Heart of a Rose



Timeless Moments at the Temple Door

Daily I wish to recall a moment;
when I sat at the door of sacred space
were wild roses sway; worshiping the sun.
They were born for this choice-less awareness.
I wished & prayed that I might freely choose
to by like a rose in every timeless moment.
I hold it still as timeless surrender to remember.

Surely many pages I’ve written to myself; hoping to clarify what seems most important, as we journey. Seeking till there is just one thing I feel then try to test as most meaningful and true to me. Perhaps I can convey it’s essence telling a brief story; The most essential story of my life. My lucky guidance. Lucky because I’m a simple boy subtly driven, aspiring to understand life in this world.

If I may briefly share a few blessings I notice.
Have you noticed time is always fleeting?
But this moment now; always, potentially full, of loving presence.

One day, alone, I came to recognize,
Life’s journey is not so much about getting somewhere;
it’s more about being fully in the present just where we are;
May I say in the infinite timeless moment of now.
Such, must be the way of being, to “be here now”.
Why, because there must be an infinite fullness of the timeless now.
In timeless moments we are at the temple door; prepared to enter. Let me explain the recognition which brought me to the door.
It became clear to me simply by paying attention.

See, in and after my college years that is, first after learning
& discovering what I didn’t want to do;
I developed a tendency to solo “bushwhack” the Rocky mnts. of Colorado.
By that, I mean I use to hike alone often off the trail;
so mainly on animal trails over passes and peaks,
which offered great time and space for observation and reflection.
Long prior to such solo trips I often hiked with friends;
some seeming to be in a hurry, to get somewhere; I guess to the top.
I’d think to myself; that’s hours from now. Look how beautiful it is here!
I’ll reach the top by & by. To “Be Here Now”, is my destination, so let it be!

My solo journey’s thus became very sacred to me.
Feeling blessed to be in God’s county, I would explore;
trying to be calmly present every step.
I’d think to myself” I’m on a journey of being, present each step,
Going to discover the temple door, that I might enter.
One day I was there by the temple door.
I hiked to a high intermediate ridge above timberline,
surrounded by views in every direction.
I had to stop and view the scenery, and hear the wind from peak and valley.
It’s so vast, yet quiet at the hearts door of natures temple.
So I sat awhile;
after some time I thought to look around for signs of trails and such,
but felt too I shouldn’t rush, so I looked more closely,
noticing wild roses before me dancing lightly in the breeze.
I looked too, to see there, the sun light of god;
in the sky maintaining all in it’s solar system;
and I saw the communion there of sun sky and roses.
So easily I might have missed this sacred moment.
The rose might soon be gone as life goes on.
I had to recognize the sacred timeless nature of this temporal moment.

No One was grieving, all were worshiping the sacred moment
in great quiet, love and peace.
I wondered are the roses worshiping the sun,
or is the sun there tending to the roses?
But now there was only an eternal timeless moment
in that passing perfect life and love
All was as it’s meant to be at peace in the now. An eternal sacred now.
You might look this way as you journey in the stillness of your eternal timeless & divine moments; only one is everlasting, two ever passing

Some Things I Wonder

Here are Some Things I Wonder
In essence, Wonder seems to be at the heart of all that is. Wonder fills the universe, for it is the universe. In mind, thought; time & space there is no end to Wonder. Beyond thought, to being, there is only the infinite fullness of now, each timeless moment. That being so, wonder permeates all time and space, though we don’t always recognize it, being distracted by our believe that we know something more; such as the essence of life and death.
Life is the fullness of every moment, death is our blindness to wonder. Life and death in any moment. Life is what brings us to fullness, death is what drives us apart, in our separateness. When we fail to connect; whether purposely or not, we join the walking dead; squandering the essence of life and love..
If you don’t believe this, then tell me; why do we fail to live and work together in a deeply personal way, truly knowing, trusting each other? Knowing must come to the point of trusting. So why do we commodify our relationships? Like property. What are we worth? More or less. Then who can we depend upon? We are diseased by doubt.
Doubt is not Wonder. In doubt we go to hell. In wonder we live in Love. My point being we live blind, though we yearn to see. We ache and we cry for love but we do not love, we negotiate. When we can not trust we contract. So we remain alone, separate. Like cattle in a herd, waiting for slaughter but scheming against the inevitable.
Forgive me, I must offer a solution to such a hellish curse! Then I beg of you now; Let us live in love every timeless moment. That means now! Let that be our motive to be grounded in hearts full of love; making that promise & agreement with every other; seeking and offering trust. Living each moment in the wonder of love, for self & every other. If you want to live more truly now, live in wonder, wonder that awakes as knowing. Knowing the fulness of every eternal moment. And somehow, share that knowing if you may love; awakening in the fullness of timeless loving wonder.

