“It’s the simple things”

By James Anthony Curtis

We might have fantastic dreams, feel inspired by those that have walked the path before us, and desire to manifest magnificent abundance in our lives, but if we pay close attention, listening to our hearts, we will find all of this and much more are already here.

We all have those moments when the child eternal comes out to play; noticing the butterfly’s gathering in some unified fashion of chaotic harmony, big puffy clouds laying lazily in the sunshine, the water flowing along the rivers edge, gently swirling as it goes by. When we allow our presence to be immersed in our experiences, even in difficult times, our heart whispers an inaudible tone of “perfection” as contentment washes over our soul.

The divinity that we are wants to come forth, and in our busy lives calls to us however it can, touching every reflection of awareness, awakening us when as we are ready for fulfillment overflowing.

As we open ourselves to all that we are feeling, acknowledging the most minute of our truths, we sense further in connection with ourselves, receiving the abundance life has to offer.

By giving ourselves the gift of abiding in however we may feel, we are granting love energetically to those parts that are coming forward to be loved.

Not only are we washing over ourselves by embracing burdensome feelings, but those very feelings are the parts coming forth asking for the love needed to manifest all that we desire.

May we love, as we have never loved before, welcoming the little things into our heart for our wellbeing.

May see with a child’s eye, all that life has provided, in our reflections that come to open once closed doors.

May we play as children of divinity, come to acknowledge and express for the sake of love all that we hold dear, that the one we are may come forth, in benefit to all beings.

May it be so, so it is.

“Allowing honesty”

“Allowing honesty”

By James Anthony Curtis

Sometimes we’re afraid of what will happen if we are honest, like it might let the genie out of the bottle to sit with the truth we feel. So we go on long journeys, excursions often necessary to allow ourselves time to receive deeply painful, often uncomfortable feelings, the kind that the storm of late night, or very early morn arouses within us.

We awaken to rolling thunder, light flashing in the darkness, as we ponder once walked roads come to visit us in the night scape of dreams.

People we have known, unresolved heart matters, emotional debris surfacing for our viewing in fanciful firing, as our mind constructs a reality for us to feel in.

So we feel, viewing our unrestrained choices in dreamland, those parts asking for our acknowledgement, truth, to be revealed, that maybe consciously we could not, or refuse to embrace.

The ache of our pains seeps into our bowls, we wince at the work of feeling, what it means, and what we will do with the information we’ve been graced with.

Thunder rolls upon the sky over us, shaking our body with a warm sense of relief, even though we recoil in awakening.

We decide to move from the bed, the soft touch of our pillow, getting up to abide with our vision, the storm, feeling into the mystery of our subconscious conjuring.

Quietly we welcome each breath into our bowels, receiving bit by bit hard truths that our life path is revealing.

Loneliness, ache, longing, and despair, silently, slowly, glide across the floor, dark shades walking to sit with our imagination, as we feel deeper into our space.

Holding the heart tenderly, we remind it, “I will not abandon you, nor reject, even though I may feel abandonment, rejection, and unworthiness, in the dark recesses of my mind, body and soul.”

We sit with these parts because they have come forward to be felt, loved, as no one else can.

We grant passage for the pain, as pain is the highest indication that we are healing, that what we feel in our emotional debris of truth, is lighting our path to freedom.

May the storm awaken us, giving us all that we desire, blessing us with the thunder of its healing.

May we feel necessary aches, realizing we have chosen certain life paths, for the benefit of our deep growth, transformation and healing.

May we come to know the one coming forth, the one we have been waiting for, as we acknowledge our truth with love, for the benefit of all beings.

May it be so, so it is.

“Some of our best prayers are those we acknowledge”

“Some of our best prayers are those we acknowledge”

By James Anthony Curtis

Everything has a frequency, and when touched, plucked, dropped or otherwise, will vibrate. Whether we realize it or not, we are frequently sending out a vibration to the universe, full of requests, expressions and gratitude for being.

Even in our darkest hours, when we might feel deeply depressed, or anxiously on edge, not only are these times indications of answered prayers, healing and relief coming, they are also continuing requests that are sent for our well being to manifest as we embrace our wholeness.

How then do we know our truths, what we are asking for?

If outer circumstances are a reflection of our most precious dreams attempting to bring us into the reality we have contracted, as we sit with our feelings, abiding in those layers under the surface of what we see three dimensionally, we become aware of deeper requests.

