My Third Story   It’s been over five years since I started to write Imprinted Wisdom. Like any other writer who has a story that burns within, I had challenges. My first challenge was that I wasn’t a writer. And through the love and passion to share my tragic story, I...

I was reminded today that the ocean is a natural habitat for a fish. Just as air is to a bird and the earth is to a tree. “But what about you and me?” I wondered. “Is there a natural habitat for us? And, if there is, what is it?” I made that thought the source of my morning meditation. Half way...

Maybe you don’t have any trouble with your thoughts, but I do. Thoughts pop into my mind without my permission faster than a mosquito bites my skin on a sweltering summer afternoon. And, equally without my permission. Descartes, father of modern philosophy, pointed to both the distinguishing...

In life, we experience two kinds of fear: real fear, and psychological fear. Or, as I prefer to think of the latter, ego-fear.

  My spiritual mentor, Eckhart Tolle, writes, "Even belief in God is a poor substitute for the reality of God manifesting in your daily life" (from The Power of Now). For decades, I lived with beliefs about God but I cannot say with certainty that I lived with any kind of consciousness of God'...

The extinction of religion? Novel thought indeed. Frankly, I find it hard to imagine such a thing could even be possible. And that probably has something to do with the fact that I live in America, where religion, if it is anything, is in vogue. Or is it? Not according to the findings. Religion...
