The Gift

One becomes of advanced age and begins to ask the simple but profound questions he should have asked in his youth but was far too distracted with hormones, activities and entertainments. Questions such as what really matters in life? Who am I? Where am I? What is the best possible use of my time and talents? How will I best serve others or should I serve myself and spare others some crumbs from my time and effort? I remember Deepak Chopra stating in the incomparable "Seven Spiritual Laws of… Continue

"April Is The Cruelest Month" = Devoid Of Spirituality (Explanation)

I'm sure many of us have heard that 'April is the cruelest month'. It's from T.S Eliot's poem "The Waste Land". Before I began teaching English Literature, that phrase always puzzled me. How could April be cruel?

Here's what Eliot means in that poem: He's saying that those who are spiritually devoid think that April's buds and blossoms and renewal are cruel because they remind one of a lovely soul.…

You Are The World - from Dr. Wayne Dyer

You Are the World - by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Ask yourself what you have to give away. Keeping in mind that your purpose is always about giving, loving, and serving, the question of what you will be able to give away as your purposeful mission becomes paramount. It doesn’t take any extra special intelligence to know this simple truth: You cannot give away what you don’t have. If you don’t have…

Honoring the Gifts of the Day before Bed

Offerings of the Day: Finding Gifts In All

We can reframe bad days by spending some time before going to bed each night to review the gifts we received that day.

When we have good days, we often find ourselves going over the details later, enjoying them a second and third time as we feel the joy of our good fortune. When we have bad days, we may find ourselves poring over the details of our misfortunes.… Continue

Jesus And George Break Bread

I have a dream: Jesus dines alone with a man named George. George is uncharacteristically humble. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall?

"George, this is Jesus. Remain quiet and I will take just a moment of your time now. We will dine at your house tonight. Please set a table for two. I will provide the food and drink. You are the decider - I am the provider."

At a suitably small table for two, appropriately set for a visiting head of state, the very first time, Jesus… Continue

Eckhart Tolle on the Beauty of Today

The perfect present? The Present.

Most of us would agree that anniversaries are cause for celebration. And yet some people feel ambivalent about anniversaries, birthdays and the like. Some even feel a little guilty when they think about the past, though the memories may be pleasant. "Am I avoiding the present moment?" they ask. They belong to a growing number of people who are "practicing presence"—endeavoring to let go of an excessive and… Continue

You Are Magic

This is where I am today.

At the end of this week we (my hubby and I) will be heading to New Mexico one last time (at least one last time as a resident there) to close on our old home and get the rest of our stuff, a few things we left to stage the home. wow, this is closure. I feel I have already done this energetically over the past couple of years, but we now have to make this last trip and I am feeling those final ripples of saying good-bye…

Look at the beautiful cherry blossoms in High Park. The park is filled with these blossoms right now and tourists from all over the world are here to see them. The Sakura cherry blossom is a sacred tree in Japan. Japanese tourists (and Japanese people who live in this city) are loving our blossoms this year.

Now, regarding the birdhouse near the trees. It's been in High Park for many years and it's…

Trust Your Inner Self - by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Trust Your Inner Self - by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

I consider Ralph Waldo Emerson one of my greatest teachers even though he passed on well over a century ago. Emerson was the founder of the Transcendental movement in America; his philosophy emphasized the all-pervading spirit of the universe, wherein God existed everywhere. To understand the greatness of Emerson, it is important to remember that during his…

Serving The Wrong Master

No man can properly serve two masters. How many active military would continue service to the Money Power if they knew what that power was doing to their country? Are these military personnel not all in violation of their sacred oath? They might be if the Oath of Allegiance was not a fraud to begin with. If the military knew who they serve and their Oath is a fraud, how many would continue their dishonorable behavior? Who will tell them the truth?

"And the men who loan money to… Continue

The Lifesaving Hobby

Note: This was written over seven years ago before there was any 9/11 - Al Qaeda truth in the marketplace.

No one is paying me to save lives. In fact I am spending my own money in the attempt. It just seems like the right thing to do.

Force Decisions We Can Live By! Just another bumper sticker, or is it the New Age philosophy? It began as an overwhelming drive to express the lessons I have learned and the warnings I observe, in simple terms, easily understood by others. I… Continue

Baby Boomer Redemption

Note: This was written four years ago with no knowledge of Mayan prophecy concerning 12/21/2012.

The generation that was going to change the world has become a bad joke. But they have hardly begun their work. Keep an eye on them.

OK. The American Baby Boomers dropped the anti - establishment ball. So certain in the late sixties and seventies that corporate money grubbing was at the root of nearly every social evil, many bought the myth that things could better be changed… Continue
