Make it nice in there

“Self and world, inner and outer, are not entirely separate, and the question of what the future will be intimately involves ourselves.”—Charles Eisenstein I have a friend who is obsessed with home makeover shows. Switching up décor, lighting, even floor plans can make a big difference in a living space. There’s even a profession now […]

When your reality gets out of control

“To be empowered—to be free, to be unlimited, to be creative, to be genius, to be divine—that is who you really are.”—Joe Dispenza So I’m back from Mexico after a month of mountain hikes, glorious mighty companions (that’s what we Course students call each other) and lots of fresh air, fresh food and fresh ideas. […]

Loving this incarnation more every day.

“Sadly, there are more wild horses in holding pens than in the wild.” — Willie Nelson One of the many perks of my job is getting beautiful thoughts from beautiful people. As ya’ll know, I get lots of emails with lots of great stories. The other day (maybe yesterday, I forget), this post came in […]

It’s a-shining in me…now

“The ego is the party pooper that prevents us from dancing into the middle of the ballroom floor.”—Francis Lucille Buenas dias, mis amigos! Spending a month in Mexico’s Sierra Madres is the perfect antidote to hot Kansas summers. Long mountain hikes, $1 green juices and, of course, the Namaste community makes for an easy dive […]

Impossible? What’s impossible?

“You will be bound until all the world is seen by you as blessed.”—A Course in Miracles Happy Monday, my friends!  I’m down in Mexico, loving the weather, the mountains and all the beautiful souls who live here in Ajijic. Every morning at 9 a.m., I head to Jimmy Twyman’s Namaste community for the morning […]

Resting untroubled in the goodness of the Universe

“The world will not be saved by old minds with new programs. If it’s saved, it will be saved by new minds with no programs at all.” — Daniel Quinn I’m an awful lot like the cartoon character, Inspector Gadget. Remember the bumbling inspector who, yes, always saved the day, but had no clue it […]

Still swimming in the waves

“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us, as well.”–Voltaire Happy Thursday, my brilliant beauties. A series called False Positive (I haven’t watched it, don’t even know what it’s about) recently debuted on Hulu. But the title got me thinking how often we invest in the opposite: false […]

Boundary or Itty-Bitty Box?

“Love is a built-in strength that’s far more effective than all the usual means of self-defense.”—D. Patrick Miller It’s de rigueur these days to set boundaries. It’s okay for so and so to do this, but if he dares step over this self-imposed line in my sand, it’s curtains for him. Here’s why I prefer […]

Tear it down and start again

“Culture is a plot against the expansion of consciousness.” ~ Terence McKenna Early cultural programming trains us to “Be careful,” “Stay safe,” “Wait until conditions are just right.” But in the meantime… “you should probably purchase this special program to lower stress, to become realized, to lose weight. Sorry, culture, but I call B.S. We […]

Kill the past and come back to life

“For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.”—Thich Nhat Hanh You’ve probably heard about the cicadas, how large swaths of the U.S. (maybe other countries, too??) are about to be invaded by 1.5 million of them per acre. The thing that so intrigues me is […]
