Welcome Free Spirits,
Early signs of spring are showing up--finally! I don't remember this much
rain, snow and wind storms in British Columbia. We are usually playing golf
in December. Maybe there is something to this Global warming--do ya think?
I just watched Al Gore's Video and it was a timely reminder of what is
happening on our little world. These are very exciting times as there are
many choices to either get involved or not. The fate of humanity has already
been determined by the obvious choices we have made. It's simply a matter of
time and as we have seen in the last 100 years of evolution of the western
culture, from horse and buggy to space ship--it's going to happen very
quickly. Spiritually, it paints a very different story when what we are
creating is viewed from a alternative perspective. What we are witnessing
now is absolute unconditional love--the ability and opportunity to destroy
ourselves without anyone coming to the rescue (it ain't gonna happen). I
personally do not see the difference between the will to survive and the
will to destroy oneself. I see them both as divine wills--personal freedom
to choose your destiny. There can be no greater love than that. Both
survival and extinction are choices, and both are within our power to
create. Neither one is good or bad if either choice brings us what we
desire. A tragedy is a human convention not a spiritual one. All things
happen from free will and the maturity by which it is applied. I want to be
here for the end or the new beginning, however you view it.
*For those of you who have moved farther along from what the modern authors
are writing about and want a glimpse of the next step--check out this book
by Adyashanti called "Emptiness Dancing. You may find details in our new book review section.
This is possibly on of the most refreshing books I have read for years.
*I have just launched my new site
http://www.yourlifewasnevermeanttobeastruggle.com and it is dedicated to
my new book which was published last spring. Please visit, and see what you
think--any feedback is grateful!!
*I just received the word from Australia and "Your Life Was Never Meant to be a
Struggle" should be on the shelves by the end of May. From there it will go
to New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore. The cover and format of the book has
been changed somewhat for the new market--I haven't seen it yet. I am so
grateful for the confidence that InkStone Press has in the manuscript.
*I suspect I am having issues with my mail client as only about 25% of these
newsletters are being viewed. I am trying a new service and hopefully this
will correct any issues with copies not being sent out.
*If you have questions you would like to ask me on the topic or about the
book--please go to my new

When In Rome, Do What The Romans Do.
If you have taken
the time and expense to visit Rome, why would you be concerned about home?
So, you have planned this trip to Rome for months-you need to get away, to
forget about things for awhile and enjoy all that Rome has to offer.
Everyone needs a vacation, a change of pace, an opportunity to experience
So why is it that two days after you have arrived in Rome, you are thinking
about things at home? Your focus is not where you are. Your mind constantly
is returning to what may be going on at home. Your job is occupying much of
your minds attention. You left home to experience Rome, not to dwell on
things thousands of miles away. Your home will be there when you get back.
Your job will be there and so will your family and friends. How much sense
does it make to be dwelling on these things?
You have 14 days, and for two of them you have not been in the moment. If
fact your time has been spend looking for familiar things- food,
surroundings and entertainment. How insane is it to go through all this
effort and not leave home? You have not set yourself free and you have just
expanded the box you now find yourself in. This kind of insanity is no less
senseless than what most of us are experiencing right now in this lifetime.
As spiritual beings we came from nothing to experience everything. The world
of the absolute is emotionless and mindless and that is why you left there
to experience the physical life and its five senses and emotions-why are you
concerned about being back at home. This is where you focus needs to be-you
do not have to worry about going back home-you will get there. The afterlife
is senseless and it is that which you are once again experiencing in this
life-you are being senseless. The physical life is a wonderful buffet of
experiences and choices and they are all yours. You may choose anything you
desire to experience, so why are you constantly thinking about going back
home-it makes no sense?
As a physical being you may wonder, but why would you spend much of your
time trying to get back to nothing? Have you forgotten why you left, why you
chose to experience being physical? From the realm of nothingness there is
an overwhelming desire to experience being something-to try and define what
your true nature is. The truth of your present experience is that you are
spirit being physical. You are life itself defining every moment of its
experience. You have nothing to think about, and it is your true nature, the
very essence of who and what you are-you are nothing experiencing being
Being spiritual is just another roll you are playing, another physical
experience. You are spirit by nature so everything that you do is
spiritual-you do not have to reinvent the wheel. You will find being
spiritual or religious has no meaning where you come from. These are moments
in Rome you chose to experience-they will get you nowhere. You cannot find
what you already are, and you are never lost.
When in Rome-do what the Romans do. When in the physical life-be physical-it
is a chosen experience.
With the experience of what you are not, comes the experience of what your
true nature is. You are life "being" something. The afterlife is not your
concern-your true nature will always be.
While you are in Rome, why not enjoy all it has to offer. Life is a fleeting
experience and every visit will be different. Your present life is change
itself, you have changed from no experience to endless experience. Your
thoughts and emotions are creating what you will experience. You cannot
experience your true nature unless you are nothing at all and even then you
will not know it. With the awareness of being nothing you can experience
being something, and the being experience will give definition to your true
nature which cannot be experienced while you are it.
You chose life to experience "being." It's not about dipping your toes-it's
about diving in. While you are wet, why be concerned about drying off?
There are those who would have you thinking about the afterlife, but it is
their concern not yours. They are playing their own rolls and what they are
giving you is simply an opportunity to experience their own paranoia.
Everyone whom you meet will give you the same opportunity. They are the
elements of the physical buffet-they are offering you choices. They are
aspects of your true nature-there as manifestations of your own desires.
Enjoy your creation-enjoy Rome!

Is the Law of Attraction Replacing God?
Here in the beginning of 2007 the law of
attraction, which means that we attract what we concentrate our
minds about, is a hot topic. The film “The Secret” has been watched
by many people all over the world, and many coaches tell their
clients to apply this law properly to their lives. Why is this law
of attraction so interesting? Well, if this law really exists,
obviously it is a means of receiving good (or bad) things in our
lives. Ultimately it makes us creators in our own universal
existence. Imagine the impact this has upon our religious beliefs:
Instead of asking God for help, we imagine what we want, believe
that it will manifest in this way, and then it will be like that. Is
this really the case?
Obviously, we can’t want and expect our parents to live forever; and
then they will live forever, so there must be things that we can’t
control (at least not completely). Does this eliminate the law of
attraction then? Personally, I don’t think so. To me it is very
possible that we live in a universe that is governed by rules from
some great intelligence (God or guiding principle or whatever we
prefer to call it), but we have the possibility to act individually
within a certain predefined frame.
If you want to make a plan for a new city you will certainly
determine the position of the railroads, the main streets (and maybe
also the smaller streets), the major buildings (train station,
public buildings, etc.); but you would not plan the looks of each
individual house in the streets (how could you?). There will be
plenty of room for individual wishes and creativity in designing
these houses. In the same way, it is very logical that whoever or
whatever created our universe (including us, the human beings)
designed the overall rules and frames but left room for us to act
individually. If not we would have no free will at all.
So it might very well be the case that we have a lot of influence
upon our own lives, that to a large extend we can create it
ourselves. Of course, we are still subject to universal (or divine)
laws, but we might certainly be able to affect our own earthly lives
much more than we ever thought.
Some wise men claim that the whole universe (including our own
bodies) is one big illusion in our minds. This is, of course, a
possibility not to be ruled out; and if that is the case, then why
use any effort trying to improve the illusion? Wouldn’t it be better
to get rid of the illusion instead? This is a very logical argument;
and provided that we can get rid of the illusion quickly and live in
eternal peace afterwards, it might be a waste of time trying to
improve our experience of the illusion. But if it is not that
immediate, and if we don’t know how to free ourselves from the
illusion, then why not live a better illusion?
