Don’t force it. Don’t feel that you have to perfect it on day 1 - or ever. Some days, my meditations provide a high definition, Technicolor extravaganza of sights, sounds, and powerful guidance in the divine world. Other days, I’m trudging through fog.
But I keep trying.Read More
The stones were heart-shaped. One that was jade green with some bluish streaks, drew my attention. I pulled it from the bag and felt an electric jolt through my whole body.
Tears filled my eyes.
“Why am I crying over a rock?”Read More

Herman Williams, MD, created The Kindness Scale in his recently released memoir. Performing CPR on someone or donating an organ are the highest levels of kindness. A smile or an acknowledgment nod to a stranger are the most basic acts.
Herman lived to tell what others’ acts of kindness mean to him — twice.Read More
“…the sun sparkled on the light chop of waves as if God had sprinkled a million diamonds over Lake St. Clair.”
— Husbands, Incorporated by Elizabeth Ann Atkins
This morning, that image reflected back at me when I stopped during a bike ride to meditate and pray beside the lake.
For long, amazing moments, I marveled at the sun sparkling on the water, which danced to the tune of a gentle breeze and caressed the jagged rocks. My gaze followed the trail of sparkles all the way to the edge of the world, where the sun was making a silvery puddle on the horizon.Read More
A baby bunny... a male and female cardinal... a big white cat... a chipmunk... a blue jay.
All these friendly critters fluttered and scampered around me while doing yoga in the warm summer sunshine.
Mother Nature provided the soundtrack of chirping birds, and the soft breeze rustling in the treetops, along with my favorite Bill Withers song, Steppin' Right Along. It’s the most soul-stirring rendition of The Lord’s Prayer — and it made me twirl in a joyful dance all by my damn self.Read More
I am a spice nut, and yes my spices are arranged alphabetically on a prominent shelf in my kitchen.
I keep the cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg on a separate shelf -- away from the parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
This morning, however, the cumin, having made its way to the wrong spot on the wrong shelf, landed in my hand and performed a sprinkling dance over my oatmeal.Read More
A woman with tight, curly gray hair, wearing a white eyelet blouse and a blue handkerchief-print skirt positioned herself on the concrete dance floor just below the outdoor stage. The MC introduced the opening act on the final day of the annual blues festival. A few wanna-be dancers lingered nearby. The majority of the crowd sat comfortably in tent-chairs.
The blues harmonica started, then the guitar, and then one guy started wailing my-baby-done-left-me vocals.Read More
Yesterday, something happened that knocked me off center. It triggered a vicious whirlpool of worries that sucked at my energy, my peace, my joy, my concentration.
This was infuriating because I wanted to spend the entire day writing with turbo-charged mental and physical stamina.
But suddenly all I wanted to do was go to sleep.
“You have to send love to the situation,” Catherine said. “Negativity only makes it worse. Just concentrate on sending positive energy to resolve it.”
She was telling me what I already knew — and do — most of the time.Read More
My brain was a cyclone, spinning over too many things at once.
Tension gripped my muscles.
So, as I do most days, I did yoga in my living room — usually The Five Tibetans or a Kundalini routine with Maya Fiennes.
Yoga opens the chakras, boosts intuition, and elevates me to high-frequency channels to crystal-clear meditation.
So, after the exhilarating, body-soothing movements of yoga, I lay on the couch under a plush blanket, cover my eyes, listen to sonic driver drumming music, and slip into a theta brainwave state.Read More
