Paradoxical Times

Paradoxical Times

We are walking our path in paradoxical times. We hear that the world is waking up, yet we read every day that another life or many lives have been taken by senseless tragedies. We evolve with technology yet ponder how to stay connected. We have prepackaged foods yet struggle to take care of ourselves. We have more knowledge but seem to know less. We believe in dreams yet have difficulty believing in our own. We long to believe in God or something larger than ourselves, yet we do not seem to understand that the way to God is by loving what is closest to us.

We have more wealth, yet in so many ways we are still poor, and many of us are longing for a life of meaning, value, and purpose. We long to have a message and an understanding of life that allows us to be heard, recognized, and discovered for who we truly are. We long to matter, and as a teacher of mine many years ago always said, “We are here not to solve all the problems of the world but to not be one of the problems of the world.”

We have become a “me” or “what about me” generation, yet we do not innately understand that there is not a true me expressing in most of us. We are programmed and robotic rather than innately being who we are destined to be.

All of us long to be appreciated and valued. We long to be seen and heard. Until we see and hear our own inner voices and callings, we will simply continue to die a little each and every day.

We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection. We are all birthed with the God-ordained intention to make miracles….

Modern Day Miracles

Modern Day Miracles

We use the phrase “I was scared to death” because we have felt this fear throughout the course of our lives, and we die a little each time this paradox is fed into our psyches. We cannot surrender to goodness, for we are inherently afraid that we will die, and when we deny that we…

What Is Your Perception?

What Is Your Perception?

Judge not according to appearances means more than “I did not like the dress she was wearing”; “I do not think she made the right decision”: or “I do not like how he acts”- Judge not according to appearances means that we shift our perception from the limited ideas of who and what we are-…

What Happened?

What Happened?

When we are born into this physical existence, we know innately that we are possible. We are connected to the infinity of the universe, and therefore the sky’s the limit. So what happens to us? How do we go from dreaming and desiring to dreading and disclaiming? How do we go from joy and wonder…
