I grew up in Newark, NJ and was one of six children. I have been married for twenty four years. I own a home and I have two children. I have been at the same job for twenty seven years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part.

Sending out an SOS
Every time the mind becomes distracted and reaches for something it thinks it needs, it equates to a sinking ship sending out an SOS; the reaching is one’s call for help. Unfortunately most times the reason for the need to send out an SOS goes unnoticed until the ship is...

Life Simply Is
Life Simply Is: The mind loves to make a problem out of something that can’t be changed. The reality of any situation is if it can’t be changed there’s not much one can do so it’s not really a problem. Many things are labeled a problem, but that’s only because...

Being Prepared
Without preparation, the constant pull of attachment will be the norm and so will an agitated mind. Sitting to develop discipline assist so when one’s conditioning is triggered, it’s not as easily given into. Although life doesn’t personally test you, at times it seems like it does. From death, sickness,...

Living from the heart stops the need to reach because the heart doesn’t beat in the past or future, it only beats now. When one is in touch with the heart, there is simply living in the only place that exist. To me there is no saving the world, spreading...

One Week Today
The only time one struggles with someone’s passing is when it’s looked at it from the point of I. There is peace in my mother’s passing and it comes from her because she is no longer suffering. It’s been a week since my mother has passed and although she is...

Childlike Innocence
Our inner child is innocent, loving, and caring. The more the self serving mind is in control, the more one is claimed by worldly desires and possessions and the less one is aware of their childlike innocence. Everyday is a time to reflect on one’s childlike innocence. We’re all born...

A Logical Life
A logical mind sees that things are as they are mostly because of the lack of discipline that a quiet mind provides. Logic allows the mind to settle into a state that’s pure, innocent, and free. Life really isn’t a mystery it’s logical, so logically looking at it, it seems...

Repeated Mind Patterns

Alignment With Now
When one is in alignment with Now, there’s alignment with life. When you’re pulled out of this alignment, it’s at this point that the door is opened to allow all kinds of nonsense from the Conditioned Mind. Spirituality isn’t magical, it’s one’s true essence. If one is alive, one is...

Attachment is the root of all suffering. It disguises itself as depression and many other things. If it’s not understood it’s all self created, the attachment just gets more deeply engrained.

Carry Only a Message

Conflict With Oneself
All conflicts are within, they arise from one’s inner questions. Without the practice of discipline, the inner answers won’t be provided so one will have to look externally and blame others.

Peace: A Showcase to Love

Delusional Feelings and Emotions

Attachment to Form

Unconsciousness is ignorance and although there’s no bliss in being ignorant, there is a certain innocence in not knowing what you don’t know. Until what you don’t know becomes known you just won’t know. Everything arises from the stillness of life, but it’s at that exact time that there will...

Present Moment Distractions
To be present in the moment is to be with what’s occurring at this exact time. A distraction will arise when the mind becomes agitated because discipline was never developed to be in the moment. Some say there isn’t a choice to be made as to whether there’s discipline that...

Truth is Love

Taking on God's Role

Judging Energy
