We Tell People Who We Are with Our Being

Without even saying a word, we are “telling” people who we are. I was watching the second episode of The Old Man with Jeff Bridges on FX when Bridges’ character was sharing with another character some wisdom he had learned as he was cooking her a special dish.  He spoke to the difference between talking about who we are and how our being is always revealing who we are.  (Note:… Read More »We Tell People Who We Are with Our Being

Ready to Begin the Real Journey?

When we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. -Wendell Berry Different questions arise at this point. Different quality of questions. Different focus of questions. Different relationship with the Universe, Source, Consciousness, Awareness, God’s Infinite Being.

Are We Ready for the World We Truly Want?

I watched a television event Sunday night that was created to support the people of Ukraine. A group of Broadway singers ended with “All You Need Is Love.”  Earlier in the day as I was contemplating how to engage more meaningfully due to grave concerns about the direction of the country in which I live, I picked up a book I had purchased recently entitled I, Citizen, A Blueprint for… Read More »Are We Ready for the World We Truly Want?

What might come up about now are the considerations that we often… Read More »Live Your Purpose and Allow Your Unique Calling to Be Revealed 

Thank You, Thank You Part 2

In last week’s article, I offered “thank you” as a mantra (or prayer, using the word of Meister Eckhart) that we can say throughout the day. “Thank you tree,” “thank you Sam,” “thank you computer,” and so on.  The focus of the thank you mantra in that article was on objects, nature, people, animals. That’s all well and good. However, I missed something … really two somethings. One is our… Read More »Thank You, Thank You Part 2

Thank You, Thank You

Meister Eckhart, a German Catholic theologian, philosopher and mystic is quoted as saying, “If the only prayer you say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”  I recently heard a talk by Robin Wall Kimmerer, who describes herself as a “mother, scientist, decorated professor, and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation,” and is the author of the beautiful book, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge… Read More »Thank You, Thank You

Enrich Your Organization As You Enrich Our World

In the last few weeks we’ve all seen and/or experienced devastating horrors — people killing, maiming and mistreating one another. We’ve felt fear and shock and heartbreak as well as courage and empathy. No matter where we live or what our work is, we can influence where we go from here. In fact, it is up to each one of us. President Obama, Dallas Police Chief David Brown and many… Read More »Enrich Your Organization As You Enrich Our World
