It’s Never Too Late

by Aranka Urban

It’s sometimes the smallest of events that make the biggest difference. Every day we take actions that are seemingly mundane or casual, with no expectation that something great will emerge. But that’s precisely when it sometimes does. And that’s when our minds and hearts soar beyond the assumptions of life and who we thought we were. In truth, we just have no idea what we’re capable of until we try. […] Read more »

Playing with Fire

“Only love, only love, only love,  how many times must I tell you before you jump into the fire!”    Rumi I have loved these words from the brilliant soul of the great Sufi poet. To me, they are a clarion call to abandon, to leap with faith and give all of yourself to Divine love – no matter what! Love is only frightening before you leap. Living this side of the […] Read more »

Spiritual Fence-Sitting is Not a Balancing Act

sitting on the fence

Do you feel like your fence-sitting? You don’t align with the polarity of darkness, and you do actively align with Light, but still it may seem as though you are not whole-heartedly choosing your God-self to lead you in your living. So you sit somewhere in between letting ego take charge now and then, and also consciously aligning with Light now and then. For the most part it feels as […] Read more »

A Journey to Home

merkaba

Ascension is the movement of your consciousness from your personality program to your effortless, magical, authentic nature. But many fear being luminous in their Light and standing out, falsely believing that this will intensify the separation consciousness which already tears at the heart’s peace – feelings of not belonging and aloneness. But nothing could be further from the truth because your ascension is the fulfillment of your core purpose: to […] Read more »

Are You Choosing Courage?

Ghandi

We are living in a time that calls for our courage. This is a beckoning to our hearts, not our minds. Courage wells from a deep commitment within to create change. It does not involve any pushing, only the trust of Divine support through and through. Courage is often misconstrued. We tend to think of needing to find courage for formidable circumstances, those that we view as herculean in nature […] Read more »

Crisis to Christed – a love story

devastation in Japan

This article was written in March of 2011. Japan still needs our love and awareness of the truth of the situation. Like many people in the global community, I have been keeping myself informed of the multiple difficulties facing the people of Japan following the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear crisis. In this dismantling and clearing of old energies they are surely bearing tremendous loss. Yet, in the face of […] Read more »

Earth Speaks Her Peace

We celebrate Earth Day in April of each year. It’s a time to raise our consciousness to hers and be mindful of our relationship. Hopefully, for even five minutes, we pause to personally thank her and perhaps reflect on whether we have been friends or foes. Do we treat her kindly or disregard her needs as she meets ours?  So it felt right to let Earth speak. She reminds us that we are, without a doubt, more […] Read more »

The Divine Design of Dying

fading face

The summer winds down. The new school years begins, and work resumes in earnest. The leaves begin to turn, and nature reminds us that “to everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose, under heaven….a time to be born, a time to die.” Or perhaps the lyrics from this 50’s song by Pete Seeger could be “….a time to die, a time to be reborn…”.  That, of course, would depend […] Read more »

Storm Warning: pause for peace

snow storm

I look out the window to see millions of snowflakes falling, straight down to the ground. No whipping wind, just a purposeful dance. I am grateful. I can feel its calm, slowing the movements of everything around, muffling its sounds. I sense urgency downshift in my mind. Today will be unhurried. The past few weeks have been busy for me. They have been joyful, but they have pulled my energies outward into the world, while my Higher Self […] Read more »
