What This Time Is For

Get Up, Stand Up!

June 12, 2020 | COMMENTS
Bob Marley sang, "Get up, stand up, for your rights!”  We all have a right to live freely, to love freely, to actively be creative freely.  And the ego thought system is a tyrannical system that oppresses each one of... Read More

Self Image

Turning Away From Darkness

December 7, 2019 | COMMENTS
Let’s face it if we’re labeling, blaming, attacking, and judging, we’re just not interested in healing. There’s no way for us to be interested in complaining and loving at the same time. We have to choose one or the other.... Read More

Forgiveness Relieves Suffering

November 13, 2019 | COMMENTS

My Own Worst Enemy

Life Purpose

October 11, 2019 | COMMENTS

Growing Through Joy!

Complaining Is A Habit We Can Quit

October 8, 2019 | COMMENTS
We’re all working on a single tapestry. It’s a tapestry of human life. Some of us are focused on weaving something exquisitely beautiful and may look like the life of someone like John McCain, who (whether you agree with his... Read More

Self-Defense is Attack

October 7, 2019 | COMMENTS
One mental habit that takes up a LOT of time and energy is defending ourselves. Here’s an example from an experience I witnessed years ago: Someone says: I wish there was coffee. I’d really love a cup right now. Defender:... Read More

Never Too Late

October 6, 2019 | COMMENTS
Do you avoid people who seem stuck in their stories? One thing that I see happens to a lot of spiritual students, myself included, is we develop aversions to people who are doing the same things we fear doing -... Read More

It’s Breakthrough Time!

Amazing But True!

September 12, 2019 | COMMENTS

Full Moon Freedom

Irritation

Love Investment

June 5, 2019 | COMMENTS
