Are You Self-ish or Self-full?

I don’t think I know anyone who revels in being called selfish. I certainly don’t. Sadly, as soon as we begin to exercise our own desires, often around two or three years old, we find adults telling us we can’t have what we want. Worse yet, we may be...

Alone In a Crowd

Have you noticed how many people have serious issues? Like my grandfather used to say, “Be reasonable. Do it my way!” We both know we have a few issues ourselves, though perhaps not as many as we might have had in the past. But no matter how spiritually savvy...

Acceptance Is Not Approval

Does everyone act the way you want them to? In the past, people have been ultimately disappointed in their efforts to make me into something I’m not. When I founded my first spiritual community in 1993, I was warned by some of the higher ups at the time to...

Appreciating Our Way To Joy

Here’s a question a subscriber asked this week: How do we create what we want and hold it in mind and also allow Spirit or whatever to bring us a good we may not see or allow because we are focused on our picture? The question came after reading...

What Will You Make of 2021?

I can’t think of any New Year Eve that has been more anticipated as starting anew, and that includes the Millennium celebrations. We lost far too many people for totally senseless reasons in 2020. Our lives were turned upside down, with almost all of us experiencing loss or change...

Why Do We Compare Ourselves To Others?

Do you still compare yourself to others? I’d like to say I don’t … not ever … but I’d be lying. I don’t like to lie. In thinking about this topic, it seems to me when most of us do our internal comparison studies they almost always surround something...

Are You an Open Book?

How much of your life do you share with others? You might answer that question the same way I did when it came up recently: It depends! Fair warning: This is going to be one of my blogs that sets out a premise or issue without resolution. The thought...

Thanks, Gratitude, and Appreciation

If you’re in the U.S. you may have celebrated Thanksgiving this past Thursday. It’s been quite a year considering it was about a year ago when we first started hearing about COVID-19. One of the best ways to change our lives is to give thanks, show gratitude, and express...

Yes, This Is a Rant

Have you wondered why so many people around the world are rebelling against masks and lockdowns? Why are large groups of people having what boils down to a collective tantrum? The science is clear: Wearing masks helps stop or slow the spread of disease. So why all the rioting,...

He Said, She Said, They Said, OH MY!

Forgive me if I’ve been playing the same tune on different instruments over the past few months. It seems to me like I keep writing about the same thing: Too much information, little of it reliable, and how this is stressing the crap out of so many of us....
