Be Brave

12941015185_3245254647

If you are speaking something new into existence, those around you, unless they have the desire, the urge, or are organically able to go beyond the mind, will not hear. It is difficult if not impossible to understand (stand under) that which is not yet present. And yet you must, knowing that this work is important, still it is not for everyone. But if it is your intention, you must speak, regarding less, that others seem misinformed, disinterested or even angry. We who are used to knowing, depending on what is known are not aware we are not alive. So when you are coming with notions beyond our intelligence, speaking of things beyond our imaginings, expect us to feel. And be brave, my Metaphysical Warriors. For all Mankind is counting on you. Shields up. Hearts Open.

Lakota Prayer
Great Mystery,
teach me how to trust my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.

Fall!

The MORE LOVE Club

If you are jumping from the box, (the box which is the representation of your life inside the cardboard walls of opinion, judgment, rules and laws), to a bigger box, (expansion and greater awareness, new writing on the walls), it will take time to build the muscular structure for the jump. In other words, if you are doing your life, you will be jumping and you will be falling. And I say to you, in order that you continue to jump, despite the fall, that because you are jumping and because you are falling, you are in fact evolving. In the jump, including the fall, especially the fall, because you fall, you cannot, not be falling forward. Bravo!

Pivotal Moment

The MORE LOVE Club

When you read a book, watch a movie, you look carefully, follow the clues, focusing on each person, because each character reveals information, advances plot and compels the hero/heroine to transcend.  What if you saw your own life that way?  What if every person in your story was put there, by some higher power, the universe’s own personal scriptwriter, to show you, teach you, point you toward that moment, that wholly expanded instant, when your culture (cult you are all) dissolves into the power of your essence, your heart, your intuition becoming spirit (spirit you are all), spiritual?  What if you gave your life’s attention to your most mattered self and those around you, watching, knowing that each person, each moment, is divinely created for you?  What if you are the hero/heroine being led purposefully. every moment, every instant, through the magical plot…

Growing Roses

The MORE LOVE Club

If you are watering the weeds and wondering why the roses are dying, picking through the garbage when you know its trash, then the lesson that you are getting, aware or not, is that what you put your attention on grows, expands, becoming life-sized. So, if you put your attention on the self, watch you, become the observer observing the observation, no opinion, no judgment or lies, but deeper, truly seeing what you water, so like the Alice in Wonderland of Roses, growing ten feet tall, you get the teaching, the lesson (less on it), you’ll stop watering the weeds and put everything you’ve got on love, your life, the people in it and the miracles that bloom, inside and out, allowing you to grow like the roses all around you, wherever you go.

We’re here and then we’re not.  There is nowhere to go.  No place to get to.  No destination that isn’t already known.  The body suit has an expiration date.  They all do.  And before us are choices.  When you understand, stand under, the knowledge, the ledge of knowing, you see it.  Time is short, life precious, every moment the possibility for awakening.  Wake up.  Choose a path with heart.

Because I am God, and so are you, I have something to tell you, bequeath to you, and because you are God and so am I, you already know that what I am telling you is the sacred truth. You are God. You are Love. You are the universe and every experience, conscious and unconscious, seen, unseen, perfect ray of magnificent expression of self, God, me, you, there is. Be still and know that you are, I am, we are, God.

The question is the answer.  When mind asks a question it will always find evidence for what it is seeking.  So to change that which you are finding, to find something new, you will need to be asking for something new.  You will want to be watching, noticing, what you are asking.  If you are asking if there is another way, a different solution, a new thought, a new means to envision what you are experiencing, creating, striving to accomplish, then your mind, (search engine), will be looking beyond itself to bring back the evidence you seek.  When you ask the question from the future you, ‘Is there another way?’ you are expanding the question, (the path you choose) and therefore the answer (the world you create).  Change the question, change the world.

How You Win

The MORE LOVE Club

photo credit: swanksalot via photopin ccThis is it. Your life. Everything depends on it. Everything. The way you play, play by the rules. Or not. The choices you make, don’t make, make again. You can pass go, get out of jail free, anything you want, but you play this game as if your life depends on it. It does. It depends on how you play. Because if you are wanting to get the most out of it, you’ll be needing to put the most into it. So play, play with every fibre of your being, with indelible grace and unparalleled intention, deep passion, humor, and as many mistakes as possible. And love. Especially love. That’s how you win, you see. Love.

