Serving Through Love, Loving Through Service

September 26, 2010

During a break in a healing workshop yesterday, I gave a shoulder rub and face massage to a friend of mine. As I was working on her, I imagined I was applying healing energy and loving intention to her spirit during the darkest moments of her life. She had lost her husband under tragic circumstances at the hands of a corrupt political regime in her homeland, then later moved to America where she worked tirelessly to learn English and support her child, living in a state of perpetual anxiety and fear for the first few years. I cannot even begin to comprehend the magnitude of the hardships she endured. But what I could do was offer a bit of loving kindness for a few minutes.

We can all do this. In fact, we do this all the time. When we (more…)

The Key of the Morning, the Bolt of the Evening

Prayer is a natural outgrowth of faith, an inevitable testament to your trust in divine mercy and kindness.

Faith is the fountain of prayer, and prayer should be nothing else but faith exercised.
Thomas Merton

Your words are far less important than the purity and intensity of your yearning. What you are thinking pales in significance to what you are feeling.

If you pray to God as though your heart and mind will burst with longing, He will respond.
Paramahansa Yogananda

The Celestial Music Of Your Soul

We Would Fall Down and Worship Each Other

August 16, 2009

little-boy-and-girl-happy-smilingGod’s infinite love for us is the celestial music of our soul. Every moment presents a fresh opportunity to express it, to give voice to it, to let it burst forth in celebratory song. As soon as you accept that you are bathed in God’s loving consciousness in every moment, you open your heart to knowing true peace.

If you are beautiful and loved, then so is every other person you meet. If your purpose on this earth is to learn and practice unconditional love, then all your relationships become hallowed ground.

If you don’t find God in the next person you meet, it is a waste of time looking for him further.
Mahatma Gandhi

Imagine a child, alone and frightened, wishing it were home, knowing that all will be well, that it (more…)

Neale Donald Walsch on the Myth of Betterness

Neale Donald Walsch

I love this essay by Neale Donald Walsch. It eloquently expresses the “ego vs. spirit” and “cooperation vs. competition” conflicts. Walsch, author of the groundbreaking Conversations with God books, also contributed a story to my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything. Read an excerpt here.
