On a wing (or two) and a prayer

As the Southwest 737 climbed through the dull clouds and ragged hills of San Diego the Captain explained Air Traffic Control had advised him that the skies throughout our flight path in California today were “out of sorts,” much like the reluctant flyer I still think I am. Our ascent would prove bumpier than usual; […]

What you teach is teaching you

“Long time no see with,” my inner professor said, as I slunk into his office and slid into my seat facing his desk. I really shouldn’t have taught him that line. But he was right, as always. It had been a long time; months in fact. It’s not that I hadn’t wanted to visit; just […]

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 […]

The real upside of hip fractures

(I wrote this essay about learning to practice A Course in Miracles, excerpted from my first book, Extraordinary Ordinary Forgiveness, eight years ago. It helps remind me that our journey home is a process both of deepening understanding and allowing our unconscious resistance to Love, our belief in the very self we think protects us, […]

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 […]
