Find Peace in Connection

Meditating on the idea of peace, and I was reminded that it comes when everyone remembers their connection to each other. It is recognizing “The Source”, or God, in each living thing (including other species, plants, the ocean, the earth…). Mother Teresa understood it.

Know Your Ignorance

Embrace your ignorance! (But please don’t do it by putting yourself or others in harm’s way.) To learn, to grow, you have to KNOW there is an ignorance within that can only be filled through knowledge. You needn’t only bury your face in books to gain knowledge. Learning is brought…

A Gift We Only Get Once

I was ranting about something a career politician from an oil baron family said in response to Pope Francis’ encyclical on the climate and the need for nations to take action to care for the planet and all living upon it. The oil baron said that climate change, while he…
