Simplify, simplify, simplify

I recently had lunch with a spiritual friend who helps to keep me sane and questioning things. I wrote the latest astrology blog before our meeting, but I now want to underline its message even more since he has confirmed that many spiritual sages have been conveying the same things.

If you’re waiting for things to calm down or go back to how they used to be you are not only wasting your time (life?), you are just adding to your own suffering. There are times in our life’s journey that we feel really lost–that’s normal, alas! Remember that stars are born in the energetic void of the universe, otherwise, they can’t expand into their own brilliance.

I lost my hat while gazing at the moon, and then I lost my mind.

~ Rumi

Beware of being drawn in by the superficial appeal of certain practices and teachers which lead you to pleasant experiences but not much more. It’s time for walking the talk: regularly clear your mind and tune into messages other than your thoughts. Soften your perceptions, take a larger view of the greater arcs and cycles of life for everyone’s benefit, and simplify, simplify, simplify.

With love & light,
