It is Within Each of Us

“Each man must sooner or later learn to stand alone with his God; nothing else avails. Nothing else will ever make you master your own destiny.” Emilie Cady, "Lessons in Truth"  “He [Jesus] knew, as no other man had, that what God has done God can do, that what was true of Him must be potentially …

Shall We Dance?

In her book, "Prayer and Meditation, A Passport into Paradise", Ugie Kirkpatrick, speaks about prayer as a place of grace. "Prayer brings that relief that is so greatly needed in order for us to live." A place where "God's grace meets us". I love thinking of meditation as a way to bring me to God's …

The Music of Your Morning

Today your life may look anything but harmonic, but, internally, where it matters most, there is pure, sweet music. There is perfection coming from the sound within. Where it matters most. As you opened your eyes this morning, where did your thoughts turn? To the day ahead and the many things left unresolved from yesterday? …

A Single Cell

I have had several discussions of late about the word 'God'.  Interestingly enough, but not really surprising, is how it strikes the chord it strikes in some people.  Many people struggle with the reality of God.  If it's not tangible, it's not real. Those that doubt feel justified in their belief that God is not …

Night Watch

I am grateful, lately, for dear, sweet friends that have reminded me of this. When I wake in the hours just before dawn, I now welcome …

Peaceful Stay

First day of staycation.  Enjoying the beauty of my backyard and quietly ignoring the invasive ivy that needs pushing back. There's always tomorrow or the next day for that. Today I will simply sit. And write. Writing is never work. Writing truly is a reprieve from the daily work of daily operations. My work is …

Looking through Spirit’s Eyes

The deeper I drift into this world where Spirit lives, the more I find myself stopping mid-sentence. My two worlds are becoming one - as it was meant to be, I am sure. It is unnerving, however, as I catch myself beginning to speak words that are unkind or judgmental. It's as if I am, …

Grace

Don't be afraid. As you take step after step forward, you are not alone. You are never alone. Grace walks this path with you. Indeed, and without doubt, Grace is the path, Grace is you. Gently place your foot upon the ground and know that you are truly One with all that is. From the …

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 …

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 …
