    My simplified perspective on criticism is this: If someone is criticizing me as an insult or to hurt me personally, then that person simply isn’t worth my spiritual energy. If on the other hand someone is criticizing me sincerely and constructively, I want to look at their words and actions as help, and nothing more. […]

    At What Cost?

    What are you willing to sacrifice in pursuit of your dream? It’s far too easy to keep focused on the idea that reaching our goals will determine if we’re successful or not. Does the end justify the means? Questions: Are we walking all over other people as we strive to be “successful”? Are we keeping our […]

    I Love a Cloudy Day

    Do you have your head in the clouds? Spring is trying so hard to return to our lives. How can I tell? It’s the first week of April and for the first time since last fall I found myself sitting outside in shorts and and a light sweat shirt simply enjoying the cool air, bright […]

    Pedal on…..

    Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving, keep changing and keep adapting to everything in your path.

    If Nothing Changes….

    My father used to say, “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride them”. I don’t know where he heard those words of wisdom but I was reminded of them again today.. Today I interpret my father’ words as, “simply wishing things could be different is a waste time and spiritual energy”. Instead of complaining we […]

    A Great Gift for Any Day

    Looking for a gift to celebrate today with someone? There’s so much that we can give in life that has nothing to do with money or material goods.  It’s obviously very kind and considerate to give money and material stuff to people who need it, but material and financial needs are not as important as […]

    The Treadmill of Life

    Do you feel like your living life as if you were running on  a treadmill, lots of work without going anywhere? The treadmill is safe.  The speed and elevation are programable and recordable. The view is controllable. You can watch TV, read a magazine, listen to music, look out a window or stare at a […]

    We All Matter

    I matter. You matter. We matter. One of the things that keeps many people from contributing their “gifts” to the world is a feeling of powerlessness, a feeling that whatever they do is somehow worthless and that it doesn’t have any sort of effect on anyone else. Just because we can’t see an obvious result […]
