Happiness Is

Happiness Is

My ideas of happiness are small. I base them on my tiny experiences within my little world of trying to please all the people around me. I think I know what’s best for me, but, alas, most of the time I don’t have a clue. The things that I think will make...
The Call for Love

The Call for Love

I’ve never been to Boston. I’ve never seen its sights, soaked in the history, walked its streets. I’ve always wanted to, but haven’t yet. And hearing the news yesterday didn’t make me want to stay away, it made me sad, but it didn’t...
Calm Came Back

Calm Came Back

The calm is coming back… I had been tense, on edge, impatient. I had peace too long I think. And when you have peace too long, it can be tempting to let the darkness creep back. Just to see. Just to see if it’s still there. Well, it is as long as I believe...
Just for Today

Just for Today

Just for today I will commit to FUN…to laughter, to turning my face to the sun. Just for today I will let go…I will breathe deeply, allow and flow. Just for today I will see love in all…in the grace of a moment, the rise and the fall. Just for today...
What Makes a Writer?

What Makes a Writer?

I have no freaking clue. That’s why I’m asking you. Anyway, I’m asking because there are times I feel like I’m playing make-believe. And at some level I know that I am. From A Course in Miracles perspective it’s all make-believe, but...
Free, Regardless

Free, Regardless

There is this natural drive within me to be successful.  I want it.  I want to make money at what I love.  I want my work to reach millions, to help people, to uplift them. Or do I? I do, but there’s an underlying ego thing…kind of like a virus.  It wants...
What I Really Want

What I Really Want

It all comes down to this: I want to be peaceful.  And from this there is no turning back.  I cannot say that I want success, romantic love, wealth or notoriety without feeling that nudge within that says “Really?  Is that what you really want?”  No.  I...
Peace is My Trampoline

Peace is My Trampoline

I spend so much time in the air, grasping at clouds, ducking from rain.  I forget: Peace is my trampoline. I focus on the bounce and not the solid surface below on which I land, every time.  Without fail….every time. There is nothing except that which lies...
Where a Miracle is Born

Where a Miracle is Born

I can’t do this anymore.  I need help.  I’ll listen.  Come again, I will listen! You tell me none of it is real.  You say that only love is, so why does all of this hurt so much? It’s your belief in it that brings you pain.  That’s where it...
I am Ready

I am Ready

“I have to know I can be happy without you,” I say quietly. He tilts his head and smiles. “You would be.” And I believe him.  He is the one who knows me best. The world’s idea of love can make you crazy…if you let it.  I’m...
