When we have passion for something, such as our life’s calling, our life’s work, the expansion of ourselves—the Universe supports us!
Our life becomes enjoyable, meaningful, FUN!
When we follow our soul's calling, we are gifted continually with miracles of synchronicity, Divine guidance, and Flow that lead us to our highest possibility.
The thing to remember, if you want to live an enjoyable, meaningful, FUN and passionate life, is this: it’s always, always, ALWAYS about answering your soul’s calling.
When we listen to the small voice—the mind/ego/personality—we get tripped up with fear, anxiety, shame or whatever negative feeling comes up. The small voice leads us to worrying that we aren’t good enough to live our dreams, or that we can’t do it for some reason.
But when we view the situation from soul perspective, we realize that these fears are unfounded!
The key to a passionate life is to let go of the small voice, and listen to your soul. It will always lead you where you really want to go
If you're not sure what your soul's calling is—ask the Universe for guidance.

It's common to feel edgy, angry, anxious in this world.
Some days—especially these days— it feels like nothing is going our way, and everything is a challenge.
Yet inner peace by its definition isn’t based on outer events. It’s a way of looking of things, a way of perception. And most importantly: it is a way of understanding our true nature as infinite beings.
The core of it is this:
• We can begin to create inner peace by connecting to the Universe more often.
• We can begin to create inner peace by understanding that we are souls.
We can do this is many ways: meditation, prayer, stillness, nature. But the key remains the same: The more often we connect to this beautiful state, frequency or vibration, the more attuned we get to this level of consciousness or understanding. The more infused we are with this frequency, the more we live there all the time.
In other words: we experience peace, so we see things more peacefully, so we experience more peace, and so on.
What we pay attention to expands… this is the same with spiritual practice.
It’s a beautiful snowball effect of peace bringing more peace, and more peace becoming your reality.
Which is of course, a very fulfilling way to live.
We are doing it again... sunset redux.
In which we try to watch every single sunset of summer.
It's September now, and it's almost over... just a few opportunities left.
We did this in 2014, as you may remember in The 60 sunsets of summer.
We did it in 205, and in 2016. And this year, it is the same: bliss, bliss and more bliss, as the sun sinks down in the west and calls it another day.
Yes, there has been astounding stress this summer: heat and fire, hurricanes and floods, so much suffering for so many.
And yet, the sheer beauty of it...
In all of this suffering, how can there also be so much bliss?
There is the sun, first high in the sky over the river.
There is the blaze of color and saturation and glow.
There is the sun sliding down till it hangs over the rim of the horizon.
And then there is the drop: as the orb slides beneath the earth.
A few moments later: the Fahrenheit drops, and night begins its night call: birds, crickets, frogs enter chorus.
Last night, the Universe did all over again, perfectly: As the sun dropped, we were listening to Wah! sing "Shiva", and at the moment Wah@ sand "Shiva," the wind picked up and a breeze sang though the trees.
So much bliss! I was completely gone.
To watch the sunset every night is a spiritual practice.
It is a call to meditation, to connection, and to the repeated, insistent cognizance of our place as a human on the earth, and our place as a soul in the Universe.
We often think that creativity is a magical gift that only a few people have.
That some people are born writers, or artists, or musicians, or dancers.
Either you've "got it" or you don't.
In truth, creativity is simply an aspect of awareness.
It's about learning how to open the "tube" in which Divine information flows.
It's about getting out of our own way, and learning to let that flow happen.
Another way to look at it: getting creative ideas isn't about "forcing" or "trying" or "working. It's about receiving them.
The same way that we receive images and information in meditation, or we receive the whispers of the Universe when we are out and about in our day—this is how creativity happens, too.
What I find is that when we gather information from the Universe, we are always informed at the deepest level. For example, if you are writing a novel, whatever creative ideas arrive to you, always have to do with your soul's journey too—it's not just about the characters or plot. If you are painting a painting, what you express is always what your soul is working out—it's not just about what finds its way to the canvas.
For whatever reason, fall and winter are some of the very best seasons to do creative work. There is something about being done with summer, and being ready to go internal, to wander around and see what the Universe is placing in our path, as clues and answers to our creative process.
If you've never been a "creative type" why not?
If you're a "creative type" who isn't being creative, why is this?
If you need an infusion of inspiration, what happens when you let the Muse that is is the Universe, guide you?
P.S. Some of you have discovered my DailyOm course Writing with the Muse: this is very complete training on opening your creativity from a spiritual perspective.