Awaken Now your own "Rosemont Way"

The PAth

Explore  Inner Paths of Timeless Wisdom

Awaken to the Ever New within & around us

Inspired by all who are “Travelers on a Spiritual Journey” I feel obliged to offer here, as best I can, two basic, I dare say essential points; able to enliven and inform our Universal Sacred Paths of Awakening. Not paths to awakening, but “Paths of Awakening” ever expanding wakeful awareness  informing every moment. With this aim in mind may I suggest that what I’ve come to call “A Rosemont Way”; includes any way which points toward “Our Essential Universal Awakening”; meaning that which is the very heart of every awakening tradition. A path first and foremost intended to evoke direct experience, in the lives of psychologically mature individuals who are self-enabled to embrace and embody a progressive vision of True Universal Fellowship; the ideal of every seer, saint, prophet, master, guru tulku or avatar. I dare say a tainted religious view would to one that mainly seeks to appear greater, by making others seem lesser; exploiting difference rather than nurturing agreements.

Though founded on Ageless Wisdom, A Rosemont Way may be somewhat unique in that a seeker, explorer may feel neither encouraged; nor discouraged from; embracing a particular style or school of spiritual belief. One might say New Age suggesting a universal theosophy without a burden of history, but ever new, transformative. So A Rosemont Way is meant to suggest and embody the awakened process revealing universal realities at the heart of the “ever present, eternal timeless moment”. Not like a process of critical analysis alone, but a creative, experiential awakening to universal wholeness. An ideal; focused not on problems and differences, but rather encouraging focus on a way of seeing, which opens the door to liberating reconciliation of body/mind, soul & spirit. A worthy goal of all true spiritual seekers & traditions. A Rosemont Way would quite naturally recognize real mystics and spiritual adepts as the only true authorities with regard to all things spiritual. Letting their lives and teaching guide the way to “A Heart Sanctuary for a New Aeon”. An ever new, timeless awakening .

And then Awakening, beyond belief; to embrace the intuitive wisdom of pure hearts, you may find “Integral Living” Is a Universal Way We can Journey Together. So One may come to a place, where we have no choice, but to promote cherished ideals held supreme; living each day with heart filled Universal Fellowship.

Our journey is coming home,
Our way awakening.
fulfilled in sharing.

Let’s make it clear A Rosemont Way in not a new idea; it’s basis is ageless wisdom. It’s cloak is a healing oneness; not a judgmental separation.
Ageless Wisdom refers to that which is true without beginning or end.
As neophytes we may struggle putting the horse before the cart; being unclear what comes first. Surely our way must be known, or the journey’s end may be lost.

Why do some religions try; out of the goodness of their hearts, to sell their way as the only way? Awake we feel this needs to be clear; A Universal Way means that each individual journey is unique & valid for the soul’s evolution. We each have our way. Each one stands in its own place in time & space; each & every life is for an individual’s striving to awaken fully to the one unifying wholeness.

Sure there are helpful maps & guides for all we do, but in the end our divine nature blossoms from deep within our own soulful experience; grounded in our very own universal nature; awakening in us as though it arises anew. The guiding principles of all religion come from universal ageless truths; In darkness of the mind it gets twisted by greed, conflict, guilt & oppression.

