We Americans defend the right to think our own thoughts and go our own ways; our brothers and sisters died for that right. Now though, it may be time to rethink those rights - because unless we share them equally, they are not rights -but the leverages of some over others. None of us is so blind that we do not see black and brown people having less opportunity than whites, and being...

The absolute best of who you are is automatic, it is present within you—you feel it and you know it. There’s no question about who you are; no question about your magnificence; no question about the flow of grace coming through you and touching the rest of us. You are special. Please trust yourself, and trust that the spirit of greatness is in you as the presence of the living god....

They couldn’t access the deep canyon when they built the housing project on the mesa, so they left it alone, wild and untouched. When the projects filled with families, almost no one entered its steep wildness; it was too dark looking, and who knows what could be living down there?
I was a boy; it’s edge was a hundred feet from my back door and I could be hidden in its wilds within...

Shouldn’t we be practicing our smiles now? Here is some help….
As I sat, strapped in my seat waiting during the countdown, one thought kept crossing my mind .... every part of this rocket was supplied by the lowest bidder. -John Glenn
When the white missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, 'Let us pray.' We closed our eyes. When we opened them w...

It was a cold, rainy day when the man saw an old lady on the side of the road with a flat tire. He pulled his rattling pickup over and got out. He looked poor and hungry and he could see she was frightened,
My name is Mike Johnson , ma’am, and I’m just here to help you. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm?
It was a nice car and expensive; Mike skinned his knuckles crawling...

Rumi, born in 1207 is one of the world’s most loved of all poets and spiritual philosophers and was teaching wisdom more than eight hundred years ago.

What is poison? - Anything beyond what we need is poison. It can be power, laziness, food, ego, ambition, fear, rage or whatever.

The power of one’s will is amazing. Human history is filled with the truths of heroic facts accomplished by willpower: a woman lifting a car off her child, a swimming man staying afloat for days in a stormy sea, a child surviving for weeks lost in the wilderness. When we will something, we have unleashed a mighty, creative power toward its creation. When our intention and will are a...

Tell those who say you’re too old, too young, the wrong race, the wrong gender; tell them to go ask Tara Lipinski her thoughts. This fourteen-year-old girl challenged the veteran superstar skaters of the world and beat them in The World Skating Championship. A fluke? The next year she again faced them all, this time in the Olympics, and they were ready for her; yet again they undere...

How could you be anything other than blessed? Has there ever been, or will ever be another you; another person with your delicate fingerprints, with your eyes, your brain structure, voice, and viewpoint? You are blessed because you are singular and unique; you see and think and do as no other person ever has. Your life is being guided by holy spirit, the creative force that brought...

I have often been surprised by the enormity of character I find hiding in individuals. As a firefighter and emergency medical technician, I was often amazed by the heroism of people who were injured and even dying. Again and again I was made to see that within each of us is a depth of spirit that is boundless. We give medals to individuals who have done the extraordinary, but what i...
