Never Underestimate the Power of Real Love in Action: No Greater Force In the World

Real Love In Action

Real love is not some fluffy ideal. It’s the only power that can truly change the world.

I write these words from a place of both love and outrage. Outraged that the violence of war continues to destroy the precious lives of so many people from Gaza to the Ukraine to cities throughout the world. That innocent children, parents and families are forced to suffer such indignity, such pain and hardship. And that our governments continue to fuel this darkness with the support of our tax money, and in many cases our civilians.

But anger and outrage mixed with sadness is a force does little to alleviate the problem. Mixing Real love and compassion into the fire is our only hope. And I’m not talking about the fluffy ideal that we must all get along and love one another, however noble that may be. I’m talking about living real Love with a capital L.

Knowing Real Love means that no matter what happens, and however sh*t it might get, you will be OK. Being Peace – I see this as a form of true activism. Because your Soul is the vehicle of this Love, and when you truly listen and heed the calling of your soul, you are like a walking Buddha. You can change the world by hearing the calling of your soul, and taking action in alignment with that. It’s an immensely powerful act.

Real Love has great power. It transmits infinite strength. And when called on in earnest it can transmute even the darkest states of being into places of great light and power. Calling forth this energy into yourself, choosing to walk in beauty, to be a beacon of light unto the world, is the greatest act of peace you can make. It has the power to truly bring balance into the world. Switch on the light — turn on the Buddha channel — it’s your choice. The power to choose your reality is in your hands, no matter what.

Never underestimate the power of Real Love in Action. No greater force in the world. Do you want peace…? Root down into your Soul, turn on the light in your Heart, and LET IT SHINE. This is what the world needs now… More than ever.

Love and More Love,

Satya

Enter the Fire of Love…

Fire of Love circle
“The Fire of Love has been an incredible source of community and support. The weekly writing prompts and missions helped me uncover some of my deeper held beliefs, exposing raw potential and freedom. I was stretched in ways that could only come from the caliber of participants within the group. I cherish the friendships I have made as we want nothing but the best for each other….” ~ Carrie Hensley, Fire of Love Member

Now open for enrollment… The Fire of Love Experience: A Journey of Spirit, Flow & Practical Magic (For Rebel Souls)

Announcing the New Fire of Love Experience! {For Rebel Souls… :|: Edge Notes}

Castles in the Air

Inspired by finishing Henry Thoreau’s “Walden” I created this in homage (with an image from last summer with my beloved Ginger in Buenos Aires)

You see, love is not just an idea or a feeling to me. It’s the root of all existence. It’s what drives everything I do…

The Fire of Love is not all hearts and emoticons and love affairs. Those are all fine…but what really gets me? The Source. Soul Power. The Soul of the Universe. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s what moves me. That’s what makes amazing sh*t happen… when you get the foundations underneath.

And that’s what the Fire of Love Experience is about:

Awakening the Fire of your Soul, and adopting a sustainable practice of centering into your core strength, so you can make real progress in living the life of your highest calling.

Setting the foundations and reinforcing them mindfully with your daily practice. Every day.

On Friday I launched and opened applications, and as of this coming Saturday, July 19th — the doors will be open!

What’s it all about?

See Here > The Fire of Love Experience: A Journey of Spirit, Flow & Practical Magic (For Rebel Souls)

I’ve been working with the Fire of Love energy for the past couple years, and it’s an energy that’s both fierce and grace filled — like a Buddha with a flaming sword.

Bringing that energy into play through the Fire of Love Experience has been an incredible experience — both in witnessing a dream come to life, and in watching it weave its magic through the lives of the Rebel Souls brave enough to dive in with me these past couple years since first launching from Costa Rica in 2012.

The program is different in many ways than ever before, reflecting my personal shift in approach. It’s lighter, cleaner, and better designed to suit the strengths of our members.

AND the entry fee is also the lowest it’s been since the inaugural launch — reflecting my own lighter approach and the fact that it’s an entirely new format, one that I’m really seeing as a Beta relaunch. (Meaning, there will be kinks to work out, and I’m hoping to continually improve the experience with the feedback of all participants!)

So, bottom line, it’s going to be something special — and this is your invitation to apply and join us today.

The time is now! I would love to have you with us if you feel the call. If you have any questions, you can ask them right there in the application. And please share this directly with any friends who are also on the level. Thank you!

