A Mother's Day Gift

Here it comes again – Mother's Day. So you're ready to head for the store to buy a card or a gift. Why not give the gift that's free. Give your mother your time and let her know you love her.   This may not be an easy task for everyone. Not all of us came from loving backgrounds. If this was the case for you, it was probably also the case for your mother as a child.   The thing to remember is that we all have done the best we could have done with whatever has come our way. Your mother has do

Ego versus Spirit

You are all spiritual beings having a human experience. Only spirit is real. It will never lead you astray. On the other hand, being human means to discern when your ego is getting in the way. In order to do so, you must practice awareness.   The ego is a trap of defensiveness that leads you to do some of the following things: It convinces you that you're right and someone else is wrong. It can lead to comparisons and judgment. It can lead to conflict and discord. What would you prefer? Would

Detach With Love

Life is a matter of attaching and learning to let go. To attach yourself to anything or anyone will keep yourself as a prisoner. Do not allow yourself to be a victim. Let go of the attachment and detach with love.   What are some examples of persons or things you can attach yourself to? You can attach yourself to abusive relationships or to relationships with addicts. You can attach yourself to various addictions: drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, workaholism, compulsive buying, compulsive religi

Easter Messages

Easter is upon us again. It's a time for Christians to remember the important messages that this occasion brings to us. It is also a lesson for us all.   The primary message is that God loves us, the spirit is eternal, and that all is forgiven. We are all worthy of heaven. Whether or not you believe in an afterlife is not important. Heaven is here for you now.   Jesus' final commandment to his disciples was this – to love one another. This is the message he preached throughout his ministry.

Join The Human Race

Do you feel alone and isolated? Do you feel as if you are the only person in the world? If you do, the answer is to join the human race.         You are each unique; but, underneath it all, you are the same. You are part of the whole of all creation. Yet to feel that way, you need to join hands and embrace your common humanity.         It is said that no man is an island. You do not need to do it alone. When you join with your brothers and sisters, you will feel a part of something

Do You Have a Sexual Addiction?

One of the latest and fastest growing addictions is an addiction to sex. It is an addiction that creates a feeling of powerlessness over one's sexual behaviors and that creates unmanageability in one's life. It can create a feeling of guilt or shame. It can ruin relationships.         It is a very real addiction that releases powerful chemicals in the brain during the pursuit of sex or while having it. It is not unusual for sex addicts to have problems with other addictions, though that

My Publishing Adventure

I had never dreamed of writing a book, let alone writing a series of books. Consequently I had never dreamed of becoming a published writer. That all changed when I sat down at my computer and began to write a story based upon characters I'd developed in order to entertain a former colleague of mine. When I finished writing the book, I still had more ideas. One good book called out for another. By that point I had really gotten the writing bug and I began to craft a series of books based upon my

Thank God for Humor!

Part One:         Where would we be if we couldn't laugh in this world that is frequently too serious for its own good? One of the greatest gifts I've come to discover is how to laugh at and with myself. I've spent most of my life taking myself and things way too seriously. It's wonderful to have a sensitive heart, but it's so important to shield it from unnecessary pain. That's where a good dose of humor serves the spirit and leads us all to let go through wonderfully releasing belly laug

Take Responsibility for Your Life

How many of you have just been an observer of life instead of a participant? Life is meant to be lived. If you sit on the sidelines, you will miss out on whatever opportunities may come your way.         Maybe you don't know where you would like life to take you. At least you have that awareness. The question is, what can you do now? Try to imagine the life you would like to have. Think of whatever dreams you may have had along the way. That's a good starting point. Where do you go now?

Celebrate Diversity!

Have you ever felt as if you were the only person like yourself in the whole world? Guess what? You are. Each of you is a unique expression of the human experience. Your task is to embrace all that you are and to celebrate yourself.         Perhaps you're in a minority group. You might be African-American, Asian, Latino, or gay. Perhaps you just feel as if you were a nerd. Some of the most famous people in history felt that way. They didn't let that stop them from becoming all that they c

The Power of Affirmation

Are you feeling lacking in some way? Do you wish to lead a life filled with meaning, a life that is filled with abundance? The key to achieving this is to use the power of affirmations to uncover just such a life.         If you are like the person that I used to be, you are too critical of yourself and others. This only serves to keep you locked in a prison whereby you cannot move forward in a positive direction. It will only keep you from developing a healthy relationship with yourself a

Self Acceptance for Gay People

Times are changing and it is easier than ever to find acceptance as a gay person in this country. That is certainly NOT the case everywhere. It's just that we've made many strides since the early days of gay liberation. It's time to celebrate and stop complaining. The task before you is to come to a place of self-acceptance.         Unfortunately for many, it is still an uphill climb. The road to self-acceptance requires a lot of personal effort. This all begins with self-affirmations. Say

So, You Want to Write a Book

Each of you has a book in yourself. After all, you all have your life stories. That is a starting point; at least it was for me. I wrote my memoirs about recovery from multiple addictions and mental illness. It helped me to heal and to learn how to put my thoughts down on paper. You can do that too.       Each of you is creative energy. You may not realize it. Just let yourself sit with that thought for awhile. Then try putting a pen to paper when the inspiration comes. You will be amazed at

Discover Your Personal Foibles While You Laugh Yourself Away

Surely you've heard it said that laughter is the best medicine. Yet, sometimes, taking a look at yourself isn't so funny. You may discover some characteristics that seem less than laughable. That doesn't have to be the case.   I am an author of a series of books designed to help their readers not take life so seriously. I have done this by creating memorably and delightfully dysfunctional characters to whom we can all relate. Just as is the case with all of us, we each have our light an

The Law of Attraction Manifests Abundance

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION MANIFESTS ABUNDANCE         Esther Hicks is a proponent of something called the Law of Attraction. It is the art of allowing well-being to flow, thereby overcoming resistance and attracting abundance. I have seen this manifesting in my life over the past several years while I have been prolifically writing my series of hilarious books. Two of them are published. Now I am beginning to experience abundance as channels of promotion for my books are flowing my way.

My Secret Shame

Part One:         I have shared a host of addictions in my past. These would include alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual addiction, codependent relationships, love addiction, tobacco addiction, compulsive shopping, workaholism, caffeine addiction, sugar addiction. The list could probably go on. That's enough for now!         Gratefully, some of these addictions such as alcohol and drug abuse are no longer issues within my life. From some others, I am seeking recovery. I may never re

What is in a name?

Names are tremendously important and they can actually drive our imaginations as we plot a course through our daily lives. It's a way we make a connection with people, places, and things. Different names mean different things to different people. Many wonderful images come to mind with the words hot fudge sundae, Hawaiian Islands, and freshly baked bread. Just as some unsettling images come to mind with the words dentist, taxes, and death.   The definition of "name" simply means a word or word

A Small Town Through the eyes of Sister Mary Olga Fortitidue

There are many small towns scattered all across the beautiful land of America. Some people prefer small towns to the big cities; both have their pros and cons. Many people may prefer wide-open spaces of beautiful hills and trees for the hustle and bustle of the big apple of New York City.   In my new book "The Misadventures of Sister MaryOlga Fortitude" would have to adamantly say that the warmth and fun of a small town create the only place she wants to call home.
