True Wild

Love looks like many things but it is no thing.  God’s Child’s place in the delicate threading of the great Oversoul’s Loom.  Woven together our illusion of separateness becomes One.  Twine and diamonds, sweat and dirt, sea and land, tooth and ivory, guitar and chord.  Our Sound is one of Harmony and Attunement to the Grace that we already are.  It’s the sound of the boughs of the trees and running riverbeds.  Mary Oliver’s poem, “Wild Geese”, speaks of nature ever calling out, harshly announcing our place in the scheme of things.  Yet, while the poet speaks of nature and its holy inspiration, I speak of the True heritage and Divinity that we come from, our Wildness and Freedom given to us by Knowing the Father, God directly.  In each moment, whether you see a landscape of the metropolis city hustle or quiet blade of grass, no matter where you are, no matter who you are, there is always the trace of His Hand in our life, leading us within to where God resides.  Within ourSelves, is the True, great territory to ourSelves, the Wild within.  All this life, our aspirations, our landscapes, our loves, our losses, funnily enough, are actually a dream to arouse from.  The Father wakes us from the illusion of life – which is actually death – and establishes us in True Life, True Freedom.  This is the Call of The True Wild.

And here I am blessed beyond measure, now unfettered and free, having received and answered That Call.  I’ve been introduced to the Great Master and Received Initiation into the Sound Current on The Path of Soul Transcendence.  I do – what the world calls – Meditation and am Lifted to the highest Highs, Which are within.  Within me.  They also are with in you.  This Initiation and Meditation remove the layers of karma around the Soul and stokes the embers of Joy and Our True Nature.  I feel an aliveness intrinsic with Love, dancing like countryside sisters and brightly colored maypole ribbons.  Through The Path of Soul Transcendence we discover a child-like celebration on the inside of ourSelves.  A whole world within.  As we sit in this Meditation the Father unravels the knots of the pressured loom and the unfolding begins; we find ourselves awash in spring, rebirth colors splashing, while we are Satisfied with His Presence only. 

Our Joyful brush strokes in this life leave their marks yet in Knowing ourSelves as Spirit, and through our Kindnesses, our Integrity and our movement as an Awakened Soul on the planet the karmic record is erases.  The propulsion to be and do and say lessens and, eventually, disappears.  We sink into our True Self.  Our True Wild.  The Freedom eclipses us and we sail on a northward wind that is caught within. 

If you are interested in Knowing yourSelf and celebrating that Self as Soul, as Spirit, then request Initiation into The Sound Current by contacting My Beloved Meditation Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane, through the website or  Take your first step – back to where you came from. Retracting your steps Home, as our Beloved Meditation Teacher says in the publication that we affectionately call The Red Book.  Through Initiation into the Sound Current we go back to Where we came from.  I am here to serve as a fellow walker for those who wish to do so.

In My Beloved Meditation Teacher’s most recent Satsang entitled, “Behind The Screen Of Anger” My Teacher describes this Process of the Soul’s having received Initiation into The Sound Current and Its Progression, “We’re all set up, we’re set up to be Lovers of God. … We know the overriding definition of Compassion is to be Who we are in the presence of others.  We need to Allow this Love, of the Spirit, of God, which is Who and What we are, to Flow. … It’s an Inner Way of Being That is projected onto the screen of Reality and is Reality. And we all need to do our part.  So the best Gift we can give anyone is to be at Our True Nature. And use anything along the negative pathway, the anger, the hurt, the fear, etc.. to Allow yourSelf to be moved to that Perfect Place of Loving where the Above is as the Below and where Inner Peace is and where the Eternal Now exists.  And it’s really that simple.”

I Am Worthy Of Love

The Teaching, “You are Worthy,” brought forward by the Director of Cosmos Tree and The Center For Religion And Advanced Spiritual Studies (CRASS) and my Spiritual Teacher, Dr. Lane, has been with me recently. When I was at the yearly Initiates’ RETREAT a few months ago, I understood that a negative pattern of mine to not “speak up” (physically – when something felt important for me to say) was a pattern I had allowed because I was not recognizing my Worth.

Again, the other day, I felt fear and judgement come up around a choice to not create boundaries or speak up for myself regarding Service. What immediately came to me is, “You are Worthy.” I saw how in my being of Service to others, I have – up until now – often disregarded mySelf by thinking others “knew better”. As such, I have often ignored my preferences and gone with what other people have asked of me.

