Your Personal Emergency Kit

While I was tramping through the Kenyan bush some years ago with my new wife, our safari guide gave our small group specific instructions as to what to do if we encountered certain dangerous animals. "If an elephant charges our crew, everyone has to scatter--they won't bother to chase a lone person." In my head I mapped out what direction I would run and what I would do if my wife tried to team up with me. (Scold Laura nicely, and then run the other way.) "If a rhinoceros charges you, run in a zigzag pattern to confuse them--their eyesight…

How to Change Your Life in 11 Days

There was a time when I thought that who I was was what I did. I thought that money made me happy and that life was a destination at station 401K. After I broke my neck and had to learn how to walk and talk and chew gum all over again, I realized that the Holy Grail of life was not something I could buy, sell or hold, contrary to whatever Wall Street or Madison Avenue would have me believe. I now know that the Holy Grail is something I feel, and I call it love. I also learned that…

How to Learn to Love Yourself, Rather Than Abandon Yourself

When I was a young woman, I believed that life was about getting - getting love, approval, recognition, validation, money, success... getting what I thought I wanted. But if today were my last day of this planet, getting something would be the last thing on my mind. I would be focused on sharing love. That's it. That's all. That's everything. There is a major confusion in our culture about love. Somehow, most people have come to believe it is getting love from another or others that feels the best, and they spend much energy trying to get love. They try…

How All Things Spring from Our Thinking

My life works best when my thought is straight. I think every average Joe understands this simple truth. But today I'd like to take this idea several steps further and consider that all existence, all action, all things spring from our thinking. Think negative thoughts; we get negative results. One of my deepest beliefs in life is that the good I do equals the good I receive. So I do know that all that I do in life starts first and evolves from thought, from my thinking. When things start to go bad, I've learned to not try to change…

Apply the Golden Rule To Yourself

Most of us have grown up with some version of the Golden Rule that includes doing unto others as you would have them do to you and loving your neighbor as yourself. Most of us think of the rule as encouraging us to be kinder to others. Such thinking is completely backward. We already do love our neighbors as ourselves. The problem is that most of us have never learned to love ourselves and to see ourselves as a source of love. We can never really accept or love anyone else until we learn to accept and love ourselves. Even…
