We are entering a new decade for humanity. You probably can feel it in your gut; nothing is exactly like it was. Nothing can be definitively planned for the coming year. Its ingredients are whirling in the ethers of our Earth and will be impacted by the choices that we make – personal choices, relationship choices, community choices, state and country choices. Does that seem odd to you? After all, some in authority tell us that our vote, our actions don’t count; just let their idea of how a country should function take over. We have been taught that we are alone in making our life work; that each of us must ‘pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps”. That the poor are responsible for their economic plight. That there is no one to help us but ourselves. Isn’t that depressing!
There are other sayings that, to me, reflect more of what is true for our human world – ‘no man is an island’; ‘it takes a community to raise a child’. The truth is that we are all part of one whole; One Soul that is all of us together. Just like the cells of a human body, they all hold different functions for the body and how well each cell functions impacts the wellbeing of the body; what the other cells and organs do impact each cell’s wellbeing and the choices that we make as to food and exercise impact the health of each cell in our bodies. In the same way, what each of us does impacts the capabilities and capacities of the whole Soul. This is a one-for-all, all-for-one world. If we are divided, separated, and think that we have no impact on the whole, then the magnificent human Soul will wither and be so much less that our specie’s and our Soul’s possibilities.
That is why the choices that each of us make really do impact the whole world. The butterfly in Africa impacts the weather in the United States. That’s quantum physics. It’s also a fact that we are one interrelated whole. We are connected to everyone else and everyone else is connected to us. It’s a living breathing matrix of life where we pulse together creating a world that our children’s children will live in. We are matrixed together with all other life on earth and with the earth herself. As part of this interrelated, interactive and interdependent matrix, we have both rights and responsibilities.
We choose our future and humanities future thru our present-day choices and actions. Choices that seem individual but in their impact are so much more. They impact our own lives, our body, our family, our community, our state, our nation and the world. All life on earth is interactive, interdependent and inter-related. We can’t get away from that and we don’t want to get away from it, because without that interdependence, interrelatedness and interactivity, we would not have the capabilities and capacities that our species has. It’s takes interaction to move, to create. It’s takes acknowledged interdependence for us to make the best choices for ourselves, our families and our communities. We have to make many of those choices together, listening to what we each crave most for our society and our culture.
A lot of ideas in our societies have been set up on the premise that we are singular and that individuals are not impacted by what happens to another. We insulate ourselves within our homes, our housing developments, our religions, our politics and we pretend that someone else is at responsible for the state of our communities, our nations and the world. That is never true. We are responsible and we can choose the kind of family, community, nation and earth that we crave.
How do we make choices that will support all of humanity to be more of what our species was created to be? By paying attention at the individual, family, community, state, nation and earth levels. This summer you saw people stepping back and looking at the Black Lives Matter movement and seeing a human problem that impacted all of us – white, brown, black, yellow. If one is not safe, then no one is safe. You see it when people fight against the food conglomerates and chemical conglomerates who de-vitalize our food supply and then blame us for our health problems. You see people step up against their local, state and national governments when those governments do not protect its citizens in water and air pollution issues. You see it when people choose to buy local fresh produce and leave behind the processed food that holds so little nutrients for us. You see it when a parent won’t allow bullying or violence in their home. You see it when an individual stops their negative self-talk. You see it when individuals persist in writing their Creation Exercises regularly so that they can re-matrix the old words of the past, and matrix the new life that they crave.
In the United States, we are choosing our President for the coming four years. I have heard people talk on behalf of their preferred candidate. I have heard educated people say that they don’t think that they will vote because it’s a toss-up for what each will bring to our future. I think this is a cop out. I agree that there there is so much that has to change in how the US government and our political system functions. Many people are discouraged that so much has to change to create a better society. It can feel like an intractable system and our one small vote can’t shift it. All of our small votes together can shift the present situation. We can stand for what we hope will be the future of our country and our peoples.
