Behind the scenes where the stars are made

When sadness calls, when confusion appears, when shame arrives, when anxiety comes for tea, do not mistake them for ordinary visitors, for they have been sent from beyond. Each emerges out of the unknown offering an invitation for you to take a sacred pilgrimage. If you accept, you are taken on a journey into the cells of your own heart, through the strands of your DNA, sailing down the holy river that is your own body. You are bewildered as you are now behind the scenes where the stars are made, which is inside you. You see that love is washing your organs, filling you with its essence, and preparing your senses for what is next.

It may seem like an ordinary Wednesday, but there is nothing ordinary here; everything that appears is lit up from the inside by luminous particles of awareness. Love calls out: please come to know the experience that has been given to you, right here, right now, as it is. You need not seek any other; you need not exit into some “higher” state of consciousness, into some fable of awakening, or into the grace that you have been told will come in the future. Stay here, stay close, and allow me all the way inside.

    1. Thank you, Joseph - it's nice to hear from you; I hope you're doing well.

  2. Matt, your words are, again, so appreciated. That impulse to transcend the present "negative" state is so automatic...wonderful to remember that there is a constant invitation to warmly welcome it all.


    1. It's good to hear from you, Tam, and thank you for stopping by. Yes, that impulse is wired in at such a deep level, to turn from immediate, embodied experience. And really is a counter-instinctual process to turn all the way in, and to see that even the most disturbing thoughts, feelings, and emotions are often not what we think. And that they are invitations, pathways, really to knowing something very unique about who and what we are. Take care...
