The true healing power of forgiveness resides within, dormant until we consciously awaken its potential. Forgiveness brings many things, but above all it releases others from our ropes, releasing us from having to drag around the weight of every attack. Yes, the choice to forgive is a conscious, ongoing process—not usually brief. The longer we […]
By visualizing a particular nature scene, I’ve begun to bring a little more ease into my life. I really love this mindfulness practice (and I’m still working on it) because it frees me from clinging to all the never-ending thoughts. Plus, it fits in perfectly with the changing seasons.
What might happen if you let go of some of those things you intuitively know are weighing you down? Would you have more room to breathe, more space for spontaneous helping? Perhaps you could more wholly enjoy the present. I’ve learned that there’s surely always something worth letting go on the path of evolving consciousness; […]
Why should we wait until we’ve made more money, accomplished the goal, married the person, raised the child, visited the place, or stumbled upon extra time before we’re allowed to enjoy life and feel blessed to be alive? If you’re like me, and you want to live an abundant life in this moment, please keep […]
The deep blue sea is a universal pool of wisdom, as I see it. It is exciting and humbling, with terrifying depth and a vastness that escapes any one view. Here’s a little wisdom from the sea, as I see it (and maybe you’ll see it from a whole different view, which is wonderful, too).

These quotes are here […]
As a “recovering perfectionist,” I completely understand the bittersweet relationship between passion and perfection. If you’re passionate about anything, chances are you’ve struggled (and maybe continue to struggle) with perfectionist tendencies. The wonderful truth is that this world is the perfect place to focus on what makes us come alive.
These three deep breathing exercises are simple to deploy in any given situation (which is why I love them), and can play a valuable role in managing stress. The outside world can be chaos, and most of the time it’s beyond our control; the inner world, when peaceful, proves to be a powerful source of […]
Letting go of the past, the hurt, the perfect picture in our heads, our resistance to loving life now—this is NOT always so easy to do, but it’s a worthwhile journey to take. If we’re spiritual, it becomes part of the spiritual journey. It becomes part of the human journey, I am certain. This poem […]
Try to be happy for this moment (because this moment is your life), but if you can’t enjoy what’s happening or what you’re doing, try even harder to accept what is.
