All Roads Lead to the Center of Things - YOU

I am not ashamed to tell you that even I get confused.  At times, I have no idea what each day will bring, feeling as if I am being pulled in an altered direction that makes me question things. Nothing that would prove to be a malady or negative situation, mind you, just the possibility of taking a slightly different path that leads to the same destination.  Am I currently on an ancillary road and do these recent meetings signify a new directional calling?

Did you ever come to a crossroads? So often in my life I have come to that road, the place where there is a fork. Which way do I go? What path do I take?   Sometimes I feel like John, called to withdraw in meditation, listening as he lived on the island of Patmos and wrote. Not that I am comparing my writing to Revelations, of course, but what I'm called to do is greater than just one person.  I do this while still wanting to be of service to the community here on this small plot of the Earth, since I believe that it’s important to be of service wherever we find ourselves.

I sat on the beach with my head in my hands confused, asking for guidance.  Today there would be no audible answer provided. Or would there? I walked back to the small beachside restaurant. The answer came in the form of a meeting with some incredible people who were quoting Edgar Casey.

I look out onto the ocean and sigh, knowing that there has to be a way to find the balance I am seeking.

Remember that with whatever decisions you make, all roads lead to the center of things- YOU. Moreover, all paths of service and love lead to that universal energy force, God.

Wishing you blessings and a great day,

What is Evil?


I attended a gathering recently and someone used the word “Evil.”  I get a creepy feeling every time I hear that word.   When I was younger I was taught that the devil was evil; of course in the “Lord’s Prayer” there is the line ‘deliver us from Evil.’  I took some time today to look up synonyms for evil. What I found were the following words: malevolent, sinful, malicious, wicked, immoral and criminal.Evil defined. Evil definition. Are you EVI

I believe that evil is the opposite of living. Spell LIVE backward and you get E V I L.  People who do not know how to live exist in a continual state of lower fear-based vibrations like anger, hatred, jealousy, envy and sadness. They may continually live in or create drama gossip, lie, steal and do nothing without an ulterior motive.  evil versus spirit

Perhaps they dwell in these low fear based vibrations because they feel alone, not realizing that they are connected to the ALL of the universe, God. Not understating how to vibrate what is LIVE, they don't feel the flow of the spirit and energy within or around them.   

When you recognize that you are pure love, then your spirit is alive and you can easily and effortlessly share yourself and your love with others, maintaining Love, Peace, Joy, Bliss and having compassion for others. You give of yourself and serve your fellow man without expectation.

We are all a work-in-progress. When you wake up and realize what LIVE is, you begin to walk the path of the enlightened ones as you maintain more of the higher vibrations and rarely vibrate that which is considered EVIL. You do not react but respond with love and compassion to those who wish to suck you into the misery

Just some food for thought.

Crying can Heal the Soul


Throughout history, crying is something that's been misunderstood. For example, some men believe that it's not manly to cry; that it shows weakness of some kind. And some people can’t cry at all, hardened by an emotionless existence as they walk around numb to all the pleasures and pains that this Earthly experience offers us.

We now know that crying is actually good for us as we release toxins from our tear ducts. It's also a way to release emotions and stress. Through being still and quiet I came up with what I believe are some of the reasons why we cry, putting them into a poem about crying, shown in the picture that is associated with this article. A fellow channel I met in Sedona also shared that when we cry we release beliefs that no longer serve us. It is healthy to cry. Crying heals the soul. Crying is healthy for the body. Crying reduces stress levels.   
So don't feel ashamed to cry. It is your physical body's and spirit's release. Don't turn away, bow your head or cover your eyes, but display your tears of release proudly. Smile as you share your emotional self with your fellow man. And have a cry on me today!

Wishing you a day filled with love and blessings,

Vibration and Balance - An Introduction to the Chakras


The Chakras are energy centers. They're keys to our vibrational health. Being aware of them allows us to know and unlock the body as well as connect to the universal energy force. The body has hundreds of chakras, but there are seven main chakras that run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. And each of these chakras or energy centers spins and vibrates. Some believe that they all spin clockwise and some believe that their spin alternates between clockwise and counter-clockwise. I believe that they are both correct, since we are seeded from various different systems. For example, mine alternate between clockwise and counter-clockwise, but in the opposite direction than most.  There is a way to check the spin, but we will leave that for a future post. 

