This moment is where you make a difference. In your life, in the lives you touch, in the things you do. This moment is where the world begins to change. With one word, one thought, one smile, one nod of understanding. It starts within each of us.
As my fingers touch the keys they take on a life of their own. I need do very little except relax into it. This journey is one that needs to be shared. Doesn’t matter that I am an introvert. Doesn’t matter that I have no clue if what I write will matter to you. Doesn’t matter that I wonder how I’ll find the time. This is what I need to do.
So, who am I? The stats: Married to the rock that is my soul mate. Together we managed to raise two very cool kids that are now very cool adults. One a Healthcare IT Manager and the other a musician/ nature awareness school Teacher. My day job is a labor of love with a lot of hard work thrown in: I am the Executive Director of Unity North Atlanta where I oversee the operations of a vibrant, active, love-filled spiritual community. At Unity North, I co-lead of the Prayer Chaplain Ministry. No matter a person’s personal journey, we hold them in prayer knowing, always, that God lives and breathes as each of us. All we need do is tap into that Source. In the spare moments of my life, I am a writer. Writing is what soothes me, inspires me and helps me to clarify who I am.
Who am I, really? In my teens I began to ask the question “How can we be so naive to think that we are IT?” This question started me on a life long journey of learning to understand my place in the Universe. Today my question is a bit harder to answer: “If this Source that created everything is pure Perfection and we, as humans, are made from that Source (and, therefore, also pure Perfection), how can evil even exist?”
My quest for understanding is what drives me to create a world that is a reflection of the Source that lives and breathes, acts and thinks as me. My desire is to create a world as it should be – a place of peace. What I have learned in my decades on this planet is as simple as it is complex: I am but a cell in the body of the Infinite. On this plane, however, I am simply learning to live in this moment. Always changing, always questioning, always learning. Simple, yet complex.
