THE END OF A WORLD

THE END OF A WORLD
Everything depends on how you look at things. We are presently in a story about the end of a world… not THE world, but a world… an era, and we each have an amazing part to play

TO BE FREE
To be free we must be willing to both take full responsibility for our lives and to completely lose control.

SPIRITUAL TEACHERS
For me, a true spiritual teacher must be innocent, without guile or personal ambitions. That is why most of my teachers are under ten years old. They are either children, or birds, or dogs.

THE FINAL GUARDIANS
Fear believes in its separation from God. It generates grief, guilt, shame, selfishness and all the rest. God believes in the freedom of God and that all is God. We are all in God and God is in us. From God’s perspective we are God, with many faces, having a wild adventure.

OPEN OR CLOSE
There is the tender reaching out in receptive openness, and the sting, the pain, the traumatic shock, the tight fist, the withdrawal. All life comes down to these two dynamics. One we call Love, the other fear. One we call joy, the other grief. One is a free functioning of life loving Life through us. Another we label with a countless labels and treat with a thousand therapeutic models, diagnosis and drugs. But it all comes down to this, we relax and open; we react, tighten up, draw back and unconsciously grieve our loss of openness and freedom.
