Welcome to my Moments of Awareness Collection ...
- as I openly share some of my memorable Moments of Awareness, my "Aha" Moments from my eclectic journey of life, including the 1970's and then jumps to 2000 to present. Contact me with any questions you may have.

Everything eventually comes to an end ... Everything. Yet Everything is part of the continuum of Time ... the Oneness of us all ... Eternal. Thus the very Essence of how we live our lives ... is always in Oneness with God-Source.
A Change on How You Connect
My own Dimensions of Personal Awareness have evolved these past few years to a mostly peaceful place of "Silent-Knowing" ... for I have emotionally transformed in unknown and unexpected ways ... and along with it, my Dimension of Love Energy has grown in unexpected ways too. And now that I understand how a simple daily practice could transform and nourish me emotionally and spiritually and physically with a new and positive attitude shift ... and that it was not difficult ... I knew it was time to claim it as Truth. The practice is simply this ... Perform "Acts of Loving-Kindness" every day whenever the opportunity presents itself ... large or small ... and importantly, offer them to everyone ... and often ... and realistically. Within a short time, you'll begin to notice an almost mystical change on how you connect with the world ... and how you and other see the-who you have become.
A Feeling of Falling
So why has fear of my chronic-sadness lasted almost all of my life? Now at 73 … I can see so well with 20/20 hindsight ... I think it came from never being introduced to the Frequency of Loving-Kindness growing up as a kid … not even that there was such a thing as Loving-Kindness. And then I thought … “What caused this Sadness in the first place?” I already knew the answer before I asked … “A fear of being all alone and not being connected to others … a feeling of falling with no end.” At times it felt impossible that I could ever pull myself out of from such a cosmic void. But that was then. … and this is now.
One of the most precious things in life ... is a friend. And just as each of the petals of this rose ... ... together make it the beautiful flower that it has become … So too, do the wonderful qualities and virtues of who you are ... ... together make you a beautiful friend.
A Greeting Each Day
Just as we would like our children to greet us each day with both a "Good Morning" and a "Good Night" ... ... so it is in our relationship with Godsoul and Godsource.
A More Important Question
So tell me friend ... At this very moment in time, which is more important to you? a) Your heart & soul connection with yourself? b) Your heart & soul connection with your God? c) Could they be the same?
A New Dimension of Learning
When you become aware that the outcome of your Acts of Loving-Kindness are a catalyst for future Learnings ... a new Dimension of Learning begins to blossom. Learn well from each Act preformed ... and evolve to yet another Dimension of Learning ... the Dimension of Being. "Learn the Lesson ... Live the Lesson ... Become the Lesson ... LLB"
A Personal Awareness
I have lived many different and significant life journeys. Yet I have lived the same life journey over and over again. How can that be? And today I will begin yet another journey with hopes it will bring a different outcome.
A Practice of Silently Listening
When you are talking with someone, practice silently listening to their vibrational frequency of their Heartcenter in the moment. And once you tune into the frequency, listen to it internally and use it as an important element of your communication exchange with them ... because now you know their truth.
I have been and still am a seeker … but I have ceased to ask the stars for answers. Instead, I have begun to listen and trust the wisdom of my Heart ... and the precious wisdom of my Godsoul.
A Silent-Knowing Revealed
I heard many times over the years, this simple para-phrased thought ... "Don't judge another until you have walked in their shoes." And today I had a new awareness, a new realization about these words. Interesting that today I understood what these words meant to me throughout my life ... ... but today I also understood these words from the perspective of "the-who" I am today ... ... an understanding that included a fresh dimension of Loving-Kindness ... ... and was revealed to me as Silent-Knowing. Baruch Hashem
A Vagabond First Class
How could I share love with someone ... ... if I didn't love myself? And how could I love myself ... ... if I didn't know who I was. Well, the time finally arrived when ... ... I stopped searching for "the-who" that I might be ... ... and accepted "the-who" that I was in that very moment ... ... and began to love myself with a Silent-Knowing. And now I feel comforted ... ... as I share love with others.