Service (meaning the Service I do for Cosmos Tree and CRASS non-profit organizations and the volunteer work I do for community, family, friends, etc.) is an extremely important part of my life as it affords many Opportunities for me to Lift and Grow. But I do a dis-service to mySelf when I don’t INCLUDE mySelf in that Service. To “include” mySelf means to give mySelf the same respect, time, energy, and Love that I give to others.

I turned to the Tool, “You Are Worthy,” #74 of the Tools For Living Free Educational Series available on the Cosmos Tree website to understand more of how I can be of Service to mySelf and know my Worth. In It, Dr. Lane talks about how knowing one’s Worth doesn’t take big, complicated gestures or actions. Rather it is the small, moment-to-moment, choices to practice Love, Compassion, and Neutrality that make the difference. Dr. Lane states, “You need to know that the Compassion that God has for us is how we need to treat ourSelves…we have to have that Compassion and Caring for ourSelves.”

For me, having Compassion for mySelf includes listening to my Inner Knowing, communicating clearly what works for me/what my preferences are, and doing Self-Talk when I feel like others aren’t “happy” with what I’ve put out. An example of Self-Tallk is, “Basics, come present! We are Loved and Worthy of Love. I need you to stay with your preference (what was put out). Thank you for your Loving Cooperation!”

Inwardly moving from a “place” of fear and judgement to a “place” of Worthiness and Love is, for me, an amazing, powerful, joyful experience – like being wrapped up in a big warm hug. All it took for that experience was a small step in a different direction. As Dr. Lane notes, “It is a nice circle: making these [small] choices helps you to know you ARE Worthy and Knowing That helps you make those choices.”

I am Worthy and I CHOOSE to Know THAT!

There’s No Such Thing as Aging

When I first met Dr. Lane, My Teacher, I recall saying something about my age, which was 46. And I’ll always remember My Teacher’s response: “There’s no such thing as aging!”

I Know inwardly that this is so because I Know we’re Spirit. As My Teacher has Taught me, anything other than focusing into Spirit/identifying mySelf as That is false identification. That includes identifying with the body, with the physical.

As Dr. Lane has also Taught me, we’re all wearing the same thing: a body and that that body goes into the ground. The Spirit I am is Eternal. That’s Who I am; That’s Who we are. And we’re here to come to Know ourSelves as That. That’s It, folks!

I chose to write this blog after an experience I recently had. I was getting my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at a local pharmacy. After I received the shot, I was told to sit outside the room in a waiting area for 15 minutes to make sure all was OK before I could leave.

As I walked towards this waiting area, the people there started waving at me. At first I kind of wondered what are they waving for? Then I realized that they were just “welcoming” me into this small group of people who had gathered post- and pre-shot.

Kind of like a little vaccine club.

So we chatted about the shot and one person suggested that I may want to wave my arms around to prevent the stiffness that can result from it. Then she raised her arms way up and started swinging them around, almost like an arm-driven wave dance. And she just kept swinging them and waving them from side to side to show me what she believed was best for me.

I raised my arms and swung them, too.

Then, later on, I realized something. That this small “get together” – and a similar one that had taken place after my first shot – was the first time other than in nursing homes that I had actually seen and been in the company of older people like this, chatting, smiling, advising each other, too. It was happening because the shot was being given at that time only to people over 65, mySelf included.

Boy! was it fun.

That woman waving her arms – I knew outwardly that she was what we call in this world “old”. But the experience I had inwardly was age-free. It was one of fun, of being with a Soul. Yes, I knew outwardly she was likely in her 90s and, perhaps, beyond that; and her arms were a mass of wrinkles and they were super-thin. It was as if that information registered someplace off in the distance and had no real effect on me.

I Know we’re One Spirit. I know that the physical is an Opportunity to Lift and to Grow – the so-called “aging process” included. It’s part of God’s Plan, too. As My Teacher also Teaches, it’s no accident that one person is born this way and another that way. It’s all Love to help us move into that Oneness, Where we all in Reality live. And Where there is no such thing as aging.

I believe that it was no mistake that they kept waving at me. And waving at me.

