Day 2?

It feels like day 2 (the day I wrote this, which was 6/2).  Of what, though? Of expectation.  Of excitement.  Of being awake and aware and happy and just... knowing.  Knowing it's all working out.  Knowing it's all as it should be.  Knowing I'm okay and you're okay, and even if we aren't right now, …

Finding Balance II: The Forgotten Conclusion

So sorry for the cliffhanger, guys! I hadn't realized when I posted it that I just... stopped typing, in the middle of a sentence, even.  Not just any sentence, either, but the big conclusion sentence! I decided to make a new post and laugh about it, instead of trying to go back into that energy …

Finding Balance

Warning: Mixed analogies ahead! I was still a little out of balance when I wrote this, and it shows in my writing, but, I can definitely see the change in my thinking, and see it trying to gain momentum, so, instead of deleting this 'in-between' step of getting back into a state of alignment after …

What A Difference 

Friends, meditation should be mandatory at schools and workplaces.  And homes.  And at stoplights. I spent nearly two days pulling at various strings, seeing what pulled free from the snarl of emotions I had going on, and within twenty minutes of stilling my mind, of going to my 'zone', the light switched on.  And that's …

When Is Love Not Love?

Love isn't love when it hurts.  Love doesn't hurt.  Deep down, you know what love feels like.  Acceptance.  Peace.  Joy.   Exhilaration.  Not pain and suffering. If you're in pain, you're not in love. If it's annoying you, you're not loving it. If it outrages you, you're not loving it. If you're not loving it, …

Stop Fighting, Start Loving (Part 2)

If you missed Part 1, you can go back and read it here. How much more would you enjoy your life if nothing around you had to change in order for you to feel good and be happy? I'm not saying every moment would be fluffy bunnies and rainbows, but any moment you want, whether …

Stop Fighting, Start Loving

This is the first part of a two-part post, part 2 of this post can be found here. Poets and singers have been writing and singing about it, painters have been painting it, and human beings all over the world are making it, 24-hours a day... but what is 'love' to you? Have you ever stopped …

A Closer Look At Failure

What is failure? Who decides whether we have, indeed, failed? Who wrote your definitions of success and failure? Was it you?  Was it your parents?  Your teachers?  Your priest?  Your wife?  Or perhaps the ethereal 'they' of society at large? If it isn't your own voice you hear calling you a success or a failure, …
