How You Can Find Your Internal Compass

Listen for your own deep questions and follow them. Let them guide you the way a compass guides a lost traveler, marking true north when there are no maps... or when the maps you have no longer show the way to where you want to go. Listening like this is soul level listening. You have to be willing, or longing, or desperate enough to turn away from other people's answers. You have to turn toward your unknown self. To take time. Your question doesn't have to look like a question. It can be a fragment of conversation you overheard on…

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.

This is the constant renewal of compassion that reseeds the world. To live in a truthful way requires that we listen to…

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…

Breathe in the Brilliance of You

When I think of words of wisdom that I would like to leave to humanity, I am filled with humility. I envision my children’s faces and realize that my wisdom and my love is all that I will ultimately leave behind. So, with a deep, slow breath, I open to my highest self and reflect on what would be most important to express. Please, breathe with me while I begin. First and foremost, the highest service I can offer by sharing my wisdom is to compel deep listening to that still, small voice within. That is where the most timeless…
