Miracles, Light, and Spiritual Practice

I was in an elevator in the heart of the Texas Medical Center in Houston. The building was huge, but it did not occur to me that office number 3502 meant the 35th floor. The elevator just kept going up. I finally arrived at a very nice, large “office.” It was a therapist’s office, and all I could think was, “I hope my insurance is going to cover this because I can’t afford this kind of therapy.” After a few anxious minutes of waiting in the outer office, I was invited into the therapist’s office. I was greeted by a…

BOOK ONE is Done!!!

In times such as these, when we feel as if the world as we’ve defined it is breaking apart, we want to cling to something—or someone(s). The leader of the free world, the pope, or a doctor are the people to look for reassurance, inspiration, and answers. But it’s not their job to make us feel okay. It never was. Yes Dorothy, the illusion that we all must address at some point in our lives is that others have more power or wisdom than we do—they don’t. You alone, and uniquely, are fully equipped for this ride. Therefore, we fix…

Donuts, Purpose and Wormholes

I teach transcendence. Whatever you do, don’t look it up on the internet. There are too many complicated discussions about it, and it’s actually much easier than it sounds. I predict (mark it on your calendar) that in five years there will be Transcendence Studios conveniently located next to every Dollar Store in every strip mall  in America.  Here’s why: transcendence is the spiritual cheat we’ve all been given to access a place we didn’t even know we wanted or existed. In physics, the wormhole is the secret tunnel, so to speak, between parallel universes that exist light years away from one another. The wormhole makes the impossible possible: you…

LEARNING THE CODE

So I’ve written a guide to the universe. I know. No one saw that coming. Trust me. We’re all shocked. The book was effortless. However, the struggle of allowing myself to write it came with profound suffering. Tragically, this was never how it was supposed to be. Suffering is unnecessary and this is why I write, and teach, and continue to learn. My work is about teaching you what not to do with your life, as much as it is about teaching you what to do with your life. “The guide” is about how to help you enlighten; painlessly and effortlessly. So what is enlightenment, exactly? Consider…

Day 210

Day 210. Lots to report. My book finally came back edited. My editor informed me that my “guide to the universe” was like 5 books in one. I said, “You’re welcome.” He said, “No.” And some other stuff like “Your grammar is that of a fifth grader” and, basically, “Get busy with some major rewriting, Dana.” So here I am, blogging all day and writing all night. With any luck, Benevolent Universe may be in print by fall. I can use your prayers, people. In other news, I have found a new gym routine and have unleashed an inner beast. Above is one…