A Very Brutal Companion
The mind can be a very brutal companion sometimes.
A Way to Wisdom
Stop trying to figure things out ... ... or what would be the right words to say ... or what you should do next. Instead, learn to silence your mind and trust the Wisdom of your Godsoul ... and listen with ears of Loving-Kindness (Hesed). Now practice trusting your Godsoul ... and listen to the "Silent-Knowing".
Action and Words
Action and words go hand in hand ... ... And all good love is so free. But remember ... Action speaks louder than words ... ... And that's how love should be.
Am I Truly Satisfied
The most important thing in every relationship, as to whether it is successful or not ... is of course, how well you communicate with others ... and importantly with yourself too. Now, to be aware, during each of the unique dimensions of your personal life, the methods of communication with your relationships of all kinds, have changed (or not) based upon your life experiences. Ask yourself, "Am I truly satisfied with how my communications work in my life with the outside world?" Only you have the answer.
And Love More
They say "Love is the answer" ... So why then do we still find so many questions left to ask? Perhaps we need to ask less questions ... ... and Love more.
And the Buddha Replied
I asked the Buddha today ... "How old will I be when I die?" And the Buddha smiled and replied ... "As old as you need to be." I remained silent for several seconds before I sincerely asked the next question ... "As old as I need to be what?" This time, the Buddha only gently smiled at me ... and after a few moments, I found myself smiling back ... with a "Silent-Knowing" ... and my question answered ... "As old as I need to be."
Another Day ...
I am convinced that today is the 1st day of the rest of my life. And so it will be tomorrow as well ... and the next day and the next ... the 1st day of the rest of my life ... again and again, etc, etc. Another 1st day, with the opportunity to share Joy and Hope and Love. Another 1st day. Thank God, another 1st day. Yes, another 1st day to say, "I Love You". And here's to 1st days.
Any Kind of Sign
Have you ever prayed for a "Sign" ... "Give me a Sign Lord ... any kind of Sign." But the Sign never comes. Is it possible that just maybe a Sign did come ... ... and perhaps you just did not recognize it ... .. because it was a Sign to something else entirely different.
Is there really any purpose to it all? What difference will it make in what I do and feel in a thousand years ... ... or a hundred years .... .. or even just one year? But what about a purpose for this very moment in time ... ... and the next moment ... and the next? You choose? I did.
Awaiting My Arrival
I have died many deaths with yet another awaiting my arrival. What will I do differently until then? Maybe to humbly serve others and nourish the "Joy" as I do. But then I ask ... "Does anybody really care?" And what about you?
Awaken the Mind From a Dream
"Awaken the mind from its dream of Rationality. A higher lucidity is at Hand." Welcome.
Balance Between Inclinations
What are the ways to keep the "Yetzer Ra" (ego-center) and the "Yeter Tov" (concious-center) in check and balance with each other and the human-spirit? One way is to practice healthy emotional dialogue between the two.
Because There's Always Tomorrow
I have learned to trust the Universe and know it will do what is best for me ... cause that's what the universe does ... ... and have learned to accept the outcomes it provides ... ... just because there is always tomorrow ... ... with new lessons learned about what trust is about. Now trust, taking one step at a time.
Becoming One with God
LEARN life's lessons and explore God's ways. LIVE the lessons and discover meaning in God's ways. BECOME the lessons and awaken to God's ways. ... Becoming One with God
Lots of physical passion is exchanged between lovers ... and sometimes even love. Yes ... and sometimes even love.
Learn it ... Yes, learn it. Live it ... Yes, and live it. Become it. Yes become it! And now you have gone Beyond Mastery. So it is ... And it is so.
Beyond My Abilities
I used to think I would liked to have experienced more adventures during my life journey. But now looking back on it all, am well aware I had gone well beyond my actual inherent abilities ... which over the years, provided me an on again/off again euphoric rush. And now I accept the true reality of my life ... that I am but a simple human-being who has grown to appreciate God's simple offerings. "As it has been concealed ... so it has now been revealed." - Zohar And now I smile with gratitude from my Heartcenter and say, "Baruch Hashem" ...
