    Thank you. I was wondering how I was conditioning myself, by the voice inside my head. The sounds of words. The revalation that truth is individualistic, came as a Shock when I first ‘imagined’ it. Each of us holds a truth, does that mean communally we are truth composed of all? There is no view from nowhere, so I will stand on my own shoulders. I was wondering how to respond in a most dignified way to the violence of intent in peoples words, the bricolage of their truth which I respect, with the malice of a superior conception of what is right, according to them. I resist the homogeneity of power constructed knowledge, because material quantity is so often accorded notice of superiorority. You have added some extra strength to my thought, I like this particular truth. Its a truth of love and it is clear and intention free. Thank you again for this clear place.

    i had to go to a palapa in mexico to get away from “time” as others know it. after a month or so, i start to tell time by the sun, with amazing accuracy. i also learn the meaning of manana, the ultimate traditional mexican timepiece.

      Thanks Wendy for your thoughts. Ten years ago I read On Mexican Time by Tony Cohan. I found the rhythm of life he depicted more natural to my own. Two months in Mexico last year allowed me to connect to my natural rhythm in a new way because I was living in a culture that flowed differently than the one I was accustomed to. Thank you for the reminder of how sometimes all we need is a new location to allow ourselves to connect with our own nature. Love, Susan

    i personally enjoy those occasional times when i wake up in the middle of the night to “discuss” an issue that i have been ignoring or back burning. with no distractions and complexities, the answer is often right there for me and i can wake up in the morning and deal with it. so it would say it’s not all bad. AND the anxiety about insomnia only feeds it: celebrate the clarity of mid-night gifts!

    What if there are some questions that aren’t supposed to go away?
    Who am I?
    Do I like myself?
    Who is most important to me?
    My values may change based on new information: What is most important to me now?

    What if the first answer isn’t always the right answer? AMEN!

    Many people’s breathing gets stuck.
    They may not think of it that way but on further reflection realize they hold their breath a lot or cannot take a deep satisfying deepest calm producing in-breath. Shallow breathing sets in like concrete and often stays for a lifetime. Nor can many speak out a protest or rebuttal or even an accolade.
    The cause for these for many is in the way they breathe.

    Thinking or reading about breathing will not change it.

    It can not be taught but it can be learned.

    Hi David
    Another piece about breathing. A shallow breath or breaths, i call Pigeon Breathing, does not supply the amount of oxygen to fuel the brain. When this occurs we automatically and unconsciously move into a fight or flight reaction that is based in safety and survival in our reptilian brain. This ancient reaction to oxygen depletion worked well in the days of the Saber tooth Tiger or when I had to take the NYC subway at rush hour. Unfortunately, most of us learned safety and survival breathing as a consequence of our childhood experience and continue that breathing patten as adults.

    I love this post, you two!! I am sooooo pregnant with my future right now and it’s really helpful to have that metaphoric lens to view things with. There’s a move, a big turn in the road, and a whole new relationship with myself right in my face. Feels just like it did when I was pregnant for the 9th time (after 8 miscarriages) with my son and terrified that I’d lose him before he could be born…

    I could change that story, couldn’t I? Thanks for the lens!!

    David and Susan;
    This is great stuff! That small quiet voice that, more often than not, reminds us after the fact that we should have listened. Intuition grows by being attended to — it will dissolve from lack of attention, and then we are a captive of our ego mind, all of our conditioning, and worst of app, susceptible to ‘advice’ and opinion, and suggestion. Nobody can know what is best for us nor do our healing for us.

    How do we learn to listen to “the right, true” voice? This is the learning, isn’t it?

    Another route is “tracking” where we follow what the message and results are over a sustained time. I have noticed that my ‘intuition’ will announce itself through encountering repetitive patterns and experiences in both my thoughts and my outer world. For example, I will be thinking of a certain person, and the thought reoccurs. A little later, I will be led to a particular coffee shop, and minutes later, that person walks in the door, and we have a generative evolutionary conversation that stays with me for days. Oddly enough, the content of that conversation has been washing around in my mind, unfocused, and I now have the clarity that was missing. Our intuition works in many mysterious ways, always to our greater benefit. Isn’t that good news?

      Thank you Jonathan. The intuitive voice we all have will show up in mysterious ways. And as you stated where our attention goes energy flows, so it’s time to listen to that valuable soul voice. Thank you for that great example. Your wisdom is a gift to us all.

      I learned about my intuition in India. I was learning how to read tarot cards. I would look at them, and wait until I knew what to say. I soon learned that if I wait like this, the tarot reading would be hundred percent accurate. since then I have learned to trust my intuition. It shows up in unexpected ways, but if I obey it, it is always leads me correctly. Thus I now trust it completely, even though it may seem counter to what I “think” I should do. Where does it come from? I think it’s my higher power reaching me and helping me, guiding me, loving me.

    I find intuition is a lot like mushroom hunting — the more I acknowledge each mushroom I encounter, the more show up! Its as if the ‘mushroom’ is showing itself because it is being seen. Which comes first doesn’t matter — it works. Our rational mind can have a similar dialogue with our intuition — complete with respect and deep mutual listening. Intuition thrives on this tender, nurturing care; being met with loving presence. When you take it seriously, intuition thrives and grows, but you cannot make it do ‘your’ bidding. Do your intuition a favor: buy it flowers, take it out to dinner and make love to it tonight!

    David and Susan, your words, below,

    Sometimes we’re running a set of values that aren’t true to our core values. When that happens things get noisy inside and we can get lost in how we want to direct our lives. Life is living us and we can make ourselves physically sick.

