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...]

The Spiritual Traveler

It’s a common theme to talk about spirituality as being a journey. 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...]

It’s All About Heart

The other day I caught myself thinking about a conflict I was having with another individual.  It wasn’t a serious conflict, but something that was causing my mind some dissonance. As I started to pay attention to the direction of my thought, I noticed that the more I concentrated on the conflict, the more the [Read More...]

The Value of Failure

When people wear the green in celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, perhaps they should consider whether the name of this favourite of holidays really should be Patrick. One could almost argue that it could equally be Palagius Day – the name of a relatively obscure Celtic ascetic who was stirring up [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...]
