On Merging Science and Creationism

Jun 09, 2019 by Luann Robinson Hull

Dear Friends,

Several weeks ago, someone asked me if I’d ever studied atheism.  Over my 25 years of researching human consciousness, science and spiritual growth, I had to say the topic hadn’t crossed my radar.  Apart from having read The Origin, where Dan Brown pits creationism against science, which was interesting (though not convincing) I’ve never had the slightest inclination to explore the subject.

Love Lamp

Love Lamp
Jun 17, 2013 by Luann Robinson Hull
Realize that you have an inexhaustible inner light that glows even in your darkest moments. This light is eternal. It can never be extinguished. And the only way for you to actually experience its full, radiant brilliance is to embrace all of those attributes in yourself that you love, and then accept the qualities that you would rather not acknowledge. How is this possible? By opening our hearts and allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, over and over again, eventually, what you will come to realize, as you proceed with such a practice, is that all of your suffering is actually just a result of your perceptions, having nothing...

On Connecting

May 08, 2013 by Luann Robinson Hull
Many of the great philosophers say that the core of all suffering is rooted in the belief of a self separate from others and from God (or your version of what created you). If this is indeed so, it seems especially odd to me how we humans frequently sabotage our chances for connection with people and the world around us by our own behaviors and attitudes.

I am currently visiting NYC where it appears that this “separation syndrome” is alive and well. Roughly two million people live in Manhattan, and on top of that around 16 million come and go to and from the city each day. Of this demographic many ride the subway on which I have recently had occasion...

Have a Little Tenderness

Have a Little Tenderness
Apr 07, 2013 by Luann Robinson Hull
If you choose to have a little tenderness toward yourself, or self-love, it can be the Launch Pad to happiness in life and in love.

HAVE A LITTLE TENDERNESS WITH SELF-LOVE: THE LAUNCH PAD The journey of loving and being loved requires making a lifelong commitment to self-love and self-respect. Admit to yourself that you have made mistakes, celebrate your willingness to learn from these errors, and honor your desire to discover and develop your dreams. Be as tender, patient, compassionate, and kind to yourself as you would be to an aging, beloved elder or a tiny, helpless newborn. Learn to love who you are without exceptions. Regard your mistakes as opportunities (I know it sounds cliched, but it really is the...

Cosmic Love Story Revisited

Cosmic Love Story Revisited
Mar 04, 2013 by Luann Robinson Hull
"For a fully enlightened being, the difference between what is neurosis and what is wisdom is very hard to perceive, because somehow the energy underlying both is the same." - Chodron (1991, p. 21)

Love Story ♡ (Photo credit: Flocke™)

Hope and fear are intimately connected. There are things we like and want to keep, and there are things we don't like and want to get rid of. We are attached, and repelled; repelled and attached. It is easy to let go when we don't want something anymore, but letting go of something that we still desire, or even crave on some level, is quite another matter. How can we come to know more intimately the feelings we...

Dear Hearts,

Wanting to do a post Valentine’s Day “check-in” with you! I was recently accepted as a writer for Huffington Post. My first article was titled “ 3 Practical Valentine’s Tips for Attracting or Enhancing Love” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/luann-robinson-hull/love-advice_b_2641372.html).

Watch Your Words

Watch Your Words
Feb 11, 2013 by Luann Robinson Hull
The 5th and final step in our series on New Year, New View, New Perspective, is: “Watch Your Words”

In the following vignette, we are coming from the female perspective, though clearly the genders can be flipped to fit any scenario/dialogue where the example below could be useful.

“Do not cause harm by your words, actions, and deeds. Make certain there are no hidden agendas in what you are presenting. Look at the facts from a place of observation instead of judgment and state them clearly. 

Do say, “I noticed that when you were an hour late for dinner it seemed to really bother me. Can you help me understand what caused your delay? How can we communicate more clearly next time? I am willing to be...

How "Happily Ever After…Right Now" Helps Me Keep My Joy - by Veronica Cuyugan

How "Happily Ever After…Right Now" Helps Me Keep My Joy - by Veronica Cuyugan
Dec 16, 2012 by Luann Robinson Hull
From the Acknowledgements to the Epilogue, this labor of love I’ve had the utmost privilege of reading has touched my life in such a profound way that I literally want to hand it out to every single woman I know. Happily Ever After…Right Now epitomizes metaphysical guidance between pages – it’s so much more than a self-help book. It’s a comprehensive review of our history; why we react the way we do to certain emotional stimuli and how we can correct ourselves so that we live in our Queen essence. Happily…reiterated the lesson I learned long ago- that happiness does not come from a source outside of me, but rather from within, by nurturing the divine love that is my...

Relationships: Re-Programming Ourselves as Women

Relationships: Re-Programming Ourselves as Women
Dec 03, 2012 by Luann Robinson Hull
It is our ancient conditioning that keeps us stuck in old thought patterns and behaviors about love and relationships. So, then how can we emancipate ourselves from this conditioning's grasp? The primal beliefs and thoughts etched into our consciousness can be automatically triggered by an event. Just like the enchantment that caused Sleeping Beauty to fall asleep when she pricked her finger on the spinning wheel at age sixteen, our old fearful spells kick in when we feel rejected or alone. We can dismantle the power of our ancient conditioning (which wants us to believe that we are sure prey for the lurking monsters) by creating new beliefs and incantations of Entitlement.

