This is the Most Fun I Can Have Today

The Now Screen

What if

what you saw in front of you was defined as YOUR SCREEN. It is your movie that you are watching every second. Wait, let’s get even more specific. Your body is a projector and your eyes are the rays that are projecting the moving image. Everything that you see, in your field of vision is the screen.

What if

that is ALL you could play with: what is on that screen. You cannot look at past scenes or future scenes but only that which you can see. All of your amusement, information and engagement could only be from this screen, THE NOW FIELD.

What if

the only opportunities that existed were available or accessible through this NOW SCREEN.

What if

you knew that you would never be bored, in lack, unsurprised or wanting because the NOW FIELD could never disappoint. But you can’t cheat either. You cannot let thoughts of lack or disappointment or anxiety or fear in unless they were presenting themselves on the NOW SCREEN. Then you would know exactly what to do.

Now, just plug in some good music from the universal dj known as “Shuffle” on you iphone for a soundtrack and see what shows up!!

An Invitation to All Musicians Out There

The romance started on my birthday a few days ago. I blocked out the world and plugged into music, completely. I hit SHUFFLE on my I Tunes so that the universal DJ could do it’s thing and play songs that matched the vibration I was in of profound love, bliss, private revolution and sacred soulfulness. My day was a movie with a soundtrack of songs like early CSNY (heavy on the Neil Young), “War” by Lennon and “Give You My Heart” by Doyle Bramhall II. I was no longer an appreciator of deeply connected music, I was an extension, an amplification of this holy vibration.

The playlist kept getting better as the day went on, taking me deeper and deeper. Rick Dufay emailed a live guitar solo and put the cherry on top. Wrapped up or encoded in this music is every human emotion, every heart-quaking desire, every bone-splitting pain, every love-tendered salve; in other words the full human experience, which is the new spirituality.

There is new music to be made to keep us all matched up together in this vintage sensuous dimension known as Planet Earth and the fully engaged human journey. I can’t wait....

A Way to Not Be Jealous

Jealousy comes from a place of limitedness. When I am jealous it is because I think there is a limited amount of love out there and somebody else is going to take my share away from me.

But then I thought about it. Has loving someone new ever changed the way I felt about anybody? No, I just love another person. My feelings for the others can’t be changed, I already love them. In fact, I am just creating more love by loving someone else!

It feels like relationships are changing and lines are being erased. The language hasn’t caught up with it yet, but we can help that. This is another example of learning to love the grey area.

Learning to Love the Shades of Grey

I’m learning to love the shades of grey. How have I gotten by so far, being so black and white? This is very limiting! As I am trying to make my way out of such duality, I realize it is all about the language.

Language is a door to exploring new ways of being. We live according to our words and concepts based on words. So if we expand and evolve our words as we do, WE expand and evolve.


Black and White Languaging

I have a boyfriend. An ex-boyfriend comes to town after a long time. I want to see him, but I feel like I would be cheating. All I really want to do is see him and talk to him. The limitation of my mind and it's language is creating conflict.

The shades of grey reveal a totally separate reality. The language in my head may go something like this:

Grey Languaging

Wow, I wonder why this ex-boyfriend is showing up at this time in my life? Who knows why? The most natural thing would be to see him and find out and even integrate him into my life. Maybe he is supposed to meet my current boyfriend for some reason unknown to me. Maybe he is here to heal something between us from the past. Maybe this will bring a new intimacy with my current boyfriend and I, as we go through this. What an opportunity!
