We live in a polar world right now, some call it duality. Things are seen as black and white, right or wrong, good or bad, and on and on.

Love from the heart wants what is best for your higher good but real life interactions often … Continue reading I Hear I am Loved. I Just Don’t Feel It.
Retaining Integrity in a Political World
The world is spinning seemingly out of control, yet it remains on its axis. It seems to move faster and faster each day and yet it still takes 24 hours to do so.

What Happened to Truth?
Has truth been cancelled by opinions? I am filled with opinions as are most everyone I know. Some are more comfortable sharing theirs than others. From time to time I write. I share my opinions with anyone who chooses to read my blogs, knowing that not everyone will agree with them. I expect that the readers … Continue reading What Happened to Truth?
