Don’t Resist What Is!

We start out in life with high hopes, even higher expectations, and the knowledge that everything in life will go as planned. We make decisions based on our hopes and dreams around our lifetime goals – schools, spouses, employment, and retirement.   But somehow life has a way of dashing our game plan. Education may not be what we thought it would be. Marriages, fail. Jobs come and go. And retirement somehow wasn’t the cruise we signed up for…but it IS the ship we’re on! Don’t let disappointments pollute your mind. We must be aware that our outside circumstances have nothing to do with our inside happiness – what really matters. Our happiness is not a goal, attained once and for all. Happiness is finding that joy in the present situation on our journey to fulfillment. There is no one way to happiness. Sometimes we put off happiness until…until we are out of school, until we are married, until we have children, until the children leave, until the divorce is final, until you pay off the house, until you get a promotion, until you retire… Alfred D. Souza put it in perspective, “For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.” These situations, for better or worse, are the building blocks of our lives. And as... read more

Give Me A Break!

In the maze at the DMV to apply for the new driver’s license, I was sent to desk number 5. Before I sat down I noticed this sign on my clerk’s desk, reading, “Please be patient, I am Training”. With patience being on my short list, I took heed especially in this stressful process of slow moving office workers shuffling mounds of paper amidst throngs of dazed driver applicants. You know the drill… How wise of the “new guy” to post this reminder to all of us. Maybe we should all post this on our foreheads. Be patient, we are ALL in training for our life’s work. Our mission in life is growing into the likeness of God, taking on his inner disposition being transformed to shine our Divine nature. Being patient, kind, forgiving, tolerant, honest, grateful, charitable, humble, compassionate and resilient! That’s a tall order, not only for a morning spent at the DMV, but for every day, every occasion.   We have all made our fair share of wrong turns and spent more than enough time on dead-end streets. None of those mistakes is any surprise to God. After all, as our maker, God knows we are slow learners. All that God asks is that we not look backward but get up and try again. We cannot be afraid of these “failures”. This give-and-take, the falling-down and getting-up, the forgiving and being forgiven in our daily lives will allow us to grow into our best selves. The fabric of greatness of goodness is woven out of ordinary thread.  It is woven very slowly and always by hand. ... read more

What Are the Best Doctors in the World?

In his last year on this earth, Steve Jobs reflected on life. “The best six doctors in the world are sunlight, rest, exercise, diet, self-confidence and friends.” As smart as Steve Jobs may have been, I think he missed a most significant power.  Although those six are important forces in any life, I would have to add “faith” to that list. With faith being just as strong and just as consistent, it can be a life-changer reducing stress and worry.  Faith is so powerful they even say, “Faith can move mountains.” Your faith is power pulling peace out of conflict, abundance out of lack, meaning out of sorrow, and peace of mind out of doubt. Faith can comfort you with peace in the midst of conflict.When the chaos and stress of daily living weigh you down you can go deep inside of your soul, finding peace in your Divine connection, your Rock. “Come to me, all of you that are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) Faith can discover abundance in lack. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they do have. Jobs, money and position don’t ensure happiness nor do they ensure true abundance. “My cup runneth over.” (Psalm 23:5) Faith can give you meaning in the midst of sorrow. God did not promise us an easy journey breezing through life. But he did promise a safe return. Earth is a Life School teaching us valuable lessons for our personal growth and good.  “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,... read more
