Here are the most current Unlearning Insights:

January 21

Paths Up the Mountain

There are infinite paths
up the Mountain of Truth.

 

The key is devoting to one
which works for you,
while celebrating
that each person
is on one
that is perfect for them.

January 20

A simple smile

when it flows from
a genuine heart,
can be a precious gift
which can melt
years of self-condemnation.

January 19

Can You Default to This?

When something does not happen
when you think it should,
try instantly celebrating
that Something
bigger than your mind
is ordering the universe
perfectly.

January 18

Chillax

If you really knew
the benevolence
of the intelligent Power
that is your very
Source and Sustenance
throughout eternity,
the most intuitive response
to any concerning situation would be
to relax and chill.

January 17

Fight or Embrace?

Whether you
fight or embrace
what arises in consciousness
depends upon
if your mental model is
dualistic or non-dual.

 

Playing judge
creates a battle.
Abiding in awareness
reveals peace.

January 16

At some point

we shift
from getting it done,
to letting Grace
do us.

 

This will make no sense,
until it does.

 

Then there is no going back.
(Ask the butterfly.)

January 15

Slowing Down

Until I am willing
to pause and breathe,
and feel this moment,
I will never find myself.

 

If I don’t find myself
I will never find you.
I will never let you find me.
And, we will never find us.

 

January 14

The River of Non-duality

When your heart
breathes in the moment,
without attachment
to needing it to leave or stay,
you make room
to experience the cascade of Grace.

 

Your conditioned mind
may try to hang on to the known,
but your soul
has the bigger picture
as it is nurtured by
the flowing eternal Spring.

 

Your body will be washed clean,
and your mind will discover
a transforming reservoir of Stillness.

January 13

One Thing

If I could remember this one thing,
I think I would be home free.

 

I’m not in charge of my life,
or anyone else’s.

 

Life knows
what She is doing.
Every moment.

January 12

The inner critic

is a conditional, impersonal program
running in your mind.

 

It is based in you
having to earn a sense of self-worth
by fulfilling the conditions
it says are viable.

 

Who put it in charge of you?

 

One hundred percent of its power
is to offer you its provisional promise.
It has no power to enforce itself
or make itself true.

 

You don’t need to try to get rid of it.
You just need to recognize it
as misguided counsel.

 

Thank it for sharing
and move right on.

 

The wholeness and beauty
of your Being
are never tainted
by its fallacious pleading.

Blaming

If I feel the need to blame you
for how I am feeling,
it is because
I have no more room inside
to blame myself.

 

The answer is not more blame
for anyone.

 

It is to open my heart
to finding the part of me
that wants to blame,
and softly ask it:
“Why?”

January 9

Maps

There are impersonal programs running
as mental mechanisms
which we mistake as our very self.

 

This is not good or bad.
It’s just what is observable
throughout human experience.

 

When we understand them
we start to have a map,
and thus get lost
less frequently.

 

Maps,
and observing the immediate horizon,
can also save
personal and relational shipwrecks.

 

January 8

One Connection

The only place
I can really meet another
is in the shared silence
of our common Soul.

As I learn to go
into this spaceless,
timeless non-place,
I will find connection
to all forms of being.

January 7

Navigating Life

Life is not here
for us to figure out.

 

It is here
for us to receive
and be guided by.

 

We also don’t get
to figure out
how to do this.

 

We are invited to yield
into the Pasture of Stillness,
as She reveals Herself,
as the DNA of our soul.

January 6

What do these have in common?

a doorway
a window
a bottle
a mind
a flower
a fist
a play
a body
a book
a heart
a border

 

They each offer you
a very different experience
depending upon if they are
closed or open.

 

When someone interacts with you,
What is closed?
What is open?

January 5

Love’s Eternal University

When you leave high school
and go away to college,
people understand that
even though they may not see you for a while,
you are continuing your educational journey
in a different form.

 

When someone “graduates”
from life as we know it on earth,
they too, go to a new place
to continue to learn more about Life,
in a different form.

 

Essence, or the soul’s identity doesn’t change.
All form is forever changing.
It’s designed to.
That’s why we are not are form.
We remain.
Form transitions.

 

The point of Love’s University
is not to graduate.
That’s not possible.

 

It’s to use the forms we are given
to unlearn that which we are not,
and rediscover and live into
that which we eternally are.
In this we are forever guided by Grace. 

January 4

All Within

When stimulated from outside,
it can only trigger,
what is already resident inside.

 

Our experience is
how we filter life
through our internal
lenses.

 

If I think I need
something from the outside
to fulfill me,
this is not accurate.
I take the stimulus
and make it mean whatever I want.
I choose my internal environment.

 

This may not feel easy,
given our conditioning.
But, this being true,
why not just choose to live
in an internal environment
of love and embodied presence,
independent of the stimulus?

January 3

Your Why

What is your deepest intention
for living on this planet at this time?

 

How is this intention
informing your daily decisions?

 

Are you living consistently
within this intention?

 

If not, what are you waiting for?

 

What may be distracting you
from living more fully
from this sacred space?

January 2

An Invitation to Go Beyond

In listening deeply to Grace today,
here’s what She told me:

 

“You have seen yourself
as being here
to release
that which is not real and true
in yourself and others and life.

 

“It’s now time for Chapter Two.

 

“Can you release everything,
and see what remains?

 

“I am leading you on this path.”

January 1, 2020

One Intention

What if you used
every one
of your spiritual practices
as a way of opening to Grace?

 

Separation would lose its grasp
on your life and relationships.
