every experience you have then has a divine meaning to it. You will find meaning in every small flutter of a wing, tweeting of a bird, rustle of a leaf – which is the essence of divination. Messages are found in everything around, not just in the stars, cards or teacups.

Your words are all powerful tools of manifestation, so are your thoughts, emotions and desires. You will choose them all wisely. You are no longer a passive experience gatherer but an active divine creator. You are a healer – your mind directly affects your physical body and all your situations. You can do magick and spells with every breath, every thought, every word and every object.

Your sexuality is nothing to fear. No longer does it take you away from your spiritual path, because you are now allowing your spirit to act and interact with the universe, not just going within but also experiencing the universe as a divine manifestation of the spirit within. As your sexuality is divine you are much more responsible with your sexual self and less interested in polygamous or meaningless relationships and prefer to have a healthy and committed monogamous romance with someone who is compatible energetically. Homosexual or heterosexual, transsexual or transgender, in any way you express your sexuality there is no sin as long as you Harm None including yourself. You may also choose to have one or two healthy off-springs so that you can provide them due attention and love, including adopted children who are treated at par with your biological children. You will love to include animals, plants and crystals in your family and treat them with as much love as your other family members.  

You may no longer feel guilty of consuming food as long as you are aware of the sacredness in every object you are consuming. You will see and sense the life force flowing through everything. You soon realize that everything you consume is meaningful and is affecting you and your life. Just like you add ingredients and herbs to your spell for specific effects, your foods also create a constant change, known or unknown to you. While some induce consciousness, some attract abundance and health, others induce lethargy, dullness and harmful addictions. To love yourself in totality and to create health and beauty is a noble and positive purpose fulfilled by what we eat among all other things we do.

There is absolutely no need to feel very guilty if you are non-vegetarian for there are plenty of animals who are purely non-vegetarian such as cats, big or small and it is absolutely a part of nature’s plan to have this type of a healthy balance between herbivores and carnivores. As regards ‘harm’, both plants and animals have feelings and sensations and if killing an animal is an act of harm so is killing or mutilating a plant. However the meaning of harm is better understood with the idea of ‘intention’. As long as your intention was not to cause harm to the plant or animal that you were consuming it is not really a harmful act as far as karma is concerned.

Eating is less about taste and more about whether the food is healthy or unhealthy. To be really healthy food must be cooked as little as possible or preferably eaten raw. Naturally ripe fruits are the best choice while non-vegetarian items being less healthy and difficult to consume as raw could come last on your list. After all most of us as modern humans no longer have those sharp canine teeth or wild hunting instincts as some other creatures of nature do.

Perhaps consuming of ripe fruits is the best of all food habits compared with having leaves, stems, roots or animal meats. Plants give us the fruits naturally as they fall when ripe and this includes many vegetables which are technically fruits. As we consume the ripened pulp we can scatter the seeds or plant them into earth thereby helping propagate the plant. In case your land is not as fertile or wintry and consuming of only fruits and fruity vegetables is not quite easy for everyone, other herbs, plants and animal meats would be the alternative as long as they are fresh and grown, treated and cooked in a healthy manner.

However if you regularly meditate you might find that sattvik foods appeal to you – and you will understand the meaning of sattvik as healthy foods which are natural, pure and fresh organic food items consumed with awareness of their meaning and impact. Adding of too much salts, sugars, flavors, spices is rather unnecessary in a sattvik diet as you will begin to enjoy the original and natural flavors. Spiritual beings are much more sensitive and feel taste much more strongly than those who are engrossed in material existence. The less you think and the more you spend time in inner silence, the more satisfied you will be with your natural and raw fruity diet. You will enjoy raw and fresh food which is coarse or whole and not finely chopped, ground, juiced or mashed. You may add mild salt or sugar and healthy herbs such as sage and rosemary in your food which could be lightly steamed or saute at the most so that the vitamins and minerals in them are not lost due to boiling or cooking. Plenty of plain water will replace your needs for alcohol, caffeine or carbonated beverages.

