Geography may be the only thing that sets us apart from each other. Though, even that is challenged when we zoom out from our tiny universal existence in the great expanse of infinite space.
But here on earth, we overly complicate things by obsessively categorizing every thing in its own separate conceptual container. We make harsh distinctions like complexion, religion, economic strata and think that these things disconnect us. Unfortunately, these degrees of separation are blatantly accepted in societies around the world.
Why is it so easy for us to emphasize the seams between our selves instead of focusing on the fact that we are all woven into the same human fabric?

In the still morning, potential for the day breaks. Seize the opportunity to make a manse with the miracle that is morning. Feel the true phenomenon of turning away from ephemeral night, and into the sun star’s light–bask in it. Realize that morning is an earthly endowment–a rare occurrence in the vastness of cold, dark space. Morning is a gift to our place, our home, in the cosmos. (more…)
We all make promises to ourselves. In doing so, we make promises to our G.O.D. (what author Julia Cameron calls Good Orderly Direction). This is so because our life is only made possible from of the light and love from the sun, the moon and the stars–all of which, are also made from the order and direction of The One.
Think of each breath as a promise to ourselves, and to our G.O.D., to fully live. If you held your breath, you would be breaking each promise. (more…)

Love and light, are truly the only things that last forever. We are born from love, will live to meet the many faces of love, and when we die, we will return back into the folds of love from which we came. It is perennial as the green grass that follows the light of the sun. Though, once the darker seasons of doubt are upon us, the seemingly eternal sunshine shifts to shadier times, and we become engulfed in the materials that comfort us through our cloudy, self-made confusion.
Looking with your mind’s eye is only way we can see through this fog. It is an ongoing process to clarify the truth about our true eternal existence of pure love and light. For the physical world we live in only affords so many insights into our clear soul. Use patience, persistence and wisdom as an umbrella against the dark and foggy days. The storms of negativity, materialism, and fear will pass, and clarity will always come with the breaking of a new dawn on life’s horizon.
To the great mother, father, sister, brother, child spirit within
I honor this day, the opportunity to live, laugh, learn, and love
I honor the blessing of a one world family with whom I have you to share and find universal truth
I honor the sun, the moon, the stars
I honor air, earth, water, fire, and ether from which we are all made
May I bring peace and harmony to all living and non-living things in this world and in others
I honor the space inside that is the same in all other beings
I honor the space inside that is of love, light, peace, and of truth
I honor the space inside in which the whole universe dwells
When I am in that space, and all others are in that space
We are a oneness
