Pain and Suffering –Difficult, Difficult, Difficult

Posted On Aug 20 2017 by

Clearly you can see, pain is guaranteed, but suffering being optional can be less clear. Layman Pang in the Zen Koan says when confronted by life, “Difficult, difficult, difficult.”  You and I have long lists of physical and emotional pains in our normal lives.  Worries and pains around family.  Pain of aging – ours and that of our loved ones.  Pains of day to day injuries, and perhaps an occasional surgery. Some of the pain that I experience comes from watching the craziness with our minority president.  His statements supporting white supremacy after the Charlottesville murder of Heather Heyer by …


Why Worry? Read this tip here.

Posted On Oct 6 2016 by

You may know that I’m a recovering worrywart.  I’m fairly far along in my recovery.  But I find that avoiding news coverage of things I cannot change, helps. This US election cycle has grabbed me though.  I worry.  It’s not good.  Besides casting my vote for the candidate of my choice, and urging others to do the same, I’m powerless. In my morning meditation, this came to mind, a set of scenes from the excellent film – Bridge of Spies. I share this clip with you. I share this clip with you. Keep breathing. May you be happy, wild, and …


Learn about Fear

Posted On Sep 8 2016 by

A friend wrote saying, “I’m  freaking out about not having enough money.  Lots of clients recently have experienced similar fears.  My response might be useful for you. Dear Friend, We all need to find a strategy or strategies to handle fear.  Your current freak out about money raises the point.  What I tell clients is that the minute you know you’re scared, notice that you’re freaking out, you’re 90% home free.  Until then, you’re just driven and possessed by it. The recent construction downstairs below my office put me into fight-flight that I’m still digging out of.  I’m not scared …

Labyrinth Insights Free You

Posted On Sep 15 2012 by

My youngest daughter, Sasha, starts attending Washington State University as a 31 year old freshman this week.  Worry is not required, but as a recovering worrier, I worry about her.   One of the ways I heal myself, make myself more whole, is by making pilgrimages.  Often on my pilgrimages, I find and walk labyrinths.  Pullman has a wonderful labyrinth on top of a hill with 100 mile vistas looking out over the rolling wheat fields of the Palouse.  Just before dawn, I walked the labyrinth each day I was in Pullman helping her move in.  These insights came:  “A labyrinth …


Magic Potions for Handling Fear

Posted On Jul 6 2012 by

I wrote this for The New Spirit Journal. It’s an excerpt from the current book I’m working on – How to Overcome Fear and Stop Worrying.  You can see their posting –  http://bit.ly/LTcNP1. In the 1930s, English physician Edward Bach discovered a way to work with flowers that will help you gracefully handle your fears. He rendered flowers he found in his countryside into effective remedies. Now called the Bach Flower Remedies, I call them magic potions. I have used them to good effect with my family, clients, and myself for decades, sometimes with astounding results. They can make a …
