All Eyes On Scotland the Brave

September 18th, 2014
I hereby pledge to write an article about Scotland without mentioning haggis, kilts or Mel Gibson, well maybe just haggis which I find nicer than it sounds. What they are deciding in Scotland is serious business, and deserves more than cliches. By the time this article goes live they will likely have already voted and […]
“For introverts, to be alone with our thoughts is as restorative as sleeping, as nourishing as eating. Our motto: “I’m okay, you’re okay—in small doses.” ~ Jonathan Rausch I’m pleased by the recent interest in introverts; both because I AM one and because it’s helped to dispel some myths about introverts. Being an introvert is […]
“Everybody wants to get enlightened but nobody wants to change.” ~ Andrew Cohen Everybody wants to get enlightened but nobody wants to change. It’s a profound truth that ALL you need to do to realize enlightenment is to breathe in and out. It’s equally true that if you forget to do this, enlightenment will be […]
I’ve been wondering about the origin of the phrase “wise guy” and I don’t think it started with the Three Stooges, “Ah, wise guy, eh!” as Moe stuck a couple of fingers in some poor unsuspecting eyes. Its an underground crime term; the good fellas, gangsters, wise guys. Lefty (Al Pacino in Donny Brasco) said, […]
The migration of the monarch butterfly is truly phenomenal. After wintering in a favorite tree in Mexico, they fly up to 3,000 miles to southern Canada, with a little loving in the milkweed fields along the way. Sometimes these tiny wonders fly as far as 100 miles in a day. At the end of the […]

Needs Versus Wants

August 14th, 2013
In the Dave Matthews song, Jimi Thing, he’s feeling a little lost. In his search he says, What I want is what I’ve not got. And what I need is all around me. We suffer so much because we confuse needs and wants. We confuse needs and wants because we confusing being with having. We […]

Spirituality and Fun

April 1st, 2013
Spirituality is best practiced with humility and playfulness, like kids in a sandbox exploring the boundaries of imagination and possibility. Fun is not just fun, although it IS that. Fun is a pathway to enLIGHTenment, by lightening your anxiety, loosening your attachments and letting go of the need to be right. Fun and laughter are powerful spiritual tools […]

The Prize of Surprise

March 18th, 2013
A couple goes for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and orders the Chicken Surprise. The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot. Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises lightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the […]

Who Are You?

March 6th, 2013
Who are you? It’s a strange question to answer. Usually we think of something we do, something we did, or a way we like to be seen. Anthony de Mello tells the story about a woman in a coma who has a near death experience. She hears a voice.  “Who are you?” the voice says […]

Getting Beyond Labels

February 8th, 2013
One of my favorite scenes in the cult movie The Blues Brothers is when Jake and Elwood and the band impersonate The Good Ole Boys at an out of the way bar called Bob’s Country Bunker. They look around suspiciously and ask the owner what sort of music they usually offer. She says, “Oh, we […]
Did Jesus have a wife? It’s become quite a meme in the last week, since a tiny scrap of ancient papyrus showed up with the words, “Jesus said, my wife…..” Let’s assume he did have a wife, and ask the question, “What would Jesus wife say?” Here are some of the funnier possibilities I’ve read […]

Waking Up To Wonder

August 20th, 2012
How long does it take you to wake up in the morning? I’m not talking about opening your eyes. I’m talking about opening your mind and letting it be blown by the wonder of being alive. Often, we are still asleep when we get out of bed. We leave the house and amble through the […]
In “The 2000 Year Old Man” Mel Brooks plays the 2000 year old man. He is interviewed while at Mayo Clinic for a checkup. At one point in the interview he is asked, “Did you always believe in God?” Brooks replied: “No. We had a guy in our village named Phil, and for a time […]

God in a Yoga Pose

June 14th, 2012
One of the Hebrew names for God is 4 letters put together. Yud, hey, vav and hey, or Y, H, V and H, make up the name “Yahweh”. Is it just me or do the four letters Y, H, V and H look like yoga moves? Take another look! It brings alive the idea of […]
