  • Hello Neighbor

    Hello Neighbor

    Trauma is like a unwelcome neighbor with no name, parading through your home without so much as an introduction.

  • The Impact of Choices

    The Impact of Choices

    As I struggle to grasp onto anything comforting during the acceptance that someone close to me has a problem with addiction, I find myself writhing in physical pain over their choices. How could someone choose their addiction over the love of their family? How could they allow themselves to self destruct in such a way?…

  • Sparks | Instant Karma

    Sparks | Instant Karma

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the law of karma, more specifically instant karma and the delivery method of karma. Say for example I’m driving down the road and someone cuts me off. I decide to speed up and do exactly what this person did to me, to them; or retaliate in some other…

  • Forging Ladders

    Forging Ladders

    Life; this existence that we are so sure about. Do you feel like you know why you are here? How have you played your cards? Did you get to where you are today by utilizing the rungs of the ladder that others who came before you labored to create? Did you pour yourself into creating…

  • The importance of “presence”

    The importance of “presence”

    Do you ever feel as though you are hindered on your path to spiritual growth? Perhaps a little lost? Or maybe even misdirected? Picture this a moment: We as humans on the path to ultimate one-ness with God are somewhat like a carriage, a horse and a driver. If the driver is holding too tight…

  • Personal Standards

    Personal Standards

    When “life” reaches out and asks for your hand, you generously reach out and feel around for the connection. Upon making this connection, do you take a moment to question how it makes you feel? When “life” asks you for patience, you lovingly comply. Upon practicing patience, do you yearn to experience everything now? When…

  • Spiritual Transparency

    Spiritual Transparency

    Before one comes to the light, they are usually enveloped in complete darkness, just as in the womb. Everyone is being taught that one can simply, “choose a better thought,” or “don’t entertain the negative thoughts and life will be just peachy.” I have even been guilty of attempting to shine the light so brightly…
