Living Well

The Front Line

Posted by on February 11, 2017 at 1:19 am

      I so like to write about current events and how we can respond to them in uplifting and supportive ways.   This is where the rubber meets the road in our spiritual journey….how am I responding? To anything, to anyone…to everything, to everyone?   Our power always lies in our responses, and […]

Our Inaugural Day

Posted by on January 19, 2017 at 3:36 am

      The famous Beatle’s song, “All You Need is Love,” has been pouring through me the last few days. It’s like this current running underneath the ground silently but endlessly.  All we need is love.   When I look at this world I have a choice. I can see how broken down it […]

This Being Human Thing

Posted by on January 14, 2017 at 12:02 am

      This is a great poem by Rumi that is so descriptive of life with emotions:   This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes As an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd […]

The High Road : Our Charge

Posted by on November 9, 2016 at 5:23 pm

      It occurred to me this morning that much of the nation and perhaps many of you feel stuck and frustrated and fearful like I did behind that big truck I wrote about in the last blog.   If the candidate you desired won the election, you might feel relief and you also […]

A New Twist on Acceptance

Posted by on November 8, 2016 at 1:55 am

Yesterday I drove about 1 ½ hours to pick up my son from a music festival east of Austin. It was being held in a forest near a small town. My map took me on a route I had not been on before, and for most of the drive I was on a 2 lane […]

The Wonder of the Moment

Posted by on October 21, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    I’ve been focused lately on being present to what each moment presents to me. I’m being open to what shows up before me, open to the flow of the day, and ready to present my highest self to what or who is right in front of me.   There is so much wonder […]

The Joy of Spiritual Practice

Posted by on September 21, 2016 at 4:47 pm

      As the season begins to make its transition, so too are we transitioning. We are sloughing off the old much like a snake sheds its skin. We are changing, we are becoming, and we are opening.   The world as seen through the eyes of media is quite chaotic. It too is […]

Turning the Final Corner

Posted by on July 25, 2016 at 11:07 pm

    I got so many comments from last week’s blog that it made me realize how we all need encouragement in these wild-n-crazy days. It’s like when you are in a marathon and you are 2/3rds of the way finished…you’re pooped, you haven’t got that second wind yet, and you just need someone to […]

Time to Put on the Cape

Posted by on July 17, 2016 at 3:02 am

        Everything is going to be fine in the world, it really is.  Fear not and put your cape on.   Darkness is merely the absence of Light, nothing more. And Darkness can and will be enveloped by the Light.   Every time you choose to look upon the world or another […]

It’s All For Us

Posted by on May 29, 2016 at 1:41 am

    Do you remember when you were a kid and new at swimming?  And what you wanted so badly was to be able to swim in the deep end of the pool? I sure do! I grew up spending almost every day of the summer at my country club pool in San Antonio.  And […]
