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…

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”…

THE SPIRITUAL PURPOSE OF EMPATHY

A quantum leap in the spiritual journey is the ability to be empathetic in your relationships. Empathy is loosely defined as “the ability to share and understand the feelings of another.” I personally describe the act of being empathetic as the ability to climb into the driver’s seat of someone else’s car and steer it for that person for a while—mentally and physically being him or her. I call this total alignment. It sounds simple enough. We watch movies and read books, and we love being other people in fantasy situations. We all know how to do this at some level.  However, when we are witness to…

SYMPATHY, SCHMIMPATHY…

After the ten-thousandth time of bemoaning a well-trodden problem, my husband simply said, “When are you going to be ready to let that go?” In a remarkable moment for my stubborn mind, I heard something completely new and totally unexpected, “Dana, your story is a story that is comfortable and keeps you stuck—right where you like it. Your trench is dark and deep, and now you’ve happily nested in there.” Only it wasn’t a nest, it was the Taj Mahal of dark stories and anger that I was certain was responsible for my unhappiness. I’ve moved more times than most people would consider sane. Yes, moving…

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…