Yet, we are here now. Just like with your GPS, you have to enter your present location and your desired future location. We are not where we want to be as species or as a nation, and this is not the time to give up. This is the time to define your version of paradise for the United States. Is there universal health care? Is our maternal death rate the lowest in the world? Is our food supply revitalized and healthy? Do all people, regardless of race, age, religion or sexual orientation, have equal rights under the law and within our communities? Those are elements of what I crave for the US. What are yours? Which party is the most likely to move you toward your paradise for the United States and for the earth? Not voting is a choice. It hands over to others what is both your responsibility and your right to decide what is the most desirable future for the US.
You cannot hope to enjoy paradise unless you take the responsibility for dreaming it and living it in your individual life, your community life, your life as a citizen of your state and your country and as a member of the Earth’s children. To use your rights later, you must act responsibly now.

Back in 2016, The ‘In Unity with Creation Institute’ was the name given for the location and people who were committed to promoting and expanding the use of Tantra’s Language of Creation. This commitment always fit but the name never did feel right. We had on the wrong ‘coat’. For the last 15 months, we envisioned the resonance of name and commitment being present in our lives. We craved to create a world, not teach a methodology. After all, it is what we build with our creation exercises that is what is important. The creation exercises are alchemical formulas that bring us into alignment with Creation and with our larger selves. We wanted a name that held that promise.
Come and visit the site. Our Store holds not just Tools for Learning the Creation Exercises, but also many of the calls that unpack the larger field that we live in. The calls are at new prices and primed to inform the larger field so that we all can move thru these levels of consciousness of the templates. Our library holds videos, audios and articles that inform and enliven the larger field of which we are all apart. Visit us at www.loc-institute.com/

“For You, With You, By You” these words came to me in a meditation just after I had been wondering about the abundant world that I had been shown in a meditation just the day before. But I get ahead of myself, let me move back several days to set the context of this phrase.
Most of this year, my mind has been in a quantum state which essentially meant that it was not able to plan or write. Yes, I could take care of the normal functioning of life, yet there was no sense of me being able to plan for doing for my business or for my life. It was like my brain was a vacant space that I could not force to think or plan. Then Covid 19 ‘shelter in place’ happened. This vacant still mind did not shift except I began to wonder about the value of a life that did not connect with others or produce something. I understood that I was not and could not force this state of stillness and openness in my mind. My sense was that everything that I had been doing, was not necessarily what I was supposed to do in the future. I had to wait until the answer appeared. I sense that the answer is ‘For you, with you, by you”.
Years ago, I had experienced a phenomenon of wanting to create a course or take a class and then hearing internally “you can, but you won’t use it”. I ignored this message because I wanted to take the class or create a course. Afterwards I found that indeed I hardly used the skills from the class in my professional life and when it was a course I created, well those ran several times and then there were no registrants. Humm.
So when this quantum mind became how my mind was every day, then I knew that I just should surrender and not fight the stillness and allow that right now is not the time to be a doer either about my present or my future. It was frustrating to be put it mildly not just for myself but also for my friends who wondered when I would return to my old self.
The good and bad news is that I won’t return to my old self. The good news is that I now know I am becoming more of whom I came here to be. I am recognizing my value in my just being. That is not something that I would have even imagined before. The harder news is that I must continue to listen, to observe, to go into meditation and to be open to what is arising around me. To absorb the energies arising and to liberate all the old dissonant energies and stories from my body, my Spirit, my Field.
So what does this phrase ‘For you, with you, by you’ mean to me? As I said in the beginning of this story, this phrase had come to me in the context of several images that had been reoccurring for me in the past week. The first image was of trying to pull myself out of a black thick sea onto a craggy rocky mountain. I related this image to my feeling of being pulled down by my old expectations and judgments. I could physically feel the pull of these black waters and wondered if I could yet again pull myself out of them.
