Choosing a more nourishing narrative

“What time but now can truth be recognized?”—A Course in Miracles With all the uncertainty right now, it’s tempting to fill in the blanks with despair. When we don’t really know what’s going to happen—with the pandemic, with the economy, with the daily unrest—it’s easy to fast forward to fear. Lately, I’ve been doing just […]

My secret weapon

“Hate, in the long run, is about as nourishing as cyanide.” — Kurt Vonnegut First of all, I’ve got to gush about all the AMAZING visions y’all (yes, I was born in Kentucky) added to our planetary vision board yesterday. Thank you SO MUCH! That’s why I love possibility posses where all of us join […]

The BIG reset

“If you’re thinking, ‘but my life is upside down,’ don’t worry. How do you know down is not better than up?—Shams of Tabriz We used to have lions and tigers and bears (Oh my!) to frighten us on our journey through life. Now we’ve got a little device no bigger than a deck of cards. […]

Uplifting the Planet, One Dance at a Time

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance–Martha Graham Two days ago, I woke up discouraged and lethargic. The crazy uncle in my head was concocting a major soap opera.

“It’s the best possible time to be alive, when almost everything you thought you knew is wrong.”—Tom Stoppard Medical peeps are doing their thing.

Hitch a ride on the magic carpet

“Enchantment is never in short supply.”—Bayo Akomolafe I live in a college town. Right across the river is a funky little downtown with a wide assortment of late-night entertainment—bands, comics, pubs, deejays. Let’s just say adult beverages are frequently consumed. If you show up the next morning, there’s always money laying around. Sometimes even $100 […]

Get in on the dance

“A life of peace, contentment and happiness divests itself of everything it does not want.”—Napoleon Hill Right now, right where you are, magical things are happening. Angels, guides, your ancestors, a whole chorus of invisible beings are with you as you’re reading this. The only question is, “Are you going to drop your story?” The […]

Until further notice, celebrate everything

“Most of our assumptions have outlived their usefulness.” ― Marshall McLuhan The Course in Miracles is all about challenging assumptions. We don’t see life as it really is because the stories we tell ourselves block the world’s unlimited largesse. Instead of keeping track of all the beautiful gifts we’ve been given, we keep track of how […]

Judgments deter miracles

“The mind continuously creates hypotheses.”—Marilynne Robinson A couple days ago, at a wonderful vegan pizza restaurant in Ajijic, Mexico, I saw a sign that said, “Listen to your heart, not your habits.” That could just as well be ACIM Lesson 342. Our brains are on autopilot. They’re wired to look for threats. To automatically mobilize […]
