Ever wondered why people chose to hurt one another?
I have pondered that question over the years. As a child I was profoundly distressed by violence and what I perceived as cruelty. I often get e mails from people asking me the same thing.
I have come to the conclusion that we can only hurt one another when we are disconnected from our spirit. Our mind, our filter system is often very fear based and fear motivates actions not based in love. From our mind we can rationalize unspeakable acts. I am pretty sure whoever planted the bombs in Boston thought it was a ‘good’ idea.
Our spirit can only chose love. God, Allah, Great Spirit, whatever we choose to call that energy of creation knows only love.
If I start to judge others I have disconnected from my spirit
As I watched the images this week of Boston or in other weeks of school shootings or bombings or of war – how do I stay in a place of love? How do I love the bombers? How do I love the shooters?
Spiritual practices take practice. As Jesus said, “Turn the other cheek.” Do I want to add more love or fear to this world/ Has all the centuries of judgment, laws and trying to control others worked? I think not.
Maybe it is time we give love a chance. Maybe it is time we practice love rather than judgment and fear. I sure hope so.
Today I am practicing allowing love to erase my judgment and fear. Spiritual practices take practice. Care to join me in practicing love?

Embraced by love I’ve never thought of myself as a poet but lately poetry has been coming. Happy Solstice and Merry Christmas. Here is a poem: Embrace by Love. I hope you enjoy it.
The blast of cold
It is so cold, so very cold
Miles to go
I’m not sure where
My feet are cold
Only the love is real Here is a short video I made about unconditional love.
Calling the angels into your home
With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it
What is an angel? I get that question a lot. The best answer I have is they are pure, expansive unconditional love. They embrace us always. They surround us with their love and I've been told that unless we ask they won't interfere in our lives. I guess that is true except my life has been saved more than once by som

She graciously agreed, so I always take time to thank her and ask for her blessing in my endeavors.
