Love is Awakening

dining hall

For the most part, there is not very much happening. The clouds drift across the sky, the river meanders to the Ocean. And the song of the Ocean is an endless lullaby, the divine breath that carries the infinitesimal movements of countless beings. This vast, teeming emptiness is that silent, all-pervasive consciousness that we ourselves are. Limits only exist within the limitless. There is only this invitation to surrender to this, your own Presence, timeless, carefree, witness to all that is…

Prosperity, Abundance, Inspiration

Hello!

According to my Gene Keys profile, my life’s work is being and my evolution is florescence. Being is winter… everything is stripped away until only the bare essential remains–the simple reality of existence. Florescence, on the other hand, is Spring, the essence of life in motion as a spontaneous creative outburst of life in all its wild magnificence.

I love this duality of being and florescence. In the book, Richard Rudd describes being as the archetype of the arahat, who has attained enlightenment and has nothing left to do, whereas florescence is the bodhisattva, who vows to strive and remain in samsara until all beings are liberated.

As it is Spring, I am connecting with the energy of florescence. I am cultivating this insight, also via Richard Rudd, “People don’t need guidance, they just need love. They just need to remember what true love feels like.”

I love this video. It’s so beautiful! So in the spirit of Spring, in the spirit of evolving into my creative genius, I’m going fishing… “I will make you a fisher of men!” And like Amma, “my religion is love.” So I offer all these services and gifts that are just ways for me to share my love and deepen into my love, which is my purpose.

Just a million ways to share the gift of love and spend my life in joyful creation. Idealistic? Impossible? Why? A growing reality I would invite you into.

I have set up an art gallery to showcase my sacred geometry mandalas and photography. I hope it takes off and that anyone who loves these pieces takes a moment to share them with friends & family. I’m also open to doing custom prints for anyone who is interested, which could save you some money.

I have all these pieces and I’m ready to scatter them into the wind. Every creation has a person whose heart it will speak to. And the more people who are moved by a creation the more that creation takes on a psychic love of its own. Right?

I’ve also started creating these Fiverr gigs. They’re little services I offer for $5. Some of them are not so little… Gene Keys readings, Angelic Song creation… others are very little–hug a tree, hug my mom. They’re all just ways to share my love. And why should I charge money for love? Well, it’s just a big joke, really. Maybe so we can start to see that this whole game of money and spirituality and separation is a big joke we’ve played on ourselves. And to pay the rent. Yes, in absurdity the cosmic meets the mundane 😉

Along with this, I’d like to create more videos with contemplations and poetry and Gene Keys stuff, get my music out there more, create sacred tea journeys with Gene Keys contemplations, get a Hang (drum), work on my story about my brother, travel, connect with more people, live a life of service and joy! Extend my online presence, embrace my gifts and self-love and reach anyone who is open to receive this abundance and enjoy it 🙂

And it’s not a stressful undertaking of burdening myself with a bunch of work to “get by,” it’s a joyful risk of creating my own path and getting to know myself better, and understand what is possible and what people respond to.

Here’s a link to some music, by the way:

For anyone inspired by the Sun Hermit, I’d also like to start offering a service that you can get your own story, ask your own question, and have a little conversation with the sage himself.  I don’t know what will pick up and what will drop away, and if this is all sustainable or not. But… I’m having fun! It’s an adventure!

I’d love to hear about your own journey and insights or challenges related to prosperity.

And, as I’m getting in the habit of saying, if this touches your heart in any way, share it with your friends and family! There’s so much out there, so many people expressing their creative genius and also so many people trying to make some money. I am one in the great flood. Nevertheless, this whole divine play runs along the currents of grace… I surrender to the currents of life, and trust that, if there are those who will benefit from what I have to share, we will find each other. And if I have that one person who gets really turned on by all this, and shares it enthusiastically with a lot of people, it could make all the difference 🙂

Many blessings to you all!

With love,

Tom

Devotion!!

Hello, dear ones!

Yesterday, just in time for Amma’s birthday, I released a CD online. I’ve decided to call it Devotion, and release it under the moniker Tomas Muriel

https://tomasmuriel.bandcamp.com

Most of my life I’ve gone by the name Tom, but before I was born my Dad wanted to name me Tomas. My Mom wanted Tom, and she won 😉 Using the name Tomas is about honoring my Dad and the qualities he has brought into my life, stability, confidence, competence, hard work and perseverance.

Muriel is a name that came to me while I was contemplating my guardian angel. It came in and felt right. Uriel is a more well-known angel, the angel of fire and light. Muriel, for me, is Ma + Uriel, the M brings in the presence of the Holy Mother and softens Uriel’s fire into a graceful, guiding light. Like Kuan Yin, Muriel for me is androgynous, a marriage of masculine and feminine qualities. Muriel can be male or female, depending on your perspective, or what you need in the moment. What a scary thing, to be so undefined!

According to this webpage, Muriel allows us to get in touch with our deepest emotions, which is what writing this music has been all about for me. According to this page, Muriel is the angel of healing pets, finding love and peace, and making your garden grow! I love this tenderness and innocence. I love pets, flowers and children. This is where I really see the divine, in the effortless blossoming of a flower, in the ecstatic playfulness and boundless energy of a child, in the simple being of a pet’s presence. And making this music has been about growing my garden, about tending to the blossoms of my soul and seeing what emerges from my own process of diving into the emotional depths.

My prayer is that I can share all of this through the music I have created, in the service of bringing us all closer to the divine. I have found that devotion is not always a comfortable process, as it takes us through the dark night of the soul and destabilizes our ideas about who we are, why we are here, and what the future holds. In true devotion, everything is shaken to the very core, and all we can do is cry out to some power that seems so very far from our hearts…

This album is existential, it is not about ideas about this spiritual tradition or the other, or right and wrong ways to live. It is about recognizing the common human themes that bridge all the various traditions and cultural expressions of the world. It is about seeing every song as a song of longing and satisfaction, praise and plea, separation and reunion, fall and redemption. It is about surrendering to our own emotional nature, and finding a peace or freedom in that very surrender. That is the invitation I extend through this music, and I hope you take it.

I hope you listen, enjoy, allow yourself to be moved, and share this with anyone you feel would be open to receiving it. And even if you don’t, I hope this joy brings you some inspiration of your own. Many blessings, may you all be happy.

With love,

Tom
