Spirit of the Season - Originally posted on Iam Saums:
Source of the Soul - "Intuition is the bridge that connects our creativity with our reality. It is the origin of our transformation. Our soul’s purpose is to intend our vision to become our possibility."
A Being of Power - "Though everything that is not our destiny will arise to challenge our intention, all we encounter further defines and strengthens our commitment. All we become originates and empowers our intent. Our personal power is the manifestation of our purpose."
In the Shadow of Brilliance - "Every option we choose contrary to our destiny takes us further away from who we are meant to be."
Eye of the Storm - "When we find ourselves confronted and overwhelmed by our personal storms, it is the opportunity to transform our experience. It takes those difficult moments to awaken us from the regimen of our waking slumber. Personal empowerment, insight and manifestation occurs when we release our attachments and embrace our possibility."
A Universal Being - "The destiny of our life expression is one best embodied by who we are being in the present."
A Band Beyond Description - "A growing collection of the faithful braved the chilly winds that blew through the city corridors. Several crashing the scene with fingers in the air looking for a miracle."
From Now to Eternity - "Destiny is not a linear path. It is a multi-dimensional experience that ebbs and flows with the energy of our empowerment, intention and purpose."
Signs of Life - "Our lives are much more than we live. We are beings of universal energy simultaneously existing in multiple dimensions."
Universality - "We are eternal beings of energy, ever evolving and expanding as an emanation of creation. We are an infinite soul expressing our essence through our intuition."
Infinite Sea - "We are an expression of multi-dimensional energy both extraordinary and infinite. Our energy can either free or enslave us, others and our environment in ways far exceeding our perception."
The Truth We Are - "Who we are being is the manifestation of our truth. When we are present to who we are being, it transforms our experience. It is our life’s creation. Our awareness determines the relatedness we have with ourselves and others. It is the heart of our existence."
A Source of Energy - "Only our enlightened emotion and intuition can free us from the spell of social reality. Our quest for creativity, healing, fulfillment and purpose begins with us. We must embrace and illuminate the shadows within to transform ourselves."
Kaleidoscope - "Our lives are defined by how we view them. Though we have various senses, our sight greatly impacts our experience. Most of what we become is a culmination of what we perceive.
The Reality of Us - "Perception is the most influential force in society. In a civilization lacking creativity, faith and intuition, the social engineering and manipulation of observation is a business model for the industries we enable. Power is not fame, politics, possession and wealth. It is the ability to alter and control the way society perceives itself."
A Stirring in the Soul - "Each of us has the opportunity to manifest our destiny and express it into the world through how we are being. Our vision is the gateway to who we truly are. It is the embodiment of our soul. The realization of our vision is the emergence of our spirit into our life."

Lakshmi - "All the songs on the “Lakshmi” album where inspired by and created through the practice of Mantra Meditation. Mantra is a style of meditation in the Jain tradition using an ancient word or words that are associated with one of the seven chakras. This practice allowed me to be present to the infinite possibilities of creativity during the composition, development, arrangement, performance, recording and production of the “Lakshmi” album."
The Ass and The Elephant - "Our system of democracy enables the antithesis of all it appears to embody. Reality is a fairy tale that lulls us into acquiescence, futility and oblivion. Our “choice” is a false power enabled by a superficial society."
Cult of Spirituality - "The only true power we have is our consciousness. This extraordinary expression of our being transcends our ego. Where the ego attempts to prove itself and impose its influence, our spirit emanates consciousness to transform our experience."
A True Life - "Who we choose to be in our daily life attracts into it all which we intend. Our intention is the focus that creates the vision of how our experience transpires. Our creativity is the essential energy to manifest our destiny."
Now and Zen: To Whom It May Concern - "Everyone and everything in our lives serves as an all-encompassing mirror. How we respond to these elements of our experience determines how we think, feel, act and are."

This Just In! - "The line of demarcation between truth and fiction in the media has long been blurred beyond recognition. Reality has become a lie and a lie has become our reality."