Much like hindsight, when we look back and see the universe working in our life, finding the good in what was once might have been perceived as a negative, we can begin to feel into every situation with love, observing and acknowledging our prayers as we become aware of them.

This is a powerful practice in self-realization, as we are opening doors to fully engaging our responsibility for the life we live.

No longer are we “victims of circumstance,” but rather we are empowered by the desires we begin to see we have come to fulfill.

Our life becomes a walking meditation, as we come to know ourselves, receiving all the love we have desired, and not only do we become aware of our requests, but we see the potential of what we have come to heal and express.

May we acknowledge our prayers when ready, arising to walk the inward road, that our guides may reveal themselves to us.

May we receive all that we have desired under the surface, going deeper into our circumstances, feeling all that we are feeling, for our well being to come forth.

May we love, as we have never loved before, granting passage for our truths to be heard by us, that the one we have been waiting for may be revealed, the one we already are, for the benefit of all beings.

May it be so, so it is.

“You showed up”

“You showed up”

By James Anthony Curtis

One of my favorite new practices I learned from a lovely family we camped with recently on the road is, whenever one of the family would “put themselves out there,” meaning, share some insight, wisdom, or how they felt, no matter the outcome, a comment was made “you showed up.”

It’s taken me many, many years to be ok with me, to learn no matter the outcome, the important thing is to “show up.”

On this day I celebrate “showing up.” Being with the one coming forth in all of us, no matter the outcome, here, now, I’m so grateful to share this time with all of you.

This is our time, the space we occupy has been “purposed” specifically for us, to embrace all that we feel in our unique form of humanity, as we express the love we are as no one else can.

With each breath, our beating heart transmits a vibrational signature distinctly offering to the universe our gifts we have come to reveal, those parts eagerly incarnated for our truth to shine.

Our light of passion that must be set upon on hill, as no other way will bring our fulfillment to fruition.

As we come to know the one we have been waiting for, meeting each desire with the loving attention we have asked in each experience, our divine nature expands with our truths as we acknowledge them. We are set free, as our body and reflections effortlessly bring forth all information for our spiritual evolution to occur.

Our unfolding is completely perfect as we come to recognize the healing in our journey.

Today may we be blessed as we “show up,” embracing each character as a well spring for our coming forth.

May we love deeply, passionately, as the fire that we are is revealing our truths we have come to express.

May all beings everywhere know themselves, as the one we already are, in benefit of wellbeing.

May it be so, so it is.

“Beyond the floodgates of fascination”

“Beyond the floodgates of fascination”

By James Anthony Curtis

It’s been almost a full year since I decided to share these writings, giving space for help to those in deep transformation on the path of healing.

When at first I began to emerge from my cocoon of ego and self preservation, the pain of loss that had occurred in that process was almost unbearable, leaving me with utter devastation, in a deep bewilderment.

It seems appropriate that the seasons aligned, and the most excruciating pain brought forth exactly what was needed as intended, birthing my unfolding wings for the uncertain ground that I was to stand on.

The universe knows, and will always provide, even in seeming aloneness, darkness, the depths of our needs, calling out from the abyss in our falling.

Sometimes it feels sickening, that spinning, undeciphered form of our reality, beckoning us from long lost hopes of fulfillment; but in those moments of acknowledgement, where we brave the darkness, allowing ourselves to explore our desires, the depths of love that we give our met in measure, as we feel deeply into our wanting.

“Impossibilities” open in the cracking of our souls, and from death a new life emerges, one full of potentiality and grace.

So as we look forward in amazement, we might be tempted to doubt the truths we have embraced, even attempting to ground in the old carnage of death from whence we emerged; but now is the time of our being, although we may feel fear and hesitation, boldly we step forth into the unknown, trusting the wings that are unfolding.

We step “beyond the floodgates of our fascination,” claiming flight in our wings, going deeper than we have ever been, in all confidence of our upholding.

May we trust in the universe, that all is well in our arrangement, everything has been fully aligned for our being here, now, in this moment of love.

May we see when we are ready, the many gifts that have been bestowed for our journey, as we hold the heart through all that we feel.

May we acknowledge the one coming forth, granting passage for our healing, that all we have desired may be fulfilled, as the love we already are, in benefit to all beings.

May it be so, so it is.

“Hatchback Jesus”

“Hatchback Jesus”

By James Anthony Curtis

Two neighbors were talking one day about their friend’s lifestyle who lived on the road:

“You mean she just lives on the road, going from place to place, not really knowing her destination or ever really where she will end up?!?”

