Is Your Purpose-On Purpose?

The Joy and Grace of Living Your Purpose

Aloha to You, Wherever You May Be,

When I recently drew the blessing card called Purpose~I read it thoughtfully and began to wonder! It said: “A master is motivated by the meaning of their life and will persevere regardless of all obstacles. A master doesn’t deviate.” I began thinking about the nature of purpose, motivation, commitment, and overcoming obstacles. In one’s life there exist different levels of purpose. In one respect, we have our physical goals and purpose~i.e. to have a satisfying career, faithful friends, a supportive living environment, a healthy body, and maybe even a decent bank account! In Hindi, the word- lokik relates to all things material, i.e. our outer world. When it comes to lokik goals,pursuits, and responsibilities, they are varied and unique depending on one’s specific interests, talents, family conditioning and upbringing, education, and other worldly factors that have influenced one’s development.

When it comes to spiritual goals and aims, the Hindi language has another word that is used exclusively when referring to one’s spiritual life or inner world. That word is “alokik”. When it comes to spirituality, or inner aspirations, a constant of almost all people if they take the time to wonder is the question – Who am I? The answer to this question must be broad enough to be independent of the changing roles one has in the course of their life as they journey from an infant to the grave. Another spiritual purpose for many is to discover their own personal connection to the Creator, the One Above, the Universe, or whatever name one gives to that All-powerful Force.

At the lovely age of “60 something”, I had gleaned from life personally fulfilling and universal answers to both of these questions. The quest for the answers intensified as I approached the age of retirement~when there was space in life away from the immediate demands of family, work, and friends to give time to the inner world. I am now in a position and place in life where I have the tools to share with others to assist them on the inner journey. Perhaps you are now becoming aware that as a result of your perception of yourself and others, as simply lokik human beings, with lokik mindsets, chances are that your spiritual or alokik nature has become buried and unaccessible under the burden and overload of impressions and imprints of “the world which has been too much with us”. This happens due to karmic relationships, poor choices, harmful situations, and traumatic events that have distracted us and /or blocked our ability to access our truth.

I offer folks different opportunities to clarify their lokik as well as alokik purpose and meaning in life. I’ve synthesized through my own ongoing journey over the last 21 years while living on the island of Kauai a process of Spiritual Empowerment that I share with others. This process includes deep listening, writing, meditating, and silence to assist you in unlocking your doors of perception into the wonderful truths about your own essential nature which can lead you to embodying your true Self.

What better time, than the present unprecedented times of “lock down” and social distancing to dive deep into the wonder of the Self.

Doing What’s Good for the Soul to Create Lasting Happiness!

Featured

One of the many benefits of meditation is that through daily meditation one carves out time and space away from the drama of life.  This one aspect of switching out of the limited, everyday world of involvements with people, places, and things into the inner world allows the unlimited self to feel into new attitudes, reflections, and perspectives that will color and shape your outer world.  This is an ultimate form of creativity.  This is a space to reflect upon your life goals not just projects, career, and health, but to discern what is your ultimate course for happiness, eternal happiness. What is the highest aim you have for yourself, the soul, the cosmic navigator of your life. What direction will set you on your course for ultimate, everlasting happiness…

A great example of our time is the Dali Lama who says that “kindness is his religion”. This is the rudder of his ship that keeps his thoughts, words, and deeds on course. Your aim or goal may start out as simple as that. Meditation will assist you in staying true to your aim. For as you accumulate time in reflection and meditation, your thoughts will continue to decrease and slow down and you will see what patterns have been set in place that no longer usher you into the right seat.  When this begins to happen, you are in a better place to change the old patterns and create new habits that put you into the seat of self-determination, self-respect, and sovereignty.

At the end of the day –  check inside and see how this day added to or detracted from your feelings of positivity and wellness.  Where were you on course, where did you go off course… What situations, people, or tasks contributed to achieving your aim and which didn’t.  Keep an account, just as a successful business must keep accounts of profit and loss to stay out of the “red”.  Shakespeare said in one of his great plays: “All’s Well that Ends Well”. At the end of every day, ask yourself, did this day add to my account of joy or did it add to my account of sorrow? Use this end of the day reflection as a rudder to gauge what adjustments you can make to create more joy than sorrow tomorrow!  Adjustments usually involve attitude…what attitudes will I cultivate to arrive at my destination at the end of the day successfully…

To be successful at this, you must be willing to see yourself.

