November in the U.S.A. has a national holiday known as Thanksgiving. For me it’s a time of reflection on my journey of life and all those that have touched me. We are often carried away by our emotions and don’t always realize the significant parts people play in our lives.
A Perspective on Seasons By Sree Pallavi Thota When I first came to the USA many years ago, it was in the middle of winter. It was such a contrast from India and quite a shock when I saw huge trees with no leaves or no flowers. Back in India, when I lived far [...]
Per aspera ad astra You can be unhappy anywhere. You don’t have to move across the ocean or across the country, you don’t have to leave your relationship or move from your home. The sad truth is that wherever you go, you carry Your Self with You. Your fears, hopes, expectations, delusions, mistakes…yes, they [...]
We often take what we call "Road Trips", where we jump in the car in the early morning and head off to some unvisited destination returning home under the cover of darkness.
In early February of this year, I started thinking about planning a spring vacation to Palm Springs. A friend of mine recently retired there, and I was keen to visit. I love the desert and wanted an escape from the rainy northwest. I have been to Palm Springs several times and resonate with its myriad of activities and charm.
Spiritual Meaning of Pets Having in mind my extraordinary private story about animals and pets, I have an urge to write it down and share it publicly, even though my rational mind is saying “No", it's not that important. But, I feel it is. As a child I was drawn to animals a lot, [...]
Since I retired from 9-1-1 Dispatching, I've spent the last year and a half trying to decide what I wanted to do next. I'd been "responsible" and held down a steady job for 25 years, so I thought this was my opportunity to follow my heart and do something that involved something I've always [...]
After suffering from severe neck and shoulder pain for almost 3 years, during which I could not move my head, could not sleep properly and could hardly do anything without feeling pain, I am happy to say that I have recovered about 95%. The reason why I said 95% and not 100% is because there is [...]
Fork in the Road by Laura Elliott Do you ever feel like this person in the picture? I sure have!! Full disclosure, I do right now! There are points we get to in our lives when we must make a decision, and I don't mean chocolate or vanilla ice cream, or Star Wars or [...]
Focus On Your Own Plate! A strong urge to change my life came with the solar eclipse this January. My unhappiness with a placement in life became unbearable. I knew that the approaching lunar eclipse would bring me to my knees, so I reached out to Jean in the hope of getting a different [...]
Life Goes On It is incredible, July is gone, 7 months of the year has flown by like a wink of an eye. Where does time go and what has transpired for each of us on our journey. For me it’s hard to believe that Margaret and Maitreya departed my life 2 years ago [...]
Perfection© By Dennis Dossett In last June’s newsletter, I wrote about “ (“Lessons and Tests”) ,” the main point of which was that we chose our life lessons before we incarnated in order to provide an opportunity to grow into a better version of ourselves (aka, soul evolution). Last month's newsletter was devoted to [...]
Changes This last month has really brought a lot of change to our lives. An opportunity arose for us in New Orleans, so we packed our bags and off we went. I wish it was that simple, but putting our noses to grind stone and expending a lot of energy to pack, drive and [...]
Time flies so fast, in a blink, here comes 2018. Although I wondered where the year 2017 went, looking back I still cannot believe that I actually have gone through a lot of changes and some incredible life experiences! In the beginning of 2017 I was not in good shape or condition since Margaret’s [...]
I would like to take a moment to wish you all a most joyous and blessed New Year! I don't do new years resolutions because let's face it, how many of us actually stick with them and see them all the way through? What I will say is that I will do my best [...]
