Being Enlightened

Sedona, Arizona

Temple of the Elders

Our Spiritual Path leads us to Enlightenment. Is it true that the more understanding we have of spiritual concepts, the more Enlightened we become? Many believe that the more spiritually educated we are, the more enlightened we are. However, when we look back at the truly enlightened beings who have lived on Earth, such as Ascended Masters and other highly spiritual people, it must be noted that many of them did not become spiritual because they studied spirituality. It was something else that raised their consciousness to higher levels.

This is not to imply that studying spiritual knowledge is unhelpful. On the contrary, it is exceedingly useful in achieving our goal of Spiritual Growth. Exposing ourselves to the higher vibrations of spiritual information has a positive, uplifting effect, but study alone does not make a person enlightened. Even a clear understanding of multi-dimensionality may not. So then, what is the answer?

The Joy of Wasting Time

Chalice Garden

A Spiritual journey is one taken with no road map. We proceed fearlessly, with guidance that comes from a place to which we have not yet been. And even though we do not know what lies ahead or even sometimes how to proceed, we keep going, without even knowing why. We only know that we must.

 Yet there are times when we feel stuck, as though there is no progress. It is then that we are on a plateau, a resting place, a time for reflection, gentle growth, and re-evaluation. It is an important part of the Ascension Process. Read more ›



A Divine Life

cropped-IMG_2195.jpg

Anything that transcends our rational thought processes is difficult to define in words, especially when it is a force greater than we are. The very act of trying to conceptualize a deity, just to give ourselves comfort, is an exercise in futility, for as soon as we describe what that divine being is, we miss the mark.

Many are living under the illusion that they are separate from the Divine. They have taken the most important aspect of life and placed it into a physical form, separate from them, thereby removing themselves from the most fundamental part of their existence, and keeping it hidden beyond their reach, somewhere in the sky.  Read more ›



The Garden of Eden

Chalice Garden

There is a world where life is good, and all is well, and it is right here on Earth. It exists beyond a thin, transparent veil of conscious perception that despite its fragility, has power greater than a thick lead wall for those who live within it.

I am not speaking of a fantasy place on another planet or in a different time, it is right here and right now. We live on a wonderful, rapidly evolving planet, full of fascinating people and places, but we must lift the clouds of illusion that we have grown to accept, and learn to see life as it really is.

In an infinite and abundant universe, inhabited by enlightened, intelligent beings, on a beautiful place such as the Earth, we are not meant to suffer. We have fashioned our world and taken a few wrong turns, but the time has come for us, as luminous life forms, to get back on the journey we came here to experience. Read more ›



A Walking Meditation

Bring yourself into an even deeper, serene place..

As we continue along the Ascension Process, various forms of meditation have become part of our spiritual practice. Usually it involves setting aside a time and a place where we can become quiet and focus on the moment, often with our eyes closed, and particular attention focused on our breath. This practice has produced wonderful results in those of us who devote a portion of our day to leaving the world behind and focusing on the now. When we are in the moment we are truly alive and clearly connected to the multi-dimensional aspects of both ourselves and universal consciousness.

Traditionally, meditation has been an undertaking we do apart from daily activities such as work or recreation. Eyes close, rhythmic breathing begins and the energetic vibration rises. For centuries, in many cultures, spiritual seekers have endeavored to meditate in this manner, but the time has come to expand from practicing meditation, to living it every moment with eyes wide open. In The New Era, full attention is required. Read more ›



Surrounding Ourselves with Beauty

Thanksgiving Bouquet

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty–that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” John Keats, “Ode on a Grecian Urn”

Beauty is the expression of the Higher Self in the physical realm. It extends far beyond the obvious, visual, outward person that is presented to the world. Beauty is also part of our emotional, and energetic aspects.

When we are born, every part of us is beautiful, but as time passes, beauty is sometimes exchanged for other qualities, some of which are not so charming. In spite of these changes, the exquisite, original blueprint remains, sometimes hidden, but nevertheless the perfection that originally existed is documented for all eternity. The question is, how do we return to that perfection? Read more ›



Loving the Third Dimension

The Ascension Process is just that, an etheric journey that begins with shifting out of the Collective Consciousness into the uncharted territory of the Higher Realms. We can do this while simultaneously living a third-dimensional everyday life.It is like being in a fog and slowly watching as the fog lifts, revealing what we could not see before, but was there all along.In other words, there has always been an iPhone, we just could not see it.

As Spiritual Seekers in the Third Dimension, we are discovering what beings in other dimensions might take for granted. Read more ›