This only seems the great quandary of existence; how to recognize an omnipresent unity in apparently endless diversity? In seeing beautiful diversity in harmony we may attain peace & understanding. So our Journey is to demonstrate reconciliation, in universal peace; the way we must be each moment is ever wakeful to the truth of oneness, which can enable & glorify our success in ennobled universal fellowship with every act & intention.

The way to One I call “A Rosemont Way”& ageless wisdom is the horse
The journey “A Rosemont Journey” ~ that is the path
And the Cart is “A Rosemont Fellowship” which enables our aspirations
And the Goal, our home, is “A Rosemont Heart Sanctuary” ~
A Temple of Universal Fellowship ~ embracing no opposition.

Embracing Oneness it simply becomes clear.

Our Rosemont Journeywild rose
Of Bright Awakening

If the Universal purpose of one’s life is to seek fulfillment
Then one must ask, “What is the prize?”
Is our goal to obtain a deep palpable understanding
of our truth and purpose?
Is our desire to be awake to our divine essence,
born of Love and Wisdom?

By whatever motivation, in pursuit of life’s purpose,
A true seeker is engaged in “a Journey of Awakening”.

The Awakened One’s are all Revivalists,
Encouraging sincere seekers, their chelas,
To explore the Universal Path of Ageless Wisdom.
Yet the Awakened One’s create no religion.
Living Truth, they are ever awake to one divine eternal presence.

Here is the path of Ageless Wisdom;
In this moment Awaken Thee!
Breath, feel and see the Universal Presence
of eternal, hallowed, ineffable,
peace and joy.
Understand its true nature, Awakens Thee.
Now, Awaken Me.
This is a Universal Illumined Path of Ageless Wisdom.
Embracing this Path, I am all, for thee!

“A Rosemont Reunion ~ A Universal Fellowship Community Network”

On an Explorers Journey Awakening there comes a time when perhaps vast seas, mountains or plains may stand before us.Then what can one do all alone? Humankind’s survival has always depended upon fellowship, family or community. Our survival and advancement is always greatly aided when sharing common aims and means. Even today we may find progressive companies who recognize the mutual benefits of serving the well being of customers, clients and employees alike. There are certainly no rational barriers to the creation of progressive supportive collaborative intentional universalist communities; rather there are so many, both tangible and intangible supportive reasons, to favor such incorporation. The first justification being a greater direct influence and control over one’s quality of life; one living and working environment; which should offer the ability to establish a holistic lifestyle; which one more directly establishes, influences and controls. 2ndly is the transformation of one’s relationships from those which are quite impersonal to closer personal relationships with shared interests values and experiences. These transformations offer a more connected fulfilling life shared with more like minded associates along with great social influence and security. Think of having your needs provided for almost exclusively by individuals known to you on a first name basis.

While even a small group of collaborators can achieve impressive results, like a small company. In order to better achieve assure & secure such invaluable lifestyle transformations a certain order of magnitude would be required. So while there may be some optimum orders of magnitude which can be recognized as a sweet spot; this spot might vary considerably depending on the objectives of all participants. One idea perhaps worth considering, in order to maximize results and their success, might be to create a  network of various intentional communities perhaps international, by which members could take time to explore different environments.

Community to me means something very tangible and comprehensive, like a seed planted in fertile ground properly tended naturally flowering and bearing fruit; shallow to describe, but sweet to smell & taste. It is the true brave heart that both seeks and encourages sharing; hopes, dreams and aspirations in this regard; and so establishes a love of service to all true hearts most dear. Such hopes and dreams here hinted at with intentions to collaborate in manifesting such a network, path, plan in order to embody the direct experience of our shared & wholly divine presence .

May we all encourage & seek support for fellowship activities leading to community; by way of~

  • 1-Networking
  • 2-Dialog,
  • 3-Meetings,
  • 4-leading to workshops,
  • 5-planning groups,
  • 6-resources,
  • 7-community building,
  • 8-organizational development

These are some of the ways we can begin manifesting in our lives the divine nature of “A Universal Way, Awakening”. Such activities can lead to the creation of a well-rounded, diverse, inspired community of truth seekers, creating opportunities for each other to express each ones very own inner truth and beauty.