The Miracle of You

Ordinary miracles; dew on the grass, sun, tide, wheat stalks swaying, frogs near a stream, a thicket filled with fireflies, coyotes howling at the moon, a fat crow eyeing me from the telephone wire, small seedlings, nesting in a cup, everything it needs inside the hull. Your seed is already planted, inside, evident in the everyday miracle of you.

Looking

What if you asked, not what you are looking for, but what is doing the looking? What if you looked at the filter, Who Am I, persona, that which we identify as self? What if instead of looking for something, someone, out there, you sought for that which is within? And in seeing, believing (be living), you understand (stand under) the knowledge (ledge of knowing from which you are about to jump) and surrender, truly surrender into looking at not only what you are looking at, but who, or what is doing the looking?

As you find yourself facing the door, humbled by tremendous feeling, we’ll call the door ‘gratitude’, and the room ‘contentment’, ‘sense of purpose’, ‘self-worth’, ‘honor’, ‘respect’, ‘integrity’, whatever leads you to a deep feeling of beingness, the only key, and this is important to note, the only key to unlock the door is Willingness. Willingness is the key that unlocks all the doors. All of them.

Pre-Birth

The MORE LOVE Club

Inside the wind is a stillness, like inside the breath, the moment after the exhale, before the inhale, there is no air, no breath, the body is not, the soul is not, only cessation, before being, pre-birth when spirit begins anew and life is reborn.  In that space, between no thing and all thing, being and not, is totality.  Is love.

Send Rainbows

If you’re really playing the game, Mind will hide Mind Thought by dumping the chemistry of feeling, around the back, soundlessly, noiselessly issuing Mind Thought, so that the fog rolls in. And even though Mind Thought is silent, you feel yourself sinking. All around you the humor (sarcasm: the ripping of flesh) feels like pain. You’re sensitive. You are. Very sensitive. That’s a good thing. Feel the energy of that. The possibility of being raw, open, available to the sensate and the sweetness, pure vibration, so-good-you-get-high-feeling when you commit to it, beyond Mind, beyond opinion and judgment. Push deep inside, where it’s safe, vulnerable or not, squarely inside your heart, wrap yourself with the cloak of acceptance, protect against the cultural (cult you are all) and from there, right from there, Send Rainbows.

When you ask, listen, truly lean in and hear other, hold the space, allow the telling of another’s experiential, give the gift of self, then you are being a Reliable Witness. Reliable can only happen within the realization (real eyes nation) of awareness that in the release of mind, ego, need for outcome (which presupposes manipulation; the ‘get him to’) you become able to remain still, quiet enough for Witness to observe and in that stillness, not only usher in the essence, the soul, the sweet spirit of other, but create charm, that such a meeting would endure (become Reliable) and create itself again and again. In perpetrating Reliable Witness with intent, you change, morph, from this cultural, (cult you are all) to the ultimate and indelible spiritual (spirit you are all).

In death, as in love, souls meet, move, dance to the rhythm, the motion of the universe, holding in the persistent thrill of acknowledging the essence of spirit intertwined, through the tunnel, lifting the veil and seeing, recognizing each other, know the self back, soul to soul.  The moment past, as if the music stops, we blink, forget to remember who we are and ignorant of charm, relinquish light, yet in that moment, the ephemeral, evanescence of life, the possibility for our souls to see and hear other exists.  Always.  All ways.  What if today, you spoke it?  What if you awakened to the opportunity and said to those you love (and as you speak it, that becomes everyone), ‘I see you.  I hear you.  I love you.’?

In death, as in life, there is no barrier, save what man creates.  For as in all things, there is the ultimate challenge, which holds the possibility, the opportunity for re-birth.  In all things, including and most importantly death, the seeds of life are always, all ways present.  Life is a never-ending cycle of creation, maintenance and destruction, leading again to creation.  Death and birth, since man marked time and before, have been holding hands.  It is only our blindness, our fear that prevents us seeing what lies beyond.  Death therefore, is the ultimate transcendence, allowing us in our humanness, eyes open, to see past the veil and witness proof that new adventure awaits in the great, great yonder, by and by.

