Community matters

We can talk all day about the etherial plane and the presence we constellate in breadth. But it is community. It is human. And should not be forgotten. I love the veils and visualize the mantra as I meditate. I am not who I think I am. But.....the big but. I am not Buddah. I have not evolved that far. I am still in the belief that I am a person, though I work on that illusion, I do. I need my community. Sometimes wonder if I even have one, of course doubts and fears seep in because I still identify as human. As human, I cannot survive without caring. Without giving. Community matters. Pick yours. give something away. It is good. Then sit and mediate. Let the light fill the world.

Please let me know what you think! And I will let you know when the big launch party is. Thanks to everyone for your love and support. I could not have written this book if you had not been open to my ideas.

Imagination within time

Spending many hours looking at the sky. Time passes. Imagination flourishes. Translate onto the page. Nothing is there. Does it matter? Where is the mark. The first mark. The one that leads to wisdom? Ah, it’s inside. Consciousness grows. Awareness deepens. Sometimes it’s enough. The power of now is now. Whether is appears on the canvas or page or not. Because I am the imagination, the vibration my being communicates out into the ethers is a result of process. To read more ... http://createmeditate.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/imagination-within-time/

Silence speaks

Waking in the morning with a head a full of ideas. Sometimes fragments, sometimes clear actions to take, but busy. Busy and loud. Like to start the day in silence. Listen to what the rich silence has to say. Which in a way, is a funny thought. Because the silence takes the constant thought and breaks it down into a rich, thick pool. It speaks in texture and meaning. So the words disappear. Ah, so nice. I find silence speaks the longed for language of the whole. So the ideas make more sense, ultimately. And in a way don’t really matter. So funny. How to explain? Ideas are like wayward children, easily distracted and distracting. They forget they are part of a whole. They. I. Same. So, in the pool of silence, they marinate and dissolve into the rich textures of now and always. Dissolution of thought, so nice. And what is left is an indescribable feeling of larger than. Of each pore filled with life so when the ideas bubble up again, they speak through the silence. Read more..

Meditation and Chicken Soup

Sometimes all it takes is a "minyan." A group of folks joined in spiritual intention to bring the spirit awareness to life in the heart and in the group. Sometimes all it takes is one. A solo spirit in concentrated awareness for intention to arise and thrive, so the spirit awareness to life and in life fills the heart and the home, and spreads throughout the community. Sometimes all it takes is you. Happy new year. Join me on Sunday, January 20th for a day of Meditation, Visualization and Chicken soup. email if interested: rhonda.schaller@gmail.com Love. Harmony. Peace of mind. This is wish for all.
