Practice Miracle-Readiness

This is my cliff notes for A Course in Miracles:  Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists.  Herein lies the peace of God.  A Course in Miracles is over a 1,000 page combined volume of text and lessons.  This will be at least a 6 month study for me.  After each chapter, I will type what I have highlighted for contemplation.

A Call for Love | are you available?

A Bell You Shall Be | a meditation for parents is my most popular post to date.  This is interesting on several fronts, and most especially because it is closest to my heart and it is profoundly simple.  It is not some great intellectual piece, it has zero research to substantiate it, and carries a message that every conscious parent is trying to hear.  Here’s an invitation to you to capture the essence and expand on the premise of A Bell You Shall BeRead the rest of this entry »

A Bell You Shall Be | a meditation for parents

When conditions are sufficient, you manifest peace.

My Dearest Children,

It is your nature to reflect reality as-it-is.  When conditions are sufficient, you manifest peace.  When conditions are insufficient, you manifest ill-ease. Read the rest of this entry »

Not Busy and Not Sorry | Mindfulness

Heaven's reflection on Earth

Heaven's reflection on Earth

Thank you to two dear friends who are learning to live and love more fully, and sharing it with others.  One has simply summed it up for us:  “I am not busy, and I am not sorry.”  And the other has beautifully written it in a poem.  They essentially say the same thing.  One may resonate more clearly for you, so I share both.

4 Ways to More Vacation Time without Busting the Budget

You may travel the world looking for beauty, love, and happiness. You will come home empty, unless you carry it in your heart.

Blisscipline is my practice of maintaining mind, body, and spirit.  It’s like being on vacation every day.  I wake-up early to prepare my mind, body, and spirit for the day.  It usually includes a short yoga and meditation, and planning my day with intention and purpose – to maintain this alignment throughout the day.  Who says I can’t live like this, guilt free?

Recipe for Love

Colorado stream

"Don't say no; Go with the flow." ~ Henry's favorite intention

If feeding love grows happy kids (revisit Feed Love | Grow Happy Kids), then let’s exchange some recipes for love.

One of my favorites is Deepak Chopra’s, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents.  He takes big, cosmos concepts and states them in 7 simple statements of intention.  The idea is that this makes it easy to share with our children.  The truth is:  this makes it easy for us to learn and then role model to our children.  Read the rest of this entry »