So “2 related Ideals”

      1. Transforming our state of awareness, our world view, our “Self” image
      2. Establishing Fellowship and Community as a vessel, for our shared “Self Realization” and well being.

I hope you will embrace ways which enable your life to nurture the embodiment of your highest ideals

Namaste’ with love, light & fellowship in the One & All.

An Invitation to Embody & Share A Truly Holistic Way of Life

Edited for my About. Friends

Do You Strive to Embody & Share A Truly Holistic Way of Life?

Have you ever considered what’s needed to establish and nurture the deepest sorts of constructive, progressive working relations? Naturally such would be built upon a foundation of highly dependable and constructive agreements, with long term, common cause, shared by colleagues like friends and family. How can such agreements & relationships arise? From trust built in facing shared struggles and successes, addressing life’s most important issues. These are issues and relations I’ve considered ever since my college days in the 70’s. After a couple of years study Business and Economics it became clear to me that something more was needed; more then theoretical formulaic studies which seemed but a body without soul.

So seeking a life more well rounded and to complete my degree work I found classes in topics such as land trusts and cooperatives. Never the less during those final years of college and ever since then, I spent most of my time exploring all things psychological, spiritual, philosophical & practical. Finally after about 20 years of working in business, management; living sometimes in community, teaching yoga, and exploring the western USA, I finally moved to California; where I’ve lived now more than 20 years.

Here now; Living simply, in a lovely community, nurturing sacred ideals of a truly Universal Fellowship. Living to seek wisdom regarding how, we together may embody our truest ideals of the heart. To live life as if this world is a Universal Heart Sanctuary builds within us a foundation for a Universal Holistic Culture; grounded in healing rather than judging. Such Inner sanctuaries establish “a Foundation for Holistic Cultural Advancement”; offering security and fulfillment, both personally and socially. Intentional Community acquires Trans-formative powers, when matched with holistic intentions. Here Social Security implies a foundational structure of ownership for wellness. That is “A Structure of Sustainability, Sufficiency & Security” in the most important areas of life. Work, play, family, creativity, community, aspiration, environment, economics, education, wellness, wisdom, happiness. A reasoned commitment is required to know it, believe it and do it; one can simply look around and consider the alternatives for all our days to come.

Well envisioned Intentional Cooperative Communities can support & nurture every aspect of life’s journey with high quality practical & progressive intentions; in areas such as wellness, all the arts, business, trades, sustainable living as well as any other leading edge or alternative holistic ventures. We’re beyond our time to convince those who haven’t at least suspected as much; thinking it through and through. Start-up communities need to be able to attract progressive constructive serviceful leaders, who with confidence work to actualize some model of sustainable holistic & creative lifestyles. If you, yourself are about ready to take on such an, amazing, beyond words, venture; I’d love to encourage and support; deeply holistic, progressive visions, which can birth living communities anywhere in the world; in all the many ways imagined, dreamed of and believed in. A dream beautiful to share.

What’s needed most is mature creative and courageous openness dedicated to exploring deeply transformative possibilities. I believe in all I suggest, and I hope upon further thought you will consider supporting these ideas, by participating in such endeavors, with like-minded aspiring reality dreamers. Like-mindedness itself grows from trust nurtured by collaborative growth in essential ways.

Structurally I believe such communities should act professionally somewhat like progressive participatory companies. First, by way of organizational communication, constructively sharing views; hopes dreams and plans, doubts & needs. Demonstrating a commitment to form organizations, offering ownership in order to establish funds invested in real property. I hope you yourself may consider the immeasurable value of dedicating heart/mind energy & talents to a deeper experience of wholeness in our lives; which is what mature dedication to relationships within community offer in truly priceless ways.

