Choosing
Finding our Highest Thought What is our part in choosing our future? I suggest that we can end suffering or we can end civilization. What we have become as we awaken is aware. We can choose one or the other — not both. This is what is meant by saying […]

Miracle
Slowing ourselves down for just a few minutes each morning and night helps bring us to our heart’s center. In my experience, within 7 minutes we begin to notice a release, a peace.  Using meditation, basic breathing techniques, yoga, exercise, walking in nature…any thing we can fit it in our busy day, […]

Gratitude
Waking Instants 04: RUTH Ruth was my second Mother. A friend of the family, she was there from beginning — the day I was born actually. Over the year’s our friendship grew and what we shared is indescribable. Ruth or “Ruthy” as I called her, lived next door and was […]

Metaphysical Love 2
DIVINE LOVE—DIVINE DREAM: I’m going to try and document this writing and learning process along the way hoping I can look back later and see the connections. At some point I plan on writing a book called “Redefining Love”. The concept started for me in 1995 when I began a […]

DIVINE LOVE-DIVINE DREAM



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 […]

Heal
What I think about AWE: I believe that when we are in nature, or exercising or practicing yoga or meditating or praying —that we can naturally elevate ourselves into a state of “Awe”. In that place of recognizing something greater than ourselves — where something vast and magical and mysterious […]

AWE and HEALING



compassion
It’s impossible for people to suffer events of trauma and loss in life and come through it unmarred, unmarked and unchanged. We become changed in ways we wish we didn’t —but we did, and in that comes a gift too. A reverence for life and all of it’s good and […]
