We all have wounds.
Unless we heal our wounds,
we will never fully live
nor be truly free...

Loving others

Love is our greatest lesson. 
Though it sounds simple, it's not.
If we attach strings to love, we weave a web.
Entrapment causes fear and resentment. 
This love/hate relationship is called “co-dependency”.

Love needs nothing in return.
It is given freely, 
not just to people who make us feel special,
but to the whole world... 


If I love myself, I love you.
If I love you, I love myself.

- Rumi

Going beyond...

There is a voice in us.
Not a voice of reason or logic,
but a voice of truth.
It comes from within our soul.
We must listen carefully and follow it,
to fulfill our purpose in life.


My soul is elsewhere, I'm sure of that, 
and I intend to end up there."
- Rumi

Trusting what comes

In life, there is a duality whether we like it or not.
Happy days, sad days, frustrating days.
It’s important to remember on the difficult days 
not to be flattened by the circumstances.

We can make the choice to…
let our experiences harden or soften us.
feel victimized by the events or empowered.
curl up in defeat or stand strong in our faith. 
give into fear or expand our courage.
put up protective walls or live compassionately.

We can not shield ourselves from the human experience,
but we can move more fluidly through it by practicing
acceptance rather than struggle and resistance.
It’s helpful to remember that pain is the catalyst 
for softening our edges, expanding our hearts, 
and gaining wisdom…

This being human is a guest house. 
Every morning is a new arrival. 
A joy, a depression, a meanness...
comes as an unexpected visitor...
Welcome and entertain them all. 
Treat each guest honorably. 
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, 
meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. 
Be grateful for whoever comes, 
because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” 
- Rumi

Lean on faith

We grow through our times of trial.
No need to fear difficulty.
Every experience has something 
valuable to teach you.

Though we are meant to move forward
we often get stuck because we fear change.
What we may perceive as difficulty 
is likely to be our perfect wake-up call
and the catalyst for something better.
Instead of struggling in resistance,
welcome the chance to learn something new. 

Surrender any attempt to force a different outcome.
When you adjust to living in uncertainty,
it will begin to feel like home.
Allow yourself to be guided by grace.
Trust that life is always working in your best interest.

It's the season

It is your season for joy.
Life wants to take you places 
that are so beautiful
that you haven’t even dreamed
of them yet.

Be sure to leave behind all the pieces 
of the past that won’t compliment
the beauty of what lies ahead.

Don’t diminish your experience
by trying to plan the journey.
Your soul hungers for something
that is beyond the realm of your mind.

The moment you say “yes”,
your old life will vanish and your new one 
will delight you with it’s splendor…


As you start to walk out the way, the way appears.

Feel the tug of...

When your soul is beckoning you,
there is only one choice to make;
to follow it to the edge of the earth.
For it is only in living your life purpose,
that you will truly feel alive.

Remember to travel light, 
for there is nothing you need to take on the journey.
The path is already paved with golden opportunities. 

Step beyond all limitation!
Risk everything to venture into new horizons.
Feel the warm, solid earth beneath your feet 
as you reach to caress the stars that illuminate the way.
