How Much Do We Need To Let Go Of?

Today let’s consider this conversation:“How much do we need to let go of?” a friend asked one day. “I’m not certain,” I replied, “but maybe everything.” Letting go is a spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical process, a sometimes mysterious metaphysical process of releasing to our Higher Power and the Universe that which we are clinging…

The Power of Doing Your Soul’s Work

Good morning! Today let’s consider that creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. Ambition is only understood if it is to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords them the time to pursue other interests and…

Moving Through, Moving On & Growing

Hi friends! Today let’s consider how long are we going to hold on to the things that are not working in our best interests? Things that are not fulfilling? Things that are no longer productive?

Everyone is going through something or knows someone who is.

Why is listening an important skill to cultivate?
