SURRENDER DOROTHY!

I was the girl who wanted to be great at everything—without practice. I was great at nothing. NO. NATURAL. TALENT. Yet, because I had to practice a lot at everything, I learned that practice meant I was learning something new every time. As a spiritual teacher, I find this to be the coolest news I get to deliver. The goal of unrelenting, unending earthly processes is not to torture you, but to awaken you to this notion. The chores we perform 20,000 times in a lifetime were never meant to be the same experience even once. They were never meant as “chores” either. These rote tasks are to teach us every time—new…

Compassion: The Door to the Universe

Compassion. It’s a buzzword of the spiritual elite and the only word most psychologists get really excited about. The word itself appeared around the mid-1300s, so it’s not a new concept; yet in the real world, there are very few people speaking of compassion. One rarely hears parents in parks reminding their children to be more compassionate. For me, personally, compassion is a word whose meaning was completely elusive most of my life. All I can say is that, somehow, we know compassion is really important, yet we do not seem to be very compassionate as a whole. The idea…

WHY DO YOU KEEP SAYING THAT DANA???

Almost EVERY SINGLE TIME I get a piece edited for this blog, my own editor questions my use of this word and what the heck I mean by it. Let me clarify the use of the word “posture” and extend my sincere apologies to anyone else I’ve confused! I’ll try not to get carried away. Your “posture” is the most important thing you can understand about yourself. Your posture, not your intellect, defines your ability to understand the universe. To ultimately be successful, you must master the rules of the universe. Your posture reveals your understanding of the rules. “Posture”…

“Oprah Church”

For a time in the 1990s and early 2000s, an entire international generation of us all went to the same church. If you lived in Houston, Texas, church was Monday through Friday at 4 pm.  “Oprah Church,” a.k.a  The Oprah Winfrey Show, was divinely timed, as there is nothing else you could or wanted to do in Houston most days at 4 pm. It was simply too hot to venture out at that time of day, and yet too early for frozen adult beverages and chips with queso. History will remember Oprah as a great humanitarian and spiritual teacher. It is because of her singular extraordinary voice that we are witnessing the unprecedented flowering of consciousness that the…

RESOLVE: The Greatest Gift We Are Given (and the Only Thing We Are Seeking)

If Harry Potter could tell you what the magic force was in his wand, he would say “resolve.” Resolve is a universal force and sensation linked with the effortless power within you in unity with the universe. That’s why we all seem to want it come January 1 every year—we subconsciously remember its link with oneness. This is the time of year we naturally ascend and move into this powerful state of oneness (and resolve) naturally, which is why Christians celebrate the birth of an ascended being, Jesus, this time of year. According to Webster’s, “resolve” is defined as “finding a solution to something” or to…

ZEROES ARE HEROES

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…
