    Live and Let Live

    “When nobody around you seems to measure up, it’s time to check your yardstick”. I read this quote recently and it encouraged me to be honest with myself. Being overcritical and irritable is common to many of us, it certainly is to me, especially if I’m not mindful. We may pass through the day with […]

    Weather

    Can we influence the weather? I think we can. Consider this…… A compliment is like verbal sunshine. A smile can warm a chilly morning. A hug can blow the clouds away. An anonymous act of kindness is always a breath of fresh air. You can make it a beautiful day. Happy Now…

    Ego

    When we live in the “Ego ” and we seek to impose our will on the world, we can’t help but see the world as a hostile place. But when we surrender to the flow of life, we discover the universe is not out to get us, instead the world is what it is and […]

    Addiction, “The Unspoken Dis-Ease”.

    Addiction is the “Unspoken Dis-ease”. Addiction is an epidemic spreading throughout our country. We see it every day, yet too often we are afraid to admit it and or discuss it, so it continues to reek social havoc.

    Prayer

    Many of us have prayed, “God, get me out of THIS and I promise I’ll never do THAT again.”  Yet if we are honest, we know that these prayers are mostly insincere, self-serving and usually without the result we wanted. You don’t have to pray to “God” if you don’t believe in God, instead simply pray […]

    Zzzzzzzz

    Good Morning, How was last night’s sleep? For me a peaceful night’s sleep is a wonderful reward for day lived well. I try to make sleep a nightly reward for my body, my mind and my spirit. I try to make “bedtime” a comfortable time to wind down and relax my mind from a day of […]

We can rationalize our actions so that we don’t have to face the unpleasant fact that we are powerless over the flow of life. Our creative ability to cope, provides us with excuses and then relief from facing reality. I believe […]
