The Relaxed Soul on “When Our Desires are too Small”

Many times when people get down their desires disappear... and it’s our desires that keep us moving forward in life. 

The Buddha huge desires, he wanted to understand the human mind, and teach people how to control the mind and find inner peace. …

Week 4: YOGA and Your Beliefs


So far we’ve taken a look at the relevance of the system of YOGA to the body, the mind, and change and transformation. Now we begin to examine the structures of the mind to help uncover the mystery of the beliefs we have formed which govern how we live life.

Your Personality and Your Home Style

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for. ~ Georgia O'Keeffe


Have you identified a color palette that is “you?”  Do you strive to show your personality through the choices you make for your home’s décor? Are there colors that look better with your shade of skin, and are those colors also in your home’s décor?


Your Personality


There are many ways to…

The Mind Set of a Healthy Person

How might you define a healthy person? And if you already know what it means, would you say that you are a healthy person? What do you think is most important in being healthy: a healthy mind or a healthy body?  Or could it be that having both mind and body equally healthy is the key?


What is health?


I love dictionaries that provide the root for words, and one of these dictionaries is the online, 1828 edition of Noah Webster. There, he defines…

The Relaxed Soul on “Being in the Moment and Planning Instead of Telling Our Story”

When we start telling our story of pain and suffering to everyone we meet we become that story and sooner or later we lose sight of what really matters. 

We live in the past connected to our pain... disconnected from the present moment and the possibilities of greatness yet to come.…

There is no such thing as a Dumb Animal (?)

(Hi Trevor, this is a bit different from some of my other posts, as my channel has opened up to something slightly new. I don't know quite how to articulate what I mean, but it's like the amps have been turned up. 'These ones go to eleven.'  )

Humans have been purported to be the most intelligent animal for centuries, because we are ‘blessed’ with rational thought. Other members of the animal kingdom have been given a kind of hierarchy according to how close…

How To Find Courage To Change Your Life For The Better Today

Courage is very crucial to hold when you want to make your life blossom. It forces you to leave your attachments behind, getting in touch with the unknown along with practicing trust, faith and being comfortable with uncertainty.

Going through this process could be pretty scary and unstable.

Many years ago, back when I was a designer and working 12 hours a day, I had a feeling in my heart that my career was not aligned with me.

I was in denial…

To Be An Emissary of Compassion

We live in a dynamic place of complimentary opposites – positive/negative, male/female, light/dark. When we are born into this plane of complimentary opposites, the unconditional becomes conditional. However, somehow we are still able to grasp the concept of being unconditional even as we are being conditional about love. Just as we are able to grasp the concept of being one, while we are being more than one. We don’t see it logically with our mind, but we know it is true at some other level…

The Relaxed Soul on “Meditation for Spreading the Golden Light of Love”

Close your eyes and breathe in and see Golden Light of Love coming into your feet, and take another breath and see the Golden Light move into your ankles and up into your upper legs. Breathe deep and take another breath and see the light move into your torso and up into your chest, and finally up into your arms, neck, and head... relaxing everything as it moves up your body.…

Favor Shares the Abused Mind.

All abuse is accompanied by favors and acts of kindness. These “loving” acts of kindness solidify the state of codependency because it perpetuates the utter indifference that most people have to their own diminishing, humiliating, ongoing abuse.

If you are currently in a relationship and you are suffering (to any degree) because of it, then you are being abused—no matter how caring that person may sometimes appear to you on the surface. This is symptomatic of the phantom prey, which…

Checklist for Contemplative Living

I borrowed this from the Merton Institute. I taped a copy on the refrigerator and sort of use it as a daily checklist for life. Maybe somebody will find it useful. I certainly do. Thanks Thomas Merton and the Merton Institute for Contemplative Living.


We are living contemplatively when:

 We intentionally engage in activities intended to deepen our relationships with ourselves, God, others and nature.

We are conscious that our decisions, actions…

Ruminations on Luke 7: 36- Luke 8: 3 and Galations 2: 16

Today’s Gospel offers us the story of the woman with the jar of perfume who was welcomed by Jesus during a feast in house of Simon the Pharisee. One, just one, of the awesomely radical aspects of the Gospel message of Jesus was or is the surprisingly liberal attitude Jesus had towards women. It probably comes to no surprise to anyone here that during New Testament times women lived very marginalized lives.  It goes without saying that things aren’t quite fixed all the way…
