The Power of Saying “Yes”

Have you ever wanted something – REALLY wanted something! – but, when it was placed before you there was a moment of hesitation before you accepted it? It’s happened to me. It seems that many of us have a problem saying “yes.” We can be so focused on needing something in our lives that when [Read More...]

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...]

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...]

Sacrifice Nothing

In the opening sequence of the 1960s TV show Star Trek the voice over said: “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” It takes a certain kind of determined mind to take on such a task.

Some people approach the situation from the standpoint of personal responsibility – as [Read More...]

Go for the Gold

Make no mistake about it; the Sochi Olympics had millions of people around the world glued to the big screen for much of February.   The experience was so intense for some people, that in Canada, very few even slept on Sunday as they opted to get up as early as 4 a.m. (or just [Read More...]

The Power of Resistance

One of the most subtle ways that we get in the way of ourselves is to resist the change that we want to see.   It’s easy to recall Ernest Holmes’ mantra “change your thinking, change your life” when we’re in the midst of moving ourselves forward into a new level of consciousness, but the [Read More...]

Love is a Verb

When I was a little boy my mother used to sit down with me a few days before Valentine’s Day and help me make up my list of classmates. She told me it was very important that I not leave anyone out, because everyone was deserving of love and there was no limit on it. [Read More...]
