Inspiring quote by Winston Churchill: "I felt as though I were walking with destiny and that all my past life had been a preparation for this hour and for this trial."

The Entirety Of Your Life Has Prepared You For This Moment

“His record is a litany of catastrophe.”                                    “We have a drunkard at the wheel.”                                                                       “I wouldn’t let him borrow my bicycle.”                                                                                                               “Winston lacks judgment.” These are all descriptions of Winston Churchill in the latest WWII blockbuster Darkest Hour, which depicts the epic challenges the […]

Perceptions of Reality: Don't Believe Everything You Think

Is Your Imagination Getting the Best of You?

Like many men, my husband loves war movies. So getting him the DVD of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk for Christmas was a bit of a no-brainer. As we watched it last week, a number of metaphysical themes jumped out at me. One scene, in particular, reminded me of how our beliefs about and perceptions of reality shape our experience.

It’s Time to Stand In Possibility

We so often focus on the obstacles in our way, the reasons why we can’t live the life we want.We put ourselves in a box of our own creation, with our own set of self-imposed limitations, our concepts of what is or is not possible for ourselves and our experience. […]

Practical Spirituality: What's the Difference Between Spiritual Principles and Spiritual Practice?

Practical Spirituality: What’s the Difference Between Spiritual Principles and Spiritual Practices?

Spiritual principles are those fundamental truths that form the foundation of my spiritual understanding. They are my rock, my fall back. Whenever I find myself spinning because of something “bad” or “wrong” that seems to be going on in my world, I revert back to spiritual principle – what do I know, at the deepest level of my being, as the spiritual Truth behind whatever is showing up?

For truly I say to you, if there is faith in you even as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move away from here, and it will move away; and nothing would prevail over you. ~Matthew 17:20

Mustard Seed Faith – It’s Not What You Think

Mustard seed faith has nothing to do with the size of the mustard seed or needing only a small amount of faith. It has everything to do with the nature of the mustard seed. The mustard seed knows its nature. It knows that it is never going to grow...

You Don't Need Spiritual Practice to Be More Spiritual

You Don’t Need Spiritual Practice To “Be More Spiritual”

You don’t need prayer, affirmations, meditation, church (or other spiritual community) services, or any other spiritual practice to “become more spiritual.” Now it might seem ironic that I’m saying this given that this post is included in the “spiritual practice” section of my website. Or because I have numerous prayers and […]

Duality Word Cloud

Duality Thinking…Are You Stuck in It?

If you had asked me 12 months ago whether I believed in duality, I would have confidently said “nope, God is all there is.” As I’ve been going even deeper in my spiritual practice I’ve come to recognize just how pernicious dualistic thinking is. And yes, I had clearly been […]
