A struggling friend reminded me of a situation I was in the autumn after my dear grandma died. Re-reading that gave me a surprise: I’d forgotten how down I was then. I remember crying during the meeting with my bosses, but I don’t remember taking sick days and waking up angry every day. But yes, […]
Tag: budding yogini
Ever since I discovered the ho’oponopono practice of forgiveness and healing about 3 years ago, I have used it, pursued it, and experienced healings big and small. I have taught it to a few friends. To my delight, they have embraced it and discovered for themselves the instant peace that comes with cleaning (as using […]
So while I’ve been gone…
Interests keep changing. Or rather, focus does. I obviously still enjoy taking photographs, because I kept my camera busy during my vacation. But even photography requires inspiration—and weather that won’t ruin a camera. And so I let Wordless Wednesdays slide. I stopped forcing myself and let my blog rest, too. The nice thing about long […]
An interview with Dr Amit Goswami
Dr Amit Goswami, a quantum physicist, discusses spiritual searching, consciousness, ego, free will… The whole shebang.
It’s New Year’s Eve 2012. I’m in jeans and a wool sweater, not in my high heels and sparkly top. My plans for a productive day and a party for one have been sidetracked. I feel lazy and low-key. And thoughtful. My neighbors are not being low-key; they’ve been shooting fireworks sporadically all evening. I […]
On miracles and mothers
A miracle is an authentic switch from fear to love. When we speak from the ego, we will call up the ego in others. When we speak from Holy Spirit, we will call up their love. In 1967, my whole family fell apart. Mommy, Daddy, baby sister and I all ended up at separate addresses. […]
Getting my beliefs challenged II
I am going down yet another rabbit hole. It diverges from the one I was falling down about a year and a half ago. At least somewhat. All roads lead to Rome, but not all are main highways and will get you to your final destination; they do move you forward, though. My new rabbit […]
I love you. Thank you.
Some time last month, I was listening to a new spiritual podcast, and the speaker said that we can all heal ourselves and each other by stating, “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” Apparently, this series of four short statements healed all the patients of a psychiatric facility, simply by being […]
Getting my beliefs challenged
I own the extended DVD set of “What the #$*! Do We (K)now!?”, also known as “Down the Rabbit Hole”. I can’t remember now how my browsing the internet today started, but I ended up learning a lot about the science in “What the Bleep”: It’s terribly inaccurate. There are other inaccuracies or downright errors, […]
I’m consolidating a bit. My other blog, Budding Yogini, will cease to exist soon, but all posts are transferred here and tagged “spirit” and “budding yogini”. I no longer feel the need to keep my spiritual musings separate from other musings. I’m still a budding yogini, though.
Give me a good digestion, Lord,and also something to digest.Give me a healthy body, Lord,with sense to keep it at its best. Give me a healthy mind, good Lord,to keep the good and pure in sight,which seeing sin, is not appalled,but finds a way to set it right. Give me a mind that is not […]
This is good
So there I was, waiting for the bus home, feeling sluggish because of an exhaustive round at my acupuncturist’s. I leaned against the side of the bus shed, reading the latest issue of “Science of Mind Magazine”, idly paging through the daily affirmations. I started reading the accompanying text for today’s: Sometimes it’s easy to […]
Gratitude is attitude
Gratitude is about making a list over everything you have to be thankful for: Health, family, job, home, food, a lovely day, a gift from a friend, a computer to write a blog on, electricity to run the computer. That’s what some who teach about gratitude say. Me, I disagree. Oh, making a list every […]
Two years ago, I wrote a post about my exploration of Mahatma Gandhi’s quote, “If you don’t find God in the next person you meet, it is a waste of time looking for him further.” I haven’t been exploring that concept lately, but today decided to try again. As before, I added to my affirmative […]
I enjoy Oprah’s Soul Series radio podcasts and have just listened to her interview with actor Rainn Wilson. At one point during the interview, Rainn gave a good list of “life’s big questions”, and I feel like trying to answer them: What does your soul look like? I love Oprah’s answer in the interview: “My […]
Religionsdebatt: Trenger språk
Vel, jeg rotet meg inn på en religionsdebatt på news. Jeg hadde mye på hjertet, men valgte i stedet å poste noe av det her, i stedet for der. Utgangspunktet er altså Richard Dawkins. Tilhengerne hans sier bl.a. at Dawkins forholder seg til rasjonelle vitenskapelige metoder. Jeg påstår at Dawkins ikke forholder seg til vitenskapelige […]
Books you both read and write in
It’s been a long time since I last had a book I wrote in. Oprah and my hairdresser talking about notes and Post-its littering their Eckhart Tolle books made me think about the last time I had a book that so delighted me or inspired me that I underlined whole passages. I do have several […]
How to uncover your wholeness
Lately, all my reading and listening to the webcasts from Oprah’s shows on “A New Earth” with Eckhart Tolle, keeps pointing out that we are essentially whole. The body is essentially healthy; disease is layered on top of the health. Our souls are also well, seeming not to be only because of a clutter of […]
Do you need fear?
There’s a movie called “Esoteric Agenda” making the rounds. I actually watched the full 126 minutes this movie lasts, and it is, in my opinion, a shining example of how erroneously we can connect the dots and see patterns where there are none, inventing monsters under the bed with no other evidence than an absence […]
Don’t assume you know the truth
As everyone else says who has past this on, watch till the end, and don’t assume you know what’s coming.
