Kids smoking Juul’s

Instead of dropping them

Tarnished gems

Mind & spirit dull

Lulled to sleep

They forgot how to be woke

Creativity gone

(Puff) up in smoke

How do we wake them?

Where they stop sipping syrup…



This morning I was reading from “A Return to Love” and found these beautiful passages:

“During the time of the darkest of night,” says the Talmud, “act as if the morning has already come.”

God provides the answer to every problem the moment it occurs.

If we accept God’s will as already accomplished we experience the healing of all wounds immediately.

The universe is created to support us in every way.

God is constantly expressing his infinite care for us. The only problem is we don’t agree with him. We don’t love ourselves as he loves us and so we block our experience of the miracles to which we’re entitled.

Make Heaven Here Now

No need to wait to live a good life and in Heaven now.

Choose to create it here now as the Lord’s prayer suggests “…on earth as it is in Heaven.”

On Being Right

We all want to receive confirmation and acknowledgment for having the right answer. Being the go to guy or gal for when things get tough and someone else needs clarity.

We want to win the argument, get our point across, and convince the other side to see it our way.

But there is a fine line between needing to be right and having the right answer. The former is all about ego, pride, and dominating.

You can (and perhaps have) gotten your way by needing to be right at any cost. Unfortunately your need is driven by ego. Which will eventually push those you forcefully got on your side farther away.

On the flip side being right by offering solutions, seeking guidance/counsel, putting yourself in others shoes and moving closer to the problem changes everything. Resulting in better answers and outcomes.

Not needing the credit or being seen as a hero or the man takes humility and confidence. Both of which will help you build momentum without ever being right.

Just 10 Minutes

Time is relative to what you are doing with it.

10 minutes with a group of friends laughing till it hurts and it flys by.

10 minutes with your hand over an open flame and it lasts an eternity.

Pleasure and/or pain make all the difference in how fast/slow you perceive time to go.
