Scary Times

Posted on May 11, 2016 By

Money and the media have decided who our presidential candidates will be. Both Trump and Clinton have tremendous coverage; Sanders is too normal to claim much attention.

Sliding Past Troubles

Sliding Past Troubles. That’s my new goal. I don’t need to run into each new challenge as if it’s a wall I need to take down.


Help Getting Out of a Bad Place

Posted on March 24, 2016 By

Once, I was in a bad place and a friend asked what he could do to help. I thought about it, and asked him to ask me four questions. It occurred to me (but naturally, I forget) that I can ask myself these same questions: What are you afraid of right now? What do you…


The Path to Enlightenment

I’m not there, heavens no! But I’m so much farther along the path of spiritual understanding than I was when I started out decades ago. Right now, I’m still learning, but I’m in a pretty good place.

It scares me to see how far Donald Trump has gotten in the contest for the White House. To be the leader of the free world. To have our relationships with countries that, let’s face it, we need to cooperate with, left in the hands of a man whose code of conduct is “My way…

Reminder to Self

Posted on December 11, 2015 By

Ask myself: How can I make this easy? Everyone has troubles. Be nice. Tell the Truth. Tell the Truth. What is really going on? Ask myself: Am I living my pattern, or my plan? Be patient with everybody. Including myself.
