“There is nothing permanent except change” (Heraclitus). We believe our lives are proceeding linearly, fearing any change in the status quo, coveting a routine that keeps us safe from facing the unknown at any moment. The illusion of stability allows us to function day to day. Yet, in an instant, everything we know can change. We can be confronted with accidental or natural occurrences that shift our personal paradigm, requiring us to find an inner source in order to meet the challenge of acting seemingly without a net. It is then that we need to awaken our awareness of our true spirit nature and allow ourselves to reach out toward other spirits, seeking help to regain our footing. Faced with sudden change, we can lean on the totality of the interdependent web that sustains us through compassion and love. Namaste!

  1. I know that when faced with my own personal challenges, I have been known to rail against fate, feel targeted or victimized.. but when I am able to finally step back, I realize that everything has a purpose. Sometimes the purpose is to teach me a new skill, sometimes it's to set up a situation so I can help someone else... and sometimes the reason is so complicated it's like untangling the most tangled up necklace; but ultimately, I have truly come to believe, that no matter how tragic something appears, it will ultimately lead to the greater good.

    That is not to say that humans don't need to stop creating ugly situations, like war and genocide, but sometimes these horrible situations are designed to teach us just that. My hope is, that natural disasters, like the recent one in Japan, will ultimately lead to the earth changes necessary for the new age.
