A Thread of Compassion

I am watching a web of very strong reactions be spun from beliefs colored in fear, justice, love, resignation, pacifism, anger, hate, division, and unity with the announcement of Bin Laden’s death on Sunday. On the news, I see celebrations in the streets, anti-this-and-that propaganda, and cycles of images of dead people.  Facebook and social…

i choose…what I have chosen.

Attitude is Everything

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gifted ability,…

What if you were given the EXACT body and personality needed to fulfill your full potential?  What if every last part of you was of intentional design?  Yes, I’m talking even about those parts of yourself and myself that we hate or want to disown sometimes. …Like I will never have a flat lower belly…
