It would seem as though in the absence of thought, nothing happens. I've been coming to understand that it is there where everything happens. Anything worth happening, anyway.
I applied for a full-time instructor position in December. It was a long shot. I hadn't thought about applying - didn't want to just go through the motions when I knew the job wouldn't be given to me. There were too many people in line ahead of me. Too many people more qualified. People began … Continue reading FULLtime
The last few months have been the longest rainy season I think I've experienced anywhere. Last night there was lightning and thunder, and it will rain throughout most of the day. Unconditional love - first, loving myself and not making anyone else responsible for my happiness; second, loving people and things for who/what they are … Continue reading Unconditional

Yesterday, I made the choice to embrace my authentic power Today, I used my authentic power to be my authentic self Tomorrow, I'll remember yesterday
I relearned an important lesson this week: God never allows death without simultaneously breathing new life - to surrender is to both release and receive.
