Life is Like iTunes

My new favorite metaphor for consciousness is shopping iTunes, Apple's online store boasting a digital inventory of millions of media titles. Virtually anything you want to hear, watch or read is a just a click away.

Life is like that. We pick a thought, download it into consciousness, and play it out in our lives. Like iTunes, the universe offers more choices than we can possibly absorb. Some enrich life, others have the opposite effect. Some downloads we'll replay over and over. Others might sit idly in the library of our consciousness.

Blessing Buffet

Tapping the universe’s abundance is like feasting at a gourmet buffet: Parking one’s backside at a table expecting each course to be magically delivered is a setup for dashed expectations. To partake of the bounty, we have to get up and help ourselves.

Still Waters

Nestled in a secluded lush forested glen completely isolated from the sprawl and crowds of Cape Cod's high season, a pristine spring-fed pond -- think sandy-bottom lake not mucky green bog -- invites the few visitors who know of it to float aimlessly across its still, calming surface. My cousin calls it her own "little corner of heaven." She took me there last week, each of us outfitted with an inflatable pool chair.

Ordinary Miracles

Miracles don't just happen. They are not magic. We co-create them. Sometimes, we're able to see them forming and explain their appearance. Mostly though, the infinite power of the universe shaping the substance of our consciousness materializing in our day-to-day lives is beyond our comprehension.

Free To Trust

In Unity we say this all the time: When we’re truly aligned with Spirit, our happiness cannot be compromised because we’re free from attachment to outer conditions. But how exactly do we live that principle?

Free to Choose

Here's a spiritual exercise for demonstrating freedom in anticipation of next week's Fourth of July observance - specifically, the freedom we have to make choices that are in harmony with our divinity. Think of it as a game to help focus your power to choose the thoughts and feelings you hold, and the resulting actions you undertake.

Blow Out the Doors

Blocks can sometimes become so entrenched in consciousness that we're completely unaware of how severely our good is limited. Transformation requires an entirely different perspective, often coupled with a complete excavation of old ways. The good news: Once a shift is made, Spirit rushes to support the new consciousness in ways previously unforeseen and unimagined.