SURVIVAL
The first chakra, also call the root chakras is located at the base of the spine. It's signified by the color red. It's where we ground and represents our base needs for survival, like food, water and shelter and financial security. People who are worried about their base needs may have blockages in the root chakra that can manifest in a physical way, like constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, Krone’s disease and other colon issues. 


RELATIONSHIPS and SEXUALITY
The second chakra, also known as the sacral chakra is located near our naval. It's signified by the color orange. This chakra represents our emotions and our relationships; the relationship you have with your parents, family friends, and lovers. It also represents the relationship you have with yourself as an adult and your connection to your inner child. People who have issues in their relationships may have blockages in the sacral chakra that can manifest in a physical way in the uterus (woman), prostrate (man), bladder, and certain kidney ailments. It is the center for rebirth, transformation of the inner child as they emerge from their cocoon, in all their beauty. I feel that the greatest growth potential comes from this chakra because it is when you look at yourself honestly and ask your inner child what it wants  That is where true growth is possible.  

POWER
The third chakra is located in the solar plexus and is signified by the color yellow. It's our center for power and strength and the place where we make things happen. People who have self-esteem issues or feelings of powerlessness may experience problems with their stomach, liver, pancreas.  


LOVE
The fourth chakra, located in the heart and is signified by the color green. It's the place where we give and receive unconditional love. The front of the heart is where we give love and the back of the heart represents our ability to received love. Feelings of unworthiness may block the back of the heart chakra. A guarded individual may have a brick wall built shielding the front of the heart chakra.

COMMUNICATION/CREATIVITY
The fifth chakra, located in our throat and is signified by the color blue or turquoise. It's the place for all forms of creativity, expression and communication. Writers, artists, lectures, teachers, all have beautiful open throat chakras. When we hold back the truth to ourselves and others, we may manifest issues in our throats.

INTUITION/SENSES
The sixth chakra, located between the eye brows and is signified by the color indigo. It's called our third eye and is the gateway between the conscious and unconscious connections. I believe that issues in our senses; seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling are all manifestations of blockages of the third eye.  

SPIRITUALITY
The seventh chakra, also call the crown chakra is located at the top of the head and is signified by the color violet or white. It is the place of where we connect to our higher divine self and all the knowledge of the universe. Blockages in the crown chakra may manifest as headaches, and Alzheimer’s.

When the body’s energy is in balance, the energy flows easily, without obstruction, like a beautiful stream. When your energy is blocked, a dam keeps the current from flowing smoothly. Many things can cause blockages. 

I believe that anything in moderation is okay, but continual consumption of processed foods and lower vibrating emotions, like fear, worry, anger, jealousy, envy as well as too many daily distractions, like television, internet, gaming, drinking, etc. puts the body in a state of ‘dis-ease.’  

A diet of high vibrational foods that includes organic greens and raw foods is a good start to putting the body back in balance. Add that to the state of high vibration I call BEING LOVE and you have the key's to a smooth flow. When you do then you're moving in the right place in your heart and mind and on the path to a higher vibration that is more easily maintainable.

Blessings and have a day filled with Love,

Words have the Power to Help or Hurt


Our reaction to what we say or the words that are spoken to us can have such power on our energy centers if we let them. It is these words that alter existence and change the framework of our lives. I remember a situation many years ago when my girlfriend Eileen and I ventured off into Manhattan and were sitting in a small cafe having an espresso. I could overhear the conversation at another table where an agent was telling a young filmmaker that he should "throw in the towel." The agent’s words were harsh and the recipient looked miserable. When the agent left, I excused myself, went over and whispered a few words into the filmmaker’s ear, then returned to my table. Eileen turned to me seeing the immediate change in this person.  Words have the power to heal.

