Affirming Our Good

Do you use affirmations? Or, do you understand what they are and how they work? The use of affirmations – short, meaningful, positive statements to focus our minds on a goal or desire – is taught widely. Louise Hay, the well-known New Thought minister and healing-focus writer, made affirmations an everyday word in 1984 when [Read More…]

Getting Everything We Want

Can we have everything we want? I’ve often said that we can have everything we want, but we just can’t have it all at the same time. That seemed logical until recently. Turns out I’ve wrong all along. Mike Dooley of tut.com says the correct answer is, “Absolutely not!” He gives us “[three] areas in [Read More…]

Hurry Up and Wait

What do you do when you can’t do anything about an uncomfortable situation? At the moment I am sitting in an airport terminal without electricity and that includes air conditioning. In addition, the airline’s computer systems have gone down in three major cities, thereby causing a stoppage of all flights in the majority of their [Read More…]

Where Do You Draw the Line?

Do you like surprises? Your answer probably depends on what the surprise would be. I was recently someone’s “surprise” and she was not pleased at all! When the weather permits I read my spiritual materials and have my morning meditation outside. That was the case last week. I had just finished my meditation when I opened [Read More…]

Being For Something

Are you against rape, child abuse and racism? I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that you are. None of these three issues in society today, or the many more you might think of, are anything we want to see more of. Ernest Holmes taught us that our words have an impact on our present and [Read More…]

Making Mother Smile

I used to frequent a very special beach on the Jersey Shore every year. It’s the only place like it in the area. While peaceful during the week, the weekends are full of crowds, many of who are not there for the beauty and uniqueness of this shoreline. A friend of mine taught me to [Read More…]

Why? Just WHY?!?”

Have you ever heard the expression, “Mind your own beeswax,” or used it yourself? I was an inquisitive child. My grandma Esther would use that phrase on me quite liberally when I was being too nosey about things that she thought didn’t concern me. The phrase is simply a nicer way to tell someone to [Read More…]

Relentless Positive Action

Have you ever heard the term “relentless positive action.” Positive action I get. I have been practicing living a more forward moving, positively enforced life for over two decades. I just published a book that deals with this, I’ve taught it in classes and congregations and work with clients doing this. But “relentless?” Our oldest [Read More…]

Choose the Stream

We have all seen televangelists or motivational speakers. Some of them seem to have the same smile on their face constantly. I find that kind of perennial “happy go lucky” or “everything is just wonderful all the time” attitude incredibly unbelievable. No one is happy all the time. When we admit that the only constant [Read More…]

Give It Up

Are you a quitter? Do you give up easily? Actually, that might not be a bad thing! Think about these statements: “I give up!” “Oh for heaven’s sake:  give – it – up!” “And now, give it up for …” “I gave it up and I feel so much better.” Do you see how many [Read More…]