Human Traits that Are Slowly Killing Us - * Our unchecked anger to which we are not present. * Our judgement and self-righteousness (yes we all have it!) * Our negative reactions to events in our lives and the world. * Our past experiences of which we have not let go. * Not accepting people for who they are and who they aren’t. … Continue reading Human Traits that Are Slowly Killing Us
INeMe - "It is only with consciousness we may discover who the real oppressor is in our lives. It is only then we may realize who we are truly up against. An adversary that is second to none. Someone we will never evade, defeat or escape. We give our power over to our INeME whenever we fail to acknowledge, claim and express it."
Human Being - "It is our destiny in this world not only to choose how we will live, yet as vitally, the degree of a difference we will make, not just in our lives, yet in the lives of everyone in our sphere of influence. Everyone has a difference to make and it is our responsibility as human beings to discover this."
What is Real Beyond What is Real. - "Reality is easy to transcend when we “real”-ize that reality is an illusion and truth is all there is. And the greatest of truth will always be our love. Yet, it requires us to claim and establish our truth and sacrifice the only thing that keeps us imprisoned from ourselves. Reality."
Community - "There is only one way to experience community. It is in the expression of our service to others. Not the service we provide to society for which we are compensated. It is the unconditional service we choose to give for the sake of giving."
The Consciousness Blues - "Breathing is the most powerful way of transforming our fear, worry, outrage, concern, frustration and anger into a proactive and productive form of practice to shift our problems into solutions. As a matter of fact, breathing is the first step in this process. It is fitting that this is the first step of life!"
Romancing the Soul - "Much as the congregational and dependent-laden path of religion, all spiritual paths can become “romanticized,” “shaman”-ized and popularized to attract and enchant the masses. It may seem that emulating or even “echoing” a guru or spiritual teacher’s wisdom makes the difficulty of walking one’s spiritual path easier."
(Don’t) Follow the Leader - "Being a leader is simply being our selves, the fullest expression of our potential. Only you can be the greatest of who you are. Only you can be you, in all your uniqueness and beauty. When we are being the best of who we are, the solutions transform the problems into opportunities so we may thrive in our lives."
Stand - "All of us have experiences that inspire us into enlightenment, action and being. We are all motivated by circumstances and events that define the what, why and how we are empowered. Our commitment to petition for it is the foundation of our expression."
The Heart of it All - "Being conscious in an oblivious society is no longer sufficient to transform the world. Conversations and actions are mere stepping stones in becoming and being all that we envision. Not just as human beings having a spiritual experience or spiritual beings having a human experience, but as energetic beings conveying the extraordinary expressions of our creativity."
Intuition - "It is most difficult to believe in the things we do not see, especially if we cannot understand or relate to them. Since the time we are very young, we are conditioned to believe in only what we see or hear within a narrow perception of reality. All outside of this fine line of life is where the extraordinary thrives."
Entertained to Sleep - "Instead of being entertained by other people, imagine the possibility that our life itself could be fulfilling enough. For if our lives aren’t that entertaining, what does that say about how we are living them?"
Yin Yang - "Solar Beings are at the source of their lives. They are naturally radiant with positive energy, inspiration and intention. Their first inclination is to share, relate with and empower others. They are transcendent yet grounded into their physical life. Solar beings sense and live all possibility."
Authenticity - "Authenticity is the cornerstone of transforming ourselves and ultimately the world. When we commit to living an authentic life, we are devoting ourselves to making a difference. We are the source of our creative expression, benevolence, relatedness and love. This is the truest realization of life."
In the Name of Life - "The more we resist the ultimate truth we one day will pass from this world; the more we give our power over to it. This perception we unwillingly adopt leads to serving a sentence instead of creating a life."
Elemental Medicine - "Our energy and focus is constantly disrupted by a multitude of artificial elements designed to distract us from our souls. When we chose to live a lifestyle as an expression of spirit, it can be revealing, challenging and overwhelming. Yet it is rewarding, illuminating and fulfilling."
An Emanation of Truth - "We each have a vital contribution in the evolution and transcendence of the human race. Our intuitive vision, personal power and creative expression make an extraordinary difference in the way we perceive, interact and exist in society. The composition of our reality is created in the wake of our focus, truth, purpose and love."
Eye of the Beholder - "The only experience that is true in our lives is this moment. Everything else is an illusion. Even the future is a fantasy in relation to the now. Who we are being in the present is the only practice that will transform our life."
