      “Nonresistance, non judgment, and nonattachment are the three aspects of true freedom and enlightened living.” Eckhart Tolle   This is just one of those “pause and think on that” kind of quotes.   One of those take a deep breath and receive the truth kind of quotes.   These words, this energy, […]

      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 […]

Honored
