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 […]

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 […]

Receiving the frequency loud and clear

“Remind yourself that you are not the mind and that its problems are not yours.”—Sri Nisargadatta Mahara You gotta love the Dude’s persistence. Even with our chatty minds constantly looking for problems and judging everything they see, The Dude still manages to make contact. I’ve spent a couple weeks purposefully aware of The Dude as […]

This one word changes everything

“You don’t have to like it. But it’s easier if you do.”—Byron Katie Over the years, I’ve offered up a simple two-step gratitude game (A.A. 2.0) and dispensed life’s two magic words. But today, I’m taking it a step further, paring it down to one simple word that continues to be a game-changer in my […]

Forget conventional wisdom

“The first step to slaying a dragon is for one person to say, probably drunk in a bar, “It can be done.”—Alexandra Rowland It’s important to remember there are ALWAYS different ways to look at things. And if ever there was a subject that could use some humor and playfulness, it’s — dare I say […]

Is there confetti in your pocket?

“We are the promise of one people, one breath declaring to one another: I see you. I need you. I am you.”—Richard Blanco I often share stories from my inbox, miracle stories that, as I’ve mentioned, often begin with “You are NEVER going to believe this.” Today, I’m going to share a couple stories from […]

Behind the scenes, everything’s working on your behalf

“The only election that really matters? The one in your head. Do you vote for love or fear?”—A tweet I posted a couple weeks ago On September 1992, just days after his dad died, Matthew McConaughey sat on his top bunk in the Delta Tau Delta fraternity and jotted down 10 life aspirations in a […]

The sky’s the beginning

“I am frightened and I am fearless. I am weak and I am a warrior. I am uncertain and I am confident. And by learning to embrace the paradox in all of it, I am more myself.”—Alicia Keys So I read an incredibly inspiring book this weekend. And, no, it wasn’t published by Hay House […]

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 vision board for the planet

“If we don’t use this time for change, we will have missed an insane opportunity.”–Noah Elias This may come as a surprise to some of my readers, but I’ve never been big on vision boards. Mainly because the stuff most people paste on them—fancy cars, oversized houses, etc.–don’t interest me all that much. The things […]
