"God's presence is maintained by the heart and by love, not by speech and words."
- Brother Lawrence

Hola Chica!

Here are some of the meditation 'troubleshooting' questions addressed during this week's livestream: 

1. How to slow or stop thoughts 
2. Should I use a mantra? Which one? 
3. What is meditating on the Presence of God?

My sharings come from direct experience and my background in the non-dual Christian and Hindu (Advaita Vedanta) traditions. 



The Power of Feeling Go(o)d, Now!



In ‘09, I was all about ‘The Secret’... positive thinking... the law of attraction. My limited understanding led me to believe that human excitement and happiness would ‘attract’ the stuff I wanted, and so I set out on the impossible mission of staying in a super elevated mood. I’d be good for a couple of days, and then frustration, anger, or stress would come to visit and I’d feel even worse, because I was mad at myself for being mad. The definition of insanity.

10 years later, after hundreds of books and countless hours of daily meditation, I came to view both human excitement and human sadness as deviations... distractions from a truer experience. Beneath the thoughts, and familiar ‘good’ and ‘bad’ emotions is a subtle vibration of peaceful-joy. It’s been called your ‘home vibration’ or the way your soul expresses in your body. It’s a God feeling that transcends even your best good feeling. It’s a flow, a glow, a warmth, an unconditional, uncaused loving silence.

When You Heal Yourself You Heal The World

When we were taught to ‘love our neighbor as ourself’, it largely went in one ear and out the other. At best, we’ve failed trying to live up to it... because it’s ‘me’... my life, my body, my circumstances that feels most important. But where does that feeling come from? This feeling of ‘primary-ness’... of all-importance?

This familiar but commonly overlooked sense of aliveness in the body, the way you know you exist, isn’t personal. It isn’t evidence of you, the individual. It is LOVE... GOD announcing itself. That’s why it feels important! Cause it is. It’s just not ‘yours’! It is the great ‘I Am’. And then we feel It and say, ‘I am Nikki’, or ‘I am Lisa.’ But the I Am is... It was, and always will be, the formless manifesting in and as every form.
