10 Ideas for Life



  •  - It is the healing energy of life
  •  - Often we hold onto being right – rather than let Love flow

#2 - TRUST GOD’S IN (inside everything)

  •  - God is the Manifest Universe
  •  - Eternally present in, through, and as all

#3 - HONOR THE SACRED (rituals)

  •  - Rituals point to the meaning and sacredness of life
  •  - All life is sacred


  •  - Be real about what it taking place in your life
  •  - What is real for you?


  •  - Books/classes/workshops open the door to truth
  •  - But the answer is ultimately found within (the Seeker is the Ego)


  •  - All forms of Life are God expressing
  •  - We don’t get mad at a flower for being a flower – let people be who they are

#7 - LAUGH

  •  - Sacred does not mean Serious
  •  - Laughing at our challenges or the paradoxes in life keeps things in perspective

#8 - STOP THINKING (start being)

  •  - Thinking – is doing. While the mind is a great tool, it is not creative
  •  - Egoic thinking is a barrier to Truth/God


  •  - Adyashanti said we “hide behind time”
  •  - Now is the time to step into the changes that are calling you

#10 - IT’S OKAY TO BE YOU (know thyself)

  •  - You might as well be you – everyone else is taken
  •  - Others might not “get you” but God “gets you”
