As we recognize where we are mentally and what we are giving out (energetically), we begin to identify how we are affecting others, and thus, we recognize how they reflect back our inner nature.  It is a subtle dance and with willingness and awareness we become more and more accountable for what we put out and what we then receive back.  Judgment, blame, and irritation become battles we have with ourselves as we refrain from projecting outward.

Every pair of eyes we meet is an opportunity to gaze into the sacred mirror of our soul – our memory and our mind.  The more gentle we are to our neighbors, friends, families and lovers, the greater the gift toward expanding our awareness.

There is no enemy except unto thy self.  Befriend your nightmare and your dreams will transform.



“That is fundamentally the only courage which is demanded of us:  to be brave in the face of the strangest, most singular and most explicable things that can befall us.”  ~Rilke

“For it is not only indolence which causes human relationships to repeat themselves with such unspeakable monotony, un-renewed from one occasion to another, it is the shyness of any new incalculable experience which we do not feel ourselves equal to facing.”  ~Rilke
