What do you really want?

What do you really want?

My teacher Gabriel Halpern regularly encouraged us to ask for what we want.
I’m sure he said it multiple times before I finally heard it,
and when I did, my first reaction was,
“What if I don’t know what I really want?”

Do YOU know what you really want?

I really want my kids to have […]

Today and EveryDay

Today and EveryDay.

I love Thanksgiving.
Gratitude has come to define my life.
And I’m happy to devote an entire day to feeling
and expressing my gratitude for all the blessings in my life
and on my life.

What are YOU grateful for?
I ask myself this question throughout my day,
especially on the challenging days and/or at the
challenging moments of any day.

I […]

EveryDay Meditation Tool: Into The Woods

What IS meditation anyway?
And what ARE meditation tools?
And what do I mean by EveryDay?

I’m no longer a purist.
I learned from the Dalai Lama that we can find/make a meditative
moment from anything and everything in our life.

He talks about sitting in airports between planes
and absorbing himself in watching people while he waits.
I’m talking about making space […]

See What You Believe

See What You Believe

I’ve been working really hard to find the words
to describe how I feel about
this current world, today’s election,
all the attendant fear-mongering,
and what I intend to do with it.

I’m so grateful that I’m able to get to the woods
because they truly do inspire me.

As I purposefully deepened and lengthened my breath
walking up the […]

Change?!

Change?!

Several years ago, I brought home a really pretty carpet for our foyer.
I laid it on the floor in front of the church pew that my husband had
collected years before then from a church where he had been a choir boy.
They were knocking down the church.

Our beautiful Golden Retriever barked and barked and barked
and pulled […]

EveryDay Prayers® Brilliant Beautiful Blond

Brilliant.
Beautiful.
Blonde.
Witty and charming.
Passionate.

I see her on book covers
and in interviews
and the light in me dims
to blackness,
to my darkness that plagues me,
has shadowed me since my childhood
of hearing tales of those who have (them)
versus those who have not (us),
tales of needing to be better than or
ending up as less than.
Competition for affection,
for attention,
for love
defined my childhood […]

Could You Be A Switch Hitter?

Could You Be A Switch Hitter?

Growing up, I was a HUGE baseball fan—
Kept score at home, knew the lineups backwards and forwards, etc.

In baseball, a switch hitter is one who can hit from both sides of the plate,
left handed or right handed. They know their strengths
against right or left handed pitchers.

They read the defense positions […]

Dancing On The Edge

Dancing on the Edge…Standing on the shore of ourself.

I find that, all too often,
discussions, conversations disintegrate into
a mishmash of emotion.

Have you found this to be true, too?

We’re so intent on being right, having people agree with us,
having our feelings reinforced…

We become emotional…
In and of itself that’s not a bad thing.

The trouble stems from this:
We IDENTIFY […]

What If…?

What if…?

Do you worry about all the bad things that might happen?
when you’re driving to the airport?
when you’re studying for an exam?
when you’re planning an event?
when your kids are driving?
when your kids are playing?
when your partner is away?

Why do we do this to ourselves?

It has been written over and over again
that the Universe gives us […]
