One Mind, One Earth

There is an old Spike Milligan poem which tells the tale of a little girl who upon learning that the world is round and is spinning, calls out to her dad: “it makes me feel quite giddy.” I like that poem because it reminds me that we are all very small, and that as generation [Read More...]

Dying to Believe

A number of years ago when I was still a young minister, a congregant told me the story of why she hated Easter. “When I was a child, my house went into mourning and I could never understand why all the other kids were so happy, and sharing presents. “My mother told us in graphic [Read More...]

Sacrifice Nothing

In the opening sequence of the 1960s TV show Star Trek the voice over said: “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” It takes a certain kind of determined mind to take on such a task. Some might consider it arrogance, but when we think about anything great that has ever been accomplished [Read More...]

Living With Instability

It has been said that the only constant is change. That’s a paradox, but quite true. We humans are linear time beings. We tend to fret about what happened in the past and worry about what is to occur in the future. But in truth we have only the present since the past is gone [Read More...]

What Scares the Snot Out of You?

I really wish I could take credit for the title, but I have to attribute it to my friend and colleague, Edwene Gaines. Edwene has to be one of the most authentic persons I know on planet earth. Those of you who know her are already nodding your head. One of the many things this [Read More...]

We Can’t Whine Our Way to Happiness

We’ve heard it before. Most if not all of us have done it before. What is “it”? It’s whining for what we want. Fill in the blank anyway you choose: I wanna new job. I wanna new boyfriend. I wanna a new/young/slimmer body. Whine, whine, whine! (Be sure to look pathetic while you’re whining – [Read More...]

Look to Ukraine

For the last 10 days now the world’s eyes have been on Ukraine. And in the eye of that storm has been a spiritual community with a special heart that is gifting the world with a new vision. Barbara Leger leads the Temenos Center for Self-Realization, and during this tense period this Centre for Spiritual [Read More...]

Sharing Consciousness One Day at a Time

The other day when I was in Atlanta, I was approached by a panhandler and as always, I paused for thought. These are moments when we get to consider what we believe, and how we wish to apply it in our lives. Some people approach the situation from the standpoint of personal responsibility – as [Read More...]

“The Glitter and the Glue”

I came upon a delightful book in my travels this week. The author is Kelly Corrigan (http://kellycorrigan.com) and her new work is entitled, Glitter and Glue. The book is based on a comment her mother once made. It seems in their family her father was the glitter and her mother was the glue. I knew [Read More...]

Being Successful Isn’t Hard

It’s funny how “stuff” from growing up can still be echoing in our minds far into adulthood. I was taught by my father that we’d never have enough money and that there would always be more bills than money. Sometimes our family couldn’t get ends to meet, but at least if the ends waved at [Read More...]