    Core values are the principals I choose to live by.
    They are not the stories I tell myself in-order to control, manipulate and justify not being who I really am. They are not the wishes, waiting for’s and what if’s that serve the purpose of distracting me from the path of my souls journey.
    They are foundation for love, integrity and connection to all things. They are the home base for the development of respect for self and the core values of others in order to develop functional interconnected relationships.

    Dear Susan and David,
    Oh es, changes do that to our hearts. I have had major arrhythmia of my heart last summer when I traveled to Germany, 3 month of Bronchitis and both scared me so much. Now that I changed my life completely by moving from Telluride to San Anselmo my heart is fine again and I feel so healthy and fit as never before in my life. I lifted out of a deep depression by just changing my whole life. I still don’t know where I will live for the rest of my life and sometimes that unsettles me but most of the time I can relax into the Here Now knowing all I have to do is being open to where life takes me.

    It is sometimes easy to forget that we are all being impacted by the New Earth Frequency we are blessed to be in. How then could our hearts, the very core of who we are, not feel this? My heart also is shifting and skipping around, rather like a child after a long winter recluse, at last outside in the sun and delighted to be playing and alive! I can hear it saying, “Wow, what now?” How am I to be? All this light! Then I remember . ..all I have to do is listen, and ride the wave…You both are looking ever more radiant. Yahooooo!!

    Hello David and Susan
    Hope this finds you both well, enjoying the sun, and mellower existence.
    So when I was 20, in college at Michigan State, a major party school I started to experience heart palpitations . Let’s see no sleep, drinking enough beer to float a boat, smoking enough pot to float the Hindenburg , I was incredulous that my heart would behave so, scared the shit out of me. I wondered if it had anything to do with my life style, ya think?
    So a couple of months past and I was at home for summer break, dragging my ass around, depressed, freaked out, and my Cousin came up to me at the sink and said, ” what the hell’s wrong with you?” WTF do you think, my f@$king heart isn’t working right! To which he asked, ” well what’s the worst that could happen?” I stood slack jawed long enough that he answered his own question,” I’ll tell the worst that could happen, YOU COULD DIE, so what! you look like your dead already! ” And walked away.
    I finished washing the dishes and decided I’d show him, I was going get on my bike and just end it all . A good hard ride ought to do it,. My heart was jumping all over the place, but miraculously I made home. Disappointed I got up the next day and decided to try again, still I didn’t die. Alright, I must not be riding hard enough, again and again I tried, but all that happened was my heart quite palpitating. I’ve been riding ever since and if someday I die on a ride it will be a great way/ day to leave. I know I would died a long time ago with the bike in my life. I thank my cousin for that lesson often.
    And thank you both for all the great work you do!
    Miss you guys
    Much love,
    Michael

    Do we make our thoughts, do they make themselves, or do they arise in awareness, like swans that fly over a still lake with no intention of creating the reflection in the waters below? What is it that perceives these ‘thoughts and then assumes these thought forms belong to us? Is any thought ‘true?’ I have found that all my suffering is borne on the belief that a thought is true. Yet, we know that thoughts have their role in neuroplasticity, etc. Does this make them true? When we are truly at peace with what is, wellness can arise irresistibly from such clarity.

    Thanks for this lovely story. For many years when we lived in Michigan, we had a lovely “assisted living community”. We had a ‘garage raising’ where the neighbors helped us build a 2 car garage. When our daughter had to go to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy, a friend and neighbor took our son, it was 2 AM. These lovely experiences have been less frequent in more recent years. Thanks for bringing it back to consciousness. It would be great to build this again.

    Beautifully spoken, your wisdom allays what has been left in me and my heart is singing! I am honored and thankful to know you, especially as a connected, creative, heartfilled, compassionate man!

    I was labeled as well, held back in kindergarten and creativity was just plugged. It has taken a long time to unplug bit-by-bit the cork to allowing my creativity to flow. I am thankful I was not given drugs as well. Both “labels” have gifted me two obvious things: a keener sense of awareness of the more subtle and little things and scrambled words that come out as my soul shining it’s truth through. (Example: I had friends named Larry and Toni, but the names came out as Tarry and Lonely-absolute truths about them!)

    Anyhow, thank you David and Susan for continually putting your wizdom(s) out there!

    With Sacha nearing 2 years now, It’s all about music. In his eyes, in our hearts, rhythms to move with and ebb and flow. I loved the story and it reminded me of something you had once told me about a music man visiting you when you where in and around Ashland (I think). The story is so inspiring that it emboldens me to move closer to learning an instrument so that I too may express and share in the delight of sound with other kindred spirits. Atuning alters alchemy. With Love and gratitude to your both, xoxo Carina

    A loving hello to everyone who’s given way to fear and felt Stupid.
    You are not alone! LOL Judgement of ourselves creates a sense of fear of not being accepted or possibly even rejected, or negatively judged by others of how we look, or what it is we have said, done or ???? A state of mind that is “earthbound,” (limited), and usually kept within to fester and rob of of our true nature. Thanks to Susan and David bringing “Stupid” to light allows us to understand that love of self and the innate and eternal knowing of unconditional love, sheds this dark negativity of a learned/taught “earth bound” thought. We are all unique let’s rejoice in our awakening to unconditional love and acceptance. Thanks to the both of you for bringing this into the light. Always in Light and Love, C

    Love this. I felt a warm bubble of something loving birthing in my heart as I was reading and as I write these words to you both in gratitude. What is this mysterious feeling gripping my center. It feels both painful (like a stretch that releases something that is ready to leave) and freeing. Yes, this feels deeply loving and non judging on the inside. I also feel peaceful. This wisdom prescription brings peace to my heart. Aaaaah! I do not need to have “all the answers” at “all times”. I am not responsible for all solution finding. Not holding the space for all these “have to do things” does not make me stupid or lazy. I now have a renewed permission to “be” instead of just “do”. Time for space to bring in light. Hugs to you both. C in Nelson

