Why Awaken?

…the door is wide and open, don’t go back to sleep...Rumi (the untold story)

eternal joy

We’re strangers in our own home. We’re so near the nectar yet we either don’t look for it or don’t know where to alight. Let’s not be worried about the future nor sad about what could have been. Life is happening right now. If we get too lost in our thoughts we’ll pass by the door that’s ‘wide and open’…


Today I AM discovering and entering the doorway to eternity that’s inside me…

How To Pray…

May suffering ones be suffering free

And the fear struck fearless be.

May the grieving shed all grief

And the sick find health relief.

Zen Chant


May all suffering end. May only joy, love and happiness reign. May God’s will be done on our planet. May we all be at peace.


Today I AM prayerful and present. I listen for nudges from the Spirit and I act on them without hesitation. Life is good because I partner with the Divine.

How To Be Selfish…

If you’re not selfish enough to want to feel good, then you can’t connect with the energy that is your Source which does always feel good.Abraham

feel good

It must be ok for us to feel good about ourselves, our lives and our lot. Guilt, worry and stress are the chief enemies that keep us disconnected from the Divine. Are we vanquishing these foes?


Today I AM feeling good. It’s becoming a habit. Life itself is good!

Our Greatest Obligation?

There are so many things to enjoy ourselves here on earth and our life is so short that suffering is a loss of time. We have, for example, snow in winter to enjoy with; flowers in spring, chocolate made by the Perugia, French baguette, Mexican tacos, Chilean wine, seas and rivers, Brazilian soccer, The Thousand and One Nights, the Divine Comedy, Don Quixote, Pedro Paramo, boleros composed by Manzanero and poems written by Whitman, Mahler, Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Velasquez, Picasso and Tamayo, among many other wonders.Facundo Cabral

be happy

Our greatest obligation is to our self. If we are miserable so will the people around us be. If we’re joyous and serving children of God then we’ll spread joy and love, which also happen to be the greatest need out there. We’re not in competition with the other, we are the other, the other is us.


Today I AM joyous in the realization that Life is Good and the multitude of reasons why we have no choice but to be happy…

How To Experience Joy!

…happiness and joy comes to you when it moves through you. There is no other pathway – and that’s the miracle.Neale Donald Walsch

the miracle

The miracle of joy finds us when we manufacture joy and thus allow it to pass through us. It’s the simple but sure path to joy!


Today I AM joyous because I choose to experience it. Joy becomes me!

Why Follow The Heart?

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.Steve Jobs, 2005 Stanford Commencement

the heart

Our heart is more than a blood pumping muscle. It’s a spiritual organ that connects us to the very source of it all. When we operate from our heart, we operate from our soul, we can then be led by the Divine One…


Today I AM sensing and following my heart. I breathe in love through my heart and breathe it back out to the world! This is simple!
