Kyle with Roy Eugene Davis at Center for Spiritual Awareness 2015

This past week I had the privilege of spending a week at the Center for Spiritual Awareness, in Lakemont Georgia.

The Center is operated by a man named Roy Eugene Davis, who some of you may be familiar with. He has authored many books, and is an international speaker. He is the last living disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, and has had this Center since the early 70’s.

Besides the beautiful mountain setting and the many new friends made, it was amazing to sit and be led in meditation by Roy, and to hear his talks.

That Still Small Voice

kyle_ssi_001Yesterday while conversing with the Universe, I heard that small still voice reply to me; “The only thing wrong is that you are convinced that there is something wrong.”

What a concept this is.

Everything seems wrong to me sometimes. It seems as if I should have done things a different way. It seems like the Universe never gave me a fair break for all my hard work. Sometimes it just seems as if everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong.

Today my Spiritual Advisor likened me to a turtle that has been turned on its shell and cannot get back to his feet.

Practice Makes Perfect

Heather and IMy lovely wife Heather caught me tonight.

We were talking about me going to school, plans for the future, and things of that nature, when suddenly she said to me, “No. You sound like you are telling me that you are okay because of your plans.”

Then she started telling me, “You have to be okay with you right now as you are. Not because you have plans and goals.”

Once again, I was trying to define myself, or better yet, to justify myself.

Then she started telling me that, “You say everything will be alright when you get your degree, but when you get your degree, then you will need a church, and then you will need a bigger church, and it just goes on and on.”

Every Year I Cry

2nd gradeToday I got to walk my daughter into her second grade classroom.

This has become a tradition since pre-school, and each year I cry.

There is just something about it… We are celebrating on one hand, but on the other had, it would be okay with me if we could just stop time right here and now.

But we know better.

The river of life flows on in a never-ending stream of people coming and going. It is for us to find acceptance, and to see the beauty of the process of life, and to make the most of it.

Prosperity Consciousness

It has been nearly a month since my last blog, and that is because I have been going through some personal challenges.

I could create a list for you a hundred miles long of all the things that have gone wrong, all the things that have broken or stopped working, all the “problems” that I’ve encountered this month, but I won’t.

Because even in the midst of hard times I must stay in prosperity consciousness and declare that, “This is for my highest good.” “This is going to turn out in my favor.” “This is good, even though it doesn’t feel like it right now.”

I and Thy Father are One

“I and thy Father are one.”

Jesus told us this, and this same teaching can be found in any of our sacred scriptures.

The Tao Te Ching doesn’t contain the word, “God,” but instead uses the word, “Tao,” or “the Way.” But reading this text we are urged to become one with Tao.

The Buddha never spoke of God, but in Buddhism we are urged to go within. We are told that “Enlightenment comes from within us.” We are told that everything is already there inside of us, and it is only a matter of uncovering and discovering it.

The “Useful”

There is a great story about these two guys who cross the river in a canoe. 

When they get to the other side they are so happy to have gotten across safely. They are very grateful for the canoe, and one of them says to the other, “Boy, if it wasn’t for this wonderful canoe, we never would have made it here!” 

“Yes.” his friend agreed. “If it wasn’t for this canoe, we would still be back over there.” 

The two men decided that they couldn’t just leave the canoe, so they decided to carry it with them into town.

What Can We Do About Charleston?

“Everything we do is either an act of love, or a cry for help.” Marianne Williamson

If we go inside the mind of the “bad guy,” or the, “enemy,” or even the “terrorist,” we will see that they are absolutely sure in their resolve that they are right.

They are protecting themselves, they are doing what they have deemed as necessary, and when they act in violence, they are making a statement that they know will be heard.

They will finally be heard.

And it makes me wonder just how many are out there, who are desperately in need of help, and who aren’t getting it. How many people out there have no one to listen to them?

An Experience of Oneness

IMG_5718

Majestic Saint Simons Island Georgia.

Heather and Lily and I spent a few days on Saint Simons Island last week, and this is our favorite spot to vacation.

One day while the girls were swimming in the pool, Heather said to me, “Why don’t you take off and go for a bike ride?”

And away I went.

The neighborhoods there around Neptune Park and the Lighthouse are really beautiful and peaceful, and I have always loved the energy there.

I stopped by my favorite spot to meditate for a few minutes, and then got back on the bike and headed to the backside of the lighthouse, so that I could get on the sidewalk and ride beside the ocean.

Keep An Open Mind!

Kyle 2We may never know why people can be so stubborn.

Oh, yours truly is a Taurus, so I know all about being stubborn. Once, my Spiritual Advisor gazed over at me and said, “You don’t take subtle hints very well do you?”

And he was right. It seems that I am always the last one to know what everyone else already knows. I’m always surprised, and everyone else is surprised that I am surprised.

When my Self-Realization moment came, I picked up the phone and called a close friend of mine and said, “I finally figured it out! I am supposed to play music!”