Ask yourself, am I willing to look into the mirror of my own heart?

If you are hesitant about looking at yourself…ask yourself another question: would I rather listen to my conscience/heart or to the ego?

Granted, it isn’t always easy to look at ourselves.  It’s much easier to see the faults of others, isn’t it?  Practically speaking, there’s not much chance that you can change anyone else. Therefore you may as well love yourself enough to make the changes in you that will bring joy and contentment.

When you have mercy and love for yourself, it makes it okay to see what mistakes are going on and to share them with a Higher Power, the One who has an overview of the situation and who has your best interests at heart!  Stay honest, clear your heart each night, and see how you will attract a shower of Divine Love and assistance as you open up each night. This kind of love makes the impossible possible.

Talk to yourself sweetly:  assure yourself that “I believe in Love and I believe I can change”.  Then you can do what is good for the soul.   Be willing to let the ego die and do what’s good for the soul!

Doing what is good for the soul can feel like a blow to the ego. In your meditations, practice being the witness, ie. the detached and loving observer. The muscle of awareness or the consciousness of being the observer, the loving witness will become stronger than the ego as it is practiced in meditation.  This awareness is your true power and will begin to be activated and available when you are in action during the day. As you witness yourself as you act through the body,  each day… as you become the observer and the doer at the same time, self-checking becomes automatic and natural.

While each individual’s aim or ultimate goal for themselves will be unique to them, a common denominator for all souls at this time is to reduce the amount of negativity in their lives in favor of creating more positivity.

A simple nightly ritual to help you with this process is to have the determined thought to let go of a weakness that you are aware of and to replace it with a virtue. This ritual can help turn the negative behavior around. For example, if you wish to let go of arrogance and its offshoots, a virtue to replace it with could be sweetness, cooperation, or humility. Rather than focus on the negative feelings and obstacles that arrogance has brought into your day, use your imagination to bring into your feelings what it could feel like to act sweetly, cooperatively, or humbly.

You may even wish to replay a scene from your day which didn’t turn out well.  See yourself replacing the old, weakening behavior pattern that emerged with its opposite…replace the arrogance with humilty, the anger with understanding and care, or the hurt or disappointment with a feeing of empowerment. Enjoy this contemplation.  Anchor in to the new feelings that may emerge, allow new patterns of response to come into play. This is using the same visualisation technique that successful athletes use regularly and frequently before a practice, a game or a match. As well as physically practicing the skills of their sport, successful athletes will also ‘see’ themselves going through the motions in detail. It all happens in the mind first. They see themselves playing the game successfully and then they go out and play to win! This is a great technique that you can use to your advantage during your nightly checking and in morning meditation as you set the tone of the day!

This is a wonderful opportunity to remind yourself that life itself can be seen as a game and that you are a player, an actor who is playing a part.  To play your part well, takes knowledge, love, determination, and lots of practice.  Be gentle and kind with yourself and the other players you encounter in this game of life.

Another end of the day reflection is to recognize what judgments or criticisms you  imposed upon yourself and/or others today .  Also check to see what judgments or criticisms were received by you from others.   In order to sleep with a clean and happy heart, visualise bathing it all away in a pristine pool or under a waterfall. Clean yourself in this way until you are left with only pure feelings of  compassion for yourself and others.

A powerful mantra that can be done seperately or in conjunction with the ‘bathing visualisation is: I am a pure soul and So-and-so (the soul that disturbed you) is also a pure soul.  Repeat it as many times as needed til it feels real and true and your negative thoughts/feelings have been washed away, transformed.

Be creative as you gain ease and success with your nightly ritual.  Take up  different themes.  For example, you may wish to bathe in the Ocean of Contentment and release all uncomfortable, unsatisfying feelings, complaints, and nagging inner voices.  As a soul, you are unlimited.  Whatever you focus upon will increase.  What will it be…contentment or discontentment… love or hurt…the choice is ultimately yours.

Self-checking is about lightning up and feeling great, not about blaming yourself (or others) or feeling guilty.

