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...]

Expecting to Fly

Spring is one of those great times of year when we start to see the little ones of life stretch their wings and fly. If you’ve ever watched a robin build a nest, you know that the amount of energy expended by both the adult male and female is enormous. In the early days, it’s [Read More...]

What are you for?

In the days when I was building my Centre I noticed there was something that occurred quite regularly. As people became more engaged with the Centre, they would often come to me and ask why we weren’t involved in certain initiatives within the community.

The Still Small Voice – Are You Listening to It?

Do you feel lost at times, almost in a state of paralysis when confronted with making some decision? In my last blog I wrote about our freedom of choice, of choosing the path we desire to walk. But all of us, myself included, can allow ourselves to be so beaten down by the opinions of [Read More...]

Not Choosing Is Choosing

Have you ever had a decision to make in your life and just can’t figure out what to do? It might be as simple as what movie to see with a friend or it could be making a major career move. I know in my own life there have been times I over-analyzed a situation [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...]
