Confidential reply to FK:

Dear one:

Please trust me when I tell you that indeed you will come to find that it is a lot easier to play through life in a condition of deep ease- rather than holding down the fort of old worn out beliefs propelled by "shoulds" in a boundary-less landscape. The process of moving from fear to love only seems hard because of the presence of resistance. When you get tired of struggling you'll stop. Isn't that grand news? Sometimes, some of us (like me for sure and possibly you...) have needed to learn "lessons" by putting the head down and running as hard as possible into the local brick wall. Then one day a bit of divine intervention sallies forth from the heavenly realms bringing with it the awareness that the wall technique- while historically offering the illusion of being effective- hurts like a motha. The pain was so familiar it seemed like a totally normal way to live life...but the thought begins to dawn that there are other possibilities. At this point, only your own judgment of what has gone before (and can't be judged into not having existed) can hurt you further.

So what I am saying is resistance is futile-and from your own knowing of your current experience- exhausting--cool huh?

An email correspondence.


I understand you are in the garden of the goddess. That is exciting.
I like your expression. I understand something is going to happen in
2012. I feel it and my geneological family does not believe. If you
do not mind me asking, is there anything we can do to prepare?


and here is my reply.

Casey--I don't believe something unexpected or unusual is going to happen in 2012. Rather, I think of that date as an arbitrary harbinger signaling the advent of a new age of unimagined possibility and grace. On the other hand, the earth is obviously going through a rebalancing or perhaps you might even think of it a cleanse.

To respond to the reprocussions of those changes and their effects on the humanity you will need to:

Learn to stay present in the only moment available to you-NOW.

Live compassion for every earthly participant and experience.

Practice acceptance of all of life.

Commit to developing a moment to moment understanding of where you place your awareness and move it away from fearful respones.

Do whatever it takes to interrupt then break the habit of judgment.

and finally

Come to know your eternal relationship to your godself as deeply as possible.

I apprecate that in these challenging times you might not think I answered your inquiry, but as you master these considerations I have offered to you by finding ways to follow and become a lving example of these suggestions, you will discover that indeed the question no longer exists. gg

Presenting... Maya, The Great Mistress of Illusion!

Ah, my beloved . . . at last. I wondered how long it would take for us to meet again. It was inevitable, of course. If you look back over your life, you can witness the perfectly orchestrated chain of events that delivered this dear blog into your world. On your journey here did you suspect there was something in your life amiss? Perfect. That is exactly the awareness you need to propel your escape from the dream-like enchantment of the Magical Theatre, and rediscover and subsequently live the truth of your magnificence.

You’re probably wondering who I am, and why I want to help you awaken. Permit me please--I am known as Maya, the Great Mistress of Illusion, and it is I who designed this enchanted game of earthly life you’ve been playing. What you have thought of as reality, I call the Magical Theatre, for it is a realm where anything can happen if you open to the possibilities. I imagine you are brimming with questions so let me explain. I invite you to imagine a time in the eons before you began your human journey, each love-filled moment flowing unimpeded into the next, across eternity. From this place you, dear one, courageously chose to participate in the antics of the Magical Theatre, so that you might expand beyond your knowing. You fully understood a spell of forgetfulness would be cast on all who entered this enchanted territory. And, like the multitude of other souls who came to explore the magic, your intent was to star in your own glorious production, without being impeded by earthly fears. You were certain you would remember your essential nature-the key to breaking the spell. But no sooner did you enter your body than you succumbed to the potency of the illusion, forgetting you had delightedly agreed to play the game of awakening. Worse, like millions of others trapped in the same oblivion, you developed a deep conviction of your imperfection. You came to accept that in order to feel complete and experience your divine heritage of unconditional love, you needed to change or do something or pretend to be something you were not.