    Yep! My thoughts, too! Trained that I “should know”. “Not knowing” was “stupid”. Yes, it keeps one down into shame. No, this N. American culture does not allow for wisdom to enter in each “not knowing” moment. Yes, it trains us to enslave ourselves getting logical answers from someone else rather than allowing of our own timing. Thank you for this. Wonderful. Much Live to you 3. Mignon

    Hola! Susan and David!
    We must be riding tandem, here! Thank you for revisiting the word “ignorant”. It was used as a judgement to shame people in my family and still is by one member. Anyhow, I have been working hard to not let agendas and “shoulds” take over my healing since my fall. In this process I have had to release all the hats I have worn that defined me. In the untangling I lay vulnerable, open and allowing of the unfoldment of my heart’s truth. Up until now, the “I should know”, “I should or have to”, often took me away from my hearts’ wisdom and what is true for me. I thank you so much for this reflection. It deepens my work and frees me more! Looking forward to your declaration!
    Love,
    Blanca

    Yes indeed. I believe you are at “the heart of the matter” in clarifying true wisdom. We are so much more than our intellectual functioning, for we have a number of “centers of intelligence” within our human body and our larger energetic body. To embrace uncertainty or not knowing is to release the belief that knowing exists between the ears. To trust the non-rational in us as a source of deep understanding is to come into our wisdom. Thank you both for illuminating something so simple yet so profound.

    I also experienced that total overwhelming open hearted and loving face presence on the four occasions I spent time with enlightened yogis at the Oneness Movement center in India. Overpowering. Yet, when most of us get back into all the stresses of daily life, it’s difficult to hold on to.

    So when I first met David about 7 weeks ago I recognized him as being very connected to that love, which is a universal force regardless of what beliefs your mind tries to hold. Because of their trip to Don’s I had to wait over a month for an important appointment with him that regarded a close relationship and my physical reaction to it.

    David’s face during the entire ‘healing’ was transformative. He was just as light, loving, astute, tuned in to spirit, and directed by love as the yogis had been. I get around spiritual circles in San Miguel and in Western Massachusetts and even New York City and have never run into this love since India. My symptoms waned the very next day and I won’t consider going to another healer. Thank you David for all your orientation to love and for sharing it with us.

    Hello David,
    Thank you for sharing this very intimate experience with us.
    What a gift to everyone that Don was able to be so present in his last days to celebrate who he was to those that knew and loved him…and to himself to experience the full extent of his living in this life before leaving.

    Towards the end of my mother’s life she and I agreed to ‘agree to disagree’ on many topics over which had previously been a thorn between us and had created a space of separation. This was a place of honor that I was being asked to hold myself, my thoughts, my differences so that I can truly join her from a heart space.

    When I joined her to be with her for her last day…I realized what a privilege it was to be with her in this sacred time and space. To say ‘goodbye’ in a thousand different ways over the period of a thousand moments was such a gift. I talked, read, held her hand, sang and prayed and sat silent by her side. She was still alert but could not talk as she had a ventilator in her mouth. Even through she did not express herself verbally she was very expressive in her eyes and spirit. I was so blessed to have been by her side to offer any comfort to her. In her final moments she was alert and tapping her finger against the hospital bed railing.

    I will always hold this experience of BEING PRESENT with my mother until the end of her life. It was measurable a very small gift to have given her after all that she had given to me over my lifetime.

    Thank you for the reminder that the presence of LOVE overcomes any barriers to our joining on another.
    Love and blessings in this new moon…planting prayers and dreams to blossom and grow. Seeds will have to wait as we are having a snowstorm today in the Colorado mountains.

    Blessings to you and Susan and to her mom Jane in this time of loss.

    Thank you so much, beloveds, for sharing your love-filled experience in the heart space in Donald’s transition. What an honor to be able to be conscious in that high vibration through it all, to touch and be touched intimately in each other’s hearts! I had that blessed privilege too, with my mother when she passed, to be at one in the heart space, eternally present in love. And as you said, it doesn’t go away, we get to keep it forevermore!

    David, I just finished reading your touching words regarding Don Perkin’s passing in your arms and into a new place. As I read the end I felt a slight cool burst of air on my arms and a lump in my throat as your beautiful words described this very personal and heartfelt sharing of hearts and soul. Thank you so much for sharing a touching experience with Susan’s dad. He was a remarkable man and you are all the better for knowing him.

    This sharing is so utterly honest and beautiful, David. If one of the great gifts that Don gave you was to absolutely learn to follow the promptings of your heart and not the noise in your mind, then I would say that the student has become a master at similarly teaching, modeling and gifting. As I learn evermore to make friends with death, I see you and Susan as beacons for the possibility that a surrender into grace with love leading the way is indeed possible. I am so deeply touched by this piece, and am so grateful to both of you. Much love, A

    I feel more rooted in who I am and my truth. All the things I have garnered from outside me, I am now asking consciously and consistently “is this correct for me?” Habits are leaving, unsheathing whom I really am. I trust my wisdom far more than I ever have. The main piece I learned from my travel is “health begins with truth.” There is no hiding, stuffing or brushing it aside. Only looking, at it straight on and feeling it in its entirety in each moment as possible, it is unthinkable any other way. Thank you for your sharing and the space to share back!

    Beautiful! Susan and David! Beautiful! And the picture too!
    So many times I feel like in my buzz-“I”-ness I leave my soul out, just hanging there, waiting to be included. Sometimes I feel like it is like leaving home with that nigling feeling I forgot something but not able to place what it is. I have learned to ask myself about EVERYTHING! And wait to listen for that deep knowing which comes in a few forms, but one, my body will respond in a “yeas, no” answer. If I am out too long or into conversation too long I feel like an excited kid who in her curiosity lost sight of “mom”. I also noticed when I am feeling weak, or my voice gets really quiet, it is not a place I am to be in, or a conversation I am to speak in or about. When my energy is strong, I am in the right direction. And reading this blog and the stories again and knowing of your offering to Mexican residencers is exciting. Thank you for continually putting your great wisdom out there and sharing your amazing insights!

