Word To The Mother

When I was in high school I rarely connected sex to making babies or growing the heritage of families. Likely, because I was a baby myself. Fierce, frisky and a wild child I thought of pregnancy as an unfortunate side effect that could strike down even the bravest and boldest of us Generation Y-ers. Very similar to how I might accidentally ding my rearview taillight while reversing in the high school parking lot post-track meet. I was cavalier to such a point that my blasé approach to conception-free sex was how I thought the biological system worked. I figured that the world was made for enjoyment and playfulness. At least that’s how my petri-dish, microcosm snapshot of life appeared. My existence was filled with young love, laughter and exploration. This was compounded by my rapidly maturing body and an immature teenage frontal lobe.

Learn How To Live Worry-Free!

I vividly remember the exact afternoon I heard the first notes of reggae music. I was perched on the cliffs with childhood girlfriends overlooking the sparkling Pacific Ocean. When the music came on I was beyond taken with it. It went straight to my mainline and my heartbeat permanently shifted to that of a crisp roots rhythm guitar. I was awash in the sweet sound. As the honorable Robert Nesta Marley said, “One good thing about music is when it hits you, you feel no pain.”

Reggae has a pure, positive vibe to it. It matches me perfectly. It was me living a sun-soaked, bikini-laden, sandy feet, beachside youth in Southern California. It was my college nights in dreary, dreamy London-town, with the strong Jamaican influx of roots and ragga music banging from beneath the cobblestone street basement clubs. Reggae was always more than a sing-a-long at a summer time concert or a fat dub bass line mixed with keyboard and brass horns for me; it was a happy reminder of life being joyful, easy and fun.

A lot of the pure reggae vibes, barring some dark horses like Peter Tosh and a handful of fiery young bloods, are steeped in positivity and have that signature Caribbean, Polynesian, South American as well as New Zealand and Australian heritages of, “No worries. Easy now. Hang loose. No problemo. Shaka bra. I’ve got nothing but love for me bredren and sistren.” The lyrics are inclusive. All accepting. All loving. All’s good. Mix in a little sass of, “Cock up yuh bumper, sit down pon it,” and you’ve got an anthem brewing.

This is the aspect that always kept me returning. Positivity plus the coined, “No worries.” I took that notion to heart. Yet, I also had my feet very firmly planted on the ground and wondered to myself, “With all do respect for the forefathers of this rad music revolution, do they actually think there are no worries in life?” Really, no worries? Zero. How do they do that?

Even though I was young and my life was peachy keen even I recognized that the world seemed to hold an ongoing series of problems and troubles. “How can you truly have no worries?” I wondered. I laughingly concluded that these raggamuffins must be high on herbal sacrament to such a large degree that their exclusive daily responsibility was just to collect tropical fruits and spearfish for dinner. They, in fact, were so very worry-free that they casually rocked bellbottom jeans when it was 96 degrees in the shade. I’m generalizing, of course, but the “no worries” essence always kept me curious. It can’t be that simple as just saying it even in sweet harmonization, I thought.

I kept on skanking. Kept on growing. Kept on living. Kept on keeping on. Problems came and problems went. Money came, money went; money came again. Lovers came, went and came again. Life was very good to me, much to give thanks for, and yet the low hum level of worry ran beneath the soundtrack of my life. This was despite the fact that I was a generally very positive and blessed person. Having worries given how lovely my landscape was seemed strange to me even though it is very much the accepted norm for most people. Now I know from my beloved Meditation Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane, “That what passes for normal in this world is actually crazy.”

I never thought to look within for the glowing and flowing freedom my heart was set on. Yet that is exactly what Dr. Lane has Taught me to do. Through immersing myself into the blissful Meditation Of The Light Of The Most High on a daily basis I have received wonderful experiences of steadfast calmness, laughter and humor, greater Blessings that I could have ever dreamed of, deep gratitude and a strong compass inside that knows my vessel is exactly where it needs to be.

This Meditation gives eternally. Ever living, ever faithful, ever sure. Even in my daily, mundane, waking moments everything is touched by the Light Of The Most High and made to shine in pure Joy. I am stoked. Living from this place is pure. Spirit just handles things for me. I feel as though I’m floating and my day-to-day life is so easy and grace-filled, like a concierge service is taking care of every detail. I am devotedly committed to keeping my inner environment clear and bright with the Love that I truly am through my Meditation practice. There is deep Devotion on my part and continual re-Commitment. Each moment. Each-and-every moment. There really, truly are no worries here. It is all Love and Love is all there is. It is ultimate Oneness, more so than any reggae ballad has ever conceived.

