On the verge

Right now you are on the verge of a new dawn. For the next few days you will most likely forget to write 2019 on your checks, letters and other documents. Forget the New Year Resolutions, (they will probably go by the wayside quickly anyway) here is an opportunity to begin a new day in …

The hot button

What really ticks you off is your hot button. We all have something that can set us off, why I bet even Buddha had something. There is nothing wrong with having a hot button if, and I mean if, you recognize when it has been pushed. Once you are able to recognize one of your …

The Christmas wish

May you find a deeper appreciation of the power of giving and receiving love this Christmas.

Everything changed

December 7, 1972 everything about living on planet Earth changed.  On that day 48 years ago, astronauts aboard Apollo 17 took an image that has become one of the most reproduced images in human history.  Known as The Blue Marble this image, for the first time in human history reminded us of two things.  The …

Demonizing others

The most powerful thing about demonizing others is that we create a scapegoat for our own fears.  The most disempowering thing about having a scapegoat is we no longer have to face our own shortcomings. Learning to improve ourselves With a scapegoat, or someone to blame for what makes us uncomfortable, we by-pass an essential …
