Rumifications …

“We suppress our authenticity because we want to avoid the pain of not being loved. By suppressing our authenticity, we create suffering for ourselves. Then we get into situations in life, and relationships, which are not authentic, for the sake of attachment. Now, it’s inevitable, almost inevitable in many situations, that if a person moved towards authenticity, it’s going to create the pain of maybe losing or threatening an attachment. They are going to have to be able to handle that pain. If they can’t handle that pain, they are going to stay suppressing their authenticity, which means they are going to create more suffering for themselves. So there is no painless authenticity.”

~ Gabor Maté

Daily Meditation

As you become more aware of who you are, you become more aware of how the Creator moves in your being through each step that you take, especially within your meditative state. If you invoke the Creator within and ask of that Creator to move through you this day, as all days, and to express itself to you in a way in which you are able to discern that there is an expansion of your awareness occurring throughout the day that you experience, then you become more and more familiar with this quality of the Creator that resides within your very being. Then when you invoke it, you are calling upon the greater portion of your being to make itself apparent to you, that you may see how the Creator meets you in every experience, in every day, throughout your life, so that you may see with clearer eyes, with an open heart, with clear communication, with the ability to create changes in your own consciousness as a result of processing the catalyst that you find yourself emerged in throughout every day.

“TO BE EVERYTHING AND NOTHING AT THE SAME TIME”, by Adyashanti

Is it possible to start to feel, in this very moment, that our bodies, our minds, and even our personalities are ways through which our spiritual essence connects with the world around us? That these bodies and minds are actually sensing organs for spirit? Our physical forms are the vehicle through which spiritual essence gets to experience its own mysterious creation to be bewildered by its creation, shocked by it, in awe of it, and even confused by it. Spirit is pure potential that contains every possible outcome. From the standpoint of our spiritual essence, nothing is to be avoided. No experiences need to be turned from. Everything, in its way, is a gift even the painful things. In reality, all of life every moment, every experience is an expression of spirit.”

Interpreting Khalil Gibran: Even when you are lost, you are already Home

Acharya Prashant - Words into Silence

“The significance of a man is not in what he attains,

but rather what he longs to attain.”

-Khalil Gibran, ‘Sand and Foam’

Question: Once during a discourse on the Bible, you too have said, “The more you know the Truth, the more you want to know; such is the expanse of the Truth, infinite.” If this be so, then what is coming back to Home? What is this whole thing about coming back Home? Can one ever really be Home? Khalil Gibran seems to say that more than arriving at Home, it is the longing for Home which is important.

Acharya Prashant: Listen again to what Khalil Gibran says. He says, “The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain.”

Man is a constant search, man is a restlessness; that is how man…

Musings …

“The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love.”

— John Muir

Daily Meditation

This is the secret to gaining wisdom and reaching Gnosis. I talk about all the time.

“The heart and mind must be brought into perfect equilibrium before true thinking or true spirituality can be attained. The highest function of the mind is reason; the highest function of the heart is intuition, a sensing process not necessitating the normal working of the mind.”

Energy Update | The Anatomy of a Smile, by Matt Kahn

One of my favorite lifelong spiritual practices is simply a willingness to smile.

A smile is an offering of goodwill as the spark of Divine energy in two people pulls back the curtain of perception to remember the light dwelling in all. A smile is a subconscious ethical agreement, exchanging the ways society interacts with strangers to the openness of engagement, now that eyes have made direct contact. A smile is a celebration of your untainted innocent heart, always ready and willing to burst with joy throughout moments of inspiration, no matter how broken down, beat up, or defeated the past seemed to be.

A smile is a declaration of freedom shining out from your eternally liberated nature, shouting from the roof tops through the cosmic language of silence, “I am here. I matter. I exist for a reason.” A smile is a gift of emotional generosity, like a gift certificate of healing energy, where the receiver can decide where such energy can be best used for the evolution of his/her soul. A smile is a confirmation of alignment with Source and being settled in your highest Truth, only revealing the need for deeper transformations the moment you look away, pull back, and hide.

A smile is a high five exchanged between angels affirming the perfection of their victory no matter how circumstances come to be. A smile is a remembrance of Heaven sent from the purest space within you to awaken the purity of all. A smile is a symbol of awakened heart-centered consciousness affirming all that is whole, right, and perfect about this moment exactly as it is. A smile is a spiritual cease-fire that only brings defeat to the parts and aspects that were never created to go any further. A smile is a moment of profound surrender, no longer needing to hold anything together or manage a journey that is too busy taking care of you to brief you on its plan.

Whether as a gaze of ecstasy exchanged by lovers, the admiration given from parent to child, support sent from one friend to another, or an offering shared by planetary neighbors, may today be an opportunity to remember the power of your smile.

As you take the time to smile more deliberately, openly, and authentically than ever before, may you rejoice in how often you are given opportunities to positively affect the quantum field of reality just by engaging the simplest and sweetest acts of kindness more often. May you come to know the happiness already within you that can be received with greater awareness the more often you open up and dare to shine.

Through the healing energy encoded in these words, I pass along to you the transformative effects of this powerful practice. From my heart to yours, I offer you this smile and invite you to pass it along to all the incredible souls you are meant to meet. May you receive it fully and share it freely for the wellbeing of all.

All For Love,

Matt Kahn

RUMInations …

A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the veranda,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.

We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden’s beauty
and the birds singing.

The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.

You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.

The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.

In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

— Rumi

Energy Update | with Matt Kahn

While it is your greatest desire to be fulfilled, there is often a belief suggesting that only through your specific personal desires can fulfillment come to be. This can create a tendency of chasing after the fulfillment of each desire, not knowing it is the constant pursuit of desire that blocks your ability to receive fulfillment. When too much seeking isn’t balanced with moments of gratitude and reflection, it creates aversions to circumstances where anything other than evidence of your personal desires are judged, overlooked, and denied.

