No Fear Friday: MEN

NO FEAR FRIDAY When I created No Fear Friday in 2015, my intention was to establish a weekly campaign on INSTAGRAM. Something that focused on taking action from a place of LOVE rather than fear. We are grateful that you follow us @yesrising. Keep taking risks!! About the Author Richard […]

Allow the Unexpected


Our Moral Obligation to All Children It isn’t the blacks or the muslims or the native americans or the jews. It isn’t the gays or the drag queens or the trans community “out to get us” or take what’s ours. It’s not the left or the right or the rich […]

Together, We Have Much More to Gain DIVINE LOVE — that soft voice urging us to hold someones hand. Or to wrap our arms around our children or feel empathy. The feeling we want to help our neighbor or pull someone to safety without condition. Divine Love’s Grace beckons gratitude. […]

Much More to Gain




mystery
JOURNAL ENTRY October 21: I had a friend that used to tell me what I write about was from A Course in Miracles. Even before I knew about the books. Often, in our conversations, he would point out what I was saying to be very similar to a teaching in […]

Journal Entry October 21


better place
A Better Place Marianne Williamson has said “It doesn’t matter where you are, at what level, or circumstance —just DO SOMETHING.” Fight for human rights, world peace, quality healthcare, bullied children, DREAMERS, eldercare environments, LGBTQ youth, or simply be kind to someone who needs you. The HERO lives on this […]

  JOURNAL ENTRY Oct 15: Anxiety and excitement can very much feel the same. There is so much to be excited about, my third book was finished earlier this year, and I’m in the middle of recording this CD. For an artist, these fruits are beautiful gifts. My life today, in […]

Doing our Best to do WHAT’s BEST


challenging times
Woke up this morning with so much on my mind as we all do. Our projects, our health, the state of the world, our country. Will our healthcare be taken away, will our own rights as women, as LGBTQ, as Dreamers, as warriors of Hope and Love – slowly be […]

What’s on Your Mind?



empathy
I know that I say over and over “choose Love over fear.” Those words, though our true saving grace, offer little comfort in the face of so many world wide apocalyptic events. This is NOT a Hopeless time. No, this IS our time of HOPE. The deplorable images on TV, YouTube, […]

Feeling Safe in Each Others Arms


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





meditation
Passage from Meditation 9-2-17 Much of the poet’s passages fall on deaf ears, though the mind and the soul receive its message.  Somehow, knowledge is passed — Transferred one to another to another. The common connection, living in the 93 percent of the brain that is commonly “believed” seemingly unused. […]

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 […]

Thus today, may we lessen judgement. Never give up On PEACE: Live the Possibility. Think Inclusively. We are all connected because we are […]

Divine Love
Two and a half years ago I had The Dream. My Grandfather came to me in what was only revealed as his face — but I really think it was God. No words were spoken, feeling only the most beautiful complete love I’d ever felt before, I felt absolute. Nothing […]

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 […]

law of attraction
What you are seeking is seeking you, so be CLEAR with your HEARTS desire because It already EXISTS in form. Begin expressing what you already have. CALL it from a place of GRATITUDE —not from a place of lack or need. RISE up to meet it. For example, I am […]

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 […]
