This Week’s Quotation:

When faced with the coldness of other people, or the coldness of the world, return that coldness with your warmth. And in the fire that fuels your warmth, transform what the world gives to you without reaction. Let the coldness be transformed and transmuted in your inner fire until it is burnt to ash and ascending flame. Then return the fire of your love to your world. Let your world feel the warmth of the sun through you.

Stoking the Fire

What a profound way to interact with the world, right?

Realizing that we have the power to transmute what is given to us. This is what it means to be an alchemist—to change something from one form to a completely new and improved form. And the world is in desperate need of more empowered alchemists!

I know it may sound like something only an advanced spiritual teacher can do, but I assure you that we all have this capacity.

And it starts by keeping our fires stoked! For me, there are many ways I keep my fire stoked.

My fire roars when I stand in a place of remembrance and honoring of the divine being within. I move in the world with purpose, knowing I am here for something greater. Transmuting energy with my inner fire feels so natural from this place.

Sometimes, all it can take to stoke the fire is to start the day with little acts done in a mindful way. When I wake up, my self-talk sets the tone. Brushing my teeth and dressing can become acts of self-love and devotion to the wonderful one within.

Some days, it feels a bit harder to get that fire stoked, so I may turn to a fellow alchemist friend who can remind me of who I am. Diving into a creative project often gets my fire burning bright. And sometimes, I just need a good old reset, so I attend a retreat or find another way to take a pause from business as usual.

What keeps your fire stoked?

What does it mean to become a sun?

Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.

  1. With you Lana in keeping the fire stoked … and when it goes to low embers, doing whatever it takes such as plunging into creative activity, or seeing the humor in everything, or giving thanks — to rekindle and build the fire again. Thank you. I am also strongly endorsing the on-line program promoted on this site. That’s another great way to stoke the fire. Love to all, Tom c.

  2. What keeps my fire stoked? Simply remembering who I am: a representative of the Creator in human form on earth bringing the fire of Divine Love to all that is contrary to the creative process of life. I am certainly not here to be saved by an imaginary Jesus or anything else. I am here to fully assume the responsibility of spiritually regenerating my world.

  3. All of the above mentioned by you and also reminding myself we are on the biggest adventure of all time, with the most significant opportunity to transform and transmute consciousness – we are becoming a Sun as one humanity.
