Kicking Unhealthy Habits

Kicking Unhealthy Habits

I don't know if you can relate, but I've struggled with excess on and off my whole life. Excess alcohol, excess cigarettes (thank God that habit got snuffed out 40 years ago or I'd be dead by now), excess sugar, excess pizza ... just plain excess in the consumption...

Simplicity

Simplicity

What a surprise after 40 years walking the spiritual path, to suddenly discover myself no longer interested in the journey of seeking something "better," "higher" or "purer." How strange, after all the years of spiritual struggle, to discover that the same rules...

Only Human? Ha!

Only Human? Ha!

"But I'm only human." Were more silly words ever spoken? Human beings are love made real. We're the whole package—the whole guacamole—the divine spark of eternal life, spirit and flesh (at least what appears to be flesh!), intuition, emotions, fiery imagination,...

Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones

These are bizarre, turbulent, upsetting and, frankly, downright scary times. Humanity is at a turning point that has been a long time coming—a turning point all of us, consciously and unconsciously, having been dreaming into existence for thousands of years. The time...

Healing Division

Healing Division

Your point of view and my point of view are equally "right" and equally insignificant facets in the dazzling holographic diamond of inter-radiant opposites. Whatever is, the opposite also is, simultaneously arising. Yet neither of these little flickers of local light...

Spirit running free

Spirit running free

I am discovering it’s enough to be me. I mean, what else can I be? Wait! Don’t answer that! It seems obvious. But it’s a trick question. Beyond those first precious months of life here on this earth when our eyes shine with the light of Who We Truly Are and we laugh...

Which Path Are you On?

Which Path Are you On?

Many years ago, when I first stepped onto the spiritual path, I left my husband and my television career to go off and live alone in a one-room cabin in the mountains of north Georgia. No electricity. No running water. No neighbors. Just me, two dogs, a cat, and a...
