"What really does Compassion Mean."
What does Compassion real mean, do you know? Have you ever examined the word, "Compassion." It's what connects us to others as we try to understand their point of view, notice their suffering and become sensitive to what they truly need in a moment of difficulty. You must THINK compassion.
But do we really understand what "THEY" need. At this stage in my life I do know more about compassion than I did a few years ago. I heard the, spirit… Continue

Enjoy this entry from Dr. Wayne Dyer:
Success Secrets, by Dr. W. Dyer
One of my secrets for feeling successful and attracting bountiful abundance into my life has been an internal axiom that I use virtually every day of my life. It goes like this: Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change. This has always worked for me.
The truth of this little maxim is actually found in the field of… Continue

Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian or meat-eater, here is something to Celebrate.
As of Sunday, October 25... It is officially World "Go Vegan!" Week, and anyone can participate in this movement to honor animals and eco-sustainable farming. Simply commit to sharing at least 3 vegetarian meals this week with someone you love (could be you!). Or go for the whole week (this is really what it's all about...more info below).

There are many paths to one's destination in life. Sometimes the path we find ourselves on is not the one we would have chosen or planned for our journey. Despite that, the destination is still yours to have if you truly want it. Destinations are not always an actual physical location, for some it is a state of being or state of mind, such as the ideal… Continue

For a Buddhist in police work, the most important thing is to be constantly aware of ego. It is not your anger, not your revenge, not your judgment, no matter how personal the event. I was paid and trained to take spirit-bruising abuse. I endured things of which the majority of women in America will never even dream. For me it was not judgment, in the Western sense, but discernment. This kept me, and others, alive and healthy. This discernment allowed me to act skillfully in crisis. The law of… Continue

I viewed a Youtube video this morning in which Deepak Chopra sort of explained how information is organized into knowledge, which is organized into wisdom. Further, he explained the Age of Information is transforming into the Age of Knowledge right now, leaving us but one more step to global success and the security of humanity. Yet, no individual need wait for any age to gain wisdom, as history will confirm.
I visited Amazon dot com and discovered that of 245 reader reviews of Seven… Continue

The Joyful Flow: Good Vibrations
Feelings vibrate, just as all things in the universe do, at a particular frequency. This is why people and places that inspire and cultivate positive feelings have what we call good vibrations.
Good vibrations inspire health, happiness, and optimism. When we are tuned in to good vibrations, our bodies heal, our hearts open, and our minds shift toward the light. We see new possibilities and feel… Continue

Empathy in Action, An Experiment in Gratitude
Sometimes we forget to take the time to recognize the richness that defines our lives. This may be because many of the messages we encounter as we go about our affairs prompt us to think about what we don’t have rather than all the abundance we do enjoy. Consequently, our gratitude exists in perpetual conflict with our desire for more, whether we crave time, convenience, wealth, or… Continue

Shifting into Gratitude: The Question of Worthiness
We all know what it’s like to finally get something we want, only to find ourselves feeling as if we don’t deserve it. Whether it’s a car, a new job, or a date with someone wonderful, we suddenly feel as if we are not up to it. Something in us wants to reject this gift from the universe, perhaps because it requires that we think of ourselves in a new way or makes us question why we should… Continue

I’m a pretty funny girl, with an off-the-cuff sort of humor, relaxed and quick witted. When I worked as an RN, the staff and I often used humor to deal with difficult, flesh and blood, situations when there was an event or situation that was just too much to emote in any other way; we chose to laugh. Laughter brought us closer together when we couldn’t deal with the reality of the human condition. I’m all for it. I hold myself personally culpable for laughing irreverently behind the scenes. It… Continue

Oh wait...this is supposed to be an inspiring blog. Oh well! Today is another day closer to the end of my life but that doesn't mean I have to ponder my eventual doom, does it?
Lately, every time I look in the mirror I am met with the reminder that my body is in constant transition from young to old. What is the reminder you ask? Well, my curious midlifer, I'll tell ya! It's the unbelievable explosion of gray hair in my 5 o'clock shadow and on my… Continue

indifference is the root of all evil.
Symptoms of decay are bound to be the result. Here we have the rule
indicating the usual course of history. But this rule is not an inescapable law.
He who understands it is in position to avoid its effects by dint of unremitting
perseverance and caution.
Water over fire: the image of the condition
In AFTER COMPLETION.
Thus the superior man
Takes thought of misfortune
And arms himself… Continue

I recently read a great post by fellow blogger LWesty. She made this comment:
"Why is it that when we finally start to feel like ourselves again that we have to classify this as a crisis?"
I love it! This is precisely why I started "My Midlife Manifesto." Gents... this isn't a time of crisis but rather a time of coolness. Maybe we set aside our most important individual dreams in our late 20s and 30s because this is when we work… Continue

It took less than three years to go from concept to a highly educated humanity. A mastermind alliance was created by the progressive community at Intent.com with the intent of educating all hearing people to the practice of Deepak Chopra's "Seven Spiritual Laws of Success". The idea to use microcassettes translated into every language and dialect, made universal education affordable without the construction of a single building or schoolhouse. Of course where schoolhouses existed, they were… Continue

Possibly the most important book of the 20th Century, Deepak Chopra's Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is the unofficial handbook of the Aquarian Age. When the rest of the world knows this, the New Age transition is complete. I have bookmarked Deepak's Vow page in order to check progress, to see when the vow goes viral. (At the time of writing this, Deepak had set an intent to find one million people who would take his vow of non violence.) I wonder how long it would take to find 100 million who… Continue

I don't have much to blog about tonight. (See last night's post)
I actually do. But I am numb. I hurt. When I get like this, I throw up walls and isolate myself.
My heart actually aches.
I will be better tomorrow.
I feel I need to let this hurt out tonight. I need to let it out of my body. I need to let it flow with my tears.
The numbness is overwhelming.
I feel like I am having an out of body experience.
When the sun… Continue

Do you turn off your computer at Night?
It is one of the easiet ways to significantly lower your carbon footprint.
If everyone merely turned off their computer when not in use, particularly over-night, we could lower greenhouse emissions significantly.

As healers, teachers and fellow lighworkers on the path, many of us have or do experience the need to clean our energy field on a regular basis. Even taking a shower or a (sea) salt bath can be an easy and excellent energy field cleaner. There are also fine practices, like certain fun and easy QiGong movements, that can effectively clear your own energy field after working with or on another person. These are also good daily practices for empaths and… Continue
