Independence

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
-Steve Jobs

It seems that, by default, we live our lives as if our body is eternal. The moments when we truly face and understand our mortality are exceptional. It is in those moments that we find courage and are able to follow our heart and intuition. So often, we look to others for answers, assuming that …

The Voice of God, Part 2

Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.
-Malcolm Muggeridge

Inside North Fork Road at Glacier National Park. I ended yesterday’s post in the middle of a story of how God lead me through the voices of others and events in my life to run my own business and start this website. Where I left off, my wife and I both found ourselves unexpectedly unemployed …

The Voice of God, Part 1

People see God every day, they just don't recognize him.
-Pearl Bailey

Have you ever heard the voice of God? If you are familiar with stories from early religious text such as the Holy Bible, you probably remember stories in which God speaks directly to people.

You Have No Limits

Oh man! There is no planet, sun or star could hold you, if you but knew what you are.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nearly all religious and spiritual teachings throughout history assert one common idea: that we are eternal. Our soul exists beyond our physical lives which are a tiny blink in our entire existence. We are spiritual beings who have temporarily taken on human form. To truly understand this and live according to this reality, we begin …

Instant Gratification that is Permanent and Free

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
-Thornton Wilder

Gratitude – Clich√© or Real Power In the past, whenever the subject of gratitude would come up as a topic in a spiritual discussion, I would silently groan and think, “Not again.” But, it was always the case that by the end of the discussion, I was feeling blissful. At the time, I thought of …
