As individuals our stories don’t always make sense and we’re often left feeling alone in our experiences- but if we can bring our stories together we are better equipped to make sense of our lives.
I have every reason to be content. I live in one of the most affluent and privileged cultures in the history of civilization. I enjoy the freedom to learn, speak, and even sing whatever my heart desires. I have daily access to clean water, wholesome food, and shelter from the elements. I am employed – and I even have the option to change careers at any time I wish. Friends, I am living the dream. I really have every reason to feel happy, expectant, and fulfilled; yet, I sometimes feel a disquieting emptiness and a deeper longing for significance. You… Read more.
Now it’s time for us to discover our interdependence, to discover “a higher WE” and the beauty of how we can love each other, and to create together and be unforgettable in each other’s lives!
As a widow who has lost the majority of my family, I realize that life is the most important gift. We must use it wisely as life leaves oftentimes without warning taking with it all of the possibilities. People are next. Cherish every moment and be present with every person who feels special to you in some way and know that all people are special. There is only one race – the human race, and we are created equal. We all suffer regardless of age, race, educational background or income level. Life oftentimes is a struggle but we can choose… Read more.
Over the past few years, every one of us has been through some form of adversity. In fact, many of us have been hit by more than one serious, disruptive challenge. In this “perfect storm”, everything that we have come to trust and believe about ourselves and our lives has come under some form of attack. Whether it is an illness, loss of job, erosion of wealth, divorce, or a death in the family, it seems as though the path on our journey has gotten a little more difficult. As we stand here looking into the future, looking for answers,… Read more.
Most of us wear a kind of mask, a persona that hides our deepest thoughts and feelings, and presents a polished, controlled face to the world. Much of the time, we interact mask-to-mask with other people. There’s a place for that. But remember times when someone saw through your mask to the real you, the person back behind your eyes. If you’re like me, those times were both unnerving and wonderful. Even though it’s scary, everyone longs to be seen, to be known. Besides the ways that seeing the person behind the eyes benefits others, it’s good for you. And… Read more.
You are the connection between possibility and expression. You are the miracle, the means through which thoughts and intentions are transformed into things and experiences. By your living of it you make life happen. With your love you make life beautiful. In your every urge is great power. For you can act and achieve and fulfill, and give meaning to every moment. Give generously of yourself, never holding back, never being afraid that you’re not good enough. Within you is goodness itself, along with the desire to express and to spread that goodness in your own special way. Listen to… Read more.
Whatever your circumstances, never underestimate your ability to impact others.
I want humanity to know oneness. It sounds complicated at first, but it is simple and will change your life forever. It did for me. Oneness is more than a concept. It’s an experience and a way of living. In every culture throughout time there have been saints, mystics, sages, shamans and prophets who have come to the same conclusion: all things in this world are deeply interconnected and ultimately are only diverse expressions of the one original source energy. This was the essential experience and conviction of most of the worlds’ religious founding leaders. They called the Oneness of… Read more.
The most important gift is connection with others. Cherish your relationships.
SIMPLICITY Enjoy and embrace simplicity. No, that doesn’t mean poverty. Nor is that the polar opposite of wealth. Living simply is experiencing and appreciating the small things in life that are taken for granted by those constantly looking outside of themselves for happiness. Real happiness will never be found in a pill, television, car, or iPod. This materialistic view will result in a never-ending pursuit of “things” that never quite fill the hole trying to be filled. In fact, it only grows with the more “things” you acquire. Instead, the key to happiness is found by satisfying the needs that… Read more.
Be a part of something bigger than yourself.
Tell the real truth, even (or especially) where it scares us. And when we do so with someone trustworthy, we can connect, honestly, intimately. Soul to Soul.

When someone gets the sense that he or she exists for you as a person, then it’s much easier to take care of the matter at hand, whatever it is.
Life is about making passionate connections, validating others and allowing them to live dreams that touch other people’s lives too!
If you watch your mind, you will see that it goes into the past or future all day long. It especially loves to go into the future and when it really gets activated, it moves from a whole different place. It will convince you that that you can’t do it right, or you can’t do it at all, or something bad is going to happen, and the thoughts go on and on. These thoughts are just not true because we don’t know what is going to happen. All we have is this present moment, but you can begin to see… Read more.
Sustain heartfelt connections to grow personally as you empower others in their lives.
Take care of yourself. Continue to persevere: do not allow doubt to creep across your goals. Always make sure to take some time every day to rest. That time should be just for you to keep stress away. If you don’t take really good care of yourself, you may not succeed as highly as you could have. Continue looking at the night sky and wonder about all the many new things yet to be discovered. The answer is clear. There is nothing more certain in my mind than we are all members of the family of Man. We all exist… Read more.
Recognize that we are all connected. There is a Oneness of all Life, so leave your thoughts of exceptionality and separation behind and embrace that Life. A daily practice of meditation, prayer work, affirmations and reading will grow, over time, from daily practice to what you practice daily. That is a whole new way of life. Be aware for synchronicity and follow your guidance. What you call your intuition is the voice of God – Guidance-On-Demand. The Source of all your experience is at the very core of your being. Spirit is in me and I am in Spirit and… Read more.