Black Lives Matter
"I'm not sure where this road leads ... But I'm sure if I just keep on goin ... I'll get there just the same." And you ... will you keep on goin? But then, what else is there to do? "Black Lives Matter!"
Change ... the Unending Constant of Life
For some Change means "pain and the unknown". And for some Change offers both the "Known along with the Unknown". There are those who acknowledge that Change is a component to the equation of life ... just as they acknowledge and prepare for the change of the four seasons. For some, Change is an unexpected component in the calculation of every day living. What would we do without Change, the unending constant of life.
Connecting to the Cosmos
So many want to connect to the cosmos ... ... when they have yet to learn to connect with "pure-self".
Been searching and searching all my life ... ... for other humans that I could communicate with ... ... on a Heartcenter to Heartcenter and Godsoul to Godsoul "connectiveness". Why I never found such a "connectiveness"? ... The only reason I can think of is because it frightened me ... Maybe if I understood what "connectiveness" was about back then ... it would have been different. Where do I go next for the possibility of "connectiveness" ... perhaps a deeper reality now awaits me through my desires and actions of sincerely "serving" others ... and I am grateful for this possibility awaiting me ... " .
Demons Be Gone
Who are these dark demons and where do they come from? Do you know them too? "Demons Be Gone!" ... You can knock as much as you like, but I will NOT let you in.
Destinations and Journeys
Without a destination .... there can be no journey. ... And without a journey, life has no meaning. ... And without meaning, life has no joy. My next destination is to a place that welcomes home. What's yours?
Down to Earth
The more I grew to know things ... the hungrier I became for more knowledge ... as I realized how little I knew. But now I realize, it's time to come back down to Earth ... ... and stop my deep hunger for knowledge ... ... and instead nourish a deep hunger in my heart-spirt for living life with love.
Energy Frequencies of the Universe
It is time to learn to harness the energy frequencies of the Universe ... ... and give man-kind new meaning and understanding to life itself ... ... and the opportunity to evolve into Oneness.
Engaged in "Tikkun Olam"
I have peace of mind with the "Silent-Knowing" that when I do pass-on ... ... whether it be tomorrow or in 20 years from now ... ... my "Godsoul" will continue on ... ... and will return to our planet once more engaged in "Tikkun Olam" (repairing the world). And this "Silent-Knowing" pleases me and brings with it a purpose to my life at this very moment in time.
Evolution of Human Spirit
One purpose of Godsoul is to guide Humanspirit until Godsoul is no longer essential in the evolution of Human-Spirit ... When Human-Spirit becomes free from Egocenter's controlling ways, it begins to achieve vibrational harmony with Godsoul that acts as a connector with Godsource. Freeing can emerge with the daily practice of meditating together when both Human-Spirit with Godsoul become One ... ... and most importantly, with the daily practice of sharing Loving-Kindness with everyone and everything ... when opportunity knocks ... and with Silent-Knowing.
Fear of Not Evolving
I have chosen to stay too comfortable in my comfort zone ... fearful that I won't evolve if I step out of it. Truth be told ... I'll never evolve unless I leave my comfort zone ... and without looking back.
Feel the Love
Don't be blind to the opposition. And don't let the opposition blind you from enjoying your life the "best you can." Just keep in mind, as the "best you can" changes ... always enjoy the "best you can" ... and "Feel the Love" ... :)
Filtering Rays of Memories
Memories … what are they made of? Dreams of the past ... ... those thoughts in my mind that seemed to last and last. Precious moments I will never have again ... ... those precious moments when you and I were friends. The times we were together … it's all now but a dream ... ... as I wake up in the morning to an empty room ... ... filled with memories of you ... ... and filtering rays of Sun beams.
