the information age

So I have been told that we are currently living in the “Information Age” defined as lots of information at our fingertips that is freely shared and accessible.  Some would say that there is a bit too much information – others would say that there is a difference between information and knowledge.  I would add that there is a difference between knowledge and knowing…the kind that includes not knowing…the kind that is available in the present moment…the kind that is about self awareness, not self importance...the kind that leads to profound connection...the kind that is evolving, unlimited potential in motion...the kind that is not thought with the mind as much as felt through the heart which in turn directs the mind. 

This path of knowing is a kind of slippery slope, because there is no map except the one you are discovering as you go and there is no guide outside of yourself – at times it is travelled with others though there will be signposts along the way –  while you will be in unchartered territory, at the same time it will feel strangely familiar – it is likely you will get lost before you find anything, but what you find is parts of yourself – there will be discomfort and pain that oddly enough will make room for waves of joy and gentleness of well being.  Everything you need for this journey is completely accessible inside of you, so no need to pack anything except the radical truth of who you are which requires no gear or protection. 

It does appear that we are living in the "Information Age" - seems the source of the information is worth noting.

enough is enough

How many of us feel caught in the web of never enough time - to do all that tugs at us? How many of us feel that there is not enough room/space - to include a career, raising a family, an intimate relationship, friendships, passions? How many of us feel that there are not enough money/resources - to do all that we want to do or to quit a job or change a career that doesn't seem to fit, go to school or on a vacation or simply pay our bills, etc. How many of us feel that we are not enough - in the way we experience ourselves or the way we perceive being seen or appreciated by others?  This seems to be another conversation that continually arises in our human experience. I can't help but feel that the core of this discomfort, as with all that seems to be unfolding in this human dimension, is in the direction of our own beliefs born out of our perception. From my direct experience I will suggest that the idea of not enough is not true. I invite you in this moment to genuinely consider the possibility that there is absolutely and unequivocally enough. That, in fact, YOU are enough. Can you just imagine the implications of living as ENOUGH?
