Soul Healers

In forests, deserts, plains, mountains, and valleys – the ancient healers of soul, mind and body knew Grace, Power, Wisdom, and Love.  They lived before civilization – awake to the sky, earth, sun, rain, fire, and seasons.  Now we know the sky through ever changing varieties of electronic media. Very few live the primal life. Agriculture brought cities; and the flowering of poetry, writing, politics, and complex divisions of labor.  Some went back to the forest and deserts to connect with the elemental powers. Finally returning to their communities speaking and teaching truth and wisdom. That is our story too. We quest for knowledge of stars and atoms, forgetting the knowledge of Life and soul; and, recklessly subduing the earth and each other. What did the ancient ones know and teach? Did they cut through all illusions and see truth behind the blinding power of ego? Can we weave these personalities, these archetypes, together into wholeness? Can we? Dare we not?  It’s time for a new alliance of humans, earth, and cosmos; and humble submission to the Source of all-that-is.

Take a Pause


Take a pause. Now do a slow long deep breath. Feel gravity's downward pull. Celebrate the in and out breaths. Sense patterns of light all round. Take a pause. Be-here-now in all its banality and glory.

Techno-Aborigines


Shortly after graduating from school, I found a job in ADP (automated data processing), as it was called in the early 70's. Soon I spotted a "techo-aborigine". He was working off site in a coffee house. That got my attention.  I wanted to work that way too. Being at an office all day was not so much fun. We are turning back into "aborigines" as we return to more mobility. Many of us can do our jobs at home, workplaces, or vacation resorts. The reach of the global communication networks is global. Work supervisors are beginning to count results not desk time.

Deep Stillness


It takes a life time to reach deep silence or stillness. Don't expect instant results. Everyday of your life, do spend sometime in inner quiet or stillness. Call it meditation, prayer or contemplation. It will nurture you and make you stronger than anything else you "do".

Healing through Joy

It is time to heal through Joy.

Now is when you find your healing through Love,
for Love is wiser than we are.

Longing to be understood, Love will only stay if it is welcomed.

Try on your beauty everyday.

How many small-seeming daily aspects can you fall in love with?

Unfold your Light and Shine!
