in case your week could use a shot of truth, here's one straight-up, The Invitation, an otherworldly one from Oriah Mountain Dreamer.
you don’t have to be a working mother (like me) to feel guilt.
for me, guilt appears when i’m at my desk (and not with my little one).
and for me, guilt appears when i’m with my little one and feel i’m not working hard enough, earning more or serving my clients better.
maybe yours shows up slightly differently. maybe you’re torn between work and working out. or self-care and caring for your beloved. or tending to your family and tending to your ailing mother.
a couple months ago, i was invited by Your Tango to create a series of videos along with John Gray (the Mars/Venus guy) and some other great minds/hearts in the relationship sphere and i'd love to share a hot one with you today … it's on jealousy.
jealousy's a hard one. some say THE hardest one.
i say it can be a blessing. i say, throw your jealousy a party.
NOW IS THE TIME
Now is the time to know
That all you do is sacred.
(this article was first published in New York Spirit Magazine (October/November 2007) in my then column titled, Enlightened Sex in the City)
since i write this grandly titled column, Enlightened Sex in the City, i figure it couldn’t hurt to start by trying to pin down this slippery eel, “enlightenment.” the term for me is a bit like “carbs,” which includes equally a piece of Wonder Bread or a fresh peach, two very different animals indeed. as i see it, on one hand, enlightenment is a realization of one’s Self with a capital “S”, being awake to one’s nature, or an abiding realization of what does not die when mind and body does.