Dear one, do you honestly believe that you are intrinsically flawed? Be assured that this nonsensical thinking is merely a result of the spell you’re under.  The spell leads you to search in vain for the missing pieces of yourself.  You believe that it is only when you find these missing pieces that will  become impossibly faultless and  you will secure love, approval and happiness.  

And now,  let me give you a clue,  the happiness you long for does not exist outside of yourself, so it cannot be found through relationships, treasures or status. The actual wellspring of happiness has simply faded from your awareness. You have forgotten you are born whole and perfect and irrevocably connected to the heart of the Sacred. Love could not have been missing, for you are its source.

Miracles await you, beloved, if only you remember who you truly are. On my behalf I have asked our beloved Gini to share with you the principles that will release you from the slumber of forgetfulness. If you study the guidelines that are presented and live them with intention, you will become free to reawaken the legacy of your divine spark. In the Magical Theatre you are the producer, director, writer, and star of your own wondrous production. Armed with free will, you can take on whatever role you choose in this bountiful world of wonder.  

Beloved, understand that life in the Magical Theatre exists for your enjoyment, a delight that requires you to first awaken to the mystery of your true nature. I am here to help you navigate the journey, so call on me any time you are in need of support and I will join you in the nighttime dream world. Here, unencumbered by the pull of the enchantment, I will reveal the secret of secrets, how to dream down heaven. In return, I ask only that you open your mind and unlock your heart. 

It is a grand deal, is it not?   So let us begin.... curtain!

Welcome to the Magical Theatre!


Since childhood, I've had a gnawing sense that life on earth is not intended to be as painful or serious as it seems.  In my dreams I would often see life as a grand game of virtual reality,  devised by some greater force for our soul's enhancement.  Yet I had no outer support of this belief,  since I was the least likely person to undertake a journey of awakening-  I was way too cool to be spiritual.  Then, during a fateful 1988 trip to Peru,  I met a woman who would soon introduce me to a then unknown Mexican Toltec teacher:  don Miguel Ruiz. 
Little did I suspect how life-changing that meeting with Miguel would be.  Immediately, he helped me to see that my "too cool"  attitude was one of the many masks that I had adopted to help me navigate through life.  He explained that, like everyone, I had worn masks such as "victim" or "authority" as outward tokens of my identity,  when,  in fact, none of them accurately described who I was. In fact, the essence of myself-the I am- was far greater than any of the ways I was accustomed to defining myself.  As I stripped off the layers of masks,  I felt my heart begin to open and I knew my life would never be the same. 
While I reveled in the wonder of this new understanding, Miguel shared with me the story of Maya,  the world-renowned Hindu Goddess of Illusion,  who had conspired to create a spectacular game of awakening for humans to play on earth.   The capricious and compassionate Maya embodied what I had long believed: that in this enchanted game we call life, our main purpose is to awake to our divine nature.  
I felt an instantaneous surge of connection with Maya. I knew that Miguel was to become my teacher-the spiritual guide who would help me navigate my path here on earth- and Maya would shepherd my exploration of the Great Mystery in the nighttime dream world.  

It was through Maya's unique voice that I was finally able to distill the heart of the process that forms the foundation for my teachings and books.  Maya has remained with me over the years as the voice of "silent knowledge," or universal consciousness, that represents our highest possibility.  Her wisdom forms a powerful foundation for awakening, simultaneously encompassing many different mythologies and transcending boundaries of religion or belief systems.  

As I continue to work with students from many different cultures and walks of life, I realize that Maya's wisdom,  when practiced with heartfelt Joy,  represents the true core of spiritual knowledge.  And when these teachings are seamlessly integrated into a person's life, they guarantee the ability to dream down heaven.

I am deeply honored to pass on this wisdom through my experiences and understandings of the application of the wisdom.  I will reveal a backstage view of Maya's Magical theatre known as life... and Maya may make the occasional guest appearance herself to answer any questions you might submit.   

It is my most sincere wish that her deeply transformative lessons bring as much illumination and delight to you as they have to me.
