I’m rolling with the punches for now!

The title might make one feel this is more of a defeatist post than it really is, but full disclosure I had a few weeks I did feel defeated. Along with writing this blog, I have a full-time job that turned into working every day for the last month twelve hour days. Needless to say,... Continue Reading →

Dharma Day Lessons

Yesterday was Dharma Day celebrating the first sermon given by The Buddha in which he revealed the "ultimate truth" and the path to enlightenment. This day is celebrated on the full moon in July and is used to give offerings, study the Dharma, and deepen practitioners┬áspirituality. I worked a double shift and had hoped to...

The BEST thing you can ever do…

Centering Thought: The best thing you can ever do is to BELIEVE in Yourself. Today I truly trust and BELIEVE in myself. Lately, I have felt others have been trying to turn me into someone I don't feel I am. I've felt I had been pretty up front with my likes and idiosyncrasies, as well... Continue Reading →

I am Overwhelmed but…

Centering Thought: I am overwhelmed. I allow my emotions to run wild too much. Today I care for my insides better. I am someone ruled by my emotions. It doesn't help my moon is in Aquarius, which puts me as an outsider a lot. I don't want to get into astrology but I see my... Continue Reading →

In life, it seems most are waiting to speak, and for sure waiting to defend themselves. It never really feels like each party is really being heard and the conversation... Continue Reading →

I’m NOT your Doormat

An interesting thing happened on my way to the Dharma. I know the power people put on the meaning of words( I am a writer of course). I understand defining things is how people make decisions and asset risk and other things during the course of their lives. But I also know the dangers of... Continue Reading →

Is Respect nothing more than Ego?

I try not to make it so obvious when I write about situations that happen with my friends, but I'm pretty sure this friend will know immediately this blog is about him. However, I'm not really writing about what happened between us as much as I'm trying to understand this need for respect. As I... Continue Reading →

That’s Your Interruption

I've always known words have power. If it wasn't true, people wouldn't care what names there were called and arguments wouldn't arise from things said out of anger. But recently I have seen a few words casually thrown around by people that I don't feel have a good grasp on their meaning, giving them a... Continue Reading →
