I guess it is no surprise given my age that so many people I know are caring for aging parents and other loved ones who are in the process of moving on – some might say getting ready to ‘cross over’ or ‘go home’. As many of us know this is often an incredibly […]
Someone recently asked “what does spring mean to you”; after a brief pause I answered it is the cycle of rebirth. And then I realized, perhaps because I am currently rereading Dr. Michael Newton’s Journey of Souls, that the seasons mirror our own cycle of rebirth through time eternal.
The nature lovers and gardeners amongst […]
Each of us is blessed with many lives affording many lessons. Do you wonder about the past lives that you have lived? And if so, do you wonder whether your past is oozing into the present?
From the perspective of those of us who believe in reincarnation and/or who have re-experienced past lives or journeyed […]
My window into eternity opened recently amidst a fairly typical and common experience and I was overcome with tears of joy.
I had the pleasure of reuniting with a colleague who had become a friend. Time, distance, career change and an ocean had intervened to separate us. On the surface it would seem to most […]
You Are A Soul Having A Human Experience
Perhaps you have heard and agree that you are a soul having a human experience and wondered about the implications.
If you accept that you are a soul having a human experience, you are more able to see the brilliance behind how the divine plan is unfolding in […]
Imagine the Infinite
Can you imagine the Infinite? Do you grapple with the idea of ‘life eternal’? Do you understand your place in the cosmic ocean?
These are big questions for certain – but questions which many ponder? For me, these questions are enlivened by the glorious photos, made possible by the Hubble and other space […]
Stroke of Insight
By now you may have already seen Dr Jill Bolte Taylor – on TED, You Tube (below), Oprah or in some other thought forum or read her provocative book “My Stroke of Insight”.
For those who may not, I offer a little background. She is a brain scientist who was working at the […]
Consciousness Survives Death
In order to seriously consider reincarnation, past lives, life between lives or eternal life one must accept that consciousness survives death — a big idea yes, but one which is becoming easier to grasp and more difficult to refute. More on why in a bit. . .
For some time, Western thought and […]
Cloud Atlas Life Lessons
In Cloud Atlas life lessons are provocative and offer much ‘food for thought’! If you haven’t seen it, you should.
Intermittently, a work of art is created that does justice to the complexity and profundity of life; the movie Cloud Atlas does just that and more. It exemplifies the progression of inter-related […]
Amidst this season of holidays and time of merrymaking I hope that you will take some time for quite reflection, meditation and prayer. I share a contemporary favorite of mine.
The Prayer ~~ Carole Bayer Sager & David Foster
I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be […]
Like anyone who takes the time to read this, or more likely, those who don’t even have enough time to read this, my ‘To Do’ List needs pruning!!! One might think that it is the extra demands of the holiday season that put us over the top with commitments but I think the problem […]
A time for gratitude for blessings !
Here we are again, on the cusp of Thanksgiving. It is one of the few times that our culture presses a collective PAUSE button to gather in earnest with hearts filled with gratitude and awareness of our myriad blessings.
My list of things to be grateful for remains virtually unchanged from year to […]
