Do you see the humanity in each person, situation or expression of life? Everything and everyone has purpose, is trying to thrive, has a point of view. You know how you think within yourself? Everything and every one else does that as well. They may not be aware of their self-talk, but it exists. They know themselves as individualized. If you want to understand your own humanity and tap into your own sweetness, ask yourself what other forms of life are experiencing in that moment. Instead of watching the birds in the bath, feel what it must be like to be among them. Experience the needy anguish of your furry family members to be near you and how it translates differently with dog or cat. Be present with those you meet; not in a too familiar way, but in a silent yet discernible “I understand, I have been there too” kind of way. Do you realize when you have offended your cat by not giving them the proper respect and attention that they deserve when they join you just as you are enthralled in something? Do you recognize when you have insulted your dog; even if he does not? How […]

There is no need to demonize others as a means to validate our stance. Others don’t need to be bad to support the fact that we are good. Others don’t have to be the perpetrators in our life experience. It takes a lot of energy to build a case against someone else and endurance to maintain that conviction. How about this: everyone is right from their point of view. Everyone is just trying to do the best they can at being them. Knowing how difficult life has been for us sometimes, may give us the compassion to know that others struggle too. Connect with others, if you must, in that place of knowing what it feels like to be misunderstood. We are all struggling in some way; every single one of us, in some way or another and in varying degrees. If it is the only commonality that is available, use that to connect with every other being. Connecting to others in this way could be your conduit to a more peaceful sense of being.
When someone asks me for help with something I like to share it, because if one person can benefit from a new understanding, many others possibly can as well. In that way everyone can benefit. I believe this happens on an energetic level as well. Every epiphany, all acts of pure reverence, every form of service, every single solitary exchange of Love is registered and uplifts the consciousness of all. We are all connected and benefit from the joys, triumphs, talents, exuberance and revelations of each other. May we all celebrate in the victories and unencumbered, unabashed, uninhibited, and unlimited victories of all. In so doing so, we celebrate our own place in the universal lattice of life.
I was compelled to bring this little potted fir-tree home with me recently. Once is awhile a plant in a store that is dying of thirst, light deficient, or craving freedom will ask for me to rescue it. I do what I can. But this little tree was healthy and content. It was part of a huge Christmas display at the local grocery store. It was in an entrance way that was swept up in the holiday spirit. I was also compelled to buy lights and special decorations for this little tree. I already had a big tree so it was funny, the strong pull to decorate this little tree. When I got the lights home, I started to realize that this tree was excited to be decorated. It wanted to have the Christmas tree experience. I put some lights on it and a couple of decorations, but it wanted more on it It wanted the whole experience. I had little bows that I could put on it but thought the cats would just pull them off and destroy its branches. The tree assured me they would not. He was right!. My little rascals did not touch one bow or […]
