We All Long to Be Seen and Heard

We All Long to Be Seen and Heard

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

Do you have any good news?

Do you have any good news?

One of the things I realized a few years ago is how people, myself included, would elaborate endlessly to others about all the bad things that happen… the drama, the misfortune, the inconveniences of day to day life, how much gas keeps going up, the cost of living, the way children are today, the spot…

Sacred Texts

Sacred Texts

I’ve always resonated with these words of Carl Jung, stated in Memories, Dreams, and Reflections: “My life often seemed to me like a story that has no beginning and no end. I had the feeling that I was a historical fragment, an excerpt for which the preceding and succeeding text was missing. I could well imagine…

Finding My Shaman

Finding My Shaman

When I visited a friend and congregant who had tragically lost her husband and found her filled with energy, I was astonished. She explained that a shaman had done a ritual on her and invited the energies of her losses throughout the years to come back into her being. In that moment and that space,…