“Yes! Isn’t it ridiculous! How can one possibly float along, with no path or destination under the feet, being some so called ‘ambassador of love’ to everyone she meets?!?”

“What does that mean? ‘Ambassador of love?!?'”

“That’s her practice now. She claims she has ‘found Jesus’ or something, and wants to travel, living on the road as some sort of healer.”

“So does she actually heal others?!”

“Sort of. She claims she is love, and love does the healing.”

“How does that work?!? I mean someone somewhere has got to be a little suspect with seeing a healing or two! I mean a modern day messiah walking around healing others!!”

“It’s not that obvious. In fact, she says she’s the one being healed. That all the ‘others’ are really beautiful reflections of her life, and as she heals, everyone around her does also.”

“So she’s no self proclaimed messiah!? Well, at least there’s that. We don’t need anymore of those.”

“On the contrary, she says we are all messiahs. We just haven’t realized it yet, and that as we do, heaven, nirvana, or something like that will appear before our very eyes right here on earth.”

“That’s the most silly thing I’ve ever heard of! Now I’m a messiah! As if I didn’t have enough to worry about, I’m going to end up handing out goodwill on earth!”

“Well, that doesn’t sound to bad does it? I mean all things considered, who couldn’t use a bit more love?”

“Your starting to sound like her! What’s gotten into you!”

“I guess I have been hanging around her some. She’s even feeding people now, right out of her little hatchback. They just show up wherever she stops, almost like they know she’s there for them.”

“Oh. My. God. A ‘hatchback Jesus! As if I haven’t heard it all! With all the problems in the world, this woman thinks she’s some sort of ‘love is the answer’ Lennon serving others for world peace person!!!”

“Hey, I’m heading down the road, I understand your frustration, fear, frankly I was too about this, but not so much now. This really helped, our sharing, thanks.”

“What do you mean this helped?!?”

“I guess I just needed to feel what I felt, sit with all the things this morning provoked in me when I thought about her.”

“And now?”

“I feel okay. Like I have purpose or something.”

“So what now?”

“I’m not sure, but I hope you have a great day, love you neighbor!”

“Being where we are”

“Being where we are”

By James Anthony Curtis 

It might start as a location, maybe that job you don’t like, or a relationship that’s difficult, or an ache in our body that just seems to remind us of our earthen vessel, but in every step, all that arises beckons us to be here, in this moment, with all that we feel.

At first, this can be a somewhat scary proposal to the mind, as the mind will begin constructing future events, relationships, outcomes based on our feelings. The instability with the our thoughts though at this juncture, is we have not allowed what has arisen in our feelings to fully engage us, running its course in us for our wellbeing to emerge as it wills as we love the heart through all that we feel.

In conjunction with mindfulness, the feelings are wonderful “sensory” appendages (when not overwhelming the nervous system), as in they connect us to the inner and outer verse of our truth, where we stand, and with all that we desire in our experience.

As we practice “being where we are” in the present, we come to know those parts that are coming forth to be acknowledged in our truth. The more love we allow in holding space for what we feel in our truths, the deeper we will go into the layers of what arises in feeling.

We begin to go “beneath the surface” of smells, what we see, hear, and so on, into the agitation, fear, joy, or contentment of what our feelings share with us.

Abiding with love, we go deeper yet, as our heart opens new dimensions to what we are allowing ourselves to feel, and we discover sight beyond “seeing,” as we give the attention to often dark places, that once we purposely turned away from, because of the overwhelming nature of what we felt.

Love opens doors, and allows us to feel difficult feelings, as the heart becomes our guide with innocence holding it tenderly.

May we give ourselves the gift of “being where we are,” as we come to know those places that have come forth to be revealed.

May we see beyond our thoughts, as we feel, breathing deeply into our heart with love, all that arises for our attention, love and care.

May we come to know the love we have been waiting for, the one who is emerging, the love we already are, as we gently gift ourselves this moment, in all that we feel, for the benefit of all beings.

May it be so, so it is.

