On Ice and Newsletters

The last few days have been warm enough to actually sit outside and watch ice melt, always one of my favorite activities though I usually don’t get around to it until late March or early April. I know water is an overused metaphor for spirituality but truly, watching it transform from rigid ice to flowing water is always astounding to me . . .

I just sent out a newsletter. If you’d like to receive it but don’t, you can sign up in the sidebar or here. If you’re subscribed and would rather not be, you should be able to disentangle yourself via the email itself, but if you have any problems in that regard, let me know. I can manually subscribe or unsubscribe you. No hard feelings!

I have been aware lately of the depth of my personal resistance to awakening – it’s not pretty – and that’s what I wrote about. Honesty in this regard, as opposed to struggling for some spiritual ideal, seems prudent. Or easier anyway. How little we have to do when you get down to it . . .

Work and a couple other writing projects have taken a fair amount of my time lately – and watching ice melt, of course – and so I haven’t been posting as much or tending to comments or my inbox and so forth. There’s a freeze coming; I’ll regain my rhythm. In the interim, thank you, as always, for being here in your patient, kind and attentive way. It means more than you know.

    I enjoyed your newsletter. I especially liked how it emphasized honesty with Your Self/God. Thank you.

    Sean, are the blog posts and your newsletter the same thing? I enjoy reading all of your material and I don’t want to miss anything. Thanks.

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for the kind words. No – the newsletter is its own thing and doesn’t get posted here.

      Thanks!

    Hi Sean, Do not feel obligated to come out with a newsletter or post on a regular basis. You are dealing with this illusion like the rest of us. I love hearing what insight your illusion has brought you, which amazingly so, I can more often than not, relate to. These writings are done for us as much as for yourself. Sort of like when I teach Pilates. It is a 2 way street. I always look forward to them whenever they happen. Good to hear from you.

    Hi Sean,

    It’s always good to hear when others are struggling and procrastinating. The resistance of the ego is quite something to observe. We are told to not force the process however but to just be with the flow, and just like your ice we melt and freeze over and over, but making progress just the same in ways we are not even aware of. Thank you for reminding me once again that I am not alone in this journey of two steps forward one step back.

    Sean, I loved the newsletter. It just made me feel better. It was delivered just in time. Isn’t everything, always? So, thank you.

    Thank you for the newsletter Sean, loved it! As always it came with an honestly which enables us all to relate to it. It is good to know that I am not alone in my resistance and to be reminded that Jesus gently waits for us to go to Him when we are ready. I think that everybody that has read your newletter has received a healing from it. Keep them coming they are such a gift:)
    Much Love,
