Perfect For You

If you watch commercial television, listen to the radio, read newspapers or magazines (either online or hard copy) or, simply have conversations with your colleagues or friends, you are probably being bombarded with information about the best plan or program for almost anything. How to lose weight, improve your health, have more energy, be more confident ... you name it, there's someone out there telling you the only way to achieve whatever it is you want. There's nothing "wrong" with that and it's great to have choices. The problem I see is that too many of us want someone else to tell us what to do and how to do it.

All In The Details

Do you ever daydream or spend some time imagining and putting things on your "Desire List"?? I certainly hope so! I'm not sure what they tell students in schools these days, but I remember having teachers lecture us about daydreaming. It was not acceptable.

It wasn't too bad, storm-wise, at first. I'm from this area so snow and cold was inconvenient, but to be expected. That's what happens from December through February. March is when we New Englanders start to get hopeful that the signs of spring are going to appear. Mother Nature has a twisted sense of humor and we have been slammed with

Now Is What's Real

Photo by Samuel Silitonga I have been curious about, flirting with, or actually participating in meditation for many years. I remember the Beatles announcing that they had learned of TM (Transcendental Meditation) and were practicing it, especially after traveling to India in 1968 to further their study. I wasn't sure what it was all about, but I knew it was getting my attention. In fact, I sometimes thought of running off to India myself (that was big in the '60's), however I was a limited thinker back then and it didn't happen. For many years, I believed that "struggle" was somehow noble, even though it exhausted me. I also went out of my way to find the "difficult" way because I thought i
