Who Do You Think You Are?

Who Do You Think You Are?

I recently watched a Wayne Dyer program on PBS in which a woman described a near death experience she had. She talked about feeling surrounded by unconditional love while in a coma.  She went on to explain that before her near death experience, she’d always been a...
Meditation Retreat and an Annual Check-in With Yourself

The Ups and Downs of Meditation

I’ve meditated semi-regularly for years now, so I am familiar with the tricks my mind plays to try to get my attention. My mind yaks on and on about what I should be doing or planning or worrying about. It has conversations with people I’ve encountered...

Divine Discontent

In true discontent there is much to be learned.  I wanted to share with you this quote from Osho at www.osho.com as it relates to my last post.  The true master creates discontent in you…and such a discontent that nothing of this world can ever satisfy it. He...

Spring Cleaning for My Spirit

Spring Cleaning for My Spirit

I’ve spent a lot of time lately going through everything I own and letting go of as much as I can. Earlier this week, the Vietnam Veterans of America graciously picked up a rather large donation as a result of this letting-go process. It’s a difficult process, but certainly a powerful one.
