The Beauty of Travel

It was a Sunday; last Sunday. I had just returned to Seattle after an impromptu trip to India. Traveling is always illuminating for me, but I’m also glad to be home. My black, heavily worn flip flips—still stained with the red dirt from the streets of Rishikesh—were decommissioned haphazardly by the front door. And, my [...]

Discovering Peace in India

I aimlessly wander the winding footpaths along the Mother Ganga as I prepare to leave Rishikesh. The layered calls of the local merchants selling fruit, trinkets and pashminas blends into a whimsical song. The soothing fragrance of burning wood and incense faintly covers the familiar aroma of cow dung. Occasionally, the voice in my head [...]

A Call to Let Go

It was over ten years ago that I set out with my first living experiment. I wanted to know why change felt so hard. I knew I wanted more freedom to meet life on its own terms. But, I could feel the detrimental pull of habit and how it robbed me of joy. I was [...]

Emerging into Newfound Me-ness

As I walked to the nearby restaurant, I was feeling peaceful, having just recently released some emotion that was obstructing my awareness of love.  Everything seemed lighter. Loving thoughts floated around me like butterflies. I hugged each person as we greeted for dinner, even though [...]

Love…I’m Still Practicing

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” Albert Einstein Over the last ten years, I’ve been on a quest. I’m working on relinquishing fear and inviting more love into my thoughts, words and deeds. [...]

An Invitation to Change our Past

I think most people would say that you can’t change the past. Well, what if I not only told you that this antiquated idea is false, but I could provide you with an experience so that you could form your own opinion? The spark of inspiration for this unusual post came when I received a [...]
