Anamchara - Living The Real Life
"Is this the real life?
This song goes on to advise, "Open your eyes and see."
There is much to see that is beautiful in this life. I am blessed. I get to share words of beauty with others. I get to share the seeing of the real life. This is the wonder of this life beyond the fantasy of "me" and "mine." I get to share the seeing beyond the limitation of ego.
I contend we "do" much of "our life." We do so much of our life that we get caught in a landslide. This is mostly the landslide of thought. We are encouraged to drive our life's energy forward. We do this by thinking about "what to do," "what to be," "what to think," "what to follow." We become a landslide of "shoulds," "must does," can't does" and "what ifs" to name a few. We tumble down the landslide of "our life."
There is a universal law. This is the law of attraction.
This law states that we attract to us the type of energy we send out into the world. We are all an energy field vibrating at different rates. The energy we attract is the energy we give out. What we give out we receive back. We attract the energy of ego or the energy of the Beloved. One is defensive and the other open. One is limited and the other unlimited. One is attractive, or even not attractive, in a fashionable sense of the word. The other is attraction itself. The other is the real life. It is the imitation of soul.
At a party this week I got to talk about soul. I talked about becoming an Anam Cara. This is the Celtic translation of the word Soul Friend - "Anam" meaning "Soul" and "Cara" meaning "Friend." I am what I term a "Soul Practitioner." I practice releasing into the beauty of Soul. A Soul friend is looking for moment-to-moment communication. This is communication with the Beloved.
One can call the Beloved by the name God, Goddess, Universal Intelligence or the Force. The name is not the thing. It is the experience of real life lived non-separately from "all that is." This is living life beyond time and beyond space. It is living life in the eternal now. It is not learned through Life Coaching. It is learned though dropping all that you think you are. You then see the diamond of your being shine forth. Essentially it is learning to become a "nobody."
This communion is a love affair.
It is a love affair with the beauty of life as an experience of non-separateness from the Divine. This communion is what I love communicating. It is beyond words. It can be hinted at but not explained. It can be glimpsed in metaphysical poetry. It is spoken off in the writing of the Mystics. It is heard in music and viewed in art. It is caught in the flow of dark hair surrounding the face of a child. It is caught in moments of vulnerability amidst thanks giving. It is glimpsed in moments of surrender between two hearts.
So this week I move into soul. I move into higher vibrations that begin to move through this body. None of these "good vibrations" are mine. I am only ever a co-creator with the Divine. I am blessed this embodiment of life as a gift of love. This love is the real life. It is the first hand life. It is not the second hand experience of living "my life."
Our day-to-day life is just a fantasy.
All the mystics tell us that this is an illusion. The ego shouts back, "Are you crazy man?" The poets reply, "Open your eyes and see." We have our eyes open but most of the time we are blind. Our labels and our judgments blind us. Heaven is entered when you drop all your judging. This has to start with dropping any judgement you have of yourself. You are to give up deciding you are "good" or "bad" and simply "be" this process of energy moving moment to moment. This is the beginning of entering the real life. This is the beginning of honouring the presence you are.
As a lady at the party I attended this week advised, "Go spend time with a child." Be with a young child for a day and you might learn to see the way they see. Theirs are the eyes of wonder until they are blinded by the construct of time and judgment. Life then becomes something experienced through filters. We then learn to see through a glass darkly.
Soul Friends are given gifts in many ways.
At this party I was given a gift of a diamond. This was the largest diamond created by the light of the sun. It is rarely seen. It is rarely captured for the eye. I have this diamond now on my altar. It is surrounded by the darkness of night. It is so bright it illuminates an ocean. Such is the power of this diamond.
It reminds me that each and everyone of us is this diamond light. One glimpse of this diamond of your heart is enough. One glimpse is enough to light the ocean of compassion in the human heart. This diamond cuts thought the illusion of separateness from the real life. This diamond that is you is the real life. All else is fantasy.
Once you see this diamond light you will laugh. This will not be at the suffering of others. It will be at how wondrously creative we have been. As beings of light we have hidden this diamond within our hearts and completely forgotten about it. It then takes a Jesus, a Buddha or a Mohammad to come and remind us that what we treasure most is already here. We are only looking in the wrong place with eyes that cannot see.
Seek and you shall find this diamond. Escape into reality. You are held in the prison of ego doing the time of "your life." You have the key. Only you will find the door is never locked and you are the jailer.
Shine on you crazy diamonds.

