I woke up this morning with such a feeling of gratitude that I am alive, in a perfectly wonderful body, able to watch an incredible unfolding of events, and participate in a change of worlds. I know there are people who feel like they don’t belong in 3D, where there is pain, and inhumanity. It feels so abusive, and they dream of going ‘home’. I understand the longing, but I’m not into the idea that home is somewhere other than where I am.
I’m at home within my universe, acknowledging this journey as the ultimate experience. Where else would I want to be? Now, people might say that none of this experience is reality. That’s fine. If I’m an actor on the stage, then I’m putting my heart and soul into the play. This play is where the action is. Continue reading
Just sending you a note to let you know I’ve published another book. It’s a compilation of the most recent blogs, and hopefully the best. Of course everything can be accessed in electronic form, but there still are people who like to read while not in front of a computer. Also, there are those of us who recognize that a day may come when we don’t have our Internet anymore, and libraries will mean a lot. Continue reading
My thoughts today are on the babe in the manger… beginning with a snapshot from my childhood. At the age of eight or nine I did most of the things that my well-intentioned parents wanted, but I had started to think and question and resist what I didn’t understand. Fear wasn’t born at that moment of resistance, but it was recognized: “I’m afraid, but I still can’t stand up and say that Jesus is in my heart.”
Where was fear born? For me it must have come with the concept of conditional love. This was the dilemma, as it was for a whole lot of us as children I suspect… do we think about things and question what we are given, and risk losing ‘God’s love’ and/or the approval of our parents, family, teachers, friends, society and so on?

There are times when we say, “No one will ever truly know me but me.” I suppose those are the moments we would call lonesome or melancholy. Still, when it comes to being known, we may shut down a little too quickly. I think there is more ‘knowing’ going on than we realize, considering how our individual universes intermingle, when we love.
Our joy is found in creating, and we offer our creations to others of the One that is all of us… for the good, we intend, to heal our separations. As we talk about oneness and even attempt to live in alignment with the concept, it’s obvious that thousands of years won’t be overcome in one giant leap. Respect is a great place to begin, though.

“We enter the world with something and leave with something.” That’s pretty cut-and-dried. Is it true? Could it be that the precious little baby with the unique spirit came in with zero, zilch, nothing? Could it be that the old woman, no longer breathing, ends right there – zero, zilch, ‘is no more’?
Of course not… and I’m confident you don’t think so either. We inherit memories and we remember feelings, we watch ourselves, we observe nature, we think and study and experiment following an inner guide, and we look inside through meditation. No one has to tell us to live like we’re eternal… it just seems to be hardwired. Who would believe that birth is the beginning and death the end. Not me… not Consciousness. Continue reading
“Every path comes with a price.” I read that statement somewhere and decided to write it down and think about it. Life is a journey, for everyone, and journeys are taken on paths. But the “every path comes with a price” statement sounds a bit intimidating or threatening. So, what ‘price’ are we talking about here?
When we grow up under the ‘eternal damnation if you do it wrong’ threat, we can get a little wary or even fearful of taking the wrong path. Let’s start out by eliminating the threatening feeling of the word ‘price’. If by price we mean effort, well of course… every single life requires effort. If the price we’re talking about is karma, that could be experienced as enjoyable or difficult. Continue reading
The article below was one of the first entries on Talk2Momz. I thought I´d re-post and celebrate that because it shows me how much we change in these times of rapid change. So here is the evidence to support that notion. The original title was “Loving a Man.” And yes, I still agree with me… men are friggin gorgeous.
A few months ago a female friend of mine said to me, “Men fall in love, women make a deal.” Continue reading
