Love And Forgiveness

We know we’re supposed to love and forgive everyone.  That is a challenge in itself.  It does not come easy, it takes an effort to really love and forgive those who’ve betrayed our trust in some way.  In fact, it may take a long time to really get to that moment when you can honestly feel it.  I believe it’s something we really want and are trying.

What about loving and forgiving ourselves?  I know for me, that’s even harder.  After all, we are our own worst critics.  Once we become aware, we consciously take responsibility for what we’ve done, yet, forgiving ourselves can seem almost impossible.  Especially when we seem to repeat something we know we shouldn’t do.  So how do we love and forgive ourselves?

Just like affirmations, I believe we need to repeat the words everyday, “I love and forgive myself unconditionally.”  I also believe that is where we need to start in order to truly forgive others.  Sometimes the lesson we need to learn is simply that, to love and forgive.  That also may be the reason we repeat those things we know aren’t in our best interest.

It also brings the point of staying present.  We only need to forgive what’s already done, it’s in the past.


Good Stuff

Having celebrated my 60th birthday earlier this year, I’ve been around long enough to observe many trends.  I thought I might share with you some of the amazing things I (and possibly you) have seen come to be.

The Internet

I remember a time before the internet.  In fact, when I entered the Air Force in 1976, our computer was a Univac 1050-II.  It was so large, it was housed in its own room.  Our “keyboard” was a telex type machine.  You typed a header on a form and hit send, the computer would then fill out the rest of the form.  Now there are tablets, pc’s and even a smartphone can do computing.

Cell Phones

Again, there was a time when there were no cell phones, only land lines.  The first cell phones were like walky-talkies.  Then came the flip phones, and eventually the smart phones.

Organic And Natural Foods

While organic foods have been around, they were generally not available in your mainstream grocery store.  Now due to an increased awareness of health, virtually every major grocery has them.

Environmental Awareness

Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s, environmental awareness had only just begun.  It has taken a while, but we are living in an extremely better environment than then.  Just to be clear, we are facing climate change, but if you research the real science, it’s not all due to what we’ve done.  Yes we can and should continue to reduce the emissions we put into the air, but we are on the right track.

Conscious Awareness

It may seem as though conscious awareness is somewhat new, but it isn’t.  What is new is the ability to foster this awareness on such a level.  For nearly 2000 years, dogma has ruled the lives of most of the population.  Studies now show that nearly 70% of the population looks to spirituality instead of religion.  And many of those who do look to organized religion, look with a broader scope of acceptance for all faiths.


I am grateful and thankful for all of these miraculous things I’ve been able to witness.  I am also excited beyond comprehension for the advancements coming in the future.








Can You Feel It?

I watched a great movie today by Jay Weidner on Gaia.  It’s called “Infinity”.  It features many people who’ve had near death experiences.  While their accounts are similar on many levels, there are some different takes which helps to understand the whole process.

One of the greatest things I took from it was that we are so much bigger than these bodies on this planet.  We are part of the infinity with no beginning and no end.  We choose to come here to experience and learn.

Having read much of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work, he refers to this same thing in his meditations.

We all have the infinite knowledge within us to do or be anything, all we have to do is to allow it into our reality.  I believe we have a dual sensory system.  Physical and spiritual.  Naturally, our physical is sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.  Our spiritual is deeper, more fulfilling and more natural.  It is only because of our early learning we begin to distrust what we don’t physically sense.

So how do we get back to our spiritual senses?  As always, the first step is awareness.  Knowing it exists.  Second, we have to shut off the programming.  We do it every night when we sleep, we just need to intentionally set our minds to be open.  Many do it with meditation, especially Kundalini.  Finally, relax.  We need to accept we are enough just as we are and a little bit goes a long way.

There is so much more to get out of this life than what traditional science and religion tells us.  We all have so much more to offer to each other than what we may believe.

Can you feel it?  That calling?  That yearning?  Now you know.
