UPDATES: April 7th, Circle of Light class and meditation, 1:00 PM in Naperville, IL
April 19th, Sacred Breath Workshop, 7:00 PM in Downers Grove, IL
NEW! I am writing my first novel, The Riddle of Suffering! It will be an eye-opener~
NEW! My good friend, Jim Loftus, who is now offering a brand new web site: www.AstroAlmanack.com similar to what Guy Spiro used to offer in the Monthly Aspectarian. Check it out. Excellent!
This was the old wish for the aspirant on the path. It means that through constant striving toward the Light we might transmute the heavy cross of matter (earthly self and issues) into the fragrant Rose of the spiritual life. This is known by the awakened ones as the Earth initiation. The soul is ready to demonstrate more fully the Light of God in his/her actions on earth. It is one thing to intellectually understand and quite another to achieve inner realization and actually put it into action.
Wouldn't it be amazing if more of us would make a deeper commitment this Easter to live the Christ spirit? We can go direct to the heart of Christ. We have the power to do that. Every time you allow yourself to be filled with gratitude, compassion and live a higher form of love toward others, you are gaining a greater mastery over the ego and body.
Jesus came as a promise to what lies within us. Underneath the package we are wearing is the all-pervading spirit of love. Accept your daily karma. It is the bread which feeds your soul.
Jesus offered us His spirit, the essence of divine love. Drink from the cup he offered and your heart will be filled with both understanding and love. Love is the fulfilling of the law. Through love we are made whole.
In hope and harmony,

- Are you ready to dethrone the anthropomorphic god of the Bible who threatens, instills fear, judgment and the opposite of boundless universal loving-kindness?
- Are you ready to really think and look seriously at a rational, tolerant way of living that you can actually test and verify through personal experience?
- Can you become an independent thinker?
Why fight it?
What we need is right guidance, right knowledge and right understanding.
- How many people have brought their mind to a state of one-pointedness?
- How many of us view life and objects from an unconditioned point of view?
- Wouldn’t’ you prefer to touch on the summits of your former achievements, be unconditioned and timeless?
To be successful, we must accept responsibility for the conditions or situations we find ourselves in today and at any time. It is possible to attain an understanding of things as they really are and become fully awakened. To depend on oneself is positive. We were told, ‘What I have achieved, you, too, can accomplish.’ As long as we ignore this statement of truth, the longer we suffer. Self-complacency increases ignorance. Liberation, heaven on earth and being fully aware does not come into existence automatically.

We are both the seeker and the sought from the very beginning, though we may not know it. Isn't this sad? Every day we recognize beauty and goodness in others but, we rarely accept it in ourselves.
We all have the Christ or Buddha Nature within. It cannot be sought outside of ourselves. Why? People fail to grasp the truth of their being because they cling to deluded thoughts and attachments. Conditioning separates us from the truth of our real identity.
We live with this marvelous hidden Nature every day but do not recognize it even when it is right in front of our eyes. There are many names for the inner Nature: wakefulness, mind ground, Nirvana, unchanging, reward body, spirit, essence, enlightenment, God, radiant Light, spirit and endless other names.
We all have this Nature. The inner Nature is equal in all. The difference is in our conscious awareness of Its presence and power. A determining factor is also whether we accept and use it. Externally,on the human level, there are huge differences between the consciousness of people. In the perspective of the higher wisdom, we have eternal equality and must awaken to use it.
Understanding our true spiritual identity from the higher wisdom perspective, we are all 'heavenly beings'. There is nothing to cultivate. There is no need to seek from others. The difference between spiritual ignorance and awakened understanding though is to actually achieve awakened thought. We must understand our hidden Nature and accept and live it.
One of the greatest secrets to awakened Mind is not to be attached. Humanity is bewildered and collectively spiritually ignorant. People continue to suffer because their true Nature is obscured by delusion. All of us need to clear the dust off the mirror.
The 3rd Friday of each month, a Sacred Breath Healing Workshop is held in Downers Grove, IL at the Sohmar Massage School at 7:00 pm. The purpose of the healing workshops are to help you break through the delusion of false conditioning and consciously realize the truth of who YOU are! During our time together, you actually feel the truth of your inner Nature~
