    Consider these thoughts…

    Hmmmm… “What do you call an animal that never feels distress, anxiety, fear, or pain? Extinct.”—Daniel Gilbert “Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.”—Rabindranath Tagore “Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.”—Freud “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss wants, small minds discuss people.”– Laurence […]

    Today’s Weather Report

    Do you check the weather report before you leave your home each day?  Why?  Maybe, the weather forecast effects how you dress each morning or how you schedule your day’s activities. Does the weather influence your attitude? Can we influence the weather? I think we can. Consider these “weather conditions”….. A Stormy day…..Our outbursts of […]

    Slow Down

    I love to bike. I went for a long bike ride the other day, and it wasn’t until after about an hour and a half  I realized something was missing. Something very important was missing. I have a road bike and a mountain bike, that day I was riding the mountain bike along a trail.  The […]

    Prayer

    I think it’s safe to suggest that all of us have had some exposure to prayer. For me, prayer seemed like a responsibility or a chore as I grew up.  Maybe it’s was something that your parents made you do as part of going to church or temple. At least for me, prayer was highly […]

    Life is a journey. If we treat life as a journey we can experience a peaceful appreciation and acceptance for where the path takes us. Life is a journey filled with joy, sadness, laughter, friendship, love, disappointment and pain. Life is a journey. Live your life fully, one day at a time. Happy Now…

    Giving and Taking

    Are you a good giver? Are you a good taker? Give and take are opposite sides of the same coin. Without one, there can’t be the other. Generosity is a cycle. Are you a good giver and good taker? Love, kindness, compassion, and a simple smile are things that when given away, you end up […]

    Mountains

    I love to climb mountains. When we stand and look at a mountain, it looks awesome, majestic, and perhaps intimidating. To climb the mountain we need to select a route. Which approach will give us the best chance to reach the top? Which will provide a beautiful view? Is there risk? Which route is the […]

    How’s it Going?

    I called a friend of mine yesterday and asked a simple question, “how’s it going”? His answer was not so simple. He said, “I’m at the beach with a friend. I love the beach, especially on the weekdays.  It’s the first time I’v’e been here all summer.  The weather is amazing, the water is so […]

    Judgement Week

    A Spiritual Challenge for this week: What does your negative judgement or criticism of other people say about you? In our continuing effort to make our lives happier, more positive, less hostile, more calm, less confrontational and more peaceful we try to make or break habitual behavior. Each behavioral change begins with an awareness that […]

    Believe Your Feelings

    Have faith in your gut feeling. Sometimes you can’t believe what you see, you simply have to believe what you feel. By accepting and following your feelings, you unify your emotional, mental and physical states. When you try to fight or deny them, you divorce yourself from the reality of your most basic being. Faith […]
