Mon, 02/18/2019 - 1:45pm
Whenever I travel, I take a book along with me. This year, I chose the book/journal Write It on Your Heart: Random Acts of Kindness Journal.

Got Kindness?  Studies show a compassionate lifestyle does more for you than bring a smile to your face. You get what you give.

It’s one thing to read the words or even to hold them as a...

Tue, 12/04/2018 - 10:14am
Affirmation: I let go of any concern and allow good to unfold in my life. This article is not a recitation about a new door that opened in my life or what a joy it is to recount the tremendous success I found on the other side.

Turn Me to Gold: Andrew Harvey and the Poetry of Kabir

Tue, 11/27/2018 - 8:34am
Excerpted from his book Turn Me to Gold: 108 Poems of Kabir. Kabir is far more than a poet; he is a universal initiatory field, as expansive as Rumi, and, as embodied, radical and ferocious as Jesus. He is the voice of the evolutionary truth and its piercing love and we have never needed to hear him more or be more ready to hear him. For five years I have worked with my whole mind, heart, and...

Honoring Memories

Thu, 11/01/2018 - 9:54am
Affirmation: We are now and forevermore one in the love of God. Memories are as unique as we are. They are the cumulative echo of our life experiences.

If we couldn’t recall the who, what, where, when, and why of our everyday lives, we would not be able to...
