Although intimacy is usually a term we use in relationships, it can also relate to ourselves...

"Intimacy happens when you can share your authenticity in the most vulnerable way possible without risk of judgment."

How often must one recreate romance in order to keep the relationship grounded in love?

"Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever."
~ Leo Buscaglia

Make the effort worth it...

"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same."
~ Carlos Castaneda

Through education, we can unlearn the old beliefs that no longer serve us...

"How can we advance the sense of our common humanity? Through education. We must share responsibility for meeting the problems like climate change, depletion of natural resources and expanding population that affect us all. To limit our concern to our own nation alone is out of date. Technology has already contributed to creating a global community."
~ The Dalai Lama

Becoming a responsible adult that wants to make the world a better place isn't easy to accomplish...

"With computers, in order to reformat to original function and optimize capacity, one must delete programs and data that slow it down or take over its power in a way that doesn't serve it, reorganize files, then empty the trash bin. 

With humans, it requires unlearning beliefs and patterns that no longer serve us, re-prioritizing what does, then detaching ourselves from or redefining those people, places and things that no longer bring us joy or fuel our passion. Coming from a place of love rather than fear/anger/hate, gratitude rather than greed, empowerment rather than disenfranchisement and kindness rather than criticism, makes the painful process of transformation much easier."

First. Listen.

"When did we forget how to have conscious disagreement, to make our voice known without attacking anyone for their opinions? When did we forget how to just listen? I only ask that we be respectful of each other, to really listen to someone else’s point of view without getting defensive or making someone else wrong. That way, we can all feel safe to be ourselves."
~ Lissa Rankin

The destiny of your life begins when you travel within, finding the hidden map that will lead you to the treasure!

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.”
~ Brian Tracy

When did we forget that the USA is a creation of the people, by the people, for the people?

"The source of power in America is not the government; the source of power is us."

~ Marianne Williamson

Hate, anger or fear will not bring peace, love or joy...

"The heart of all spiritual teaching is simple:
Be Love.
Be Peace.
Be Harmony.
Be Compassion.
Be Joy."

~ Rumi (photo by Melody, courtesy of Brave Girls' Club)

In order for hope to exist, we need to connect to our tribe ~ divisiveness eliminates hope...

"Hope is a gift that you give someone else by believing in them."

~ Patrice Brewer (artwork by Irina Karkabi)

All life exists and is expressed in energy & frequency...


"There are a set of vibrations or frequencies, you can call them the physical plane, the astral plane, the causal plane, and that which is beyond the beyond."

~ Ram Dass

How many of us have lived a large part of our lives needing to be needed?


"Caretaking is a habit that is easy to fall into that seems benign on the surface. But the truth is when we are caretaking we are acting out of a need to be needed: we believe others can't do it without us. Caretaking is actually more about self-importance than empowering others. The art of service comes when we deeply listen, set our own opinion aside, and open for how we can support and ignite another's inspiration and passion."


~ Heather Ash Amara
