The Journey of Life

Forever young (dedicated to all the women on Flickr)

One of my teachers once said, “We are not here to solve all the problems of the world… we are here to not be ONE of them.” Life is filled with many twists and turns, speed bumps, ditches and dead end streets. This is the journey of life. There are so many things about life that we can not change. We can however, change ourselves. We are surrounded today with many positive celebrity people that look so young in their aging process. I am not talking about plastic surgery but the amount of energy they still have in their lives. They show up in life with an energy in their sixties that most people do not have in their 30’s. I have met people that are only in their 20’s and they are already too old. One of my dear friends just turned 86 and she said that she and her husband went out the other evening with some old people…and I said, “How old were they?” she said, ”Very old.”

This is our greatest challenge when we are hit with life’s tragedies (and we will be). Allow yourself to go through the process; hurt, grieve and do whatever you need to do but make a vow to yourself to stay young on the inside.

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

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…
