The Vastness

The Vastness

Did you get to see the eclipse? What a beautiful sight. I watched from my deck here in Denver where 92% of the sun was covered. So amazing!

 

Eclipses, meteor showers, and gazing at the stars touch our hearts in a particular way. When we look at images from the Hubble telescope, we are uplifted.

 

These things remind us of the vastness of reality. They are a great “hello” that consciousness is so much larger than we tend to notice.

 

It’s easy to become mired, even stuck, in the small world of the thinking mind and the seeming challenges before us. When we look up, we remember there’s something much bigger going on here.

 

We, too, are much bigger, much vaster than we tend to notice. As we get to know ourselves as spiritual beings, our sense of ourselves becomes larger. The challenges before us become smaller relative to our own sense of self.

 

What was once a big deal becomes not so big at all. This transformation makes contentment, joy, and true creativity more accessible.  Thank you, sun and moon, for a great reminder to look up and remember the vastness around us and within us!

As we bumped along, there was a mixture of reactions among the passengers.   Some released excited hoots, as if on a roller coaster. Some held tight, trying not to move at all. A… Continue Reading

Life On Earth

Life On Earth

There’s a common misperception in spiritual circles that if one sets their energy “just right,” then nothing unpleasant will ever happen. When a challenge inevitably arises, the person wonders what they did wrong.   This idea has a large dose of that punishment and reward energy we see in judgmental, dogmatic paradigms. I think of it… Continue Reading

Decluttering Reality

Decluttering Reality

I’m decluttering. We’ve been in our current home almost 7 years now, the longest I’ve lived anywhere in all my years. The urge to move comes up on occasion, but that wouldn’t be wise in Denver’s current market. Instead, I’m clearing out as if we were packing up.   As I reorganize shelves and let… Continue Reading