    A day after my celebration of my 29th year of sobriety from drugs and alcohol…the trappings of an addictive mind…this message, rather this gift came into my awareness. Even though I still acknowledge April 1st, 1986 as a turning point in my spiritual journey, I no longer feel comfortable affirming the statement when recognizing myself as a recovering addict using the preface of ‘I Am’ Jean, alcoholic. I Am so much more than this…and no longer wish to be limited by this scar on my soul’s journey. Instead what my soul wants me to affirm is:
    I Am…Magnetic harmonic realm wanderer with attraction to light and healing.
    My angel, Ariel, guides me to my frequential wisdom in myself and held in crystals.
    Love is all there is. I follow sound and light, harmonics to a higher octave. Waking dreamtime listening to Solara.
    I Am…Lightworker, walking in trust 11/11…trusting…time traveling…entering portalsto higher level of consciousness.
    I Am…responsible co-creator following the The Sacred Geometry within my Sacred Mind…the Quietness and Presence, Deep communication with Self. Awakened Pilgrim to Prime Source.

    Thank you,I enjoyed all of your offerings, it especially ” what can I invent today?Maybe inventing the choice of wanting peace more than other things is a worthy goal?
    I value the rest of the questions!
    Questions can redirect habitual thinking that isn’t as productive like worry or doubts.
    It’s the questions that lead to better choices and unlocks creativity for me, the innate curiosity.
    I’m noticing that thoughts have vibrations and the “noise ‘ in my head or mind can really scramble the flow of car creative expression in disorienting ways.Just saying the words ” I am bathed in love now ” can be imp red to when take a shower too!

    Seeking indicates that we are incomplete, we have to be improved, we are not yet there. Contentment is the experience of who we really are and always have been. Complete. We are as the source created us, lovely (love) in every way. We have not changed, just our perception of ourselves changed and grew to limit us in our thinking. Contentment is the releasing of that perception, the release of the breath wwe have been holding, confining, the expansion of the self.

    Indeed it is a receiving, an opening to experiencing our true self, our true condition. It is a moment of deep love of everything including the self.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Gratefully, I am feeling so much the same. There are so many moments of joy, contentment, and actually a feeling that time does not exist? all time seems the same !!! ( this is not a mental concept, just a peace as if all is perfect and this moment is all there is??) Actually, this is a blessed space…after months of thinking my mind was failing, short term memory loss, and lessons to face. I finally feel all is perfect just as it is. Everything seems so much softer? Joining you in contentment…and joy!!! may you be blessed, and know that you are loved…and missed!! with much respect, and love..Linda

    Several weeks ago Isabel and I started talking about the #1 feeling we want in out lives… and it was to simply be content. So, we have been hanging out remembering to keep being content, and have found that living in the space of contentment requires nothing more than allowing “what is” to be ok with us. Admittedly it’s easy to feel contended sitting on the bow of a small fishing boat floating through the warm waters of the Mexican riviera. It seems our job is to keep that feeling present when the storm appears and waters of our lives become rough and unpleasant. Your comment that our job is “being present to the gloriously rich presence of contentment just waiting for us to notice it”, feels right on.

      Hi Don and Isabelle,

      We have wide smiling hearts reading ow you are dancing with contentment. What a foundation to live from and thrive within. You’re describing a way of being that promotes beautiful discovery and passion. The good news about David’s contentment on the beach is that it was so strong that it connected inside him to a whole legacy of contentment moments he had had and they all rushed together and are continuing too. It’s even happening on days and in places when there are “bumps” on the road. Because we’re riding the motorcycle, it’s fun to use the bump as a joy pulse. Love to you both, David and Susan

    Hi Susan and David,
    Finally replying here. Thank you for this. I was in a group that told me that “content” eventually turns to “contenscious”, and don’t I want more growth in my life? I really needed to sit with this. Because of my experience, I changed the word “content” to “sense of wellbeing”. When I am this, all is well. Thank you for your blog. The practice makes it more formal for me to deepen it more continuously. See you soon!

    Interesting how life goes awry when trying to do life for one’s self without the “all-knowing friend”. Been there. Done that. So many times! Then I stopped running away, stopped the distractions.
    Before I was afraid to listen, as if the all-knowing friend was going to be another authority yelling in my head my wrongness, belittling and criticizing me. Worst of all, make me dependent and then abandon me.
    Glimpses of joy, gratitude, love and peace happened when I unknowingly chose the various techniques to have them in my life. The discipline was NOT, until recently. With myself, at times my partner and with my fiends weekly I am more committed to a disciplined meditation that has brought me to the point where I really want it daily and sometimes more than once a day. I do not feel a desperate grasping as much anymore.
    I have come to feel safe, love, warmth in this enveloped energy and the cells in my body tingle from time to time as if I were being beamed up by Scottie on Startrek. I surrender more, to trust more, to allow more. I am in my rightful place at peace, Love, Joy and most of all Gratitude and awe for life. Yes, there are murky waters
    to cross from time to time, and dwelling does no good. Time for the lifeline out of the water-more meditation. With this gradual, gentle surrendering my sense of wellbeing is being directed by my “all-knowing friend” and I can relax into The embrace.

    Wow! Don’t know where all this came from. Must needed to share. At first I was going to ask you what got you here. Then this. Sounds like a “guest” blog. Thank you Susan and David for this platform to comment (more of a “share” in this case)!

