Do you have a Personal Code of Ethics?

As a recovering woman the years have brought me many challenges.  Always in search of the easier, softer way, I have discovered the direct path works every time.  When we seek to “fix,” rather than experience our lives become complicated.  Problems are a natural part of our lives.  However, lessons in coping with the many […]

Spiritual Practice & Spirituality

Spirituality, spiritual practices, what are they?  How would you define Spirituality? Google Trends shows the search for the term spirituality at its highest in 2004.  Today it is barely a word used in search terms.  Yet, when you do conduct a Google search the links are extensive.  The first page of the search shows educational […]

Developing a spiritual path is rewarding, though not always easy. The belief that once drugs, alcohol, self-abusive behaviors, and other forms of addictions are removed life becomes easier magically appears. There are many who are convinced that it is the drugs, alcohol, or other substances that is the root of all his or her problems. […]


Acceptance is Key

Three Minutes a Day