Let your nightly reflections be your rudder moving you easily to the shores of happiness, lightness, love, well-being and success

1 Sure Way to Eliminate Feeling Apologetic, Regretful, Guilty or Fearful~(part 1)

Laughter lives in your eyes, enabling you to see pathways that lead to happiness.

Is it possible there is one way to free yourself from the world of emotional pain, sorrow, fear, and regret? Sure, you might be thinking, and how much does it cost, and how long will I need to take it, and for how long will it work?

Asking those kinds of questions comes from the present state of the human condition: materially-minded, limited, and trapped in a world with many issues and lots of false, expensive claims.

This state is very familiar to all of us-as a matter of fact, most of humanity is immersed in what I have recognized after much meditation and in a flash- inspired by a great teacher-that the world of sorrow is all around, but we have a choice, to live in it or not!

Once you recognize how it is being created inside of you, you have the creative option to design your escape plan and get in touch with the inner world of happiness. First step is to recognize and remove yourself from the world of sorrow, second step – have a plan that you use to redirect your attention to the rediscovery and revival of the world of happiness within you. You are not alone. Others are also involved in this practice! It is not a process, rather it is a practice-that you will enjoy. You are replacing a very old habit with a new habit. You will have experiences when you practice. Then you will be your own authority!!!

But back to the first step of recognizing how you have been immersed in the world of sorrow, like a fish immersed in an ocean. The fish may not truly appreciate the ocean until it jumps out for a moment. For the fish, the ocean is essential, but for us this ocean of sorrow is non-essential, it is a choice. Let’s jump out by clearly identifying what it is and how it has become part of me!

The world of sorrow is created every day by many minds and many hearts feeling stuck in their past words, reactions, choices, and actions. Locked into a familiar-comfortably-uncomfortable state of consciousness limited by what is known, by what is seen, heard, tasted, smelled, and felt through the domain of the five senses. Relief from this state of affairs is occasional and temporary-perhaps a good meal with friends, a beautiful sunset, a shared bottle of wine, a good night’s sleep. And then the same old, same old thoughts are back on the screen of your mind, immediately as you awaken each morning. The cravings, the longings, the compulsive behaviors, the should haves, the wish I could have, the when will it happen….the dread, the news, the deadening routine… sound familiar?

To take the first step out of this world requires courage. Not every one will take that first step. But for the willing, with that step, a 1,000 boons become available. A new path of light opens up to the seeker and the pen of writing your destiny is at your fingertips. The world of happiness stands just on the other side as one awakens from the deep, addictive sleep of the world of sorrow. Besides courage, you must also invoke determination.

Take a deep breath right now and feel inside for these two qualities. Go beyond any doubts coming from within or without. They are there…go deeper. Courage, determination!!! Invoke these qualities. Take your mind out of the mud of regrets and the fears about repeating them…take the insightful lessons of the past with you, but not the negative feelings associated with the situations. The situations are over…Done. With courage and determination you are armed to create the future. Don’t let the past define your future or define your character, either!

It is a new day. How will it be different? What do I do if the old thoughts and feelings creep back in, in a moment? First off, do not be surprised or caught off-guard, be aware, have a plan! Think of this challenge of shifting out of the old world of sorrow and invoking the divine virtue of happiness as a game While playing a game, there is usually lots of enthusiasm and effort to win. Knowing the rules of the game is essential for success. Breaking a rule will disqualify even the most skilled players. Remember one of the rules of this game is not to waste a lot of time tolerating your old thoughts and feelings…ie. tolerating sorrow. First check to see what happened that triggered the wave of the old…the wave of sorrow. Identify your “Achilles heel”, i.e. the weak points in your being, the tears in the emotional or mental makeup that have been created by traumas and dramas of your past. Catch yourself, before responding in an old, habitual way! If you didn’t respond outwardly, but you felt yourself hit by the familiar arrow (which could be one of your own recurring, destructive, negative, wasteful thoughts or someone else’s) have a backup up thought to replace it. For example, go beyond the human dilemma, by reminding yourself who you really are! I am a peaceful, loving soul.

This is one of the major rules (truths) of this game called Life…. I am more than meets the eye…I am in fact, incognito…I am an eternal point of light, of consciousness…and the essence of my nature is that of peace and love. Are you willing to play? Can you feel that this is true?

