THIS MONTH’S TOPIC
Here we are – in 2018!
How has the New Year been unfolding for you so far?
Since my last Newsletter in December, I’ve been thinking, talking, writing and living more deeply into my theme for this year, “Holding The Space”; and, as I do, what’s emerging for me is SIMPLICITY.
In my ongoing exploration of open-ended questions, such as “How can I make this day the best that it can be?”, I’ve come to realize that the ONLY thing holding me back from (joy)fully living in the present is my fear-based limited thinking, such as “It’s All or Nothing”, or “There isn’t enough/I am not enough”.
And, the simplest question that I can ask to get present is, “What’s the most loving thing that I can do right now, with Ease and Grace and Joy?”
It could be something loving that I do for myself, or for someone else – it really doesn’t matter. (We ARE all One, after all!) What DOES matter is that I trust the answers that come to me… and, as I do, the more present and happier I am.
YES, YAY and AMEN!
SO – with gratitude and curiosity – I continue to Hold the Space for SIMPLICITY.
In honour of SIMPLICITY, here is a short medley of chants I recorded at Unity of Vancouver a few years ago; may it serve you well.

How about YOU, dear Friend? What’s most resonating in YOU this month?
WHEREVER you are on your journey, I’d love to hear from you.
Please e-mail me; we’re all in this together, and we have much to learn from each other.
