This was originally published with the title Stop A War about the time President Bush invaded Iraq. The title has proven pointless, but the issues raised are even more relevant today. Only the title has been changed.
A nation at war with itself cannot stand. He speaks of American justice and points us to evil while he cuts deals with nuclear armed devils. A friend of Al Qaeda, he is the Commander-In-Chief of the most powerful military force on planet earth and the man we call… Continue

The cosmic formula of creation is gloriously simple:
Attention + Intention = Manifestation

One of the most troubling dream events, and startling physical side-effects
of REM, is paralysis. Large muscle groups often become paralyzed during a
dream, presumably to prevent injury to the dreamer in case the dreamer's

troubling if the dreamer becomes aware of his body in a paralyzed state
without being aware of the fact that the mind is still in a dream… Continue

Money can be lost, gained, or spent in dreaming. Dreams about money are often really about power, control, and competency. Consequently, the larger perspective of who is interacting with you around money and what your role in the transaction is are important features of the dream.

Clearing Your Mind Continue
Allowing Spirit in
Set aside time each day to unclutter and settle your mind. Whether through yoga, dance, walking or journaling.
After a full day out in the world, stories, words, images, and songs from any number of sources continue to play in our heads hours after we encounter them. Even as we lie in bed, in the quiet dark, our minds continue noisily processing all the input…

It's amazing that this article came across my desk today. As I continue to work with the principal (and birthright) of my own autonomy, I am reminded that healthy parents raise children to become healthy adults - free and whole in and of themselves, despite the difficulty of letting them go at the appropriate… Continue

I just wanted to throw this topic out because I sense that I am not the only one to be in this position.....
I willingly (after YEARS of contemplation) walked away from a 15 year marriage, about 2 years ago. The marriage was not bad, but I wanted a happiness that I knew I would never experience with my ex-husband.
