It seems like a long while since I've come to the Power Peek to write you. Usually, I'm busy putting it all together and I save my dialogue for a radio show or perhaps a post on Facebook. But sometimes there are events that compel me and it would seem a shame to let them pass without a comment or at least an acknowledgement.
In the past week Three of my staff lost a close parent. Two of the staff are Sisters so the total parental loss is two, but the closeness of events seems no less remarkable. Kristi Brower and Katie Weaver lost their beloved father and Erica Longdon, lost her beloved Stepmother.
It's clear to all of us that death is an inevitable truth in this reality. In fact, thanks to my A Course In Miracles studies the existence of death is one of the main tenants that helped me understand that this world could not have been created by LOVE. It cannot be the extension of the work of the most loving force because REAL love has no opposite, No Death, No abandonment and no fear.
But, thoughts like that do us little good in times when our reality continues to threaten us to our core. When people that we rely on are stripped from us and thoughts of safety are a million miles away. Death, in a word, can be devastating. Sometimes the best we can do is give an extension of sympathy to remind the people left behind that they are not alone in their pain.
Death makes me angry because it reminds me that I am still a part of a nonsensical system touting that we are children of Divine Love who have been dumped on a terror filled island where bad, REALLY bad, things happen. Somehow we accept the obvious oxymoron without question. Like "What is the child of the most supreme loving force doing in a place like this?"
For many of us, to question what makes us safe is terrifying. But would you want a battered friend, beaten frequently by her spouse, to stay because she 'believes' the alternatives are too scary? Of course not. And in that same way, I think we must learn to ask the scary questions so that we can see whether this Source of pure love will "Smite us" with anger if we ask important questions.
Imagine a time when the Sun was thought to be the God Ra. Imagine being the person who says, "I think Ra is a dying star made of serious gases!"
Knowledge is power. God doesn't have to remain a myth. We can question everything with some level of rationale. Try asking some tough questions: What is a Soul? Do they really have "Ages" (old soul?)? Do they have lessons they really need to learn? Why? What about Angels? Does God really need help? Where ever you land, at least you started a very important process. Getting to your own truth!
I've placed a excerpt from Ken Wapnick who poses some intersting perspectives from A Couse In Miracles. I know it's not for everyone, but it might be helpful to some. Click here for Ken's audio!
Katie, Kristi, and Erica, I hope you find comfort in this difficult time and will remember the difference your love made.

As I'm writing this, we're waiting for a storm to arrive. I mean this literally. The city is buzzing, the grocery stores are packed and people are driving like maniacs.
This is common when it comes to storms around these here parts. You'd think that since we live in Colorado, we'd be used to it by now, but the truth is that no one should ever get used to the weather or take it for granted. It changes all the time. We have a saying here in Colorado: if you don't like the weather, just wait 20 minutes.
I love weather and always have. I've studied it for a long time. I believe that those of us interested in metaphysics have a lot to learn from weather.
I even took a meteorology class in college. It didn't turn out so well. The class was touted as being for non-science majors, which was me and most of the class. The teacher who taught the class, however, believe that everyone should know the basics of modern physics, especially weak-minded historians, philosophers and artists. He was as dry as the West Texas sand and as cold as Christmas day in Greenland.
Even he couldn't ruin my love for weather.
No matter where you live, no matter what you do, you're surrounded by the atmosphere and by changes in that atmosphere on a moment to moment basis. It's never the same show twice and is always fascinating and exciting.
Watching a huge column of clouds come over the mountains in the summertime quickens the pulse and makes one wonder what sort of turbulent, unhinged energy is coming our way. I've seen more than one tornado in my life and while I'm glad I've never been in one, they are awe inspiring.
In my youth (I left that youth in my mid-thirties), I'd run outside and watch tornadoes as they formed, too close for sanity. Electricity charged the air, hail bounced around me and winds swirled, taking my breath away.
Obviously, I was an idiot. But, I was so enamored with the power of nature and its ability to amaze and to change the very fabric of the landscape around us that I really couldn't help myself.
I had a friend who was struck by lightning, twice. It changed him significantly, although I can't say necessarily for the worse. It also made me realize that getting struck was not only possible but entirely too close to home for comfort. He lived in my neighborhood, and both times he was struck, he was close to his home.
Along with lightning, tornadoes were known as The Fingers of God. It was said that they touched those people whose attention he wanted to get. That would do it. Judgment was often passed onto the victims of such natural calamities. Ben Franklin's lightning rod changed that, thankfully.
