Walking the Road to Creativity

With spring in the air, many of us are taking time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. And it may be that there is good reason to do just that. I came across a study recently that made me think about a common phrase we often hear in New Thought circles: pray and move [Read More...]

Ageless Mind or Aging Mind

  “The mind that dies every day to the memories of yesterday, to all the joys and sorrows of the past — such a mind is fresh, innocent, it has no age; and without that innocence, you will not find God.”  J. Krishnamurti   Is your mind getting old? Is it showing wear and tear [Read More...]

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...]

The metaphor works because there is so much change that takes place in everyone’s life that to call it a journey takes some of the pressure off. Lately, the journey metaphor is even being used in business circles where long, drawn out projects [Read More...]

Meditation: Becoming Compared to Being

There appears to be an ongoing opportunity to become more, or to evolve into a better version of yourself and to get somewhere in life. At the same time there appears to be an ever present opening to step back from any effort associated with becoming, evolving and arriving, and instead to rest in the [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...]