God Versus the Gods
Aristotle referred to happiness as the most we can achieve. Demons and gods were interchangeable in the time of Homer when people had far less institutionalized manipulation of their thoughts and soulful understandings.
Accept Life On Its Own Terms
Those living on the highest levels of life have learned to accept life on its own terms. There are some realities about life that we must accept.
Let Go Of My EgGO--Pride Cometh Before A Fall!
Years ago a commercial ran for eggo waffles. It showed two small children grabbing an eggo waffle popping out of the toaster, yelling, "Let go of my eggo!!" We didn't see what transpired between the two, yet I have to believe one of two things happened; one of the children would have given in and let go or the waffle would have been torn in to small pieces.
Improving Your Spiritual Life (for Christians)

For some of us, EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN!!! If you want to be unusual dress up as a nurse, secretary, grocery clerk or bank teller this year. Gypsy, vampires and shaman wanna-bes are everywhere already!Or you could get all Martha Stewart about it and practice the following festive rites, which find their origins in the British Isles and Europe for that "authentic" Halloween experience.
Origin of Certain Thoughts (Part II)
Continued from "Origin of Certain Thoughts, Part I"If you haven't experienced any near misses, you may have at least heard or read about them. When people describe their near misses, they say things such as "The bullet missed my heart by just a few inches," or "I was only a few feet away from the car that crashed into the crowd," or "Had I not turned around, I would have been killed.
Understanding the Gospel of Matthew and Why it Matters - Part 9
Matthew 3:4-6 John Baptizes the People4 Now John wore a garment of camel's hair and a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey.5 Then Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about the Jordan were going out to him,6 And they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.
I can truly say to this day of August, 2005, that if you call on Jesus, he will surely save your life. I'm thinking of a time when I know it for a fact that it was the Grace of God that saved me.
The Winds of Change
Humanity is entering a very critical time in its path of evolution. The winds of change began to blow over eighteen years ago at the event you call Harmonic Convergence but the only ones who felt this at first were those many call star-seeds or light workers.
You Lookin At Me?
It's human nature to point a finger when we think someone else is guilty of something but yet we don't stop to consider that we too may be guilty of the very same thing we are accusing others of. Why is it so easy to turn a blind eye and overlook our own faults and yet so easy to see these faults in someone else? For some reason, we take pleasure in judging, condemning and criticizing others.

The World Revolves Around Me
Lately I have become aware of a new truth that is formulating in my life.After years of study in New Age and New Thought a new awareness of self is emerging.
How To Change Your Attitudes
What type of person grabs your attention and motivates you? Usually it's a person who is very passionate about what he or she is doing. She's on fire and her excitement floods the room she is in.
Do You Really Want to Know the Truth?
Back in 1992, Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise co-starred in a movie entitled A Few Good Men. The high point of the film, in my view, was a classic, heated exchange between their characters, during which Kaffee (the military attorney played by Cruise) says: "I want the truth," and Col.
What kind of foolishness is astrology? You read about Sun Signs in the paper and you can see almost every sign says something ambiguous or relevant in some general way. Surely no real science or serious people ever believed such foolishness.
Ultimate Truth:The Beginning
You decide! We are often asked to make decisions. Decision is described as, the passing of judgment on an issue under consideration, the act of reaching a conclusion or making up one's mind, a conclusion or judgment reached or pronounced, hence a verdict.
We Are Not Our Personalities
As a Psychiatrist I spent most of my life training and researching effective therapies that would help my clients make changes in their personalities. The premise was that by making such a change the client would feel capable of doing or feeling things that they could not access before.
The One Who Heals
It's late. But it's usually those words that you cannot sleep without getting down that are the ones worth saying the most?these moments are few and far between- especially when one learns that it is better to listen than to speak.
