RELAX INTO BEING

I was fortunate to make a new friend today! It happened as a result of accepting an invitation to visit a new town that I received yesterday…and the whole situation turned into such a beautiful gift, that I’m glad I accepted. I’m glad I was open. I’m glad I didn’t put too much on the - Read More -

PARTICIPATE IN YOUR OWN UNFOLDING

In 25 magical minutes, Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith (Agape International Center in the City of Angels) describes the four stages of spiritual unfoldment: 1. Victimhood — where you are not touching reality, but rather you’re touching your thoughts about reality 2. Manifestation of visioning — where you do not describe what you see, you see - Read More -

ONE MORE THING

When traveling, I often feel some anxiety before the flight. There’s packing, being on time for the car service, arriving at the airport with enough time to check in and go through security to be on time for the flight (and early enough to get bin space!). So many things must be done to make - Read More -

STAY PRESENT

Sometimes I catch myself getting future focused. Writing, editing, and publishing a book means I have a to-do list that never seems to end. I’m driven to create and share. And it requires that I think ahead a lot. However, a friend reminded me to “stay present ;)” in a note recently and it really - Read More -

RACIAL EQUALITY

Racial inequality is so difficult for me to understand. From my perspective, we all come from the same Source. Just as the red rose and pink rose are both beautiful, it baffles me that some might passionately argue that one is somehow better (or more beautiful) than the other. The senseless violence that continues, even today, - Read More -

GIVING THANKS

Sometimes I feel that I’m on the road more than I am at home! It is through these travels that I have been fortunate to make new friends and gain new perspectives.

IMPORTANT WORK

I believe there is no work more important than helping others. My passion for helping children in need is due in large part to the fact that they are unable to help themselves. (Plus I simply love children!) They are so often the victims of poor parental decisions. Children fight a very difficult battle, and - Read More -

RESPONSIBILITY

This morning, in beautiful Maui, I read an awesome quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Nothing in the world can bother you as much as your own mind, I tell you. In fact, others seem to be bothering you, but it is not others, it is your own mind. I believe this to be true. - Read More -

VIRTUE

While reading Lao-tzu on this beautiful morning in Chicago, two passages about virtue (goodness) caught my eye and begged to be shared ;) PRACTICING VIRTUE To practice virtue is to selflessly offer assistance to others, giving without limitation one’s time, abilities, and possessions in service, whenever and wherever needed, without prejudice concerning the identity of those - Read More -
