White Christmas

   Here it is a wonderful White Christmas! I still can't believe how light and airy the snow is here. Five inches of fresh powder snow. To me it is a joy to even shovel. I do not often miss skiing but I do today.

A girl with a song and a boy with a story.

 A Christmas full moon. What joy life brings these days! I hope to live long enough to see the next full moon Christmas in 2034 and will be able to celebrate it with as much health joy and happiness as I have today. The simple words in this writing have truly become the words in my life to live by. All I have in my life, my joy, my happiness, my home, health, and love are because of living these truths. I guess everything in life happens for a reason and I know that everyone always says that they wouldn't change anything in their life and I am one of them. If I hadn't found my sobriety and come to my own truth in life I wouldn't be with my beautiful wife today or have the life I have. When we met I was a wandering writer with a story to tell and she was a girl with a song and so goes the happy ending. I truly have found my destiny and am at great peace in my world. I hope that for this Christmas and New Year you find the joy and happiness that you deserve.

Create Your Future

     I know it sounds simple. It is not. Controlling your negative thoughts and emotions is extremely hard. They will pull you from your centeredness. Meditation in any form will help. There are many forms of meditation and I suggest you study and follow a path. It was simple for me my Guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, found me. He found me in the form of his book Autobiography of a Yogi. ( The only book Steve Jobs downloaded to his IPad.) I saw his face on a book on the end cap of a shelf in a book store in Telluride, Colorado after a writing conference. I was inexplicably drawn to the radiance of his face and immediately became a devotee.  I read his book, starting taking his lessons and was initiated in Kria Yoga and became a Yogi of the Self-Realization Fellowship a few short years later. It has changed my thoughts and my life for the better. You do not have to become a Yogi. It is how I am wired, I have always taken everything to the extreme. I can honestly say that my extremes are a thing of the past. I live and exist in the moment and the day. It doesn't mean that I don't have the highs and lows of life as you live it, they are just shorter and I always return to my mediation and energization exercises daily in the morning and the evening. It has allowed me the freedom in Life to finally pursue the goals and dreams I have always longed to pursue but have never applied myself to becoming. It is a long journey, and one that I am committed to with my entire heart and soul. I hope that you find your happiness and joy your world.

Finding the Portal

   When you find the portal that you are seeking it is important to step through and to not look back. Change is inevitable and necessary for growth. Understanding your dreams and aspirations are important to seeing them through to fruition. If you do not have alignment with your vision than you cannot achieve your goals. Through centeredness and concentration enlightenment is attainable.

   Allow yourself the time to dream. Allow the Universe to provide the opportunity to move forward. Recognize the time when decisions must be made and make them focusing on God's Will and leave yours out of it.

   These day's my White Dreams of youth have melted away. The Equine Dreams of my Adulthood have galloped away. The Teaching Dreams of Old Age are alive and living in Simple Peace Hermitage in Assisi, Italy. The link appeared in our e-mail and presented itself as property for sale. We have dreamed of a new school and grounds to teach from and this was heaven sent. Since it has been presented, I trust in the the Lord to provide the means to attain it. Just when you think you are making all the decisions in your life, life presents the next domain for attainment. You must move forward and accept the challenge when it arises.

Welcoming The Winter Winds Of Change

   You feel it on your neck, across your skin, in your eyes, through your hair. The soft whispering winds of change. You look up and around and you suddenly realize that from that moment on something in life has changed. You move forward and understand that there has been a shift. Sometimes very small sometimes very big. These days I welcome the change with open arms.
   I thought that perhaps the title might be "Barbarians at the Gate." A title already used but one that needs to be taken seriously. I feel as if we are living in the last day's of the Fall and Decline of the Roman Empire. We as a Nation are trying trying to sustain major wars not within our borders and with the rise of Isil are making a major commitment to long term wars draining our young men and women and our financial well being as a nation.

   The change in my life is the realization of the commitment I need to make to move forward. I welcome the Winds of Change with open arms and heart.
