Truth has rushed to meet you (in stealth mode; but still!)

I sat in my car outside the university fitness center I belong to after completing another lonely ride to nowhere on a stationary bike. Mindlessly perusing magazines like People and US reporting on matters of dire importance such as reader polls revealing which celebrity wore which designer outfit best. Even as my iphone continued to […]

See you in September

“Just put on the God-damn glasses,” I said. “I mean, who do you think you are, anyway? Icarus? A two-year old? The President of the United States?” My inner professor tossed back his head and laughed. “We’ve talked about this,” he said. But I was just trying to protect him, for God’s sake, and let’s […]

Miracles are seen in light (and we’re not talking LED)

I sat at my desk on yet another bright Monday morning in this winter of my deep discontent, that haunting phrase from A Course in Miracles workbook lesson 91: “What you think you are is a belief to be undone,” (paragraph 6, line 7) once more echoing throughout the empty corridors of my head. A […]

I will not hurt myself again today

“I will not hurt myself again today,” I muttered, hopping back from the path of another SUV zipping by way too fast (even under fair-weather conditions) for a residential area, lobbing another ill-formed missile of snow and ice in my direction. I dropped the shovel, stripped off my ski gloves, and blew on my fingers, […]

What is sin?

(Happy New Year! Here’s another excerpt from my most recent collection of essays, Forgiveness: The Key to Happiness, about learning to live a forgiving and forgiven life and truly smile.) What is sin? I lifted my head from the cradle of my folded arms resting on his desk, flexed my fingers stinging with pins and […]

I love to laugh

(There’s never a better time than right now to draw a deep breath, lighten up with our inner Teacher, and learn to gently, compassionately smile at it all! 🙂 Here’s an excerpt from my second A Course in Miracles essay collection: Forgiveness Offers Everything I Want. Hope it makes you smile!)   “I think definitely […]

Electing to heal my mind about the world

I pulled into the local district police station, climbed out of my car, and walked the long way around the parking lot to the ballot drop-off box to cast my vote. Attempting to avoid what appeared to be a local newscaster apparently interviewing other early voters about the presidential election and no doubt one candidate’s […]

The quiet center

“You’ve gone pretty minimalist, I see,” I said, taking in the glowing, spherical space in which I found myself, attempting to make light of it. Despite the fact that it took every ounce of my once-upon-a-dream legendary restraint to keep from flinging myself into his outstretched arms. After all, I’d almost given up on finding […]
