As usual with these articles, the big liveliness is in the COMMENTS.
As often happens, this post began on one theme and morphed into something quite different. In this case, the conversation changed because of a powerful teaching moment set in motion by a brave reader, EMILYH in her Comment #16.
And that’s Reason #1 why I’m loving our journey together into “Deeper Perception Made Practical.”
Let’s play a game of “Twister” with our minds today — those of us who are in the mood for some Enlightenment coaching.
Today, at his blog “Observations on the Way Home,” our Blog-Buddy David Buckland published a short but pithy post about “Ignorance.”
You can read this in all its glory by clicking on that link just provided. My version goes, “From a spiritual perspective, ignorance does not exist. Hunting it down will not help. Just bring in the light.”
Enlightenment Through Understanding Truths of Consciousness
I got such a kick out of DAVID B.’s article because it highlights for me the difference between a consciousness perspective for those seeking Enlightenment and the human-based perspective of this Enlightenment coach. CONTINUE READING →
Finally my garden looks perfect, no weeding required.
Every inch of the garden twinkles, aglow with a pristine white perfection. Because a fresh snowfall brings many blessings, and that is one.
Yet a certain garden-area chore still needs to be done. Blog-Buddies, unless you’re living on Mars, I’ll bet that you know what it is.
Shoveling snow? We’re ready.
Armed with sturdy shovels, my husband Mitch and I take turns. We’re scooping out a path from the house to the street. One small strip to begin, with more clearing to come in the hours and days to follow.
According to the weather forecast, however much show has already landed and stuck — at least that much more will come. Shoveling is to become a way of life for us, lasting a couple of days, at least.
“Words cannot describe the joy of this shoveling experience.”
I have a dream too. On America’s only national holiday dedicated to a person of faith and visionary social courage, I have a big dream.
It begins with a dream that America will progress rapidly towards accepting the equality of all people in our country. Black lives do matter, and it’s time that some Americans stopped projecting their worst fears onto people with darker skin.
Latino lives matter also, and Asian-American lives, and the lives of Native Americans; biracial lives and white lives — all our lives matter.
A dream can make a person hungry. I am hungry for us to recognize how all of us belong to the ethnic group called “Human.” And then behave accordingly.
This part of my dream, even the hunger, is not unusual. But here comes the part that is. CONTINUE READING →
The winner has been selected, LORI RUBENSTEIN. Together we have set a date for her to claim her prize, receiving a personal session of Thrill Your Soul Aura Research. This will be recorded for all to hear and enjoy.
Announcing this, I also have an opportunity to share with all of you one of the themes that you’ll be reading about here at the blog in 2016: Moving forward with using deeper perception in practical ways that work best (seems to me) in this Age of Awakening.
For my little family (husband Mitch, son Matt, and me) amusement parks have often been an official source of amusement. In 2011 we headed to Universal Orlando in search of the newish “Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” with a re-creation of the castle at Hogwarts.
Such fun! Towards the end of last year I heard about an addition to the park, complete with a magical trainride to Diagon Alley and a fire-breathing dragon that belches out fire regularly at 10-minute intervals.
All it took was one mention of my interest to Mitch and he planned a trip. I’m starting this blog post at the Orlando airport, waiting to return to Virginia and suffused with the special satisfaction of a short vacation beautifully planned, joyfully executed, and even punctuated by briskly-falling rain (just as we were leaving).
More about this trip was different for me than the new attractions: Having crossed the threshold into Enlightenment. Several points of comparison have occurred to me, and I thought you Blog-Buddies might find it interesting to read a bit about that… as “Enlightenment at the Amusement Park” has hardly been celebrated in traditional writings about consciousness.

Gee, we’re so close to year’s end that I almost named this blog post “What I Learned in 2015 as an Enlightenment Coach.” But there’s plenty more learning left, no doubt. Witness the surge of joy I feel about adding today’s article.
For fun, I’ll use a Q&A format. (BTW, for background you might wish to read the guest post and spirited comments here inspiring today’s post, JEFFREY’s wonderful guest post about God in Disguise)
Isn’t There Really Just One Kind of Enlightenment?
Only if you prefer an answer without nuance.
Which could be a beautiful reason, because why mess with perfection?
One example might be… if your joy and delight make it seem as though there couldn’t possibly be any other kind. CONTINUE READING →
Thanks to my friend JEFFREY CHAPPELL for sharing this article here. You’ll see his blog, answersfromsilence.com, on the short list of blogroll links always here… find it on the right side of your screen.
As I continue my journey as an Enlightenment Coach in the Age of Awakening, as some of you know, I make a distinction between a Householder Model of Enlightenment and a Simplicity Model of Enlightenment (also sometimes called a Renunciate Model of Enlightenment).
In the Simplicity Model of Enlightenment, consciousness is what matters most. Hence the suitability for a Renunciate Lifestyle. Even if a householder lives this way, emphasizing consciousness, this is the traditional model of Enlightenment. And, to many, it is the only model that matters.
By contrast, in Householder Enlightenment, the human life matters most. With the sacred and stable Divine connection always available, yet it is usually kept in the background. More like the saying, “God is in the details.”
As millions of people move into Enlightenment in this Age of Awakening, it is time for a model of Enlightenment that speaks to our new role in this upgraded planet. Recognizing that is part of my unfolding work as an Enlightenment Coach.
