Happy New Moment

       Prone to habit, we attach to repetitive patterns of thought and action, holding them as if they are real.  They become our story, oft-repeated conclusions about ourselves and the world.  Forgetting the creative possibilities in each new moment, we hang on to the familiar - even when it no longer serves us.

       In Present Moment Wonderful Moment, Thich Nhat Hanh writes:  "We can practice beginning anew at any moment of our lives.  To be born is to begin anew.  When you are three years old you can begin anew, when you are sixty years old you can begin anew, and when you are about to die, you can still begin anew."

Adventure's afoot.

Happy New Year.  Happy New Moment!

Merry Christmas

       As we celebrate, once again, a very special birth, we are inspired to ponder life's mystery and to replicate, in a spiritual way, that birth in our hearts.

       For me, Christmas is an invitation to Christ-consciousness, an invitation to remember what Jesus so completely realized:  We are one with God and one with each other - always have been, always will be.

       May this season bring you wonder and renewal, peace and softening, joy and loving connection.

Humble Uplift

Two unrelated ideas
Paid a visit
This morning:

One humbling,
One uplifting,
Both somehow comforting.

       A spiritual path, no matter how profound or liberating, provides little immunity from human goofiness - as our partners on the journey can well attest.

       A heartfelt act of kindness, no matter how small or inconspicuous, touches all hearts and adds to an expanding universe of love.

Follow your path.
Embrace goofiness.
Keep loving.
