a meditation on personal divinity

Recently, I mentioned having been to a doctor to be ‘hypnotized’ and being put through a series of meditation exercises. Two of the many struck me as worth adding to my regular routine. One was an exercise in ‘gratitude’. The other was an introduction to ‘personal divinity’. Even if you don’t meditate, per sé, you […]

hypnosis

A funny thing happened at the doctor’s recently that I wanted to share… I went in because of ‘hypertension’, which led to talk of ‘smoking cessation’, and then the doctor surprised me by suggesting ‘hypnosis’. ‘Wow! Sign me up!’ Of course, I talked to friends later and was surprised by how negative they were on […]

lucky day

Traditionally, we tend to think of Friday the 13th as an ‘unlucky’ day, but I’m feeling pretty lucky and it might have something to do with this message  from the Universe… “Now let me get this straight, Tror: You want things that you don’t have, people in your life you don’t yet know, and events that […]

past tense

So, I there I was driving to work and hoping to heck I’d make it through the shift without a hitch. ‘Make it go by quickly,’ I prayed, but then I realized that that shift wasn’t all I had to worry about. After all, we’d just gotten news that our department was being downsized and […]

catch up

Okay, who said it could be August already?! Seems I’ve been so caught up in the new house and my new grandchild that I’ve lost touch with time and all my plans to for this site. But, as Frances often advises, I’ve been trying to take a little time for me lately. Actually, there wasn’t […]

dreams

Shortly after I checked out “The Secret” that I realized something. I didn’t know how to dream. Oh, I spent many a night running from boogeymen, but by day I couldn’t dream I’d ever win a million, fall in love, or vacation in Dominica. All I knew was working and doing my day to day […]

original sin

  You know, it never ceases to amaze me that people can walk such different paths through life and yet come to the same conclusions. As a child, for example, I was taught that a perfect god created man only to curse him for a transgression that god could have disallowed. Aware of ‘original sin’, […]

self love

So, I was reading the ‘Course in Miracles’ and hearing about ‘our holiness’… ‘Yadda, yadda…’ I thought, ‘herd that…’ when a friend complimented another friend and the one on the receiving end put herself down. ‘Sweety,’ I interrupted, ‘that thing with the put-down… would you say that to someone else?’ ‘No,’ she said, looking a […]

thoughts on God, emotions, and responsibility

The other day I wrote about God, emotions, and responsibility, and since then I’ve been thinking… Years ago, I saw a lecture by Joseph Campbell in which he spoke about, among other things, the differences between Eastern and Western religion. One of the differences he mentioned was that in the West God is separate from […]
