Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation. –Alan Cohen   Hello beautiful souls!  I wanted to do some updates about the goings on around here, especially about the retreats.  Many of you are asking about them, so this seems like the best way to do it. First, yes– all of the spots for the New Mexico retreats are full, at least for this year.  We will probably do a larger, longer group retreat next year in Abiquiu, NM, with the option...

 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...

Let the beauty we love be what we do.   ~~Rumi I love this picture, taken when the Christ the Redeemer statue was under construction.   One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, it was built in Rio di Janiero in the 1920’s and is huge, overlooking the whole city.  It captures how I so often feel on the path and I look at it from time to time to remind me of what it symbolizes to me in my...

Forgiveness and Priorities, Life and Death

Posted by on Sep 1, 2011 in Grief, Happiness, Loss and Letting Go, Peace, Spirituality | 3 comments

True forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time—just like it does for you and me.        ~~Sara Paddison Hello all, blogger slacker returns 🙂 I’m at my parental units home in The Middle Of Nowhere, MO for a bit.  My mom is in hospice and is declining steadily so I’m here with her for the duration.  I’ve been up with her most of the night, just being with this experience, being with...