"Hey, that man looked like he was going to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge a few minutes ago. Now he is beaming and grinning from ear-to-ear. What did you say to him?"  What I said to the man was divinely channeled and yes, his mind, body and spirit were instantly effected in a positive way. The above situation is a perfect example of both one's possible reaction to being spoken to with kindness as well as one's reaction when spoken to in a less than compassionate way. When the agent was speaking to the filmmaker, the recipient was hunched over, his skin pale and gray, his mouth turned down and his spirit defeated. After I spoke to him, he held his head up high, his face glowed, he was smiling wide and you could feel his delicious positive energy from across the room. It's the difference between being in a low vibration and a high vibration. In a later post I will share with you ways to avoid holding onto that low vibration in your energy field, giving it no power; however it is a good lesson about the importance of choosing your words carefully. This holds true whether you are speaking directly to someone or about something. Remember, it's a poor reflection on you when your words are less than kind.  I must confess that at times I struggle with speaking before I choose my words and recently fell backward into an old habit that no longer serves me. I soon realized what I had done and felt horrible, not practicing the love and compassion that I preach to others. There I was in that old pattern that was followed by another old pattern of beating myself up about it until I made it right.  Don’t beat yourself up when you react or make a mistake. That just reinforces an old pattern that will keep you from maintaining a higher vibration. Words have the power to help. 
I made it a point to phone this person and apologize for speaking about something in a less than compassionate way and asked for a 'rewind' since that is not what I am about. What I received from this new friend was compassion and it was the way it was delivered that floored me. ‘Wow,’ I thought as I patiently listened, ‘I've been forgiven before, but it’s never felt like this.’  Once again the teacher had become the student. These few words of kindness from someone that I hardly knew were soft spoken and filled with such love that it made me stop in my tracks, frozen as I took special notice. Strange, but it was if Jesus himself was speaking to me.I knew I was dealing with someone extremely special whose behavior modeled that of an enlightened being.  Those few words made all the difference to me as I looked to this individual with respect and the wish to better emulate their behavior.

We have the opportunity to make or break someone’s millennium with our words. Choose them carefully! Words have the power to destroy. 

Many thanks to all of you for your continued love and support. Words have the power to inspire.Words that inspire

Living a Spiritual Life


I believe that when we are born, we are just pure love.  Look into the eyes of any small child and all you see is unconditional love, the highest vibration there is. It is the vibration that a handful of enlightened beings over history, like Buddha and Jesus maintained throughout their life. 

If that's the case, then what happens that makes us so migrate toward lower vibrations, like fear, worry, anger, hatred, revenge, jealousy, envy, etc.?  

Because we're the product of our Earthly experiences.  I didn't have the best of childhood experiences compared to others, but without those experiences I’m sure I would not have the fortitude and spirit I have today. 

How can you learn to appreciate the good without experiencing the bad? How can you determine what you want if you do not experience what you don’t want?  As a person living in service to others, how can you councel someone that's been mentally or physically abused and tell them you know how it feels, unless you have felt it? As a spiritualist, how can you live a life of higher vibration if you don't experience the same temptations and distractions that keep most people from living their life at a higher vibration?  How can you provide compassion to others without experiencing compassion from others?

We are all like the great pyramid; each brick placed atop the next, bringing us a little closer to the top. With the proper foundation it stands strong. But it wasn't built in one day. I'm continually checking my ego at the door, or trying to, as I venture forward. But my slide-backs  are less and less and my recognition and recovery time is faster.

When God closes one door, he opens another


There are several ways to say this including ‘When God closes one door he opens a window,' but I think you get the idea. I used to laugh with the visual I would get when I heard this statement. It always made me chuckle as I imagined a door atop a fluffy cloud. Even now as I write about it, I grin from ear-to-ear as this image dances in my mind.  

As I sat in a restaurant one recent morning enjoying that perfectly crisp pork creation…. bacon, I sighed, as I watched the sun still low in the sky shining on the ocean;  the waves that rolled into shore provided me with the perfect ambient melody to accompany my morning meal.

‘What an amazing morning once again,’ I thought, as I breathed in deeply, beaming as I sipped the dark roasted goodness that the waiter just refilled in my cup.

I sat back, then casually looked to my left, smiling as I watched a couple at a nearby table whose energy was beautiful; they glowed and vibrated, pulsing love in unison. We somehow got to talking and I know that the universe was blessing me as I appreciated this interaction.

And blessed I was as I continually learn that the path that we walk is full of wonderful opportunities if you are aware and pay attention. This particular one came in the form of new friends and a way to give back and be of service here in Mexico. I believe that we are all here to help others and was overjoyed knowing that I was going to be able to help. 

