Being In the Flow of Good

September 13, 2021 | COMMENTS

I was a grudge holder

September 5, 2021 | COMMENTS
I was a fierce and dedicated grudge holder.  It felt like my job.  It was a strong part of my false, ego identity.   I believed my grudges and grievances, if properly held and kept alive, would protect me from... Read More

Contact Lens Update

September 3, 2021 | COMMENTS

Nevertheless I persisted

September 1, 2021 | COMMENTS
One of the issues many people have is they receive divine inspiration about what they’re being guided to. Their intuition is strong and repetitive. If you’ve been watching the Netflix series MANIFEST, maybe you would label it a “calling.” This... Read More

Redemption

August 28, 2021 | COMMENTS

Rising Above Conflict

August 27, 2021 | COMMENTS

Turn the Other Cheek

August 25, 2021 | COMMENTS
We’ve all experienced having someone attack us in a way that seems completely unjustified. The temptation is to defend and/or retaliate. What if instead of either of those choices were to see the attack as a cry for Love? What... Read More

Giving UP Resistance

August 23, 2021 | COMMENTS
I know I say this often, but one of the things I’m most grateful for is my ability to say “yes" and not hesitate. It wasn’t always the way I operated, for a LONG time I let resistance and reluctance... Read More

Leaving Betrayal Behind

August 6, 2021 | COMMENTS
For whatever reason, my personality was a real grudge holder, and I’m so glad I don’t invest in that like I used to. Phew! What a relief. Perhaps it’s because I lost so much of my precious time and energy... Read More

Making a NEW Decision

August 4, 2021 | COMMENTS

Holding My Seat

April 14, 2021 | COMMENTS

Guilt and Projection

April 13, 2021 | COMMENTS
Not guilty. That’s God’s verdict.  We’re not guilty, and yet, we’re identified with being the guilty ones.  Part of our collective identity is that we’re all sinners and there’s no escaping our sinful nature. Which came first:  The chicken or... Read More

Searching for Answered Prayer

Projection, Perception, Deception

April 10, 2021 | COMMENTS
A Course in Miracles teaches us that our perception is our projection.   Another way to say it is “we made the whole thing up.” In my experience, people, and by people I mean all of us, including myself, are fooled... Read More
