Schedule Recess, Big People Call it Constructive Rest.

“If you have zest and enthusiasm, you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale
I would like you to take a moment and reflect on the words “my one sweet life.” Do you feel a sense of privilege and honor being here, being alive, being You? I think that we are so blessed to be here and in this experience call life, and loving this life is a key element for succeeding in it.
When I learned to love my life, I unfolded a high state of… Continue

9 I who am host to God am worthy of Him. 10 He Who established His dwelling place in me created it as He would have it be. 11 It is not needful that I make it ready for Him, but only that I do not interfere with His plan to restore to me my own awareness of my readiness, which is eternal. 12 I need add nothing to His plan. 13 But to receive it, I must be willing not to substitute my own in place of… Continue

A few weeks ago, I lost a dear, beloved friend, Brindle, who spent over 30 years playing African Diasporic music, and was one of the most powerful women drummers I know. Brindle was the lead percussionist in Pele Juju. Shortly after her passing, she was honored at a drum and dance gathering. When I first arrived, I felt so overwhelmed with grief that I wasn’t sure I could even drum. For her sake, I found the courage to enter the building. As I began to play a traditional life celebration… Continue

I was at a conference that was training people to be speakers. The program was held near the beach, I believe it was South Padre Island. While I was there, we did a lot of cool exercises including using one’s imagination in “entering” the body of another person (that is a story unto itself).
Anyway while there, they showed a video on “If this was the first day or the last day of your life”. It was a concept that I began to play in my head. I woke up early the next morning and started… Continue

To be emotionally free you can’t remain naïve about relationships. Some people are positive and mood elevating. Others can suck optimism and serenity right out of you. Vampires do more than drain your physical energy. The super-malignant ones can make you believe you’re an unworthy, unlovable wretch who doesn’t deserve better. The subtler species inflict damage by making smaller digs which can make you feel bad about yourself—for instance, “Dear, I see you’ve put on a few pounds” or “You’re… Continue

Raise your hand if you really enjoy listening to the music on the National Public Radio show Hearts of Space. To those who raised their hands, bless you, but you may not enjoy this article. If you didn’t raise your hand, I agree with you, that music puts me to sleep. In general such music is typically intended to relax the mind and aid in meditation. In order to not be distracting such music typically is of slow tempo and evolves slowly. As such this music is not really intended for listening… Continue

October is surely one of the most enchanting months of the year. Our spirits reawaken to the world as we take note of the changing season. The long days now give way to darkness as evenings cool and nights lengthen. Energy crackles in the air as leaves swirl at our feet and are sent to whirl down the streets.
As the days grow shorter and the cold sets in, instinct signals us to stray from our diets as the natural process of hibernation begins. Work with your instincts and plan your… Continue

Let’s examine the ideas of will power and self discipline, because both of them are helpful tools to make your life happier, healthier, and more successful. Does thinking about will power make you cringe, or does it make you happy?
The idea of will power has several concepts wrapped into it: self-discipline and self-control and focus are some. On the opposite side, you might find impulsiveness or the inability to delay gratification.
If you want to be successful, I… Continue

Help Stop Misleading "Clean Coal" Campaigns

In reality, there is no such thing as "clean" coal in America today. Coal cannot be called 'clean' until its CO2 emissions are captured and stored safely.
Let's be clear: there are no U.S. homes, factories, shopping centers or churches powered by coal plants that capture and store their global warming pollution.
Today, coal power plants emit carbon dioxide (CO2), the pollutant causing the… Continue
