Trusting the Process

In order to advance spiritually, we do need to open in trust to the inner guidance that is intent on bringing you back home to your undivided true nature. In this meeting, you are invited more fully into letting go of control, so that divine intelligence can support your inner unfoldment.

A poem from Shar which emerged following the online meeting:

One day walking life, next moment walking life. One day loving life, next moment loving life.
Breathe, fill the lungs & release. Same day every day, yet, each day blossoms so differently.
As rhythm of moment blossoms so differently.
Once you walk through the door. Life is life, yet life not life.
The one that angered, now let go of. The one that irritated, now let go of.
Mind now a moment passing away.
Mind another day lived, another day loved, another day being home as is,
no holding, just living wildly.

poem- Sharkatana

 

 

Crisis, Transformation & Integration

Susanne and friends exploring the topic of how the impact of crisis can be met within the realm of awakening. Living our daily lives under ordinary conditions, when the unexpected never materializes and is very far from our active mind, often doesn’t reveal undiscovered territory within one’s conditioning.

This reveals itself in its full, if often unwanted, glory when a major incident takes place. The opportunity held within such times of one’s life unearths hidden patterns leading to reactions and behaviors that jump at the opportunity to come to the light and be transformed. Perhaps the first blessing of a major life altering event is being stopped so fully that there is no option other than being fully present to the moment. Another is encountering the beautiful human spirit of generosity and kindness that can help redeem one and in turn open one’s heart.

Similarly, pain and crisis can invite vast reservoirs of capacity to open in surrender to the moment, helping us to see how much we have benefited from realizations and personal work. It is a blessing to be benefited by the grace arising out of deep spiritual work. It is like having a spiritual piggy bank that comes in handy when faced with challenging times.

Celebrating Our Interconnection

Our desire to remember the truth of our being and the fact that we are one with life, is the spiritual seekers journey. In honor of Earth Day (and everyday), we take the opportunity to remember together our interconnection. Coming back to our true nature is for the most part an individual journey, and yet there are times when community (Sangha), is highly supportive.

There is real connective power contained in group energy, and when the intention is in alignment with opening to Truth, the vibration creates a field in assisting awakening. This is why the Buddha said that it takes: Buddha, Sangha, and Dharma (truth), to wake up to our being.

The Essential Practice of Stopping

Whether you are an advanced practitioner, or just entering the spiritual stream, one can always use the simple (yet profound), essential teaching of: Stop, Rest, & Allow.

It is easy to get caught up with flowery or complicated pointers, thinking that realization must be difficult to attain and in the end, meant for the few.

This is not true. But it does take a certain type of dedication and willingness to unstrip oneself of imagination and avoid the tendency to complicate things, which puts awakening into time.

Divine Immanence

Divinity dwells within everything in existence. Every rock, tree, creature, and human being is an expression of divine intelligence, incarnate. Earth is birthed out of That and is on her own evolutionary journey, as is the Sun, and each unique soul.

Everything in creation is life in evolution, growing in awareness of what is possible. God is composed of both its transcendent eternal nature, as well as imminent within manifestation. Without form, spirit does not know itself, and has no capacity to expand, deepen, and grow.

Remembering for ourselves the sacredness and value of being here, supports our own incarnation as unique souls, as we are divine sparks emerging out of the cauldron of spirit.

Guided Meditation By Susanne Marie: Alchemy

The rise and fall of the sense of you emerges out of the vast ocean of Self. Dropping below labels and becoming the dancing molecules of vibration, allows you to become more diffused with your sense of self, opening you up to inner harmonization and liberation. The true meaning of alchemy is going from the gross to the subtle, and the transformational process that ensues.

Recorded live at Susanne’s Taos Retreat, September 2022.

There is No Center to Me

The first step in non-dual realization is discovering that there is no center to the sense of ‘me’. This understanding grows the more we let go into the unknown.

A Period of Deconstruction

For many there is a transitional time between feeling like a ‘doer’ and living life without having a sense of self. This is a period of deconstruction where what we have taken to be falsely true about ourselves and the world goes through a filtering process, so that what is real can emerge and be lived.
