Romancing the Past

Somewhere between the ancient world and the modern world, exists this divide, or at least, it's perceived that they are divided. When this conversation happens, it is usually predictable. The modern world is demonized with its technology and busy pace. And a romancing begins of by-gone eras of ancient village life, which can still be experienced in parts of the world untouched by modernization. There is a push to get back to nature, back to basics. We visit these ancient societies, and…

An elevated state of consciousness

Elevated states of consciousness are not only for “special people” who dedicate their lives to meditating on a mountain top or in a monastery.  They are possible for all human beings, and make us more present in our daily activities.  We can choose how to be in every moment, we can choose love and happiness, bringing the spiritual into our daily activities, to totally transform our human experience.


We believe that an elevated state of consciousness is for "special"…

The Heart of Connection

Empathy is defined as the psychological identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.” Empathy results from understanding another deeply. When we look at the world from our partner’s point of view, we begin to bridge the gap of understanding between us. When we are emotionally activated by tension, fear, and anger, it is extremely difficult to empathize with and understand the other’s perspective at first. We are too…

Too Soon To Tell

There is a story about an old Chinese farmer who lived in ancient times. He was the envy of his rather small village, because unlike most of the other farmers, he possessed a horse. One day, however, his horse ran away and his neighbors who soon heard of his misfortune were quick to offer him words of consolation. “What a shame that you’ve lost your horse; how sad.” The old farmer responded. “Perhaps it’s a bad thing; perhaps not. Who knows?” Then a week after the horse ran away, it returned…

Ego--Our Survival Energy


Our ego plays an extremely important role in our life—survival. Its single purpose is to ensure our daily and mortal survival. Unlike what has often been written or said, it can exert a positive, as well as negative impact upon our lives, including the connection between our humanity and Divinity. Understanding its true purpose and potential for good can allow us to fully live and experience the best of what we and life have to offer—humanly and spiritually.

Mastering Emotions

Abstract: Learning that we are the ones that have control of each and every thought and emotion, and that it is up to us to really observe our self and also our surroundings to see what is happening around us that may lead to that emotion.

When you wake up in the morning, you have a choice to make, to either begin each day with a clean start, or hold on to things from yesterday or even further back. This was something taught to me as I began my healing journey 9 months ago.…

Looking for Salvation in All The Wrong Places

To the degree that old unhealed wounds and unmet needs are carried into adulthood, we will see our partner as having the power, even the responsibility to rescue us from this pain by providing us finally, with the quality of love that we never received. What we desire from this person is love that is healing, affirming, all encompassing, unconditionally accepting and empowering, in short, salvation. Not only is this expectation unrealistic, it’s unattainable. Still, the desire for love is so…

Why Intuition Fails You—and What to Do About It

By Robyn M Fritz

Getting Help Sooner Rather Than Later

Most couples wait too long to get help. Unnecessary suffering occurs in secrecy and isolation when you are too embarrassed to ask for assistance. The time to get help for your marriage is when one (not both) of you feels the need for it. Putting this agreement in place before things deteriorate will support early intervention and prevent painful, time-consuming arguments later on. Getting help when you are unable to work things out isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of…

Lining Up What We Feel, Think, Say and Do

“Happiness is when what you think, that you say, and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi


If we find ourselves thinking about the "I" word, maybe it's because we’ve been noticing the places in the lives of others and in our own life where it's been out. The 'it' that's out is "integrity." When we aren’t paying close attention to our own integrity, we judge and react to others. When we discover the ways that we justify our own…

Overwhelmed? Create a Battle Plan to Conquer Daily Stress

Sometimes stress hits us like a sucker punch to the gut. And sometimes it creeps up on us. 

We may not be able to stop stressful emergencies from happening but there's a lot we can do about the stress that wears us down on a daily basis. Many of us have the same stress over and over again. And we now just accept it.
