The Freedom of Uncertainty

I had a very humbling experience last week. I thought I knew a lot about a subject, i.e., that I was fairly expert with it. I was talking with another person who works in the same field that I do, and we were sharing our understandings about some teachings related to our work. I realized in that discussion that I had a huge blind spot that I had totally missed.… Read More »The Freedom of Uncertainty

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

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?

Live Your Purpose and Allow Your Unique Calling to Be Revealed 

I invite you to consider the possibility that our true purpose is to be happy (contented, feeling complete), fulfilled, loving and peaceful, i.e., to live life fully! With that as our purpose and foundation, we can proceed to allow our unique calling to be revealed to us. I often refer to our unique calling as Unique Divine Expression. 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

Bringing Wisdom to These Times

Bringing Wisdom to These Times

With all that is occurring right now, many of us are Hurting Grieving Feeling vulnerable Afraid Exhausted We might not think it’s ok to admit these feelings – in business anyway. We want it all to end, for things to get better, possibly to turn away. We want our seeming security back. We want answers, direction, healing, a plan. We’re brokenhearted over what is happening to ourselves, those we care… Read More »Bringing Wisdom to These Times

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

Welcome to Keep the Fire Burning

I believe that we all know who and how we’d truly like to be in this world, but that we don’t pause long enough to listen, explore and then live that way; or, we don’t trust that it’s possible.  The purpose of this blog is to support us all in becoming the human beings we’re longing to be for ourselves and for each other.  In that way, we can create… Read More »Welcome to Keep the Fire Burning
