Prayer and Perception

Share

Unity Village 2017 Summer

Someone reminded me recently of the quote from, “A Course In Miracle’s” which says, “A miracle is a change in perception.

And boy was it good to be reminded of that.

After all, isn’t that what we are looking for? A change in our perception? We want to get rid of negativity in our lives, we want to forgive people, but how?

How exactly am I supposed to see that this is okay? How am I supposed to let this go? How am I supposed to deal with this person or this situation?

First off, understanding that when we have negative energy inside of us, it is ours, is a big step. read more

So What?

Share

Kyle/Saint Simons Island 2017

Do you ever ask yourself that?

“So what?”

My therapist asks me that. And so does my friend Tony.

I let it all spill out about how everything is wrong, about how terrible I feel, and about how hopeless it all seems at times. And they pose the question to me, “So what?”

The little question can be deflating.

After all, things are really bad! Can they not see how important this is? Can they not see all the implications?

Not that it is fun to admit, but I can be a little overly dramatic. read more

There Is A Plan

Share

but it isn’t my plan. It isn’t your plan either.

This is something that I have to remind myself of often as I move seemingly from one world to another.

I leave a death-bed where I am attempting to bring comfort to the person and the family, to go talk with someone who is very distraught because their child is in jail or their best friend overdosed and died last night.

An hour later I am laughing and playing in the water at the pool with my 9-year-old daughter.

And there is something inside me asking, “What the heck is going on here?” read more

Life Is Like A Relay Race

Share

Kyle speaking at the UMMAS gathering at Kanuga 2015

“It is kind of like life.” I said. “Sometimes you just don’t know if you are big enough or strong enough to do it.”

My friend immediately said, “You don’t have to be.”

She told me that when her daughter was younger, they lived next door to an elderly woman. The daughter, who was twelve, would go and visit the elderly neighbor a lot and over time had befriended her. 

One day, the elderly friend passed away, and the little girl was asked to officiate the memorial.  read more

What If You Already Are?

Share

What does it take to become enlightened? 

What does it take to get all the things we want, or to become all that we want to become?

Have you ever noticed that when you get something that you want, there is soon to be something else that you want?

“I’ve climbed to the top of the mountain. Now what?”

Jesus, the Buddha, and every other spiritual teacher that I have ever encountered, taught us that everything is within us already.

“Thoughts become things!”

So our life circumstances and everyone around us, comes from the make-up of our thoughts. read more

Getting Sucked In To the News

Share

Kyle at Unity Village August 2016

I got sucked in to the news again.

It happens sometimes, but it is so annoying. CNN, Reuters, BBC, and even the Drudge Report…

What is the President doing? What’s up with North Korea, China, Syria, and Russia?

Next thing you know I am reading this story about the next flu epidemic, which they know is coming. Millions will die.

The Facebook killer. The shooting rampage.

It just starts off bad and ends up worse.

It is a wonder we all don’t go jump off a bridge!

That reminds me of a story I saw the other day about how they are spending millions to construct a net beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, because so many people jump off of it every year. read more

On Easter

Share

Over the years, there have been two mantra’s that I have used.

Some people are given mantra’s by a guru, but mine came to me because they stood out so clearly and resonated so deeply with me.

Both came from our way-shower Jesus.

“Behold! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”

and

“I and thy Father are One.”

I write them in my journal, say them to myself often during the day, and use them in meditation by repeating them over and over and contemplating the meaning.

Using these mantra’s and contemplating the meaning, led me to my word for this year, which is, “RELAX!” read more

The “Work” of Meditation

Share

There are many different types of meditation, but the one thing that they all include, is focus.

You can focus on your breath, repeat a mantra, look at a candle flame or a spot on the wall, or you can listen to a guided meditation. Regardless of the technique that you use, the idea is to learn how to keep your focus and attention in one place for a length of time.

And this takes work.

When I began in meditation, I was using my breath. My initial goal was to watch my breath and count 25 breaths. read more

On Being Content

Share

Kyle at Unity Village August 2016

This morning I went to read the Daily Word, which is what I use for my morning meditation.

Today’s reading started off with a quote from the author of the book, “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying,” Bonnie Ware. She tells us that a common regret of those near the end of their lives is; “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” 

This really threw me for a loop, because I have lived a life as true to myself as possible, and yet I sometimes find myself deeply regretting it. read more

You Only Get To Do This Once

Share

Last night while watching the college football national championship game, these huge feelings washed over me.

One team featured a quarterback who was playing his last game. The other team featured a freshman who has had a great first year.

I thought about them and all the other players as well, and looking at the crowd and watching the festivities, the thought came to me that, “You only get to do this once.”

No matter how long and hard you have trained, no matter how many games you have played in or will play in during your life, this moment is a once in a lifetime experience. read more
