Breakthrough Full Moon

Breakthrough.  At first I was disturbed to see that the first definition on dictionary.com uses war language: “a military movement or advance all the way through and beyond an enemy's front-line defense.”  Yet the more I thought about breakthrough from this angle, I saw that when we are longing for a breakthrough in our lives, we are at war with some part of ourselves.  We have a vision, an idea, a desire … yet we defend our current position … [Read more...]

“How can I be blasé about my 5 star view of the Pacific Ocean?  What’s wrong with me?” I wondered, sipping my coffee on an overcast morning.  I used to greet my Auntie Pacifica each day and observe her state of mind.  Was she ruffled by the wind, smooth and silky, blue or gray?  Lately, I barely notice my view that millions of people only get to experience on vacation.  Talk about a guilt & gulp moment.