Trump This and Bern That! - "The value we believe our vote has is merely a raindrop in an ocean of financial and corporate exploitation. As has been stated before, if our vote really made a difference, the banks and corporations would never grant us this liberty."
Freedom - "Freedom is first found in recognizing we are all slaves in the social system of "reality." Freedom is found when we realize how often we are lying to ourselves when we "think" we are free."
The Fear of Fear - "When the waves of fear rise and impact us, we have a choice. We can "believe" that our "fear" is real and accept it as an unfortunate element of our human experience. Or we can choose to see it for what it really is, an empty, misguided perception and an unconscious expression of our lives."
From Assimilation to Transformation…In a Single Breath - Transformation is the most magnificent experience we may have. It is a gateway that reunites us with our possibility. It draws us out of our mind and body and connects us with our heart and soul. Transformation reminds us who we truly are."
A Universal Instrument of Energy - "We are an instrument for the universe. The nature of instrument we will be is dependent upon the expression of our energetic birthright. We have the potential to conduct the energetic currents that flow into this world. We have the choice to be in flow with the universal energy and the collective stream of consciousness."
We Are All Related - "When we are connected with our soul, we are able to see the invisible barriers and boundaries within ourselves which keep us from becoming who we are meant to be. We attract into our lives people whom are reflections for us to witness what it is about ourselves we are missing when we are unable or unwilling to see it within ourselves."
The Light in the Darkness - "We are incapable of sustaining a capacity of being-ness for enlightenment. Our lives are lived ever striving to become something that we can only be in spirit. Perhaps this is the great mystery of life."
Guise of Divinity - "The focus of our devotion toward our selected deity grows as our investment in our lives and in ourselves wanes. We are diverted from our souls and into the arms of a social myth endorsed as “God.”
Who We Are - "The center of our inner universe is our heart. It is the eternal, electromagnetic core of our being, the gateway to our soul and the lightning rod of our intuition."
Fool’s Gold - "For hundreds or thousands of dollars one could become a shaman and almost instantly open a practice and facilitate ceremonies to heal and teach others to become one as well. Eventually, common spiritualists came out in droves to answer this inauthentic, materialistic calling of the “new age.”
A Vision of Truth - "The tapestry of personal filters we have adopted has blinded us to the mere possibility of living our truth. The fact that living a true life is optional in the wake of reality is the reason there is such a lack of it in our own or in society."
Versus - "Our experience upon this earth has and is massively manipulated. It pits us against our fellow human being in a commonly accepted and dysfunctional community called “society."
Music in the Key of Soul - "Music is not something that we write and perform. It is quite the contrary. It is a stream of consciousness that moves through us when we have reached an enlightened expression of being. All artists stand at the mouth of this current, yet we are not its source."
The Usual Suspects - "Spiritual Leaders are only as genuine as their commitment, loyalty, humility and authenticity. Their willingness and intention to evolve and transform in the service of their community and the world ought to transcend any notion of personal benefit they may achieve."
The Frequency of Being - "Our truth is the one thing our communities and the world needs most. Only when it becomes our way of being will it reach its fullest potential.
Being Present in the Present - "When we are in and aware of the present to the best of our ability, we live everything as we were intended. What once appeared to be linear in dimension, perception and experience transforms. We become aware of the multi-faceted existence of being."
Awaken - "Every day is an opportunity for us to choose to live a conscious life. The more we create this possibility, the more we establish this reality, the more human beings will contribute to the communal awareness."
The Greatest Illusion - "When we present ourselves as being “spiritual,” we aren’t “being” spiritual, but more often disingenuous, eccentric and superior. When we believe we are enlightened is usually when we are furthest from it."
The Lie We Live - "The stigmatism of fear that has shrouded the existence of truth in this world has sustained the illusions of war, greed, violence, murder and environmental holocaust. This is the cost of our compliance to the lie of life."
Fairy Tale - "They found their true power in the expression of their acceptance, amity, compassion, creativity, kindness and transformation. The clan’s individual wants were exchanged with a common need only one way of being could fulfill, unity."
Between the Lines - "Only when we read between the lines of reality will our truth be found. Only then will we be able to create the truth we are destined to be."
Ghost Story - “All that is left unseen and untended shall forever be that which enslaves us with our very own fear.”
