Choosing the Peace of God





“Anxiety comes from the unpredictability of the ego.”



I heard this said the other day in a talk I was listening to and it so resonated with me.  Anxiety is always about the next moment isn’t it?  What might happen?  What will I do?  Will I be okay?  Will they be okay?



These are all thoughts of the ego or finite mind.  These thoughts live in time….actually the ego can only live in time, not the now.  The mind of God or your true Self can only exist Here and Now, dimensionless and timeless.  Infinite and Eternal.



The ego mind is unpredictable.  You never know what thought might arise and then what body sensations might follow that thought.  Anxiety is never a part of our true nature.  So when an anxious thought arises we can know that it’s always coming from an activity of ego.  I don’t know about you, but just knowing this is helpful.



“Oh, ahh, this isn’t mine.  This isn’t about me.  I (my True Self) am one with God, one with Love and one with Peace.”



This space from the anxious thought is an amazing resource in the moment.  This space, this recognition, this pause, gives us the opportunity to decide what we will align with.



You can even ask, “On whose behalf are you arising?” to the thought.  If the thought is not peaceful or if it’s about the past or the future and anxiety is present, you can know it’s from the finite mind, which is always trying to figure things out.



For me, in this moment, I decide, I choose.  Do I want to align with Truth or do I want to continue to listen to what is false?



There’s a great line from A Course in Miracles that says, “You always choose between your weakness and the strength of Christ (God, Source, Love, Divine) in you.  And what you choose is what you think is real.”



It’s completely wonderful, in a moment of anxious thought, to make a choice.  To ask Supreme Source for help.  This is who you are One with anyway.  Separation is the game of the ego, hence fear is its norm.  But we are not alone, we are not separate and we never have been!



Fear comes only because in that moment we don’t remember that we are One with All Love and Peace.



We are always being taken care of.  Always.



Ask to think the thoughts of the Divine.  Ask to see only what Truth sees, which is your innocence and wholeness every time.  Nothing else is ever true.



The reason Jesus “healed” is because he only had the thoughts of God.  He established himself in the Truth as you and I are doing, and eventually he came to only think and see Truth:  wholeness, oneness, peace, love, light.



And all of this is available Here and Now, always.  This Truth, this Peace, is the ever-present background of all experience.  It is your True nature.



So this is our choice!  In every moment we can choose to listen to the ego or to be established in Peace.  Surrender and ask for help.



I’ve been contemplating lately, “I have only the thoughts of God.”



Now that is juicy!!!


So much love to you all,

You Don’t Need a Tesla to be in Space



We can probably all agree that the latest space launch of the red Tesla is impressive!  But I gotta say, Elon Musk doesn’t have anything on us.


Space.  Spaciousness.  Stillness.  Silence.  Openness.  Freedom.


These are not only accessible to us, they ARE us.  How fabulous…you don’t have to be an astronaut to travel to space.  It’s already here.


In today’s Morning Vox I discuss how to recognize and dwell in and as space.  This is our natural freedom.

Deep love and appreciation for each of you!

The Intelligence of the Sloth




So I’m wondering if you have learned how and when to implement the Sloth Mode?


Sloth Mode is my latest self-assignment…when things get too fast paced and I think I have too much to do, I do the opposite of what the body-mind is telling me. When I feel crunched on time and my list is too long, or when I’ve just simply been moving too fast in a day, multi-tasking out the wazoo, I make a choice to go into what I have coined Sloth Mode.


No, I don’t crawl across the floor or roadway excruciatingly slow like a sloth does.No, I don’t reach for my pen or glass at a snail’s pace like a sloth does.


But what I do do is slow everything down substantially. And yes, that includes movements. I start walking slower…like I have all the time in the world, cause I do.


I slow my body down by slowing down my breathing, by slowing down my movements, and by slowing down in whatever I am engaged with.


It’s incredible the results! Once you slow the body down you create space. You can breathe, think, be, enjoy.


Sloth Mode is nothing short of a miracle. There is something about doing the opposite of your inclination when you feel rushed, pressed for time, and stressed because of all you feel you need to accomplish.


Instead of rushing or going faster because you feel hurried, slow down.


Instead of driving like a wild person, slow down the car.


You slow down the engines of the body and the mind. Yes, it’s counter-intuitive but it’s rockin awesome.


Time, living by the constraints of time, is our choice. It’s a construct that our body-mind follows. It’s our programming–what we have become used to and what we have thought was normal.


But we do have a choice about it.  We can choose to live in a spacious place, believing everything that needs to get done will, and knowing that everything always works out perfectly.


We can live in Now which is very different than time. Now is spacious. Now is borderless. Now is the place of creativity and manifestation. Now is timeless, dimensionless. Now is eternal, infinite.


Now is truly our home and our natural state.


When I go into Sloth Mode I am choosing Now. I am choosing Life. I am saying no more to the demands of the body-mind ever urging me to produce more, do more, accomplish more.


When did that all start anyway? Ha!


Sloth Mode is fantastic, I love it, and it’s totally growing on me.


When you feel the pace of the rat race coursing through your body, slow down your movements. Slow down anything that you are involved with. You might even just sit down for one minute, close your eyes, and be still.


It’s a reset. I do this throughout my day anyway. I sit down and just center in. It’s wonderful.


And there is something extra amazing about doing this when you “think” you don’t have time for it. It’s like this magical space opens up and things expand. You can see what you couldn’t see, and you can actually truly enjoy the present moment.


If you will be slow and deliberate and move consciously throughout your day you will enjoy Life so much more. And you will be absolutely amazed when you see that whatever is important on your list still gets done, and you still get to where you need to be….All is well.