Along a heart-centered path,
desires may come and go and whether fulfilled or not, true fulfillment is not measured by how many personal desires are realized.

Instead, fulfillment is honored as an awareness of grace or how deeply you are willing to receive the gift of each miraculous moment. When attached to desires, you are likely to be only looking for evidence of new things coming your way. If such proof isn’t found, you are likely to perceive another unfulfilling day engaging with the boredom of the same old things.

As you learn to separate the reality of fulfillment with the fantasy of personal desire, you are able to be nourished, sustained, and rejuvenated by your own vibration of light throughout each passing breath. While this doesn’t mean you won’t or shouldn’t live out the fantasy of any desire, you no longer rely on it as your imagined gateway to fulfillment. Instead, it is your willingness to receive all that is given, while daring to view the same old things from new and exciting perspectives that allows a depth of fulfillment beyond your most insatiable desires to blossom into being.

This is the heart of true integration.

On Consciousness …

There is only one consciousness, and it permeates the fabric of the Universe and is within all things. Check out Mind Over Matter – Consciousness and the Nature of Reality to explore this idea more deeply. We are all individuated threads of universal consciousness — that’s why it is sometimes referred to as SOURCE consciousness.

This one consciousness created multiple focal points of awareness within itself birthing many selves. These many selves are all part of and within the One Self and one of them is YOU — that makes the One Self is your highest self!

You are WITHIN Source, and paradoxically Source is within you.

Musings …

All of us struggle with our identity. Maybe, we date someone we shouldn’t … maybe, we’re related to someone we wish we weren’t. Maybe, we need rules … maybe, we shun them. Maybe, we need to shake who we always thought we were and try on something new. Maybe, we should loosen up … maybe, we should take a leap … because when we do, maybe we just might surprise ourselves.

Energy Update || All For Love, by Matt Khan

The month of March always represents an auspicious level of initiation for the evolving heart-centered seeker. Using numerology as a guide, March contains a period of activation beginning on 3/12 all the way through 3/21. Each date adds up to 3 on both sides representing the master builder angel number 33. This indicates a month of crucial activations that create building blocks for the embodiment of higher vibrational realities. While such higher realities are revered for the inspiration, elation, harmony, and joy they represent, often times, such frequencies can offer a bit of a challenge as they move into your field. The fact that 2019 adds up to the prime number 3, allows the period between 3/12 to 3/21 to represent a radical period of growth and expansion, particularly in the activation of crystalline DNA. Such DNA gets activated when the light of your consciousness is ready to be fully aware of itself in physical form.

As strands of crystalline DNA get activated through this period of rapid growth and expansion, it transmutes out of your field the outdated 3D carbon-based DNA that has maintained identity with material realities at the exclusion of your soul. Because you have spent the majority of your Earthly life identified with patterns rooted in carbon-based DNA, such layers of transmutation can manifest as fatigue, exhaustion, extreme sensitivities to sound, reactiveness to the ego patterns of others, feeling displaced, scattered, unable to find your center, or focus. I refer to this process of transmuting carbon-based DNA as the phenomenon of cellular purge. During these moments of energetic and existential upheaval, it is crucial to stay hydrated and grounded in present moment awareness.

While next month ushers us into the April showers of renewed creativity, drive, passion, and determination, March urges you to honor the significance of your evolving Mastery by keeping your life as simple as possible. As crystalline DNA gets activated, you may find yourself feeling mentally empty, expanded, or buzzing from a natural high. If identified with mind, the mental emptiness may be perceived as brain fog. As expansion occurs, you are dwelling in the body while perceiving from the outer layers of your energy field. Often times, there is an orientation period where we learn to function as human beings under the heightened levels of awareness many have only accessed during lucid dreaming or deep meditative states. Because these expanded states are rooted in the beingness of light, it can trick your brain into not knowing how to “do” or accomplish tasks when feeling so relaxed, elated, and altered. The key is moving slowly to allow being and doing to unite as one embodied expression of consciousness in action.

This union of being and doing, which highlights the synthesis of crystalline DNA in human form, means you are able to function, but the littlest things may exhaust you, as you adjust to life at a higher altitude of consciousness. Please be kind to yourself and patient with others, as we each develop the endurance to be and do simultaneously, instead of oscillating between being and doing as two opposing states.

The key to this climate of masterful growth and expansion is integration.

This is precisely why I was inspired by the Universe to create the Total Integration Program — to help heart-centered empaths and energetically sensitive souls, such as yourself, adjust to the new 5D reality on a mental, emotional, and energetic level as directly and gracefully as possible. As you are ushered into life in a 5D timeline, more of the outdated 3D imprinting and overlays known as ancestral and familial conditioning continue to drop away and return to Source. Instead of focusing on trying to clear away such conditioning, it is more essential to abide by the laws of 5D consciousness by getting to know life in expanded states of consciousness, so to allow what no longer serves you to dissolve on its own accord. By taking this more integrated approach, you invite the forces of light to work on your behalf to resolve each layer of density.

May this month of 333 activations bring to light more of your spiritual mastery, allowing you to receive the extraordinary gift of perceiving your beauty, uniqueness, and perfection from the perspective of Universal truth. There is so much more to you than meets the eye and now is the time to begin seeing yourself as you truly are. Even as Mercury Retrograde adds another layer of technical glitches and unforeseen setbacks to the depth of masterful evolution occurring this month, it pales in comparison to the infinite power making its presence known as a light waking up within you that cannot play small for even one moment longer.

All For Love,

Matt Kahn
