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

#GLOBAL LEADERSHIP AND GIVING “I want a humanity that is a family. Where acceptance and tolerance are words no longer used because we live in awe and celebration of each other.” Where giving replaces greed, where compassion replaces aggression and where love replaces fear.

Humanity
“A world we believe in asks us to participate in designing our future by DESIRE. Desire to lift each other up — express Divine Love and expose our secret — that we’re really just butterflies anyway, waiting to EMERGE from our chrysalis.” — From my third book, THE GRACE OF […]

BY DESIRE…

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” –  Martin Luther King, Jr. You may feel alone, but you’re not. We hear you, we see you, we will all continue to […]

YOU ARE NOT ALONE




PEACE 1
We have to remain steadfast now – roots in love, more than ever. ‪#‎SaturdayMorning‬ ‪#‎ActWithPeace‬ “I did my best to face rational and irrational fears, living at times moment to moment. I had new choices to make, new thoughts to create, and eventually, needed to replace negative beliefs and habits with new […]

The NEW Destiny


Poetry of Love
Here are three poems from HERO. “EARTH SPEAKS”…because there is always a message. “TWO CLOUDS” …because although everything is energy and transforming, we miss so much by not living in the present. And, “TO BE LOVED” …because we often undervalue the simple words.

Live Simply Love Great



Fearless 2
Barbara Marx Hubbard said there are those among us — “The kind of human that is sensitive to what is emergent”. Also resonating with me this week is a line from A Course In Miracles “Brother, come and let me look on you. Your Loveliness reflects my own.” I feel in […]

This morning while editing a collection of older poems I plan to get out this month, I came across this introduction I wrote in 2002 for one of the chapbooks “Cadbury Castle”. Still seems timely. ‪#‎HappySunday‬‪#‎LoveEachOther‬ ‪#‎BecauseWeCan‬ Here it is: “I know as we move forward in this world, we are leaping blindly […]

Acceptance Over Tolerance


As Love rises, I see in my minds eye that one day, ALL Humanity will gather — in a bar, yoga studio, in somebody’s livingroom. A galactic tribe, if you will — not just in peace, but in celebration of ALL hearts.

Celebration of Hearts



Merry Christmas, happy what ever tradition you happen to celebrate. The only thing that matters is that we acknowledge the rise of Love. My contribution to “cookie making” today. Flourless peanut butter cookies. 1 cup sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, a few chocolate chips and […]

Merry…









homeless 2
Early one evening, I took exit 3 as usual. Descending off the highway ramp to Route 5, my eye caught the shape of a man. A man clothed in a beige coat with a cardboard sign, displaying the words “please help”. He was really not a man at all, but […]

Look everywhere for kindness – in the eyes of a stranger, to the words of our global brothers and sisters, through the laughter of our children, the nudge from our pets, in the sounds of nature. Keep looking – seek it as you would your favorite flower – acknowledge it, […]

“Possibility speaks to us all the time. It speaks through you and me, and trees, and rivers, and mountains and through birds, and dogs and babies.” –From RISING HEART, Beat and Song

Possibility Speaks Through All Mediums




Collective-self-worth 1
Being is defined as “the quality or state of having existence, something that actually exists, a living thing”. So, our global self value, our collective worthiness, rises when you and I see each other’s natural state of being – alive. Then, each one of us, being the vessel, brings collective […]
