This blog is about living life differently. To quote the Grateful Dead in Scarlet Begonias “Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.” So as I go about my day, I ask the Source, God, the Divine, the quantum field, the Universe etc.. to help me see the light. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it works but I’m off my game. This engagement with Source is often referred to as higher consciousness or enlightenment. Others call it mysticism or awakening of the kundalini. Abraham Maslow, one of my heroes , coined the term self-actualization. They all work, you decide.
I will draw from various disciplines, teachers, and experiences such as Buddhism, Quakerism, Jung, Astrology, A Course in Miracles, Eckhart Tolle, and Matt Kahn to illustrate my travails. I hope that you will notice the unifying thread contained within each and every post ~ to inspire through the examination of the extraordinary in daily living, one story at a time.
I will ask the difficult questions on this wild ride and invite you to provide the answers along with me. This blog is a living, breathing, document so it will evolve as I evolve. Feel free to revisit posts and pages over time as I will revise content and format as intuition dictates. Do expect the uncertain, paradoxical, sometimes illogical to emerge on these pages. This is where the light often resides.
This project is dedicated to Robert Graham. Robert was a great friend, confidant, and mentor. Robert was also a gifted psychic and astrologer. His uncanny wit and unwavering candor often elicited much laughter and respect from all those knew him. Once I learned of his passing, I reflected on all the sage advice he had dispensed to me over the years. He insisted that this material world was filled to the brim with magic and that each moment was interwoven with mystery. He was relentless in his insistence that I write for the public. He would say it was imperative that I get my story out there. For many years, however, I procrastinated. I am hoping he can read this material now, wherever his spirit dwells. Perhaps he’s helping the words flow through me onto this page right at this very moment.
UPDATE – I was reading this page and thinking about Robert. I googled him and noticed his old blog – back when I read it I didn’t notice these details, but yes it is a WordPress blog! It is also still up and running! Perhaps he was summoning me from another dimension. If you are curious, please take a look to get a taste of Robert’s style. I think he would like that very much.
Here’s a link to his post on coincidence http://psychicexpress.wordpress.com/2012/01/10/it-was-just-a-coincidence/
