Drink from the Well
Life is filled with distractions - our to do list and our not to do list. So many are drowning in a sea of inner voices - shoulds, shouldn’ts, couldn’ts, can’ts, anger, resentment, worry, and regret. These limiting feelings are the resistance which is pinching off the natural flow of love, creativity, wisdom and joy.
An undercurrent of sacred experience is ready to rise to fullness across the globe today. Some do this through yoga, others through prayer and meditation, and others through spending time in nature. The common theme is getting still if not in the body, at least in the mind.
Jalaludin Rumi said, "There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen." Buried beneath our many layers of protection lies that voice. I refer to it as the still small voice of God, the voice of my being. Spending time in the silence, we gather the prodigal parts of ourselves. In this way, we celebrate the good that is present while acknowledging work that is yet to do.
This shift across the globe is urging us to a deeper experience of life itself. What might we do as individuals to participate more fully in the awakening of spirituality around the globe? The first step is that we must make time for a practice of spiritual connection. Life is meant to be lived with great awareness. When we are alert there is an inner opening preparing the ground for a deeper life.
The next step is that we must carry our higher thoughts into inspired action. Have you ever began meditating on patience only to be interrupted moments later? Life has a way of presenting us with opportunities to put our heartfelt intentions into practice. When faced with conflict we must ask ourselves, "Do you want to be right, or do you want to wake up?" By making time for a spiritual practice and then taking inspired action, we get to experience our selves as the compassionate, loving and wise beings that we are.
As we live more consciously, we allow ourselves to be guided by our hearts. It is only then that we will be able to create a balanced, sustainable and loving planet for all to enjoy. Through drinking deeply of life you will discover the magnificence that lies at the core of your being. What unique wisdom is yours to share? I support and encourage you as you rediscover this precious voice within you and share it lovingly and generously in all areas of your life.

Celebration of Light

As we approach winter, the days grow shorter and colder. At this time of year, few things offer more comfort than the warm glow of a candle. Whether in homes, churches, temples, or mosques, we light candles to observe holidays, to commemorate events, and to usher in an awareness of a holy presence...
