Shine On!

We are not who we think we are! We are not defined by what we do for a living, where we live, what is in our bank account or who people think we are. “When we’re growing up there are all sorts of people telling us what to do, when what we really need is space to work out who to be.”  Ellen Page So who are we REALLY? There is a part of each of us that is divine. There are moments when our “Higher Self” is trying to emerge through our overwhelmed thoughts. Amid the static, our divine nature shines through.  “Who we are to be” is our calling to connect with our “Higher Self”. It is simple. It is God who has always been inside of us waiting to meet us. We meet God in many ways while fulfilling our mission on earth, our destiny just being true to ourselves. On our journeys, our souls are calling us, leading us through the thicket of daily life to shine, share, and illuminate this divinity inside of us. Our journeys may differ. There are many roads to the kingdom, and not one right way to get there. As we look back on our lives we can see the subtle ways that our souls are pulling us to discover one thing:  who we really are – divine children of God. Neale Donald Walsch describes a soul true unto itself: Heaven is not a kingdom where you pay homage to someone else. It is a kingdom where you greet yourself as royalty.  It is this “aha” moment that takes a lifetime... read more

Find Your Beach

Love that Corona beer commercial reminding us of an important key to happiness – the ability to disengage. What a waste of time and energy we expend! Most of our stamina during the day is spent on things/activities that don’t really matter. We are bombarded with pressures to accomplish this, acquire that and measure up to someone else’s standard. We go to bed at night with our minds racing of yet what we need to do, feeling that whatever we have accomplished is not enough. Our poor souls are flooded with the misguided notion we need to do “more”. Why don’t we remember who we really are and why we are really here? Besides the mental ambush, we are bombarded with “notifications”. Our peace and quiet is disturbed with beeps, ring tones, chimes, horns and a host of other alerting sounds calling us to more action. Sometimes we need to take a vacation to “get away”…get away from our normal routine to put things in bigger perspective. We need some “me time” some “alone time”.  When we can “get away”, all the items on the “to do” list seem a little less important. With a travel vacation we find new surroundings, different people, and diverse milieu, we are forced out of our rut and jolted into a new awareness, like a breath of fresh air. The pressures gripping us release, our shoulders may drop and we exhale experiencing true peace. But instead of waiting for a yearly getaway, I think we need to carve out “beach time” during EACH of our busy days. What gives you peace? How do you... read more

Where Oh Where Is Love?

Love, like beauty, might be in the eye of the beholder: Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.’ – Chris – age 7 Finding the answer to this question is a lifetime quest.  We sing about it, read about it, write about it and consume ourselves in this constant search for love. Oh to love and be loved in return. Sometimes we misunderstand it. We keep confusing the cheap imitations with the real thing. Infatuation, sentimental tears, the teenage crush, passion, that warm cozy feeling – all very nice, but they’re not love. To love is to give a piece of one’s heart and not look back. Love sticks around on the good days and the bad ones. It does what needs to be done and never holds back. Love’s work is done in tiny pieces and can be done even by the smallest of us. Love has its bad days when its heart is cold and there few cheery thoughts to warm it. But even then, love does not falter and does not take back that piece of the heart that it gave away. Love’s work is never done, and its yield is never ending. Let’s give our hearts to one another and never take them back. I think maybe this child’s definition of love sums it up: ‘When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love. -Rebecca- age 8 Love is giving... read more
