Soulbyte for Friday October 5, 2018

Let not your ideas of yourself spoil the riches in life. Let not your fears take away the joys. Let not your sadness steal your possibilities. Let not your loneliness keep you from experiencing union. All these things are overcome as you dare yourself to live each day to the fullest, as you realize that thoughts and fears are but habitual patterns adopted long ago, that sadness and loneliness are teaching you that you want more. Prepare your body, mind, and spirit for what is to come. Get yourself ready each day with expectation, with positive thoughts rippling through your mind, with a smile on your lips. And above all, keep an open heart toward yourself and others as you own your life. Own it.

Soulbyte for Tuesday August 14, 2018

Minimize distractions and energy drains in your life. Simplify so that your energy is not drawn from you nor compromised by too much. Let yourself release that which is no longer helpful or really necessary so you free up energy for that which is. Think of yourself as a battery that needs constant recharging so that you function properly. Only the finest energy input will do! Soothe your mind to stay calm day and night. Soothe your body and your soul with appropriate calming methods, food, and peaceful input. In this manner begin to notice just how much energy gets drained unnecessarily and how much renewed you are by appropriate attention to the whole self: body, mind, and spirit. In calm alignment, with energy protected and tended to, renew your vows to carry on in a new manner. That’s intent!

Don’t say you can’t, because you can! Don’t say you won’t, because you will! Don’t dismiss your power, because indeed you contain it! Walk the path that has been carved for you. Do it willingly, certain that you have all the abilities you need to do so, keeping them foremost in your mind and heart, keeping your power firmly centered, knowing that all the energy you need as you take your journey forward is within you. You have no other life but this one. This is your life, your body, your spirit, your chosen path in this lifetime. This is it. Accept it, but also choose to live it to the fullest, with all you’ve got. Give it your all so that life does not take your energy but provides you with all it’s got to give in return, for indeed there is much to be had. Discover every golden nuance about yourself as you walk your path, and don’t forget to enjoy every moment of it!

Soulbyte for Monday April 16, 2018

Let go of old ideas of the self and the world. Embrace your fullness, your human potential, which is limited only by the limiting thoughts conjured up by your mind. That which can be expansive and all-encompassing can also be small and limiting. And yet your spirit takes you on journeys every night that the mind cannot fathom. Let your dreaming self show you your fuller human potential. Discover your true self and the possibilities that consciousness without restriction make possible. Embrace your fullness. Dream on.

Chuck’s Place: Spiritual Instinct

Spent some time in the Deep South. Couldn’t help but be impressed by the preponderance of churches, congregations, assemblies, and conversations that ended in “bless you.”

Driving along, taking it all in, we were 30 miles from our next adventure, a week long immersion in out-of-body experience, for us the ultimate spiritual experience.

Something in the human being cries out for spiritual experience. On this one I’m quite certain Freud had it wrong. Spirituality is more than just a by-product, a sublimation of frustrated sexuality. We are spirit as well as animal beings. We are more than our physical bodies!

We are indeed beings whose animal self will die. Like some of the Shamans of Ancient Mexico accomplished, our species will find ways to extend our animal life for perhaps hundreds or even thousands of years, but eventually it will end.

Of course we covet life in the body. Why else would we find ourselves on this planet, land of opportunity? And that opportunity is the completion of a dream; beginning, middle, and end. Beyond that is more and more dreams, adventures without end. The great challenge is to complete the current dream and leap forward with awareness.

Were we but animals we would follow nature’s program as animals show us to do in their very orderly preparation for death. But our spirit self becomes so attached to the peoples and things of this world that it struggles mercilessly not to let go of this amazing life in time and space, to allow our dreams to unfold in new ways.

We are the active side of God, we are the seeds of possibility, living, feeling, failing, succeeding, developing and sensing in new ways the realization of infinite possibilities. All those possibilities are equal; success is as real a dream as failure, no judgment.

Our spiritual instinct gets caught in attachment to the physical. Our challenge in this life is to open up to our full spiritual nature. We are soul beings who travel endlessly in infinity, exploring love in all its possibilities. To reach this experience we must get beyond the veil of love existing only in the form of physical attachment in this life.

We are prompted by our spirit throughout our lives to awaken to this fuller truth, and this is the greatest challenge in this life. Pain and death are part of the loving path. They must be experienced, they must be mastered before the veil fully lifts.

Along the way are experiences of life and love beyond the body. It happens every night in dreaming. Hold the intent gently to explore that realm with consciousness as you go off to sleep. Repeat it every night. Eventually the door will open.

And then you won’t need to believe, you will know.

Sweet dreams,
