Why Does Easy Require Hard – Flow Require Resistance?

Why Does Easy Require Hard – Flow Require Resistance?

This topic to get to Easy you have to pass through Hard – to get to Flow you have to pass through Resistance has been on my mind for awhile.  Yet I was reluctant to write this post. How can I talk about personal growth when the world is an inferno, a flood, a perpetual war? When families are displaced and struggling to feed their children and to keep them safe?

Celebrate the Return of the Light

Celebrate the Return of the Light

As the light returns, I wanted to share my favorite things about the darkest days of the year. I know! Some of you are in the Southern Hemisphere. You are celebrating the first day of Summer.

To send appreciation for the work of the dark, I’d like to celebrate with...

The Sacred Gift – Four Ideas to Build Your Intuition, Part III

The Intuitive Mind is a Sacred Gift; the Rational Mind is a Faithful Servant  ~ Albert Einstein In PART I, we explored whether you are more intuitive or rational.  Each of us has strength in one or both areas.  The key is how do you employ your intuitive or rational mind to serve you and others?  And how can you develop the side that might be hidden or weaker?  I shared my story of how I felt Intuitively Challenged until I trained to be a Hand...

The Intruder – An Ode to Being

The Intruder – An Ode to Being

The Moon full of itself    In the crisp, silent pre-dawn of deep Winter The Soul source for the snow sparkle Unnoticed, I take my seat tho’ I feel like an intruder Quieting my familiar early morning chatter Breathing in the cold brilliance of that light Nothing’s there to interfere with the sweetness of the moment I intent on meaning in these dark days Aware that my embrace of winter’s gifts is fragile As I sit and watch that magnificent orb...

The Weather is Like a Box of Chocolates

Right now in Vermont, it’s dry-aired perfection with puffy clouds one day; thundery and sticky humid the next.  And recently we had some cold that threatened our young garden. Remember when Forrest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get“? I feel that way about the weather…you never know what you are going to get and that’s exciting. Or is it? What’s your relationship to the...

For a New Beginning

For a New Beginning

Some of you know that I love poems and I have some favorite poets.  And a few of you know I like to write a poem now and then.  My way of practicing mindfulness as a nod to my not so successful efforts to calm my monkey mind enough to do sitting meditations.