So especially in this Christmas season when you might seem to have a bit more or a lot more on your plate, this is the perfect time to practice Sloth Mode.


Have fun with it!


The next time you feel rushed or pressed, slow down and see what happens. See how your body responds and see what opens up for you.


Okay just for kicks here is an Alpha Romeo sloth commercial:

With Love and Gratitude,


I Am Here




Hey There,


I just want to pop in with a short post tonight and an audio from one of my favorites.


Stillness.  Silence.  Rest.  Peace.  This is our True Nature.


It’s not far off or out of reach.  It’s right here, always, now.  Nothing to grasp or attain or find or get.


And it can’t be lost or taken away or destroyed.


People think that Peace has to be cultivated or attained…”If only I can get past this or let go and clear this old memory out, if only I can heal this one wound, if only I can become a more spiritual person…”


You Are Peace.  The background of all experience is stillness, quiet, rest, peace.  When all the activities cease, and we finally slow down, we then notice this stillness.  And often we think that it shows up when we stop, but actually it’s there all along.  It is the aware Presence that is the very core of what we are.  All activity arises out of this still quiet being.


And it just takes a moment to recognize it and to abide knowingly in it, as it.  It is the most real thing about you.


Here is a powerful audio from a woman named Gangaji.  I invite you to set aside 8 minutes to be with this…to listen and be still.  This is transformative but not necessarily best while in activity or busy.  Give yourself the gift of 8 minutes today to hear this.  It’s one you can come back to over and over or perhaps each morning.


I Am Here  :


Knowing the Truth of who you are is so important.  We get to choose what we put our attention on:  human separateness or infinite eternal being.


Enjoy Gangaji.


Enjoy your Self.


With so much Love,








Fall Update



Hey There!


Well, it’s been almost 4 months since I last posted a blog, vlog or audio, and I thought it a good idea to send out a little update on some stuff.


As you can see from the photo above, I was in the Cayman Islands for awhile over the summer and thoroughly enjoyed the ocean calm and peace.  This photo was taken on our last evening.  We picked up some dinner and went and sat on this lovely wall eating and relaxing.  The water below is crystal clear and we saw the coolest blowfish wandering around below us.


Here is another from the trip, right outside our condo.  There is just something about this water, so pristine and such clarity.  Ahh, like our True Selves, untouched, unblemished and undisturbed.




We snorkeled every day we were there and sometimes more than once.  We discovered some amazing new places, all right from the shore.  We swam with wild sea turtles, large sting rays, huge groupers, and the ever subtle and mysterious tarpons that lurk about.


This water, this underwater universe, has characterized my life for so long and especially so of late.  The idea of a “deep dive” and a deep exploration of this totally incredible undersea world feels so apropos to my spiritual life.  I feel like I’ve hit the bottom of Truth and now will spend the rest of this life exploring that, teaching that, pointing to that.  The application of Truth to the conditioning of the mind, to the personality structure, and to the constrictions of the body, is a most wondrous and expansive and magical process that takes place in the eternal moment of Now.


I’ve come to realize more than ever that there really isn’t anything or anyone to become…we are That already and always.  It really is more of an undoing and unwinding of all that stands in the way of the Truth of who we are.  I am not all that great at articulating what is in my heart right now–it’s too big to put into words and too vast to try to explain sometimes.  When I talk about it it often falls short because it can’t be contained in our words….it is boundless and borderless and infinite.


I think this is why great teachers often just stay silent, because silence better represents the Truth of “all that is” than words can.  How can beauty be put into words?  How can Love?  Have you ever tried to describe your love for someone or something to another and felt that anything you said was just inferior to the experience in your heart?


But the best part is that Truth is true always.  It never leaves, even for a moment.  Nothing to grasp or cling to because it can never fade or leave.  This is the ground of our being.  It’s stillness itself.  Peace.  Happiness.  Love.


So the nature of my work at this time is to support people in realizing what is True.  It’s deep work but actually so simple.  Everyone knows who they are but often they just need some reminding and someone to assist them in finding the way home.  And from this place then accepting and allowing all sensations and feelings to be just as they are, no storyline needed.


I am so grateful to each of you!  You are such beautiful beings, thank you so much for blessing my life.  I hope to hear from you–please let me know how you are.   xoxo


I have updated the photos on my website…yes, all from this recent trip to Cayman.  The prior photos needed updating, and I have included my sons as well.  You can see those at

Will You Be Fueled for the Light?


Hey Friends,


Please listen to this voice recording today.  I just recorded this, right on the heels of an experience I had reading a story about Dr. Justine Damond.  This is very important for today’s times and issues.  I felt very inspired to record this.


We are at such a pivotal time in our human experience, and how we choose every day is so important to the future we are creating.

I would LOVE your comments and/or questions!


We ARE always being the change we wish to see.


Great love,




The Morning Vox : Celebration of Life




Hi Friends,


Today’s Vox is a commentary on a spiritual exercise that I encourage us all to play with.  Every time I watch a Grand Slam tennis final I am inspired…so many messages inherent in this wonderful game.


I hope you will listen to this short message and try out the exercise on body posture.  Engage this with awareness and presence and I think you will be really surprised at how powerful it can be for you.  And listen…listen to your heart. Listen to what comes up for you.  Make it a moment of connection with All That Is.


Allow these two simple practices to be gateways to something new.

Let me know how it goes for you!!






The Bounty of New Views




There is incredible value and bounty when we are willing to see a situation from different points of view.


Like really see it, with openness and an acceptance of it’s validity.


This takes getting off the ego perspective and embracing something much more sacred.


This spiritual practice is a healthy component to fostering relationships of vitality as well as integrating our experiences in life.


Hope you enjoy today’s message!
