Don’t Tie Your Happiness To What Comes And Goes

AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader May 2017  Article  Don't Tie Your Happiness To What Comes And Goes There are times when I would get up out of bed and feel a deep sense of Spirit. One day, in sharing my euphoria with my husband, he half-jokingly said, “Don’t worry. It won’t last.”  I wished he had supportive words for me or, at the very least, keep quiet. Although his timing was awkward, there was truth in what he said: no feeling, sensation or perception is permanent, no matter how hard we may try to make it so. Life seems like a challenge because, when experienced as a personal self, life is unreliable.  One can never be certain that others will keep their promises. We too may not keep our promises, not even to ourselves. A high school sweetheart may have promised to…

From Conditioned Self To True Self

Radavie is a Sibyl Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader  April 2017  Article From Conditioned Self To True Self Before we could pick up a pen, we began recording our life story … chapter by chapter, starting with our ancestral heritage and our childhood upbringing.  All that transpired has been etched in our cells and psyche.  The True Self became veiled. We were trained to believe what we were taught.  Through this, we have embodied a set of rules and values.  We learned that education, money and relationships would bring us happiness. This is the world of conditioning, separation, competition and self-conflict. Separation Growing up, we learned that everything in the material world is in subject-object relationship: mine-yours; us-them. We learned that you are different from me. Focus was placed on our differences and not our common essence. Through separation we were not always treated and seen…

True Simplicity Is To Live From Heart and Not From Mind

  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader  March 2017  Article True Simplicity Is To Live From Heart and Not From Mind The mind is complex. The heart is simple. Appreciating the difference between mind-based simplicity and heart-based simplicity can mean the difference between a lifetime of struggle or one of happiness and inner peace. In our daily lives mind-based simplicity can have many meanings: decluttering our home, cleaning up e-mails, eliminating “stuff,” consuming less, trying to stop multitasking, incorporating technology to replace manual tasks (only to have to deal with technical problems). On and on.  All of these are worthy endeavors. Yet as time goes by, we find ourselves working more and more in the attempt to do less and less.  How ironic. You can’t downsize your way into True Simplicity. I’ve tried it and it doesn’t work for long. True Simplicity has a much more profound…

The One Promise That Can Never Be Broken Featured in Sibyl Magazine

Radavie is a Sibyl Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader February 2017  Article  The One Promise That Can Never Be Broken We’ve all experienced broken promises. Not only promises broken by others, but also promises we’ve made to others.  We even break promises to ourselves.  Remember that unkept New Year’s resolution?   Relationships are fertile grounds for broken promises. If it weren’t for broken promises, I’d imagine the world’s library of love songs would be half the size. Broken promises can leave wounds One broken promise I experienced left me with a wounded heart.  It was the morning of my 8th birthday.  My mother promised me a soft drink for my gift. I felt so happy that she acknowledged me. As children we all want to feel important and loved. I was overjoyed and couldn’t wait for my soda. Hours went by. It was late and my brothers…

Awakening From the Wounded Child Series Featured in Sibyl Magazine

Sibella Circle Member & Visionary Leader January 2017 Article Embrace Your Wounded Child! Until we embrace our Wounded Child, our search for Spiritual Awakening will be elusive. Due to parental and social conditioning our Wounded Child has been covered with defensive behaviors, protective personalities and blame. So often as adults, our continuing “self talk” may sound like this: “If this never happened to me, I would be… .” We live from a longing to be free, while blaming our past. My Loss of Innocence Through my childhood experiences, I have come to understand that all this “self talk” is the voice of human conditioning. For me, it all started when my mother went through a difficult child birth. I had to be extracted by the midwife because of an unusual breach. We both could have died. Throughout my childhood my mother often told me, “You have come…

Feel into the energy of where you are right now and I guarantee you that you will become more aware of your true feelings that are covered over by your beliefs. It is the…

Wisdom from Adyashanti

" Of course, growing up is traumatic to some degree for all of us. Even if you had a wonderful upbringing, the most lovely parents, and the most nurturing environment in the world, there’s no growing up without experiencing some level of trauma: Life itself is traumatic in one sense: it is traumatic to a sense of separate self. There is no getting away from it." ~Adyashanti~
