“I pray for the change in perception that will let me see bigger and sweeter realities.” –Ann Lamott My favorite thing in the whole world is miracles. I’ve been a student of ‘A Course in Miracles’ for 25 or so years. The TV series I created is set in an ecovillage called Milagro Springs. Milagro, […]
“Don’t worry. Be happy.” –Bobby McFerrin Okay, so you’ve made some goals, set some intentions. But, so far, nothing has shown up. Wanna know why? You’re trying too hard. You’re trying to force things instead of just relaxing and connecting with the power and genius of the universe. See this picture. It’s green bean seeds […]
“What is the most important thing we can think about in this most extraordinary moment?”–Buckminster Fuller
“Seek the highest that is in you.” –Lundbergh The quality of our life is in direct proportion to the questions we ask. If we ask important questions, we’ll get important answers. The universe will always match us question for question, answer whatever it is we ask. So why not ask big questions, think big thoughts? […]
“The world is only in the mind of its maker.” –Course in Miracles Who in their right mind would walk into a restaurant, take a look at the menu and then order the dish they least desire? Likewise, who would go shopping at Nordstrom’s and opt to carry the rack’s ugliest outfit up to the […]
What distinguishes the people who are living their dreams and those who are not? Thoughts, nothing but thoughts.
Here it is, 4:30 my time, and the day has gotten away from me. Like every day, miracles have lined up to greet me and blessings have called out my name. As I get ready for next week’s South Pacific adventure to the Cook Islands, I’d like to share this quote from Rhonda Byrne who […]
“In dreams there are no impossibilities.” –Janos Arany Caryn Johnson always knew she wanted to be an actor. In fact, she says her first coherent thought was, “Man, I’d love to act.” Even though she grew up in the New York projects, theater and what she called “pretending to be somebody else” was a big […]
Once, in a three-bedroom pension in Austria, I got locked in a tiny bathroom. I hollered out to my hosts, “Help! I can’t open the lock.” They spoke no English so obviously they didn’t rush to my aid. Instead, they probably scratched their head, wondering what the crazy American girl was yammering about so early […]
We simply must get over the notion that there is reluctance on the part of Infinite Intelligence to provide our good.
Chris Michaels, a handsome and very wise Science of Mind minister, told a great story a few weeks ago. He explained that when you make an intention (or pray or send out a ‘rocket of desire,’ as LOA students might call it), you must act with authority. You must KNOW that your words and consciousness […]
Iran, writing a TV series and walking around the world with a teddy bear: the perks of being a writer
On my list of top three things I love about being a writer is that I get emails from readers. These joyful notes that show up unexpectedly in my inbox come from all over the world, constantly piquing my curiosity with, “How in the heck did that nanny from Iceland find my breathing book?” I […]
“How is none of your business.” —Edwene Gaines Jeannie worked a minimum wage job as a clerk at a discount store. She heard this rumor that prosperity was possible to anyone who made it a conscious intention, anyone who took the time to write down what they’d “love to do.” She didn’t really buy it […]
