Are You Living Truth

yellow light
There was a woman, who while driving, approaches a yellow light. The guy in front of her comes to a sudden stop and she lays on her horn. She was so aggravated that he did not go through the light that she started yelling and screaming and doing sign language out the window.

Unbeknownst to her there is a policeman watching all of this. The officer pulls up behind her and asks her to pull over and to show her driver’s license.

He promptly arrests her and takes her to straight to jail. After a few hours, he comes in and he lets her go.

She says to the officer “Sir I’m confused, what have I done wrong?”and he said “Well ma’am I saw your car with the bumper stickers that read honk if you love Jesus, one mind one heart, honk if you pray, Namaste etc..so when I saw the way you acted when the man in front of you stopped at the light, I thought for sure your car was stolen.”

Often we feel imprisoned or stuck in life and we aren’t always sure what we have done wrong? Why is this happening to me? Or why is this happening to me again?

Often it is that we are not congruent with our “real selves”.

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds. Their bark on the average is 31 inches thick. Their…