    I know my own spirit and my connection with something much greater and because of this I take full responsibility for myself and my actions.

    David and Susan,

    Who am I in those moments?

    I am one who is centered; not always certain, because those moments are seldom as clear as I’d like them to be. Sometimes there is a lingering doubt about the rightness of the decision, but when I review what led me to make it, I am reminded of who I am and who I need to be through the storm of difficult decsions of the heart.

    Of course I second guess myself before and after, but if I weren’t doing that, I believe I would be missing the power and importance of the decision I made.

    Ha! Perfect, Susan and David (and Shayla)!
    From childhood on, I watched how I was drawn to some people to deal with my own arrogance, even if I didn’t like them, I stayed friendly with them. I couldn’t figure out exactly why I was drawn to them, just an inkling. I saw and didn’t like what they did, but when they did it to me, I ran away and blamed them. Guess I was on my path.
    I knew when I first met and married my spouse I had my errogance (arrogance) to deal with, by my projection onto him! I ran away sooo many times, I am surprised he has not left me! Eventually, my childhood techniques I used were being called out and stripped away one by one, only to come back with my defensiveness.
    This last weeks “cosmic interruption” for me, was about my armour of all these childhood techniques that don’t work anymore being dismantled all at once. There is no armour/defense now and no way to collect all the pieces I see so clearly for the first time. And yes, I feel naked, and humble. I feel a deepening, opening and compassion of my heart I had not felt before. It is as if there is a connectedness, a bringing of wisdom and communication within myself. A feeling of what humanness is about I suppose. Will there be more later to be undone? Probably, but we’ll see. It’s not time yet. For the meanwhile, a quiet enjoyment of the magical now.
    I thank you so much from the pit of my heat (heart) for the venue in which to share what happened for me. It couldn’t be a better view in which to express what I imagine to be the totality of what I was going through.
    I love you both so much! And thank you again, Shayla!

    Thank you for this.As an artist in my mid seventies,
    I have experienced this Cosmic interruption many many times…especially when I
    SET OUT AND THINK I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE END RESULT WILL BE,

    It never turns out that way
    I allow myself and the artwork to ” fall apart”
    Then I begin again and even again…and the painting to comes forward while I get Out of the way.
    I believe this is similar to what Shayla is describing.
    Call it ego, narcissism , control, whatever
    This effect has taught me to allow this to have courage & allow this phenomenon in other parts of my journey here. I recognise the trust one must allow
    Far from being perfect…I recognise now and have less /no fear….

    When my “dyslexia” and whom is in company and the subject at the time comes out, it is always curious. It is like truth, but from a deeper place, and a whole lot more interesting. In my last post on your blog, it came out at least twice. So, rather than gleam over it, it is time to pay more attention to what is really being said. Again, thank you for anchoring in the curiosity!
    Love you both,

    Good one. Thanks you two.
    I sometimes had forgotten to ask, “am I in my own timing, or someone elses?” And “am I doing this out of the goodness of my heart or am I not in the space to do…for them?”
    After my recent time of forgetting I can see I felt grumbly and snarky. Since I did not question those feelings and what they were about, I carried them along with anxiety to others around me as well as myself. A heavy bag to carry and no fun! Time to question and “change”!
    Thank you for being my friend.
    I love you two.
    Love,

    Hi Susan and David,

    There are things I notice in myself that are opened and deepened by your reflections for the collective that I so do appreciate. Thank you, most sincerely.
    My spouse has been away this past week and I decided to seclude myself in my house. There were times when he has been away, that I over scheduled myself, not allowing for the natural movement of my own spirit. I had kept up but also sped up the “ping-pong” like ricochet rabbit or pinball machine mind, only to stay in my head and not feel the moment of grief of missing my spouse. I espounded to allow grief, but up until now, seemed to have been adverse to it by having a noisy mind. I have had glimpses of this before but not so coherently.
    Right now I am really enjoying my allowing of deepening, quieting, opening. I can clearly see where I had a certain daily pattern/rythm that I liked, but had not honored it FIRST! This has created a lot of noise in my mind and body and thus the ping pong effect. I actually enjoy my rythm and I know I can allow space for shifts in the river life flow with a quieter mind.

    Tthank you again!

    Love,

    Mignon

    Dear Susan and David,
    I loved seeing you BOTH in front of the camera. Really cool! Fantastic example too!
    When I started taking Spanish classes every day I was very nervous at first. (Schooloing was not my forte growing up.). I found after a few classes that by observing the tape pulling me back, it all of a sudden disspappeared! During these last number of months I have totally been present in class and learning fast! Something I never thought I coukd dream of!. I actually love to study! Learning, curiosity and life are so much more exciting now..
    Thank you again for sharing!
    Love to you both,

    Dear Susan and David,
    I had the realization of a incident for years…and somehow I did not realize how this memory affected my whole life. It brought about my fear of being judged, so I began giving my power away to another who I felt was more spiritual, and knowing than I..!!! Finally, just speaking about the desire to put this memory behind me brought the full realization of what a “story” I had created, and lived !! Then, no longer in my mind, and with the desire to just love….it was suddenly GONE..!!! I am empowered in a new way, and it is beautiful to discover how this one, big fear….lived on with my life!!

    The wound I place on the alter, is betrayal. The very deep wounds I have felt were from my perception of being betrayed. (husbands, friends, child…..mother.) I just had the realization of this in the last month or so. The sudden realization that “all are me” clearly showed my own betrayal of myself, as I tried to keep the peace. So, this is simply a declaration at this time…..betrayal is over. I have given it to God!!! I decided to never betray my integrity again!!

    And what are my wounds?

    And right when I was ready to start reciting them for the eleventh hundredth time, I realized that ALL my present wounds are my own responsibility.

