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. […]

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 […]

The body is overrated

“If you want to make yourself miserable, you have endless opportunities because always, someone will do something you do not like.”–Sadghuru Hey, my friends. I’m heading to group (I guess it’s my Mexican Possibility Posse) and, after that, to a natural hot springs. So I thought I’d post this excerpt from one of the two […]

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 […]

Running with the stars

“I’m writing a book. I have the page numbers done. Now, I just need to fill in the rest.” –Stephen Wright Happy Friday, my friends. Before this day gets away, I want to send a quick update. I’m in Ajijic, Mexico, hanging out with James Twyman and his wonderful Namaste community.  You might remember I […]

Light and joy and peace abide in me

“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive: love, peace and justice.” –Mr. Rogers Okay […]

Well, duh!

“Feel at home in the universe, enjoy its innumerable marvels. Be active in it, contribute to it, participate in the healing. This is where Reality is.”—Richard Rohr I suppose it was inevitable. That I was going to fall in love with Ajijic and that I would be invited on epic adventures. Beings as I rank […]

Important news flash: There is only one problem left in the world.

“Through His power and glory all your wrong decisions are undone completely, releasing you and your brothers from every imprisoning thought.” —A Course in Miracles According to my friend, Christine, March 20 is the International Day of Happiness. She also says it’s Alien Abduction Day. But we won’t get sucked up (pardon the pun) into […]

Love like crazy

“Let go all the trivial things that churn and bubble on the surface of your mind.”—A Course in Miracles Okay, universe, I get it! I may be dense, but when I hear something enough times (say like 42), I have no choice but to acknowledge that the bigger thing has come a’knocking. It has an […]
