As we enter the holiday season with family and friends, we are encouraged to buy gifts, see Santa, and celebrate. Consumerism at its finest hour.  I offer a new way of seeing this holiday season.  A time of reflection on the past year.  A reflection of yourself, and your relationship with the universal principles of love.  This is a time marked by Christians, as the moment of the Christ. In the song O COME O O COME EMMANUEL it simple… Read more

The lesson would be learned, and it would release all judgments of others.  Every opportunity… Read more

When we look at impatience, we begin to see that it is quite acceptable behavior. Impatience can be looked at as the root cause of many disorders.  When I am sitting with impatience I feel blind, scared, and it feels like a denial of the truth.  If we can understand the truth not in a personal way, but in a impersonal way then we may be able to grasp the nature of impatience. In a simple way if you were… Read more

Gratitude By David Matthew Brown   Now most us are taught and encouraged to be thankful or live in gratitude.  Some attend workshops that suggest that gratitude is an attitude.  But is it possible to be grateful with out receiving or giving?

Isolation By David Matthew Brown Q: I find myself being more isolated, sitting at home a lot more, distracted by TV, music, cell phone, etc…what can I do? A: We always start from where it is happening.  Isolation is a form of separation.  It is like a prison between you and them.  Or perhaps it is a prison from who you are.  This sense of being alone permeates the world.  It is a disconnection from what is.  To isolate something… Read more
