ONCE UPON A LIFETIME

To my spiritual family… There is no closing door that can refuse Life nothing that can staunch Its movement. It has forever been a river whose origin is Divine and it flows inexorably back to that Ocean. Once upon a lifetime I believed I could hold each moment as an exquisite jewel, that the Universe was no…

Who’s Your Boss?

Back in the early 2000s, I began to experience a symptom I now know as air hunger. I should say, re-experienced, because I’d had the same problem when I was in my early 20s. “It’s just nerves,” the doctor said. “Relax and it will go away.” And indeed within a year it was a distant…

Where is the Balance in Moving?!

Where is the Balance in Moving?! The height of the boxes almost cover the windows. Newspapers swallow up the dinning room table. “Where is this, where is that?” The family yells. Every time I turn a corner dust bunnies the size of tennis balls are lying in wait to pounce on me. This chaotic picture…

What Choice is There?

I am very full — mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We have come to the end of our spiritual living conference and I am filled with gratitude, excitement, appreciation and wonder.
