WHAT’S NEW? A special little book that I love!

failI’ve always been a fan of Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön and I really enjoyed reading her new little book: Fail, Fail Again, Fail Better.  I can’t say it’s really a full out bookit’s actually a speech she gave for her grand-daughter at Naropa University (plus an interview with Sounds True at the end).

Although it is a short affair – it makes a powerful and important statement about how we can choose to have a different perspective about how we process “failure.”

I invite you to take a peek – it’s a quick read on your Kindle or iPad – but a message we all need to hear over and over again. There really is no such thing as failure – we just have to come to believe it!

Blessings & love, Sheri

manandcloudsAlthough many of us are deeply spiritual, we would be hard-pressed to say we were religious – in other words, that we were adherents of a particular belief system and practice.

Growing up, you may have found aspects of your family’s religion that didn’t sit well with you, seemed conflicting or even down-right insane. The inconsistencies in what you were learning may not have aligned with what you felt deep in your heart.

As a result, you may have decided to let those structures go and simply be “spiritual” allowing yourself the freedom to explore and discover for yourself, rather than being instructed “on the way it is.” Sound familiar?

Well, I’ll admit I’m one of those people. Over the years, many of my friends and family have felt that I have abandoned my faith and beliefs in God/Spirit/Infinite Consciousness and of course they are correct.

pensive-girlIn fact I am extremely happy to rid myself of all faith and belief when it comes to both spirituality and religion and I’d like to share why.

To start, let’s take a moment to define both faith and belief so we can be VERY clear about our communication together!

Faith is a belief that is not founded in any evidence.
A Belief is simply something you have a conviction about which may or may not be truth.

Hummm. I don’t see why it’s necessary to take it on faith or have a belief that God/Spirit/Infinite Consciousness exists. Doesn’t it make more sense to have the experience of Spirit ourselves than to believe a religious or spiritual system on blind faith?

As a society, do we believe that it’s only possible for the great masters to connect to the very thing that is inherent to us all? No religion actually says that an intermediary is necessary between us and Spirit (although at times that might seem to be inferred). Because if that is so – then we are saying that we believe “I am not” rather than “I am” divine consciousness.

The key is to make that connection with infinite consciousness for yourself. Then it’s no longer necessary to have faith or a belief. But if you have memorized your religious beliefs and there is nothing behind them – that is simply being attached to a belief for the sake of feeling safe in the world.

When given the opportunity to detach from our ego-minds, it is our very nature to have communion with divine consciousness. Only our rigid attachment to our ideas, beliefs, rules and “knowledge” about God, keep us separate from God.

looking-at-mountainsIt’s challenging to put religious or spiritual principles into action when we haven’t had the experience to ground them into our daily lives. That’s why many folks who follow a religious or spiritual belief system don’t live the teachings and appear hypocritical.

It’s tough to live what you have never experienced, and really it’s not their fault as they are doing their best at the level of consciousness they are functioning from – it’s the system’s error.

I feel blessed to have a teacher who did not want me to believe him but instead pushed me to practice quieting my mind and making that connection myself.

I am so grateful because now I know with every cell in my body that such a consciousness exists (because that exists within me and in every living being) – even though I cannot tell you what that entity is – as we will never be able to define that which is infinite in nature.

What I recognize is that the last thing we need is more mind and behavioral controls, more belief systems, and more egoic structures to take us away from truth.

And what I pray for is more experienced teachers, and their unconditional love and encouragement that this communion is possible for all – regardless of what tradition they hail from. Please share your thoughts with me – I am curious as to what you feel!

With all my love! Sheri
