Our thoughts are the magic wand that brings our realities. Be careful what you put in the hat to manifest the best possibilities. Abra-ca-da-bra!
hot shower delights cleanses, stages a song makes me smell better
Language is of little value if we study only its words and grammatical structure. Knowing the seven notes of the music scale does not give me a symphony. One can not speak of love with pretty words or passionate music. … Continue reading
I examine the budding branch of the tree ignoring for the moment, its roots, trunk and other branches. Today I watch a mother bird sitting on her nest. She, in return, watches me. As our eyes connect, our souls exchange … Continue reading
Poetry, with its metaphors and fresh perspectives helps to reveal obtuse, odd, and difficult concepts, for it speaks to the heart as well as the mind. Oh, that we all were poets, which, of course, we are becoming.
Teach me the language of prayer that I may pray without ceasing. Let the words of love and devotion pour from my heart when my lips need to be silent. Let not one moment pass when the beautiful language of … Continue reading
Wisdom and ethics go hand in hand. The ignorant who walk in darkness are not yet capable of wisdom or of being ethical.
Our perception of who we truly are is like the ripening of fruit. Unripe fruit is the same as ripened fruit…a pear is a pear. Yet the ripened fruit is sweeter, more colorful, capable of giving us pleasure and nourishment. … Continue reading
When speaking of spiritual matters, we often use the word, “Light,” but this Light is not the same as that which comes from the sun or a candle. If we say the Creator is the Light, what does that mean? … Continue reading

Wisdom comes not in a burst of understanding, but rather as tiny unfoldings as the rosebud opens to full blossom. This wisdom, though once concealed, is now open to all who care to receive it. Wisdom is the Light, it … Continue reading
I no longer explain, I simply state my position and shut up. I do not make excuses, or apologize for not wanting to do something. “No, I do not care to do that.” I am also learning that I do … Continue reading
Before I can grow in wisdom, I must first know my Creator. This knowing comes not through scholarly effort on my part, but rather emanates from Source as my heart opens to receive. Later, I can grow in wisdom and … Continue reading
