Seek the quiet part of your soul. It is an island where you can rest and connect with what you need to know.  All of this has been written many times before. It is nothing new. Perhaps it is the first time for you; or for others a repetition of past doctrine?

This quiet part of your soul knows. It is an organ of perception; something which has its own life.  This aspect of the soul is able to perceive the hidden impulses which originate from the distant shore.

You are nothing more than a link in a chain which extends far into the past and reaches into the future. What you can offer yourself and your children is an opportunity to drink of this wondrous heritage.

Work on yourself so you might become a channel through which this wisdom passes. It is within reach if you know how to grasp it.  Come forward and claim your birthright. It is yours for the taking.

In the morning and evening, seek the quiet part of your soul.  It is an island from which you may come forward, accept what is yours and live your dreams.

It was a beautiful morning and something told Turtle to take the back road to Pond.  As Turtle approached the giant sycamore, which stood on the north shore, he noticed the tree was lined with scores of cocoons.  As Turtle drew closer, he saw the cocoons were breaking up and beautiful butterflies, slowly, through their […]

Measuring Inner Development

Q: In my inner development, how do I know if I am advancing? What criteria can be used to measure progress? Everyone is moving forward and evolving.  That is the nature of the universe.  If a path has not opened to you, pray and follow the teachings of your religion.  If you are not able […]

Religion: Foundation For Spiritual Learning

Q:  What purpose does organized religion as we know it serve? Religion is a structure through which spiritual learning can begin.  As the traveler advances, spiritual learning may take place outside of a religious context. Spiritual experience is the natural extension of religious inquiry; the great religions were created to be vehicles, for people to […]

Snail’s View

Two snails were having a race up a rock.  The first snail said, “I’m the fastest creature who ever lived.  No one has ever been faster!” The second snail thought, as he raced up the rock, “If I can keep-up with this fellow, then, I too will be the fastest creature who ever lived.” After […]

Frightened of Self

Turtle was pacing up and down the floor, mumbling to self, “Who am I? Who is the real Turtle?” Turtle proceeded to do this for hours. Finally Turtle’s pacing brought him before the mirror which stood in the far corner of his burrow. When Turtle looked up and saw his own reflection in the mirror, he […]

Dandelion Sisters

Once there was a dandelion that had 3 beautiful, yellow children.  These sisters used to play in the wind together and were known across the meadow for their sweet fragrance and striking color.  One morning as the 3 sisters opened to the sun, the appearance of one of the flowers was changed. Its blossom, although […]

Happiness #2

Traveler:  And the traveler sat before the Master and questioned, “Happiness is a transitory thing. It is as elusive as a spring day in winter. One moment I am laughing and the next sad. Master tell me what I must do to balance myself and find lasting happiness?” Master:    And the Master sat, with eyes […]

Happiness #1

Happiness is an emotional state and for the most part comes and goes. Also it is an emotional state which can be learned and refined. Often we make ourselves unhappy by replaying, in our mind, those things we consider distasteful. When something happens that is painful, usually, it is over in a matter of moments.  […]

Three Voices

Ego Says:             I must have this! Mind Says:          I can list 10 reasons                               Why it should be mine! Soul Says:            Be still greedy one.                               We know what you need. O spiritual traveler, consider well the voices in your head/consciousness; each serves a purpose, useful in its own way. Listen to the many sides of self, […]
