Between Rock and Hard Place

  Between a rock and a hard place is where I find myself.  Mom went onto hospital again, was found to have a number of issues that her Internist should have spotted, but missed.  Now, they were going to discharge her this weekend, but besides her having pain, I have the flu, and they wanted […]

Spiritual Awakening, Process

  Everyone wants to be enlightened, aware, and hopefully very wise, have right priorities, hope so anyway.  Often that road to really getting it, really understanding priorities, what really matters, a true union with the Creator, with the Divine, Holy, Sacred and those principles of life day to day do not come easily.  Often it […]

False Idols

False idols, easy to turn people, earth itself, nature, even people into idols, but the natural is not going to save you or me from our own stupidity, our inclination to do evil things, think even thoughts.  Meditation exists because there is the need to discipline the unruly selfish part of humanity.  Does that mean […]

What Happened To…?

  In ancient times, in Greece and Rome open debate, fierce debate was a welcome thing, part of education, this notion of debate, of back and forth, fiercely, not violently, but passionately, also with reasoning.  Education from elementary to higher education is supposed to be a place where there is an open exchange, and debate, […]

Emotional Responses in Healing the Hidden Self

  I have been thinking a lot about emotions with everything going on around us and healing.  Healing is a great way to bring about changes in  emotional responses as regards for example  anger, resentment or other negative responses that might be triggered. Our emotions react to things we harbor in our mind, such as anger, fear, resentment, […]

My Biggest Regret

As I look back at my life, there are so many Paris’s.  There are things God had put in my heart to accomplish and each time I started, took a step and then fear of failing, of not being good enough, which comes from childhood stuff that I have discussed in other posts, would come […]

Rest, But Don’t…

I have not been feeling all that great these past few days, a bit of a cold.  I had the plan to record some meditation stuff for the store and one or two other things.  The fibromalgia and this cold are setting me back, so how do I react?  I could push through doing what […]

For the Fallen

For the Fallen.  As I look around at how much disrespect there is for those in law enforcement, for those who give so much to keep society safe, it breaks my heart and from that came this poem and thus this video.

The Underminers

How many of you had the experience growing up of being told in various ways to limit yourselves from being all you can be? The movie ìs Incredible is a wonderful metaphor for this. In this movie, the superheroes ñ the people with extraordinary powers ñ are restricted from using their powers. When I was […]

Why All The Chaos?

Whatever faith tradition one has, there is the clear understanding that there is a dark and a light force, both exist and there are moments in history and time that they collide in major ways.  It happens in our own lives when we face  tough moment etc.. or when we are tempted to ill gain etc.., fast buck, these […]
