Does the intention behind your partner's thoughts and words matter? It appears as if science has delivered yet another blow to those that find themselves in a relationship with a less than ideal partner. By “less than ideal” I simply mean one who leans toward the negative, in addition to discouraging their significant other through…

Do you remember in high school when you picked your classes and electives? I bet you didn't realize you were training for doing that the rest of your life. Now you're probably wondering what is she talking about? Think of it this way, the entire world is a school and your life is just one wing in the school as is everyone else. Now, just like in high school when you choose certain classes and electives and who you wanted to take them with, so too do you choose who to take classes with…Continue

I have lost my youthful optimism.
Optimism, by definition, is a feeling or belief that good things will happen in the future. It is a way of framing life in a positive light and is generally a quality that most people would consider positive.
Well, not me. I have come to realize that I am better off without it.
It happened quite suddenly, about three years ago now. Actually, it might not have been the process of losing it that happened suddenly,…Continue

Driving into Town at Night.
There is still a chill in the night air
I see pedestrians wearing shorts and hoodies
It was pitch dark
Driving up the mountain after the eclipse
Of the full moon
It's still too soon
For a waning moon to rise
My thoughts are becoming light
After the dark of the night
The wave retreats, and returns
Like the tides pulled by the moon.
Next morning, as…

When I was young, around 16 or so, I remember a friend of my mothers who seemed to bounce from one unhealthy relationship to another. She would meet someone and INSTANTLY fall in love…this was it! This was the man she was going to marry; this was the end of the dating road for her!!!!
Within weeks, however she would find that he was withdrawing, treating her unkind, not tending to her needs, the list goes on. Rather than seeing this happen and walking away she would start to try even…Continue

Here's a Buddhist parable about the inevitability of death. A woman, angry that her son had died, demanded that the Buddha restore him to life. He agreed to do so on the condition that the woman find one person in the village who did not know the sorrow of death. She undertook her mission, determined to find that person, but weeks later returned, exhausted after visiting every house, finally understanding that no one is untouched by death and grief. There are those few who have been…Continue
Take a moment and delve into your awareness of what you want most in life – your dreams, your successes, your personal realization. In order to attract what you want, you must first become a vibrational match to those realities. Those realities that you want for yourself are there in potential. You can “extract” those realities out of the canvas of the universe the same way Michelangelo “extracted” David from a piece of marble. You are the artist who creates your…Continue
I believe that our lives here on earth are one enormous learning situation. I have seen the lessons zoom in front of me time, after time, after time until I finally get it. Many lessons come in the form of discomfort.
The first time I was consciously aware that there was discomfort in my life came long after it had been happening for quite a while. It’s like having a veil torn away from your face and thinking “Oh dear! This has made me uncomfortable for a long time and I…Continue

Psyche -- the human mind or soul [C17: from Latin, from Greek psukhē breath, soul; related to Greek psukhein to breathe]
Getting to know someone or knowing someone well means learning their psyche or soul. The brain uses information about another person to generate a working model of their psyche or soul. If you have ever said that someone you know would love a certain movie or book, then you have used a working model of their soul to know something that they would know and then used…Continue
Did you know that you are an interdimensional being? You not only reside in the first, second, and third dimensions…keep going...you exist in the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh…and then things get interesting as we move into the higher dimensions, to where our Higher Consciousness resides.
In the third dimension, past/future, cause/effect, etc., give rise to the appearance of separation. Opposites are a perception derived primarily from the left hemisphere of your brain that allows…Continue
How can you make work into a spiritual practice?
More specifically, how can you do it and still live within a secular framework? After all, the most obvious way to make work into a spiritual practice is to do something like join a religious order or get a job in a house of worship. If that’s not an option for you, then how do you consciously integrate your career or job into your spiritual practice?
The first step is to acknowledge two of the most prevalent…Continue

One of the biggest mistakes that we make in relationships is attempting to change the other person. We think that we can shine a turd and turn him into a knight or we mistakenly think that if THEY changed to suit OUR needs we would suddenly have the relationship of our dreams.
It is not our jobs to change those in our lives or mold them into who we want or think they should be. It’s futile and only ends up using up valuable resources that could…Continue

Involved With A Back & Forth Lover? Those lovers who cannot manage to stay in your life consistently but instead float in and out on a schedule which fits them? They want you one moment and the next you cannot get them to return your call?
Sound familiar? I thought so.
It’s massively frustrating to be in a relationship where it’s one emotional roller coaster after another. One moment you are up, the next you are down! One moment all is right as rain and…
