In the process of living, the winds of circumstances blow on us all in an unending flow that touches each of our lives. We have all experienced the blowing winds of disappointment, despair and heartbreak. Why, then, would each of us, in our own individual ship of life, all beginning at the same point, with the same intended destination in mind, arrive at such different... Continue reading

At Christmas time, I always want to give and give and give--yet my finances rarely allow me to give as abundantly as I would like. That's okay by me--things are as they are--but sometimes I do like to think about the things that I would give if I could. Interestingly enough, most of the gifts end up not having anything to do with money at... Continue reading

What do we give to our children? First we give them the most precious of all gifts: the principles of brotherly love and the love of God, as taught so many years ago by Christ, whose birth we celebrate. We give them our attention; for one day it will be too late. We give them a sense of value. A place for the individual in... Continue reading

Christmas is for love. It is for joy, for giving and sharing, for laughter, for reuniting with family and friends, for tinsel and brightly decorated packages. But mostly, Christmas is for love. I had not believed this until a small elf-like student with wide-eyed innocent eyes and soft rosy cheeks gave me a wondrous gift one Christmas. Mark was an 11-year-old orphan who lived with...

You are not how others have at one time treated you. You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. You... Continue reading

You must be what it is that you’re seeking. This is a universe of attraction and energy. You can’t have a desire to attract a mate who’s confident, generous, non-judgmental, and gentle, and expect that desire to be manifested if you’re thinking and acting in nonconfident, selfish, judgmental, or arrogant ways… Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and likeminded. Relationships should help... Continue reading

It's fine to work toward future goals, but don't forget that today will never come again. You have only twenty-four hours to enjoy it. Some people put life on hold while striving for their dreams. At first their theme song is, "After I attain ______, then I'll be happy." Then, later, after the success of attaining pales, the regrets are felt. "Why didn't I take... Continue reading

Do you ever feel like life is spinning out of control? That the harder you try to get ahead the more you just barely get by? If so, maybe it's time for you to think aboutquitting life -- that elusive thing that we chase after and strive for -- and, instead, start living. It can be a difficult distinction to understand, I know, but making... Continue reading

Rule 1: Let's fill our minds with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope, for "our life is what our thoughts make it." Rule 2: Let's never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let's do as General Eisenhower does: let's never waste a minute thinking about people we don't like.... Continue reading

Your attitudes are your choice. It's that simple. "Yes," you say, "but what about when people do bad things to me no matter what my attitude is?"

Step 1. Stop thinking everyone else has it better. You know it when you think it: "They drive a cleaner car, have more cash in the bank, have a bigger shoe collection, a better job, a book deal, a better body, a new baby," or whatever else you think you see or assume is true of someone else's life. Everyone’s life appears to be perfect... Continue reading

We're made, mostly, by the people who surround us. We make each other every day. I'm constantly telling this to people. They say, "Oh, loving is so difficult." I say, "Don't you know how easy it is? Loving is simple. It's we who are complex." Loving means offering the hassled waitress a "Thank you. That was great." I ate recently at a real greasy spoon... Continue reading

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies... Continue reading

When you find the things in life worth dying for, you begin to find your spiritual family. Finding my spiritual family has been a challenge. I doubt if being with any family is ever really easy. In many ways, family relationships can be more painful than social or business relationships. So before you rush out and start finding long-lost spiritual relatives, let me pass on...
