Finding Your Soul’s Purpose

Our soul’s purpose often gets hidden under the teachings, experiences and social mores of family, community and society. These are not bad in and of themselves, but we take them on as our personal truths when in fact they are collective identifiers, not expressions of our True Nature, which is as distinct and individual to each of us as our fingerprints.

The Positive Point of View

I recently tweeted a great quote from Victor Hugo, who was talking about the creative process in his writing,
“When you get an idea into your head you find it everywhere.”
Not only does this truly apply to the creative process, it is a stellar example of what is meant by the “law of attraction.” When we exude positive energy, we attract positive energy back to us.

“Let It Be”

For the last several months and well before the celebration of the Beatles 50th Anniversary (just so you know I wasn’t getting a subliminal message from all the media hoopla around that event), I consistently have heard the words “let it be” during my daily meditation.

Words on Love

Recently, I have been reflecting upon our 4th Chakra – the heart chakra – located at the center of the chest and the connection or segue point between our upper 3 and lower 3 chakras. Anodea Judith’s book, Wheels of Light, has been one of my study sources. I particularly like some things she says about Love, one of the main aspects of the 4th Chakra, along with unity and healing.

The Drawbacks of Multitasking

We live in a day and age when the ability to multitask is applauded – the more we can do at any given time, the more efficient and productive we are, right?

Wrong! According to William Deresiewicz’s stunning piece of writing, Solitude and Leadership, which he gave as a lecture at West Point in October of 2009.
