Only for the Serious Student

If you’re here looking for shiny objects, or for me to make false promises of happiness, riches, wealth, fame, then please move along. No shiny objects here.  The work I do and I offer here for you is only for those who are truly serious about:

Coming to know themselves.

and being freed of the inner obstacles to living that truth.

This work is not easy and it doesn’t happen overnight. It also does not happen without your commitment, persistence, determination, courage and resilience.  This is the difficult and challenging work of peeling back all the layers of woundedness, fears, false perceptions, ego attachments and societal conditioning that for years (if not lifetimes) have held you back from fulfilling your Soul’s purpose on this plane.  Until we discover and support ourselves in living that purpose we will “live a life of quiet desperation,” forever searching for that something outside of ourselves that will make us feel whole, complete, peaceful and content (money, our soulmate, fame, power, money, the house, the car, the purse, etc. etc. etc.).

The difficult truth that our society doesn’t want us to know is that the satisfaction to this desperate longing is not to be found outside of us. It can only be found within.  This is the truth discovered by some of history’s greatest spiritual teachers – Moses, Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Mohammad, the Buddha, the Dalai Lama, Amma, etc.  This is the truth I support you in discovering and embodying within yourself – that place where you will know your truth – the truth that sets you free.

While this work is not for the faint of heart, my purpose in sharing this work is to support you on that journey. To provide the guidance, comfort, support, you need to complete this task.  I won’t do the work for you, but I will support you in doing this work and help you to move through the inner obstacles that might tempt you away from the only task that matters – coming to know yourself and living from that place of self-knowledge.  Only in knowing ourselves and our highest truth are we able to find contentment, peace, joy and fulfillment in the human journey.  It is for this very reason we chose to be human in the first place – so that we might come to know who we are.

While this work is not for the vain, I will further support you in knowing that those who come to this work and complete it are rare. As this morning’s scripture reflects:

The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks about earthly things. The one who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard, yet no one accepts his testimony.  Whoever has accepted his testimony has certified this, that God is true. He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. John 3: 31-34

The gospel writer is referring to Jesus in this passage – one of the great spiritual teachers who came to know this truth. Who fulfilled his Soul’s purpose by coming to know himself and living that truth to its fullest.  The truth Jesus came to know was the truth of Oneness – that all are One in our Divine Source and that when we embody this truth in our human experiences, we find peace.  Jesus then went out to teach others how to experience this Oneness and in doing so, finding their own truth.

But Jesus did not make earthly promises. He didn’t promise riches, fame or power.  Instead, he spoke of “heavenly” things.  And very few listened.  As those who truly heard Jesus’ word and fulfilled it in their own life were rare – so shall you be.

If you’re looking for shiny objects, please move along. But if you are serious about the task of knowing yourself and living that to its fullest, here you will find welcome and support.
