The New Moon of Cancer: The Glass is Half Full

The New Moon of Cancer: The Glass is Half Full

This weekend, we will enter the lunar month of Cancer.

Taking Energy vs. Giving Energy

Taking Energy vs. Giving Energy

Taking note of how much we give or take energy can provide a gauge for where we are spiritually.  Examples of taking energy include: Watching TV, gossiping, overindulging, and complaining.  Examples of giving energy include: Volunteer efforts, creative outlets, positive new projects, and sharing support with a friend.  Isn’t it weird that the things we […]

Beyond Our Garbage

Beyond Our Garbage

A good indication that you’re on the right path is when you start to see more of your garbage. You start noticing the ego at play and how you allow it to take hold of you and in your interactions with others. Seeing our garbage is never easy, but it’s what we do once we […]

Transformative Actions

Transformative Actions

There are three things that can help us to be successful on our spiritual path: 1. Be giving of your time with no agenda. 2. Engage in sharing actions without agenda. 3. Give some of the money that you’ve earned to be used for the service of others. These may seem simple, but they are […]

EXPANDING OUR CAPACITY FOR GREATNESS

EXPANDING OUR CAPACITY FOR GREATNESS

Has it ever happened that you achieve something great but then feel empty afterwards? Many times, we believe we will be happy and fulfilled once we finish a project, find our soul mate, or win the prize only to discover that after the initial excitement settles, a tremendous emptiness sets in. A feeling of, Well, […]

Unseen Addictions

Unseen Addictions

When we think of addictions, we usually think of them in the physical sense, like smoking or gambling for instance; but the addictions that give us the greatest challenge exist well below the surface and are not as easy to see. All of us have below the surface addictions that include: Approval, Recognition, Attention, Enabling […]

Conquering Fear

Conquering Fear

Fear is a good barometer to gauge where we are in our level of comfort or discomfort. The more afraid that we become, the greater chance that we are getting out of our comfort zone and connecting with potential fulfillment. Pick a fear that you have and make an effort to confront it this week. […]

A New Beginning

A New Beginning

I am dropping my ego and moving toward actual and lasting fulfillment. I will restrain my selfish longings as I ask for what my soul needs, not what my ego wants. Looking again, I want elevation for my soul, real transformation. I will restrict any tendencies toward negativity or complaining. I appreciate everything around me […]

Delayed Gratification

Delayed Gratification

A Good Sign Whenever we choose temporary pleasure, we delay long-term happiness. When we are willing to put up with temporary discomfort, we have a good chance at lasting fulfillment. If you are feeling uncomfortable while doing your spiritual work, it’s a good sign you’re on the right path.

Try Something New

Try Something New

We can always make today a great day simply by breaking free from our habitual bubble.  What can you do today that would make it different from any other day? Sign up for a yoga class, speak to someone on the street, take a different route to work, ask the new employee in your office […]

Expect Nothing

Expect Nothing

Expectation is the idea that something will go a certain way, or that I am entitled to something. Entitlement is the one of most limiting and destructive of reactive behaviors. But the real problem with it is that when we feel entitled we are simply not happy. Happy people are doing something, creating something, being […]

Take a Refreshing Dip

Take a Refreshing Dip

My Bali vacation in March 2012 was awesome. My husband and i had the privilege to cleanse and purify our Body, Soul and Spirit. We also took this opportunity to cleanse our crystals with the holy water. In Hindu rituals, water is used to cleanse the devotees before and after praying. Before praying to the […]

God’s Milk – Instead of being a cup, become a straw

God’s Milk – Instead of being a cup, become a straw

God’s nature is to constantly bestow its love upon us. As the sages say, “more than the calf wants to suckle, the cow wants to provide it with milk.” However having the capacity to accept it and being fulfilled by it is very difficult to do. Just look around at people in the world who […]

It’s Called Gratitude…

It’s Called Gratitude…

We radiate a different kind of energy when we’re frowning and gloomy, as opposed to when we’re smiling and happy. Smiling is a sign saying, “Enter,” whereas frowning says, “Do Not Disturb.” Many of us find it hard to smile because we’re consumed with what’s missing in our lives. If only we woke up every […]

Be the Boxer in your life

Be the Boxer in your life

Life’s tests don’t come when we’re prepared for them. They come when we’re not. How spiritual we are isn’t just about how much we smile or share – it’s also what we do when we get tested. One thing’s for sure: our inner opponent is never going to take us on when we are ready. […]
