A day

by Administrator on June 14, 2020

What’s a day?

What we call the sunrise; new beginning. The high noon and afternoon: sustaining preserving life. What we call the  sunset; ending. The night sky; magical.

It happens everyday.

What it teaches me:

  • Birth
  • Life- ongoing with no meaning but what’s given. There’s always the sun, sometimes the sky is blue, sometimes it’s not, sometimes clouds, sometimes weather.
  • Death

Birth and death are opposites, not life and death. Life is Life. Love is Love and what we make of it, is our own dream, our own movie.  And as opposites, birth is death to something, death is birth to something. All the fuss in between.

Bear Love

by Administrator on May 8, 2020

A magical story

I have been saying lately that my intention… is to be intentional! LOL! And today I chose to create creating! LOL

As you read this story you’ll see how perfect the prior sentence is.

I must start by saying my obsession with bears has peaked. In my heart I know they are absolutely sweet. I often see juvenile bears where I live. I believe this age to be equivalent to an 8 year old human. An age I adore. Not too long ago I dreamt of one walking by me in the front of my building. As it passed I thought, I really want to finally hug it. It turned around encircled me, stood up and hugged me. We kinda played pawsies then it got down and left. Amazing.

Ananda Ashram is now live in the morning for fire ceremony, which I love and miss! After meditating we end in chants. We repeat maha-mrtyunjaya mantra. Or Tryambakam. Called the death conquering mantra. While chanting it, if there is anyone needing healing we envision them. This morning I finished visualizing thinking of bears and zoo animals. I opened my eyes and a bear was outside my window looking in. Then went on its way. I was covered in goosebumps. Total BEAR Shaktipat. I was soo excited and Bean also picked up on the energy. I jumped up and down and watched it. Magic! This is the same bear that passed by today:

In this profound time

  • like sadguru (Isha in an interview with Brian Rose) said, just stay alive. i like that as I don’t want to miss this time
  • have a physical and spiritual hygiene practice- if you need help with this one contact me- it’s my wheelhouse
  • live intentionally and authentically
  • consider impact of words and thoughts
  • consider impact relating to animals, all of nature and planet
  • express self like never before
  • talk a stand, so you stop falling for just anything
  • even as things let up, don’t let up on the above
