Season for Peace & Non-Violence and Love

Today marks the beginning of the Associated Global New Thought’s Season for Peace & Non-Violence. I would live to see us all begin to embody this thought, but I am powerless to make it happen, in so much as, I cannot force anyone to desire this or want this to be the norm, which it is not. Everywhere you turn, people are messing with the peace of individuals, communities, cities, states, nations, and even the […]


The Ego and Suffering

“The saint knows that the world and everything made by God is good, while those who are not saints either think that created things are unholy, or else they don’t bother about the question one way or another because they are only interested in themselves.” Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation In reading this statement, it made me think. If Merton believes this, how did he justify his need to rail against the conflict created […]

As within, so without…

This phrase is Biblical in nature, or so I assumed. It turns out it’s a bit of Hermetic wisdom, or at least a paraphrase of “as above, so below…” It is still a great piece of wisdom to live by. If you believe as I do that what you believe ultimately manifests in and as your life in one way or another, this phrase reinforces that premise. Sort of like the phrase “you are what […]


Truth Revisited

I find myself writing about truth and authenticity quite often. While I am speaking to “my truth” all of the time, there are certain truths that I hold to be true for everyone. One such truth is “All men (and women) are created equal.” And then I realize that at this point in time and space, this is only my truth. It may be a belief that is held by many and it may be […]


Self-Love or Narcissism

“If I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take to name yourself?” A Facebook friend recently responded about post image about self-love that she was afraid it sounded narcissistic if she stated that. I guess my direct comment would be, “yes, it would, if you would go around declaring that to everyone,” but what I feel is that self-love is the basis for loving others. Narcissism is […]
