Easter breakthrough to what appears to be impossible

Easter breakthrough to what appears to be impossible

Early Sunday Easter morning on my patio: birds singing, my cherry and apple trees blossoming, seeds in my vegetable garden sprouting. I’m moved to tears by the magnificence of it all. How does all of this beauty and power of creation happen?! The rose bushes pushing out their new 2017 blooms. The sycamore growing new […]

I Didn’t Like Myself or My Life

I Didn’t Like Myself or My Life

For years I was bored with life. I didn’t like myself or my life. My experience then was pretty joyless and I had no dreams for the future.

Most of their energy is in the past and the future: angry/bitter/regretful about the past, worrysome/fearful about the future. Fascinating, huh?! Does your worry ever make a positive difference in the […]

Follow Your Bliss!

Follow Your Bliss!

“Follow your bliss”, Joseph Campbell said. Some people think that following our bliss means we’ll be skipping down a yellow brick road toward something wonderful, but never getting anything real accomplished and never arriving.

Why Change Is Important to Your Happiness

Why Change Is Important to Your Happiness

Are you subconsciously afraid of change? Change is good. Change is safe. These phrases sound simple and easy, but inwardly are you afraid of change? Possibly you’re frightened of what you’ll find in a new and different life. Or afraid you’ll lose your loved ones who won’t change along with you. Or maybe you’re afraid you won’t know what […]
