Om Mani Padme Hum

Bodhisattwa Avalokiteshwara (Called Chenresig in Tibetan Buddhism):
Om Mani Padme Hum

Rough Translation: 'Om, salutations to The Jewel of Consciousness (the mind) which has reached the heart's lotus.'

This mantra is practiced more than any other in the world. It is pre-eminent in producing a state of dynamic compassion in the sayer. Dynamic means that this compassion contains as part of it the ability to powerfully manifest in both subtle and obvious ways. One of the simple yet profound teachings which accompanies this mantra is the concept that when the mind and heart become united, anything is possible. The implications of this simple thought are staggering. If you want to change the world for the better, this mantra should be in your spiritual toolbox.

The Daffodil Principal

Several times my daughter had telephoned to say, 'Mother, you must come to see the daffodils before they are over.' I wanted to go, but it was a two-hour drive from Laguna to Lake Arrowhead 'I will come next Tuesday', I promised a little reluctantly on her third call.
NOTE:Lake Arrowhead is approximately 100 miles east of Los Angeles.

Next Tuesday dawned cold and rainy. Still, I had promised, and reluctantly I drove there. When I finally walked into Carolyn's house I was welcomed by the joyful sounds of happy children. I delightedly hugged and greeted my grandchildren.
'Forget the daffodils, Carolyn! The road is invisible in these clouds and fog, and there is nothing in the world except you and these children that I want to see badly enough to drive another inch!'

My daughter smiled calmly and said, 'We drive in this all the time, Mother.
''Well, you won't get me back on the road until it clears, and then I'm heading for home!' I assured her.
'But first we're going to see the daffodils. It's just a few blocks,' Carolyn said. 'I'll drive. I'm used to this.'

'Carolyn,' I said sternly, 'Please turn around.

''It's all right, Mother, I promise. You will never forgive yourself if you miss this experience.'

After about twenty minutes, we turned onto a small gravel road and I saw a small church. On the far side of the church, I saw a hand lettered sign with an arrow that read, 'Daffodil Garden.' We got out of the car, each took a child's hand, and I followed Carolyn down the path. Then, as we turned a corner, I looked up and gasped.

Before me lay the most glorious sight. It looked as though someone had taken a great vat of gold and poured it over the mountain and its surrounding slopes. The flowers were planted in majestic, swirling patterns, great ribbons and swaths of deep orange, creamy white, lemon yellow, salmon pink, and saffron and butter yellow. Each different colored variety was planted in large groups so that it swirled and flowed like its own river with its own unique hue. There were five acres of flowers.

'Who did this?' I asked Carolyn.

'Just one woman,' Carolyn answered. 'She lives on the property. That's her home.' Carolyn pointed to a well-kept A-frame house, small and modestly sitting in the midst of all that glory.

We walked up to the house. On the patio, we saw a poster. 'Answers to the Questions I Know You Are Asking', was the headline. The first answer was a simple one.

'50,000 bulbs,' it read.

The second answer was, 'One at a time, by one woman. Two hands, two feet, and one brain.

' The third answer was, 'Began in 1958.'

For me, that moment was a life-changing experience. I thought of this woman whom I had never met, who, more than forty years before, had begun, one bulb at a time, to bring her vision of beauty and joy to an obscure mounta intop. Planting one bulb at a time, year after year, this unknown woman had forever changed the world in which she lived. One day at a time, she had created something of extraordinary magnificence, beauty, and inspiration.

The principle her daffodil garden taught is one of the greatest principles of celebration. That is, learning to move toward our goals and desires one step at a time--often just one baby-step at time--and learning to love the doing, learning to use the accumulation of time. When we multiply tiny pieces of time with small increments of daily effort, we too will find we can accomplish magnificent things. We can change the world.

'It makes me sad in a way,' I admitted to Carolyn 'What might I have accomplished if I had thought of a wonderful goal thirty-five or forty years ago and had worked away at it 'one bulb at a time' through all those years? Just think what I might have been able to achieve!'

My daughter summed up the message of the day in her usual direct way. 'Start tomorrow,' she said.

She was right. It's so pointless to think of the lost hours of yesterdays. The way to make learning a lesson of celebration instead of a cause for regret is to only ask, 'How can I put this to use today?

'Use the Daffodil Principle. Stop waiting.....

Until your car or home is paid off
Until you get a new car or home
Until your kids leave the house
Until you go back to school
Until you finish school
Until you clean the house
Until you organize the garage
Until you clean off your desk
Until you lose 10 lbs.
Until you gain 10 lbs.
Until you get married
Until you get a divorce
Until you have kids
Until the kids go to school
Until you retire
Until summer
Until spring
Until winter
Until fall
Until you die....

