Feeling Awe Affects our Health and Happiness

Have You Ever Experienced Awe and Deep Wonder? It Could Be the Key to Your Health and Happiness! If you have ever stood on the shores of an island or a continent and watched the sun silently, and slowly sink beneath the horizon, you were likely quiet. Even silent. Another day was done but you were there to see the clouds turn from pink to golden and finally to grey and then black. It seems to happen ever so slowly and yet modern people are struck with awe, so filled with awe—reverence–are we that the scene, simple and ancient as it is, fills us with wonder as the majesty of the...

About Humility and Committing To Being Humble To Each Other

Commit To Being Humble To Each Other 2017 is here in all its glory and the world hopes it will be a year of respite from the traumas of 2016. One of my favorite books is Andrew Harvey’s, The Hope. It is about what he calls ‘sacred activism’, a world totally devoted to dedicated action for others. It seems likely that it will take a very long time for the world to get it, but the world is better off because some people are now committed to serving humanity and nature, thus making themselves better human beings by developing humility in themselves and serving others. Humility, like gratitude...

The Christmas Season Is About Joy Yes, truly the Christmas season is about joy! And it is also about light. The solstice brings the huge change from darker and shorter days to longer and brighter days. Let’s be happy about it!

Have you ever seen soft lightening?

It’s Always Time After reading a short paragraph this morning by Andrew Harvey in his book The Hope, A Guide to Sacred Activism,1 I was really thrilled and deeply moved about the way he talked about Nelson Mandela and wanted to share this. The story he tells about his experience with Nelson Mandela is breathtaking. Harvey was invited to a gathering in Paris where Nelson Mandela was the guest of honor. Knowing that Mandela had been in prison for 27 years, one of the many guests present asked the octogenarian what he had learned in his life. Mandela was quiet for a long time and said nothing. ...

The Soul of Great Relationships

Let’s Be Best Friends: The Soul of Great Relationships There are a few lasting stories about going to the supermarket that linger in mind as a choice expression of the best that’s in us. Here’s what happened to me on one shopping trip. Readers outside the United States may not be familiar with the way an American supermarket is laid out with many long aisles running parallel to each other with shelves stacked high with food items on each side of an aisle, but I found myself like a salmon about to spawn as I was going the opposite direction from most of the other customers in my local store....

Hierarchy-Humanity-Shamballa

I sense the train-like effect that Hierarchy has on the world: humanity struggles toward Hierarchy and Hierarchy unceasingly moves toward Shamballa and the working out of the...
