A rush to judgment

It seems to me that today, the entire industry of providing news is predicated upon encouraging a rush to judgment.  Now, I get that there is so much competition to be the first to break a story, to be the first to get an interview that caution is often thrown to the wind when it …

Keep on pouring

On your spiritual journey, sometimes the most important thing you can do is to keep on pouring.  Let me explain.  You reach the point in your spiritual evolution where what you are doing does not seem to be producing results;  you are no happier now than when you started.  This is not time to give …

In memory of…

From here, I look good!

Getting dragged-in

Drama is the claws of the past dragging us backwards.  How often do you find yourself embroiled in drama?  Finding yourself distracted on the way to success by the monkey chatter of everyday life?  Drama is not your friend.  On the surface, having a conversation about who did what to whom may seem like simply …

Creatures of habit

Yep, humans are creatures of habit.  Why?  According to a book I am reading it is because thinking makes our brains use calories, and our self-protection mechanisms are built to conserve calories.  I guess that is why it is so hard to lose that stubborn fat around our middle section! The book I am reading …
