THERE’S A VEIL?

Lolly_O-P

When I enrolled in massage school so many years ago, it was yet another foray into the quest for me-ness? You know, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Not expecting too much, after all it was just massage therapy, I threw myself wholly into the process. And, not realizing at the time, that it would save my life. Having said that, I must acknowledge that a series of unrelated, unexpected synchronicities fell into place to allow me to indulge this adventure.Coincidentally, and around the sa … [Read more...]

The veils have thinned…

The veils have thinned. Yet the streets are empty and seemingly swept clear of people hurrying about their daily routines. No doubt about it. How to apprehend the thinning of the veils in times of tumultuous chaos where nothing makes sense because we humans are locked in the throes of seemingly endless earthbound struggles that have grave consequences if we don't care to rise to the task of securing a calming consciousness? No one is about. No one seems to stir or dare out of their houses. … [Read more...]

The Veil

Victoria_Pendragon2

I first heard the phrase “the veil is lifting” back in the 90’s; at the time, I would imagine that each of us who heard it mentioned in the rather generic way in which it was brought to our attention, thought of it as being something a little different. We didn’t discuss it. One of our teachers mentioned it in passing and left the concept hanging out there. Since then I have heard many interpretations of the lifting of the veil ranging from inter-dimensional access being made more easily availab … [Read more...]

Lifting the veil: Is the Time Now?

Discover Ireland Centre, Dublin October 2013

Is the time now? Always.Have our religious, philosophical and ethical systems converged? Well…it’s a process.Like any seed sprouting, there is a struggle against resisting soil to burst to the surface. The evolving spiritual consciousness is happening now. But to happen, it also meets resistance.  This is a necessity of growth.Change is a tricky thing for us humans. On one hand our philosophers early on told us that change is the human condition. Yet, the I Ching was written to help h … [Read more...]

Wisdom, Leadership, and Letting Go

Yvette new pic

I did not see myself as a leader as I was coming of age, but even my mother was jealous of the powers unseen by me, and often said so. My father regularly referred to me as “a mighty powerful woman,” but I saw this as one of his silly jokes, like telling me that my shoes were as big as gunboats, and that I was adopted from an Indian princess.My father also called me "Y;" he said because I always wanted to know the why of everything.I regret that I did not know that I had this gift that must b … [Read more...]

Wisdom’s Kindness

Elizabeth_bishop

A stranger approaches. Who is he? Should I be wary? He is wearing a  large oval-shaped locket. Pure gold in the sunlight. That's what distinguishes him. I am sitting at a table at a crowded shopping center. I believe the young man is looking for someone or something. Maybe his brand new car that he is not used to seeking out in the ever widening parameters of an unfamiliar car park.What is he looking for, if not his car then something else. Imagine now, perhaps his girlfriend around the corner … [Read more...]

The Wisdom to Stay Still

Nancy_Thurston

Moving slowly and listening deeply are common practices for a Sabbath day. Lately, however, I seem to be in seven-days-a-week period of deep listening and moving at about twenty percent of my normal, double or triple-tasking speed.The nagging voices in my head are quick to point out how ridiculous it is that I am doing so little when I have a book to market, blogs to write, friends—some in very difficult situations—to visit and a hurting world all around me.I know that voice: the good, re … [Read more...]
