Sometimes, one of the hardest things we can do is let go of our mind’s expectations, and simply go with the flow. Go with the flow and ride the wave of whatever may come, knowing it’s in  service of our greatest good.  Hard to do, I know.  But worth the investment of time it takes […]

The courage to create

Some say there is no journey.  The healing path is actually something we create ourselves, as we place one metaphorical foot in front of the other in the direction of our growth and transformation. I’m not sure how I feel about this.  It kind of takes the mystery and magic out of the transformational process.  At any […]

I haven’t always liked poetry.  Quite the contrary, I avoided it.  It made no sense.  There was no felt connection between the writer’s creative expression and my heart.  I lived without it for most of my life.  And now, for some reason, I enjoy it. Some of it, that is.  Some of it really resonates with me now, and […]

While the poem ‘The Guest House’ is not from the Yoga tradition itself, its spirit is in line with the Yogic view of psychological healing, that is to welcome into the present moment whatever it is we may be feeling (in a way that brings no harm to ourself or others), knowing that doing so, […]
