    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 […]

    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 […]

    Anticipation

    Anticipation is often a dangerous and slippery slope. We wear ourselves out unnecessarily when we spend our energy anticipating the future rather than living in the present.

    Throwing Stones

    “He that is without sin amongst you, let him cast the first stone.” — Jesus Christ It is so easy for me to focus on the failings of others and yet miss my own. So many of us are attracted to gossip and character assassination. Why do so many people seem to “feel good” by […]

    When the Buddha Speaks…..

    “When a man shows compassion and kindness to all living creatures, only then is he noble.” — Buddha I love the Buddha. His wisdom is based on simplicity. We all need each other. We all benefit when we help, support and encourage each other with love and kindness. This concept extends beyond human beings. Our […]

    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 […]

    Pathways

    Different disciplines and teachers offer different pathways to healing and wellness in our lives. For example, exercise can strengthen us, mindfulness can center us, meditation can enlighten us and nutrition can fuel us. But whatever path we choose, or whichever teacher we listen to, the end goal is the same, a sense of peace, harmony […]

    “Saying Grace”

    Today is a beautiful day to be grateful for all that we have now. How do you express your gratitude for all that you have right now? I “say grace”. For me, “saying grace” is a metaphor for a personal expression of gratitude. Because I have practiced it over the years, it gets easier and easier […]
