This Week’s Food For Thought

Change requires leaving our comfort zones and plunging headfirst into uncomfortable situations.

True, this causes some pain and discomfort for a moment, but it’s the quickest path to generating long-term fulfillment.

Today, when challenges overwhelm you, keep going and know there’s Light right behind them.


A student once approached a sage who was well-versed in the spiritual doctrines and mystical arts. He asked the master to teach him all the sublime secrets of life – to explain all the magnificent mysteries of the cosmos that are hidden in all the holy books.

And he asked if all this could be done in the time that a person can remain balanced on one leg.

The great sage carefully considered this request. He smiled warmly and

“Love thy neighbor as thyself. All the rest is commentary. Now go and learn.”

Go and learn today.


There are people in your life who really need you and are counting on you to be there for them, without judgment or expectations. When you show up for them – even when they don’t show up for you in the same way – the Light will show up for you when you need it most.

Today, throw “what have you done for me lately” out the window. Be there, heart open, no questions asked.


Time past is irreplaceable. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. But today, today is precious.

Give yourself permission to enjoy today. Take a mental snow day. Do something that gives you pleasure.
