Tight, tight, loose, loose

June 13, 2019


The infinite self is here now. And what I do with that self is up to me. How I approach it. How I relate to it. How ii see it and myself within it.

For most of my life I have been trying to “get it right.” Maybe you can relate. First it was in the material world of doing al the things I thought I needed to have a good life. Then it was in the spiritual world trying to “follow my guidance,” and do the right thing. Lest I do the wrong thing, and the whole world falls down on me. This is more of the same. When I came to the spiritual path I brought my ego with me. Therefore I started behaving much the same way, just with a spiritual notion.
Don’ get me wrong. I see a lot of truth in that, the spirituality of life. But as with most things, I feel the truth is somewhere in the middle. Tight, tight loose, loose as the buddhists say.

I am in this physical body and it must be cared for. I cannot rely on simply faith to feed my body, clothe my body, and shelter my body. I must rely on my own will. My own intellect. And my own foresight based on things that have happened from the past, and that I have learned from watching other people.

Likewise, my spiritual intuition is a gift from God. A gift of higher foresight, and reading between the lines that would not be able to be done with ordinary sight. It is a gift of Grace.


The medicine of the buffalo is grounded spirituality. It teaches us how to ground our visions into reality through right prayer and right action. You can’t have one without the other. Both are equally necessary for a grounded and connected life here.
We all know those fairies who fly off and are never on the ground. We also know those people who are so solidly grounded in their earth life that there is no hope for higher spirituality.

We must hold a solid foundation before we can rise up, lest we fall. The deeper our roots go the higher we can fly. That means we must look at the Earthly aspects of our life here. We must do the best we can to correct our ways and live in a way that honors our self and all life. The more we can do that, the more the higher realms will become available to us.

The universe is intelligent. It is not going to give the tetragrammaton to a newborn. It is going to give it to someone who can handle the responsibility.

Likewise, if we are not able to take care of ourselves and live in a way that honors All life, we are not going to be given the keys to the Kingdom. We must get our internal affairs in order first. Then, once we do that, we will be given more and more responsibility, and more power. Because we are showing that we know what to do with it. We will use it responsibly. This is the heart centered way that honors our self and all others in love.

So often at the beginning of our awakening we rise through the crown and end up in a higher world. One that we had no knowledge of before. Then begins the search to put it all together. Spiritual books, meditation, yoga. All of it. And the quest leads us up out of the crown chakra into higher worlds. We want to live there. The quest becomes all but shattering when we realize we that we have to come back and bring it here to Earth.


This begins the inner work. The deep inner work. To right our human life and bring it into alignment with what we know to be true in the higher realms. This requires a lot of forgiveness, patience, and ease because what happens on the Earthly realms is a lot slower than what happens in the heavenly realms.

As we prove more and more that we are willing to do the work to get our lives in alignment, more and more of that power that we’ve seen in the higher realms becomes available to us. The more we use it for love and upliftment, the more we get. This becomes the spiritual journey. We eventually bring heaven onto Earth, and the power that we know is ours in the higher realms becomes fully available to us. We are the living embodiment of Heaven on Earth.

I talk about this like it’s one place and time that it happens, but it’s not. It’s a gradual process, and that process is the purpose of our life here. It is a journey, not a destination. There is always more. So if you want to get to a destination. Get to here. It is the only place you will find true happiness. As you do the work here in the now, you will manifest more of your own heaven on Earth, and the life that you’ve always known is possible for you will become your reality. it all starts with you. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin.