In the ‘I don’t know’

Beach at St. Raphael, Marseilles, France Plage Napolean, South of France

Sitting in ‘I don’t know’ observing from the nothingness, no-thing-ness of what we call ‘charm’ or ‘source’, as the brain fires and the synaptic impulse issues thought form, mind thought, responding to each wave of circuitry with ‘I don’t know’, eventually humbles the soul, stops the think, the thought, mind thought, mind fart, poo gas, from seeing itself as real, allowing you to realize (real eyes) from the space of the unknown, (which is true knowing), that holding space (not knowing), for self and other, is the ultimate humbleness and immaculate life form of the reliable witness. From there, and only from there, from the ‘I don’t know’ comes true knowing. In the absence of need, attachment to outcome, to knowing any-thing, is desire, the desire to sire, birth devastatingly pure knowing, because it is from the unknown, (beyond mind, beyond ego, and therefore source)…

Fully Accept the Dark

photo credit: David Kingham via photopin ccTotality in its great wisdom is infinitely expanding. This is due to the black matter existing between the stars, planets and galaxies. Our very solar system, embraces the dark in order to expand. If we are life on this planet, aligned with the environment that surrounds us, it follows that we too, (regarding less our theories, ideas, opinions and judgments), must fully accept the dark, the shadow side in order to achieve greater light and expansion. For it is only in contrast to the deep, deep darkness, the black matter within our constellations, that the light might shine, continuing to reach ever further in it’s awareness and expansion of self.

Examine the Truth

The MORE LOVE Club

If I am to transcend this now, I must investigate, understand, and know this now to the fullest extent of my being. Transcendence is not ignorance, unawareness, or denial of this present awareness. It is the use of this present level of now as foundational, that in fully accepting it, I might rise to the next level of deeper investigation and understanding. True transcendence is the ability to lift oneself and others from ignorance and unawareness by perceiving historically what has been, and moving together toward what can be. Firmly rooted in what is presently now, we rise to the level of what can be, made manifest by our willingness to unflinchingly examine the truth.

The Nose of a True Warrior

Baby elephants are like people, they flap their ears when they are afraid, hoping their enemy will see them as a formidable challenge, and flee. But we, like animals have instinct, and given the primal urge to survive, protect territory, must observe, get to know our prey’s habits, noting that the ears flapping is not a strength but weakness, revealed. The baby elephant doesn’t flap it’s ears because it is large, it flaps because it is afraid it is small. The smell of fear in the air, in the nose of a true warrior, means there is no challenge, except F.E.A.R., (false evidence appearing real). So when your friends, loved ones, important others are flapping, know in the primal, emotional, physical and metaphysical world, you have encountered one who is vulnerable, one who is afraid and because you are a metaphysical warrior, proceed with…

The Virus of Belief

You know it as the virus, digging into the cell wall of your being with spikes. And just like those that appear on the corona, the virus of belief also pokes holes in our interior wall of being and initiates control. The intention to invade the cell, and replicate, ensures a hostile takeover of belief. Invading the cell that is you, with a mind thought, that triggers a download of feeling, that urges behavior, supported by a system of beliefs, the virus of the mind takes over. It takes over the entire organism that is you, your life, your hopes, your dreams, your entire life experience, by invading, initiating control, and replicating. As it does so, normal cell function breaks down. Busy attending to the damage incurred, your system becomes hostile. Each cell fends off potential threat by issuing reactivity to shame, guilt, and self-loathing in you and in others. Just like a real virus, the virus of the mind is in the air we breathe. Expressed in an exhalation of thought, the inflection of a news article, a media meme, or an angry confrontation, the virus of belief is extreme and contagious. The greater the viral load the greater the infection, making it impossible to examine.  For as the virus of the mind invades, the desire for the belief to be true overwhelms. Yet as we are overwhelmed, we must examine our beliefs. We must examine the power they have over our lives, because beliefs can be irrelevant. Beliefs can be untrue. And most importantly, some beliefs can put you in harms way.