    Such as staying with my husband, living in this house, etc. Is this why I feel so defeated?

I already just learned why its been difficult for me to vision far into a fur sure for myself, my mind is probably been in survival mode, quite a long time. I keep expecting myself to be strong or for the sense of dread to disappear for good , but something like that returnees and my self esteem wobbles, or trust in something , wavers. then I see something beautiful like a sky a cloud , a feather, a child’s eyes , an old person wither walker bravely walking alone across the street, haltingly, and I am restored temporarily.

    Some of the main questions I’m asking now (and it is an ongoing inquiry) are, “What can I/we do?” “What is an intelligent and effective response?” “How can I serve?” These are questions I have asked continuously throughout my life, yet now, in the current political situation especially in the US, they have taken on a new urgency.

    Yup! I am not enslaved anymore. No “shoulds” or loneliness can entice me to share energy I do not have and to unkind and ungrateful energy received back. I am loving myself more and in a balanced way, moving, deciding at MY speed and when I am ready to. I can feel where my limit is energetically, and I now stop, instead of rationalizing and pushing my way through.
    What used to get to my energy was feeling sorry for someone; thereby imprisoning myself with them. It would become cyclical. There would be an expectation of more help/energy needed and I would feel obligated out of guilt. NOT a pretty story. Oh, and the treatment I would get from these people! Not very kind for sure.
    So, YES to loving and caring for me first! Then, “yes, you can be first after me.”

    Thanks for the stimulating post. You both know the modern mystic Andrew Harvey who was just here in Ashland, Oregon for a week of powerful presentations. Andrew has a key, I believe, with his sacred activism work. As for God, He/She is a theory to most people. Andrew used RUMI poetry to champion the power of loving God… being enraptured in our own personal relationship with the Divine. In tandem, we can follow what breaks our hearts in the world and contribute towards healing that. Sacred Activism, a way of living in any era but especially urgently needed right now!

    Dear ones,
    What a lovely and timely story as ever. Today marks the 40 th day that Sacha and I are living with two new feathered friends. Two budgerigars named Buttercup (yellow) and Wasabi (green). Last night was the first night that they slept out of their cage up high above it on their spiral perch side by side, at rest and more free than before. Yesterday morning, Buttercup was the first to nibble a branch of millet which I was holding for her. This morning, Wasabi, a little more tentative in his trust, joined in. The majesty that is unfolding for me is that I too am spreading my creative wings, anchoring my desire into concrete places in my home nest where I can make things. This gives me hope and excitement and also the strong desire to find/make the time to listen to my muses. Thank you for sharing your intuitive story about soul birds. It rings true all the way to Nelson, BC. May you both be well and happy, Carina

    I LOVE Paul Selig’s work and just started a weekly teleseminar with him called “Freedom From Fear”. I believe releasing fear and our history is critical to becoming who we are meant to be. I often refer to an old career of mine as a past life because it is so not who I am now and I can’t even relate to who I was back then. My work right now is to surrender to what is and not attach to what has been. Thanks for this post and you thought provoking questions. Sending love.

    This has been a year like none ever..!! A spiritual retreat, an accident, big debt, and more love, joy and gratitude than ever.!! Interesting that the love came from those I never expected to be there, and my joy with this was so great, and my gratitude so deep that I found it easy to spend the 3 months without being able to walk, a gift!!! And so it continues. I am well, and it was not expected. My intuition has been a huge part of my return to life..and it is now telling me to join this moment by meeting my family from far away. I know of them, I have dreamed of them……how do I meet them…??? May I just ask??

    Hi Susan and David,
    Yup. When I was young I thought there was something wrong with me because I didn’t think like the general public and then didn’t like those who did think like me because we were in remedial classes together at school.
    Lately, I had a relative visit that I layed ground rules to. I thought I was alert to their behavior, but in reacting, found I was asleep and awoke to finding myself in a jar of fog which only lifted after they left and I wrote an email expressing myself. I assumed they would get the ground rules and could not figure out what I was reacting to until after they left. Not fun, but a challenge I imagine, well learned.

      I had a confirmation yesterday of my internal guide. I was doing a difficult crossword puzzle. Although I had completed only half and would ordinarily stop and look in the back for the answer,I was propelled to continue. Slowly, after several hours the words came one after another and there I was with the completed puzzle. I stood in the awe of awareness knowing it was from my inner core that energized and helped produce this completion. I cut out the puzzle ,pasted it on the wall in front of my desk and will refer to it as a continuous reminder that my energy source is there for me.

    Where did I get the belief that integrity has some tenets that are so universal that most people do honor them??? A part of “thou shall not steal” but more subtle??? I find myself disturbed and at a big loss to discover that a person I care for and love…..would take things from me, that are simple and that I would immediately give, if asked. I would give many things to another if needed, but for one to take and not ask… has me feeling a big loss of trust., and a big disappointment. ( Not about what was taken. but it is the thought that one would invade my privacy, and take something without asking.) I totally respect another’s belongings, and privacy…..and I would never intrude…or take anything.!! but, I guess that is not the same integrity that many live with.???? how does one deal with this…with LOVE????

    • Susan & David on

      Thanks for your thoughtful and heartfelt response.
      We are familiar with the shock, the surprise when another person’s integrity operating system suddenly appears to be in stark contrast to our own.
      We keep rediscovering an obvious truth.

      None of us are constant.
      Each person we know is adjusting how they live themselves based on the changes they are living into within their known world.
      We are practicing staying up to date with those closest to us regarding how they are doing in their world and in their lives.
      Integrity is a living condition.
      Not everyone we discover has the willingness to check into themselves.
      Many just react and don’t question how their own integrity is changing, not just the integrity around as you reference “stealing” but the integrity around are they even telling themselves the truth around what their circumstances are.