This is available to everyone. The most incredible, powerful thing in the world is within you. It is the Same as That Which is in me. The Soul. The Soul is Oneness. I & I, as the reggae vibes would hint at. In reality, we are all the Oneness. We just don’t know it. Until we do. It is the Oscillation of the Soul – Which is pure Love – in Divine Joy and Harmony. We are so blessed that we get to know This while we’re in the body, not after “death,” which is an illusion anyway, but right this moment as I listen to my favorite jams and enjoy a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. That’s the Immediacy of Spirit. I’ve learned very much through the Gift of Initiation, through the process of studying with Dr. Lane and through the Divine Experiences I’ve had while Meditating with The Light Of The Most High. The Soul in me is comprised of the same “material,” as it were, as That in Dr. Lane. The Teacher supports the student with great patience and Love. It is similar to if you were to learn a new language you would seek out a classroom and educator to guide you. Dr. Lane is deeply Committed to his Students and serving Them and welcomes all Students into the Meditation Studio, asking only that we Love God, Which is Loving ourSelves.

This is the ultimate egalitarian, equal rights, justice scenario. Dr. Lane Teaches that we are all deeply Loved. Infinitely. Beyond understanding. Regardless of what we do. Out beyond the field of wrong-doing and right-doing, as Rumi would say. We are implicitly perfect just as we are. Not on the physical level with our quirks nor on the emotional or mental with hot surges and circular thoughts. It’s the Soul within us. The part of us that is Perfect no matter what the outer circumstance is. It is the Essence of Who we really are. Even if we don’t know it. Similar to how gravity operates regardless of whether or not we acknowledge it, believe in it or can calculate it. It just is.

The good news is that you don’t have to understand anything to Receive. Start Meditating now by attending a Meditation at your local Center! Work with the Teacher, Dr. Lane, by requesting Initiation into the Sound Current On The Path Of Soul Transcendence! Do it all with a Loving heart and curiosity! You won’t have to take anyone’s word for anything. It’s all within. You’ll have direct experiences yourSelf. The system is that magical. Spirit customizes life for you to have the exact Learnings you need to Lift and Grow and know yourSelf as Soul. Cruise through the world with your focus on the Soul you are by Meditating and working with the Teacher and you will find that you are more powerful than you could have ever dreamed.

The sidekick, the byproduct of this awesome cocktail is that life become so easy, so joyful, so laughable that it is the best thing going. I can’t begin to describe how happy I am. How good the music sounds from this altitude! How everything just seems to happen for me and is better than I could have ever imagined! I smile. I am living the ride of my life. Irie I? You bet. No worries? Nah bra, not a single one. Immeasurable Love and natural mystic beyond words. Yes iyah.

The fire is blazing for you, too. Take the Gift if you’re reading this! Run with it and allow the Spirit you are to run the show. And rock steady to the sweet Sound of your Soul!

How To Find Love: Love From A Spiritual Perspective

You entertain the question mark inside you that punctuates, “How do I find love?” Maybe the latest dating app will offer a new forte of handsome suitors and amid that dapper crowd one single, perfect gentleman will sweep you off your feet. Maybe there’s a cute surfer boy living next door whose path you’ve never crossed before on his early morning barefoot walk down to the beach. Maybe the crush you had on a co-worker will come to sweet, suit and pocket square fruition when the autumn leaves start to turn.

Maybe so. Maybe not. In the meantime that whole situation involves a lot of wanting, yearning and placing the love outside of yourself, dependent on another person. I’ve been there. To a certain degree. Only when I’m down-and-out, which lasts a maximum of 20-minutes before I quickly sweep the submerged bits and pieces of myself up off the floor and set myself straight with a little update of the reality of the situation. And the reality is always the same. The reality is always Love. That there is a deep well of Love inside of me that already exists regardless of outer situation. It is inside all of us.

That Love is all-encompassing, irreplaceable, incandescent and irresistible, as my beloved Meditation Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane, says. Love is with me every moment. It is with me in every mili-moment and everything in between. And it’s been here all along. And it is with you too. So here’s my invitation. Move off the looking outside for the love. Looking at the café’s roundabout of people in the mid-morning sun for the man of your dreams. Scanning the airport’s periphery while heading to your gate for the eye-catching of a transatlantic James Bond. It’s so darn easy to have it become a project. To ever-more be a lady in waiting for the right fellow. Waiting and waiting and waiting.

What are we waiting for? Really. For another person to say that we’re adored? It is placing a lot of weight on someone else, with all their flaws and glory, to choose us. The other thing is that it rests squarely on the lie of pretending we’re empty and we need to be filled up. It also balances on the fulcrum of our thinking that we’re not already Loved. That’s the lie we tell ourselves.