So, now, when the virus is infecting those most powerful, look for its markers. Watch for the waning vibrancy of your dreams, and the despotic urgency of blame shifting, smoke-screening, shaming, gas lighting and the use of ad hominem attacks. Now when you use, or experience blame shifting, smoke-screening, shaming, gas lighting, or ad hominem attacks, know you are in the presence of the virus of the mind. Know that these are the invasive tools of the virus of belief, evident in the most powerful and the less privileged, too. These are the tools the virus of belief uses to cause the system to attack itself and others. Beginning with just one belief unexamined, one blame shift, smoke screen, shaming, gas lighting, or ad hominem attack issued, just one corona spike of unexamined belief can dig in, invade, initiate control, and replicate until your system begins to attack itself and you surrender.  That is when you know you need vital support. That is when you know you need tools for life. Don’t succumb to the virus of the mind. Don’t let the virus of belief blind you to the truth, or put you in harm’s way. Remember the desire for the belief to be true, obscures imperfection.  So be vigilant. Be kind. Examine your beliefs. Be courageous. Be honest. Most of all, be loving to yourself and others. The life you save may be your own.

The Lens of Disbelief

The MORE LOVE Club

If a belief is to be resilient, it will need adaptability, which develops through the lens of disbelief.  The potential ‘Ah Ha’ moment.  A working system, (one that works for you), must have the ability to disprove, approve and improve itself, which happens in the disbelieving of itself.  By disbelieving (standing in the unknown, between this belief and no belief) the old belief is examined, disproved, improved (becoming new belief), approved and given birth, that your running systems, (beliefs: be lives), are not running you, but you are running them.  A working (something that works for you) belief system, (be life system) must include the willingness to disbelieve, be the ‘Ah Ha’ moment, the willingness to change, be relevant, do whatever it takes to survive.  That your belief may be that much deeper, you must risk no belief, thereby gaining renewed belief…

Who You Really Are

Embrace that which is wanting to save your life.

We are wanting to mitigate fear. In this time, there is much fear and we are wanting to suppress it, defy it, and/or ignore it. Some of us are defiant, angry, and filled with outrage. Others of us have stuck our heads deep into the sand. To appear invulnerable to ourselves and others, we distract, indulge, and/or argue to disallow and deflect our fear. Yet, if we are denying the fear, we cannot investigate it. If we are suppressing the fear, ignoring it, or needing to subdue it like an enemy, we cannot see its value. Although uncomfortable, fear is data. Fear is data that compels our human behavior. If we examine to see if it is derived from the cultural False Evidence Appearing Real F.E.A.R., or the primal imperative of Fuck Everything And Run F.E.A.R. we will have knowledge of how to proceed. The practice is to know the fear, understand the fear, become familiar with the fear and clarify the source of the fear. If our lives are in danger due to a perceivable, knowable threat, or a less tangible threat, if we are to act appropriately, we must make a risk assessment. To do this one must de-stress the physical and emotional body, including the mind, to release the markers of fear from the physical, emotional, and mental body that we might become clear. When we accept the fear it becomes manageable through meditation, tapping, exercise, and other practical methods. Regular practice of de-exciting the system, allows truthful examination. Is this fear relevant? Is this fear true? What is the source of this fear? Remember, fear is not the enemy. Fear is within us to keep us safe. It is our system’s warning that something is wrong. There are times that it can be imperative to fright, or fight, or take flight. There are times that it can be imperative to mitigate the fear, that we might perceive the evidence, and evaluate the warning before we fright, fight, or take flight. So, beware of the rush to judgment. Because we are wanting to suppress the fear, beware of the desire for the evidence to infer that there is no need to fear. Beware too, of judgmental anger in yourself and others, as it is one of the most beloved tools we cultural animals use to cover our fear. Beware of defiance, ignorance, distraction, indulgence, and overall deflection. Watch for the need to deny the fear. And when you see it, instead of pushing it from you, embrace that which is wanting to save your life. Say, ‘This fear is my fear. It is trying to tell me something. Let me manage this feeling, that I might respond with awareness.’ Then, bless your emotional and mental body in loving commitment to pause, and rest, and take good care of yourself. Treat for the fear using safe, loving, and respectful, practices. In this way, you will assuage your thinking, your feelings, and your physical body, to release tension and fear that you might explore the truth and take right and effective action. In this time of tremendous upheaval and change, be kind, be patient, be loving toward others, and especially yourself. Take good care. Feel the fear and breathe. Breathe.

