It All Works

The same Spirit that resides in me, resides in you. Yet it lives there differently. It sees the world through your 'eyes', not mine. The lesson to be taught and learned is, therefore, done so differently. The lesson I am learning is being given to me as I am ready to receive it. The same is …

Practice, Practice, Practice

The second most important aspect of a spiritual life is learning to be still. Many of us spend lifetimes learning how to do this. We live in a noisy world and that noisy world fills the mind. Lifetimes spent trying to sort it all out. Finding the quiet within takes practice. Lots and lots of …

Coming Together

Yesterday, on the way to a fundraiser, traffic came to a sudden stop less than a mile from our home.  We couldn't immediately see what was going on as there was a truck in front of us.  Then, off to the left, there was an SUV crashed onto the curb with a woman slumped over …

Stepping Off

Precipice? The word that I have been using to describe where I am right now? Where my work is? The country is? The planet? Standing on this precipice my stomach tightens and my mind locks.  Deep within me something monumental is trying to emerge. It is life changing and I keep wondering if I'm ready.  I …

Breath Collaboration

Take a breath. Come back to center.  It's all okay. This is my reminder when the shock (and it's always a shock) of something in my carefully planned world moves out of alignment and shows me that not everything is controllable. That gut-tightening feeling of "Good Lord, I did NOT see that coming!" The good thing, …

The Final Word

There's something about a mother. When she spoke, you listened. It may have appeared that you were ignoring her, but you knew better - and so did she. She fully expected to be ignored and then she'd inwardly smile when six months later her suggestion became your brilliant idea. With a simple look, you knew where you stood with her. That look is …

What the World Needs Now

The other day as I briefly stepped into the front office at work to check my mailbox, two of my extraordinary coworkers were deep in conversation about current events. Typically not a conversation I like to be drawn into - I like my little peaceful world, thank you very much.  However... One of them said to …

Change the Pattern

We talk about choices all the time. We choose the people in our lives, the words we say, what we listen to...how we react. Much of what we choose is because we have been conditioned to do so - whether it pleases us or not. Years of repeating the same pattern and yet we question why …

Depth of Emotion

Photo: Unity North Atlanta Labyrinth Is it the changing moon or a new phase of my spirituality that is causing this deep well of emotion in me? For days now I have been filled with tears.  They brim over for the silliest of reasons.  What are these changes that are occurring?  Do you feel it, …
