Life on Life's Terms

This is a reflection on Robert Ohotto's question, "Can you accept life on Life's terms?"

Days Like These

The healing journey requires periods of acclimatization. Some days are harder than others. 

My Life is a _____Journey

If life is a journey, what kind of journey are you on? 

Being Productive Without The Exhaustion

What happens when you go, go, go and run out of gas? 

What Get's You Out of Bed?

Not having work be my purpose for getting out of bed each morning, I wondered what exactly was getting me up and going each morning.  

Grief's Ghost

Have you buried your grief, only to find that the ghost of grief still haunts you? Grief emerged as an issue for me during a guided meditation. 

I Didn't Know I Needed to Change...Until I Did

The Ancient Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, is quoted to have said, "The only constant is change." Still we resist. What is your relationship like with change? 

Fifteen Minutes

"What would you do if you only had 15 minutes to live?" It wasn't the question from Dr. Bernie Siegel, but rather my answer that started the neurosynaptic reflection process. I wondered, "What is it about joy or lack of joy, that affects a person's overall well-being?"

Healing and Cancer: Food for Thought

There is a strong tendency to focus on dietary habits and cancer; prevention (or not) and cure (or not). Nutritional choices have a role, but there are more factors to be considered. If cancer is a "call for change", my soul prayer is "Reveal to me what in my life am I meant to change." Healing for me does not mean that I will not die. We will all die. Healing for me is about living the life I was given more fully, more honestly, more lovingly, and more joyously.

Just Keep Paddling

I can harness the wind, but I cannot change its force or direction. I can accept my fate, while I co-create my destiny. Is the diagnosis of cancer my fate combined with my destiny? It feels like I am paddling into the wind.
