I would like to have a safe space to share my thoughts
For reconciliation among neighbors. For people to be kind to one another. For wisdom and truth to be honored. And of course, wanting to see love among all beings everywhere….
To re-member. To open up more to vulnerability and to Love.
My heart is yearning for insights about a variety of deep philosophical questions-these ones in particular:
1. Is Universalism compatible with free will?
2. Is forgiveness always possible, even in cases of bodily trauma responses that make forgiveness difficult?
3. Do prayer and the Law of Attraction really work (fun fact: the Law of Attraction has its roots in Hinduism!)? If so, why have intercessory prayer studies shown otherwise?
4. Where are the boundaries between cultural appreciation and cultural misappropriation? How do we navigate that issue?
5. Is it possible to have a Christology with a realized eschatology without supersessionism?
6. How do I manage my anxiety when running races and preaching? And how do I run faster like I did in college?
To travel and explore, feel free and enjoy the now
Oh my….. For tyrants to fall; for the common good to inspire leadership; for justice for the poor and oppressed. For all of that – and for the persistence of hope and faith in my heart.
Peace, love, happiness.
Love, Joy, Peace
To be understood, respected, and accepted.
Expression. It is usually identified with Love. So, to Love.
In a rough patch here – yearning to be seen, to be heard, for reciprocity in relationship.
Uncluttered peace in my life and home. (I just need the courage to throw stuff away!!!)
Acceptance and belonging – especially as I start a new journey that I am anxious about taking
It’s National Sacher Torte Day – I never heard of it and would love a place local who makes it to try it – sounds delicious! (layering apricot jam between a rich, chocolate sponge cake and topped it with a layer of chocolate icing.)
Happy World Soil Day to Holly and Javier!
Thank you, Michele! Let’s celebrate soil with a bit of that Sacher Torte, please! 😋
Were you able to try any?
Hi Michele! My daughter in law makes a very delicious one for family birthdays 🙂
Yes, dear heart. Praying for you.
To hold close and never loose sight of the blessings I have received. Health, my family, a warm home.
My heart is yearning for answers….guidance and direction.
For CoVid to go away.
Over the past couple of months, I have learning new ways to better manage my chronic back pain, and it is working. I just finished reading David Hanscom’s newest book, “Back in Control,” which is an excellent introduction to the whole field of neuroplasticity and neurophysiology disorder and the role that the brain plays in how we experience pain. My heart yearns to be able get my lower back pain levels to a better place and these new approaches are so far helping tremendously.
Thank you, Kevin – that’s wonderful news!!!! I’ve just downloaded the kindle version of the book. I’m seeing a doctor about back pain this week. Fortunately for me, it’s much less serious than your back pain, but I’m excited to see what I’ll learn. My most distressing pain is between the shoulder blades – a few vertebrae? The lower back pain comes and goes and distresses me less. The pain between the shoulder blades comes and goes too but distresses me more, if that makes sense.
So happy to hear that it is helping . May I ask what it is that is helping ? Is it stretching ?
Hello Antoinette, I’ve stretching for years, which is helpful for many things as we age, but stretching has done little to relieve my chronic back pain. The science of neurophysiological approach to. pain management is what is helping me now. The science teaches that all pain originates in the brain, and managing how it works and how we respond to it is the key. If you want to share more we can decide to chat more via email, text, cell, or smoke signals (kidding!) But truly, happy to make that happen, just let me know. While I’m new to this new approach, I’ve been dealing with lower back pain for over 12 yrs!!
I patiently long to see my husband Karel again.
