I had a dream some years ago of being a radiant candle in the dark, all alone. And then, seeing smaller candles all being lit from the fire of my own candle one by one. Eventually, there I stood with millions of brilliant, beautiful candles also shining in their beauty all together as one. As separate candles they all were illuminating such a radiant light that there was no longer the illusion of darkness, only radiant, flickering light that emanated from all the collective candles standing together. If there was ever a reminder of the immense potentiality we have to uplift and remember the truth of our being, I believe this is my vision for our world.

We all have such amazing beauty and grace, but it gets lost in our anger, fear, envy, doubt. Therefore, we become the darkness wondering why our lives are not the promise we once believed it could be. We get so caught up in our suffering that we lose our ability to create joy and happiness in our lives and the lives of others. The day to day living keeps us so disillusioned about ourselves that it becomes impossible to remember that we are the light for ourselves and for the people we are in relationship with. We have good intentions that turn into disheartened frustrations because we cannot express the potentiality we know we have. In our sadness and anger we continue to create more suffering. We become so embraced by darkness that we forget there is abundance, joy and happiness. We have become so good at creating such disease in ourselves that we can't remember how to create joy or how to really laugh.

I challenge you in this month to remember Your light. You only need to look into the summer sky to remember how bright and brilliant you too can be in your own life. As you begin each day, be grateful that just as the sun has come to give another day, you too will be a conduit of light in your own life. And as you greet yourself in the mirror, celebrate your inherent beauty to be a source of light to others you meet throughout your day. And most important, feel the radiant beauty of the truth of your being. Look within and see how you too are that candle in the darkness that is uplifting yourself and others to express this aspect of the self. Make a promise to be the radiant light in your own life, and erase your own suffering and discomfort, just as light erases the darkness.

We all were brought together to illuminate as a collective whole, to be the guiding light for others to find the Truth of their radiance.

This dream continues to be a reminder of the immense power we all hold within ourselves to support others to find their own fire. Through our love and care taking we are able to enrich not only or own fire, but also help others to find the Truth of their nature, that of radiant light. I wish you many moments of the gifts of your "self" as the radiant person you were meant to be in your own life and in the world.

Love & Life,


Teachable Moments -


Your address, your bed, your body, your bookshelf. Take a walk, take a hike, take a step away from stagnating jobs, relationships and life patterns. Change perspective. Move closer to people who meet you with authenticity and nourish your wildest dreams. You don't have to move mountains, shifting a single pebble can work wonders.

Touch the part of your own body that you love. Embrace in the bakery, in the parking lot, in the doorways all over town. Kiss people on the cheek. Stroke your cat more, pet your dog more. Savor the sensation of a silky scarf, of a well-sanded piece of wood, of the triad of textures in an Almond Joy. Moss, bark, rocks and the water work, too. The more you do it, the less you bump up against the "ouch" in touch.

Sit in silence and see how much there is to hear. Listen to people. What are they really saying? Listen to the very last notes of every song. Listen to your own inner voice - the one you hear only when the dim of every day is diminished. Hear the rustle of a leaf, the call of a bullfrog, the pop and crackle of your wood stove. Listen with your toes, listen with your heart and always listen to that which is never spoken.

Feel the pain, feel the joy, until you feel you'll surely evaporate. Stop holding back from laughing with your belly, loving from the deepest places of your heart, swooning with the sensuality of life itself. When another's disregard or arrogance enrages you, feel the anger rise up and roar! If you're not truly feeling, you're not truly alive - you're just going through the motions.

Stop second-guessing yourself. You know what you know, you know? That inner tickling is your highest truth. It will serve you well; the backfire comes when you deny or discount it. Take in information, from all sides, yet trust, in the end, that you - and you alone - know what's best for you. If all day you pine to paint, then that is what you must do. If you ache to walk beside the ocean, find a way to get there. Without complete trust, you are left only to rust.

Gather together with women and men you love. Sip tea together, walk in the woods together, talk and talk and talk, read aloud to each other, do absolutely nothing together. Revel in how your hair and your skin and your bodies and your stories are so different - and so utterly alike. Cook and eat together, stand beside the washing machine and cry and hug and wail together. And most assuredly, laugh together until your sides ache.

For once, stop giving, giving, giving to everyone but yourself. Accept a compliment with grace. Voice what you need - be it a hug, a moment of talk, food for your table, a loan of money - and know that it will be provided. Loosen your white-knuckled, stressed-out grasp on life, and then let the palms of your hands fill to overflowing. Know that you deserve all you receive, and remember to show your gratitude for the sheer magnificence of a life lived well.

  2. 2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings".
  3. 3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
  4. 4. And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.
  5. 5. You should not confuse your career with your life.
  6. 6. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.
  7. 7. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy.

    Failure is always a safe, familiar, no-risk refuge, a known experience it focuses on new of testing responsibilities upon one. Success, on the other hand, is unknown territory and a high-risk business; the very life-style it imposes is full of relentless demands for even better performances and achievements. Anon