Then a few days after this black sea image appeared, the second image came in as a continuance of the first image. I saw myself struggling to pull myself out of the black sea and onto the rocks. Then this yellow/white band of light just plucked me up and put me up on the rocks above the water. The black sea couldn’t touch me. I looked up and saw that I was on the side of a tall mountain. I could barely see the top of the mountain and what I did see was just rock. I wished that I was on the top of the mountain. Then another band of light picked me up again and again until I stood on the top of the mountain looking down at its rocky flanks and the sea far far below. I wished that the mountain had earth and living things on it. I then heard, ‘turn around’. I did and below me there was a green verdant land that stretched beyond my sight. My heart jumped with joy. I just knew that it was the world that I have been craving for so long. Where all Beings and all humans on this planet were living in unity on this planet, that all were held as unique and essential Beings and treated as such. My heart flew open and I cried in joy that this was really happening! I was filled with joy the rest of the day. My experience of my life changed with that image. I know in my deepest knowing that the world that we crave is coming in right now for humanity to claim as their own. I physically feel that humanity is indeed in a new Spring.
The next morning, just after I closed my eyes in meditation, I heard, “for you, with you, by you”. I knew that this world of unity had been created ‘for me’ by higher dimensional Beings, by my God, my Goddess, my higher Self. I love that I am cared for in this way, that we all are cared for in this way. Creation wants me to be happy. My cravings just guided the way.
Then the ‘with you’ phrase had me take a deep breath. I created this new vital world with them as a co-creator of beauty, truth, harmony, balance and proportion. I walked with these other dimensional Beings side by side. Not the old ways of a supplicant but as an equal. We walk with the Gods, but we don’t believe it. I am starting to believe it now.
Finally, the ‘by you’ phrase. Yes, I did it. I created the new reality thru my commitment to humanity; by writing my cravings (using the *Language of Creation templates) for this new world for the past five years; by striving my whole life to know ‘what is mine to do’; by believing that I could co-create with my God/Goddess; and by believing that all humans have this capacity. Humans have forgotten what they are. Humanity somehow was convinced that they were less than their original design. They even forgot that there was an original design for humanity where we co-created a world of unity and diversity, of love and respect for each Being on this planet and in the Universe.
For You, with You, by You
“For you, with you, by you ” translates into my purpose now. To Be whom I came here to be and do what I came here to do and walk with my God/Goddess as we recreate paradise on earth. To work for me, for you, for humanity so we all hold only that which is resonant for us. To walk with you as we co-create a new reality for earth, and to stand in awe and gratitude as you/we/humanity create the world that we have craved for so long.

We, as a people and as individuals, do think about the world that we would like to live in and we might even spend a little bit of time imagining it. Mostly we imagine briefly because we believe that this reality is all there is. We have lived in this reality since our birth. We have learned to survive in it, and some might have even thrived here. Yet it does not give us hope for a better life for our societies. Our society does not have our back. We are not supported in our yearnings and our cravings for a world where all humans are nurtured as their unique and essential aspect. We find anger against something or sadness about something easier to feel and act within then we do in hoping for the kind of world we want. We have so little hope that we do not think about designing this world that we crave. I believe that we can and should design the world that we crave.
Here’s an idea! What if every time you felt sorrow about an event or an interaction, or if the feelings of sadness or anger or irritation come up, what if instead of being in those feelings, you just let them be – not pushing them down, not fostering them, just let them be AND then start a both/and experience. While you observe those feelings of anger, sadness, despair, open a door in your mind and heart to craving the world that you want. Imagine it a bit until you are fascinated with what it would feel like to be in a world that you crave. I really think that this could work. We create the realities that we are in – well, at least, we create the ways that we choose to respond. So this game of dreaming the future while you grieve the present is a game of what you want to be dominate in your life, the dream or the reality of now? It won’t make you woo-woo or out of touch with this reality. This dream/reality game will give you other possibilities for your life. Instead of lashing out at those who have done something disgraceful or wrong or negligent, allow that lashing out to ease out of your body and let those feelings/imaginings of new life-enhancing emotions, of new realities come in and dominate your thoughts.
