I found my divine lover and you can too.
Are you wondering if divine love is real? And if so, can you attract it? To answer that question, we have to understand that, while relationships operate in the material world, they originate in, and are connected with, a higher reality of sacredness. We have to understand that we don’t search for and find “the one” who fulfills our list of preferences. Instead, we, ourselves, become the divine lover. And that is what attracts other divine lovers.
Now, it has to be said because it does not go without saying, this…
I wrote this poem to capture the experience of the synesthetic oneness that accompanies the awareness that the phenomenal world arises from the immaterial “ground of all being.”
The light of the universe flows through your spirit hands like cupped, sun-dappled water. It shapes your gaze and from your eyes rides back on neuron waves toward hemispheric fields of binal wonder.
Millisecond upon millisecond your divine gaze converts the infinite into representations as fragrant as, say, an alpine meadow heavy with the blossoms of springtime. Bees visit here. Goats chew green bushels along a high and narrow ridge. …
At 7 pm, Annabelle refuses a good-night treat. A little later, we know why — she’s sick with diarrhea. It gets so bad, the only thing coming out is blood.
Steven watches over her. I try not to freak out while I do an online search of her symptoms. It appears that Annabelle will need a battery of tests to narrow down the cause. It’s all the harder to stay calm — Covid has eaten a lot of our savings.
Focus on what’s in front of you, I tell myself. I read that the most important thing is to keep…
Looking back, I can see that, growing up in show business, my boundaries were often disrespected or ignored. Later, when I moved to the States, where being liked is culturally more important, I didn’t set boundaries because I was afraid people would dislike me if I said what I did and didn’t want.
It was such a blessing when I met my partner of seventeen years, Steven, who is skilled at setting boundaries.
Boundaries are essential for healthy and well-balanced relationships, whether with yourself or others. I learned so much from watching my husband in action. …
This question gets to the heart of the problem for the mystic who writes about the divine.
From my real-life mystical experiences and those of my mother before me, I trust that it is true that all is divine, however mysteriously.
But what If I’m deluded? I have to give you that I may be. But not because I’m wrapped in a cocoon of spiritual bypassing. I can see what’s wrong in the world; it makes my heartache. As a child of the 60s in Germany, I was terrified of global nuclear annihilation. At night before sleep, I was often…
How you can replace habits without guilt, self-abuse, or shame
“Your gentleness shall force
more than your force move us to gentleness.”
― William Shakespeare, As You Like It
Last night, I fell asleep with the thought, “Henry, remember what you wrote about how important impulse control is. Go ahead, prove that you can do it. You can leave the phone on the nightstand.” And I did. And this morning, I woke up, feeling proud because, for the first time in years, I didn’t automatically grab my phone and scroll through the news.
A HOLIDAY MESSAGE FOR 2020 FROM ME TO YOU
The Festive Season this year looks so different from what we’re used to because of Covid-19. It has cast a long shadow that deepened as the year went on, and that will extend far into 2021.
For those who are by themselves in their place, it’s especially hard. Because of safety measures, there’s not even the possibility of escape into the company of strangers at a bar or restaurant or mall.
If that’s you, my heart flies to yours, and I’m sending you Reiki healing and divine loving feeling.
One cruel moment in episode #1 and I couldn’t watch anymore
The clip lasts only for a few seconds but it delivers a harsh jolt in an otherwise jovial show. A pale pink and sinewy octopus is seen on a metal surface desperately trying to get away. Moments before, the host of Amazon’s Our Man in Japan, James May, describes the extraordinary intelligence of this species. What you hear elicits a sense of awe and wonder. And then, the next thing you know, there’s the shot of one of those amazing creatures trying to escape being “processed.” It’s a real…