“Seeking”

“Seeking”

By James Anthonh Curtis

✨✨✨
“What am I seeking?”
✨✨✨
Whisper replied, “that which in you feels uncared for, alone, and wanting.”
✨✨✨
“And where will I find it” asked the seeker?
✨✨✨
“There is no ‘it.’ ‘It’ is a conjecture of the mind, formed by obsessive thinking, manifested in the flesh as compulsive feeling, and will never be fulfilled in reality as peace”
✨✨✨
The seeker then became very confused and said, “But if there is no ‘it,’ what then drives me forward to find some nonexistent thing? Is this life but an illusion in turmoil, where I will find no peace?”
✨✨✨
“What you seek is in the seeking,” said whisper. “The fire within you that burns to be loved, held in your arms, is creating the seeking as illusion, or ‘other.’ As you begin to acknowledge this part within you, all will be revealed in your true nature, the love that you desire.”
✨✨✨
“How will I acknowledge, or know that which is in me, when there is such great need coming forth in my seeking, manifesting as outward desire?”
✨✨✨
Whisper replied, “when you feel, go into the depths, underneath the surface of your longings, pain and outward desires.”
✨✨✨
But with so much deception, so many illusions, how can I understand the events that unfold before me, those experiences, people and relationships of so many that have touched my soul on this journey?”
✨✨✨
Whisper replied, “See past the illusions by embracing present truths, abide with the feelings in them, allowing their deeper needs to reveal themselves.”
✨✨✨
“In those deeper needs I am feeling connection, those parts coming forward to be loved within me, are being reflected outwardly,” said seeker.
✨✨✨
“Yes.”
✨✨✨
“So much of what I have been seeking, is within me” said seeker?
✨✨✨
“Yes.”
✨✨✨
“And you” said seeker?
✨✨✨
“I AM you” said whisper.
✨✨✨
And We smiled. ☺

“Acknowledge the fire”

“Acknowledge the fire”

By James Anthony Curtis

If it burns within us, there is some truth we must embrace in order for that part to be loved.

Passion proceeds at the behest of the heart, and those fires we might sometimes deem as destroyers, are only burning as they do because of our hearts desire.

We attract the vibration in others as we emit our own, those frequencies the heart calls to us are but the ones walking through the halls in the inner chambers of our bliss.

How they manifest is for our attention, or confirmation as we interact with the world around us.

Depending on our cocoon, as we build our layers, going through life, and when ready for our inward journey, we simply allow ourselves the space necessary for our darkness to be complete.

As we come to a close, the mind exhausted, we will feel the warmth of our fires coming forward for our shift, moving each precious hope, manifesting in conjunction with universe for our metamorphoses to take place.

This is the time of our undoing, and reconstruction, of acknowledgment to that which burns within us.

What might appear as sinners and saints, are only those judgements we may form as we begin to fall into our infinite being, looking for ground to grasp the depths we are experiencing.

So we embrace all that we feel, setting aside opinions and judgements, fully immersing ourselves as we hold the heart in our darkness, holding space for the truths that arise.

May we love, as we have never loved before, all that comes forth, granting ourselves the healing we have long desired.

May we give ourselves deep breaths, granting passage for strong energies in earthen vessels, as we place the hand upon the heart for our hearing.

May we bless, those places that curse us, knowing they are only coming forth for our benefit, as we love the one we have been waiting for, the one we already are, for the benefit of all beings.

May it be so, so it is.

“Abundant healing”

“Abundant healing”

By James Anthony Curtis

It may come as cold, seeking its way into our marrow, shaking us at the very foundation of our core, yet this is the very necessary source of our prolonged journey, the reason for our pilgrimage through such perilous waters.

If it were always smooth sailing, sunny skies, and rainbows unending, we would never see past our illusions, those places that scare us, or go deeper in our roots.

We live in a culture that resides in comfortability, and though it may seem there is great need for change, it is the perfect ground for our cocoons to manifest, and our metamorphosis to take place.

Every aspect that challenges us, drives our lives to form layers of protection, which will help in our inward journey of healing as we shift form safely in darkness.

The pain we will feel is only an indication of our realized self coming forth as a new creation, and allows us the tiny opening to fill our wings for the great shift in perspective that is taking place.

We begin to see there was no other way for us to manifest here on earth, but in earthen vessels, that our form was not a mistake, and our spiritual evolution is perfect.

As we feel, we begin to set down the judgements and opinions about our feelings, simply allowing ourselves to breath deeply into the heart, all that we feel, while tenderly holding our heart, saying, “I will not abandon you, I will not reject you, but will tenderly hold you with love in all that I am feeling.”

We realize the truth in this practice, the power that love has over all circumstances, and dimensions.

As we live in love, the fruit of love will come, even though our darkness may reside for some time as apart of our process.

Abundant healing comes as we embrace ourselves, loving our heart in all that surfaces for us to feel, and we awaken to the one we have been waiting for, forever held by the one we already are, for the benefit of all beings.

May it be so, so it is.