I have found that this process of designing the world that I want to live in is a fascinating one. I use the Creation Exercises developed by Tantra Maat as one of my core practices in this process. Her creation exercises hold the form of the Golden Mean which is the basic pattern of all that grows and lives on this planet. So, instead of free form imagining, why not follow a template that mimics the same process that is used in all that is created on earth. The effectiveness of these creation exercises is dependent on two things – one that you follow their form and two that you write only life-enhancing, life-generating phrases. So what is it that you crave? is it to feel healthy because you are in physical pain? Then write what you want to be your reality…Craving moving with ease and grace. Do not write Craving feeling no pain. The latter does not give you tangible sense of the life that you want to have, while the former does.
Tangibility, what does that mean to you? For me it now means having a strong solid knowing thru my Sentient Intelligence. So I might feel energies in my solar plexus, i might feel expansions in my core or heart area, I might feel emotions like happiness, contentment, excitement. I might even have words arise that were not planned and feel resonant to me. I rely on these sensations and sensitivities, to inform me of what is life-enhancing for me, so when I write a creation exercise, I have strong clues to inform me if I am writing a future that will support and nurture me.
For me, these dreams, these cravings are for myself and for humanity. Our world would be a much more enjoyable place to live in if others were happy and cared for too! Let your dreams encompass more people and worlds than you presently know about. Our imaginations want space to grow and to help us inhabit a better place for us and all humanity. It all starts with each of us giving more time to imagining the world that we crave to live in. It starts with writing what we crave and listening internally to our sentient intelligence to get feedback from our full system of body and Spirit.
There are two parts of any Creation Exercises, one is the Craving side and the other is the Observing side. I have to say that the Observing side lets me write all that anger, frustration, sadness, that I am experiencing. It feels really good to be able to spit out all that gets me down. In teaching others about the creation exercises, we used to call the Observing exercises like giving your present location to your GPS. First we say where we want to be in the Craving exercise and then we say where we are in the present moment in the Observing exercise. It’s critical to acknowledge where you are as you aim for your desired future. I believe that we have guides/helpers who listen to us and our cravings. Creation/God/Goddess/Great Spirit needs the specifics of what we crave and they need to know specifically where we are now, just like GPS does.
We all want a better world for ourselves, our families and all other humans and beings on this planet. Let’s start actively imagining that world of unity where all life in honored and respected.

We are in the Fall of the year. It is the traditional time of looking back over the past year and preparing for rest. In the old days, we were finishing the harvesting of our crops for the year. As the last of the crops were sold or stored, we would take time to celebrate our harvests, look at what needs to changed for the coming year, and dream of the crops and activities for the coming year. Then we would rest and prepare for the coming year. In this day of constant year-round work, we don’t take time to look back and celebrate our personal and business success and/or our mistakes.
Why should we take time to look back at this past year?
How does this looking back assist us?
What happens if we don’t look back in gratitude for the harvests of lessons learned?
Hindsight is a powerful tool when we use it to specifically examine our response/reaction patterns to traumatic weather shifts, to behavior changes in ourselves or others. When we look back, we can see when we got the first inkling of a shift/change and see where our responses were correct or when we were totally clueless and our reactions got us in trouble or danger. The difficulty of using our hindsight and applying that information to the future is particularly problematic in these days of high energy shifts on the planet. There is less promise of consistency with the historic past and greater promise of the new arising unexpectedly. If we examine our inklings, which we call Sentient Intelligence, from the past year around our successes and failures, and then pay attention to that type of sentient information in the coming year, we will probably be more sensitive to those types of sentient information earlier and thus be better prepared to respond to next year’s unusual occurring. We will be better able to roll with the new reality as it presents itself and land our feet, so to speak.
So what is Sentient Intelligence? It is the resonant language of creation that bonds all that exists into one cohesive whole. This is the intelligence when picked up on allows all of life to be a sensual, engaging, vital, and connected experience. This intelligence is often experienced as sensations, emotions or energies running through the body. These sensations can be life-enhancing or life defeating. You may have experienced these as a sense of elation or an intuitive nudge, feeling sudden chills or maybe as a feeling of being sucker-punched, or a sinking feeling in your stomach.
