Waking up. Waking Bliss.
Still behind the veil but stepping through.
To see you in me + me in you.
You don't know me yet. But you will . . .
Embrace the energy that is you. Use it to cultivate + create. Rise within yourself & you will uplift others with your simple act of presence. Say less so you may hear more. Do less so you may be more (but remain aware of when to act). Emanate your purest heart without expectation of response or reaction. Enslave your ego.
“You are awareness itself and not all these thoughts.” – Yogi Bhajan
Our only responsibility in this life is to hear the sound of our heart & heed its call. That’s it. All the mystics, all the secret-sayers across all of time, truly this is all they have to say. Create the time in the quietest part of your day to be still & listen and you will hear. You will have a gentle urging where to go.
But the map is not the road. To understand is not to Know. You have to dig in + do it. Experience is the element that elevates an idea or insight into a full-blown, running-naked-through-the-streets, earth-shattering epiphany.
Everything changes when you Know.
But who am I to say this? Why am I even here?
I am here to help + heal + hold, to guide others toward the Truth of their own Knowing. I am uplift personified. I am Daniel interpreting the waking dream of the world. I am shifting consciousness through evocative communication. I am a sacred instrument in tune with earth + the cosmos. I sing the soul strings’ crescendo. I am purpose fulfilled + renewed. And I am cycling into dawn on a new phase of Life.
Happy + new this year,

I’m still a kid, you see, but I’d almost forgotten. I’d moved away from this playful core of innocence & wonder in a years-long game of make believe that I was something other, something to fulfill the fantasy implanted by the static hiss of frozen culture, something I thought I was supposed to be to impress the idle chit-chat of passing acquaintances.
Then one day while at play the question came to me: Why work your entire life around a passing moment of external acceptance? You must live in the company of yourself always. This unique essence that flows through you is the one to build your life around.
There is untold power in the simple act of expressing who you are on the deepest, purest level & allowing others to not only be illuminated by this but inspired to uncover their own light & let it shine.
But how do you know what you are meant to be? Well, what did you ♥love♥ to do as a kid?
There is something specific that invigorates you and enlivens all of your senses. You know this feeling well. It's when the whole world is simultaneously eclipsed & integrated into your act of being in rapturous harmony with the moment. Things just flow. It is the place where we find the most support & the most solace. When you're there, it's almost too easy to just be. Just being what you are meant to be, wholly & completely given over to the power thriving & pulsing in you, is the supreme devotion and the most sincere worship of your Truth.
But life can be a bit like a church with a playground
inside. We’re compelled to be stoic in this hallowed place to the point we
nearly forget the swings are there to swing upon, not just sit still. The slide
is there to be slid down & climbed again. It’s OK (and in fact intended) to be merry as we go ‘round.
We can rejoice in play. We can find a sacred place to swing & slide & go merrily 'round.
Right now, I’m finding this sacred space to play by finding messages in magazines & old books, hidden amidst the everyday ads & articles, then extracting those puzzle pieces with scissors & blades. This way I can sift through & intuitively organize the message meant to be.
This whole process is symbolic of my life right now. I am picking through the elements of me constructed over a lifetime to find the most meaningful bits so I can focus on & rearrange them into something stunningly poignant & seemingly new. Yet they were there all along.
So I have decided to play and jump and yell. I have decided that kid in me still needs playtime and naps and to be excited by his creations. And I have decided to give that kid what he needs.
You can decide some things, too. What would you decide to do?
We were wild with joy because tomorrow
We would leave the known world behind.
What a wonderful feeling . . .
To be able to decide your own life and destiny
Obeying without limitations your own mysterious call,
And dreams and passions.
- Douchan Gersi
Would you leave the known world behind and perhaps remember when you were once excited by the simplest things?