      At this time of year the disparity between have and have not is at its greatest.
      There can be a desperate sense of lack.
      For us the most loving thing to do is be aware and then adjust ourselves accordingly as we engage out in the world with others who are driven by forces very different than ours.
      So as to not be blindsided by the actions of others, we are required to stay present to the reality of those around us and our own and not assume anything.

      Blessings and love, David and Susan

    Thank you two for this blog!
    I can only be in integrity with others as much as I am honest with myself and true to that. There are times I don’t want to look, like when I want to eat “fun stuff” rather than be responsible and care for myself. Same with exercise! I am older in body, exercise is an integral component to living more healthy.
    When I am at someone elses house I try to care for it the way they do, just out of respect, but also trying on another hat. Maybe I would like to care for my place in some of the ways they do. It is a constant learning. I love the creativity too.
    I can’t say “I am this way or that”, but in my awareness of my basic goodness I can.
    Thanks again!

    Yes! So Glad to read this! As a child I soaked up every one’s fear as if it were my own. It took me a long time to remember to ask myself, “is this my fear, or theirs” and “did I drag someone elses fear home with me”? I like investigating/naming the fear and also when in my environment, naming the things in the room. It’s fun being a detective!

    Hi you two,

    Fabulous blog! Thanks!

    I used to think I needed to BE the formula. I used it as a rebellious label to say I was “nothing like those” who grew up in my home town. In high school I never wanted to be “pigeon holed”. I didn’t judge others, but I pigeon-holed myself with my formulas. I have now accepted me, including those parts.

    If something went “wrong” in my life, I would find or make up a formula to live by. Then, when I didn’t want to or couldn’t do it anymore, I thought something was wrong that I could not perservere. So I would panic and look for the next piece of “solid ground” to land on (the next formula). It was constant jumping like from stone to stone and sometimes acquaintance to acquaintance trying their formulas.

    For years I wondered why I was so particular and why there were some people I did not let in that were really incredible. Well, they didn’t fit in my “formulaic” lifestyle and I didn’t know how to relate to them from that space. I wasn’t “shy”, I didn’t know how to bridge. “How would that work? Will I be pulled out of my place? Then what? Too scary, so forget it.”

    I had held myself, my family, spouse, children and friends hostage (not that I really can) to my prison-making ideas. Where was my discernment? My wisdom? Where was room for them?
    I missed some of who they are and new emerging parts of myself, my truth and even trusting, because it didn’t fit in my own self-made box!

    The formulas I had experienced now feel like the melding pot of my wisdom.

    Wow! didn’t know all of that was there!

    Thank you Susan and David!

    Love you!

    WOW!! You can almost feel the wind

    WOW! You can almost feel the wind! Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos, and bringing back sacred memories. We need to get together again to share experiences of such sacred places. We did not go to Scotland, and we went to Glastonbury Tor, Stonehenge, and became, for the first time, aware of the lay lines. Let me know when we can get together for dinner.
    Love, Alicia

    Hi Susan and David,
    Susan, thanks for sharing your healing journey with us!
    I trust the body will mend itself nicely.
    I am now in Panama, living on an island in the Bocas del Toro Archipeligo.
    I am with my partner Chad and enjoying lots of quiet time.
    Blessings to you both,

    Susan, I am so sorry to hear this.!! Yet, I truly understand this situation myself. When I was hurt, I felt in many ways truly blessed, and I knew on a very deep level, that I was held in God’s hands. I rejoiced in the quiet, the solitude and aloneness that surrounded me. I was forced to stop. !! I needed to stop!! I needed to let people help me for a change!!
    You have just expressed very well, how it feels when this happens. Thank you!! and much love!!

    Dear Susan, you are in line with other friends who have taken falls recently so I am being extra careful these days not to follow in your footsteps.
    I’m so sorry you have to go through this but as the old saying goes, ‘This too soon shall pass’. And you will be back to normal doing the good things you both know how to do. I miss seeing you and maybe some day I will get back to SMA. Best to you. Kai

    Dear David and Susan:

    There was Magic in the kitchen today as 7 year old Sacha-Michael took over, making brownies and starting a soup and a grilled cheese. Watchful motherly eye present throughout but also, and more importantly, I was a witness to the wonder that this child embodies and shares. To his brilliance, kindness, wisdom. He was cooking and doing some form of Chi Gong as he went. He concluded that he wanted to be a healer and also a cook and to start his own business. For him, there are no barriers, only possibilities – much like the office which once existed in Nelson;) Thank you both for your powerful and poetic blessing for this day. Good medicine for me. Clearly, Sacha did not need to check his emails to “get it”, he just is. Much Love, Carina

    Yes, congratulations on the book. I am curious if you are keeping your property in SMA to rent or letting it go. I just got a house there to use at times and rent mostly, so the move to Nova Scotia seems quite a change. Brrr, but no doubt gorgeous in its own way. Best with your move and yes, moving is amazingly stressful I have found. Louise

    Hi Susan and Cora.
    I love the way “God” is explained as a simple version of love.
    I think you are right, that there are wounds around the word and partly because “God” was lorded over people for generations in a negative way as a form of control.
    I like your other term, as general as it may be. It sounds like it may be what Cora needs to spread her word.
    Sending love to you and imagining Cora’s wings spreading with her friends.

    Hi Susan!! I think Not so Little Cora is an amazing book that really talks about love, and I think it can help people think about love for themselves, others and live itself.

    With that in mind, if you change God for Love or any other word that the Source of Love inspires you, it would be ok, because what the Source needs, in any name or form, is for Cora to open the hearts of people, and with a word like God, maybe we find barriers that are not necesary

    We need more people with open minds and open hearts in this world,and I think Cora can help the Soirce with that

    Thank you again for writing it

    Given how the world religions have coveted and corrupted the true meaning of the word & idea of God over the millennia, I have come to belief that religion imprisons rather than liberates. So changing the word from God to Love or Spirit or Whatever is fine with me … it’s just a word.