Our body/mind/spirit system has a sentient intelligence and its registers are both the same and different for everyone and they tend to be consistent for each individual. We all receive information from our body about what is occurring both within the body and outside of it. Our second brain, the Enteric Nervous System also known as the Solar Plexus, gathers this information from all our mind/body/spirit systems and sends this information to our brains thru the Vagus nerve 24-7. Sometimes the sensation is like one that we were aware of in our childhood. Sometimes it is just so different that we take note. In any case, this ‘paying attention’ is a three-step process. First, there is the paying attention to the present moment feedback from our body and not pre-judging its meaning. Second, there is a checking in within as to what this sensation means. This checking in includes observing more closely what is occurring around you or within you. Now, really ask ‘what does this sensation mean’? Our neural networks then expand their search for all possible connections. This process will give you the information about what is occurring within and outside of you. It will tell you what your whole system wants you to be aware of. Last, there is choosing your response. Yes, this is where choosing a response puts you in the driver’s seat.
If we do not pay attention to our personal registers for what is danger, or unwise, or unpredictable, we end up feeling like we are a punching bag. Always the tail of the dog. We also need to pay attention to our sentient intelligence markers for what is the right action or right path to take. Our earth is shifting her dimensional energies dramatically. As a human who lives on and within the energy field of the earth, we are impacted. We have a choice to build our ability to dance with these shifts, or to live in reaction and reap the consequences, or to just leave this planet. Make your choice.
One of best opportunities to build your comprehension of your Sentient Intelligence markers, is in the writing of the creation exercises that Tantra Maat developed. When you write your creation exercises, you begin this conversation with your sentient intelligence and you are experiencing and learning to language your Nature of Being, your deeper wisdom and Creation. As you search for words or phrases while writing your Creation Exercises, your system provided sensations, emotions, energies, even words popping into your head that just feel right. These are the registers or markers of sentient intelligence that I have been talking about. Over time, as you pay attention to these sensations, you will get to know how your system registers resonance, life-enhancing and life-defeating. This is where creating your Sentient Intelligence Dictionary will really be helpful. Write down in your Dictionary what you experience each time you write your Creation Exercise, especially noting any sensations, emotions or energies you feel. In time, you will find that these resonant markers speak more clearly to you than any ideas your intellect may have about what is “right”.
That is how we learn to dance with the dramatic shifts occurring energetically on our planet earth. That is how we begin to trust to take a certain action or path. That is how we gain strength, stamina and capacity for being more of whom we came here to be. This is how we create a better future for ourselves, our families and for humanity. This is how we learn from our harvest and experience more trust and faith in the life-enhancing possibilities for the coming years.
The western culture is a do, do, do culture. We run and triple pack our time whether we are at an event and simultaneously tracking our phone messages or getting up early/staying up late to ‘get things done’. We are a stressed people and the pressure isn’t lifting. What are we to do about it?
Recently I read an article about a young boy who had to write an essay for school about who he wanted to be when he grew up. In it he talked about how busy his parents were and how they always had time to read their phones. His choice for who he wanted to be? His parents’ phones, so they would pay attention to him.
Last year I was on a family vacation. One mom was telling her son not to get on the iPad, to play with the other kids. Yet, as I looked up from my phone, all the adults were on their phones…not talking with each other, not playing games with each other or the kids. It was a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ moment. Do other families have the same problem? Are they even concerned about this constant focus on their phones?
Somehow, we have forgotten to turn off our phones and turn off the world. Years ago, we would go away for the weekend, shrug and say, oh, we are ‘out of range’ of the phone or internet. Then we would talk with each other or play board games with each other or take a walk or read a book. Not so today. Everyone pays more attention to the outside world even from the start of the day. I am just as guilty. I am retired and yet I check my phone when I wake up to see what has come up in my WhatsApp chats or on Facebook or Twitter. Daily I make myself put the phone down and turn to meditation or my morning walk. The well being of our whole self is at stake here. We must take more time to listen within, to our bodies and to our Spirits.
