"Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art" ~Leonardo da Vinci

My heart dwells in the spirit of love and I try my best to convey that spirit in all that I do. I believe that this world is not my home and that I am here as a visitor to learn the spirit of love in its many manifestations. Stephen R. Covey said, "We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey. I believe that an individual who can embrace that reality as their own can transcend the density of this lower physical vibration and rise above the great illusion of separateness to see that we are all one. It is my hope that anyone who ventures onto this page will perceive this spirit of love and take away an experience that helps their own progression in self understanding and love.

My Mother's Spirit

Two years ago today, my beloved mother, Robbie, departed from this physical life.  She died in the hospital where she spent the last week of her life slowly succumbing to the effects of what would eventually be diagnosed as pancreatic cancer.  But this post isn't about Mom's death.  This post is about her spirit and how she continues to live on in those of us who loved her.

I have seen her in dreams where she told me that she now "travels by satellite" and that some of the answers  I'm looking for are in the "book of Numbers".  When I asked if she could show me where she lives now, she answered "yes" and showed herself to me as a brilliant blue star cluster in some other galaxy in the universe. She pointed out that I would one day be the red cluster next to her and then lovingly conveyed to me that I had to leave as she sent me flying backwards through a couple galaxies and back to earth.  In my wildest imagination this is NOT what I had invisioned. I was picturing beautiful, mist-kissed gardens filled with flowers, singing birds and streets of gold.  But what do I know?

Mom stopped by to see me a couple weeks ago.  I was in the kitchen making a horrible mess as I tried to make chicken and dumplings for the first time in years.  The chicken was no problem but the dumplings were a different story.  There were spoons and measuring cups and flour everwhere, and the dough was not being cooperative.  Suddenly, Mom popped in right next to the stove, hands perched on her hips just like she used to,. She laughed heartedly at me as she asked, "WHAT are you doing?"  (Mom could absolutely throw down a pot of dumplings!)  I returned her good natured chiding and after assuring me I could rescue my efforts, she gave me a "thumb's up" before going her own way. It was great to hang out with her for those couple of minutes.  The dumplings were proclaimed to be "delicious comfort food" by my gracious husband, Keith.  I thought they sucked but I was glad I had made them because it had given me a wonderful, brief reunion with Mom.

This physical life is a precious experience, indeed. We live, laugh and love with each other, often unsuspecting of how quickly life can end.  I miss the physical presence of my mom. I miss touching her and kissing her.  I miss the way her face lit up when she saw me, and yes, I still shed a tear or two from a particularly tender memory.  But let us remember that we are NOT physical beings having spiritual experiences.  We are SPIRITUAL beings manifest here in physical form to experience that which we can not experience in the spirit realm.  And if being a spirt means the opportunity to really live among the stars, then death just isn't that big a deal.

The Nature of Reality

I think there are basically two types of people: those who are constantly seeking truth in an effort to evolve their conscious-ness and fullfill what it is they're here to accomplish, and those who are content to live out their existence in a domesticated state of excepting whatever is put before them as truth and reality.

I fall into the first category.  It's been my nature to observe and question my perceptions of reality for as long as I can remember, and my interests have long been devoted to those things unseen by our limited physical vision.  It has never made sense to me that our existence is limited to the sole purpose of working, raising families and acquiring material things.  So my quest for truth has been a long journey and I continue to strive for understanding in the evolution of my consciousness.

My journey over the last 20 years has brought me closer to what I perceive to be the true nature of our existence than ever before.   Easy access to the internet has exposed me to ideas and people from all over the world in every perceivable discipline, and I've read a plethora of books by brilliant authors. It's through the studies and philosophies of some of these people that I have found answers that make sense to me.  I don't have all the answers for myself, and I certainly don't have any answers for you.  What I do have to offer to you is a place to share ideas and offer your own unique view of reality, and my own resources and experiences that I offer to you as an aid in your own journey.

There are several things that I'm absolutely certain of.  The first is that more and more people are awakening to the nature of reality and realizing that we are spiritual beings on a human journey.  The second thing I'm certain of is that love is the only absolute truth. The third thing I'm certain of is that things I believe to be true today may not be things I believe to be true tomorrow.  That's the nature of growth and evolution.  The last thing I'm certain of is that you and I have unique views to share and that we can learn from each other in this wonderful journey we call life.
