The Love Portal - September 24, 2019 at 8:11am
Its all around us
And collects in an everlasting pool
Around our hearts
A portal of love
Step through, I faintly hear
Why don’t you, is whispered
Did you know that you were love?
That we all are?
I know our eyes mist over with the visible desperation and destruction
You are love
They are love
It is Love
With what proof?
The wounds question
Shh, I hear whispered
Need not pay mind to the false power of disbelief
You have felt love
If only for a...more

Inside of our hearts lies a connection to all that is good and pure. It is where the divine, god, infinite source resides. It’s is where we are all connected.

I AM THE LIGHT
WE ARE THE LIGHT TOGETHER.

Walking in Peace - A Simple Hope for the New Year
Today I hope that we begin our new year with finding and practicing serenity. My intention is that we, as a collective work on walking together-in peace. Everywhere we go and in every situation. Let us set a peaceful existence for ourselves and actively remind ourselves to radiate peace. It takes intention. It takes practice. And then it becomes effortless.
Where do you find yourself most filled with peace? Is it somewhere you have been fortunate enough to visit or is it a vision of somewhere luxurious? Wherever it is...today is your day to be there. Finding serenity and peace...more
Until We Achieve Our Missions
In the nonprofit sector there will always be something critical to deal with.
Things will always feel pressing and more important than the very last action you just took.
You will long for the day when you can casually sip coffee on a Wednesday morning and easily mull over your to do list with a sense of lightness. You may strive for this moment every day as you knock things off your to do list with the swish of your yellow highlighter. And while this will bring you one step closer to the possibility of serenity, you remain equally farther away.
It's really an...more

Leaders Say What Needs to Be Said, By Greg Richardson
There are times when we want our leaders to speak for us. We expect leaders to be insightful and articulate, to know what to say and to say it well. There are leaders from history whose words still speak to us, and for us.
We hope our leaders will be able to put ideas and feelings...more
It's Easy to Throw In the Towel
It is easy to throw in the towel on your dream.
Day after day we talk ourselves out of the possibilities of what should be. We take many actions, receive a few bites of confirmation and the cycle continues. We are impatient, we get tired, and it becomes much easier to give in to the way of non-believing. The incessant chatter that accompanies the journey is what taunts us to stop. It is mean spirited and says nasty things. It heckles us to keep living a small, comfortable life envious of anyone who has made it past the shallow water into the deep end of the pool. It is easier...more

The nightmare my mother experienced after my sister was killed in a tragic accident by a runaway car whose driver fell asleep at the wheel was harrowing. In less than a minute her first born daughter/best friend was gone. Living felt impossible, but she did it.
Immediately after Donna's funeral, my mother never returned home. She moved in with Donna's family to help them heal. For months she had the distraction of helping her grandsons but that was only temporary. Mom eventually had to return to her life and was again destroyed when she went home to the deafening...more
