Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. ~Plato

My nails are wet so I must wait, but it is all I can think about as I run…Continue

Have you ever thought about how versatile the word love is? It can be somewhere you long to be … to be “in” love, a great fondness you feel for something or someone… “I love pizza or I love you” (indicating a vastness in its intensity I think!) something you want to feel… “I am loved”, a description for something or someone… “The flowers look lovely”, a way something is… “That baby is so lovable”. We describe Spirit as pure love and with that we have a knowing of something wonderful,…Continue
Love, the greatest elixir, sent as the ultimate gift to every person on this planet. Everything stems from Love when you think about it. Lack of it however often breeds many a complicated emotion filled situation, but when we genuinely feel it, we are the best person to be around.
But one thing that appears common among us is that with loving someone, comes attachment and attachment causes pain more than pleasure.
This article is simply inviting you to inspire exploration of…Continue
I have always tried to hide my efforts and wished my works to have a light joyousness of springtime which never lets anyone suspect the labors it has cost me. ~ Henri Matisse
When the cold, darker days of winter have passed; when we pack away our heavier draperies and we put away our winter woolens, like Mother Nature, our thoughts turn to lighter ideas of freshness. We can change to spring décor in our homes to a lighter, brighter theme and still be redecorating on a budget…Continue
Have you noticed that many children’s tales end with a victory of the heart? The hero, after following a tortuous path of struggles, dreams and hopes, always manages to fulfill his heart’s desire, while sometimes discovering it at the same time. This seems to be the only achievement that matters, the Holy Grail. These stories stay in the collective consciousness for generations because everyone can recognize himself in the hero’s quest and identify with the struggles and the longing for a…Continue
Most emotions seem to have a purpose in life. Fear warns us to flee or fight when we are in danger in order to protect us from harm. But does the emotion of jealousy have any function in our lives?
Unbridled emotions like jealousy are very dangerous. Violence and conflict, jealousy and competitiveness tear apart the purity of the innocent human soul and manifest the diabolic forces in every walk of life on a global scale. We must understand their danger and work to transform them into…Continue
When we decide to venture out of our comfort zones we can often find ourselves faced with challenges and unexpected obstacles. Anything that takes us into the unknown or somewhere we haven’t been before can be considered an initiation. It is a call to move past the fear of the unknown and to conquer and release that fear.
By understanding the process of initiation…
All our political candidates need to be sent back to compassion school. They need to take vows before they run for office that they will have compassion for we the people, for each other, for our global family, for the earth. These candidates need to become more than talk show hosts or master of ceremonies trying to woo us for votes. We condone such terrible behavior on television, candidates attacking each other, doing anything to win. Politicians shouldn’t be allowed to act so hatefully…Continue

Suppose we combine our thoughts
Step up on our respective soapboxes
Call forth a revolution
Link our strengths
Scream peace to the masses
Infiltrate with knowledge and information
Is it not worth a try?
Suppose with one word
To the right person
That we –
Could change the world

Through the caverns of the clouds
A luminous awakening approaches
Only those lucid to the truth
Shall see what mankind has become
When the layers of misguidance
And cloy misconceptions are peeled away
Those still blind
Will be our purpose
and our insanity
I look to the downtrodden sky
Discerning, that soon
The heavens will unleash upon the earth
An unsuspected solitude
Wrapped in a prism of hope
Heal thyself –…

I Believe in Angels

I’ve seen them
On a lonely night
In a glowing light
Many of us grew up with either reading the Peanuts comic in the newspaper or watching the now traditional cartoons at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since its creation in 1950 until its creator died in February 2000, many life lessons were portrayed through these simple yet timeless stories. When you think back over the various cartoons you can see where the lessons of growing up and life in general were played out. We always felt sorry for poor Charlie Brown, good guy who never…Continue
