Equanimity – one of my favorite words and a state I have aspired to for some time; one beautiful word that captures the condition of mental calmness, balance, composure and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation. Equanimity’s synonyms read like the effects of a life in silent retreat – composure, calm, level-headedness, […]

I know many people who seek to be enlightened and who desire to live in an enlightened society, not surprising in my various roles at Soul Source.  Some have reached the point in realization where they discover that a major impediment is the personal ego with its never ending striving and its countless attachments.

The last days of spring have slipped away setting the stage for the farms and gardens to awaken. The efforts of those who till the soil are beginning to bear fruit, literally and figuratively; farmers’ markets offering early yields, flower beds and planters awash in color and texture.

Soul Family

I attended a funeral today and was brought to tears not out of grief but out of joy for the love connecting members of one soul family.

The announcement of the service hinted that there might be a story behind the obvious death of my friend Susan’s mother. I wondered at the time what led […]

Soul’s Journey

I was recently asked what accounted for my decision to shift career focus onto the soul’s journey to merge in the oneness of SOURCE. While it was neither an immediate nor pain free transition, once it occurred I found the greatest delight in thinking, meditating and talking to others about our respective soul’s journey […]

Life Goals

My dear friend’s 19 year old niece Carolyn died last month after battling cancer. Soon after, her mom, finding comfort sitting in her daughter’s room, found a list of life goals that Carolyn had compiled.

Paradoxes all around . . .

I was driving to the train station during a recent snow storm and saw a man wrapped in a blanket standing outside his tent under a highway overpass. I gasped and uttered “he doesn’t need to be there.” Having worked on behalf of the homeless for half of my […]