There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Wishing you a beautiful, daffodil day!

The Gratitude Sign

Someone invented a way to say Thank You to those who serve our country. This video highlights those who are in our armed forces, however, there are many "front line" heroes at work in our world such as fireman, policeman, medica and teachers, to name a few. The sign can be used to convey a quick and unobtrusive show of gratitude for services performed.

White Dove: True Beauty

The next Addiction Alchemy Clan that is forming is the White Dove Clan. The process for naming a clan is a bit mysterious and not just a cute name that I think up. The naming of a clan is a very sacred process. In reality what is taking place is the reception of the soul call of a group of people who would like to come together to heal or empower something. The archetype or totem is how we communicate. I then channel the archetype and it gives me information I need to put out the call into the physical. I am never dissapointed by what is revealed to me and it is always more profound that anything that I could imagine. It is archetypal empowerment at its highest and finest when these archetypes download us with their energy. White Dove is no exception.

I had no idea what she was about, just a vague notion of peace and Holy Spirit. But I had never had the opportunity to channel this particular creature before. And I am blown away by what she is bringing in for the next clan.

You can read more about it on the website, but I thought I'd give you a preview of her power in a little movie created by an outreach program by none other than DOVE, (yes, Dove beauty soap), called Campaign For Real Beauty. Here's an eye opener....

White Dove Clan starts June 15th, 2008. Once the clan begins it is closed to the public.

The Divine Mother

A Letter from Deepak

The divine mother is an essential nurturing, life-giving energy. She represents the power of beauty, the power of intuition, the power of creativity, the power of compassion, and the power of love. In many Eastern traditions, this dynamic, potent energy is known as Shakti, which means feminine power. This power doesn’t reside only in women, however; Shakti is the divine spark and the flow of God’s love within each of us.

Etymologically, the word Shakti is related to the word Shekinah, which in Hebrew means “the feminine face of God.” For thousands of years, human beings have largely ignored or denigrated the feminine aspect, while focusing on domination, struggle, and ego. As we continue our evolutionary journey, it is absolutely important for both men and women to embrace feminine power. In fact, this may be our best hope for inspiring global change. Gandhi and Lincoln were markedly feminine in their image and vision; so were Jesus and Buddha. Their love, forgiveness, and wisdom transformed the lives of millions.

We can begin at an individual level by recognizing and cultivating the qualities of the divine mother within ourselves:

ShaktiUnderstanding. Shakti goes beyond the illusion of separation and sees the unity behind all diversity.
At the deepest level, we are all aspects of the same infinite Being in different disguises. Instead of imposing, Shakti communicates and seeks to understand.

Patience. Rather than forcing an answer or solution, Shakti has patience and waits for the solution to emerge. In this willingness to accept uncertainty, answers spontaneously emerge from the confusion and chaos of any situation.

Compassion. Instead of ignoring or suppressing emotions, Shakti pays attention to the emotions and signals of her body and can tell when someone else is ready to listen and act. She allows love and compassion to guide her.

Peace. Shakti is peaceful and allows herself and those around her the freedom to be as they are. No situation ever requires force. She accepts each moment as it is, knowing that the whole universe is as it should be.

Creativity. Shakti creates solutions where none were seen before. She knows that she has the ability to fulfill all her dreams because her essential nature is pure potentiality.

Wisdom. Shakti is wise. She sees the cosmic perspective, which always comes from love. She lives from the domain of spirit, which asks, “How can I help, how can I serve?”

Since most of us are conditioned to believe that we are separate, limited beings who have to fight and compete to survive in a hostile world, fully embracing our divine feminine may be a slow, gradual process. But it is an essential one. Shakti is the life force itself, the hidden power that turns matter into life, and the source of all passion and creativity. When we honor the feminine energies inherent in all of us, we can achieve anything.

Wow, what a powerful time! May 11, 2008, is Mother’s Day. This is the day during which we express our deepest love and gratitude to our Mothers and to all of the Mothers throughout the world. This day will be empowered by the number eleven. Eleven is the master number that is encoded with the frequencies to change the physical into the Divine. This Mother’s Day is also Pentecost, the day celebrated by millions around the world as the Day of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is known as the Holy Comforter, the Love Nature of God, and the Feminine Aspect of Deity within every Heart Flame—our Mother God. And to top it all off, in this year of new beginnings, these events are taking place within the embrace of the two very rare Wesak Full Moons, which occur on April 20th and May 19th.

