Dear Jeff, I love your answer to Lisa. Gratitude opens the space for abundance and growth, for the arrival of what is. I also love your introduction of pluralism, how spacious that is for me, and the paradox of your un-labeling and labeling to allow us to see life as

No question - just thanks for the metaphor of speed skating as contrasted with charging. I could feel the difference in my body - a beautiful sense of co-creation which will help me through a time of a difficult conflicted family situation in which I was trying to figure out

Hi Jeff, I am loving your course and have been embracing the practices wholeheartedly. As I practice the art of conscious contentment and gratitude for this moment I find my drive to "do" and "achieve" is falling away. I have achieved and done so much in life. There's nothing else

Hi Jeff, I am loving the experience, support, joy and challenge of this celebration! It all feels very nourishing. Thank you in particular for sharing about collective awakening both during our online sessions and in your response here to Polly. I am feeling my inner being wanting to better understand

Hello Angela, I would need to make a distinction between our normal and conditioned expereince of mind - the one that we have been trained to use to analyze problems and navigate our way through the world, and the more subtle capacities of mind that we can awaken in ourselves.

Hi Jeff, after the session on Friday, which was truly wonderful I went to the grocery store with my husband. I was standing outside the store enjoying the sunshine, still in the aftermath of the meditation session. A young boy, maybe six years of age, was outside the store too,

Dear Jeff, I've been tuning into the celebration by audio early the following morning, and it was as if you opened a window on the day each time. Today, as you closed in silence, I felt the need to share, but there are no words. Magic, like everything else, has

Dear Jeff, I have no problem with magic and have believed in it all my life. My stumbling block is having faith in shared magic. I have been comfortable--safe--with my faith in God, in creative mystery within my heart, and between a few trusted and beloved others, but have shied

Hello Jeff, Thank you for ending today's session without any questions, as they tend to disrupt the space we're in, while your remarks deepen and expand it. So thank you for that. I don't have a question, but I did want to share with you that just this morning I

Jeff, I have always found the concept of reflexive verbs amusing - "she brushes her teeth," " he dresses himself" and all the occasions where the body is acting upon itself - feeding itself, washing itself, putting itself to bed, exercising itself, etc. It recently occurred to me that perhaps

On Tuesday night I was in the Climate Change group. We went into our small groups. One person in the group made a comment about something Craig Hamilton said about meditation. The ceiling light in my room got twice as bright and stayed that way for awhile. I've never seen

Jeff - regarding a question asked by member Lori at the end of today’s class session, you suggested she let go of any bondage to the past, or any sense of limitation based on the past. Using this approach, I don’t know where to place my body’s recording of various

My question is about my “first contact” with the concept of time. Although this celebration has helped me relax into the awe inducing abundance of life, I haven’t been able to find that sense of freedom and abundance when it comes to this concept of there “not being enough time”.

As a follow up to today's session (March 30th), why do we try so hard to do whatever it takes so that we don't come back in another body if life is so wonderful?

Dear Jeff, first - thank you for the wonderful container you are creating for us to do this work. The group and our process feels really well held to me. Second - a question: As I look for my greatest passion, that which I love doing the most, my response

This came up for me from the teaching on perception going into speech and action - the tendency of my being to resist being in the world and "putting myself out there". It's one version of this familiar sense of "I don't want to be here", a resistance to life

Thank you for your response, Jeff. I related so keenly to your description of your experiences; thank you for that. I am navigating many of those feelings these days. In this time of accelerated evolution and recalibration, and, it seems, purgation, on the planet (individual and collective), I suspect it

Reading Dawn's thoughts, I find I do wish to comment. As another who deals with a lot of depressive experience, coming off my body, as well as long existential dark night cycles, doing this work takes me often to the sea bottom, to the places where I cannot, with will

Thank you Jeff for your understanding. Yes, as we both know serious clinical depression is life-threatening to the point of hospitalization. Thankfully have moved beyond that now, but also know given my history, that the blackness could descend again in spite of life's abundance. So much appreciate your thoughtfulness. Blessings,

Dear Jeff, Yesterday you said you'd like to hear what happened the next time I woke in the middle of the night with the feeling of anxiety and flipped that to the possibility of feeling the energy of the divine inviting me to surrender. I'm writing to tell you what

Midway through week 1, a familiar way my mind tends to see things came up: a choice between surrender (to what is unknown or cannot be known) and control (of what is/can be known), and my issue with discerning which is which, which has been the connundrum all my life

Hi Jeff - this really isn't a question but rather a comment. I'm loving your Embracing Spiritual Abundance celebration - thank you so much. However I do want to comment on your speaking of yourself as being depressed for a few days. For those of us who have struggled with

Hi Jeff, This has been an incredible week for me. Thank you! One thing that has come up for me though is a confusion about scarcity and abundance. I have many things in my life in abundance, but at least in some cases this is just a response to a

Hi Jeff, Not a question, but a share. I felt strongly influenced by todays's session on speaking, specifically not shying away from speaking about our spiritual awakening and mindset. A couple of weeks ago, I created my first blog about the subject, and my experiences parenting my son. I held

This morning, out of nowhere, I had a flash of absolute knowing that every thought "i" have comes from "I", Consciousness, and is my "idle" - simply because there is no one to have thoughts except Consciousness - but is coming through a physical mind that has been conditioned in

Hi Jeff, You've opened up a whole new awareness with what you said to me yesterday, about us relating to our thoughts as "me thinking" and start seeing it as just the mind "minding". Of course that's just what I was doing, and just knowing there is another perspective to

1. What is the difference between noticing my "idle" not doing anything else (say in sitting meditation) and continuing to notice it while I am going about my daily life? 2. What strikes me about what you speak about is how sometimes the way something is seen is true, but

The Scarity "I can do it" vs the Abundant "It is done" - my mind is not able to resolve this. A mundane example that comes to mind - "I can do the dishes". How would this translate to "It is done"?
