Enjoy LIfe – It Expires!

This has been around the email circuit before..but worth repeating….. The Power of Perception In Washington , DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, this man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2,000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After about 3 minutes: A middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule. About 4 minutes...

Happiness Revealed

A friend forwarded me a link to a YouTube video along with these eight words… “The best 10 minutes I spent all week!!” After the week I’ve just had, I was thinking I could sure use a great 10 minutes, so I decided to check it out.

People all over the world have been reflecting on the impact, the legacy, and the wisdom he left us. We thought it would be fitting to share some of his most famous quotes. “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can...

Forgive and Forget?

Forgive and Forget?

A while back I gave a talk about the necessity of forgiveness if we are to live emotionally happy and spiritually healthy lives.  I said something that seemed to surprise some people and I was asked to clarify what I meant when I said, “It is not possible to forgive and forget.”  A spirited discussion followed the services, with some agreeing and some arguing that true forgiveness means you must also forget. I told a story about a time I interviewed Dr. Wayne Dyer on my radio show “Vision for a Better World.”  The...

The Amazing Power of Raw Food

If you want to experience ridiculous amounts of energy, crystal clear mental clarity, more creativity and outrageous joy, raw food is the way to do it. I went raw about three years ago now, and experienced a radical shift in my overall health and well-being. I lost 10 lbs within a month and 20 lbs within 6 months, my energy went through the roof, and the abnormal cells that the doctor had discovered were gone. Besides that, my hot flashes disappeared, I require less sleep, and I found a deeper Spiritual connection. Although, most of the three...

Believing the Impossible

Believing the Impossible

I was thinking this morning about something that was written in Alice in Wonderland, where the Queen says to Alice, “Alice, tell me what happened tomorrow.” Alice says, “I can’t tell you what happened tomorrow. It’s impossible to tell you what happened tomorrow.” And the Queen says to Alice, “My dear, I would dare say you simply have not had much practice. Why, when I was your age, I used to practice believing ten impossible things before breakfast. And besides that Alice, it’s a pretty poor memory that only works in one...