It is understandable, that you may need to sit and contemplate about this and find that sacred awareness, that wonderful self-respect about your own reality. This is the missing piece of the puzzle…this is the game changer which gives you a chance to master life. This is where to start. This is the practice. If you become aware of this fact many times throughout your day, for even a moment or two, you will begin to see and know yourself and others in a new sweet way!

Everyone is a soul, eternal, originally pure, loving, peaceful, and happy. The game is to get back to this original state of consciousness or awareness. The game is to pay attention to this “rule”; the drill is to practice this awareness frequently to refine your skill at becoming a hero or heroine of your own life. As with anything you practice, it requires repetition. This practice is like turning on a light, flipping a switch. The light is within you…you are the light! You are a soul. You are a peaceful soul. Thinking about the real you will bring your eternal consciousness into the present and create a beautiful future, more beautiful than you may be presently able to imagine!

The practice is called Raja Yoga Meditation. In these days – yoga- has become fashionable and expensive in the west. Raja Yoga is the ancient and original form of yoga of India. It is the yoga of the mind. It is freely shared. It is the highest form of seva. It is priceless. It will connect you with the deepest truth of yourself and also with the highest truths of the One.

OM SHANTI~You are a Peaceful Soul~Enjoy the Game of Discovery

Following the Light of the Sun~ We leave the Old World Behind and Create the New One

“Imbibe this very well and share with others. Wherever you came from, you were pure.” At present no one is pure. With that said, what are the most important questions to ask yourself in life?

Why am I doing this…Am I doing this with love…If not, why?

If we ask ourselves these questions, we are able to check our own blind spots. Best to check the self now when there is the great opportunity to respond and change rather than at the end of life when there can only be regretful reflections and the response of sorrow!!

So fall in love with your own efforts to be the highest version of yourself. You can not be alert to transforming without love…or else your movements become mechanical. Results are important to note; you must not just be treading uphill. However, some results are very subtle to grasp.

How to cultivate this landscape of love which is the essence of every soul? How will I know that I am fully worthy of God’s Love? Let me accept this great challenge to accept my own worthiness and to know and feel love from the Supreme, who truly affirms again and again ~ you are my child, I am yours, and You Are Loved. Keep yourself open to allow God to love you and allow your heart to feel it. Accepting this Divine love, I receive an enormous power that gives me the power to transform. Along with Godly Love is the importance of love and compassion for my Self.

Be in Love with the Self. For ‘observing the self’ and ‘love for the self ‘ go together. Don’t ignore that you are a unique and special soul. Rather, consider yourself to be a soul (not the body you are inhabiting). Dive deep into the qualities of the soul and the treasures that lie within, especially the original treasures of peace and love.

The more I’m connected with my Self and experience the truth that I am a soul, the less I need or take from anyone else, especially in the form of their praise and acknowledgement or their rejection or defamation. For this, I the soul, need a lot of silence to see the game of the ego and to discern what I am not, from what I truly am. It takes a lot of courage to own our own greatness. We have to stop processing and start practicing the kind of awareness which leads us to the goal of self-realization. See your journey as a wonderful and interesting game. The game of emerging your original and eternal nature of love will take you beyond the unsustainable emotionality that has come from adopting the norms and standards of a world that is sadly on a path of destruction.

Play the game of love to create win-win scenes of a new norm, a new standard that discerns what is temporary, limited, and illusory from that which is real, eternal and unlimited.

Life, itself, and the scenes of life will give you a lot of signals. For example~ any form of discomfort in the self means something needs to be put right. Discomfort shows you what is calling out to be transformed (loved) in any moment.

Ask yourself, what methods do I have to keep me connected to my Higher Self, the soul who is eternally and originally a being of peace and love and to the signals of Life?

For many of us, journaling is the practice of choice, that helps to keep us deep within myself, that provides the time to be inward facing, i.e. introverted enough to catch myself in order to keep myself within the garden of flowers , the new consciousness which is establishing a world of happiness before my emotions go astray and take me off into the forest of thorns (the old, present condition of the world, which is on a course of self-destruct) in order to make room for the new!!!

