Woo-Woo Science

August 26, 2013

Listen to your gut. Follow your heart. What does your spidey sense tell you?   Famous last words heard all too often encouraging us to tap into “something else” for guidance. Because when we do, we’re dismissed as being new-age woo-woo. What do we hold up upon hearing “show me the proof.”   That little…

Mixed Messages

These “words of wisdom’ scrolled across my monitor last week. You must LOVE your work. Your work is the process by which you obtain happiness. If you aren’t experiencing balance, pleasure or prosperity then something is off.   Outside Voice rationally said “Everyone has a perspective.” Inside Voice screamed “this is so W.R.O.N.G.!” I wanted…

Humility From The Heart

July 17, 2013

I remember my brother-in-law casually pondering with his outside voice as to how young is old enough to be enrolled in the school of hard knocks. Great question … When is the best time to learn you don’t win all the time? Or everything you do doesn’t deserve praise and applause? And nobody wants to…

You Are The Way Through

July 10, 2013

There’s not much room on the side of a stainless steel fridge for magnets. My collection once sprawled across the freezer door has been whittled down to a meaningful few with some recent additions. One such newcomer took me totally by surprise recently – I don’t remember placing it there.   Do not go where…

Racking my brain causes a light bulb to…

Whatever Do You Mean

June 26, 2013

Not The Only One

June 19, 2013

Two summers ago I remember wavering on whether or not to take a course. The material was interesting, but not new. I just wasn’t sure if there would be enough fresh content to make the investment of time and money worthwhile. The deadline was drawing near so I had to make a decision. Pacing around…

The Inquirer’s Playground

June 12, 2013

There I lay. Hopelessly awake in the middle of the night with no more tears to cry. Four hours from the Zihuatanejo, Mexico airport. No vehicle. Not much more to my Spanish repertoire than “¿Dónde está el baño?”   Two fellow travelers I’m sure were plotting to dump me in the nearest dark alley. A…

Cross Peace Off Your List

June 4, 2013

From within the thick of utter chaos, serenity looks like an oasis in the desert we pray isn’t a mirage. Yet when calm reigns for just a bit over too long, the itch for something more returns. Unless we choose the life of a monk, how do we find that elusive peace so desperately sought…
