Anything that ruffles your feathers is just a reminder that you've got wings.

A million times a day, you can find something to irk you... turn on the TV, read a newspaper or listen in on your co-workers latest rant for a few minutes and you'll find yourself boiling over in no time. That's because there's always going to be something to complain about, just because someone doesn't see things the same way you do.

Do you really want your day to be all about THAT?

Oh, sure, you say "I can't help it" or "I've got to be informed about what's going on around me"... but, yes, you CAN help it... and, no, you don't need to be informed... if that information disrupts your inner peace.

Yes, I know it's your (spouse, kids, parents, siblings, insert your other choice here)... of course, drama just has this nasty knack of finding you.


It stops at YOU. You're the gatekeeper. You decide if it gets in or not... you let it get to you... or not.

When the wind blows against you, your feathers are going to get ruffled... but guess what... that means you've got feathers... attached to your WINGS.

And if you've got wings, you can FLY... you can RISE above it all.

So turn it OFF, tune it OUT and take it UP.

And, as always, keep the light on!

It's a hand out when you give TO somebody, but a hand up when you give FOR somebody.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday here in the U.S. It's a time that reminds us to stop and be grateful for what we have and marks the beginning of the Holiday Season. It's a time when we shift our focus to the giving to others, especially the less fortunate. While I think that's wonderful, and is far better than "nothing at all" I want to give this word of warning...

Don't give TO somebody. It might give someone a warm stomach, but it won't give them a warm heart. It won't solve their problems... and really, you're only doing it to absolve yourself; to feel better for a year of treating others like they are invisible or worse a plague on a otherwise pristine world.

Instead, as we head into this season, think about giving FOR somebody. Really focus on what THEY need. Yes, they need money. Yes they need a warm meal and a warm place to lay their head... but they also need you to SEE them. A smile, a "hello"; something to say "yes, you still matter."

They need help to help themselves. Some need medicines and social services, others need education and a chance. Compassion and respect are not "Entitlements" to be tossed aside during budget cuts. Doing that only costs US more.

So by all means, give those donations to charities, spend your day on at a food bank. It will matter.

Just don't let these acts of kindness disappear like a New Years resolution.

In January and February.... in July, when you're off to Disneyland... every day... help others. It will matter then just as much as now; maybe even more so.

But don't do it for YOU, because then it's just another way to separate you from others.

Today is Thanks GIVING... so be thankful, not just for what you HAVE, or what you'll GET next month, but for what you can GIVE... today, and every day.

Keep the light on!

The only thing to stop you from knowing it all is thinking you already do.

Now I don't want to tell you something you already know... but you don't really know it all... and if you think you do, then you never will.

Of course what you DO know is invaluable... it shapes your world and gets you through the day... and it took you this long to figure it out... so... so far, so good.

Just know that Life has so much more that it wants to show you... so many wondrous mysteries to unfold... and just knowing that you have yet to know it, opens up your eyes and your opportunities to get to know it.

"Not knowing" is good... providing you stay on the path to learning... and still want to see what's beyond that bend and over that mountain. Because when you've 'had enough' that's all you get.

The fastest way to block your view is to think that there's nothing left to see...

And the fastest way to fall behind, is to think you're ahead of everyone else.

'Everything' is all around you, so there can never be a destination... only paths around it... and to see 'everything' you've got to keep moving, and looking, and learning.

PS And if you want to see more from where you're standing, it'd be really nice if you turned the light on just a little brighter.

On a scale of One, you're a Ten!

Everything is relative, or so the theory says. It doesn’t really have to be. Something is only relative to something else when we compare them. But what if we don’t? What if we see everything as unique unto itself… beyond comparison? How about experiencing everything as it is, not how it’s supposed to be, or could be, or used to be… or any be… just as it is.

And how about YOU? Have you been busy comparing yourself to everything else around you? Or how you used to be? Or how you want to be?

Yeah, well don’t feel guilty about it, since guilt is all relative anyway ;-)

And aren’t we all just a part of the same thing? Aren’t we all One? Then there really is no comparison, since there’s nothing to compare One to.

So just be the number one in the One… and together we’ll all be Tens.

Relatively speaking, that is.

Keep the light on!

Make sure even the smallest steps are part of the larger journey

Life isn’t just one big moment, a giant leap from birth to death. It’s a journey of many, many small steps… and they can wander from one place to the next, or they can be focused on getting to where you want to get to. The choice is yours.

It’s just that so often we see the small steps as just that… small… and then we think that they don’t really matter. It’s in there that leads us astray… because when we THINK they’re small, we ACT as if they’re small. That’s going to get us small results. Why? Because the value we get OUT of Life comes from the value we put IN to every living moment.

So when you take that next step, don’t worry if it seems small… take it. Make it yours. Make it count.

Because it does.

Keep the light on!
