WE time — 02.13.21

Welcome to Round Three! 

Thank you for being here– for those of you Journeying on your own/with us, and for those of you just beginning. We are all on the Upward Spiral of Ascension, each taking their own steps to evolve individual and human consciousness to align with and express Divine Consciousness. These Journeys lay out a path to follow on a Journey that has no end (Divine Consciousness is Infinite and Eternal, afterall!). So…Welcome, and I am so grateful for you to be here, adding your light on the path.

In Round Three, the Guiding Thoughts shift from a focus of “You” to a focus of “We”. See this page for an extended explanation.

Also for this round, our Guest Journeyer is now Mary. Lita and Steve’s beautiful reflections will continue in the comments section, so if you have been enjoying their writings, please follow up and read those. Steve will back here for Round Four.

And as a reminder: this is not “my” Journey, not Lita’s Journey, not Steve or Mary’s Journey. This is our Journey– all of us, together. Feel free to add your reflections with us in the comments section.

Guiding Thought

We are Love. We have infinite Love to give; therefore, we are able to give Love infinitely. Filled with Love, our energy is vibrant. All of Life responds to our inner State of Being with mutual harmony.


Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband dearly. AND other than visits to the physical therapist, Steve has been my sole companion for nearly a month now as I limit my activities to recover from getting a new knee. (See? I promised myself I wasn’t going to dwell on THAT topic for the duration of this Journey, and yet, here I am again. – And yet, I can’t simply ignore this major event in my life.) I’ve been longing for some WE time, without even realizing it. We belong to a group that gathers monthly for Kirtan chants. I reluctantly sent a note indicating that I was not comfortable navigating a parking lot and uneven stairs in the dark, and so we would not be attending. It never occurred to me that ALL of the other members of this group cared enough for our presence that they were willing, on rather short notice, to change the venue and to gather at OUR house!  I want to respond with THEY ARE LOVE, but Steve and I are a part of this group, the group dynamic would be different without us, and so I must conclude that WE ARE LOVE!  On a similar note, today I’ve been feeling in need of some girl-time. I called a friend that I typically see for breakfast and crafting once a month or so. She promply responded with “yes, I’ve been waiting for you to be ready, how soon do you want to get together?” So we’re having breakfast early next week, the first date we were both available. I know she’s anticipating our shared time together as much as I am. Such play dates always include a fulfilling state of being, a shared sense of mutual harmony.  As with the Kirtan group, for each of us, It’s WE time, as much as it’s ME time.

Is Anything Not Meditation? — 02.13.20

Guiding Thought

Knowing the essence of All as your Self, you respect and revere All Life. Love your Self, love All Life. Bring this Love regularly, sincerely, and thankfully to all your activities and intentions. Know now the Peace inherent in Oneness. Know All as your Self. Know your Self as Love.


Ahem Prema. Ahem Prema. I am Divine Love. I am Divine Love.

I woke up late this morning, raced to dress and then meet my walking partner. My day has been like this for the last 6 hours. I have more than met my 10,000 steps. Every area of living space in our house is in chaos, with the exception of the kitchen and bathrooms.

We are in the midst of the grand reorganization (getting rid of boxes filled with who knows what, old furniture and beds) and with the intent that little or nothing goes into the landfill. We have multiple staging areas, or so it seems. The scene of chaos is an apt description of our living space. And who knows when it will clear. Soon, I hope.

Ahem Prema. Ahem Prema. I am Divine Love. I am Divine Love.

This mantra popped up for me in the midst of my driving this morning. I do not have to give over to the chaos of my routine and space.

My walking partner and I often repeat stories we tell each other.  I suspect they resurface in light of what is topical to our day. These replays often continue to offer another, deeper layer in our spiritual conversations. Periodically she shares her story of meeting with a Buddhist Lama following a presentation on meditation. She asked how she could ever find time to meditate. She had young children at the time. He told her that her parenting is a meditation. Washing dishes is a meditation. Cleaning house is a meditation.

The chaos in the house is my meditation today. Even the chaos deserves my respect and reverence: Ahem Prema. Ahem Prema. I am Divine Love. I am Divine Love.
