Dabbling in Drama

Some of us think we can dabble in the drama of other peoples lives and walk away unscathed.  They actually think they can control a situation which is, by definition, out of control.  Since I have the soap box for a moment here, my suggestion is that drama, our own, and especially other peoples, is …

Binding Together

One of the keys to a successful relationship, be that relationship between friends, roommates, lovers, business or for that matter, any relationship is to create a bond.  The tricky part is creating a bond that is not so tight it will strangle the relationship.   Within any relationship growth and change are a perfectly natural …

Pop Physchology

The ideas I write about are, for the most part, what is sometimes dismissed as Pop Physchology.  Sometimes I hear people deriding this way of thinking as shallow, simple and child-like.  You know, I am good with that, because the truth is, these ideas are simple and childlike, but they are far from simple!  Who …

Two way street

Communication with the Universe, that part of us that is always there, always speaking to us, is a two way street.  We may think of this voice as our sub-conscious, or our angels, or our conscience, but it is always there, always guiding, supporting and loving us. This voice is not only helping us find …

Observation

Recently I was watching a toddler as he sprinted from his Dad’s car parked outside  the bank.  The child ran to the ATM and began pushing buttons, just like his Dad had been doing to get cash, but of course nothing came out of the machine: much to the little ones displeasure. It occurred to …

Hostility

We are pretty good at recognizing hostility when it is directed at us, heck sometimes we even imagine hostility coming at us when there is none.  But what about the hostility we direct at ourselves?   Yes, we can be hostile to ourselves.  Sometimes the hostility is overt; “You fool, you overlooked that.”  Sometimes our …

Updating your life

Throughout my life I have been known as someone who does not change easily.  I tend to choose the same clothing styles year after year, wear the same brand of watch for decades, and view with a jaundiced eye when someone comes along telling me I need to update this part of my life or …

Independence Day!

Yep, here we are on the eve of Independence Day for our nation.  Most certainly the deeper meaning of this day will get lost somewhere between the bbq and fireworks, so let me take a moment and invite you to think about what independence means; it means to severe the ties the allow others to …
