Everyday Mysticism: Holding Faith

Every so often I need to bring myself back to ground, take a deep breath, and remind myself that the world is a decent place. It's so easy to get sucked into the negativity of the news, social media, and everyday stress. And the more I play in that world, the more it feels like the game … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Holding Faith

You must gather your … Continue reading Weekly Reading: 08/20/2018

Everyday Mysticism: Embracing That Creative Urge

The other day, actress Louise Jameson shared a quote from Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., on Twitter that made me smile. Since the quote she shared was slightly edited, I will post the full (funnier, and much snarkier) original below the break. If you want to really hurt your parents, and you don’t have the nerve to … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Embracing That Creative Urge

Weekly Reading: 08/13/2018

Sometimes, the only way out of a bind is to stop. Struggling against invisible ropes will only get you more tightly knotted, but if you pause a moment, you may see a way to extricate yourself. Better yet, reach out to a friend. Each of you brings a different perspective to the table, and together … Continue reading Weekly Reading: 08/13/2018