Yet this is the micro for the macro of the human condition. It’s not a female storyline or a single person tragedy. We all do it in our own ways with our own cast of characters. If we knew how Loved we already are we’d not even be called to play these empty games of measuring our self-worth by other people’s responses, by how much money we have in the bank, by the degrees we have achieved and more. The truth is that the most immense Love you could ever imagine lives within you, as you. As Dr. Lane Teaches, the Soul inside of you is the same “material” as God. You are a Soul. And the Soul is the same as the Spirit that is God. You are That. You are Spirit. So why on earth would you look for love? It’s like being on a treasure hunt when you are the treasure. The greatest gift and Love you could ever imagine already lives inside of you!

To come to know this through a very natural Process called Initiation into The Sound Current on The Path of Soul Transcendence. By this Process the Soul in you is sparked Awake by the Sound Current Master who brings The Teachings of the Path of Soul Transcendence and you continue to unravel the gift by giving it to yourSelf through doing the Meditation Taught at the time of Initiation. It is simple and natural. It is how the Soul inside of you is Awakened and the inherent Love starts to flow.

When you live in Love then the dating, the career achievements, family relationships, business deals, being a parent, landscaping, playing sports, dinner out, going for your Ph.D. and all the things of this world are Opportunities to Lift and Grow. There are here for our enjoyment. Dating becomes the enjoyment of the company of your man. Additionally, you learn to rise above the rollercoaster of thoughts and feelings and become no longer identified with them and you are no longer at their mercy. You are God-Centered and there is so much Joy there. It is staying within yourself regardless of outer circumstances and you live in the expression of this Love. There is gratitude, kindness to others and yourSelf, there is deep peace and you harness your intrinsic joy. It is Freedom and, from here, you simply enjoy the life God has given you.

Need to change a Habit or Habits 1-2-3? Work It Spiritually!

At Cosmos Tree, “learning to change behavior patterns that no longer work for you” is at the core of Its most popular Class. Called Everyday Evolution, the Class is taught by Cosmos Tree Founder/Director Dr. Lane. Dr. Lane has also stated that when individuals come to Dr. Lane for help in their lives, which is often, the remedy frequently comes down to a simple behavioral change.

Here’s a 9-step program to help you do that:

1. Live The Truth. As Dr. Lane explains in the Spiritual Learning Series Understanding The Spirit You Are (Video/DVD #7) and Tools For Living Free (TFLF) #34, if it is your truth that, for example, you need to lose weight or exercise more, you need to stay in your truth.

2. Accept. As Dr. Lane further teaches in The Money Workbook and in TFLF #3, accepting a situation makes it easier to change. That means being neutral.

3. Choose. Dr. Lane teaches that The Power of Choice is the Real Power! Choose to allow a new focus/habit.

4. Put your new focus into the Light Of The Most High For the Highest Good and ask the Lord, God to Bless it like this: “Lord, God, send me Your Light! Lord, God, for the Highest Good please place [fill in – for example, my exercising daily] into Your Light for the Highest Good! And Lord, God please Bless This!” As Dr. Lane states in TFLF #40, follow through on anything that now comes forward. Listen to yourself.

5. Use the Two-Part Release Technique like this: “Lord, God send me Your Light! Lord, God, for the Highest Good please take anything that stands between me and [for example – exercising daily]” Tell yourself “(your name) It’s OK to let it go!”

6. Let Go, Let God! When you work with the Light Of The Most High you need to Allow and Allow some more. That means Let the Lord, God supply you; be Open and Receive! No “chewing” or “thinking” or “figuring it out”!

7. Do Self-talk. In the Everyday Evolution Class, Dr. Lane teaches that there can be no change without working with/educating our basic selves/the lower self that brings forward your karmic patterns (the habitual patterns that keep you going in circles). This Class is a MUST! For now, though, do direct your basic selves like this: “Lord, God, send me Your Light! Basics, come present! I need your cooperation and energy to [fill in – for example, exercise every day now!]. Thank you and keep up the good work with this!” Give them direction continually, for example, each day before you exercise.

8. Focus into the Positive. As Dr. Lane also teaches in Understanding The Spirit You Are, if you are choosing to stop smoking, focus on breathing better, feeling better, etc. instead of on “not smoking”/stopping smoking.” Do the same with your new focus/habit.

9. As Tools For Living Free #40 states, “Use Internal Reference Points.” Just because everyone is telling you that it takes 21 days to change a habit or that you need to change one at a time instead of 10 at a time, doesn’t mean that’s so. As Dr. Lane writes, “Everyone is different; go by your own inner reference points.”
