What Banner Are You Wearing?

      Where is love calling you to risk?   Where is love for self and the other calling you to step up boldly?   Playing small might feel more comfortable…temporarily, until you realize you’ve traded your truth for it.   Sometimes risk looks like silence.  Sometimes risk looks like speaking up.   Listen […]

      I opened the Tao Te Ching today and read:  “Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner.  Do your work, then step back.  The only path to serenity.”   How often do we let the approval of others interrupt our work?  How often do we miss out on opportunities to […]

Observing Self….Path to Enlightenment

      I heard Deepak Chopra say the other day that the highest form of human intelligence is to observe yourself without judgment.   Well hallelujah, yes and amen!   We live in a culture of self-judgment…..of other-judgment….of self-criticism, of other-criticism.   We live in such a “measure-up” performance meta conversation.   We have […]

      “Thank you for everything. I have no complaints about anything.”   Eckhart Tolle says this is one of the highest forms of spiritual practice….to live the above, to make this your way of being in the world.   Gratitude for everything, even if it doesn’t make sense. Even if it doesn’t feel […]

      “Make more decisions in every day. Because a decision is a summoning of life. That’s why a little chaos is good for you, because often you don’t make a decision until you get yourself in a jam. And then, in the middle of the jam, you make a decision, but that decision […]

      This flower is in my back yard.  My dry, dusty, hot Texas backyard.   I looked out the window today and saw this gorgeous being of Light, reaching up towards the sun, displaying the effervescence of Life.   Life just Is.  It doesn’t struggle or strive….it moves and flows and spins.   Life […]