We have to self-regulate our availability to the world and our availability to ourselves and our families. What is availability to our-self? Availability to our-self means paying attention to our wholeness which includes our body, our emotions, our Spirit and yes, our mind. It takes time to learn to not be thinking all the time. To let your body and Spirit talk to you thru your sentient intelligence. It takes practice to be quiet and listen within. We need quiet time to let our minds settle and find our own unique solutions to our problems. We need to observe what is occurring in our lives from the perspective of the disengaged observer. We can’t get to where we want to be, without first seeing where we are in the moment. We need to listen to our sentient intelligence which informs us about what is life-enhancing for us and what is life-defeating for us. No one else has your personal monitoring system. Only you.
There are moments in our lives that we are invited to go into quiet. This month holds many of these moments. Time to perceive our personal universe from the perspective of listening and observing. We need to stop our connections to phones and social media for these moments, for these sacred times of connection. We will take deep breathes and wait in a pause for what is arising in our lives. We cannot plan or design what is arising. We need to nurture it with our internal listening and our stepped back observing.
It would be perilous for us to think that we can ‘do’ ourselves thru this quiet time. It can’t be done. What is arising has not existed before in our lives on this earth. Breathe deeply. Turn off your phone. Turn off your computer. Close your eyes. Listen to your emotions, listen to the physical sensations in your body, allow your body to relax, drop those shoulders and take a deep breath.
Psychological research has shown that our minds need this internal and external quiet time. This ‘away’ time allows our minds to gather all the information about our lives to be able to create solutions unique to our life. Sit in meditation, sit in a garden and breathe, take a walk in the woods or by the sea. Listen to your Spirit, that part of you that came here to be and do something in the world. We are in a high shifting time. We must make room for our Spirit to be more within our bodies and our minds. Take the time to BE You. Place the focus of your life on you. Leave the outside world separated from you. Be quiet within and listen.
Then allow the imaginings to arise. Don’t judge them or alter them. Let them arise and dance within your mind and your heart like the shadows that dance around a fire at night These are the seeds of your future finding fertile ground in your body and spirit, your matter and your energy. They have not taken their final form. Sit back, observe, and allow. This is a magical time for all of us. BE part of the magic for yourself.
This process of going quiet happens for organizations just as it does for people. The Advocates of the In Unity with Creation Institute have been in a visioning process around the Institute for almost a year now. While in that process, we continued some basic programs – our newsletter, the 90 Day Creation Project, Tools to Thrive and Fireside Chat/the Gathering. In August we decided that for Fall 2019 we needed to focus our attention and our time on imagining what the new forms of the Institute will be. With that in mind, we will not be offering either Tools to Thrive or the 90 Day Creation Project for fall 2019.
Starting September 2019, the In Unity with Creation Institute will be offering only one program a month, the monthly Gathering, where participants share what they have heard, comprehended and experienced in the past month. It is a special time where participants get to be with others and explore new ideas and experiences. To register for the September Gathering on 9/28, Click here
Are you interested in joining us in imagining the future of the Institute? Please join us if you are called. We need others to help us create a reality of unity where the Institute can support others in creating their dreams. We need dreamers, technical people. and marketing people to help bring our imagining for the future of the Institute into a new reality. If you are interested in joining us in the transformation/transmutation of the In Unity with Creation Institute, please email Elektra at firstname.lastname@example.org

As so often happens when I am preparing for some transformational experiences in my life, such as an amazing journey to Italy and Damanhur this month, an acrostic poem took shape for the word expand. Thank you to the Pre-Med participants who so artfully gave me the language to feed into the field. I honor all of you who participated, thinking the words would be used for a mandala, which they shall, yet the language can be present here as well:
E: Etheric’s Balance
X: “X-pand”; extend the threads of consciousness out past into the beyond
P: Participate in the rituals of Movement and Community
A: Awaken allies between the Cosmos and Earth
N: NOW experience the lotus in the heart opening as above so below
D: Divine Guidance at its Highest Potential
The field has been alive with the activity of consciousness expansion this past month. I feel our beingnesses stretching and accommodating the immense growth and expansion that is now occurring daily. I commend each and every field being at this time. It takes great courage to be willing to shift into higher octaves, with greater landscapes, when we are not certain of what is happening.