You are the World

In this country we love our autonomy. We enjoy the personal freedom of self-governance. We feel strongly about our right to make choices of our own volition. We defend our civil liberties and feel it is our prerogative to behave, feel, and think as we do. It could be said that we love our autonomy to the degree that it has become entitlement. We feel entitled to behave and think as we do regardless of the overall result. Yet self-governance in it’s purest form implies an understanding of the consequences of our actions for ourselves, and for others. Implicit in the tenants of self-governance is our interconnectivity and dependence within our community, our country, and now most certainly, our world. Indeed, in this now, it is imperative that as we self-govern our behaviors, our emotions, and our thinking, we maintain a balance between serving ourselves and serving others. For, pure self-governing, pure autonomy is only as good as the intention it serves. During this crucial time, it becomes important to ascertain our intention. Is our autonomy pure? Is it balanced? Are we accountable? Do we know that what we do, feel, and think affects the totality of the self and others physically, emotionally and spiritually? During this time of pandemic challenge, are we vested in the realm of the divine global cooperative enterprise that has been thrust upon us? Are we responsible, (able to respond), to the challenge and privilege of our autonomy? For as an autonomous, self-governed, interconnected, and responsible being, you are the greatest gift you offer. As you are one, you are all. What you do, feel, and think affects the world.  Now more than ever, you are the world.  You are the hope and you are the outcome.

Mind issues mind thought, which is trigger. Sometimes trigger comes from a belief system or something larger like a running system but all mind thought triggers a download of chemistry, which pours throughout your cellular makeup, producing a reaction, (ie: feeling good, or feeling bad). To realize, (real eyes) that mind is issuing mind thought, mind fart, poo gas, that mind is separate from you, that it is in fact a device, a mind, which is simply issuing mind thought, (not some empirical data, or truth, but mind fart!, poo gas!!), is the beginning of recognizing, re-cognizing that you have a choice. You, yes you, can choose the mind thought, mind fart, poo gas, which serves. And only those that serve. You do not, do not, do not, ever again, need to accept a thought that is less than, unworthy of…

Examine the Truth

If I am to transcend this now, I must investigate, understand, and know this now to the fullest extent of my being. Transcendence is not ignorance, unawareness, or denial of this present awareness. It is the use of this present level of now as foundational, that in fully accepting it, I might rise to the next level of deeper investigation and understanding. True transcendence is the ability to lift oneself and others from ignorance and unawareness by perceiving historically what has been, and moving together toward what can be. Firmly rooted in what is presently now, we rise to the level of what can be, made manifest by our willingness to unflinchingly examine the truth.

