You DO matter

It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others.His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama It seems like many of us are going through quite a tough time. It's as if the universe if forcing us to clean out our closets that have been the keeper of trauma, pain, secrets, lies and general unhappiness for most of our lives. While in ... Read the Post

No matter what has happened to you in your life, no matter how traumatic it may have been, know this: YOU DO MATTER. Your thoughts matter, your opinion matters, your dreams and wishes matter, your LIFE matters. Being victims of trauma can make us feel we are not worthy but this couldn't be farther from the truth. If you are feeling worthless, lost and completely alone, please know that this is not the reality of who you are. You do matter not only to many people in your immediate circle of human connections but also to the divine.

Mastering Your Thoughts in a world of Illusion

Why are we here?  What is is all for?  What is my purpose?  If you find yourself asking these questions, you are not alone. I have often asked myself this very question causing me to have suffered through extreme bouts of anxiety and depression focusing on it.  Sometimes the very thought can bring me to a state of panic. Where do we go when we die?  Is there an afterlife?  Purgatory? Hell? ... Read the Post

Our thoughts create this reality that we live it, and we play it out, similar to what actors do on a stage.  We continue to play out these dramas in order for our souls to learn and grow, to remember that love is the only thing that is real.  The idea that we are not separate (ego) but rather part of this amazing, loving kindness that is present in all of creation."