On some level, I believe, they knew we were somehow in this life together as One. That this was a judgment-free zone. As an Initiate Of The Sound Current, I know that when I am Present/living as the Spirit I am, “others” pick up on It somehow.

It’s no accident, of course, that My Teacher Teaches that the best thing we Initiates can do for anyone is to be ourSelf.

This reminds me of something else: for eleven years I was given the Honor and the Blessing of being of Loving Service by hosting the Magnificent Meditation For Health And Well-Being that is brought forward by Dr. Lane at nursing homes.

It was in doing that that I fell in love with “old people”. Yes, we are One Spirit; and, as the Spirit I am, I recognize their wisdom; their vast experience; and, as I’ve shared with other people at these homes who also love “old people” what I believe is their ability to let go. So much had been given to them situation-wise – death of a loved one, often many times over; family stuff including children in jail or addicted to drugs; illness, you name it – that they had decided at some point(s) to start to let go and to let go some more.

That was, I realize now, the foundation for the wisdom.

And yes, the only person I’ve ever trusted outside of Dr. Lane, My Teacher, was the aunt of someone I was dating at the time. I trusted her with anything I had to say, no matter how “private.” She was wise; she had common sense.

And, yes, outwardly, she was 96 and bed-bound. And, she just kept going even though she was losing her ability to move at all. Wow! She was to me amazing.

At first she expressed dismay at “living this long” then she moved into acceptance of her situation.

As a Soul I Know from My Teacher that like all Souls (with very rare exceptions) she was here on this planet to get her Learning. Yes, she will return for future embodiments until the Soul that was in the body that was this magnificent person chooses to use an embodiment for Its Purpose, Which is to come to Know ourSelves as Spirit, as Soul, Which is Who and What we are, period.

This Opportunity to come to Know ourSelves is a rare and Precious One and It is here on this planet now through the Priceless Gift of Initiation Into The Sound Current. As My Teacher, the Sound Current Master Bringing Forth this Gift, Teaches, you never know when this Opportunity will come again!

What “Emergency”? Living “Circumstance-Free”!

I recently had an emergency in my apartment; and right after the situation was discovered by my housekeeper, I moved out and into a nearby hotel.

Instead of choosing into negativity, I Chose to be Present In The Moment. These words – “Present In The Moment” – are often used as buzzwords, Oh, yeah! Present in the moment.

Present in the Moment, according to The Teachings brought forth by Dr. Roger B. Lane, the Founder and Director of Cosmos Tree, is the moment-to-moment Focus into Spirit, Which is Who and What we are. Through Cosmos Tree, Dr. Lane Generously makes available many Tools to help us strengthen ourSelves as the Spirit we are.

I used many of these “Power Tools” during the emergency. First, as The Teachings Teach us, I used this situation to Lift and Grow by consciously Knowing that it was a Gift from the Lord, God! I didn’t “think” it was some “terrible tragedy” and “why me?”

I worked with my basic selves, the part of me that brings forward my karmic patterns, to be Present like this: “Basics come present! I need your cooperation and energy to be Present now! Thank you and keep up the good work with this!”

I Knew that I was a Powerful Creator and that the “emergency” was an out-picturing of what I had been running inwardly: I was creating the very definition of “emergency” – a “dangerous situation requiring immediate action” – by constantly choosing into negativity. To assist with this, I used the Two-Part Release Technique by inwardly saying, “For the Highest Good, Lord, God, send me Your Light! For the Highest Good, Lord, God, take this negativity from me!” I told mySelf “(my name) it’s OK to let it go!”

I used the situation to create positively – another key Teaching – by working with the Light Of The Most High like this: “For the Highest Good, Lord, God, send me Your Light!” I ask the Lord, God, for the Highest Good for my preference, for the handling of the “emergency” to go easily and effortlessly. I also called in for Open Hour, the Sacred times each week when Dr. Lane offers Spiritual Guidance by phone. Dr. Lane told me, “You are not your circumstances!” It was a wake-up call to re-Focus into Spirit/be Present!

