The Overself’s Presence

Do not think so much of looking for help outside as guidance is always within you. Your Higher Self is with you. If you could have enough faith in it’s presence, you could look inwards. With persistence and patience, it will guide you.

The Dark Night Of The Soul

Passing through the dark night of the soul is a rite of passage. It is a personal journey with it’s power known only to one who has the courage to walk through it. As one is blessed enough to experience such a journey, it’s characteristics are unmistaken. At times its lonely, but always pulls at our deepest core urging us to learn it’s sacred teachings. When we are confronted with our deceptions, manipulations, and hidden secrets, that only we know. We are asked, or prodded, to live with more integrity and trust that which is not yet known.

We walk through it for a reason. It’s no accident when we are at this point and there is no way to rush it’s end.

It’s a rite of passage whereby we are strengthened and live with a deeper sense of “I Am”. Once we abandon the question, “How long?” we accept and allow the darkness to run its course. In many ways we befriend the nowness and become one with its power. We become grateful for its lessons and realize fear has been replaced with personal power. Fear loses its grip for the sacred one who walks through the dark night of the soul.

Everything – all things that happen are for our Highest Good. The more we trust its flow, and not resist, the easier the journey becomes. As challenging as it may be, the dark night of the soul is to be honoured and cherished as a vast mystery that will eventually be revealed to us. It is here to teach us a most marvellous awakening.

The Big Question

Ask the universe: “Okay, what do you want me to do?” Try and keep a dated record of the responses, the first sentences that flash into your mind. Don’t think just write.


  • I want you to listen.

The moment of awakening

“The moment of awakening may be marked
by an outburst of laughter, but this is not the
laughter of someone who has won the lottery
or some kind of victory. It is the laughter of one
who, after searching for something for a long time,
suddenly finds it in his coat pocket”

Thich Nhat Hanh, “ZEN KEYS”

What is karma?

Karma has many different names, such as fate, destiny, the law of attraction, what goes around comes around, you reap what you sow, everything comes full circle, like attracts like, the ebb and flow, and balance in the universe. Karma is an auto effect or consequence.

Karma means  that there is no such thing as a coincidence, accident, random event, luck or chaos. Everything happens exactly as it needs to be according to what we make ourselves to be. Absolutely every little thing, good and bad, eventually catches up to us. There is no outside cause of anything. Everything is happening spontaneously on it’s own as an automated consequence.

But karma isn’t just the negative kind. It’s total balance in the universe. Something positive or negative is only going to happen if their karma calls for it. In other words, the world is safe and there is nothing to worry about because everything is self-created and brought about by oneself.

What’s going to happen will happen and there is no way to avoid it. One way or another, karma must be worked out. So live happily by choosing to be happy despite life’s circumstances, be kind to others and work on changing yourself inwardly instead of constantly reacting negatively to outside circumstances.

Letting Go

According to Japanese legend, two monks were walking down the road when they saw a finely dressed young woman standing before a large mud puddle. She explained that she had no way of crossing the water without ruining her clothes. Without saying a word, the fist monk picked her up in his arms and lifted her safely across.

A few hours later the second monk said in an accusatory tone, “How could you have picked up that lady? Don’t you know that the rules strictly forbid us to touch a member of the opposite sex?” His friend smiled and then replied, “I pit the woman down back at the puddle, are you still carrying her?”

Like the second monk, many of us are still carrying old hurts, resentment, and lost opportunities that we picked up many mud puddles ago. As long as we remain stuck in the past, we cannot hear the inner voice which speaks to us in the present. Thus, in order to tap our in-tuition, we need to release and heal our issues.

By following the example of the first monk, we can put the past down and continue. See your past experiences as teachings that have guided you precisely to this present moment.