Frequencies of Global Consciousness
Living life fully and with meaning ... starts by living life as "the-who" you were born as ... your divine essence of self. And when you do ... your personal energy frequency also begins to recalibrate to include the frequencies of Global Consciousness.
From the Ground-Up
It is when positive change in our global world starts from the ground-up ... that our global community can heal ... can nourish itself ... can give life meaning ... filled with joy and love. The chronic top-down approach at making our world a better place, since the beginning of recodrded time, has repeatedly failed again and again. But then it depends on whose definition of "a better world" you use.
Get Out of the way
Not to just listen to what the Universe is telling you ... ... But to get out of its way and let it happen. Try it ... "Let Go ... and let God".
Get This off My Chest
Have to get this off my chest. I feel very hurt right now. I’d like to say something mean and scream out loud ... except that’s not who I am and it won’t make me feel any better in the morning. But I think I will scream anyway when I get done writing this. It’s so difficult when someone that you want to love does not want to love you back. I understand now … maybe I’ve always understood … but just not willing to accept the truth. It has just been very hard to accept things for what they really are … and not get confused on how I hoped they’d be … but the time for me is now to accept. It just hurts.
Gifts from God
For me, tomorrows are always special gifts from God ... ... and I will always be grateful for them and look forward to the possibilities and unexpected discoveries they offer. And then be witness to what and how I can share such possibilities and discoveries with all those I meet that day ... … with both those I know … and strangers too.
And once you have awareness of your Godsoul ... ... follow it wisely and openly ... allow it to guide you on amazing journeys ... with with each Godsoul in the world on a different mission ... yet together all working toward achieving the same mission .. World Peace ... overflowing with Love and Harmony for everyone.
Good Morning Sunshine
As I sit on a hilltop and meditate facing east, I feel the warmth of the early morning sun on my face as it rises above the horizon and I say outloud ... "Good Morning Sunshine. There is no-one more dependable than you. Thank you for nourishing my Heart-Center with Hope, Trust, and Loving-Kindness."
Have a Blast
Thoughts I shared with my son today ... ... "Take life seriously ... ... but have a blast livng it."
How many have I loved? ... How many have I lost? Yet, I have not shared Love with even one ... ... but for a few moments in time. For how could I share Love with another ... ... when I've never really experienced what Love is. And so how many have I lost? ... ... Maybe none at all.
How Oneness Can Blossom
There are three distinct dimensions we human-beings occupy ... ... Physical, Emotional and Spiritual. And each dimension continually changing according to it's own needs ... ... with each dimension affecting the others. And please note ... ... each dimension has its own meaning to the emotion of Love. And when these three meanings are in harmony ... Oneness blossoms.
How many of us?
How many of us are there ... ... seemingly trapped in an endless void of "Emotional Loneliness" ... ... with noplace to turn to ease our pain? And you?
I Had Hoped ...
For most of my life, I had hoped my life accomplishments would end up "much differently" than they have. I was sure my dear heart's desires would eventually find me and come knocking on my door. But I now realize that "much differently" was an impossible fairy-tale which I imagined ... dreams that remained intangible dreams dangling in front of my eyes ... dreams that led me to a destination called "no-wheresville." And here I am today, with a Silent-Knowing that "much differently" is exactly where I find myself today ... a place that up until now, I never knew what it was about or that it even exited ... to be at peace and to be in harmony with "the-who" I have become in my Heartcenter and with my Godsoul to guide me. Baruch Hashem
I Like "the-who" I Am Today
I like "the-who" I am today. And this means today I am appreciative of all my life experiences ... some very pretty nice while they lasted ... some were pretty lonely ... and some were emotionally painful. But here I am today, appreciating the past as just that, the past ... and living as a transformed human in a new and fresh Dimension of Personal Awareness ... with a frequency of Trust.
I Wanna Say ....
