Loving Purely Isn’t Always Easy

True love holds no expectations and awaits no change. It looks beyond all that appears so chaotic and disappointing, to find the underlying truth and beauty in all things, as they are.  I've practiced this way of loving compassionately, without attachment, for many years. It is what lifted me out of a deep depression 16… Continue reading Loving Purely Isn’t Always Easy

Decision-Making Skills

We make an infinite number of choices each day without even recognizing it. We do this easily, because with these unconscious choices, we perceive to know what it is "right and wrong". We respond with every bit of logical programming we've ever known. We choose eggs or cereal for breakfast, because we believe that they… Continue reading Decision-Making Skills

To Breathe from Source

There's a point in all universal BEingness, that I envision as the SOURCE of all life-force. In this sacred point of divine presence, all reSource can be found. This perfect point of Light births all and heals all.  When it's important for me to remember who I am, or to see clearly in a moment… Continue reading To Breathe from Source

Fatherly Figures and Expectations

I so admire the beautiful souls who have bright memories of their Dad. It amazes me that a true father can be warm, understanding, and supportive. I don't have a single memory of my father "nurturing" me. Dad was a complicated man. There were moments and spaces where he was in his joy, and then… Continue reading Fatherly Figures and Expectations

Giving Voice to Anger

What a complicated emotion Anger is. It's at the core of every passive-aggressive communication, and so many limiting traits, patterns, and beliefs. If we don't find a way to give it voice and express itself in a healthy way, it will always find a way to control our thoughts and behaviors. Until we face it… Continue reading Giving Voice to Anger

Love My Self, Love My Body

To be honest, my body is a bit creakier, crackier, and all-round slower, swollen, and stiff these last few weeks. I notice the difference because I have worked very hard to move towards healthy living, and BEing, over these last few years. The shift in consciousness has already been made. I don't (usually) align with… Continue reading Love My Self, Love My Body

Loving the ‘Pot Stirrers’

How does the denser matter of mind, emotion, and understanding ever come up for reinterpretation and re-evaluation without the blessed 'Pot Stirrers' of the world?? When we meet one, we have a tendency to draw back, in efforts to avoid going deep into our own ancient muck and insecurity. But, how freeing it is, once… Continue reading Loving the ‘Pot Stirrers’

These Wings Are Made for Soaring

Compared to the landscape of my entire life, this last year has been a bit super-charged. I like that. This is the moment I've been waiting for. You may ask "What is different, this year??"...and I can only respond "I AM". Something has shifted inside of me, to know that I am WORTHY of every… Continue reading These Wings Are Made for Soaring

The Whispers of “What If?”

The whispers of "What If?" are everywhere!! No matter how positive I strive to remain about the unseen and yet-to-be-determined realities, the whispers of an uncertain world still touch me. But as I am faced with one too many negative whispers of what 'could be' this morning, I am reminded that LIFE, and all of… Continue reading The Whispers of “What If?”

Emotional Candor

Are you feeling crabby, cranky, or downright cantankerous?? I hope not. But if you are, own it!! Claim your current emotional state of BEing as authentic and real. It, too, is a part of you. I awoke early this morning feeling quite on edge and grumpy. That's not a norm for me, and was in… Continue reading Emotional Candor