Don’t Like What You’re Seeing? Switch On the Buddha Channel

Let-the-light-in-640

“A human being is like a television set with millions of channels. If we turn the Buddha on, we are the Buddha. If we turn sorrow on, we are sorrow. If we turn a smile on, we really are the smile. We can’t let just one channel dominate. We have everything in us, and we have to take the situation in hand to recover our own sovereignty.”
– Thích Nhat Hanh, Being Peace

I’ve found the default state of being for most people – the primary channel — is wound up and wrapped in anxiety. Dark, tight, squeezed, preoccupied, self-absorbed, anxiety-ridden… qualities that may be natural, but which are fundamentally opposed to a happy and effective life.

The Quiet Magic of Trees

Trees!

What marvels fill my sight each day!
No matter where in the world I may be
they reach out to me.
With so many arms,
their fluttering leaves rustle my Soul.
Magnetic poles of universal energy flow.
Silent Spirit sentries,
guarding the doorway to otherworldly dimensions.

At the Center of a Beautiful Life: MEDITATION (Calm, Nourished & Totally Lovable… Every Day)

“Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment
I know this is a wonderful moment.”
–Thích Nhat Hanh, Being Peace

Quan Yin Meditation

Quan Yin, Goddess of Great Compassion (with wish-fulfilling and healing willow branch)

Some time ago I began searching for a daily practice that could provide nourishment on all levels — from my outlook and state of mind, to my physical and spiritual well-being. I’d been meditating for years, and could make a simple switch to drop into a deep state of Fierce Presence at will, but I wasn’t able to sustain a daily meditation practice for more than a month or two without intermittent pauses.

The thing is, my meditation practice has been the cornerstone of my life path for many years — a sanctuary of sanity — and I knew I was holding myself back by not committing to a regular daily practice. So, I resolved to cultivate a practice of mindful awareness on all levels, every day, led by my morning meditations. Since then I’ve experienced remarkable stretches of clarity, and some fascinating revelations!  Continue Reading →

Breathing and Being Peace with Thích Nhat Hanh

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”
– Thích Nhat Hanh

thich nhat hanh omThích Nhat Hanh (born October 11, 1926) is a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist. He lives in the Plum Village Monastery in the Dordogne region in the South of France, traveling internationally to give retreats and talks.

I witnessed one of his talks at the Riverside Cathedral in New York, just after September 11th, 2001. I can that say without question he is the living embodiment of his teaching.

Here is an excerpt from the book, Being Peace by Thích Nhat Hanh:

“From time to time, to remind ourselves to relax, to be peaceful, we may wish to set aside some time for a retreat, a day of mindfulness, when we can walk slowly, smile, drink tea with a friend, enjoy being together as if we are the happiest people on Earth. This is not a retreat, it is a treat. During walking meditation, during kitchen and garden work, during sitting meditation, all day long, we can practice smiling. At first you may find it difficult to smile, and we have to think about why. Smiling means that we are ourselves, that we have sovereignty over ourselves, that we are not drowned into forgetfulness. This kind of smile can be seen on the faces of Buddhas and bodisattvas.

“I would like to offer one short poem you can recite from time to time, while breathing and smiling.  Continue Reading →

In Homage to the Written Word…

A written word is the choicest of relics. It is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art. It is the work of art nearest to life itself. It may be translated into every language, and not only be read but actually breathed from all human lips;—not be represented on canvas or in marble only, but be carved out of the breath of life itself.” – Henry David Thoreau, “Walden” (Free on Kindle / iBooks)

With the rise of self-publishing, and web shenanigans all ’round, can the written word still be considered a great art?

Look through the bestsellers in Amazon and iBooks any given day, and you’ll find dozens of popular fiction novels. Genre fiction or just junk fiction? And nowhere is this more true then in the top digital book lists. Perhaps the rise of the $2.99 ebook is ushering in a new age of popular junk fiction…

Now, I have no judgment against popular fiction. I’ve found it as entertaining and illuminating at times as the very best of film and television. (Of course, we’re talking about film and television here.)

There is one thing about the written word, though, that no video, film or TV episode can claim, and that is… Agility.

Poised at the Brink of Eternity – in Dialogue with the Universe: The Power of Choice

light drops

“In any weather, at any hour of the day or night, I have been anxious to improve the nick of time, and notch it on my stick too; to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line.” – Henry David Thoreau, Walden (Free on Kindle)

I think what I want to be known for in this life is not necessarily just helping people awaken to their true nature — a worthy and wonderful pursuit — but really helping people to define who they are. To choose who they want to be, what they want to do with this wonderful manifestation of life that they have, and help them to hew to that commitment. To stand strongly by that, and let it engulf their lives with possibility — the infinite possibility of who they really are.

And that is a noble pursuit, it’s a challenging one, and it demands that you be willing to dive deep into this inquiry of who you really are.  Continue Reading →