I wanna say “I love You”, but I don’t even know you. I wanna say “I care”, cause I really do. I wanna say “I need you” like nothing else matters. I wanna say these words, cause I’m wanting you. Time will let it happen, Yes I believe that it can happen. Time will let it happen cause it just has to be. Time will let it happen cause that’s what time does. Time will let it happen as it sets our hearts free. 3/28/07
I Will Never
I've come to realize all the things I will never be or have. I will never play center field for the Chicago Cubs ... ... nor own a yacht to live on ... or drive a 911 Porche Targa. I will never know my great grandchildren ... ... nor be a guest on the Johnny Carson Show. But what I will always be and have ... is the satisfaction of just being me.
If I Knew Then ...
Today I asked myself ... ... "If I knew 'then' ... what I know now... when would 'then' be?" The answer came quickly ... "When I first met her." (this 1970 picture of her recently showed up ... OMGosh!)
In a Blink of an Eye
The reality of Love ... What may seem like it would last forever ... ... only really lasts but for a few moments in time. Appreciate and cherish each of those moments before they vanish ... ... in a blink of an eye. The reality of Love.
In a Million Years - Serenity
Is this All There Is?
"You don't know what you don't know." And what you do know is all you have to choose from as your life journey continues on each day. And one day, you find yourself asking ... "Is this all there is?" Just perhaps it time to leave your comfort zone and explore.
Jedi Secrets for My Son, Jake
Become aware and practice these Power Energy Frequencies when needed: - the Frequency of Appreciation - the Frequency of Openness - the Frequency of Worthiness - the Frequency of Compassion - the Frequency of Trusting And the most important ... - the Frequency of Loving-Kindness
Let Us Unify Our Strengths
Dear Friends of my Past ... my Present ... and Friends yet to Be. Just perhaps ... ... it is time for each of Us ... and all of Us ... ... to find and acknowledge each other ... ... and unify our strengths ... ... in our common pursuit to live and maintain our own absolute Truths that continually evolve. And together, let Us join in Unity as One.
Listen to Their Wisdom Song
When you are having a conversation with another ... listen to the "Wisdom Song" they sing without feeling a need to interrupt ... and to be heard ... and to correct. For this is their truth ... feel their truth ... feel their light ... with no right or wrong ... just the Wisdom Song of their Heartcenter ... and graciously acknowledge.
Live Life to Love
I don't want to live life to just be happy ... ... I want to live life to be happy ... ... and share my Joy. I don't want to live life to just be one with MyGod ... ... I want to be One with MyGod ... ... and know MyGod is One with me. I don't want to live life to just live ... ... I want to live life with compassion ... ... and share my Love with all.
Living in the Now
"That was then, this is now." But what does that mean? It's been a long and challenging journey for me, but I finally am living in the "Now" without the "Then". I welcome this new and amazing awareness of what "Now" means to me every day of my life. And with this new "Silent-Knowing", living each day with appreciation of the divine essence of "the-who" I have been all along.
Lonely for a Hug
Yesterday afternoon while walking along Lithia Creek in the drizzling rain, I felt so lonely for a hug ... ... so I hugged a tree for several seconds. And when done I told it “Thanks”. It remained silent. But I knew a wonderful energy exchange had just taken place.
Love … have you no beginning? ... ... Love … have you no end? So many have known you ... ... Yet there are so many hearts left to mend. Some have known you many times ... ... While others but once. To some you are hard to find ... ... While to others you are in abundance. I always wanted Love as my friend ... ... I thought of it that way. To have Love as my friend ... ... And be happy every day. It’s taken me such a long time to realize ... ... Why this had not come true. Because I found Love needed me as a friend ... ... I found Love needs friends too.
Makes Life a Good Thing
Having a Trusted Life Partner ... ... to enjoy and share God's beauty and love with everyday ... ... makes life a very good thing.