We met up last evening and drove a few miles away from the shore into the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo to a kitchen near a small church. This particular evening we would be feeding the children in the area.  Tonight while others cooked, my first task was to go and tell the families in the area that there would be a meal for the children. After being provided with the words to say ‘Tenemos comida para los niƱos en la iglesia a las seis,’ (we have food for the children at the church at 6) I was off with a small group walking down the surrounding streets saying these few Spanish words to the countless families that we encountered. We traveled down dirt roads filled with meager dwellings made of cinder blocks and tarps and whatever other materials their constructors could find that would prove useful. The energy here was not what I expected; it was upbeat and positive as children played, dancing around and greeting us as we walked by.  It was humbling and I became ashamed that I had complained about some trivial annoyance that I faced, just earlier that very day. 

Back at the church, I knelt beside a small table among twenty little souls coloring. No language skills were required on my part as I just smiled and nodded as the kids spoke to me, telling me the names of the colored crayons they shared as they filled in an outline of a small dog.  

I took my direction from those around me in the kitchen as I worked the assembly line when the meal was ready to serve; each of the little ones were so welled behaved as they sat and ate. I look forward to seeing them once again and if it is meant to be will be able to get a ride to work with the church every week.

Even though I plan on being back home in March, I miss my Sedona family with opportunities a plenty to serve in the kitchens that surround the area, last evenings experience provided me with such gratitude for what I have and left me with a feeling of the abundance of love in my heart, ecstatic that I was able to share joy with others. I went home with a sense of fulfillment, grateful for this wonderful opportunity for service and continued spiritual growth.

Finding Inspiration



What is inspiration? To me it's a creative idea that comes to the forefront of my thoughts. Where does inspiration come from? If we knew then we could bottle it. I often thought that it has to do where I was physically that provided inspiration, the scenery and the energy; perhaps that is partially true, but based on my experience it is much more. I have received my strongest bursts of inspiration when I was in the midst of personal strife and transformation. So I wonder, is that why the greatest symphonies were written during periods of great strife and political turmoil?

Perhaps you don’t need to go through some incredibly unpleasant experience in order to get inspired. I do find inspiration when I am quiet in nature. In this place with just me and my natural surroundings, I quiet my mind and become open to the messages and inspiration that comes.

A wise friend once said that if you don't act on inspiration, then that thought, idea or concept is passed onto someone else, allowing them to act on it. When I heard that it was my wake-up call not to waste any divine guidance that I was receiving.

Our time on this planet is precious and cosmically short. Find what provides you with inspiration; cherish those moments, both pleasant and unpleasant. Do not waste inspiration when it comes. Do not be afraid to move forward. Walk with courage and take action.

Wishing you a day filled with love and all the blessings the universe can provide,

Should you always be Honest?



You realize as you walk the path toward enlightenment that above all you need to be honest with yourself and others. But does that mean you have to tell people what's on your mind? This is my dilemma as I recently met someone who put their hands on me to ‘heal me’ when I told them I had a little headache.  I found it extremely offensive that they didn't first ask permission before touching me. If they did I would have quickly declined the invitation. As your vibration increases you are very sensitive to other's energy and vibration.  I stood there and did nothing. I remained silent and blocked myself off as they invaded my energetic space, hiding my discomfort.  If I was honest and spoken out at that time, it may be less than compassionate and I did not want to embarrass them in front of a dozen other people, knowing that their intention was kind and loving, wishing me only assistance.  

I live my life in peace assisting all people in increasing their vibration, yet was so bothered by the vibration of this person who was trying to help me.  Why? I had to take time and look within for answers? What was it in me that I NEED to work on that was being mirrored? Ah, I thought as the answers slowly came.

I am continually amazed as the universe puts people in my path to assist me in my journey to enlightenment. It is the teacher who is continually becoming the student. I am thankful to the powers that be for these opportunities for positive spiritual growth. 

Blessings and a day filled with Love,

Go with the Flow



When you go with the flow, you are truly blessed............................

Nothing rings truer than those few words. As I left my winter dwelling in San Jose Del Cabo I jumped in the car I rented for a couple of days to explore some of the small northern seaside towns.  My finances are not the same as when I worked in technology so I watch my dollars carefully these days as I work on the rounds of edits for The Awakening, the first in the Beyond the Veil of Illusion series and write the next book. Giving up that corporate lifestyle where I was accustomed to a upscale hotels when traveling for business was a personal choice as I follow my dream of waking up my readers to spiritual concepts with my romantic spiritual adventures; it is that labor of love and wanting to make a difference in the lives of others that keeps me going.

I ended up at the most luxurious hotel on the small strip of beach where my travels took me, threw caution to the wind and pulled out my credit card. Instead of living in lack I said what the heck, and for one evening, I would once more have a taste of the luxury afforded to me from a lucrative past.

