The Four Agreements

I didn’t have a good week at the office; actually it was filled with stress and betrayal. Stress can be remedied fairly quickly with a hot bath and a glass of wine. I can’t find the delete button for the feelings of betrayal though. I guess that comes in time. Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with the details. But I will say, this betrayal came from someone I wanted to trust. I have been lied to, taken advantage of, and thrown under the bus so someone else could protect themselves. Today I feel like I was run […]

Karmic Tornado

Karma: for every action there is a reaction. My question for today is do we have any control over the reaction, and should we? When one believes as I do that there is no divine plan for every action and event, and sometimes shit just happens because of poor choices people make, is there any recourse for the reactions left in their wake?

Slow Food Update 1

Today we had leftover spaghetti for lunch, and burgers and fries for dinner. I know burgers and fries doesn’t sound healthy, but it’s OK to have your favirites occasionally. The burgers were from organic beef, 96% lean, with no hormones or […]

The Calling

I’ve heard it said many times God is calling you What does that mean Will I hear a loud booming voice in my sleep Will I hear the whisper of a mother’s coaxing How will I know this voice from all the others in my head Or is it a voice that I created Sometimes I think I hear this voice Like a voice crying out in the night It plants thoughts in my mind before I sleep It tells me of a purpose in my life It calms me so I sleep But it leaves me before I wake […]
