On Sunday, October 24th, the first Global Oneness Day will be celebrated. I am excited about this because I am a firm believer that once we realize that we are all connected, the energy of separation can begin to be dismantled. From my point of view, it is imperative for us to remember that what we do and think affects the whole. This one day feels like a great opportunity to begin to place our attention on what we want to create.
Since I was a child, I have loved amusement parks and the thrill of roller coasters. I always feel exhilarated when I get on a ride and the “thrill experience” begins.
Success requires risk. It demands that we step out of our comfort zones and move into unknown territory. We all know that, but doing it is another thing. There are lots of people walking around talking about their dreams, but many are completely immobilized. The thought of taking action to manifest the dream is so frightening that they do nothing.
Recently, Oprah did this wonderful show on women, food and God. I love that she makes us aware of topics that cause us to pause and reassess how we live. As I contemplated this show, it led me to think about the fact that all addictions have a root cause. That cause is not wanting to “feel” something, or trying to find our worth, our power and our life outside of ourselves.
I was talking to someone recently who did not want an “ex” to be involved in an event where their child was participating.
When asked what I thought of this, I responded that I thought it was an old way of thinking.
There is something wonderful about a person who expresses joy. In fact, when we are in the presence of a joyous being, we feel uplifted and connected. Their energy is contagious and inspires people around them to discover their own bliss.
I have been sharing this with many people, but I have not yet shared it with you, though some of you may already know: I am pregnant. I am 16 weeks pregnant, and I am obviously thrilled. The first few months were a combination of excitement, joy and also worry if it would really be real this time!
Recently there have been a number of discussions — on Facebook and elsewhere — about couples fighting in public. Most of us don’t get into the kind of marital slugging matches routinely featured on Bravo’s “Real Housewives” where spouses are likely to rip off their wigs and use them as blunt instruments to beat spouses around the head and shoulders. However, most of us have at least been within earshot of a heated relationship spat.
I am a product of the ’60s. This was a time filled with changes and questions about the ways in which we, as a culture, operated. It was a time when people were demanding to be seen as equals and honored as part of the human family. People began standing up for what they thought was right.
I am so excited to share with you my latest discovery … DELICIOUS LOVE. The kind of love that makes you shout with glee. You know, that love that makes your heart pump and every moment is filled with great expectancy? The love that makes you want to dress up and look your best, keeps a smile on your face and invites you to write incredible poetry. Think about a moment when everything in you felt radiant and excited to be alive … a moment when you were so sure that you were desirable and desired. Recall that moment and let it fill your body. Notice how you tingle and joy forms in your mind.
