In Sufism, we are taught to remember three things that we love but will never be ours: Our Egos, our Bodies, and our Belongings.

We put so much energy into these things but time is passing and we forget what we actually have, and how rich we truly are.

The more we acquire, the emptier we become.

We are only distracting ourselves from our own inner harmony.

Strive to create, to find what nourishes you, and to persevere into bringing forth your gifts.

Grow into the human you have always wanted to be.

Spread your limbs of authentic expression out into the light. Flowers will blossom, emanating the fragrance of your genuine truths, and the fruits of your integrity will eventually drop down to nourish others, so they may plant their own seeds of hope and inspiration.



We always have a choice.

At every present moment we can decide how we want to perceive the situation. Then we begin to remember that we can create our own vibrations we want to contribute to the situation at every moment.

When we remember that we are simply bodies of energy, (vibrations of life), then we remember that our emotions (the vibrations we are presently experiencing), are our decision to feel.

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, but on its most subtle level, as a vibration, it can be altered. So, as living, walking bodies of energy, it is up to us of which vibrations we want to embody and contribute to our environment for all of the bodies of life around us to experience.

If you want peace, then choose for your own energy to be peaceful.

Your perceived universe will only become vibrations of peace if you, the body at the center of your universe, chooses to become a body of peace.

If it is irritation or sorrow your body feels, acknowledge it. There is a reason why it was brought into your energy field. Acknowledge it and ride it like a wave. You can choose how you want to respond to it. It is a living, tangible vibration that wants to be heard and felt. So give it the recognition it is asking for.

But with careful patience and compassion, find the source of this energy. Once the source comes to the awareness, the symptoms will subside. The energy will fade, and turn back into the peaceful state you naturally are.

Let the waves of energy flow into your vibrational sphere, sadness, fear, anger, anxiety.. Let them flow around you and be consciously aware of each one. Find its source, and then let it fade as naturally as it arose.

Deep down below the commotion of the waves, the quiet waters of content reside. Remember this is your truest nature, the vibrational awareness of the ocean’s still depths. The vibrations above are but temporary, influenced simply from day to day interactions. It is the immortal depths of below that you will find your inner stillness.



Apologize to yourself.

Forgive yourself.

And make a promise that you have learned from your mistakes and will not repeat them.

Nourish yourself. Exercise discipline, moderation, and awareness.

Quit all of your addictions.

Brush them off like dry sand.

Avoid excessive indulgences.

Discover your own truths.

Scrape away the unnecessary and cherish what is essential.

Love your light. Let it shine.

Simply being


May all beings enjoy the taste of accomplishment in their lives.

May all beings bask in the glow of sensual love, embracing their partners not out of pride or greed, but from sheer joy of being alive together.

May all beings enjoy the smell of waking up in their best dream, waking up to a brand new day of paradise and sheer excitement of what this new day will bring, alive in another day of this living dream.

May all beings hear their heart song as they exclaim their truths through their actions.

May all beings caress their own bodies with the loving tenderness they wish to receive.

May all beings feel the fantastic feeling of simply being. Nothing to fight for, nothing to prove, just being.

May all beings feel the comfort of Gaia’s embrace. Her all-encompassing request for everything alive to grow into its truest essence. The flowers bloom to the color of petals Gaia asks for, and they emanate the perfume Gaia dreams about.

No more, no less.

She asks for sunflowers to sing their truest essence while lotuses, cherry blossoms, and gardenias sing their own songs.

Each with their own vibrations, each with their own jazz.

No more, no less.

Orchids, dandelions, papaya blossoms, daises, and tulips, each destined to be a living song of Gaia’s symphony. All predestined of her strength and character.

As the flower grows from seed or bulb into her fullest potential, she must not fret about whether she looks okay, or smells different from the rest of the garden.

Her job is to grow two ways; one is towards the light, towards the sunshine, towards the emanating pull that gives strength, hope, nourishment, and love. The other direction of growth is deep within the soil, spreading roots throughout the thick dirt, weaving around obstacles with perseverance, searching for sources of nourishment, paving the way for herself, blindly stretching past comfort zones to continue growing strong and full.

The flowers and trees learned these principles of perseverance, strength, and growth, from the whispers of the sun and water.

