Serenity and Mindfulness Connect.


Father Mother God

Father Mother God

Father Mother God? We never spoke of God this way growing up. Actually we never spoke much of God at all.  The word God was most often followed by dammit . . . 

My childlike (though probing and astute) inquiries about the meaning of all the God talk I heard from other kids and society at large were usually answered with a shrug.

Meditation and Sobriety

Meditation and Sobriety

This week we bring you a wonderful article by Holly Glenn Whitaker from her blog, “Hip Sobriety.” 

Holly writes: “The foundation to my success in sobriety and living a purpose-full, happy, healthy life is this: Meditation. That’s it. It’s the core, the beginning, the little seedling from which all things grew. Take it away and the rest crumbles.”

Cooperation, Collaboration, Not Competition

Cooperation, Collaboration, Not Competition

I can tell I’m making progress. (Progress not perfection is the name of the game.) I don’t compare myself so harshly to others anymore. At least I don’t automatically default to a “less than” mode from a “less than” mode. The old me quickly folded in the face of competition, even when no one was competing with me. I was quick to defer, shrink back, not put up a fight – even when no one was fighting with me.

Live for Today

Live for Today

Cause and effect is what Ernest Holmes talks about as the basis of New Thought philosophy – what I think, feel, and do today (cause) will link me to what I experience in the moments and years to come. (effect) Less focus on what I will experience in the mystery of the afterlife… more focus on the heaven and hell that I will create right here on earth, based on what I produce for myself by my thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Happy Me, Happy You

Happy Me, Happy You

This week we bring you a wonderful article from Regina Cates, author of Lead with Your Heart: Creating a Life of Love, Compassion and Purpose.

Regina writes, “We’ve all heard that happiness comes from within. Someone else can’t make us happy; we have to create our own happiness. We aren’t responsible for another person’s behavior, only for how we behave in response.”
