One morning this past winter I went in to wake my boys up for school.
LISTEN TO THE EXTENDED PODCAST VERSION OF THIS EMAIL
My eldest didn't look so well.
The whites of his eyes were red and he had bags under his eyes.
"Mom, I don't feel so good," he said.
He told me his stomach and head hurt.
I knew right away this wasn't a scheme to miss school and watch TV all day long.
I felt his head and he was hot.
Fevers are the body's defense mechanism to help it heal and fight the infection that's happening in the body.
One of the worst things we can do it stop it.

I drew him a bath, put some salts in, and plopped him in with a cold wet town upon his forehead.
He lay in the tub still and quietly moaning.
My heart hurt.
No mother ever wants to see her baby in pain.
Thankfully I trusted that I could take care of him and I...
I saw this posted on Instagram.
It reminds me of years ago when I was in a race.

A race to get healthier, happier, and more fulfilled.
I had no idea that I was racing against myself.
For so long I felt like I was just trying to keep up with the world.
My mind was flooded with to-dos and overwhelmed with self-criticism.
I could never live up to my own expectations.
I was hyper-focused on keeping up my image and social media and trying not to drown in my habitual and negative thinking.
I would rush through everything.
It was like I had very little time to do anything and everything.
I always felt overwhelmed and lived in my manic monkey mind.
Running myself ragged took its toll on my body, my relationships, and especially my relationship with myself.
My kids were suffering from all this rushing.
You can see this rushed energy everywhere.
The rush to...
Hello Generous Soul,
I think it's easy to forget the good in the world.
So many of us get wrapped up in what's not working that we can't even see the beauty of life around us.
The news, social media, maybe our neighbors and family tend to focus on reporting fear, illusions, and scarcity.
BREAKING NEWS always happening, media manipulating the masses into mass psychosis who have forgotten reality and see through a fuzzy and filthy lens.
Then we take our annoyed, frustrated, and scared personalities into the world and project it upon everyone else we forget that the veil of fear is easily taken off so that the truth can be revealed.
The truth that love is only what is real.
I'm reading one of my favorite books, so far, by Jack Kornfield, The Wise Heart, A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology.
It was recommended to me by my youngest's guide at school.
Does that ever happen to you?
BE A CONSCIOUS CREATOR!
We look at matter as solid or whole, but did you know that everything that we see in the material world is comprised of 99.9999999% EMPTY space?
The human eye can only see .0035% of the electromagnetic spectrum. Our eyes are wondrous... but they have fundamental limits to what we can see. Humans are basically blind! We cannot conceive of all that is. It's impossible.
Not only do we not see all that is, our perceptions, a remarkable phenomenon, specifically shape our view of the world. Our perceptions distort reality as you observe the world through your self-made filters (past experiences, belief systems, and circumstances).
When we can truly understand how everyone sees things differently, we can cultivate compassion and understanding for other's views we don't agree with!
This is an important and relevant topic in our world today! SO much polarity and fear, it's VITAL we see through the illusion and seek OUR truth and allow the truth of other's to be just...
