Because I’ve been in love enough to know that love is in side me, and doesn’t come from someone else. It’s something we feel and reveal when we connect with a special person or pet.
I had a wonderful feeling of love every day for more than 17 years that I shared my home with Lia, an amazing, intelligent, incredibly sweet cat. She died a couple of years ago, and I did not replace her. Sometimes I still miss her so much my eyes fill with tears. And I am deeply grateful to have had so much time with her. She taught me a lot about love. Continue reading “Living In Love”
How does ants searching for an urban myth of a sweet potato mother lode have to do with spiritual awareness? There is a parallel.
Like many of us, ants invaded my kitchen during the heavy rains. I had enjoyed about 10 ant-free years in my home. They had only invaded once before. Since I don’t use chemicals to eradicate them, I resort to other methods.

What is a mental equivalent and why would I want one?
A Mental Equivalent is a mental and emotional vision, thought, or feeling of something. It is how we view and experience our world.
For example, if I say the word “chair” you have at least one mental equivalent for what a chair is, what it looks like, and what it’s for. You might imagine an office chair, a folding chair, a recliner, an overstuffed comfy lounging chair, or some other variety. But you have an idea for “chair”.

So we each have a mental equivalent of our health, finances, relationships, ourselves, work and career, everything. It is our mental template for how we see and experience the world. Most of these ideas or mental equivalents work for us. But sometimes they need a tune-up in order to improve an area of our lives. Continue reading “Mental Equivalent”
