This is Only a Test

Thursday, April 21, 2016      10 comments

I had to laugh this morning. I am practicing (as in cultivating) my new "take it as it comes" attitude. I am trying to not get easily riled nor reactive to many situations. I am better in some situations than others. The Universe laughed a... Read more

Going Deeper

I am meditating kind of frequently these days, and this time alone has turned out a few thoughts, that I am exploring. I have no problems. This is not to say that things are perfect. They are not. But life is full of circumstances, and abi... Read more

I am only going to write a very short bit because a storm is going wild here, and I want to shut down the computer. I have a couple of gigantic celebrations here, and I will write in greater detail in less stormy weather. 1) I walked 98% o... Read more

The Lies We Tell Ourselves

Friday, January 29, 2016      10 comments