The room did not disappoint with large marble tile floors and a comfortable king sized bed with six pillows with large floor to ceiling glass doors overlooking the Sea of Cortez.
The restaurant view was just as spectacular and I sat down to enjoy the sunset and ordered a glass of Merlot and bowl of tortilla soup. It was then that something spectacular happened. Because of some interesting twist of fate, I had chance meeting with an incredible woman. We shared stories of love and strength and the universe worked its magic. This woman was a manager at the hotel; they subsequently discounted my room and my meal became complimentary. Best of all I made a great new friend.

I turned on my computer when I returned to the room, wanting to ensure that I shared this will all of you. I am grateful to the blessings of the universe. The only thing that could top this would be kicking back in jeans and a tee shirt sharing a beer with George Clooney at his house in cabo or fishing with him by the arch. lol

I headed back toward San Jose Del Cabo with a smile as the universe reminds me that when you go with the flow, wonderful things can happen. Now here is something that blew me away. The next morning a new friend asked if I would attend a upcoming party hosted by George Clooney at his Mexico beach home since they will be in the UK and cannot go. How exciting! Whether it comes to pass or not, it was a blessing to be thought of in such high regard. Maybe I'll get the chance to go on that fishing trip after all. 



Have a day filled with Love.

Cherish your Friends



I have been fortunate and am grateful for the few true friends I have. How can you tell who they are? I believe that a true friend is someone with whom you share a deep connection. You have similar likes and dislikes. They are the person who drops everything when you need them. They are there for you through good times and bad; listen with care when you are speaking and encourage you when you need a lift. They are one of the handful of persons you reach out to when you want to share good news. They believe in you and they do not judge when you go out with that loser, but are there to pick you up when it’s over.  They are kind, generous and considerate of your feelings. If you lose touch with them, you do not skip a beat when you reconnect.

Some say it is best to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  I do not believe in enemies.  If there is someone whose energy does not resonate with mine, well, I tend to migrate away from that person.

As you rise and greet the sun, remember to also think fondly and cherish your friends. They are the ones with whom you share your energy and keep in your inner circle. Give them a call and tell them how special they are and how blessed you are to have them in your life!

Have a day filled with Love.

Do What You Love


When you do what you love, you experience a fulfillment that exceeds your wildest expectations. I gave up a corporate position where I made a great living but lacked the enjoyment of the position. I was unhappy and had to make a change. I am not going to lie to you and tell you that I was not afraid leaving what was comfortable in search for what gave me satisfaction.  I was, as I summed up the courage to take my life in a new more rewarding direction.  I may not be “rolling in dough” but I have never felt such fulfillment as I meditate, then write in the early morning sun. I write this blog and are getting ready to release edition 2 a novel about spiritualism wrapped around romantic adventures whose underlying message is about love and consciousness as well as the strength of women. Speaking of strength, my heart opened wide when I spoke to my first couple of women’s groups before leaving Sedona for my winter lodging on the southern Baja coast. 

I am blessed and grateful on my path as I watch the whales passing by as I found a quiet spot at a seaside hotel that allows me to use their facility even though I am not one of their guests. This place is filled with generous warm-hearted people and the universe has aligned me with new friends and opportunities to help and serve others here in Mexico. For me, I gain the most satisfaction in those moments of service. I want to thank all my spirit guides for their direction as I continue my journey of discovery and enlightenment.

So I say to you this day, it is never too late to try something new that provides you with joy and satisfaction. What do you have to lose? That which no longer serves you. Walk with courage and take that first step. You may surprise yourself.

Blessings and love to you this and every day!

Women's Strength


I want to speak today about sisterhood. It came in the package of 5 girlfriends from Texas that I spent time with yesterday visiting Mexico for a winter getaway.  I was blessed to spend time with such wonderful sisters. As I walk my path of discovery working on the second book in the Beyond the Veil of Illusion series, I am continually reminded of the strength of women. I am often caught saying, “We are women, strong and mighty.” As women we have this inner strength and energy (Shakti) and are capable to move forward with fortitude in the face of any obstacle. Sharing with these fine ladies yesterday I was once again reminded of just that.

We live, we love, we share, we nurture, we console and we heal; we are the epitome of perfection rolled up in a complete package. We are like a flower and when we are nurtured, we blossom, displaying beauty along with an intoxicating fragrance that infiltrates every being that we encounter with a deliciousness that surpasses any flower.

