Do Nothing, Change Everything

If you had to place a dart on the picture above representing levels self-awareness, where would it land? Are you aware you’re angry? Do you spend most of your time being angry? Are you ashamed of some things about yourself? Are you aware of any fear? Had you asked me twenty years ago (and I had been truthful), my self-awareness dart would have landed somewhere on the wall—not even on the board. I was relatively unconscious and unaware of any suffering. I was numb and told everyone “I was fine.” This is often what unconsciousness feels like. Ironically, because I was…

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…

Understanding the Universal Desire for Perfection

As compassion awakens, we find ourselves in a new land—or at least it feels that way. This new land is one where the rules are apparent and you are guided easily through the journey. It is a place where dreams don’t die in the daylight; we manifest with ease. It is a place of power, beauty, and abundance. It is a place of peace and kindness. Alice called it Wonderland; Dorothy called it home. Either way, there’s no place like it. Right now, you are likely calling this perfect place “there”—where you’ll be healthy, happy, rich, famous, safe, and secure, here on Earth. I commonly refer to…

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…

The High Price of Self-Denial

“Dare Greatly,” “Dream Big,” “Just Do It.” These are the war cries of our times. I know this because I have all the throw pillows, athletic gear, and books. These ideas are powerful and they resonate deeply in many of us. Yet before we can even finish sewing the flag and assembling the marching band for battle, we become crippled by the real problem—we don’t know the thing, we are to just do; we don’t know what the big daring dream is. Dammit. How am I so sure this is the fundamental issue? Because if we really knew what we were here to do, we would just be doing it.…

WHERE WERE WE AGAIN??

Oh yeah, that’s right. I recently assured you that you are a genius. You are here to do something that no one else can do. It will be the only thing you want to do and it is linked to your spiritual and material abundance. These are not simply huge promises. These are the rules of a universe that is more benevolent than most people (including myself for many years) can imagine or have simply just forgotten. To master this game, we must submit to its rules. If you are not sensing this kind of abundance, material or otherwise, there is only one reason. You are…

Anger Management is Not Just for Charlie Sheen and Me…

Hey Dana, I’ve become aware that I am angry all the time. I am upset to discover this about myself. What is anger in the spiritual world? ANSWER: First of all, thank you for submitting a question! Really good question, too! Know this, anger management is not just for Charlie Sheen and me. The whole world is in anger mode right now—it’s hard not to be angry. The good news is that you are aware of your emotional state. Ironically, most angry people, are not aware that they are angry. Being aware of our anger means that we are awakening. Now would be a…
