Are you “too” independent?

Do you ever feel like getting someone to help you with a project, or seeking counsel when you’re stuck in some way, is a sign of weakness? To some people, if they can’t figure out a problem by themselves they think they have failed. This type of person seems to believe that they should be [Read More...]

Oh God, What to call it?

My favorite name for Divinity is “The Thing Itself.” The phrase reminds me that I don’t know exactly what it is, other than that it is a great and wonderful mystery I attempt to point to with words such as wisdom, love, power, energy, omnipresence, beauty, allness, creative intelligence, or mind, among other terms. Or, [Read More...]

It Just Makes Me Want to Scream – Part Two: The spirituality of being human

Did you do any screaming last week? (If you don’t understand why I’d ask that question, go back and read last week’s blog first!) I hope you understood last week that I wasn’t suggesting we run around like a bunch of raving maniacs, screaming our heads off at the world. However, we can sometimes experience [Read More...]

What Can I Do?

“How will you serve the world? What do they need that you can provide? The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.” ~Jim Carrey I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately when it appears that we, in the USA, stand on the brink of going back into war.  When [Read More...]

Does It Make You Want to Scream? – Part One

Do you ever have situations in your life when you feel like you’ve done everything you can to produce the desired outcome, but the whole thing just falls apart…or blows up…or implodes?!? I believe we call that “frustration” (among other things!). It can often be accompanied by screaming and fist pounding. Doesn’t sound very “spiritual,” [Read More...]

Approaching Confrontation With Integrity

Are you someone who shuts down at the first sign of disagreement? I’m a recovering people pleaser. Growing up in my family I chose the role of mediator, reconciliator and all-around peacemaker. I made it my mission in life to make sure no one was upset, since upset often led to an outburst none of [Read More...]

Great Expectations

Have you ever suffered disappointment at some time in your life? I suppose that’s a rhetorical question since the answer is, “Well, duh!” We all experience disappointments. Most of my disillusionments have come from when I fall short of reaching my own goals or expectations for myself, not when others fail to live up to [Read More...]

Whose Potential Are You Trying to Realize?

Where in your life are you beating your head against the wall? Did you notice I assumed you are “beating your head against the wall?” I can nearly guarantee, with very few exceptions, that you are doing something currently that feels exactly that way. You may feel stuck in a relationship, dissatisfied with your living [Read More...]

GREAT MOTHER GOD

GREAT MOTHER GOD! Rev. Dr. Nirvana Reginald Gayle As we approach Mother’s Day, it’s imperative that we honor and celebrate the Cosmic Mother of all creation. The genesis out of which all motherhood is based. The cosmology of the feminine face of God. The original grand Goddess. I have always said that there was Mother [Read More...]

What’s In Your Path?

This past Sunday I spoke on the topic of “Clearing Our Path.” The very concept that our paths need to be cleared implies that there is something to clear. We had a lively discussion about what that might be, as well as what our part is in acknowledging blockages. If there is something that appears [Read More...]