Master Your Past Life Events
Many are plagued with "difficult" emotional experiences from past life events ... unprocessed emotions stuffed away ... emotions desperately longing to be heard and set free. And know that each person's "difficult" is unique ... and yet so similar to that of others. Consider this ... When you look back in time at difficult life events ... be prepared not to see the past with the same emotional understanding as the who you were back then ... and not with the same mindset that was still exploring what emotions were about. But instead, understand the past through the evolved mindset of who you are today. Together with the awakened wisdom of you Heart-Center ... and with your own Godsoul you have learned to trust ... find "positive" take-aways from those difficult life events ... and importantly ... a reason to be grateful. Because now you can master your past life events with new Emotional Dimensions of Understanding as to what the past was really all about for you. And now onward my friend, as the future awaits us once more ...
Meaning in My Life
I finally realized there was no end to the often lonely pursuit of finding the meaning in my life … meaning that I had been searching for as long as I can remember … and now have finally stopped. But what I found instead was something so much more incredible. You see, each morning when I wake, I feel grateful that my Godsoul has been restored to my body … and for the opportunity I will have that day to share love and joy with family, friends … and most important with the strangers I meet along the way. And please know, most days I am successful. And please know, most days I now have meaning in my life.
Memories ... Dreams of the Past
I think Barbra Streisand said it best ... "Memories ... like the corners of our mind." From what I know ... we all experience wonderful dreams of the beautiful times from our past ... some real and some imaginary ... I know I certainly do. Dreams as only we can remember them ... times gone by that we wish would last and last. Yet sooner or later we all must open our eyes ... and face the reality ... "That was then ... and this is now." And always remember to be grateful for all those memories that still come to us when we call to them ... of what we once experienced ... of what was once ours. And smile from the inside out ... and say out loud ... "Thank You Universe ... Thank You". And get ready for tomorrow ... for soon it will be today.
Mind, Body and Soul in Balance
Getting one's mind, body and Godsoul in balance ... ... and keeping it there ... ... is an on going process ... ... as the balance required overtime ... ... is constantly changing.
Early this morning I was in my small patio planting two tomato plants while listening to quieting and soothing music as it softly played on my iPad ... and listening to the birds sweetly sing along adding to the serenity. As I was adding a little Miracle Grow to the tomatoes to give them a life boost, I remembered when there have been times in my life that I needed a little Miracle Grow too ... guess that's what friends are for.
Morning Mantra and Prayer
I found myself saying this mantra during my meditaions and prayers this morning over and over ... ... "Nourish my heart and soul with love and joy ... Nourish my heart and soul with love and joy."
My Awareness Frequency
My Awareness Frequency is broadened when I discuss and listen openly, with no judgement, to ideas and thoughts within a gathering of Friends.
Raspberry drops and lemonade ... These are things I’d surely trade. To see that smile upon your face ... And hold you in a warm embrace. Then kiss your lips so tenderly ... Then turn you loose and set you free. With hopes that you’d come back to me.
My Final Desire
I decided today that my final desire in life would be this ... To share my stories about my quest to achieve each of my heart's desires ... ... desires shared through my body ... desires shared through my mind .. and desires shared through my Godsoul. All this, so I can meet and truly appreciate "the-who" I have become today.
My Imaginary Friend
Lips to fire that lady had, lips of the fire that burned. She left her brand upon my heart, ... with a kiss goodbye, she’ll never return. Those last few days we spent together, ... I knew things were coming to an end. For soon she would no longer be my lover, ... but just an imaginary friend.
My Own Master
And as my way of thinking has evolved over and over again through the years ... so too has my way of living life evolved ... as who I am. And now joyfully recognize the precious journey called Life I have traveled ... that I was always my own Master along each step I took. Always in Oneness … Always in Peace ... Always with Loving-Kindness.
I will enjoy today as if it were my last ... and then the next day ... and the next after that. And sometimes getting past the day is difficult ... and sometimes getting past the day is filled with joy. And each day, I engage in what awaits me ... to the best I am able. And sometimes ... that even means doing nothing at all. Now you know ... "My Practice"
My Purpose ... My Meaning
Before I can know my "true" purpose and know my "true" meaning for my life ...I first must know who I am ... and who I am not ... or do I? Cause maybe there is no "true" purpose or meaning in life other than the one we choose for ourselves. Did you choose yet?
