You: Stable and Strong

January 17, 2018

You: Stable and Strong

“They are tossed to drunken heights, only to be brought down into a
sludge of headachy despair; their arrogance gives way to humiliation
at the next curve of the switchback.” —Patrick White

When Free Will and Destiny Collide

April 30, 2016

free will and destiny collideI haven’t wanted to write in a very long time. This year has been, bar none, the most challenging of all.

What’s creating your reality?

May 12, 2015

You—or rather your thoughts—create your reality. I’m not speaking in the “woo woo” way. Things happen (life events, experiences, etc.). They have no inherent nature, meaning they’re not inherently good, bad, scary, worrisome, or wonderful. Different people interpret the same events differently. Their predominant thought patterns and beliefs dictate the nature of their perceptions.

For example, a circus clown walks down the street with 20 bundles of cotton candy. Happiness, irritation, fear, desire, temptation, and laughter are each as likely to be directed at her. The…

Where does it hurt?

March 25, 2013

An angel disguised as a child care center worker taught me how to meditate when I was five-years-old. She gave me access to an invulnerable source of power and a place of refuge that has sustained me through the darkest times.

How to heal sadness and painful feelings

March 1, 2013

Painful feelings are a beacon guiding you…

The Time I Proved the Law of Attraction in the Worst Way

April 10, 2012

Many years ago, I was in a terrible situation. I had to travel to a foreign country to handle a legal/family issue that I was very unhappy about. I knew about the trip many months in advance and that gave me plenty of time to worry, dread and project all of my fears and negative thinking into the future.

As the trip grew nearer, I felt a heavy blanket of foreboding…