There are many creative self-triggers that can be used to keep your awareness high and your vibration loving, happy, and peaceful. For starters, pay attention not to be influenced by negative atmospheres from the outer world. For this, some use doors as triggers…any door that you go through can be a signal to stay alert to carry across that threshold a strong sense of who you are as a loving, peaceful soul, immune to the vibrations that are causing others to be immersed in forms of negativity and sorrow. Instead carry your light of awareness with you, as you walk, consciously, through each door. Remember this is a game of consciousness, stay light, play to win and help others win too. The new world we are creating is full of happy, loving souls who are currently trapped in this old world and often do not even realize it; they, too, can only thrive in the light of love!

Another method for remaining self-aware or soul-conscious, is to check and see what are the EXTRAS I’m carrying around in my head? Extras = baggage that weighs me down and takes me away from the awareness of my loving, peaceful self. Extras = reacting rather than responding, saying too much, thinking too much, being opinionated, being influenced by past experiences, associations, and memories.

Remember when you clear the past, you create the future! Again, think “game”~ this is a game of retraining the mind. Stay loving, be peaceful.

Many of us, try to create an external comfort zone and surround ourselves with only things we can manage easily. This is very limiting and actually a form of laziness. When we try to live out of our own comforts, we are living according to the games that the ego likes to play-our spiritual love is then comprised; we become careless and lose our alignment with truth.

What to do? This is a game of expanding our consciousness of true love and true peace. So we go deeper into our own spirituality, our inner sanctuary of peace. This is called living from the inside out, rather than the outside in. When I’m truly comfortable on the inside, I make peace with everything. Situations become more co-operative and true love and contentment can arise.

For this to become my stable state of consciousness, I must develop great familiarity with my inner world, my inner spirituality, my inner resources of peace and love. For this, I must turn to the Source when my own resources seem to be running low.

For this purpose, the Benevolent Source is always available. Many souls have found that through a simple and profound practice of meditation called Raja Yoga or Remembrance, they can fill up with Universal Love and Light and Peace and be a powerful influencer in their own families, workplaces, and communities. As one remembers this Light and follows it constantly, one becomes not only a transformer of the self, but a transformer of the world.

There are many kinds of flowers- there is the rose, then there is also the flower that has no beauty or smell that grows in the wild.

The Divine Gardner says, ‘become a fragrant flower‘. There are many kinds of flowers- there is the rose, then there is also the flower that has no beauty or smell that grows in the wild.

A garden is small, He says, a jungle is large. The garden is carefully tended to by the gardener. It has beautiful flowers that spread their fragrance everywhere, they bring happiness to those who see them. A garden is free from thorns because thorns bring sorrow, flowers bring happiness.

Am I a fragrant flower?

Fragrance comes from purity – in thought, word, action and intent. Where there is purity, there is happiness, contentment, peace. Why? Because I am successful. People think success is dependent on others liking me or what I do. Actually, the Divine Friend says, success is based on intent. If your intention is pure, you are already successful. Then, the fragrance of those qualities spreads far and wide without me having to do anything. It is indeed like a flower in the garden that radiates beauty and fragrance automatically..it is not an effort, it is part of its nature.

As I become purer, my happiness and contentment increase. Purity comes from remembering who I am and Whom I belong to, in other words, it comes from remembrance. When I forget who I am and fall into the trap of body consciousness, I become contaminated with all kinds of traits – comparison with others, jealousy, hustling, one-upmanship, desire to win and be right all the time, etc. When I am consumed by these emotions, I live my life in fear rather than in peace and contentment. My mind becomes toxic and toxins don’t release a fragrance as much as they release a stink.

Don’t be a thorn, says our Divine Friend.

A bad smell brings unhappiness and discomfort to people around- they hold their noses and try to get away as far and as quickly as possible. On the other hand, when I am content, when I am happy and peaceful, it lightens the mood for everyone. Even if a person might be feeling low, when a good natured, contented person walks in, they make everyone else feel better.

The good news, the Divine Friend says, is that you are a fragrant flower, fragrance is part of your nature…you just forgot who you are.