I have been told ... "Find the safe and comforting space of your stillness." Yet I have been still for so long now ... ... yes very still. And in this exact moment, that's all I have left ... ... my "stillness". Guess I should be grateful ... ... as there are many who don't have "stillness". And yes ... I am grateful for mine. But it feels so very lonely here ... perhaps a shift may be coming ... Blessings Friend ...
Nothing to Show
When you've won 1st prize so many times ... But now you've nothing to show. How should you feel, what do you say, As this empty feeling starts to grow. Why go and win another race? Why go and win again? For the glory of it all you say, But tomorrow will still come to an end.
Nourish My Heart and Soul
I use to pray to God ... ... "Heal my heart, heal my soul." Now I pray to God ... ... "Nourish my heart, nourish my soul."
Nourishing Your Heart
To heal your heart, nourish it through prayer by connecting your Godsoul with the source energy of God. And as this practice of nourishing your heart continues, you begin living life in peace ... ... and in Oneness with God.
Nourishing Your Heart with Love
Practice harmony and balance between your Godsoul and your Spiritself through meditation. This practice opens a spiritual connection for nourishing your Heart with the Godsource energy of Love.
Number One Desire
My number one desire for planet Earth is simply this: Re-calibrate Earth's frequencies to a setting that revitalizes and strengthens the "frequency-set" of Loving-Kindness ... for all, and with all. And when these vibrational frequencies are present ... we each will experience an inner Oneness with our Godsoul ... creating a global consciousness for all to share ... "Silent-Knowing".
On My Planet
On my planet, people are never hateful to one another. Why? Because on my planet ... ... we know when we compassionately take care of one another ... ... it’s for the well-being and serenity of our planet ... ... and serenity of us all.
On That Day of Passing
If you should be judged on your day of "passing" ... What would you like it to be based on? Perhaps on what you did and accomplished in your life? ... or perhaps on the wisdom you gained on your journey? ... or maybe even the person ... "the-who" you became? ... or something entirely different? Which one would you choose? Which one? As for me me ... all of the above please.
One thing for sure ...
The journey I thought my life would take me on ... and the journey I have experienced thus far are light-years apart. In hindsight, it's easy for me to say "Thank You" Universe for all the many challenging and difficult life lessons you provided ... and for being so patient with me. But the journey certainly was never easy ... and at times, it was emotionally debilitating, right from the get-go. Over and over, I experienced the pain from an "emotional-void" in my life. This may sound silly, but as a kid I had no name to call this feeling of "emotional-void" ... and I thought, "That's just how it is." ... like it or not. Today, I deeply appreciate how my awareness and understanding of Life and Love and Compassion have transformed from the "the-who" I was ... to "the-who" I am in this very moment ... and then the next ... and the next ... always with an ever evolving Dimensions of Personal Awareness.
Oneness with Ein Sof
Sometimes I choose to meditate to quiet the fears causing an uneasy feeling in my Heartcenter. And when I quiet these fears ... ... an opportunity arises ... ... a joyful feeling of Peace and Oneness with Ein Sof ... ... as it soon blossoms with an inner smile ... ... and a Silent-Knowing that all is OK once more.
Our Enemy by Definition
Their mission in life is to destroy anyone and everyone who does not conform to their standards of right and wrong and good and bad.
Peace and Harmony
You will enjoy true peace and harmony with your Godsoul ... but only when you free your own true divine-self and know who it is. Peel back the layers of "shoulds and shouldn'ts" that have been taught to you ... rules that have been smothering the very divine Human-Spirit you were created as. Embrace your true divine-self ... and be all you can be.
Practice of Acceptance
I am perplexed at this very moment as to ... What’s good ... and what's bad. All I know is ... “What is, is” ... And right now I don't like "What is" one bit. Except that it offers me the important practice of Acceptance ... ... acceptance of "what I can not in change."
