Autumn has peaked in the Northeast. Soon, the remainder of the leaves will fall to the ground, nurture the soil and feed future life. As I write this, the wind shakes the trees and hastens the decent to their final resting place. It’s as if they’ve had enough already and just want to end it […]

Paradise

Sharon was hovering in the middle of a lush, green field that stretched out endlessly to the foot of a horseshoe shaped mountain range. An enormous waterfall cascaded over the side and into the middle of the U shaped valley. It emptied into a crystal clear river that flowed through the field right next to […]

Being Present

Lets drop in on two good friends, Bob and Jim, in the kind of conversation that, unfortunately, happens all too often these days. Bob says, “You know, I’ve been thinking lately. It’s time for a change. Work is stale.” “My life is stale.” Interrupts Jim, head down scrolling through his phone. Bob continues, “I thought […]

Conscious Reincarnation

Last week was Groundhog Day. I know that really isn’t news anymore. I’m not sure if it was even news last week. Notable, however, is that Phil the Groundhog did not see his shadow.

The Warmth and the Glow

On Thanksgiving we gather with family and friends. We show our gratitude for the miracles our lives have been blessed with and we celebrate abundance. Feelings of warmth, comfort, joy and excitement fill our being. Not to mention turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, pasta meatballs and sausage if you’re Italian and a slice of every one […]

Cosmic Music

This dance between the heart and mind is a crazy and wonderful thing. Who leads and who follows? Maybe that depends on the song that’s playing and who has more experience cutting the rug. Lately I’ve been getting the feeling that the tune is about to change in a big way. And I’m not talking […]

Expansive November Energy

Hello November! This year for some reason, the first week of November feels a little like October – at least here in Northern New Jersey. The days have been sunny and the temperatures in the high sixties. I say, keep ‘em coming! Each season has its own way of touching the heart and soul and […]
