Good Morning Dear Readers,

There is no greater agony in life than bearing an untold story inside you. – Maya Angelou

What’s your story?

Take a trip thru your own “timeline.”  Watch the movie of your life as an objective viewer!  Review again to sense what parts evoke emotions such as joy, fear, failure, success, excitement, courage etc.  You get the idea?

In a gestalt fashion make lists and who knows – a story of YOU, Your life journey, Your life experiences – Your Aha! Moments! will evolve!

Most of us rush thru our lives and all of a sudden the curtain comes down and it is over!  So, Young or Old take time now to reflect on what you Continue reading

Clear Canvas

By:  Rae Jacob

Another clear canvas of life is gifted to me

What will I do with it?

What shall I paint on this day – this time?

Shall I look with colorful and sparkling attention and expectation?

🙂 Or 🙁

Wonderful that is my prerogative to think as I chose.

No one forces me to think this way or that way –

Or do they?

That is just it – if others “force” me to think a certain way, at some level, I have allowed it!

Easy way out, huh?

Enter the “finger” of blame again, where it is not my fault.

You have inner strength – use it!

Hang on to yourself, your Source, your Continue reading

Good Morning Dear Readers,

Today, I wanted to share a special writing by a special person.  Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us Mike Bouley.

 

 

The Last Supper

By:  Mike Bouley

Today’s deposition was bedside at an elder care facility, as close as I could get to a dear sweet woman who has terminal cancer.  I introduced myself and told her she had beautiful eyes, which was not a lie.  I knew I would be scooting in very close, as she hardly had any voice.  I wanted her comfortable with me that near.  As she patiently rasped out her answers to all the lawyers’ questions, I quietly wrote them all down.  She was still sharp, Continue reading

Good Morning Dear Readers,

As we are approaching a very special time of year, some thoughts come to me about Palm Sunday and what that means:  Have you ever thought about re-setting your GPS?????

Palm Sunday Thoughts

By:  Rae Jacob

Energetic stillness is what I hear and feel!  It is at once strange and blissful.

Just before I woke this morning the scene of Palm Sunday was alive and vivid.  The awareness and gift of observing again the fleeting nature of success, fame, recognition and acclaim was not to be ignored.  This “worldly” approval is so transitory-one day hailed as a hero-the next day as a criminal.

These vicissitudes of life are a part of our existence.

The Holiest of Continue reading
