If you have arrived here, likely, you have already been down many roads seeking a greater understanding of yourself, seeking relief from physical or emotional pain, or from a more profound pain that often lies beneath—feeling separated from our fundamental source. This unsettled feeling may be experienced as a yearning, but what is yearned for is often unclear. This source has been called by many names: essence, higher power, oneness, divine light. Some refer to it as God.
We don’t need to look in obscure places to heal what unsettles us. Every moment is Truth if we are fully present in those moments, awakening to Reality being the ultimate Truth, the ultimate free event because it is absolute presence. However, even with a direct experience of awakening and the penetrating insights that may follow, we will not be automatically transformed in our daily lives if we are not transforming ourselves. We can aspire to more fully engage, to be the investigator, the surveyor of the land of our being, to bring Truth to untruths.
The writings offered here touch on many aspects of our everyday lives and are presented through the vista of a larger world view. The ability to place our uncertainties in a broader context can lead to Knowledge of our True Nature. When this understanding is applied to our everyday affairs, we restore ourselves to a balanced state—to seeing rightly.
We will often need many experiences to make the Now, Now Always. L.A