It is not something I have to learn, it is not a muscle I have to grow…it is who I am innately. All I have to do is remember…not just in the morning but throughout the day as I am walking, talking, moving around. I, am a peaceful soul. I, am a loveful soul. I, am a child of God. Then, along with remembering, let me follow that up with being in that awareness. What does peace feel like, look like? What does being loveful mean? Let me touch base with my own truth, let me step into my reality rather than simply contemplate it.

This is who I am, a fragrant flower. Now let me remain in that awareness.

Gratitude Expressed

Greetings of Love and Blessings on this auspicious occasion of Rakshabandan which has given me the golden opportunity to be witnessed by all of you as I express my gratitude to the One on High for leading my heart Home to Him and the Family of souls that make up the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University where I am a student, teacher and family member since 2011.  

I am most grateful to the One who has found me and restored  faith and self-respect within me as an eternal being of Light.

I am most grateful for His teachings which have revealed to me the great joy and power of being introverted, inner directed, peaceful, and tolerant while living in a world that at present exemplifies many of  the opposite qualities.

This path of knowledge, meditation, and service is teaching me to embody my eternal and original attributes of Love, Peace, and Stillness as well as Joy and Enthusiasm.

This path has taught me how to hold myself in the Company of the 

Highest on High to be under His Canopy of Love and Power and how 

to bring others into that elevated company as well, through sharing the practice of Raja Yoga Meditation which I do on a daily basis.

This path has shown me how to be an effective helper by uniting in my consciousness with His Supremely Pure Radiance in order to be purified,myself, as well as helping in His Task of  sanctifying the entire world and every soul in it.

Through this path, He has become not only my loving Mother, protective Father,  ever-faithful Friend and Beloved Companion, but also the Guide and Teacher who shows me, as I pay attention, success at every step.

The Father has extended His Hand to me as I lend a hand to my brothers and sisters. He is the Magnet pulling us Home.

He has instilled within me the pure thought to be so stable in my 

awareness of Being His Instrument that there is no room for me,me,me or mine, mine, mine.  This is the sacrifice that liberates I, the Soul into its unlimited capacities.

For all this and so much more, I am eternally Grateful and Faithful

How Time is On Your Side!donnadalessio

Light at NightDo you remember the Rolling Stones’ song: “Time is On My Side”?  This article has been written about that kind of time, the kind of time that is truly on your side…on the side of humanity, on the side of progress after a long time of stagnancy and degradation.  Strong words, for sure, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you hear yourself questioning the previous statement about these times and how time could possibly be on your side, at this time when the globe is experiencing and witnessing a time of one natural disaster after the next, of pandemic, of brutality, of  inhumanity towards another’s human life, compounded by continued human atrocities to nature. Many of the scenes that are playing out at this time are creating a sorrowful darkness for our people and the world of nature. This piece wasn’t written to dwell upon the sorrows of our world, yet they cannot and should not be denied.   Rather my purpose in writing this is to alert you and uplift you and explain how time is of the essence and time really is on your side! 

Most of us are very familiar, although often uncomfortable with chronological time, as there never seems to be enough of it; and it seems to be speeding up everyday.  This type of fleeting time, which we measure through clocks, watches, and calendars is governed by the Greek god, Chronos who is god of time,  god of death, and the god of material consciousness.  As you can see, Chronos governs the 3D world where time doesn’t always seem to be on our side! 

But wait, there is another god of time, and his name is  Kairos.   This Greek governs a very different kind of time; he gives us a different sense of time.  In Kairos Time, one qualifies time in terms of events that make a deep impact on the quality of life.  For example, there are moments in everyone’s life which prove to be highly influential and even life changing.  They may only take moments to transpire (in chronological time) and yet they have the power to change the entire direction of your life, in a matter of minutes!

Kairos Time gives meaning to life that is far beyond ordinary chronological existence.  Some of those key Kairos moments are  ‘enlightenments’, but some are also traumas.  It is as though ‘time stands still’ in those moments.  These types of events change you so totally that you can never go back to what you were before.  The experience of Kairos Time creates new responses, clearer understandings and offer us important, defining, moments in our lives.

However, in order to truly change and evolve there has to be a force operating in time that rejuvenates everything and everyone; that force has to operate on life, physically, mentally, socially, financially, and spiritually in every possible way.  What is needed is a force that can reverse the effect of time!  The force we are talking about is an extremely, powerful, force which carries the state of the world and the states of people from the very bottom to the  very top, from its lowest ebb back to its original, purest and highest condition.

