Everything is a Choice and We Each Have the Freedom to Choose.

“Freedom is a condition of the Soul. As we turn to the kingdom of our inner Self, we find the reign of divine Power in the outer world. As we seek peace within, we find harmony without.” ~Joel Goldsmith, The Art of Meditation   Freedom is something we all search for. Freedom of religion, freedom to be who we’d like to be, freedom from abuse, freedom to choose certain things in our life, freedom to […]


Raise Your Voice to Freedom!

What is a world that works for everyone?

What does that look like? How do we get there? Some might say we are there already, and in a limited sense, we are.

Everywhere, nowhere, and now here

Funny, I first heard the “No where-Now here” phrase shared by Dr. Wayne Dyer in one of his NPR shows for one of his books years ago.

“the mere ability we human beings have to sing the praises of love and compassion is a most precious gift.”-Dali Lama, Ethics for the New Millennium, Ch.5 As I facilitated a course based on the Dali Lama’s book, I saw this as a timely issue, because both ethics, and compassion are based in Love. Without Love, we lack the ability to have empathy and therefore compassion. We live in relationship with others out of common […]