Life is your ritual. Food is your offering. Your body your temple….You are a Divine God(dess).

Live consciously.

Blessed Be

DAILY PRACTICE FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS
 

Daily meditation is a great way to clear the mind and also to get positive energy flowing inside us.

 
“Just for today – do not worry.” This is the first Reiki Principle (Reiki is a simple system of energy work that can be learnt by any beginner). 
 
Stress and strain is harmful to both mind and body. At the same time it can block our manifestation. So try not to get worried or stressed up. Do not use negative words and do not think negative and harmful thoughts. Always be in happy state.If people are being negative – do not let them affect you. If some disturbance or stress is around – just do not absorb it. Take positive steps instead.
 
Remind yourself daily that you are feeling good. DO NOT SAY negative things in present tense such as – I am worried, I am feeling bad, I don’t have this or that, This person or that person is harming me…..etc etc. 
 
Put them all behind you in past. You WERE feeling like this and facing negativity but NOW it is all changing. You are changing. So everything will follow.
 
You can Transform all Tensions into Intentions.
You will see that all goals and targets will be achieved with the power of inner self.
 
Just relax and make crystal clear intentions
Step 1: Imagine you are in a bubble or cocoon of white light from all around. It will protect you.
 
Step 2: With eyes closed preferably (but can be done with eyes open also with practice) – Breathe in deeply and breathe out (try breathing in through the nose and breathing out via the mouth) in a relaxed and natural way without straining or thinking. Repeat several times trying to keep mind free of thoughts. Do this for a few minutes any time of the day.

 
Step 3: After you open eyes say positive affirmations (positive and clear statements) such as the following as many times a day as you can:
- I am now relaxed and positive
- All my targets and goals are achieved effortlessly
- It is easy for me to manifest success
- Today is a great day and wonderful achievements are mine
- I am grateful for all the positive energy in my life
- Everyone and everything is now positive and bright
- I am happy, healthy and I feel great today
So be it!
 
Ending sentences with Sobeit makes it come alive.
 
THIS ABOVE TECHNIQUE REALLY WORKS….. ALWAYS!
Therefore: Remember to wish for only positive things that Harm None as it is a simple law of nature that what we give is what we get in return. No-one is above this law. Nature is the universe, the god, the goddess. Let us be in balance with nature and its laws. 
 
Always give and receive goodness.
 
Blessed Be!

Many people feel the need to learn meditation at some point of time.

For this they go to ‘gurus’ and try to follow various techniques and styles of indian yoga with breathing or kundalini or some asanas …or western guided meditations …or tibetan chanting…or Reiki work… to name a few.

In my opinion most of these people end up practicing various techniques of energy work that are very much on the surface level, but they have no idea what is meditation.

I have seen people who have spent years in certain gurus ashrams but still have NO idea how to meditate.

I have also gained training from several teachers of meditation, most just scratched the surface, some went deeper – NONE were truly magickal…and most of you are left struggling – somewhere out there on the surface – to find your way inside yourself.

If you really want to meditate please do the following:

- Stop thinking first

really that’s difficult for most people but it is possible through training

You need to totally relax your mind and enter a state of thoughtlessness

You need to bring your mind under your control.

Most of us were so far controlled by our minds. We thought all the time and that too without any will power over our thoughts. We were lost in the jungle or matrix of out thoughts, feelings, desires, health problems, emotions… and we got enmeshed and trapped in them. The ‘lower self’ ruled us. This is that part of us which made us feel like a ‘victim’ or our ‘poor self’ who is going through all the troubles of life, without any power, without any magic at all – we believed that to be us. We thought God was some invisible force controlling us from outside. We thought planets may be ‘controlling’ us. We thought our tarot cards were deciding our lives. We thought miracles were created by a force outside our control. We thought intuition is something that comes from outside to some chosen Prophets only. We were unable to access or channel the higher messages of the spirit who is the creator – God/ Goddess inside us. We thought we never can and never will be like Jesus – the son of God, or Krishna, or Rama, or Muhammed, or or whatever we believe to be worthy of following. We thought we need a messiah or savior – someone outside us who will come and make everything alright for us – for the world.

