How do you want to live?

How do you want to live?

With all parts of the soul complete.
Do you want to be fully awake or half asleep?
Do you want to be totally alive or nearly dead?

We have never been better, or greater, or more alive than we are right now. You see, as long as we believe there was a better yesterday or that tomorrow holds for us some guarantee, we are missing out on the greatest moment we will ever have, and that is right now. Right now is where we have the power to change our minds, to have a new thought, or to let go of something we no longer want because we truly are empowered individuals.”

How can words convey the depth and sweetness of unconditional love, the soul’s joy in coming home to God, the stunning revelation that despite all your errors, you are forgiven? How to describe the realization that your every thought and deed is known, and the bliss of being shown that your soul is pure, not…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
