Forgiveness Is More Than A Pardon

July 25, 2022 | COMMENTS
I don’t like the word forgiveness.  It’s not that I dislike it either, but the word just doesn’t sound like what it is.  Forgiveness is the total release of the judgments we have about a situation.  It’s the release of... Read More

Forgiveness and Salvation

March 1, 2022 | COMMENTS
One of the things I love about A Course in Miracles is it’s clarity and simplicity.  It says the same things over and over again, a thousand different ways in order to help us hear it just once.  That’s a beautiful testimony... Read More

When People Treat Us Poorly

January 13, 2022 | COMMENTS

Let’s Stop Frightening Ourselves

January 12, 2022 | COMMENTS

Studying ACIM wasn’t my thing

November 21, 2021 | COMMENTS

I’m healing the habit of finding fault

November 14, 2021 | COMMENTS
Right now, there’s more than 12 hours of dark each and every day.  I don’t like it, but I’ll survive it.   We’re 39 days until the solstice.  That’s the darkest day of the year, and then the sun starts... Read More

It took me decades to get this!

November 7, 2021 | COMMENTS
I’d like to begin by saying, I’ve never regretted for 1 second the energy I’ve put into letting go of the past, and relieving myself of guilt, blame, shame, regret and resentment.  I’ve learned we can ALL have miraculous results... Read More

Let the Storm Pass

September 18, 2021 | COMMENTS
Here in North America, autumn is about to begin. I love fall, but I love all the other seasons too. I really don't have a super strong preference anymore. All 4 seasons are so great. I grew up in Ann... Read More

Moving Onward and Upward

September 17, 2021 | COMMENTS

New View

Punishment VS Correction

September 7, 2021 | COMMENTS
It’s been so much on my mind, the choice between punishment and correction and I know it’s because of living with my puppy, Bodhi. She’s a very good girl, amazingly so.  I can really tell by the choices she makes... Read More

Redemption

August 28, 2021 | COMMENTS

Rising Above Conflict

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
