I was determined to find something to assuage the pain and emptiness deep within and left no stone unturned. I would get an idea of where I could find this ever-elusive happiness, put on my bullhorns Continue Reading »

Got wings?

There are so many from our past who only remember us as we were when we knew them. Meanwhile, we have experienced many small shifts and perhaps many very large shifts…we are not the same as when they knew us. Continue Reading »

Your beautiful colors cannot be erased no matter what. No. Matter. What. And sometimes, we see them more clearly when we break open.

Small steps…

I don’t know about you, but I can sometimes forget that we don’t make progress by sitting around waiting for giant leaps but by being willing to consistently take very small steps.

It can sometimes seem like we aren’t making any progress, and then one day, we look back and see just how far we’ve come.

The key is making sure you’re headed in the right direction and then being persistent.

That direction is an inward one for me and has been for a long time. Spiritual progress can’t be measured by looking outside ourselves but is found in one simple question: Do I feel more peaceful? This is how I know I’m headed in the right direction. Nothing else really matters but this.

The beautiful thing I’ve experienced in my spiritual practice is that as I’m willing to take all those tiny steps each day, I often find that I’m suddenly taking quantum leaps!

We practice each tiny note, and at some point, they are no longer seemingly disconnected notes…we play indescribably beautiful music.

I know I post about gratitude quite a bit. I do this because it is possibly the simplest spiritual practice with the most immediate and observable effects. You can be in the crappies one minute and cry tears of joy the next simply by consciously and seriously shifting focus from what you don’t have, what you want (and therefore are lacking), or have lost to the good present here and now.
