Be A Lighthouse

May 12, 2023 | COMMENTS
I’m noticing this week that people seem to be more volatile and more easily upset.  Not everyone of course, but more than usual.  Or so it seems to me. There are things happening in the news, so many, that have... Read More

They Blamed Me

May 11, 2023 | COMMENTS
Bodies are interesting, but the mind is amazing, extraordinary, miraculous!   When Donald Trump was elected president, I was in Thailand.  And it was interesting to me that shortly after the time he was announced as the winner of the... Read More

Intention to Awaken

May 10, 2023 | COMMENTS
When I look back at the major decisions in my life, I can see the most life-changing ones had nothing to do with the circumstances of my life.  Around the age of twenty-six, I began to meditate.  Even though I... Read More

The Body As Mighty Companion

May 7, 2023 | COMMENTS

What’s It For?

May 5, 2023 | COMMENTS

Allowing Happiness

May 3, 2023 | COMMENTS

Path of More Freedom

May 2, 2023 | COMMENTS
Let’s just be honest.  Let’s stop telling ourselves that we tried our best, when we really didn’t.  I remember once a friend of mine said, “I love my brother unconditionally, but if he doesn’t stop … (whatever it was), I... Read More

We Asked For Healing

May 1, 2023 | COMMENTS

A Recipe for Unhappiness?

April 27, 2023 | COMMENTS
The beautiful thing about prayer is it gets the mind to focus on what it is we’d like rather than what we don’t want and can’t stand.  That shift of focus is so helpful to us. For instance, we may... Read More

Words As Weapons

April 26, 2023 | COMMENTS
This week it’s been in the news that two well known news anchors both got fired from their jobs, and the appearance is that it’s because of their opinions and judgments.  It’s a big deal.   We seem to have... Read More

It’s The Law!

April 25, 2023 | COMMENTS

Happy Monday!   I’ve learned that it’s a life-changer to make the decision at the beginning of the year regarding what my year's about.  Of course, for many years, I wasn't clear what I’d like it to be about, and... Read More
Finding A Direct Path

Finding A Direct Path

January 22, 2023 | COMMENTS
Yesterday, I was recording an episode of my A Course in Miracles Podcast and the subject was Body Beliefs.  It’s so interesting to me how our willingness to let the false beliefs go opens our awareness to what’s Real and what’s not.... Read More

Being Our True Selves

January 21, 2023 | COMMENTS
I’m no rocket scientist, but it seems to me that getting the lift-off seems to be the most arduous part. Just getting the darn thing off the ground is an amazing achievement.  Our willingness is our lift off. If we're... Read More