The field is alive with possibilities and daily messages coming through about forming allies with Damanhur, and with beings we may have not met yet, as well as with others who share this path whom we may know but have not met in the Spirals. We have been preparing. This brings to mind a humorous scene in “Alladin”, where the bird says, “I’m molting!” It feels that way…molting smaller feathers for larger ones.
We are threading our consciousness and awareness together to form an amazing matrix, one ally with another and another. The configuration of the allies we are gathering and forming with is astounding. Have you been dreaming? Have you met new allies in dreams? Who are they? There are so many questions, and new ‘awarenesses’ popping up, so many that we cannot keep track of them.
What rises in your sitting with this language? What peaks your curiosity about being with allies of the Field of Tantra Maat? Where does your being fit in with this equation? I can feel us all interconnected and woven into the equation, as beautiful gem-colored elements, necessary for the new alliances to be born. We have all worked with such diligence, doing what is ours to do to make this activity happen. And now we shall rock Italy with the purity and love of just being together for the sake of being alive!
We are with each other in this powerful month of rebirth, restoration, awareness and expansion of consciousness. Hold onto each hand, as we spread the love of this field, and step into new landscapes of Being!

In April’s Tools to Thrive, we had an amazing conversation in which we explored differences and similarities between self-actualization and thriving. We also looked at some myths around thriving which distinguish living from the fear-based, separation-based system we were born into and the unity-based system so many of us crave.
For May, we will investigate the idea of boundaries. Many years ago, in one of my early psychology classes, the lecture included discussion of the need for healthy boundaries. Most of us would agree with that statement. I did at first, those 30+ years ago. However, something just did not sit right, and I began to listen, observe, and think. Before I came to know Tantra, I had been observing what was termed ‘reality’, noticing the foundations of fear, separation, knowing your place, and other conventional definitions of being, doing, having. Continuing my studies in psychology over the years had me see that the idea of boundaries may not be healthy at all – in the way referred to by traditional psychologists. At some point, I recognized that the word ‘boundary’ or ‘boundaries’ could have additional definitions, which I call ‘boundaries as life design.’
There is a great deal of difference between understanding human nature from a foundation of health as the innate starting point and what we have been immersed in from within the system we were born into which studies human nature based on those who are considered ill or broken. One view of human nature is life-enhancing, even including the moments of disturbance or imbalance. The other view of human nature is life-defeating for several reasons, including that if one is starting from being defined as broken, it is nearly impossible to dig oneself out of that identification. It is similar with boundaries: they can be life-enhancing or life-defeating.
I invite you to join us in re-designing and re-tooling boundaries for ourselves and our ability to thrive individually and in unity. I look forward to seeing you there!

In our part of earth, spring has arrived just as winter is moving into the southern hemisphere. Spring brings us all present to the awakening of life in plants and animals. We are energized and joyful. My eyes delight in the color of the daffodils and tulips in my front yard and in the blossoms forming on the trees. The warm breezes relieve the constrictions of winter cold on our bodies. It is time that we open to the flow of life within us. The more we are present to the flow, the more light and love enters our days. I hope that the awakening of this time fills your cells and your soul.
Ann Byrne of Ireland sent the following out on Easter and I wanted to share it into our shared field.
Abu – be ‘up’ in Irish— so ‘Up the
Resurrection’ (with just maybe a hint of the irish rebel in there with a
glint in her eye – lol )
presence to presence….
Stillness reigns as the rising Sun continues to move across the heavens – shining on the quiet ocean like dancing diamonds. There is no bleating now, all lambs be with their mothers -content – Birdsong rings and even the cuckoo has come to the table, trees are growing so fast you can see the changes unfolding as new life makes its claim. The apparently dead tree of November is overflowing with blossoms…The eternal is always dancing in and out of clay form through intimacy unlocking the layers to reveal itself
May eternity dance in your form the joy of celebrating the alchemy of love that plays- you – formed you- woken you – and perhaps at times shaken you all the way through – No matter what the tradition you have allowed LOVE to shape you…. – blessings be. from Eire – and this heart
Last she shared this poem from Rumi
The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
Across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open,
Don’t go back to sleep!
