Day 3 on my 30 straight days of hot yoga at Moksha in Los Angeles, California on La Brea. Today started off on my mat with wonderful strength, and inner power formed and maintained with my breath. The breath works to ignite, enliven, and move the body. I love that we are encouraged to breath [Read More…]
Think of 5-10 people you would give an Oscar too and send them this:
“And the Oscar for compassion, kindness, and love goes too……(NAME) I am giving you this Oscar to let you know I see you, care about you, love you, and appreciate you. I know that you may think you are not seen or heard, but you are, and I celebrate you! All of you! Not a day goes by that I am not thankful that you are in my world. Love you” [Read more…]

Yes this is a mystery, the mystery is infinite, and so enjoy the show. We all know the end, we die. Live here and find away to stop thinking that thinking is living. It’s not. We are “beings” whether you call yourself human or spiritual. We are not here to master our thoughts, change them, but simply to recognize we are not them, and that the thoughts are not our identity.
Enjoy the mystery! Every breath you breath is a page of the novel, no rush. You are there now. Reading this is part of the plot in your life….to be continued,,,:) [Read more…]

I believe that there are good people left on this planet who do good things everyday who are never seen or talked about and today we see you, thank you! [Read more…]

As always, I invite you not to trust me but discover it for yourself. Spend time hearing the breath, your breath. And as you are aware of the breath, see if there is really anything to talk about.

Although both masculine and feminine equally have their origin in the Divine, I would like to take a special look at the feminine in Islam to help redress the balance because the feminine side of Islam has been mostly overlooked so far. Moreover, in the sources of Islam and in the Sufi tradition growing from there, we find a distinct, explicit preference for the feminine aspect of Allah, especially the nature of ultimate Divine Reality as essentially feminine.
Over the years I have developed this “7-fold” rosary with prayers celebrating the Mysteries of Mary Magdalene and the Sacred Union at the heart of the Christian Gospels. This rosary has 7 groups of 7 prayer beads each, separated by a single prayer bead that introduces each group or “Mystery.” The rosaries are prayed with two sets of “Magdalene Mysteries”: [Read more…]
