Awakening From A Long Sleep, A Personal Note

I began my inner journey about 40 years ago. In fact I remember the exact moment when my spirit began to awaken.

After completing my education degree I was looking at different possibilities for my life, I happened upon a class offered at the local college. Without hesitation I signed up for it as if guided from within.

The class was about the human potential and it was filled with the most amazing inspiration. I felt so alive. I knew I was in the right place.

Today that buzz of aliveness is stronger than ever. I have continued to be excited and passionate about the unlimited possibilities we all have.

I suspect many of you have a deep caring for humanity and what is possible or you wouldn’t be here reading my posts. These sensations of aliveness within us are just the tip of the iceberg.

In the last few weeks a shift has taken place. Not the kind that passes through briefly but the kind that stays. I have arrived. Not at an ending point but through the doorway and into a most expansive landscape of presence. 

As I write this, the words I put before you can only point at what I’m experiencing. They fall very short of how vast this shift is.

For many years I have walked two parallel paths. One, a path called being human, the other, as a spiritual being. The human part has been at times a comedy of errors and humbling experiences. All of this, it is said, helped me grow. 

Over the last few years I have spent much more time walking the spiritual side of the road. I have to admit, with a real mixed bag of results. Or at least I thought so.

I would have my precious moments when all the story or drama fell away and I experienced the most exquisite glimpses of pure joy, unconditional love, deep inner peace and a knowing oneness with all of life. These moments vibrated through me sometimes for just a few minutes or even for a few days.

In the past few weeks I have crossed over from doing human to being spiritual. Now things are very different - and not so.

Different because I stand in this space of such vastness that awe is what I notice. Now also I feel as if I have become a river of love and joy, and an abiding peace that stretches out into the stars.

My sense of personality is being revised by what I am now aware of as I try to figure out how to interact with all these new experiences.  I’m sure there will be an extended period of time needed to integrate all that has shifted and will continue to shift.

I feel a bit exposed from this sharing. At the same time any of my past concerns about what people will think have mostly gone silent.

I write all of this for the purpose of encouraging you to remember there are no limits to how much light, love, joy, peace, and healing is available to you. YES YOU!!!

In the flow of my soul is such a wonderful place to be. I invite you to join me. It’s much simpler than I thought. All it takes is listening quietly and deeply.

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have about this process of moving toward a greater expression of your spiritual nature.
