Develop Internal Strength I’m enjoying the process! Here’s a sneak peek of new #teeshirt samples for summer from @yesrising. Why I do this? I believe wherever we are in life, we are never too old, too evolved, or too successful for messages or affirmations of hope and possibility. We never […]

I’m Enjoying the Process!

A Song Called Grace


Service
Asking Ourselves the Important Questions Life purpose evolves as we do. Our purpose, passion, intentions and service may change as we grow, sometimes slightly sometimes greatly. More than that, hopefully, deeper with each life experience we encounter. To me, purpose is being present as the best person we can be […]

Purpose Through Service




sunchronicity
What is Given, Received Let us take refuge in our likeness when unknown eyes run into ours. Breathe — in the expanse offered when such gaze from a stranger discerns deeper connection. Perhaps we never met, true, still we know some-thing about each other. Our personality may have forgotten, but […]

WAKING INSTANTS 09: JOSEPHINE “To the left, to the left” she would chant to Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable”. Josephine’s chanting brought a gentle laughter to all of us, at any given time. With delivered acceptance. Jo, as she was often referred, didn’t fit into the culture of mainstream rules and regulations — […]

WAKING INSTANTS: AMBROZINE About 18 years old, I worked in a small hardware store located about 100 feet from Narragansett Bay in Newport, Rhode Island — an international sailing port that brought people in from all over the world. Ambrozine was from Trinidad and spoke English in a way that […]

Joy
Learning to move forward into JOY, we first come to EXPECT JOY. Our THOUGHTs regulate our body, mind and spirit —So, JOY emerging first as thought is the POSSIBILITY. JOY further emerging as expectation (intent or confidence or hope) fused with POSITIVE EMOTION (passion or desire or excitement) is its […]

Wayne Dyer
My Lesson from Wayne Dyer As The Hay House World Summit 2016 comes to a close, it is uncanny that I chose Wayne Dyer’s The Next Step as the last talk to listen to. I didn’t do it intentionally —this was synchronicity at work. As I connect the dots of […]

We are all heroes of Love. We are heroes of our dreams — of our children — and of our own inner child. Our journey is courageous dear friends and bitter and bright — full of colour and mystery and light. We are all heroes of LOVE. Why are we […]

Visionary
One definition of visionary is that it is the thinking and planning of imaginative ideas. I believe we have the Power to Redefine our personal future. That as a global thinking society, we possess the skill and means to lift, empower, and motivate each other — that we can turn […]

Taking Refuge
Take refuge when someone’s eyes run into ours. Breathe — in the expansive instant when a glance discerns a deeper connection. Perhaps we never met, yet we know something about each other. Something our personalities forgot but our soul has not. Our body’s may have changed but our eyes remain […]

Infinite Wisdom – Unbroken Bonds Around the age of five is the first memory I have of someone dying. It was a tumultuous combination of tremendous loss and the oddity that something greater had occurred — both a miracle and a tragedy. I would never see this person again during […]

Surrender 3
Asking for help can sometimes feel as if we are being submissive. But truly asking from our heart is allowing for possibility to form. Asking, either out loud or in silence, is using our voice as an instrument through which the Universe can then speak.  Asking for help opens our […]

Our Voice is an Instrument




compassion
When did ego go wrong, deciding that faster, better, squashing out each other’s spirits was the way to survive on our planet? How did we escalate our differences rather than be inclusive of our likeness and compassion and love? Modern civilization continues to create a culture of striving rather than […]

Slowing Aggression or Compassionate Cooperation


giving 1
Sunday morning brings a quiet gratitude for reflecting on nice people. We usually put a price tag on the word generous or generosity, as our culture illustrates to us in ads for gifts of jewels and baubles. Being generous is about giving. Anything. Your time, your smile, your ear to […]
