The Creative Matrix: Awakening to Find Ourselves Home

“We do not live on the Earth, we are a part of how the Earth lives.”
~David Richo~

Everything we need is right here NOW, as we learn to cherish the gift of Life, the Living Presence that holds us in her arms. Look around and get a glimpse of your original face, the Creative Matrix that has brought All of us into Being.

Forests, lovers, galaxies, flowers, rivers, mountains, moons and countless living beings- our Universe moves and dances as each of us. Born of Earth, animated by solar winds, we are the children of evolution’s story, Nature’s emergence on the stage of cosmic history.

Receiving the sacred gifts of this world through the miracle of perception. Silence the clutter of thoughts, step outside the categories of limited perceptions. Open your mind and senses, allow yourself to be welcomed back, by the small gestures of all things, the unfolding golden patterning of our home, this Cosmic Creation…

All flowering into this moment, creative expressions of our sacred totality. Waiting, just waiting, for our minds to quiet, our hearts to open and our eyes to see…

“Returning to the source is stillness,” Lao Tsu whispers across the ages. When your inner being is gentle and still, like a mountain lake, experience expands into presence, becoming a reflection and expression of the world.

Like Venus stirring from her sleep, we awaken to find ourselves home. Even when we were lost in dreams, we’ve always been home.



“The basic laws of the universe are simple, but because our senses are limited, we can’t grasp them. There is a pattern in creation.” ~Albert Einstein