In India, a name for God is Mahakaal which means the Great Time. Maha(great)kaal(time) has the power reverse the effects of time.  Referring back to Mother India for another interesting point-the time, we are in right now, is called the Confluence Age.  A confluence is known to come between two things; in this case …we are an exceptional, though short period of time that has come between two very long periods of time.   The confluence that is now occurring is between the darkest of times and  the coming or the advent of the brightest of times.

The Confluence Age is the only time in our history when we have the possibility to elevate, to evolve, to ascend i.e. it is the only time that we have the force of Mahakaal, the Great Time supporting us to make a leap of consciousness to right all  wrongs and to settle all karmic accounts, both individually and collectively.  The importance of this time is paramount!  Many souls are tuning in to the enormous potential for greatness that is now present.

It is an epic time of both destruction and creation.   It is the peak of destruction which will create the pure opening into another age, an age of beauty, harmony, and prosperity,  the true heaven on earth.

However, in order for heaven on earth to be established, we must let go of  everything of this old world.   The destruction of the old is imminent, for without the complete culmination of the old age, the new age can’t be born.

Life and death, light and darkness, traumas and enlightenment, the natural cycle of life, devolution and evolution, the comings and goings of unprecedented events, it is all upon the stage at this time.  Trust in the greatness of this time, let go of the known shore, let go of your fears, especially the fear of death, for it is  the time for complete renewal, the time for the reset button which comes after death.  Keep your thoughts with the Great Force that is fully reversing the effects of time and bringing in a bountiful age when the earth and all souls are made new once again.

If this article has peaked your interest in some way or raised questions and you would like more information about the times we are in and this concept of the Confluence Age-feel free to contact me at 808-639-9436 to set up a time to share.

CONSIDER THIS!

“If you want an easy method for self-transformation, one that brings results, consider self-realization. Self-realization leads to self-transformation, naturally.

What do I need to realize…you may be thinking. Here is what we all need to realise. We are souls, separate from the body. We are children of God, with an originally divine nature of peace and love.

Self-realization BEGINS when our understanding of this BECOMES AN EXPERIENCE. Then it is as if the soul awakens. Truth is awakened. At this point it is no longer about changing ourselves. Instead, we undergo a metamorphosis, in which the soul’s latent beauty simply begins to take over, like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

Our original character, our eternal character of virtue and greatness begins to assert itself. To focus our efforts on evoking something lovely, rather than transforming something dreadful, is known as easy effort.

Truly, there is no need to judge ourselves harshly, criticizing ourselves for every mistake. The power to create all the changes we desire lies in the truth of who we are.

We just need to reach that truth and coax it back into being. This will dislodge and replace much of what we otherwise would spend a lot of time trying to change.

The power to create all the changes I desire lies in the truth of who I am.

HAVING FAITH

All the right thoughts and good feelings you would like for yourself and others already exist within you.

Do you have this faith?

Developing this faith is the real work of those of us on a spiritual path.

Realizing and accepting the highest truth about ourselves is the foundation of spiritual greatness.

It is easy to construct the part of the building that is above ground.

The real work lies in creating the foundation.

There is a gift for you when you do this.

It is called pure pride.

DEVELOPING PURE PRIDE

Pure pride is not ego.

Ego develops from identifying too strongly with the roles we play in the drama of life. Ego weakens truth: we become overly sensitive to other peoples’ opinions and are easily offended. Ego makes us judgmental: it runs an often unconscious mental tape of comments, criticisms, and corrections which distances us from others. If nothing keeps the ego in check, the heart begins to harden, making us more and more selective and prejudiced, closing us off from people and life.

Pure pride, on the other hand, is the result of exploring our spiritual heritage. It is based on the experience of being a soul, a child of God. As peace and love flow from the Supreme to us, souls, His children, the flame of pure pride is re-ignited.

As love flows from the Supreme to the soul, the flame of pure pride is re-ignited.

