Many of us have already done lots of visualizations, manifestations, meditations and invocations. But life still seems heavy and hard. Is this just how it is to be human? It is about living a life consistently filled with worry and feelings we don’t want that resurface no matter how hard we try to separate from them?

Abstract: Autumn is a visual metaphor for the transformations we undergo. Intentionally focusing on the rich colors and symbols of the season allows us to follow the universal pattern of release and renewal.
Autumn is arguably the most beautiful of all seasons, rich in its unique colors, shades, textures, all representing movement and transformation. This occurs on a very real level as we see trees shedding leaves gently, moving from the vibrant greens to yellows, oranges, and reds…Continue
Explores how Spirit views us, how we are seen by the Divine. Describes God’s love as it is expressed in the movie “Man of La Mancha” and shows how Don Quixote and Aldonza are archetypes for the human soul and Divine Love.
In 1974, the film “Man of La Mancha” was released, telling the story of the very nearsighted Don Quixote, who mistakes windmills for attacking giants and renames a local tavern slut, Aldonza, (played…
Explores a classic “philosophy of religion” paradox regarding the qualities of God. Examines whether a beneficent God would (or could) allow miracles. Argues that the existence of a miracle would prove that God is not all-good, since one miracle would involve ignoring pleas from equally deserving supplicants.

The Colors of the Wind
The wind whistles, roars and purrs. It teases, soothes, or rips us with cold stabs to match its winter song. Poetic? Yes, but literally and subtly true.
As the speed of the wind increases, its pitch rises. A diminishing breeze sings a corresponding lower tone. When the wind dances, its movement speeds up, creating musical glissandos, with its pitch gradually changing like the howling of a wolf. How much fun it is to listen to the…Continue