In Tarot, the Royalty can represent forces of nature and weather. Once you get a feel for who's what, for example a rainbow is the Queen of Wands and the Knight of Swords the tempest as it storms across the earth, you begin to get a feel for who is coming before they get here. I suppose you could say it's a sort of intuitive weather forecasting system. It's pretty darn accurate and teaches much about the Arts, as well as honing one's intuition.
For example, what I'm feeling right now isn't just that a storm is coming but that it has seen much on its journey, gathered an astounding amount of energy and is inevitably going to impact us. It doesn't feel terrible, but it does seem intent on being noticed.
Complaining about a storm is like complaining that blue is a bad choice for the color of the sky.
No matter where you live and what the weather's like, take some time to appreciate it. Feel it and sense the energy that comes with a transition and the change of seasons. The ebb and flow of air pressure, the tidal movement of moisture in the atmosphere, the very laws of nature that rule every one of us, hold the keys to many of the most elusive mysteries.
Pay attention. Doing so will enhance your life in a way you may not anticipate, one that I think you will appreciate forever.
No matter how this storm goes, I'm loving every second of feeling it head our way. The magnificence of nature should never be forgotten. Therein lies our connection to each other, the planet and the Universe at large.
Until next week, I wish you all fascinating skies and friendly breezes.
Program Note: Out of Mo's Mind, Wednesday, March 13th, 9 AM, Pacific Daylight Time. The topic will be, "Character." What is character? Do you have it? Do we need it? Is it a dwindling resource or will we always have strength of character? How can be certain that our character is worthy of our expectations? How can we deal with those who have none? Let's discuss this live. Join me!
Also, Part 2 of my class on Divination with Ordinary Playing Cardswill be on Thursday, March 14th at 3 PM at 12academy.com. It'll be recorded so you don't have to be there in real time to experience the class.

I am taking this week off from writing because my sweet Dad went to Heaven on Friday. I would like to share this article with you again. It is as true now as it was when I originally wrote it.
I have been thinking a lot about happiness lately. I live with 5 cats, who are tremendous examples of happiness. As I write this my kitty, Sandy, is asleep on my lap with the most content smile on her face. One thing I have learned from watching cat happiness is that happiness comes from being, not doing. My cats do very little throughout the day, but seem to be the most content and peaceful beings I know. It is a funny myth most of us grew up with that happiness comes from hard work and perseverance. I'm pretty sure that happiness actually comes from just being ourselves, and not getting too hung up on what we have or have not accomplished.
Sandy had a rough start to life. I found her outside a gas station when she was about 8 weeks old. She was dirty and skinny and sick. It took six months to get her little body functioning normally so she could start growing. That was 2 years ago and now she is a happy, healthy cat. The interesting thing is that she seems unaffected by her past. She is happy and carefree and obviously feels safe and loved. The fact that her kitty mind can't relive her past and fret about her future is a huge contributor to her happiness. She lives in the moment, and everything is great in this moment. This is where we humans get hung up.
Over the past several years I have worked to cultivate a "All is well in the here and now" attitude. It is a challenge not to lament the past and worry about the future. When I catch myself thinking about somewhere other than here and now I remind myself to stop and look around. Is everything ok in this moment? If so, then I remind myself that I am ok, and right now is all I have control over. If everything is not ok in that very moment then I have the opportunity to make a change, right then when I actually have some control. I am not saying that this is easy or that I don't get stuck in cycles of over thinking the past and future. This definitely happens, but I can usually bring myself back to a sense of peace by returning to the moment.
My Dad is dying of Prostate Cancer. He has been on Hospice for 8 months and his condition deteriorates a little more each day. I see him every other day and do my best to spend quality time talking and laughing with him. This has been a real challenge to my "live in the moment" philosophy. I know what is coming and that makes it hard not to worry about the future. I know I can't change it or control it, but my ego has a strong desire to predict what is coming and worry about things I can't possibly do anything about. I continue to work at bringing myself back to the now when worries about my Dad surface.
Somedays I handle it great, I feel happy and see my life going in a positive direction. Other days are much harder. I think that what I am doing is practicing happiness, kind of like practicing the Clarinet or practicing meditation. Each day presents a new challenge to be here now. I know that true happiness is fluid, and that real emotions still occur. It is the ability to return to a happy state after a troubling experience or emotion that indicates that we truly are happy on the inside.
