Your Inner Guidance System & The Puzzle of Life

When I was homeless and struggling with everything from self-esteem to survival, I ignored my intuition and the inspiration it offered. I couldn't believe that some part of me was connected to a wiser source and was trying to guide me. Because I have free will, I could ignore the internal signals. And as long as I did, I suffered. What I learned is that everyone has an internal guidance system. We can get quiet, tune in, and feel our way through life. The more we listen and obey the inner callings, the better life is for each of us.…

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…

Love Forgive Listen Trust

After another loud, red-faced argument with my husband, I retreated to my corner to mentally reassert my rightness and curse under my breath. Our angry words hung in the air like trapped dust. We’d had too many of these arguments lately, and I hated how I felt. Like a shrew, the kind of woman who makes a scene in public and you watch, shaking your head and thinking, How could she do that? I hated too the inevitable aftermath: hours, days, of silence, polite avoiding of each other in the hallway, sleeping separately, and the only words spoken questions about food…

School of HP: Listening to Those Who Can Help

While walking to work from the parking garage, I opened the door to see a little bird. The bird was desperately trying to fly outside and was hitting the windows as it tried one after another to go through. I opened the door and said, "Here, little birdie, here's the way". To my dismay, no matter how I tried, the bird wouldn't even look in my direction and kept on trying the windows. Finally, I propped the door open with a garbage can and left. As this was happening, I thought... what a wonderful metaphor for life. We keep on claiming…

Bouncing with Style: Thinking about Thoughts

I have been reading about thoughts lately. I know that sounds a bit weird, but when I was in court a few weeks ago I watched this grandmother talking to her grown grand-daughter about how thinking too much gets her in trouble. I remember my own mother telling me that in my teens. “Thinking is good,” she said to me, “but, thinking too much will get you in trouble.” I have also been quiet lately - talking less since my radio shows are pre-recorded for the summer months – and listening more. I listen for message from the universe, from…

Finding Clarity in Your Life

A life full of happiness and success can be yours. All you have to do is simply take a few moments each and every day to remember and to live by these words: "The greater your personal clarity, the greater your quality of life." If you aren't clear about who you are, and why you are here, it is going to be very tempting and very easy in today's fast-paced world for you to be perpetually off-balanced. Remember, it's easy to be busy, instead of being productive. It's easy to be hurried, and miss out on being happy. So to…
