We all have Power Places… these are the places that renew and restore and reawaken us. One of my Power Places is a local hot springs. I do my best to get up there at least once a month.
I was there on Thursday and could feel the infusion of Cosmic and Gaian Energy clearing, cleansing and refilling me.
After a beautiful night sleeping ou [...]
A long time ago in a mountainous region of China a farmer lived with his wife and son. He was known to the rest of the villagers as both wise and a little odd. They couldn’t quite understand him but they knew that he would always provide excellent advice in difficult situations.

Most of us wouldn’t want to live in a home that was filled with dirt and dust and trash.

Knowing the answer to these questions and mastering this skill is very importan [...]
I admit that there have been times in my life (like yesterday for instance!) when I’ve taken this whole Spiritual-Growth-Awakening-Transformation thing a bit too seriously!
Maybe you know what I’m talking about… carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders can feel pretty darn serious!

There’s a little patch of blue shining through the low clouds hanging over the headlands.
I’m sitting by the window at my favorite new restaurant out at the coast. The Russian River is across the street. The Pacific Ocean is just around the bend.
A flock (is that what you call it) of cormorants are splashing and playing across the river.

You have a powerful and unique Divine Gift.
You were born with the seed of this Divine Gift within you.
The events of your life – the good, the bad and yes, even the ugly – have provided the fertile ground for this Divine Gift to grow.
And now the time has come to for you to fully own this Divine Gift and share it with others… and with [...]
“Duda, where’s Bapa?” Ella asked. (Duda is the name Ella calls me!)
“I think he’s napping again.” I replied.
“He sleeps a lot.”
