Reflection on Being Spiritual

“How spiritual you are has nothing to do with what you believe, but everything to do with your state of consciousness. This, in turn, determines how you act in the world and interact with others.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

It isn’t enough to hold on to noble ideals and beliefs, we have to bring them into our awareness and then into our lives.

When our consciousness transforms our actions will follow.

May we all go deeper and beyond the dogma, and connect to our intuitive awareness and higher Self.

Live life from here and follow the spirit within you.

Namaste

TO GLOW

Like light in the sun
spilling out of the sun,
the spirit within
beams its way
through all our cracks
till our most treasured
walls come down.

The coming down
of those walls is the
blessing we crave
and resist.

The coming down of
those walls— so the light
of the soul like the light
of the sun can help
the world grow— this is
the call of calls.*

~ Mark Nepo

 

Feel it. See it. Hear it. Touch it.

My Face
is everywhere –
and
all you are
gazing at is
roses.

Find your Middle Ground

~

If you are new to this site, welcome!

Find your Middle Ground is about stepping away from stressful days and anxious minds, and taking time to pause.

When we are mindful of the present moment and simply allow it to be, we open a door to our natural state of being – accepting, loving, peaceful, kind and happy. Most of us are so distracted and moving so fast that we get caught up in the world of “doing” or worrying about what we should be doing next.
Too much doing and thinking disconnects us from our sense of “being”and who we really are.

I write about finding this place of connection, contentment and peace in the highs and lows of life. I call it our Middle Ground.

* Nurturing Thursday – Your True Name

garden retreat

Listen. the beloved
is singing you
a love song.

Right now, as you
sit inside your house
of bone and flesh,
the Beloved knows
your essence

Do you hear the
subtle sound of
breath, the bullfrog
chorus borne upon
the wind? Do you
experience the
silence beneath
the hummingbird’s
quick wings?

The Beloved never
stops speaking
your true name

The Witness

witness consciousness

When I can be the witness
all manner of miracles occur-
old wounds heal, the past
reveals itself to be released,
present dramas play themselves
out without sinking emotional
talons into my soft skin. The
witness welcomes truth and
dares to meet reality on its
own terms, It is the ground
in which the seeds of
transformation take root
and finally flower. when
the witness is awake, the
lake of mind is still, and
in that mirrored surface,
I see my own true face as
Spirit smiling back at me.

Danna Faulds from Go in and In

These words settled in deeply today as I read them at the end of yoga class.

When we learn to become observers of ourselves – just noticing without judgment, we open the gateway to witness consciousness and inner transformation. Along with this self-awareness comes the contentment of just being here, alive, enjoying being present in this moment.