The more I worked the Power Tools, the more I Knew that I was Supplied by Spirit; that I am Blessed to be Given exactly what I need moment-to-moment. Many Tools reinforce this Truth: Dr. Lane’s new book, A Baker’s Dozen: Tools For Daily Living; The Money Workbook by Dr. Lane; Tools For Living Free #61, “Using The Tool Of Gratitude,” to name a few. They are all available by going to

Acceptance is another life-altering Teaching apropos of an “emergency.” As Dr. Lane states in #61, Which is excerpted from The Money Workbook:
“The importance of acceptance cannot be stressed enough. It does not mean we have to love it or even like something. It merely means to accept it from a neutral space without judgement. For example, if I am driving along and my car gets hit by another driver, I do not like it but I accept the fact that it did happen. I do not have to think it is because I am really a bad person or I need not have been driving around at that time of the night, anyway. Nor do I deny the fact that it simply happened. I merely take care of what needs to be done regarding my insurance company and getting the car to a shop which does good work. Acceptance is a neutral process, like simply turning a light switch on or off.”

From this Power Tool and others, I am now far more often able to Accept the Love that is here for me.

Finally, I stayed in my Truth no matter the societal “thinking” about the “emergency”, and I had a blast! And I was having it because I chose to take advantage of every Power Tool offered at Cosmos Tree: Class; Meditation Of The Light Of The Most High; The Sunday Program; The Teachings Study Group; Open Hour; Meditation For Health And Well-Being; Tools For Living Free; DVDs; MP3s of Talks; and, most importantly, placing mySelf in the Sacred Presence of Dr. Lane, My Spiritual Teacher.

I strongly suggest you do the same!

Are You “Doing Funny Little Stuff With Money?” – Learn How Spiritual Economics Really Works!

In the 2017 Book, A Baker’s Dozen: Tools For Daily Living, by Cosmos Tree, Inc. Founder and Director Dr. Roger B. Lane, a crucial section reads:

“And I watch people do their funny little stuff with money: ‘There’s not enough; let me hold on! Let me see if I have enough for lunch! If I have enough for dinner!’ Oh! And they’re holding on and they’re tight and they’re tight and they’re tight. And they’re contracted. And at the same time they expect God to help them out. But if you’re contracted how can He? You haven’t made yourSelf ‘big’ enough for the Spirit you are. So Giving has a lot to do with being ‘big’ enough to Allow the Spirit inside of you to be because that’s pretty ‘big.’”

Need To Get Organized 1-2-3? Go Mindless!

This may shock you but The Teachings that Cosmos Tree Founder and Director Dr. Roger B. Lane brings forward teach us that the product of the mind is negativity and it isn’t real. As Dr. Lane Teaches: the mind loves to be busy; it loves to create problems so that we can then go “out there” and solve them. It wants to be “the Queen of Sheba”; the “King of the Hill.” And it can make a fool out of you if you choose to give your power over and allow the mind to be in charge as you go running around trying to solve all these so-called problems, which don’t really exist and that the mind loves to create.

How To Use Tools For Living Free and all the Free Tools On Cosmos Tree’s Site!

Tools For Living Free are FREE two-sided publications combining valuable excerpts from the Enlightening Monthly Talks given by Cosmos Tree Founder/Director Dr. Lane together with short exercises that you can do during the day to help you be present; live more Joyously and Peacefully; and, most importantly, focus into the Spirit you are and know that doing that is the Purpose of this life you’ve been given.

How To Discipline Lovingly

What is the correct way to discipline a child? Certainly a hot button issue in the parenting world and a question I have often asked myself as a parent of three.

How Do I Become More Spiritual?

“How do I become more Spiritual?” you ask?

A search of this question online brings up over 165 million results. If I were to make a bet less than 1% of those links point to the Truth.

The answer, in short, is you Allow yourself to be more yourSelf.

Yes. Simply by being yourSelf. That’s Self with a capital “S”, Which refers to that part of us That is Eternal. Divine. The Spirit we are.

Be The Best Parent You Can Be By Knowing Your True Role As A Parent!

In the Fall of 2008, I began participating in Cosmos Tree Meditations and studying with Founder and Director, Dr. Roger B. Lane. At the time, I was married but did not have any children. I had no idea how much I did not know about mySelf or about being a parent. Before having children, I was certain that my own experience with my parents and the babysitting jobs I held throughout my life were preparation enough to raise my own. Blessedly for me, by the time I did have children I had a foundation of The Teachings that inform Cosmos Tree, Which every day assist me in being the best parent I can be by Teaching me how to be the Spirit that I am.
