November in the U.S.A. has a national holiday known as Thanksgiving. For me it’s a time of reflection on my journey of life and all those that have touched me. We are often carried away by our emotions and don’t always realize the significant parts people play in our lives.
October was birthday month for Margaret and me. October 17th was me and Margaret followed on the 19th. We would have celebrated her 73rd year and I just hit my 64th.
Enlisting the Self? Margaret would often surprise people when teaching or counseling them on ways to resolve a particular issue or situation they were in. She would tell them to simply put out the intention to the other person’s “Higher” Self to work with their “Higher” Self to resolve the issue. She was telling [...]
This is your play and everyone in your life is playing a supporting role in your little drama that we call the life experience. I remember Maitreya stressing that everyone is mirroring for you an aspect of yourself that you don’t want to see.
We often take what we call "Road Trips", where we jump in the car in the early morning and head off to some unvisited destination returning home under the cover of darkness.
Probably the most difficult aspect of my Spiritual Journey is what transpired on a personal level for me relating to my immediate family. As in most things I do, I either fully engage or don’t engage at all.
Life Lessons Here I am back in Seattle, where the majority of my Metaphysical adventure began with Margaret when we moved here in December of 2004. It seems on one hand as if it was yesterday, but on the other hand, it seems like another lifetime. I had so many experiences and opportunities for [...]
Watching Yourself Jean and I are visiting China for a month and I am experiencing something that I encountered the last time we were here. That would be, being quiet, not voicing my opinion, not talking for the sake of talking. This is difficult for me, because when among friends, I tend to speak [...]
One of the most impactful aspects on the journey of personal development is dealing with the emotional energy that comes to the surface as your adventure unfolds. I call it an adventure, because when things start to happen internally and externally it can get quite daunting and somewhat confusing. There will be highs, lows, [...]
Free Solo I recently watched a 2019 Oscar winning documentary called Free Solo. It was produced by National Geographic and follows a young man, Alex Honnold, that climbs vertical cliffs with only the aid of a chalk sack to assist his grip as he scales these incredible natural edifices all over the world. The [...]
BUT, I Already Dealt with That! Margaret would often give examples of past life energy coming to the surface that often surprised her, because she was “sure” she had already dealt with that “particular issue”, which often was about her difficult father and childhood! Fortunately, with Maitreya’s mentorship she came to realize and understand [...]
What Does 2019 Bring? How about Change? There is an old saying that the only constant in life is change itself! As Maitreya would often say, learning only happens outside your comfort zone. So, with 2018 in our rearview mirror and 2019 coming at us like a freight train, it’s time to prepare ourselves [...]
Being Thankful by Alan McElroyAs we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. which is followed by the numerous religious holiday traditions practiced here and around the world, I try and give thanks for my many blessings and reflect on what I so easily take for granted. For me, I am forever grateful for my unique [...]
Trick of Treat It’s Halloween, which was a night of fun for me when I was a child. We walked around our neighborhood in our costumes, rang doorbells, and said “trick or treat” or as we grew older sang some jingle like “trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!” and [...]
It’s October and that’s a special month for me, Margaret and my birthdays are October 19th and 17th respectively, plus I arrived in New Zealand to start our relationship together on October 20th of 2004. Ironically, I left the states on the 18th, was in the air for her birthday and landed on the 20th, [...]
