Feeling Stuck?  How About Taking Your Sole With You?

Feeling Stuck? How About Taking Your Sole With You?

Ever felt stuck, like you’re going nowhere?  Do you feel like doing more or being more?  Feel like you’ve left your soul behind?  You’ve been thinking about taking the rebel route but don’t know how or when to let go?  How about you stop torturing yourself, start planning, and do what your heart says to(…)

3 Awesome Tools to Get Over Hurdles of Not Wanting to Run

3 Awesome Tools to Get Over Hurdles of Not Wanting to Run

It’s good to be back in the USA and South Florida.  Let’s say, this country has been good to me, and as the song from Lee Greenwood says, God Bless the USA!  Since my return a few days ago, I’ve hit the ground running.  So far, I’ve deposited 4 days into my health-bank, and have(…)

Straight To The Grave

“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” ~~Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NIV)~~   Not sure wher else you’re going, if not the grave.  It is everyone’s fate.  This is what I said to myself yesterday after(…)

A RESURRECTION OF LOVE

A RESURRECTION OF LOVE

Sometimes you have to lay down your burden and surrender (crucify) them to the truth of the matter—which if contemplated deeply, you’ll find they are only thoughts.  Otherwise, how can one have atonement and exist in the space where Love finds you worthy to point you to the way out of your desert (resurrection)?
