New: Soul Caper mini-blog entries on Facebook

Slide7

Sometimes you can smell peanut butter a mile away, even in the suburbs.

Ever find a creative project morphing, over time, or maybe even suddenly, into a different form?  I am always     fascinated by the creative process; it knows its own way quite apart from the analyzing side of the brain.  In this case, I’m following the creative impulse that has been leading me away from this traditional blog format and into something new:  A few weeks ago I started adding insights from my own life experience to posts on Facebook, on my Soul Caper FB page.  These are posts from pages I “like”; everything from Eckhart Tolle to Heartmath to Byron Katie.… Read more

Some Thoughts on Fear-Based Voting

Recently I sat quietly and asked for intuitive guidance on how to know who to vote for, if at all.

I often remind myself that life does have direction; just stay open to it!

I often remind myself that life does have direction; just stay open to it!

I have never been in the position that I’m in now, in terms of choosing a presidential candidate for my vote. My first choice, Bernie Sanders, was not nominated.  So be it.… Read more

Sharing What I Know, Pt. 1

AAG10

A field of grace amidst the chaos.

Although I have shared in this blog guidance I’ve received, even, dare I say it, wisdom I’ve attained, I’ve never devoted a whole post to this topic – until now.  My “thing” in this lifetime, part of my purpose, is to be a guide – not by being pedantic, deliver us from people who want to “show us the way” – but simply by being who I am.  My main teacher has been the guidance that I’ve channeled since 1992.… Read more

The Limitations of Reason

Beauty Opens Doors Closed To Reason

When I look at how drastically my life has changed for the better since the age of 40, I see that it all comes down to one choice, the foundation on which everything rests: Placing the wisdom and accuracy of my intuitive knowing over the superficial, limited understanding of reason.… Read more

Being, Breathing, Emerging

View of Lake Roosevelt, in Arizona, from the hillside path to the cliff dwellings of Tonto National Monument.

Back home after five replenishing weeks in the magnificent Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona!  My mind spends the first few days of every visit saying, “You can’t just sit here, you know, you should be doing things.”  But each time, I find that I do less.  Appreciate more.  This is my emerging true north:  Letting go of all the thinking, all the should’s, in favor of just being.… Read more

Replacing The Loser with The Artist

My Story 015

My alter ego, Ethel. “Let me entertain you!”

I’m not the creative type.  This is what I told myself, this is what I believed for at least forty years.  What “type” I thought I was was a loser, as I elaborated on in such a riveting (!) manner in Part 1 of this two-part essay.  I can’t  force myself to say “blog entry” today; sounds like something I ate that didn’t agree with me.… Read more

Leaving The Loser Behind

I’m sitting there on December 26, meditating in my bedroom, when I have an interesting thought:  For most of my life, I employed all kinds of tricks to get people to like me, to not reject me.  I had a whole arsenal of clever manipulations.  I pick up my journal and start writing this stuff down; it could be good stuff.… Read more

Everyday Magic, Part 1: The Power of Intention

Life is meant to be magical, but we’ve drained it of its magical properties through our stubborn allegiance to logic.

Priorities shift.  Deeper desires float to the surface.

Priorities shift. Deeper desires float to the surface.

Einstein said that the intuitive mind is meant to be a sacred gift; the rational mind a faithful servant. Instead, we’ve created Topsy-Turvy World, where we delegate all our decision-making to the myopic servant, while scorning our sacred powers.  An error in judgment for which this world is now paying dearly.… Read more

Creating Peace of Mind Through Purifying Our Thoughts

IMG_0372

I need to trust more radically
To get to where I wanna be.

As the planetary rate of change spins us around like a top all day long, we are being called by our rapidly evolving mother, the earth, to spend time purifying our thoughts.  In this way we tap into an incorruptible vibrational field- the quantum field-around us, and we are able to stabilize in the midst of chaos.  Yoga alone can’t keep us centered.  Neither will just meditating daily; I know, I practiced Transcendental Meditation for eighteen years, and it wasn’t enough.… Read more

Finding Your Purpose Pt. 2: Trust and Allow

We are suffering from the end stage of terminal rationalism, the poor man’s compassion.   Looking at the devastation of the latest war, we IMG_6774say, “We need to bring more reason to the table.”  Every time I hear such a statement I substitute the word “compassion” for  “reason.”  Try it sometime.  Do we need more compassion or more reason to find the inner peace that attracts a higher purpose, for ourselves and for humanity as a whole?… Read more

Diane Hausler | Video Intro
The Big Picture
Big Pic1

The human race has now explored the mysteries of reality as far as we can through the distorted lens of the ego. Whole nations are stuck in the mud, exchanging blows over who’s right and what’s more important -- the power of money or the power of people. (read more)
