When we grieve -- and we do so only because we love -- the dimensions of that grief differ for each death without one being greater or lesser than another; we grieve from different parts of our heart for different reasons. The heart is not a cliche. People experiencing grief can distinguish its impact from momentary sadness. True grief brings with it a physical tension gnaws at us from the heart center.

The culture of confrontation is so common that one might not even notice it. It’s part of our daily lives: east vs. west, immigrants vs. natives, rich vs. poor, right wing vs. left wing, light vs. dark, science vs. religion, medicine vs. alternative medicine etc. Even many of the most basic questions in our daily lives originate from polarities which are often even artificial. However, to see beyond this dualistic thinking could free one from unnecessary fighting to…Continue

One of the simplest, most familiar, and important messages we receive is to love our neighbor. Unfortunately, this is a difficult message for many to manifest consistently in their daily lives. A difficulty reflected in the lack of civility often seen between neighbors near and far. The roots of this difficulty begin with the notion that loving our neighbor is a choice. A choice built upon ego illusions of separation, inequality, and unworthiness with which we come to know…Continue
Never did I perceive these two experiences as sexual abuse since there was no penetration, simply just fondling, until I realized there is no such thing as just to a five-year-old little girl. It took years to comprehend how powerful these incidences were and the impact they had on my relationships going forward.
In our world today, the trauma of sexual assault and abuse has finally gained a platform in which both women and men are being heard and listened too, and…Continue

This is not always so easy for those who might not remember how to define themselves beyond outside perceptions, judgments and opinions. In a society distracted by filter enhanced selfies, oversharing of personal information and public shaming we can lose the very heart of who we really are.…Continue

Fred Rogers’ mom taught him to look for the helpers in times of great difficulty. A lesson for all of us as we face challenges in which soft targets such as schools, places of worship, stores, concerts, sporting events, and shopping malls can in an instant become scenes of unspeakable tragedy. Our helpers are to be found in many places and their love which promotes healing is much stronger than hatred, and the fear in which it is rooted.
Fred’s Mom was Right—Look for…Continue

Faced with a painful set of unusual physical symptoms we land in our doctor’s office anxious and afraid. We feel our mind-body-spirit is not our own. Whether it is invasion by an environmental toxin, our Central Nervous System (CNS) menaced by an unknown source, or a…Continue

Abstract....When we face the toughest of times and bend down in pain, something says--"it is not over". There is still something left. And from the crumbled pieces, rises a story. A story that can inspire the world so they can see how something beautiful can arise from all that seems so lost. From the brokenness, we can walk towards wholeness again. After all, the greatest of stories rises from the broken pieces.
Abstract: Due to our own insecurities and vulnerabilities, we are often drawn to keep company with people who are negative or prone to gossip. Wrong company creates wrong energy fields and it is painful for anyone who is close to that field of energy. If we seek the company of positive people, or are in satsang, the company of the truth, we can connect with the friendship of people who are more spiritually and ethically anchored with a cheerful demeanor, people who understand us…Continue
