I blame myself

May 22, 2022 | COMMENTS

Spiritual Fitness for Liberation

May 21, 2022 | COMMENTS
How many times have I had the opportunity to choose Freedom and instead chosen to revisit the past? Millions? It’s impossible to guestimate. What I do know is that I make at least 10,000 choices a day. Every day, all day, every 5... Read More

Peace Without Exceptions

May 20, 2022 | COMMENTS
When it feels like there’s no way, Spirit can still make a way.   When it feels like only failure is possible, Spirit can still succeed. When it feels like all is lost, Spirit can show us what’s valuable. In... Read More

Feelings, Emotions and God

May 19, 2022 | COMMENTS
Yesterday I traveled from our family home in Maine back to my home in Vermont.  It’s a long drive - 7 hrs - more intense because I'm by myself and do all the driving, and definitely more intense with the fur... Read More

We’re Healing the Pain

May 18, 2022 | COMMENTS
It’s hard to imagine that we have the ability to heal all of our own pain and suffering.  In fact, we have to ask ourselves why we wouldn’t wish to heal all the pain, but many people don’t actually wish... Read More

Available For My Good

May 17, 2022 | COMMENTS

Living A Life of True Prosperity

May 16, 2022 | COMMENTS
For a long time, I thought living in alignment with spiritual principle would be so hard I couldn’t do it.  I had the belief that if I lived in alignment with principle I’d have to give up everything that gave... Read More

From a tiny flame to a bonfire

May 15, 2022 | COMMENTS
The ends is in the means.  If we’d like to get where we’d like to go, we have to be sure that our desire matches our means to get there or otherwise we’re merely in fantasy. I know A LOT... Read More

Peace Is More Important

Letting the Love In!

March 31, 2022 | COMMENTS
Before I even got Bodhi, my puppy, I knew I would like to have a kitty companion for her.  It’s taken me eight months to find the kitten that would be perfect for us.  I’ll tell you the story another... Read More

Stop Going It Alone

March 30, 2022 | COMMENTS
It’s so tempting to think thoughts like, “I’m on my own.  I have to do it all for myself.  There’s no one who can really help me.  I have to figure this all out.  It’s all on me.” And on... Read More

Trust In Spirit Brings Peace

March 29, 2022 | COMMENTS
In every single, blessed moment we’re placing our trust and faith in something - and either it’s Spirit/Love or it’s our ego opinions and judgments.  And that’s how it is all day long, every day.   When we place our... Read More

I’m an optimistic complainer

March 20, 2022 | COMMENTS
I admit it.  I used to be a chronic complainer.   I’ve made a MASSIVE shift in my thinking over the years, for which I’m tremendously grateful because it’s taken me from a grumpy and agitated state of mind to... Read More

I Acted Like A Jerk

March 19, 2022 | COMMENTS

Bless the Bully

I am willing to end all war

March 13, 2022 | COMMENTS
On my spiritual path I’ve experienced something you probably have too.  I’ve had times when I suddenly had a realization of the truth that I’ve believed I’ve known all along. Here’s an example:  For years and years I heard and... Read More

Eye On The Prize

March 12, 2022 | COMMENTS
I have found it’s VERY helpful to keep my eye on the prize - which is Peace, and that’s what comes with spiritual awakening. Many times people have told me they have no idea what spiritual awakening means.  It’s not... 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

The Lover Always Feels Beloved

Changing Our Mindset

January 17, 2022 | COMMENTS
Yesterday’s Self-Love workshop was great.  People asked if I’d have another one, and I think I may well see if I can do that next month.  Self-Love, Part 2. This topic is SO important because without really getting to Self-Love... Read More

Peaceful Choices

January 15, 2022 | COMMENTS
I remember it so clearly.  Of course I do.  It happened millions of times.   There were millions of times I had a clear opportunity to turn away from self-destructive and self-punishing behavior, but I didn’t do it.  It just... Read More

Peace Is Our Natural State

January 11, 2022 | COMMENTS
The more I walk this path of truly living A Course in Miracles, the more I can see the clear choice in my mind.  Sometimes the choice is to be upset or to be at Peace.  I can choose to be... Read More

Choosing Peace Instead of Covid

You probably realize this as well as I do - people are freaking out all over the place because of Covid spreading so rapidly right now.  We’re also all worn down from all of it which I don’t need to... Read More

Releasing the Patterns of Pain

December 20, 2021 | COMMENTS
