Finding Balance

Finding Balance

Do you often find yourself at the tipping point? Where one more thing will push you over the edge? Stress at its finest! I recently adopted another dog. She is 3 to 4 years old and she was in a puppy mill all her life. She didn’t know how to walk on a leash and she wasn’t at all housebroken. It took me a month to get her to pee in the grass, she thought the cement side walk was a far better place. I have had her for five months and she is such a loving little dog but she was used to going in her kennel, she had no choice. When they rescued her she totally encrusted with her own excrement. They had to shave her coat off in order to clean her up and her hair is just barely growing back. read...

Meditation Made Easy

Whatever the question: Meditation is the answer Whenever I work with someone I suggest they create bookends, something they do every morning and every night to remind themselves that life is a journey of love. I suggest one of the bookends is meditation. I have taught people how to meditate for almost 30 years and have watched people make it so much harder than it needs to be. They say they are going to meditate and then they put it off. They say I don’t have the time. I have found in my own life I don’t have the time NOT to meditate! Here is a very simple guided meditation that will show you how to meditate. Listen to it and then allow the magic of meditation unfold in your life. read...

Does Anyone Really Believe We Can Create Peace With Violence?

I talk a great deal about emotional neutrality and the perfection of everything. I know every event is perfect and that doesn’t mean that at times I don’t have strong reactions, judgments and profound wonderment at our choices as a species. This week I had one of those moments. Celebrating Osama bin Laden’s...

The scorpion and the turtle

A Teaching Story I have heard many variations of this story. I love teaching stories. Each time we read them we can glean another piece of wisdom from them, kind of like life when we are paying attention. One day turtle was sitting by the edge of the pond getting ready to swim across. Scorpion came over and asked turtle for a ride. Turtle looked at scorpion and said, “Why would I ever give you a ride. You would certainly sting me and I would surely die.” “Why would I sting you when you were doing me the kindness of giving me a ride? Besides, I would drown and die too if I stung...