The point is that we need to be committed to becoming aware of...

Operating From a Foundation of Power

Operating From a Foundation of Power
Aug 25, 2012 by Luann Robinson Hull

In the primal sense, which is still alive and well, man is all about the hunt and the chase. And woman is all about being saved. If her fears take her over the edge and cause her to do the hunting, the subject of her chase will most likely choose to retreat. Instinctively, he does not want to be caught, or to be responsible for saving anything. He wants to be free, and actually, so does she. By reverting to primitive methods for attaining that freedom, the idea of insufficiency, need, and dependency is re-enforced, perpetuating the drama of the Brute and Babe (our ancient ancestors).

It is time to end the pain/pleasure cycle that began centuries...

Are You Longing for a Prince?

Are You Longing for a Prince?
May 16, 2012 by Luann Robinson Hull
English: ink and charcoal on paper (Photo credit: Wikipedia) "Every woman knows the longing that seems to keep happiness just out of reach. It flutters like a butterfly at the periphery of our consciousness when we listen, as children, to fairy tales and family stories about meeting Prince Charming and living happily ever after. It's the subtle backbeat of our teen years that drives our aching desire to be asked to the homecoming dance or prom. Will I be popular or pretty enough to snag a date -- to be chosen by someone -- anyone?

We have scanned for the Prince since we were old enough to download some of the messages in the Cinderella story (my personal...

Spring Clearing ~ Resurrecting Love, Peace and Hope

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake; a sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world”—Emmet Fox

Reflections and Progress

Sep 06, 2007 by Luann Robinson Hull
Over the past several weeks we have discussed the topic of happiness and what it truly means to be happy. We have talked about how to use loss as a launch pad, alchemizing the lead of our challenges into the gold of our existence. We have reviewed ways to shift our perceptions and to look for some potential pearls in whatever state of temporary peril we may be feeling.

We have also delved into the idea of personality patterns and how those influence our lives. Some of us have practiced the ancient ritual of Ho’oponopono, which involves asking to be healed yourself, of any quality that you resist in another. By doing this we can humbly recognize that we have the...

Conscious Conversations

Jul 31, 2007 by Luann Robinson Hull
We recently completed our third gathering of Conscious Conversations™ in Aspen , Colorado and I am delighted to report that the groups are sprouting in other areas and gaining momentum. What are they: Gatherings of people who meet regularly to support each other in conscious living both practically and philosophically. The Goal: to combine our strengths in achieving an optimal state of personal and collective growth.

The discussions continue to be both thought provoking and inspiring. Among some of the topics mentioned in last week’s Aspen group was a dialogue on how to really make progress with some of the sobering issues currently facing us both individually and globally. The following interpretation of Thomas Hartman's message in The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight, was discussed: “If you don’t raise consciousness by...

Giving & Abundance

May 15, 2007 by Luann Robinson Hull
It is late. I just reached my second travel destination in a week. Upon my arrival, I received an email from my son, with whom I just spent my birthday and Mother’s Day. He has been recovering from surgery and below, writes some amazing words of wisdom, which I wanted to share with all of you, related to what abundance really is.

“What I was able to experience for myself with you being here was the essence of love and giving. I had many ideas in my head about what I wanted to give you for your b-day and Mother's Day. And I have to admit that it was very challenging for me not being able to move about physically and...

Cultivating Self-Love

Mar 20, 2007 by Luann Robinson Hull
I know it isn’t necessarily a glamorous or popular topic, though as we pointed out last week, without it, we can’t have a solid foundation for really loving and being loved. Scott Peck (1978), the legendary author of The Road Less Traveled, defines love as the desire for your own spiritual growth or for that of the beloved. How would you define love? Would your description be similar to Peck’s—wanting growth and expansion for yourself or another? Or does love hold a different meaning in your world?

Regardless of how we come to define love, one thing has become quite clear to me in listening to others as well as making my own personal discoveries. Compromise has no place in a...

How To Eliminate Suffering For Good

Mar 13, 2007 by Luann Robinson Hull
Perhaps Shakespeare’s beautiful words, which were sent out last week, can provide us with some clues:

“Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. Oh no! It is an ever fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love is not Time’s fool It alters not with brief hours and weeks But it bears it out even to the edge of doom.”—William Shakespeare

Someone logged into our forum and offered her thoughts, which echo my own: Without a solid foundation of self-love, it is impossible to maintain the “fixed mark” of love that Shakespeare...

Wanting Love & Being The Love You Want To Have

Mar 06, 2007 by Luann Robinson Hull
Here are some magnificent quotes to consider this week as we contemplate wanting love and being the love you want to have.

"Love is the only thing you get more of by giving it away" Tom Wilson

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. Oh no! it is an ever fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love is not Time's fool... It alters not with brief hours and weeks...

But it bears it out even to the edge of doom." - William Shakespeare

What do these important messages mean to you?

Radiant love, dear hearts!

Luann
