Amazon Has Everything But What I Need!

If I could order “patience” from Amazon I’d order a double dose expecting to receive it ASAP.  I need this virtue more than ever since immediacy is so much a part of our lives.  Our lives are propelled with insta-everything: on-the-spot photos, quick microwave meals, instant messaging, immediate email notifications, urgent replies, and critical responses. We want and need everything NOW. As our impatience mounts, we whirl out of control. Impatience breeds more impatience with ourselves, and it spills onto others, and then God. We get impatient with ourselves when: We fail to meet standards. We exaggerate the urgency of immediate success. We fail to acquire what we deem we need. We emphasize what we lack rather than what we have. We get impatient with others when: People fail to meet our time expectations. (Grocery lines and fellow drivers come to mind). People fail to see things the way we do. People fail to convert from their old ways of doing things into ways we think are better. People fail to keep up with us physically. We get impatient with God: When we feel the crunch of time. God works on DST – Divine Standard Time, not ours. We think we know what is best for us. We can see how our impatience mounts until it consumes us. Instead of letting it run our lives, destroy our relationships with others and keep us from bonding with God. We need to turn our impatience into patience. Since we are all on the fast-forward pace let’s remember this advice from Joyce Meyer: “Patience is not simply the ability to wait; it’s... read more

Just Breathe!

We are not who we think we are! We are first and foremost spiritual beings. Our wonderful souls infused with our human bodies provide us with all the tools we need on this earthly journey. While our eternal souls “signed up” for this School of Life to learn lessons to be more God-like in love, compassion, patience, tolerance, etc., it is our humanness that allows us to learn. We experience all the emotions, joys and sorrows through our everyday earthly lives. We need both body and soul. Our lives continue in abundance when we keep “body and soul” together! We need connection! How do we find, experience and maintain this connection? How do we enjoy our Divine heritage, being special children of God? Our common breath may be the answer. The breath of life began at birth and continues until the last. When it’s time to “go home”, we draw upon our last inhalation, surrendering our life with our last exhalation. Our breath, that we often take for granted, allows us opportunities to find real peace. Through meditation, stillness and release we are able to tap into who we really are and why we are here on earth. Mother Teresa knew the value of stillness. Her business card read, “In the silence of the heart, God speaks.” She sought silence to help maintain and build that connection. Many of us don’t have time or capacity for traditional transcendental meditation. But we could carve out 10 minutes a day to be still and “connect”.  Quiet yourself and “watch” and listen to your breath come in and out. One breath stops... read more

Never Lose Hope

The long awaited royal wedding day arrived with thousands of onlookers lining the streets to get a glimpse of history. Amid the cheering fans, the BBC interviewer asked a woman, “What does this celebration mean to you?” Her answer: “Hope”. To this woman and many others, this marriage celebrated a union symbolizing hope. We recall Frank Sinatra’s song, “The Best is Yet to Come”.  The lyrics are filled with hope. “The best is yet to come, and won’t that be fine, The best is yet to come, come the day that your mine. Come the day that your mine I’m gonna teach you to fly, We’ve only tasted the wine, Were gonna drain that cup dry.” Hope focuses the expectation of positive outcomes. Hope clears the surrounding darkness as we seek a out way. Hope can take the worst of circumstances and turn them into optimistic recovery. Like a kaleidoscope that twists multicolored pieces of color into artistic formations, our lives become a piece of art. Hope gives us the reassurance that the jagged segments will come together to form something beautiful. Without hope we are lost. “The world needs less heat and more light. It needs less of the heat of anger, revenge, retaliation, and more of the light of ideas, faith, courage, inspiration, joy, love and HOPE. “ – Wilfred Peterson I’m sure you’ve heard the story about the woman who told her pastor that when she died she wanted to be buried with the dessert spoon from her china. This woman knew that dessert is the last course, and the best. She lived knowing that the... read more
