Become the sky; Inside this new love

Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You're covered with a thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quiteness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.

Start seeing everything as God
But keep it a secret
Become like a man who is awestruck
and nourished, listening to a golden nightingale
sing in a beautiful foreign language
while God nests invisibly upon it's tongue.
Hafiz, who can you tell in this world
That when a dog runs up to you
wagging it's ecstatic tail,
you bend down and whisper in it's ear
'Beloved, I am so glad that you are happy to see me,
Beloved, I am so glad, so very glad, that you have come.'

~ Hafiz

Just wait for the birth

‎"You must give birth to your images. They are the future waiting to be born. Fear not the strangeness you feel. The future must enter you long before it happens. Just wait for the birth.....for the hour of new clarity." 
- Rilke

I am about to marry my best friend, start a company, grow into a role as trusted advisor to amazing inspired people in the contexts of education, technology, and spirituality. I work with and support my best friends and loved ones. I am strong, healthy, happy, peaceful, and actively still in the eye of the storm. I feel Divine presence continually and Trust in that perfect guidance. I celebrate Life joyfully and am filled with gratitude, abundance, and bouyant generosity. I recognize the divine spark in the eyes and spirit of each person who crosses my path, and I love fiercely and confidently, allowing patience to blossom through the experience of struggle. I am growing into a role of motherhood, discovering depth of connection and groundspring of wisdom in our Divine Mother. I serve with grace. I engage in radical communication, holding space for the highest good to emerge as Grace so wills. I love with my mind and think with my heart -- Jai Guru!

I am

Happy freedom!

Today is Passover, the day Jews celebrate freedom -- may we all be free from the enslavement of limited possibilities and ignorance of God.

Today is also Good Friday, the day many Christ-followers reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus and the salvation that followed in witness of his expansive freedom and communion with God -- may the Christ Consciousness awaken in us all, may we all find eternal peace and repose in communion with our Creator.

We are free. This life is a blessing.

How shall we celebrate our freedom together tonight and in every moment?

Here's a suggestion... Let's imagine our ultimate and ideal future, and let's create it! How? Just imagine it and then allow it to naturally arise. By focusing so intently, Love becomes all we see, Divine perfection becomes all we experience, the awesome beauty of This One Long Now becomes the center of our awareness always. Recognize those blessings which in each inhale are showering upon you, which in each exhale are ripening within existence. Imagine the matrix, the Matrica, the Mother of creation, shimmering with infinite possibility, awaiting our every command-desire, with the sole intention of fulfilling it, so that we may come to recognize the only desire which does not extinguish upon arrival -- the desire to be forever in the bosom of Divinity. Allow Love to be your foundation, let Compassion be your guide. Be freeeee to just be!

Whatever you want sincerely, you will get. What you are getting now is exactly a result of what you have been wanting in the past. Now is the time, Now is the opportunity, Now is the moment to change the Gestalt. Decide to awaken into a new reality, a closer to Truth reality, the one Reality of the one Long Now. Decide to fight the good fight, to be determined to stay with Love, to be with integrity, to insist upon Beauty and Compassion, to swipe fear to the side and pursue the path of Righteousness, which is the path of Joy.

We are all saturated in Grace. Let's all wake up and smell those roses.

Meet me in Love, i'll see you here. :)

What works?

We can only see what we are prepared to see.
So let's practice seeing the blessings all around us.
We choose our own reality, our own heaven or hell.

My friend Viral Mehta likes to say, "The greater our awareness of our intentions, the greater our freedom to choose."

As we become increasingly aware of our intentions and desires, we can more consciously choose which of our tools to employ. Thus we become increasingly effective, increasingly prosperous, increasingly blissful. Thus we become increasingly effective learners of what works.

Let's spend our time here learning and implementing what works.

feeling/"dwelling" vs distraction for pain management

when a sensitive little girl sees reality and can't handle the pain, she may deal with it through distraction. as soon as she becomes a woman, she let's go of the distraction of distraction, and she learns to experience reality while dealing with the pain... she learns to deal with the pain rather than to distract so *that she may experience reality.

she feels into it! ....

truth vs. Truth

what she needs most is that you allow her to feel how she feels and support her sincerely and completely in feeling how she feels... so *that she feels totally safe and accepted to feel exactly how she feels! no distractions, just the present moment reality.

my gateway is to feel how i feel.

and furthermore, to allow myself to feel how i feel.

a real lesson, learn this

You've got to motivate, accelerate, never wait, show the way, no escape, take hold and shift shape, live a longer day, elevate, concentrate, get your focus straight, aim, orchestrate fate... ♥

consciousness and mind

so, as we consciously pay attention to moments of our life experience, we surrender those moments to our consciousness. in allowing the consciousness to be in charge, our minds don't need to get involved.

the mind has little hooks that karma gets stuck to, if we allow it in, whereas the consciousness has no such hooks and allows karma to flow freely on through.

then, to the extent that we are aware, with consciousness versus mind, the karma doesn't get stuck, and we 1) get to burn through old karma, as well as 2) not-accumulate new karma.

very win-win!

a new today

On a day
when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open
and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day.

~ Rumi

I am now officially a Doctor.
(of Information Science!)

And after my successful defense,
my chair said to me yesterday,
quoting his son in youth,
"You're a doctor now, just not the kind that helps people."


The world is that much brighter now.

Today is a new day. :)

y por eso te amo cuando te amo.

fists solid arms long
heart open gaze steady
and strong

rise up brother
take my hand
we struggle together
rise up
there is fighting still to do
and the day is long

watch the sun
his solid beaming gaze
fall out of the pain

come over
we need you now
stay steady
fists open
take my hand
we rise together
rise up

reflections on the experience of loving very very much

Tuesday, February 7, 2012


today my heart aches for you
and in so aching, my heart remembers the others too
who i have loved and lost

except that today i don't feel i've lost you
i just ache for your presence
for that laughter we've shared
that silent recognition we've known
that smile that seems to belong to us both

and in that remembering
my muscles are reliving it
re-experiencing it, that joy
of having found one another

and nothing is ever lost
if it had ever been

so today, dear far-away one,
i am laughing again with you
our smiles are once again the same
our hearts dance together
even within this vast space
our lives have come to know

please honor yourself, dear
please hold yourself close
please listen to the silent aching of your heart
let it draw you nearer to that which you love

in our long and dramatic journeys
towards G-d
we are rising up
and bound together by that gravity
so we shall meet again

and i will still love you
i will always love you
our smiles are still the same
and your key still unlocks something in my heart
may Allah bless us both forever