In support of your own aspirations and efforts I hope your dreams of wellness may include working with others for a sustainable culture. If not what does the future hold? Are you on course to find a path fulfilling & sustaining to your highest dreams? And what will we leave to the future? Dedicated to creatively pursuing a dream how do we make them real? May I say, by working together.When we collaborate creatively as a holistic culture our mutual support is a precious blessing to all, now and in the future.

Paramahansa Yogananda on Resurrection and Christ Consciousness

From the April 2010 edition of the Self-Realization Fellowship eNewsletter

Paramahansa Yogananda on Resurrection and Christ Consciousness

Paramahansa Yogananda pranam

Behold thine immortal Self resurrected with Christ in the illuminating Light of Christ Consciousness, present in every soul, every flower, every atom.
Be One With Christ Consciousness

When we open our inner eyes of soul wisdom, we behold the omnipresent Light of God. Within this Light is the consciousness of Christ, the “Son” or pure reflection of God present everywhere in the universe. This Christ Consciousness, the Infinite Christ, is God’s intelligence and love knocking on the closed eyelids of our souls, urging us that all we have to do is look to this Light within and we shall see all ignorance and diversities vanish. To him who has opened his inner eye, everything is One.


Resurrection means that the universal Spirit present in all creation as the Christ Consciousness is constantly being resurrected − awakened or manifested − in everything. Whenever you do away with ignorance and think good thoughts, Christ is being resurrected within you; that is, the Christ Consciousness that was fully manifested in Jesus is awakening within you.
Resurrection is not the power of Spirit in the body of Jesus only; Spirit is in everyone. Nor does man have to die in order to resurrect Spirit. The physical resurrection of Christ was only part of the lesson of his life. Every time you give up a weakness and feel happy in being good, Christ is resurrected anew. You can bring Christ Consciousness within you right now.


Resurrect your calmness from beneath the soil of restlessness; resurrect your wisdom from the enshrouding earthliness of ignorance; resurrect your love from beneath the sod of mundane human attachment − with its limited love for family, society, and country − to divine love for all.


To find the real Christ you must expand your consciousness as Jesus did….The physical way of practicing what Christ taught is to behave toward all as the children of your own Father, and the spiritual way is to meditate until you feel the vast joy of God through the Christ Consciousness. Universal brotherhood will not come until, by deepest concentration and devotion, you stand aside from all your restless thoughts and feelings and sit in the temple of your soul, wherein the vast joy of God expands and engulfs this world, and you realize there is naught else but That.

The Resurrection of Jesus in Light of Kriya Yoga

We understand resurrection in its true sense when we comprehend the yoga science that clearly defines the underlying principles by which Jesus resurrected his crucified body into the freedom and light of God….
Jesus’ resurrection was little understood, and much disbelieved even though he made himself visible to hundreds of people − not only to his close disciples. In those days they comprehended only that Jesus was dead and then he was alive, but they did not understand the science and art of ascension and resurrection, as is defined in the timeless scriptures of Yoga. No other science has detailed the descent of the individualized consciousness of God as the soul into man and its evolutionary and spiritual ascent back into Spirit. In this modern age, Kriya Yoga has been brought forward after being lost in the dark ages, as a definite method to hasten the spiritual evolution of human consciousness and open the inner cerebrospinal pathway of ascension.

Prayer and Affirmation for Easter Morning

“Heavenly Christ, saturate our consciousness with Thy consciousness. Give us a new birth in Thee.”

Affirm and feel:


“Heavenly Father, awaken me in Christ Consciousness.

Christ and I are one.
Joy and I are one.
Peace and I are one.
Wisdom and I are one.                        
Love and I are one.
Bliss and I are one.
Christ and I are one. Christ and I are one. Christ and I are one.”

“On the Road to Shambala”

“On the Road to Shambala”

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambala
Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame
With the rain in Shambala

Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind
On the road to Shambala
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind
On the road to Shambala

How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala

I can tell my sister by the flowers in her eyes
On the road to Shambala
I can tell my brother by the flowers in his eyes
On the road to Shambala

How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
Tell me how does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