Questions to Ponder
When you know the answers ... won't you tell me? 1. Where is the "wonder" found in life today? 2. When do your prayers come alive? 3. What's the difference between caring about someone ... and loving someone? 4. What's the difference between the Sefirot of: ... Wisdom (Chokhmah) ... Understanding (Binah) . .. . Knowledge (Daat)
Reality of Reality
Just listened to the words from this Rod McKuen song, "I'm at Peace", from 1974. Do you know of him? I heard the words of this song reflect how I feel about "the-who" that I am in this moment of time ... ... because mostly "I am at peace" ... ... with a continuing acceptance of the "Reality of Reality" ... ... and a lost passion for denying "What-will-never-be". Yes, the time is getting "closer" ... and being at peace with the "Reality of Reality" adds Silent-Knowing to my Heartcenter ... and makes it so. Baruch Hashem
Right Answers - Right Questions?
Perhaps it's not that you aren't offering the right answers ... ... perhaps you aren't answering the right questions. And how do you know if you are answering the right questions?
River of Tears
While listening to Dianna Krall sing "Cry Me a River" ... I found myself dreaming of another time ... another place ... as there were times I thought I might drown in that river ... but somehow over time ... survived a much wiser man. But occasionally I still am reminded of that river once again ... and gently smile as sweet memories float through my mind ... and I feel grateful for that journey called "Love".
As I watched the end of the movie "Citizen Kane" ... ... it made me wonder what my "Rosebud" would be. Maybe my first 26 inch bike when I was 12 years old ... ... my best friend for several years that I called "Masey". Do you have a Rosebud too? Glad I did ... cause I loved mine.
In the back of my mind, I somehow believed that someone would come along and save me ... I guess from myself. But then, I would really never have been saved would I? Now my "Silent-Knowing" tells me I can only be saved when I save myself. And realize I can only save myself when I surrender. Questions? As for me, I've stopped asking.
Sense of Safety?
While sitting in my yard, I watched a deer across the street in my neighbors yard munching away on the vegitation while people and cars passed it by only a few feet away ... ... and the deer did not flintch. I realized how well the deer adapted to the safe-space of Ashland. But must ask ... "Realistically, does the deer have a false sense of safety ... or does it even matter?" And what about you?
What separtates us from God? What are the barriers? Words ... simply words.

And know this ... by definition, "Change Is Forever." But if Change is Forever, maybe there is no such thing as Change?

Understanding Sweet Blossoms
I thought I understood. I liked what I understood. But now I am not so sure I do understand. How wonderful it was to feel at one with the flowers I saw along the roadway that so magically reached out and touched me. Always thankful to have experienced such Sweet Blossoms. But these flowers soon disappeared as the season quickly changed, With nothing I could do to stop it. Left only to dream of their beauty … from the past. Left only to dream of their beauty … yet to come. But soon the season will again … once more … change. With hopes these beautiful flowers do re-appear. Perhaps, just not in the same places. And soon … I will again … once more ... understand.
As the union of man and woman evolves, it brings together complementing energies … energies which are based on the “Who” that each is and the “Who” that each is becoming. And thus this union gives birth to its own meaning for the word “Love”. And the very essence of this meaning brings each closer to the Oneness of God. As two become three, and three become one …. and then returning back to two again.

Know your "Special" and let it to shine ... and often.

And today, when I look back at those special moments ... and see how they have unknowingly transformed into precious moments ... as I now understand and greatly appreciate these precious moments very differently from when they first occurred ... and say ... "Thank You". So when does the grieving of loss subside? ... Perhaps when the grieving process transforms itself into a "Celebration of Gratitude" for those precious moments ... from once upon a time.
I do accept the "Who" I am ... the "Who" I have become. Just unsure who this "Who" really is ... or if it really matters any more ... or if it ever did. Hello "Who" whoever you are. Nice to finally get to know you 'Who" after all this time.
With No Judgement ...