We were wrong!

Really all the above thoughts were put into your head through false and wrong types of religious or spiritual conditioning, from people who were brainwashed themselves through various group hypnosis they received in their institutions.

To make matters worse, these unenlightened people taught you to fear your magickal self. To be afraid of spells, to think witches are horrible and witchraft is a dirty word. They taught you to relinquish your power and to be unwise (unlike a Witch or a Wiz who is wise). How else could they have got you to follow them. You were to be a follower… not your own leader. Because you were taught to mistrust yourself.

If you were unmagickal so far its because no-one so far taught you how to really meditate because they themselves had no idea. You did not have the right guidance at all. You were asked to think, believe and adhere to somethings as a part of your faith or spirituality.

Part of this was a belief that – because its bad to do spells or magick – you have no power over your thoughts, your emotions, your life and your situations.

Now – when you learn to stop your thoughts at will you can then learn how to create the right thoughts as per your will. This will be the beginning of the rise of your Magickal power. You will stop being a hapless victim of circumstances and start being a Wizard or Witch.

Meditation is the way to the Spirit which is the highest self – the inner self or the God/ Goddess or Consciousness. To think about inner self, God, Consciousness or reading about it, or listening to a Guru talking about it such as in a class, lecture or ‘satsang’ is not the same as really meditating on your own.

Meditation is something that can only be done if you are meditating. Someone else can only guide you to the gate and you will have to walk through it and attain freedom from your mind.

You will find that you are not just your thoughts. You are not just your body, breath, identity….You will begin to know who you are – Know Thyself – that is meditation.

You are the creator of your thoughts, the creator of your feelings, the creator of your body, health, personality, character, life…

This can be intellectually understood by you as you read this text but to really feel the power of your inner self – kindly meditate.

Here is a technique that I teach in the Global Wicca Tradition:

1. Close your eyes. If any sounds, thoughts, feelings or sensations are felt, just observe them – watch them come and go. This is called Observation state and also ‘Vipassana’. Do this for a few minutes…Hold on and go further as you are still not meditating….

2. Next, draw your focus slowly to your breath and observe just your breath. This is Breath Observation or Anapanasati. You are getting closer to meditation but not there yet…. You are still focused on the surface or outer level experience of breathing.

3. Slowly draw your attention INWARD across various levels. This way you are realizing that you not bound to the outer world. You are the observer so you are beyond it. You then observe the observer. This is called Witnessing. This happens across the following levels:-

a) Firstly this means going through and beyond Earth level of self or your physical universe. Your surroundings, your body, breath, sensations are physical in nature. You get detached these – you just observe it ….and then you Witness it by observing the observer or yourself. You begin to know who you are. You are turning from a particle to a wave form now. Your world is less and less fixed and solid and more and more mutable or changeable.

b) Then go into and beyond Water – or your emotional universe including your feelings which sometimes we wrongly believe to be helpless about. We can observe our feelings, know that we are beyond them and we can create or balance them. You no longer are a victim of your depressions or negative feelings. Now if you see yourself – you will find that you are an energy wave and this energy wave is getting to look more and more subtle and ethereal.

c) Then go into your Fire or desires – are you just a victim of desire – or are you creator of desire. You can choose what is right. You can desire the good and un-desire what is un-useful. You are no longer a victim of habit, wants, egos or needs. Your energy wave becomes finer and more controlled.

d) Then go into your Air or thoughts – you create your thoughts – they don’t just come to you. Your mind and your state of mind is in your control. You are no longer a victim of anxiety, panic, worry, stress or restlessness. You are in-charge of your thoughts. You as an energy wave are now more and more clear and pure and subtler.

e) Finally you go into your Spirit self. You find that you are no longer an energy wave. You are the source – the creator of your own energy wave. You find your inner self – the creator. You create yourself – your entire self. This way you can   influence your entire body, mind, feelings and desires to be what you want. This means you create your Astral, Karmic or Causal nature at one level. And at another level you realize how what is Inside is creating and constantly the world outside. You are your Miraculous, Magickal self – with every single possibility in this entire universe being carried within you RIGHT NOW – like a seed which is empty but has everything stored invisibly inside. You can choose the possibility or the energy wave you wish to create right now and it will happen. This is the beginning of Magick.

