Carpe Articulum -- Seize the Moment

Carpe Articulum — Seize the Moment

Write By:

The Latin phrase Carpe Diem (seize the day) was first attributed to a poem written by the famed Roman poet Horace during the reign of Augustus.  It gained fresh awareness for many of us by the actor Robin Williams in the 1989 movie Dead Poets Society. Williams, an English professor, challenges his class of boys to be cognizant of the opportunities that are contained within every moment, “to gather ye rosebuds while you may.”  Herding the boys  around a trophy case filled with pictures of  young athletes of yesteryear, he quips, “These......

A Spiritual Stretch – Beyond the Backyard

A Spiritual Stretch – Beyond the Backyard

Write By:

When I was a young child growing up with my two brothers in Colorado, my parents set many boundaries to keep us safe.  One such boundary was that when we were little, we were to play in our own backyard.  I am sure they had removed everything obviously dangerous from the yard and they had it fenced to keep us from wandering beyond this haven of safety.  I can remember being very content playing on the 1960’s metal swing set, digging in the sandbox and jumping on an old tractor inner tube......

Universal Tough Love

Universal Tough Love

Write By:

The influential mythologist Joseph Campbell once offered this, “The Universe always strikes you at your weakest point because that’s what most needs strengthening.” Although the word ‘strike’ is an interesting choice, Campbell is relaying that the Universe perpetually offers us the chance to evolve. One might even say, It insists on it. Generally our fears are exaggerations of limitation in a landscape of infinite potentiality. Through fear we see the world as an unfair punch to the gut, a strike, yet the Universe will not stop showcasing one wondrous manifestation after another through......

The Eighth Wonder of the World

The Eighth Wonder of the World

Write By:

  Like many others, I’ve gone to Hawaii to “get away from it all,” to seek the wonders of the world through nature, and to connect more deeply with my inner peace and spirit, which at times seems so difficult to do in the hustle and bustle of our day-to-day existence. On returning, I fully and humbly realize that I have just spent special time with some of the most beautiful, pristine, precious,sacred, serene, and amazingly unique expressions of Life on the planet, all of which I felt deeply inspired by and spiritually connected with. I bet you think......

Healing Through Parenting

Healing Through Parenting

Write By:

My teen-age years were filled with emotional wounds and many are still just barely scabbed over. Looking back now, I know that I had many judgments and expectations about what I wanted from life, and perceptions of what actually happened as good or bad. I have the luxury of looking back with wisdom and see that none of it was actually bad. I can now see those experiences as blessings and everything that they have created in me, in the present. Then there are those wounds from not yet healed places that seem......

Second Chances

Second Chances

Write By:

I am grateful for my body every day – that I have the ability to move and be alive. There was a time I feared that would not be the case. Three years ago I was diagnosed with an aggressive triple negative breast cancer. I was barely 31, the producer of a party company, directing a nonprofit organization, and living with my boyfriend (whose mother was also fighting breast cancer; only she was in stage IV). It was a major awakening. I seriously considered moving to the Eastern hemisphere to explore natural......

Your Ripple Effect

Your Ripple Effect

Six Degrees of Separation Is Not That Far Between You and What Really Matters“The idea that everything is purposeful really changes the way you live. To think that everything that you do has a ripple effect, that every word that you speak, every action that you make affects other people and the planet.”~ Victoria Moran Do you see your life and what you do with it as “purposeful”? With all that is happening around our planet and between nations it’s easy to perceive our individual selves as insignificant and, in the process,......

Conscious Choice: The Engine of Your Evolution

Man is made or unmade by himself. By the right choice he ascends. As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, he holds the key to every situation. — James Allen As a spiritual mentor, part of my job is to challenge the people I work with to consciously observe their BS (belief system) and challenge any current beliefs they hold that are keeping them stuck in a mental prison of their own making. The moment is quite interesting to witness when they discover that......

Service in Leadership

  Twenty-first century global reality has placed the world’s citizens in a unique position. With the internet comes instant access to information, and social media brings the world right to us. As economic and cultural shifts continue to take place, old models of top-down hierarchies are quickly fading, and a new kind of leadership is needed. While we in general are smarter, more consumer-savvy and less willing to take an authority’s word at face value, we can also feel overwhelmed in light of the sheer amount of information thrown our way, and......
