Challenges and the Journey: We GOT this!

January 28, 2013

Comments Off on Challenges and the Journey: We GOT this!

Yesterday, I spoke about The Journey and how my perspective with regard to it was enhanced by my recent trip to New Orleans… We are ALL – every single one of us – on a spiritual journey; a “hero’s” journey, as it were and every challenge we encounter along the way is a part of that […]

Journeying: A Perspective of One Traveler

January 27, 2013

2

One of the most profound lessons I learned last weekend… REALLY learned… was the idea that it’s ALL about the Journey and NOT the destination.  One that Rev. Meg of the Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF), who headed the trip to New Orleans, began reinforcing from the beginning, even before we departed for Louisiana. […]

Peace As A Process

January 14, 2013

9

I’m low on energy this morning. I was low on energy yesterday too. How can I tell? I can tell by the fact that Ego – that little voice that likes to criticize and nit-pick and complain – is carrying out its business in stentorian style this morning. The messages cascading through my mind are […]

Surrender: My Own Musings

January 13, 2013

4

My meanderings… the bits of wisdom I’ve been guided to, which have spanned across this grand and beautiful web we are so fortunate to have access to have seemingly begun to center around one theme in particular as of late – surrender. I return to Kozo’s post on Everyday Gurus with regard to surrender and […]

Bloggers For Peace: The Secret to Peace

January 8, 2013

9

The other day, as I was catching up in this part of the blogosphere that I share with all of you, I happened to come across the blog Everyday Gurus and Kozo’s idea for a network of bloggers to blog about peace in 2013.  I thought this was a GREAT idea!  What better way to […]

A Journey Toward Healing

December 3, 2012

2

Greetings, dear friends. I am coming to you on my iPad this morning from the extreme comfort of my bed. The past week has been a particularly intense one for me. A surge of spiritual growth, the likes of which I cannot say I’ve experienced in sometime. One, which I strongly suspect has landed me […]

Another Look At Gratitude

November 14, 2012

Comments Off on Another Look At Gratitude

The day has the potential to be a very busy one, however, I am happy to say that the service I will be presenting to the Fellowship tonight is done!  (And for that… I am most grateful!) Admittedly, I procrastinated.  I didn’t start writing and organizing it until this morning.  Why?  Especially when things are […]

Daily Prompt Answered: Be the Change

November 12, 2012

9

Originally, I had planned to write about Spirit Speak – the ways in which Spirit speaks to us – particularly with regard to totem/power animals.  That was until I started WordPress up this morning and came across the Daily Prompt. Now, there have been times when I’ve popped in to have a look and the […]

So What? – Wisdom From My Dad

November 5, 2012

2

Thursday was a really challenging day for me…  One thing or another seemingly tried to push me down and keep down.  If it weren’t for my husband, who has been helping to keep me as sane as humanly possible for over twenty years now, I don’t know what I would have done. He helps me to […]

Being In This World, Not of It

November 2, 2012

7

Be in this world, but not of it. It’s a concept that I am trying really hard to implement in my own life.  It’s not easy, though, I realize.  It’s a balancing act really.  (There we go, again.  Isn’t that what I already told you it all comes down to for me?  Balance.) I find it difficult. […]

Calm Amidst the Storm

October 29, 2012

1

Fear. It’s something that has seized hold of all of us at one time or another.  As I mentioned to someone else most recently, I used to be so filled with fear that I had a perpetual knot in my stomach.  I can only look back at that time in my life and wonder how […]

Balance: A Conscious Decision

October 26, 2012

1

With November quickly approaching and NaNoWriMo riding its coat tails, I’ve plunged into the process of preparation this week.  I’ve been inspired. In-spirit.  My inner child delighting in world and character creation.  I know this because my days – with the girls at school – have quickly flown by.  Time has seemingly lost all integrity. […]

Goodbye To Perfection: Just Do It!

October 22, 2012

2

This morning, I downloaded Evernote onto my computer.  I have it on my iPad and my laptop, but had yet to add it to this computer.  I made the decision to get organized (again) where my writing is concerned.  Many “plot bunnies” are beginning to hop all about me, and I don’t want to misplace […]

Control: Fear Cleverly Disguised

October 21, 2012

2

Control. For many of us, much time and energy are wasted on the illusion of it. Originally, I was going to write about ‘faith’ and the difficulty I have in learning to have it.  Faith in the Universe, in others, in mySelf.  Yet, as I began to dig deeper within, I realized one thing.  The […]

The Clue By Four and A Blog Award

October 18, 2012

12

I am a fiercely independent individual. Perhaps, it has something to do with my nature.  I am an Aries, after all.  Or maybe it is given that, as a child, I was an only child or even a latch-key kid in the early years of my life.  It might even be due to the fact that, […]

Blog Action Day 2012: The Power of We

October 15, 2012

2

The Power of We.  It is an awesome thing to behold; to be experienced.  Anyone who has attended a sporting event, whether it be on the school level or professional, has likely experienced it first hand. One only need sit in the stands as fans cheer their favorite team onto victory.  The energy.  The power […]