When we operate from pure pride, well-being is internally generated and a new sense of inner security and comfort allows us to be more relaxed in life. We are no longer so easily affected by the moods and opinions of others. There is less effort in being with each other. We find ourselves naturally opening to people, able to accept them as they are, genuinely interested in their well-being. There are feelings of compassion and it is easy to come close. We also become gentle.

When such feelings are again experienced by the heart, and not just simply understood by the head. our values begin to clarify and reaffirm themselves automatically. We are able to discern right from wrong and actually do what is right.

We become free from external influences and behave in a way that reflects the best in us; we are true to the highest truth within.

Pure pride is an experience of self-respect, to a degree that we would, before, never even have imagined possible.

Consider yourself to be a soul, and Remember Me.

Support for Creating a 9 Day “In Home Healing Retreat” which will cleanse your liver~

stretch to the light

A change of ‘season’ is in the air on Kauai…our mornings and evenings are becoming progressively cooler. September 21st and the Autumn Equinox are around the corner.  This is a great time to give your system a fresh start by doing a guided, tried and true natural “liver cleanse” based on eating the right foods at the right time.  If you work full time, are a full time parent, are weakened due to illness, or need support for any other reason, Let’s Talk about how I can assist you to incorporate this 9 Day Liver Healing Cleanse into your schedule.

According to Anthony William, New York Times best-selling author of Life-Changing FoodsThyroid Healing, and Liver Rescue– our livers run in a cyclic way, thus “the number structure of this liver cleanse is not arbitrary”…it is based on the fact that the liver runs in cycles of threes. “Aligning yourself with these three- 3 day liver-care increments that add up to nine days puts the liver into a deep cleanse state that can’t be achieved with other random number schemes…The cleanse needs to be constructed around threes in order to safely release the levels of toxins we’ve built up in this modern world.”

This cleanse is remarkably designed to also give support to your adrenal glands. Unlike many cleanses that require going hungry, this one does not starve you and force the adrenals to squeeze out excess adrenaline which puts more strain on the liver which is responsible for mopping up the excess adrenaline to protect other organs.

I have done this cleanse myself 3 times in the last 11 months and found it incredibly rejuvenating.  I’ve guided and inspired many friends and clients to embark on this refreshing journey that adds ‘life’ to our years.

If this sounds like something that calls to you, please call me and we can begin with a free 30 minute consultation on how I can assist you in integrating this cleanse into your life, whether you work, take care of a family, are in a weakened state, or any other situation that requires you to receive assistance in giving yourself this amazing “in home healing retreat”.

I’d love to serve you in this way! Call today 808-639-9436 to see how we can plan your 9 Day Liver Rescue Cleanse.

Happiness is Our Original Nature

Stop Running The Race … Enjoy The Present Moment 

Every soul seeks happiness. While happiness itself is searched for its own sake, many other goals such as health, beauty, money, or power are valued, because we expect that this is what will make us happy.

In today’s world there have been unprecedented  advancements in the areas of medical science and technology, but when it comes to attaining this blessed and beautiful state of happiness, not much has changed.  We often end up feeling that instead of being filled with happiness, instead we have spent our time feeling anxious and pressured to attain something, which could lead us to success and happiness.

The sense of happiness, a natural state of being to each soul, has become very difficult to experience in the world today, because it has become dependent on physical attainments and achievements.




As children, we were thrilled and happy naturally. We could share our experiences of such joys in response to simple events like hearing a bird chirping or sharing our snacks with a good friend. As we became older, pressure set in to achieve extrinsic goals like success in education, business, or even raising a family. This has resulted in losing the awareness that our first basic goal or responsibility is to express our joy of being.

For when we go against our own nature to be happy, we can never reach anywhere.

We each have a picture of what we wish to accomplish in this life. Though it may be a vague glimmering merged beneath your ordinary state of awareness…meditation can help you get in touch with it!

We aspire for different types of success. It could be money, health and social relationships. How close we get to attaining that goal becomes our measure for the quality of our life.  The problem arises when we become so obsessed with achieving something, that we stop deriving joy from the present moment. Don’t let this happen to you!  Happiness truly does lie within; it is intrinsic to the soul.  Come enjoy discovering your hidden treasure of happiness through Raja Yoga Meditation.

Many blessings on the Journey~Call me to join us for small group meditation, also called “Remembrance” and discussion.
