    Taking Time to Appreciate the Beauty...

    One of my instructors told me... when you're feeling down. Or when you feel as if you are out of sorts with the world. Stop... and take time out to look around you. Look at the colors of the trees, the birds, the beauty of the clouds, sky and sun. Then look... really look at the...

    Most Of The Places I Stay End With A Number '9', Or Adds To A '9'

    The only one time It did not - I had a real traumatic experience.Not that I choose that number - but they come to me by itself - It's very circumstancial, and the other I bought a pant and in it - was a sticker - that said - 'Inspected by operator 27' .

    It Is For Me, At Least. Isn't It For Everyone?

    Well, if you don't take life as a spiritual experience, you might find very little after death. Just a thought

    The Wonderment Of Birds

    My first experience with this phenomenon was several years ago. A bird came and nestle underneath my awning for months. The bird was there when  I went to work and when I returned home. A neighbor of mine tease me by calling me the bird lady. I was afraid of it and perplexed as...

    Key2life

    A beautiful life does not just happen, it is built daily by prayer, humility, sacrifice and love. Believe the impossible........ Read a few things that you like everyday and read something you would not normally. Try to worry about nothing and pray. Tell God, a higher power or an...

    Spiritual Fires

    We all go through those "spiritual fires...' those events, lessons, loves and losses that change us. There is no getting around it, the only way... is through it. And all that you know, deep down within, is that you will not be the same person you were coming out...

    The Symbol of the Phoenix

    I can't tell you how many times I've felt like I've risen from my own ashes (in one aspect or another). How many life changing events I have gone through that have left me completely drained or hallow on the inside. Only to find myself inspired and filled up once more with...

    I Was Born Before The Sun

    The universe knew me before it's first infant cry. Wee are all creature of the light and into that we shall return.  To be alive is to be one of the many forms the universe takes as it expands.  We have never separated from the source.

    When It Comes to Spirit...

     When it comes to "Spirit", I've learned that you approach the topic with great humility. Spirit is not something that should be toyed with. It is something that either you commit to, or you do not. It responds to you, reflecting your weakness and strength back at...

    A Shared Comment On The Soul

    And a Journey.

    I am a soul... I have a body - for now. I very much think we are spirits having the human experience. The spiritual side... makes everything else look not so colorful, if you know what I mean. It seems more real than the physical in many ways.

    Putting Your Spirit In the Moment

    Over the years I've come to learn that life is like an ocean and we can either skim over the surface and dive down deep. What you get out of it, depends on how much you put into it. Live in the moment, that is where true power resides. Don't dwell in the past, it is only a lesson...
