Stop Doing & Enjoy

It’s such a North American thing to spend a HUGE amount of our waking hours working to ‘get something done’.  There is always a list of things that need doing and only so much time in the day to do them, most of them having nothing to do with fun or living life or enjoyment…

Explore Your World

Unplug, get up, and get out.  It’s not just about being fit, being connected through disconnecting (ah, technology), or getting back in touch with the world around us, it’s opening our eyes to what is actually around us.  We humans have the privilege and curse to be open to more input than just what is…

Original Grace

Rita Nakashima Brock, Journeys By Heart Because the very existence of heart is basic to the structure of human life itself and is the basis of our being broken in relationships, we require connections if we are to acknowledge our own broken heart and be healed.  At the earliest part of our lives we are…

Wanting

Some people fill their lives with want.  Wanting so many things to be different but making no effort to make things different.  Some people use wanting as a way to distract themselves from what they truly need.  They put their efforts into wanting the newest style, gadget, or thing so that they can’t see that…

Is it Luck?

Although we don’t control the Universe, we don’t make the world around us, and we don’t live at the center of everything, we do create a bit of our own reality through how we think and what we believe.  Because how we interact with the world around us is based on our thoughts and beliefs…

Asking is only half of it

You don’t get what you don’t ask for.  Many times we’re given surprise gifts from friends, family, strangers, or just the Universe in general.  But for the most part, if we actually want something, we need to ask for it, even if we just ask ourselves if this is something we’re actually going to do. …