    Wow, the uncertainty of life here in Mexico,(87 killed since Jan. first in San Miguel) The uncertainty of the US politics, and most of all the uncertainty of and the possibility of fascism and the prejudice I see there, are frightening. I find myself thinking that I am glad I am so old, and I don’t have lots of time left here!! But, I know…uncertainty brings openings, and hope.!! My “God” is much more personal, my beliefs and laws? more personal…and my unity with everything alive is so beautiful. The words of Christ (always true) are now to me…”see things differently, all is love , all are one” Muchas Gracias Amigos!! I hope you are well and happy !!

    Thank you for this beautiful offering David and Susan. It was timely this morning and helped me, paradoxically, regain balance after a phone conversation from the world of certainty and worldly achievement. Triggers… not malign, simply reminders that knock one off-kilter.

    The world of uncertainty is my world of unknowing. It is where I live to a large extent.
    You remind me there are others who validate this realm and I was able to calm the jangling.
    A bright gift to all of us.

    Great post, reminding us of the original meaning of the word. These days, heretics are considered crazy people. A “heretical” perspective is to be scorned and ridiculed as impossibly wrong. Of course, it was once heretical to question the flat earth theory.

    Humanity never advances without the leadership of heretical thinkers who are not only able to imagine the “impossible” but have the courage and stamina to withstand attacks from the mediocre who want nothing more than a continuance of their existence with as little disrupting novelty as possible, lest it wake them from their delusional slumbers into the rigorous challenges and thrilling opportunities of real life.

    Boy, do I relate to this one! Heretic all my life since it fell apart on me at a young age. I was forced to question everything up to and including ethical standards and what kind of person I wanted to be.

    We are taught to resent bad breaks but again, like everything else we were taught, it’s upside down. Tough experiences cause us to grow, learn, go deep inside ourselves to discover everything there is. Having taken a deeply spiritual path as a result of a tough life, I accept and embrace discovery. I really enjoy where I am and am so grateful that millions of folks are finally joining me.

    It gets a little rough when your middle-aged kids call you a nut case but hey, they’re just kids!

    Interesting post! Specially for women, being a heretic is life-giving: In the boomer generation, we were inculcated into being subservient, a deadening choice for many women. I discovered that nothing alive can emerge from following anyone’s path but one’s own – even if that path looks to the world like the “right one” (in my family, herbal tea was seen as “weird”) and the one chosen, as crazy. It takes guts to make a different choice. It can mean separating from people you love. Many people simply don’t have the capacity to go against caring but critical family or friends who are invested in the norm. Discovering this has gradually made me far more accepting and compassionate towards those who may need to be heretical but can’t muster it.

    Reply
  287. Jane Moody on

    I should also have said that I’ve learned that choices have timelines. Some people move more slowly than others and often this is much the wiser path. I’ve made choices too quickly in my past, for everyone’s good – thinking it was like ripping off a bandaid. Um…no. I’ve worked through two years or more with clients as they considered all possible options. Timelines are our unique expression too.

    “Joy to the world…” That’s the title of a popular Christmas Christian song. Another line says, “Let heaven and nature sing.” Wow, that sounds pretty joyful! It’s a portrayed beautifully by the acapella group PENTONIX on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xo64Q2ucQ8

    Thanks for reminding us of this as we head into the season of pretense, when our human habit of “knowing” vs “experiencing” becomes embarrassingly obvious. Joy – the experience – cuts through all divisive hate and arrogant hypocrisy. Let’s live it!

    The only issue I have, that does not feel perfectly satisfactory, is my deep desire to feel closer to God.
    I feel I need a bigger commitment to use my time on this. I meditate, but not as much as I feel I would like to, or should?? ( saw a life? with Ayawaska, that seemed to be Essene, and with Jesus,) and I have never felt called to persue this until now. And now, it feels like NOW!! Just finished reading Anna the grandmother of Jesus !!

    Hi David & Susan, So glad to receive the messages from your communicators. I look forward to sitting in their energy when you are again doing your public transmissions. I find them highly beneficial. Sitting in that energy frequency has a potency that boosts otherwise closed channels to open in my brain. There is nothing like the real thing. Hope to see you both again when you are ready to share once again.

    Not waiting any more..!! Something has finally arrived??? There is a presence, a knowing now that I never truly did accept. I knew everything and everyone was sacred, but I did not include myself. ?? During my energy download, I was told “I MUST HOLD the light, BE the light, LIVE the Light.” It has taken a while to really get this. It does not take work, as I thought….IT IS !! It is what I am, if I trust and know that the Divine is here, it is what I am??? My own little piece of joy and peace?? I need nothing more. (Yesterday another incident with my license tags….after more that an hour in line, No they did not have a record of my name. re-apply, come back,) I just said “okay” and knew that it would happen when it did, and it was just another lesson in presence, and BEING. As if nothing must happen when I think, or want…?? I am just fine. !!! THANK YOU David and Susan…!!

    Hello Susan and David, thank you for staying in touch. Your wisdom resounds deeply within me and I am starting to make a plan for changes I need to make to be more healthy in my life. I too lived out of country for over a year – in Costa RIca. It was a good experience overall. I have been home again for a little over a year and looking around for my next great adventure. Maybe selling my house which has become a burden and getting on the road to explore more of ths US? I’m doing research to make that happen. Right now building up my health, mental, physical and spiritual for the leap into the unknown. I am not afraid just know that ths time is not right yet. I have some important work to do before launching. Love and blessings to you both, Jean owen (tompahma-woman who walks with the apples)