We only need to follow nature’s example; find your light, find the illuminating brightness that asks for you to stretch and grow into your fullest strength. Find your water that nourishes you, that asks for you to overcome every obstacle to reach your source of inspiration.

Grow stronger in your authentic expression so you can emanate your own fragrance of joy, your own symmetry of confidence, and your own unique hues of brilliance.



In order to heal, one must begin with solitude, open ears, and a genuine desire for self-love.

Quiet the mind. Ask for it to melt into content with this present moment.

Everything is okay.

The mind is not needed at this time. She is an incredibly powerful and useful tool. She protects you and is wise, but right now she is not needed.

Still her dialogue with deep breaths and unconditional vibrations of love.

Thoughts, words, and dialogue are uneccessary at this moment. Only deep breaths and loving energy.

This allows the body and spirit to become open to its own healing love.

Genuine vibrations

15251751_568476603347078_377253451786092544_nYou are Protected.

You are Here.

You are Loved.

You are Strong and Capable.

Never let anyone make you feel anything less.

These are truths of your existence.

Stand within their genuine vibrations, walk with the armor of truth and let all falsehood be too much of a nuisance to carry.

Stand on your feet with your chin up, proudly walking with your own self-knowledge.

No one to impress, no one to compete with.

Enjoy your clear vision and see your own true journey.

Nothing is greater than self-realization.

Sink into the depths of your own being, indulge into every craving, paying close attention to how it makes you feel.

You are exactly the type of flower Gaia dreamt of, emanating your own unique patterns and fragrance.

Sinking into the awareness


Walk fearlessly down your dimly-lit path.

Respond carefully and watch the environmental forces vibrate around you.

Every second passing is a new gift of a vibration from Gaia, responding to every preceding influence.

Your very thoughts hold an extremely powerful set of vibrations, as they light the way for words to become speech, speech into beliefs, beliefs into mindsets, and mindset into fixed habits with consequences.

So sink back into the full awareness of your thoughts by lowering their volume to a simmering bubble. Ask the thoughts to whisper low enough for the vibrations of your breath to be heard.

Hear the joy of gratitude reverberate as you breathe in a smile.

Smile for your family.

Smile for hot tea.

Smile for clean laundry.

Smile for pink sunrises, purple sunsets, and sunny days of blue.

Let that smile guide you towards your next breath, your next footstep, your every leap into trust’s grace.



Become the meditative awareness.

Sing the flow of Gaia through your actions.

Speak the lessons of our ancestors.

Walk with the rhythm of Gaia, hear her drumbeat coursing through your pulse.

Taste the joy of your own essence, exuding from your every limb of authentic expression.

Drink the fountain of your own consequences, spilling your abundance of honesty, integrity, and immortality all over your verbs.

Carefully admire the fruits of your journey, make sure to see all of the sprouted seeds of your karma at your feet.



The anxiety breathes into confidence;

Confidence wipes its brow with trust.

Trust holds hands with awareness, who cradles self-love.

Self-love coos at the warmth of Gaia’s songs and Earth’s gentle drum.

Earth sways to the rhythm of the stars, as the stars sing their own jazz.

Starts collide into one another, infinitely exploding for the universe’s firework display.

Love fueling the fires of life, infinitely, and with gratitude.

“May every move we make and every breath we take enrich all divine perception, creation, and love.

May every body, mind, and soul, be enriched immensely.

May every being experience feelings of safety, faith, grace, ease, bliss, joy, and wonder.

May there be sovereign communities with infinite diversity that co-create harmoniously.

May all beings feel the enrichment of focus, clarity, concentration, and meditation.

May there be compassionate communication of positive, present, personal, and precise language.

May all beings experience the enrichment of praise, gratitude, the arms of love, self-reliance, poise, learning from failure, graciousness of time, generosity, and reverence.

May all beings feel the wonder of infinite magic including their wildest dreams filled with humor, joy, and enthusiasm.

May we move deeper and deeper into the Golden Age of Miracles.

For the benefit of all.”

-Cole Kastner



“In a true state of grace, there is no longer a sense of time or space.

Suspended and weightless, you are held by the same invisible forces that cradle the stars and planets.

You realize your breath is indeed the heartbeat of the divine as it echoes through the galaxies and beyond.

And in that one extraordinary moment of stillness, every moment of your life is retold in an instant and all you know for sure is that life is but a dream, and living grace is all that is real.”