To learn more and practice – do join the course called Energy Healing Spells where we go very much in depth of the above and begin your magickal training.

No matter which teacher or guru you have learnt meditation, Reiki or Pranic Healing or any other technique from – we prefer you learn this full course from us (from myself or teachers who are trained in my lineage at Magick) so that you are attuned properly and oriented properly into the Global Wicca Traition’s system. Just reading the notes borrowed from someone will not help. Only proper guidance and practice qualifies you to further educate or if you wish initiate yourself into our Tradition’s system. Because its good to start at the very beginning.

A lot of us go through a lot of things in life…a spectrum of several experiences is a single person. A spectrum of several lifetimes of experiences is a soul. And we have so many forms both human and beyond human that we are taking constantly and experiencing since time immemorial. We are all here to experience each and every possibility of life.

Have you ever noticed how many different people we all are….from serial killer to saint…all kinds of people exist. You alone have been so different when you were born, when you grew up, from yesterday to right now, to how you will be and behave in future, that’s how diverse you alone are. And all the people you know or don’t yet know are different and unique on their own. And this is only the variety we see in the human realm…there are so many creatures, animals, birds, plant life, microbial among the incarnate beings. Beyond the incarnate we are so many spirit beings…various forms of energy…some with form and some without…every person, animal, rock, plant, object, place, every thought, emotion, idea has an existence of its own and is living its own life, not just on our planet but in the infinite number of planets, galaxies in this amazing universe. Can you imagine now…just how infinite our universe is? And have you ever thought of where this universe really is…where did it begin…where will it end if ever…?

The truth is that every person, animal, plant, microbe, spirit…place, thing, emotion, thought, idea, desire…just everything there is in this universe is just this one being, this one energy…taking so many forms, being so many beings…experiencing it-self. And this one being, this Uni-verse is within me…within you and within all that exists. In-fact we are all various aspects of our one-self experiencing itself…each other..each thing through this life and beyond. We are the dreamer who forgets he is dreaming and then one day wakes up in his own dream and realizes s(he) is creating a very interesting dream which is life itself. Your deepest, innermost self knows this already. Your outer mind may or may not be conscious of this always,  but this is the real and most beautiful truth about who we are. We are each other…various aspects of our true self experiencing each other in every possible way.

How does that make you feel about yourself now? How does that make you feel about your partner…your friend…your sibling…your colleague…your ex…your enemy…politics…your religion..your neighbor…your servant…the dog on the street…How do you now feel about the pages of all the books you have not yet read…all the books you have…the music on your ipod. How does it make you feel about the water your drink or the food you are eating. How about the thought you are thinking…How do you feel about your thought now? Envy, hatred, ego, greed, lust, fear, compassion, joy, bliss…what do you feel in this very moment as you read this line?

And do you realize that because of everything that has ever happened (and not in-spite of it)..all the broken hearts and angry words, all the smiles and laughter..all the sorrows and bewilderment…all that I and you have ever, felt, experienced or have not felt or experienced, for each other, everything, everyone, for the known parts of our-self, for the unknown parts of our-self…we are who we are right now. In this very moment we are all perfect, all one, all love!

Behind the facade or play of life, our true self is hidden (and sometimes revealed). Our true self is love itself. We are here to love every aspect of our-self. And this love transforms our awareness into our greater consciousness, taking us closer to our infinite nature. Yes we are love and everything is love. All hate is also love. All hurt is also love. All anger, all betrayal, all rights and wrong, all lies and deception, or successes and failures…there is only love behind it all. Our love is our only reality. We are right now together, the uni-verse, one song, one truth..in perfect peace and perfect unity, in perfect love and perfect trust, that is who we are and will always be.

Blessed Be
