What is your hurry? Whether you realize it or not time is your most precious possession. You tell someone I will give you five minutes of my time. You set preferences on how to budget your time, and It seems you never have enough... Read more

There is one consistent truth in prayer and meditating on my word. There is a battle for your mind. Even though you seek me with your whole heart, your thoughts are going to wander off from keeping your attention on me. I encourage you to understand when your thoughts stray away; it happens to everyone. (Letting Go of the Attachments in our Minds) Instead of being discouraged, please learn to overcome the distractions by letting go of them and refocusing... Read more

I am the desire of the ages. Once setting foot on the moon, humanity continues to explore, reaching to unlock an ever eluding purpose for life in the distant stars. St. Augustine, a mere mortal, understood why humankind would never discover meaning and rest for his soul in the world. His words written down in history declares God you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in you. Since the beginning of time,... Read more

Just come home. When you left home, you were so restless wondering what you would do with your life, and you couldn’t sit still. You had one thought on your mind to seek your fame and fortune. You felt something was missing, and following me was out of the question. You were afraid I was holding out on you that my plan for your life wouldn’t let you spread your wings and fly.

When you know, something is not right in your body; I do not want you to be afraid to seek help. You know better than anyone else when you’re not feeling right.

I hope someone you love can be there with you in the... Read more

Contemplative prayer is the practice of gazing upon the nature of the infinite Christ. It is centering our thoughts and focusing our absolute being upon the awareness of God. Alone with God in the silence, our hearts praise and seek the face of the one who reveals the invisible. It is in the silence we open our hearts to the eternal mystery of a transcendent father and mother. We quiet the nonstop noise bantering in our heads, continually seeking an... Read more

I am a human judging machine in need of a cure. My mind is a dualistic processor of information. It is a binary operating system with either/or thinking as the default position. I can identify the character flaws of everyone but cannot recognize my own. My mind evaluates and makes instantaneous judgments on everything I see or hear about you. The moment I see you or listen to you say something; I immediately assess whether I like you or not.... Read more

Contemplative prayer is the conscious awareness of living in communion with God.  Somewhere the church lost the understanding that the purpose of prayer is to grow in intimacy with the Creator of the universe. Prayer is more than saying, reading, and reciting prayers to God even though they are all good. In the most authentic sense, prayer is the path to cultivating an intimate relationship with the eternal Father and Mother. Prayer teaches us to rest in the knowledge Gods... Read more

I stand at the door and knock, waiting for the invitation to gain entrance into your heart to commune with you one on one. I know how crazy your world can be at times.  Many thoughts in your head keep you awake at night. The anxiety you feel for your loved ones permeate your entire being. You have so much to do and so little time to do it. You ask yourself; will I ever get a moment’s peace? Will... Read more
