We are ALL in this together, as ONE

Ultimately, awakening is about personal empowerment and complete embodiment.  That's all.  And wow did it take me deep work to understand what that means! Awakening is about doing the work to look deep within you to find what calls to your soul.  And then fully coming into your body to listen to that calling and live from that space.

It can be really simple, although few of us feel we have the tools. We all have enough tools to begin.  I promise new tools will appear along the path.

I feel it is easy to feel overwhelmed by all the information out there.  Everyone seems to have an answer or theory.  Awakening is not about believing another person's views, it is about  examining your own experiences and creating your own reality. There are many guides that fit you out there waiting for you, once you ask.

Look at the life you have created thus far and ask: Does my current life align with my core joy? If not, then this is your life, take it on.  Don't live as you feel others want you to live.  Live as if this is really your life.  Joy is one of the powerful indicators of how well aligned your actions are with your core being.

We all feel like there is a deeper reason for being here, but too few of us create the space in our lives to explore.  Create that space; it's worth the work.

Imagine you are in a big desert and you feel hot and alone.  In front of you is a large pool with many loving and joyful people who have found it and leaped in, all of whom are playing an intriguing game and waiting for you.  You choose to ignore the pool.  You complain about feeling hot.  You complain about feeling lonely.  And you choose to walk over to the pool bar and have a drink instead.  It makes you feel better, as it temporarily quenches your thirst. That calling deep within isn't satisfied though.  You then walk over to the shopping mall.  Then you find the university with all sorts of interesting classes.  Then you decide you need more money and take on a job you dislike. You escape the job by flying over to the other desert far away, as you think that maybe that desert is better, prettier, more exciting.  And again, you start at the bar and ignore the large cool pool with many loving and joyful people who have found it and leaped in, all of whom are playing an intriguing game and waiting for you.  And again you fall into the same patterns.  And again you feel like there's something more but it must be elsewhere.  I invite you to look at your patterns.  I invite you to create space in your life to look within at what you have created as your life.  And I invite you to find the pool filled with many loving and joyful people who have found it and leaped in; all of whom are playing an intriguing game and waiting for you. The pool is always directly next to where ever you are standing and you simply need to see it.

Knowing that we all look up at the same moon always brought me comfort when I felt alone on my journey.  My awakening process and leap into that cool pool was often confusing and frightening.  I offer my experiences and time as a gift to make your journey gentler. Only you will know when you are ready for the pool and only you can leap.
