We are on the verge of gathering for our Thanksgiving celebration — a time when most in our culture press the PAUSE button to gather to acknowledge the many blessings that we enjoy and to express our gratitude.

Some have traveled to join family and friends while those separated by great distances will connect through […]

Source of the Realization


Two great Sufi leaders and teachers inspire us to break through the grand illusion of duality to discover the truth of our existence and the source of the realization.
“The source of the realization of truth is within man; he himself is the object of his realization”. Hazrat Inayat Khan
The elaboration on this essential truth […]

Cosmic Motion Picture

I  admit, my last blog post – Cosmic Motion Picture — calls out for amplification, so consider this Cosmic Motion Picture part two.

Easier said than done, you’ve scoffed! How can I possibly detach from my life you have wondered? Believe me when I say that I am quite familiar with the wide range of […]

Cosmic Motion Picture

Paramahansa Yogananda’s prayer Make Me See That I Am But An Actor In Thy Cosmic Motion Picture is a source of great inspiration and comfort. His wisdom provokes one to contemplate the play of life – lila – from the observer perspective. This detachment, while difficult to achieve, is key to achieving peace and […]

Patience is too often in short supply!!  I have to admit that this is a virtue which I don’t have an abundance of and on a bad day I never seem to have enough. Perhaps you too have been feeling that the number of situations that demand patience of you seem to be on […]

Holding On

Let’s be honest, holding on through dark and troubled times can be incredibly difficult. The last time I felt besieged by the weight of life and its predictable disappointments, positive thoughts floated off like clouds on the distant horizon – recognizable but beyond reach. Each time I got close to holding on to one, […]

I am frequently asked by students and clients “what is the purpose of life”, my answer in a word – EXPERIENCE. Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan in a Bowl of Saki expresses this more eloquently, “life is an opportunity given to satisfy the hunger and thirst of the soul”.

Often this answer is followed by a […]

During Susan Driscoll’s most recent channeling of Martin and Company at Soul Source Martin reminded us that “all wisdom is birthed in silence.” He went on to say “all sacredness is shrouded in silence”, a phenomena experienced by those who visit holy sites. Most importantly, Martin reminded us that it is in the silence […]

For the longest time I couldn’t utter the word God, even silently. Not because I thought God was dead as some headlines clamored nor because God had failed to live up to false hopes or expectations that I wrongly conceived. No, it was because my sense of God was much bigger, much grander than […]

Freedom to Exercise Free Will

This is Independence Day Weekend – the time when many of us pause from our all too busy lives to celebrate the nation’s independence and the freedom to exercise free will that it affords.

In addition to the traditional markers – family picnics, parades, fireworks, weekends away at the beach, mountains or similarly restful and […]
