The Gift of Our Existence

Words spoken and unspoken millions of times Actions taken countless times throughout the day Trying at each moment to explain 'Love' As if 'Love' is a concept that can stand on its own The tendency to take concepts that are the embodiment of our soul and our being and trying to explain them as if we can remove ourself from that which by its definition is from within. This is a flaw of Western Logic. The most extraordinary pursuit we as human beings may endeavor during our lives, is to become whole, that is to fully prepare for our spiritual…

Your Mission: Love Fully!

We live in the most technologically advanced times in our history, we can send people to the moon, invent iPhones, yet our world seems to be in a state of chaos. These are indeed intense times: war, terrorism, uncertainty, as well as technological advancements, and material wealth. Yet we are also plagued with great "soul poverty" and a famine of inner fulfillment. Often losing sight of what is real, and truly important. My message is simple: LOVE NOW! Growing up on 4 different continents, and seeing the reality that people from diverse walks of life live daily has deeply touched…

Struggling with Stress? It’s Time to Remember Who You Are

During stage three breast cancer treatment I was graced with two out of body experiences. I walked away with two reflections: one, how well did I love God, myself and those people around me? Two, how did I connect on a daily basis with my God-given talents and abilities and use them to inspire and bless those people around me? Align yourself with what you value most in this life. Did you forget what you value most in this life? Tune into what moves you to linger in a moment. Don't miss the opportunity for expansion and growth in the…

The Wisdom of 7 Decades

I'd share the deepest things I have learned in these seven decades. I would tell you that saying "I made a mistake" feels really awful, yet calling it a "learning experience" feels uplifting and growth-producing. I would suggest that "doing work" feels like drudgery, but "having a project" fires up enthusiasm. I would remind you to take control of your thinking, because if you "think" right, you will "do" right, and if you "do" right, you will "feel" right. And "feeling" right, or good about yourself, feels a lot better than feeling bad about yourself. Remember, you always have a…

We are Souls on a Human Journey 

If there were one important - or invaluable - message I could share with the world, it would be that we are souls on a human journey.  Our physical bodies, material possessions and thoughts rooted in fear all boast impermanence and superficiality. This human experience is merely a playground for our souls. A classroom, if you will. Life on earth is a chance to physically express ourselves, to grow our divinity amidst a variety of challenges. We are love. Our roots, our core, our very being is love and light energy. We are intertwined, interconnected to everyone and everything. Such…

Choose Sacred, Not Scared

Right now is a life and death battle between sacred and scared. The scale swings sometimes wildly. Fear is what comes and scares us. They came to you at some time in the past when you needed that protective warning and now they have overstayed their welcome and you haven't booted them out. The love/fear scale is to test our awareness. More love, less fear; more fear, less love. Love is the great dispeller of fear. Love is the great bringer of sacred. Have you noticed that when you go take care of someone else, when you listen to someone…

Love is The Solution To Any Problem

Love is a weapon - and I prefer to kill with kindness and torment with tenderness. When we do this, our natural tendencies towards aggression are utilized in creative ways through work, sports, games and hobbies, and not through destructive behavior. A child's brain wave pattern up to the age of six is like that of a hypnotized individual. So your messages can stay with them for a lifetime. If they are mottos to die by, and the child does not make a conscious effort to eliminate and abandon them, it does lead to their illness and early death. A…

3 Keys to Peace

I would share a message for my daughter.... If I don't wake tomorrow, I want to tell you that no matter what seems to be going on around you right now... Everything is alright. Really. I have learned, by living, teaching, coaching, listening, practicing and most of all, by loving, that there are three keys that make it possible to be at peace no matter what is going on... 1. Everything you ever suffer from is just a thought. 2. You always have choice and therefore you always have the power. 3. Love is what you are, not something that…

Share Your Unconditional Love

The secret to creating a life that you love is all in your head. It's your imagination and will power. You can have anything you imagine if you also have the determination and focus to see it into reality. My mother taught me that the world is clay and we are the sculptors that get to shape our destiny. I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of quality time with her before she passed a few months ago. I interviewed her during her last weeks. One of the questions I asked was: What do you regret most about not…

Embrace The Infinite Power of Love

I believe what the world needs, and what we most need, is love. Love is what brings us closer to an awareness of God and all that is good in the world. Love is what allows us to transform potential into reality. Love is what satisfies the craving within us that can only be fulfilled in this way. If we were to attempt to dissect any perceived problem in the world, it could be solved through love. But, what is love? Do we actually understand it, or have we been taught that attachment and expectation equate to love? And what…

Remembering We Are The Children of Love

You and Life are One. The living, breathing Source of all Life, that most call God, Allah, Great Spirit, etc., is the same Love from which we are born. We mistake our identities as individuals when we forget who we are and where we come from. That light and life lives in each of us, yet is often covered over by the mind. However, even your mind and your thoughts are that Love, yet packaged in the experience of disconnection. How about you? Are you experiencing disconnection from your true self? If you are, here is one easy way to…

7 Lessons To Live Fully

1. Life is far too short to hold grudges. I've seen too many people lose precious time that could have been used to become closer to family members, all because of a petty disagreement. You should either come to a resolution, or simply agree to disagree. No grudge is worth holding on to. 2. It is also important to remember that in life, there are two main questions you must ask yourself: Were you able to bring joy to others? And, were you able to find joy yourself? If you can positively answer those two questions, then you can deem…

Being Mindful in a Busy World

Remember to relax. Since meditation ultimately is relaxation, my one word of advice is: Relax. Let go. Release your grasping. Can we just surrender to life moment by moment? Surrender to what is instead of arguing that our point of view is the correct one? Remember to send loving-kindness to yourself and to the world. Once while on retreat, I had a vivid dream that Death was in my single bed with me. I struggled briefly to escape his clutches, realized it was useless, turned to face him, and knew that all I could do was love Death. He was…

4 Principles To Create a Magnificent Life

I made the most life-changing discovery of my life when I was 20 years old. I began to realize to fully grasp the fact that our thoughts and emotions are physical in the universe. I began to realize that time and time again, the thoughts and emotions that I was experiencing the most frequently were directly dictating how my life played out before me. When I made this realization, I had the "AH-HA" moment that I had complete control over how my life would transpire until I left this consciousness. It was one thing to understand this on an intellectual…
