Three holy words for times such as this

“If you’re focused on the how, you’re getting in the way.”—Esther Hicks Like most folks in this country, I’ve been in what you might call a state of shock. I have absolutely no idea what to say, what to do. Some of the things happening right now make NO SENSE to me whatsoever. None. War? […]

Bombarded with miracles

“Your smarts, your talents, your good looks – take off these impediments and let us dance!” — Chelan Harkin Tomorrow, in my playshop with Mike Dooley, I’m going to share “techniques” for widening one’s miracle bandwidth. The term “technique” sounds rather didactic and I’ve never really felt like a “teacher” in any real definition of […]

Appearances, be damned!

“Walk so lightly, my darling. On tiptoes with no luggage, completely unencumbered.”– Aldous Huxley If you’ve been here for awhile, at this celebration known colloquially as a blog, you know I live to share miracle stories. To me, they’re the equivalent of the 4-minute mile. They demonstrate that “hey, maybe there IS another possibility.” Maybe all […]

Bumping into other dimensions

“Forgiveness is man’s deepest need and highest achievement.”—Horace Bushnell Good morning, sports fans. I trust you’re staying toasty, cozy and celebrating the fact that much-needed moisture is falling free of charge from the sky. Talk about a miracle! Today’s Course in Miracles lesson, for those following along, brings up the F word. Forgiveness. As I […]

The absolute must-do right now: Curate your intake

“In the perspective of infinity, our differences are infinitesimal. We are intimately related. May we never even pretend that we are not.”– Mr. Fred Rogers For the next six weeks, I’m participating in a Laddership Pod with 175-some people from 19 countries. Every day, we read a selected reading and then reflect on what it […]

What would a being of light do today?

“If we only knew deeply, absolutely, that our smallest act, our smallest thought, has such far-reaching effects; setting forces in motion; reaching out to the galaxy; how carefully we would act and speak and think. How precious life would become in its integral oneness.”–Irina Tweedie       So let me guess. The question I posed in today’s […]

Who’s on your board of directors?

“Your creator is itching to contact you.” – George Washington Carver One of my first books, commissioned by a national seminar company, was about mentoring — how to be one, how to find one.  SkillPath, the company that hired me to write it, sold it at the seminars they trotted around the country giving. Upon […]

Monday’s Miracle Manifesto

“Give of yourself as freely as you possibly can to eliminate the darkness.”—Tituss Burgess  Good morning, merry miracle makers.  Thought I’d take a moment to share a miracle story that recently came my way. It’s from Tituss Burgess, the Emmy-nominated singer/actor who plays Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s gay, out-of-work roommate.  I became interested in him because […]

Fall in love with the world you can’t even see yet

“Perceptual bias affects nut jobs and scientists alike.”—Martha Beck India won its freedom from British colonial rule in 1947. Mahatma Gandhi, who led the nonviolent battle, used to say, “India will be independent as soon as its people can see it in their own minds.” In other words, they had to focus not on what […]

This could be the best day of your life

“Miracles happen all the time. People just fail to notice them.”–Lorna Byrne Happy Friday, miracle investigators. I trust you’re still enjoying daily miracles. Thought I’d pop by today with this excerpt from my book, Thank & Grow Rich: a 30-Day Experiment in Shameless Gratitude and Unabashed Joy. Needless to say, it means even more to […]
