That Awkward Moment Between Birth and Death

This ‘Being Human’ is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. Be grateful for whatever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.


This year I welcome a sweeping inventory of my emotions. I connect with my experiences, releasing any unwanted baggage weighing down present opportunity, like sandbags that must be snipped from a hot air balloon so I can rise to my next destination.

I allow the magic of transformation and release to serendipitously guide me to my highest and greatest good.

Be Still and Know that I am God

Your Seriousness is about Sandcastles


“Your seriousness is about sandcastles. And you yourself will leave them one day, trampling them down, and you will not look back. The people who take it seriously miss the beauty of playfulness.” ~ Osho

We live on a blue planet
 that circles around a ball of fire
 next to a moon that moves the sea,
and you don’t believe in miracles?

The Full Flavor of a Meaningful Life

“I think this is when most people give up on their stories. They come out of college wanting to change the world, wanting to get married, wanting to have kids and change the way people buy office supplies. But they get into the middle and discover it was harder than they thought. They can’t see the distant shore anymore and they wonder if their paddling is moving them forward. None of the trees behind them are getting any smaller and none of the trees ahead are getting bigger … and they go looking for an easier story.”

“Once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.“

–Donald Miller, “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years”