Blessings and a wonderful day filled with love,

Change Your Focus


There are often times in one’s life where we face a crossroad or feel like we are standing on a cliff. If I had a nickel for every crossroad in life I have faced, well, let’s just say that I would have a pocket full of nickels. And when we hit this crossroad we sometimes are filled with indecision, fear, worry and apprehension. Which way do I turn, left or right? Or do I continue straight? I would be telling you a mistruth if I did not admit that for me most times I am standing at the edge of that cliff looking down at the abyss and wondering, ‘Gee, what the heck am I doing? How did I get here and where do I go now? Will there ever be light at the end of that tunnel?’

Funny, but true I think it is those times when we are feeling so unsure and vulnerable that we are ready for our next growth spurt.  We emerge from the chrysalis, like the butterfly, transformed; a true metamorphosis.  And I believe that if we just take a giant step back and see the entire situation as it has unfolded in its totality, we see it with a new and different focus; and that helps us make sense of it all.  What was so intense and less than positive, becomes that opportunity. Wow, what an interesting concept as I move forward on my own journey and look to those unpleasant situations as learning experiences.  I hope that this posts finds you all well and working toward your little piece of nirvana on Earth.


Love and Blessings,

Great Moments are Shared


Today I want to talk about sharing great moments with family and friends. A moment is like a piece of chocolate cake.  You get more satisfaction and fulfillment when it is shared with new friends.

I was fortunate to have a glimpse into the lives of two Alberta, Canada families vacationing in Mexico. With the day’s festivities complete, they took time to break bread together at a small bistro located at the San Lucas Marina. They had 7 children between them, most under 10 years of age and I must tell you that I have never seen so many well-behaved young people. I can only attribute their outstanding behavior to their wonderfully kind and generous parents. It is these amazing moments spent with those they love that will stay with these parents and children as they continue their journey through life. 

As I watched these two families I was reminded of good times and vacations from my own youth with cousin Kathy and long time family friend Maria and their families. It is the times filled with adventure shared with those closest to you that we remember so fondly.  I know I often speak about living only in the present, but want to clarify that I am not preaching that you should totally block out the past. After all, you are the sum total of all your life’s experiences. 


Do no turn your back on the delicious times of your past; It is these times that help us reconnect with ourselves and those closest to us. Just find the balance and do not obsess or dwell in the past to the point that it effects your ability to live in the present. 

Wishing you a day filled with blessings and love,

Chance Encounters


The universe is funny as we ask to move forward on our path. It's when we are open to flow and vibration that our path is illuminated. Today I'd like to speak briefly about chance encounters. It is with these chance encounters that we sometimes experience exactly what we need to provide us with answers or insight, while perhaps providing the people we meet with the same.

I was truly blessed in recent days to experience several incredible chance encounters with fellow seekers of love and truth. 

It reminded me that we walk, we experience, we observe and sometimes we are urged from our collection of spirit guides to share ourselves and our vulnerabilities and compassion with others. Sometimes it is for our benefit as well as the benefit of others to help us both become more open and move forward. Hey, you never know when you are going to meet an amazing soul who needs a little nudge back on their path or someone who will help nudge you back on yours.

So be open to chance encounters and relish the fact that the universe is guiding you forward, lighting your way.

Blessings and a great day,

Living in the Present


So often in my life I have had it good, yet I always looked to the future. And sometimes I have had it bad, again reliving the scenario over and over in my mind trying to alter my reaction and responses. When I finally realized that you can’t change history and living in the future only keeps us from enjoying the present, I had to stop.

If we only knew that to relive the past or look only forward to tomorrow does us no go. The past is gone forever, so get over it. Tomorrow has not yet happened. I do know one thing: Everyone’s life is full of pleasant and not so pleasant experiences. In my opinion both types of experiences is what we agree to take on as part of our existence on Earth.

By observing them and not reacting, we gain control over the sensations we feel. When we do so, we live in the present, which is a delicious place to be. The present is filled with wonder and excitement to the small things we experience throughout the day, like that first bite into a scrumptious Mexican pastry, or the sunrise on the beach, a gracious hello from a stranger or a smile form a child. Oh, I cannot tell you how grateful you becomes when you start living in the present.

Blessings and a wonderful day to you all,