Humanity in is the midst of an unprecedented purging and cleansing. This is a natural process that must be completed prior to the physical manifestation of the New Earth. One of the most critical things that needs to occur in order for us to transform our individual and collective lives into the harmonious patterns for the New Earth, is for the Divine Feminine within every evolving soul to be given her rightful authority. With the Celestial and Earthly celebrations honoring the Divine Feminine converging on Mother’s Day, we have the opportunity for this unfolding process to move forward a quantum leap. We are being called to a higher service. Stay focused on the Light, and BE the Open Door that no one can shut for this incredible influx of our Mother God’s Transfiguring Divine Love.


I AM aware of my presence in the world, and I know I AM One with all Life.

I gently remove my attention from the outer world, and I reverently enter the Divinity of my Heart.

I breathe in deeply, and on the Holy Breath I ascend in consciousness into the Heart of my Father-Mother God.

Instantly, I AM enveloped in the embrace of my Mother God’s unfathomable Transfiguring Divine Love.

I hear the melodious tones, and I absorb the celestial fragrance of my Mother’s Divine Love. Suddenly, I feel myself soaring into higher frequencies of Love than I have ever known. I pierce into the core of purity within the Flame of Transfiguring Divine Love, and the splendor of this Sacred Fire permeates my Being.

I AM experiencing a Love and Reverence for Life beyond anything I ever dreamed possible. Divine Wisdom is awakening within my Heart, and in a flash of enlightenment I know, and fully understand, how I AM to convey this Reverence for ALL Life to the mass consciousness of Humanity. This realization is seared into my conscious mind and will now be tangibly available to me whenever I need to recall this sacred knowledge in my service to Humanity and all Life.

In deep humility and gratitude, I accept the opportunities that are being presented to me within the Heart of God, and I volunteer to be an Instrument of God for this Transfiguring Divine Love. Through my I AM Presence, I consecrate my life to be the Open Door through which the full spectrum of the Flame of Transfiguring Divine Love will now flow to bless all life on Earth.

For a sublime moment, I assimilate this experience as I breathe in and breathe out, slowly and rhythmically.

With each inbreath, I ascend higher and higher into the multifaceted, celestial frequencies of my Mother God’s Transfiguring Divine Love. And with every outbreath, I breathe this Sacred Fire forth to consecrate all life evolving on Earth.

As each Human Being evolving on Earth is consecrated with the full potential of the Flame of Transfiguring Divine Love, their I AM Presence activates specific genetic codings within their RNA/DNA structures. These codings contain the Immaculate Concept of each person’s Divine Plan. This activity of Light empowers every Beloved Son and Daughter of God to fulfill his or her Divine Purpose and reason for being.

Through this activation, the mind and emotions of every person are purified and realigned with the Harmony of their true Being. This purification paves the way for the conscious mind and the super-conscious mind within each individual to merge and become One.

In this state of at-one-ment, each person’s I AM Presence comes to the forefront and takes dominion of their life. As this occurs, the life, body, mind and soul of each person is quickened and lifted into a state of enlightenment that clears the way for the fulfillment of the Divine Plan and the manifestation of the New Earth.

And so it is.

The Victim and The Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, which is just around the corner, I wanted to tell you about how powerful of a time this is for us. Mother's Day is no ordinary secular holiday as it would appear. It is much, much more than a kind gesture towards our own mothers, sisters, aunts and wives. What Mother's Day is and the energy it brings to all of us is the power of the archetype of MOTHER....the divine feminine within and without.

As we work with our root chakra we are mastering the archetype of Victim. So don't be alarmed if you've noticed how much blaming you are doing lately and maybe even that this has been a life long pattern. Never fear...mother is here. She is here to bring us out of the Victim and into our own amazing innate ability to nurture and care for ourselves. She shows us with her protective and guiding hand how to take responsibility for ourselves in a loving way.

So yes, honor your mother, and all the women in your life who hold this energy for the planet. But take that a step further and honor the Mother within you. Recognize her powerful, nurturing energy, her compassion, her ability to kiss a boo boo and make it instantly better. She is with you...right at this very moment. You carry this energy within you. She is encoded into your makeup.

The Victim is integrated when the Mother steps into her power. This gives you the foundation to move up your chakra system and become that much more in touch with your Higher Power, while maintaining the ability to ground your destiny out into the physical. She is the key.

Happy Mother's Day!
