Contemplation – is the root of inspiration,our truth and true essence. We can contemplate any issue or challenge and gain deeper understanding - that illuminates the right action to take.
Contemplation guides us to our real purpose, our deepest knowing and wisdom. Life’s pressing questions can be asked in contemplation and answers arise providing a beacon of light, a revelation, a new perspective of what we could not see before.
For years we can be a rut, as our mind loops in the same groove. Rather than recognizing we need to shift our thoughts and beliefs, we believe these pent-up feelings; locked-in behavioral patterns are ‘who we are ‘who we should be’ and that there is no way out. We are fearful to take a step forward and disturb the familiar--our stuck-ness.
We go through life, racing about, with racing minds, on a treadmill that keeps us from experiencing an enlivened and fulfilled life. Lack of purpose: why are you living? What is meaningful to you has dimmed.
To reclaim our magnificence, meditation and quieting the mind is necessary. Practicing the Light Breath technique offered- you can prepare your mind, open your intuition, and expand Awareness.
You can relax, distresses the physical body to a sub-cellular level. It is from this level that we can heal ourselves – mentally, emotionally and physically.
1. In quietude…allow what is troubling you to surface. If several challenges arise, focus on one issue. Write down the different aspects that are involved. ‘Who, what, where, when?
2. Begin the Light Breath technique, slipping into a relaxed, receptive state. This is where infinite intelligence resides, beyond normal thought into the realm of intuition, the all knowing.
3. Ask for guidance, for the answers that will serve your highest good.
4. Incubate- Trust the vibration, the energy of this quiet stillness to permeate you. Without thought or judgment, allow yourself to bathe in the energy. Even if you nod off, allow yourself to go with the energy into the field.
5. Images, sensations, words may surface. You may sense a solution, to take proactive steps in addressing your challenge.
6. Know that all you need to know is there; an answer, a solution revealed in the right time- to act upon.

The Way..the Tao, Christ energy, Buddha, Kabala… all great teachings lead us to the same place - a Light Heart path- the place of inner peace and joy- our divine birthright. We are born to know this truth that is eternal, blessed of SELF…that which we are seeking.
In everyday life challenges we feel heaviness; we believe that carrying an endless weight of worry, stress, and pain is what we must endure. We accept this as truth, and we go on living in misconception. Childhood wounds and misunderstanding continue into adulthood forming limited, binding habits of being.
We busy ourselves with addictions, distractions, attempting to numb the longing in our hearts to be wholly, to be free of this bondage. No matter how rich, how accomplished, how revered…inside we know something is missing. Our very essence is dim, our light force short circuits into apathy, confusion or halfhearted resolve.
In moments of vulnerability we contemplate, “Why aren’t I happy… I have everything, yet I feel I have nothing?” Emptiness pervades inside of us: to quell this longing we continue the pursuit of happiness, seeking pleasure from external gratification. Hitting the wall of disappoint you ponder, “Maybe if I find a loved one, have children, find fame or fortune, or drop out of worldly pleasures I will be ok.”
Yes, you will be OK. Yes, there is a way to Light Heart Path: and it is very near, very obtainable. It is inside of you, waiting; always there. It always has been and it always will be…it is you, the magnificent ONE , without abandon, calling you home.
Accept one simple truth as ultimate solution: “Be still and Know that you are the God-Self”, the eternal One. With this Awareness, tune-in to the silence that rests inside, YOU are wholly.
