GVK explores deep spirituality

Christina Lundberg, Buddhist Film maker, and I explored the upside of a deep spiritual practice.  Because here is the fact of life~

It is our Divine birthright to Know and radiate our Higher Selves.

But, how do we move into that birthright? We move past self grasping.  We move out of the quest for self and into the Knowing of our Higher Self.  That, my friends, takes practice.  And for me, it is practice toward the goal of the Self that keeps me from losing my mind sometimes.

I lived half of my life thinking that everything that I saw with my eyes, felt with my emotions, and touched with my hands was all that there was for me to experience. Then I woke up. But, oh, that slumber was painful.  Because I think that I knew that there was something else ~ something bigger, more profound, more beautiful  ~ when I was little and I pushed it all down out to get away from the things that I could not explain.  That becomes the malady of our human~ness. We come here Knowing, then forget and sometimes never wake up. And that seems so silly to me! Why don’t we keep that remembering??? Sigh. I do not know. But, I do know that when I woke up out of that numbing pain, I was free.  And in that freedom of Spirit, I began to thrive instead of survive.

And that’s the goal right? To thrive. To share our unique light with this world. To become good shepherds to our Earth and to each other.  Because when we share our Light we receive more Light and so it goes, ad infinitum…

GVK knows the Divine Self with Marsha Mason

Marsha Mason is the perfect example of being who you are, not being what you do! She has had many incarnations in this lifetime so far. She was a highly celebrated actress in Hollywood, then she was the owner of the Abiquiu Farm in New Mexico (where she learned about Biodynamic Farming), and now has the natural skincare product line ~ Resting In The River  Natural Products ~ from her work on that farm.

Marsha’s deep spiritual practice with Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi has brought her to knowing who she is on a Divine level

And that’s the goal isn’t it?  To know oneself through the eyes of the Divine. We desire to but be who we are and let that inform what we do. That was the hardest part for me!  And it was coming into a deep spiritual practice that showed me that above all, I am a spiritual being. There are different aspects of me that go into everything that I do, certainly.  And those things are pieces to the puzzle that is me.  I’ve had over 50 jobs in my life and in every single one of those jobs, I brought a different aspect of myself to the forefront. Even as a parent, I bring only aspects of myself forward.

I can now say that I am at peace with who I am and happy to bring that to what I do. For it is only with the Divine that I am I fully100% who I Am…
