What often frustrates and derails the spiritual student is the quandary of how to live all the things learned along the path. The purpose of this blog is not to ask anyone to change a belief but to help those who are intent in their pursuit of living in alignment with their beliefs to put those ideals into their real lives.

BY WAY OF EXPLANATION
I am writing this in response to several inquiries as to why I haven’t
been writing recently.As one person
said, “Joanie, you have some ‘splaining to do.”
Whenever there is a lull in my writing it happens for one of 3 reasons
(in reverse order):
3)There is something in my personal life which
has a high demand on my time.(Fortunately, this doesn’t happen often.)
2)My ego is having a temper tantrum.(Also doesn’t happen often.) And, most of the
1)There is so much information “incoming” that
a) have to
take some time to integrate the energies associated with it
b) have to
take some time to figure out how best to articulate the information.
This current lull has been as a result of 1-b.Let me explain.
For the last 30 plus years the information has been coming to me most
often as one-lesson-at-a-time.In the
last few years this has begun to be increasingly not the case as I have been
pushed to see the integrated nature of things.
Because I realize that there is so much information out there, and there
is a finite amount of time available to people, I have tried to keep my “lessons/writings”
short and to the point, letting people be in their own process of integrating
the information and being available to those who have questions or want
When the lessons were coming one at a time the information could be
easily disseminated…even the casual information could easily be presented as an
“if this then that” scenario.As the
messages became more and more integrated with the greater movement into the
Oneness of All Things, “taking apart” the information for a simple
lesson/writing became more complex.Succinctly, “if this then that” showed that the “that” of the first
lesson became the “this” of the following lesson.In other words, nothing stands alone.
Hence, every time I thought about writing something I couldn’t separate
out the “parts” for the purpose of a short discourse.And, quite frankly, since I see everything as
mechanisms of energy and that is so clear in my mind, I find the process of
putting things into “language” to be very limiting and somewhat frustrating.
So, I have finally come to a place where I realize the “hit and run”
methodology of one lesson at a time has served its course.I have something that I will be writing about
within the next few days and you will notice that these new writings will take
on a 2-3 topic format as I attempt to at least disburse the information in “chunks”.Hopefully, this will work for the next little
bit and keep the information flowing.
