When You're Most Needed

When you're most needed is when times are hard. In good times, everyone is there to enjoy them, but most disappear during the hard times, when they're most needed.

Let Beauty Captivate You

In this moment, there is something beautiful that could captivate you. It might be the view from your window, or a song on your computer or cell phone, or words of wisdom you could obtain from a search engine. Many of life's joys come in tiny doses and you could make this the moment you receive one.

I Ate My Weight In Chocolate Cake

At a recent party, it felt like I ate my weight in chocolate cake. Reality was it was a large piece. But for many years, I ate little pastry. At 71, I'm being more flexible, realizing that occasional cake won't hurt me and it will add to life's joy. Now of course, I feel compelled to burn off that cake with exercise.

You Are Ageless

Inside, you as a spiritual being are ageless and timeless, as you may already have discovered. But on the outside, living this life, you grow older each day. But age offers greater wisdom, and the blessing of living a longer life, a blessing many people will not receive. Be grateful.

The Two Party Momopoly

In the U.S. we have a two political party monopoly and it serves us poorly. Yet we have wonderful third parties that receive nearly no media coverage, almost no money and little attention. Please join me in voting for their ideas and candidates, for it is here, the best of our political future lives.

Trying To Please Everyone

Trying to please everyone will only frustrate you, because not everyone thinks as you do. Instead, please yourself by following your heart, and you'll discover that you're touching the hearts of some others as well.

Follow Your Own Path

Most people are so compelled to receive the approval of others, that they lose the essence of who they are. We are on a common journey, but your path is your own, and it is the only one that can bring you fulfillment.
