What Gives You Meaning in Your Life?

Contributing to the new humanity gives me meaning beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. I write books, give events, and create programs to teach about creating authentic power—aligning the personality with the soul so that we can transform ourselves with our own wills instead of trying to change others. I am filled with meaning […]

Join the Conversation

Our work with spiritual partnership has been a truly amazing adventure that continues to evolve every day. As we give workshops and continue to experience the profound transformations many of you are having, we realize that spiritual partnership is a practice that we are each creating together at this exciting time in human history—and each […]

What are Spiritual Partnerships?

Spiritual partnerships are the most fulfilling, substantive, and deep relationships possible. They are relationships between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth. Growing spiritually means creating a life of more joy and less pain, more meaning and less emptiness, and more love and less fear. As we become aware of ourselves as more than we […]

The Winter Solstice

At the Winter Solstice the night is longest and the day is shortest. Cold envelops the Earth, trees are naked, the sky is grey, and the ground is frozen. When my life feels like that, even in the summer when the sun is bright and the breeze is warm, a Winter Solstice is there for […]

Now and Forever the Deepest Cause

Blaming right wing politicians and commentators for the Arizona massacre, even those that are righteously brutal, cruel, and inciting to violence, deflects attention from its real cause. Blaming anyone always deflects attention from the real cause. Like our dysfunctioning economy, schools, health care, and businesses, the killing and maiming in Arizona has a deeper and […]

Signal and Noise

The signal-to-noise ratio tells us how clearly we receive information. Little noise and mostly signal is good. Satellite, cell phone, and TV reception are clear. Static, cross-talk, and other signals are bad. The signal is blocked. Anger, jealousy, superiority, entitlement, inferiority, need to please, obsessive thoughts (She’s so stupid; I’m so stupid), compulsive activities (workaholism; […]

A Safer And Better World With Or Without Osama Bin Laden

The world is not a better or safer place because Osama bin Laden is gone from it. Nothing has changed. Violence has created violence, which has created violence, in an endless chain whose origin is insignificant. What matters is what we do now. That is always what matters. Shall we hate those who hate us or shall […]

The IMF, Sex, And Authentic Power

The worlds of politics and gossip are fixated on the arrest and indictment of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), for multiple first-degree felony counts, including committing a criminal sex act, attempted rape and sexual abuse – all on a maid in a $3,000.00 a night hotel suite during a visit to […]

Gratitude for Oprah

Oprah first called me a few years after The Seat of the Soul was published. I lived in a small mountain town, I didn’t have a TV, and the town cable didn’t offer ABC anyway, so I didn’t recognize her name when she called. We talked another time or two over the next seven or so years, […]

Compassion and Congress

As anger at the taxpayer-funded salvage of America’s largest banks and most inefficient industries exploded into rage over enormous reductions in care to the most vulnerable people in America – the young, poor, ill, and frail – the focus of rage and ridicule has become Congress.In a simpler time, addressing self-serving members of Congress might […]
