Endings . . . AND Beginnings

Wow, it’s just shy of a year and three weeks since my first blog post here. This is, in fact, my 40th post. You may remember some of my stated goals: . . . to inspire you to self knowledge, to listen to your own inner-knowing, and to accept responsibility for your Path and your…

The Only Way Out Is Through

This post is about something I really believe can result in a huge leap forward on our Path to Oneness as individuals and for Humanity as a whole. I’ve touched on it previously, but a more comprehensive picture has emerged. And working “through” it involves one ultimate key . . . From the beginning of…

Gratitude: “The Little Things”

“I hope that we never take for granted the little things again.” (Lauren B, Staten Island, New York) My blog post here was inspired by this quote I read in an online article, “What we can’t wait to do when the pandemic is over.”1 In a previous blog post I talked about making a post-COVID…

Self-deprecation: “Just Say No!”

self-deprecation: criticism of oneself; belittling, disparaging or undervaluing oneself; being excessively modest. I hesitated to write this post when my Muse first started inspiring me with concepts and even exact wording. I knew it would be self-revealing. But then I decided that we’re all basically in the same boat: life. Our individual boats may be…

“Greatness” and “Humility”

I started a blog post several weeks ago about humility but my writing stumbled to a halt when I googled its definition: a low or modest view of one’s importance and having a low opinion of oneself. “Low” didn’t feel right to me. Humility feels so much richer to me than just “less than.” So…

A Different Kind of To Do List

I recently decided that rather than referring to our national and global situation as “challenging,” I’m going to start labelling it as “powerful.” Like the proverbial Phoenix triumphantly rising out of the fire and ashes, we can harness the power of the fire and ashes of the current chaos to envision and create something different,…

A Way to Measure a Year (and Your Life)

Well this blog post ended up being NOTHING like I originally thought . . . I initially happened to read a brief essay1 about how healing emotional issues usually involves “coming full circle”: working through several sequential layers of the issue—like the layers of an onion—until finally you get to your authentic self. An interesting…

About “Truth” and What’s “True”

Recommended by a dear friend, I signed up for “Notes from the Universe”1—brief daily emails of thought-provoking wisdom and inspiration. The other day, the message was about truth: Nothing heals, helps, cures, mends, builds, clears, stabilizes, fixes, balances, restores, corrects, inspires, enables, empowers, enlightens or tickles better than the truth. Ask for it by name. I…

“The Hill We Climb”

 The Hill We Climb A poem by Amanda Gorman As recited at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris January 20, 2021 (Watch 6-minute video here.) When day comes we ask ourselves, where can we find light in this never-ending shade? The loss we carry, a sea we must wade. We’ve…

Broken Hearts—Open Hearts

I’ve been in denial about all the lives lost due to COVID. It now surpasses 400,000 Americans, and over 2,000,000 people worldwide. So many beloved spouses and partners, grandparents, parents, siblings, children, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, and coworkers that are just . . . gone. So many who died alone, surrounded and comforted not…
