from the beginning of time
to the end of time
there will always only be this suchness
without taste, containing all flavors
without sight, containing all colors
without preference, containing all loves
without knowing, containing all wisdom
call it any name
call it none
seek it, lose it
be it, forget it
it is still there
claim it is elsewhere
yet here it remains
call it the king of kings
the light in all darkness
i have seen you a thousand times over
and will never tire of you
i have given my Life to you
because it has always been yours anyway
Love beyond loves
the holiest of names
the most brilliant of ecstasies
more prostrations await
even the dirt is consecrated magic
Your Light unwavering.

Are you Fully Present right now? Or is your mind wandering? There is now science out that Being Present has a strong correlation with happiness, while the mind wandering - even if it's thinking about something pleasant - is detracting from your happiness. I am happy to help you cultivate your ability to Be Present, via one-on-one or group sessions... and thus contribute to your In The Moment happiness. ~ de Vie - Dare to Be Present® - http://www.DareToBePresent.com . And here's a TED talk about that science -

"There is neither evolution nor destiny; only Being." ~ Einstein
Our society puts SOOOOO much emphasis and value on DOING. Even in the so-called spiritual/conscious/awakened circles - those who declare themselves to be spiritual, awakened, and living conscious lives - there is still Great Emphasis on Doing & Becoming. In fact, it is a prevalent marketing technique. "If you buy this service, you will BECOME, you will TRANSFORM, you will ACHIEVE, you will GET." (Not direct quote.) More doing, more achieving. And all the while, the BEING is sitting there, here, waiting, waiting, waiting. The BEING - which is always NOW - wants to be recognized, wants to be experienced. And that BEING has NOTHING to do with accomplishing, arriving, reaching, attaining, etc., etc., whether it is the traditional values of external success - getting more money, a beautiful wife, a big house, social status, etc. - or the spiritual values - getting transformation, saving the world, becoming enlightened - or, the external success couched in the language and methods of the spiritual - wealth through conscious intention, the best sex of your life acquired through inner transformational work, the woman of your dreams through visualization practices. Still getting, getting, getting, doing, doing, doing. And, what about the BEING, so long neglected, so long ignored, so long deemed Not Good Enough, so long covered up by all the doing, in whatever realm? What about YOUR Being? Your Being that is still here now, because it can only ever be Here Now. Your Being which is perfectly imperfect, which does not need any particular conditions in order to Just Be, which is simply just waiting for You to arrive... in You. Your Being is waiting for You to Arrive in You. Not because you're "good enough," not because you're enlightened enough, not because you've served others enough, not because you're wealthy enough, not because you've worked hard enough, not because you're popular enough, but simply because YOU ARE. YOU ARE. End of story - beginning of story.
When I offer my Dare to Be Present® service to you I'm doing something rather radical. Although Presence can heal you, although Presence gives you the wealth of the universe, although Presence is a way to greater enjoyment, although Presence is the only way to be with your beloved, although Presence is the only way to enlightenment, although Presence CAN do all sorts of things for you, and DOES open all sorts of doors, it is, fundamentally, radically, only HERE NOW. That is its power, its pulse, its radical aliveness. Do you want to come home to yourself? Do you? I want you to come home to yourself.
In order to be FULLY HERE NOW, everything must be surrendered. HERE NOW is a great spaciousness. In order to really GET IT, you have to give up. We have to give up.
Dear Being, I honor You. I honor Your Existence Now - simply because you are alive. Not because you've accomplished something, not because of your aspirations, not because of what you've experienced in the past, but because YOU ARE ALIVE.
Dare to be fully alive. Now.
~ de Vie

Some feedback from Dare to Be Present® participants:
"I like that de Vie is passionate about being present. I experience de Vie as a very kind and good listener when facilitating 'presence' or direct in-the-moment experiencing. de Vie is supporting her clients' ability to allow and identify whatever emotions, sensations and thoughts are arising and contributing to their own capacity to witness whatever arises with love." - Debra London M.D., Psychiatrist
“Thanks again SO much de Vie for the Dare to Be Present session you shared with me, I am very grateful for it and the awareness you helped bring to the matters therein.” - anonymity requested

Interesting scientific factoid heard from an M.D. Psychiatrist's TED talk today: a daily Gratitude practice works better than Prozac. Not really surprising since Prozac doesn't work any better than Placebo. Oh and a simple quick Gratitude practice doesn't have any nasty side-effects.

How are you with your Inner Emptiness?
none of these words are it, none of them
i went to where there was only wildness
i felt god there
i felt the freedom there
i cannot save this world - this world of lies
to wake up is to be willing to have one's heart broken
for what humanity has done to itself and the earth
i am at home in the bright nothingness
in love with it, actually, and utterly devoted
i taste god in the wind, when i'm not smelling the pollution
i wanted to share with you a little about where i'm coming from
i'm coming from a land of no words
a land of bright awareness
a land of complete mental nakedness
where nothing is covering the bare truth of is-ness
i do not want to be a part of the world of lies.
god gave us freedom
this brilliant freedom of creation
to wake up now is to be willing to have one's heart broken
the earth remains endlessly creating
death is a promise
how long will people hold onto their lies?
will they relinquish them willingly,
or have the lies wrenched from them in death's guarantee?
i don't know... but i do know nature keeps on with its endless spring.
i do not want to be a part of the world of lies
and there are so, so, so many lies
so i just give this
i come from a land of being
where everything is naked with its is-ness
there is nothing to hide because it is all in plain view for those who
remember they have eyes to see
it is a dangerous thing to admit we see
(the emperor has no clothes)
but i will not deny the plain vision anymore
i cried because of all of the lies
the castles made of sand
if only they were made of something as innocent as sand...
the lies are made of much more malevolent materials than sand.
these words will get eaten up by the machine
some will hear them
some will receive them
today there is a great letting go
that had been on its way for awhile
like the last piece of snake skin that is shed
or the last fragment of shell that falls.
if you're honest, i will hear you.
