02 –0– What pulls you off course? What attachment is stronger than the call from your center for expression and service? If we are not going to live to incarnate what is deepest, truest and best about us, what are we getting that will offset that betrayal? The story of the Garden of Eden isContinue reading “November 29, 2020”

02 If our heart isn’t in what we are doing, it shows. We can’t fake heart. Better that we listen to heart– and do what heart says do, and not do what heart says don’t do. We make our biggest mistakes not listening to heart. Or confusing heart with Eros, and waking up in someContinue reading “November 28, 2020”

04 What is meaningful about your life? How often do you do it? How often would you need to do it to say without hesitation that you are living a meaningful life? A life that has meaning for you is the only meaningful life there is for you. If what do has meaning for 10,000Continue reading “November 27, 2020”

04 Is it easier to deceive yourself alone, or in a group? When I look around at the white supremacists, the NRA, the MAGA’s, the Qanon’s, the Roman Catholic Church, the Evangelical Christian churches, the Protestant Christian churches… the list is really, really, long… I think there is no safety in numbers, and the moreContinue reading “November 26, 2020”

04 Boredom is not a call for “Action, any kind of action!”, but an invitation to sit still and be quiet. We are forever passing up silence for action– and therein lies the problem. “Action, any kind of action,” is distraction, diversion, addiction– addiction to noise, to distraction and diversion. We live for entertaining pastimes,Continue reading “November 25, 2020”

03 What is your predominant mood? What is your overriding feeling? What is the nature of your outlook? Of your viewpoint? Of your disposition? How does your body carry anxiety, anger, hopelessness, depression, grief, mourning, fear, worry, concern…? What is not working about your life? Where are your needs and expectations being disappointed? What isContinue reading “November 24, 2020”

03 We are to live out of the center of who we are– “Like a wheel turning out of its own center,” (Friedrich Nietzsche). In order to do that, we have to spend time nurturing and nourishing our relationship with our center. Our center is the contact point with our original nature, our natural rhythms,Continue reading “November 23, 2020”

03 What are the things keeping us from being the person we are capable of being, doing the things we are capable of getting done? Really–what is holding us back? Standing in our way? If it weren’t for what, we would be doing what? Sit quietly with those things in your lap. Meditate on thoseContinue reading “November 22, 2020”

03 We have to be right about what’s important. Everything rides on it. But how can we be right about what’s important? By being wrong, wrong, wrong with our eyes open. Getting it right the first time is an accident. Getting it right twice in a row just starting out is stupid lucky. Getting itContinue reading “November 21, 2020”

03 Our life is designed to bring out the best in us, or not. Joseph Campbell said, “It took the Cyclops to bring out the hero in Ulysses.” But, not in all those the Cyclops met before Ulysses. We do not have to stand up and step forward to meet our life with our bestContinue reading “November 20, 2020”

03 We see things the way we see things. And. Everything hinges/turns/flows from/falls out around how we see things. Nothing is more important than being right about the way we see things. That being the case– and who could see it any other way– you would think we would take the pains required to seeContinue reading “November 19, 2020”
