In order to achieve greatness

one must be willing to make great mistakes.

The Love of My Life

“Hello, it’s nice to meet you. You been coming here more often, I’ve noticed…” She smiles and they begin their conversation each feeling like they’ve known the other all their lives. They talk for hours. Hours turn into days and days into months. Before they know it, a couple of years have gone by. They […]

Like Air

Fresh air. How amazing does fresh air feel? When a breeze sweeps your face, you close your eyes and can almost taste its sweetness. Warm, gentle summer breezes are like Love. Source is flowing all around you. The trees dance joyously with the Love breeze. They sound like a cheering crowd with their leaves telling […]

TO: Mom

We decided we’d learn much from each other – you and I. A long time ago, before we met on this planet, our souls knew each other. During one long-seeming moment, we got together and painted a picture of things to come… You would go do “the human thing” first; I would follow suit later. […]

Change

I’ve been watching the world for the past two years and have become very aware of how quickly things are changing for all of us. Every person I know has been (or is being) “hit” with a lot of change very fast. Breakups, new relationships, moving, losing jobs, divorces, new jobs, marriages, family members passing…more […]

East Wind

Sometimes you meet friends you see every day. Sometimes you meet friends you see every month or every few years. Life happens. Busy happens. Things get chaotic and unexpected. Time slips… It slips and slides and flies away. Where did it go? Another year gone by… Then there are moments in time – moments that […]

Unlimit

There seems to be no graceful way for me to ease into the words my hand wants to form. So, why try? You limit yourself. We all do or have. We’ve been taught that things just are the way they are. I was taught at a young age that “real” men don’t cry, don’t talk […]

Change You

I cannot change you. No matter what I do or how hard I try. No matter how much I love you and want you to experience things beyond your best dreams I don’t get to make that decision for you. Ever. I have to remember more than anything else: all I can do is choose […]

Break

Creativity has a process: ebb and flow. Oftentimes, when we don’t feel creative in our lives it is because we don’t appear to be producing anything. We seem to have lost motivation, be it in our jobs, with our family, in our workouts, in our spiritual practices…in anything we do that brings us happiness (which […]
