An Open Letter

We will all face death and judgment one day. The stress of our souls comes from our awareness. There is life after this one, and we need to prepare for it.   Inner peace is something incredibly hard to achieve, even to explain. You have to train your mind not to be phased by something […]

An Open Letter

  The Storm Rages On   The noise of the storm Has become much too loud Consider the stirring The rage of the crowd We can’t underestimate All that goes on   It isn’t the first time Sadly It won’t be the last History repeats itself If we haven’t learned   Our time is limited […]

An Open Letter

Hang in there!   The Novel Corona Pandemic is a thief. Among the things it snatches away are the connections that feed passion, contentment, belonging, and all of the other variations of love. Families are separated, cities and towns are silenced, and places of worship are locked.   In a time of distancing due to […]

I am an Overcomer, but I have help.   The goal of Sunday Soul-Lutions has always been and is a weekly reminder for all of us to remember:  You are not your behavior. You are not your struggle. You are not your worst mistake. You are not your past. You are not what has been […]

A simple rule everyone can understand, if we try to impress at any cost, we are disguising ourselves.   If we disguise ourselves, our essence dies. No one deserves to […]

An Open Letter

No one could have anticipated the veracity of Hurricane Dorian and its cruel, angry decent on the Bahamas. They have gone through countless hurricanes, and on the eve of Dorian, they knew the drill. Board up your home, secure your belongings, and stock up on food, water, non-perishable items and snacks. However, no one could […]

An Open Letter

Childhood gifted me with a number of unhealthy survival mechanisms which still follow me around today:  a deep fear of conflict because for me conflict meant someone would leave. Constant apologies and guilt I am not responsible for and a voice in the back of my mind telling me no matter what I do, who […]
