Look for the Helpers

 What can we say about the events in Boston?  So much pain and so much suffering, in Boston and all over the world.  Our hearts ache in compassion for those impacted and those working to help, in Boston and all over the globe.   In the last 72 hours, there have been bombings in our country and others, earthquakes with scores missing or dead, other natural disasters, other personal losses and so much pain and confusion.    In times such as this, I  think it’s human to want to retaliate, to add aggression to an already confused and painful situation, to want to strike out in our own pain...

Quote o the Day

Fear doesn’t frighten me as much as it used to. I know it’s from clinging and I know it will pass. I can tell myself, “I’m frightened now because even though I know what’s true, I have forgotten it right now. I know the possibility of remembering exists.” That possibility, that conviction, gives me a lot of hope in the middle of the biggest fright. – Sylvia Boorstein Whatever may be scaring you today, we send you Big Light and hope.  Hang in there, you are smarter and more capable than you may think, and no doubt you are doing a better job than you think you are.  Be kind and gentle...

World Hunger Day Fast for Charity

Posted by on Oct 3, 2012 in Emotions, Happiness, Healing, Peace, prayers, Spirituality | 0 comments

Hello all! I know it’s been awhile!  Things are good here and I’ve been out living life instead of blogging about it.  More to come on a recent trip and much more. In the meantime, I wanted to update you on some things that are coming in October.  This time of year is traditionally about honoring the cycle of the seasons, pausing to reflect on our abundance and blessings, and preparing for winter.    To call attention to the ways in which many people on the planet are unable to take part in the abundance of harvest, UN World Hunger Day is held every October.    Also called World...

Ancient Paths, New Journeys

“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls…” ~~Jeremiah 6:16 Hello all  A friend and I just returned from Santa Fe, where we did some hiking, some writing and a lot of playing.  We are working on a book about Spirituality and Grief, and I cannot think of a better place to ponder such things than the desert. I snapped this picture near Skull Bridge, at the Continental Divide Trail (CDT)  near Abiquiu, New Mexico.  The Trail head is just over that bridge and heads south into the Rio...

You May Say I’m a Dreamer, But I’m Not The Only One…

Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you also refuse to hate him…                                   ~~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor…        ~~Anne Lamott Hello again!  I know, I know.   You don’t get a post for days on end and now two in one day.  How fortunate you are!  I just couldn’t let today pass without acknowledging Dr. Martin Luther King, so here it is.  There has been a great deal of recent media attention about Dr....

Happy Solstice and Merry Happy Everything!

Hello all 🙂  Happy Solstice!  This is probably the last post of 2011 and  on this Day of Light,  I wanted to say hello and thanks for another great year. I also want to acknowledge what a difficult time of year this is for many of us, all over the planet.  So in this powerful time when we celebrate all of what it means that Light comes into the world,  perhaps a gentle reminder to  breathe and let yourself rest a bit.  Breathe and allow it to  replace that holiday tension with a holy relaxation and sacred calm.   This is the time of year when we are reminded to replace the fear and darkness...
