Embracing our Fear of Intimacy

  The single greatest factor that holds most of us back from being the person we would love to be, who lives the life we would love to live ... is FEAR. And when it comes to our intimate relationships, fear can raise it's head big time. Most everyone I know feels some fear of … Continue reading Embracing our Fear of Intimacy

The Choice of Non-dual Devotion

True devotion is choosing to rest attention into, and ultimately as, the silence of our mutual One Heart. To live in freedom we must consciously choose to love our Heart-Self, whose nature is freedom, more than we want the pleasures of the world. True devotion is not a conceptual thought – such as "I am … Continue reading The Choice of Non-dual Devotion

The Fulfillment Process

Conscious Love Intelligence

The Assume the Change meditation is a radically different approach to manifesting change in our lives than any other method that I know of. The manifestation teachings that are out in the world revolve primarily, and often exclusively, on teaching the practitioner that they can "get whatever they want". These false teachings play to human … Continue reading Conscious Love Intelligence

The Fulfillment Process

Create Your Life from Love

There are a number of principles, and a fundamental paradigm shift, that set the Assume the Change meditation apart from other manifestation processes. As far as I know it is unique. So, because the process is so different, I've written this Silent Wisdom post to give you a context for listening to the guided Assume … Continue reading Create Your Life from Love

Along the way my intention is to elaborate on the principles of living … Continue reading What is the “Silent Wisdom” blog?

Heartful self-compassion

The way I see life is that we humans are rather like fish who live in an ocean. When the they are swimming around in the ocean, they probably don't think too much about it, it's just so obvious to them. Similarly, we have our existence in an ocean of consciousness whose very nature is … Continue reading Heartful self-compassion

A lifetime of pleasure cannot compare to a single moment of true love

A Great Love

How can a relationship weather the storms, even hurricanes, of conditioned thoughts and emotions that inevitably arise when two people come together in intimacy? The answer in my experience is unconditional Conscious Love. Nothing else has the power to take us through the emotional storms to the peace, joy and freedom that await us just … Continue reading A Great Love

What is a “Soulmate”?

When we're talking about soul, what do we actually mean by "soul"? To me, soul is consciousness, awareness, being, who we are, literally who we are in the truth and reality of the "IS-ness" of spiritual consciousness that is prior to and yet includes our human embodiment. This soul consciousness is timeless, formless, spaceless – … Continue reading What is a “Soulmate”?

Who am I to Write about Relationships?

My guess is there are a number of women in this world who would raise an eyebrow or two at the thought of me having the audacity to write about intimate relationships. But, as Chuck Spezzano once said, "Our greatest challenge is our greatest gift". So it was that, after a lifetime of often painful … Continue reading Who am I to Write about Relationships?
