Thanking and be grateful For EVERYTHING, I mean everything. The ugly and the beautiful (these words, they’re just qualifiers). In my opinion the violet that breaks the rocks is more beautiful than the roses in a flower shop. Change your thoughts change your life. Change your thoughts change your life. Change your thoughts change your life. Ugly has a bad rap. As does sad. As does broken. I could …

The Buddhas Four Noble Truths

  The Buddhas Four Noble Truths The darkness and the light are both alike to thee – psalm 139:12 – Life is suffering (dukkha) The First Noble Truth often is translated as “Life is suffering.” Many people new to Buddhism tune out as soon as they hear this. But the Pali word dukkha also refers to anything that is temporary, conditional, or compounded of other things. Even something precious and enjoyable is dukkha, because it will end. Related to the nature of life is the nature of self. Are we not also temporary,conditional and compounded of many parts? We can understand that life is impermanent but are we, also, impermanent? The Buddha taught that before we …

Feel The Feet In Your Shoes And The Breath In Your Lungs

Feel the feet in your shoes and the breath in your lungs. As I sit and get centered for my busy upcoming day, I am inspired by a phenomenal Hellen Keller quote I spied on Facebook. It says: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.”  This resonates as a very deep truth for me. With everything that’s going on in the world these days (especially for those of us who feel subtle energies and the ebb and flow of the celestial influences), security and some sense of shelter from the proverbial storm would seem sweet relief. …

Do We Deserve Happiness?

Do We Deserve Happiness?

Do We Deserve Happiness?   Is suffering out of the question? One unforgettable day in New York City, over ten years ago, I driver had decided to drive particularly fast in the early morning, and (no matter whose fault) my brother was hit. I can clearly see the picture in my mind’s eye even now. I remember vividly that day, that night, the phone call to my family, running to the hospital, walking into ICU and running out as soon as I saw him connected to all those tubes. About a year ago I remember witnessing the thought, “How could this happen to him? to our family? to me?” arising in my awareness. And then the answer came, “Why …

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain Moving your body may be the best way to protect your brain. Physical exercise can ease depression, slow age-related memory loss and prevent Parkinson-like symptoms, researchers reported at the Society for Neuroscience meeting underway in San Diego. The findings — some in animals, some in people — suggest that people may be making a mistake if they’re relying primarily on crossword puzzles and brain-training games for mental wellness. “We definitely have more evidence for exercise,” said Teresa Liu-Ambrose of the University of British Columbia. Liu-Ambrose moderated a panel of scientists who presented studies showing that physical activity offers a wide range of brain benefits. In a study …
