    True Passion: Feeding, Rather Than Depleting

    I have integrated a great deal of “wisdom”, I believe, the past few days with regard to energy. OH! For certain, I have known a great deal about it for many, many years now. But, we can know things, but really not KNOW things or even how it applies to “real life”, so to speak. Last week, I met with one of my beloved spiritual sisters last, Mona of Beautiful Mind. During our time together we spoke about balancing the four areas of our lives as humans: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual, and what activities I currently engage in each of those areas that “feed” me, feed my own energy as…

    Cultivating Dao: Progress!

    So, I mentioned in my previous post that I’m currently working toward making a large pledge in my process of cultivating Dao. Well, I’m happy to say that I’m making progress!

Thank goodness for index cards! lol I’ve returned to a technique that many of us relied on as kids. Flashcards! The visual really seems to help me.

From the goodness of her heart, she conducts guided meditations which encourage us to breathe deeply.

    Sometimes “Good Enough” IS Enough: A Musing From the Path

    A Happy Monday morning to you, my friend. Did the weekend treat you well? I do hope so. What is on the agenda for today? For me, I’m focusing on self-care, on regaining my equilibrium, physically as well as spiritual. I am grateful that I am not as “out of whack” as I have been in the past. In the past, vertigo has hit me so hard that it would lay me up in bed for days. The belief was that it was an “inner ear infection” brought on by bad drainage of allergies. Over the years, though, I’ve come to realize that while that may be the case, it is…
