Note: Your mystic mission

You know what I’m talking about.

There’s something pulsing inside. It surfaces in the in between moments. Between one thing and another — let’s say you’re driving — even better, let’s say you’re on a favorite walk — nay, even betterer — you’re waking from a nap!

There it is — this something beckoning you to deepen your work. To deepen the way you experience your days.

Only you can suss it out. Maybe in a heart-to-heart with a trusted friend.

Maybe you pull out a notebook and just let it fly — whatever words spill out jumbled crumbled bumbled best, whatever whichever however they fall onto the page they will reveal what life’s asking of you.

Which is to live Turned On.

How do you start?

Turning off your devices is one way . . . then cocking your head to the side and really listening. The kind of listening that feels more like searching. As if you’re straining to hear the call of a loved one far off.

All you want is an indication from your true self on how to proceed.

That something pulsing inside you awaits one thing, a sincere invitation. If you ask in earnest, then listen as if for a whisper a room away, it will surface.

. . . . .

Could it be your mystic mission?
That summoning
you feel inside?

An answer to ‘What helps you see in the dark?’

In my latest Reader Circle eletter, I riffed off this Stephen Tobolowski quote:

A philosophy is only useful if it helps you see in the dark.

At the end of the eletter I asked: What helps you see in the dark?

Artist Dorrie Koller sent a reply I have to share with you — with her permission of course:


I have been in places so dark it would make black jealous. The only thing that has ever given me sight is gratitude.

Gratitude has never failed me. It has enabled me to forgive that which is unforgivable. Accept that which is unacceptable. And love that which is unloveable.

Gratitude has let me take myself off the hook and everyone else too! It helps me see how everything in my life, good and what we call bad, has all worked to create this special person that I call me.

It helps me fall in love again and again with my life, past, present, and future. It puts heaven right here and the miracles right in my own hands!

Note: I see through you

It’s true. Every now and then I glimpse this. The incandescence within people.

It’s not often enough. But when it happens it’s staggering. As if I’ve peeped into The Secret at the heart of the multiverse, where everything vibrates bright and beautiful and bursting with meaning.

So yes — this soul flame is in you too.

Fan it.

Express it.

Flaunt it.

Own it.

It’s you, you radiant one.

. . . . .

Wow —
I see through Surface You to Real You —
You are incandescent!
