People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson Our relationship with our world is the overriding template for our relationship with everything. A bold statement, yes, but when you earnestly combine the infallible workings of spiritual law to the way in which we each operate in life, then you can see the truth in Emerson’s words. The most powerful thing any of us can ever remember and then apply is the fact that it is never about anything......

With the worlds eyes on Maya, one could come across one breathless quote after another penned throughout her literary career. If you never read any of her six memoirs or spent time savoring the words of her poetry, you might fail to see the immense foundation of a life lived from unabated genius. Her New York Times obituary gives a provocative glimpse of the obvious successes and the blistering failures she seemingly embraced with equal fervor. If you did not read it, please do. She once wrote, “Nothing will work unless you......

The inhabitants of Troy tyrannized the ancient Greeks for many years. Fueled by an undeniable demand for independence, the Greeks staged an elaborate plan to win back their freedom. Many of them appeared to flee by sea, leaving behind a monument – a wooden horse of enormous proportion. Amused by the Greeks decision to run away, the soldiers of Troy boastfully claimed the horse as a victory trophy and, by trolley and rope, wheeled it into their cities heavily guarded compound. During the night, those who had appeared to leave by sea......

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. When it is over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” – Mary Oliver Living large, behaving boldly – those are more than just motivational phrases reserved for some cheesy poster on......

The challenge is neither good nor bad, it’s simply a time that shines a spotlight on my dichotomous emotions and makes me dive deeper regarding a greater clarity surrounding my purpose. People ‘get’ children, the needs of children and their hearts act organically making our goals easily attainable. My question is how do I transfer that same flow to our mission and vision here?......

The famous composer Beethoven, began losing his hearing in his late twenties. He experienced the early signs of tinnitus which results in excessive ringing, whistling and high-pitched roaring in one’s ears. After awhile his hearing was completely gone, yet he continued to compose for decades. There is much to the story regarding his physical torment, anguish and ultimate surrender to his physical condition. There also exists here a powerful testament to the undaunted ability of creation to find its way when it has a willing subject. Experiencing the roar of our own......