From the beginning of March I knew something was wrong. I had the flu. I had a slight fever, a cough, and a sore throat. By March 9th I told friends that I was being cautious. I cancelled classes. I kept an eye on the news. I slept a lot. I could not, and have not been able to write. I don’t seem to have the energy to think critically. This virus has zapped my energy. It has depressed me physically, emotionally and spiritually a little too. There have been days that I felt so weak, I was unable to move one foot in front of the other. There were days when my chest felt very heavy and my rib cage felt very constricted. There were days when I was really scared that I might have to go to a hospital. My greatest fear was that if I went to the hospital, I would never come back. At my son’s direction, I called a tele doc and got a prescription, for cough medicine and an inhaler. Despite my symptoms, I was not allowed to test for the virus because I could not verify that I had been exposed. Thankfully, the heaviness in my chest subsided a bit. My rib cage stopped feeling so tight with every breath. Still whenever I stood from a seated position, I would become so dizzy I felt I might fall. Finally, almost a month after I first felt ill, I qualified for testing. At the testing site, I sat in the car with my husband. With masks on, he waited with me in line so I could do the oral swab. Now we are waiting again. After a week, I have no results. I continue to quarantine as this virus continues to alter my life and the lives of those around me. I don’t care so much about the quarantine. I love the blue sky, the birds chirping and the sounds and smells of a cleaner, brighter Los Angeles. Some days it has been nice just to sit in the backyard and look at the beautiful clouds overhead. I have a great respect for the life force. I have a great respect for this virus. I want to live. So does the virus. Indeed, after 6 weeks there are still days that I feel heaviness in my chest. There are still days that I feel tightness in my ribcage when I breathe. Today I am tired. I have a sore throat, the telltale dry cough, and dizziness whenever I stand. Yet, as I write this the sound of sirens whistle through my neighborhood as a constant reminder, that I am one of the lucky ones. I am definitely one of the lucky ones. I have a home, a loving husband, and an incredible body that has gently fought to bring me back to good health. Now, especially now that I am relatively well, and getting my strength back, my social responsibility is clear. My case is mild, still this has been a long journey and I do not wish this on anyone. I must do everything in my power not to pass this along. I will not be the bullet that rips through someone else’s life. And while this experience for many of us has been about fear, for me it has also been about love. I love and appreciate so much about my life, about my husband, my friends, my family and the people in my community. I love and appreciate all of you, and I truly want to be of service. So, I will continue to quarantine. I will continue to wash my hands. I will continue to go out only once every two weeks to buy groceries. And when I must go out, I will wear a mask in public and use social distancing. I will do this for as long as it takes because I want you to know that I love you. I want you to know that I appreciate the blessing of this life and the blessing of you in this life with me. Be safe out there. Please take good care. I love you, Adrienne

The Virus. The Belief.

Can you identify your beliefs and the beliefs of others? Do the beliefs serve? The virus has a belief. Is the belief aligned with reality, or is it aligned with a concept, or construct, or a body of beliefs? The virus has a belief. If you can identify the belief, if you can assess if it serves or if it does not serve, if you know what the virus believes, then you have clarity. Then you are using belief instead of the belief using you. The virus has a belief. Believe. Do this with your heart. Do this with your head below your heart. Do this with total total awareness. This is what it means to live as a Warrior of Love and Miracle.

Can You Stand?

What would happen if you held space in your heart, in your life, in your spirit, soul, for the intelligence, the natural intelligence that is the knowing, deep in being, which is connected to source, to love? Because culture, (cult you are) will rail against you, threaten, shame and speak from lower energy to shut you down. And when they do, can you stand, arms out, continuing to hold space? And if you could, even for one moment, energetically bare witness, what would happen? What if you held space for life, heart, going beyond the mind, the paradigm, construct, present meme, to risk self fully, be of service, establishing fierce presence and unflagging commitment to dream? What if you lived like that?

Sarcasm like violence, like war, is a cruel master.  The ripping of flesh, it cuts both ways.  Be careful.  Stay away from the tiniest quip, flip remark, lest you hurt yourself and others.  Be kind.  Be respectful.  Hold onto your sensitivity, your awareness that life is precious.  This is your heart.  Take care, allow others and yourself to dream and bless it all a thousand times.

The Quantum Physics Kingpin of our Metaphysical Time

Each of us whole beings, our wholeness comprised of individual, discreet, yet not separate, but interrelated units, cells, creating, nerve, brain, body, spirit, person is systemic.  And further as we gather together as bodies, persons, spiritual beings, we create an even larger systemic, covering the earth and extending, due to our crystalline nature, an organized whole which we call the Kosmos.  Still our egos, our reliance on self as persistent as it is, as real as it may seem is not only imaginary but complete folly.  We are not alone, nor are we autonomous, far from it, as causal beings, we are only relevant when we engage in our wholeness, which is the interaction with other, ourselves and our planet.  Our ability to transcend and inform ourselves based on the health of our universe, seeing itself back as an indication and the necessity for change…

The Universe Conspires

When you make a commitment and you show up, you are signaling the universe. Totality is looking for men and women of their word. So when this theatre needs to be built or that flock of birds nesting ground needs saving, it knows who to call. When you are able to respond, be responsible, when you show up, so does your life. The universe conspires to make things happen, because it knows you. It knows you will respond. That’s how dreams come true. One commitment after another.
