Radical Generosity

“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” – The Dalai Lama I’ve always thought of myself as a kind person. But in my fourth decade of life, I learned what true kindness is. A brain surgeon had just asked me if I would give my daughter’s vital organs to strangers. Maya, 19, had been declared brain dead and doctors had signed her death certificate. They were preparing to remove the machines keeping her heart pumping and her lungs breathing. I was frozen with grief, paralyzed by anguish I thought I would never outlive. But I heard myself say… Read more.

“Can you believe in something simply because it matters to you? Then act on it to prove you really do.” These are my 10 quick tips for living an inspired life: 1. Set an Intention: Understand the power and importance of intention as the rudder to steer your life. 2. Maintain Integrity: Intention and integrity together form the key building block for manifestation.

En-courage Courage!

If there is one piece of advice I would offer you, it’s this: never – and I despise using absolute words like “never” – never stop encouraging yourself and others in the pursuit of worthy goals. This advice is inspired by the definition of the word encouragement, which is “to give hope and confidence to.” Can you imagine what this world would look like if we were constantly infusing others with hope and confidence? What would this world look like if EVERYONE was walking around with hope and confidence – despite the challenges they face in life? With successful strategies, always… Read more.

There is beauty in simplicity.

No Strangers in the Heart

I have been writing for forty-five years—poems, stories, journals, dreams, essays—and all of it can be reduced to this phrase: no strangers in the heart. This has led to a belief in our original nature, our endless compassion, our need to listen, and our need to stay awake. It is only through great love and great suffering that we are exhausted of our differences until our hearts are opened to realize that we are at heart the same. This is the constant renewal of compassion that reseeds the world. To live in a truthful way requires that we listen to… Read more.

Happiness based on what’s temporary and arbitrary is forever elusive, while happiness based on eternal truth is forever.

The #1 Way to Succeed: Choose to Create!

Create! When given a choice – and we always are – opt for creating. I love that we have free choice in this world AND choosing out of the realm of creating, to me, is the only place to choose from. Imagine a world where everyone is saying, in essence, “I can’t wait to see what I will create next.” That is the world I want to create and inspire others to live in with me. In a collective sense, that is the world I know is possible to be in and I deeply feel that we are moving full… Read more.

There is no greater force in nature than the power of a soul committed to evolving upward.

5 Ideas To Change How You See The World

1. All that really exists is the word YES. The universe is set up on a YES system, so whatever you choose to surround yourself with, you will continue to get more of. The universe just tracks all of your personal expressions and choices in life. There are no throw-away moments. Choose your words, actions and thoughts consciously. Choose your friends, partners and media influences wisely, because everything coming from us, and everything coming at us, profoundly affects our ability to be as intelligent and balanced as we want to be. 2. Change doesn’t happen with the snap of your… Read more.

For many years I was terrified of dying. Then one day I realized I was really afraid of living.

Struggling Financially? Start with Love

In my first Inspire Me Today post, I talked about love. When I was deciding what to write this time, I thought: What follows love as a top concern? The answer is money. Interestingly, the two are entwined. The key to financial abundance, just like everything else in life, is love. We must love ourselves in order to 1) feel worthy, 2) receive abundance, 3) maintain wealth, and 4) grow our financial resources. If there are parts of ourselves we don’t love, our subconscious mind will find all sorts of ways to create the financial difficulties we think we deserve. Thankfully, there are… Read more.
