The circle of life swings around each and every Thanksgiving for me and returns me once again to a place of reflection. I ask myself if I have lived the past year with gratitude.Thanksgiving is just another day. But, the true beauty of our desire to recognize a day for 'thankfulness' is that it practically forces us to take pause at least to the extent of recognizing the words 'thanks' and 'giving.'Frankly, I think the day should be called 'Giving Thanks Day.' In the United States, often we are taunted by the commercialistic machine to make this day about eating exorbitant amounts of food as an act of recognizing how good we have it. However, if we do take pause and reflect on...

I wrote this maxim more than two decades ago that says, 'Joy, we must look for, misery will find us.' Well, maybe not always.Decades ago, when I was in acting school, an assignment for the following week was to express joy. I had no problem with the other emotions we were to emulate. Yet, I had no idea what joy felt like. While walking down Highland, passing Hollywood Boulevard, just past where I worked at Max Factor, suddenly, what I could only describe as joy seized me. A better description is that it passed through me. Wow! Is that what joy feels like?!At the time, I had no idea what was the modus operandi of suddenly experiencing joy. Now, of course, I know. It was the same as when suddenly I began crying and stopped just as quickly without any reason for...

That move us along aren't always gentle.Life Paths aren't limited to numerology definitions. If reincarnation is reality then our existence ebbs and flows like the sea to the shore. It moves throughout the Universe and is not limited to this dimensional space. Why we exist and what is our purpose are good questions that multitudes have asked over aeons.Some think we are to serve a god or higher power. If meaning that we are to learn goodness, nothing can be wrong with that. Genuflecting for favors, however, seems like bargaining with our souls. Also, if we exist merely to accumulate wealth, we may very well limit our existence to this earth plane. Would the Universe have long-term use for those with this limited self-serving mentality?Apart from numerology Life Path...

Being broken doesn't always mean that we are the victims of others. It may mean that we have victimized others, so broke ourselves when doing so. The philosophy that says when we hurt others, we only hurt ourselves has validity when realizing the tangible process. When we come to terms with hurting others and are truly remorseful we make up for it in many ways.When the first Cave Man clobbered the first Cave Woman over the head and dragged her into the cave, he erred against her. He may have only thought he was being clever to get what he wanted, but did that really make a difference to her? She may have held him accountable for her headache and abuse. When Roman soldiers raped and pillaged, they may have told themselves that they were only following orders, but did the victims c...

That's a question we will all face sooner or later. Perhaps, though not always possible, being sooner is better.Dogma walks on a tight leash and has no tolerance for straying. Burning, beheading, battering behaviors are all consequences embedded into subconscious minds from eons of past lives to remind Seekers not to do so. Not only the Punished, but the Perpetrators live among us. Some extract pleasure from their beliefs as it is my contention that some sociopaths use religion to justify their own demented desires by torturing those they consider heretics. Some use and have used religion to control others. They are impotent to the winds of change, feeling securer when oppressing others by their beliefs whether true or not. Some people will lie to themselves and others to ...

Why are we holding back? Is it because we are afraid of failure or rejection? Fear of our own possible success? Because we may feel unworthy? Is it the 'Cinderella complex'? Well, it's time for Cinderella to crawl out of the ashes and SHINE.Who am I to dream of success? Were you raised to just be average? Who told you to not stand out? Many of these limiting beliefs are deeply rooted in us as they were instilled during our childhood by family, society, friends. What if we let go of the fear of failure, rejection or the jealousy of others? What if the outcome of your endeavor doesn't even matter? What if the journey matters, the attempt to be the best you can be, just for yourself not anyone else? Would you become the f...

I've been chewing on this title for sometime. I didn't know how to approach it. I don't like to write frivolous blogs unless I have something to say. I leave that to my Twitter nnnTheCode feed. Anyway, I'm sure that I've alluded to this topic before. So what was there to say, really? I dropped it.In this morning's early hours the 'Universe' gave me a gift. My heart is still swelling and joyous tears still form over it. I may have to stop writing from time to time to blow my nose and compose myself.In my earlier posts, you may have read a tribute to my cat Patch that I inserted ...

I spent some time this weekend making new friends while visiting a log cabin in the mountains of Arizona. I feel blessed to have spent time with these people and throughout the weekend that we shared, I often found myself observing and reflecting upon the experience and their personal perspectives in association with my own life and where I am headed.With good fortune, as we sat on the back porch in the evening hours sitting around tables by candle light, I was gifted some great philosophical conversations. As ambient music played in the background and crickets chirped in the surrounding forest, we shared stories of our past and perspectives of the spiritual realm....

I sit here at my computer screen looking upon a blank white page that patiently waits for my words to be cast upon it. It awaits my medium, thus painting a picture like spreading explosions of watercolor recreating the powerful visions in my mind. So much has transpired over the past months… such commanding shifts have bestowed themselves upon me, delivered by the recent series of transformative eclipses.My life has changed in ways I could have only wished on my greatest adversaries… if my heart were in such a place to cast harm upon another. But, my heart is open, and thus I must only receive its gifts and sculpt in my hands the raw cold clays of reality into lessons for the greater go...
