The Value of Friendship

Many of us will remember as children being told what to, and what not to talk about with others.  Many times, I remember being yelled at by my mother for talking about, what to me, seemed like a small incident or occurrence in the house.  What made it worse for me, is that somehow the … Continue reading The Value of Friendship

When We Want a Different Answer…

Often in life, we find ourselves repeating the same behaviors every time certain emotional issues come up.  These behaviors can be damaging, both to ourselves, and to those around us.  We know that these behaviors are not working, and yet, we keep doing the same things expecting a different response - a change somewhere else … Continue reading When We Want a Different Answer…

Seeing the Illusion to Create Paradise

Every day I see headlines in the news, and I wonder how much of it is true.  I see so many people who have been brainwashed into believing a particular viewpoint based on what may very well be a lie.  The illusion has been so well built into our system, that even when we are … Continue reading Seeing the Illusion to Create Paradise

Finding Common Ground

In life, we tend to see things as very separate.  In reality, everything is connected, and everything is related.  It's a challenging thought.  To imagine that everything in the Universe is related.  Everything is connected.  When we really look at it close, however, it becomes very simple.  We just need to look at commonalities. If … Continue reading Finding Common Ground

We have all known people that are envious of … Continue reading Dedication and Focus
